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 😀

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!
