I'm a 23 years professional who works in Delhi. I'm not in the beauty industry, I'm not a make-up artist, I'm just passionately interested in all things cosmetic and beauty-related. It’s just my love of cosmetics that started at a very young age.

I tend to like the smaller, less well-known brands. As it can be very difficult to find consumer reviews (and sometimes any reviews at all) of these lines, I started my blog as a way to provide information and swatches for similar lovers of the beauty esoteric. I buy a lot of beauty stuff, which is where the majority of my posts come from; stuff I've bought and like, don't like, or things I'm interested in.
