I am a true makeup junkie so much so that if I want a particular shade of red lipstick. I will end up buying 10 different reds till the time I finally find my Holy Grail red lipstick. Same goes to makeup brushes, I have brushes in sets and some singles from Coastal Scents, Real techniques, Faces, Wet n Wild etc. They are nice and good to work with when I am doing my makeup at home. But the moment I pack my bag for travelling, I hate carrying 10 different brush for contouring, highlighting and setting my loose powder. I was waiting for a multipurpose brush that would actually save my time, money and luggage space and does the job for me. When Anamika launched her Cheek, Contour & Powder Brush my hands were itching to get it and I couldn’t resist adding this to my cart.
This Cheek ,contour & Powder brush has been launched by popular blogger Anamika from WISESHE. Anamika always felt the dearth of good quality brushes at affordable price in India. This is her first brush which is designed in a way that it fulfils number of requirements of the pretty girls /ladies without breaking the bank.
Price- Rs. 700 available on amazon.in at a discounted price of Rs. 600 here
Packaging- The brush comes in a chic, slender box which itself is very sturdy and protects the brush from any outside damages and dust. The velvet cushion which is inside the box, besides looking sophisticated and sexy, provides more protection to the brush and makes sure that the bristles don’t take any hit even while travelling.
My Experience with Wiseshe Cheek, Contour & Powder Brush-
As soon as I received this brush the first thing I noticed is the unique packaging. I have never seen a brush before like that. It was sleek, slender and so light-weight. It came in a sleek black box with the velvet cushion inside. The next thing that attracted me the most is that it was super soft. It is as soft as a baby’s bum inspite of being made of synthetic hair. I loved how it felt on my face. I simply couldn’t stop running it across my skin. I tried contouring, applying blush, highlighting and setting loose powder with this brush. It makes the job so much easier. Not kidding! If I was to rate this product it would be 11/10 because I am still in shock that I finally found that multi purpose brush that I was looking for. This brush is all you need while travelling. It picks up the right amount of product and blends like a dream. It doesn’t feel pokey or scratchy. I washed it as soon as I got it and it dried within 3hrs which is amazing. Usually, my brushes take one day to dry. I cannot stop using this brush from the time I got it in my hands. This is such a great brush with an affordable price tag. I am really looking forward to more makeup brushes from Wiseshe. You have really raised the bar for the Indian market. Infact, I can point out at brands and tell them if you want to make good quality brushes please learn from Wiseshe by ANAMIKA.
Soft as a baby’s bum
Works as a multipurpose brush
Easy to wash
Dries very fast
Branding done right
None at all!
Recommendation- I highly recommend to every girl who loves multipurpose brush. This is such a great brush and an absolute must have. It deserves to be in your vanity for the softness, packaging and for its multi tasking abilities. Also, It saves a lot of time, effort and money for someone who doesn’t like buying too many brushes.
PR- Product sent by the brand for consideration but my review remains honest and unbiased as always.
Here is a new skincare brand on my blog. I know I have been doing a lot of makeup reviews. So I shifted my focus towards skincare lately. With the changing weather, my skin has become very dry and I am buying less makeup and more skincare. I was glad to receive these skincare goodies from Inatur Herbals. What I really love about Inatur was that the brand carefully examined my skin type and sent me products accordingly. Inatur Herbals are ayurvedic and aromatherapy products which is again a big plus for me. The brand promises their product to be 100% safe and natural to use. So let’s know my side of the story.
1. Inatur Herbals Anti Ageing Night Cream-
Anti-Ageing Therapy is an innovative therapy from the house of Inatur that works day and night to combat all signs of ageing and make your skin look younger. It contains 2 creams- one being the anti-ageing night cream that is especially developed for mature, tired and aged skin. Regular application of this products helps to improve skin tone by reducing discoloration and brown spots. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and brings firmness, hydration and nourishment to the skin.
Price- Rs. 410 for 50gms
My Experience with Inatur Herbals Anti Ageing Night Cream-
I have never used an anti ageing product earlier and this is my first anti ageing night cream. My skin is turning very dry in winters otherwise I don’t really have mature skin or any fine lines. Inspite of it my skin looks very firm, radiant and healthy after the use of this night cream. The formula is mattifying and absorbs easily. Unlike many of the night creams in the market which turns oily. I am very happy that the product is non comedogenic and didn’t break me out. It really suits my skin and helped in reducing dark spots. The fragrance of all Inatur products seems to be dipped in ‘Attar’ and smell oh so divine. I can buy the product only for the fragrance. There was no fairness whatsoever but it never claimed to make it fair. It helped in removing my tan and made it even toned. I can’t comment on the fine lines bit as I have none of that. Maybe someone with a mature skin can share their experience. Overall, I am pretty satisfied with this product as a night cream. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to try an effective anti-ageing product. This one definitely deserves thumbs up.
