Flipkart's Big Billion Sale Beauty Haul & Mini Reviews

I restricted myself from shopping for the past couple of months because I wanted to save while I shop. Diwali is the season when there are discounts and deals galore and shopping gets more fun. Flipkart and amazon had grand Diwali sales early in october and I splurged crazy.


Flipkart has disappointed with its service and discounts this year but in its 2016 edition of Big Billion days sale they had fabulous offers and the best offers were actually on beauty and personal care products making me dizzy with happiness and my Bank balance slimmer by the moment.



This is not my complete haul.. I actually shopped for more beauty products but the products arrived in batches so I couldnt photograph them together.


Here is a peek into my haul





VLCC loveable lips Orange:

VLCC products never work for me. This lip balm is an epic fail. The packaging is the only good thing about it. The texture is waxy and they arent very hydrating . The bigger problem is the peachy tint they leave on my lips which washes me out making me look pale and accentuating fine lines on my flaky lips. To make matters worse I brought 2 of these * Head bang*
Price: 99 INR


Maybelline Baby Lips electro pop Berry Bomb:

Baby lips have nice fun and vibrant packaging and the Berry bomb variant has purple with black combination. I love this lip balm as it has pleasant fruity smell and is very hydrating on my lips. It heals my dry lips and can be used even in winter for moisturized soft lips. There is a light berry tint on lips when this lip balm is applied but it will not show much on pigmented lips. Overall this has become my top favourite lip balm at present and I cant stop applying it. A must buy , this one
Price: 165 INR for 3.5gm



Garnier white complete multi action fairness cream (Night):

I love the Garnier white complete day cream , so I decided to give the night cream from this range a try. I love the lemony fragrance of this garnier cream and it hydrates my dry skin nicely and I wake up to soft supple skin in the morning. I have been using this cream for 3 weeks now and there are also visible dark spot reduction which is probably because presence of lemon which has natural bleaching properties. All in all it is a nice budget friendly night cream for women in their early 20's but women in late twenties and thirtie should look for a more moisturizing and nourishing night cream.
Price : 105 INR for 18g


Lakme Invisible Finish Foundation:

This is the best budget foundation in Indian market and I have this 3 years back also but later switched to more expensive foundations for more coverage. These days my skin tone has changed and I dont require much coverage so I decided to give a shade from the invisible finish range a try.  This foundation blends easily and has yellow undertones which suits Indian skin tones and gives a natural finish. The staying power is pretty average but for the price I totally love this foundation. This is a good  range for beginners to start experimenting with foundations.
Price: 225 INR for 25ml

Maybelline Colorshow blush in peach sweetie

I love blushes and  Maybelline cheeky glow was my go to everyday wear blush which I broke a couple of months back. I wanted to repurchase cheeky glow but spotted this new colorshow range and brought it instead. The colorshow blush packaging is similar to cheeky glow but this comes in a black pan. The shade peach sweetie is a beautiful pink with coral hints and micro shimmer which will suit most Indian skin tones giving a natural finish in 2-3 swipes. The staying power is also good staying on my cheeks for about 4 hours and the pigmentation is also nice. Overall this blush is similar to cheeky glow and is a value for money product.
Price: INR 299 for 7 g


Lotus Herbals colorstylo chubby lip color French Rose:

I love Chubby lip crayons and wanted to add more to my stash . This Chubby lip colour from Lotus Herbals is creamy and nicely pigmented. The shade french rose is a bright red with pink undertones and gives a very glossy finish. I like the shade but hate that this lipcolor transfers so much. It stays for 3-4 hours and cannot survive meals. This is a good pocket friendly lip crayon range for women who like lip colours with a glossy finish.
Price: 495 INR for 3.7g

Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate:

I love my kajals but I wasnt wearing them much becuas ethey intesified my dark circles after smudging so I wanted a Kohl which doesnt smudge much. my colossal and eyeconic gave me panda eye eventually after  about 5 hours so I decided i needed to splurge if I wanted quality. This kohl is worth the price and the intensity of the colour really surprised me. This kohl stays longer than other kajals on my waterline and smudges less too . If you really love kajals you should definitely splurge on this and if you have dark circles this is a must have. Try it, expensive but worth it.
Price 725

Lakme Rose Powder:

I am pampering my skin a lot these days and so I have flawless well behaved skin which is helping mego foundation free. But I need to apply powder on my T zone and also under my eyes to keep kajal from smudging . I usually use compact powder but now I wanted to use a loose powder and this works nicely. The powder glides smoothly on skin, the quantity is huge and the price is pocket friendly. This is a good option for oily skinned beauties to keep oil in control and it also provide light coverage for everyday use.
Price: 150 INR for 40g


VLCC Skin Defense Rose Face Scrub

Another disappointment from VLCC. This face scrub has an extremely pleasant rose smell which I love but the exfoliating particles in this scrub are too mild and dont scrub at all. I actually wanted a scrub to exfoliate dry skin for winter but this is definitely not going to help me do that. This face scrub has gel like texture which doesnt even lather much for me to use it like a face wash on an everyday basis. In short I regret buying this !
Price: Rs.150/- for 80 g

Ponds Deep Cleansing Facial Foam with Activated Carbon

I have heard a lot about activated carbon deep cleansing and wanted to try this face wash which has activated carbon in it.  There is a nice fresh smell and the face wash leaves my face squeaky clean even removing my everyday makeup but it leaves my dry skin drier and i need to apply a moisturizer immediately. This facewash lathers well and I need just a small amount of it but I dont use it as an everyday cleanser because it is drying. i feel this is a good face wash for oily skinned beauties or when you are back from a long trip and want to clean all the grime and dirt away . Definitely worth the price and one of the best face washes form Ponds
Price: 192 INR for 100g
