Secret Brush

Oval makeup brushes.

 Once frowned upon. Howww???, they did that hand gesture. Toothbrush, they mocked.

Yes, I was one of they. Until I decided to try of of said toothbrushes....

 The Etude House My Beauty Tool Secret Brush 121 Skin

What it is: It's s synthetic brush for applying cream products, as well as powder products - no hard rules here.

What I LOVE about it: The brush blends base products effortlessly. The sponge is like a polishing tool, because my skin looks like polished wood - what I mean is 'sheen' - after I give it a good buff with this & it makes all my pores non-existent.

 The only complaint I have is that when I'm using the sponge, it sometimes comes off because it doesn't fit into the handle tightly enough. 


A Lipstick To Remember [Lipstick Day]

Wishing all you Lipstick Princesses a very HAPPY LIPSTICK DAY! =)

If you're reading this from a land where it's no longer 29.06.15, please forgive me. It's been a looong day!


Etude House Princess Happy Ending Collection Haul & Photos

Etude House meets Disney's Fairytale Princesses - Snow White, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine. This Limited Edition collection is another one of Etude House's many gorgeous creations. They outer boxes are made like little CUTE! And I have to mention again how awesome the reasonable prices are! Why isn't this brand in India yet???!!!
The only sad thing is, I missed out on the lipsticks because they sold out everywhere. I know I'm still on my Lipstick Ban, but the packaging is too pweety! (Pic below). I also didn't get anything from the Jasmine pieces - a mascara & nail set.
Etude House Princess Happy Ending Belle Rose Cheek Blusher ~ The packaging! ♥_♥

Price (each): $9.26 = Rs.574

I don't know if I'll ever have the heart to touch that design!


I Transform Into Cersei Lannister ~ GAME OF THRONES

"When you play the Game Of Thrones. you win or you die.
There is no middle ground."

Cersei Lannister: A character created by George R.R. Martin in his books A Song Of Fire And Ice, which has been adapted into one of the most popular tv shows, GAME OF THRONES. Cersei has a twin brother, Jaime Lannister, with whom she had been in an incestuous relationship since they were adolescents. They both have a younger brother, Tyrion Lannister (the little man up there & my favorite character in the show), whom Cersei loathes because their mother died while giving birth to him.

New Cosmetic Organizer Tray

A recent find that I'm absolutely in love (lob!) with is this organizer. Don't mistake it for those acrylic 'Made In China' ones. This one says it is Made in Taiwan. The quality is top-notch! Super clear, shiny & thick, much much better than the 24 Lipstick Holder I got from Ebay (Remember that? Posted here). I was over the moon when I found it in a shop, that too amongst many other designs/types!

I have not thought about what I want to keep in it, so I just arranged random things for now just to show you how they look.


Inexpensive Acrylic Lipstick Stand For Rs.273 | $4 | £2

You know what is the best thing about moving back to India and finally settling down in one city? Now I get to shop for home stuff! Haven't got a home yet, haha (sigh, new new problems keep arising), but the new furniture has started to come in. For over a year, I'd browse Ebay for makeup storage things, and just look longingly at them coz I couldn't buy these bulky things in UK. Now I'm like a cow who'd been locked in a shed for too long!

So to kick-start the makeup storage items, I ordered this Acrylic Lipstick Holder/Stand. Just one because I wanted to see the quality first .
It can hold 24 lipsticks.
I love that it's step-step (yes, step-step) and not flat.


Etude House XOXO Minnie Collection Photos

Finally I took Etude House XOXO Minnie Collection out of the box! Although I look at them almost everyday since they arrived. Mr.CZ complained several times about the box always being on the dining table, and I gave the same reply: "Because I have to click!" I think he had been waiting for this post....hehe.

I have not used most of the products, except for two of them. I can't bring myself to using the other 5, coz I like them looking all new and shiny. I'll play the "collector" card again this time. No swatches, but hope you'll also like just looking at them =D


Etude House Minnie Mouse Collection ~ Haul

My Facebook Status, 15th October :
My heart....
in slow motion....
beating.... I'm about to click 'Proceed To Checkout' on Ebay....entire Limited Edition makeup collection in my cart. Didn't "consult" with Mr.CZ first....


{to be continued}

♥ CZ.


I clicked on it.....beating.....I was on the 'Confirm Payment' page within the next few minutes.....beating....Okay, maybe I should remove some items, and order them another time. That way the total amount will be split up and ....No, I want them ALL!  They all belong too-gad-der (together)The phone rang suddenly! It was Mr.CZ saying he'll be home in 5 mins. It was as if he knew I was about to do something behind his back! Long story short, I left the payment page as it was & waited till he got home before clicking the final button. Yes, I chickened out, sheesh!  =D
You don't know how much I wanted to talk about this collection! To say that they're on their way to meeeeee! But you know I'm kind of superstitious. Jinx and all that. What if I post in my blog, and the products don't turn up at my door? I thought, don't count your  chickens  Minnie Mouses before  they  hatch  postman delivers them.


