Well, today I’m posting my first haul post on BAA. I’ve really lacked the boost to post on BAA for the past few days due to my Mom being hospitalized and operated on and some more personal problems. Twenty Fourteen is not leaving a smile on my face while it’s ending. But still a Girl can forget all her problems following some hard-core retail therapy. Due to all this Hospital formality and as I had to take care of mom and my Grand mom, I was stuck indoors for a few days in a row. So I made the full of it and ordered some great stuff during GOSF and beyond . And also I’d really like to let you guys know about some awesome discounts offered by Cashkaro. Cashkaro.com is a great coupon and deals website and remains as my favorite from the plethora of coupons and deals website. Till today I’ve saved around 1000 INR while shopping online on top of all the individual discounts given by the Websites.
So without further delay, let’s see what all I picked up:
Haul From NYKAA:
I have some really bad memories of shopping from Nykaa but this time they kept their promise and I got my package within 3 days and that too in an untempered position . Last time I had a bad time when there were Kajals missing from my pack and things unwrapped and damaged. Thankfully mommy dear remembered and while accepting it checked the contents. Here’s What I picked up:
Lakme Eyeconic Kajal (Repurchasing):
Repurchasing because I totally love it. It’s dark, stays for long and is not harsh on my eyes. It was retailing at around 20% off, I guess so I picked up to keep it as a Backup of the present one.
Lakme Absolute Precision Liquid Liner:
I love my Maybelline gel liners, but when I’m in a hurry, I want some easy solution and after a bit of browsing online on Nykaa I chanced upon this one. It’s a felt tip liner in a sketch pen format.
Maybelline New Lasting Drama Gel Liner:
I totally loved my old Maybelline liner and was broken to pieces when it dried up last July. I was meaning to buy one, but sad every time I wanted to it was OOS. So I snatched it the moment I saw it.
Schwarzkopf Professional Spa Essence Hydrating Cream Masque For Dry Hair:
Basically, I don’t really have very dry hair, but during winter I feel the dryness increases and my hair looks dull and unruly. So to prevent that I bought this one . I am planning to buy the shampoo too . I will tell you gals this is a great product for home use. A thorough review will follow soon.
Vaadi Herbals Aromatherapy Body Oil With Pure Lemon Grass & Lily Oil:
This one was an impulsive buy as I was more keen on getting the Lavender one but I guess I love this one too. The oil is very light and the refreshing and soothing smell of lemongrass totally makes my day any day.
Christine Valmy Vegetal Peeling Mask:
This one is also a new brand I was eager to try out. I love peeling masks, and since my last endeavor with the Pond’s one ended a few months back I ordered this one. It’s a great product and I’m eager to try the Pores diminishing one soon.
L’Oreal Paris 6 Oil Nourish Conditioner:
A great conditioner. This is my third tube and I love this variation. It provides just the needed moisture and shine to the hairs and keep hair healthy. A review coming up soon.
Lakme Radiance Complexion Compact:
A backup product to keep in my daily makeup bag. I smashed the last two Lakme Perfect radiance ones while they were still new so bought an inexpensive one to keep in my handbag for touch ups. It’s not in the picture .
Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush Fresh Coral:
An impulsive buy again. I bought it only because I loved the packaging. But I love the formula too. Will be posting pics and review soon.
Haul From 20 Dresses.com:
I love 20Dresses and it’s one of my favorite shopping destinations. I will do a full shopping experience post later on but do check it out girls, they have a good collection of tops, accessories, nags, shoes, etc. And they give points for buying, inviting friends and on special occasions like Christmas and anniversaries. They also have this cute ritual of sending in a handwritten note with some small gifts as their token of appreciation. The notes are written by the stylists Alka and Sneha. I totally love this feature. And now more than the product I wait to see what I will get as a gift. Here’s what I got from them:
Cheeky Checks Slim Fit Pants
These were a suggestion from Mr. S and I was really eager to try out patterned pants . So we got this checkered pants for me from 20 dresses at 50% discount for around 600-650 bucks. They are actually Jeggings and are really comfortable to stay in a whole day. I love all of my pants and jeggings from 20Dresses and I have more than 6 pairs of them with me now.
