Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm 15 Cherry Me : Photos, Review, Swatch & LOTD

I haven't loved a bunch of products from the same line as much as I loved the Maybelline Baby Lips lip balms ! I liked almost 4 out of the 6 that I got as a gift from my sister :) Every time I try one I feel that would be my favorite out of the lot as each one is sweet in its own way ! Ya, I am talking about the flavor and fragrance too. Today I will be reviewing the variant called 'Cherry Me' and read on to know if the balm is as interesting as its name.

December Empties

Being the year end I wanted to pile up at least half-a-dozen of empty containers and bottles that I have used all these months but I couldn't finish up so much ! Ya, I just got back to routine this week after all hectic planning and shopping for my cousin's wedding. It has been months since I did my regular CTM or even just moisturizing my skin this winter ! So there aren't many products that I managed to finish up this month but a couple of them are really interesting ones.

Maybelline Colorama Verniz & Cor Nail Enamel 40 Graus : Photos, Review, NOTD

Maybelline nail colors have never failed to gain my love and especially when I am shopping online. I will lag some Rs.100 or so to redeem a coupon and I straight away go and pick a Maybelline Nail Polish. On one such online purchase I got tempted to try this bright red nail enamel from Maybelline which was in my shopping list along with the shade nude for quite some time. I so wanted it to be a particular shade of red and Thank God it was the same as what I had wanted.

Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Bronzing Bronzer in Sunset Bronze : Photos, Review, Swatch

When I feel I am still new to blushes [No, don't go and see my collection now ;)] I have not thought about bronzers at all ! I always felt it is more for professionals or people who are really good at carrying it with confidence. When I saw my little cousin (who does some amazing makeup for her age) taking a bronzer out of her bag I was totally shocked and we had a discussion about bronzers for the next couple of minutes. The confidence behind her bronzing look is this little tub of beauty by Maybelline !

Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder 310 Sun Beige : Photos, Review

I always wanted to try the Maybelline Fit Me range which was very much hyped in the blogging world but unfortunately they never launched it here ! My cousin was in Australia and she said she could spot the Fit Me range of products near by. I asked her to try their foundations and pressed powder first. She called me back the same day and thanked me for suggesting the products to her. She didn't forget to carry the same to India to show them to me.

The Body Shop Apple Blossom Eau De Toilette : Photos, Review, Notes

The Body Shop makes some amazing products that are well-known for their amazing fragrance, so trying fragrances from a brand which is known for their scent is justifiable. I have tried a couple of their fragrances before and when I saw these cute bottle of fragrances it was so tempting that I wanted to pick them all ! Unfortunately, these are definitely over-priced and so I just pick them up during their sale time. I picked this bottle which was on 50% off.  They have offers even now at their stores, so if you have been eyeing any TBS product do grab the ones in offer :)

It has already been more than a couple of years ever since the new gel liners were launched and I was not too sure whether to try them or not. I was very comfortable using my pencil liners and busy struggling to learn liquid liners that I almost forgot about these gel liners. I tried a brown one from Maybelline and wanted to get the black one soon. That is when I saw my cousin raving about this gel liner and I gave it a try. Read on to know how I found this gel liner.

This year, like the previous years I have a huge list too and compiling all of them wouldn't be so easy. I just picked a few of them which looks so much away from me :P Ya, I doubt if I would pick it really soon but I want to pick them up at least before Feb. So here is this mini beauty wish list for the New Year 2014.

Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss 58 Emoi : Photos, Review, Swatch & LOTD

I love Chanel cosmetics and especially their lip colors - be it lipsticks, lip pencils or even lip gloss. You would know that if you have been regular here. So far my love for the brand has made me buy three of their lipsticks and this is my second gloss from the brand. You can see the first one reviewed HERE. I took 2 full days to zero down to this shade and that is the longest time I have ever taken to decide anything in my life :P The shade is super gorgeous and I don't regret taking so much time ;)

My cousins have come from Australia and they got some skin care, hair care and cosmetics they have been using over the past few months.

Accessories Love ♥ - Caprese Satchel

Though I have at least a dozen of hand bags at any given point of time :P I was so bored with the ones I had and it has been years [at least 1 year] since I got a hand bag for myself. I have been buying a lot of foot wear, clothing and cosmetics and this time I thought it is time for a good hand bag. My cousin has come from Australia and we so relished our days together at Sydney and the way we were roaming all day in the name of shopping. We wanted to go shopping together again and she helped me pick this cute yellow satchel from Caprese.

In my last month's haul post [HERE] more than anything and on contradictory to what I thought there is something that attracted everybody's attention.

                                  This winter keep your Lips Looking Healthy and Protected 
                                                         With Vaseline Lip Therapy!
~Now protection with SPF 15 and Petroleum Jelly

Chapped lips are a sign of winter. You bundle up in extra layers during the winter months, but your lips are still exposed to the sun, wind, cold, and dry air. With its excellence in skin care, what better than Vaseline lip therapy to nourish your chapped lips.  Let your lips speak louder than your words with Vaseline Lip Therapy!

Our lips have an amazing ability to experience heightened sensations, allowing us to feel the slightest of touch and sense the environment around us.  However, unlike body skin, the skin on our lips does not naturally create its own moisture layer, leaving it susceptible to dryness and chapping. Vaseline Lip Therapy helps to keep lips healthy and protected. The lip therapy range comes with goodness of Vitamin E known for its antioxidant properties and Petroleum jelly that keeps moisture locked in. “Vaseline lip therapy SPF15 not only moisturises and soothes lips but also provides effective protection from the harsh effects of the sun.”

Vaseline offers you 4 variants to cherish your lips.

Mini Blog Sale !

Here is a quick blog sale for today ! I just gathered a handful of products that I hardly used ever since I bought them. Rather than waiting for more products and then hold a sale, I thought it is better to sell them when they are almost brand new and far from the expiry date.

Unlike the usual sale this time I planned to sell them off in bulk so you will see a different sale price tag here !

It feels like it has been ages ever since I reviewed anything here and to give a good start I chose to review a lip product from MAC. This time it is not a lipstick but a lip pencil instead !
