Haul : YSL, Burberry, Chanel, Hourglass etc

Haul : YSL, Burberry, Chanel, Hourglass etc

I’ve been on a naughty haul! Well, technically, this is a collective haul over the last two months. Some of these are gifts since it was my birthday in Jan. So I have a mix of blushes and went made over lipsticks mainly. I also got a couple of Formula X for Sephora nail polishes but I forgot to take pictures of those. I really love everything I got. I’ve already used the mascara and the YSL lipstick in Ultimate Beige a lot, I love it! Burberry Beauty is something I was looking forward to buying. It’s expensive but it’s actually cheaper than Chanel, Dior or YSL. They have an incredible range and there’s a lot of focus on nudes as well. Anyway, here’s the...

Ebay Shopping Guide for Makeup, Nail Polish and Random Stuff

Ebay Shopping Guide for Makeup, Nail Polish and Random Stuff

I’m finally taking the time to write this all down. When I first started with eBay (over 3 years ago), it was very overwhelming. I’m hoping this will serve as a good guide for newbies and or just for people to discover new sellers. There are a couple of important things I want to mention first though. All of the sellers mentioned here ship worldwide but there are at times certain exceptions like Russia, Brazil or Italy. Definitely check the product description.  I’ve also purchased from all of them before and I’ve had a good experience with them. I’ve received items within a month and in good condition. If it’s shipped from US it should take 20-25 days....

Purplle.com Haul and Shopping Review

Purplle.com Haul and Shopping Review

I was looking for volumizing shampoos and to my delight I was happy to find the Kerastase range at Purplle.com. I though I’d review this site as well! What I Hauled  OPI  : Nail Polish :  Mrs. O’Leary’s BBQ (burgundy shade) Bath and Body Works : Body Lotion : Into The Wild Kerastase : Shampoo : Bain Volumactive   Purplle.com They have a very large product range and a number of brands from low cost to high end. I’ve mentioned a couple of brands that standout in the Checklist below. It’s an all-round good site to buy make up, skincare and hair products. I don’t find the design of the site particularly appealing. I’m also quite annoyed with the...

Mango.com Haul and Shopping Review

Mango.com Haul and Shopping Review

I recently hauled form Mango.com and I thought I’d share my experience with you! I was actually going through majorbrands.com but they didn’t have everything I wanted in stock so I looked to the main website. What I Hauled  I got a mint green top a sheer top panel. A beige rectangular mini satchel bag. A black suede-like pump with rose gold metal on the toe. MANGO.COM So you get free delivery to India if you purchase more than Rs. 6500 otherwise you have to pay Rs.790 (approximately) for shipping. Why so much? Because they ship it from Spain! I had no idea! I only realised it when they sent me a DHL tracking number, which intrigued me and saw the origin was Barcelona. Still,...

Collective haul

Collective haul

These are some items that I collected over the last 2-3 months. I thought I’d share it all together as there was no point posting about it individually. There’s quite a lot here that I’ve started using some of it already and will be reviewing soon. Some are backups and I can’t wait to start using them!         01. Make Up Remover : H2O : Dual Action Eye Makeup Remover I’m out of my No.7 Make up remover. This seemed affordable and I read good reviews about it. Thought I’d give it a try.   02. Eye Shadows : Inglot : 5 eye shadow palette I’m in love with this! I decided to get a 5 eye shadow palette. I wanted a good...

MajorBrands.in Online Shopping Review

MajorBrands.in Online Shopping Review

I recently had an Inglot haul delivered from MajorBrands.in. I thought I’d share my review on them as well! Since it’s a part of the group that actually opens up brands in India, they come under a niche category. They have a select few brands that aren’t available on any other Indian shopping site. Also the only place where you get Inglot in India!! You can still get Mango, Aldo elsewhere on sites like ASOS. They’ve also recently started selling La Senza and Bebe. They frequently have discounts as well. Their service and delivery time is excellent. My order was confirmed in 1 day. It took about 2 more days to dispatch and after that took 2 days to get delivered. So,...

Haul and MedPlusBeauty Review

I was looking for bronzey neutral shades that I didn’t have. I also wanted a blue based red lipstick and Ruby Woo seems so out of reach. I decided to buy Revlon’s True Red. I decided to give MedPlusBeauty a try. I’ll start by saying that I’m pleased with the haul and the website. But the way they handle delivery is atrocious! And I probably won’t buy again from MedPlus because of it. More on the story below, I’ll start with the goodies! 01. NYX – Single Eyeshadow – Taupe 02. NYX – Single Eyeshadow – True Taupe 03. NYX – Single Eyeshadow – Pure Skin 04. NYX – Single Eyeshadow – Peachy Bronze 05. NYX –...

February Blisscovered Box

February Blisscovered Box

I signed up for blisscovered quite late and they offered to send me the February box! The feeling you get when you return home tired from office, and there’s a pretty unopenened package in front of you is too good!! This months contents were quite diverse but I wished there was more makeup less skincare. Afterall, there is only so much skincare you can use in a month. I won’t review the contents just yet. Photo below!           Contents 01. Forrest Essentials – Neem and Saffron Face Wash 02. H2o – Sea Salt Body Butter 03. Calvin Klein – Shock 04. Chambor – Eyeliner in Forever Blue 05. Lancome – Genifique – Youth...
