Be Talk: Valentines Day Haul : Christian Dior, Shiseido and L'Occitane

,Holla Ladies!!! It was Valentines Day!!!! How did it go for all you people???


Err..BTW I am single :D :D

Na-I do have a bunch of "Good Friends"-but truly I am too reluctant to let go of my single status! So  on Valentine's Day-I as usual faced questions like-"Ahh where are you going out today", "OOH-what gifts did you get today???"-and then I finally decided-OKAY FINE-let me celebrate my single-hood by myself!! And what can be more special to a single girl than shopping from the "Hollywood brands" ??? :D :D 

Shoppers Paradise South City Mall Kolkata
VDay Celebrations at the Mall

Did I tell you guys that I have won a PhD Scholarship for three years in Germany? Well, Since getting the news-I decided to treat myself-with what else than Makeup from some top order (read: mostly avoided and looked at as if they are only for display :D :D) brands. So I found this perfect occasion to splurge on. I decided NOT to ask the price before or after buying (I usually pay by card). Now while writing this post and reading the bill-I am getting some high voltage jolts :D

OKAY-so here are the details of the haul...

1. Christian Dior Rouge Diorific Long Wearing True Color Lipstick

Shade: Hula Hoop Rummy 
Price: Rs 2030


2. L'Occitane Pivoine Flora Eye Shadow Duo 
Price: Rs 1400 




3. Shiseido Dual Balancing Foundation in Shade I60 

Price: Rs 1825


What added to my happiness are the lots of lovely free samples I got from all these brands-here they are :)

From L'Occitane



Shampoo


Hydration Cream

From Dior


Foundation
Perfume
From Shiseido

Finally, I had KFC Fiery Grilled chicken and crushers.. Have never spent a better VDAY till date :)
And for the single belles out there..

  28. Yeah, Cosmetics today is a big buck industry and many people are earning a hell lot from this industry. But in today’s hard-edged competitive world, looking good is as essential as your talent or qualifications. I think this is all the more a reason why people today keep themselves groomed and good looking. It is due to this that there is a spurt of gymnasiums, grooming parlors across every nook and corner of our neighborhood. And this is just the beginning.
