Long time no see! And long time no haul. Lols. Well, long time no blog actually. But I am back, with a new feature called Hashtag Haul, which came about to be as an attempt to strengthen my resolve to blog more frequently. I rarely do haul posts, but I will do these more often, even really small ones as collective posts of stuff I've acquired that could be of your interest. Let me know how you feel about that! So anyways, lets get started shall we?
This uber cute Estee Lauder bag of goodies came into my possession thanks to lovely, dearest Aunt. I have yet to try out the BB cream but Modern Muse smells divine and the eye shadows inside the compact are great not to mention how crazy colorful and fantastic this looks.
Some things I hauled off a mix of Facebook pages, The Instain blush in Toile by theBalm is actually quite an old purchase now, but I thought I should mention it since it was my first buy from Ideal Additions and only Rs/-1700 during the one of crazy sales theBalm has. Such a fantastic deal and they've kept up with their affordable prices because I later got the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hr Blush from them also in the shade Classic (which is unfortunately limited edition and now unavailable online but you might still be able to find it at a Facebook page if you're very lucky), for Rs/-899! The uber cute, mini coffret Giorgio Armani Si and Tory Burch perfumes are from Hash for Rs/-1200 and Rs/-1400 respectively. Both pages only deal with bank transfer and easy paisa as mode of payment, but with prices that good, I think it's worth the hassle!
Next up is my tiny, winy Sephora order. I had been wanting the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ($29) for the longest time, and around my birthday month, I decided to make a small order so I could also take advantage of the Beauty Insider birthday gift so along with the concealer in the shade Custard, I got the travel sized Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter in the shade Moonstone ($19) and got two generously sample sized NARS lip pencils, Cruella- Velvet Matte (which I gave to my mommy dearest who also had her birthday two days from mine) and Rikugien - Satin which I kept for myself!
And finally, lippies I picked up randomly while browsing makeup at local stores. The Bourjois Velvet Edition liquid lipsticks look fantastic don't they, so I just had to pick one up for myself. I got No.07 called Nude-ist off the Alfatah Bourjois kiosk for Rs/-1195 I believe, but the prices have now been hiked up to Rs/-1250-1350 I think. Not sure. Also from Alfatah, I couldn't resist the MAC Lipstick in Barbecue (LE, unfortunately) from the Ruben Toledo collection. I have been a huge fan of his illustrations so my life wouldn't have been the same if I passed up on this bad boy. And finally, liquid lipsticks from Glamourous Face USA, this rather strange brand that pops up every now and then in completely random makeup stores. After swatching about 20 of these, I could already spot some potential dupes of my favorite MAC lipsticks but I stayed away from those and instead picked up two colors that were new to me, a stunning terracotta neutral and a deep raspberry. I will review these soon with details of numbers/names because these are extremely affordable at just Rs/-245 and could give some of the higher end liquid lipsticks a run for their money!
And that is all for this Hashtag Haul, let me know what you've hauling recently! I'd love to know! :)
