Today, I’m going to talk about a product that is totally essential for an everyday makeup look and I’m pretty sure you have guessed it right and yes, of course, it is foundation. Plus, as we are residing in winter cold months, we can’t rely on just tinted moisturisers or BB cream alone just like in summer and for winter months, an ideal base needs to give a perfect coverage and a good foundation alone can give a quintessential answer to this query and my latest find on this category is MAC Studio Face And Body Foundation and so, let me get straight into its exquisite features which standout as a monopoly from its peer competitors and so, stay tuned!

Review: IsaDora Eye Shadow Quartet

IsaDora eye shadow quartet

Is it fair enough to have too many eye shadow palettes? If you ask me, I would say, it is a girl’s dream albeit and my heart always starts pounding when I see those luscious, eye-catching hues and if you have followed me for a while, then you might have known that I’m always on a hunt for new brands that are quality wise, in par with high end and money wise, budget friendly at the same time and viola! I hit the target this time as I bumped onto an amazing Swedish brand, IsaDora. So, stay tuned to see what’s in-store for?

Untitled-8

Truly speaking, I’m so impressed with the amazing quality of the product as they come as fragrance free that are also clinically tested but not on animals and so, that is a good start and then, their products are designed in such a way that is suitable to use for sensitive eyes and sensitive skin and isn’t it amazing? Most of all, I love their premium quality at a very affordable price tag.

Untitled-7

Packaging of this quartet looks stunningly sleek with black canvas and embossed with a silver note of brand name to the middle right and when you tend to open, it comes along with a compact mirror to the top and a quad eye shadow palette to the base and so, it is extremely travel friendly as the clip on lock is best served on the go with complete protection of mess free eye shadow.

IsaDora eye shadow quartet

Formula is simply amazing and I have tried 02 Pink Dream and 01 Dragonfly and the texture is creamy and silky in touch and it promises to give a long-lasting finish that is up to 12 hours provided if you have applied the quintessential eye shadow base. Then, moving along to its intensity, it is well pigmented and pays off really well and the depth of staying power  is also good. Besides, if you are looking to build on further with eye makeup look, then you can blend in as per desired.

Untitled-4

Here comes the best part as it talks more kind of beauty, science and technology which I’m always curious about as I really love the innovative technicality each brand uses in so that they could use their product to be unique rest among the others and IsaDora is not in exception either as they use Liquid Powder Technology in their eye shadow which brings in an unbelievable coverage and also, makes the flawless finish every time you use.

Untitled-5

  1. Start the procedure with a well washed and clean eyes.
  2. Apply a coat of eye shadow base as it acts as a base for the whole eye makeup look.
  3. I always fan around the biscuit like beige shade to the crease area so that catches the light swiftly.
  4. I always play around with the hues by starting the lightest colour to the inner eyelid area and then, apply the desired base colour to the middle area and finishing off sensibly with a darker shade to the outer corner of the area.
  5. Then, you can build up as per required.

Untitled-2

  • Exclusive formula
  • Liquid powder technology
  • Love the packaging of palette
  • 14 variations of palette range
  • Creamy in texture
  • Silky soft finish

Review:Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil.

 

urban decay 24/7 glide-on eye pencil

Are you a great fan of eye pencils? And, to be honest,  I’m not as good as Kim Kardashian who uses literally 3 different kinds of eyeliner every single day to finish an eye makeup look that needs so much patience and effort – really commendable, isn’t it? But still, I love my go-to eye makeup look and also, always on a hunt to try some good finds here and there. Moreover, as you might have guessed, yes, today I will be guiding through an eye product from an amazing brand, which is none-other-than, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil that is suitable to wear on all occasions. So, stay tuned girls!!!

Untitled-8

These versatile, travel-friendly, waterproof eye pencils are easy to use and as the name says, it literally glides onto your eyes with a creamy texture and we all know, when it comes to eye pencils, black and brown shades are quiet wearable neutrals but instead, this stunning set consists of other favourites like silvery white, metallic copper and edgy deep brown. Plus, on the other hand with budge free consistency of the formula is so easy to apply just on its own or some blend actions as well.

Untitled-7

It’s packaging comes along with a silvery finished top and bottom and the rest explains the actual colour of the pencil and so, it is clearly visible on what to choose and for which occasion to wear. Plus, the silver coated calligraphic finish of name and brand details brings in the exclusive note of high-end detail.

Untitled-4

 

urban decay 24/7 glide-on eye pencil

Now, let’s talk about technology that too in terms of beauty. So, for me, if I’m using a high-end product, I always look for the special ingredients that makes it as a wise buy and I should say, UD has never left a stone unturned as each 24/7 glide-on eye pencils are packed with 50% moisturising ingredients that are suspended by a water proof formula and doesn’t it sound amazing? And, here comes one more reason to use these highly innovative pencils as they are vegan friendly – yes girls, you’ve heard it right. To finish off, just like icing on the cake, these pencils are nourishingly packed with cottonseed oil, jojoba oil and Vitamin E. Well, what more can you ask for, isn’t it?

