A Collective Haul 2012

Most of you know I don;t haul these days. I am focusing on cleaning up my stuff. But a girl's got to shop ! And why would I entirely cut if off? I am satiating the shopaholic in me not only by getting the stuff I always should have, but also getting the stuff that my whole family can use. Si, My first purchase from healthkart.com this year.

I have a nice experience to share

I got Pond's Radiance Talc in Sandal, A Sunsilk thick and long shampoo( which I have finished up as well), a Sunsilk Damage reonstruction Conditioner, NYX Round Lipstick in Milan, Fabindia clove gel for acne prone skin, a Faces Go-Chic Lipstick and A Faces Glam on eyeshadow Mono in pure Gold.

I did not order the Faces products first. It was the lipstick. But when the order arrived, the lipstick was a mess. The bullet was broken and in the heat, the lipstick bullet and broken beyond redemption. Who likes to get a ruined lipstick? Also, the soap that I was supposed to get, was missing. When I complained along with the image of the lipstick, the friendly customercare service, asked for sometime and then added the whole amount as my store credit.
The telephone connection was a disaster, but when I emailed, I got almost an immediate response. For all the pros and cons, this experience has really impressed me.

With the store credit, I bought the lipstick and the eye-shadow.

Next is my another haul which mainly consists of brushes

VOV Brush kit

It;s very difficult to clean brushes every time you use them. Besides, on occasions, I do makeups on my cousins etc. I am a bit picky about hygiene so I thought of getting another set. But I did not wan;t to shell out something big since it's only occasionally i need. besides, these brushes are not really that bad! I bought this whole set for 70 bucks! yes, that;s true. The blush brush is just too soft. If you want to put on your bronzer or highlighter, it does an amazing job. For blushes, it;s ok. You have to build on the color gradually since it is too soft to pick up much at one go. But the result is beautiful. The flattish brush, I don;t know what it;s meant for, does a jod job at blending concealers, esp underneath the eyes. It has become one of my favorites. the angled liner... believe it or not, I would bodly compare it with ecotools Angled liner brush. Yes, you heard me right.

Bourjois paris Powder brush ( Kabuki) in medium

I also bought a Bourjois paris cosmetics Powder brush in medium size. It's not the ideal kabuki I think, but does a good job and is very very dense.

 At the counter, I also saw a Smokey eye brush from Bourjois which I was always hoping to launch and it finally did! It has a very good smudger at one end and a nice fat short bristle smudger and applicator brush on the other. And guess the price? 150 bucks!

Oriflame Blending brushes and an eyebrow groomer ( which I ordered by mistake). These have small fluffy dome heads and a Bourjois Khol and Contour pencil in Black. This is the special extra large size.
