July Haul

This month began with awesome shopping at EA shopping mall with Varshini. As I had mentioned before I was waiting to share the haul with all you girls here. But I didn't stop with that, I bought few more beauty  stuffs...:D Hope you enjoy the haul with me :)

I shopped at/from
  • Avon
  • Lush
  • Craftsvilla
  • Pantaloons
  • Express Avenue

The nail enamels were so tempting and Neha was also so helpful that I grabbed 5 this time.. Err Hmm.. Yes, you read it right - five nail enamels. A small add on too - anti -perspirant that came very cheap !!!

Avon Simply Pretty Nail Enamels in Frosty Blue, Pink Crush and Passionate Purple. It was in offer and I got 3 for Rs.109 !!! The Feeling Fresh Anti-Perspirant in Satin was again on offer for Rs.59. Then I got the matte nail enamel in Red Velvet and Nail Enamel in Blue Shock. I am so loving the Blue shock :) Both nail enamels together came to Rs.159.

Amount Spent - Rs.350 [Including Shipping]


I have been waiting to go to Lush since they opened their store in Chennai. I wanted to get 'Angels on Bare Skin' but ended up buying the foot cream 'Pied De Pepper'. 

Not a great one for my dry feet but took this one based on the SA's advice :(  This tiny little 100 gm tub had a huge price tag of Rs.860 !!!

Amount Spent - Rs.860


I was eyeing this pouch since a very long time and couldn't spot it for a while. When I spotted this with a discount coupon in hand - I thought this was the best time and bought the pouch.

The multi-color pouch is the one from Craftsvilla and I spent just Rs.200 on this.

Actual Worth - Rs.700
Amount Spent - Rs.200
Amount Saved - Rs.500


I am not an accessories person but always wanted to try a bit of colors and thus ended up buying a pair of earrings and multi-colored bangles.

The earrings costed me Rs.129 and the bangles were Rs.425. Isn't it really colorful.

Amount Spent - Rs.554

Express Avenue

Now comes the best part - I kept the best for the last ;) I shopped at Lifestyle and Health and Glow [Of,course from Lush too].

I got my first lip tint and my first lip creme from Bourjois. I am so excited to use them. I fell in love with them as soon as I tried it in the counter. Also got the most-raved Ponds TM in Sheer Rose. A multi-purpose brown polka-dots pouch [set of 5 - see pic under the heading Craftsvilla] grabbed my attention too :P

Bourjois Lip Creme - Rs.600
Bourjois Lip Tint - Rs.475
Ponds TM - Rs.215
Pouch - Rs.195 [Highly recommended by Varshini]

As I headed to H&G I got the VLCC Anti Tan Pack [a good product] Street Wear Blush and Lotus AloeHydra Aloe Vera Moisturizing Gel.  Though I was very excited to see NYX, I didn't know what to buy and thus ended up buying nothing :P

VLCC Anti Tan Pack - Rs.175
Street Wear Stay On Mineral Blush [Rose Swirl] - Rs.475
Lotus Aloe Hydra Moisturizing Gel - Rs.195

Amount Spent - Rs.2330

This month -
Total Amount Spent - Rs.4295
Total Amount Saved - Rs.500
Best Buys - Avon Nail Enamels, Bourjois Lip products and the pouches :D