2. Inatur Herbals Honey Sheet Masks-
Sheet masks are face-shaped sheet fabrics soaked in active packed solution called serum.
Sheet mask is made of plant derived natural fiber and is to be used once only. It is individually packaged, making them fast, convenient, and easy to use.
Sheet mask is a medium where by the actives can get absorbed into the skin without clogging pores. These actives then penetrate through the epidermis of skin whereby bringing desired benefits . Honey Oat sheet mask reduces dryness, rashes, skin peeling and flakiness. It has anti-inflammatory properties and gives instant relief from sunburn.
It is enriched with Honey extracts, Oat powder and Glycerin that restores the skin’s barrier system and can be used by sensitive skin also. 100% Natural, Chemical-Free, Non-Comedogenic
Price- Rs.100 for 38gms
My Experience withthe Honey Sheet Masks-
The honey sheet mask does exactly what it claims to be. It smells amazing and quickly after 20mins of removing the mask I experienced clean, glowing and beautiful skin. This sheet masks is great for normal to dry skin. My face was feeling too dry and stretchy during winters and this came to my rescue. There was so much of serum left in the pack even after putting that sheet masks. I had to literally pour it on my face. I am really satisfied with this sheet masks and will try another variant soon from the brand. This masks is meant for one time use. You can also carry it while travelling for a quick self pampering.
3. Inatur Herbals Argan Lip balm-
Get naturally soft and plump lips with deep moisturizing properties of Argan oil, Candelilla wax, Shea butter, Cocoa butter, Almond oil, Rose oil, Geranium oil and Patchouly oil contained in the INATUR Argan lip balm.
Free from parabens and silicones, it is 100% safe to use.
Price- Rs.220 for 10gms
My Experience with the Argan Lip balm-
I apply this lipbalm every night and wake up with happy, soft lips. It keeps my lips well hydrated and nourished. They are moisturised for a longer period of time. So there is no need of reapplication in every few hours. My lips look healthy and plump after the regular use. I completely enjoy the fragrance of this lipbalm. It comes with a spatula so that its easy to remove the product out of the tub. Usually, I prefer lipbalms in the twist form so applying lipbalm through a spatula sounds like a tedious job to do. Although I love this lip balm, I think it’s a bit pricier. Overall, if you love argan oil products, do give this lipbalm a try. These are completely natural and free from parabens and silicones.
PS- Product sent by brand for consideration, reviews remain honest.
I am back with another brand new company. Recently, I received a box full of products from this brand called “Europegirl Cosmetics”. This brand is actually based in India but manufactures the products from China, UK and other foreign countries. I got 4 eyeliners, illuminators and eye shadow pigments in the package. I am going to review one by one for you. So today’s topic of discussion would be the liquid eyeliners from Europe girl. Since this is the “shaadi” season, many of you like to wear glitter or shimmer eyeliners. Especially,the ones who are weak in makeup and like to glam up a bit occasionally. Here is a good news for you, Europe girl paris do have a gold glitter eyeliner and a silver eyeliner to serve the purpose. Now lets find out if its worth a buy?
Price- Rs. 300 for 5ml. You can buy it from Amazon or from their Instagram page @europegirl.cosmetics.
Packaging- They have done a good job with the packaging. Very similar to Mac cosmetics, the tube is transparent so that you can see through the color. Also the wand is of good quality which makes it easier to create your eyeliner on fleek. However, there is no product description. I feel product description gives an identity to the brand and it’s an absolute must to have one.
Matte Black Eyeliner 01 – This is one of the blackest black eyeliner that I’ve used till date. It dries up really fast and doesn’t smudge once its all dried up. Creating wing eyeliner is so easy peasy with this eyeliner.
Glitter 02- This is lovely gold glitter eyeliner. It is perfect for the festive season and very easy to apply. It doesn’t create any mess once it is dried. However, it takes a bit longer than the black eyeliner to settle. Neverthless, it is one of the best affordable gold glitter eyeliner in the market.
Silver 06- This is pure silver lining on your eyes. Not many brands have silver eyeliner. I am really impressed that this brand does have silver eyeliner.
