Makeup, Beauty & Accessories Shopping

Hello all lovely IMBB ladies.

Before starting with my post, I just want share this good news with you that I got blessed with a baby boy last month on 13th Dec. So I have not been very regular on IMBB since Nov. Prior to which I was religiously following this blog & my small shopping haul here is mostly based on the product reviews done here by my fellow blog writers. But now as the exam result is out ๐Ÿ˜› & I have passed with distinction(my sweet, cute little son) here so I thought of going on a makeup shopping spree (banta bhi hai). Although I got gifts in gold from my parents, brothers and my in-laws & a beautiful diamond ring from my hubby & even many new clothes but without buying makeup stuff, I was kind of missing something so did some long pending (3 months) makeup and accessories shopping for myself. Hereโ€™s a snap of it.


In makeup stuff, first comes my first ever successful online purchase of โ€œAnmas Rucci 88 shimmer eyeshadow paletteโ€(740/-). This is much similar to the famous Coastal Scents 88 shimmer palette but the difference is in the price of the 2.While that costs more than 1500 Rs, I bought this palette for 740Rs(including shipping) from โ€˜tamanlaโ€™ seller on wise-can review it even if any1 wants.) but I was super duper happy on getting my courier on Friday. I thought it would never come but I got it in 20 days.

Next comes the Maxfactor Age Renew Foundation, shade Golden-75 (590/-) alongwith which I got the MaxFactor nail paint as a free gift. Iโ€™m really thankful to Rati as after reading her review and taking her suggestion I finally got this beautiful foundation for myself. It really goes on the face like a dream & gives a natural look even if applied for a heavy coverage. The โ€˜Disco pinkโ€™ nail paint is also quite a bright shade. There was a choice in the free gift as a lipstick n the nail paint. But they had just a light pink shade in the lipsticks which I already had so I tuk the nail paint instead. The pic below shows just 1 swipe of it.

Then comes my Maybelline Colossal waterproof mascara(234/-) & the Maybelline Colorsensational moisture extreme lip color โ€˜Iced Orchidโ€™ (187/-) which is again a bright pink shimmery lipcolor shade. I tuk this shade as I have many bright pink dresses with which itโ€™ll go very well. Both Maybelline products were on 15% off price.
Next is the Revlon super lustrous Lipstick-Pearl(shade 377). The shade is a bronze shade that can either be used alone or on top of any matte shade to give a gold shimmer effect. The swatches of both the lipsticks are below. Left is the Revlon โ€˜Pearlโ€™ shade & right side is the Maybellineโ€™s โ€˜Iced Orchidโ€™.

Last comes the Lakme True Wear nail paints(90/- each)-Twilight mauve (shade 103) & metallic bridal sutra shade 241. Single coat of both the shades used alternately-shade 241 being first on Index finger & mauve 103 on middle finger.

The next image shows the set of 8 nail paints I got as a gift from my bhabhi who got it from Dubai. Not tried them as yet but all are shimmery, glossy which can be either used alone or on top of any nail paint to give a shiny effect.

This completes my cosmetic shopping haul & now for the different earrings & sets which I selected but got as gifts are:
Set of maroon & white pearl earrings from โ€˜Zaveri peralsโ€™, another gift from my dad on my anniversary. The actual cost was 1950/- but as it was on an offer of Buy1 & get 1 free so its cost is around 1000/-.

Then comes my hubbyโ€™s anniversary gift- a multicoloured blue chain & matching loops from Accessorize store. The chainโ€™s cost was of 745/- & earrings were of 645/-. I wore them on my anniversary(attaching the pic of the same ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).



Last comes the gift from my bhai-bhabhi. This is a set from โ€˜maxโ€™, she got from Dubai for me. Left side is the image of the set of 8 nail paints.
