2016 Haul + a whole bunch of gifts!

This is the first haul post of 2017 though technically it should have been done in 2016. I am really hoping that there won't be any more haul posts like this in 2017 till atleast June, because I am going on a No Buy and starting a Project Pan. I have tried Project Panning before and been super unsuccessful but this time, I am going to make a greater effort at it. Hopefully I will have roped in a few more people in as well. In case you want to be a part of the 2017 Project Pan , then leave your name and email id below. I will definitely include you.

Moving onto this haul post. I went a little crazy shopping for skincare in Singapore. Also since it was around my birthday I got a bunch of really sweet gifts. I'm going to very quickly run you through what all I got.

It's all Skin

Bangalore lifestyle blogger

A Korean skincare brand (like duh) which had a store in Bugis. Their sheet masks were mostly in the range of 2 SGD each.

The 2 tiny tubs that you see are also skincare creams, mostly overnight masks which looked so cute. I think they were all 3 SGD.

Now you get Innisfree on Nykas itself but I had already picked up this travel kit consisting of their Jeju Green tea collections. If I like what I use, then I will pick up the full size. The kit was around 16SGD.
Just before billing I got tempted and went ahead to pick up some sheet masks. These were also 2SGD each.

Gifts from Aishwarya

So Aishwarya from That Trip-E-Urban Life was such a sweetheart and actually sent me these as a gift before the wedding. I haven't had a chance to use them but I do have a special makeup look planned with the MUA eyeshadow kit.

Remember the Empowering Women campaign I did with Veda Earth.Well it turns out I also won some goodies from them. My husband seems to have taken a liking towards bath salts, so I will probably get him to try this one out and review it.

Birthday gift set 1

So one of my husband's friend's was really sweet and she gifted me a whole bunch of makeup goodies. Sort of like a wedding gift cum birthday gift. Besides that I gifted myself some items- which include the handmade soap from Langkawi, the pink color stix that you see in the centre of the picture and the Bobbi brown eyeshadow stick.

Birthday gift set 2

My cousin sister, who knows my craze for sheet masks, got her husband to shop for these when he was in Korea. So yeah sheet masks from the Land of Skincare!

Nykaa haul

Bangalore lifestyle blogger

Okay so the last set of makeup that I bought in 2016 was this set of eye liners and and kajal from Nykaa. Super excited to use them. I already tried the Rock the Line Kajal and I love it.

Colourpop haul

Bangalore lifestyle blogger

Umm so, I went a little overboard during December and hauled these latest releases from Colourpop as well.

Secret Santa Gift

Bangalore lifestyle blogger

I promise this is the last on the list. The set of makeup that my Secret Santa sent me. My Secret Santa turned out to be Ashwini from That Elegant Chic

What is not featured in the blog post is the MAC Nutcracker Sweet Collection lipsticks that I picked up. I think you must be board of seeing them. I also got gifted a Charles & Keith handbag from the husband and a Micheal Kors handbag by my cousin.

Now you see why a shopping ban is required in my life right?

I promise more reviews coming up. I am working on the next post already. But do you have any specific review requests from these products? Let me know in the comments below.
