JUST HERBS HERB ENRICHED SKIN TINT REVIEW

Hey guys! How are you all doing?

I am someone who prefers light to medium coverage foundations rather than full coverage ones. Now when I heard about the Just herbs skin tint which is makeup and skincare in one, I was really interested in giving it a try. I mean, what could be better than a foundation that takes care of your skin whilst giving some coverage. Now I have been trying this for some time and let me tell you more about it.

Claims by the brand

  • Compliments skin shade and blends easily
  • Blurs imperfections, masks large pores and primes blemishes
  • Nurtures skin tone and provides sun protection
  • Works well with your six step regime
  • Suits all skin types

Price and availability

120 AED (aprox. $33) for 40ml product. Available online at the official website

My review of the Just herbs herb enriched Skin tint

thebeautymascot/just herbs skin enriched skin tint

The Just herbs herb enriched skin tint comes in a light-weight glass bottle with a pump dispenser. The bottle is quite sturdy hence you don’t have to worry about travelling with it. I even carried it with me during my trip to India. But I have a problem with the pump dispenser. The product does not come out properly and when it does, too much product comes out. So I remove the cap and then take what is required. I don’t trust the pump and I hate wasting anything, especially makeup 😀

thebeautymascot/just herbs herb enriched skin tint

The just herbs herb enriched skin tint has a creamy texture.When I saw some demo videos of using the product, I felt that this does not blend properly. But to be honest, the skin tint blends so well into the skin, giving a velvet matte finish. Love how natural it looks, as if you have no makeup, but as if you have beautiful and radiant skin.

The skin tint comes in just one shade, a light shade with pink undertones. But works well on most skin tones. I have tried it on fair, medium and dark skin tones and found that it works well on all skin tones. But works best for fair and medium skin tones.

Speaking about coverage, it gives medium coverage, a minimal medium coverage, I must say. So if you need a full coverage or if you have to hide severe acne  or blemishes this is not for you. But you can use a concealer on top of it just as you would while using any other light to medium coverage foundations. And remember this one can actually help in drying out newly formed acne, so you leave it there and let it help you with that issue.

The Just herbs herb enriched skin tint feels very light on the skin. Does not settle into fine lines or dry patches. Diminishes the appearance of large pores. So if not as a foundation, you can use it as a base underneath your foundation.

The best thing about the skin tint according to me is the ingredient list, super impressive ingredient list. Don’t forget to go through the ingredient list. It is organic. Mineral oil and Paraben free.

The skin tint also helps in controlling oil for hours. It has a herbal smell, which reminds me of henna leaves (not of the powder, but the real fresh leaves) .  The skin tint claims to provide sun protection, but the SPF is not mentioned. I believe even if it does give sun protection, the spf level will be low. Hence I  use a sunscreen.

The skin tint stays on your skin for about 6-8 hours. You can either apply it as such or you can set it with a powder. Both ways, I love it!

Overall

In love with:

  • Travel-friendly packaging.
  • Blends into the skin so well, whilst evening out skin tone and providing a radiant glow to the skin.
  • Suits all skin types.
  • Blurs imperfections, large pores. Helps control oil.
  • Organic and contains some really amazing ingredients.
  • Light-medium coverage which stays for 6-8 hours.
  • Contains SPF.
  • Feels very light on the skin.

Not  in love with:

  • The pump dispenser does not work properly.

Final verdict

Once I started using the Just herbs herb enriched skin tint, I have been using it almost everyday. And why not, part skincare and part makeup remember? You will definitely replace this with your everyday foundation. I even  use it on special occasions. But if you need full coverage, then you will be disappointed with the coverage, just gives a light to medium coverage. But you can also use it as a base under your makeup as it not only blurs the imperfections, but also contains amazing ingredients which helps in taking care of your skin.

The skin tint not just gives a glow outside, but  nourishes your skin from inside. I highly recommend this to all and I give it 4.9/5. Wish the pump dispenser worked well too!

thebeautymascot/just herbs herb enriched skin tint

Some might find it a bit expensive as you might think a bb or cc cream can be used instead, but ingredients guys, ingredients used are just brilliant.

I love the product. Have you used it? What are your thoughts?

 

INGLOT NEW LAUNCHES (AQUASTIC CREAM EYESHADOWS & DIAMOND LIP TINTS)

Hello gorgeous people! How are you all doing?

