Essence Eyebrow Gel Colour & shape in 01 - Review and Swatches

Now a days, talk of the town is "Brow Game".  Everybody is talking about what type of brow you are going to keep now a days? Hey what products you are using at your brow to make it perfect....  :)




To be honestly i am not a brow person, why??? i have very light brows, so whenever i do makeovers, i just use a brow brush with little light brow powder over it to make it prominent as i am scared if i applied any kind of proper eyebrow product over them, it gives me a "Jinny" looks.

Recently i get chance to try "Essence Eyebrow Gel Colour & Shape,  here is my views about this new beauty baby:


Packaging:

It comes in a round strong glass pot, easy to keep and can carry in bag. They also mentioned making, color code its quantity and expiry date on it

Texture:
They claim that its Eyebrow Gel, though its in a creamy thick form, which is quite dry too.  Basically, the formula is the same just like kohal / Eyebrow pencil texture which Essence pour into a glass pot. The 01 Brown is the only color available in the market and it has Ashy medium tone.



My Experience:
I personally love this product, just because of its formula. This creamy turned into powder form is bit dry, but totally allow you to use it in a nicer and easy way. I use this product with their angle gel liner brush.  You can draw/outline your brows with it easily.  Fill it and manage it with eyebrow brush.

I am also using this product over my upper and lower lash line just to give a natural & nicer look in day time.

This product is best for those who has light or medium tone eyebrows, it doesn't work great with Dark / Heavy brows persons.

Excellent for beginners,or people who are not into brow game. :)



Product is easily available on all leading stores





Product sent for test & reviews purpose.  I write this review by myself for public awareness, i applied products, used them and done a complete market research by myself. Nobody pay me any single penny for this, so my point of views are honest and unbiased.


 I am open for discussion and would love to talk more about any single point. So please share your views/points, i would love to answer :)

W7 - The Honey Queen - Honeycomb Blusher - Review & Swatches




I am a big fan of blusher and highlighter. So if somebody say highlighter i start craving for that. Recently, i got chance to try W7 The Honey Queen Honeycomb Blusher.

Packaging:  Oh i totally loving the packaging, its a cardboard square deep box printing the brand and logos in bright shimmery multi colors.  It has long square flat brush. 






My experiences:
When i open the box, i feel meow i means, the surface of the blusher has some multi colors honey comb boxes.  The texture of these boxes are blend of shimmery and matte.  I start testing each single box and got confused that how does it works on or over my cheeks.  Anyways, i take a log breath and took my blusher brush and start applying over my cheeks.  Ahan...... what a great experience.... 

Well they mentioned over their website that its a bronze, but they put a Blusher logo over their box but but but but... when i start using it i have realized that this is a "Perfect Highlighter" .  A Bitter truth... Yes. its an amazing highlighter. :)







Swatches in Light and without light (wearing foundation underneath)



As you know i have a habit of using one product on different medians, so my final verdict about this product is:

  • It is perfect peachy color with golden undertone.
  • If you have a fair tone and dont need much, it works best as blusher cum Illuminator (on bare face)
  • You can use this blusher as a highlighter over your cheek bones,
  • As a highlighter on your brow bone.
  • Best for Strobing.
  • Little fall out 
  • Packaging is strong and sturdy 
  • Brush is best for highlight and blushing
  • Blusher texture is silky and smooth you can apply it easily.
  • Available on their face book page W7 Cosmetics Pakistan and they deliver nationwide.

So far i aint found any flaw in this product except you can't keep this beauty in your bag.

Happy Mothers Day Celebration with The Body Shop Lahore

Recently, The Body Shop Pakistan, has celebrated Mother's day special activity in Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore. The craziest part of this celebration was that they issued a gift voucher of Rs. 10,000/- to each blogger, to do some shopping for their Mom. Oh my Gosh..... what a lovely and luxury offer man.....When Mr. Najaf from "M/s. Constantine PR" company, called me and shared about this activity, i just got shocked and cried. ( I lost my mom six years back)


Anyways, it was a tough task for me to do shopping for Mom. I live in Lahore and they selected Xinua Mall Branch for this activity. When i enter into the shop i noticed that most of the bloggers were doing shopping with their moms.... what a heart broken moment..... and suddenly Hira/Maria's mom pointed me out... hey why you are alone.... Where is your mom.... i cant stop my feelings and start crying .... she suddenly hug me.   .....BREAK...

When you enter, you Heavenly smells fresh rose fragrances.... Ahhhh amazing


Let me move further....

Well, The body shop was crowded due to bloggers and their moms.... All were excited and conscious what to buy for their mom and obviously for themselves as well.... lolzz all were looking something yummy and lovely products. Let me tell you one thing, once you entered into the body shop outlet, you wont be able to select only one product, you start yelling and putting stuff one by one into the shopping baskets.  ..... I bet you.....

As i feel that i have already done doctorate in the body shop, so i start helping out all bloggers to select the products according to their needs, skin type & tone. :D  yaaaa yupeeeee

I have decided to celebrate this mothers day with my all sisters, so all sisters were in my mind, and i want to pick one product for each.   Its my habit to get/buy products according to their choices.

Here i have picked some stuff for my lovely sisters.  Details reviews of each product will be share soon.

Yes, i picked smartly and wisely ;)

Over the past 40+ years, Second Cup has expanded globally to over 400 cafes in 30 regions. Second Cup cafés offer a variety of innovative and exclusive blends, espresso-based beverages and iced drinks, signature foods, indulgent treats and premium beverages in a warm and comfortable setting. Second Cup was launched in Pakistan in 2013 opening its stores in Islamabad, Lahore and Sialkot. 




Recently, Second Cup Coffee Company celebrated a successful launch of their new branch in Lahore. The café has a warm ambience with indoor and outdoor seating of up to 60 people.



Speaking at the launch, Owner of Second Cup Gulberg, Ahsan Raza, said: “I am thrilled with the response we have received from the media and public. The coffee chain business is expanding by the day in Pakistan and the growing presence is evident. There has been an evolution in the local demand with a shift from tea drinkers to coffee, and we are here to cater to that. Gulberg is the commercial centre of Lahore, hence the choice to open the new Second Cup branch here.”

Head of Trade of the High Commission of Canada to Pakistan, Allison Stewart, was also in attendance to perform the official ribbon cutting marking the opening of the Second Cup Gulberg branch.
