iHauled – May Edition!!

Aloha Ladies.. Hope you are all doing great πŸ™‚ This post was supposed to go live last month but I got little busy with some personal stuff so couldnt post it then! Anyways here is what I hauled the entire month of May πŸ™‚ 



First of all the best part of the haul was the Real Techniques brushes <3 I was eyeing on these for God knows how long πŸ™‚ I am sooper excited to try these.. I’ve already used the buffing brush and the kabuki and Im totally loving them both πŸ™‚ 







Next comes the shower gels, I am actually not a shower gel person and I usually prefer soaps over shower gels but these were highly recommended by my dear friend Upasana and I couldnt resist myself after sniffing them.. hence got three of them and I’ve already used the Morning Tonic and the Sensual ones and they smell ammahhhzzinngg!!!


These days I’m on a hunt for good makeup removers and the Loreal Go 360 clean was on my list for quite sometime and I finally got the deep clean one.. These cleansers comes in 5 variants. The little scrublet is the real star here, its sooper gentle on the skin and at the same time cleanses and smoothens skin in a jiffy! sooper impressed πŸ™‚ Just a word of caution if you are buying these, please make sure not to bring them close to your eyes.. this thing when gets in your eyes will put your eye balls on fire!!

I also got the VLCC anti tan fruit face pack after reading greats reviews and now Ive almost used it up and I feel its kinda over hyped  product :/ pretty disappointed!


I also got the Oriflame Activelle roll on deos in Invisible and pure care variants.. This was a re-purchase and hands down these are the best ROD’s I’ve used so far! I sweat extremely bad and this is like my sweat savior (?!?) πŸ˜€


Coming to makeup, I bought just a few items this time as I already have a truck load of stuff to finish πŸ™ I didn’t wanna hoard stuff and end up throwing them past the expiry date :/ 

I bought the MUA power pout in shade Rendezvous, Giordani gold retractable lip brush (an awesome brush!!), Maybelline Colorama in Coral Chic (My first Colorama!), Lakme absolute kohl ultimate (a re-purchase! the handy sharpener is missing :/ and I hate lakme for scre*wing up their hit products!!) and the simply pretty dew kiss lip tint in shade dewy rose (these are of excellent quality and one of the best products from Avon, I already have the other 2 shades and I’m happy that I got this, the shades are gorgeous!!)


I also ended up buying few Inglot stuff during the 30% off sale! I teamed up with my friend and got these after almost 3 weeks!!

I got the makeup remover, cream concealer in shade LC300, Lipstick in shade 73 (coral) & 75 (brick brown with red undertones) and 393 Pearl eye shadow – a great higlighter shade and MAC rice paper dupe!


Next is my favorite every day (morning) cleanser, Lush Angels on bare skin <3 I always trust Lush blindly when it comes to skin care.. Lush products have never failed me (at least so far) AOBS is my HG morning cleanser!! again this was a re-purchase πŸ™‚


Next I’ve few stuff sent by PR, to be reviewed on the blog, so watch this space guys, reviews coming up soon <3 


My dear friend Deepika gifted me these for my Birthday and I love all of them <3 Deeps, if you are reading this (I am sure you are πŸ˜‰ you totally know my taste, love you loads <3

An ethnic earring (Totally my kinds), Lakme Eyeconic kajal and Chambor Nail polish in shade Burnt orange πŸ™‚ 


I also spent a lot on jewelry this time, again all ethnic <3 

This was a ruby (light pink) stone necklace/earring set, the color is very pretty in person and I fell for it, the moment I saw it <3


This was a pacchi earring, the pacchi fixed on a black tear drop shaped wooden block, usually traditional pacchi comes in alternate color stones but this one was a unique piece with a modern touch and I totally love it <3


This one is again a unique piece with a blend of ethnic & modern touch, this is a ruby & zircon studded earring with green enamel πŸ™‚


This is a Lakshmi Kasu pendant/Earring set! Jewelry made from Kasu (a Tamil word which means coin) engraved with Hindu Goddess Lakshmi is quite popular here down south and until few generations back it was mandate for a Tamil bride to wear Kaasu maalai (Necklace) during her marriage πŸ™‚ Now things have changed and its quite rare to find such jewelry anymore!


These are totally random buys, the black one I bought it from Pantaloons and the rest two are finger rings <3


The last one was from Avon’s new June catalogue, this was actually bought this June but since I am on a jewelry shopping ban this month, I am adding this to the may list πŸ™‚ 

This is a faux faceted opal stone earring, a lovely sea green color <3


I also went crazy (still going!!) over green tea last month, I wanted to try different flavors of tea/green tea and bought these, there was a Mango & Honey Lemon flavor missing from this lot which I have already finished πŸ™‚ If you guys know a great site where I can find yummy teas please please comment below. I will be pre’tea’ thankful to you <3


Last but not the least, the May Vellvette box! Though Ive been buying these boxes since the time they launched, I had never mentioned them in my blog just because I didnt feel it was worth a mention! Every month something bad would happen (damaged/missing/cheap stuff etc) and spoil the fun and this was the time I actually felt that I had received some worthy products and here you go! 


And yeah I bought most of these products online via various sites like Nykaa, Purplle, Goodlife, Flipkart, Slassy & Myntra and I used this site called Cuponation to get some awesome deals and coupon codes to shop from these sites and I saved a lot of money!! Check them out guys, they will make your shopping experience a pleasure <3

Until I meet you next time.. Take care and Stay Gorgeous!! <3