Inglot just recently launched two range of products in the UAE, one for eyes and other for lips. In this post I will be showing you the swatches of both of these. I am not getting into detailed reviews but will be talking about it which means this is kind of like a first impressions post, kind of not fully. But this post contains a  lot of pictures. My next post will be a review of the Aquastic cream eye shadow which will be a detailed one so for now enjoy the swatches.

Inglot Aquastic cream eye shadow swatches

This cream eye shadow from Inglot comes in a transparent tube with an applicator. I don’t think it’s wise to use the applicator directly to apply the eye shadow. Instead, take the eye shadow using the applicator and place it on the back of your hand and and then use a brush, pick the product and apply. It is shimmery, blends well and lasts long.

Priced at $17 (89 AED) available at all Inglot stores. Available in 10 shades, ranging from silvers and golds, to rose, blue and green.

EYE MAKEUP TIPS FOR OILY EYELIDS

Today is a special day for her because she was going on a date with the man of her dreams, the man whom she had a crush on like forever. And today she decided to do the makeup inspired by her favourite YouTuber. And how pretty she looked, the eye makeup was so good it made her beautiful green eyes even more beautiful.She wore the most beautiful dress. And everything was just perfect until she decided to check herself in the mirror for one last time. When she looked into the mirror she thought her best dream had converted to her worst nightmare. Her eyeshadow had creased, her eyeliner was all over. Oh! No! She had racoon eyes.

If this has ever happened to you or at least something similar then this post is for you, my friend!

Everybody has oil glands, the reason for oily eyelids is the glands which are located at the eyelash line. Like I said, everyone has it but some might have oil secretion even more, just like the case of our face. That doesn’t mean a person with an oily face will necessarily have an oily eyelid or vice versa. But I am sure if you have oily eyelids you know the struggle. You know how fast your eyeshadow creases and sometimes your eyeshadow looks patchy or lose intensity and you know how it feels when your eyeliner transfers to your top lids or fades.

We all have been there, me too! Until I learned some amazing eye makeup tips. Three simple steps to a flawless eye makeup for oily eyelids. Here I am not talking about makeup I am talking about the prepping you must do for your eye makeup to last long…and longer!

thebeautymascot/flawless makeup for oily eyelids

The three simple steps 

Trust me it’s easy! I am not asking you to include more time-consuming steps to your makeup routine. These are easier than you thought and very important steps, if you have oily eyelids or not and it takes just 10 more seconds or so but saves the agony of your makeup becoming a mess just after a few hours of application. The process isn’t a big deal but the results are.

Step1: The cleansing 

As much as it is important to apply makeup on a clean face, it is equally important to apply eye makeup on a clean eyelid. You don’t want any leftover mascara or eyeliner on your eyelids. All you have to do is use a makeup remover and wipe off any residual makeup or oil. For the lazy bones, you can use wet wipes instead.

I like using micellar water.

My suggestions:
Bioderma Sensibio H2O Water
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes
Clinique Take the Day off makeup remover

 

Step2: Blotting

Yes, blotting! Even after you have wiped off the eyelids there might still be oil residue on your eyelids. You have to get rid of it as much as you can. If there is oil on your eyelids then once you apply eye makeup it breaks down the makeup, which we don’t want obviously. Moreover, if there is oil on your eyelids, your eye makeup will end up looking patchy. So for a flawless eye makeup, this step is very important.

My suggestions:
Boscia Green Tea Blotting linens
ELF Shine Eraser Oil Blotting sheets

Step 3: Eyeshadow primer

I am quite sure you are already using eyeshadow primers. Eyeshadow primers seal the oils of your skin away from your eye makeup and help your eye makeup last longer. It also helps in better pigmentation of your eye shadows and also a smoother application. You can also use concealer for this, but always remember to dust some loose powder on top of any cream/liquid concealers before applying eye shadows. And, please remember less is more when in this case too. You only need a very small amount of the primer.

My suggestions:

Urban decay eyeshadow primer potion

Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Primer

Nyx HD eyeshadow primer

Then do your magic. Play with eye shadows and create the look you want and may your eye makeup stay all day!

Few other eye makeup tips

  • If you have oily eyelids, start by applying thin layers of eye shadow and then build up the intensity. Don’t start with a thick layer.
  • When choosing eye makeup choose the ones that are long-lasting.
  • If you have extremely oily eyelids it is better to avoid cream eyeshadows at least avoid using these very close to the lashline. But there are some awesome cream shadows like the Maybelline colour tattoo,which stays all day.
  • If you are using cream eye shadows, it will be best if you can layer it with powder ones or at least try to dust a very very small amount of translucent powder on top. Similar is the case with eyeliner, if possible layer your eyeliner with an eyeshadow so that your eyeliner stays put for a longer time.
  • When choosing eye creams, take care of the formula, go for gels or oil-free ones that don’t leave your eyelids greasy. If your favourite eye cream makes your eyes look greasy, then save it for night time.

