Weekend Shopping: Maybelline and Revlon

It's not that much of a shopping, really - just two things I picked up while at CVS.

My Mahagony seems to be a favorite from the Maybelline Color Sensational range of lipsticks, so I picked that up.  I also bought a lipgloss from Revlon - ColorStay Glacis Mineral - Continuous Coral.  It's a bright pink-coral colour, and I usually don't pick up such bright colours, but I thought a gloss is quite safe to try since the colour would be sheered down quite a bit.

So that was my weekend shopping - from last weekend, actually :D  What about you..any shopping sprees planned for the weekend?

  5. Hahahaaaaaaaa Reeeeeeeeeeeeteeeeeeeeeeeeeekaaaaaaaaaaa...I thought I needed some superstrong sunglasses when I tried this on at home :D :D :D But I think it can be used..as long it's just a stain on your lip. It was quite a shock the colour..but I was expecting it so I escaped a heart attack :D

  9. I wonder if the Indian and phoren versions are the same shade..sometimes the same names are slightly different shades..or so I feel :D

  10. I tried My mahogany here at Central But just couldn't decide if the color looks good on me. Store lightings are so bad! Do let me know if it suits you. Coz I think we are similar toned.

  17. Varshini swears by My Mahagony and is the shade similar to MAC Cosmo?

    ReplyDelete
  18. It is a similar shade, but I haven't used or swatched Cosmo so no idea. There are swatches comparing the two online.

  19. I'll wait for your review of the gloss Rads

  25. i just bought a pair of jeans over the weekend. the sale season is going on here and i HATE it. the shops look like bhindi bazaar and they stink. sale means bringing out all stinky clothes and throwing it on big beds...grrr... i wanted to take a chotu break over the weekend. i rather ended up super tired and exhausted.

    you saw the revlon colorburst glosses. sabrina is all gaga over it.

  26. I sawwwwwwwwwwwww...they looked superawesome good..but know what Rati..this one gloss I got na Revlon wala...is stinky...like plastic something smell. I dont know what's with my nose...what ppl love I will be like stinky..and that Maybelline everyone says smells strong..I couldnt even smell the toffee smell properly :|

    ReplyDelete
  27. chee chee... i think they have this kinda smell in one of their lipstick also.. guess from the same range.

    haan maybelline has that coconutty smell.. am not too fond of it. bt the lipstick is ncie os kinda forgive it for that one. :P

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think na the formulation is different here, though, cos I could get the smell only because I sniffed so much..is not at all strong like how everyone says in India...either that or it's a really old lippisteek i got :|

    ReplyDelete
  29. The Maybelline one I was talking aobut..i had to sniff so much to get the smell..but the Revlon one is superyucky :D
