April Haul + Surprise Gifts

Even this month I kept the haul pretty small and pocket friendly :) Happy me now :) Since this is the month of my birthday I thought I can splurge but after Neya came into our lives I kept aside all fun and splurging for her :) So without any more suspense here are the products I got this month. Since all products are from Oriflame I am calling it the Oriflame Haul :) Thank you Varshini :)



List of Products

1.Oriflame Beauty Peel Off Whitener - Rs.169
2.Oriflame Beauty Maxi Lipgloss (Pink) - Rs.369
3.Visions V Stick Blusher Feeling Rosy - Rs.298
4.Oriflame Beauty Powershine Lipstick Trendy Berry - Rs.69
5.Oriflame Beauty Powershine Lipstick Pink Bloom - Rs.69
6.Oriflame Visions V Lip Love Lipstick Coral Red - Rs.39

Total Shopping Expenditure - Rs.1010

Not that I am bad in Maths but Varshini didn't mind those extra 3 rupees :) Don't you think there are too many products for just Rs.1000. I was super dooper happy. I came to know that Varshini was an Oriflame consultant and then ordered my products through her. We planned to meet some day and after post poning it a couple of times we made it one evening at Coffee Day. Though we didn't get much time as Neya was at home and I had to rush back and also Varshini had to make it after a tiring day at work, I will say we had fun. The entire details deserves a separate post and thus I am coming back to the haul now.

1. Oriflame Beauty Peel Off Whitener

I read the review of this product in IMBB and decided to get it. I have not tried it yet but hoping it works well for me.



2.Oriflame Beauty Maxi Lipgloss (Pink)

Since I am a lip gloss person I do not need a reason to buy a lip gloss ;) Though I got this lip gloss in pink it just works as a transparent gloss on my lips. Also from now on I decided to post the swatches along with the products so that you would get a rough idea initially before reading my reviews.



3.Visions V Stick Blusher Feeling Rosy

This is a tiny little blush that gives a light pink tint to the cheeks. I am in love with this product already. Below is the swatch swiped 4-5 times to show the colour.


4.Lipsticks

Now comes the interesting part the lipsticks. I had no idea about these lipsticks until Varshini suggested me to go for these. Especially the Coral Red one was a completely new shade in my collection. Thanks to Varshini who convinced me to try new shades :) I am so loving all the 3 lipsticks. Also I have to mention that the Powershine lipsticks costs Rs.329 whereas Varshini gave those for Rs.69 !!!!!!!!!!!  and the Visions V Lip Love lipstick was Rs.129 and she gave it for Rs.39 !!!! These lippies are really long lasting.

Swatch [swiped twice]- L-R - Pink Bloom, Trendy Berry, Coral Red
Total Amount Spent this Month - Rs.1010
Total Amount Saved this Month - Rs.610
Best Buy of this Month - 2 Powershine Lipsticks and Visions V Lip Love Lipstick

Surprise Gifts

Now comes the best part - Yes, the surprise gifts !!!


Thank you so much Varshini. That was so sweet of you. You were the first to gift me for my birthday this year :)

She packed everything in a cute little pouch :) Since she knew I love lip gloss she gifted me this Oriflame Gloss Berries in Strawberry Kiss.


She didn't stop with this. She filled the pouch with some accessories as well :) A pair of earrings, bracelet / anklet and a key chain :) Ain't I so lucky :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. They might be out of stick for now. Not all items are available all the time. So just tell your rep to get it for you whenever the blush is available.

    Hope this helps Lorena :)
