8. BONITO Miracle Complexion Sponge 

The reason of having this brand sponge in this list because BONITO SPONGE CAN BE EASILY COMPARABLE TO REAL TECHNIQUE SPONGE. I bought this sponge just after it launched on amazon.in as I heard loads of good reviews over it and that's why I Pick up almost all color of sponge from this brand as they are priced only Rs.199/-. And I am using it for a couple of days now and am loving it a lot so I think it is worth sharing tool on this list.
Can you imagine? Only 199/-. 






9. COASTAL SCENT BRUSHES:-
 
There was a time when people was dying to have brushes from this brand. I am a big fan of COASTAL SCENTS BRUSHES. The shipping charges of products when shop directly from the website can burn your pocket throughout the year so keep your eye open during BLACK FRIDAY SALE when they usually have 50% off on entire site mostly. So yes this is another brand of brushes that makes out its place in this list too.





10. Colorbar Brushes and VEGA:-

 
Last but not the least two more brands that I would love to recommend here in this list as without these two brand this list going to be incomplete. As the post is all about TOP 10 so I include two brands at one point. Silly me :P I know :D
VEGA and Colorbar are two brand that has some good brushes at an affordable price. Although the powder and blush brush of Colorbar is a bit scratchy on my skin but they have some awesome eye brushes which I am using now from years whereas VEGA'S professional range of brushes and normal eyeliner and eye shader brushes are worth mentioning.






So, that's complete my TOP 10 MAKEUP BRUSHES list. I hope you find this post helpful.


Until next time.
Love Sammy :*

REVIEW AND SWATCH OF L.A. GIRL 50 WATT STROBING POWDER




A proper makeup always needs a good highlighter to highlight all the best feature of the face. And as I have warm undertone so I am always bit choosy or do a proper research before I buy any highlighter. So, this time my search end on L.A. girl strobe powder in shade 50 watt. 

L.A. girl has total 12 shades in this strobing powder range in which after researching and seeing all online swatches I decided on one highlighter that is shade 50 WATT.


Price:- Rs.950/- for 5.5g.


Availability:- Nykaa.com

Packaging:-

 
 The highlighting powder comes with a transparent lid, golden packaging.

My experience:-

 
I picked up the highlighter just in curiosity that how this highlighter actually works on my skin as many of my friends was raving about this highlighter. So I picked up the shade 50 watt which is a beautiful champagne gold highlighter. The highlighter has awesome pigmentation. A single finger swatch looks enough pigmented for single use on both sides of the cheek. So you need to be very careful and dust out excess powder from the highlighter brush before you apply it on your cheek. The highlighter powder is fine in texture. They blend like butter into the skin giving a very subtle glow. The highlighter actually looks little more similar to Becca highlighting powder Champagne pop. The highlighter is the perfect shade for fair to medium skin tone beauties. The powder can be buildable according to choice. I prefer little more dramatic when it comes about highlighter on the cheek and for that L.A. girl, strobing powder in shade 50 watt is just perfect for me. I will definitely go to check out few more shades from this range in future.

















Did you grab any of these strobing powder from L.a.girl?

That's all for today.
Love Sammy :*

Chocolates ...!!!



I know the title of today's post actually brings you here to see what exactly I am up for today...


It has been a long time that I haven't done any proper blog posts, as I was so busy with my youtube channel to grow. But yes, today I sit back to write something for my blog only and that is all because today is "GOOD FRIDAY" and I have a holiday from my usual work so I am just relaxing and thought to write down something different from usual makeup or beauty blog post.


Chocolates...!!! this one word actually bring our inner temptation every time when we think about it (if you have sweet tooth like me.. :P ). 


So the last Christmas I was gifted by a sweet (like chocolates) and nice fellow blogger/YouTuber (Kanika Sharma and of "Her Creative Palace")  a surprise gift which consists of some handmade chocolates. I clicked those pictures of chocolates before I open it to have it as I am a crazy chocolate lover so I knew that it going to be finished within a blink if I opened it (Maybe that is the reason that I always fight with myself to get back into shape...but that is a different topic).


So she sends me some beautifully packed yummy taste chocolates that have a touch of homemade.


I loved those chocolates and so my kid too. We actually end up the entire packet within two days. So I thought why not I do a post on it so that you guys can have a look with same ;)
So here are all those pictures that I clicked a long time back but cherishing till now...





And finally, if you want to grab something from the same person to gift someone or for yourself then here is the details of the same :)



***Between my bestie(Nabamita) send me something that was really beautiful, smells good and tastes yummy on last Christmas which has no relation with this particular post but just thought to share here as we are talking about gifts and gifting to our loved ones.



That's complete today's chocolate post. Wish you all "GOOD FRIDAY". May God bless you all.

Love Sammy :*
