Quick Tip: How To Store Your Kabuki Brushes (The Cheap Way)


Most kabuki brushes come packaged in those transparent sharp-edged boxes, which in time look old and get discolored. I live in a dusty area, so it makes me cringe every time I even think about leaving my brushes out in the open.

So, one day I was dusting and arranging my vanity and I just dropped my kabukis into this empty Johnson's Buds container without thinking....




I thought it was one of the smartest things I ever did LOL ;D



I took them like this while travelling too.

Of course it would look much flaunt-worthy in a cute & girly (pink?) container. Yes, I have to get me some of those.
For now, this will do ;)

Bourjois Rose Exclusif Lipgloss Review, Swatch & Color Transformation Photos


Bourjois Rose Exclusif is a transparent lipgloss that adapts to the pH of your lips, and transforms into your very own unique personalised pink.

The lipgloss is enriched with pH reactive pigments, which will self-adjust into a bespoke pink to suit your skin tone.

According to Bourjois, it is good for your lips because it has Anti-oxidant Vitamin E and C, and 8 hr moisture.

After 15 mins



Over 1 hour later

As you can see, it does live up to its claims. However, I would not urge anybody to run to the stores to grab it. Unless, of course, you're dying to find out what "your pink" looks like ;)
The shade didn't get any deeper than a light fuchsia pink on my lips.

I think it's a pretty good lipgloss because:
  • Non-tacky 
  • Long lasting 
  • Very moisturizing and lips don't feel dry afterwards
  • Glossy & makes lips look plumper
  • Easy-to-use brush applicator
  • Non-gritty coz there's no shimmer
  • Unnoticeable fragrance
I honestly can't find fault with it. It's gimmicky, it turns into my favorite color, and it's Bourjois! =)


*Available in all Bourjois counters across Delhi/NCR. I got this from Kunchal's for Rs.525.
