We all know that hair care is a very important routine next to skin care and in further, no matter whatever age group you fall in, still hair care is considered as a crucial step that we follow in our day-to-day life. Moreover, with warmer months bordering around the corner, it is much needed to prep up our haircare regime in an effective way and just like skincare, haircare also changes to seasonal variations and this time, I have picked up two cool products: one is to protect against heat damage and the other is to nourish the hairline and so, let’s get started.

Fudge Urban Feel The Heat Protection Spray:

DGJ Organics – Argan Oil:

Even though, there are so many hair care products in the market but only a few are organic and this time, I bumped onto a product that could be described more than a hair care product as they come in a WOW factor of organic statement and the real influence of Moroccan Argan oil explains everything about the richness of this product.

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!

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?

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.

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.

  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.
