My relationship with make up is so very young. It is just as young as my daughter; just about 2 years. Yes….true. My daughter too is 2 years. . A little began when I was mid way my preganancy. Many things began after I delivered her and joined back to office after my maternity leave. So, you see, the full bloom relationship of makeup and myself is even smaller than my daughter’s age.
I still remember the day I bumped into WiseShe. I was so shocked that ladies use so many things.
Ok, so when I used to brush my hair everyday to get ready to office, I used to notice I had lost that charm in my skin. So, used the Google search engine to find what I was searching for. And WiseShe popped up. And I kept on moving from one link to other on Wise She, silently watching every one. (I know there are so many silent readers even now here reading my blah blah blah.) Every day I went to office to see WiseShe articles. And couple of months later, the admins blocked WiseShe on the office network. Hell, sick people. L.
I remember the excitement when I had bought my first lipstick from Revlon Colorburst range. It was a little above Rs.500. And can you imagine!!! I just tore off the price sticker pretty soon; if somebody notices I had bought a lipstick so expensive. Yes, nobody in my family supports make up.L. And any/all price tag is considered expensive when it comes to cosmetics.
I began with lipsticks initially. I started with peaches and nude browns. I had slowly reached upto 6 lipsticks; one fine day my mom noticed them in my bag and shocker shocker shocker everywhere.
Mom said “What is this!!! You have so many!!!”
I said “I will show you a blog called WiseShe. And a lady named Anamika, You will never say that 6 lipsticks are too many to have..!!”
Down the line I bought a pink blush. And as for eyeshadows, it is not even a year I started using them. My mom does not know I own eye shadows. He he he. Whenever she visits me. I make sure I lock them up away from her.
Even today my monthly bill of buying make up cosmetics does not even reach rs.1000. Yeah, I sound like I am outdated. Whenever I pay from my hubby’s account; he pops the question “You paid somewhere!! What is it you bought? a paint for eyes!! Or is it a lipstick?? You have so many. When do you finish them!”.
I have seen many of you complaining about your guy being color blind. Now you see, my hubby is product blind.So, no recognition for makeup here too. I can number and name the products I have, such small is my collection. J. Yet I keep mixing and matching them in all possible ways to keep my taste and interest alive.
With every passing day my toddler girl has learnt where and how a lip balm is used, where a pencil takes its place on her mommy, and how does a nail paint bottle look like. She will have a huge story of make up journey when she grows up. She brings a bottle of her shampoo, some how managed to drop it out of the bottle, applied it on her arm….and she yells out “ammaa…champoo click maadi”…she meant “mom….click the shampoo”.
Ok, little lady is getting into her mother’s shoes..
So, here is the list of my most used products.
- NYX lip Pencil in Prune.
- Avon Glimmersticks
- Revlon Touch & Glow Moisturizing Powder.
- NYX Eyeyshadow Trio Copper-Peach-Shimmer.
- Jordana Lipstick Natural.
- Mac Fluidline Ash Voilet.
Mac Ash Voilet is my first and so far only one Mac product in my collection. So, for me to own an Illamasqua or Seohora product is possible only in my next birth, if at all I am born or married to a make up tolerant man. .
If at all I happen to win Illamasqua here on WiseShe, I would definitely ha8ve the feel of Royal Queen of WiseShe. Thanks WiseShe. Thanks Anamika.
