I'm NOT dead!! I Swear!!!

I really want to apologize to all my readers for the lack of posts and the lack of comments on all those lovely blogs I read. But I promise I've been reading all your posts, I'm just not able to comment. Most of you know that I started work in January. It's going great, but its really really hectic. I've been working 9-10 hour shifts, on Saturdays and on most days, I bring my work home. I have no social life right now. I haven't been in touch with any of my friends for the last month. But hopefully, things will calm down in another month.

Its a Saturday and I'm buried neck-deep in work. But I took a tiny break to do a post because I'm pretty convinced most of my readers will forget I even exist in another month. So, here goes. Its not a real post. But a haul post is all I could manage time for. Sorry for that.

I got my first salary and I did a lot of shopping. Took full advantage of the Lifestyle-50% off sale. And lot of other places (Republic Day was the only day I've had off in the last month). Also did a little bit of online shopping. So anyways, I'd been wanting to buy the Colorbar blushes for a while, but unfortunately I've had no time to go shop. So, I went to their website and placed an order. I didn't order much because I wasn't sure how good their service was. But I must say I was quite impressed. I placed my order on Thursday night and I got my package this morning. That is really fast.

This is what the package looked like:
I hope you guys noticed that they had a 6-year-old write my address. 
The way it was packed, anybody could have opened my package and I wouldn't have known
Everything came undamaged.
Colorbar blush in Plum Brown. I absolutely adore this shade. Have yet to try it though.
Nail polish in Crystal Red. Sorry about the bad lighting.
I-Glide eye pencil in Prunella. I'd been dying to try this. 
This is their Duo Mascare. My mascara tube finished and I wanted to try something other than the usual Colossal Volume. I'm hoping its good. 
So guys, thats it for today. I apologise for the half-assed attempt at a post. But I promise, when I have time, I'll come up with some reviews.

Have any of you guys tried any of the above products? How was your experience?

Glad you managed to do a small post. Looking forward to regular posting from you :)

I haven't tried any colorbar blush. Ya I know, shame on me. But I'm going to buy peachy rose. Been wanting to buy prunella for ages, but it's never available :( I may have to order online too.

ladylavendersays said...

@poohkie.. thanks.. lol. this is my first colorbar blush as well. wanted to buy the just earth one, but from the swatches, i had a feeling it would look muddy on me. So, went for this one since peachy rose isn't available on their website. :P. But knowing your love for eye pencils, I think you'll really like prunella. Its a gorgeous shade. Have yet to wear it, but it was really soft when I swatched it. I think it's safe to order online. Their service seems to be quite prompt. I got mine in less than two days.

Zee Bee said...

Welcome back ! I recently got Prunella its a beautiful subtle purple..the pencil is soft. I was never into eyeliner pencils -used to stick to kajal earlier.

ladylavendersays said...

@zee bee..I started using eye pencils only recently. used to stick to liquid eyeliners before that. Yea, i really liked prunella as well. its a very pretty shade..

bhumika said...

ladylavendersays said...