These are some of the eye makeup tips for oily eyelids for flawless eye makeup. Don’t forget to share your tips and tricks in the comment section below.

 

HUDABEAUTY LIQUID MATTE- IS IT JUST ANOTHER LIQUID LIPSTICK?

thebeautymascot/hudabeauty liquid matte

Everybody in this world is obsessed with liquid lipsticks, I guess! Maybe that’s one reason every other brand is coming up with liquid lipsticks. But when the Queen of the beauty world comes up with something, it must be a thing, right? Come on! who is not obsessed with the fluttery lashes and the amazing lip contours from the HudaBeauty range? And as you might already be aware, the Liquid matte lipsticks are the newest addition to the range. But is the HudaBeauty Liquid Matte just another liquid lipstick? You will find out soon, keep reading.

Product claims

Introducing Huda Beauty’s latest lip beautifier: the Liquid Matte, an unrivaled take on the liquid lipstick. The tried and true comfort-wear formula is infused with an exclusive complex to help maintain the lips’ hydration. The lightweight formula glides on a thin coat of color that intensifies as it sets to a matte, transfer-free finish with amazing staying power. You might even forget you’re wearing anything on your lips at all! Pair it with a complementary Huda Beauty Lip Contour to set off your look.

Huda’s tips for the perfect pout:

1. Prep your lips: To improve the consistency of application, gently exfoliate with a lip scrub. Blot off any excess oils.

2. For maximum impact, line lips using the Lip Contour and fade towards the center.

3. Apply a thin layer of Liquid Matte in the corresponding or lighter shade to fill in the rest.

4. Allow approximately 30 seconds for the color to set and intensify to an opaque finish. Color appearance may vary based on skin tone.

Price and availability

The HudaBeauty Liquid Matte retails for 100AED in UAE and $20 elsewhere and available at Sephoracult beauty Hudabeauty online

My review of the HudaBeauty Liquid Matte

thebeautymascot/hudabeauty liquid matte

First, let me share my experience trying to get the HudaBeauty Liquid Matt.  I had to go a few times to the Sephora where it was launched and had to struggle to get one for myself. When finally I passed the crowd around the HudaBeauty counter there were no trying or testing and just a few shades available. So I took Bombshell. Bombshell is a pretty nude peachy-pink shade and I absolutely love nude pinks.

thebeautymascot/hudabeauty liquid matte

Coming to the packaging, I really have to rave about the box in which it comes. I absolutely love the packaging, which has an image of Huda’s lips, so adorable. The real product comes in a sleek matte tube which is transparent, it definitely looks luxurious. I also love the doe foot applicator which makes applying the product really easy. Now the smell, it smells like cakes, vanilla to be exact. I really love the scent. If you have a sensitive nose, don’t worry the smell fades away once the liquid lipstick is dry.

[Up to 50% Off] Weekly Surprise with Free Shipping! SK-II, La Prairie, Dermalogica, Clinique and more with Great Prices...
I love the formula of the HudaBeauty liquid matte which is wet and runnier than most liquid lipsticks. Also unlike most or I think all liquid lipsticks, the HudaBeauty Liquid matte takes a little longer to dry. This is an advantage in disguise, you get more time to work with it. Have you had experiences when a liquid lipstick sets so quickly and you are not happy with the lip shape or you wish to build up the color and it ended up looking patchy?  Then this lipstick, my friend, is perfect for you! Brilliant formula. You can coat one layer after other, but absolutely no patchiness. But, there is still a but, when not set the liquid lipstick is tacky. Once set the tackiness is reduced but not completely.

thebeautymascot/hudabeauty liquid matte

The HudaBeauty liquid matte glides on really smoothly, feels like butter. The pigmentation is also superb, the shade bombshell which I used is a nude shade, but still is 99% opaque. One swipe is enough. It would be even better if you are using darker shades. The texture is so thin and lightweight. You hardly know you have any lipstick on your lips except when you get that slight tacky feeling, otherwise, the lipstick is so comfortable on the lips.

thebeautymascot/hudabeauty liquid matte

The Hudabeauty liquid matte claims to hydrate your lips. It contains some really hydrating ingredients like beeswax and olive oil. However, I am not sure it gives any extra hydration but it does not dry up your lips like most liquid lipsticks. I have used it with and without using lipliners and found that this liquid lipstick stays intact for a long time. I have had heavy meals, light meals, coffee but still the lipstick didn’t fade. It did fade a bit but completely negligible especially when I have used a lip liner. And when it fades, it fades evenly. The other great thing about this lipstick is that it does not transfer at all when set.

