Beauty Explorer : Haul of Fame


I forgot about the no makeup purchase except essentials promise and went ahead and shameless made a small haul of some irresistible products for the sake of blogging and also for using on a bride client.
I was dying to buy some branded eyeshadows for reviewing and using in tutorials as I was tired of MAC and BH cosmetics being featured again and again. Although some products from MAC are indispensible but where have the other brands gone is what I deeply felt. So giving MAC a break for time being (I don't remember last when I featured MAC eyeshadow LOL) and prodding the path of luxury brands I managed to pick up 2 of the most luxurious eyeshadows with the most amazing textures and again some makeup bag essentials too.

So lets see the HAUL now............





Makeup bags are one of the never ending purchases for a makeup artist. Got this lovely 2 sided pouch to store lipsticks and lipglosses in one compartment and lip pencils and lip related products in the other. Just for INR186 I couldn't resist picking one from Beauty Palace in Crawford Market, Mumbai.

Kryolan makes amazing face sprays for hydrating and fixing makeup at incredibly affordable prices. So I got a small bottle of Surgiva Skin Refreshing Spray to make the skin feel happy. Who doesn't crave for a dewy complexion irrespective of the skin type?  This delivers the job there. Even after powdering this spray claims to maintain the matte effect of the powder yet make it traceless and most importantly make the complexion appear supple and glowing. With a heck lot of promises made on the container, I am going to try this out and report it on twitter tomorrow. It retails for INR 350.

Till this date I have fooled myself by using the back of my hand as my mixing palette. To make it appear dramatically amazing I got myself this lovely set of metallic mixing plate and spatula to smartly remove and mix foundation colors, mix and thin them out with primers and moisturizers and do a lot more stuff. The set is from Kryolan and is priced at INR 450.



After reading ravishing reviews from Indian Vanity Case, I had to lay my hands on these Maybelline 14 Hr Super stay lipsticks. To try in the beginning I just got 3 for bridals but soon shall be picking all the colors as they all looked good and felt amazing. The pinks especially are gorgeous and Julia Stegner on the advertisement looks ever so stunning. I shall be reviewing these beauties soon and quickly swatched them before they go on the bride's lips tomorrow onwards. I got Keep Me Coral, Lasting Chestnut and Ultimate Blush for now but shall pick up more and do a compiled review if possible. I got them at discounted prices of INR 475 b from Beauty Centre in Crawford Market as the Beauty Palace had limitations in stock. I loathe Maybelline for not launching the beige shade in India though.



Ultimately for the purpose of blogging (thats the excuse I gave to mummy) I got myself YSL Pure Chromatics eyeshadow quads in no.04 (INR 2300) and no.19 (INR 3200) as I was told by the SA that they will retail for INR 4100 soon. I shall review them with looks done specifically using these quads.

My lovely friend Prerna also got one for her first GIVEAWAY and I couldn't resist getting mine. BTW for any YSL buyers

Anyways this is a small haul and I hope you all liked it.

Till then,

Ciao
