After Valentine's Day | LOTD



"What did you wish for?", she asked him.

He looked down, and kicked an imaginary pebble on the ground.

"Never mind. I shouldn't be asking.", she said with a smile. He wasn't looking at her.

Still not looking at her, he answered,  "It used to be something unattainable. Like a private jet, a lifetime supply of everything Nintendo, waking up next to Sunny Leone, to be Batman once a month ..... but now.... it's something right in front of me, yet just as unattainable, and probably something I kinda already know I'll never have.....", then his eyes met hers before she could look away ".....that heart of yours."

Like a punctuation to his words, a single tear rolled down her left eye. Like it's the only rational thing to do, she hugged him. As she listened to his heart beat faster, and felt his hand in her hair, she shut her eyes as tightly as she possibly could, in an attempt to shoo a single thought she wished she could forget forever. No, please, go awa..... *I wished it was him instead of you.*

Shooting stars didn't grant wishes after all.

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?

Birthday Confessions & Haul


Today's NOT my birthday. It came & went a week ago, but I couldn't find the time to get this post up then. Now I'm doing the usual should I/shouldn't I post thing.....and then I post it.

Let's start with the good stuff... 

....and you will see I went a lil' crazy with the liquid lipsticks....


Starting from the top, clockwise:

Benefit They're Real Mascara Mini ~ Oh my God! I'm doomed, because I will need the full-sized tube. This mini version is around  Rs.800 & the full sized tube is Rs.2400 or so. It is fantastic - long, fluttery & separated lashes like no other mascara I've tried before. (From Sephora)

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Personal Statement (Shocking Pink), Rich & Restless (Mid tone pinky salmon) & Lady Be Good (Warm Mid-tone Nude) ~ Out of stock. Always out of stock. It's a miracle few shades were restocked on my birthday! 

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bellisissima (Pale Neutral Pink), Patina (Dusty Rose) & Fiore (Hot Pink) ~ LOVE these! (From Sephora)

Chambor Extreme Wear Transfer Proof Liquid Lipstick in 461 (Coral) & 431 (Red) ~ I like the first one I got #403, so I couldn't resist getting a coral & a red. I think I'm done now ;p

MAC Face & Body Foundation in C2 ~ It's time to try out a MAC Foundation for realz. Another product that was OOS for months! I mean my shade C2.

Givenchy Prisme Libre Mat-Finish & Enhanced Radiance Loose Powder 4 in 1 Harmony ~ My favorite & the most pricey (Rs.4000). This has been on my wishlist since last year. There are 4 powders in this - beige, yellow, peach, bronze. (From Sephora)

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

Lipstick Fungus? Chambor Powder Matte Lipsticks

I started seeing the white stuff on these Chambor Powder Matte Lipsticks last year in Newcastle, and I thought: 'Oh, it must be frost from the cold.', like an idiot. It was freezing cold and snowing too, so I thought these lipstick froze...err...or something. Then recently, when I was taking out all my red lippies, I saw the white stuff looked thicker! I googled and people are calling the whiteness on lipsticks 'Fungus'. Ick! >.<
Shades: Rubis Rouge & Orange Flambe. I wore Orange Flambe in my Modern Cleopatra Look here.
I got them in late 2012, so it hasn't been that long for them to go bad. This is my first experience, and I'm quite put off. I won't bash the brand, because it's not like they did it intentionally, but I will not be buying these lipsticks again, that's for sure.

What do you think this white stuff is, ladies? Fungus or something else? If there are any Science nerds here, please enlighten us! =D

Chambor Rush Metal Nail Polish

Chambor Rush Metal reminds me of my favorite eye shadow from Urban Decay Naked Palette, Sidecar. It also reminds me of my other favorite cream eye shadow Maybelline Color Tattoo On And On Bronze. What I'm trying to say is, this is my favorite kind of metallic shade.
In these pics, I painted only 1 coat of it. It applied smoothly without any streaks. I think it lasted for 3 days without chipping. It was easy to remove, as well. No complaints about the quality.

Delhi HAUL! MAC, Deborah Milano, Maybelline, Chambor.....

My first haul in New Delhi. I went to Lifestyle yesterday, and I had to control myself! On the way to Lifestyle, I stopped by MAC just to see which collections are there, and was ecstatic to see a lipstick I wanted but was sold out in UK.

  • Chambor Nail Polish in Rush Metal, Rs.270 ~ This looked so gorgeous when the salesman swatched it on his nail...hehe...because I had red nail polish on so =D It's a metallic dull gold shade. Can't wait to wear it!
  • Maybelline Colorama Cremoso in Equilibrista, Rs.100 ~ Lilac color. 
  • Deborah Milano BB Cream, Rs.350 ~ I've been curious about this BB Cream since somebody mentioned it in our Facebook Page last year here. See, I read all comments =). Wearing it for the first time today, so will let you know what I think. I picked shade 01, and it looks fine on my skin tone. Btw, Bourjois BB Cream also felt good when I tested it, so I might get it next time. Do let me know if you've tried it.
I got 2 freebies with Deborah Milano products (extreme right):
  • Deborah Milano Ombretto Mono Hi-Tech Wet & Dry Eye Shadow #4 ~ This is a gorgeous green shade with gold veining (or veins?)
  • Debora Milano  Prêt à Porter Nail Enamel in Golden Sultan 04 ~ This is a jhatak gold shade that I wouldn't normally pic, but it's free! =)
  • MAC Pink Pigeon Matte Lipstick, Rs.990 ~ From MAC Strength Collection. This was launched with Party Parrot Lipstick (review here) before. Both are re-launched with this collection, so if you missed them last time, RUN!
  • Deborah Milano Rossetto Milano Red 2, Rs.650 ~ A nude beige shade. LOVE!
  • Deborah Milano Rossetto Milano Red 14, Rs.650 ~ Lilac shade. It's super pigmented and is more intense than MAC Pink Popcorn.
  • Deborah Milano Rossetto Shine Creator Lipstick in 10, Rs.625~ These are sheer lipsticks that are quite similar to lip butters. Very nice packaging, and there are a lot of pretty colors in the range.
*I have reviewed & swatched Deborah Milano Rossetto Milano Red #9 here

LOTD ~ Modern Cleopatra

[Letter body taken from TV series 'ROME'. Antony was so devastated, he killed himself after reading it. Truth was, Cleopatra was lying in the letter.]

Some believe that Cleopatra was the original Samantha Jones (Sex And The City). A while back, I took a Facebook quiz- 'Which Shakespearean woman/character are you?' - and I got Cleopatra (hoped for Juliet or Portia, dreaded the Lady Macbeth). That's how I know that. My old favorite tv series 'Rome' portrayed her as an insatiable pharaoh. She had short cropped hair & was addicted to opium. So, I guess the Facebook quiz was right. I'm kidding! My guilty pleasures are way too..... modern.
I guess you know what she used to kill herself? Ya, we won't go there *shudders*
