Product Review & Giveaway: Khuraira Cosmetics

Need I say I am so happy to finally write this post. It has been so long coming and iv been so eager to get it going.

So, a couple of weeks ago I received a package from Mrs. Khuraira Musa, founder of Khuraira Cosmetics. Check out the face book page here

Here is a picture of my package

The Age-control dark circle primer. This has a reddish colour to it looks strange but is meant to be used under a concealer. it reminds of the MUD deep brown corrector that is either mixed with foundation or applied to dark patches on the face before foundation is applied.

Invisible Finishing powder

I must first say that no-one is willing to wean me off my love for red and black as I have been receiving products in black and red packaging Nyah-Nyah I love them all.

Pros
- Packaging is a huge plus for Khuraira.
- Innovation. I absolutely love the idea of the dark circle primer (and it works as you will see in the 1923 makeover where Khuraira products were used)
- The consistency of the concealers is creamy. This means that a little goes a long way and thus there is no need to use a lot of the product.

Cons
- The product labels were poorly done e.g. a closer look at the l/s labels will tell you that not only are they different (consistency is key), they are also poorly done. The same goes for the l/g labels too.
- The Invisible powder has a chalky feel after use. Careful control is needed in order not to waste this product during use.

Overall, my favourite products are the concealers/primer, lip sticks and the mascara (it has a very small wand which is good for separating the lashes and evenly spreading the product. I absolutely love it).  I would recommend these products for professional use definitely and of course the l/s, l/g and mascara can be used by anybody who loves makeup.

Now for the part we have all been waiting for…… the giveaway. There are 3 items for makeup artists and 3 items for a non-makeup artist. Here are pictures of the giveaway items
