MY EVERYDAY HEROES!

6 comments

There are products which can brighten up a dull day and make the world seem so much prettier. Makeup items that I use literally everyday and they never fail me. These are the everyday heroes, and the three items you can see in the picture above have been mine this past summer. This post was supposed to go up in September when Summer was still here but since my laptop has been having non-ending issues, I have not been able to blog at all.

LOREAL HAIR SPA DAY AT MINT BEAUTY SOLUTIONS

0 comments

I've been a regular at the routine Spas but when I got an invitation to the L'Oreal Hair Spa at the Mint Beauty Solutions I just had to attend. It was on September 24, 2014 and perfect timing too because I had my hair color treated a few days prior. So I booked my appointment and headed over to Mint to my first ever Hair Spa experience.

PBBC SECRET SWAP 2014!

5 comments

 
This post is awfully late, I was supposed to blog about our Pakistani Beauty Bloggers Community secret swap 3 months ago when it took place but as soon as the swap took place, the summer vacations started and I had to leave on a holiday myself, in between all that somewhere this post just got out of sight in the drafts. So anyways, like the past two years this year too the secret swap was a fun filled activity for us. You can read about the previous swaps here.

BENEFIT HOOLA BRONZER [REVIEW]

6 comments


I've never been much of a bronzer girl up until recently. When I discovered that my face really does benefit from some artfully done contouring, my interest in bronzers and contours kits developed. When I got the Bronze of Champion kit by Benefit last year, Hoola bronzer was included in that so I got to try it out.

ESSIE BLOGGERS SPA AND MINT BEAUTY SOLUTIONS!

5 comments

 
Who doesn't like pampering treatments and 'Me time' especially when you're a mother there is no ME TIME ever, which is why when I get an occasional chance like this I know better then to let it go haha. So this time I was invited to the Essie Bloggers Spa at the Mint Beauty Solutions salon in Clifton Karachi on August 27th and I was asked to book myself an appointment for whenever I wanted throughout the day.

Forever on a hunt for the 100 watt complexion I couldn't resist adding the Mary-Lou Manizer to my collection when the black friday sales began last year. I've been using it a lot and I think it's finally time for a review.

Empties!

MY MOST-USED EYE BRUSHES!

4 comments

 
I'd never been a brush user when it came to makeup, I worked with my fingers and the regular sponge applicators that come inside palettes and thought all was well, until I got myself a few brushes to try thanks to all the gorgeous makeup Youtubers I stalked.

MAC MELBA BLUSH [Review]

4 comments

This particular blush is responsible for my undying love for matte blushes. I had not planned on buying this; it was completely unexpected when I saw that it was instock on one of my favorite online seller's page and I couldn't resist giving it a try. After a thorough inner debate I gave in and bought it; my first MAC blush.

I'd read about the Topshop products on various blogs and as usual the lipsticks made it to my wishlist. A dear friend in UK was sending some lovely things and asked if I wanted anything in particular.

APRIL FAVORITES!

Hey girls! I trust you have been well, another month has flown away, seriously I feel within a week the entire week flashes by! (if that makes any sense) Atleast I am a bit regular as far as the monthly favorites go, maybe because it requires taking just a single picture haha.

CLEANING YOUR BEAUTY TOOLS!

0 comments

 
How often do you wash your make-up brushes, sponges and other applicators? I’d suggest twice a week if you use make-up daily or regularly on alternate days. If you’re very lazy then a deep clean once a month at least is highly recommended. Grubby makeup brushes can give you problematic skin.

With the trend of online retailing on the rise, shopping for clothes online is becoming highly popular. The main concern women face in this arena is that they are not really aware of which way to go while they go about this task. Nearly every brand of every kind of product has established its name on the online forum and due to this people feel empowered as they can now have any sort of product from any corner of the world at their doorstep.

ROCK A NUDE LIP!

0 comments

 

Nude lips to the likes of Kim Kadarshian and JLo have created waves in the make-up world. Nude lips paired with sultry, smoky eyes gives a dramatic evening look that’s easier to pull off than a loud bold lip. But only when done properly otherwise nude lips can leave you looking washed out and more like a corpse. Its important to choose the right lipstick for balancing your skin tone and to avoid looking to pale.

Junaid Jamshed launches at Daraz.pk!

0 comments


The summer is approaching and with that lawn frenzy starts. In an attempt to beat the heat and look effortlessly chic we see the lawn shops and exhibitions crowded with women and I don't know about you but I'd rather go without the latest lawn prints from the collections then needlessly get jostled by a throng of eager women. But guess what?! seemed like my prayers just got answered when I saw Junaid Jamshed along with some other clothing labels launched at Daraz.pk! If you've been reading my blog you would know that I've shopped from them and loved the timely and convenient shopping experience I had.

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Unapologetic [Review]

10 comments

 
In my opinion Revlon is the clear winner in coming up with great lip crayon variations. As always I was first drawn towards these because of the cute packaging so I decided to try them out. I ordered a matte balm and one lacquer balm but unfortunately something went wrong with my order and I received this matte balm in Unapologetic only, my luck!

I'm one of those people who always leave house in a hurry, no matter how well ahead I plan out everything I have a tendency to forget important stuff at last minute and I realize it the moment I'm seated in the car and on the way! One solution that I've found for this crazy situation is keeping my makeup bag stocked up for any last minute touch ups!

Maybelline Babylips Launch Event and Bloggers Winter Meetup!

7 comments


You all are already familiar with Maybelline Babylips lipbalm, it's been in the market for quite a while now, here in Pakistan however it wasn't available in the market easily, just a single shade could be found in some super stores until it was officially launched in an exclusive press meet at The Pink Cadillac Café in Karachi a couple of weeks back and I got to attend the event as it was also the bloggers Winter Meetup!

Accessories Love: Statement Watch and Ring from RoseGal.com

7 comments


I'm a big fan of the oversize watch trend, especially an oversize gold watch, it can add sparkle to an understated look/outfit without seeming over the top. I have quite a collection of these watches now that I would share with you guys sometime soon but I wanted black since it's the most practical for me and it goes with absolutely anything I wear so I'd been searching for one for over a year now. Imagine my delight when I received a Miler black oversize Quartz watch in my mail from RoseGal.com!

Blog Sale!

0 comments


Hey everyone! Hope all of you are well and the new year's been treating everybody really well so far.
I've been on a holiday myself and just returned. Before any other posts I have a quick update on a little blog sale I'm having on my facebook fanpage. I really needed to get rid of some makeup stuff which I don't use at all, better that somebody else use it then it gets wasted at the bottom of my stash.
