Shopping day at Makeup City

Being a makeup artist & a beauty blogger I explore a lot of makeup/beauty products, especially locally available products. My main focus is always to find good products available here to help out the masses. Trust me, we do have a lot of brands and products that we overlook and are under-rated.

Makeup City opened up its new outlet, a pretty spacious one at Lucky One Mall. Makeup City is one place that is a mother of a lot of different makeup, skin care and hair care brands. Brands you would find at Makeup City are: Krylon, Sweet Touch, Femina, Framesi, Janssen Cosmetics, GOSH Makeup, Babyliss and Just For Men. The shop has all you need, from makeup, skin and hair to pick from once you enter. From studioline makeup, to everyday makeup. Also, they have high quality professional Krylon and Sweet Touch Makeup brushes.

As usual, a makeup enthusiast cannot resist buying something once they enter the makeup shop. At least I cannot and hence I ended up buying these three out of which one is my all time favorite while the rest two are the things I picked for the first time.

1. Sweet Touch Eye Shadow: I always overlooked and thought they weren't as pigmented, but to my surprise when I swatched them at the store I fell in love with how pigmented they were. The texture is buttery, application is easy and it blends effortlessly. Bought this mauve color which works amazing all over the lids as well as on the crease to give some drama and color to the eye look, especially black smokey eyes.
Price: 350

2. Sweet Touch eye shadow brush: Honestly, I had no idea about the brush range or when they came out with them. I saw for the first time and picked it up instantly. The bristles are soft, just like a brush with goat hair and picks up a good amount of product. It's a great flat eye shadow brush which not only works best on the lids, but due to its flat corner, works best for the precise application in the inner tear duct & lower lash line.

3. Sweet Touch Nail Color - Bright Pink: This brand has been my all time favorite for nail colors since I started collecting them. If you follow my blog since the day one, you would know and if you go through my blog in the section "Manicure", you will see most of the nail colors are by Sweet Touch. For the past 2 years, I favor it more because they changed the formula and the brush applicator. It's easy to apply, it is opaque and it doesn't chip; three main things I see in a nail color. Best part, Sweet Touch has a variety of shades to select from. From nudes, bold to vibrant and neon colors as well as glittery nail colors - a great range to select from for everyone.
Price: 220

Apart from these, Krylon brand is one of my favorite in terms of quality and color pay off.

Signs of a good makeup product (what I see while I shop):
1. Pigmentation: Good color pay off & true to it's color.
2. Packaging: Eye catching, pretty & sturdy.
3. Staying Power: Stay fresh and stay put for at least 3/4 hours.
4. Coverage: Opaque if full coverage.
5. Fragrance: No smell or good smell.

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:

[Review] Krylon TV Paint Stick - Orange

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.
