Swatch of Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper

When I got this product, I was extremely excited to try it as I am growing my brows out and haven’t gone to professional to get it threaded for a long time and am really struggling to keep my brows look good. I have heard a lot about this product and I was keeping fingers crossed as I wanted to keep a natural touch to my look.

How to Apply? Fill in your brow with Pencil with a light hand, retouch with Powder and there you go.

It is super easy to apply and if you are a lazy person like me then this product is just for you. It takes only 2-3 minutes for application and you are ready to go.

It has about good 6 hours staying power. It gives a natural look to eyebrows without making it look fake which is a major plus point. It doesnt fade away by rubbing and it doesnt transfer at all.

The best part about this duo shaper is – it is easy to apply and is budget-friendly.

I was having high expectation with this lipstick as I heard some amazing reviews about it.

I ordered Nykaa Matte Lipstick in shade Naughty Nude. It is a pretty nude shade in reddish or pinkish tone.

It comes in a pretty black case which has a magnetic cap. So, you dont need to worry about the lipstick’s cap being open on its own.

picsart_11-04-07-37-32

It has pretty good stay of 4-5 hours. It is good for dry and chapped lips as it hide away the lines.

I applied it in the morning, it stayed for good 4-5 hours and as I ate sncks with the lipstick on, little lip color was worn off from inside part of lips. But that was okay for me.

I liked the price as well because it is budget friendly.

The description of product in website somehow does justice to the product. But it is not completely matte. Keep this in mind if you are looking for complete matte lipstick.

How to clean ‘White Shoes’ and maintain them- DIY

Owning white shoes can be a task.They look seriously very pretty but they can get dirty very soon and cleaning them becomes mandatory.

img_20160917_135952094-01

But how will you feel when I tell you that cleaning them is really easy. Yes, You heard me right. I will show you how to do it with just three basic ingredients shown in picture down below.

picsart_09-17-09-05-54

  1. Detergent
  2. A Clean Toothbrush
  3. Small bowl of water
  4. A small tub of lukewarm water for last dip (For Canvas Shoes only)
  5. A clean damp cloth (For sneakers)

PROCESS:

Get your dirty shoes with toothbrush and a small bowl filled with water and little amount of detergent.

picsart_09-17-08-53-09

First of all, Take out the laces out of your shoes to wash them separately. I will tell about it later.

Brush off the dirt from shoes with dry toothbrush first. Now, Dip the toothbrush in bowl of detergent and start rubbing it on shoes gently. You will notice that the dirt will start dissolving meaning you are doing a good job. Repeat it on entire shoe. If the inner rim of shoe is dirty, repeat the same by taking them out or inside only. If you have sneakers, I recommend to take them out and rub the toothbrush filled with detergent and dip into clean water for once and let the dry separately.

Now, you are done with both shoes, soak up your shoes (when they are canvas) into lukewarm water for fifteen minutes to let all the dirt out. Take them out and let them dry in sunlight. But make sure they are not kept outside for whole day as it can attract dirt again.

For sneakers, as you are done with rubbing the shoes with toothbrush. Take the damp cloth and gently clean the shoes with it making sure all the dirt is gone. If they are little wet, keep them aside to let dry.

Take a small spoon of Ezee (solution for cleaning sweater) into a bowl of water and put your laces into it for half an hour. This will retain their form making them soft and clean. Take them out and let them dry in sunlight as well.

RESULT:

 

picsart_09-17-08-51-56-01

The shoes will be white like a pearl again. Try this method out and let me know if it worked for you.

MAINTENANCE: 

  1. Take some Beeswax and rub it on entire shoes. Now, take a blow drier and blow it for some minutes on the shoes. It will make the shoes water proof and you don’t have to worry about pouring anything on them.
  2. Don’t wash your shoes in washing machine. This can damage the quality of shoes.
  3. Clean your shoes in every two weeks to keep them white forever.

Good luck!
