QVS ~ FLAT TOP POWDER BRUSH ~ it contours, it highlights and it blends too

QVS ~ FLAT TOP POWDER BRUSH ~ it contours, it highlights and it blends ;)
Have you ever come across a brush that looks good, feels awesomely soft and contour-highlight-blend all at the same time,, !! well I didn't untill I came across this lil chubby baby in the New U store ,, m so glad I picked it  up  over that ugly looking costly xyz brush.

I imagine this brush in a small little princess's hand applying a baby pink blush to the apples of her cheeks ^-^ (only if it was pink!! or purple in my case ;)

Let me tell you something honestly , I was never a face powder person, hated the look it gave , cakey and absolutely fake. I love having my skin look like it is originally albeit a bit polished but not something that it actually isn't. So you see powder was a no-no for me,,This was till super-powers came into me and I thought of using powder with this chubby lil thing. I was surprised and what a sweet little surprise it was, there was no cakey feeling, nothing as in fake feeling, no accentuation of dry patches..Do I need any more reason to love it?
I know I lived under the rock not knowing what's the true benefit of having a compact powder on top of any foundation/TM ~ :-\

What the product states ~

QVS Flat Top Powder Brush ~

~ Contour, Blend and Highlight
~ Flat top brush head for color definition
~ Ideal for powder and Mineral makeup

QVS ~ FLAT TOP POWDER BRUSH ~ it contours, it highlights and it blends ;)

QVS ~ FLAT TOP POWDER BRUSH ~ it contours, it highlights and it blends ;)

~ I have used it as a powder brush, a blush brush, a brush to highlight, blend, for a light sweep on a single overall lid colour and for liquid foundation (didn't go well with this one).
~ The brush is short-short like very short but it works superbly, the bristles are super soft, I have washed it three time till now and not even a single bristle fell out or the brush lost its shape.
~ The handle is thick and of good quality and gives a nice grip/hold. There are few brushes which gives a streaky finish on your face but this one does not.
~ It can even pick up baked blushes, so one more brownie to it.
~ It didn't do anything when I tried to use it to apply liquid foundation .
~ works amazing as a highlighter brush.

QVS ~ FLAT TOP POWDER BRUSH ~ it contours, it highlights and it blends ;)

For loose powder ~ Tap off the excess and then I use a dabbing motion ~ works fine for me.
For highlighter and blush ~ one light sweep across the desired area ; also to and fro motion.
For eyeshadow application (yes I manage to use this for eye shadow too) ~ one light sweep, specially with light shimmery shades - my current <3

QVS ~ FLAT TOP POWDER BRUSH ~ it contours, it highlights and it blends ;)

I honestly can not find a single flaw in this brush , a purple version of it would have been fantastic ;)

Price ~ 355 INR

Recommendation ~ If you are afraid of loose powder application ~ BUY this ,, well just buy this Its too good.

Tag : 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty


How was your day everyone? I spent the entire day reading books :) I love how I am so  feeling so refreshed after reading some 5 different books today.
By now I guess each and everyone of you are aware of this tag running on Blogs as well as on Youtube.
I think it is a very innovative tag and the way it delivers out your cardinal sins through your vanity is damn attractive :)
I am tagged by my sweetheart Pandora's Box to do this tag. If you haven't read her blog yet then let me tell you something,,you are missing out on  visual appeal+sensible reviewing+amazing information+sweetness overload blogger :).
 I found her answers very fun and the way she presented the post is as always a treat for the eyes, do read out her version over Here.

This tag comprises of questions you have to answer from beauty perspective.
So, lets see how sinfully I engulf in this beauty world ;)

Question 1.  GREED ~ What are your cheapest and most expensive beauty products?

My cheapest beauty product (That I love) is my Lotus Herbals cocoa lip butter. The most expensive has to be my perfumes.

Question 2 . WRATH ~ With which beauty product do you have your love/hate relationship with?

I had to think allot for Q1. But for this particular question I had my answer ready on my fingertips ;) It is the Revlon Photo Ready Foundation , Its pretty good as well it is prettttyyyy bad I tell ya

Question 3. GLUTTONY ~ What is your most delicious beauty product?

Hands down it is Vaseline cocoa glow body lotion ~ Deliciousness in a bottle ~ only If I could eat/drink it. M controlling the urge ;)

Question 4. SLOTH ~ What beauty product do you sloth because of your laziness?

It has to  be Loreal Liss Ultime shine perfecting serum,, Its damn good but then I am lazy as it involves my hands to go pick it up, pour it down and then my fingers to work it on my hair. Too much work lah!!

Question 5. PRIDE ~ What beauty product gives you most confidence?

People say I talk with my eyes so you will always find my eyes dark with kohl and on some special days with Bourjois eye shadow no.3 J Its my most favourite eyeshadow in the whole world.

Question 6. LUST ~ What traits do you find attractive in the opposite sex?

Has to be intelligence & a dreamer / smile and hair (eyes also ).

Question 7. ENVY ~ What item would you like to receive as a gift?

Giorgio Armani Maestro eye shadow ;)(My birthday is coming ;) ;) )

Ok nice and simple,,this was my take on 7 deadly sins tag.

7 bloggers I tag onto are ~

Punchy Pink ~ What do ya think ? ~ Lame I know!!

All day long I can hear people talking out loud,,,
        But when you hold me near, you drown out the crowd
Try as they may they can never define,,,
        What's being said between your heart and mine .... ♥ ♥ 

Pink-purple flowers, two white chairs in the balcony, cool breeze flowing around, a cup of lemon ice tea and Ronan Keating playing in the background,, life is surely a bliss  

I love colors depending on the season and the weather ; Punchy Pink fit the bill right on today :) (But why such a cheesy name :\ )

Its a fuchsia with coral base :) with blue colored shimmer. Recipe for girlishness it is!!

I bought only one shade from this Fast and Fabulous Shade by Lakme to try it out and I am so happy with it. I love the packaging, the silver cap is so pretty, Its sturdy too. The brush is short and you have to do a little practice with the brush cos the cap is quite broad, not so easy to handle.

The finish is so pretty, not so glossy but it's okay. It does get set within the claim of 40 seconds and that is great for a impatient girl like me  :D

The consistency is perfect, very easy to apply and non-streaky as well. The brush works fine too. No cons I can really really think of.

I am planning to get a couple of more shades from this range, but that will be possible next month only,,Too much of shopping this month. No budgeting works for me!! Plus next month is my Birthday so I have pretty good reason to splurge big time ;) 

Price ~ 175 INR

Recommendation ~ Yes please,, Its a pretty color  and the quality is superb.

A small little Haul :)

Hey all :)

Missed my little chit chats with all of you :)
I did little shopping few days back, I know I haven't done any blogging in days but that was because I was not fiddling out as in what other things can be done at this space ; a little has been formulated but then still a long way to go :)
So many things are going on in my life at the moment, at times it makes me wonder how I am managing it but then I have realized its all due to surrounding myself with positive and happy thoughts. Also another thing is to tackling one issue at a time and not do so many things at a time ;) as if I am buttercup frm The Power Puff Girls ;)

Some of these things will be reviewed in coming days :) Beauty Blogosphere has helped me so much , I shop wisely now!! ( Also the fact that so many of you write such honest reviews that it has helped me with the little skin issues I was facing).
