Lets move on to the lens it self ....

One in One out : enlargement effect is good
natural light
indoor lighting

direct sun light : please excuse me !!my eyes are squinting  a bit in sun light

At night : with flash
My thoughts :
I really wanted to try hazel brown lenses on myself. That is why i selected Neo cosmo edge hazel ( also known as Neo Cosmo Sunflower Hazel ). These lenses has two tones of hazel and brown along with black outer ring which makes the whole appearance very natural and the color blends beautifully with my dark brown eyes and looks really natural. But the brown has some red in it too , that is why they looks a bit freaky when i took pictures with flash. Over all , these lenses are very comfortable and does not causes any irritation or heaviness , even after 8 hours !!

Comfort ( 9 out of 10 ) :
These lenses are really comfortable . You should know that Neo Cosmo lenses are known for their comfort level. You can easily wear them for up to 8 hours. The lenses are a bit thinner than my usual lenses ( as compared to EOS and Beuberry ones i have )

Design & Color : ( 8 out of 10 )
These are two tones hazel brown lenses with sun flower kind of pattern in the middle and a rough black outer ring . These lenses are meant to give out a natural look . And that is what they deliver successfully. The color hazel some times looks reddish specially when you took pictures with flash , so look out for that if you are going to wear these at night parties.


Enlargement : ( 8 out of 10 )
These lenses are 14.2 mm in diameter. That is why the enlargement effect is moderate . So do not expect  dolly eye kind of look from these. You can achieve minimum enlargement effect without going over board. If you are looking for a decent enlargement , these are for you ..


Over all, I am really happy that i was sent these lenses for review purpose . They gives a soft and sweet look to my face and looks really natural on me.

Indoor Soft light :
Different Angles :

My thoughts :
I am pretty much impressed with the color , design and comfort these lenses provide. It seems to be impossible to gather all of them in one , but it is provided my EOS max misty grey circle lenses. The color grey looks equally beautiful in day and night light.It does not look freaky with or with out flash. The design is very pretty and what i love most is that it has a black outer most ring and grey spikes in the middle which blends really well with the inner brown ring . Despite the fact that these are a bit thicker than my other lenses , they are the most comfortable lenses too .

Comfort : ( 10 out of 10 )
Why i gave full marks ??? Just because, I have been wearing these lenses for 7 to 8 hours daily , but i did not feel any itchiness or dryness. Even i did not need any comfort drops with it. Even i did not face any blurriness in vision too.

Color & Design : (9.9 out of 10)
The design is not very unique but what makes it perfect ? the darker outer most black ring and the perfect blending of colors inside . The color grey is very unique and does not look freaky with flash. It looks beautiful and natural in day time too.

Enlargement : (9 out of 10)
With 14.5 mm of diameter , it does not gives extra ordinary enlargment , but it is perfect for me as i do not prefer doll-eye or emo kind of look. If you are looking for a subtle and natural looking lenses with adequate enlargement , these lenses are a right choice for you.

My thoughts :
I wanted to try a natural looking circle lenses for myself , that is why i selected Neo Cosmo 4 Tones Queen Grey . The color is very subtle and blends really well with my dark brown eyes. It gives minimum enlargement , but as they are meant to look natural . I am okay with it. The outer ring is not exactly full black , that is why they look really natural and pretty. The middle of the lens have two tones of grey and the last circle is yellowish brown towards pupil hole . All colors blends really well into each other and enhances the beauty of these babies..

Comfort : ( 8.5 out of 10 )
These lenses are comfortable to wear, but i felt a bit dryness in my eyes after 4-5 hours. I put some comfort drops in my eyes and they are back to normal again . I would recommend you to please keep comfort drops with you as you can also face the same thing. I did not feel any itchiness or redness , even after continuous wearing of 8 hours. 

Color & Design : ( 9.5 out of 10)
These are 4 tones circle lenses and i am glad that i selected these. I really like the color blending , it looks very natural and subtle. The color grey is very pretty and does not make you appear like a freaky person.They would not look freaky in pictures , even with flash lights. so you can wear them to night parties as well. I think people who want natural looking lenses would really love these..!!

Enlargement : (8 out of 10)
These lenses are 14.2 mm in diameter and they will not give you EMO kind of eyes or doll-eye look , but they are perfect for those who wants enlargement without going overboard. As i am not a daring person , these lenses are up to my mark. and i am in love with these.

Conclusion :
I really like these lenses because they blends really well with my eyes and changes my eye color without going overboard.

more detailed view !!

