A Limited Stila Haul

A Limited Stila Haul

That huge Boots store somewhere between Oxford street and regents street terrified me even a notch higher than how Sephora makes me feel. They just seem to have all the right stuff, after rummaging through thee ground floor with a full basket, horror-struck me and I just pulled myself out of the damn store but only of course after picking up some makeup too. So as always I wanted to share the makeup I got so here it is…

I have never used anything from Stila before because nothing really stood out or made it to my wish-list. However I always wondered what they’d be like…

I was out of eye liner of any kind at this point so I had made a note to pick a good eyeliner or two during this trip. So i went ahead and picked up 6 eyeliners since. 😛

I started with this pack of 3 eyeliners from Stila. It was one of those ‘I need a new eyeliner and I get 3 for a good price so why not buy them without too much thought’ kind of purchase.

This value set is called ‘morning to moonlight’ and has two smudge stick eyeliners’ in ‘Stingray’ and ‘Lionfish’, and a Stay All Day liquid eyeliner in ‘Intense Black’.
I ended up loving them so much that I wish I had stocked up more(although even Eeyore would know the next time I will run out of eyeliner would at least be after a good 5 years).

Next I also picked up their ‘Stay All Day’ liquid lipstick set in “naturally nude”.

I have never used any of their lipsticks naturally and hadn’t tried many liquid lipsticks too. I taught buying the set would let me experiment them in 3 different shades. I went in for the nude set as opposed to the pink and the red one was since I felt this was just safe and there was more chances of me making use of them. The 3 liquid lipsticks come in the mini-size.

If I am not wrong both these were 2016 holiday sets. I had purchased them when they had first come out in November last year.I purchased each of the above for 18 pounds.  I know limited editions, not available anymore, is an annoying thing to make a post about. However these lipsticks and eyeliners’ are available in full size on the Sephora and Boots website for anyone interested. 🙂

A Drugstore-ish Haul

A Drugstore-ish Haul

img_9228

Happy Ramadan Lovelies! :*

This post is something I’ve been trying to get done for a while now. And by now I mean six freaking months!!! My procrastination levels have crossed too many boundaries and my lack of time management skills is taunting me. However, here I am determined to get this little post done and how.

It is quite hard for me to get across drugstore products from where I live so while strutted around the streets of Tokyo last winter I picked out a few things I found interesting from various drugstores.

Some of these products were totally overpriced for being drugstore and that makes me wonder if they are drugstore in the first place. However, here we go…

BIODERMA Makeup Removing Micelle Solution

This had been on my radar for a while so when I saw it I had to have it. This cost me almost as much MAC makeup remover but it works so much more efficiently so I guess that’s worth it. It’s so easy on the skin and removes makeup without a fuss. Totally loving it.

L.A. SPLASH Glitter Eyeliner in Gold

If it was you, would you not bring her home?? I went through a phase where every look I did had some gold eyeliner in it. I went full on with my creativity with this one and boy did I enjoy it or not! 😀 My only regret is not getting a few more colors. They are just so easy to work with.

BURTS BEES Beewax Lip Balm

I still havent used it but I’ve heard so much about them that I am dying to.

MAYBELLINE Lash Sensational Volum’ Express

I have to admit that the packaging was like half the reason I bought this mascara, the other half being I left my holy grail mascara at home. The brush needs some getting used personally and I am working towards that. Apart from that, it does the job quite well.

MAYBELLINE Age Re-wind Dark Circles Eraser

This one I got all the way from the US. I wanted the concealer but I only managed to get down the highlighter. I really want the concealer but I don’t know any place that ships worldwide. :/

Is any of the above products your favorite? let me know in a comment below, I love to hear from you.

Until next time,

Keep Smiling!Xx

A Mini benefit haul | Testing the Waters

A Mini benefit haul | Testing the Waters

And its time for another haul post. Benefit is another brand that I have been itching to try for the longest time so I decided to go for it. I placed a mini order and I received a few complimentary samples with it that let me have me have a sneak of some of their other products.

The two products at the top of my list was the they’re real! push-up liner and the mascara. I’ve read reviews on these two products that were half positive and half not so positive so I was really not sure if I wanted to risk spending all that money. Read more

A Huge Makeup Revolution Haul!

A Huge Makeup Revolution Haul!

*Warning: Long post – the first two paragraphs’ especially have lots of randomness going on 😉 *

After endless days of teasing you all about a haul post (You have no idea what I am on about? Follow me on Instagram and stay in the loop! 😉 ), it is finally here. Knowing how tired and unproductive I am while fasting I had scheduled my posts ahead of time like a pro (look at me being all organized *pffft*) and had everything planned out for the last few weeks *pats own head* but now I need to make new ones because my efficiency died away eventually. Last week in particular just wasn’t my week, I dropped my iPhone from my bed shattering the screen and my mom keeps asking me why there is hair strands on my screen every time I show her something on it; that’s like rubbing salt on a wound. So while I was sulking away the whole week, there came a package from Makeup Revolution that made everything so much better. IMG_2371 Read more

Birthday Haul Part 1

Birthday Haul Part 1

It was my birthday last month and I have a habit of buying myself something I really want every year. It’s a gift to me from myself because no one knows me as much and what I want as much as I do. However, since I had gone on a road trip and just got home only 2 hours before it was midnight (and my birthday) I was too tired to really go out shopping the next few days. But that didn’t stop me from filling my cart and checking them out while I’m all comfy in my PJs. The packages did take weeks to reach me so that’s why I’m making the post now. Also I have a few more stuff I’m expecting in the mail soon, I’m hoping to make a part 2 for this post once I receive them.

Anyways the haul:

Let me break down the above photo and talk about each product I purchased: Read more

Finally the order I placed at Makeup Geek arrived. Its only been around 2.5 weeks however the wait felt way too long. I’ve been super excited and awaiting for this box to arrive.

I’ve already arranged my makeup into the Z-palette and made swatches of eyeshadow on my wrists. *Please oversee the blabber, this girl is extremely happy and excited 😉 *

So Here’s what I ordered: Read more

Makeup Haul: Chanel, Bobbi Brown and MAC

Makeup Haul: Chanel, Bobbi Brown and MAC

I spent few hours of last friday evening at Takashimaya in Yokohama amidst the branded stores, shoes, bags and of course a floor full of makeup counters. Not too surprisingly I went on a makeup rampage fit to make this Haul post.

On another note, I found myself the perfect Kate spade bag. It was perfect until I went shopping (yes, again!) with my bestie on Saturday and showed her the bag to get her approval. After a series of discussion we concluded it wasn’t perfect for me. 😛

Back to this the topic, I went a bit crazy on makeup at Takashimaya. But I can proudly say at least I bought things I actually need rather than buy random products simply because they fascinate me.

What I bought…
