Do you guys remember the last time I did a haul post? Me neither. I’ve been meaning to do this post since last 2 months or so but I just didn’t get around to clicking the pictures. Yesterday I told myself, “Shanaya if you want to start using the Guerlain Bronzer before it expires then click the damn pics!”.
Yesterday: Clicked the picture. (White Duvet which I bought just to click pictures, Check. Chair so I can climb above and get the perfect angle, Check. Some Iced Tea, Check (Hey! A girl has her needs you know!))
Today: Editing the picture. (Also do you like these pictures? Just the images were looking pretty plain, so I decided to pimp it up with some doodle!)
2:46 AM: Writing the content. (If I can’t sleep, might as well be productive than window shop online right?)
*So much gibber jabber hence should not write post midnight?
Maybelline launched some new goodies in their latest collection and were kind enough to send a few my way so I could review it for you guys. Here we have Maybelline Hyper Matte Liquid Liner (Loved the Hyper Glossy one, looking forward to trying this out), Maybelline Color Sensational Eye Palette in Rose Quartz Pink (Review coming your way soon!) and Maybelline Magnum Barbie Mascara. (The kid in me squealed a little! Okay, Okay she did some happy dance too.)
L’Oreal Infallible Pencil Eyeliner in 240 Pure Purple, (Munch, Crunch, Gobble, Sorry took a snack break), L’Oreal Infallible Mega Gloss Dazzle in 210 Disco Ball & Gloss Me I’m Gorgeous are the part of L’Oreal 2016 Cannes Collection. I’m very excited for these glosses as Metallic lips are major makeup trend this season.
I got the Benefit Watt’s Up! Highlighter from the Mumbai Sephora store. I’ve been seeing the strobing makeup look all over YouTube and wanted to try it out for myself. After doing some research I found out that this highlighter by Benefit is one of the best one available in the market, so I decided to take a plunge and get it (Mind you it’s not like me to spend money on expensive makeup so it took a lot of me and the SA’s pushing to finally buy it) This highlighter is for Rs. 2,810. (Wow, the realisation just hit me right now that I did spend quite a lot on few of these products. *My wallet and I share a moment of silence*).
As the summers came in my skin was breaking out like crazy, I am not kidding I was getting white heads and acne all over my face. It became worse when people started noticing how bad my skin gotten. So I decided to switch up my moisturiser, I was using Bio-Oil in the winters and due to the change in season it started to get too heavy for my skin. I remember using a sample of the Clinique Drastically Different Moisturizing gel last year and had noticed how clear my skin looked the very next day. Since nothing else was really working I thought I’ll give this a try and I am happy to say, Money well spent. It’s a really expensive moisturiser and costs about Rs. 3650 which honestly for anyone would be quite a lot, I bought this in march and I’ve only used 40% of this (You only need one pump, pea size) in the last 3 months so I know it will last me for another 3.
Colourpop & Guerlain Paris:
Magali was kind enough to order this Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Bumble for me. (If you want to know how to buy these or any other international makeup you can watch her video here). This lipstick has now become my go-to! The shade looks perfect on me and I get so many compliments every time I wear it.
Guerlain Paris Terracotta 4 Season Bronzing Powder in 05 Moyen – Brunettes *Sighs* I have been wanting this bronzer for so long (Almost a year) but A. It was not available in India and B. It was freaking Rs. 5000! *Say waaaaahhhh?* Like I said before, it’s not like me to spend lot on Makeup, 5 out of 7 days a week I’m thugin’ it with no makeup, messy bun and dirty pjs in my room as I watch back to back episodes of GOT. So it just doesn’t make sense investing into something that I wont use that often. But this bronzer is so beautiful *misty eyes* it’s send from above (Going a little over board here guys, bear with me). So on my back from Paris I spotted the Gurlain counter and after going past it 7 times I thought to myself, to do or not to do. Then I heard the announcement, “Boarding has begun for the flight to Mumbai, requesting all the passengers to kindly start heading towards the boarding area” *Damn it!* Automatically I heard myself say “Hi, can you please suggest me the bronzer for my skin tone.” *Its happening! Its happening! She swatched two shades on either side of my cheeks and I picked 05 Moyen – Brunettes. *And that how guys I met
your mother this bronzer*.
Juicy Couture & Valentino
As I was leaving for Paris I asked my mom and sister what they want from there and they squealed “Perfumes!” in union, to which I said “Me too!”. At the Duty free I spotted the Juicy Couture Viva La Juice La Fleur & Gold Couture and Valentino’s Valentina perfume at flat 40% – 50% off, need I say more? Got each of them for Rs. 2,500 or less.
It’s 3:40 AM right now and I am finally finishing this post, if you lasted this long, kudos to you my friend! because I can only imagine what you must have gone through trying to read this post and wondering what this girl is on. Honestly though I am not planning to proof read this post, YOLO for spelling mistake and grammatical errors. (Incase you do spot any do comment below please?)
