Haul Ahoy !!!
Hellooooo wiseshessssss!!! Wasssuuup?! Sorry…am literally screaming with excitement since I hauled…yeah baby yeah I know this is really dumb compared to Zee n Ana’s mammoth hauls…but it’s my 1sssst haul post . I spent 2 weeks at my mom’s place where one week was spent in bed (I was ill ) and the other shoppinnnnng!! Before you think I’m some maniac, let me tell you I’m a very careful shopper: nerd:. I think twice…no, several times before I buy anything and always go armed with a list that’s been revised and re-revised and re-re-revised (if there’s ever such a word! ). I stick to my list as religiously as I can and once in a while I indulge in an impulse buy. I live in a place where even Lakme isn’t available! So I rely on my trip to Chennai to buy all that I want. Enough said…time to feast your eyes!!
I love Dove! Heyy…that rhymes! Never mind. It really does make a difference whatever your skin/hair type. I got this kit which has a shampoo, soap bar and face wash in a silver zipper pouch. Okay, this is between you and me ….I actually got this just for the pouch Sssshhh. What?? It’s very handy OK….plus I travel a lot and I really need it I bought another bottle of shampoo (I live in like 3 houses and the more bottles the better) and I got a conditioner free. Isn’t the mini tube cute? Perfect for travelling! Also bought Dove Go Fresh Energise cream bar soap.
I’d gone to The Body Shop to buy 2 tubs of their Love Etc. cream perfume that comes in a heart-shaped tin. I ended up buying none! They had testers (thank God for that!!) and the fragrance was like umm…cardboard!! Yep…it was so blah that they really shouldn’t call it a perfume. So instead, I bought the4-step smoky eyes palette, rainforest moisture shampoo (travel size) and a foundation brush. The brush is not there in the picturess since I left it at my mom’s place.
I’ve been meaning to try Lakme Absolute Wet and Dry Compact ever since it was released and I finally bought it . The Lip Last lipstick that comes in a pen form was also on my list. But the SA was struggling to get the product out of the pen and was furiously clicking away in vain. That’s when I remembered that I’d read on a few blogs that the pen mechanism is faulty and fails to dispense product most of the time. When she finally managed to get some product out, she swatched it on my hand. I found the swatch looking very dehydrated and dull. So I skipped. Next on my list was a blush (Yes Zee, your million blush posts were my inspiration). I discovered a counter of a brand called Anna Andre and the SA told me that it was venture by Yardley of London. Sounded good, and it was a chance for me to try a new brand, so I bought one blush to test it out.
I’ve been on the look-out for a nice muted Coral lipstick that my skintone can carry off and my search ended with Chambor Truly Lasting Lipstick in Truly Sunset. I can’t wait to review it for you guys! I got these super tiny bottles of liquid cleansing foam free with my purchase.
Anything with images of strawberries is too hard for me to resist and I picked up Hip Hop Strawberry face Scrub. I initially didn’t want to add the mouthwash in this post but it’s so amazingly refreshing that I had to share it with you guys. Have u tried Colgate Plax Fresh Tea Mouthwash?
Remember my watermelon nail art tutorial? Remember how I promised to buy nail art tools before my next tutorial? I keep my promises and here’s proof of that I got a set of nail art brushes and 2 nail art pens: 1 black and 1 white. Since I couldn’t find any nail art stuff at my place, I asked my sister to pick these up for me and she got them from the much-raved-about Beauty Center in Khar, Mumbai. Can’t wait to visit that place! I also bought Lakme Fast&Fabulous nailcolor in Red for a nail art that’s coming up.
These are just some basic black hair accessories I picked up from Health&Glow.
I saw this cute rose-shaped loofah at a store and it was sooo hard to pick just one since they had it in such a lovely range of colours. I was torn between red and pink and I finally bought pink. Also got 2 cute combs, one for my handbag and the other for my sis-in-law The bottom-portion of the loofah has lovely green felt. The two combs open up to reveal a handy mirror.
Sooooo….what did u guys think?? Was this a lame haul totally not worth posting? Was it at least fun to just gaze at the pictures? I mean, who doesn’t like pictures, right? Do let me know your honest comments and do also mention the products that you’d like to see a review on
