June 2012 Haul ..

We actually (always) don't do what we plan or prepare ourselves for.. With the money I saved [SEE HERE] all I planned was MAC. The store was right next to the escalator when I entered the mall and just before I stepped in, my mind voice stopped me "Well, I do have few stuffs from MAC, why don't I try INGLOT??!!". Again supporting my new decision, my mind voice said "I can buy more if I go to INGLOT rather than just buying a lipstick and blush from MAC" So without giving a second thought I headed straight to INGLOT and I was not disappointed :D

NYX Girls Duo Chrome Nail Polish [NGP 200 Sea of Cortez] Review, NOTD

My love for glitters and duo chromes will never die I guess :) So it is the story behind the purchase of this NYX girls nail polish in Sea of Cortez. I never had an intention to purchase any nail polish until I saw this color. The bluish green color is just amazing that I couldn't skip this at all. I have very few NYX products and this is one among them.

Ponds White Beauty Daily Spot-less Lightening Cream Review

When I hear 'Ponds' all I can remember is the tiny white pot of Ponds Cream that my mom used during my early school days. I never used any products from this brand until I got a chance to try the Ponds Age Miracle. After which I got this Daily Spot-less Lightening cream for review purpose from the company PR. I didn't have any expectations, lets see whether it did live up to its claim.

Impulse Goddess Body Spray Review

If there is a body spray that I like as much as I like my Lancome Miracle then it would be the Impulse Goddess body spray. I have not tried the other variants but got so much hooked on to this that I never felt like trying anything else. This is a citrus fragrance and people who love citrus fragrance can just close your eyes[read nose ;)] and buy this one.

Kryolan Lip Gloss [Glitter Pink] Review, LOTD

I am a lip gloss fan.. err.. freak.. or whatever you want to name it. When Varshini shared that there is Kryolan store in Chennai I was super excited and we visited the store one day. Never planned anything but got this cute lip gloss in the shade 'Glitter Pink'. I also got a eye cum lip pencil which will be reviewed pretty soon.

This review goes for Shruthi :)

Colorbar Eyeshadows [002,003,006] Review & EOTD

The Colorbar eye shadows come in a cute little pot with a wide range of colors to confuse us. My friend Priya gave me the first one Copper Crush and loved it so much that I got 2 more colors as well - Spicy Brown & Green Stroke. All shades are amazing, no doubt. So here is the review, swatches and EOTD.

Accessories Love ♥ - How much did I save?

We buy so many things and very few really stay in touch with us almost everyday. I never thought this particular product will be of so much help and particularly I never thought I will use it regularly :D Well, I am talking about a money saver that I bought a year back during my shopping at Dubai. You want to see the entire haul, then GO HERE.

L'Occitane Verbena Body Lotion Review

My sister is one who never gets tired sending me gifts and the L'Occitane products I have currently are all from her. The body lotion is one thing I am using regularly these days and thought it is time to review it. Next I would be reviewing their shampoo and conditioner and might be the soap after that.

The review was requested by Ankita :)

MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick [Cosmo] Review, LOTD

I am glad and proud that I own the much raved MAC Cosmo lipstick :D Also, this is my first lipstick from MAC :D I first tried the lipstick at the MAC Store in Chennai and felt the shade doesn't suit me. It usually happens that the most popular lippies doesn't suit me!! Maybelline 'My Mahogany' never showed up on my lips :( My craving for cosmo was still on and during my shopping at Dubai I tried it again and to my surprise both the SA and hubby told it actually looked good on me [I felt the same too :D]. 

I had very badly maintained lips while I tried the shade first, so whatever lipstick I would have tried then, it would have looked bad on me - I was thinking hard and this could have been the only possible reason for the lipstick to look bad on me initially.
