MASSIVE BLOG SALE!

Hello everyone!

So school's out for the summer, I'm done with teaching (at least for the next 2 months!) and I finally have plenty of time to relax and unwind and chill and all that good stuff! Naturally, this meant a bit of a make-up spring cleaning session... although does it still count as spring cleaning if it's in the middle of a hellishly hot summer?

However... I was horrified, absolutely gob-smackingly horrified and totally ashamed of myself when I realised HOW much make-up I have which I don't even use. Seriously. It's just sitting there. In the drawers. Untouched. Bought on a whim or as an indulgence. And never (or very rarely) used.

Hence...  A MASSIVE BLOG SALE!

Rules are fairly simple: the stuff is all on here with prices and detailed descriptions of the product, condition, how you can use it, etc. If you want to buy something, simply email me at coamua@gmail.com with your full name and the products you're interested in. It's going to be on a first come-first served basis, so hurry! :) This blog sale is only open to Karachiites! Sorry about that!

And now on to the good stuff...


1. INGLOT LIPSTICK AND CONCEALER TRIO PALETTE - Rs. 500 (SOLD)
    CONDITION: USED ONCE


I bought this at the Inglot Boutique in Westfields, London. On the far right is a creamy concealer that would suit medium to medium-dark skintones. In the middle is a rose pink lipstick. On the far left is a beigey-nude lipstick. All three colours work extremely well with desi skintones. Head over to www.inglot.com if you're not familiar with the brand!




2. TOPSHOP EYE CRAYON IN MOONSHINE - Rs. 500 (SOLD)

    CONDITION: BRAND NEW

A liquid cheek stain and bronzer stain in a handy twist-up action tube. Really portable and good for touch ups on the go.

Ordered this online while in London.