Untitled-5

Whether it is a winged eyeliner or an ever classic smokey eye effect, eye pencils are a must-have staple as you can literally line either right above the upper lashes are bring some drama on the lower lash line and whatever it may be, these pencils gives you an assurance of smoothly defined steaks of lines. Now, for more innovative approach – why not try the current trending graphic eyeliner? And, one great example is pictured below.

Winter Skincare Routine

neal yards remedies, kind natured, almond oil, lip balm

I hope you are all having a wonderful time and looking forward to the most awaited festive season and yet another successful year to come. Now, when it comes to winter skincare, it is all about the extra effort that you take care with your tender loving skin and that is the only way to beat the winter blues, isn’t it? Well, I’m not an expert in skincare but still, I always follow 3 universally accepted simple rules of cleansing, toning and moisturisation and I’m sure that your skin looks much more healthier, glowier than ever before. Now, let me unleash my simple pleasure of skincare regime so, come along with me.

granire micellar water, amie exfoliant, clinique facial wash

Cleansing – Part 1:

The most and primitive part of skincare routine is cleansing and it is the most vital feature that one has to follow twice a day regularly and I always trust the drugstore friendly beauties like Garnier micellar cleansing water and simple kind to skin cleansing facial wipes and the astonishing part is you don’t need to spend a fortune for it.

Cleansing Part 2:

The next step after removing makeup is a good worthy facial wash and my current favourite is Clinique liquid facial soap mild and another recent find is Amie purifying facial wash that is free from parabens, sulphates, mineral oils and animal extract.

Cleansing Part 3:

Exfoliation is the key for a successful skincare regime and my store bought ingredient, honey is the only super food that I always use as an exfoliant as the natural source of inbuilt vitamin E not only takes away dead skin but it also, helps to rejuvenate my skin to get ready for the next step of skincare routine.

Toning:

The body shop tea tree skin clearing mattifying toner, clinique clarifying lotion

To be honest, there was a time when I used to skip this step but now, I made it as an essential element of skincare regime as the goodness and cleanliness it brings in is beyond expectation and with a splash of toning water on a mild sweep of cotton pad makes your skin to look much clearer and toned. Plus, the toner that I use in morning to get that refreshing feel is Clinique clarifying lotion 2 and to finish off the day with a nourishing statement is TBS tea tree toner.

 

estee lauder advanced night repair synchronised recovery complex, clinique surge intense hydrator, elizabeth arden skin protectant, simple kind to skin eye roll on, clinique dramatically different moisturising lotion

Moisturisation Part 1:

Serum has been ruled as a sole monopoly among the Korean beauty for a long, long time but until Estee Lauder took it as a privilege to introduce to the modern western world and they became so successful and now, it is been celebrated and cherished by millions of beauty lovers and popular celebrities all around the world and their Estee Lauder advanced night repair synchronised recovery complex II is the best serum that I always love about.

Moisturisation Part 2:

Now, I’m going to talk about a multi-tasker that is used as an emollient to heal sunburns, rehydrate chapped lips, smooth elbows, make shinier legs and many more and you must have guessed it right and yes, it is Elizabeth Arden eight hour skin protectant and my way of using this product is as a beauty-cheat face mask and to be honest, it is like having a protecting membrane on your face but only disadvantage is their aroma otherwise, it works at its best.

Moisturisation Part 3:

Clinique is one of those brands where you pay an extra penny for the quality and the results that you get are price worthy and that is why, so many beauty queens use and repurchase their products regularly and me not in exception either. I use Clinique dramatically different moisturising lotion as under makeup moisturisation and it makes my skin to look glow-y and also, keeps my makeup to keep intact all throughout the day and doesn’t it sounds amazing? On the other hand, for a bit of intense moisturising treatment to my  face, I always opt for their best selling product, Clinique moisture surge intense skin fortifying hydrator.

Other Skincare Stories:

If you are worried about dark circles, eyeballs and lack of sleep, then try the Simple kind to skin revitalising eye roll on as it acts so gentle to your skin and the refreshing ingredients brings in an instant oomph to your eyes.

If you are looking for a natural and organic skincare, then give a thumps up to the much relived skin element, Neal’s Yard almond oil and I use this regularly to massage it on my legs after shower and the lightness and richness of the non-greasy texture of the oil is the latest find that I proud about and I totally loving it and the best part is, it sinks into your skin right away.

Worried about dry lips, then break the ice by trusting onto the kind natured manuka honey lip balm and it feels like pressed honey on your lips and I use it as a lip mask during night.

Last but not least, Burt’s bees lemon butter cuticle cream is like lemon scented vaseline on   your nails and it feels refreshing meanwhile moisturising too.

Have you ever used any of these products before? If so, share along your personal experiences and I would always love to hear from you.