The Hudabeauty liquid lipstick comes in 16 different shades and the shades look different on different skin tones. As I have already mentioned I have Bombshell. I don’t know if you can spot, but the color becomes a bit darker when set. Just take a look at the images below.

NYX CREAM HIGHLIGHT AND CONTOUR PALETTE REVIEW

thebeautymascot/nyx cream highlight and contour palette review

Makeup trends come and go, but one trend which is always cool is the contouring trend and for a good reason. The best thing about contouring is that you can sculpt your face as you desire. If you think only expensive products can give you that Kardashian kind of contouring and sculpting then my friend you are wrong. There are some really awesome drugstore products that can give the same results. Talking about drugstore products, how can we not mention Nyx, Nyx is one of my favorite drugstore brands and most probably yours too! Nyx has recently come up with some really cool contouring products like the contour and highlight pro palette and wonder stick. Today I am going to talk about the latest addition to their contour line, the Nyx cream highlight and contour palette.

Product claims

Say hello to the cheekbones you never knew you already had! Our new Cream Highlight & Contour Palette contains three silky shades that work together to help you highlight, contour and illuminate your most beautiful natural features.

Ingredients

All shades contain the following unless otherwise noted:
Octyldodecanol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Dimethicone, Talc, Silica, Diisostearyl Malate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Microcrystalline Wax/Cera Microcristallina/Cire Microcristalline, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax/Copernicia Cerifera Cera/Cire de Carnauba, Silica Dimethyl Silylate [nano], Tocopheryl Acetate, Caprylyl Glycol, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Alumina, Water/Aqua/Eau, BHT, Phenoxyethanol. MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR (+/-): Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).

Availability and price

Price is AED 78 ( I got it for 58 on sale at landmarks shop )It is also available at ulta and Amazon

What I think of the Nyx cream highlight and contour palette

The Nyx cream highlight and contour palette comes in a black rectangular packaging, which definitely looks good. One side of the box is transparent which allows you to have a clear idea of the shades. The palette is available in three different shades, Light, Medium and Dark and you can choose the one that is best suited for your complexion. You already know right that you have to use one or shades darker than your skin tone for contouring and one or two shades lighter for highlighting. I am not sure if you can find your perfect shade out of the three available shades, but hopefully, you can. As far as I am concerned, Medium works for me so I chose Medium.

Each palette consists of three shades, a contour shade, a highlight which is matte and a shimmery highlight. The shades are brilliant. The texture is what you might have a problem with. The texture is soft but not really creamy or silky as they claim it to be, especially that of the matte highlight, which makes the product not so easy to blend, you can still blend though. But that is not really an issue, as we have already seen makeup queens using oils for even their Anastasia Beverly hills contour palette, so you can do the same here. I use argan oil, which already is a part of my skincare routine, you can choose any facial oils you are using. 3-4 drops will do. After adding oil, the problem of blending is solved as this thing then blends like a dream. The texture becomes so smooth and silky after adding oil.

thebeautymascot/nyx cream highlight and contour palette review
Swatches without oil

thebeautymascot/nyx cream highlight and contour palette

Now speaking about the pigmentation, I feel that it is not highly pigmented but still great. You can always build it up if required. I don’t actually call it a con especially if you are new to contouring. If you are new to contouring, then there are chances of using more product and messing everything up. So this might be a boon for you as products like this work better for you. I also like the sheer contouring it does, looks natural and as I said you can build it up if you want it to be more dramatic.

thebeautymascot/nyx cream highlight and contour review

Coming more specific to my shade, Medium, I love all the three shades. The contour shade is a warm brown shade and gives a beautiful contour and perfectly blends in with my skin. It blends quite ok if you don’t add oil but it is better to because adding oil makes it easier to blend. The highlight shade is also great, conceals my dark circles and highlights the areas I want to be highlighted. But you really need to add oil to work with it otherwise, it might end up being chalky and  is difficult to blend. The third shade which is the shimmer  gives a beautiful glow to your cheekbones, cupid’s bow, bridge of your nose,inner corner of the eye and wherever you prefer. It gives a silverish glow which is ok but I’m not really very happy about it. The shimmery particles are so minute which is nice. You don’t really have to add oil to the shimmer, but the results are awesome if you do.

