March Haul ~ MAC Posh Paradise & Iris Apfel, Colorbar, Aldo, ZARA

Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was "legendary-wait for it-dary!" Okay, that was only me copying Randy from HIMYM's funniest episode & my favorite till date. I don't know why it's on my mind at this moment. My weekend was good, but I wouldn't call it Barney Stinson's catch phrase. 
So on Saturday, I went shopping for 2 things- a ZARA jacket & a MAC Paint Pot, but I ended up buying....well, a few more good shhtuff. 
MAC:
  • Genuine Treasure Paint Pot from Posh Paradise Collection, Rs.1350 ~ Paint Pot with shimmer...yum! The moment I saw it, I knew it'd be sinful not to own it. I'm so excited to try it out! Will review it in a few days. In case you missed, reviews of other Mac Paint Pots- Constructivist here & Painterly here
  • Party Parrot Lipstick (Matte) from Iris Apfel Collection, Rs.990 ~ I don't have any lipstick like that, the color is so unique. It might be similar to Malaika's lipstick in Cosmopolitan here.
Aldo: I had no intention of buying anything when I went in, but....
  • Melso Necklace, Rs.600 ~ Impulse buy, but I sort of needed a plain gold chunky necklace.
  • Butterfly Drop Earrings, Rs.500 ~ How cute are those fluttery wings?! Yes, I do realize that I buy a lot of butterfly jewelry =D
Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipsticks in Thrilling Pink & Obsessed Orange, Rs.225 each. I was gonna get only Obsessed Orange to show you guys another orange lippie, after the Happy Orange Products post, but Thrilling Pink looked so pretty I couldn't resist, plus it looks like a dupe for Maybelline Color Sensational Pink Please
Thrilling Pink, Obsessed Orange

Zara: Dusty Pink Quilted Leather Jacket, Rs.4790 - I had seen it before I went to Mumbai for LFW, so it isn't an impulse buy. I'm so happy I got it in XS, which fits me much better than S. I know it's the wrong time to buy a pricey item I won't get to wear for another 8-9 months, but I couldn't risk waiting till later/SALE season to get it, coz I know XS will be gone and....it's mine! I thought I'd seen a black one in this style as well, and was contemplating getting both, but clearly I was hallucinating. 

So that haul was the highlight of my weekend. If you would like me to review & swatch anything first, do let me know.

Happy last week of March, everyone. Time really flies. Soon it'll be Christmas again :)

  2. Do lipsticks have expiry? I take my own sweet time using them and never have the heart to throw them away.

    1. OMG me too! I guess they do, but if nobody else but u use them, I guess they don't "expire" very fast. I usually don't feel like using them anymore after 3 years or so

    And that's a divine haul you have there. Luxe.
    I think you should do more OOTDs, you have a killer dress-sense.
    As they say, in for a penny, in for a pound! :)

    Love.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
