My Take on this product: 

I really love this product look in my waterline, this is shade is suitable for daily wear. Highly pigmented eyepencil. Its creamy and glides on waterline smoothly. It doesn't required any reapply of eyeliner. It stays in waterline for more than 10 hrs. It doesn't sumdge unless climate is very hot . Staying power of eyeliner is very good. This is not matte eyeliner you will find some shimmer on it, it will  slightly glide down after some time. Removing of the eyeliner is lilte bit tough, there will some green sparkle around eyes after removing it. Since its waterproof it does good job on that.

 First swatch - 2 Swatches and 2nd - Rubbed 2times with hand


  1. Staying power good
  2. Good Water proof eyeliner
  3. Glides smoothly 
  4. Doesn't required reapply it
  5. Smudge proof
  6. Can be used in smooky eyes with lil bit smudging

  1. Price is little bit high
  2. Removing of the eyeliner is little bit tough
  3. Sharping pencil is tough, pencil broke soon. We need be careful on sharping the pencil
Rating 4.5/5 

- 0.5 For (Price, Sharping)

Overall this is good product with creamy texture glides well and highly pigmented color

Henna is one of the ingredients that is used for a lot of beauty reasons. From colouring your hair to using it for mehendi, henna has been one of the best hair care ingredients available to us. Since ancient times, henna has been used as a hair dye. The burgundy brown hair colour is due to the henna leaves which acts as a natural hair dye. Apart from colouring your hair, henna is also good for treating other hair problems. If applied on the hair, reduce hair fall, reduce dandruff, henna helps strengthen the hair, nourishes the scalp and softens the hair.

Henna have many good qualities but i want to warn you in adavance "Henna turns your hair brittle" when over use of it. and we need to follow good hair care regime.. I will tell you some tricks which i followed for 12 years..

I use Godrej Nupur Henna which has good blend of all herbs.

Mix Henna in Tea liquor leave it for overnight. Before applying henna add 1 egg white , 4 tsp of curd, 5 tsp of Coconut oil.  Add some beetroot juice for burgundy colour

I apply lil bit of warm almond oil to my hair before applying henna.

Always apply henna using finger tips (i apply using finger tips) or brush divide your hair into section apply in scalp, apply henna to stand roll them up to head apply in roll.

After covering full head wear shower cap. Rinse after 2 hrs don't leave behind this.
