Smashbox Limitless Eyeliner
 What it is:
A waterproof, long-wearing eye pencil that provides bold color that won’t smudge or budge for up to eight hours.

To be honest I have worn it everyday since I have got it. has beautiful buttery texture which makes the application very easy.  The pencil is nicely pigmented provides good black color ( not intense) to my upper lid and settles to matte finish.  Its long lasting I mean really long lasting and works even better with Smashbox Lid primer.
Limitless Eye Crayon in Onyx does not smudge at all you need to take it off with good makeup remover. For me this is a hit I have mine in travel size from Smashbox Try it Kit but I look forward to repurchase it.  Smashbox Limitless eyeliner in Onyx can be purchased from SEPHORA and it retails for $19. Mikyajy Sabaya Line and Define Pencil
What is it?
popular, Versatile pencil that promises intense and long lasting color.
This liner has soft texture containing natural properties for sensitive

 If you are a regular reader you must be aware of the fact that Mikyajy is one of my favorite makeup brands. I have been using Sabaya Line and Shadow pencil since last year and I always go back to it. This time I got one in Travel size from this Sabaya Beauty Essential Kit.   The pencil has got smooth creamy texture and it glides on effortlessly. It provides very intense black color to my lids suitable for both upper and lower lids. The lasting power is also impressive it stays put for very good period of time. The only downside of this pencil is that it smudges other than that I have absolutely no issues. Sabaya Line and Define pencil can be purchased from any Mikyajy store for SR/AED 49.

I would definitely go with smashbox limitless Eyeliner Pencil as it does not smudge and it stays put for amazing period of time.

Tell me have you tried these two?  


Sabya Line and Lash by Mikyajy

Sabaya Line and Lash by Mikyajy

Hello Gorgeous Ladies

Don’t you love it when you get two products in one I love it too. Today I am going to talk about such product by my favorite brand Mikyajy. Its eyeliner and volume mascara combined in one tube. 

Product Claim:

Your makeup kit will thank you for
this clever little addition of long lasting liquid eyeliner and volumizing
mascara…in one! The two-in-one format for this line & lash mascara &
eye liner is convenient as well as effective, with long lasting properties and
the option to purchase in waterproof or non-waterproof versions.


My Experience:
The tube is a bit large and good looking I have always loved how Mikyajy pack their products. I have the normal one this is also available in waterproof version.  Let’s talk about liquid eyeliner first. 

Sabaya Liquid Eyeliner by Mikyajy

Liquid Liner:
The liner has intense black color and it dies up to provide matte finish just my favorite thing. The liner is a bit on runny side but it goes on really smooth the brush is of great quality and helps to achieve the the perfect wing. 

Sabaya Volume Mascara by Mikyajy

Volume Mascara: 
The Mascara wand is really good works really well on my lashes it separates and  cover each and every lash but I am not impressed with the performance of the mascara. The formula is a bit on the dry side, a lot of product comes out and stick to the brush. This Mascara gives good volume and a bit curl to my lashes but sad it does not hold it well. 

Tell me have you tired this one?  You can get it from any Mikyajy store it comes with the price tag of  SR/AED 59 but I got this one in my Beauty Essential Kit.

L’Oreal Professionnel’s Spring Summer 2014 IT LOOKS

brightness and dazzle of spring and summer come alive in the color palette,
cuts and styles of the latest IT LOOKs.. In terms of the color palette, the
collection carries popular runway shades of vibrant pink and red ombre along
with celebrity favorites such as Bronde (balance or blend between brown and
blonde)) and Mocha blonde. Attractive cuts and sought-after styles are rife in
this collection and have been classified into different categories namely the
Middle PawithWaves, Side-Swept, Volume and the iconic Pixie.

A fashion favorite, the Middle Part style can be supported by both soft and
glamorous waves. The more cutting-edge side-swept style can be worn in
different ways such as the youthful and rebellious side-shave, more alluring
side-tuck or the fun and cool side-braid. Moving to a more classic look that is
also an all-time favorite, big hair now gets even bigger as you see glamorous
girls sporting either bombshell volume or the more daring XXL volume! Fashion
forward and very charming, the pixie cut is a true rage with the current crop
of celebrities wearing it either swept forward to showcase its layered texture
or up and away for added allure.

striking cuts, colors and styles have been beautifully brought to life by the
four sensational IT girls with Poppy sporting the Pink Splashlight, Chen Ran
wearing the side-swept Red Ombre,Malena showcasing the XXL Volume Bronde and Pixie
carrying theMocha Blonde. While
the pink splashlightcreates a “ray of light” effect with a band of lighter or
brighter hair stretching from ear to ear, the Red Ombre moves away from the bleach
highlighted ends to a more punchy color. The fascinating Bronde is a shade
whose intensity varies based on the skin tone of the one wearing it while the
precious Mocha Blonde flaunts mocha on the roots and gradually becomes lighter
at the ends.
Pick a
look and head to the salon so that your stylist can advise you on the most
suitable cut, style and color option from this season’s exciting looks.  For the perfect IT LOOK, your hairdresser can

Beauty Essentials Kit

Sabaya Beauty Essentials Kit by Mikyajy
Hello Gorgeous Readers 
Today I am going to talk about a cosmetics bag filled with beauty essentials. Last year I got sent a beautiful package by my Favorite brand Mikyajy & I have been loving it and using it since then. Lets have a look at the product claim first.
Product Claim:

Who says you have to truck around a
ton of makeup to get a look that works on you? The Sabaya Beauty Essentials
contains 5 no-hassle beauty must-haves that simplify your makeup routine and
pretties you up for the world.

frequently used items from the Sabaya and Girl Tools lines, including the
Sabaya Line & Lash Volume Mascara & Liquid Eyeliner, Sabaya Line &
Shadow Pencil 01, Sabaya Caring Lip Gloss 09, the Girl Tools Round Mirror and
the Girl Tools Purple Atomizer.



Why I love it:
You get five essential products in this one little cosmetics pouch. The Pouch is beautiful and perfect for traveling purposes.  A dual Mirror helps you to quick fix up your make up.  An Automizer for carrying your favorite perfume around all the time here is a detailed review of Mikyajy Automizer. Black Eye Pencil A must have item for me I have recently finished my old one now I am using this perfect little thing.  Mascara and Liquid Eyeliner, this is great two products in one I love the liquid liner the brush is amazing, the color is jet black. As far as the mascara is concerned I love how it curls and volumizes my lashes but the formula is too thick.  Last one A Clear Lip Gloss, apply it as it is or over a lipstick.
