I have mixed feelings when I do the haul posts every month ! especially when the haul is a bit huge :p As mush as I enjoy buying them through out the month, I feel bad when I gather all of them together in the month end. I am one confused shopaholic ;) I know I have been spending a lot over the past few months and I am thinking of various options to shop and yet feel happy and stay without guilt :D So here is all what I got this month.

NYX Heather is my first and only lip stick from the brand. I have their lip creams but just one lipstick so far. I have read too many good reviews about this amazing shade but was not very sure whether this will suit me. I got this from a blog sale and my guess was right :P It suits me. Other credits to this lipstick - the first lipstick I broke by twisting it out completely and thus the first lipstick I had to store in my refrigerator.

Ever since I tried one nail polish from Colorbar I wanted to buy more and more. Vidya made the job so easy by putting up a sale here and I grabbed all three Colorbar nail enamels. I bought the shades Sizzling Pink, Starhit Pink and Desire. I have already shown a Colorbar Nail Enamel HERE in the shade Exclusive 29 - a pretty pista green and yellow duochrome.

I know you have already seen so many reviews of the same and why am I reviewing this again? Honestly my intention is not to waste your time nor my time as well but to stress the significance of this kajal in my every day routine. Hoping the same way it would help you too :) None of the reviews online made me buy this kajal until I saw this on Vidya's eyes. She had done a fab job with her perfect application and immediately I got this kajal on the same day.

I am learning a lot of new things about make up everyday and this process would never stop. All this while I was using the basic elf brushes for my makeup and always wanted to invest in some good brushes [ a part of the learning process]. Friends come at the right time and thus Preetha came and suggested me to try The Body Shop Kabuki. I just rushed to the store and got this one. I am still confused whether this is what she told me to buy [Nature's Minerals or Extra Virgin Minerals???] but I am in complete love ♥ with this brush.

I was confused whether to do this or not but finally decided to do this post. Few days back I saw a pic of a cute little baby with good eye makeup and lip color as well - she looked like a doll!! I shared it in my Facebook page with a caption - 'I am worried now' , coz I never want to see my kid with so much makeup any day !! Might be in her late teens she can :p

Do note that it is Aigner Too Feminine 'Spring' and not 'just' the 'Too Feminine' that comes in a hot pink bottle and all girls would love it just for the pink in it :D If I had gone to the stores to buy this I am sure I would have blindly picked up the pink version. When I asked my sister to buy this for me I never knew the pink version existed !! I got a sample of this perfume and I loved the fragrance that made me ask my sister to get it for me.

Long back I read the review of this eye mask by Faces and from then on I have been hunting for it. Unfortunately none of the Faces [read H&G] store around my house had this in stock. I had told everyone to contact me once they get stock and so far no one did :p During my Diwali shopping I spotted this in a clothing store and was so happy that I grabbed it immediately.

I have been drooling over these Colorbar true glosses ever since they were launched and I never got a chance to try them at the stores. Since I couldn't wait any longer I just randomly chose 3 and ordered them online [I wanted 5]. I am reviewing those 3 shades for you. I 'might' buy 2 more but only after trying them at the stores, you'll know why by the end of this review..

How did I forget about Crabtree & Evelyn all these days? I like their products as much as I like Forest Essentials and The Body Shop or even more !! My first love was their Rose Water hand cream and from then on I fell in love their products, however their rose water collections always tops my favorite list. The fragrance is so mild and soothing that I go back to rose water again and again, guess this is the 4th time :D

Having already said [reviewed] a lot about the INGLOT Freedom System Eye shadows today I shall just share three more shades from the same 'pearl' finish range. Every time I go to INGLOT I want to try the other finish as well but end up buying only the pearl ones. There are still a couple of them to buy from the same range as they didn't have stock then :p Waiting for Pree's visit so that we can do a massive shopping again ;)

I usually prefer waxing and sometimes when we are totally unprepared we might not be able to run to parlors and that is when I go for razors. The reason behind why I got these Bic razors is not any reviews, suggestions but just how colorful it looks. Also for some reason I don't like to use the same razor more than once and these looked like disposable ones :D so I just picked these up.

As much as I love purse, wallets and hand bags I love coin purse too. I am very picky when it comes to coin purse and thus this is just the 2nd one I have got so far. The cute little coin purse has a sweet story behind that makes me love it even more. If you like to be organized then grab a coin purse soon, trust me it makes your handbag look more decent ;) when opened :p ;)

So here is another TBS Body Butter review for you today :D Don't worry, I am not here to write a lengthy review of the Body Butters again as I have already reviewed them HERE and HERE. Having already used the normal Body Butter and the Duo version as well I really can't pick just one of them but fragrance wise I can give you an idea and that is what I am going to do today with a little more info.

I haven't tried many products from Benefit and how I came across this not-so-known body balm is a simple story. It was a gift from my cousin :) Initially I didn't know what purpose it serves. Though I got a rough idea after opening the packaging, I did google to find out whether my guess is right :p and yes it was.

As much as we love roaming around in the malls and shopping there we do love shopping online. I still prefer going to the malls but many of my friends completely prefer online shopping that they almost forgot the usual shopping, especially for cosmetics. Some times when I really can't resist and I am stuck at home, I just browse for the products and order them online. We do get some awesome discounts online that tempts us so badly. Here are my top 6 online shopping destinations for makeup and skin care [in random order] in India [of course].
One of my cousin wanted me to do this post and here it goes for her and all of you too :)

There are very few brands that sells their product with amazing fragrance and all such brands are my favorites :D The Body Shop and Forest Essentials have never disappointed me in that aspect. Having tried many products from The Body Shop I took a break and hopped on to Forest Essentials recently. Already being in love with their soaps here is another product from the same brand. Read further to see how it scored.

Keratinology - the science of salon beauty is a product of Sunsilk. During my school days when my hair was really healthy all I used was Sunsilk shampoo. The Advanced Reconstruction Program provides intensive repair to prolong the beauty of salon treated hair. When I got the package that has the shampoo, conditioner and mask the first thing I noticed is the amazing smell.. followed by the packaging.
|Forgive me for the bad lighting.. It has been raining since morning and this is the best I could do :(|

I call these lipsticks the 'Queen Sisters' and you'll know why when you see the pics :D I so loved the glossy glam packaging that I couldn't stop with one. It was hard for me to decide between a pink and a purple !! and also for the reason we don't get Rimmel here I grabbed two of these lipsticks. One is Moisture Renew and the other is Color Show Off Lipstick.
