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.

Hello everyone:)
I apologize for not posting anything these last few weeks,but we were really busy with family and studies and time sort of got away from us ;)
The weather is changing in Karachi (finally) .Its not winter yet(but it is very temperate weather that we are experiencing these last few weeks) .I love this time of the year.Being from Quetta(where winter is a whole season,unlike the measly twenty days that we get in Karachi) i have a very fond place in my heart for cold , wintery days:) but as you all know every season brings with it its own set of challenges for your skin and over all beauty regimen.Chapped and dry lips have always been a pet peeve of mine.They not only look unappealing but also feel really gross(yuck)!
