Haul Series Part 2 – Drugstore Makeup!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 10th November 2013

Hello Everyone!

So this is the part two of my Haul Series! I went to the mall with a few friends and somehow we ended up in a NewU store! That store is dangerous. Once you go inside, it is next to impossible to come out without purchasing something!

So guess what happened? Yes, a HAUL happened! 😛

Here is what I bought :

1. Lakme CC Cream – Rs. 250/-

Image

This was featured in my October Favorites! My skin has been making its own decisions lately. It has been acting oilier on some days and dry on the others! So on those almost dry days, I turn to this!

2. L’oreal Infallible Foundation – Rs. 1250/-

Image

I wanted a foundation with decent coverage that looked natural and would stand the test of time! This seemed perfect so I picked it up!

3. Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer – Rs. 475/-

Image

I was very confused between the Colorbar Full Coverage concealer or this one! I do not need to cover blemishes and acne spots since I make my skin behave so, I decided upon a highlighting concealer for my under eye area!

4. Faces Long Wear Eye Liner Pencil ( Metal Brown ) – Rs. 349/-

Image

I swear by this eye liner! Brown is less harsh than black. This must be my 4th or 5th repurchase. Enough said!

5. Nail Polishes :

Lakme 9 to 5 Long Wear Nail Color in Beige Suit – Rs. 200/- 

Image

This polish goes fully pigmented in one swipe. It is perfect for all the working ladies who do not have enough time to pamper themselves but still want to look put together. It is a beautiful peachy nude shade.

Maybelline Color Show Nail Color in 218 Crazy Berry – Rs. 75/-

Image

This is a beautiful berry shade that is perfect for the fall/winter time and will complement berry lips beautifully!

Maybelline Color Show Nail Color in 401 Constant Candy – Rs. 75/-

Image

During the fall/winter time, I usually gravitate towards dark nails or nude nails. This is one of those pale pink nude shades that look great with any outfit!

L’oreal Nail Polish in 409 – Rs. 225/-

Image

This is a deep wine, bordering on black. I love the pigmentation on these L’oreal nail polishes and the flat brush applicator is very user friendly!

6. Colorbar Emphaseyes Eye Blending Brush

Image Image

Because I wanted to try some of the Colorbar brushes…..

It is tapered on one side and flat on the other, unlike conventional blending brushes that are round and fluffy. It feels soft and easy to use. I am most likely going to use it for under eye concealing.

7. Freebie! Maybelline Manicure Kit.

Isnt it just so exciting when the store manager decides that you’ve burnt enough of your money to deserve a free gift? 😛

It looks like a sturdy, good quality manicure set that would be just perfect to travel with! 😀

This is it for my haul but lots more coming soon! So stay tuned.

Product Empties! :-D

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 6th September 2013

Hello everyone, today I’m going to share with you the products I have used up and also love and use religiously!

1. Sunsilk Keratinology Heat Protector Spray

21

This product protects my hair from heat damage and adds shine. It smells good too!

There aren’t many heat protectors available in the market in India otherwise I’d try some other brand too. Till then, I have a back up of this that I am currently using.

2. L’Oreal Professional Liss Ultime Hair Serum

23

I love this serum! It smells amazing. It makes my hair smooth and manageable. I have tried so many serums but none of them have impressed me as much as this one did. I will definitely repurchase!

3. The Body Shop Strawberry Body Puree

P1

I LOVE The Body Shop! I have the entire Strawberry Range. Read Review HERE.

This is one of my favorite lotions for summers. It feels water based and absorbs quickly into the skin and provides enough moisturization in the hot weather. I like to use the Strawberry Body Butter in winters.

4. Johnson’s Baby Powder

P2

Nothing much to say about this! I like to use it as a dry shampoo and it performs fairly well. I am presently using the “Blossoms” version of this.

5. Nivea Pearl and Beauty Deodorant

P3

This is my deodorant of choice. It smells like how pearls would smell if they had any smell! This is probably my 9th or 10th can. I already have a backup that I am using. It keeps me dry on hot days too and even if I do sweat I don’t stink. This is limited edition packaging.

6. The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser 

P4

I use this as a primer. It says it primes and mattifies. I already have a backup that I am using. I haven’t really seen a difference in my pore size but then I do not have extremely large pores. It feels cooling and keep me matte for longer than if I wasn’t wearing it.

7. Maybelline Clear Glow Compact

P5

Okay so this isn’t exactly empty but it shattered. I will still use it because it is one of the best drugstore compacts you can find that is so inexpensive! Its not extremely mattyfing like powder matte but it looks natural like you have a natural glow. I am already using a backup.

8. Lacto Calamine Lotion Oil Control

P7

This is the moisturizer that I use at night everyday. I have been using it for 4-5 years. It is not great at controlling oil but it is amazing at fading marks and preventing pimples. That is why I use it at night. I use the L’Oreal Anti Shine Icy Gel during the day, which is empty too by the way but I threw away the tub and forgot about featuring it in this post! 😦

9. L’Occitane Cerisier Princesse Solid Perfume

P6

This is my favorite scent of all time! You have to go to a L’Occitane store and smell it! It is very feminine and girly! A perfect mixture of floral-fruity. The solid perfume doesn’t stay for a long time but I love the scent so much that I am thinking of getting the Eau De Toilette of this!

I hope you enjoyed reading about my empties and little reviews!
