Holidays Gift Guide 2015!!

Hey guys :)
 Sorry for being MIA lately on our blog. I hope you all are enjoying the change in weather with your teas and dry fruits on your side (tissues too :p ).

  So dolls it's officially the holidays now everywhere in the world and many Brands are showcasing their Holidays collection with different new products and repackaged stuff. Due to this new holiday spirited air in the makeup world, I bundled my passion and came forward with an overview of some of our picks. We are super excited to present you our Holiday Gift Guide, 2015.

 Shopping online or going out to the mall, its always about your own choices and decisions, as everyone has different style and fashion sense. When there are so many new tempting products infront of you to pick, it is always a battle deciding what you should buy.We hope that this overview acts as a guide for you guys if you are flustered by holidays products and want something for yourself. Without further ado lets get started with our picks and guide for you guys:

Mac Extra Dimension Skin Finish:
Mac recently launched their Magic of night collection which I'm sure all of you highlight freaks must know. Lucky I got my hands on both the shades.
Oh Darling: Metallic gold.
Shaft of Gold: Deep bronze.
It was a limited collection so, sold out everywhere. Both the shades retails for $33 each.
Sold out everywhere.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit palette:
I was second most excited for this palette. It includes six shades with one brand new shade called Iridescent Strobe Light, which is a soft pink. Rest of the shades are permanent. This palette retails for $80 and you get to try six shades which is not a bad deal in my opinion. But I wasn't satisfied with the quantity in each pan. Currently not available at sephora.

Becca x Jaclyn hill Champagne glow Palette: 
This palette is exclusive to Sephora and contains three limited Edition shades;
Pearl: (New) Pure white sheen
Champagne pop: Peachy champagne 
Blushed Copper: Warm copper with rosey undertones.
Pearl and Champagne pop will be their permanent shades 
Palette retails for $34 which is a steal:)

Tarte bling it on blush palette:
I am a huge collector of tarte blushes but buying them separately is not very pocket friendly. So i opted for this palette in addition to their tarte holidaze blush set;) Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blush formula is supposed to last for twelve hours.
This decent to good palette retails for $44. And contains five blushes of which three are new.
Fetching: Rose- New
Smashing: Coral pink- New
Beaming: Apricot pink- New
Dollface: Cool pink 
Prim: Plum nude

Tarte At first HOLIDAZE Amazonian clay blush set:
I knew i had to buy this because of their portability plus it tarte:D This set comes with four limited edition shades. 
Ectatic: Nude melon
Epic: Poppy pink
Embellish: Plum rose 
Entertain: Rosy pink.
This set is for $35 but the retail value is $60.

Becca Afterglow cheek Palette:
This palette contains five pans, three of the Becca 's famous highlighters and two of their blushes from their permanent line. 
This is a great way to try out their cheek products. 
Rose gold
Wild honey
Retail value of the palette is $39.50.

Too faced Melted kisses and Sweet cheeks:
Too faced always nails it down with their packaging. But not only their packaging their pigmentation is always on point.
This set from too faced features three of their deluxe melted lipsticks and three co-ordinating deluxe love flush blush.
All three pairs are individually packed in one cute package. Give as one present or spread the love. 
Deluxe melted nude and love hangover.
Deluxe melted peony and justify mu love. 
Deluxe melted fig and your love is king. 
You can buy this set for $36 at

Becca glow on the go set:
This set features Beccas famous shimmering skin perfector and shimmering skin perfector in pressed opal. Both deluxe sizes. If you haven't tried opal by Becca. You must give this set a go. 
It retails for $20. Which doesn't hurt your pocket much.

Ladies this is all for now, kindly do let me know in the comment section about which detailed post you are looking forward the most.
Take care.

BH Cosmetics 6 Color Palette Contour & Blush

Contouring which was once makeup artist’s secret, is the most famous makeup vogue in the recent years. Almost every brand on spectrum is launching their Contour palette, to help carve the face through makeup, including the brand which is known for its wide range of eye shadows, brushes and economical products. BH Cosmetics is an online brand which ships worldwide and in recent years they’ve broadened their selection and are keeping themselves up to date with every new world’s makeup trend. BH cosmetics have two 6 pans Contour & Blush palettes that works for many skin tones. All of the colors are matte with no metallic shine, or shimmer. The palette I will be reviewing today is number 1 of their collection which has some great highlighting shades, a dark contour color and two dark pink-toned blushes with a highlighter also. Palette 2 has darker shades with salmon blushes and is not suitable for Asian skin tones. 

Product Description

Product has been described on BH Cosmetics site as:

Get the must-have palette in every makeup artist’s kit. This easy to use face palette works for every skin tone. Six universally versatile matte shades in both warm and cool tones that can be used to contour, highlight, set and blush with a pop of colour.

Features & Benefits

  • ·         Easy to use.
  • ·         Clinically Tested.
  • ·         Non-irritating.
  • ·         Allergy Tested.
The product comes in a black matte card cover and the palette is also made of black matte plastic, which isn’t flimsy or gives cheap feeling. The size of palette is nice to keep inside a drawer but definitely something which you can carry in bag. On the back you’ll find all of the information that is normally on the box or website including the description of the product, ingredients and directions for use which can be handy if you are using palette for the first time. The amount of product you get in these pans in tremendous, each pan is about two inches across.

My Thoughts

For starters, in this value, the palette is quite decent. The pigmentation is intense, especially when it comes to the blush and contour colours. The powders are a bit powdery, I dab my brush lightly on the pan to pick up the colour, because the colours are really pigmented and you may want to tap off the excess from the brush before applying to the face. The blush shade on the bottom right is my choice most of the time when I use this palette. I use the white highlighter powder under my eyes, it really gives the awakening effect to the eyes. The skin powder on the top row can be used as compact powder and I use the one on the bottom left to dab on my face when I feel a little pale after applying foundation. And it stays for 7-8 hours on my skin in summers and doesn’t rub off if I accidently touch my face. I often get asked by friends and colleagues that what blush you are using, why it hasn’t disappeared yet after so many hours.

Bottom Row

However, I will recommend these palettes to the people with medium to dark skin tones because of the depth of the colours and the pigmentation. For someone like me who has a light to medium tone, this works as long as I keep light hand. This is an ideal starter for the new comers in the contouring and highlighting world of makeup.


  • ·         Not so pricey
  • ·         Can be obtained online, as BH cosmetic ships worldwide.
  • ·         Matte shades with no fall out on the pan.
  • ·         Stays for 7-8 hours.

  • ·         A little intense, you need to be cautious about the amount on the brush before applying
  • ·         Contour and Blush colours could be a little lighter.
  • ·         The palette is thin but large so doesn’t make it travel friendly.

Availability and Price:

BH cosmetics ships worldwide and this can also be purchased through different face book pages.
It cost $19
P.S: Keep a check on BH’s sale deals, as they come often ;)