I Must Have This New Innovative Avon Mascara.....

I'm always on the lookout for the next mascara that's going to give me the eyelashes of my dreams. So when I saw something this gadgety, I had to do my research. I liked what I saw, so I'm sharing it with you, in case you didn't already know a mascara like this exists.
Claims: This breakthrough mascara provides 24-hour volume, leaving lashes darker, denser and more dramatic. Get ready for a corner to corner lash transformation with our first ever Wonderbrush. 
The Wonderbrush bends and adjusts to multiple angles capturing every lash, top to bottom. The unique brush fits the natural shape of lashes, coating them evenly with formula from root to tip. The extra surface area of the Wonderbrush bristles are designed to deliver 40% more mascara to the lash. Mega Effects Mascara provides a clump-proof, sweat-proof, non-flaking and non-smudging experience. Ophthalmologist-tested. .317 oz. net wt. 
I put it on my wishlist after I saw this demo video on Youtube. 

Price ~ £10 | Rs.1004. But you'll get it for £6 | $10 from Ebay. I don't know any Avon representative here, so I'll probably go with Ebay.

Have you tried it? I wonder how much it costs in India?


Tony Moly Cat Chu Wink Lipstick Pink Wink ~ Lipstick In A Cat!

There are many superstitions surrounding black cats. The most common one I grew up with was: It's bad luck when a black cat crosses your path, so you have to spit 3 times before you keep walking, otherwise something bad will happen.
I know, very stupid. But when you're a kid, and you see grown-ups spit, you spit! (Remember Joey and that actor in that World War I movie in Friends?)
Nowadays, I do see black cats crossing my path quite often. Do I spit 3 times? Of course not! I stopped believing in superstitions that require me to do unladylike things like that in public, and potentially mess up the lipstick I'm wearing.
That's why I had no qualms about bringing a certain black cat onto my vanity......
Tony Moly Cat Chu Wink Lipstick ~ There are about 7 shades available, and I picked 02 Pink Wink, a coral pink shade. It's all about the cat, so I won't pretend I got it for the quality of lipstick, but I have to say it's pretty good. The formula is lightweight, sheer, balmy/moisturizing & easily wearable. It has a faint floral scent that doesn't really transfer to the the lips.

What do you think about the packaging?  


Online Haul ~ Kawaii Makeup & La Roche-Posay Skin Care Products

For those who don't know, Kawaii means cute/pretty/adorable. The term is popular in Japanese culture. I love everything kawaii. It's the only reason I want to go to South Korea someday. If I ever create a beauty brand, it will be kawaii-ish. If! I said if.

I did a little online haul recently, and the packages just reached me. You know, our postman sometimes leaves our parcels under the doormat outside our front door. Very thoughtful of him.

  • Tony Moly Cat Chu Wink Lip Stick ~ Lipstick in a black cat. Super cute! I will post pics & swatches. I want a lipstick in a bunny too now!
  •  Etude House Portable Ribbon Brush ~ Oh my bows! How cute?! But do you notice that it's lopsided? I'm talking to the seller about it, and I'm hoping for a replacement.

All those are from Ebay. I won't mention seller until I'm happy with my lil' pink bow brush =D
On to the La Roche-Posay skin care products. Yes, I'm so into this brand at the moment =) 
  • La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo ~ My 2nd tube. I didn't use it for a week or so (because my first tube finished before I purchased another), and I immediately got 3-4 pimples. Also, I noticed a big difference in my skin texture when I used this & when I didn't. You can read my previous post about it  here. Price: £9 | Rs.840.
  • La Roche-Posay Biomedic  Pigment Control Concentrated Conditioning Serum ~ Very excited to try this out. It's got Kojic Acid (a safer alternative to Hydroquinone), Glycolic AcidAHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid). All ingredients to target dark spots & pigmentation. No Parabens. Price: £20.67 | Rs.1930.
  • La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water for Sensitive Skin ~ Soothes & softens sensitive skin. I just got this mainly because I wanted the bill to reach the amount that equals free shipping, but I hope it'll hydrate my skin and act as a setting spray when I'm using the other two. Price: £2.33 | Rs.218.

These are all from Escentual, which is currently offering up to 1/3 off on all French Pharmacy brands - La Roche-Posay, Bioderma, Vichy, Avène, etc.
I saw that they also ship to India for a shipping fee of about Rs.275, if you're interested.
