Davis Eye Jumbo pencil 09 - Review & swatch

Hola girls ! how are you all ? well I guess being in such a hectic routine lets me make appearance on weekends only, though I want to right more ! Any way straight to the post . Today I am reviewing Davis Eye jumbo pencil in shade 09. Lets begin !

The Product:

This comes as a sturdy double ended pencil with two different shades at both ends. The colors are glitttery and glide on easily . Two different colors in the same pencil that compliment each other & can be used to create a love eye look with just one pencil ! lets have a look at this lovely now :)
Davis Eye Double Colour Pencil- 09

Davis Eye Double Colour Pencil- 09 ( Green end)

My Experience:

I got my eyes on this pencil for a long time in a local retail shop so as soon as I had to get something from there I grabbed it along. ( this just reduces the GUILT of breaking your vow of NO MORE COSMETICS :P) . It is a lovely dual ended pencil that offers quite a large range to select from . I personally like multi purpose pencils that either offer use as lip and eye pencil or offer two colors together. This is a  lovely dull gold and a lime green color. I got this because I was hooked to the green colour. The colour pay off is very good. I use it to highlight my lower lash line and it give a subtle shine and shade that just makes your eyes stand out. Both colors have a bit of glitter in them that is a little chunky . Those with sensitive eyes might not like the sensation if it gets into eye. It stays all day long provided I don't rub or wash my eyes. Overall, I am in love with this pencil and yes I am going to buy some more too ! 

The swatches:

As you can see, these are exactly the same shades as shown on the pencil. These are smooth and glide on easily. I haven't tried yet but putting then on over eyeshadow primer , these can be used as eye shadows too. I just got this idea , will try it and let you guys know :)
You can see the glitter specks in the swatches. These are neither big chunky ones nor very fine. I personally have no problem with them at all :)

I Like :

  • Two colours in one pencil makes it travel friendly 
  • Beautiful shades
  • Can be worn on lower lash line with no fading
  • Can be used over whole lid as eye shadow
  • Long lasting ( 5-6 hours)
  • Easily available
  • Affordable

I Don't Like:

  • Glitter might irritate sensitive eyes
  • Not water proof

My Rating:

I give a 3/5 for the glitter and not being water proof.

Where to buy ?

You can get this from local cosmetics shop ( like me ) or you can order it online from Beauty Tips, on facebook. She has almost all the shades :)

Will I buy again ?


Have you tried this eye pencil before ? What is your favourite pencil and color this fall ? Do let me know in the comments below .

Music Flower Eyeliners - Review & swatch

Hello lovelies ! it was such a super busy week that I couldn't manage to write anything even if i wanted to . But my favorite time of the week is here so its time to indulge in some other beauty product :D Today I am reviewing Music Flower Eyeliners in Blue & Purple. Those who have read my previous posts would know I truly love to play with colors on my eyes be it mascara or liners. So I came across these pretty little things and I knew instantly I wanted these beyond any doubt ( Thanks to my best friend who always tells me to get such stuff and then put it on too :P ) .Enough rambling now back to eyeliners :D

The Product:

These liners come by the name of Music Flower 24 hour Liquid Eyeliner. It comes in a 4 ml colored plastic bottle that usually depicts the liner color inside it ( I said IF because there is no black bottle for black liner rather there is a sticker labeled BLACK on the liner if its black ). There are 5 shades in these eye liners, Black , Brown, Blue, Purple &Green. I got myself Blue and purple. The packaging is really cute. The applicator is felt tip type. Here have a look at these beauties 

Music Flower Eyeliners- Purple & Blue

Music Flower Eyeliner- Applicator

My Experience:

These eyeliners are in my stash for over 6 months now & let me tell you i wear them everyday when I am not wearing black. These liners have a thin consistency that glides smoothly on your skin. Here in the pictures you might feel that the applicators and swatches are a bit clumped, this is because both of these are almost finished and a repurchase with some other color is in my list. The color pay off is simply beautiful. In one layer it gives that smooth lovely color. You can build the color by applying the second layer over it . The applicators are very smooth and don't feel hard on your lids unlike some applicators. You can see in the pictures after all this use , the applicators aren't giving off threads ( I had such experience with a few felt tips liners). Now the staying power is really good . After 8 am till 3 pm working hours, its still on my lids nice and pretty as it was in the morning except for the tear duct area where it budges off a little. It is water proof for sure because it stays even if u wash your face until you rub it off. Even at rubbing it doesn't smudge all over, it just peels off , so no fear of getting a raccoon eye even if you rub your eyes unintentionally :)

The Swatches:

Music Flower Eyeliner- Swatches

Now I must say here that I have applied two coats to get such intense color . In one coat the color is much more lighter then these. I will post those pictures when I get new ones ( That would be in a few days :P)

I Like :

  • Cute Packaging
  • Smooth applicator tip that doesn't feel rough on skin 
  • Beautiful colors available
  • Smooth color rich product
  • Gives instant POP to your eyes 
  • One stroke application
  • Buildable color
  • Enough product to last for months even if used daily
  • Doesn't dry up quickly
  • Easily affordable

I Don't Like;

  • Doesn't stay long on the tear duct area

My Rating:

I give this product a 4/5. 

