Since I started my new web design business, I have been trying to conserve my funds by buying less makeup. Because of that, I have been thinking about new things I can write about, outside of product reviews. Cue the Celebrity Spotlight! Twice a month, or possibly more often, I’ll be featuring a celebrity and helping you recreate their look with product suggestions and beauty …Read more »
Ruby Woo is RiRi’s favorite MAC lipstick and I can totally see why.
After years of hearing about Ruby Woo, I finally decided it was time to see what all the fuss was about. I had originally stayed away from this lipstick due to its extremely drying, matte formula, but Rihanna was the one that finally sold me on it.

If you guys follow me on Instagram (@anishagiri), then you know that I’ve pretty much been sitting on this review for the past month. Horrible, right? I feel slightly guilty for not sharing this with you guys sooner seeing as how perfect it is for Spring!
This lipstick was actually my first purchase at The Makeup Show and coincidentally my absolute favorite!

I had the pleasure of meeting Mila Grass at The Makeup Show LA last month, where she had been a finalist for the Face Chart Contest. A couple nights later, after I’d added her to facebook, I was looking at her page and saw that she did eyelash extensions. I had been wanting to get mine done again for a while, so I figured I’d …Read more »
I've been feeling pretty inspired lately, it seems! Anisha's usually the one to do colorful and eccentric looks, but I've been playing around with my Buxom Stay-There and Sugarpill eyeshadows, which is always fun.Read more »
I meant to post this earlier in the day, but it’s been a little hectic over here. This year, sadly, I didn’t have a date for Valentine’s Day – unless you count my sister and nephew. But, that didn’t stop me from creating this Vday FOTD! I mostly used my new L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows, which I’ll review this weekend.

Happy Lunar New Year, everyone! I finally replaced my lost memory card for my camera, so I’m able to do FOTD’s again! I thought it would be appropriate to do an Emerald FOTD since it’s the Pantone color of the year.

No matter how many new eyeshadows I get, I still find myself gravitating towards my myface blingtones. So easily blendable, so perfectly sparkly. I'm definitely going to get more shades. I was somewhat inspired by Anisha's latest FOTD: Kiss Don't Tell, so I kind of wanted to do a smokey look too.Read more »
This look was inspired by MAC’s Guilty Passions Cremesheen lip glass, Kiss Don’t Tell. Chrissy was nice enough to pass it on to me when she was here visiting and it resulted in love upon first swatch. If ever there were a perfect nude lip gloss for WOC, this is it. It’s amazingly pigmented and the most perfect accompaniment to my favorite nude lipstick of …Read more »
So, for my 26th birthday, I treated myself with a trip to Vegas, but at the last second I decided to extend my vacation and fly to San Francisco from Vegas to visit Anisha! I was so sick with a cold once I got there, but thankfully she keeps a small pharmacy in her apartment. Once I was feeling better I met up with Anisha at work and we went makeup shopping! I knew I definitely wanted to make a trip to INGLOT because I've never seen them outside of trade-shows like IMATS. The only place I know they have a counter is in the Macy's in San Francisco. I was able to purchase a five piece freedom system eyeshadow palette and a small angled brush for just $56! When we got back from the city, we started playing with our makeup. Anisha tried to film a tutorial for you all, but sadly her camera ran out of memory right in the middle of filming. Tragic! She ended up turning it into an FOTD which I hope she'll share with us sometime next week. I chose to create an FOTD with all the Inglot eyeshadows I bought.Read more »
