EOTD Grey-pink

Matching the colours to my shirt..
Grey on the lower half of the upper lid, and then pink shimmer on the outer 1/3 rd of the upperlid and lower lash line. A taupe with shimmer on the crease and cream-shimmer on the browbone to highlight. Lined with liquid liner on the upper lid, with a flick at the end (I don't think it is very visible in these photos). Sorrt for the quality of the pics, they're from my camera-phone.

Olive green FOTD

Here's the slightly blurry FOTD -I tried to match my eyes to the t-shirt I wore. I mixed the CD bright pink lippie with the Revlon Cherry gloss and it looked fab!

Weekend Haul III

Finally, I decided to get my lazy self to the shopping mecca of the town, Comm St, and indulged myself in a lil bit of shopping. I bought 2 thin summer t-shirts, one white print kurta, 2 peasant type summer tops and one shirt-dress (that will be worn over jeans)! Annnnd I found my holy grail in lipgloss (realising later I'd already bought it 4 years ago for my lil sister). It's value for money, non-sticky, mildly fragrant (I don't really like any fragrance in my lip products) and in a lovely shade that completely complements me.
Interested? It's Revlon's Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Cherry (for Rs.310 for 4.5 ml). It's a lovely reddish-coral shade, goes on thinly, with no shimmer and no stickyness (not sure what the spelling is)! I applied only a thin layer - and this was the effect:

Apologise for the crappy pic, it was taken in a hurry.

Compared to the Maybelline Gloss Glide (something like what Anu's posted about on indianmakeupdiva), this was more cost effective, and was not thick and sticky.

I also bought this "Maybelline" eye-shadow set, that's really pretty and appropriate for summer!
I have no blues in my collection and so fell in love with this set immediately. It's cream based, high in shimmer (in fact you can see tiny flakes of shimmer on the e/s, which dissolves into shimmer when you use a sponge brush). I wore the lightest blue shade today, it is a little too much shimmer for work, so thinking of layering under my e/s on regular work days. The palette cost Rs.250 and has a mild fragrance.

Rosy-posy nails

Over the weekend I decided to bust out another of the Avon Simply Pretty series (in True Rose), in a colour I'll admit I don't wear much, nor like much. But it turned out pretty alright and I love my nails right now especially as I'm typing right now :)

The colour's a very authentic rose, with no shimmer and dries pretty quickly! I layered one coat of top coat to give it the extra shine (and hopefully, last a bit longer than 2 days, heh)

Here are the nails..
