LOTD: You Know......?

You know I can't remember the last time I wore blackish smoky eyes?

You know I've stopped wearing bold red & fuchsia lipsticks for a long time?

You know I want to binge read 'The Girl On The Train' before the movie comes out?

You know I get this  strong urge to lie back on the floor at a shopping mall, yoga flap my arms and legs in & out, and shout "THIS IS THE FEELS! I FEELS! I NO CRAZY!"?

You know the top I'm wearing costs less than all the products I'm wearing on my face?

Makeup Products  I Used (Pic below):


Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in #128 Warm Nude/Beige Chaud
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in #20 Sand/Sable
L'Oreal Perfect Match Crayon Concealer in #40 Natural for spots.
Inglot Mattifying Loose Powder in #32. It's a yellowish powder that disappears into your skin like magic.
MAC Pro Longwear Blush in Rosy Outlook. I've hit pan on this.
MAC Soft & Gentle Mineralize Skinfinish to highlight cheek bones. I used the Forever 21 Fan Brush, which makes me want to apply highlighter every single day, because at 329 rupees it's pure love! 


Very basic smoky eyes using the Colorbar All Day Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick in Dream (black) & Chambor Orosa Sculpting Eyeshadow in Rose Smoke as a base, and then I used some eyeshadows from the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette on the crease and lower ash line.
Inner corner highlighted with the newly launched MAC Modern Twist Kajal Liner in Grey Tide, a platinum shade.
Falsies are Ardell (forgot the number) with a few individual lashes layered on top


Chambor Extreme Wear Liquid Lipstick in #403

Off-shoulder vintage floral top is from Faballey. Got it under Rs.500 from Myntra.

Headband is Forever 21. Yeah, in between I thought "Hmm...maybe I should wear something on my head. Perhaps that would make me more photogenic after all the previous crappy pics."  =D



You know I never quite know how to end a blog post?

You know when I hear the word "BLOG", I immediately think of some small slimy tadpole-sized water creature that looks like a bulldog?

You know this is my vacation month?

You know I finally found a cute bikini set that can actually hide all that I want to conceal?

You know I'm  very very thankful for all your warm birthday wishes on my previous post?

You know I'd still blog even if I had only 10 readers?

You know I've run out of clever words to say?

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! :)
