I am back with a haul post!!

Hello Everyone

I hope you are all healthy and happy. 

First of all I am extremely sorry for not being in action for last 2 weeks. I had so many guests at home and then I had to travel for almost a week and I was in an absolute spin. Between all this running around one great thing that has happened to me is that I have purchased my own house and I will soon be shifting their. It feels like heaven to own your own apartment and when it's your first home it's always special. I am now busy doing interiors, not the entire thing at one stretch but bare minimum to make it livable. 

So, here I am with a haul post. I had an aunt visiting me from US last week and I requested her to do some shopping for me and bought some Urban Decay & NYX goodies. Also, I purchased an Estee Lauder Double Wear Creme eyeshadow from it's store in Mumbai. So lovelies, if you want to know more about these products read on :)

I was wishing for UD 24/7 eyeliner pencils in different colours for a long time now. So, I thought of buying UD 24/7 JACKPOT, which has 9 coloured pencils of travel size, ranging from gold, browns, blues, green, purples and greys & a one full size pencil in 'zero'. So, in all 10 pencils which I guess is a good bargain for a price tag of USD 39 and also I didn't have to pay shipping charges :D :D

I need not mention here that UD pencils last long & do not smudge the whole day. Super creamy and smooth to apply.

The other product which my aunt shopped for me are NYX Jumbo Eyepencils. Shades which I bought are Gold which is not a 24 carat pure gold but peachy-bronzy gold, Pots and Pans is a silver colour, Iced Mocha taupish-bronze and Lavender is frosty lavender. They are all very pretty shades and are very pigmented, smooth on application, but they crease. They creased even after applying UD primer potion as base in 3-4 hours. Probably during summers this is an absolute no no for girls with oily lids. But the colours are really pretty and when used as base the eyeshadow colours pop. The pencils costed around USD 3.99 each, which is very cheap. The entire purchase from US costed me around INR 2000 @ forex rate of INR 45 for a USD.

Another product which I purchased recently is Estee Lauder's Double Wear Creme Eyeshadow in Precious Jade. It's a pretty olivish/ jade colour with golden sheen to it. It goes on very smoothly and doesn't crease at all for around 7-8 hours w/o base. It is such a pretty colour that it can be worn on it's own or as base. It looks very beautiful with MAC's Sumptuous Olive. It comes in a nice glass jar with a golden screw top cover. It's a pricey product and costed me INR 1450 but it is worth the price. I haven't worn it for more than 7 hours at a stretch and it didn't fade or crease. I am in love with this product. 

I am extremely excited about the products and enjoying using them. I hope it was helpful to some of you and hope you will go and try some of these products. Which one are you going to try??

I had started Adorable Summer Colours series before I vanished for 2 weeks, which I am going to continue with some bold looks. So, hold on for some more fun, till then ... xoxo
