A Product A Day! Make Up Forever – 4 in 1 Pro Sculpting Brow Palette

Eyebrows! The most important part of our face and I’ll tell you why. Have you ever tried different eyebrows on your face before you can finally tell which one suits you more or most. Eyebrows are seriously game changers for most of us. It can make a huge difference in the overall first impression we give. Even though many people still don’t give too much importance to them but we know the whole deal.

Take a piece of paper and draw 5 similar smileys on it. Then give each one a different eyebrow and you’ll see how it effects the overall look.

Speaking of which I want to share my brow experience with you considering I have had trouble over the years with my brows being tortured at the hands of different women at different salons, each time I walked out with a different shape hence I know the struggle.

Thanks to beauty products now we can define ours and ensure that we get the right shape that best suits our face.

Lately I have been using the MAKEUP FOREVER 4 in 1 Pro Sculpting Brow Palette and I’m immensely pleased with the results. If I were to choose between a gel and a powder based palette, I would prefer the powder one as it gives more natural results.

This palette is simple. Comes in 3 different shades to help you make the right color.

The application is quiet simple.

Step 1: Apply Wax on your brows

Step 2: Out of 3 shades, blend in either 2 or choose one that suits you and apply giving your brows the right shape while using the right strokes

Step 3: Finish the look with the highlighter from the palette to give your brows a clean definition.

 

It’s simple! It’s worth it!

A Product A Day! Mascara

Every woman needs a good mascara for sure. In this world of wearing falsies, having naturally long lashes seems a blessing indeed. So for me choosing the right one is very important. Having tried many mascara’s over the years, I only stick to one.

DMGM MAGNUM eyes collagen boost mascara is AH-mazing! Ever since i have been using this one, I have never felt the need to even try another one. This suits me perfectly as it clearly enhances my long lashes making them appear even longer..Bolder, blacker, darker are three words best suited to this one.

Okay let’s list down what this one has to offer:

  • Lenghtens the lashes
  • Provides good volume
  • Doesn’t smudge or flake
  • Feels light
  • Doesn’t irritate eyes
  • Dries quickly
  • This one takes away the need to wear falsies

The consistency of the product is thick having dark black color with matte finish. Because of its thick texture you need to remove extra product in tube before applying it on to avoid clumps but this is the same reason it provides quite a good volume to lashes.  It really is smudge proof and will not smudge unless you rub your eyes very harshly.

Even though this product has been around for a while now but its definitely worth a review as many of us spend on high end mascara’s but end up with average results.

So ladies! This one is light on the pocket and gives better results than most mascara’s in the market.

A Product A Day! Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette

One of those days when you can’t wait to get a new post off your chest..you can’t wait to get it all out..your feet are restless and your fingers are tingly lol. Yes, you guessed it right! That’s the day you have Huda Beauty on your mind 😀 With the Diva’s new palette launch at Sephora with all those luscious shades to choose from, its hard not to write a review. So let’s begin!

As they say when Huda Kattan creates new products, the world notices. Raising the bar with her unique Textured Shadows, she’s created a palette of highly saturated mattes, chrome pressed pearls, and 3D metal shadows. The best thing is that you can build these colors up. No matter what the occasion, believe me this palette has you covered!

What’s in the palette and what is each of those gorgeous shades all about:

Dubai – a smoky bronze

Fling – a shimmering cranberry

24K – an extravagant gold

Rose Gold – a lust worthy rose gold

Trust Fund – a copper (interesting name for an eye shadow)

Blessed – a vintage gold

Angelic – pink with gold reflections

Moon Dust – a stellar gold illumination

Bossy – a maroonish clay

Flamingo – notice-me pink

Shy – a subtle dusty shade of pink

BAE – a cream-colored base shadow

Black Truffle – a very very dark wicked black

Suede – a smooth gray

Coco – a dark brown

Maneater – a callous, brutal shade of mulberry

Henna – a warm traditional reddish-brown

Sandalwood – an earthy tone

The shades are beautiful. Each shade is enough to last you many many occasions which is what we all want considering the amount we’ve spent on this one, I know many of you have been saving for this beauty. Also in some of her videos she has shown how you can create different nail colors using the palette and toping it off with a transparent nail paint to seal and lock in the color. This seems rather interesting and I would love to try it out. The best thing is that you don’t need two different palettes to create a certain look. I do believe Huda’s next one will bring in hues and shades of blue, green, purple etc. and they are going to be as pigmented as this one. Can’t wait!!!

Let me know how many of you got your hands on Huda’s debut palette.
