Short Review of e.l.f. Essential Duo Eye Shadow Cream: Black Licorice

I had such high hope for this shadow-duo ...perfect combo for easy smokey eyes ....cream so no fallout..but really bad pigmentation and even worse staying power :(
I just dont understand..I have thier 144 ES palette and that is quite good..even better with a primer..E.L.F is like hit or miss to me...dont think i will be buying any cream eye shadow by them ever again.

Panasonic Ionity Hair straightener review

Finally tried my new hair straightener...I dont like to straighten my hair much so waited for like 1-2 weeks till I felt like wearing my hair straight yesterday hence got to testing. Here is my short verdict

First of heat control dial so constant heat on same temperature, which wasn't a lot, even my Phillips iron in medium heat setting would heat up my hair more...anyway it is a good thing for me since i dont like to heat my hair much anyway but if you have kind of coarse hair, you'll need more heat for sure.

The most interesting features is the twin external ion nozzles i think...I have used ion irons before (again phillips one) but this works turned my hair extremely shiny in a matter of minutes.

It is also quite large so I could take a big chunk of hair (5-6 inch thick) and iron only once or twice and done. Ofcourse I wasn't looking for pin straight finish, I never do, barely  straight with volumes and little waves. The whole process took me less than 10 minutes, 5-6 I guess...

So anyway, while it is certainly more expensive than phillips (phillips was about 3.5 while this is almost 5k in Bangladeshi taka) its totally served my purposed, less heat, easy to work with a lot of hair and time saving. I also really loved the design, reminds me of dolphin somehow :p...feeling pretty much happy with the purchase.

Always wash your face after you wash off hair conditioner to prevent facial breakouts

Often, people shampoo their hair first and put on conditioner and then go about washing. scrubbing body, face etc to get the conditioner to stay on for the longest time possible. I used to do this to. Until I read the danger of it in one of the dermatology websites.

Hair Conditioner, is a super thick compound which has silicone, different kind of hair moisturizer (which may or may not be 100% oil free) plus other chemicals. It can not be totally removed only by water. This is the whole point of putting conditioner on your hair actually. Even after you wash it off very well with water, it will still be coating your hair to prevent it from damage and making it shiny, soft, etc.

Which is all good, except when you are washing your hair, some water will inevitably pass through your face. Conditioner diluted water. Just like your hair, it will also leave a residue on your skin, on your face and even on your neck and body. Now since the residue is not much, it should not create any problem for body, but for face it is a different story. Even a tiny bit of leftover residue can lead to break-outs.

So even after you are done washing your hair and everything, the conditioner residue on your face will still be there, since we already established that water alone can not remove conditioner residue completely. You will not see it, you may not even feel it, but it will be there.
