August 2014 Haul - Clothing, Footwear and Accessories

I already mentioned here [in a couple of posts] that these days I have been spending more on non-makeup items like clothing, bags, shoes and accessories. I do not have any specific reason behind this but I feel I have enough make up for me to use but no girl can have enough clothing, footwear and bags.. and so do I ! This month I realized that I hardly bought any make up or skin care and so I decided to show you all what I grabbed during the huge sale that happened in the month of July and August.

Essie nail enamels are my current favorites and I am looking forward to expand my collection slowly in all ways possible.

Also, I am loving all the shades of the recently launched Neon 2014 collection, so if my luck favors me then you can see those gorgeous shades in the blog here :) Today you will be seeing a pretty baby pink shade here named "we're in it together".

Nyassa Berry Berry Handmade Soap : Photos, Review

Out of the bunch of products I received from Nyassa I first wanted to review this Berry Berry soap. I finished using my TBS shower gel and for a change I wanted to use a soap. I easily get bored with bath products and since this one was a sample size soap I thought I need not worry about it. Also the fruity fragrance was too hard to resist and hence I opened the package the very next day and started using it without any expectations. Read on to know how this berry berry soap worked on my skin.

Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser Invisible Oil : Photos, Review, Swatch

Hair care being my biggest challenge these days I am open to try anything on my hair to make it look the best. Years and years of chemical treatments definitely has its effects and it needs a lot of patience to set a routine and maintain the little hair that I am left with right now. Bumble and Bumble Oil was a part of the Sephora Oil set and I read a lot of reviews before trying it on me. I was worried if it would make my hair worse, but now I am glad I tried this one.

Gia Bath and Body Works Body Mist in Kenzo Flower : Photos, Review

Gia Bath and Body Works is an amazing brand when it comes to bath and body products. Being a perfume hoarder when I came to know that the brand had some amazing body mists I had to try them out too. That is how I got hold of the Kenzo Flower Body Mist by Gia. I have already reviewed the Kenzo Flower fragrance here in the blog and it failed to impress me. So I didn't expect much from Gia's Kenzo Flower Body Mist too but let us see how it fared on me !

Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict Lipstick in Desert Rose : Photos, Review, Swatch & LOTD

Glossy, creamy, balmy lipsticks are my favorites and I am more comfortable wearing them than the super matte and drying ones ! When Lakme launched the gloss addict range I had to try at least one shade. Though I didn't have time to visit the Lakme counter directly there were heaps of reviews by my co-bloggers which helped me to select a shade online. Actually, the shades I wanted were not in stock and this shade 'Desert Rose' was my last choice. I was not sure about how it would look on me but still I went ahead and got one for myself.

Dabur Vatika Enriched Olive Hair Oil : Photos, Review, Swatch

My friend used to have gorgeous hair and whenever I asked her about her hair care routine she emphasized on the fact that she used only olive oil on her hair. Since olive oil is very sticky I never felt like trying it. That is when I received the Dabur Vatika Enriched Olive Hair Oil for me to try. I finished using my favorite hair oil but the day I stopped using it I had severe hair fall again. So I started using the Dabur Vatika Hair Oil a couple of months back which claims to reduce hair fall. Read on to know if it controlled my hair fall.

Golden Smokey Eye Make Up in 8 Easy Steps : Tutorial / Pictorial, EOTD

Recently I tried an eye makeup that was appreciated by a couple of my friends and they were very keen to know how I did it. Rather than teaching them separately I thought I can do a tutorial/pictorial here so that all of you girls can learn this easy eye makeup and try it at home. Trust me, the eye makeup is as easy as it sounds and if you are not very confident with your eye makeup [especially with smokey eyes] then this will be an easy start.

Accessories Love ♥ - Peter Pan Collar Necklace

When it comes to jewellery / accessories I am definitely not a person who is very comfortable wearing them but the recent trend made me incline a little towards such accessories. Only very recently I have been collecting and using such accessories on me. When paired the right way it definitely makes a huge difference to the outfit and the overall look too. My little cousin went on a short trip to Delhi and she got this little gift for me [yes she is the one who got me Bobbi Brown products - Shown Here] - it is a peter pan collar necklace.

What I Got In Mail?

Every time I hear my door bell I wish it is a courier or a gift ! Irrespective of whether I have ordered something or not I always get excited when I hear the door bell in the after noon. On one such day this package from Nyassa came to me as a sweet surprise. I always wanted to try their products but I first wanted to finish the bath and body products I already had. I was lucky enough to get a mail from them asking if I could try their products. I agreed immediately and this is what I got.

MAC Pro Palette Eye Shadow x 4 : Photos, Review

I started my eye shadow collection slowly once I loved seeing colors on my lids. Seeing the colors my close family and friends wanted to know how I do it and I started helping them with their eye make up. It came out well a couple of times and from then on I decided to get all the basic shades both for myself and my friends. At a point I badly wanted a palette to hold the singles as it was not safe to carry them just like that in my hand bag. I headed to the MAC store to get a palette and got this Pro Palette Eye Shadow x 4 which could hold four eye shadows in it.

The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Hand Wash : Photos, Review, Swatch

It is sad that our hands and legs have been the most neglected part of our body. For the amount of work done by our hands and legs they must be pampered a lot. Since I have dry skin it shows obviously in my hands and legs. So I don't have an option but to take care of them. I used to scrub them once or twice a week and always moisturize them with loads of hand creams and body butters. Here is one such product that would pamper your hands on a daily basis.

What did I pick up finally?

Whenever you have wide range of options to choose from, either you end up picking up more than one or you ask your friends to help you choose the best. I did the same and I asked my readers to suggest me a good pair of glasses from Happster out of the four shown here. The options were amazing and I was really confused to pick just one out of the four. Finally as per all your suggestion I decided to pick up the model called Delavis in Melon Red. 

Before showing you the glasses I HAVE to show you how the package reached me !

Lip Colors close to MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection Lipstick in Mystical : Collection, Comparison

This is the third post in which I am talking about MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection and a lipstick in particular from the collection. You know I am talking about the shade 'Mystical'. A few of you had mailed me and asked me to suggest shades close to the shade 'Mystical' and few dupes if possible. The shade is definitely a easily dupable one and I am sure there are a couple of dupes available in the market. I dug in to my collection to see the shades that are very close to MAC Mystical.

MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection Cremesheen Lipstick Mystical : Photos, Review, Swatch, LOTD & FOTD

You would have already read the funny story behind how I got hold of this lipstick from MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection and the shade name is 'Mystical'. I was so desperate to get this shade for myself ever since I saw the packaging and the swatches in the web. Making the long story short [just in case if you haven't read it already] I was the lucky one to get the last piece of this lipstick available in Chennai. I have never been so excited about buying a lipstick, in fact any cosmetics so far !
