EVE PEARL HD DUAL FOUNDATION REVIEW



Picture is Courtesy of EvePearl Website





I have talked about Eve Pearl before on my blog. She is one of my favorite makeup artists with 5 times Emmy Awards winner! She delivers her promises and her brand talks it self!

Her brand is amazing as she is. Hands down Eve Pearl is one of the best high definition makeup brands out there. I have tried so many brands from the most expensive to least ones and Eve Pearl always remains in my top 5!  Being a makeup artist I always look for a product, which is multi tasking and delivers the best. By multi tasking I meant it has to be perfect for all skin types, HD and camera friendly, long lasting and coverage! Need I say more! 

I was introduced to this brand years ago, and I am still hooked on it. And I keep repurchasing her products for my kit; my kit can never be able to function without her products.I was introduced to this brand years ago, and I am still hooked on it. And I keep repurchasing her products for my kit; my kit can never be able to function without her products.

You have to try it to believe it. And once you do, trust me you will never leave. Today I will be reviewing her DUAL HD FOUNDATION, which was long due! I can't talk enough about this foundation! Gosh the coverage the opacity the dewiness and boy it looks so amazing on camera!!! I will soon be doing a separate YouTube video just to show how good this product is and will also insert pictures with this post, because "seeing is believing" and I want to show the entire world how amazing this product is!  

All her makeup has skincare benefits too! She has this amazing ingredient that is called  Cosmo nutrient, which is so good for any skin specially the aging skin. It doesn't matter who you are regular makeup wearer or a newbie her products fits ever one well. It's like a dream to blend this foundation. I am not even kidding, you don't have to be a makeup artist and still your makeup will look flawless with this foundation. You can use anything, brushes fingers sponges any tool will work great with her products. But preferably using a sponge is a good way to achieve flawless makeup look.           


For my international readers, GOOD NEWS you can purchase her products from any where in the world and whats more? FREE SHIPPING!! yes! they offer free world wide shipping! isn't this amazing? oH Goodness! you will fall in love with each of her products. So don't hesitate to try, you got nothing to loose! only to gain a flawless complexion :) 

I hope my review was helpful to you, if you have tried her products in the past I would love to hear your views on that, please share your experience with her products! Thanks


Until you read again

Bare Escentuals Beauty Surprise Collection 2014 Review


I was very excited when I placed my order for this, and before I could tell my other friends about it, it was sold out!  Well, it was too good to be true.

BARE MINERALS BEAUTY SURPRISE BUNDLE WITH 12 THINGS.



Upon waiting anxiously to get the package in my hands, I was very much disappointed after receiving it. Sorry Bare Minerals L as much I love your original foundation this package broke all my hopes. I was expecting so much more and it was very disappointing to see BARE MINERALS sending out products, which are discontinued as a surprise beauty bundle. We the lovers of Bare Minerals deserve so much better than that.

It cost me 45, well 48 with tax. And they claimed it to be valued at 187?? I will be posting pictures in this post and you can judge your self what I am trying to say. Nothing was worth in the package expect 4 things! They said it was a surprise of 12 beauty essentials and all they included were eye products except for 2 or 3 face products, which were 2 brushes and a mineral veil. I was trying to list prices in this blog to see if it was really worth 187? It was not even worth 80dollars!  
The only huge item in this entire pack was a “brush cleanser” how is that a beauty essential? Any one can wash their brushes with baby shampoo and it will be just as good as this shampoo they sent. I was hoping to see some new products they introduced this year, like their “serum foundation” But they didn’t even include sample of it.

I don’t know how many of you have tried this in the past; its their second time doing this promotion. They did the same last year and I heard it was very good. But no more for me! I am done with Bare Essential surprises! All I want to say is, if you claim something to be worth 187 dollars? The least you can do is add something from your latest collection to it. They could have easily added their serum foundation and I would have gladly kept the entire surprise. But I am sorry to say its going back. Because nothing in this Beauty Bundel except for brushes and mineral veil is valuable to me. 
Being a Pro Mua even if I have tons of makeup I still keep buying it because I love to mix and match things and of course I see value of every thing from 'cost to quality' it should have both. If you are new to makeup and building up your collection this set may be valuable to you. But as they claimed it is definitely not worth 187? Dear BARE MINERALS please have better things next time for the sake of saving all your fan love. You already lost one beauty surprise fan.

KAT VON D TATTOO LINER VERSUS MAYBELLINE MASTER PRECISE INK PEN



Recently I did a comparison between Maybelline Master Precise Ink Pen Liner and Kat Von D Tattoo liner. I was about to give up on Kat Von D only because it was almost 3 times pricier than Maybelline Master Precise, and they are 90 percent similar and comparable. Both are intense black and nicely pigmented, the Kat liner is tad darker than Maybelline Master Precise.

