A must have palette , ChriXtina Rocca – Beautiful you !

Hello everyone, hope you’re all having a fabulous day ! Summers are officially here , and its time for us to shine bright ! Its just not the glow on the face, also with bright , pastels, floral colors . Doesn’t it sound exciting ??? Well, I do…

Today, I’m reviewing a beautiful silky eye shadow palette by the brand called ” chriXtina Rocca “. For 12 ,  brightly pigmented shadows , you can find  no better value or quality than  this palette. The colors in this palette are so much fun! They’re all bright and very pigmented. That being said you can’t  really create a full look using this palette. There aren’t any neutrals to use as a crease color or a transition color , so you might need to dip into another palette to get the complete look. That being said it’s still beautiful and I love playing with bold colors, and this palette is packed with twelve  popping shades, so you  can  create dramatic looks with just one palette.

TEXTURE, PIGMENTATION & COLOR PAYOFF :

  • This palette is amazingly pigmented. As you can see from the above picture, it is loaded with a pretty good selection of blues & purples, berry and some dark chocolates, for the smokey look as well. 
  • I didn’t find any of the colors applying streaky or chalky, and they were picked up by my synthetic brushes  which was good. The color applies as it is, depositing the maximum pigmentation in just one stroke. Few colors may tend to crease at the bottom, but that’s acceptable. 
  • The payoff was just insane ! The color on my oily lids with a base stood for about 6 hrs straight , making this palette worth every penny.

 

FUN LOOK I CREATED USING THIS PALETTE:

Eye shadow palette , eyeliner, eye brow pencil & Powder from ChriXtina Rocca.

As you can see, even on the bottom of my lash line, the purple shade shows up very well. what else do you need, when a color brightens your overall look. Agreed !

Hey, wait… its not the end ! I also loved using their  Eyebrow powders, Liquid eyeliner and Brow pencil.

EYE LINER : 

 Lining and defining eyes has never been easier! Built with a uniquely thin and tapered felt-tip applicator, this  gives you careful control over subtle strokes and bold lines. Create winning looks with this rich, matte black finish that won’t smudge, flake, or take forever to dry. Cool and compact, this eyeliner  fits everywhere.

EYE BROW POWDER & PENCIL :

Soft powder that can be used on the eyebrows to fill the sparse areas and make them look more thick and even. Long lasting formula feels lightweight and comfortable on the eyebrows , yet is easy to remove; Ultra soft applicator for precise application; Fade and smudge, transfer and water proof so the brows stay fixed all day and all night …

This powder adheres to my skin and fills in my eyebrows completely and the color blends seamlessly for a natural, full appearance. The product lasted all day long, without having to reapply, and it didn’t smudge or feather.

These days, eyebrow definition is always at top hierarchy. This waterproof pencil defines the eye brow, and accentuate the arch just like that! Waterproof and comes in a range of colors. 

Overall, I’m really impressed with this amazing brand. They have a good quality , no harmful ingredients, easy to blend and work with it and most important – its highly affordable.

Defined Brows are always wonderful!

Hey my Loves, hope you are all having a fabulous weekend ! Last week had been a busy week for me, with my sister coming over from the United states. Long story to go, now lets get to the topic. “DEFINED BROWS ARE ALWAYS WONDERFUL”. Why did I say so? Keep reading this one new product, that definitely caught my attention and I’m loving it so much !

yes, it is from KARAJA MAKEUP , an Italian Brand ! how exciting to know, that we all love Italian foods, and never know that they have such good brands in makeup.

It is an Italian brand, and are available at Lifestyle stores, Centre point stores and Debenhams across the Middle east. They are cruelty free brand, and they do not test on animals.

COLORS & SHADE RANGE :There are 4 different types of shades in this eyebrow pencil category. They are mostly specified as numbers like 1, 2, 3 and 4.

  • Eyebrow Pencil 1  – Jet Black
  • Eyebrow Pencil 2 – Dark Brown
  • Eyebrow Pencil 3 – Light Brown
  • Eyebrow Pencil 4 – Chocolate brown

WHY YOU WILL LOVE THIS PRODUCT : 

  • Its a dry and heat resistant pencil.
  • Once applied, it can be softened with its brush, to enhance your eyebrows.
  • A special formula for gentle shaping and natural filling of the eyebrows.

MY LOVE FOR THIS PRODUCT : I always love product which is east to use, even on the go! And so is this. Very slim, chic and simple packaging. The right color for my eyebrows. I don’t have to have various brushes , brow gel or spooly separately ! This pencil is like a magic which defines your brows well, fills the sparse areas, and makes your eyebrow thick.

Because of the special formula, its heat resistant which means, setting the brows with a brow gel need not be a necessary step. This seems like a magic charm for me and works well for me. 

For your better understanding, i have also posted a before and after using this pencil on my eyebrows.

As you can see in this ” Before”, my eyebrows are not defined, thin and sparse.

In the “After” picture  filling it with the KARAJA EYEBROW 2 pencil.

I definitely love the way it fills my brows, easily and I totally recommend this for the beginners as well as the office goers who do not have much time to fill in the brows, and work with them and yet they want their brows  to be sharp and bold !

Please try this amazing product from Karaja Makeup, and let me know your thoughts too…

until then,
