MAC Toledo Collection Haul


MAC Isabel & Ruben Toledo Collection launched in India on Friday, 24th April. I had only one product in mind - this Blush Ombre. I've wanted one for a very long time, ever since they were first launched with some old MAC collections. That's why I was waiting for this collection to reach India.

I was so scared that they'd be SOLD OUT before I got to the store (You know how it is with MAC Limited Editions here!), but I was lucky to get the last pieces. LAST pieces! Just hearing those words made me shiver a little bit ;p

I picked up Ripe Peach & Kindergarten Red....


Ripe Peach ~ Light Coral

Kindergarten Red ~ Crimson Into Pale Nude

Both are so so beautiful & I can't wait to wear them!

Price ~ Rs.2400 (Each)

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 books....so 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!

MAC The Simpsons Collection Photos & Swatches

I'll admit, I'm not much of a Simpsons fan. I found them cute and all, but I never really watched the series. Then I met someone who's hooked to the show - my Mr.CZ. Boy, is he obsessed! Yes, all the DVDs & figurines in the photos are his. I remember he'd start laughing, and tell me about something funny Homer did/said ("Mmm....bacon.")
Even though I would never skip this collection, I'd say he wanted me have it more than I did. So, in a way, they're for him. Which is weird to say because we are not talking to each other right now.... haha! ;p

Anyways, I'll dedicate this post to him.....and all you other Simpsons fans! Hope you'll like the fun pictures, I really enjoyed clicking them. Cartoon makeup collections are so FUN!  =D
On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, M·A·C honours the one, the only, THE SIMPSONS. We are celebrating the country’s favourite animated family and its beloved matriarch Marge with a vibrant colour collection that screams That Trillion Dollar Look. Our classic formulas and finishes you love are to blue dye for with an animated twist. All in limited-edition packaging that can only be described in one word: Eeeeexcellent. ~ MAC.

Just Arrived ~ MAC The Simpsons Collection


All the way from USA.

Because....well..... I don't trust MAC India & I didn't want to risk missing out on this CUTE collection =D 

We MAC-holics here are tired of seeing 'SOLD OUT' on LE products most of the time - even on the launch day! Some have come to think that maybe....maybe....they only bring the display of Limited Edition Collections to India just for advertisement. I can't say for sure, coz I haven't been here for some time. Let's see what happens with this collection, shall we? =)

MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection Haul, Photos, Swatches

Most times, you go to MAC specially to check out a collection - All the products you want are SOLD OUT!
Sometimes, you walk into MAC without a purpose - You are greeted by a brand new collection you didn't even know had launched, and most products haven't sold out yet!

I fall in the latter category this time. I wasn't going ga-ga over this collection when it came out, and didn't have a wishlist. But when I ran my fingers over the water droplets....well....

My MAC Lipstick Collection

I know, I know, I disappeared for more than 3 days again! That's why I wanted to do a big post today. Did you know I'm apartment hunting these days? A lil' more on that at the end of this post.
Immediately after reaching home yesterday, I suddenly wanted to do a MAC Lipstick Collection. It was evening time, and although I spent over half an hour clicking, I ended up not liking the pictures. So these are the 2nd batch, and I'd gone out in the garden to set them up. Luckily, only 2 people saw me lining up the lippies like it's the most important job in the world - the mali (gardener) & one man talking on his phone on a terrace next door. Maybe more people saw, but I was lost......

I arranged them color-wise, so you can compare between similar shades.

Beauty Addict And Her Stash To Pack | OOTD

Leaving UK in less than 2 weeks now, so that means these are crazy packing times! Last night, I was home alone. Mr.CZ had gone to Newcastle and he'll be back till later this evening. I layed almost all my makeup and beauty products on the bed in our guest bedroom. This bed just has a sheet, and we didn't get any pillows and whatnot for it because, you know, no point. These are most of my beauty products (save for some skin & hair products I keep in the bathrooms) that I'm packing to take to India.
I decided to throw myself into the MESS, because it's always been my dream to sleep on/next to a pile of makeup products..hehe. Btw, I kept my left knee bent in most pics, coz I was trying to hide a a big (healing) bruise. I fell down on the bridge a couple weeks ago. Always been a quiet bridge, but that day, a couple was walking towards us, and they saw me fall. Because that's how life is - you never fall without an audience.

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

My Current/Overseas Eyeshadow Palette Collection

I decided to start wearing eyeshadows that I never wear, because I realized I was stuck on 5-10 neutrals. I took out all my palettes from their drawer to pick them out...... and that led to this post. 
These are all the eyeshadow palettes I have with me here. 6 of them I took from India, the rest I got from UK.
  1. Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette ~ Swatches here.  (Cheaper DUPE:  MUA Undress Me Too Palette.)
  2. Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette ~ Swatches here . (Cheaper DUPE: MUA Undressed Palette.)
  3. Stila In The Garden Palette ~ Brand New. Never Used. 
  4. MAC Fabulousness 5 Neutral Eyes from Holiday Collection '12 ~ Swatches here
  5. Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette ~ Swatches here.
  6. Inglot 4 Square Freedom System Eyeshadow Palette ~ Swatches here.
  7. Inglot Candy Inspired Palette ~ Swatches here.
  8. MUA Poptastic Palette ~ I have swatched this palette last year, but never posted pics.
  9. Sleek Makeup Oh So Special i-Divine Palette~ Swatches here.
  10. Sleek Makeup Candy i-Divine Palette ~ Swatches here
  11. Inglot 10 Square Freedom System Eyeshadow Palette ~ Don't hate me for placing it upside down. It's also still brand new & unused. Photos coming soon, promise. I'm dying to use it!

Uh-oh, odd number! Must must even it asap. 
Many readers have emailed me asking about eyeshadow palettes - inexpensive ones. I'd suggest MUA ones or these big palettes I've written about a long time ago.....
Swatches here


If you want colorful, the 120 palette is the best....
I find these palettes very useful. Sometimes I wish I had them with me, especially when I need a specific color that's not in any of my palettes, and I don't want to buy singles. You'll find them on Ebay, KK Center HK, BH Cosmetics. Back when I got them, they used to cost under Rs.1000.
