Krylon Professional Translucent Powder

Hey Everyone, today I am sharing my views on Translucent powder from Krylon.

Usually I set my foundation with MAC MSF Natural or MUFE HD Powder, but I was in search for a budget setting powder. Then I came across Krylon Translucent Powder.

It is a well known product among professionals who work for the Entertainment Industry (Theatre, TV and Films). So I thought to give it a try. I got this in shade TL14.

Smashbox Eyebeam Double Ended Brightner

Hey everyone, today I am sharing a Brightener from Smashbox. This is a double ended chubby brightner pencil for eyes from Smashbox.

Eye Beam is a nice product to have. It helps me look well-rested, even when I am not. The color is brightening without being harsh like white liners can be. It is subtle but it makes my tired eyes look much more awake and brighter.

Essie Ballet Slippers

It is a sheer milky delicate pale pink color. Love this color. This gives a classy and polished look to my hands.

According to Essie, it's one of their best sellers. I think it's the simplicity of the shade that makes it so popular. It's one of those shades that you can wear for absolutely anything and it will always match your outfit. It is kind of like "your nails, but better."

Happy Thanksgiving

                                                             Happy Thanksgiving Eveyone :)


Splatter mani usually take a lot of time and it is really a mess to clean it up. But here is a short cut for the perfect splatter mani.

I used my Konad Satmping plate M21 for creating the splatter dots. I stamped them randomly to give the messy look.

This is how the splatter looks on my nubs:

MAC Pro Sculpting Cream Copper Beech

MAC Copper Beech is a pro-sculpting cream. It is warm golden brown with Orange undertones.
When I heard that the pro sculpting creams, I made my mind to give them a try. Being an oily skinned person I usually stay away from the cream makeup products.

According to the MAC website:
A cream-to-powder formula for sculpting key features. Silky-smooth, easy-to-blend and neutrally-shaded. Apply where extra dimension is needed, eyelids included. Provides moist, skin-soothing, natural-looking sheer-to-medium, buildable coverage.
