MAC Lady Danger Lipstick ~ LOTD, Swatches

Hello, Everyone! How have you all been? It seems like I haven't done a post like this in sooo long! This is my first LOTD after childbirth and, as you can see, the little one woke up from his afternoon nap. He was actually fussing there. Face/Neck scratching & hair pulling.....Ahh, where are those mittens?!!! And I had to wipe off that lipstick fast fast, because......
MAC Lady Danger Lipstick (Matte) ~ Described as Vivid bright coral-red. I got MAC Lady Danger mainly because I wanted an orange version of MAC Ruby Woo, my most favorite red lipstick EVER, and the vivid coral is punctuated by just the right amount of red to make it exactly what I had in mind. Well, almost exactly what I had in mind.....

Etude House meets Disney's Fairytale Princesses - Snow White, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine. This Limited Edition collection is another one of Etude House's many gorgeous creations. They outer boxes are made like little books....so CUTE! And I have to mention again how awesome the reasonable prices are! Why isn't this brand in India yet???!!!
The only sad thing is, I missed out on the lipsticks because they sold out everywhere. I know I'm still on my Lipstick Ban, but the packaging is too pweety! (Pic below). I also didn't get anything from the Jasmine pieces - a mascara & nail set.

Keeping It Simple Skin Care Products

SNORING. I don't do it, and I can't can't can't sleep with people who do. Oh, the things I do to make husband stop snoring - when he does snore, only sometimes, when he's very exhausted (Thank Goodness!) I pinch his nostrils so he'll breathe through his nose, and when I can't reach his nose, I take his hand and shake shaKE SHAKE it really hard until he stirs.
However, during the last 2 weeks, husband told me that I'd been snoring! Multiple times! So you can  imagine how exhausting it has been in MommyLand. That means I can no longer spend more than a few minutes doing my face each day, and the number of products I'm using have reduced.
Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes, Rs.50 (7 wipes) ~ I ran out of Cleansing Oil, and my favorite MAC Cleanse Off Oil was Out Of Stock the last time, so I've been using different types of wipes & cleansing pads. These are my favorite, coz they do the job efficiently + they remove waterproof mascara as well. 
Clean & Clear Morning Energy Energizing Lemon Face Wash, Rs.99 ~  Simply, a nice refreshing facial cleanser. It is not the same as my favorite Clean & Clear Morning Energy Skin Brightening Facial Scrub, but they look and smell similar.
Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream, Rs.599 ~ I needed a new eye cream, and this has been working quite well on the fine lines under my eyes. It has Retinol & Hyaluronic Acid - two ingredients that are famous for reducing wrinkles.
ZA True White Emulsion, Rs.899 ~ I'm really liking this. It's like a serum-cum-moisturizer. It has a runny consistency and makes my skin look dewy and luminous.
La-Roche Posay Effaclar A.I. Targeted Breakout Corrector, Rs.890 ~ I couldn't rave about this little tube enough. It is my go-to when I get a horrendous pimple. I recently got a huge on my nose, and it disappeared in 2 days without any scarring.
Nivea Essential Care Lip Balm, Rs.100 (Free with a Nivea Body Lotion) ~ I was surprised how effective this is! After my delivery and stay at the hospital, my lips cracked like anything. This healed them completely.
Water ~ And lastly, good ol' H2O. Lots & LOTS of it! I think I drink about 3 liters per day.

So, that's all I'm currently using. 
No special (read: pricey) Cleanser, 
No Scrub, 
No Toner,
No Night Cream 


Good news is, my skin is doing okay. It just shows that we don't really need a lot or pricey products to maintain healthy skin.



What simple skin care products are you loving these days?


Okay, I gotta go! My son is waking up now. 
I guess now I have to keep my blog posts simple too, and I shouldn't blabber to muc....
