NYX Above and Beyond Full Coverage Concealer in Orange - Review

Droopy, dull and glum both lay surrounded in a grey cloud of Darkness
The harder they struggled to break the murk, the more it enveloped them.

Many a tiny glimmers of hope came in to break the powerful gloom! 
None could not defeat the engulfing smoke.

Then came a sudden burst of light so bright 
Rays bloomed and vanquished the murkiness!

Those two pools lit up and sparkled,
The darkness was conquered.

Those two eyes, once droopy and dull 
Bathed in bright light they shone in utter delight! 

In came the Saviour the Orange Knight!

the Balm Cabana Boy - Review

If there is one thing that theBalm is famous for, then it has to be their quirky packaging. Following closely behind would be their frequent 50% sitewide sales which are the best thing ever. So on one of these sales, I picked up Cabana Boy. This was my second purchase from the Balm. The first thing that I bought from them was the Mary Lou Manizer, which is like a duh because it is one of the best highlighters out there. Read on to find out how much I loved Cabana Boy.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Floral and Flirty - Review


Dry Shampoos are fairly less known in our country and if you want clean, oil-free hair, you need a good old shower, be it 5 times a day (LOL). But then again washing your head 5 times a day results in severe hair loss and dry hair, which no one wants also. In short, its a lose-lose situation. This is where the Batiste Dry Shampoo steps in and saves your hair! I bought the Batiste Dry Shampoo due to its immense popularity in the UK and US and because a few friends recommended it to me. Read on for a detailed review!

NYX Blush in Pinched - Review


Whoever has heard about the famous NARS Orgasm has probably heard about NYX Pinched also. It is rumoured to be Orgasm's drugstore sister although I cannot confirm whether this is true or not because I don't own NARS Orgasm. Pinched was my first purchase from NYX;read on to find out my thoughts on it.

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Sultry - Review

Hi ladies! Today I'll be reviewing a current favourite of mine: the Revlon Matte Balm in Sultry ! I absolutely love matte lipsticks because they flatter my full lips. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm stains were already very popular with beauty lovers before Revlon launched these Matte Balms. When I heard about them, I knew I must get one for myself and luckily when I placed my order, there was an offer going on these so I picked up one for myself and one for my sister.

Summertime Skincare!


With the summers at their peak and no limit to the sweating, it is extremely important to clean our skin and keep it hydrated. Moreover, summers also means more exposure to the sun, which means we need to be extra careful if we want glowing skin.

Essence Blush Up in Heat Wave - Review


Ever year, Essence releases new makeup products which includes a limited edition blush. Last year, Essence released a similar blush, but I was not much of a makeup addict back then, so I did not buy it. When I saw pictures of Blush Up on Essence's Facebook page, it was love at first sight. The size of the blush case and the blush itself looked divine and so being the blushoholic I am, I couldn't resist it.

June Favourites!

It has been quite a while since I posted my favourites but that's because I don't use new products every month, so my favorites tend to get repetitive. Now after a pretty long break here's a list of what I've been enjoying in this month!

Eye pencils are a definite must-have in my makeup stash, and when a fellow makeup addict praised the Sweet Touch Eye Pencil, I decided that I needed to have one in my makeup pouch. So last week, I finally spotted them in Enem, Liberty, Lahore and purchased it on the spot.

DIY: Washing your Makeup Brushes!

Time and time again, I have read on various forums the importance of washing your makeup brushes regularly. Before joining the blogging world, I was also the sort of person who would run the brushes under the water to wash them, not realizing that they were not getting properly cleaned. When I read about the importance of brush cleaning, I began to clean my brushes regularly and now its almost become a weekly ritual. Sometimes, I even wash them after three - five days, depending on how much I use them.

Online shopping, especially for makeup, is my latest obsession because it makes life so much easier, provides endless variety of products and you can look up the reviews for all products you want immediately. When I stumbled upon these two pages, Hash and Amor, I knew exactly what I wanted from them. These two pages are my new-found love and I love the owners of both the pages.

tarte Leave her Blushing Set of 3 Amazonian Clay Blushes - Review


Given the blushoholic that I am, its no surprise that I couldn't resist this set. tarte was a relatively new brand to me because its not very famous in our part of the world. But when I heard about these amazing beauties, I decided that they were a must have for me. I checked out the prices and a single blush costed $26 which is slightly pricey. While I was deciding while color to purchase (more like collecting money), I saw this set at the tarte website. It was love at first sight and I ordered the set immediately! Given the reviews that I had read, the expectations for these blushes were high. Read on to find out whether they fulfilled my expectations or not.

