Curlash: Curl & Comb – Review

My favourite part of makeup is Eyelashes. Whether it is by using our #ishimmer lashes or curler, make up doesn’t go without lashes.
It was 3 years ago when I decided to design our best-selling Curlash, I was so hesitant at first because I didn’t know if women use or like curlers at all. The way you curl is kind of scary anyways. But I decided to go for it and design a curler that is not even in the market.

I was thinking of so many must haves, a curler must look pretty and chic, held properly because you need a good grip to curl the lashes without hurting your eyes/ lashes, apart from curling I wanted them to be brushed, so curled and brushed. It was a nightmare to figure out how to curl and brush the lashes at the same time, using one tool. I wanted a curler to brush the lashes because this way you are able to use it in so many ways.

  1. To actually curl and brush your lashes before applying mascara and or false lashes.
  2. After taking off your makeup you can curl and brush your lashes to remove any excess residue of mascara or lash adhesive.
  3. Whenever an eyelash serum is applied you curl and brush your lashes after to make sure it touches each lash for growth.

So, I have all the 3 reasons to why I needed the brush on top of a curler, the question was then HOW? how many teeth should the brush have? should it be thick or thin? After back and forth testing and sampling, aiming to achieve the 3 outcomes of a curler and brush. Thanks to the help of our manufacturer, Curlash was created, ever since it’s been hard to keep it in stock. I LOVE IT. Thank you.

Aside from being the brand owner, I actually own two Curlash. One I use for curling and brushing my lashes before applying mascara and false lashes. The second one I use after applying an eyelash serum overnight. It is so so easy to clean too.
It is such a convenient and must have tool. Honestly. Everyone who tried and used it swears by it. The rose gold glamorous look and feel, not to mention the plastic free high-quality packaging. Everything about it, is a must.

It is designed to fit each and every eye shape, made for beginners and professionals, you can also decide which side you want to curl. And you can easily just curl your outer lashes. It is so safe to use and no matter the pressure you apply on your lashes it was designed to stop the pressure before lashes are harmed.

I use the Curlash every morning and night, even when I have makeup on during the day and want to go out at night but I don’t feel like applying makeup again, I just use the Curlash to curl on top of the mascara and poof, ready to go out.
I have sensitive eyes, so trust me. if you are like me, this will work for you too. I’m not saying this because I am owner of the brand, but I love creating products that are convenient, real, glamourous and are of full effect.

P.S there are so many ways and features to this Curlash but, one more thing. You can remove the brush off of it too and reattach it whenever you want.

Thoughts: Power Fabric by Giorgio Armani

Anything skin coverage its Armani Beauty for me. I am a huge fan of their foundations  Luminous Silk, Maestro and Power Fabric Foundation. I have them all and I use each one on different days / occasions depening on the look I am going for. I love how airy they apply and yet provide the coverage I need without irritating my skin.

To be honest I do not wear concealer everyday, I like it when my skin is able to breathe. So I apply concealer on occassions or if I really look tired.

When I heard there was a Power Fabric Concealer coming out, I got so excited. I remember going to the Armani counter at Selfridges and I wanted to try it instantly. I was surprised at how AMAZING it looked and felt on my skin. I thought it was just in my mind but it actually enhanced the shape of my eye. SOLD.

My current shade is 5.5, it provides high coverage yet feel so light and breathable with a velvet finish. I sometimes apply it on bare skin and it still looks the same, stays for long hours, blends so easily and comfortably and does not cake at ALL.

It is honestly a concealer that does it all: conceals reddness, blemishes, dark circles, wrinkles and fine lines by providing a brightener fresh complexion.

The concealer comes in 20 different shades and its applicator allows for application over large and small areas using different techniques.

I find it to be average priced, 32 GBP which is not expensive but not cheap. Personally I really think its worth the price and it lasts a long time.

This product is a YES !!!

Farsali Volcanic Elixir – My Thoughts

I tried the first product of Farsali almost a year ago or so, few months after its release. I thought it was another beauty brand that just mixed a bunch of oils in a bottle and claimed it’s great for the skin. I was wrong, I loved it.

This time, I decided to try the Volcanic Elixir – and WOW.66950A7A-79EF-4C94-B8DD-7B73408BEF87

What this Oil is made of:

The oil is extracted from the nut kernels of the Tamanu fruit, which flourishes in the south pacific islands of Polynesia, due to the volcanic atmosphere. Volcanoes have a very good effect to the surrounding soil. The Volcanic ash contains minerals that are beneficial to plants and provide nutrients to the soil.

 

Benefits:

The properties in oil can help regenerate skin tissue. It also has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibiotic, and antioxidant properties, making it ideal for acne sufferers.
The Volcanic Elixir aids in regenerating new healthy skin. It can be used on acne and acne scars, dry and scaly skin, stretch marks, etc. The oil does have a strong scent (disappears few minutes after application).

 

Why I love It:

The Volcanic Elixir is a thick and heavy oil with a strong nutty aroma and yellow color. It is best to use this at night because of the strong scent and thickness of the oil. I either apply it before bed, or throughout the evening when I have a solid 2 hours at home. The thickness of the oil takes time to get absorbed and that is why you need to dedicate time for it.

I absolutely love the effect it had on my skin, it left my skin so soft and hydrated, sometimes I experience redness in my pores in my T-Zone area, but this oil manages to close the pores and reduce the oils that are extracted. I also have some scars and this oil also managed to reduce them, I’m in love with it.

Another plus is that I use a drop of oil on my lips, wait 30 minutes and then I apply a liquid lipstick, usually these lipsticks dry out your lips, so with this oil I don’t find any problems. If I feel my lips are still dry I re-apply the oil after I remove the lipstick.
