Mini Haul from “faces Cosmetics”
This Saturday I went to Pune central and still did not pick up Color Sensational lipsticks by Maybelline although I am eyeing two or three shades. Instead I picked up some stuff from a brand called faces which has products on hair, nail, foot, face, bath and body. Most of them are tools and I love to pick up such stuff. The display was good and so here is what I picked.
4 Way Bail Buffer price Rs 65:
The buffer has the first step to remove the layer of dead cells form the nail surface. It removes a powder sort of from the nail kind of like scrubbing the nail. I found it pretty helpful to remove the yellow and mattifying the nail surface. Second step, the pink part is to buff the nails before the final step of shining them up. The third step the grey part is to make ur nails dazzle with natural shine. The black part is plain emery to shape nails. the step with the grey part makes a squeaky sound when rubbed on the nail surface. It was incredible to see the sort of healthy shine this product gave to my nails. it was good enough and may be better than my other nail buffers by street wear (got free with shopping) and other general non brand buffer. must have if u want to skip nail paints. (compared with other buffers)

Flat Tweezer:Price Rs 55
I use tweezers for stray hair on eye brows and have a couple of others too apart from this. I just feel they lose their sharpness after a while. Some of them may be so sharp as to hurt the skin. but this one is amazing. It has a small flat tip which picks up small hair as well and does not feel sharp on the skin. its an amazing product for 55 rs . I may pick up more of these in case I lose this. The other ones in the pics for comparison are one I picked up from lifestyle and the other from UK and is made in Pakistan. The UK one hurts the skin like crazy and the lifestyle one is good but has lost sharpness over time.(compared with others)

Nail shiner: Rs 85
Now this product bummed me as the plastic had gotten stuck to one side of the shiner and it stripped off the paper from the shiner in my attempt to remove it(will call customer care about the packaging). It also comes with a long orange wood stick to push back cuticles and to clean underneath nails from the pointed side of the stick, it very long and better in quality when compared to my other orange stick I picked up from a beauty supply store.
Now about the shiner. The white side of the shiner when used on bare nails makes a squeaky sound, first off I doubted what it would do but when I finished, it made my nails dazzle like LIQIUD! I could not believe those were my nails shining like liquid. The shine will not last of course. amazing product for glossing up nails.(compared with Vega nail shiner and orange wood stick compared with another)
It’s a great product to keep irritating hair away from face when u want specially when u are doing ur make up. These are in black and brown color. It holds the hair very well and look pretty when worn. Wear it on the side of the hair or lift the centre of the hair up from the front with these. The quality of plastic is above average. How brittle they are, I am yet to see.

Dual pencil sharpener price Rs 80:
Aow the last thing is a very cute looking make up pencil sharpener. Although I have lakme, oriflame and Avon sharpeners, I loved this one for the round shape and for the fact that it will collect all the shavings inside well. It is very sharp and it gives a perfect rounded edge to the pencils and I find it easy to clean. Open the sides and tap tap, and all the dirt goes off. Should last me for while.
