My August HAUL : Revlon, L’Oreal Paris, Iraya, Shiseido, Chambor and more!

 

Hey everyone!

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!).

Which of these would you like to see reviewed first? Let me know in the comments below! [/note]

    oh wow. That is a HUGE haul. How do u manage to test out so many products? I have the hardest time with that 🙁

    • September 1, 2014 / 7:36 pm

      It is difficult in the beginning but once you do for a long time, it gets easier and quicker. Skincare of course takes time but most makeup products are much easier and faster to test (apart from foundations).

    Nice post, Ankita. I’ve been ordering products on n off from khoobsurati.com from over a year now and I found them quite good in terms of delivery time and their customer service quite professional as compared to most other e-retailers. First time I placed my order with them it reached me within TWO days!! 🙂 Not only this, but their rep called me to take feedback on my order, how was the delivery time, whether I faced any trouble placing order n were the products in good condition upon receipt etc. Since then they’ve been my favorite e-commerce site in terms of delivery time and service quality, especially since I have had quite unpleasant experiences with purplle.com a few times. But I agree that not always we can find the products we want on their website, many of the products are out of stock at times.

    • September 1, 2014 / 7:38 pm

      Good to know you've had a good experience shopping with them!

  18. September 1, 2014 / 10:43 am

    This is an amazing haul….loreal blush review…waiting:-)

    Dear Ankitha,
    I have a bad whitehead problem and I’m doing routine facial cleanups and scrubbing. im using Neutrogena oil free acne wash. Lotus Alpha Hydroxy Skin Renewal Oil Free Moisturiser and Lotus Cucumber toner. Nothing works its getting worser than earlier. Im using a homemade face pack (Gram flour, turmeric and honey).
    Do u have any idea to reduce this issue.

    • September 1, 2014 / 7:39 pm

      Hi, please avoid excessive scrubbing as it can aggravate the skin further. You could try some deep cleansing masks that help clean up your pores and reduce the whiteheads. I'd recommend clay based masks. Since you seem to like home made packs, you could try Multani mitti with rose water or cucumber water.

    My Revlon powder blush was also shattered in shipping, I was thinking the courier guys dint handle it carefully. The mirror was intact thankfully, so I pressed the blush in pan again and it is usable!

    • September 1, 2014 / 7:39 pm

      Hey Zaina, did you use rubbing alcohol or something to press the blush in the pan?