Aqua Blue 05- This shade is more like a turquoise blue with a satiny finish. It looks extremely pretty on the eyes and can be easily layered twice.
There are more shades in this range now. Do check out their Instagram handle @europegirl.cosmetics for the new launches.
My Experience with Europe girl Paris Slick Liquid Eyeliners-
Eyeliner is a must in every girl’s vanity. It is like a basic necessity for us girls and I have so many of you asking me the same question time and again. “Suggest me a good black eyeliner?”. So this matte black eyeliner is your answer. It is affordable yet perfect jet black, matte eyeliner. It is very easy to work with these eyeliners as the wand is very handy. Creating wing eyeliner is a cakewalk. And its just not the case with the black but also with the rest of the shades. Both the silver and glitter eyeliners are good quality and very well pigmented. The glitter doesn’t create a mess on your face. These are waterproof and smudge proof, so it doesn’t budge once it is dried. You need an oil based makeup remover to get rid of it. Also I don’t think you can use it on your waterline, it is only made for the lids. Overall, I am truly happy with the eyeliners and give it a big thumb up. There is nothing to complain about it except I feel they should be easily available in the market. They are planning to open a retail store very soon in April. Till then they are available on Amazon and Instagram.
Blackest black eyeliner
Very good quality
Waterproof and smudge proof
Has a variety of shades
No product Description
Should be easily available
Recommendation- I highly recommend this to you if you are looking out for good quality, affordable eyeliners. The glitter eyeliner is a must have for the festive season.
PR- Product sent by the brand for consideration but the review remainds honest and unbiased.
It’s my first post in this brand New year. First of all, I want to wish everyone a very Happy New year. May the New Year bring you the plot twist that you have been waiting for. So much have changed over the years including my skincare, haircare and makeup routine. I no longer stick to a single product and always keep on experimenting with new products. Well, that’s a life of a beauty blogger. Recently, I was sent some products from Olivia Cosmetics. I remember when I was in college my first foundation stick came from the house of Olivia. For all those who are not familiar with the brand, it’s an affordable Indian herbal beauty brand that has some amazing skincare and makeup range at pocket friendly price. I received 4 products out of which two are my cult favourites and old best friend and the rest of the two are new found love. So let’s find out what I feel about the products.
1. Olivia Golden Glow Facewash for Radiant Skin-
This facewash is great for someone who is looking forward for a radiant glowing skin during festive season. It is new from their collection and it has properties of Gold, Chandan and Turmeric which provides deep cleansing and clears skin pores. This facewash is meant for all skintype and lathers really well. It gives a slight tingling sensation while massaging. There is nothing that I don’t like about this product. It is actually very effective in removing dullness and making it soft smooth and healthy.
Price- Rs. 60 for 60ml.
2. Olivia Aloe vera Cleansing milk-
This cleansing milk has been there in the market for a long time. This was my go to product for face cleansing. It not only removes all traces of face makeup but also make your skin glowy and healthy after the wash. I will not recommend you to remove your eyemakeup using this as it may irritate your eyes. You may want to use an oil based makeup remover for eyemakeup. However, it’s best for removing dirt and other impurities from your skin. I absolutely love the fragrance of this product. There is so much quantity for the price. One bottle will easily last 1 month. This is an absolute must have for deep cleansing.
Price- Rs. 60 for 100ml.
3. Olivia Powder Compact Natural Beige 02-
Olivia cosmetics make some of the best base makeup products. Trust me with this, I grew using Olivia products. Those were the days when we were completely dependent on pocket money to survive our days. My love for makeup started in my early days of college; I was hooked on the panstick and powder compact for regular use. I wonder why I stopped using this powder compact. It gives the right amount of coverage inspite of being just a pressed powder. You can simply apply a moisturiser and dab this pressed powder if you are looking for light to medium coverage. It didn’t ever break me out. This compact powder gives matte coverage which is such a plus for oily skin beauties. I can easily compare it with Loreal Magique pressed powder which is my HG powder compact. Dry skin beauties may want to moisturise your skin very well before using this compact powder.
