Forgive Me But Tom Ford Made Me a Savage!

Ain't nothing better than a blush that works as a bronzer and blush in one. I just couldn't resist the loveliness of the texture and shade of Tom Ford Blushes so I went ahead to check out what other shades they have to offer.. And this baby came home with me..  


- A very unique bronzy shade with a slight red and peachy undertones as well as very fine rosy shimmers that give a beautifully subtle sheen
- Not as dark as it looks in the pan so don't be scared
- Very pigmented so you need a little bit 
- Blends well on the cheeks
- Good staying power

Who Will Like This?

- Anyone who is looking for a blush that works as bronzer and blush in one
- Anyone is wants that bronzy summery look without looking muddy
- People with medium to dark skin tones.. This will look amazing on them

Who Won't Like This?

- People who have a naturally pinkish skin tone as this can make you look redder because of the reddish undertones and the rosy shimmers

My Final Thoughts: Despite the dark scary colour in the pan, this shade looks surprisingly natural on the skin.. I love the effortless glow it gives.. And as you can see from the comparisons above, I haven't found anything like it.. It's truly one of a kind..

Review: Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Foundation SPF25

My skin goes through phases.. Dry or very dry.. So finding the right kind of foundation can be a challenge as many foundations cling on to dry patches or accentuate certain problem areas..

So when Bobbi Brown came out with moisturizing foundation that provides good coverage, I just had to get my hands on it..

- Easy to blend
- Medium Coverage
- Not the most light-weight foundation.. You can feel that you're wearing something on your face
- Good shade selection
- Must be powdered even if lightly to ensure longevity 
- Dewy finish
- Provides great hydration
- Contains sun protection, Shea Butter and Evening Primrose. It also claims to help replenish & strengthen skin over time

Application Method

I prefer using my finger tips to blend it into my skin, just like the way I would apply my moisturizer

Who Will Like This?
- People with dry skin, this is an amazing foundation!
- Anyone who is on the go and isn't too religious about moisturizing their face before foundation, this foundation is 3 in 1.. A moisturizer + a foundation + Sunscreen
- Anyone who cares enough to have ingredients that feed their skin in their foundation

Who Won't Like This?
- Anyone who has oily skin or T-zone as it will feel too greasy on their skin
- Anyone who prefers a matte or satin finish

My Final Thoughts: I really like the way this foundation feels on my skin and how easy it is to apply.. The key is to use a tiny bit at a time as to not pack the product on which can result in it feeling too heavy on the skin.. I especially love the dewy finish it gives my skin.. Makes it look healthy and glowy in a good way..

Review: Burberry Sheer Luminous Compact Foundation

With my dry skin, I don't usually reach out for powder that much.. But when I swatched this at the Burberry counter, I just had to have it.. And here's why..


- Amazingly smooth texture
- Gives a beautiful velvety finish
- Doesn't dry up your skin
- Does not control oil
- Longevity I would say is average.. Not so bad.. Depends on how hot your weather is
- Light to Medium coverage


- Although this foundation comes with a sponge, I never really use it unless I want to touch up during the day.. But I love applying this with Sephora Mineral Powder Brush #45.. It buffs the powder in sooo nicely

Who Will Like This?

- Anyone who is looking for a powder that won't dry up their skin
- Anyone who wants a powder to set their makeup without messing with the foundation's finish much
- Anyone who likes their powder to give that little bit of extra coverage

Who Won't Like This?

- People with oily skin as this does not control oil

My Final Thoughts: I love this powder.. On days I don't feel like wearing foundation, I apply concealer and then buff this powder on top for a velvety flawless finish.. At first it looks matte but after a few minutes when it blends in and gives a lovely glow to my skin.. Amazing amazing powder..

What's your favourite powder?
