In preparation for this week’s post, I’d already begun segmenting away a sizable chunk of my bank balance for a makeup haul. And I’m pleased I did just that. Here’s what made the come home cut…
L’Oreal Paris was my choice of the day. The one array that stood out to the beauty obsessed eye was that of the nail polishes. There were loads of them, I’d hazard a guess at a new shade for your toes and tips each week of the year if you’d be up for the challenge. Wrapped up in packaging that’s just dying to be papped for Pinterest, after adding a double digited amount into my basket I narrowed it down to three very predictable pickings: Black Swan, Blue Velvet and Boudoir Rose. Obvious choices for moi, but I pondered that there could be some possible Revlon dupes in there and at Rs.235 a pop they’re a slightly cheaper choice so I’ll get lacquering up and report back to you on that one.
Face product-wise I thought I’d road test their skincare combo – Go 360 Clean Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Scrub and Anti-Breakout Facial Cleanser, both Rs.399. I’ve yet to test these but with the cleanser having an air of an Avene Cleanser about it, I’ve got high hopes. It was rekindled love with my final purchase; Super Liner in Blackbuster. Hello Bourjois Mega Liner dupe! A glorified eye liner may seem like a strange addition but it perfectly rounds off my daily makeup stash and is a welcome replacement to my Maybelline Eyestudio Gel that occupied that spot before. Perfect.
It’s worth noting that a few purchases outside the L’Oreal Paris family were made, namely from a French created company that caught my eye called Vichy. But more on that next week – just building anticipation you know. And for the full scoop on L’Oreal Paris make a visit back here on Saturday where I’ll be chronicling my best Mumbai beauty spots, quite literally. Who’s up for a makeup fuelled field trip?
