    Hi Shrilata,
    I have been a visitor of your site for quite some time in order to read reviews of products that I intend to buy and I must say,your reviews are amazing.
    I have had this problem with dark circles for a long time and use MAC orange corrector + NW35 studio finish concealer under my eyes.I was not very convinced with the tips offered by the artist at MAC.After applying the corrector and concealer,I somehow find the applied portion to have a very different shade from the rest of my face.This despite the fact that I apply the orange corrector in minimal amounts.Can you please suggest an alternative since I use them daily to hide the dark circles?(I dont use any foundation, no other makeup other than these 2 products on my face dialy)
    Also can you please suggest me a good eyebrow pencil that would give the most natural look(I have reasonably thick eyebrows but would like to use an eyebrow pencil as well).Also can you suggest any brand with good range of eyeshadows( subtle colours like light pink)? Appreciate your suggestions.Thanks.

    • Hi Sri Smile,

      I guess your shade match is wrong with the concealer. Make sure to try few different shades exactly & near your skintone for better results. Don’t believe MUA’s blindly at MAC something which i have learnt in hard way. Make sure to carry as many testers as you want to carry home wear them for few days and then decide for your shade. Also I would suggest you to go for a tinted moisturizer or a bb cream for daily use if you are not fond of heavy makeup as they keep your skin breathing and blur the minor imperfections effectively.I am not sure about the eyebrow pencils as of now. Will search and get back to you. I use a maybelline one which I got from outside India. But you can use matte brown eyeshadows to mildly fill your brows. They look very natural. For eyeshadows I would blindly suggest you Inglot with lot of finishes & shades selection. I love MAC & Bourjois too. Hope this helps

  4. For concealer try L’Oreal or Colorbar one. Even they are good.

    Thanks Shrilatha. I too have not been very satisfied with the suggestions offered by MUA and need to probably convince myself first before buying.BTW, you mentioned Inglot (I have had a horrible experience with this store last week) . I had got 3 concealers and an eyeshadow on a palette from an Inglot Store in Chennai last month(June end).The lady at the store unpacked the concealers and placed them in the palette, hence the cover for the concealers was removed and retained in the store.I used them for 2-3 weeks and out of curiosity , I removed them from the palette to see their expiry dates.To my horror, 3 are due to expire in a month.I called up the store and they have no answer.They say that they could exchange the product had I not used them.I reasoned out saying that I trusted their products to be new/having a long shelf life and started using them and I asked them if this is how they dupe/cheat customers by selling due-to-expire /old products. While I have already given a piece of my mind,I really dint know that popular brands like these dupe people.I guess I should have not permitted the lady to remove the concealer covers for the sake of putting them on the palette.The lady has turned out to be a cheat! Really Angry

    • Oh sorry to hear that Sri. Usually I check swatches online & place order with majorbrands.in for Inglot products. We don’t have a store at Hyderabad yet so never had a experience at their store!
