Tiny MAC Purchases and Rants...

 

My Tiny MAC Purchases & ISLM Rants



It has been raining here in Pune (and Mumbai) non stop since a month now and we have been left pining for the sun... I have found an escape route... I plan on traveling to Bangalore just for some sun and get back to the daily, rainy grind of Pune all soaked up... Just the thought cheers me up and I am getting this queer urge to start humming Soak Up The Sun by Sheryl Crow ♪♪♫...

But no amount of rain can stop best friends from meeting up and catching up on gossip and some well deserved shopping... Thus this Sunday saw the three of us, two besties (P & K) and me meet up for lunch at German Bakery (newly renovated after the blast) and some MAC shopping :) One of the besties (K) stays in the US and she has a hard time finding MAC foundation shades for herself there... It seems finding NC shades is a little tough there and hence (being a responsible beauty blogger), I took up the whole responsibility of making sure she finds her true shade and took her to the only MAC store we have in Pune... Which inadvertently is right next to her house :P


Ofcourse visiting MAC this time wasn't only because of noble intentions of helping my friend, I wanted to pick a couple of things up too and plus I had to had to meet Hina! I hadn't met her since the day she took over as the MAC Store manager and I had been dying to congratulate her in person ^_^

Now, K has a dry skin and obviously MAC Face And Body Foundation was the one we chose for her... She matched the shade C5 and she was happy... Looking at the success K had with her foundation, P (who has oily skin) decided to give it a shot as well and hence next she ascended the "throne" (makeup chair) and Hina helped her with Studio Fix Fluid on one side of her face and Face And Body on the other side... Now looking at the instant dewy glow that MAC Face & Body gives, P and K both jumped at it... But Hina & I knew better ;) We all know how oily and greasy MAC Face & Body can get on oily skin, now don't we? But P wouldn't budge... So we persuaded her to keep the foundations on for a while and then see the results before making a decision (an expensive one that too)...

In the mean time we checked out almost all the lippies at the store (again!) and with 75% of them being out of stock we moved towards the lip glasses... After much deliberation, P picked up MAC Lipglass in Double Dare and K and I wanted the MAC Pro Long Wear Lip Glass in "Forever Rose"... However it wasn't in stock and so we were left Lipglass-less :/

P and I picked up MAC Pro Long Wear Paint Pot in Let Me Pop and I also picked MAC Goldmine...

By the time we made our purchases, P still was undecided on the foundation she wanted and we decided to go home and let P come back again on another day (once the sun was out)...

Now I live the farthest out of all 3 and by the time I reached home (driving in the freaking rain), I had received a text from P saying that after reaching home she realised that Studio Fix Fluid was truly that stayed true to her oily skin and MAC Face & Body had failed miserably :P
It was surely a I said so moment for me ;)

So long story short, stay tuned for my reviews of MAC GoldMine Eyeshadow and MAC Pro Long Wear Paint Pot in Let Me Pop

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

REVIEW: L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...




Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...




Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
