Jewelry Haul ~ Accessorize & Primark (Boxing Day Sales)

These are all the jewelry I got on Boxing Day. If you're not familiar with this day, it falls on the 26th of December, and most stores in the UK (and a few other countries) put up major sales for some reason. Don't ask me why it's called 'Boxing Day'. I read about it on Wiki, but I don't remember... maybe I didn't even understand. 
Anyways! I'm very happy with my haul, especially Accessorize because I find it more expensive in the UK & I'd been waiting for the sale for months!
Accessorize Jewelry: All 50% off
  • Carved Rose & Leaf Ring ~  £2 (Rs.177)
  • Gold Earrings ~ £3 (Rs.265)
  • 3 sets of gold hoops ~ £2.50 (Rs.220). 
  • Gold Chain Hair Bando ~  £4 (Rs.354)

Maybelline Superstay 14HR Lipsticks Review & Swatches

I've already given you a preview of Maybelline Superstay 14HR Lipsticks, so you can click here to see more pics. I have 2 shades: Infinitely Fuchsia & Stay With Me Coral, and will talk about them separately here.
Finish: Semi-matte & opaque with some sheen. They are not velvety matte (like MAC or Colorbar mattes). I'd say they feel kind of sticky- used sellotape sticky. For a smooth application, you have to avoid locking your lips in between. It's one of those high maintenance lipsticks.
14 hours, really? Not really. They last, but the texture start to crack like candle wax and begin to look flaky where your lips meet, after eating & drinking. Then it's uneven city. Maybe they'll last that long only on the outer edges =D
Fragranced? Yes. They smell of cherries.... maybe even pineapple pastry. I love.
Packaging: Cute. Young. Color coordinated- every shade has its own individual matching casing.
Infinitely Fuchsia 160: I'm so in love with this vibrant fuchsia color. If you're looking for a true blue-based fuchsia, this might be up your street. You can see how intense & opaque it is, and that's what I like best about it. It is more intense & deeper than Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense #32 Satin Fuchsia
