Reviews ~ Nars, Chi, Benefit, Tweezerman

Here are the reviews on the Pretties From StrawberryNet

Nars Multiple Duo ~ Maldives/Riviera
Two words. Love it.
I was very very surprised to see how big the packaging is. In my head, I thought it would be the size of the blush and each multiple would be the size of half the blush. I adore both the colors and I find the texture of the Multiples very interesting...smooth yet neither sticky nor oily. The pigmentation is also "Just Right"
I wish I was the one who created it ;p
Buy Again? Absolutely! In other colors, of course.

Benefit ~ Thrrrob Turned On Face Powder
This is too sheer to be worn alone, so I like to layer it over a cream blush. It does bring a nice glow to the face. The brush is nice, not to mention the fabulous corset box. But I can live without this for sure.
Buy Again? Nope.

Chi Silk Infusion ~ Silk Reconstructing Complex
Omg this smells *sooo* good! Ironing does go smoother with this on my hair. I haven't used it much, but I know that even if it does not improve my hair, I'd still buy it again for the lovely smell.
Buy Again? Answered already.

Tweezerman Tweezers
WOW! These are amazing. Tweezing feels so effortless with them. They are sturdy and they grip the hair so tight that you don't have to worry about not pulling from the roots. I love that they come in a vial and has a tip cover, this ensures that the tweezers will always be as good as new even when you carry them in a stuffed make-up pouch/bag.
Buy Again? I don't think I'll need to. But if I had to, Y-E-S.

I hope these reviews will be useful to some who are thinking about trying these products.

By the way, StrawberryNet has a Valentine's Day Promotion going on right now until the 14th of February. You can check out the detailsHere 

Valentine's Day!!! Woohooo....! The first occasion of the year when you can really justify splurging :)

Have a great weekend everyone!

What Was I Up To?

Gosh! I've been out of the blogging world for some time that I feel like I have writer's...umm...I mean blogger's block (???) ;p

I just thought I'd put up a few photos of some of the fun I had in my hometown as a filler post, while I write some beauty related stuff. Apologies again for my laziness the last few weeks and sloppiness! You should see me. Bad cold and unbrushed hair :O
Well, these pics sure make me feel better.

Till Next Time ....

Keep your lipsticks on....^.~

Pretties From StrawberryNet

I received this parcel from StrawberryNet  after Christmas. I must say, I am very very impressed with the fast shipping (I received them within 10 days) and how they packaged everything in a box filled with thermocol so the cute little things will be shipped without any damages (Don't we all just hate it when they come broken?!! \= )

For those of you who don't know about Strawberrynet , it is a Hong-Kong based online shopping destination that sells discounted cosmetics and offers free shipping to anywhere in the world
What makes it easier to shop at Strawberrynet is the scroll down tool that lets you select your region/country before you shop so that the currency will automatically be converted to your own. Not only that, you can select our own language too - for those who can't read the universal English. For us Indians we can pick Hindi. By "us" I mean most Indians and a very small part of my Hindi-challenged brain :)

Honestly, I personally like that everthing is in alphabetical order and when you click on one brand, you'll see everything in one page- from eye to lip products. Quick and easy. No confusion. 
Who has the time to find cow when seeking sheep???

I'm so glad I've found an alternative to Ebay. A beauty addict living in India, where all the most wanted cosmetic products don't come easy, needs more than one online store to seek gratification from.

Strawberrynet sells almost every popular cosmetic brand from Mac to Laura Mercier to Bobbi Brown to Philosophy (I might order a lil' bit of "Hope" later) to Shu Uemura to YSL to lots more. I should have ordered the YSL Touche Eclat from them instead of the nearby mall to save a few bucks. Damn!
And yeah, you'll find beauty tools, hair products and fragrances at discounted prices too. Right now, get Super Special 30% - 60% OFF on fragrances like Britney Spears Curious, JLo Glow, YSL Babydoll (all my favorites) and lots more. 

The Pretties. MUAH! :*)

  • Chi Silk Infusion Silk Reconstructing Complex
  • Nars Multiple Duo ~ Maldives/Riviera
  • Benefit Thrrrob Turned on Face Powder (I'm so turned on by the corset design box ^.^ lol)
  • Tweezerman Tweezers ~ Pink with white polka dots
If you want to grab any (or all!) of these products for yourselves and many more click ~ Here

Remember how much I wanted these tweezers?!! Should I add crystals on them later on? hehe...

I will be reviewing all of these products  later when I've used them for some time okey dokey...

Any of you have tried the products above? Do let me know how you find them.

Till next time...have a great week you all! =)

♥ Happy New Year!!! ♥

Hi everyone, I'm back! I missed blogging and reading all your blogs so much in the last six days =\ . For those of you who don't know, I'm in my hometown and I just got my internet connection on the 31st.

Anyway, I had a blast on new year's eve and I hope you all did too =)
Today I just slept the whole day because I'm partied out and it's *sooo* cold here. But from tomorrow I'm going to catch up on all that I've missed ~ little by little.

And of course some new posts coming up too. Apologies to my regular readers. Thanks for visiting everyday...I wish you all a very happy, prosperous and blessed "2010"
