Collective Haul & Swatches

Below are products which I never had the time to swatch or do reviews on. Some I bought recently and some in '09. For a while, I had actually forgotten about some of them =)

YSL Rouge Volupte in Frivolous Pink (Rs.1730)

No.. No.. No...
This lipstick is kinda overrated to me. Yes it's creamy and silky but it does not settle on your lips unless you use your finger to blend it. Plus the color is so "WRONG" for me. I didn't go buy it myself. Well, long story short, I picked the color over the phone. But no worries, for Rs. 1730 I'll make it work. By that, I mean either apply sparingly or mix it with other colors. The only thing i absolutely love about it is the luxurious packaging.

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Crystal Shine~ RD 165S (Rs.945), Bourjois Docteur Glamour ~ Rose Toubib (Rs.520), L'Oreal Infallible ~ Blush Obsession (Rs.800)

Love all of these. Good luck getting L'Oreal Infallible off your lips! Long-wear indeed.

Bourjois Glittering Loose Eyeshadow~07 Ambre (Rs.585), Bourjpis Little Round Pot Eyeshadow ~ 34 Rose Tentation (Rs.380)
I adore these eyeshadows especially Rose Tentation. It's so pretty

 ♥Bourjois Maxi Frange Mascara (Waterproof) ~ Isn't the packaging of this so cute?!I didn't like this mascara very much when I first got it but I used it again yesterday and was surprised to see that it's not so bad. I'll try to use it up.
♥Bourjois Liner Glitter Fizz in 33 Sparkling green ~ Perfect colored liquid eyeliner imo
♥Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner (Black) ~ Love this!
♥Bourjois Sparkling Eyeliner ~31 Noir Eblouissant (Rs.250) ~ Love this too.

(L-R)Bourjois Green, Bourjois Sparkling, Maybelline Unstoppable

Bourjois Duo Lip Scrub & Baume

This is such a fun product. I like scrubbing my lips with the little buffer because it sort of increases the blood circulation to the lips which plumps them up and brings a nice natural color. The glycerine-infused iridescent balm does improve my chapped lips. I sure won't be throwing away this tube even when I've used up the balm.

Mini Bourjois Eau De Gloss in Framboise Glacee ~ FREE!

Inglot Nail Enamel in #150 (Rs.550)
I really like the finish of this nail polish and the lilac is perfect for spring. Will definitely be buying more Inglot nail polishes. The color selection is gorgeous.

  1. Loove the bourjois products you have there gurlie! especially the lip scrub thingy :D I agree the YSL lippy can defo be duped for less :S They have other better colors which you could go for next time though :)

  2. i <3 bourjois
    have you tried their shower gels and skincare? it's awesome, and smells sooooooooo good!

  3. Everything you bought is simply gorgeous. I LOVE the green eyeliner, and I'm so tempted to try L'Oreal Infallible now!

  4. Nice haul! Love the lippies. Maybe I'll get the bourjois one

  5. @Shifa...I wanted another color but it wasn't available. I don't think I'll be buying another one of these :S

    @Manju...nope not yet but will do for sure. Thanks for the reco

    @Ashwini...U should. It's good :)


  6.'ll look good on u


  7. I love the haul! The green glitter liner looks pretty!
    By the way,
    where do you buy Inglot stuff?

  8. great stuff! now I want to try l'oreal infallable hehe because lip products usually only stay on my lips for like a minute before i eat or drink something then it's gone!

  9. Lovely haul! I especially love the green eyeliner from Bourjois. I have been wanting to buy a rich, green liner. I think it would complement brown eyes rather nicely. The nail polish you got is equally pretty. I love color like that for Spring!

  10. What a great haul! Lots of Bourjois, I see. :) The sparkling green eyeliner is pretty, it's such a nice green. I don't think I've seen the Bourjois lip scrub before. It does look unusual. I will check for it the next time I go to the store. :)

  11. Great hauls, Cynthia! The Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Crystal Shine look fab on you. =D

  12. great haul!!
    loving the colour of that inglot polish!

  13. Lovely haul! I am really going to pick up Bourjois glitter eye liner next time. It's so gorgeous. :)The loreal lippy looks fab! :)

    Not tried loreal product much for some reason. Let me get my hands on them from now on.

  14. wow !!
    love the INGLOT polish and the bourjois scrub thingie !!
    even I spotted the YSL rouge when I was strolling in ambience , oh my , its so ridiculously priced nuh the packaging is to die for !!

  15. I too had a similar cool pink lipstick. Finally threw it away a few months ago :D

    The rest of the stuff is quite nice :D

  16. wat to do! cant help suckers for packaging, include myself!

    I want that lip scrub, in fact everything in the picture! very badly!

    i would have passed away knowing I picked up the wrong color for 1700 bucks! I wouldnt be alive to make it work :)

  17. The ysl color is soo pretty. and the packaging too! and the loreal infallible is gorgeous.
    also the e/s and the nail polish too! LOL.
    everything is gorgeous :)

  18. Wow, so many Bourjois products I have never seen :O In Singapore there is only very limited collection *cry*

    And, wow! Inglot :D Did you know it originates from my home country - Poland? ;D I used to buy only it, before I moved to SG. It's such a nice brand =D Love their nail polishes.

  19. Thanks for the lip swatches! except the first color the rest are suitable for u.

  20. New follower here! :)

    I actually like that YSL lippie on you! Admittedly, I'm partial to cool toned pinks. I may also be distracted by the gorgeous packaging. I don't care about the lipstick; I just want the gold tube! LOL!

    Great blog! :)

  21. Whoah whatta lovely haul. I'm so envious on the YSL Rouge Volupte Haul, I'm lemming it for the longest time. I'm waiting for Strawberry.Net to have this on sale again hehe ;)

    And thanks so much for the visit girl, for the sweet comments and for joining my Skin MD Giveaway yay, tnx a lot. ^_^

    I tagged you by the way, it's the Lucky Chinese Tag. It's supposed to bring goodluck to those people bein' tagged lol ^_^

  22. love all the stuff you got! too bad about the ysl lippie though... so many ppl rave about it and i wanted to try it, but i just can't find a color that i think would work on me. everything is too bright.

  23. the ysl lipstick looks really nice.
    i am actually looking for a nice shade of pink lipstick. im considering this. i must plan very well. haha.

  24. I really want one of those YSL lipsticks they look so pretty :)

    Lots of love,

  25. I adore the nail polish. I bought a purple nail polish last spring HOPING that it would be the same colour as yours, but it ended up being too bright and looked REALLY bad against my skin. Oh well.

    I just ordered a new lipstick and your post makes me impatient for it to arrive! So many great products. :)

  26. I forgot to say that you should check out these lipsticks!

  27. Oooh, I would buy that YSL lipstick in a heart beat just for the sheer beauty of the case!! Soo delicate and beautiful! + the color looks great on you =) Hope all is well!! Love your reviews.

  28. hey i am so glad i read this post! i recently did a lipstick review for rati and was in doubt about the price of the ysl rouge volupte. i thought i got it for 2700! talk about forgetfulness! i'll tell her to correct the price right away.

  29. I am loving that colour..Rose Toubib from Bourjois..

    Hope its still available :-)

  30. @GGG~ Ya it must be available...I'm sure u'll get it



I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
