CLAZONA BEAUTY – 24 HOUR MATTE LIPGLOSS (Mini Review and Swatches)

Hello there my beauties. I hope everyone is at the best of their health smile emoticon I am here with another pick it or shelf it mini review for the Clazona – 24 hour matte lipglosses. Though i am late. Few Pakistani bloggers have already posted reviews about this brand and product, which has been creating waves in the market these days, but it i just could not keep myself away from it. Thanks to SherryK. From The Other Side Of The Mirror who dug this gem out of a local brand wink emoticon

Clazona being a Pakistani brand, that also manufactures on a local level only, has come up with a matte formula lip gloss/lipstick which is quite similar to the NYX SMLP and i am being very serious when j say that. If you have the SMLP, you can do the comparison and you shall see that the formula is almost the same. It has a moose like texture and applies like a cream on the lips and sets to a dry finish. ( since I have both so I have done my homework of comparison ).

About Clazona Beauty:

The brand itself is not new to the market. Previously it was known as clarity and later it re-launched with the name of clazona beauty. It has a wide variety of cosmetics which includes face powder, lipsticks, eyelashes and nail polishes. (This was the maximum information I could get from the internet about the company/brand).

Ingredients:

Unfortunately, i couldn’t find much about the ingredient list.

Claims:

As the name states it is a 24 hour matte lipgloss.

Packaging:

Packaging of this lipgloss is just like any other standard lip gloss. It comes in a transparent plastic tube with a black unscrew to open the cap which is attached to the applicator. The applicator is good in terms of it’s deposits of the product on the lips and it’s not too long so the product can be distributed evenly on the lips as well. The tube has the shade numbers written on a sticker at the bottom and has “24 hours long lasting matte finish lipgloss enriched with vitamin E, I, A and C” printed vertically.

Texture:

The formula applies as a creamy mousse and sets completely matte. The texture though is creamy but not runny at all. You can apply one coat on the lips, let it set and then apply another layer. You need to give atleast 2-3 mins to let the lipgloss set.

Experience with the Clazona 24 hours matte lip-gloss:

I found the product upto the mark. A thumbs up from me for the formula, has long lasting power and pigmentation. It will not give you exactly 24 hours of long lasting product on your lips but can stay upto 5-6 hours without eating or drinking. It has a sweet hint of smell but goes away once applied. It emphasis on the fine lines of the lips as it’s a matte lip-gloss and dries to a matte finish. You will have to exfoliate your lips and apply a balm underneath to work with this.

The main concern which I have is with the packaging and distribution. Since it is easily available over the counter so, I noticed that the shop keeper allows you to swatch and check the colors before purchasing so the tubes are open and not kept fresh. Also, they don’t give out a fresh packed piece because it might come to them without any packaging what so ever (The company should look into this in the long run). Other then this packaging is important to know details like ingredients and product weight etc so i personally took it as a backdrop which might stop me from purchasing it. However, to conclude, the product itself is a good bargain for the price. You cannot complain.

SUAVE PROFESSIONALS MOROCCAN INFUSION SHINE SHAMPOO WITH MOROCCAN ARGAN OIL

OMG OMG OMG !! Seriously, to pick this shiny golden bottle of Suave professional Moroccan infusion line, was the best decision ever. Literally, my eyes only caught sight of the Save Professionals and Moroccan Argan Oil. These two things urged me to grab this bottle and i am so glad that i did so. You can relate to how over crowded Imtiaz Superstore can be and to the annoy-ness their sales people posses, as they have no information about the brands available neither about what range of oil will cater which kind of hair. Since Me and my mother were there for grocery shopping so i was quite short on time to catch up with my ‘to buy list’. At the back of my mind I knew I had to buy the suave shampoo, as last month i already experienced with the suave professional Sleek Shampoo. So, I just looked over the aisle of shampoos for where suave range was lying and this shiny golden bottle with those magical words ‘ Moroccan Argan Oil and Professionals’ written over it caught my eye. Without a second thought, I went on and grabbed it so i can try it this month and see the result.
So without further delaying lets just jump onto the product itself.

Ingredients:

What this Shampoo Claims:

  • Noticeable shine
  • Long lasting conditioning
  • Luxurious fragrance

Packaging: This comes in a standard suave bottle with 12.6 fl. oz. (373 ml) product inside and is of golden color with the products name written in front and other information at the back. It has a push to open and press to close lid from where the product actually comes out. SV6

Texture: The texture of the shampoo is creamy and looks very glossy. It creates a beautiful lather with less water and a little of it goes a long way.

