Revlon Timeless Nail Polish

Another great nail polish to kick off the year. 2 coats to opaque. Using OPI Natural Nail Strengthener as base and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. 
Nail color is always a personal choice and I love this color. It matches all the cool toned, light colored sweaters I wear in the winter and doesn't shout in a work out :P. Pretty timeless as the name suggested.

Any nail favs of yours that you wear all the time?

Review | Rimmel Lasting Finish 018 Pink Sorbet Blendable Powder Blush

Decided to dedicate my first post of 2013 to my favorite blush / blusher EVER (Yes, and that even includes other high end blushes). I had a brief review in a monthly favorite posts long time ago HERE, but never really gave this well-loved product its own post. So here it is -

Retailed at under $4, Pink Sorbet is a light baby pink with a pearlescent sheen that lasts for hours. The formula is leaning towards the dry side. It is so easy to apply and is never too pigmented, meaning you can messily put it on and it will look good *fingers crossed. It appears more beige/peach on the skin rather than pink. I love it for everyday wear and cannot believe its at such a low price!

Planning on buying the entire range. Definitely worth a try if you are looking for something like this!

Hope you're all having a wonderful new year so far :))

Makeup & Skincare favorites of 2012!

Despite almost having no time due to overseas relocation and bloodily turned 25  in 2012, I started investing a lot in what I use on my face, especially skincare. 

The list below represents the best I have used in terms of makeup and skincare throughout the year after a LONG mental battle. As you can imagine, I do not limit my products into just drugstore or high end. As long as they work great with my normal-dry mildly combination skin and complexion, I continue to use them.

Without further ado, here goes my winners for makeup & skincare products for 2012!