Would I repurchase it ?

 I will for sure within a few days. 

Where to buy?

I got mine from a local cosmetics shop. You can buy all 5 shades from Beauty Tips, a facebook based online store with a lovely owner <3

Review- Angled Brush 612

Hi everyone ! How is the weekend going on? Lazy weekend for me as usual. I finally managed myself to get up and write a post ( Geeezz I am too lazy :D ). So today I am reviewing angled contouring brush 612 from Beauty Tips

The Brush:

The brush comes neatly packed in a plastic cover with a flap so you can keep it safe after every use. Its a handy brush that you can easily keep in your bag . It is a medium sized brush with a sturdy handle. The hair are smooth orange-brown ombre. Here have a look :)

My Experience:

My experience shopping with Beauty tips was amazing( Haul post Here . Since it was my first online purchase from her,I was quite anxious of all the procedure. But she is such a darling she kept me informed about everything. Now for the brush. When I first opened the parcel and saw this brush I was a little disappointed at the size ( It looked bigger in the picture or so I imagined ). But I thought of giving them a try before making an assumption. It is a flat angled brush. The synthetic bristles are soft but sturdy as it is made for contouring. It picks up just the right amount and transfers it completely to your face.I totally like it for contouring my cheek bones and jawline but I do not recommend it for nose area as it is a bit bigger for nose. You can see the blending result in my MuA Bronzer review HERE

I Like:

  • Strong built
  • Travel friendly packaging
  • Doesn't irritate my skin
  • Blends nicely 
  • Picks up and transfers color nicely
  • Affordable

I Don't Like:

  • Nose area cannot be contoured nicely

My Rating:

I rate this brush a  3/5. You can buy this brush form Beauty Tips  which is a facebook based store. 

I hope you liked my review. Do comment below. Your comments keep me going :)

Stay blessed

NOTD-My first attempt at Stamping Nail Art

Hello lovelies ! How was the weekend ? For me weekend is all about the stuff I have been saving for my free days. For this weekend my agenda was to try out the stuff I haven't yet just because of lack of time . One of them was to try and practice nail stamping . Those who don't know I just got myself a nail stamping set recently ( Haul Post HERE). Well I tried it this weekend and it came out marvelous ( I was actually so dishearted with this stamping nail art, I was thinking of giving it away :P)

But I gave it a chance, sat down with plenty of time in hand and followed each n every step as mentioned and voila! it really worked out :D Except for the fact that I chose the colors pretty stupidly :P Here have a look

A little messy :(

Well how did you guys find my first attempt at nail stamping ? Have you tried it yourself? Do let me know in the comments below.

Stay Blessed !

MUA Bronzer in Shade 2- Review &Swatch

Hello girls! how are you all? It was such a busy week that I couldn't manage to post anything. Well now weekend is here so something needs to be done :) Today I am reviewing MUA Bronzer in Shade . I got it recently with some other MUA stuff, you can have a look at my haul post HERE in case you missed it.

The Product:

Like most of the MUA products, this bronzer comes in a simple plastic container with clear lid. I actually like the simplicity of this :). There are 3 shades of bronzer 1, 2 & 3. I actually wanted shade 3 but it was out of stock so I ordered this shade just to check out what it's like. This is a matte bronzer with absolutely no shimmer in it ( You can see the shimmery specks in the Preview picture at just4girls ,don't be fooled by that ). The texture is very soft actually creamy. Here have a look

My Experience:

I actually got this  bronzer just to try out how it works. I had been searching on the internet for a review on shade 2 but didn't have any luck, so I assumed it wasn't a much adored bronzer. I still got it because I wanted to practice, practice & practice ( which I didn't because of the hectic routine last week ). I gave it a try a couple of times and was pleasantly surprised :) The texture is so soft and sort of creamy that it just glides on your skin. I used it with my finger and angled brush , both times the color pay off  was amazing. It has a slightly orange hue that I don't like much ( Makes my nose look like I have an allergy :-/ ) Still for cheek bones and jawline its perfect. You can control the color easily as its not that dark brown you have to be careful with. You can build the color to your need easily.There is little fall out in the pan but there is a little trick for it I'll tell you guys later.

 There is a little fall out in the pan, but I have come up with this , If you swipe your brush back and forth in the same line you pick up all the fall out and there is no waste of product . Do give this tip a try :)

I Like :

  • The texture is very smooth.It doesn't feel rough on skin & doesn't cause irritation
  • The color payoff is great
  • You can build the color to your need
  • A lot of product (5.7 gm) in just Rs 200/-. Great for beginners who want to try out new things staying in budget
  • Easily blendable

I Don't like:

  • The orange hue it gives on my nose 
  • The fall out ( You can reduce it by following my tip)

My Rating :

I give it a 4/5 just because I don't like the color ( or may be I am still not good at the technique). You can get this product from JUST4GIRLS for Rs.200/- in Pakistan. You can also get this bronzer from MUA online, they ship world wide. 

What do you think of this bronzer ? What is you favorite bronzer? Do let me know :)

Stay Blessed xoxo
