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.

MAC The Simpsons Collection Photos & Swatches

I'll admit, I'm not much of a Simpsons fan. I found them cute and all, but I never really watched the series. Then I met someone who's hooked to the show - my Mr.CZ. Boy, is he obsessed! Yes, all the DVDs & figurines in the photos are his. I remember he'd start laughing, and tell me about something funny Homer did/said ("Mmm....bacon.")
Even though I would never skip this collection, I'd say he wanted me have it more than I did. So, in a way, they're for him. Which is weird to say because we are not talking to each other right now.... haha! ;p

Anyways, I'll dedicate this post to him.....and all you other Simpsons fans! Hope you'll like the fun pictures, I really enjoyed clicking them. Cartoon makeup collections are so FUN!  =D
On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, M·A·C honours the one, the only, THE SIMPSONS. We are celebrating the country’s favourite animated family and its beloved matriarch Marge with a vibrant colour collection that screams That Trillion Dollar Look. Our classic formulas and finishes you love are to blue dye for with an animated twist. All in limited-edition packaging that can only be described in one word: Eeeeexcellent. ~ MAC.

Cushioned Thong Sandals


I find closed ballet flats too stuffy now that my feet are a-l-w-a-y-s hot, so I have started wearing these thong sandals. They are really comfortable because of those cushioned circle designs.

I got these from the same store in Lajpat Nagar Market - Stelatoes - for around Rs.795. The same time I got the grey pair shown here. If I remember correctly, they were available in other colors as well.

Just Arrived ~ MAC The Simpsons Collection


All the way from USA.

Because....well..... I don't trust MAC India & I didn't want to risk missing out on this CUTE collection =D 

We MAC-holics here are tired of seeing 'SOLD OUT' on LE products most of the time - even on the launch day! Some have come to think that maybe....maybe....they only bring the display of Limited Edition Collections to India just for advertisement. I can't say for sure, coz I haven't been here for some time. Let's see what happens with this collection, shall we? =)

Penciled Pink Pout


One day, I wore a deep fuchsia pink dress.
I applied MAC Flat Out Fabulous Lipstick.
Very matchy-matchy!
I love when my lips match my dress or top.
Hubby & I left our hotel room. Yes, this was that time we were on our Babymoon.
We decided to eat lunch first before going shopping.
Chinese. Soupy noodles. Fried Rice. Chilli Chicken.
Waiting-for-the-check time was lipstick touch-up time.
I didn't need a mirror to tell me I had only a fuchsia pink outline on my lips.
I blotted and gently wiped off the edges. 
I reached into my handbag, and.....
AND.....
Oh My Gah! I'd forgotten to toss MAC Flat Out Fabulous into my handbag!
Not only that, there was absolutely no lip product in my bag.
Not even a lip balm (or a Fox's raspberry candy I could rub my lips with!) It's what usually happens when you change handbags!
I freaked a little.
"It's like an ensemble!", I told hubby who didn't see what the big deal was.
"And I thought you're not supposed to buy any lipsticks.", he added.
"I know, but....this is an exception!"
{Or.... I could leave my lips bare and a lil stained like this???.....
Please, woman! It looks like you have some kind of rash!}
We left the restaurant, went down the escalator.....
and we were standing in front of Colorbar.
I told the SA that I wanted a lippie shade that's exactly like the dress I was wearing.

I Transform Into Cersei Lannister ~ GAME OF THRONES

"When you play the Game Of Thrones. you win or you die.
There is no middle ground."

Cersei Lannister: A character created by George R.R. Martin in his books A Song Of Fire And Ice, which has been adapted into one of the most popular tv shows, GAME OF THRONES. Cersei has a twin brother, Jaime Lannister, with whom she had been in an incestuous relationship since they were adolescents. They both have a younger brother, Tyrion Lannister (the little man up there & my favorite character in the show), whom Cersei loathes because their mother died while giving birth to him.
