All things Pretty - Makeup

I do not own a large number of makeup products, but these are my favorites among the ones that I tried this year. I left out products I have not reviewed. And yes, yes, there is a lot of Chanel, I buy lots of Chanel, I buy only Chanel...etc., etc., sighhhh!

Have added links to the names, so you can click on the names for the reviews/more info.

Chanel Rouge Coco - a new line of lipsticks brought out by Chanel this year, they seem like the perfect lipsticks - creamy, moisturizing, not too glossy, but definitely not matte.


Chanel Rouge Coco - there's only ONE lipstick here, Cali!

Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss- If you like glosses, you will love Chanel glosses, but these are the best among the Chanel glosses.

Avon Pro-To-Go lipsticks - love because of the packaging. Just slide the button to get the lipstick to come of the tube, apply, push the button back to close the lipstick tube. One-hand application - gizmo-gadgety lipstick - I am fascinated :D

Chanel Ombre Essentielle single eyeshadow
- am still learning how to apply eyeshadows properly, and I find single eyeshadows the safest.

Chanel Ombre Essentielle - Khaki

Avon Glimmersticks - I have used up most of them, am planning to try some other brands now. Avon launched a new version of Glimmersticks which, from the reviews I have read so far, seem really good - have a shimmer to them, which these lack.

Chanel Mat Lumiere Powder Foundation - Great for oily-combination skin, especially in the summers. I don't use this anymore, mostly because I need something more moisturizing now that it's winter, also because the shade seems too dark for me now. I am hoping it gets usable again some time later. I paid a fortune for it!

Lakme Lip Palette - I like this because it's the first time I have used/seen/bought a palette. Other brands probably have much better quality, but for now, since this is the only one I have, I like it :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Doesn't Rati ever go there either? Send her there and ask her to get it for you :D but you have to swatch naaa..or I could have also got it for you from here..

    ReplyDelete
  33. hehe no it's not unreachable yaar.. yahi hai.. :P :D

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ohh then let Rati find out if its available, there are loads and loads of them in Bangalore so they should be, then you go there :D I am sure you will find something nice ...and then you preeeeeen

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's totally out of the way. you have to plan a trip to chanel boutique- one hour going- one hour staring at products- one hour shopping- one hour coming back. If by then it gets 5 in the evening, 2 hours coming back...
