DURALINE by INGLOT

Hi Y'all! Welcome to my Blog. So today I have a special something to share with you. I'll be discussing the ever famous Duraline by Inglot.

I'm telling you all that this is a LIFE-SAVER. And why is that? Because this potion of 9 ml/0.30 oz with just a drop can enhance, fix and prolong your makeup/makeup products. The consistency is thick and it's a clear liquid. To be more specific, here is what it says on the packaging:

A drop of your Duraline mixed with a makeup product of your choice:


  • creates a liquid waterproof product 
  • improves application 
  • prolong life of makeup 
  • enhances the colors 


The bottle is a clear glass and comes with its own black dropper which is a win-win for us as it's a cap and a dropper all in one so you don't have to go through the hassle of uncapping and arranging a separate tool or dropper to do the deed.

My experience with Duraline has been pretty satisfactory. Below I have attached images and videos of the makeup products I have used this magic potion on.



Here as you can see that my ArtistInk gelliner by Luscious Cosmetics was pretty much dry.


In order to bring it back to its former glory, I added just a drop of Duraline and mixed it. Not only it smoothened out the gelliner but brought back its deep, dark pigment.

Next I used Duraline to fix my Radiance Ethereal Glow Blush by Masaraat Misbah. It had completely crumbled and to fix it I had to use comparatively more drops than the gelliner.
                
                  Beauty meme

 Here is a picture and a video for your viewing.
Fixing the Blush

BEFORE and AFTER

You can also use Duraline to turn your Eyeshadows into eyeliners. Yes, you read that right! Surprising isn't it. You just have to add a drop to your favorite eyeshadow and you're ready with the liner of the day. In the picture below I used Duraline to create a brown liner as I don't own one, from my Morphe 35W Palette.

Also my Kryolan Paint Stick had run dry because of the dry weather and for coverage, I added a drop of Duraline to it to make it easy to spread as is visible in the above image.

So ladies these were the four ways that I tested Duraline on my makeup products. If your mascara is running dry, you can add a drop or depending upon the state of mascara,drops, to it as well.

Hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did while experimenting and compiling. Until next time.

Dil ki Qasam

Hello people!

Welcome to my blog again!

This post will be a bit different.

You know how there are days when you feel down and out, and are too hard on yourself? You think you are up to no good? Always questioning yourself? Yeah, sounds familiar, right?

                   
Well, I was watching this song on t.v., midway into it, I saw Noori guys running on the beach with Sara haider. I was like what is this. I increased the volume, they were singing ' hum dunya badal dein gay' and 'roti yaadon ko bhulain gay hum'.

                 


                  

That just did it for me!

The song was Dil ki Qasam, by Noori and Sara Haider for Miss Veet Pakistan.

It just radiated positive vibes! I found it to be motivational!
                   


The song is composed by Shuja Haider and Shani, video by Aleena Naghman.

Good song, good video!
Here is the link for the full song

Words that stuck by - "Pathetic Work"


I was 11 years old when I received this comment on my artwork. Having little clue as to what the word meant and how it will stick with me in the coming years, I went home and asked my sister what the word meant. My family was appalled at the remark and explained it very nicely that my artwork was not appreciated by my teacher and that it’s okay if she did not like it, don’t feel disheartened by the remark. The assignment was basically to fold glaze paper and cut out a design (Yes, I remember the details). I chose a pink sheet, folded it and started to cut it out. What turned out was some sort of a lizard on four sides of the sheet. I tried a couple of more times but none of the designs came out with a pattern. The next day I handed over my artwork and voila, “PATHETIC WORK” graced my sketch-book.

11 years is a very impressionable age, an age where you are still in between being a child and adolescent. You look up to your parents, family, teachers to guide you, to nurture you, be a role model for you. There is already enough competition within the class who does what best, who is the highest achiever, the top three of the class and so on and so forth. And when a child receives such a remark and your fellow receives “EXCELLENT WORK”, well ma’am that was harsh. You could have explained it before remarking in such terms, a mere “re-do” or “Warda, this is not right” or “show me how you folded the sheet” would have sufficed it.
It has been 15 years and all of a sudden this memory pops up and I felt something akin to helplessness and wanted to write about it. It has become a running joke between my siblings and I and we laugh about it because even though the term stayed over the years, I know that I am talented. One good word, one bad word is all it takes to create a memory, to put that seed of self-doubt in your mind. In my case, I had my family with me who encouraged me instead. My point is that when you are in a position of guidance/ imparting knowledge/ teaching, choose your words and actions wisely. To the young teachers and seasoned ones; yes students create havoc in class, some are rowdy some are quiet, some extroverts and some introverts, some bookworms, some life of the class, some high achievers, some average students, be patient with them? Be stern but not aggressive? Motivate not demean? Words hold meaning and they stick by you. Be extra careful with younger students when voicing out opinions and simply while writing remarks.

More thoughts for some other time.

Regards,

Warda.