My Experience with Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion with Moroccan Argan Oil Shine Shampoo
Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Shine Shampoo has been recommendable. It is so far the best shampoo i have picked up. I like to stick to shampoos and if one suits my hair and give me the shine and texture i need, i would just grab on to it till i get the urge to try a new product. Before the Moroccan infusion line i tried another line of Suave. It was my first ever purchase of Suave that time and i equally loved it. The Moroccan infusion line hands down proves whatever it claims *applause* 😀 yes my beauties you heard me correctly. This product gives you that volume , shine and texture that your hair lacks. I have wavy hair (check picture of my hair here) and in this dry weather of Karachi it looses all the moisture making my hair looks dry and dull. I tend to compare them with desert bushes at times *sigh* 😦
After using this shampoo, my hair have become softer, shinier and the results can be seen right after the very first wash. Also, it smells so tropical and fresh ( i LOVE {here i am actually emphasizing on love} the smell of Moroccan Argan Oil). Once you smell it, you feel feel refreshed and you wont stop smelling your hair after that trust me on this one 😛 I don’t have to use any type of conditioner after using this shampoo, as i was testing it on its own.
SV2
For Normal to Dry Hair
So my final verdict on this product is a double THUMBS UP !! Don’t just sit there and read. Run out and buy it,for the price and result it shows this is a great pick. So this time its a PICK IT you guys like it wasn’t obvious lol. Let me know in the comments below if you have used Suave products or this Moroccan Infusion in particular.
Until next time beauties,
Tc of yourself and your hair 🙂

Garnier Fructis Goodbye Damage Strengthening Hair Oil – Mini Review

Garnier Fructis Goodbye Damage Strengthening Hair Oil – Mini Review

IMAG3GARNIER FRUCTIS GOODBYE DAMAGE STRENGTHENING HAIR OIL 

Product Description: A unique blend enriched with 3 oils – coconut + almond + olive. On the inside: nourishes your scalp and hair, makes it soft and smooth. On the outside: oil protects the hair fiber and makes your hair softer, shiny and manageable.

Ingredients: Mineral oil, rapeseed oil, olive fruit oil, coconut oil, wheat germ oil, salicylic acid, limonene, benzyl salicylate, benzyl alcohol, linalool, geraniol, bht, citral, citronellol, sweet almond oil, coumarin, glyceryl linoleate, glyceryl oleate, glyceryl linolenate, fragrance.

What this hair oil claims: The unique blend of almond, coconut and olive oil is the perfect recipe for daily care of your hair. The oil nourishes your scalp and hair from root to tip giving you softer, smoother, healthy and manageable hair. Its light texture washes off easily without any trace of stickiness.

Packaging- The hair oil comes in the goodbye damage signature orange plastic bottle with a screw cap.

Texture- The hair oil is clear and feels very light and is totally non-sticky. It gets absorbed to my hair very well and doesn’t get rubbed off on the pillowcase.

Source of above information is purely from the internet 🙂 Now lets hope to my experience and know whether we should pick it or shelf it !!

IMAG1 IMAG2 My Experience with Garnier Fructis Goodbye Damage Strengthening Hair Oil:

First of all what mainly attracted me was the packaging of the product , an orange plastic bottle claiming to have a blend of 3 different oils sitting on the shelf tempting me to pick it up and put in it my cart which it succeeded in. Now why someone wouldn’t want to try it? In this hectic routine that we have , we barely get time to pamper our hair with oil and getting 3 oils in one is a good treat. The bottle is transparent so you can see the amount of oil being consumed, another good thing about the packaging is that the small hole on the bottle is good to pour out the oil without any spill or leakage (which is a plus plus) The oil itself is of no color and smells really good which i personally like , it is non- greasy and is very light on the hair once applied. It does not transfer on your pillow, so you can apply it and leave it overnight.

Now these were the pros of this oil , what my main concern for buying this oil was the benefit it shows on my hair as it states to be Goodbye Damage Strengthening hair oil. It totally failed on that part because i was having hair fall when i bought this and it did not repair that plus i didn’t see any noticeable change in my hair while i was using it. The concept and idea of bringing 3 oils in one is great they should work on it and improve it more so that it really gives that WOW factor to the product.

Price: Rs. 240 for 200 ml

So if you’ ask me whether il buy this product again or not. My answer will be NO 🙂 only because this didn’t do wonders for my hair like i imagined it would do as being a combo of 3 oils.

Let me know in the comments below if you have tried this product or want to try it out for yourself 🙂 !!

Until next time lovelies,

Keep shining on
