MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Review.

DSC039551

I love face powders 😀 on a daily basis, I only use a little compact on my face for a fresh look. Forget foundations, I hardly even use TMs or BB creams daily 😛

And in the early months of last year, I got so crazy about compacts that I was hoarding them like crazy 😛

I had heard a lotttt about the MAC MSF and really wanted to try it and to be honest, this is one of the most expensive products I own 😛

But is it worth it? Read on to know…

Hello everyone!

How’re we all today? It’s a beautiful day, no? well, it is for me as it’s my birthday 😛 lol

By the way, did you know that the Google doodle says happy birthday to you on your birthday? I didn’t know and I got freaked out last night when I saw cakes and party stuff as the doodle and just hovered over it and it read Happy Birthday, Poorva! Omg it was scary but nice 🙂

These days all girls want to look their best and simple makeup just helps them achieve the right look. But not everyone can afford high-end makeup, and that shouldn’t discourage anyone as these days there is a plethora of good-quality options out there in the market at various prices!

My favourites – May 2013.

Another monthly favourites post!

This month was a very emotional month! My college farewell took place and it was the last month of college, its kindof hard to accept that college is over! Spent four memorable years here and made amazing friends!

Between all this and my final practicals, project presentation and the extreme heat in Delhi, I hardly used makeup this month and had absolutely no time to try new stuff!

My experience:

I had got this powder way back in February but didn’t use it much then as at that time my skin isn’t so oily. I’ve been using this almost daily since almost 2 months now and I LOVE it ❤

This is better than any other mattifying powder I’ve used, including the Maybelline dream matte powder, which I’ve loved a lot 😀

I’ve even recommended this to so many people, I fear people might start thinking I’m getting paid to promote this powder but seriously I love this one 😀

Another month over! Phew! This was a fun month for me and also a month which has taken a few major decisions of my life. I’ll share them with you once they’re finalized 🙂

I am sorry for not being regular since some time, my laptop was giving me major trouble and it finally crashed on Friday 😦 All my data is in it so can’t post anything right now, thankfully I had already completed this post and it was in the drafts to be posted at the end of the month!

I had a lotttt of favourites this month, as you can see!

TBS & MAC Haul and some rambling!

DSC01184

I hauled, way too early in this month, no? Sigh!

My best friend and I were just hanging out when this haul happened 😛

I’ll come straight to the stuff I bought!

DSC01183

The Body Shop Banana Shampoo & Conditioner. I’m way too addicted to TBS now and I’ve even got my mom and sis addicted! They had sniffed at these beauties last time and were hooked, especially my sis who really likes bananas, I don’t though, but still loved the fragrance of these! And these are more natural than other stuff in the market so finally decided these over L’occitane which is way too expensive 🙂

These were on my wishlist here.

Then we were just randomly checking out MAC when I got the MSF Natural tried on my face and lovveeedddd it 😛 If you follow me on twitter, you must have read last night’s tweet ; I have been seriously obsessed with MSF since some days! And there in the store I couldn’t resist myself! So, I’m finally the very proud owner of MAC Mineralized SkinFinish Natural – Medium. You can’t imagine the feeling now that I have it !!!!!!

DSC01182

I was scared my mom will kill me when I got home, but I first asked her does she notice anything different about my face, and she said it’s looking nice, it’s looking very smooth! And then I told her what I bought and she was like “Acha hai! It’s looking nice, but don’t waste it! ” yessss 😀 No scolding even 😛

So, that’s my entire haul.

And I observed that usually I buy lots of small small stuff which makes me feel super guilty and today I bought some big stuff and both overall would cost same na, so now I’m done with this month’s makeup shopping. Now, will shop only for my college farewell, which is in the last week of April.

What big makeup splurges have you made recently? Loving them or regretting? 😀 Do share in the comments below:)

My February haul.

DSC01113

I have been a good girl these 2 months and limited my expenditure on makeup. Yayy!!! I had not put a ban on myself but rather decided to make wise purchases such that I don’t waste money and only buy stuff that I’ll definitely use! And more or less, I have obeyed this decision well.

Earlier I was literally hoarding the same kindof stuff, read – eyeliners and kajals and felt super guilty – oh! Another new liner!! Now, I am trying new things other than eyeliners and have no guilt whatsoever. I have ventured into blushes just this year and loving them. Also, I am liking face makeup more than eye makeup – I am seriously in love with compacts 😀 I don’t use foundation or primer and recently I am exploring building coverage with powder and loving the results!
