Hello honey bunches!
So it is October and the festive season is knocking at the doors! To set the mood right, I went on a mini cosmetics haul! My wardrobe is festive ready and I have already planned the looks I will be flaunting in the upcoming events! To pair with my outfits, I have got few basic makeup stuffs.
So here’s showing a sneak peek of the goodies I bought !
Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette:
Doesn’t it look oh-so-gorgeous? Ever since Urban Decay launched the very famous Naked eye shadow palettes, neutral eye look has grown into a trend. Considering the price point of the original UD palette, every other drugstore brand is coming up with their own version of neutral palettes. Our favorite Maybelline is not an exception! This palette is a recent launch in India. You get 12 fabulous shades of earthy browns, shimmery gold, matte darks and pearly highlighters in a single palette just for 899 bucks! The 12 shades can be further combined into smaller quads, triples and duals to create countless number of different eye looks!
As you know, I am not a big eye shadow person. So I thought this palette could be a good option to start with the experimentation. After all, you can never go wrong with classic nudes, right? I swatched the tester in the counter and most of the shades turned out to be decently pigmented.
Detailed review will come soon and I am thinking of creating few eye makeup looks with it as well! *EXCITED* So please stay tuned for that J
Maybelline Colorshow Creamy Matte Lipstick ‘Madly Magenta’
I love Maybelline! They keep launching new bunch of goodies almost every month with great quality and awesome price tags! These creamy matte lipsticks are the new addition to the existing Color Show lipstick range. As usual, they are categorized into red, pink, brown and mauve and the shade ‘Madly Magenta’ belongs to the mauve family.
I have been craving for a vivid purple lip shade of late and this lippie is a love-at-first-sight! It is not a pure purple as I was looking for. Rather it is a mauvish purple with mild hint of pink! Very wearable, goes with almost every outfit and comfortable matte finish! Full review and LOTD coming soon!! Priced at 325 INR.
Maybelline Colossal kohl Turquoise:
I have quite a few of colored kohls and this one is the latest entrant to join the gang! I love the colors teal, aqua and turquoise for my eyes! This eye pencil’s been around since a while and the reason why I got hold of it quite late is that I already own another turquoise color from Avon in my stash. Both shades are not exactly the same and beautiful in their own ways! Avon Turquoise has strong bluish tinge to it whereas this MNY one is lot more greener! Both are smooth and glide effortlessly but I am slightly biased towards Maybelline in this aspect!
Price: INR 249
I got two of them, one from Maybelline Color Show named ‘Crystal Clear’ and the other from Health & Glow named ‘Lobster Red’. Crystal Clear is the go to top coat I use on top of my regular nail paints to prevent it from chipping as well as for added shine. Lobster Red is a pretty rusty orange/red color and I got it at a deal price of INR 49. Yipee!!
So guys, these are the stuffs I had in my wishlist and I am happy to get hold of them finally. It is all Maybelline I know, as I love this brand too much! I am planning to do another massive beauty haul this month once I reach my hometown (courtesy: parents, LOL J J J) I will definitely update that as well on this space!
Until then, stay tuned and stay beautiful J
