Beauty Buys/Beauty Haul & PR samples


'BEAUTY BUYS' is just another term coined for the infamous 'HAUL'. It is the list of things I buy, try and the ones you will hear me 'yak', 'blab', 'review' about in next few posts!!! Call this a 'Preview'..

My Beauty and Skincare picks for the month of March. I didn't buy everything in one day. Occasional buys in the whole month adds up and while I share some of these on Instagram, I try and upload one collective blog post for the same.



Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip: Sephora Favorites mostly carry good selection of products. This Lip Set has bunch of lip products that are 'nude' colors or my lips but better. I personally am a huge fan of NARS Dolce Vita Lipstick. It is a sheer, my lips but better kind of a product. I recently emptied my old one and this came just in time, full size along with some other colors to try.



Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish: As much as I love my peels and other exfoliators, it feels really good to have some beads actually scrubbing off the dead skin. Laura Mercier is my absolute favorite in this department. I have had samples of this in the past. It was one of my "Best in Skincare -2015" product. Finally I picked the full size.

Caudalie lip balm n hand cream set: What can I do? The 'Isle of Doom' at Sephora always has these amazing value sets or minis to try. I love Caudalie hand and nail cream. They are one of the best in terms of texture and performance. Scent, not a fan. The Caudalie Lip Conditioner is something I have never tried. The brand has always worked for me. Hopefully, the lip conditioner will be awesome too.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana White: Picked this fragrance bottle. I was torn between the Black and White. Both smell divine. The white one was more day time scent for me. Fragrances are very subjective and describing scents and notes itself is science. So if I have to describe anything related to scent, I just say I like it or I don't. With my little understanding of scents, I know this is very delicate, floral and feminine. Not too sharp. The Notes: Peony, Muguet, Tender Musk. (website).



I picked some drugstore goodies too. All from NYX Cosmetics. 

NYX Slim Lip Pencil in the Shade Mauve
NYX Butter Lipstick in the shade Pops Explosif
NYX Butter Lipgloss in Shade Angel Food cake
NYX Soft matte Lip Cream in Shade Cannes
NYX Powder Blush in Mauve (on sale here)

I was sent two press samples to try.



Royal Rose Hydrating Serum from the brand Valentina. I have never tried anything from them before. It is almost 3 weeks of me trying this one and I will review it on the blog soon.

Another Skincare product that I was sent was from the brand Cura Skincare. They just have one product and that makes it all the more interesting. The creme is called Complexion Catalyst Crème and the ingredient list is great. It is perfect for dry skin like mine. I am currently using it once a day. With two products to test, I can manage only AM and PM with one product in each time slot.

Lastly, it was my B'day month and Sephora gave this lovely gift. It has two Marc Jacobs products. A lipstick in the shade Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and an eyeliner in black. Both are mini sizes, but appreciated.
Also some interesting trial samples to try. I am most excited to try these. Murad Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essence and Shiseido Ibuki Quick fix Mist
