100 day no buy challenge -Update 2- Makeup Heroes

Guys this is tougher than you think. Its absolutely not easy to not buy any beauty products and make the duds you purchased work for you. I find using up makeup so much more difficult.

Some of the products that have worked wonderfully

Nyx Concealer in a Jar- Good thick creamy formula. Works perfectly well as a base for lipsticks or eyeshadows that do not show up or apply patchy. (Maybelline 14 hr range being a case in point). Nyx is very expensive if you see what its original price was in USD and its price in INR. But even then it is soooo good. People please stop selling makeup to us at twice or thrice its US price. Also amazing range of shades, matched my NC42 perfectly. This product lasts forever as a little goes a long way.

Kryolan Wet and Dry - This powder is still going strong. I admit I used to save this for special occasions. Its 1200 rs for a compact. But due to the no buy challenge I have been using this wet as a foundation. This product is a must buy if you have oily skin…

Skincare Staples Review - Lotus Herbals Safe Sun 3 In 1 Matte Look Daily Sunblock - SPF 40 PA+++

As a beauty blogger, running out of something is a big huge achievement. Most of us often succumb to a newer product before we are finished with what we have on our shelf. Sometimes it is also a great process of self discovery. We realize that we have it in us to see a challenge/product through.

So without further ado, here is my first empties, since the list is that small, I am doing a review of these products as well. Also reviewing these two since I have used these two for a while now, the gel for about 6 months and the sunblock for 4 years or more. And believe me when I say it, I will always repurchase this. So here is the review.

First up, sunscreen.  Here is what it is really called- Lotus Herbals Safe Sun 3 In 1 Matte Look Daily Sunblock - SPF 40 PA+++
Long name right.  But I simply go and ask the shopkeeper for Lotus Sunscreen for oily skin and he gives me this. Always. That in itself is a big plus, easy availability.
