Hey, everyone! Just posting these swatches quickly.

About: Curated by the very talented designer - Masaba, each lip crayon has a quirky print exclusively designed by her, that spells 90’s nostalgia. This is a limited edition collection of matte lip colors from the Lip Pout range that you cannot resist! It’s time to have some fun and indulge in these 10 vibrant shades inspired by the candies of the 90’s.

There are 10 shades available, and I picked 3:

Gothic Glam Manicure


Nice Girl: "Wow, I love your nails! Where'd you get them done?"

Me: "Really?! I did them myself."

Nice Girl: "Cool! I could never do nail art on my own nails."

Me: "Me neither! This is not really nail art. It's just glitter."

Nice Girl: "Really?! It looks like crystals have been carefully placed, 
and the black tips look like leather!"

That convo made me look at my Lazy Girl Manicure differently, give it a name & a blog post.....

NEW! Maybelline Color Jolt, L'Oreal Lip/Blush Paints, ETC


"Aaahhh!!!"

"How many shades? How much?"

"No, no. No lacquer. No glossy. ONLY MATTE!"

"You have a chair? I have to sit down."

"Please give me cotton."
 (there's no space left on my hands to swatch.)

"Ooh, what's this?! Is it new? Why didn't you show it to me?"

"Oh Lord, have mercy!"

That's me at Lifestyle... or any makeup store for that matter! ;p


I swear the word "Matte" makes me go.... MAD!

Combine that with "Paint", and I'll end up looking stunned at the 
cash counter when the guy says the total amount.

Inexpensive Jewelry Haul


So I see my last Jewelry Haul post is from August 2014 (Post here)!
I'd stopped buying jewelry, except for a few stud sets & hoops from H&M every once in a while. 
And now, I'm kinda obsessed with big statement earrings. I want to wear a nath (big nose ring) too!

Btw, this is a collective haul. I bought these in a span of 4-5 months, not all at once.

Not Giving A F**k!


"
A f*cking disclaimer:This is a book about not giving a f*ck. In order to practically quantify my methods, I've confessed to banishing many objects, concepts, events, activities, and people from my life. You may not agree with all of my choices. Fair. You may even think you recognize yourself in these pages - particularly if you're a parent of small children, a karaoke enthusiast, a friend, family member, or former colleague of mine. If so, you're either correct, or delusional. In any case, if you're offended by anything I've written, then you really need this book. Proceed immediately to page 25: "You Need to Stop Giving a F*ck About What Other People Think."
"
I knew I was gonna really enjoy reading this book when I laughed out loud at the first 3 words. I'm reading it on my Kindle app, because Amazon India (fulfilled) doesn't sell the print version. But I will surely get the paperback, because I want it on my bookshelf! 



So in the introduction, the author talks about the art of mental decluttering by not spending time, energy, and/or money on things that neither make you happy nor improve your life using one method....
The NotSorry Method:

 Step 1: Deciding what you don't give a f*ck about

Step 2: Not giving a f*ck about those things.


LOL! =D

Makeup Haul: Smashbox, Lakmé, Maybelline


You know that feeling when you buy a new shampoo & matching conditioner, and you just can't wait to try them out? You even oil your hair prior to washing, in the hope that the possible hair transformation will be.....mind-blowing! You start out with the shampoo...it doesn't lather....you think: 'Oh, it's because of the oil.', so you squeeze out some more shampoo....and work it into your hair - more vigorously this time....still doesn't lather.... then you instinctively look at the bottle... it's conditioner! You'd mistakenly bought 2 conditioners! 
Yes, people. Thankfully, the other conditioner is a 75 ml one. I thought I bought a big shampoo and a small conditioner. Okay, enough about that. I'm over it. Or I'm just distracted with other things......
