Mascara Galore!

For us Mascara is the most BASIC & IMPORTANT part of creating any makeup look, wether its a full on drag queen makeup or just your everyday no makeup look. A mascara is the one thing that can make or break the whole look.

It doesn’t only make your eyes look more awake and wide but also changes your entire look with just one application but it all depends on the which mascara you use. So, here are a few of our fav mascaras which might help you pick the one that best suits your needs.

Starting with our personal fav one Super Model Mascara from Sivanna. It is a dual side mascara with a fibre and a mascara side. First you coat your lashes with mascara and then apply the fibre and then again seal the fibre with the mascara. Why I LOVE this mascara is because it makes your lashes thinker longer and DARKER than any regular mascara. The curved mascara wand beautifully grabs all the lashes in one go. So, for us it is the Best one out of these but if you are someone who does not like clumpy (because it does clump a little) lashes then this bad boy is clearly not for you.

  3. Dual side
  4. Curved wand

Cons

  1. Makes lashes clumpy

Better Than Sex by Too Faced is all the rage in the mascara world and we vouch for its excellence!  The credit for this mascara goes to its balled tip wand which makes it easier to cover the tiny lashes at the corners of both the end and the beginning of your lashes. It gives you fuller/darker lashes without them clumping or looking any extra, its the most natural looking mascara that cover almost all your lashes due to its well sorted wand. It is not waterproof but they have a waterproof version launched as well.

  1. Balled tip

The next mascara we are going to talk about is a very pocket friendly one. It is one of the best drug store mascara out there Volume Million Lashes by Loreal. It has a cone taper wand which separates your lashes and elongates them and makes sure the focus is on your lashes! The best part is that this one doesn’t clump, so its a win win situation!

Clinique’s chubby lash mascara works exactly the way its name suggests, its a fattening mascara that adds volume to your lashes by the help of its oversized volumizing brush. It is a buildable formula so you can go to any extent with it without it clumping your lashes.

Pros
1. Lightweight
2. Builable
3. Volumizing

Cons
1. Not waterproof

Bad Gal lash by benefit is another volumizing big brush mascara but this one tends to get a little messy while applying, other than that its a good option for a matte black buildable mascara.

The Makeup Bullet

We did it before Nikkie, sorry, had to say this lol.
Beauty blenders have been a life saver for all of us makeup junkies and the makeup bullets are just another addition to the beauty blender family, a younger and a much convenient addition. An alternative of beauty blender have been of all the rage this year on the internet there have been silicon sponges, boiled eggs,  makeup bullets and what not.

It’s a little hard to hold a beauty blender in your hand and merge your eye makeup with a blending blush at the same time, hence, a makeup bullet makes it possible for you to do both simultaneously. You won’t even have to worry about your beauty blender falling from your hand again and again. It fits your finger perfectly and helps reach the little corners and niches  of your face that your regular beauty blender is not able to.

It has a good finish and blends your makeup seamlessly . For people who unintentionally go in with their hands while doing their makeup this product will be a life changer for you as it is a much cleaner substitute.

We love it and would keep on using it but we’ll have to put it out there that it has not stopped us from using our regular beauty blender.

Hope you guys like the review and if you want to see more reviews like this then comment on the Instagram post and we will try our best to bring in more fun product reviews for you!

Favourite Makeup products of 2016 

2016 was the year I & everyone around me was literally OBSESSED with make-up & also the year which made me realize that half of your make-up is your skin so if you need to get your make-up game on point you need to get your skin on point first.

Putting the obvious aside I’ll start with my ABSOLUTE favorite products of the year;

16295188_10154903821885350_936650784_n

– Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation.
I had to get my hands on this one as all the make-up gurus were raving about it & I must tell you guys that it’s worth every penny. I believe we’ve all moved from the full coverage heavy looks to the more natural “no make-up looks” so if you’re looking for a light flawless looking coverage then this     ml bottle is all you’re looking for.

Shade adjustment drops
Although the strong scent might be a turn off for some people it doesn’t seem to bother me, this little dropper is like my little secret to luminous flawless looking skin. You can either use it as a highlighter or add it in your base to give it a little liquidy/luminous touch & also to lighten it’s shade.

– StageLine liquid lipsticks
I was introduced to the brand Stageline on Sobias masterclass & I never knew it’ll turn out to be so GOOD. From the Tv sticks, to the mascaras , to the liquid lipsticks everything is worth more than the price, if I be honest. They’re long-lasting, not drying & pretty vibrant but its a bummer how they only have a few colors so far.

 – Hoola bronzer
Till the start of 2016 I was all about the cream contour but as time went by I realized that 1 – my face doesn’t need that much contouring 2 – I don’t have so much time to cream contour my face on a daily biases & just  then I was introduced to the holla bronzer. It’s SO pigmented & its little brush is the perfect shape for contouring, one swap & I’m good to go with more sculpted cheeks & a contoured nose.

 – Mac Prep & Prime Fix
I haven’t really used the spray as a primer yet but I’ve been using it as a setting spray and it has clearly been doing its job as one, it holds the makeup in place for hours and literally makes it melt into your skin hence giving you a flawless looking skin.

16358439_10154903821775350_725153766_n– Stainiac Lip & Cheek stain
Lip & Cheek stains are a secret ingredient to my makeup routine, they look absolutely natural and stay all day long. I use the Stainiac lip & Cheek stain from the balm cosmetics, i don’t personally like it on the lips but its perfect for the cheeks and I don’t think I’ve used powdered blush ever since I’ve got my hands on this.

16343569_10154903821845350_355346705_n

 – Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
An oil free concealer that covers all types of blemishes and doesn’t look cake-y or bulge up. The only drawback is that they only have a limited amount of shades available.

16344398_10154903816535350_1808780078_n

– Sexy Mama Translucent Powder
Sexy mama does exactly what its supposed to do; powder your face without a trace. Doesn’t cake up & leaves a matte finish.

379401-mlb20331831448_062015-y

– Inglot Gel Eyeliner
Darkest & smoothest liner to work with, glides on your eyelids & doesn’t smudge.
