Hope you’re having a fun Sunday! Today I’m sharing with you some new products that I’ve received in the past couple of weeks. Some of them were sent to me for review (and I won a contest too 😛 ) while some were purchased by me.
The first batch of products is from a new e-commerce website called Khoobsurati.com ~
My review of the site : The website has a wide range of products apart from beauty and personal care items like bags, watches, jewelry and health products. They offered to send me a few products and I picked a few things I wanted. The package was sent to my parents address in India via Fedex and it reached Bhopal from Ghaziabad in 5 days which isn’t super fast but anything under a week works.
I do like the variety though I have to say that the site needs some sprucing up. Some links and images are broken and it wasn’t easy to navigate because of a lack of organized structure. A lot of products featured are Out of Stock as well so that is something they could work on. But its nice to have another option to shop beauty products and accessories online.
The next batch of products came from Revlon! Remember my Greek Holiday Look post? Well that won me the Choices by Revlon bloggers contest so I was quite stoked to receive this little gift hamper from them. I actually wanted to try some of these products like the Lacquer Balm in Vivacious (this shade was not launched in Japan), Cheek Highlighting Palette in Bronze Glow and their new blushes. Unfortunately the blush they sent completely shattered in the pan during transit 🙁 I’ve never tried fixing a broken blush before but its such a pretty earthy shade that I’ll try to fix it.
I also received a cleansing milk from a new organic skin care brand called Organic Harvest. This is the first time I’m trying out their products and so far I really like their cleansing milk. It smells lovely! I also received 2 hair care products from Iraya which is one brand I’ve always wanted to try more of. I’ve tried the oil a few times and it makes my hair quite soft! Excited to try the hair pack as well.
The next batch of products is from L’Oreal Paris India. Some were sent for review, some I purchased. The blush is a new launch while the gloss and eye shadow quad have been around for some time. Let me know which one would like to see reviewed first.
I also received a couple of products from Shiseido and Chambor – all new launches. You’ve already seen me use the Chambor eye liner here and the lip gloss here. Shiseido sent me their new Sheer Eye zone corrector and the new Lacquer Gloss. The corrector is not a good concealer match for me unfortunately but works as highlighting brightener. Reviewing both products soon. I’m also trying out another shade from the Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict range – a pretty peachy pink shade Desert Rose.
The last bunch of products is a luxury lip haul! I picked these from strawberrynet.com which sells a lot of high end makeup. I’ve been in love with the YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in Rose in Tension and I decided to pick another shade – a bright coral berry shade Rose Asarine. I try a lot of lipsticks but nothing is as beautiful and luxurious as the YSL lipsticks!
My other picks were – the new Estee Lauder Envy Sculpting Lipstick (these weren’t launched in Japan and Sephora.com doesn’t ship this product to Japan) in Infamous and the Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick in Brun Vintage (my Mum has the same shade and I tried it once, loved it!).
