More make up forever aqua creams (lips&cheeks)

I explained before how much I love makeup forever ,I can't just pass beside it without taking a look or buying something ..the plan was just taking a look but I could n't resist ...I got more two aqua creams  take a look!!
press to inlarge for a clearer photo  
In this pic to the left is no.9 which is a coral with golden shimmer if u inlarge the photo you 'll see it clearly ,onthe right no.6 which is a beautiful fresh pink (I love pinks) also with golden shimmer
Here are the swatches on my skin
How to use:
You can easily use your hand to apply it and blend or the brush 
Advice:It's better to moisturize your lips or cheeks before applying the aqua cream .
It can be a good base for your lipstick that stays for hours until you remove it .
For the lips I use makeup forever mini brush no. 3p ,I got this as a set with another4 essential brushes,that's it :
  For the cheeks I apply it with my fingers,only small amounts as dots on the cheek bone  but the hard part is to apply the same amount for each cheek ,then i start blending it so fast before it dries and nothing can blend it or smudge it for the blending i use M.A.C due fiber no 130 ,it's flat from the top so it is ideal for buffering and blending (I'll review this brush separately soon) .
Thanks for reading if u like my review or have any comments or questions just drop a comment and i'll be happy to answer..

Makeup forever Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick

Hello everyone :
Today's review will be about one of my favorite brands makeup forever and I'm going to review the lipsticks  rouge artist  intense.
  Shades:They come in 50 shades from nudes, pinks, and reds to purple, black, gold, and neon orange.Colors:vibrant ,the color on your lips match the one in the tube .
Formula:Rich and creamy ,layer-able and long lasting without drying your lips.
Finishes:matte-pearl and satin.
 I used to say makeup forever products are all great except the lipsticks but now with the new rouge artist intense, I changed my mind !!!
I bought  seven colors ,u may see them similar but i prefer these colors and feel confidant wearing them
A closer shot
The colors are more vibrant in true life ,I'm trying to get a new camera but makeup and polishes are taking all my money ..Now these are the swatches on skin ..
Starting from left to right 42 (a cherry red),39 (bright peach),37(coral pink ),36(satin fushia),33 (beautiful fresh pink ),32 (soft pink ),38 (coral ).All satin finish
No 32 is used in tres vichy look and nude look from make up forever ,i always use it if I'm wearing red cothes with dark eye make up ,I feel it's more feminine than red .
In my opinion these are the best lipsticks this year and the big range of colors give you more  choices to find the perfect shade.
Hope it was helpful ,if you have any question don't hesitate to ask..have a nice day

Makeup forever aqua creams

Hi dear readers ,hope u all having a nice i 'll review the aqua creams from makeup forever.
What are they ?

In a 6 gram twist off jar u can find  an ultra-pigmented, long-lasting waterproof cream.
Aqua Cream combines the highest-quality pigments with mother of pearl particles to give immediate rich color payoff with a luminous finish in just one application. It’s long-lasting formulation will not crease or smudge under the most extreme conditions and its creamy and elastic texture allows for easy blending.
Shades #5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 are formulated for the Lips & Cheeks.

Shades #1, 2, 3, 4, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20, 21, and 22 are formulated for the Eyes & Cheeks.

Before using them it's better to moisturize the area so you can easily work with them .a little bit on your brush or hand is enough and it's better to do each eye alone because it dries so fast and when it is dry,it will resist blending or smudging and stay hours and hours..
They are water proof so they are perfect for summer and swimming .they are even good for tatoos,and the perfect choice for oily eye lids.
I bought 4 of them to try and i'm going back for more...Here is what i got:
As you can see the color in the jar is the same on skin ,it never changes even after hours.I use the purple no 19 and the turquoise no 21 and the emerald green as eye liners or under the eye and also inside it by using any old eye pencil ,just dip it inside the jar and line inside your eyes..
Hope this was helpful ,i'm going to get more colors and review about it soon .

Inglot brush 27 TG review

Hi ladies
I've been posting about nails most of the time so today my post will be a review about Inglot 27TG brush which is a duo fibre brush.
Taklon + goat
(squirrel substitute)
It has a flat top which helps to buffer the foundation .I use this brush to apply foundation and give it the air brush effect.I also use it to apply creamy highlighter and blend it.
The price is good comparing to mac but to be honest I prefer mac .There's one problem with this brush ...It looses hair every time i use it .
Hope this review was helpful and if u have any questions about inglot brushes just ask :)

kimmi junior inspiration nails

hello dear readers
my sister likes to collect kimmi  juniors and every time i see one of them an idea blinks in my mind ,this time i inspired my nails from this little cute kim (each one has a name l but i don't know what she's called:( poor little one :(
i don't usually wear bronze or golden polishes but this one totally attracted  me
in this mani i used zoya goldie as a first coat then zoya richelle as second coat so i can get a golden bronze
i used konad m 61 for the flowers & m36 for the butterflies all stamped with konad special polishes
& finally i dotted with my dotting tool on the center of the flowers with china glaze how street it is. 
As u can see the improvement of the dots cos i finally got my dotting tools :)
