    Anyways, really enjoyed the post..!!! :jiggy1: :jiggy1:

      1. hi bhumika, yupp the pencil one..its kinda ok..not too heavy kinds which is what i like …the only hitch that its too there are sharpner issues..i didnt realise this when i picked mine an year back..i managed as i used it sparingly..but now the tip is blunt and i think i will have to pick up the sharpner at TBS if its available.. 😐 😐 😐

      1. I got it from this sardarji shop at karol bagh..(expressions or impressions its called…if you know Roopak…its just near that in lane turning right if you come from the metro station side…hope u got that ).he is really famous for having all this makeup which you dont find in well as skin care and haircare…perfumes….(I have been seeing his shop since ages now…though bought sparingly….and now when I visited lats year I saw he had a separate shop a bit inside the ajmal khan road only for makeup, skincare and haircare…he has expanded…)i mean he has brands that are not formally launched in NARS, Bbbbi brown etc… I picked my Orgasm blush from him only last year…along with lipglosses..the only hitch is no you have to be careful and very sure about what you are picking…and he will sell it without any bargains…hehehehe….also you can ask him to get a particular product if you can wait..he manages..!

  15. I apologize for not mentioning blush… I am including that in my list…

    Face-primer – I am trying MAC prep + prime right now.
    Concealer – HD MakeupForever
    Foundation – Shiseido (currently using)…..will try MAC after.
    Powder – L’oreal Mineral product
    Eyeshadow – MAC ( my fav.) and WetnWild (my second fav.)
    Blush – MAC ( I just purchased Coppertone..and loving it)
    Lipstick – Avon and MAC
    Lipgloss – WetnWild
    Eyeliner – UDD 24/7 Glide – Black….(love it)
    Mascara – Avon Super shock…

    This is going to help so much!! Thanks Rati…for posting this and helping to collect all this info!!!!

    1. but I would still prefer to buy from THE store instead of him…its only if you really want something and have no option of getting it from outside India..probably he can be of use..otherwise nothing like getting it from the brand’s outlet..!! πŸ˜› πŸ˜›
