Makeup Haul Based on IMBB Recommendations

My very first IMBB almost-haul


I’ve been on IMBB for exactly one month now, and it was time to be inspired by you beautiful ladies out there , and go ahead and buy myself some products that I’ve been hearing lots about, strike a few items off my ‘wishlist’. I’ve been reading reviews and reading comments from people at IMBB and I made a wish list, some normal stuff some a li’l luxurious. I wouldn’t call this trip ‘pampering’ myself, because it is actually a necessity. I’m on a limited budget every month (pocket moneyyyyy !! ), so I tried to get best value for money thingys. Today I went shopping, didn’t plan to go to the makeup shop, but I saw one li’l shop so I decided to go and see if they have any good things. These are the products I bought and ALL were reviewed or atleast mentioned and raved on IMBB.
Thank you soooooooooooooo much ladies, I’m enjoying my time on IMBB a lot and I’m enjoying these products a lot, I hope in a few years, I can afford all the goody goody stuff, but till then my wishlist will be in making!!

I already tried nail art once, but it came out horrible, and the colour combi was weird, it was maroon and light orangish-pink, tomorrow I’m going to try black and pink . 🙂

Lotus Lip Balm – Fruity Fusion

Every one on IMBB is crazzzyyyyy about LOTUS, esp its lip balms. I’m very ashamed to admit that I had never heard about this brand till I came to IMBB :-O but now I’m going to use it regularly, I’m luuuuuuurving this lip balm, its pale pink in colour and it smells like strawberries, tastes very fruity and looks AWESOME !!!

Ok no one has reviewed this kajal (Mumtaz Kajal) , but this kajal is simply amazing. I used this kajal years ago and kind of forgot about it, but suddenly I remembered about it, I couldn’t find it in any shops.

I mentioned it to Gia and Janhavi, and Janhavi gave me its website and said its very common, toh I started asking in shops again and I found it !! It comes in different flavours, this blue one is camphor and is extremely cooling. Every one please try this , it just rocks, it comes with a stick for application which makes it very easy to apply.

Next on my wish list-

  • Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara
  • VLCC Kajal
  • Fab India orange facial spray, rose spray, coral glow pack, tea tree face wash

  4. hi, im neha, firstly id like to say this blog is superb! works realy well for indians. as a makeup-freak i used to hunt all u tube videos etc , loved them but it was all by firangs and many things that suit them dont suit us… though i learnt a lot of techniques from there one day i ended up typing ‘makeup for indians or some such and stumbled upon this blog!!!
    and i must say im lovin it!!! i used to be addicted to facebook before , everday after colg i used to come home and open my homepage-“facebook”

    now every day i come home and open my hotmail account in anticipation for a new post on IMBB! lol! a i said, im loving it!!

    wat i love abt this blog is that there is so much of detailed description , to the ‘T’ , how makeup wie every one is here and ofcourse ‘the great great friendship and chemistry that all of u share!!”

    initialy i refrained from commenting wondering wud anyone talk to me? im only 21 and everyone is already frnds here… but gradually i came to realise ppl here are from every age groups and diffrnt parts of coutry/world and everyone is warmly welcomed here…

    so from now on i decided il comment here too 😉 i wanted to do a lot of reviews and makeup look but id require time to click upload research etc, hence iv decided il start trying reviews after my colg gets done in feb! i have a graduating fashon show in feb.. 🙂 after dat i get my social life back lol and wudnt wait one day to start preparing on looks and reviews…
    pheww… i hope i dint bore anyone!
