My Cute Haul and Indian Makeup and Beauty Updates

I was running short of some of my essentials so I thought I’d pick these up. ๐Ÿ™‚ Blossom Kochhar Almond Under Eye Cream: Since I keep giving away my tubes to my mom, I had to buy one for myself.ย  I already have my Fab India Under Eye Gel which does nothing more than cooling my under eye area, I needed this one. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lotus Herbals Safe Sun Sunblock Cream SPF 30: I have been using Lotus sunscreens for years and I keep coming back to them one after the other. This one says Indian Summer Formula. What else do I want? ๐Ÿ™‚ I wanted to buy the sunscreen spray that HD once mentioned about but couldn’t find that so I purchased this one.

Lotus Herbals Vanilla Lip Therapy (Rs 95):My friends and I have been great fan of Lotus lip balms during our college days. Favorite being the orange.ย  I thought I’d pick one up once again after so many years. It also has SPF -15 ta-daย  :dance: But they have become expensive now, we used to buy these for 40-50 bucks back then. ๐Ÿ™

  1. Nice haul..!!! im totaly buying the colorburst lipsticks.. i fell in love with the packaging when you first told me about them..!!! and i havent yet bought the under eye creamm…. i want to go out nowwww.!!!!!

  2. Hey, Priyanka there you are…I was watching out for you ๐Ÿ˜› :silly: ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› …..Me and Rati are first and second in the reservation queue….please let us bring our own eatables….I and Rati will take the front row seats………may be Ki and Mrun also will take the first row ?:-) …will have to ask her.

    Hey Rati, let me know how the lip balm tastes and I am waiting for how the peach color turns out. I want to know how you apply Kajal, I have the lakme one….but it always smudges out. Do you already have a tutorial on your blog about applying kajal….can you give me the link? ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Ok Jomol fine… your seats are now reserved for sure.. please bring in some melted chocolate, whipped cream and eatable lingeries along.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Ki sorry no popcorn allowed..!!!!

      2. i want Samosas… Especially at priyanka’s show…

        Thanks to her i hv not eaten one since last almost two months!!! :reallyangry:

    1. And application is hardly the key jomol… that just involves pressing your waterline down so that it shows and you can line it :-)) Rati the guru does it in all videos ๐Ÿ˜€

      Invest in a nice kajal… I find that the herbal ones smudge a lot. I use the MAC smolder pencil but a cheap and great alternative is streetwear :-))

      Sorry Rati, I’m giving faltoo advice on your blog! ๐Ÿ˜›
      .-= ki.´s last blog ..The worst makeup shopping experience ever =-.

    2. I know, we’ll get some diet chips and diet coke. ๐Ÿ˜€ And we’ll munch and gossip. ๐Ÿ˜€ Applying kajal is pretty easy. As Ki said I use it in all my videos. I don’t pull my underarea down,i just lightly press it inside. This way you are able to see your water line and aply kajal. To set it either I apply colorbar black eye pencil n my lash line or apply a black eyeshadow underneath. This keeps my kajal unsmudged for long. Although I would say that I am lucky that as it is kajal does not smudge on my eyes too much.

      Ki lol!!! You took the away key seat. ๐Ÿ˜€

    3. oh and regarding the lip blam, have used the potted version for years and liking this already. Applied the balm at 8:30 and my lips are still moisturized at 10:45. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Wow… Bare Essentials…. :laugh:

    That brush is so cute…

    Waiting patiently (???) for the LIppie swatch…. :rotfl: :rotfl:

  4. Hey I have a blue mani-pedi brush very similar to that one! :giggle:

    How does the Colorburst lippie smell??? Afraid of Revlon lippies now :-((
    Cute haul! LOL at clicking q-tips ๐Ÿ˜€


  5. I have the exact same foot brush ๐Ÿ˜€

    I too saw these Revlon lippies. Really liked the one in Rose shades, but found them to be a lil expensive at 550..

