Reviews ~ Nars, Chi, Benefit, Tweezerman

Here are the reviews on the Pretties From StrawberryNet


Nars Multiple Duo ~ Maldives/Riviera
Two words. Love it.
I was very very surprised to see how big the packaging is. In my head, I thought it would be the size of the blush and each multiple would be the size of half the blush. I adore both the colors and I find the texture of the Multiples very interesting...smooth yet neither sticky nor oily. The pigmentation is also "Just Right"
I wish I was the one who created it ;p
Buy Again? Absolutely! In other colors, of course.



Benefit ~ Thrrrob Turned On Face Powder
This is too sheer to be worn alone, so I like to layer it over a cream blush. It does bring a nice glow to the face. The brush is nice, not to mention the fabulous corset box. But I can live without this for sure.
Buy Again? Nope.

Chi Silk Infusion ~ Silk Reconstructing Complex
Omg this smells *sooo* good! Ironing does go smoother with this on my hair. I haven't used it much, but I know that even if it does not improve my hair, I'd still buy it again for the lovely smell.
Buy Again? Answered already.

Tweezerman Tweezers
WOW! These are amazing. Tweezing feels so effortless with them. They are sturdy and they grip the hair so tight that you don't have to worry about not pulling from the roots. I love that they come in a vial and has a tip cover, this ensures that the tweezers will always be as good as new even when you carry them in a stuffed make-up pouch/bag.
Buy Again? I don't think I'll need to. But if I had to, Y-E-S.

I hope these reviews will be useful to some who are thinking about trying these products.


By the way, StrawberryNet has a Valentine's Day Promotion going on right now until the 14th of February. You can check out the detailsHere 


Valentine's Day!!! Woohooo....! The first occasion of the year when you can really justify splurging :)

  4. Loveeeee chi silk infushion. Smells like a yummy boy. A chi sales rep once told me that she puts in on her skin sometimes. I started to do that and its fabulous.

  5. I I'm gonna love the Nars Multiple Duo, they look really good on you girl, very pretty look ^_^

    I'm planning to buy Benefit Throb from StrawberryNet but I don't like too sheer blush hehe. Maybe it's like Benefit Dandelion, it doesn't show on my face , it's too sheer for my taste ^_^

    Have a nice day girl, you look sultry and sexy in this FOTD BTW ^_^

  17. I LOVE tweezerman tweezers! I honestly can't live without them, and nothing compares. They're really worth the money.

    My only problem is that they keep on releasing them with new designs and I want them all!!

    If your hair has been drying out/frizzy/etc. maybe you should try using leave in conditioner, or better yet a hydrating hair mask. :)

  23. Hey, where do you find Tweezermans in India? Specifically, in Delhi?

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