I normally set it with powders and advice you to do the same for best results. The contour stays intact for 8+hours which is great.

Overall verdict

The Nyx cream highlight and contour palette is a really good contour palette. The price is really affordable. The pigmentation is not very high but perfect for a natural looking contour. It is not really blendable when used as it is, but when mixed with oil blends like a dream. Overall I think this palette is great if you are looking for a decently priced contour palette and is perfect for beginners as it is really easy to useI give it a rating of 4.2/5 and I am sure you won’t be disappointed in the Nyx cream highlight and contour palette.

LUSH COSMETICS EMOTIONAL BRILLIANCE FANTASY EYELINER REVIEW

Hello, my beautiful friends! How are you all doing?

thebeautymascot/lushemotiona lbrilliance eyeliner fantasy

We, ladies, are always obsessed with gold and sparkling stuff, be it jewelry, dresses or anything . Today I am going to speak about my experience trying out a gold eyeliner from one of my favorite brands Lush cosmetics. The whole idea seemed strange to me because Lush cosmetics boasts of their products being as close to nature as possible, then gold liner?. So honestly speaking, I expected the gold eyeliner to be more yellowish, less glittery and one which fades away really fast. To find out if that is the case and my experience in general, read further.

Product claims

The more fantastic, the better! Apply this quick-setting liquid gold liner for a brilliant, lustrous gold look that lets the world know you’re inspired. Fantasy’s no-smudge, quick-drying base means you can apply and get on with your day, and it won’t budge until you remove it. Fantasy is saturated with rich shimmering metallic pigments, ensuring a consistent color each time you apply. Fantasy; you’re allowed.

Vegan: Fantasy’s vegan formula means it’s free of all animal products!

No-smudge formula: Fantasy and Independent eyeliners feature a quick-setting, smudge proof base that dries immediately after application.

The finishing touch: Try pairing Fantasy with our gentle Eyes Right mascara for beautifully accented lashes.

Ingredients

Eyebright Infusion (Euphrasia officinalis) , Water (Aqua) ,Glyceryl Stearate , PVP , Hydroxyethylcellulose , Synthetic Fluorphlogopite , Titanium Dioxide , Iron Oxides , Ferric Ferrocyanide , Methylparaben , Propylparaben . *Occurs naturally in essential oils

Price and availability

Price is 90 AED for 5g and available at all Lush stores and online.

What I think about the Lush cosmetics emotional brilliance eyeliner

thebeautymascot/lush cosmetics emotional brilliance eyeliner

Let me begin by saying I truly love the name “Fantasy”, fantasy how awesome right?. The eyeliner comes in a cute little glass bottle which is transparent and gives a clear idea about the color of the eyeliner. It has a black screw cap with a brush/applicator at one end. The brush is so thin, which helps you in getting the most precise line.  The brush is not that long but its ok. The fine tipped brush is not only great for thin lines, you can make it thick, flick it out or do whatever you want with ease. The emotional brilliance eyeliner does not have any odor.

thebeautymascot/lush cosmetics emotional brilliance eyeliner

There are so many other shades available in the range,Fantasy is the gold one out of it. By gold, I mean real gooold ( Okay not real gold, you know what I mean), not just a yellow-ish eyeliner, but a lustrous gold, which sparkles and glitters. I have found most gold eyeliners to be more yellow than gold. But this one is the right amount of yellow with the right sparkle. Such a gorgeous gold! And what you see in the bottle is what you get on your eyes. It is also highly pigmented and sets super quick.

thebeautymascot/lush cosmetics emotional brilliance eyeliner

Speaking of the consistency, it has a thick but not-so-thick consistency (if that makes sense!). Glides on really well. The fine tipped brush makes it easy to work with.  Moreover, it is so comfortable to wear and not heavy nor sticky.

The staying power is yet another plus  of the emotional brilliance eyeliner by Lush cosmetics. It stayed on my eyelids for almost 6+ hours, after which I removed. My lids are extremely oily so this is definitely a plus!

It is also very easy to remove the eyeliner, just wash and gently rub with your fingers and it’s off. Waterproof makeup is good, but I like makeup which comes off so easily. But that does not mean it is not suitable for summers when you sweat a lot, you have to rub for removing.

thebeautymascot/lush cosmetics emotional brilliance eyeliner

 

thebeautymascot/lush cosmetics emotional brilliance eyeliner

Final verdict

The  Lush cosmetics emotional brilliance eyeliner in Fantasy  is a lustrous gold eyeliner which is highly pigmented, sets so quickly and lasts long. The brush is also fine tipped, so easy to get a precise line.

