I am going to travel in April, so I thought of buying all the essentials and stocking travel sizes of the things I use. Also, I wanted to test some new items (blogger tendencies :-P), so shopped online from Amazon, Instagram, Nykaa, Myntra & Purplle. I will post the links and where to buy them too, but the prices shown will be current. No guarantee of any running discounts. 😦 Sorry.Also,I think only Amazon will benefit you if you are staying abroad India,as other sites don’t deliver there.
Many bloggers gave thumbs up to Incolor Matte Me lipsticks, which are affordable matte lipsticks. You know the craze, right? I bought only 1 shade, as I wanted something in deep blood red color. The shade no. is 402.I haven’t tried it yet as I am suffering from dry lips due to continuous use of matte lip creams. Does anyone of you suffer from this? Do let me know what to do. 😦 I bought this from an Instagram account The_makeup_and_jewellery_shop, which offers the lowest shipping cost. COD is available in Kolkata only. I keep browsing through various accounts till I find the lowest shipping price.(Saving is my forte 😉 )I paid 250+50 shipping for this through bank transfer.
I also bought Maybelline colorshow matte lipstick in Mysterious Mocha M304.It is nude lipstick as in brown lipstick with pink undertones. More of a Kylie Jenner lip shade. This lipstick is drying on the lips, more than the Miss Claire ones. I will post a detailed review on this. I paid INR 276 after discount on 325. Sales were amazing around the Valentine’s Day on Nykaa.com.
From the same place, I also bought Chicco cleansing wipes. I had an order issue if you are following me on Insta. Anyway it costs INR 169 for 72 wipes. It is pricey but each wipe is sufficient for the face, neck and hands. Pretty big size! Also it is alcohol-free, soap-free and is moisturizing. Baby products are the safest products for skincare. I bought this when I saw Haul video of beauty Youtuber Debasree.
Dry lips mean lip balm. Somehow, my herbal lip balms weren’t working that much. I was reapplying them within half an hour. I had used Neutrogena lip balm earlier and I swear by it. So I picked it up too from Nykaa.com for INR 149 for 4g product. This is the best lip balm I had ever used having SPF. You need a layer only and your lips get moisturized for a long time.
After reading the ill-effects of using nylon loofah, I bought a cotton-bamboo fiber based loofah from Audrey’s. This is the first time I am using this kind .For 195 bucks, I paid only 117 INR on Nykaa.com. It feels soft against the skin, and takes away the dry skin without irritating or damaging it.
The site was running this offer of giving free sample size of 50 ml Avene gentle milk cleanser on any purchase of Avene product, so I grabbed this offer when I bought Avene thermal spring water in 50ml.It cost me 600 bucks. This is good for travel purpose, as for home, I have 2 big bottles in 300ml. I suffer from sensitive atopic skin, so needed to try this cleanser. Yet to test it.
From Purplle.com, I stocked on my haircare by buying the Loreal X-tenso shampoo and hair masque in discounted prices. I am telling you, I am hoarder during the sales. 😛 Shampoo costs 575, but I paid 479 for 230 ml. Same for the masque, I paid 574 only after getting discount on 675 INR for 200 ml. I need these for my smoothened hair. They keep my hair soft, frizz-free and removes mild-dandruff .In the same range I bought the serum at full price of 600 bucks for 50 ml from nearby store.
I managed to lay my hands on the much raved about Loreal Paris La palette nude eyeshadow palette in Rose. On V-day, various sites were running 50% off on selected products for 14 min. :-\ I grabbed this for 700 only after discount on 1400 MRP on Amazon.in. The color pay-off is okay, as in you have to build it up on your lids. Definitely requires a primer/white shadow as base.Here’s the link.
L’Oreal Paris La Palette Nude, Rose, 7g
Also, bought Lakme white radiance compact powder in Golden medium at a discount. I paid 180 bucks against 210.This was at Myntra app. This is good for normal to combination skin.
I will be posting soon a clothing haul.Do lookout for it. 🙂
