Big Sephora Haul! :-D

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Tuesday, 11th March 2014

Hello everyone!

Image

In my previous post, I showed you all what I got from MAC and Inglot. This post is going to be all about my Sephora Haul!

1. NYX Lip Liner Pencil in “Natural” – Rs 310/- & Nyx Retractable Lip Pencil in “Nude Pink”- Rs. 400/-

Image

I wanted some neutral lip liners. The retractable one is a gorgeous color for everyday and will go with most of my nudes! I prefer my nude lip colors to be slightly pinky toned since concealer nudes wash me out!

2. NYX Matte Finish & Dewy Finish Setting Sprays – Rs. 710/- each

Image

Both of these do an absolutely brilliant job of holding your makeup in place. I especially love the dewy one, it makes the skin look super glowy and healthy. The matte one will be good for extremely hot months like May and June.

3. Sephora Professional Mineral Powder Brush – Rs. 1400/-

Image

Recently, this has been my go to brush for foundation. It is soft and blends foundation like a dream. Any foundation refuses to look cakey when I use this brush. My clients love it too! I have washed it about 4 times and there was absolutely no shedding!

4. Sephora Professional Eye Liner Brush – Rs. 840/-

Image

Angled brushes make eyeliner application much easier. This has a very fine tip which enables you to create thin liner looks as well as thick. Sephora Professional brushes have highly impressed me!

5. Clinique Even Better Concealer in “Orange Brightener”  – Rs. 1600/-

Image

I wanted a brightener that would take care of under eye darkness. This does a great job of hiding any blueness or purple shadows under the eyes caused by veins and doubles the performance of your regular under eye concealer!

6. Sephora 8HR Wear Mattifying Compact Foundation in “Deep” – Rs. 1190/-

Image

I wanted a sculpting powder that I could contour with. This was the best I could find that wasn’t overly orange. This has a slight grey undertone that makes it perfect for sculpting. This is their powder foundation in the darkest shade.

7. Benefit Go Tropi-Coral Lip and Cheek Kit – Rs. 2090/-

Image

Image

I wanted to try out some cult favorite benefit products and these palettes seem like a much better option. Especially since blushes and highlighters take forever to finish. I LOVE the Cha Cha Tint and High Beam. I am not a big fan of lip glosses so the Coralista Lip Gloss was a blah product for me.

8. Benefit How To Look The Best At Everything Kit in “Light”- Rs. 2320/-

Image

Image

This is the perfect base makeup set. The primer is amazing, the foundation looks gorgeous, the concealers cover everything and the powder is great too! This is a win win palette if you want to try out some benefit base makeup products.

This is it for my Sephora Haul. I hope you enjoyed reading!

What’s In My November 2013 Vellvette Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 1st December 2013

Hello everyone!

My Vellvette bag usually arrives around the 26th. It came on the 30th this time!

Image

But this time, it was worth the wait! 😀

The bag is adorable! Its black and pink! These bags are so useful for travelling.

Image

The theme this month was Band Baaja Beauty due to the blooming wedding season!

Image

Here is what I got :

1. Votre Pore Shrink Toner

Image

I have oily skin so this product might be good. I am excited to try it. I must admit I get very lazy with toners but shrunken pores will be a lucrative result! :-P. Plus, it is a very generous size sample so I will be able to tell if I like it enough to purchase the full size.

 2. MUA Power Pout Color Intense Lip Tint And Balm – Irreplaceable

Image

Lip crayons are so popular right now! They’re really comfortable to wear and I am so happy with the color I got!

I didn’t get a card for this product.

Image

MUA is a UK based brand. So, it is really nice that we get to try these international brands through Vellvette.

I am sure it is cheaper in the UK but the MRP on this is Rs. 1050/- so you immediately recuperate the amount that you pay for the bag! 🙂

3. Clinique Even Better Foundation – 05 Neutral ( MF )

Image

I have heard so many good things about this foundation. I am so glad Vellvette sent me something from a relatively high end brand this time.

I am excited to try this foundation especially now that my skin is drier in winters. They didn’t just send one tiny sachet, there are 4! That is a very good sample size for a foundation considering each sachet will last me about 2 uses.

Image

Another wonderful thing is that Vellvette matched the foundation to my skin tone PERFECTLY. It is not a tinge darker or lighter! I am highly impressed!

4. Anna Andre Extreme Elegance Matte Foundation – 30000

Image

I had ordered this foundation off their website and received it separately. I am very glad I did because I loved it when I used it. It is a very natural looking foundation and has a beautiful semi matte finish! 😀

5. Mary Kay Pencils

Image

These are extremely tiny and single use samples.

Image

Top To Bottom :

Eyeliner in Black / Noir

Eyeliner in Steely / Metallise

Lip Liner in Soft Blush / Rose Doux

Even though they’re little single use samples, I can tell that they’re budge proof! I rubbed and rubbed my hand and these didn’t move. It makes me want to purchase the full size because it is very hard to find budge proof eye and lip liners.

I am so happy with this month’s Vellvette bag! They probably read my complaints in the previous post! 😛

Also, I am mega glad that I got more makeup products this month! Well done Vellvette!

Here is what I got overall :

I hope you enjoyed reading.
