2016 nail polishes swatch

Fellow bloggers aside, you guys are my biggest enablers. The comments you leave with suggestions of products you think I’ll love, Facebook messages giving me a nudge to indulge and tweets opening my eyes to tempting special offers left right and centre. Well the latter ended up in a snappy Nykaa order the other day when they were offering some amazing deals; ordered at lunchtime and in my hands by 10 am the following day – that’s what I like. The purchase in question – nail polishes…

I LOVE Bio-Oil. If it wasn’t ~Rs.400 for a small bottle, I would like literally bathe in it. I know it’s not ‘natural’ by any means – it’s definitely fragranced and coloured and has stuff in it other than just oils. And yeah, one of the first ingredients is mineral oil…but this stuff works.

I don’t need much of an excuse to find a justification for treating myself. I’ll pick up a tub of Baskin Robins’ cause I woke up to my alarm without snoozing it in the morning (not the most regular occurrences). The excuse for my latest purchases? It was Friday. I think I’ve reached a new low. But to be fair I did have Rs.100 off with my Lifestyle Inner Circle card – if you haven’t got one and spend a small fortune in there, what are you thinking? Get on it! So what did I purchase? Well let me tell you…

Maybelline Colorshow Burgundy Blend

It was never going to be long before a berry burgundy lippie popped up on the blog, was it? Pathetic. Ah well, sharing the love and all that – a new appreciation for ‘out-there’ lip colours has been birthed but I’m always going to have a special place in my heart for anything toned with B.B (berry burgundy). Enter the Maybelline Lipstick in Burgundy Blend

It takes quite a lot for me to write about a hand cream because I don’t often find them that exciting. And because I am addicted to my body products, I find that I usually use those on my hands too and it is fairly adequate. However, I have completely fallen for the The Body Shop Honeymania Hand Cream because it is such a delight to use.

It seems I’m on a personal mission at the moment to pack my makeup drawer till the point of overflow – after my M&S purchase (post here) and this Max Factor badboy I’m now unable to close the drawer. Great, I think it might be time for a clear out. But after a quick dash round Lifestyle, I ended up with this mascara making its way into a Lifestyle bag…

trip to maybelline

When something big happens in my life, I treat myself to a ‘commemorative’ lipstick. It’s true. I finish my last exams at college and end up walking through the checkouts with Rimmel’s Summer 2011 Collection in my hand, I graduate and a Faces Go Chic Lipstick is mine, every Diwali I pick myself up a Revlon lipstick. OK perhaps the last example is a little tenuous, but you see where I’m going here – I like any old excuse to pick up a lipstick. With my brother’s impending plans to fly the nest and move out (which has rapidly swooped into a slot next month) and my Dad’s Birthday (which was last week, eek), I figured that was enough justification to treat myself to a Maybelline lipstick or two…
