Five Friday Favorites #12

DSC00105-1

I have missed you guys so much and it has been so long I shared my favorites with you all!

So here are my current favorites –

The Body Shop Camomile cleansing butter – this is such a gem of a product! I love it! I have even recommended it to so many of my friends. It cleans skin so perfectly and leaves it feeling soft and hydrated!

MAC retro matte Relentlessly red – my favorite bright lipstick at the moment. It is a perfect mix of red and pink and I love how it brightens up my face. I will definitely do a whole post on this.

Lancome kohl eyeliner – I am such a huge kajal collector! I keep trying new eyeliners every time I see something which promises to last long on my waterline. This one was a very random purchase and it is honestly, one of the best eyeliners I have used on my waterline.

La roche posay effaclar duo – this has been doing an amazing job at keeping my skin balanced and healthy. Highly recommended. This tube is running out fast and me is sad !

Victoria’s Secret xo Victoria rollerball – I was looking for a new fresh scent and did not feel committed enough to buy a full bottle, so I bought a handful of such rollerballs and this one is my current favorite.  It is a gorgeous fresh and vibrant scent, with undertones of roses and even vanilla.

I will try to do individual reviews too and link them here.

What are your current favorites? Do share with me in the comments below!

Happy weekend!

Love you guys,

Victoria’s Secret Sports Bra Experience |Influenster VoxBox Review.

DSC04594c

Hey everyone!

Many of you would have heard about Influenster. It’s a website, which anyone can join, blogger or non-blogger. There you can write reviews of products and you get points for those. And you can sign up for getting an Influenster VoxBox. A VoxBox is a surprise box with free products. Absolutely free! Its not obligatory to review those products but if you do, then you get more points and a contest entry and that’s useful for getting more VoxBoxes in the future! (But I’m super late and I don’t think I’ll be getting any points now but still I want to share my experience with you guys :D)

Current wishlist | Tiny haul.

 I sooooooo badly want to buy a few things that are on my wishlist since quite some time! But I’ve done my share of shopping of late and other expenses aren’t allowing me to splurge at the moment!

So these are just a few things I really really want to buy soon !!!

Untitled12

Victoria’s Secret PINK collection, especially their body mists and lotions. I’ve tried the regular range at Victoria’s Secret and they have such a huge range that I’ve never come around to trying stuff by their range PINK. I really want to try their fragrances! They mostly have some offer of buy 3 for $30 going on and plus, their lotions are sold in these hugeee pump bottles of 500ml 😀 so, they’re not too expensive!

Fossil Georgia rose gold watch – I saw it at Macys on thanksgiving and I really really wanted it but I had already bought one watch in the sale so I had to control myself. Even when I went to India, I saw this watch at Shoppers Stop and aahhhh I want itttttttt!!!!! There’s another version available with a mint green leather strap that looks lovely as well!

I guess these are the only major things on my list at the moment!

And now for my tinyyyy haul 😀

I’ve been thinking of trying some particular TBS products since a long time and TBS had lots of discounts currently so I ordered a few stuff!

I have their compact cream foundation version but I hardly use it as I don’t wear foundation and I really wanted to try this powder version so I bought this Extra Virgin Minerals Loose Powder. Guess how much I got this for? 😛

I bought it for $5!!!! Yes 😀 i.e.approx. Rs.300! 🙂

Then I bought the Seaweed starter kit, I really wanted to try this one as I’ve heard it’s really good! Will be using it properly in summers! After discount it came to approx. $12.

And I wanted to use the Banana range again as I have used it previously in india but couldn’t get it here. The conditioner was out of stock but I bought the shampoo. I got it for approx. $3.

To avail free shipping I bought these 2 trial packs – Vitamin C microdermabrasion and Seaweed iconic clay mask. For $1 each. Very excited to try the Vitamin c one 😀

So, that’s it! Just some essentials and random stuff coz they were all at such good prices 😀

I also bought black heels and mint green(love love) canvas shoes from Forever 21 last week

And my first lingerie from Victoria’s Secret. Eeeee!!! And that’s also mint green and pink! Despite the season or fashion trends, mint green is just not leaving my mind!

P.S.sorry for the gloomy pictures 😦

Five Friday Favorites #6

Hey everyone!

As you all know by now, I’m at my home in India right now for vacations. Ofcourse I haven’t got all my bath, body and makeup stuff.

So the products I’ve been using are either ones I’ve bought here or the ones I had left at home or what I’ve got for my sister from the US or the ones my sister bought when I wasn’t here. And my favorites too are from those products!

Thanksgiving/November big haul!

Hey everyone!

I told you all last week that I’ll show you my November haul soon so here I am! I had not bought a single thing whole of September and October except few essentials for this weather and so I hauled quite a lot of stuff this month.

The sales here during thanksgiving are just huge! I’d heard about the sale season but never knew the extent of the discounts! And most brands start sales at the beginning of number itself!

QUICK REVIEW: Victoria’s Secret Body Mist – Pure Seduction.

According to their website – A flirty, floral fragrance. Entice in Pure Seduction, a passionate romance of succulent red plum and sweet freesia. Experience the luxury of fragrance. Refreshing formula is infused with conditioning aloe vera and calming chamomile. Spray on for a sexy touch of scent. It retails for $12.

You all know how bad I am at describing scents. Plus I don’t know how perfumes/ body mists are supposed to be reviewed. Hence, I am writing just a quick review for this, telling you all how this has fared with me. I got this in my December vellvette box. I’ve been wearing this body mist all the time since then. I have heard a lot about Victoria’s Secret fragrances but have never used one myself. I have only used their body lotion, which didn’t impress me. But with this body mist, I am very impressed. 🙂

My experience:

I got this in my October vellvette box here. It’s a sample sized product – of 60ml.

I had never tried anything from Victoria’s Secret before this and I really wanted to. I had heard so much about their amazing scents. But availability of VS products is very difficult here in India, and so I never got a chance. Just a week before my October Vellvette box was delivered to me, I got to know about the Sale on Purplle.com on VS and B&BW products. And so I ordered a body lotion from their sale. And just next week I got one in my vellvette box. But after using it for just 1 day, I hurried to cancel my order with Purplle.com. Read on to know why!