Prancing In Polka Dress:
This one is such a cute dress. It’s a simple flowery dress with polyester lace on top and a layered skirt below. I love how it fits on the top and is flowy on the bottom. It accentuates my curves quite well and I simply love it.
Winter Is Coming Top:
It was 25th December and was itching to buy something when the Santa Clause heard my prayers and I got notified about the bonus 250 credits allotted to me. Each credit means 1 rupee so I used them and my other credits to purchase a knit top for 350 Rs . I wanted to buy some more, but since I’ve been spending too much on makeup I stopped myself from getting a few hair accessories.
White Cut Me Out Mini Sling:
I had some points which were about to Expire so bought this cute little sling bag which is perfect for that romantic lunch or coffee date. Holds only my small coin purse, my mobile and a lippie / compact . Very small but I love the laser cut pattern with the golden background. It’s classy and goes with so many colors.
Haul From Ebay:
I seldom buy makeup from Ebay. Mainly because I’ve had some mixed experience from them and most sellers charge extra for shipping. Gladly I found a seller who was selling Maybelline Colossal kajals at a great price with free shipping in Kolkata. I bought one for myself, and when it arrived, I checked if it was genuine. It was and I then ordered two more for myself.
Maybelline Colossal Kajal New 12 Hour Formula :
It is different from the old one (the 6Hr Formula) and a bit creamier too. I felt this one is better in terms of application, but with respect to staying power I will have to check it in the summer months because in winters all liners and Kajals will do great. The main challenge comes when Summer is here and so is the especially Kolkata Sultry weather.
Haul From Jabong:
Got some nail paints only from Jabong as I saw them on sale and I love trying out new shades. Got two shades only as I already have a few shades on hand.
Maybelline Color Show Nail Paint in Crazy Berry:
This is a nice change from my usual corals, pink and reds. The dark berry shade makes your hand look winter ready in moments and it suits a multitude of skin tones. The consistency is better, but sadly the shade chips in a day or 1.5 days.
Maybelline Color Show Nail paint in Keep Up The Flame:
This is a repurchase because I totally love the shade. Though the consistency of this shade is not that great. The shade chips within a day, but I simply love the bright red color it provides.
Haul From Amazon:
I wanted to get some books for myself, but since I’m yet to finish off the last ones I bought something I was looking for since a few days. I got a Kapersky Internet Security 1 User Pack for a great price of 480 Rs which was great . I’m using Kaspersky for my desktop, but for my Lappy Bitdefender. I feel Kaspersky works great with my Windows 7 PC and does not slow it down.
Haul From Home Shop 18:
This is my first time with Home Shop 18 and I was really scared of placing an order with them, but since my Dad wanted a Monte Carlo Sweater I placed it . The delivery was a bit delayed due to excessive backlogs with the carrier company, but it reached us safe and was the original deal. I was so relieved to see that the product was undamaged and Original. We got the Sweater at 50% discount and it was a real steal deal.
Haul From Myntra:
Recently I saw a massive sale on Myntra and could not stop myself from picking up a few things. Myntra is one of my favorite shopping destinations online. It has a great website and an equally attractive and user-friendly Android app . The customer service is superb and the delivery is quite fast too. Moreover, they were providing free shipping above 500Rs and free COD so I naturally got tempted.
Nivea In Shower body moisturiser Skin Conditioner :
I was really keen to try on the Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser Skin Conditioner, so I picked it up at a discounted price. It’s really a great product or my skin and since I’m usually too lazy to apply anything post shower it’s a lifesaver. The in shower moisturizer helps to keep my skin feeling plump and glowing without the greasiness of the usual lotions.
Playboy Play It Spicy Deo:
This is my favorite Spicy fragrance from playboy. I love it’s perfume and its staying power is really great, but I’ll have to let you know about the deodrant’s staying power in a few days.
Kook N Keech Disney Women Pink Printed Top:
Since childhood, I have been a great fan of Mickey mouse and their gang. Even when my sister used to watch Mickey mouse shows and cartoons I was really excited with them . I saw this cute little tee at the Myntra website and could not resist myself. I love the fit as well as the color and not to mention the awesome comfy fabric which will be great for summers.