    Will wait for your review before getting these ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. Hey rati,

    How is the LOTUS LIP BALM?? ?:-) i never tried before nor did i tried the kajal, planning to garb both …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Sush,

    I am already liking the lip balm. It does not have a strong or any delicious flavour but I would say after many days I have found a lip balm that i s keeping my lips moisturized for hours at ago. Me :inlove: with it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. mmmmmmm
    i got colorbar nail thingies long back
    stupid me ….i wanna review that
    cuticle oil is same copy of lakme so did not buy

  9. nice Haul Rati, I want the eye cream too, have’nt been able to locate a place that sells nearby tho.. so I bought the lotus eye gel, I also bought the kajal, I really like it coz its a black black and doesnt smudge my eyes (at least for 4-5 hrs), I wanted to get the lip balm but I forgot, sigh!
    I also bought the Kama cleanser you recommended, I love it but I use it like gold coz its rather expensive for that quantity :-D, Im thinking Ill get the body cleanser next time too..lets see..not sure how much that is tho

    1. Hi Renuca:

      oh wow! ๐Ÿ™‚ I also love my kama cleanser. It is so natural and it removes all my black heads and dead skin. How is the lotus eye gel? I also found that Lotus kajal smudges the least among all the kajals that I have tried so far. It feels good when you guys buy the products that i recommend and also like it. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Kama body cleanser is for Rs 275 200 ml

  10. well, what can I say Rati? ur a go-to person for makeup and skincare now.. especially for stay-at-home mommies like me who do not have the luxury of time or money to spend on exploring the cosmetic jungle out there ๐Ÿ˜‰ … ur a blessing ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have just started using the eye gel over the weekend so cant really comment, but it feels good on the eyes.. and I only bought it coz lotus’s other pdts reviewed here were recommended so I figured it shd be good too..lets see

    have u tried the kama body cleanser too? thx for letting me know the price ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. :blush: Do let me know how you find the gel. I am currently using fab india gel, which is kinda okayish. After I finish this up I am going to pick either Blossom Kochhar under eye gel or lotus. So you have good 15-20 days to give your updates. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I haven’t used the kama body cleanser yet. I have some bath and body products to finish up already buy i have my eyes on it already. ๐Ÿ˜›

  11. ladies i have a question. ?:-)

    wat is the best way to wipe out the kajal.every time i try to do so i end up with dark circles around my eyes. i tried wit almond oil too bt didn’t help much, :-((

    If any boby have a better idea kindly suggest…. :hypnotized:

  12. olive oil + rose water. then wash your eyes with water and gently swipe the cotton swab on your eyes. It cleanses every last bit of your eye makeup. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Gr8 haul!!!! u didnt find that spray??? strange…my spray is abt to get over and I was thinking shud I re-buy lotus or try some other sunscreen….u have any better alternative?

    I m loving the Lotus kajal….its soo cooling for the eyes and the lip balm too….I have in cherry so it gives a nice pink tint to the lips too… times I just apply that, no lipstick and it looks nice ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. No I didn’t get that spray. ๐Ÿ™ I don’t know about the alternative. I keep coming back to these. I have used some other sunscreens in past and other than getting sunburns I have got nothing else. ๐Ÿ™ So I keep coming back to Lotus only because It suits me pretty well. You may try Blossom Kochhar Sunblock SPF 50.

      I love the Kajal, it’s my HG. And loving the lip balms also. They are so moisturizing. ๐Ÿ™‚ The vanilla one is not super yummy buy it has a nice subtle flavour to it and now I want to explore the full range he he. Will pick up cherry and chocolate. ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. hmm….Guess will try BK for a change…I was abt to buy chocolate but liked the shade of cherry and I am kinda fed up of browns so didnt buy chocolate

        1. oh!! I have also shifted away big time from browns. Pinks and peaches are tempting me these days. Btw I bought the Khadi rose water annd it kind of smells fake to me. I dunno but I liked fab india better. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Hey do you know if all the ingredients in the lip therapy are safe? Or where I can get all teh ingredients??? I searched everywhere online and now the only other choice I have is to contact the lotus people on the website and ask them.
    Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚
