Look What I Got: Urban Decay, NARS & Maybelline


Mini Haul consisting of Urban Decay, NARS & Maybelline

I am very stingy about shopping for makeup. I was not like this. In my initial days of blogging, I would go all out and get myself whatever I fancied... I blew half my salary on makeup, on products I didn't need and on products that I knew I would not use more than once...
But today I am more organized, have better control over temptations and well in short have become pretty frugal. So when my manager had a business trip planned to the US and he asked the team if anyone wanted anything, I didn't jump at it like how I would have earlier...
However, I did order some stuff after I gave stuff some thought and deliberation and here is what my mini haul consisted of :)

So here's what I ordered for...

1. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles

I have had my eye on this since a while now. I have seen many bloggers and youtubers abroad use and rave about this product and I just had to have it in my kitty... I wish  Maybelline and other drugstore brands launch products in India like they launch abroad...
I have been using this product for over 5 days now and I think it is working for me... Of course more details in a separate review post...

2. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup

Now this is something that I ended up buying as a misunderstanding :)
My manager was going to Target and he pinged me asking me if I needed something, so I told him to get the Eraser Dark Circles variant but well he mistook the concealer for the foundation since they both came in a similar looking tube and well I ended up with this...
I haven't yet tried this and so I have nothing to say about it... But yes I plan on testing it over the weekend...

3. Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

This was a no-brainer. I mean with the world oohing and aahing about all the Naked palettes that Urban Decay has come up with (I don't even know how many!), I knew I had to try out eye shadows from the brand... I was in no mood to shell out $54 for a palette of nude colors and even if I did I would be stuck at choosing which palette... So I took the easy and well cheaper route and opted for the $28 Naked Basics Palette... It consists of 6 shades, 5 matte and 1 lightly shimmered.
I will do a whole review post for the palette but till now I am pretty impressed with it and I totally understand the hype around it...

4. NARS Blush (Can you guess the shade?)

Well... This was a splurge of sorts but I just had to give in to temptation of owning something practically the whole world raves about... I mean come on! I needed at least one of those much talked about NARS blushes and well I got one :)
What was difficult was making a decision of selecting just one... I mean NARS totally spoils you for choice and each shade is different from the other but I wanted to get a shade that I knew I wouldn't get easily from other brands...

Any guesses on which shade I bought? :)


  1. hey from where did u get the concealer?? me too want one badly.. and love the ud palette. :)

    1. I got the Maybelline stuff from Target, Sheetal..

    2. Am I living under the rocks?? I donno what target is :P

    3. ha ha no no Sheetal you are not living under a rock.. Target is a store (super market types) in the US... One of the very famous and well common ones :) Like Walgreen or Walmart or CVS :)

  2. hi can you please tell me from where you ordered the Urban decay naked palettes..?

    1. I ordered the Urban Decay palette and the NARS blush from Sephora's US site...

  3. Haha I don't think anyone read that your manager went to US lol :)
    I am also frugal,...well I have no other choice lol

    1. ha ha looks like it Nia :) *giggles*
      and we all have a choice but only some choose to be frugal ;) PROUD TO BE FRUGAL with makeup :D Repeat after me! ♥

  4. your boss bought you makeup!!! whoa... :) mine would say you have too much already lol

    you bought deep throat or Taj?

  5. I hope my future boss is as cool as yours :P
    I wanted to try the Naked basics but I think maybe most shades will be light for me, when you review it will you please mention upto what skintones each shade will be suitable? Thanks in advance

  6. even i live in US..i dont have all these..u r tempting me now.;)

  7. Nice stuff! Did you buy Orgasm?

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

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30 #Adulting One early morning while I was sipping an exceptionally strong cup of coffee and introspecting I identified a few lifestyle changes that I had incorporated in the past year or so. On further retrospection I realised that these changes were a part of what I perceived would be good for me in the long run... When did I start thinking about my health in the future? When did I start worrying about how my skin would be 10 years down the line? OMG was I #Adulting? Is this even the correct usage of the latest hashtag?

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

  Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener  Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work... Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!