Price- Rs. 100 for 15gms
4. Olivia Instant Waterproof Makeup Stick with SPF 12-
This makeup stick is a boon for someone who is looking for a full coverage foundation. If you ask me KRYOLAN OR OLIVIA Makeup stick? I will gladly choose Olivia. Its because this makeup stick doesn’t feel heavy on application and made up like Kryolan pan stick. With Kryolan you can actually see that you have used a heavy coverage foundation but this looks extremely natural. It has inbuilt moisturisers which makes your skin look healthy. Since it has medium to heavy coverage it perfectly conceals under eye circles and imperfections of your skin. It is truly waterproof and sweatproof. This was my cult favourite during my college days. If you are looking for a budget friendly full coverage foundation cum concealer, this should be your best bet. This didn’t break me out and it also provides UV protection. However, I suggest doing a patch test as one of my friend claimed that it did break her out. It differs as per your skintype.
Price- Rs. 120 for 15gms.
Overall, I absolutely loved all the four products, you need to try it to know how good these products are even though its pocket friendly. The products are easily available on stores and online. Have you tried any of the Olivia products? What’s your take on them?
No matter how expensive is your foundation; it will be a perfect marriage with your skin only by using the right tool. Recently, I was sent a cute box by my blogger friend Anamika, I am sure most of you already know her but I would still like to introduce her. She is someone who I started my blogging career with; I wrote my first article on her blog back in 2012. Since then there was no looking back and I have been addicted to her blog http://www.wiseshe.com. I completely trust her reviews and go by her advice. I was very excited to try these Oval brushes created by her under her blog name. These are yet to be launched in the market. She sent 2 of these brushes so that I can give my honest feedback before she launches them. After trying the brushes for around 2 weeks, I am finally ready to share my views about the Oval brushes by wiseshe.
Product Description- These are just named as Oval brushes by Wiseshe. The details will be shared once they are launched offline and online.
Packaging- I have received these brushes in a giftbox but mostly they will be packed differently after the launch. The oval brushes are made of synthetic hair but trust me it didn’t feel like one as the bristles were super soft. The handle is made of plastic which doesn’t look too sturdy to me. Also, there is no branding on the brushes yet. I firmly feel that the brushes need branding so that it’s easily differentiated with other commoners in the market.
My Experience with Oval brushes by Wiseshe-
I have never used an oval brush before and this is absolutely my first. I mostly apply my foundation with my fingers inspite of having several brushes from Real techniques and coastal scents. I hate the idea of putting so much of effort of blending with a brush. For the first time, I applied my foundation with these oval brushes and it worked like a dream on my skin. I didn’t have to put too much pressure on the brushes to blend my foundation. It was completely hassle free and easy to work with. The foundation blended well and there was no streakiness or uneveness. I have tried using this with liquid foundation, cream foundation and bb cream. It worked perfectly well with all type of foundation and concealers and doesn’t drink up the product. I have two brushes one looks like a multi-purpose brush that can be used as a foundation/powder/sculpt brush and the small one is a concealer brush. The multi-purpose brush is a medium sized brush due to which it easily covers the corners of the skin. It can also be used a contour brush. I did wash them twice till now and there is no fallout or smell that I have experienced. These oval brushes are very soft and easy to work with and I am impressed with the quality. I am super happy with the performance of this oval brushes and now can’t wait to check the price point and availability. Also, I would love to see the branding done on this brushes so that it stands out from the crowd.
Super Soft bristles
No streaky or patchiness
Blends like a dream
Works with liquid/cream/bbcream & powder based foundation.
Not harsh on the skin
Doesn’t soak in the product.
Goes in the corner of the face
Need branding on the packaging.
Recommendation- These oval brushes are great for makeup application. Make sure you grab it once they are launch, if you would like your makeup to look flawless and hassle free.
When I was a young girl, my mom used to take me and my sister for Dhanteras shopping. I used to completely dread the idea of going to the jewellery shop and buying those antic pieces in the name of gold jewellery. I had accepted the fact that I don’t like gold jewellery anymore. The old school indian jewellery designs spoilt it for me. They lack the youthfulness, charm and elegance in their collection and there is nothing new to look forward to. Recently, I got engaged and my fiancée gave me a beautiful diamond ring from the house of Caratlane. The staff at the Caratlane, Infinity Mall Malad has become like a family. They helped us to get the best discount on my ring and arranged my ring size in no time. I couldn’t stop staring at the make and shine of this beautiful rock on my finger.
So I took the opportunity to visit the Caratlane store at Infinity Mall, Malad again and introduce you to their latest collection.
Jaipur is the latest collection inspired by royalty of Jaipur and designed for everybody. The collection reminds you of the rich, glorious palaces of Jaipur. I am wearing this beautiful royal pink ring known as the Rambagh Dome ring and the Rambagh Pond Drop Earrings.
