Lakme Absolute White Intense Wet & Dry Compact (Beige Honey)

Wait. Can you wait? Thank you. I'm not done yet with my Lakme love. Guess what was in store for me after I picked up Lakme 9 to 5 Lip & Cheek Color & Botaneco Trio Oil Body Lotion? Honestly, not something I expected. Not at all. Like they always say, expect the unexpected when you least expect, Lakme SA walked up to me and handed over this Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact. Seriously everyone, I went like, oh-wow, oh-my. Alright, alright, I get it. I hear you. Obviously I'm aware it’s just a tester. So what? Why shouldn’t I pinch myself? It’s a new, untouched, unspoiled virgin compact. All I had to do is get the casing. But I didn't. Whatever for? I am not one of those vein-pots who can't hold themselves from powdering in the public, and this compact, call it a two way cake or dual purpose powder if you want, I think is still well secured in the rather study plastic casing for avoiding dust from travelling inside. The best part of it all, it came with the same velvet black pouch you will get when you purchase a new one.

Maybelline Color Sensational Velvet Matte Lipstick

Beauty advisers I realise tend to talk hell of lot as though beauty is at our finger tips. These so called "Ms or Mr Know It All" generally preach that “fifties is the new thirties", hei-hello!! I like to believe so. If I had lotsa money, if I am a superstar, if I have bags of beauty goodies like them or if I am a lady of leisure, of course looking forever young forever is absolute. But the real-time reality seriously is otherwise. For the ordinary women like me or for every other ordinary married woman, money comes first before anything else (TheBalm timeBalm). Additionally, we work to contribute towards household expenses, we mostly solely manage our home affairs and kids, the biggest challenge I bet is managing the nut-case husband. Grrrr!! Actually, I do have a whole lot more to vomit out especially on husbands, but I think its best we don't divert to the never ending topic. Lets for this moment in time, temporarily ditch aside husband's antics because you know why? At the end of a tiring day coupled with limited budget, I can understand why perking beauty with a red lipstick is completely forgotten.

Lakme Enrich Satin Lip Color

What did Nava K do next once her mouth, throat and tummy had heartily tucked into the array of food in Taste Enclave Classic Pavilion? She decided to walk Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. After all, she, yes its me alright, I think this is my first ever in this shopping mall. Look, I'm being honest. Thus, I thought I might as well for the next an hour wash my eyes on the retail outlets, albeit, confirmed, I can't afford any of the designer brands. Of course, Guardian Pharmacy is affordable for poor people like me. Guardian, by the way is my favourite store where I pick up my beauty products. Pavilion Guardian definitely carries aplenty more stuffs compared to the one in my neighbourhood. Walking inside, honestly, I literally went bongus. Bongus, mind you. You know me and beauty skin care craziness? Oh-my! The first brand that caught my eyes was non other except Lakme. Lakme! Believe me. An unforgettable brand. Wow! How can I forget Lakme. I practically grew with Lakme during my early twenties. Such a major sensation amongst the Indian women and upcoming women like me once Lakme hit our shore. Lakme, those years was of a similar marketing concept like Avon. Basically, its a direct selling brand. Sign up as a dealer, you will be given samples, thereafter, its you and closing sales for incentives.

Maybelline Color Sensational Red Porcelain Lipstick

Lets get one thing straight. I think all of us beauties, including those who don't use make up at all, I'm sure all of us must have heard of Maybelline? Yes, Maybelline brand. Been in the market, I actually have not been keeping tap, but I know Maybelline, can we call it a pioneer brand? If you agree so, I don't mind going along with you. Frankly speaking, I can't even recall which products from Maybelline range I have already tested tried. Seriously, I can't remember beauties. Nevermind. I doubt its important, or maybe we should put the blame on my memory lapse, shall I now introduce to you Maybelline Color Sensational Red Porcelain Lipstick? Whether you agree or not, I am going to anyway. Akin a magnet attraction the moment I stood in front of the counter, I told myself that its about time I get a red lipstick. I really needed one. Lipsticks by the way don't last forever. Whether you use them or not, they can't sit on your dressing table forever. Two years the most, you better throw them away. Then again, I can only advise you. If you still insist on using, you better be prepared for the consequences. Swelling or rashes are potentially the obvious.

Body Shop Brow & Lash Gel

Makeup and yours truly? What shall I say? Maybe I'm a minimalist when makeup is concern. Not the case when I was younger. Eye shadow, blusher and whatever else I fancied. But over the years, maybe a tiny bit of makeup, like lipstick or lip gloss, of course I love my face powder and I have this thing about emphasizing my lashes. Curled and dark lashes wouldn't you agree can wake up our eyes? If you are asking me, I so agree. Not in the context of thick layering of mascara, but a product which can do something of the same sort in a natural manner. Pretty much summing up the reason why I purchase this Body Shop Brow & Lash Gel (Body Shop Vitamic C Reviver Duo). Eyes again (La Colline Cellular Eye Mask)? Sincerely.
