September Haul !

I am back from my trip and I am getting back to my routine slowly but yet I don't have the energy or push to do a post here ! I do have a lot of posts lined up including the little haul I did in Singapore and I am telling myself that I have to be back in form really soon. The holiday mood just refuses to get off me.. lol ! Coming to this month's haul, it is more of skin and hair care and very little cosmetics. Yet a good bunch of products to make me feel satisfied.

Essie Nail Lacquer In Madison Ave-Hue : Photos, Review, NOTD

Essie nail lacquers are my current love and each color I try makes me fall in love with the brand and range even more. Today the shade I am going to review is one of the shades launched with Essie Madison Ave-Hue Spring 2013 collection. Out of the 8 shades I got 6 are from this collection and those were all the shades launched in the collection. So I am a proud owner of the entire Essie Madison Ave-Hue Spring 2013 collection.

September 2014 Empties

As promised earlier I waited for a while before doing this empties post. Yes, it has been 2 months already since I did an empties post here as I wanted to gather a good bunch of products that I managed to empty and an empties post with just 2-3 products sounded meaningless to me. I wanted to motivate myself and my readers to use the products and finish them up. So I feel today's post would do that a little bit at least.

Aura Vedic Skin Lightening Oil : Photos, Review & Swatch

The first product I tried from AuraVedic was a mask and I was totally impressed with the way it worked on my skin. It used to be one of my favorite masks only until they changed the formula. The new version didn't work for me and without knowing the change in formula I wanted to repurchase the mask. The mask was only available as a combo with this skin lightening oil. That is how this slim bottle reached me along with the mask.

Nyassa Rosaleda Body Mist : Photos, Review

I love trying different scents, especially when Indian brands like Nyassa introduces them I get very excited about it. I feel not many Indian brands are into fragrances, so whenever I get a chance I grab a couple of them. Lucky Me, I got the Rosaleda Body Mist along with a bunch of other products the brand sent out to me. You could see them here. From the name, I expected it to smell something floral and rosy and it was exactly the same.

Colorbar Sheer Creme Lust Lipstick in Pink Flamingo : Photos, Review, Swatch & LOTD

Sheer Lipsticks are my kind of lipsticks as they would feel very light on lips and also I am very comfortable wearing them. However very few sheer lipsticks are pigmented too and such lipsticks are my absolute favorites. When Colorbar recently launched the sheer creme lipsticks I was curious to try them out hoping they would be pigmented too. To start with I just got one shade online and the name of the shade is Pink Flamingo.

Gia Bath and Body Works Aloe Creme Silk Soap : Photos, Review

You all already know how much I love Gia's Bath and Body products and here is one more addition to the list. This time it is a soap named Aloe Creme Silk Soap. As always the ingredients list is pretty impressive and her soaps have always been the most tempting products for me. Each soap is really bulky and the first thing I did after sniffing them is to slice them into 3 pieces so that I can use them one by one, than to let the whole huge soap soak in water !

MAC Eye Brow Pencil in Stud : Photos, Review, Swatch, Before & After Pics

I always felt I have eye brows that need not be filled and it looks good just by itself only until a friend recommended me to try MAC eye brow pencil in Stud. She swears by the product and ever since then I wanted to try the eye brow pencil. When I asked the MUA at the MAC store she asked me to try Spiked but I insisted I try Stud. Once I tried Stud the MUA herself suggested I go with Stud and I need not even try Spiked as it worked perfectly for me ! So that is how I got this brow pencil for myself.

Accessories Love ♥ - Steve Madden Hamil Yellow Sandals

When Steve Madden opened its first store in Chennai I was the most happiest of all ! It is okay if you disagree ;) The mall very close to my place is where it was opened and from then I visit the store every time I visit the mall. Though I felt their products were a bit expensive I always loved the brand for its unique designs, be it their foot wear, accessories or bags. I was waiting for the sale season and I grabbed some amazing products at great rates ! You could see the details here.

NYX Matte Lipstick Audrey : Photos, Review, Swatch & LOTD

I am not a fan of matte lipsticks nor I am comfortable with their drying formula. Also, a couple of matte lipsticks that I tried in the past sucked up the little moisture left in my lips, leaving my lips cracked and bleeding. So matte lipsticks have always been a night mare to me. My little cousin loves matte lipsticks and she got one from NYX recently. She asked me to give it a try saying it is not drying and at the same time creamy too. I was curious and tried it on me.

Pretty Secrets - Not everything is pretty !!

I have been debating whether I should do this post or not because I usually do not encourage or share anything negative in the blog here but after 3 months I decided to go ahead and do this post for the following reasons,
1. Hoping this would be noticed by the brand and they might take necessary action [at least now].
2. If not now and if not me, at least in the future they might make sure that no body suffers a bitter experience.
3. A little warning to my readers before they decide to place any huge order with this online portal.

If you are still confused then let me make it clear I am talking about my frustrating experience with Pretty Secret's after sales service.

Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color in Pink Blossom : Photos, Review, Swatch, LOTD & FOTD

Bobbi Brown is a new brand in my collection and ever since they opened their stores in India I have been adding on products in my wish list. Luckily my cousin visited Delhi and bought a couple of products for me. I let her choose the shade herself and I was ready to go out of my comfort zone and try any shade ! Being a sheer lipstick lover my first choice was obviously the Sheer Lip Colors from Bobbi Brown. Today I will be showing you the shade Pink Blossom.
