This month's haul was not at all planned and it just happened is what I would say. It is like when you go shopping for diapers you see the face pack at H&G and you think just Rs.60, never mind and add it to your shopping cart. That is how it all happened, so I am glad :) Here are the things I bought and got this month :)

I hardly use any serums for my hair as I feel they make my hair look so thin and lifeless. Whenever I use some new shampoo my hair behaves so badly and the frizzy hair shows up. So during those days I badly need a serum and I got this Schwarzkopf Osis Magic Gloss Anti-Frizz Serum for Light Control.

My sister usually gets me awesome makeup stuffs and this one is not an exception. I have seen the Pink Ribbon Collection which has a pretty Estee Lauder Pure Color Long Lasting lipstick along with a Pink Accessory Bag. I really can't say which one I love more - the lipstick or the bag !! I already have reviewed the EL Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Pink Parfait HERE.

I think many of you had requested a review of the L'Oreal Lip Gloss that came with the Radiance Beauty Edition Kit. I started using it immediately so that I can give a proper review of the same. The shade 507 - Fresh Grenadine is a pretty coral shade that is very similar to the Nail Enamel I had reviewed HERE.

Being a lip gloss person [at least until few months back] I always wanted to own a lip gloss from MAC. Though I had too many options to choose from my first lip gloss from MAC was from my sister who gifted me the MAC Tartan Tale - My Scottish Fling kit. You can see the entire contents of the kit HERE.

As you all know I got this L'Oreal kit from my sister and that had a pretty coral color nail enamel. I couldn't wait to try it and once I did, I fell in love with it. This nail color actually came free with rest of the products in the kit !!

We might all be dressed up fresh and bright but sometimes perspiration leads to wet patches at the arm pits which will ruin everything. It is never a pleasant sight for anyone. So I have always had an anti-pespirant in my vanity and I carry one along wherever I go. Today I thought of reviewing the Sure Men Anti Perspirant that claims upto 48 hrs protection against sweat and work at as high temperature as 58 degree Celsius.

This seems to be the season of eye liners for me and I am happy with all the eye liners I bought recently. The elf ones are the new additions and I couldn't wait to try them. After using so many pencil liners I feel using pencil liners are easier than using the liquid eyeliners !

Curios to know the results?? Let me not make you wait anymore..

Sister did a short visit to India and thus a small
haul bag of gifts for me. The trip was planned at the last minute for Neya's birthday so she couldn't buy much but still I am enjoying each and every single product she gave me. Gifts are always special be it small or big :D
Sunday, November 27, 2011
I have read great reviews about the Revlon color burst lipstick and was waiting for a chance to try one. In the month of May during my haul at Dubai I managed to pick the shade Raspberry for myself. Revlon counter at the airport didn't have great stock so this was the only shade that I liked on me. Now I wish I had a chance to try more shades.
Thursday, November 24, 2011
Estee Lauder is a brand I trust a lot and I just randomly pick stuffs from them every time. I should say I have never been disappointed with any of their products. I wanted to try their Pure Color lipsticks and that it when I chose two lipsticks and my sister got them for me. Today I will be reviewing the shade Pink Parfait.
Monday, November 21, 2011
I really don't like to review a product which is a gift for me [except if it is from my sis-as she doesn't mind] and this one is not an exception. After giving a second thought I felt this deserves a review as it is a travel friendly product which would come handy for most working women and last minute makeup hands like me :D
Friday, November 18, 2011
I have been drooling over this lipstick ever since I saw the ad in magazines, especially the shade worn by Sonam Kapoor :D Though I tried many shades the price made me stay away from these lippies. I spotted this on offer and I couldn't resist and thus I got one for myself :)
Tuesday, November 15, 2011
When I was a novice in make up I picked up so many stuffs that is sleeping in my vanity case comfortably and one such product is this Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush. Well, I saw good reviews about this blush so just blindly picked this without even trying the shade on me :P
Saturday, November 12, 2011
Neya's birthday was a blast and end of it we all fell sick !! It took time for me to recover [Neya is still recovering :(] Well all this story is here to say 'Thanks' for hanging on to this space :)
Coming to the post now I wanted to do an elaborate review on these pencils before which I thought I will post the swatches as I had promised.

Wish you all had a very happy Diwali [I know it is coming very late :P Sorry]
As few of you know that Neya's [my daughter] 1st birthday is coming up this November 10th and I am organizing her birthday party all alone. [Hubby got stuck with official work !] I hardly get time to sit with my laptop and finding it hard to post anything here. Have to roam around a lot, co-ordinate with many people.. and I am tired already !! I feel whatever I post here should be done with full involvement and nothing should be done in a hurry. So kindly excuse me for few more days that I won't be posting articles frequently.
Will be back to blogging soon. Do hang on till then :)

I think it is Avon Simply Pretty season here. Actually I didn't plan to do anything like that but it just happened and that follows another review of a Simply Pretty product by Avon- Lipsticks :) From the time I actually started trying out lipsticks I am glad that all lipsticks I got were really good and these were one among them.
Saturday, October 15, 2011
I know I promised a giveaway long back and it took a lot of time for me to actually go out and get the products for the giveaway. P.S - I have a naughty little child ;) So when I had to go out to the mall for Diwali shopping I decided to buy stuffs for the giveaway :D Yes... and now I will be posting about the giveaway anytime soon :)
I was very confused on what to buy. I prepared a small list and headed to the mall.. To my shock most of the products were out of stock.. I don't want to tell 'now' what they were.. It might break the suspense :D So at last bought few products that I love. Hope you will love them too.
Neya's 1st B'day is coming up and I am busy with that too. So sorry for all the delay and trouble :(
Look out for the giveaway post :)

I always like to have a light alternative to my foundations as Chennai's weather is too hot at times and I don't feel comfortable wearing foundations. When I was on hunt for such a product the SA at Maybelline counter recommended me to try their UV base.
Here is the review requested by Rekha and for all you girls there :)

As you all know very recently I have started trying new lip products.. well I mean being a complete lip gloss person I have started trying out many lipsticks [mostly creamy], lip cream and lip tint. I really enjoy this process and thought of sharing the same with you :) Like my first lip cream this is my first lip tint and again it is from Bourjois - a brand I trust a lot.

I had a little free time and was wondering what to review. Then I started digging few of the products that I have been using for some time but haven't reviewed. Also this reminded me to check the requests placed for reviews. So here is a peek-a-boo of all the products that I will be reviewing pretty soon.
Monday, September 5, 2011
During my purchase from Avon I managed to get almost 5-6 nail colors and I must say each and every single nail color is uniquethat every single color is my favorite too. Other than the neons and mattes I got even the Simply Pretty Nail Enamels that was priced at Rs.109 for 3 !!! I never wanted to miss the deal so I chose Frosty Blue, Passionate Purple and Pink Crush. You can see the haul HERE.
Here is the NOTD with Frosty Blue Nail Enamel.

I always had this craving for lip creams ever since I came to know that such a thing existed ! I had the choice to pick from Bourjois and Faces. When it came to availability Bourjois was better than that of Faces which made me buy this Lip Cream.

I have always been wanting to try some product from Lush. Initially Lush was not available in my place and I had an excuse. When Lush launched their store in EA Mall here I couldn't wait any longer. I browsed through many blogs to find the best Lush product for myself. I decided to get 'Angels on Bare Skin' cleanser and then it was time for me to visit the store.
Here is what I bought at last. How did my purchase change from a cleanser to a foot lotion? Also a Peek- a-Boo for all of you.
