Happy New Year!!!
My year started with a good note. So, I wanted first blog post of the year to be a haul. Here are the things I ordered from the US during Cyber Monday sale, held every year on the first Monday after Thanksgiving . The Balm had 50% off on the entire site for 24 hours during this day. I could not miss this opportunity and asked my friend to accept the package on my behalf. “A zillion thanks to my friend Ravi” because of whom I am able to try out all that I wanted.
Without tempting you any further here is what I got.
Everyone goes gaga over The Balm, but I have never heard anyone talking about Balmsai. I found the palette much better than Nude’tude, specially because of the colors you get in the palette. There are many eye looks that I can create using this palette. And, the colors are right up my alley.
There were multiple nude palettes in my list to add to my collection and Nude’tude was one of them. I first got to swatch the palette in Malaysia which made me want it badly. The only reason why I did not buy was the price tag. It would cost me around $45, while the actual cost of the palette was $36. I am so happy now that I did not buy it then. Just because I bought it on sale the palette cost me only $18 🙂
The only downside was that I did not get the brush in the palette. But who uses the brush in the palette anyway. OK! I am just trying to convenience myself here.
Mary- Lou Manizer:
I am not a huge fan of blusher/highlighter mainly because I feel they enhance pore and marks on my skin. There are so many YouTube bloggers who love highlighters which made me wonder whats the big deal?
While ordering from The Balm I wanted to place the order worth $50 to get free shipping. After buying both the palettes, I has to add one more product to get free shipping. So, I chose to go with Mary- Lou Manizer which everyone raves about. It was only after using I realized how amazing it is.
Hope you enjoyed The Balm haul as much as I did :*
