My Winter Essential Products

Hi girls,
Hope you are having good time.

Finally winter is here and now we can enjoy hot coffee, soups and yes dry fruits as well. As a beauty and fashion addict I also like this weather because of the fact that we can enjoy our makeup without any fear of sweating.😃😋😋

In one of my previous posts I shared some skin care tips for cold and dry weather. You can read complete post here .

Winter is a weather of dry skin for most of the people and for me too. My skin is very dry. So I have to take very special care of my skin. Here I am sharing some of my must have products for winter season. You can also say it as my skin survival kit for this dry weather. If any of you also facing the same issue of dry skin, then it may help you in choosing products for your skin. So without further ado let's start.

1. Vaseline petroleum jelly:

     This is very essential product for me. It not only soothes my dry chapped lips but also works for dry heals. No other lip balm does the job for my lips when they are extremely dry and flaky as this product does. So I can trust it even with my eyes closed.

2. Intensive moisturizing cream/ lotion:

     In winter I change my moisturizer because I use light moisturizer in summer and it doesn't work well in winter. My favorite one's are jergens Shea butter, jergens for extra dry skin, Nivea intensive moisturizing lotions and Nivea creams in blue tin packaging.

3. My personal home made toner:

     This is a toner that I make by using natural ingredients. And trust me it works wonders. It not only soothes dry skin ( any body part) with few minutes but also removes tan and dull complexion. I will share the recipe in my future post inshaAllah.

4. Olive Oil:

     This is also one of my essential winter items. I use olive body massage oil to massage my feet, arms, legs and face too. It makes my skin soft and smooth.

5. Home made hair oil:

     When we talk about skin than we should not neglect our hair. Although I have neglected them a lot in the past few years and now facing the results like dry and frizzy hair. Now I have started oiling my hair with this home made oil. I use it once or twice a week and now my hair are getting better.

These were a few products that are must have for me in winters. They are basically related with moisturizing your skin and keeping it well hydrated. In future posts I will share more products that I used mostly in winters.

My Recent Makeup Haul

Hi lovely girls,

Hope all is good at your end.

Today I am sharing my mini makeup haul with you all.

Let me tell you most of the items are those that I didn't plan to purchase. Bacically I wanted to get two Lipsticks shades from two different brands but both of them were not available. That was very disappointing for me.

But anyways here are my picks.

I bought makeup revolution blushing hearts triple baked blusher in peachy pink kisses . This is my first purchase of this brand. Always liked the shape and packing of this blusher and wanted to get it since long. Have started using it already and will be sharing my thoughts soon on it.

Got two essence lip liners. This is also my first purchase of this brand.

When it comes to hair dye , Loreal is always my first choice. Tried some different shades of blonde and caramels in the past couple of months. But none of them worked as I wanted. So now I will dye them close to my natural shade i.e, dark brown. Also purchased loreal magic root touch. Will try this on my Mom's hair.

Makeup revolution Lipstick Renaissance in the shade inclination. Saw it's swatches and loved it. It is a very beautiful  peachy nude shade. Will soon share the swatches.

Bought these nail enamels after a long time. I like both pastels and bright shades. One is nude and the other is black, perfect for winters, though I rarely apply nail paints. That is why I didn't go for any expensive one and bought this locally available affordable brand.

That is all for today girls. I hope you like my post. Share your views in comments section.

Till next time, take care and stay happy.

Artificial Jewellery Collection in Pakistan

Hello everyone,

Hope all is well at your end.

Jewellery has always been very important in a woman's life. It is an ornament that women are wearing since ages. The popularity of the jewelry is increasing with the passage of time as many new designs and styles are on its way into the market. It is an important ornament for all special occasions. Accessories such as jewellery are often the "cherry on top" to an overall outfit.

If you feel like your outfit is not perfect or you want to add some oomph to your overall look, just add some elegant piece of jewelry. In the past jewelry was considered to be the woman thing only. But modern men too wear various types of jewelry like rings, bands, bracelets to improve their look and personality. 

A few decades back, gold and silver were the only metals used to make beautiful and attractive jewelry like necklaces, rings, earrings and other pieces. But these days  Artificial Jewellery has mostly taken the place of gold and silver not only because of the fact that above mentioned metals (specifically gold) have become very very expensive but also more design variety and colour choice is available in artificial jewellery. Girls can have matching jewelry with every dress and also it doesn't make hole in the pocket.

Right selection of jewelry is very important for a woman with the outfit to improve the look and personality. It is important to choose the right type of the jewelry according to the occasion and keeping in view the outfit as well. In a professional environment, one needs to wear very sober and light jewelry like small earrings, and pendants etc.  Heavy  Jewellery Sets are most appropriate for the occasions like weddings, engagement, birthday parties, anniversaries etc.

Every woman loves to wear jewelry and flaunt her beauty. In fact jewelry is every girl's best friend. And it is also true that no girl in the world can ever have enough of the jewelry.😃😃😀

Adding an elegant piece of jewelry to the wardrobe can take your your style to the next level.

