Bourjois Blush ~ 92 Santal ~ Review and Swatch ~ and my twist to it !


This song touched my heart like pure love. To even say that I love it,,,,  is in itself an understatement ,, you can find me listening this song any time of the day ,, The movie,, well where to start about it ! I sometimes watch it at 2 in the morning,, I feel alone or I feel loved ,, this movie works its magic everytime. I express with my eyes more than with words. People say that I talk with my eyes . :) I have no clue which eyeshadow suits my eye color. I tried google but nothing inspired/excited me. When I pictured myself wearing eyeshadow it has always been THIS, orangish-brown, plum-purple and shimmery brown. Everything apart from these,,well I cringe at the thought of it. Of course when I comment on Blogger's post with their vibrant eyemakeup and say that '' you look fab'' I mean it!! I like those eye looks on other people, on me na na na .. Standing on makeup counter and imagining this shadow and that shadow on my eyes does help :) So, when I was on the Bourjois counter asking for a particular shade number which they didn't have in stock I asked them to show me the open palette that was kept in their makeup stand. I had already decided on buying the smoky eye trio,,so the sales girl knew which shades I wanted. I looked at the pan of this 92 santal, took a swatch on my hand and immediately said I want this Shadow,, twinkling eyes,,smile on my lips,,I had found THE shadow for me ;)
(Background ) I had to catch a movie which was going to start in 5 mins in the same mall where I was doing all this shopping. I was hurrying like anything,,my cell kept ringing,,i kept on getting threatening calls,,calls from my peeps asking me to come up for the show,,(as if they will disown me ;) I paid the bill and ran and ran . I like running .
(mins later) So, bored of the movie I opened my bag and with the help of the light on my cell  phone, I started checking out the stuff I bought (was ensuring that they gave me everything ! whether I took back my credit card from the billing counter ! what was the free gift ! ooohhh I spent this much :o ! ) ,, I saw a lil pot with blush written on it,, I thought I got blush as a free gift. hmphh why why would they give a blush as a free gift ! I read the name 92 SANTAL and damnnnn!! I got cheated !! Or m I so LOST while shopping ! The shade which I loved was of a Blush not a eyeshadow. The sales girl zipped up her mouth to sell another of their product. I got cheated ! Yet I am Happy ;) I love this shade. I don't wear blush often. It's like only for parties. I used the blush as a shadow and I am having no complaints. It works fine as a eye shadow. Stays put for long ~ 5 hrs ~ Doesn't crease. Has fine shimmer . I LUB it ;) Take a look at the pics.
I didn't care to conceal my dark circles. Why? cos I didn't feel like. Why m I having dark circles ? well... I read till wee hours in the morning + I am not keeping well since past one month. so, please excuse okie :)
I am looking pink/orange/coral over here and I dunno the reason. Plus I accidently deleted all the good ones. 
stop making excuses Namita !!
I used : 1. Lakme perfect radiance compact as a base (I am yet to buy an eyeshadow base) 2. 92 SANTAL Blush by Bourjois as an eyeshadow (miss smarty pants ! or...) 3. Lakme Lash Artist mascara (I need Bourjois one/ Mayebelline one got over last week) 4. Lotus Herbal kajal (LUB it) 5. Revlon Custom eye palette ~      Darkest brown with light shimmer as a eye liner      Shimmery champagne as a highlighter 6.http://vivaciousflair.blogspot.in/2012/04/small-little-haul.html 7. Vega lip filler brush for picking up eye liner shadow 8. Fingers for applying the highlighter
The blush is good, I  have reviewed Lilas D'or another shade from the same range over here  . Have written about the quality and everything in that . I applied it on my cheeks as a bronzer and it looked F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S (only thing is I don't apply bronzer/blush daily,,once in a blue moon case) Price ~ INR 575 Thanks Namita :) Dream some more today .. (p.s. the Blush pot had the eyeshadow applicator in it and not the small blush brush . Man!! She sure tried to fool me!! well... you know everything now.. ;) )
