My Latest Online Haul

Hey girls,
Hope you are good.
Today I am going to share my recent haul with you.
Foundation is my first love in all make up items. The reason behind this is that I always like skin that looks flawless. If your base is perfect, only then you can create a beautiful look even with minimal makeup. So I keep my other makeup minimal but try to make a flawless looking base.

Due to this reason, I am always in search of best foundations from different brands that can look best on my skin.

While searching online I came across this page  Bia's cosmetics . With genuine products and prices so reasonable. Loreal Paris Lumi magique foundation was in my wish list, when I saw it here I ordered immediately. The second thing that captured my attention was oval shaped make up brushes. After watching them being used in so many tutorials I wanted to have them in my life.
It is foundation brush from Nee Cara. I never heard the name of the brand, but I wanted to give it a try.

The owner of the page is so nice and cooperative. I was little confused about the foundation shade but she guided me in that regard. Also I requested her to hold my order for few days because I was  stuck in some unforeseen circumstances and she didn't refuse. After making payment the parcel reached at my place well in time. Nice person and nice dealing. I will highly recommend this page to all of you for online shopping.

The prices of both the items are as follows:
Loreal Paris Lumi magique foundation
PKR 1900
Nee Cara Oval shaped brush
PKR 900

That was a short post for today.Have you tried Loreal Paris Lumi magique foundation and What's your HG foundation these days?
Would love to hear from you.

Take care and stay healthy and happy.

Loreal Paris Nutri - Gloss Mirror Shine Shampoo Review

Hey girls,
Hope you all are fine.
Today I am going to review a shampoo that is a new addition to my hair care products. It is from Loreal Paris , Nutri gloss mirror shine shampoo. I am using it almost daily since more than a month and it is about time to write about it.

Shampoo comes in a plastic bottle with a combination of light pink and hot pink colour. Bottle is sturdy and good to take along while traveling. It has flip flop cap which closes tightly and there is no leakage from the bottle.
The one that I have is for normal or dull hair. It claims that it is shine enhancer. Other claims that are written on the bottle are as follows:
* Boosts mirror shine on hair.
* Nourishes and smoothens hair
* Soft, cashmere touch.

The innovative formula contains protein and pearl. Protein is renowned for nourishment and pearl for high gloss shine.
Now let's see if it performs up to the claims or not.

The product inside is of very light pink color. And the consistency is neither too runny nor too thick, perfect for a shampoo. It has a very pleasant smell which is very mild and disappears within few minutes while washing.

While applying to wet hair,  more product is required to make a good lather.

Well it does leave my hair clean and soft . But I didn't notice any mirror shine in my hair. Neither was there any cashmere touch. My hair are normal these days and I was expecting much more from this shampoo . The shine in my hair after washing was hard to notice.
It is almost more than a month and till this day I couldn't see any extra shine  and softness in my hair that i was looking for.

The price is very reasonable i.e, PKR 209. And it is very easily available at drugstores. Overall it is a good shampoo for those having already very healthy and shiny hair as it cleanses hair properly without leaving any residue, so it is very good for basic cleaning.

That is all about today's post. Have you ever tried this shampoo? What is your HG shampoo?

Love reading your comments. Take care and stay happy.

Sleek Blush Rose Gold Review, Photos, Swatches

Hi lovelies,

Today I am reviewing a very favorite blush of mine.
I must tell you that these days I am obsessed with blushes and eye palettes. I have so many on wish list and one of them is orgasm by Nars.

But you know Nars blushes are so pricey so  i have left this option for a while.
Sleek makeup needs no introduction specially its eye palettes and blushes are much raved among makeupholics.
Rose gold is one of those sleek blushes. When I first saw its swatches on different blogs I just fell in love with the shade.
Its a beautiful coral pink shade with golden shimmer in it.
Company claims that it is a highly pigmented blusher to brighten and define cheek bones.

Now talking about my experience, I will start with packaging. It is a black matte compact casing with the same size mirror inside, which is good. The lid closes tightly which makes it travel friendly as well. There is no applicator brush inside the pan which might not be liked by some of you but for me its fine because I find it difficult to work with such small brushes.

Now coming to the product itself. Ammm .... what to say, it is such a beautiful color I am totally in love with it.
I am already obsessed with corals and it makes my obsession much stronger. It is not a completely coral rather it is a peachy pink shade.

The pigmentation is superb. You need a little amount and color payoff is so good. It means that the pan would last longer ( am happy).
Next thing is blending. As the texture is smooth and buttery soft, it makes blending easy and quick. Which is again I like much about any product.
Although its a shimmery blush not a matte one but the shimmer is very subtle and smooth not chunky at all. Also the shimmer gives subtle highlighting effect to your cheek bones when that area captures light. It doesn't feel chalky or overly glittery at all.

The staying power is also very good. It stays on my cheeks for 5-6 hours without primer and when fades away leaves a subtle shimmer behind which looks like a natural glow on my face.

I bought this blush from a Facebook page for PKR 1050. I could not find any negative in the product. Might be pricey to some people. I think its worth for such a gorgeous shade. I just love love this blush.

Have you tried rose gold blush by sleek? Do share your experience with me.

Take care and stay happy.

Garnier Color Naturals Creme Hair Color Review, Photos

Hi girls,

Hope you all are fine. Today I am going to share my experience of Garnier hair color with you. Although I am not one of those who keep on changing their hair color. My hair are very dark brown, so dark that they look like almost black. Very occasionally I like to change my hair color to some lighter shade,  caramel brown is my all time favorite.

Prior to this I was using loreal hair dye which was really very good. I did not want to switch the brand but I had bad luck with it twice. After unsealing, the product from the tube was not coming out and while trying again and again it got ruptured from many points and was all a wastage. It happened twice consecutively. So I thought to try some other brand this time.  I am not comparing these two brands because there is no comparison.

After such a detailed explanation, let's move on to the point.
Garnier color naturals creme is a permanent hair color. It claims to give 8 weeks nourishment to the hair, 100% grey coverage. Also it contains olive oil, avocado and karite.

Comes in regular card board packaging. Inside there are following items:
* Colourant cream
* Developer
* Color care conditioner
* Pair of gloves
* Instructions leaflet

The shade I bought was light golden brown 5.3, which is very beautiful shade that gives a very soft look.

Here are my hair before applying hair dye.

And this is the picture after application of dye. You can see the color is least noticeable indoor while in sunlight one can see slightly burgundy shade in my hair. Although I did not want my hair in this color, I wanted them golden brown , like very close to one in "before" picture, but ok it doesn't look bad at all.

My experience with Garnier hair color is good. My hair got a very decent shade and got much softer and shinier after using its color conditioner. I am not sure about its claim to last upto exact 8 weeks , but yes it lasts longer and doesn't fade or wash away while you shampoo your hair. But yes obviously the new hair that grow at the roots are of your natural color.
Ohh I forgot to mention that I got two coloring  bowls and two brushes free with purchase of two dyes. I don't know whether one bowl and brush is free with every purchase of hair dye or it is part of some ongoing advertising campaign

It's price is PKR 399 and it is available very easily. I am definitely going to repurchase it and recommend to any one who use hair dyes regularly or occasionally because it is very economical and gives very good results.

So that was all for today. Give me your feedback.

Till next post, stay happy and blessed.
