My Birthday Haul and Makeup

April is one of those favorite months in my book, where I could just think of nothing and go with the flow.
I have nothing else much to do, since I am always stuck with exams in April.
And fortunately or unfortunately, I had an exam on my Birthday as well. sigh.
So the celebration winded up at midnight, and I went back to burn the oil, studying. And I just experimented with my Morning Makeup attending my Cheeks most!
And That was the only special thing about my day. :P

For Face:
Maybelline Dream Liquid Foundation in Medium Beige.
Maybelline Clear Glow Powder

For Cheeks:
Sleek Flamingo

For Eyes: 
A Gold eyeshadow from MUA Heaven and Earth
Maybelline Drama Gel eyeliner
MUA Eyeshadow Primer

Lakme Lip love conditioner in Hottie on Lips.

The colors may look less vibrant with the picture clicked in bright light.

I returned home and slept at stretch for next 10 hours, like a baby.

But then I celebrated it a few days ago by splurging and shopping whole day out with my BFF & Sister.
Here what I gifted myself ;)

The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Mist, Shower Gel and Body Lotion India

Lotus Herbals Sunblock SPF 90, The Body Shop Tea Tree Blotting Paper and Cleansing Wipes, Nivea Fruity Shine Cherry, The Body Shop Love Etc India

The Sexiest EDT I ever smelt ;)

Okay The Body Shop Tea Tree Wet Tissues were impulse buy! Sheer waste of money. That is one regret! phew.

My Kryolan and Sleek Haul.

Where to buy Kryolan Makeup in India, Mumbai

In the quest of my Cherry Culture Package, I made run(s) to Custom office, which turned in vain.
And then I wanted to go to Kryolan City on Waterfield road, out of impulse. I bought my First Kryolan Blush. And I wanted the Ikonic Gel Pencils as well.

My long lost Sleek package returns home  and then I spot and lay my hands on TRESseme Keratese Shampoo at Supermarket and my HG Facepack with Free Scrub, I grabbed two tubes already. What can I even plead for?
My mom just renamed me, Greedy. No kidding. She did.

Let the Pictures do all the talking.

Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Review

Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Review
Garnier BB cream, it is!

Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Review India
Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Review Dewy Finish BB Cream

I am elated for more reasons I wish to mention. And then finding the dewy, glowy finish at the day's end. I picked it back when it was launched, hence the small tube, but boy! I need that 40ml tube soon, sooner!

Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Review

What I l♥ve about Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream:

♥ The Texture, for dewy finish and No patchiness, No blending. I just use this one as moisturizer.
♥ No Greasiness. My skin is Normal/Combination.
♥ My cream blush blends like magic without disturbing the BB cream.
♥ No Breakouts! & SPF 24.
♥ Stays on for quite 5 hours.

What I am uneasy with:

I hate the long name though.

It does not provide coverage, I still like it. I am No Foundation - Concealer Person, so BB creams are for me.
I love it more because I got compliments. Doesn't that makes our day?

I like this more than Maybelline BB cream and MUA BB cream, perhaps.

For the love of Lip salves: Carmex and Chapstick in India!

Yes, Salves since I prefer them over tinted ones.

I am crazier than before and even more when I saw Carmex and Chapstick on an E-Commerce store.
So You want Carmex and Chapstick too?

Bombay Beauty Store, it is.

So here's what all I got.

Carmex Original Formula Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm Chapstick Moisturizer, Where to buy Carmex and Chapstick in India

Carmex Original Formula
Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm
Chapstick Moisturizer

199 INR each.

I was too skeptic about paying online, since I had never shopped with them before. But then the experience turned out quite good.
I ordered on 27th December 2012 and recieved this morning. So I'm happy as long as the products are intact. The tubes and jar were perfectly sealed. =)
Chapstick is on my Lips right now *Big Grin*

Okay, so I am trying flavoured ones next. :D

P.S. I was not paid or commissioned to do this. This post is for all the Carmex and Chapstick lovers around :)
