hello girls:)!!!
this is my first eyeshadow quad review for my blog. im a huge fan of them, its probably my second most favourite thing in make up after blush!
now there are not a large number of Loreal things that i own, just about 3-4 for now i think. i do have a single eyeshadow from them and am pretty impressed by how its pigmentation is in comparison with high-end brands.
Loreal Open Eyes Pro eyeshadow quad is professional eye make up revealed step by step. the new creamy formula is an extra smooth and adhering  texture with an expert selection of harmonious colors: your eyes are  sculpted and instantly wide open!

to start of with i want to apologize for the picture quality, i couldn't find my camera and these where taken on my phone.
the product comes in a medium sized, black plastic casing.  the small size enables u to slip it in ur bag and hence its very travel friendly. i have it in the shade 03 BEIGE HARMONY. i like eyeshadow quads in comparison with eyeshadow duos and trios since quads are more versatile.

the colours in this particular quad are very subtle, neutral and everyday type. they are mostly shimmery to satin finish eyeshadows but the golden shadow right on top is glittery and a bit flaky.

  •  i really like that these can be used wet as well. they give a smooth finish. they are not powdery. 
  • they have a good staying power, they stay on for about 4 hours without a primer and much longer with one on.
  • i did try these in a look with the instructions given behind the palette, it looks lovely!!
  • they are easy to blend
  • this particular quad is great for neutral lovers and office goers.
  • its my go to palette for a red hot lip! u can go subtle or smokey with this if u add a touch of well blended black liner.
  • its available in 7 more shades according to their website, i hope all of them are available at the store.

yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and im so happy i finally found a MAC dupe all by myself:P!!!
its a great dupe for MAC's GRAIN eyeshadow.. the MAC on is a bit more peachy but they are really really close.

the swathces!!!
(i think i swatched the last color with my lil' pinkie, thats why is not aligned with the other colors)

i'd say definitely invest in one of these palettes, they are great value for money. apart of me says 700INR is a bit much but i think for the quality its worth it!
u might want to pick these online for a better price:)

oh and a bit of randomness!!!!
im so happy i picked my first sling bag, i think they are such few options around where i live but im still hunting for more:) what do u guys think of this bright coral one?

and i love this temporary beetle tattoo my little cousin sister gave me..

Hello chicas:)!
so i finally pulled my cousin in so i could do a eye make up look on her and after much pressing she agreed:)! i like doing make on other people coz their eye shapes and sizes are different and to adapt colors and storkes to it is interesting as well as challenging!
my cousin here has smaller and more inset eyes, also her eye opens out completely which requires her to get the eye shadow a bit higher than usual! i drew the idea from arabic make up, not entirely but quite a bit and tried to incorporate it with a bit of softness. i hope it comes across in the pictures:)
id wear this for a night out or a party!

i used beauty uk palette to create this look! i hope you guys liked it:)

Estee Lauder Automatic Eye Pencil Duo- Review

Hello Beauties:)!!!
feels like iv been gone forever! my eyes havent been doing too well, they dry up like crazy so iv not been using the laptop.. anyway:)! im back with a bang and will stick around, pinkie promise:D
today's review is for a product i recently discovered, recently is 2 months ago by the way! my friend introduced me to this. iv never used anything from Estee lauder so this brand is new for me though iv heard great stuff about their foundations. i was all drool when i reached their store:P! there is so much i want to try from them!

versatile,double-ended eyelining tool with twist up color on one side, a smudger on the other.
creamy formula creates a soft blendable line, everytime. color tip is always perfectly shaped, never needs sharpening.

  • Dermatologist-tested
  • Ophthalmologist-tested
  • Suitable for contact lens users

Iv never been a fan of retractable pencils due to my bad experiences with maybelline colossal kajal and chambor eyeliner pencil, but i have no regrets with this. i twisted it in and out a couple times to check and its working just fine. I have this pencil in JET BLACK. i love the packaging, its super gorgeous, so sleek and classy, its easy to apply, travel friendly and light weight. i like the fact that the smudger is soft and doesnt hurt my eyelid when i attempt to use it. i have very sensitive eyes, this doesnt make them water or irritate them. but yes my favorite part would be the refill it comes with!!!!! its so cool, u can have one pen and different colored refills, that way u have a variety of colors to chose from. i bought it mainly for the purpose of lining my eyes.

                                                                      single swatch

  • Smooth and creamy, glides on easily.
  • u dont have to worry about sharpening it.
  • comes with a refill.
  • comes with a smudger.
  • pigmentation is good.
  • availability of nice colors.
  • stays on the upper lid for a decent amount of time
  • it stays for barely half an hour on the lower lashline before it begins to disappear. so u need to set it with a powder eye shadow. 
  • the pigmentation could be better.
  • not water resistant which is a sign of a so-so eyeliner/eyepencil.
  • staying power is not great either.
  • u may need to reapply through the day
i say u give this product a miss, i would not call it pricey if it stayed on but what is  an eye pencil if it doesnt manage to stay put throughout the day? but if u like a natural looking eyeliner and soft looks, u can give this a try.. as for me, il use it for my upper lid and set it with shadow so i dont have to re apply thorugh the day
