Cheap & Cheerful :)

I must be having a lucky day...I bought some really good stuff without spending a lot, inexpensive products are not always less good.

Sunsilk straight and sleek- anti frizz lotion is a thick white lotion that can be used on damp or dry hairs to control frizz, I thought it is also a heat protector but its not but it can be used with blow dry and strengtheners it doesn't provide heat protection but it cuts down the time of blow drying or strengthening:) I personally use it alone usually on dry hairs when I don't feel like spending time on straightening...when the first time I used this product I was like.... wow!!! it givess the softest look and takes away all the frizz and makes my hair soft and manageable.I bought it for only Rs.192 and its Thailand made.
I am a lip balm fanatic...I have so many lip balms I need to finish first and I keep on buying more in cute jars. I bought the red jar (apple flavor) for Rs. 100 and I use it almost every day but it is still as good as new, it leaves my lips soft and glossy with a little cherry tint.The Banana Boat sunblock for lips spf 30 for Rs.60, not really fond of the medicated smell but the best part is that it kind of absorbs in the lips and its not glossy and greasy so I really enjoy wearing this.
Young Chin Lightning Eye Cream Dark Circle Diminisher is for Dark Circles but honestly it hasn't lighten up my dark circles.. I love it because it hydrates and brightens up the eye area and it absorbs very quickly and feels fresh around eyes not heavy or greasy, perfect as a day eye cream for just Rs.150. ingredients included are  cucumber extract, vitamin A,E&B3, Aloe Vera.
I bought this new eye curler because my beloved Maybelline eye curler doesn't fit my eyes anymore...I am not sure  why and its weird..did it happen with anyone of you? I bought this eye lash curler for just Rs.100.....the curve perfectly fit my eyes and it keeps my lashes curled  for 3 days...crazy good:) and I got the brush for just Rs.120 this is the softest brush ever and I use it as a blush brush, blending is quick and effortless with it.
I never use refreshing/cleansing wipes because they dry out my skin but these cool&cool refreshing wipes are alcohol free and the best wipes I have ever use to remove makeup. sometimes I use it alone and sometimes after using my cleansing lotion I just sweep it all over my face and it removes every tiny bit of makeup.

I am so glad I found some good cheap alternates and I am able to save some of my money.Do you want to share your favorite cheapy:)

LIFE LATELY.......Ramadan,Eid, Cooking & Shopping!!

Hey everyone:) I hope all of you had a lovely Ramadan and Eid...I was very busy for the past few weeks...I got very sick on chand raat  and I was in bed till 4pm on the first day of Eid, it kind of took away the Eid fun:(  I am feeling quite well now.
I bought some makeup and skincare products over the month for Eid, some nail art accessories,The Bodyshop's vitamin C scrub and eye cream, color studio nail polish,essence eyeshadow palette,foundation and eye brush, L'Oreal blush, Maybelline color tattoo cream eyeshadow.
I bought lots of jewelry and had fun shopping through out the month...
My independence day celebration was grocery shopping with my sister:) we were so tired and got  stuck in a traffic jam:(  had our aftari at chatter box, an amazing aftari in one my favorites places to eat out.I got my dinner packed and ate it the other day.

 Cooking was highlight of the month, the odd cooking and eating hours in Ramadan really puts me in a lazy mood!
this is what I got packed for dinner and bought this cute independence day cupcake,it was the only cupcake left waiting for me...I guess!
Sheer Khurma and Rasmalai for eid:
  It was a wonderful and busy month of Ramadan as usual:) My busy schedule kept me  from blogging ...now life is back on track!

Cosmetics giant Illamasqua is making a stand against the global giants of cosmetics, who force Australian customers to pay up to 61% more than UK prices. It's entirely unjust that a woman in the UK pays just $24 for a lipstick, while a woman in Australia has to pay $40 for exactly the same product.

 Illamasqua is an independent British colour cosmetics brand and, in the short time we've retailed in Australia, we've heard time and again your frustration over the inflated pricing of cosmetics compared to the rest of the world.

We have listened and want to slash our prices across our range in Australia. But first we need you to demonstrate to the industry that if we can make this change happen, you'll commit to buying our products. So please sign your name, make your mark, tell your friends, clench your fist and cry "hell no!"

I am so glad that finally a giant cosmetic brand took note of this, please go ahead and sign this petition to make it successful :)