Next is my absolute favourite, this collection is known as Butterfly- The Spirit of You. This collection is for the free spirited woman who once was an amateur and turned her dreams into reality. It celebrates the woman who transformed into her authentic self. It is a true example of caterpillar turning into a butterfly.
Wore the Flare blue Butterfly ring from this range and Flitter Blue Butterfly Earcuffs. This collection will add style statement to your outfits.
Bombay Deco is a tribute to the Mumbai city. I am born and brought up in the city of dreams and cannot imagine my life elsewhere. The jewellery in this collection is designed in a manner that compliments the art deco buildings that adorn the skylines of Mumbai. Some of these building are the famous Liberty Theatre and the Eros Theatre in South Mumbai.
Lotus known as the Timeless Muse has some of the best lotus design in its collection that can be perfect for daily wear. This gorgeous Lotus swing necklace paired with Lotus swing earrings got my heart set on it. I am surely picking these two during my wedding shopping.
That was the four latest collections from Caratlane. Apart from this I also liked this charming Lupine Wood Grain pendant Bodhi leaf pendant necklace from the Aaranya collection. Isn’t it aesthetic?
If you are still thinking then let me enlighten you that CaratLane.com began in 2008 with the simple motto of democratising jewellery. And today, after 9 glorious years, it has come to being recognised as one of the top 20 e-commerce portals in India. Steadily growing from strength to strength since inception, It has also established 12 stores across the length and breadth of India and is now in partnership with the renowned jewellery brand – Tanishq.

A very Happy Dhanteras to one and all. With the festive season around the corner, it is absolutely essential to have bright, healthy and glowing skin. The daily rut of life tends to take away the charm of our face making it look tan, dull and lifeless. Women usually turn to fairness bleach to get that instant glow and brightness but bleach is harmful for your skin. Sensitive skin types should not even consider bleach as an option. Our facial skin is extremely delicate and it is 3 times thinner than our body. Keeping that in mind, here are the 5 best ways to get festive glowing skin that is absolutely safe and long-lasting.
1.Drink Lots of Water-
There is no substitute for water. You must have heard this million times by now that drinking water helps in flushing out the toxins helping you get clear, glowing skin. It is highly important to drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water a day to see the actual results. Water helps in clearing acne to a great extent. You can also drink fresh fruit juices incase you can’t drink a lot of water.
It’s not practical for everyone to go to gym everyday. But its absolutely possible to run for atleast 30mins everyday. Running helps you get the desired glow as you sweat out. Women who gym, do yoga or who is actively involved in any kind of sport have an infinite glow on their skin. Working out increase your blood flow, gives you an extra boost of energy and helps in getting rid of toxins from your body.
Whoever created the concept of Facial mist should be blessed by women. Facial mists are a multi-purpose product that helps you to get fresh and radiant looking skin ATM. You can simply carry them in your purse and spritz it on your face everytime you feel tired and dull. A bottle of rose water does wonders to your skin and can also be used as a toner. Facial mists are every bride’s favourite weapon to instant glowing skin.
Ice cubes are a boon when you haven’t slept enough and you have an important event coming up. Simply run a piece of icecube on your face prior to your makeup. It will increase blood circulation and give healthy, glowing skin. Ice cubes are also very good for minimizing large pores, soothing red and sunburnt skin.
5. VLCC Facial Kit –
When everything fails, facials come to my rescue. I am allergic to products that include bleach. VLCC, thankfully does not include bleach to their facial kit and is completely paraben free. VLCC has some of the best facial kits. Recently, I got a new variant from VLCC known as the VLCC Ayurveda Haldi & Tulsi Facial Kit. There were 5 deluxe size products inside the kit. It includes face wash, face scrub, face gel, face cream and a face pack. As soon as I used the face wash and scrub, my face instantly looked radiant. The smell of haldi and tulsi was therapeutic for my mind. By the end of facial, my face was glowing to glory and that was my best 200 rupees spent. My face looked bright, glowing and prepped up for the festive makeup. This facial kit is my shortcut to instant glow while other methods take time.
So these were our tricks and tips to instant festive glowing skin that works for every occasion. What do you do to get instant glowing skin?
Today’s review is on Philips HP8315/00 Hair Straightener. I know you would be thinking that why do I need to review a hair straightener as I already have straight hair? Well, this blog is definitely just not about me, it’s a guide to help you with your buying decision be it a hair straightener or a bob pin. I have been using the Philips HP8315/00 Hair straightener from past 2 years. I do have straight hair which is slightly wavy at the ends.

