Ideal for Liquid foundations but can be used for powder and cake foundations too. Use them for your cream contouring and highlighting or for applying face powder, no restrictions 🙂

The one in the picture is by Real Technique. It is basically a contour brush but I use it to apply blush and highlighters. Amazing results.

Flat foundation brushFlat Foundation Brush:

These are flat foundation brush , if you want , you can try with it but I am not able to use it for foundation instead I use it to apply face mask, concealer & cream contour.

These are some of the brushes I mentioned in the video. To see the complete video, click here. Here is a suggestion for everyone, if you are a beginner, I suggest go for an affordable makeup brush sets, they are equally of good quality as high-end. Do not splurge on high-end, first try from the drugstore which ones suit you. Drugstore makeup brushes are also of extraordinary quality, they will give you the same result as any other brushes will. Never think that if you are using MAC , then only you will get flawless results because it is totally wrong. Achieving flawless makeup is by the technique and product you use not your brush. My makeup brushes are mostly from the Drugstore because I am very satisfied with them. No complains whatsoever , so check down below my suggestions.

  1. Bh Cosmetics Brush sets
  2. Coastal Scents Brush sets
  3. Morphe Brushes
  4. Real Techniques.

I also have bought some sets which is not of any well-known brand such as Make Up For You. If you get your hands on one of these sets, then use it! Regarding shedding of bristles even two of my Sigma brushes started shedding after my first wash. Moral of the story, go for affordable ones with good quality. The brands I mentioned above are the ones providing us with reliable quality brushes.

Too faced tried giving us all that we need in these palettes, from matte to satin, shimmery to glittery. Name it and you get it. The packaging is really cute and I love the idea of separate palettes as it makes it really easy to carry and so ideal if you want to gift it to someone. It has this note space at the back where you can write the name of the person you want to give it too.

toofacedmakeupreviewThe mascara , I haven’t tried as yet, but it has been raved about by the beauty queens of YouTube so I hope you shouldn’t find it hard searching for its review. However I will put up my review as soon as I’m ready for it.

What I do not like is the pigmentation is not as good as what Too Faced usually offers to their buyers. I was expecting a lot more. I won’t say it has a very poor color pay off because that is not the case it all. Pigmentation is good and colors are so beautiful with eye shadow base but not as good as I expected from the brand. Special mention to the duo chrome shades which are in these paletts. Yoohoo! I’ll be popping swatches of these on my Instagram , so be there with me ❤

I would like to mention the blush in these palettes, I wish they had some darker ones too as  dark-skinned girls as myself can’t use it as blush. Well I’m not really dark but wheatish and still I can’t seem to use these for my cheeks.

glamgalslipstick-creamelipstick-mattelipstick-review-makeupreview

Cons:

  • the packaging- I wish the lipstick bullet where the product is in, would have been of good material as Glamgals’ other products which has an awesome packaging.

Check out my earlier Glamgals Product reviews on their nail product and dual lip gloss that won my heart.

My final verdict:

As I have mentioned the Pros and Cons already, I wouldn’t be going to much of those details. I’m sure you might be wondering about the longevity of the lipstick. It is not long-lasting, which is very much okay with me because it doesn’t claim to be one. Not unless you are buying a long-lasting lip product, you shouldn’t expect one to be. Lipsticks always need touch ups that’s the reason I make sure I carry the lipstick shade I am wearing on a particular day, in my purse as I’d be needing it for touch ups sometime later during the day. So here you are getting extra makeup tips from me. 😛 However the Glamgals Creme Matte lipstick did last for hours till I had burger and french fries party 😛 You get so much of the product in the tube that make is so worth every penny and of course the quality which I already have raved about earlier.

My Favorite Blending Brushes

A secret to perfect eye makeup look is a lot of blending. We do not want to show anyone as if a painter used our eyes as canvas. When doing my makeup, I always remember these golden words-

Yes, yes ,yes to blending and No to harsh lines”

I always say this, there are no rules when it comes to makeup. If I find a brush that works perfectly on the crease of my eyes, is soft, and fluffy, I will use it as blending brush. All depends on what look I am going for that day.

So here are my favorite brushes to blend my eyeshadows , whether matte or shimmery. I own way more than a normal girl should own(not proud) brushes but I picked my top most favorites.

