Makeup Haul ~ New Launches + Drawer Organizers

I always get weird looks from the counter people at Lifestyle when I'm buying makeup. I don't know why. Maybe I appear too eager, maybe I walk from counter to counter a bit too crazily - sometimes back & forth to "compare", maybe I look too flustered, maybe I take too long to decide which shade I want, maybe I move to another counter while they are bent over those bottom cabinets looking for a product I asked for (they come back up & hey, where'd she go?!) maybe I ask "New launch? New Launch?" like a vendor in a train - "Bhel puri? Bhel puri?" 

Okay, okay, I'll control myself next time. Before I set foot in the beauty floor, I'll coach myself first:
 "Be cool. Breathe. Neutral facial expression. Walk graciously. Duchess Of Cambridge....."

First counter - Maybelline!

The Magnum Barbie Mascara ~ This is similar to The Falsies Mascar, but with a slightly more slender brush & the formula is more packed with fibres. First Impression: Could clump & smudge easily, but if you can handle that like a meticulous woman, false lash kind of volume & length!
Price: Rs.399

Color Sensational 3D Eyeshadow Palette in Rose Quartz Pink ~ A little palette of 5 eyeshadows, in which there is a top coat shimmer eyeshadow. Available in 4 shades. 
Price: Rs.575

Color Show Big Apple Reds Nail Paints ~ A collection of 4 red shades. I picked up R2 Big Apple Red. 
Price: Rs.145

Fit Me Concealer in #20 Sand ~ This is a repurchase. I'd got the first one in the same shade from UK, and they are both the same.
Price: Rs.500

Color Show 3D Eyeshadow Palette in Rose Quartz Pink

Colorbar All-Day Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick in Dream ~ Matte black. Would make a good smoky eye makeup base. 
Price: Rs.850

Chambor Orosa Sculpting Eye Shadow in Rose Smoke ~ A rose gold kind of shade.
Price: Rs.795

These two shadow sticks are so similar! Packaging looks the same & they both have sharpeners at the end. Same manufacturer, perhaps?

Chambor Extreme Wear Transferproof Liquid Lipstick in #403 ~  The color looks off in the pic, but it is a fuchsia pink, quite similar to MAC Flat Out Fabulous. Not sure how I feel about this yet, so let's see after a a few more wears. Also, I'm a bit confused, because I thought I swatched & picked a brighter pink shade!
Price: Rs.845

L'Oreal Color Riche Nail Polish in #408 Exquisite Scarlet ~  Since I adore another shade from this range, Boudoir Rose
Price: Rs.250.

And then the drawer organizers...

The big ones: Rs.230 each
  The medium ones: Rs.230 each
The small ones (on the far right):  Pack of 3 for Rs.280. These  can be joined.

All from Lifestyle Home Centre.

I've decided to keep my dressing table top empty from now on, and keep all the products I use regularly in these organizers, which will be kept inside the top drawer. Ziizayne now grabs things, yes, but mainly because I tend to over-clutter. Oh, you should see the state it's in right now ;p

Let's see if I can be done with that and maybe sneak in a photo for you all to see during the weekend.

Let's see! =D

But before that, I will show you something cool I discovered! 



  1. Love to see your review on Chambor Extreme Wear Transferproof Liquid Lipstick,...

  2. Haha, you sound exactly like me! I love snooping around makeup stands oohing and aahing over new products. I'm forever swatching and trying out new items, though I'll probably only walk away with maybe 1-2 products. but yes, I'm quite familiar with the crazy eye look you get when you spot something new!

    According to Mimi

  3. I tried the chambor lipsticks at the counter & I really loved the formula! I think I will skip on the mascara, what a disappointment.

  4. All makeup enthusiasts behave in a similar fashion. I think the SA at the counters are quite used to us.

  5. Hey.. how is the Color Show 3D Eyeshadow Palette ? I am looking for a eyeshadow pallete....I hope you would do a swatch, review and EOTD...... Pleaseeee do, CZ!!! :)

  6. Hi, not trying to be rude or something, but these storage boxes come for RS. 50 in general stores. I have exactly the same!!
    also, please do review that eyeshadow palette from Maybelline.

  9. Interesting, have seen new kinds of organisers at Lifestyle. am waiting for them to bring them in more pretty colors.

  10. Nice haul. And I have the same draw organizers, they are perfect for organizing my makeup.

  11. Oh my! I also need an organizer like this one. Its easier to find what I need in my drawer with those. Are there any other colors? If none, I'm okay with white.

  12. Hi I really want to know where you buy clothes for your baby. Also I cannot find the same white blanket you bought on mother care for your son. Could you please post the link? 3

  13. I hop from one counter to the other counter too, specially with all these new launches :D I am new launch maniac between he he . Nice haul.

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! :)
