Ultimate Make-up Kit.....A review

                              This is Victoria's Secret Ultimate Make-up Kit.

On the box it's written "50 Must-haves for eyes, lips and face". So is it true??? Let's take a look at whats inside.

It contains 30 eyeshadows, 5 lipsticks, 5 lipglosses, 4 blushes, a bronzer, transulenct powder, luminous powder, a lip liner pencil, an eye pencil and a mascara. It contains brushes and applicators which most kits do.

My verdict!!!
The packaging is sleek black, compact enough to fit inside your purse. love it!!!
The eyeshadows are silky HONESTLY....The pigmentation is superb....I've seen kits from other brands but VS's kits are always amazing!!!
Gorgeous lipsticks and lipglosses..... highly pigmented and not sticky.
The blushes are gorgeous and there is only one matte and others have a subtle shimmer to it not chunky glitter.
The luminous powder is amazing for highlighting as it has fine shimmers in it.
The eye pencil is well pigmented..I wish it was in a large size. It goes on smooth.
The lip pencil is also good..Not a huge fan of red lip goes on smoothly.
I hate the applicators....The sponge tips don't pack colour on the lids but the lip brushes are handy.
The Mascara is ok....neither lengthens nor volumises the lashes.

Swatches of some eyeshadows...The flash is washing off the pigmentation.

The claiming of being must-haves is true! The eyeshadows, lipsticks, lipglosses, blushes and bronzer are amazing. A must-have INDEED!!!

I will recommend you get this kit for yourself or for your girlfriends. Whomsoever you wish to give. Check out for the pricing and other information.

Take great care.

Current Product...

Well this post is on my current product meaning what i'm currently using. That is Maybelline Dream matte mousse.

I'm sure you might have read tonns of posts or seen videos out there. I'm just telling you about my experience with it. This is my first foundation i ever bought. When i saw the advertisement on TV, I was like " Man!!! I wanna get that!". Back then i didn't know it was all editing and stuff. So I saved some money and then rushed to a supermarket ( FYI Naheed supermaket)

Before Blending

After Blending. Excuse the cast as my hand was dry.But i'm sure you get the idea.

So here are my thoughts on it!!
Pros: Smooth, blendable, mediun to full coverage, affordable. Can be used as a concealer.

I spray my synthetic foundation brush with rose water....Yess Rose water!!! And it glides on like cream on bread. haha

Cons: It turned crumbly =(

 Mine was like that when i bought it but i've seen others having it just like a mousse. Oh well i guess better luck next time.

Price Tag: Rs. 750( i guess)

So what's your current foundation?? Do let me know in the comment section below.

Take great care.

Oh so Shimmerrr....

 This is a review of my favourite product....These are The Body Shop's Shimmer Cubes!

Well they are amazingly pigmented and silky on touch. The size of the cubes is like woah and they will last you forever. Just a swipe gives alot of product so be aware of this. As everyone says "A little goes a long way" so Yeah this statement is true for this product.

I do not know if they are available in these shades. The colours are Green, Red, Brown and orange-y with INTENSE gold shimmer. I don't know the price as they were a gift.

Here are swatches on my fingers. Have a look at the AMAZING pigmentation!!!

They can be used as shadows, the golden one as a highlight, as eyeliners or even on a matte lipstick. Sky is the limit!!!

Check out The Body Shop website or a store near you. If you are the kind of person who is like " Woah!!! That's way too shimmer" then this might not be the product for you.

So what do you think?? Do you have these or some other shimmery shadows?? Do let me know in the comment section below.

Take great care.