 What made me keep the kat liner? I am a regular makeup wearer even if I don’t do full face I would at least do my liner and mascara. And boy the kat liner won the race there. It didn’t smudge even after I took shower I had to take it off with an eye makeup remover. The second best thing is it instantly dries so for me it’s a plus point because I can use it on clients and layer it without waiting the first layer to dry. Third and the best thing about this liner is “it never fades!” yes!! It stays put through out the day. I had it on one morning went to 2 events and the color intensity was like I just put it On! It looked fresh towards end of the day. So over all I was sold!

Left Eye::: Kat Von D Tattoo Liner,  Right Eye:::Maybelline Master Precise Ink Liner (I am wearing tarte bronzer as eye shadow) 

I have mountains of makeup, obviously because I am a Pro MUA. But if you were looking to start with pen liners Either Maybelline or Katvondi would be perfect. You pay what you get. I still love my Maybelline Master piece. But being a professional I would reach for Kat liner. Only because it last LONGER and color payoff.  But you can still choose Maybelline Master Precise as I said they both are similar with just difference of 10 percent :) I hope you enjoyed reading my post! as much I enjoyed putting it together for you :)

I hope you all have wonderful and Happy Holidays!

Untill you read again

Take Care and Good Luck!

MAC ZUCA BAG

My recent purchase was my MAC ZUCA bag
which I bought from the pro store in NY. I was
contemplating a lot before I made this purchase.  Because of its steep price tag.



Let me tell you it's worth every penny and a long term investment! Seriously I packed like almost half of my makeup and I still had room for more! Can you belief that? Yes! It is that spacious. Other best part is how it packs. Instead of just throwing everything in there, they have clear pouches which comes with the bag and you can purchase more if you want, which in my case I am content with pouches it came with. You can separate your makeup, for instance eyes,face,lips and etc. It has so many pockets and mesh dividers you can store away in every corner of this bag!

I was confused between stillazi and zuca and decided to go with mac zuca. Lot of people think Mac zuca is little pricy than the regular zuca. But to be honest upon my
calculation the difference is of only 15 to 20 dollars more.
Yes! It's only that more expensive. How? If you get a regular zuca with 4 clear pouches and
seat cover it is 295 to 285 and with out a seat cover its
around 230 to 240 I believe. Some people might think it's
not necessary to have a seat cover, but I think it's as
much important because if you store your essentials in
side mesh pockets and put a seat cover on it, it guards
your stuff. Some zuca have zipper instead of mesh
hence need of seat cover might not be necessary,but they
are also in the same price range which is 290ish.
So all in all I think yes
you are paying a little more for brand 'MAC' but it's not
like a huge difference! Only about 20 to 15 dollars which
according to me is worth to pay for the sake of MAC :)

Skin care Recipes from your kitchen!





I am crazy about natural skin care and organic stuff. I remember was reading this book on herbs and Ayurveda and came a cross a sentence which said

“don not put anything on your skin which you cannot eat!” 

hmmm, well we all know it’s not possible in today’s world with so many things we use on daily basis.

We can’t put stop to one or the other, from toothpaste to shampoos to soaps, everything has paraben and some sort of chemicals in them. Now a day’s lots of companies are coming out with paraben free skincare haircare and other things, which makes me really happy!

We don’t have to fully follow those ancient rules! The least we can do is switch to the products, which has less chemicals and parabens widely available now. That said, my todays post reflects beauty and skincare tips driven from all natural ingredients if you are a Asian some of them will be rightly available within your kitchen pantry.  So lets begin J

 NEED AN INSTANT BRIGHTNING FACIAL?Apply a paste of yogurt and turmeric with some drops of lemon in it. Keep it for 20 to 30 minutes and wash off! There you go, you are all bright again! 



ARE YOUR LIPS FLAKY DRY AND PIGMENTED? Grind 3 to 4 almonds and mix with butter as much to make a paste and rub it on lips leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes and gently remove with a gritty side of wash cloth in a circular motion. This will exfoliate the dead layer on your lips, which, was causing flakiness, and almonds will add brightening effect.

 



DIDN’T GET ENOUGH SLEEP? TIRED WITH UNDER EYE BAGS?You thought I would tell you the tea bag remedy? Well yeah it does work! But I have come across this one am sure you haven’t heard of ;)
When you go to bed dab a little unrefined (organic) Almond oil and close your eyes gently massage in circular way as though you are washing your eyes or taking of your makeup, you don’t have to do this for 10 minutes! It takes only 2 minutes and yes; it’s a great makeup remover too!





 TIRED OF ACNE AND ACNE MARKS?Cut the tomato in half and rub on your face until you are left with skin or at least less than what you started off with. Do this consecutively for 5 to 10 days. You will not only get rid of acne but acne marks too! Tomatoes have natural vitamin c, also known as ascorbic acid, which is really beneficial in treating acne and brightening skin texture. It also has lycopene, which is said to work wonders for acne prone skin. Really try it!


I hope you enjoyed my natural skincare tips! will be sharing more with you!  

Until you read again,

Take Care and GoodLuck!