Recently, the PBBC held its first bloggers swap for the year. Each blogger was assigned a blogger to which one had a send out gifts.

After loving the Jordana blushes, I decided to try a few other products from the brand. I was browsing through Beauty Joint when I came across these eye pencils.

The Five Word Makeup Tag!

Hello Ladies! I think these days all I seem to do is read blogs and make never ending wishlists! At this moment, the highest thing on my wishlist is "that Gal" Brightening Primer by Benefit! Ah, the life of a makeup addict. So recently, I came across a lovely blog Face LDN (http://www.faceldn.com/). And I was browsing through the blog when I saw this tag. The post made such a nice read and sounded so fun, that instead of having my monthly favourites I decided to do this tag.

Daily Makeup Essentials.

No matter how much makeup I collect, there are usually a few things only that I tend to use on a daily basis. Being a university student, I like to keep my makeup limited and natural. Here's a list of things that I use and love everyday.

Jordana Powder Blush in Rose Silk - Review


My love for blushes has no end and I am always on the look out for gorgeous blushes which I can add to my collection. On one of my stalking expeditions on the makeup websites, I came across these Jordana blushes. I was very excited to see them given the price and the variety that they had. I immediately googled some reviews and they were pretty limited. So I decided to order one of these blushes. The variety was so wide that it was difficult for me to choose a single blush; but eventually I settled on Rose Silk which is a described as a dusty rose (matte), according to the Jordana website. These blushes are not very common in our part of the world and this tempted me further to try these out. Plus, the price of the blushes was very budget-friendly and I decided that it was a risk worth taking!

Essence Gel Eyeliner:Midnight in Paris - Review

Black liners are a staple in every makeup bag, whether they are in the form of a pencil, marker, kajal or in a pot to be applied with a brush. I cannot imagine walking out of home without lining my upper lash line. I am always on the look out for eyeliners which are waterproof, smudge-proof and long lasting; after all who wants panda eyes after a few hours. Read on to find out whether the Essence Gel Eyeliner had all those qualities which I want in a liner!

Sleek Blush in Sunrise - Review


Sleek blushes need no introduction. They have been raved, reviewed and LOVED by women and bloggers all over the world - I have yet to read a bad review on them. They are compared to high-end brands and a lot of bloggers have commented how similar they are to the NARS blushes, in packing as well as otherwise. I had my eye on Sleek's Blush by 3 in Lace, but just4girls was out of stock for quite a while. So on their recent sale, I decided to pick up a Sleek blush. The colors were limited (most of them being sold out), but after some thinking I ordered one in Sunrise. There were limited reviews on this one, but my expectations were high. Read on to find out whether Sleek's blush in Sunrise met my expectations or not!

The Versatile Blogger Award!

Hi ladies! Sorry for not blogging recently, I have been very busy and then over the weekend I took off to the Hills (Doonga Gali to be precise) with my friends on a university trip. While it was freezing there and I couldn't stop shivering, despite the many layers I was wearing, the trip was amazing and one of my most memorable experiences ever!

Hauling!

January is my birthday month and so I've been gifting myself with little treats that I've been lusting over. While some part of my wishlist has not been fulfilled (mostly due to lack of funds), most of it has been and I'm over the moon with the stuff I have. I literally can't stop obsessing over it and admiring everything after every 10 minutes (a little exaggeration but still :p). So I decided to share my happiness with you guys in a little haul post. Here it goes!

MUA Blushers in Bon Bon and Marshmallow - Review


When I first discovered just4girls, the first order I placed was The Makeup Academy's blush in Bon Bon. And I fell in love with it (and its price tag). After that, I ordered another MUA Blush in Marshmallow. Both the blushes have made it to my favourite blushes (not that I have a list of favourite blushes because blushes are like my favouritest cosmetic item). But still, they are definitely amongst the best blushes that I have purchased.
