Unboxing Sephora Box


Hello My beautiful friends,

If you follow me on Instagram, I have posted a sneak peek of stuff that I recently bought from Sephora. This blog is just about unboxing (aka first impression) of these products for you guys. I will probably do a full review of these products individually later when I know how good or bad these products are.

Clarins HydraQuench Intensive Serum


People are just raving about this product. This is a serum for dry and dehydrated skin. I have used it a couple of times and I just love it

Kat Van D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick 


Yes I bought my first Kat Van D lipstick in the shade ‘Double Dare’. This is just a phenomenal color and I am obsessed with it. I will be doing a full review of this very soon

Naked Palette 2 Basic 


I don’t have to say much about this product. I wanted a travel friendly palette for myself, so I bought this. Let me know in the comment below if you want me to do a ‘What’s in my travel make up bag’ ? And finally the free samples that I got from Sephora

Nailed! My current faves

Hello Beautiful,

Summer is finally here in Seattle! Its beautiful out here and loving the current weather. I am currently loving these three nail paint which I bought few days back. I think I haven’t done any nail polish review, so cheers to this start

Sinfulcolors Professional



 The nail color that I bought is from Kylie Jenner Trend Matters “velvet” collection from SinfulColors.I bought two colors from Walgreens at $3, pretty awesome deal. To be honest I was not expecting much from this brand and I am pleasantly surprised that it was just amazing. I got the shade ‘Karma’ and ‘Kommotion’. These two are such gorgeous color and they look pretty amazing. The variety was amazing and they had soooo many beautiful colors for such an amazing price.



The colors and the quality is amazing. The dry out pretty easily and last for good no of days. I usually chip my nail colors quite easily but this stayed long. I think it depends from shades to shades. These two shades which I bought were pretty awesome. They are not completely matte finish but has a slight sheen to it. Overall very happy with both the shades



This is my current favorite color and I am so happy that I finally bought it. It looks so lovely on my short nails that I am completely obsessed with it. This is in the shades ‘Muchi Muchi’. Its a beautiful baby pink shades. To get this shade you have to apply at least 3 coats which is an issue. Overall super happy with my Pink! I got this from Target fro 9$

Thank you so much for reading this. Let me know your current faves!

Jo Malone London Review

I’m usually very sensitive to fragrances and have had the same perfumes on rotation for many years now. This one was gifted by my husband when he was in London. To be honest I have never heard of this brand but thanks to my husband, I do now!


I got the Peony & blush suede cologne . It smells like the spring time 🙂

About the perfume 

The essence of charm.  Peonies in voluptuous bloom, exquisitely fragile.  Flirtatious with the juicy bite of red apple and the opulence of jasmine, rose and gillyflower.  Mingling with the sensuality of soft, blush suede.  Luxurious and seductive.


Its a delicate and light fragrance which one can wear all day long. Its feminine ,classy and  very delightful. Peony & Blush Suede is a strong floral which will last long. However the fresh scent disappears quickly and leaves a generic heavy musky floral. It can be bit over powering if sprayed too much. The bottle is very classy, elegant and beautiful.

Some people told me that either you will love Jo Malone fragrances or hate. I would highly recommend this perfume if you like floral scent. The best part is I can still smell it on my clothes the following day.

Let me know if you have used any other fragrance of this brand?
