How it looks on me.

My experience:
When I first received it, It seemed a perfect bronzer; a bronzer/powder to add a dash of color to the face. All over bronze powder for the bronze glow. When I swirled my finger on the product, the color together was quite dark to use as a bronzer, but seemed perfect for sculpting the face. The darkest color in the pan is pretty intense, the lightest color helps it to tone it down, and highlight the cheekbones. When applied, it wasn't as dark as I was expecting it to be.

At first, I didn't like it at all. I found it sheer and it was hardly visible when applied. I gave it a try every day to see how it looks with different techniques and ways. If you want a natural look, keep a light hand; build it up accordingly. It's a perfect everyday bronzer, which can be used to fake tan in summers or for a nice bronze glow-y look.

Now that I have used it almost every day I actually like it. It is not as sheer, neither too dark - just PERFECT! You can also use it to accentuate cheek bones, by sculpting it. Sometimes, I also use it as a bronzer for all over the face. It gives a very natural finish, without making you look orange-y or too brown, unlike some bronzing powders. When I don't want a blush, I use it all over the cheeks, just to add some color.

Keep in mind, it is a bit powdery, hence you will notice fall out while you swirl the brush in the pan. That is what I don't like about some of the products; you waste a lot when they have fall outs, plus it makes the pan messy. I always have to dust off the product before closing the lid. What I like about it, is the staying power. It stays put for good 5 to 6 hours, without changing the color or intensity. The quality of the pan and the lid is sturdy too. For the price of it, I am IMPRESSED with the quality, quantity and of course, the results.

  • Stays true to color.
  • Long lasting.
  • Affordable.
  • Can be used lightly, as well as to sculpt the cheek bones.
  • Perfect for summers - gives a nice tan look.
  • Powdery.
  • Fall outs.
All in all, I like this product and I use it almost every day for work. If you can ignore some of the cons, this product is just perfect. 

You can get this from Shopping Xtravagance for PKR 650. 

Which is your favorite bronzing powder? Do you own any product by N.Y.C?

Review - Christine's Face Contouring.

Hello pretty girls!

Today, finally I am going to review about Christine Face Contouring powder. You girls have been requesting it for so long, but I wanted to try it and go out for hours, so that I can actually talk about it.
Let's get started!
This is the packaging of the contouring powder. It is available at Naheed Supermarket for Rs.250/
It will be easily available at any cosmetic's store, because it it not a high-end brand. 
This is how it looks like, it comes in different shades. At the back of the box, the sticker is of no.2, and at the back of the casing as you can see, it's no.1 :) Check the shade you want. I picked another one which had too dark brown shades. This one was the lightest. You can use this as a bronzer as well. I hardly use bronze because I look dark. But, for some reason, I am obsessed with bronzers these days and I want to try them from different brands. This is the first one I have and I kind of like it, as it is not too dark for me.

About the product:

Makeup not only enhances your features, but also hides your flaws too!
Hiding my dark circles and finding the RIGHT concealer for the under eye circles has always been a BIG task for me. I have tried quite a few concealers, from different brands; none of them matched or could hide my dark circles properly. Until I came across orange corrector by Krylon.
