The Lust List: Royal Blues & Metallic Hues

by Mehak Shahani on October 31, 2012

in Features, Lust list

While Next week’s lust list is going to be very India -festive focussed, this week we have a bit of royal blue in clutches and nail polishes, and a bit of metallic gorgeousness in makeup an clothes!!!  I have hardly got time to be lusting over things these days, but a little stroll through pinterest always makes me drool a tiny bit more !!!! November 2nd is my first karva-chauth an apparently thats QUITE a big deal. Can you believe i have to wear my wedding lehenga again? I think ill just look silly, in my lehenga while everyone else is regularly dressed. But im not complaining, any chance to wear that thin i shall wear it ! Plus this time it might be more fun since i dont have to cover my head and stuff!

1.Matte Royal Blue Nail Polish : I was always a glitter nail polish girl, but maybe its the age, these ultra chic siphisticated mattes are calling out my name. I think this articular one is a matte blue by Zoya but i just adore the finish- gorgeous !!!


2.Mac Tenderly Warm Crushed Metallic Pigment Sets : Just the name had be drooling- tenderly warm ! Yes please !! I want some tenderly warmness on my eyes. A little bit of a nice coffee, a little autumn gold leaf, a little tarnished copper and a little velvety cream !! Mmmm yum! Part of MAC’s Guilty Pleasures collection which will be launched in 2085 in India Probably . Kidding. More like 2063. Okay, Kidding. more like next year

3. Sequinned top with a dip back: Need a little bit of shimmer with the festive season right: I like how even though this top is loaded with glitter, it still ends up looking so classy- with the muted coffee colored pants!
4.Royal Blue Clutch by LovetoBag: Two of the most genius clutch makers in india today are ‘Lovetobag’ and “Bansri’ . Both of have such gorgeous, clutch bags, they really make me want to buy clothes  just to match with the clutches. Gorgeous!! You can find both these designers at

5.Kundan Choker: One of the things about my jewellery collection is i dont have anything that i can wear to like a friends wedding. Everything is either a wedding set or an engagement set or a karva chauth gifted set (so excited about wearin that one). So i need some nice, wearable pieces like this one which are close to the neck- i thought this was perfect !!!!

Ah! I’m nuts about royal blue too! And I’m looking for a royal blue or bright deep blue eyeliner. Any to recommend? I think Chaos on Urban Decay Vice Palette comes close but still looking for an even better one!

Hi Mehak,
What would you think is the price range for a Kundan choker like that? Im still searching for that beutiful Zoya matte velvet nail polish u posted in the last lust list,just wish i knew which collection it was from.


Shikha October 31, 2012 at 2:35 pm

San, A choker set weighing 120gm will cost around 3-4 Lakh, It depends on no of strings, weight of set(gold) and design. A decent kundan set will weight around 80gm.


Shikha October 31, 2012 at 2:36 pm

opps, Mehak please excuse for answering this


mehak October 31, 2012 at 2:54 pm

I kind of want the new MAC pigment sets, even though I’m sick of MAC. I’m weird, aren’t I? :P

Sequined tops are so pretty! I have to go shopping and find one for myself.
