History of the original Kajal

The KAJAL pencil has been traditionally used in India, Egypt and in the Middle East for decades now, and is one of the oldest types of eyeliners to be used. It was traditionally made from heavy metals, (lead sulphate) however due to the ill-effects of heavy metals, modern kohl pencils are made from ingredients that are non-toxic such as resins, plant extracts and soot. 

The Kajal pencil was also used in North Africa by people of all ages and genders, as it was believed to protect the eyes from infection and desert sun, while also moisturizing and protecting the skin around the eyes. Egyptians, who are believed to have pioneered in making the Kajal, made many other colors except black such as malachite and lapus lazuli.

Review : Note Cosmetics ULTRA RICH COLOR EYE PENCIL in Deep Forest


Hi Beauties,

Spring is here so a pop of color to make the eyes look fresh & bright….I love colored liners cant resist them. Had been trying the Note Cosmetics ULTRA RICH COLOR EYE PENCIL in Deep Forest an elegant bottle green shade.pencil-close

Its creamy, blends very well and glides like butter under or over the eyes…didn’t use inside the eyes as I have watery eyes so I’m quite sure this will not stay… As its creamy so set it with a loose powder or eye shadow of the same color to make it last for long hours.

Overall very pretty color has a gorgeous sheen which is just a steal for its price…highly recommended!

Its available in 10 shades ….Price tag just 1.500 Kd


You can find it at Kuwait city , Mubarkiya, Souq Zal , shop no. 35 and also at Jahra, Alamiya Mall.

Or you can contact their Retailer here in Kuwait on this no. 965-99864970

Review : Make Up For Ever Mascaras & Make Up For Ever SENS’EYES


Hi beauties,

Had been using the Makeup forever mascaras which I got back so thought this will be the right time to give my opinion about them …. No doubt the mascaras are good quality, very black formula, non clumpy formula and have divergent brushes. What I liked most these are very easily removed.. no hassle any good makeup remover will work with them, I had been using the Makeup Forever Sens’Eyes  which is just amazing no irritation or loosing lashes very delicate on eyes but does it job well!

extra  Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagant mascara has a conical shape & natural fiber bristles..the shape makes the mascara reach the lashes easily, though I found this a bit difficult on lower lashes than figured out a way how not to smudge all  the mascara on my under eye lolz…… So just wiping the extra mascara from the tip and used the tip of the brush on the lower lashes rather than the whole brush… the brush went through the lashes and coated them evenly without smudging on my lower eye, this made it lot easier as the front bristles are short. Overall a good mascara gives length noticed it has fibers which helped in lengthening and volume specially to the root area making them look thick.

smoky-lashMakeup Forever aqua smoky lash Mascara has a densely packed bristle very easy to work with brush. Though it gives good length and volume to the lashes but it flakes a bit after  some hours……maybe its me but it flaked which I hate in my mascara!


Makeup Forever Smoky Stretch Mascara this is my favorite among these as it has thin long conical shaped brush which makes the mascara reach the lashes easily. Holds the curl well, has fiber formula so gives a false lash effect which means it lengthens, thickens and adds full volume to lashes…love it ❤

Didn’t try the lashes yet but will be perfect for any dress up party 😉 will update.

Hope you find this helpful….have you tried any of these?

Review : Clarins Kit Sourcils “Pro”


Hi beauties,

So keeping with the hottest trend of the season tried the Clarins Kit Sourcils “Pro” eyes & eyebrow kit which is multi functional. It comes with a double ended applicator , a spooly, a pair of tweezers , highlight powder, eyebrow setting wax and three powder eye shadows.

The packaging is so elegant…. a fashion statement , also has a large mirror on the inner side.Besides being pretty to hold its very travel friendly and functional. I love how it has everything for grooming your eyebrows on the go but with a style….well done Clarins!



The eyeshadows a well pigmented enough to tint your brows  to look natural (rather than giving them a tattooed look which is not happening at all ) and the wax is just perfect to hold the brows in place.The eyesshadows can be used on the eyelids beautiful shades specially the taupy one.

How I use it to get a darker tint and full brow look, I use the wax with the spooly and comb along the eyebrow hair before applying the eyeshadow to the brows… applying wax before will give a stronger tint as the eyeshadow adheres to the wax and give thicker fuller look…when I finish I again comb with the spooly to get the naturally hairlike looking eyebrows.

The highlighter is also well pigmented , matte and with a pink undertone…does its job well.

This  season eyebrows are more in focus and why not…as it not only frames the face but also bring focus to the eyes.Thick full brows give a more young look to the face also…a tip* to get more full eyebrows just rub some castor oil when you are going to bed to nourish and grow more brow hairs.

