What is it with me and foundations, eh? I have *cough* three (albeit rather small) drawers *cough* of bases that really do cover all bases and yet still nothing beats the thrill of clicking checkout on yet another addition to the foundation family. Perhaps it’s cause I’m being a bit of a base floozy at the moment (the Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick still wears the crown but my ‘everyday base’ slot could do with some more options) or it could be to do with my makeup mantra that preaches if you’re sorted on the foundation front then who gives two hoots about the rest of it. Gurl, you’re gonna look good. So with a lighter coverage focus, there’s been three new additions to the drawers…

‘More skincare?’, I hear you collectively sigh. Yes more. As if I don’t have enough cleanser, toner, serum, moisturiser, eye cream, face mask, treatment options already. But you see there were 3 reasons that when summed led to me to say yes to the Richfeel Skin Whitening Facial Kit*.

A deep burgundy lipstick?! I know, are you sitting down? On paper, the Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Lipstick in Burgundy Business and a peachy lip lover like myself look like we wouldn’t get on. But you know what, I loove it. Matte, opaque and just the right tooth-whitening, lip popping flash of berry, I see this becoming quite the sunshine’s out shade for me. If this was sheer, I’m not sure I’d be as hot on it. But the fact that one quick swipe coats on just the right amount of a your lips but a burgundier hue and leaves them feeling nicely nourished, I’m in. It almost reminds me of the shade you get when you’ve a kala khatta gola – not too crazy. Mascara: required, the rest of your makeup: optional.

I picked mine up from a rather fruitful Health & Glow trip. At Rs.365 it’s the cheapest pick of the pack, and for berry summer lips, I’m sorted.

Okay hear me out; I know soap is not the most glamorous of products and that the traditional, humble bar of soap has been pushed out by it’s slightly sexier, liquid counterpart. If you can find room in your life or bathroom for a bar soap, please let it be the multi-purpose and outstanding – Kama Heal Revitalising Transparent Soap. A moisturising, deeply cleansing soap, that is the perfect accompaniment to any routine.

What started as a quick dash to pick up one product turned into a full-blown spree here’s what made into my basket on the aforementioned expedition. Oh yep, I’ve been hauling…

Health & Glow are just bringing it at the moment; housing a load of my favourites, a stellar pharmacy section and with the more recent addition of a smattering of premium haircare brands it’s my go-to place for when I’m in the mood for a hit of everything all rolled into one. But Health & Glow have just lifted the budget bar that little bit higher with Colorbar swooping onto the shelves. When I spotted a stand in the Phoenix Market City branch I spent a whole 20 minutes taking it all in and of course came away a product (or three) in my basket.
