High End Inspired EOTD & HOTD

Hey Butterflies!

This week after a long time I participated in Aqeela's Weekly Make-up Tag and the theme was 'High End Inspired'. I created an eye look using a plum purple shade along with some gold. Put on falsies for more high end oomph and just recently I learnt how to curl my hair using a flat iron so decided to add a picture of my curled locks as well to add to the glamour.

Hope you liked this look! X


             

Color Studio Professional Pro Dip 100% Water Proof Eye Liner - 002 Jet Black Review & Swatches

Color Studio Professional Pro Dip 100% Water Proof Eye Liner - 002 Jet Black Review & Swatches

I had bought this Color Studio Professional Pro Dip 100% Water Proof Eye Liner a few months ago and today we shall see whether it is fit for this sweating summer or not?

To what I have come to believe after using this is that it is indeed water proof and smudge proof but...there's more to it, wait. We'll come back to it later.

So, as I said it is water proof and it did not budge on me even after a long night out, however, I had not cried or sweated in it so to check if it really was water proof  I held my hand under the tap (as shown in picture) three different times and it still did not budge at all! Now coming back to where we left our incomplete previous para, I'd like to add that even though it does not smudge under water, it does come off fairly easily with gentle rubbing. This might be a plus for many as you don't have to work hard to take it off unlike most water proof products out there as it is easily removable with any cleansing milk, make-up remover or just rubbing it in water as mentioned earlier. However, if you are some one who has a habit of rubbing their eyes unintentionally, this would get flaky and come off.

Coming to it's applicator, I do already have a steady hand with liners but I still believed it would give me better control. It does but on the whole I dislike the applicator. For me it does not pick enough product to complete a flick without multiple dips due to which it also does not come off opaque in one go and needs a build up. Also, the tip is not precise and you'd end up with a thick line whether you want it or not. Plus my applicator's tip got a bit distorted at the very end of it on its own.

Overall I think this is a good purchase for a decent price of 400 PKR. Just keep your hands away from your eyes and you'd be good to go! ;)

Christine Lip/Eye Pencils Review & Swatches

Hi guys,

My exams finally ended this week and now I am back to blogging. Unfortunately, I have got a very short break from university -_- so I'll try to post as often as I can during this break. You might have noticed that I changed my blog's layout a while ago and I hope you all like this change better. There are still bits and bobs left and I'll try to get them done asap. Meanwhile, don't forget to follow me on bloglovin' here as GFC would be going soon. :(


Now coming to today's review, a few months ago I was tempted to get myself some coloured pencil liners and I luckily ended up finding these Christine ones at Naheed. I got myself 5 at that time and had received the bronze-gold glitter one as a gift previously.

The shades are Kajal Black 580, which is the jumbo one, White Rose 407, Electric Pink 403, Green 374 and the blue and bronze-gold are glitter ones, coded  CN-11 and CN-02 respectively. These are inexpensive and yet have good quality for their prices. You can check my haul here for the prices.


The Kajal Black 580, glides on smoothly and I bought this as it is ideal for smokey eyes. While, I actually bought the White Rose 407 for lining my waterline but it just does an okay job there. It definitely applies better on skin than on waterline like most light shaded pencil liners so I'll be using it more as a base for bright eye shadows.

Electric Pink 403 and Green 374 are the best of the lot. They have really good pigmentation and I use them for lining my lower lash line to add a pop of colour. Just like the Kajal Black 580, they glide on smoothly and stay put for a good 2+ hours. They fade but don't smudge much which is the best thing about them. The pink one leaves a subtle tint when it fades due to which you could go on longer without the need of re-application. You can see me wearing Electric Pink 403 in a make-up tag post here.

The glitter ones, CN-11 and CN-02, swatch well on skin and are easy to apply on eyes like the rest of the lot but they don't show up as beautifully as they do on my hand. They have a creamy consistency and perhaps tend to smudge a bit more for that reason. All this was a bit of a disappointment for me as they costed a little more than the matte ones so I'll be getting more colours in matte in future rather than these.
