Luxola Website Review
Here comes my big fat Diwali haul. I say Diwali because I always find excuses to shop. Oh its Holi? Let’s buy some colours..or makeup. Its your kid’s birthday? Let’s go buy some gifts..or makeup. That explains why I need to read Shoo, Jimmy Choo! But I would rather Shopaholic to the Stars (can’t even start with how much I love reading Sophie Kinsella) But before that you need to read about my recent online shopping experience and the big fat Luxola haul I managed. As soon I saw this mail sitting in my inbox telling me about Luxola and its shipping to India I could tell some online shopping was on the cards. Let me quickly go through the review and show you what I all I got.
Before looking either left or right, just put the Beauty Blender in your cart. They have launched a new black sponge which I am now eyeing so I might be getting that soon. Did I tell you I’m so excited to finally own THE beauty blender?!
My next stop had to be Real Tachniques. They sell out quite fast so I added whatever I could manage. Yep zero patience, already used this RT travel kit brush kit before clicking the pictures. I cannot tell you how many times I have planned to buy Real Techniques in the past few months. This one time I was so so close to the buy button but some or the other thing always stopped me. Its a mix of reviews from friends and other beauty bloggers about the customs, lost packages, etc etc so I’m now glad Luxola stocks it. Some of the brushes are priced lesser than feelunique and lookfantastic.
When RT is sold out, you go straight to Sigma. I own a few Sigma brushes and love them to bits. But this time I wanted to try the eye makeup brushes which are said to be MAC dupes. Like the E25 Blending Brush which is a close dupe of MAC 217 Brush. Apart from that I also got the E30 pencil brush, E40 Tapered Blending Brush and E65 Small Angle Brush.
I also got the Sleek Brow Kit and Life’s a Peach Blush. The blush looks orange in pictures but its actually a very pretty peach. Lemme know if you want a review on it. I also got the 3C Highlighter which is so much like MAC Soft and Gentle. Minimal shimmer with a healthy sheen.
If you know me you know I hate single eyeshadows. Who has got the time in the world to sort them! And I always wanted a big fat shimmer palette so I got this Zoeva 88 Shimmer Cool Palette. The thing with these 88 palettes are that they give you almost every colour you need in a box. The quality is not top class but good to have just in case you need some shades and don’t want to buy them separately. They also work nicely as base shades. I was worried about the shipping because a few shades always come damaged with these palettes but thankfully they came all nice and new. I already did a purple smokey look with these which is why you see the Sigma brushes purple!
They have just recently started Shipping to India. And they give free shipping above orders worth Rs.2300 which is quite easy to hit because you do see a lot of high end stuff there. My order came in 3-4 days which pleased me the most. Everything came nicely bubble wrapped and secure. The Luxola guys offered me a coupon code which would give all VNA readers 25% off on their first order. Its BLX-ANSHITA and valid from 22nd October – 22nd November. Kudos to Luxola.com for stocking some of my favourite brands and shipping to India.
