Urbantouch Haul 1 Continued

An Overview of the products i bought from

So the very 1st item i ordered was the Vega Fan Brush 
Original price: Rs.70
UT (Urbantouch) price: Rs.60

Umm , i kinda had all kinds of makeup brushes (despite the fact their qaulity wasn't that good though) , except fan brush , foundation brush , blending brush , kabuki brush , and a stipple brush . So i wanted to get all of them , although i don't much use fan brush , still i wanted to buy.

Umm , it is a synthetic bristle brush ,which is great for the job it does . You can use this brush for wiping off fall outs , highlighting , contouring , applying powder and much more . 
I only have one problem with Vega , as i have bought a few more makeup brushes that too the professional ones , the thing is that if they are costing so much for these brushes , atleast they need to work on their products first , they need proper finishing , as this fan brush is also a little out of shape , and the professional brushes too had a few defects in manufacturing , which i think they should fix.
Review for Vega Professional makeup brushes coming soon . :) 

Next was the Elle18 Lip Smoothie 
Original price: Rs.85
UT price: Rs.85

I got it in Melon Flame , which is a coral-y red color , and the best part is it doesn't have any glitters, sparkles or anything , it just gives a decent and nice color and shine to your lips , which is what i wanted , so i am pretty much satisfied with it .

My history with lipglosses : i have mostly pink or nude or golden shades Plus glitter and shimmer in them , i have been wanting to have a few that just works as a sheen to your lips nothing more. 

I guess a few of these lip glosses do have glitter in them , i don't remember which one does , as there are 5 more shades in it . And i plan to buy the Vanilla Heat next , as its a non-glitter nude shade .

And yes they are so tiny cute <3 :D , But in 85 bucks what more you expect .
 And yea HOW CAN I FORGET ? It has a weird but nice :D MINTY effect , i mean when you put it on , your lips feel so refreshing , and 1st time I thought there's some manufacturing defect , but no its perfect and minty <3 .

My Worst Purchase Ever , Yes you guessed it right  >> 
Lakme Gold Dust Shimmer Bronzer
Original price: Rs.450
UT price: Rs.425

Ok so where do i even begin ? :D . Umm , i saw this product's review/swatch long long time ago , and i hated it since then , i would have never considered buying it (because of the chunky glitters, of'course) , but then i saw it on , and by that time i had forgotten 'how that product exactly looked like and i hated it' , but on the website it look pretty decent , i thought that's all i can buy , a little glitter won't hurt me , and i wanted to buy a bronzer badly but also being in my budget . 

But when the package arrived , and i unboxed the lakme bronzer , uhh i was like damn , waste of money! Than i had a flashback of those swatches , and i remembered everything :D ;) .

Uhhh.... SO Shimmerry that it HURTS my eye  :P
Ok so now that its a waste , and i am not gonna use it as a bronzer , there can be a few other ways you can use it as , 1- can be used as a body glow/bronzer and by glow i mean GLLOOWWWW!!! :D
, damn it i can't even afford that much glow :D , 2- can be used instead of lose pigments , or shimmery eyeshadow , 3- highlighting (if you really want to glow aLOT!) .


It is so shimmery that you can hardly distinguish between the 3 different shades in it , Right?

But yea the price does complements the size and the quality , and the shimmer :D because it is pretty huge . It is the size of the palm of my hand.
Although , after reading cynthia's post here , I also removed all the glitter from it with a stippling brush , you can use any brush as a matter of fact , and it really works , now you can actually use it as a bronzer as well , it still contains glitters but much wearable . 
What I did was took a piece of paper , placed it onto a table/flat surface , than scrape off all the glitter from the product with a brush , so that the glitter falls right on the paper and doesn't make much a mess plus you can collect all that extra glitter and store it in a little container , and use it later as a loose shimmer eye shadow , cheap trick! :) :) 

Than i got Maybelline Expert Wear Eye Shadow
Original price: Rs. 240
UT price: Rs. 240

Evrybody knows about maybelline eyeshadows , they are pretty great deal , as they are cheap , have a good quality , have a huge range of color selection , very handy , really pigmented , have pretty nice and sleek packaging , maybelline is a great brand , and i would always always prefer buying it .

Well i bought  mine in Sapphire Ice 34 , as i wanted a dark blue eyeshadow ,although i wanted to buy a matte blue but it does have a little glitter to it which i am ok with . 

All in all i love this lil quad , so far no regrets , and won't be . :)

Now the most awaited product and the purpose of my UT Haul :D
NYX Trio EyeShadow - White/Gray/Black TS01
Original price: Rs. 650
UT price: Rs. 520

How beautiful it looks <3
There were so many shades , which i love about NYX , but it was for 520 bucks i had to go slow on it , so i bought the one in White/Gray/Black , as i wanted to have a black matte color , and next i'm gonna go for some Browns , which are best for neutral shades and there are so many browns and neutrals in it . 

This is my first trio ever , and i just love it alot , it has all the three colors which i would need mostly all the time . They are the classic white , gray and black  . 
And the packaging is pretty elegant , i mean it does not looks cheap , at all . I would really want to stock up almost all the different shades . 

This was the product i was so excited for , but when i saw that it had all the scratches on the mirror and on the back too , i was a bit sad , it looked like really old , that's the only thing i am disappointed about with UT. 

And Lastly , 
Maybelline WhiteStay UV Fairness Compact Powder
Original price: Rs. 150
UT price: Rs. 150

I got it in Fawn , which i think is perfect for me , i don't know i am confused , coz when i got it i wanted to try it on so how it looked on me , and i just applied the compact on my face , with nothing underneath , and it totally matched my skin-tone .

But later on i had to go to a party and i was getting ready , and i applied my foundation which is pretty lighter than the Fawn , so i kinda used Fawn as a bronzer , i took some of it on the fluffy brush and a little bit of the darkest brown eye shadow from a random palette and used it for contouring , so I am a bit confused , will have to give it another try . 

Umm , about the packaging , i don't personally like it , i love the blacks not the whites , it looks kinda ugly to me , but it is pretty huge , and is great for the price offered .

The texture is so soft , i was like really touching it again and again :D , and the powder puff is decently soft . 

Overall , i like this compact and specially in FAWN , i was first gonna buy that in White Ivory , but i read a few reviews and also i had a doubt on it as it might look so cakey and whitey so i din't go for that .

PS : I have used almost all of the items above , so this not exactly how it came in like ..

Violet Bag Review coming up next :)
