Haul lovers! Raise your hands!! I love other’s hauls and I love sharing mine too! So today I am here with my collective haul with items purchased over a period of 2 – 3 months. This haul has the beauty items that I really wanted since a long time, some discoveries and fashion items based on needs and occasions! So let’s jump into my shopping bag and see what all I got!
My first shopping was an order that I placed with Colourpop at the time of their Black Friday sale! I had never tried Colourpop makeup ever before and the sale was just so awesome and the first thing that I wanted to try was their liquid lipsticks. Colourpop came out with different sorts of bundles with a combination of different yet connected shades. I loved the bundles “Up and Away” and “Can you Knot”. They looked beautiful to me so I ordered them both. They were priced at $15 each so my total bill was for $30 and therefore shipping got free. Now the real problem arose when the order was dispatched from the U.S. but I couldn’t track it in India. After 15 days I started to research about my package and got to know that it might be stuck in customs. After a month was over I decided to pay a visit to the customs office. I had never been there so I had to google the places and went to and fro to different offices and then finally ended up in one where I was guided to go to the right place. Since Colourpop uses USPS for their deliveries and it’s not a courier company but a postal service, the orders or packages from them goes to the foreign office, even if it’s stuck in customs. I decided to go there some other day because it was quite far from my place. However, I couldn’t go there because I was traveling but fortunately after two months, the package got delivered to my home and there were no customs charged!! I was on the top of cloud 9!! Oh my God! I was really happy and relieved to finally receive my very first Colourpop order! Below are the pictures of what I received! 😀
The next beauty item I purchased was from Nykaa and this was a gift from my husband on our anniversary. I wanted to get the Lakme 9 to 5 mousse Lip and Cheek Colour and I ordered 5 shades of these! I ordered Rose Touch, Blush Velvet, Coffee Lite, Burgundy Lush and Fuschia Suede. I have already tried all these shades and they are beautiful! I will be posting a blog post and a video with the review and swatches of both Colourpop and Lakme lipsticks!
Since the time Lakme launched their Sabyasachi collection and Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte, I could never lay my hand on them. Sometime in January, I decided to go ahead and get them. I didn’t get the whole collection, but I got just two items. The Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte in Magenta Magic and Lakme Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick in Coral. Since the Sabyasachi collection is a limited edition one, I am not sure if the other shimmer brick will still be available, but if it is I might try and get the other one which is Pink and some other shades of Lip Pout mattes.
While I was wandering in the mall one day I stumbled upon a store called Utility and while strolling inside I found some beauty tools really affordably priced. I picked up an Oval Brush which I plan to use for contouring and a big and two small Beauty Blender Sponges. The bigger one priced at 111/- and the smaller ones were priced at 222/- for two of them. The oval brush was priced at 333/-. Such a unique style of pricing, right! 🙂 Will use them see how they work!
In December last year, I was off for a trekking trip and I wanted to get some really sturdy trekking boots. Something that I could wear on a trek or just on a casual day out as well! My choice of a store when it comes to boots is always Woodland! I found two pairs of boots that too on discount and fortunately the last pieces in my size only! So no doubt I got those. While I was there I also spotted a cotton jacket which caught my eye and my soul too! I loved it so much after I tried it on that I could not help myself, but to buy it!
After getting the anniversary gift from my hubby in the form of the Lakme 9 to 5 mousse Lip and Cheek Colour, I really didn’t need anything else. BUT! When you spot a Chumbak store with 50% to 70% off, can you really resist? Well, I clearly could not! So, I spotted these beautiful wedge heels in a lovely bright blue color with printed heels which had 50% off, I had no option but to get them! 😀 They fit like a dream and are very comfortable! Believe me or not, I needed a new wallet and when I saw this compact and very pretty wallet with an owl on it, I needed a wallet even more! 😀 There was no off on this one, but I loved it so got it! 🙂
This 22nd (February), it was my birthday and I had to go shopping again a gift from my hubby. This time I was clear I didn’t want any makeup but I wanted to invest in some good clothes and bags. I went to Lifestyle, which I always prefer for multibrand beauty and fashion shopping. I picked up two tops from Only, a khaki green colored shirt and the other knitted white top with anchor weaved in front. I loved the shoulder details on the Khaki shirt and the deep and “V” back with a string in the white top.
Lastly, I got two bags. The first one I picked up and got hooked to was this super lovely bag from Caprese! It has the beautiful box shape, golden zipper and option of short and long handles. The other one I got was from Ginger. This bag looked really pretty. The color is a beautiful royal blue, with stud details and bow in front. It is a sling bag which can be carried on semi-formal or formal occasions both. There was a 40% or 50% discount on this one, so I got a good deal!
That was everything I got in this haul and most probably I won’t be buying anything from March 1st, 2017 till February 28th, 2018. That is because I am vowing for a spend free year! I have become a little shopaholic lately and I really need a detox. 😀 But if I falter, you guys will know as I will do a haul post again! 😀 I hope I stick to my decision!! Anyway, I have also made a video of the haul and is attached below. Please watch it and subscribe to my channel RougePouts, if you haven’t already! I would love to know how you feel about this post and the video, so please do put in a comment below with your feedback! Have a lovely day!
