Mini Haul

I’m a little late for this post. However I’ve been trying to keep my shopaholic gene under check for a while now. Hence I indulged in a mini haul albeit only essentials.

1)  Dove conditioner: I’ve used this 4-5 times as yet. And I’m loving it!  It makes my hair feel smooth and soft. Does not weigh down my hair. Washes off easily. Smells amazing! Out of  all the budget conditioners I’ve used, namely- sunsilk, tresemme, loreal 5oils ( these are the ones which worked for me),  I find this the best. 
     2) Marks & Spencer  Cocoa butter exfoliating body scrub:  Smells good. The fragrance lasts for about 10 mins after shower. The scent isn’t  too overpowering. It says cocoa butter but it does not smell anything like it. It’s more of a cologne-ish scent. This one’s quite artificial but subtle and rich. I like!

  3)  Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel liner: A re-buy. This is an updated version which claims to be more smooth, long staying. Smoother it sure is. The 'Stay' seems similar to the previous version. I like the cute glass container with the square base. The brush is the same.

    4)    Maybelline colorshow in ChocoSin- Got this free with the Gel liner. An offer @Nykaa. Me, personally would’ve never gone for this shade. But anything free is always welcome right? Thankfully didn’t receive a shade that I already owned. So shall try this soon. Let’s see how it turns out. If not, I know mom’s gonna like it:)

  5)   Maybelline Hypersharp Liner: A rebuy.  My HG Liner. I tried the Maybelline Colossal Liner. Despite the hype,  it did NOT work for me. At all. (READ ON to know why). So I had to re-buy this liner. Love Love LOVE this.

   6)      Selfie Stick: OK so this might’ve been an unnecessary buy. But I think it’ll be very useful when on trips. The remote only works with Android so I’ll have to check it on my man’s phone.  Guys please check beforehand if the remote’s compatible with your phone, while buying one.

Do let me know if you want a review in particular.

Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
Nominate seven bloggers who you feel deserve the award.

1. When was the last time you made an ass of yourself? 
Me: I do it ALL THE TIME. A typical Sagittarius at that. Just yesterday, I whatsapp'ed my boss an abusive message (by mistake ofcourse!!) which was intended for my best friend. However, he hasn't brought up that subject yet and i hope he never does :/
2. Deadlines amuse you or are you scared of them?
Me: I DONOT enjoy them for sure. But funny that I always end up doing things ONLY at the last minute. Do they have pills for procrastination?
3. Last time you laughed till your stomach hurt?
Me: Just yesterday. My cousin Bro manages to do that everytime!

Me: Lipsticks!
6. What cheers you up instantly?
Me: Frank Sinatra - I've got you under my skin. 
7. A book or movie which you couldn’t sit through?
Me: The movie Tees Maar Khan. It was probably worse than Ram Gopal Varma's Aag. I was done right after the song "Sheila" which is probably in the first 10mins of the movie.
8. Bad habit which you are trying to give up?
Me: Did i mention "procrastination"??
9. Beach or mountains?
Me: Can I keep both?!? But if I had to.. like HAD to choose... then beach. I have an affair with the water...
10. The song which you are humming now? 
Me: I'd tried so hard not to give in...I said to myself, this affair never will go so well.
