HoT NeW THiNG: Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper


New Product Releases & Previews

Every Thursday

 (For your weekend shopping list ;))


Today's HNT is Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper - a 2-in-1 brow product that screams "Buy Me! Buy Me!"

One : Because there aren't a lot of options when it comes to brow products in India. 
Two: Because it's so inexpensive!

It's available in 2 shades - Brown & Grey

I got Brown for myself.....

 It has a pencil on one end & a powder on the other end


Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipsticks ~ Photos, Swatches

They are matte, but not dry matte.

Meet the NEW Maybelline Color Show Creamy Matte Lipsticks

I picked up 4 shades:

Rock The Coral M103 I.Am.So.In.Love.With.This.Shade. See it on my lips below.

Flaming Fuchsia M104 ~ Hot pink.

Firecracker Red M202 ~  Orangey red. Not as bright as MAC Lady Danger

Red Carpet M204 ~ No, it's not a dupe for MAC Ruby Woo. That was my first thought too =D

When September Ends.....

So I was listening to Radio One (94.3 FM) in the car one evening,
Male RJ.
Topic: Contest-type. Listeners (People?) had to call and say....

"Whenever I see you, I just want to pick my nose."

'Pick My Nose'! I swear I'm not making this up!
They had to say it in the most seductive way.
They had to make it sound sexy.
Oh, and the winner was gonna win some prize I can't remember.
Movie tickets? Restaurant meal?
Okay, I really can't recall!
Must have been a very unappealing prize. 
The callers really really.....tried their best.
I got to listen to about 3 callers.
 The RJ listened - I wondered if he was trying hard not to LOL - and politely gave each of them a pat on their backs for trying their (*cough* orno) best.
"That's really good."
"Oh, wow!"
And then the one memorable tickler.....

Woman: "Whenever I see you *moans*.... I just....mmm....*groans* want to....mmmmm.....pick my nose...... rawwwrrr!"
(In my head: This woman is standing in her kitchen, in black yoga pants, cup of tea in hand, looking out the window, waiting for the vegetable wala to deliver the fresh gobhi/cauliflower. Kids will be back from tuition in 20, and hubby in 60.)

RJ: "That was very good. I'm really turned on right now." 
(In my head: He's bored, thinking about Jack Daniel's.... and before he could stop himself, puts his index finger up one nostril.)

I'm sorry to say that we'll never know what happened next, because I had to get out of the car.

That's life.  
Short Journeys = Interesting/Funny radio programs, New Releases, Top-something/HIT songs.
Long Journeys = MmmBop, Ads, Queen, Ads, Chefs, Education, Kejriwal.


Speaking of nose-related things, whenever I wear sunglasses, my eyes always notice my nose first. Especially in photos. I don't know, even my nostrils seem bigger than usual.

Which means: Sunnies can hide careless in-a-rush eye makeup application, but not a dirty nose. Don't make 'em want to pick your nose! =D

Okay, now I'll stop saying "NOSE" now.

This is an end-of-summer look that I meant to post, like, a week ago......

Sunglasses: Forever 21

Lipstick: I was obsessed with orange-y lippies for a while. Here, I'm wearing Colorbar Definer Lip Liner in Peach Cocktail....
