|Haul|: The Body Shop Sale '169:56 PM
Hi Pretty people!
Another joy of my life is Sale time on my favorite brands. The body Shop never fails to disappoint with its sales. Quite recently it put up Winter Sale and I had my fair share of purchases, the ones I had been eyeing for sometime. Here are a few picks from my haul
|The Body Shop Ginger anti dandruff shampoo, British Rose palette, Lightening and darkening shade adjusting drops and lipstick in shade|
I had no idea a palette by the name of 'British Rose' even existed. Since the Link Road outlet is in my way from work so that's the most usual Body Shop outlet I visit. I did not spot this palette there. Either it was sold out or is simply not available there. However I spotted it at the Emporium Mall outlet and immediately went for the kill. Makeup being my weakness, this palette called out to me. I haven't actually used this palette yet so can't really say if its worth the buy but knowing that its by Body Shop is enough at the moment. The palette contains 6 eye shadows, 3 smokey dark shades and 3 pink florals along with 2 pink blush colors. All in all, it seems like a good palette to carry around in your hand bag. I can pass a better judgement once I start using it.

Okay, so this lipstick was more of a forced purchase. After I was done with my shopping the very friendly guy at the counter tempted me by telling about lipsticks that were on 70% off and how I would be missing this golden opportunity if I won't buy them. Guess what? I ended up buying one. Although I was sold the wrong shade but nonetheless I am not disappointed with the shade as it suits desi skin tones. I tried it on myself, my cousin who is 2 shades darker than me and on another cousin of mine who is on the yellow pale side. It worked for all of us like a charm.

I had been eyeing these lightening and darkening drops for a very long time and this sale proved to be the perfect opportunity to buy them. The darkening drops were at a pleasing 50% off. Who would want to miss that? These drops are perfect to be mixed with the wrongly bought shades of foundations. In case you have bought a foundation darker then your skin tone, mix it with some lightening drops and vice versa.
I also attempted to try using the darkening drops as a contour shade which turned out to be an epic fail as it turned my skin too dark. I am mentioning it here in case you feel like experimenting (like me) you would know the results before hand.

This shampoo is my absolute favorite as it does wonders for my dandruff. I have reviewed the shampoo on my blog, you can read the review by clicking on the link here. Winters always come on a bad note for me by hitting me with tons and tons of dandruff and an itchy forehead. After trying all sorts of shampoos and oils, Body shop's ginger shampoo is my holy grail. I absolutely recommend this shampoo to anyone who suffers from dandruff.
