November Favourites : Beauty and Random

 November just fleeted by and I am ever so excited that December is just few days away!! This means Christmas time :)))) *woot woot*.... At the same time this also means that i  need to be more engrossed in writing my dissertation :(((. Anyways listed below are some of my favourite beauty and random things that i absolutely tripped on this November.


Maybelline Diamond Glow by Eye Studio in 01 Copper Brown

 I totally dig this palette and as u can see i use all the shades in it. It is awesome to do metallic smokey eyes, just perfect for fall/winter.

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in 60 OR Obsessed Orange 

A very bright orange shade which helps to brighten the dull approaching winter. I love this lipstick and can't get enough of it.

The Body Shop Lily Cole Collection Lip and Cheek Dome in 20 Pinch me Pink

This is by far one of the cutest TBS product i own. I barely use this on my lips but i love using this on my cheek to make a perfect winter flushed pink cheeks.

Victoria's Secret Wild at Heart Sheer Fragrance Mist

Looking at the bottle u all can see how much i have used up already. It is made up of sensual Vanilla and musk. I am a sucker for anything vanilla :P

Loreal Paris Youth Code

I am 26 years old and finally decided to buy some anti-aging products. After giving it much thoughts i settled for Youth Code. I got face serum, day cream, night cream and eye cream. I have been using this for about a month now and it suits be well. I can already see the changes in my complexion. I guess i will stick on to this brand. :)


Ballet Shoes from MAX

I practically wore this shoes the whole month with any outfit!! I got this at MAX and it's really cheap. The sole is kind of thin but it is one of the most comfortable pair of shoes i own. The colour, navy blue is so winter and i love the stud detailing at the back of the shoe.

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

I searched high and low for this book in Starmark but couldn't find it, when i asked the SA he just looked at me weirdly when i mentioned the name of the book. In the end i ordered it from good old FLIPKART. The book is awesome and deals with coming of age and growing up. Now i am dying to see the movie. It's a must read and I bet everyone will enjoy it as much as i did.

Iris Orange Candle

With Diwali, all the retailers had their best candles in display. I picked this up in Spencers. I wanted to give scented candles a try. Surprisingly this orange one has a very nice smell and it does make my whole room smell fresh. How i wish Bath and Body Works opens up in India :( i want all the lovely candles they have :((

Hamsa with Evil Eye chain from Accessorize

This piece is not only my November favourite but my all time favourite. I hardly step out of the house without this around my neck.

Shrimp Chilly Pickle from local market at hometown ( Kalimpong )

I just can't get enough of this pickle. Yummy, crispy, spicy and hot. I love it especially with any instant noodles.

That's it for all my favourite November products, would love to hear what are your favourites, do comment below and hope you guys had a lovely month.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter : Peach Parfait

Hello, beautiful people... Today I am going to write about one of my favorite lip product, the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in the shade Peach Parfait. How i wanted this baby ever since i saw so many reviews in Youtube and i was the happiest when it launched recently here in India. After ogling at the different shades for almost half an hour i gave in to the shade Peach Parfait :)

 The packaging is so pretty. It looks kinda like the Revlon Colorbust lipstick, the only difference being the outer covering of the lip butter comes in different colors matching with the shade of the lip butter. Peach Parfait has a lovely peachy colored cover.

Peach Parfait has a beautiful peach tint with small golden sparkles. It glides so smoothly on the lips and it really conditions the lips well. The company claims that the lip butter is made up of shea, mango and coconut butter formula. This must be reason as to why it hydrates the lips well. The color stayed on my lips for the whole time i went out with my mom. But after a meal i had to re-apply it again.

The price is Rs 600. I personally feel that its little pricey but nonetheless it is worth the product.

The swatch below shows how beautiful and moist the lip butter is.

.... and this is how it looks in my lips

I really like this product and its perfect for fall and winter when some lipsticks tend to make lips chapped especially sensitive lips like mine. I usually wear matte lipsticks and this lip butter is one of the first glossy lippie that i adore. It comes in i think  twenty different gorgeous shades but the make up counter from where i bought mine just had about seven different shades. The only thing i don't like is the total length of the product which i feel is tad too small for the exorbitant price. Overall it's a great product and i am looking forward to buy some more in different shades.

                                                        xoxo... lee :)

November Vellvette Box

Hey beautiful people, i know i have lately become MIA.. blame it on my bad internet connection. Anyways, now that i have got a new connection, i hope to be present more frequently in the blog world. I am back in the city from a long vacation at home and when i was at home, my September and October Vellvette Box was delivered and i had my boyfriend pick it up for me. I was so excited i had him open the box for me and send me pictures through watsapp lol. Well...errrr.. i am feeling too lazy to write a review on those boxes but hold your breath folks... i have with me the NOVEMBER VELLVETTE BOX..  i received it today just few hours back and i can't wait to show you guys what i got.


The box as usual came in this sturdy black box with a pink ribbon tied across it. (The bow in this pic looks crappy because it is my fruitless attempt to retie it after i ripped it apart with excitement.) Oh! how i love these boxes to use it as storage. The theme for this months box is Festivities.

Now, the picture of the products i got:

This time i got three products, two deluxe sized samples and one full size product.

The first thing i got is this 10 ml  Clarins Paris UV PLUSHP Ecran Multi-Protection with SPF 40.

The description card states that this is a 'non-greasy' and 'light' sunscreen perfect for the Indian weather. The full size of this product costs Rs 2,200 for 30 ml.

The second product i got is 10 ml of Caudalie Paris Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet.

Now a kind of mistake happened in my box, i guess this is only in my box or i don't know. The description card shows that i got a shampoo from the same brand but in actual i received this lotion. Maybe it was a mistake. Anyways, judging from what i read from the back of this container, i guess this is a sort of moisturizer which can be used after using your face serum. I don't know the cost of this full size lotion because like i told you guys i got the wrong description card.

Now the third product i got is my favorite from this box. It is a full sized Nyx Ultra Pearl Mania Eyeshadow and i got mine in Yellow Gold!

Look how pretty and cute is that! The Description card states that these are "shimmering" loose shadow powder and can be used not only one eyes but cheeks and lips as well. How cool is that! oh! how i loved this and it is highly pigmented as well. The full size costs Rs 300 for 5ml.

Lastly i got these discount coupons and description cards in the box.

Well, as usual i loved my November Vellvette box and with this month my three months subscription has come to an end :((((( but i will renew it asap muhahahaha *evil laugh*

Before i go here is the picture collage i had instagrammed of my September and October Vellvette box.

Hope you guys loved reading this. Loads of hauls and reviews coming soon. Do follow me in GFC if you haven't and also in Instagram @pinkcesslee . muahhhxx
