oh I forgot about Midi mauve. Love it. :))
anupam hows d TBS concealer stick ? u have dat pencil form 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 fat..so 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.. 😐 😐 😐
Primer: ** now on the look out for something different**
where did you pick up bobbi brown corrector from?
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 India..as 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 India..like NARS, Bbbbi brown etc… I picked my Orgasm blush from him only last year…along with lipglosses..the only hitch is no testers..so 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..!
OMGGG!!! and are those real products??
