NEW IN! The Zoeva Brush Edition

So, I finally gave in and got myself some Zoeva Brushes... for 'the kit' ofcourse - because I really need more excuses to buy makeup.
They took about 9 days to get to me, mostly because I wasn't home the first time they tried to deliver them. I finally got my hands on them the day before, and I have to say it was love at first glance.
I bought the Complete Set which comes with a wide variety of brushes for the face and eyes, all packed in a sleek looking black pouch with really cute bright pink lining.
The 15 brushes consist of -

  • 102 Silk Finish
  • 104 Buffer
  • 106 Powder
  • 110 Face Shape
  • 128 Cream Cheek
  • 142 Concealer Buffer
  • 227 Soft Definer
  • 228 Crease
  • 223 Petit Eye Blender
  • 231 Petit Crease
  • 234 Smoky Shader
  • 235 Contour Shader
  • 317 Wing Liner
I also got the 109 Face Paint Brush for contouring. 

Every single brush is so soft and incredible quality - really impressed with these at first sight/use. Though I haven't washed them or used them enough to review, my first impression is nothing but positive! Keep your eyes peeled for a favorites/review post!

Have you tried these? What are your thoughts?

A Brow Game Changer

If you're a regular around this part of the web, you know how much I talk about this product, so much so that I don't ever wear a full face of makeup without using this. Infact ever since I've found it I haven't had the itch to try anything else that does something similar/same thing.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade in Black Brown is so right for the eyebrows, its almost scary. Its a gel - moussey texture that is so insanely pigmented that I would advice you to proceed with caution.
Its a long wearing water proof product that can guarantee perfect everybrows all day long. It keeps the hair in place, its a cool toned dark brown which is a great match for my natural hair colour and it has yet to fail me. It truly is one of my favorite products that I feel doesn't get much of chance to shine. Hence this post.

For the record, I got mine from Cult Beauty where they give you free international shipping with your first order... just sayin'.

A New Base Love

You know how I've always wanted to try the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation? Well, I never did because I could never figure out what I shade I would be or how to get it shipped to me because of how expensive it was! Well, imagine my utter surprise and glee to see that our Makeup Kit for school included 4 shades of this foundation. I was even more surprised to see that both Barcelona and Syracuse (the two shades of foundation I was confused between) were a part of the 4 we were given.
I'm currently inbetween the two, but if I were to buy myself one of them, right now, I'd lean towards Syracuse, but come winter I'll be using Barcelona.

The foundation has a medium coverage with a satin finish. It isn't dewy, it isn't shiney, its just.. as the name suggest a glow.
I've been using it everyday for 2 weeks now. On various skintones and types and I thought I would give you a round up of this little wonder.
It costs GBP 31 (Around INR 3000). The range of colours is ridiculously large and has both warm and cool undertones.
The coverage is medium, but buildable to full, which I have done, and it never goes cakey or thick looking. It really sinks well into the skin without emphasizing texture of settling into lines.
No matter what your skin type is, it seems to last fairly long and doesn't fade till the 8 hour mark, which is great in a foundation.
It doesn't have SPF to it photographs like a dream, which is always a good thing!

I have to say, I am very impressed by this, and by the looks of it, it may become a kit staple for me.
Have you tried this? What do you think?

P.S Keep your eyes peeled for a quick 'what I've learnt so far' post!