Me favorite blending brushes
Me favorite blending brushes

So I have here :

2 Sigma Dual brush I got from my Eyeshadow palettes in Dare and Flare- The black bristles shed a bit otherwise it is just my ideal.

2 Real Techniques brushes- The very soft bristles makes blending of multiple eye shades on the crease.

1 dual eye brush from my Anastasia Beverly Hills World Traveler Palette. – This brush is my no.1 favorite because of the size. Perfect for cut crease looks.

1 from Bh cosmetics which I grab most of the time. This came in a set I bought not too long ago and it was such a bomb deal. Check here.

1 bought from a Facebook seller ,a dupe of BH Cosmetics Sculpt line and it is amazing.

What is your favorite blending brush?

Remember, our brushes need equal care and we should wash them regularly. Check out this post to see how I clean my makeup brushes.

Happy Makeup- ING ❤

Am I late?–Fall Favorites!!

Hello Beauties,

It’s all about Fall in the beauty and fashion world. I couldn’t resist but dig into my makeup stash fro some “fall-ish” products which I am going to share with you all. My bad, I cannot get all makeup brands in Dubai. Even the drugstore ones becomes high-end if bought from here. Thinking smile So I always opt for online stores/sellers that can get all my desired products from U.S for a lesser price than what the market offers. I wish I had a best friend in the U.S who would volunteer to ship to me and I can whole heartedly shop from the U.S websites. Angel Okay so me coming back to reality, I have ordered online couple of items which are ideal colors for FallRed heart

Oval Brushes Dupes

I know I am always late in giving reviews but hey , my blog focuses on reviews of products after I “use” them and not just post about them without using. So. rest assured, these brushes are very well used before I bring them to you.

I have here the famous oval brushes also known as tooth brush kind of brush and I actually have heard many calling them with other funny names. These are basically dupes of some high-end brushes, won’t go into details on which brands as you can Google about them easily. The original ones are crazily expensive which is one of the reasons I never bought one.

 

Oval brushes

The set has 10 brushes inside of different size for different purpose. It comes in a box with some words misspelled like “multipupose”:P Not sure of it is intentionally, there is a possibility after all it’s from China 

Ovalbrushes

The back of the box carries details on how the brushes are supposed to be used but I have not read them. I just didn’t bother. I was so excited to try them that I skipped that part and started playing with them the way I want.

Like any other brushes, these brushes are supposed to cater to your makeup application needs and there are brushes for each and every product. So for foundation, powder, contouring, nose contouring even for eyeshadow, these brushes are to be used. While it is good to have guidance, I feel you need to experiment in order to get the best use of them according to your requirement. What is designed for foundation might just not suit you. For example, the largest brush is for foundation application, but for some it might just be too large and the size smaller to it might be a perfect fit instead. So, do not be scared to experiment.

How I use them:

The big 4 brushes are perfect for foundation, concealer , correctors and even powder but please note these brushes is for full coverage powder application as they are dense. So if you want light powder, use a fluffy brush instead.

The 5th brush from the left is best for cream contouring on the cheeks.

The 6th and 7th from  left for nose.

8th for gel eyeliner or lining your lid along lash line. Do not expect application to be very precise for the eyeliner because the brush won’t do that job . It is ideal for a rough lining and smoked out look.

Oval brushes small

These 2 small brushes are the ones I do not reach for a lot but when I am in mood of doing something creative , then that’s the time I make use of them. These brushes can be used as crease brush. With very light hands, you can apply your transition shade with minimal effort in blending. It can also be used for applying shades on the lid.

These brushes are truly amazing! The foundation brush applies foundation like nothing and in very less time. When you want a quick foundation application, grab this brush. The shape and bristles are designed in a way that it makes blending very easy. Use the fine rush to draw the contour shade under cheek bones and then blend with the dense brush. Perfect for beginners.

The handles are bendable and sturdy. Very easy to grip and use.

If you are in a “no-makeup makeup” mood, apply your moisturizer and set it with powder using one of these brushes, the coverage these brushes give to powders will make you go gaga.

They do not smell odd like most of the China made brushes, after washing the bristles are still intact and still no bad odor.

I ordered these from a Pakistani Facebook Page Budgetshopping.pk

If you are in UAE, Souq.com and Groupon usually have deals on them, in fact they are available almost in all online stores.

Please note, if you are busying these dupes, do not pay more than AED150 . Many are selling for even lesser. Find out seller that offers the best price.