The beautiful gold eyeliner can not only be used as an eyeliner, you can use it as an eyeshadow, smudge it for a softer look, can be used for glitter cut crease and also on lips, yes lips! along with a lipstick of your choice for metallic lips.

I give it a 4.9/5 and I think you guys should give it a try if you are in a hunt for a gold eyeliner.

Have you guys used the emotional brilliance eyeliner from Lush cosmetics? If yes which is your favorite shade? Which is your favorite gold eyeliner?

Disclaimer: This was a birthday gift from Lush cosmetics, but my review is not affected by it and is 100% honest.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GOSH CLICK ‘N CONCEAL CREAM CONCEALER REVIEW

Hi dear gorgeous people! How are you all doing?

Hi guys, How are you all?

 

If you are wondering where have I vanished, I had to go to India for my dear sister-in-laws wedding and if you have at least heard of big fat Indian weddings, you know what kept me busy for the two weeks! I also was the official make up artist for the bride, so had to do do some shopping prior to my travel. Now that I am back I thought of starting with a fun post, a drugstore makeup haul. Now who does not like make up haul posts,right! I am doing a drugstore one, because I got some amazing products, I can’t wait to share. So let’s begin!

The products I purchased are from Gosh, Nyx and Rimmel London,Karaja and Deborah Milano. I got these from Lifestyle stores.

Gosh Cosmetics

I have not tried any products from Gosh, so thought of trying out a few and ended up buying some awesome products.

Smokey nudes palette

I have not tried this eye shadow palette yet, but love it even before using. Love the shades, great for both day and night make up. The palette contains 10 different shades and also a double-sided brush. The best part is that Gosh sells this eye shadow palette for just AED 90, I will be using this quite often, I am sure and my detailed review will be up soon.

Giant Blush

I love that this blush comes in form of a stick. Super easy to use and the shade I have is 04 Passion, which is a beautiful pink shade.

Mineral powder

I can’t really comment about this powder at this stage, since I have hardly used it. But so far so good!

Click’n Conceal 

I really love this concealer. Perfect for the under eye, instantly brightens the under eye. I have used this concealer a couple of times now and totally love it. Review will be up soon.

Velvet touch Lipstick 

One range of products which everybody is raving about from Gosh are their lipsticks. I actually thought of buying lipsticks and ended up buying all the other stuff. The lipstick I bought is the shade 010 Matt Smoothie, which is a perfect neutral pink shade which suits my skin tone so well. I have worn this a few times and love how long-lasting these are. Spreads on like butter but gives a matt finish, so good!

Forever lip shine

This is an amazing lip crayon, which has a fine tip when compared to other lip crayons. The shade I bought is 010 Lady like.

Velvet touch lip liners

I bought two lip liners 002 Antique Rose and 003 Cardinal Red, which are the closest match to the lipsticks I bought.

Forever metallic eye shadow stick

Ever since my Inaya came to my life, eye shadow sticks have been a boon for me, so easy to use and blend. So I can’t have enough of them. The shade I bought is Blue.

Kate Moss collection sculpting palette

I have been thinking of getting this one for a while now. The sculpting palette consists of a highlighter, a bronzer and a blush.

Magnif’eyes eyeshadow

This is another eye shadow stick which is two sided with two different shades. The shade I got is 002 Kissed by rose gold. Love the name, Kissed by rose gold.

Scandal eyes Lycra flex mascara

I can swear by the Rimmel Scandal eyes Rockin’ curves, love it so so much! But this time for a change thought of trying the Lycra flex, I have used it just once and I can tell this one is no competition to the Rockin’ curves, but just an average mascara.

Exaggerate eye liner

Just a normal eye liner.

Kate Moss long lasting Lipstick

The shade I bought is 106, which is a fuschia pink.

NYX Cosmetics

Nyx butter lipstick

I love this range from nyx! The shade I got is BLS12 Little Susie, which is a beautiful coral pink.

Karaja

Brush No.8

I don’t know about you, I have never heard about Karaja, my bad! I just got a smudging brush from the brand and I must say the brush is really good. A high quality brush.

Deborah Milano

Lipliner

The shade is 05, which compliments the Rimmel lipstick I bought.
