Most Used Beauty Products

Yesterday, I had an attack of short attention span (the infamous Gemini vice). I was going to blog about something.... then I decided on something else....then something else.... it was amazing how my mind went from China to Turkey in minutes. I wanted to pull my hair, coz I couldn't settle on a topic, yet I was editing photos & writing like a maniac. Then late at night, I ended up making this collage instead- far far away from China & Turkey.

These are some of my Most Used Products. I've repurchased some & I'm begging a few not to leave me!



  • Most Used Body Crème ~ The Body Shop Body Butter Duo. 2-in-1 body butter- one thick, one thin. I loved combining them for that perfect consistency suited for my skin. Reviewed Sweet Pea & Macadamia here. Both finished! Price: Rs.880.
  • Most Used Lip Gloss ~ Maybelline Color Sensational Touch Of Toffee Lip Gloss. I can't get enough of this! I'm looking for a lipstick exactly like it. Review here. Price: Rs.250.
  • Most Used Perfume ~ YSL Baby Doll Perfume. An empty bottle of this sits pretty in my closet. I'm waiting for the right moment when I can justify getting a second bottle.... or somebody to gift it to me. Anyone? ;) Price: Rs.2200-3300
  • Most Used Blush ~ MAC Fleur Power. If I had to recommend 1 blush by MAC, this would be it. It goes with everything, which is why I reach for it almost every time. Review & Swatch herePrice: Rs.1150
  • Most Used Bronzer ~ The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder. I use Shade 02 Fair Matte, which is the subtlest bronzer I have. Shown here, Review herePrice: Rs.995.
  • Most Used Lipstick ~ MAC Patisserie. My favorite nude MAC lipstick. Review herePrice: Rs.990.
  • Most Used Tinted Lip Balm ~ Maybelline Lip Smooth Color & Care. I can't even keep count of how many of these I've used! Yes, I've used all the flavors & I've used up most of them! Price: Rs.99.
  • Most Used Eyeshadow Primer ~ Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I can't live without this! My favorite eyeshadow primer. Price: $18.00 (Approx. Rs.1000)
  • Most Used Eye Pencil ~ Lakmé Nine To Five Kohl Ultimate. This is very gentle on my eyes, which is why I love it. It's gotten quite short now, almost time to get another one. Review herePrice: Rs.650.
  • Most Used Foundation ~ Make Up For Ever HD Foundation. I'm afraid to pump it & find out it's finished! But this is one of the foundations I'd buy again. I wear Shade #120 Soft Sand. Reviewed it here, but bad swatches =\. Price: $42.00 (Rs.2340)

Hope you liked this one. I'd love to know your most used products too!

  4. China & Turkey- awesome post. totally loved it. I use a lot of natural products from Himalaya and Body Shop range primarily. For Cosmetics I tend to steer towards Maybelline as they are affordable.

    2. as in does maybelline make unscented lipbalms as well.. if so pls recommend. i did mix it with vaseline and the fragrance was better. but it gets tedious to do it. however shall try doing this till i finish the current balm up.

  13. God bless maybelline lip glosses - though I think I like their new range of lip color bloom (mentioned by the commenter above me) as much. Perfect for the days I want a little color on my lips, but do not want to use a lipstick!

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! :)
