LOTD ~ A Liar, A Shopaholic Calendar.....

Squeezing 2 things in 1 blog post! One last LOTD (look of the day) in our apartment in Scotland, as we'll begin our journey back to India tomorrow. The other is about a calendar fit for a Shopaholic (read: everybody scrolling this page).....
Eyes: With some black and brown eyeshadows, I'm wearing an eyeshadow that I've been wearing a lot these days -  'Liar' from Urban Decay NAKED 3 Palette. Collection Black Gel Liner, False Lashes.

Face: I wore MUFE HD Foundation before I have to discard it, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer on spots, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer under eyes, The Body Shop Loose Powder.

Cheeks: Forgot to wear blush! =D
Got that top with brooch from Primark sale for only £3 | Rs.300 =))

Maybelline Baby Skin & Master Kajal Oriental Gold

Here are 2 newly launched Maybelline products that are part of my last UK haul. I thought I'd post quick pics & swatches in between the other last UK activities that have taken a toll on me lately (but packing going well so far)

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser ~ Lightweight primer for smooth, poreless looking skin. The first ingredient in this is Dimethicone (silicone), which usually breaks my skin out, but I'm thinking about using it minimally only on my large pores near the sides of my nose, fine lines on undereyes and frown lines, so let's see! *fingers crossed* . Price: £5.99 | Rs.607. *Only For Adults! =)
Maybelline Master Kajal Kohl Liner in Oriental Gold ~ Cream-stick liner. I think I'm gonna love this one! It is available in Pitch Black & Lapis Blue as well. Price: £7.99 | Rs.810.
I got them both from Superdrug. Buy 1, Get 2nd half off.
Swatches ~ Baby Skin, Oriental Gold Kajal

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.

The Countdown: My Last 1.5 Months In UK | Backup Favorites Shopping List

Ahoy! Can you believe we've reached this point? This blog post? Tickets back to India are already booked for early January. There's that bittersweet feeling again. I'm very happy to go back home, but I'll surely miss this place. Oh, boy! Now comes the saddest part about leaving dear UK. The shopping. No more Boots, Superdrug, New Look, H&M, PRIMARK!....no more easy access to all the new launches. So I'm stocking up on my favorite things, and I made a list. I don't know if I'll be able to take ALL of them, but here's hoping.....

Let's start from the back left corner:
  • False Eyelashes ~ It's damn hard to get quality falsies in India, so I'm getting LOTS. Mostly from Eylure, I think.
  • Blonde Hair Colors ~ Day before yesterday, I re-colored my hair with this Clairol Nice & Easy in 106 Natural Medium Ash Blonde, and I really like it. I'm getting a backup and maybe another one from L'Oreal too. *Light shades are hard to find in at-home hair colors in India.
  • Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes ~ I've gone through a couple of these. They are always 2 for 1 pound in Superdrug, and I always end up picking them up on my way to the till. I rarely use them on my face, coz I prefer to wash it properly, but they come in really handy when I'm swatching makeup on my arms. But they are nice for the face too, the few times I've used it- removes waterproof mascara and everything, and moisturizes face at the same time. But they are heavy, so I may be able to take only one.
  • Sleek Makeup Eyeshadow Palettes ~ I love Sleek eyeshadows, so I want to pick at least 2 more palettes. Don't know which ones, though. Decisions, decisions!
  • La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo ~ I have finished another tube, and I NEED more! I know it's available in India, but there's a good offer at Escentual right now, so I think I should pick a couple before I leave.
  • Rimmel Foundations/Concealer ~ I think I will get a Stay Matte Foundation for the hot Delhi summer; another shade of Wake Me Up Foundation; a backup of Wake Me Up Concealer (LOVE!)
  • Bourjois Color Boost Peach On The Beach ~ This is probably available in India, but I might get one with 3 for 2 offer at Boots. I really adore this shade. Swatched here
  • L'Oreal Paris Glam Shine Stain Splash ~ I hope these launch in India. I will get 2 more shades I really like, in case they don't!  Swatched here.
  • Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer ~ Most long-lasting concealer! When it sets, it sets. But I just hate that the concealer oozes out and makes it messy every time I finish using it! My shade is Medium 03. I'm getting 5 backups!
  • Rimmel Kate Moss Lipsticks ~ 1-2 shades more. I've swatched 06 & 107 here
  • Maybelline The Falsies Black Drama Mascara ~ This is a thicker version of The Falsies, which works better on my lashes than the original version (review here)
  • Topshop Cream Blush & maybe some other products ~  That is Head Over Heels....umm...and I carved a bow on it. No, I won't show you =D
  • Bio Oil ~ NEED this! My skin is stretching a lot these days, and sometimes itch like crazy! At first I thought my skin was heating up too much because of the radiators, but then I realized it's because I'm expanding...haha! I'm liking the fullness (meat), but we gots to keep the stretch marks away.
