      Hi Parita, thank you so much πŸ™‚ You just brightened up my day! Its a very satisfying feeling to hear this from a reader. I will try to include skin care and hair products as well, if you have anything specific in mind, do drop a comment on this post. I’m glad the products I’ve recommended are working well for you! The L’oreal Mascara is fantastic, you will love it. I will review it sometime soon this week.

    Where do you get these color bar eye shadows? Not available in any drug stores here in Australia:( maybe you can add an online website link on how to buy them oo. Also add a YouTube video link on a makeup using these shades if possible…

    yaaay! that’s so exciting, lots of new things happening on Corallista.
    hmmm as for requests, yes, i do have one. I am always on the look out for totally smudge-proof, dark black eyeliner pencils that are as good as the liners of chambor or MAC.

      Colorbar Blackout and Lakme Absolute kohl are awesome. So is Maybelline colossal kajal but that one irritates my eyes sometimes.

      • June 23, 2012 / 5:41 pm

        Thanks for the recommendations, Ankita. I shall get them soon πŸ™‚
