L'Oreal Color Riche Lipstick in "845 TAWNY"

My favorite make up look is always a dark eye and nude lips so i am always on the look out for good nude lipsticks.L'oreal and Revlon are my go to brands when it comes to nude colors.The "color Riche " line by L'oreal is really great.Not only are the lipsticks affordable,creamy,soft but they also bear well with the weather in Karachi,travel and general abuses of regular usage
I recently purchased this color.Its called "Tawny", no.845At first glance it appears to be a brownish nude color but when you swatch it, the color is much less pigmented and is sort of a light pinkish brown.Either way i really like to wear it on a daily basis.It doesn't wash out my lips (which can happen with some nude colors). It can also be worn over or under other colors for a more pigmented look.
If you are going to buy this from a Mall ,L'oreal counter or another such place than you might have to pay 600 to 800 Rs (just a guess,as i haven't confirmed).I got this from a local cosmetic counter,the shop owner had about 10-12 colors and was selling them for 450/piece.I got it for Rs 400.

NOTD Color studio pro nail polish in "electrique"

I have found my favorite blue for this season :) Thanks to color studio professionals.Its bright ,its shimmery and its all you need to brighten up your manicure.I got this from the color studio kiosk @ Dolmen Mall Tariq Road.They have added some beautiful new colors to their collection since the last time i was there.I paid Rs 250 for this.Worth every penny in my opinion.The polish is just the right consistency ,the brush is not bad either.But as this is a bright color i would warn you not to use it without a base coat or there is a good chance that you'll end up with yellow nails.
The girl at the counter told me that they are having a promotion that if you buy 3 nail polishes than you'll get a lip gloss for free.And the lip glosses from color studio cost around Rs 300+ (if i am  not mistaken). I am not sure if this offer is exclusive to Dolmen Mall Tariq Road or applicable every where.So if anyone is interested :)

This is one of those products that is a "must have" in any make up kit.I have been trying to get my hands on this since the first time i read about jumbo eye pencils.Even though these only cost about 4.50$ a piece on the nyx website and many other online sites have them on sale, they still cost anywhere from 600 - 800 Rs if you buy them in Pakistan.My reasoning behind getting this particular color was that i wanted to get the most versatile one of the lot.These pencils are available in a multitude of colors but in my mind the ones that everyone should own are "milk" and "black bean.
