Writing this post today reminded me of the good old days with Flipkart where there were sales so amazing that you couldn't get enough of them! Sadly, gone are those days, especially with Flipkart following the path by Myntra and going app only, all the excitement for shopping from them is dying.
Moving on, yes, I bought this box almost a year back and got the time to review it now. *Hides face* Ehem. I REALLY need to get a hang on blogging again. :P
Actually, I am not a big fan of such boxes as I know from experience that one of the products in these is always stuffed in and a total disaster, which was true in this case too. But what urged me to buy it was that lipstick.
Let me tell you a short story.
A girl walks into an SS store to buy a foundation.
All the time she's checking out what a particular sales girl is wearing on her lips.
When she can't control it any more she asks the sales girl what she's wearing. (I know embarrassing).
The sales girl is sweet and greedy too as she is trying to talk her into buying the lipstick too.
The girl swatches that shade.
Comes home without buying it.
REGRETS it big time!
Yes, that girl is me and the lipstick shade I am talking about is the one hot shade which got a lot of fame, thanks to Aishwarya Rai who wore it with her Roberto Cavalli gown on Cannes 2014.
~L'Oreal Paris Moist Matte Lipstick in Lincoln Rose(As shown in the above pic).
I kept checking for its availability online as I didn't get a chance to go back to that SS store. The shade was out of stock everywhere. The only place it was available in was this beauty box. Finally, on a bright Summer morning, Flipkart came up with a 40% off on this box and I knew I had to buy it.
This box is inspired from one of Sonam Kapoor's Cannes 2014 looks and if it wasn't for that silver eyeshadow(which is pathetic), it would have been a perfect copy of Sonam's makeup on the box.
Here are short reviews of all the three products in this box.
*L'Oreal Paris Moist Matte Lipstick in Lincoln Rose:
It's a personal favourite and I totally love it! It was my HG red lipstick for a while until their new range of red lipsticks showed up.
It gives you that perfect shade of Red lips to die for which look super hot, sensuous and drool-worthy.
*L'Oreal Paris Super Liner Gel Matic Deep Brown Force Review:
The Super Gel Matic liner in Deep Brown is THE BEST eye pencil I have ever tried! It's pure love and something which suits all occasions. This has become a wardrobe staple for me now. It's quite pigmented and doesn't sting your eyes and the staying power is also cool. A must buy.
*L'Oreal Paris Infallible Monos Pebble Grey 020 Review:
I am not too fond of L'Oreal's Infallible range and this was the biggest disappointment! PATHETIC is the word.
- Takes at least 5 swipes for the colour to show
- This shade looks ghastly. Like your Kajal has smudged and spread everywhere.
- It stings your eyes
- The staying power is laughable for this price. Doesn't stay even for 1/2 an hour! >_<
If I hadn't got a 40% discount on this box, it would have killed me to have paid for this Infallible Eyeshadow in Pebble Grey.
Here's an In-Photo review of all the three products:
Overall, if you can ignore that eyeshadow and manage to get this box on a discount, it's an AMAZING buy! The packaging is totally cute where the upper box slides to reveal an inner box. It's perfect for gifting!
Overall rating for the box: 4/5
(Kills me to minus one for that eyeshadow :/)
