New Black Bow Set


 Midnights With CZ- VI

As a l--nger--e addict, I've come to the conclusion that my most favourite type of br-- are the ones that almost look like tops, or at least a cropped top. Okay, said type of br-- are called b--tiers/longline b--/b--lettes. Also, if kn**kers look like little skirts or have criss-crossy thingies, I am definitely buying.

If you're wondering if I'd wear this b--lette out like a top, I would. Of course, with another black strapless br-- under it (only because it's sheer), and paired with high-waist trousers & maybe a light cardigan or shrug over it, if not a blazer. I wanna try it over a shirt too.

I saw this online & I went craaa-zzzy, because I was confused which size to get - UK 6 or UK 8.
I'm usually a 6, but I just loathe too-tight br--.... plus, I've also gained a bit of weight lately. I was so scared that it'll sell out, because everything I like online seems to sell out in 10 mins.
Finally, I just went to the store to try on both sizes. The lower band doesn't stretch too much, so my first  instinct to go with an 8 was correct.


It's very 'Gianni-Giorgio', as I like to call designer-looking clothes 😀

It reminds me of the top part of the Gaultier number Bella Hadid wore somewhere.

Beauty Haul: Lakmé, MAC, Maybelline, Kiko, Innisfree



Remember a long time ago, when I'd go shopping & then come back home....click pictures....and immediately post them on the blog? I remember I'd go to Boots & Superdrug, and sometimes I left home too late & walked to the city center, and I'd reach there just when they're closing - at 6 PM! I'd stand outside, give them a sad look, and they'd shake their heads & sternly mouth: "No, sorry, we're closed."
This didn't happen just one time, by the way.

Well, those days are back! And luckily, I'm in India now, where shops close at 10 PM! Although, last time I was in Kiko Milano, during the curfew days when shops had to close by 7:45-8 PM, a salesman had to tell me, "Ma'am, please finish soon, we're closing in 15 minutes." - this type of pressure on me made me buy a glitter lip balm, instead of something I'd really use & love, you know.

MAC Powder Kiss Lipsticks : A Little Tamed, Fall In Love


The most addictive lipsticks in my books.
So weightless.
So easy-to-wear.
So tasty (sweet).

Moisture-matte lipsticks that deliver a blur of soft-focus colour, MAC says, 
and they're exactly that.



Fall In Love ~ Bright creamy fuschia. Yes, this is very similar to MAC Retro Matte All Fired Up

A Little Tamed ~ Mid-toned pink with yellow undertones.

Kiko Milano Creamy Colour Comfort Lip Liner 303 Tea Rose


When my previous laptop just died, one of the things I regretted not doing was not posting the photos & swatches I had uploaded to it. They were just GONE. There were a lot of makeup pictures, because I always click before using any new makeup product.
So now, I'm gonna post whatever I click, so they don't just sit there in my computer & just disappear one day.

If It Isn't Pastel, I Don't Want It.....


For my nails, it's either only pastels, sometimes black, or frequently french.

My toenails are done in 5 different pastel shades, most of the time. 

Here are 5 new shades I picked up recently. 
I kinda had to go out & buy them, because most of my favourite nail paints have started 
drying up & bubbling.

All from Colorbar again, of course.

*My ring fingernail broke some time back, btw.