That was all for today. Till next time take care and stay blessed.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick In Shade Donut Review, Photos, Swatches

Hi everyone,

Hope all is good at your end.
Today I am here again with another Colourpop product. Colourpop is a brand that delivers affordability and quality at the same time in it's products. It's ultra matte lipsticks and highlighters are very much raved these days.

Colourpop ultra matte lipstick in shade Donut is a beautiful soft pink shade. When I first saw it's swatches, I thought it is a must have for all those who love pink shades.

Now without further ado let's go to the review.

Let's start with packaging. It comes in a white cardboard box with the silver holographic logo of Colourpop on it. At the lower flap you can see the shade name. Inside box, the lipstick comes in transparent glass tube with silver cap that matches with the silver logo. The packaging looks very substantial and gives a high end feel. Good to carry in your hand bag for touch ups.

The doe foot applicator is good enough to spread the product on the lips. But I guess if it's size were a little bigger, then it could be more easy to apply and could give more nice finish.

The texture of this liquid lipstick is creamy and very thin. It glides smoothly on the lips and dries very quickly. So you have to work faster because once it dries up, it stays. The formula is 100% matte  and long wearing and at the same time it is super drying as well. When you are applying it , feels very light. But once it dries up it feels like your lips have gone stiff. When first time I applied this Lipstick on my lips, It felt so weird. That tacky and stiff feeling on my lips was making it so bad.
After using it two or three times I thought that I may not be using it again, because of extremely drying formula. But the shade was so beautiful that I had to find out the way to solve the issues.

So here are some easy steps that I do before applying this liquid lipstick.

First of all liquid lipsticks need special exfoliation before application. So I exfoliate my lips very well to make them soft and smooth. There should be no dry patches or no flaky lips at all. After cleaning and drying my lips I use lip balm to moisture my lips. Then I apply Lipstick and then on the top lip balm again to seal all the moisture. Because the formula has no moisture at all. I use this method before applying all liquid lipsticks. If you also have dry lips like mine than by exfoliating and  moisturizing, you can also use such drying lip formulas.

The shade is very pretty pink. Although it is described as coral. But I couldn't find any thing coral or even near to coral in this shade. I think it all depends on the skin tone. On my skin it translates as a pure soft pink shade.

The staying power is very good. It stays for more than 8 hours on my lips with drinking and normal meal. After having heavy oily meal you might feel little fading and like to touch up. But for me it is ok even without it.

The pigmentation is intense and one swipe gives apaque coverage. Because it dries up within seconds so you have to be very quick in application. You can add layers while it is wet to get a nice finish. Otherwise at times it gets streaky at some corners. So be careful while applying.

It is a long lasting Lipstick so it can be removed with any oil based makeup remover.

This shade requires that you have applied flawless base and other makeup. It looks perfect paired with smokey eyes.

Colourpop products are easily available at online stores. But before purchasing always  compare the prices and purchase from an authentic store.

That is all for today girls. Have you tried Colourpop ultra matte Lipsticks, which one is your favorite shade? Do let me know in comments section.

Until next time, Take care and stay happy.😃😃😃

Colourpop Supershock Highlighter In Shade Spoon Review, Photos, Swatches

Hi lovelies,

Hope everyone is doing well.

Today I am talking about a much raved brand these days. Colourpop is now known for quality products at reasonable prices.
The product under the spot light today is super shock cheek highlighter in shade Spoon.

So let's start with the packaging. These highlighters come in card board square boxes. From the transparent plastic cover at one side you can see shade easily. Inside the box the highlighter pan is round in shape and with a transparent twist lid. The lid closes tightly so you can put easily in pocket of your hand bag.

This is one of the more sparkly shades I have ever used because the sparkles are noticeable on the skin, which may or may not be your cup of tea.

The texture is very smooth, buttery soft and creamy, it  glides on effortlessly and blends well on the skin. It’s highly reflective on the skin when that area where applied, captures the light and that is because of those tiny sparkles.

Staying power is  very good. It stayed for more than 7 hours on my face which is very good for a highlighter.

I really like the shade because it is very subtle somewhere in between gold and a slight touch of silver ( this is how it shows up on my face). When applied it gives a beautiful natural glow. One thing that I have mentioned​ earlier too is that it's tiny silver flecks are also visible ( that must be something everyone doesn't like). When I applied this highlighter for the first time, and noticed some tiny silver flecks I also didn't like it. ( In the pictures above you can notice some tiny silver flecks at the corners of swatches).But after some time I realized that it doesn't look bad at all. Specially if used for night time make up for weddings etc, this highlighter compliments my overall makeup look.

One good thing is that silver flecks stay intact at the place where applied and don't make you a disco ball. Even after several hours I didn't notice any stray particles all over my face or hair. So it is a plus point.

Overall I would say that I really like this shade. And I mostly use it for night time occasions and it looks very nice. But I try to avoid it using it in the day time specially if going out in sunlight.

I bought it from an online store for PKR 1300. Colourpop is easily available at many online stores but prices may vary.

That is all for today girls. Hope you like my post. Give your feedback in comments section.

Till next time take care and stay blessed.
