Cosmetics Haul

Wedding is season in on, and for me it is on with a full bang. I have back to back weddings to attend starting from November till January the next year as of now. So I had to stock up on some of my make up items. The number one being the Foundation. I have been using Revlon Colorstay for quite some time but this time around I thought to try something new. And I so wanted to try the new Infallible Foundation from L'oreal. But wait I got Maybelline Dream Satin too. Read on to know why I got two different foundations.

Primer ~

Colorbar Perfect Match Primer : I have heard so many good things about this primer. Many even say that this is best drug store primer available in the Indian Market. I had used this the other day and I absolutely love it.

Foundations ~

Before you buy foundation you need to know if you are a warm undertone or a cool undertone. To test that check your veins on your wrist, if they appear green to you then you are warm undertone, so you should be purchasing foundations which are having yellow undertone to it. If your vein appear blue or purple to you then you are cool undertone and you should be purchasing foundation which has pink undertones to it. I have veins which are both green and purple, so I have both warm and cool undertone, basically a neutral undertone with an extremely tanned skin. This is the reason why I never finds the right shade of foundation for me. Almost all tends to look ashy on my skin no matter how high end product I try. So for girls who has this problem, what you should do it buy both yellow and pink undertone foundation and mix them to match to your skin tone. That's what I do and this is the reason why you see two different types of foundation in my stash.

Maybelline Dream SatinWhipped Liquid Foundation in shade 04 : This shade in particular is the darkest shade available as per the SA and also has a pink undertone to it.

L'oreal Infallible 24H Foundation in shade 250 Radiant Sand : This shade in particular is a bit light for me whereas the shade above it ( 300 Amber) is a bit dark for me. This is a yellow undertone foundation and this one has some great reviews.

Setting Powder ~

Maybelline Clear Glow All in one Pressed talc : Always set your foundation and concealer with colorless translucent powder. I wanted to purchase the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder but it is currently running out of stock in Kolkata. So I got the Maybelline one and this particular variant sets my foundation and absorbs oil but not very long lasting though.

Color Cosmetics ~

Colorbar Zoom and Woosh Mascara : Heard so many good things about this Mascara.I love the fact that there are two separate wands for you to get the perfect volume and length for your lashes. So want to try this out.

Colorbar All day waterproof eye shadow stick : If you follow me on Instagram ( @shampita_trl ) / Facebook ( TheRainbowLadyBlog ) or Twitter ( @ShampitaB ), if you don't then do follow me there. I have swatched all the shades of this eye shadow and picture is available on my social media. I got the shade 004 Moss which is a great shade, perfect to create some cool smokey eye look.

Colorbar Definer Lip Liner : Again a great lip liner, which I wanted to try. I got the shade Cocktail Peach 009.

I am so excited to try my new purchases this wedding season. Let me know in the comments below which one of these products you want me to swatch and review first.
