I always get weird looks from the counter people at Lifestyle when I'm buying makeup. I don't know why. Maybe I appear too eager, maybe I walk from counter to counter a bit too crazily - sometimes back & forth to "compare", maybe I look too flustered, maybe I take too long to decide which shade I want, maybe I move to another counter while they are bent over those bottom cabinets looking for a product I asked for (they come back up & hey, where'd she go?!) maybe I ask "New launch? New Launch?" like a vendor in a train - "Bhel puri? Bhel puri?"
Okay, okay, I'll control myself next time. Before I set foot in the beauty floor, I'll coach myself first:
"Be cool. Breathe. Neutral facial expression. Walk graciously. Duchess Of Cambridge....."
First counter - Maybelline!
The Magnum Barbie Mascara ~ This is similar to The Falsies Mascar, but with a slightly more slender brush & the formula is more packed with fibres. First Impression: Could clump & smudge easily, but if you can handle that like a meticulous woman, false lash kind of volume & length!
Color Sensational 3D Eyeshadow Palette in Rose Quartz Pink ~ A little palette of 5 eyeshadows, in which there is a top coat shimmer eyeshadow. Available in 4 shades.
Color Show Big Apple Reds Nail Paints ~ A collection of 4 red shades. I picked up R2 Big Apple Red.
Fit Me Concealer in #20 Sand ~ This is a repurchase. I'd got the first one in the same shade from UK, and they are both the same.
Color Show 3D Eyeshadow Palette in Rose Quartz Pink
Colorbar All-Day Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick in Dream ~ Matte black. Would make a good smoky eye makeup base.
Chambor Orosa Sculpting Eye Shadow in Rose Smoke ~ A rose gold kind of shade.
These two shadow sticks are so similar! Packaging looks the same & they both have sharpeners at the end. Same manufacturer, perhaps?
Chambor Extreme Wear Transferproof Liquid Lipstick in #403 ~ The color looks off in the pic, but it is a fuchsia pink, quite similar to MAC Flat Out Fabulous. Not sure how I feel about this yet, so let's see after a a few more wears. Also, I'm a bit confused, because I thought I swatched & picked a brighter pink shade!
L'Oreal Color Riche Nail Polish in #408 Exquisite Scarlet ~ Since I adore another shade from this range, Boudoir Rose,
And then the drawer organizers...
The big ones: Rs.230 each
The medium ones: Rs.230 each
The small ones (on the far right): Pack of 3 for Rs.280. These can be joined.
All from Lifestyle Home Centre.
I've decided to keep my dressing table top empty from now on, and keep all the products I use regularly in these organizers, which will be kept inside the top drawer. Ziizayne now grabs things, yes, but mainly because I tend to over-clutter. Oh, you should see the state it's in right now ;p
Let's see if I can be done with that and maybe sneak in a photo for you all to see during the weekend.
Let's see! =D
But before that, I will show you something cool I discovered!