Color \ Design : ( 9.5 out of 10 )
The color itself is very gorgeous. Its a true violet color and the design adds beauty to it. It has black outer ring which gives certain depth and enhances its design and color. That is why color and design is noticeable also from a distance. I would not have been selected this color for me because i think it is too daring for me. But i like it how it comes out in pictures . These lenses are for those who likes to wear prominent colors lenses. My choice is more natural looking ones. But i would probably be using it my next EOTD's or will be wearing them for parties. The color comes out more towards blue when you take pictures at night with flash and may look freaky . So look out for that.

Comfortability : ( 9.9 out of 10 )
Beuberry is a brand name which honestly i never heard before, but i am really surprised to see that these lenses are very comfortable. Even though these lenses are a bit thicker than my other lenses , but i did not feel any itchiness or dryness while wearing them . I wear these regularly for 4 to 5 hours just to check their comfort level . But i did not have any problem with them.

Enlargement : ( 10 out of 10 )
With 16mm of their diameter they can really gives you huge eye effect.If you are looking for doll-eyes or Emo kinda eyes. these will really work for you . But according to my personal taste , these are too much for me. I would it for those who really wants noticeable enlargement to their eyes.

Conclusion :
Over all , these lenses are comfy , gives overwhelming enlargement, and design is really pretty. If you are an in-style kinda girl , then these circle lenses will really work for you
.

Review : Liz Earle Instant boost skin tonic Spritzer

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Hey my sugar plums ,

 After using  Liz Earle Hot cloth Cleanse & Polish ( read review here ) before , i really wanted to try few more of products of Liz Earle , their correspondent is a lovely women and she sent me another  product for me to try and do a review. Actually Liz earle instant boost skin tonic is the second step after cleansing your face with their hot cloth cleanser. She asked me to choose between spritzer and bottle and i instantly decided to choose spritzer for me , just because spritzer are more convenient to use than regular bottles. So want to know that how did i find product ?? Scroll down please ....



Product Information :


According to their website :

This heavenly floral-scented, non-drying toner refreshes, soothes and brightens your skin. Gentle and alcohol-free, it also adds a fine layer of moisture.
Pour onto a cotton wool pad and sweep over face and neck after using Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. Alternatively spritz over face and body to revitalise at any time.
Naturally active ingredients include organic aloe vera to revitalise and soften and calendula, chamomile, cucumber and natural source vitamin E to soothe and refresh the skin.
             Suitable for all skin types

 How to Use :
Instant Boost Skin Tonic is the essential second stage of your daily regime:
Moisten a cotton wool pad and sweep over face and neck every morning and night after cleansing with Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser or using one of our special treatment masks. Whether your skin is dehydrated, oily, dull or congested, the nourishing and brightening botanicals will help to leave your skin feeling soft and looking fresh for longer. It also primes your skin perfectly for your choice of Liz Earle Moisturiser.
Alternatively spritz over face and body to revitalise at any time. The fine mist can even be used over make-up.
list of ingredients

My thoughts : 


The packaging of this product is exactly same like hot & cloth cleanser. I am glad that i selected spritzer for myself , because i am too lazy to use cotton wipes and then throw them ( sorry ladies , but i am !! ) So the spritzer is the best option for me . So i can also carry it around while travelling and use it without any hassle.
spritzer flows skin tonic evenly

I am using this product daily every morning and night for a week now. After cleansing with hot & cloth cleanser , i splash my face with cold water then then spritz this tonic on my face and let it dry on its own. Just two to three pumps are enough. It closes my pores after cleansing and leaves my skin more soft and supple. In the morning , i feel lazy that is why i skip the cleansing step and just wash my face with facial  foam and then spritz this tonic on my face. It provides me a good start for my day time makeup.
I also use it as a makeup setting spray after using my mineral loose powders . and i noticed that it helps face powders and loose mineral powders to stay put on a bit longer. My skin feels healthy looking .
It does not feels sticky on skin and gets absorbed into skin after few minutes. It has a mild floral smell , which is very refreshing and is another plus point for me. More important this is that it is suitable for all skin types and made specially for sensitive skins. Jumping towards pros and cons:

Pros :

  • it smells good
  • non sticky formula
  • made with natural ingredients
  • makes skin soft and supple
  • spritzer bottle
  • Alcohol free
Cons: 

  • Expensive( 200ml available for £12.00 )

Price & Availability:
    My recommendation :


    Yes , I will surely recommend this , If you are really looking for a product made with natural ingredients and if its price tag do not bother you !!.

