A Long Overdue Makeup Haul!

This long weekend, has been one of the more fun ones in a LONG LONG time! There has been catching up with friends at FIO (if you are in Delhi- this is a must visit restaurant) , there has been another trip to Chandni Chowk for random wedding stuff, there has been ‘Hunger Games ‘(If you havent seen this movie- go watch it now, its possibly the best movie iv seen in the recent couple of months) there has been shopping for suits with ze boy (something i LOVE doing) and last but not the least a little bit of a makeup haulage! I know you wont believe me when i say this ,  but i havent bought makeup in forever!!! I feel like i have so much that i dont use,  that i”d rather just get through all my old stuff (which i think will take me atleast the next 400 years to do). But well, you know in the whole ‘bridal splurge ‘ mood thats taken me over recently i bought some stuff that will go into my bridal makeup emergency kit (i shall do a postt on what this kit should contain), and some stuff that i just bought …cos well, Kareena Kapoor was tempting me in the Lakme Absolute Ads.

Benefit Finding Mr.Bright Kit: Price Rs 2600/-

The star of the show really is the ” Benefit Finding Mr.bright” kit. I thought, since i found my mr.right, its about time i look for Mr.bright too!!!! Isnt this like the perfect little kit for highlighting, i was standing there at Kunchals asking the SA to show me every single highlighter they had (I swatched Bobbi BRown Shimmer bricks much to the SA’s chagrin – “Maam, please. Yeh tester nahi hai Hmph “she said), i swatched Guerlain Metorites, all the benefit highlighters and when nothing seemd to cost less than 3000 rupees, i was going to give up till i saw this adorable orange and fuschia box peeping out from below. At 2500 Rs, its not really cheap, but given that this has like 2 highlighters, a cheek tint and concealer i thought it was a good deal no????? . This is definitely going into my bridal emergency kit, you need to look bright infront of mr right you see?

Colorbar Shimmer Magic 3 in One Bronzer/Blush/ Eyeshadow  Price Rs 750/- : No clue why i bought this. I didnt need it, i didnt think i would use it. But it was so freaking huge, like a giant peach idli (im hungry and we have south indian food for breakfast today), i just felt i needed to buy it to see what the hell it was.

Lakme Absolute Matte Lipstick in Peach Carnation Price: Rs 375/-:

Not really a peach, more like a medium rosey  pink brown but SUCH a pretty color !!! Specially for medium to dark skin tones, this is so lovely as an everyday color!!!

Lakme Absolute Lip Last 01 Price Rs 550/-

: Very Very pretty peachy pink, but not impressed with the product as a whole. Review coming soon.

Kryolan TV Paint Stick in FS28 Price: Rs 800/-: This is a MUST have in your bridal emergency kit according to me. Gives flawless, movie star like coverage but takes a while to know the best application method. Review comign soon. I also bought the Kryolan Dermacolor concealer  which costs around Rs 350/-

Kritika April 8, 2012 at 3:28 pm

Colorbar peach idli ! BAHAHAHAH ! Oh you crack me up.
Mr. Bright kit looks so awesome !! But each item is like worth a Bourjois lipstick. Four Bourjois lipsticks or this kit. Yikes.
Benefit Finding Mr.Bright Kit / one Bourjois lipstick = 4

And I have no clue what’s happening to my maths :|


mehak April 8, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Hahahaha !!!! That is one complicated match problem. Yeah i know, its expensive but i have SO many lipsticks man…thoda highlighter splurge banta tha

Xuvious April 8, 2012 at 10:05 pm

Ohmygosh, that benefit box is so cute!!
I never tried the lip glaze/brush type of lippie, so I’ll be looking out for that review :)

I don’t live in Delhi, so is Kunchals like a multi-brand cosmetic store? Do they have stores in other cities?


ashwini April 9, 2012 at 8:26 am

the benefit box is awesome…i have high beam and love it. waiting for your review on colorbar thing. i have read pretty bad stuff about the lip last though the idea of a long lasting stain in good but the product is drying and uneven it seems.i hope you are having great time prepaing for the wedding…:)


Pooja@IBC April 9, 2012 at 9:02 pm

Mr. Bright’s looking good! And I’m so eying the TV paint stick, that’s the best investment for your bridal vanity :)


Amrita April 16, 2012 at 3:14 pm