If you want to try this Clarins Kit Sourcils “Pro it is available at the Clarins counter at Debenhams, Sephora, Wojooh and Vavavoom stores.

Review : Bourjois Mega liner Ultra black


Hi beauties,

Tried the blackest, mattest eyeliner I have eva ever used its the Bourjois Mega liner Ultra black..its so black you can notice on first swatching.It comes with an angled felt tip which is just like a calligraphy marker..more about it you can check HERE

It claims you can wear it for 24 hours , I didn’t try it for such long hrs. but noticed after applying that its very long-lasting and no-smudgable…as the black pigment in it applied dries in secs like ink. Stayed as I applied….. after 6 hours too.

With its angled felt-tip applicator it can be applied in an thin or extra thick line or  just a medium type, as the slanted tip makes it very easy to apply.

Did a cat liner with it, I did dotted points than joined them and evened it out …I loved how black it is!


Available at Boots, Sephora Vavavoom & Wojooh for 6. 500 Kd

Makeup tips & tricks ; How to match your eyeliner to your eye shape!

While there’s no hard and fast rules when it comes to liner, like any other cosmetic, certain types can suit different people better than others. Ever envied your friends black rimmed eyes but wonder why it doesn’t quite hit the mark when you try to replicate it? You might not be choosing the most flattering way to apply. Read our guide and find out how to do eyeliner that suits you.


Winged eyeliner
This is a look that’s worth mastering. Why? Because it suits most people especially those with rounder eyes. This is because when you wing the liner out to the side you create the effect of elongating your eyes sideways. Make the wing slightly longer the more you want to play up the look.


Top only
This is great for smaller eyes as it will open the eyes up and draw attention to your top lashes if you choose to draw only on the top. Curl them for an extra eye-opening effect. Just remember to keep liner on the lash line and not on the inner rim as this will negate the effect.


Double wing
While this is fun to experiment with if you suit the winged liner look, it’s even better for people with close-set eyes. A winged end will draw attention towards the outer edge of the eye, making them appear wider apart. A double wing has double the effect.


Inner rim
This is great if you have medium to large eyes or almond eyes. Avoid this if you have small eyes as lining the inner rim makes them look smaller. If you have a natural almond shape, tracing the inner rim will accentuate the nice curve of your eyes. This is also good for wide set eyes, if you emphasise the inner corners and be sure not to draw out the line on the outer edge of the eye.


Thick wing
This is perfect for hooded lids as you can draw the line up to where it is required to lift and open the eyes. Liquid liner will make sure lids don’t smudge it once you’re done applying.

Review: Bourjois Contour Clubbing Waterproof eye pencils


Hi beauties,
Colorful eyepencils are always perfect to add color to any look and easy to apply…and to find a good one is always a pain….some are hard , dont smudge evenly or not pigmented enough & most just travel all over my face after an hour like I slept in it :|….but now found an amazing eyepencils which are just super easy gliding eyeliners that just go on like butter smudge beautifully and once set dont move…yes the Bourjois Contour Clubbing Waterproof eyeliners.

Very brilliantly hued plus gives a metallic sheen.When applied its smudgable…. very versatile can be worn as an eyeshadow all over the lid for a glossy metallic effect or an eyeliner just to give the metallic pop to the eyes….and I bet it will last for long hours.Goes off easily with a oil makeup remover or just take some olive oil to dissolve it and take it off.
I personally have used this gorgeous, multi-dimensional shades in 60 taupe of the top a taupy brown color, 52 disco ball a pearly silver shade, 50 loving green a bottle green shade and 45 blue remix a mettallic blue ….In the evening just go by smudging it on my upper and lower lash lines for a quick, no-fuss, smudge proof look with lots of mascara.
For day time I paired it with a matte brown eyeshadow and a smudged black eyeliner…and it looked so perfect giving the right amount of color to the eyes.


These eyeliners have good range of funky colors to choose from, whether you are blue, brown or green eyed pick the color that will just pop your eye color…so I think everyone must have these 😉

Sabaya Super Volume Mascara has a nice big brush but not like the usual brushes, the brush a bit different its flexible moves as you apply.Loved its as it gives the most clump free full dark lashes adjusting the amount of mascara you need to apply to each lash .The brush is real good reaches each lash and the formula is also nice didn’t notice any fall outs after 3 hours too, holds the curl also well. Gives nice voluminous lashes as it says.


Sabaya Glow Gloss beautiful nude gloss very comfortable not sticky .Now what’s special about this gloss it its loaded with antioxidants so whats better when you get protection and benefits besides looking beautiful its creamy nude in color with very micro shimmer particles…I applied it alone without a lipstick,  loved how my lips looked full & luscious <3… you can read more about it here