    Liz Earle Intant boost skin tonic is available for £12.00 on Liz Earle's Website. They ships world wide.
    You can also visit their Facebook page for more details.

    monavé Mineral Cosmetics : Review & Swatches

    Monday, August 15, 2011
    Hey girls ,

    Happy Independence Day to all my Pakistani fans and followers. I wanted to do a Independence day NOTD post but could not because my system got infected by a malware. I just hope that it will be fine in a couple of days .. ( please pray for it )
    Few days back i received few samples from Monave Mineral Cosmetics to review on my blog. They asked me to select few shades from their range of cosmetics and then they send samples in sifter jars .let me introduce Monavé mineral cosmetics to you :



    Monavé Mineral Cosmetics: 


    According to their website :
    Mineral Makeup by Monavé is makeup that you can trust. Full ingredient disclosure reveals a product line based in whole, organic botanical ingredients, and completely gluten-free formulas that are 95% vegan. Monavé has never engaged in animal testing, and chooses the highest quality mineral makeup ingredients, not simply for the press, but for the health and performance of the products. As always, all products are free of paraben preservatives, dyes, and bismuth oxychloride. Monave Mineral Makeup also believes that all women deserve high quality, natural makeup, so Monavé has a wide array of shades for all complexions, lifestyles and ages.
     Loose Mineral Foundations :


    Product Description:

    Monave loose mineral makeup foundation is extremely versatile, and can be applied dry with a flat-top foundation brush or mixed with a facial moisturizer for sensitive or dry skin. Our mineral foundation has complete coverage and full spectrum sunscreen, and oil control properties. No separate concealer or powder is needed in most cases.

    My thoughts :

    I was  asked to select two shades of  loose mineral foundations. I selected Shade Sandra and tan girl . Sandra is the closest match for my complexion , however tan girl is a bit darker and has yellow undertones. The Loose mineral foundations are very fine texture and has matte finish and they blends easily, it gives natural coverage. I applied this using my F80 flat top kabuki brush. and it is easy to apply too. You can also mix it with your favorite moisturizer or toner to achieve more natural look. Lasting power is adequate , i needed to re apply it after 4 hours.
    I got few compliments from my fellows when i applied this for the first time . My friends asked me that what i have applied to my face . Nobody could guess that i am wearing any foundation.
    here is a swatch of these mineral foundations on my hand :

    shade : tan girl : loose mineral foundation

    shade: sandra , loose mineral foundation


    :
    Setting Powder:
    Monave setting powders are a silky blend of the lightest minerals with just a touch of clay. Applied after foundation, the powders will aid in oil absorption, as well as add a smooth, matte, "finished" touch to your look. These powders can also be used as "face powders" for women who need very light coverage, used in place of foundation.

    My thoughts :

    I selected shade Tawny for myself. It is a perfect match for me . it gives a no shine look when applied after foundation. It also sets your makeup , i used it with my kryolan tv stick and got the perfect results , i am very impressed with its performance. It absorbs extra oil from your face. It looks natural and does not leaves a whitish cast on your face . Most important thing is , it is made my mineral ingredients. Here is a swatch of this on my hand :

    shade : tawny
    Monave Mineral Blush & Eye shadows :


    I selected Monave blush in shade star lilly , it has semi - matte finish with micro sparkles in it . It is a warm pink shade with lilac under tones and looks great on my warm complexion. The micro sparkles looks great when applied and gives a soft look both in day or night time . It blends easily , and needs a light hand to apply. It stays put on for atleast 5 hours in my case without fading.
    I also selected two Monave mineral versatile powders in Turquoise  and Light Gold. Turquoise is a beautiful true turquoise shade with subtle gold shimmer . The color can be build up according to your need. But staying power is adequate. It starts fading after few hours when applied without any eyeshadow base. Light Gold is my favorite shade it is a neutral shade of Gold , which does not look too yellow or orange , it also has micro specks in it which looks beautiful . This particular shade does not last longer on my eyes.
    I also received Monave Semi- matte eyeshadow in Tierra Medium. It is a great shade for day time makeup and staying power is good too . I also used it for contouring my nose and it did well in that way too/ Here is a swatch of all these on my hands :

    (Left to Right ) : Turquoise, Light gold, Star Lilly, Tierra Medium


    What i like most about these cosmetics that you can also order sample products if you are not sure what color will suits you best. You can visit Monave Mineral Cosmetics here. They ships worldwide.
