DSC00887

According to Bourjois,

Bourjoisโ€™ make-up brushes are ultra-soft and high quality – enabling easy application and a professional result every time.

Perfect for use at home or on the move the short handle means itโ€™s small enough to fit in your handbag, but with the long soft bristle head it is perfect for use with bronzers, powders and blushers.

Price: INR430/-

Available at all Bourjois counters.

My experience:

I have always been fascinated by a thick fat kabuki brush! ๐Ÿ˜› but I could never find any that came without a hefty price tag. The day I bought the Bourjois Kabuki Brush was the day that changed my life, no seriously, I am not exaggerating!! This was the first FIRST face brush I ever used and now I can very confidently say that applying powder with a kabuki and with puffs that come with the product makes a lotttt of difference. Read on to know my experience with this kabuki!

My February haul.

DSC01113

I have been a good girl these 2 months and limited my expenditure on makeup. Yayy!!! I had not put a ban on myself but rather decided to make wise purchases such that I donโ€™t waste money and only buy stuff that Iโ€™ll definitely use! And more or less, I have obeyed this decision well.

Earlier I was literally hoarding the same kindof stuff, read โ€“ eyeliners and kajals and felt super guilty โ€“ oh! Another new liner!! Now, I am trying new things other than eyeliners and have no guilt whatsoever. I have ventured into blushes just this year and loving them. Also, I am liking face makeup more than eye makeup โ€“ I am seriously in love with compacts ๐Ÿ˜€ I donโ€™t use foundation or primer and recently I am exploring building coverage with powder and loving the results!

My experience:

When I got hold of these colorful brushes from Colorbar, it was like a dream come true! I had always dreamt of makeup brushes with coloured bristles. But all of the attractive brushes were made by international brands which werenโ€™t too easily available in India. I was even considering buying the ones launched in the MAC holiday collection recently, but couldnโ€™t get myself to spend so much ๐Ÿ˜ฆ And then Colorbar heard me and brought these beauties into my life! Aahh ๐Ÿ˜€

But does this brush also perform like a dream? Read on to know!

QUICK REVIEW: bareMinerals Makeup Kit.

Hello everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

I would like all of you to welcome my friend Makshita to BeautyfullJourney. Sheโ€™s one of my closest friends from school and she is here writing a guest post today! ๐Ÿ™‚

So here you go Makshita ๐Ÿ™‚

Just sharing my experience with you all, thanks to my awesome friend.

bareMinerals is a makeup collection from bare escentuals. Make up that works for your skin and not against it.
It does not have any sulphates, petrochemicals, synthetic dyes, synthetic fragrances or parabens which all other makeup products have!
My sister gifted me this kit containing:
– bareMinerals primer
– bareMinerals matte foundation
– bareMinerals all-over face color
– bareMinerals mineral veil
– Full flawless face brush
– Flawless application face brush
– Maximum coverage concealer brush
– Light stroke brush
– Brush conditioning shampoo

The matte foundation, all over face color, mineral veil and primer;

altAkdjhA_0VDeRkhJ5LGk5E-u65I1rLAzQQlc1AxdF3kSr (1)
Starting with the primer, Well it instantly smoothens away dry and rough patches, fine lines, excess oil and enlarged pores.

The matte foundation does wonders, specially for greasy/oily skin. It eliminates shine and gives a natural matte finish.

The all-over face color infuses radiant light into the skin feeling like it’s coming from within, enhancing the complexion.

The mineral veil gives the ultimate finishing touch to the makeup.

The brushes and the brush conditioning shampoo ;
