Back To MAC = FREE Lipsticks!


I'm sure you already know this. Take back 6 empty (or just old & useless) containers to MAC and get 1 Lipstick from the permanent line absolutely FREE!

You can take back anything with Back 2 MAC written on the box. I took 13 (just in case), and brought back 1 (the lipstick) for the next exchange.

My Pile: Cleanse Off Oil, Fix+ Spray, Cream Colour Base x 2, Studio Finish Concealer, Fluidline, Lipstick (Patisserie), Lipglasses, Brow Set.

I got 2 lipsticks. TWO! Oh. the joy! Especially since I'm on a Lipstick Buying Ban. Yes, I've been a good girl, since the last time I had to cheat =D


I picked Lady Danger & Relentlessly Red.

 Yay! High 5 to all the clever ladies who guessed correctly on Facebook & Instagram! =)

5 The Body Shop Favorites

Many years ago, I used to play Scrabble online. Sometimes my opponents & I would end up chatting a bit while playing - Where are you from....What do you do.... general stuff. And one day when I was playing with a female opponent.....
Opponent: I work in Body Shop.

Me: Oh, I loooove Body Shop! =)

Opponent:  =)   

Me: "So what are your favorite Body Shop products?"

Opponent: I meant Auto Body Shop =D

Me: Oh! LOL! =D

Awkward! We stopped chatting all through the game. I don't remember who won that game, though. But let's all assume I did ;p =D

So that's a lil' Body Shop story, and now I'll tell you about the 5 The Body Shop products that I've been loving lately.....

Maxi Dress Outfit & Maternity Shoot ~ For Bubbles....

 
Bubbles, you're so heavy!
It makes me want to bend on all fours to get you off my spine....
Like a cat - MEOW!
Okay, we should do a "Maternity Shoot"
I dress up and pose and show off how big we've gotten,
You try not to headbutt my bladder like you want to evict it.
Hmm....How.....Where?
Most people seem to go to serene forest-type places....
with trees and daisies and magical-looking sun rays 
that kiss their flower headbands delicately.
And they hire pro photographers.
No, we aren't 'most people'.
No, we are not going to a forest.
You & I will do low-budget DIY shoot.
But, on the bright side.....
We'll get to wear high heels.....

Colorbar Just Smoky Kajal: Just Black, Just Green

'This long-lasting, multi-tasking eye pencil gives you 3-in-1 benefits of an Eyeliner, Kajal and an Eye Shadow. It helps you to achieve the mysterious smoky-eyed look which will last for up to 12 hours. It comes with a built-in smudger that is as soft as a cushion which can be used to demystify the art of smoky eyes. The intense color and matte texture of the pencil adds definition and drama to your eyes. It has waterproof property and does not transfer.' ~ Colorbar.
You know how sometimes you tightline your upper lash line, but you don't want it to transfer to your waterline below? Maybe you want to use a white/nude pencil on that area, or you just want to leave it bare. It used to be almost impossible with other kajals and most kohls.....until now. Colorbar Just Smoky Kajal dries in seconds and sets into a rubber-like finish, which is waterproof & transfer-proof.
I got 2 out of 5 shades that were launched:

Just Black 001: Intense black. Let's call it Lakmé Kohl Ultimate's competition. If you want a slightly more transfer-proof pencil, I guess you could pick this one instead.

Just Green 003: A shimmery forest green, which would make a really nice festive/fall liner.
