MAC Prep + Prime

Ankita from Corallista got married in December 2013. I was getting married in February 2014. This was one product she included in her wedding makeup kit and so did I! As soon as I hit India, this and Ruby Woo Lipstick were the very first buys.

MAC Prep + Prime is a primer for lips. Is it worth the moolah? Here's my experience!

The Body Shop Blueberry Body Scrub-Gelee Review!

Perks of being a beauty blogger? Friends know what to gift you. Its a narrow window - Skincare or Makeup?
MAC 'All Fired Up' lipstick was a wedding present & so is this. A basket of TBS goodies from a dear friend Sofia (Thank you ). Isn't it cute? Such a good selection of products. I have wanted that Wild Rose hand cream since last century :p

What caught my attention was this blueberry body scrub. I'm crazy for anything with berries (Our blog name... duhh!) so this was a love at first sight.

The Body Shop Blueberry Scrub is dark purple gel with blueberry extracts in it. You have to have a whiff of it! So irresistible. No wonder it has a 'Do Not Eat' sign on it. TBS says each product from this range has extract of 500 blueberries. Yummm!

Diwali Outfit & Makeup!

Some of you expressed interest in seeing my Diwali look so here it is! Thank you for taking out the time to leave a line on the post. Comments keep me going!

So, I'm usually always rushing before any event. A forgotten Mascara or highlighter is quite a norm! But this Diwali thanks to friends who didn't bother to get dressed on time, I actually had a bit of time to click my makeup pics. Blessing in disguise!

As I say, I'm makeup novice so both praise and critique is well appreciated!

For dress up, I chose this dual toned blue outfit with silver stone and embroidery work on it. The dupatta/veil is pretty heavy so I got a very simple Kameej (fitted tunic) and Patiala Salwar (puffed pants) made when I went to India this year.

My fittings have changed drastically since then as I'm at the heaviest I've been all my life (Thank you random cooking phase) so I had to loosen up the tunic a night before. And so I was able to breathe in it!

The Week Gone By! 6

I missed my Friday post. Sorry :( You know Diwali n all. I focused all my energy on celebrating it, writing had to wait. Its the best month of the year I reckon. There's festivity & joy in the air. Though nothing like India but still so much fun.

Diwali is all about shopping and gifts. This year I gifted myself a makeup desk. Did you catch all the live action on our Facebook page when me and Sunshine were trying to assemble it? It was a mission. Took us a whole evening that thing. Anyways, it's ready now. There's still lots I want to do on it but for now this is how it looks- My Ikea Micke desk. I'd love to add more jars, pretty decor and some drawer organizing stuff from Daiso. It's a work in progress!

Thursday, 23 October 2014 Haul- 2

Hands up if you're an online shopping addict too? Its like a present to myself from myself. Last month I went a bit overboard with online shopping & the orders have finally started trickling in.

First up! Check out this haul. I've shopped from them before. They ship worldwide & stock irresistible products at shocking prices (especially for us in NZ). If not for the exorbitant shipping charges ($18 minimum), I'd be ordering from them every month. God bless StrawberryNet for free shipping. Amen! had a '40% off everything' promotion last month & 3 of us made a combined order. This is my tiny share of the load.

- 3 x NYX soft matte lip cream in 'Antwerp' ($6 USD, $3.60 on special) : This is my absolute fav lippy. I just can't survive without it. Hence ordered 3. Damn you flatmate for claiming one :(

- NYX Studio liquid liner in SLL101 'Extreme blue' ($4.50 USD, $2.70 on special): I've been obsessed with colored liners lately. Since Lime Crime Lazuli is so expensive, I've started looking for alternatives. Definitely reviewing this soon. Its super bright by the way, beats Lazuli too! Hoping stays that long as well.
