Color Studio Professional Pure Matt Lipstick in "Dreamer" ( Review and Swatch )

Salam and Happy new year  !
Last month I stopped by the Color Studio display at the mall and had a look at their lipsticks.After swatching a bunch I ended up buying this coral coloured one .

I haven't used very many products from this brand .During my college days I was in LOVE with their nail polishes . Borderline obsessed :D . Earlier this year I purchased their Kohl Addict Kajal in the shade Black and I was very impressed with the overall quality.

Innisfree Perfect UV Protection Cream SPF50+ PA++++ Review

I've always been really bad at protecting my skin from the sun , infact for most of my life I never used any product for this purpose .  Only a few years ago I incorporated sun block in my skincare routine and the first ever one I bought was from Neutrogena which I stuck by for quite sometime until very recently when I got into K beauty products and came across this one by Innisfree .

Hair Accessories

Today's post is all about hair accessories and the  different ones you can use to make a very basic , ordinary looking hairstyle look really glam .I'm some one that doesn't like using a lot of heat on my hair so most of the time I rely on my usual braids and buns when I have to go on an event .  Hair accessories are a great way to amp up your hair style and that too for very cheap . In this post I'll be sharing all of my  accessories and how I use them .

Innisfree Green tea balancing cream - Review

Recently I've switched to Korean skincare products and now almost all of the skincare products I use are from Korean brands . I've already reviewed  a few on here but one such product I've really been enjoying using these days  is  the Innisfree Green tea balancing cream .

Details :
  • This cream comes in a light green plastic  jar . 
  • It contains 50 ml of product . 
  • The packaging is pretty  sturdy .
  • For normal to combination skin . 
  • Free from Parabens.

Rimmel London Kate Sculpting & Highlighting Kit - 003 Golden Bronze (Review & Swatches)

This kit comes with a highlighter , contour and blush and the shade that I got it in is "003 Golden Bronze" .  The packaging is nice and sturdy and very travel friendly . I like the over-all look of the product with the shape  and the gold label but it also can get finger prints on it and look a little messy.  It's pretty compact and the fact that it is an all-in-one highlight , contour and blush kit was what compelled me to give it a try .

Innisfree Eco Fruit Tint - Review and swatches

So I've been meaning to try some lip tints for the longest time because of all the buzz around them . Recently I got these 2  Innisfree lip tints to use in the shades Cherry and Orange .
The way I use them is I either use the applicator to apply all over the lips and let it set , if  I want super pigmented results OR I will use the applicator to dab a little bit on the lips and spread it out with my finger tips if I want  it to look really natural . I don't do the gradient thing that people do with these lip balms because it just doesn't look good on me .

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Toner

I have always made it a point to include a toner in my skin care routine.But the results have been sort of borderline at best. All the toners that i have been able to try out have been from the western brands (with loads of alcohol) and there was a time i stopped using them completely , simply because they were drying my combination skin to an extent that it started to flake .Not a good look when you have to contend with acne as well.
I got a sample of this toner with my first innisfree purchase and decided to give it a try.

Aloe Vera gel in Pakistan

Aloe vera gel is a staple of my skin care routine and that has been the case for a while now. I think everyone by now knows about the benefits of aloe for skin (face and body) .
Aloe gel comes from aloe vera plant, mostly used to soothe burns and sun damage and as an antiseptic for superficial wounds.

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask - Review

This mask is one of those products that i have been coveting from afar for a very long time , with no way to get my hands on it ( as innisfree is not available in Pakistan).Well .... long story short , dad's trip to Malaysia provided me with the opportunity to get my hands on a few products from the brand , including this much anticipated clay mask.

Lemon power

Winter weather brings with it dry flaky skin and rough hands , feet.Even as a teenager i never had as much issue with skin care in summer as i had in winter.All of my skin care regimen suddenly stopped doing its job and i never knew how to handle this problem.Until i discovered the power of this natural jewel.

Its finally winter in Karachi.We've had the first rainfall of the season and the customary sweaters and shawls and khaddar collections are out in full bloom.So i decided it was time for a shoe haul.

Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 instant Soothing serum

When i tried the Olay total effects cream last year i got a sample size of this serum along with it.I tried it and was pretty impressed with the results.But for some reason i never got around to buying the full sized product till now.

This is supposed to be anti aging instant smoothing serum.I use it under my night cream / moisturizer.The plastic pump bottle contains 50 ml of product , which theoretically should last up to a month with daily use.

Eid ul Azha 2014

 A belated Eid Mubarak to all . This Eid post is slightly late but better late than never right? ;-) So Like always Allah blessed us with a very fun celebration this time around as well  ,  and it became extra special because we welcomed our niece into the world as well & on chand raat no less ;-) The neighborhood kids had a blast parading their qurbanis from one end of the street to the other.For a while there the whole street looked like a makeshift zoo.

Avon Advance Techniques Moroccan oil Leave in Treatment

Quite a few ladies on Facebook are selling Avon products . So if you are in to the scene of buying beauty products from Facebook than the brand wont be a stranger to you.

I got this product mainly because i wanted to give something with Moroccan oil as an ingredient a try.

A trip to the famous Sunday Bazar

I have lived a good portion of my adult life in the beautiful city of Karachi.This city has a lot to offer in terms of entertainment.Parks , shopping malls , cinemas, restaurants , and of course the amazing coastline . But to me the most unique thing about Karachi are its eclectic weekend bazaars that sprout up around different parts of the city on Saturday and Sunday.The best known of these is the Sunday market in DHA.
It has everything that a person can desire , from the mundane (fruits , veggies , grocery items ) to the exotic (antiques , jewellery , electronics). Shoes , bags , scarves , clothes you name it .It is a bargain hunters paradise.The only thing i wouldn't advise buying is the makeup.Its all FAKE.If you are from Karachi and have never visited than you are missing a real treat and if you are a visitor , don't miss a trip here for anything

Pink is the name of the game :-)

Summer is the time for new beginnings , of balmy weather and soft hues.Karachi (the love of my life) sort of over compensates for the weather every year and sometimes "balmy" gets down right unpleasant.Not many colors can pull of cool and calm , when the weather is anything but.Unless its a shade of pink.Here we share a few pinks from our humble collection , which we are totally in love with :-)

Nair Wax Strips

When it comes to this kind of strips , the market is flooded with multiple brands.In all shapes & sizes and with varying prices.I recently bought a pack of the ones from Nair and after using them a few times i have come to the conclusion that using these pre made wax strips is sort of hit and miss .

Boots essential cucumber eye gel

This is another eye gel that we have been trying for the last few weeks.It is a pretty straight forward product in my opinion so i think i have got the hang of what it is all about even though i still have to finish the whole tube.
