I was a bit skeptical about these when I bought them without sampling first, as there were no testers. They hadn't even hit the shelves yet, I saw a box of newly-launched Maybelline products on the floor at New U.... and I sat on my ankles....and then nobody could stop me!!!
Do they look familiar?
MAC Blush Ombre!
About Maybelline Master Flush Creator
A two-tone blush for a gradation flushed look. Pick up color in one swipe, fit brush to cheek curve and apply gradation color in one stroke.
There are 4 shades, and I picked up 2:
Next To Nude ~ My favorite! It's like having my most favorite MAC Cream Soda (Archies Girl Collection) & Benefit Coralista in one pan.
Tickled Pink ~ This pink is like a combination of MAC Pink Swoon & NARS Angelika.
MAC Blush Ombre Ripe Peach (a cult favorite) & Kindergarten Red
Gosh! I am seeing how similar they look only now at this moment! I wanted to compare the textures and feel of the powders, but I don't know where these are atm. You can have a look at them with the MAC Toledo Collection HERE
I took these pants into the trial room with me, fully prepared to see they'd look totally hideous on me - like most woven & non-stretchy pants. You don't know how many cute floral woven pants I've had to walk away from, because they just never sit well - there's always a disagreement between the waist, thigh, crotch & behind areas. I'd always try 25 & 26 - and I mean 3-5 times each. By the time I left the trial rooms, I used to feel like fainting!
But these! The specs are just perfect + the flare & slits at the bottom make them heels-friendly, and the zipper & bow at the waist!
Next summer, I'm buying floral fabric & taking it to a tailor along with these pants. Cut & make egg-jackly like them, I'll tell him.
Mistake: *Alcohol & Brandy soaked in cotton* >.<
I came across a few articles about the Belly Button recently, and I had to share with you all.
I'd only known about Mustard Oil for chapped lips before, and I feel like I'd been living under a rock that I hadn't heard about the rest of them:
Chapped Lips: Put a few drops of Mustard Oil before going to bed. (This works!)
Glowing Skin: Put a few drops of Almond Oil.
Pigmentation: Apply Lemon Oil.
Acne: Put a dew drops of Neem Oil.
Cold, Flu & Running Nose: Dip a piece cotton in Alcohol, and place it on your belly button.
Improve Fertility: Put drops of Coconut or Olive Oil.
Menstrual Cramps: Dip a piece of cotton in Brandy, and place it on your belly button.
Remember I'm only sharing. It's totally up to you whether you believe it or not.
Me, I'm buying Lemon Oil & Almond Oil, and I'll definitely try the alcohol for flu one when necessary.
P.S: In one of the comments or post, one lady asked:
"What oil can I use to remove my husband?"
"Spread your legs.", she said, and we both burst out laughing.
Though it's not my first time.
Okay, we'll get to that later in the blog post.
I have been meaning to do this post for quite some time, just because I feel like not many people
talk about salon services in detail. Most of the time, I never get a satisfying review
or information on certain services/products that I'm curious about.
So, I'm just gonna ramble about the things I've gotten done on myself, just to put it out there.
I say ramble, because this is a very hotchpotch blog post. Most of the photos are old. I had to search for them in my emails and computer, because I always had to clear out my phone's storage space (damn iphone!)
One Word: Rica
I can't get enough of their White Chocolate Wax!
Ever since I started choosing this over the regular wax, my hair has been growing at a much slower pace, become softer, and my underarm hair have definitely lessened.
This is the Rica Aloe Vera one, which I prefer lately,
coz my legs are very easily agitated these days.
***ALWAYS TELL THE BEAUTY THERAPIST NOT TO MAKE THE WAX TOO HOT BEFOREHAND.***
Doesn't matter how reputed the salon is or how experienced the person waxing your body/facial hair is. If the wax feels too hot, it is too hot and it will burn your skin....and like in one of my underarm waxing sesh, it will peel the skin off! (Which healed, thankfully!)
Price: Rs.1799 for full body. Depends on the salon.