My Experience with Philips HP8315/00 Hair Straightener-
The first time I got this hair straightener I never really had high hopes because I have tried straightener’s earlier in my life. They all are sleek and it takes ages to straight my below the butt length hair and I literally had just given up. When I saw it has wider plates I thought of giving this a try. Trust me; I finished straightening my hair within 30mins which is a record in it ownself. It’s really not easy to straighten my medium thick long hair. The salon lady charges me extra looking at the length and thickness of my hair. On the other hand, my sister absolutely loves how easy this is to work with and within 20 mins she finished straightening her medium length hair. We both have been using this hair straightener for the last 2 years there is no damage or dryness found. Infact, our hair is smooth and shiny even though we are guilty of skipping the heat protector before straightening. I do advise you to use a heat protectant and then go for straightening. The ceramic plates are smooth on our hair, the straightener doesn’t tug or pull your hair. The best part is that it gets heated in 60secs unlike other cheap straighteners. I remember I had a brand called Nova prior to this straightener and it literally took ages to straight my hair. There was no shock or burn experienced with the Philips hair straightener. The cord of the straightener is long enough and doesn’t get tangled. I had travelled with this hair straightener and it worked fine. I hardly see any con with this hair straightener, it does exactly what it says and it’s a great replacement for salon. I would suggest save some bucks by getting this hair straightener and get salon like hair at home. Also a piece of advise is not to straighten your hair daily.
Wider plates helps in quick straightening of thick/long hair
Easy to straighten your hair
Doesn’t damage your hair
Hair looks shiny and neat
Gets heated within 60secs
Straightens curly to straight hair
Long cord helps to extend the straightener
Gives Salon like finish to your hair
The Ceramic coating doesn’t get rusted.
Works perfectly even after 2years.
A good investment for your hair.
Great replacement to salon.
Saves a lot of time.
Recommendation- If you have medium to long hair like me, I would highly recommend this hair straightener due to the wider plates. Due to the ceramic coating there is no damage or frizziness and hair looks straight, shiny and damage free.
P.S-If you are unable to find this model in the market, you can opt for Philips HP8316 Hair straightener. It is a succesor of Philips HP8315 model and comes with Keratin ceramic plating which should be great for your hair.

Perfect fuller looking eyebrows play a huge role in makeup. Anastasia was the first one to notice and claim that an eyebrow can make or break your makeup. She was clearly right and now the world knows the trick of getting perfectly arched brows. Yes today’s review is about Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade Dark Brown. I was always into eyebrow products even when I was a beginner. I remember using eyebrow pencils and slowly moving to brow powders. I was using the VOV brow powder for a very long time. I was very hesitant to try the Dipbrow Pomade but took a leap of faith and just convinced myself to finally invest into this product to see what’s the hype is all about.
An award-winning waterproof, multitasking, and buildable matte pomade that stays put. Apply and blend a small amount of Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW® Pomade with an angled brow brush to effortlessly outline, fill, and texturize brows.
Long-lasting and smudge-proof
High-pigment formula glides on easily and dries fast
Acts as an all-in-one brow product
*Available in 11 shades
Price- $18.00 for 0.14 oz (Currently available for $14.40 on the website.)
It comes in a sturdy small jar that holds the product. The cover of the jar displays the brand logo and you can see the shade name on the base of the jar. The product doesn’t have any fragrance. It doesn’t come with an applicator or brush. The brand should have included a small brush considering the price.
My Experience with Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade Dark Brown-
I was very confused between the “Ebony” and “Dark brown shade” from Dipbrow Pomade. Looking at the swatches online “Dark Brown” looked like a safer option than “Ebony”. I don’t like fierce looking or rather obvious looking brows. I prefer my brows to look natural and match the color of my hair. Though, my hair is black naturally the shade “Dark Brown” turned out to be the perfect shade for my eyebrows. This gel liner indeed looks very natural on application. The texture is easy to work with and glides effortlessly. After a few minutes of application, the formula becomes matte and unmovable. It is absolutely waterproof and smudge free. If you have scanty eyebrows it will be a wise idea to invest in dipbrow pomade. This product will be a great value addition in a bridal kit. Although it is pricey and classifies as a high end product, it is absolutely worthy unless you like using brow pencils. Makeup Revolution also came up with the dip brow pomade incase you are looking for a cheaper option.
