New Haul on weekend

I bought some Colorbar cosmetics on the weekend. A listick in Natural shade and in Peach-pink combo with shimmer, a dark black Kohl stick, Peach coloured nail polish and a fabulous blush in Fucsia shade which I plan to use as a bronzer! The lipsticks are very pigmented and have a good amount of shimmer, but the texture isn't very smooth. Here are the pics and the swatches:

I don't use blush that often, since I have yet to find the right shade and the right manner of applying it. The favourite one is the Revlon palette, bought for Rs100 at Bhavani. It has shimmer in it, so it can be used as a highlighter too. The other one (on the left hand side) has a strong payoff, no shimmer and cost only Rs53! But I need to use it with powder foundation since the colours are too strong.


The ELF blush in Glow is the best one - it really has that effect, and most people notice it instantly. The one the left of ELF is part of a Color Institute set, it is nearly the same shade as my skin, so sometimes I use it under my eyes!

The tube on the right most side, is again, a part of the same shade, it's body glitter! The powder's really fine and reamins for hours. It comes in 2 shades - pink and whitish.

Sivanna Make up palette

The Sivanna make up palette cost me around 150 baht, in Bangkok. The eye shadows are pressed powder and have a good pay-off. They are accompanied with 2 shades of blushes. On the upper lid there is a small mirror and lipstains/glosses. These have a faint pleasant aroma and go on sheer. I use this palette most often.


A closer look at the shades.
