Review - Turn-Up The Music, Mr. DJ Is A Cheerful Track






.

Qurram Hussain's new cheerful track Turn-Up The Music Mr. DJ, featuring Ayesha Omer and dance choreographer Hasan Rizvi, is the second song from season 2 by Cornetto Pop Rock. The music video has been directed by film maker Wajahat Rauf and the choreography is done by Wahab Shah.

Turn up the Music Mr. DJ is a modern party song that will make everybody dance. It is perfectly relatable to the everyday life of youth. The video brings a wave of nostalgia for those who are done with college life, and reminds them of the good old days. 

The music video presents Ayesha Omar and Hasan Rizvi, as a lively couple who had an argument, while Qurram, being a mutual friend sings to bring them together.

 

Qurram commented on his experience of Cornetto Pop Rock season 2, “The whole process for this song was amazing and so much fun. From producing the song to singing it and shooting the video – there was so much energy in every step. It was great to work with Ayesha and Hasan – they both brought life to the video through their performances.”

Hasan said, “This is the second time I have worked with Wajahat on a song and I must say he is brilliant at his job. Working with another choreographer was an amazing experience too. I believe what made the whole process more amazing was the song itself. Qurram sang it so well! I’m playing it on repeat since I first listened to it.” 

Ayesha said, “My experience was really good. It was the first time I danced since I had the accident that injured my right shoulder bone, so I was really scared. But Wahab made sure none of my steps were stressful on my right shoulder. Both Hasan and Q made the shoot so fun, it was awesome. Also the whole team especially Wajahat deserves applause for making sure the shoot happens smoothly and on time.”

Review - Olivia Kajal Is For Everyone!






.

The thinly brushed eye liner application needs a lot of perfection to draw smooth and neatly shaped eye-liners. Even after so many practices most of us end up with an irregular line that leads to doing the whole eye makeup again.

So, instead of creating all this mess, using a traditional kajal is the best alternative for creating a fine eye-liner style tidy line. It’s not only easy to use but also adds more glamour and dramatic look to eyes because of its dark pigmentation. Eye makeup cannot be completed without the use of a dark jet black eye-pencil, eye-liner and kajal.

We sisters have been using this black magical thing since childhood. We love to use it as an eye liner and eye pencil, it finishes our eye makeup with delicacy and accuracy. These days we are using Olivia brand’s Kajal Stick and here we are sharing our experience of Olivia Kajal with all of you.


Our Verdict

Olivia Kajal comes in a simple packaging with directions of how to use it on the backside. The bullet shaped long kajal stick is secured in a plastic body with a tightly fitted cap. 

Olivia products including this kajal are halal cosmetics and chemical free. The absence of harmful chemicals make all Olivia beauty products safe for use. The application of Olivia kajal is risk-free and it would not give you any eye irritation or teary eyes.

It gives a very dark pigmentation if applied with a touch of water. This kajal is slightly on the dry side, so if you want to draw a dark thick line, swipe it twice for your desired glamorised look. It works well as an eyeliner and eye pencil.


It is definitely not a very creamy formula and due to this it does not smudges easily, even in summers and high humidity. As Olivia’s kajal is almost smudge-free, it doesn’t go away in few hours. The staying power is around 6 to 8 hours.

It is very handy and can be carried in a small bag. School and college going young girls would love to add it in their cosmetic range. 

The price is so affordable that you will love to give it a try. It is truly budget friendly eye-makeup. We bought it from a local superstore for just Rs 50.

Availability

Olivia Kajal is easily available in all cosmetic shops, super markets and online stores.

Rating

Olivia Kajal stick is a great technique to add more classic definition to your eye-makeup. We are giving it 4.5 / 5.
