High-end + Drugstore Haul

So the biggest event for makeup fanatics was held last weekend. Atiya didn’t attend it but I (Amna) did and updated her the whole time by Whatsapping pictures. Ah, the joys of technology. So this is what I picked up (and now I’m sad because I am broke as hell LOL)

InDelath/Zensky Open house haul :
I always wanted to see what the big hype around Lime Crime’s Velvetines was so I bought the most raved shade ‘Cashmere’. the thing is, I wasn’t very happy when I used it for the first time. Lets be real, its not for darker skins. BUT I experimented with different lip liners and lipsticks and came up with a trick to wear it and now I can’t stop wearing it. The Ofra Liquid Lipstick was for Atiya because shes been looking for a deep violet lip color.  I have (sort of) mastered the art of applying false lashes so I wanted to buy lashes from a good brand. They are beautiful! I have already worn them which is why they look a bit used in the photo. I also got a couple of perfume samples just for the heck of it.

Drugstore:

Atiya: Innocent trips to the drugstore often don’t turn out that way so we ended up indulging a bit WHOOPS. I passed by the Color Studio kiosk and this color caught my eye. I have been on the hunt for a pinky nude (I know, totally unlike me) but ever since I saw YouTuber Tess Christine wearing a similar color in her video I wanted to have it. Absolutely love Color Studio for its nail polishes and at such dirt cheap prices.

Amna: I bought 3 purple toned lip liners to wear with my ‘Cashmere’ liquid lipstick. If you are struggling with this lip color, then buy these! I also bought a soft pastel pink nail polish because I love nude nail polishes. Can’t get enough of them.

  1. Loved your haul! I couldn’t find a shade in Ofra for myself so I didn’t consider them although I loved liquid lipsticks. This purple is just fab! Purple is my favourite colour 😀 Cashmere is so pretty. I have a lip liner like that and I think I know how you make it work but please do tell us how you do it. I love the CSP haute nails range. You bought a great shade.I want to get hald lashes from Ardell so do review them please. A great liner for such colours is MUR Rebel which I have and an almost black one called Vamp. Only PKR 180 each, it’s crazy how good they are. Cheers 🙂

    • I guess I’ll do a separate tutorial on how to apply Cashmere with proper lip swatches. I haven’t tried anything from MUR, but everyone’s been recommending it, so I might give it a try.

  2. You have got some amazing stuff!
    Love the swatches. Share ons of Teddy bear CSP
