Sweet touch England Matte Lipstick in shade 730

April 26, 2017 1

Sweet touch England is a local pakistani brand which has a lot of great makeup products in their arsenal. They are currently stocked up at makeup city and few other well known retailers across the country.

Today I am reviewing a matte lipstick 💄 by them which has a slight pearl finish. I have been attracted to metallic lipsticks for a fairly long time but no sadly when ever i tried out a metallic lipstick on my  👄  it turned out quite horrible. See the lipstick settled into the fines lines and made my lips look like dried up prunes. Ewww not the look I have in mind. But this matte lipstick by sweet touch England made my dream come true.

This lipstick has a matte finish so its slightly drying on the lips but the formula does not drags on the lips , rather the bullet  glides with easy. The color is a beautiful slightly metallic pink/rosy shade. The color is opague so one swipe completely conceals  the original lip color. I am happy to tell you guys that this lipstick does not settle into the fine lines at all. This has a good lasting power. 6-7 hrs without eating or drinking.

This has a pink mauve-y cover with a silver twist up casing. The cap shuts firmly so no fear of lipstick all over in the purse .

In case of eating this leaves behind a stain.

I have a few shades on my wish list already so expect a big haul post when I visit makeup city.

kbeautilicious product review: IOPE, Banila co, Eunyul

April 18, 2017 0
II recently had an opportunity to try out a couple of products by kbeautilicious. So after a week of testing. I am going to review them

IOPE  Air Cushion RX

The first thing I tried out was the Iope air cushion rx in sample size. Now I have cushion foundations in my wish list for almost 1 year. Since this is a sample version there is no air puff applicator but rather the regular latex sponge  to apply foundation.

The foundation is in shade n 21 vanilla which matched my skin perfectly it has light to medium coverage and the formula is very hydrating on the skin. I also detected a slight scent was was pleasant and not bothersome. This foundation lasted for 5hrs on my face and began to rub off after that from certain spots on my face. I think this is best suited for dry skin and winter season when the skin tends to become dry and flaky

Will I purchase the full version? Definitely

Banila and co. Clean it zero

This is an extremely hyped up balm like oil cleanser which is made up of mineral oil. Now a little word of warning ⚠ here: Mineral oil is a comedogenic agent so if you have acne prone skin steer clear of this cleanser.  I scooped up a bit of product with my fingers and it began to melt instantly. I massaged this into my skin and washed it water and double cleansed  my face with a gel cleanser

this balm is an oil cleanser which loosen ups the makeup and tough oil proof formulas which Are hard to be easily washed off with a regular cleanser.  i just removed my face makeup with this and it worked pretty well. I did a little research and found out that this cleanser comes in a few other variants for sensitive , oily and acne prone skin.

Will I purchase the full size version? Hell yes why not?

Eunyul Natural Moisture Mask Pack in Collagen

Even though I am in my twenties I have tried out a lot of collagen masks already. Collagen is a good hydrating agent. It has skin forming and wrinkle reducing properties. Unlike the many sheet masks I have tried out before this mask by eunyul comes in a smaller packaging but contains equal amount of product in I.e 22ml

Reducing the plastic packaging dimensions is a very eco friendly decision I must say. This has a strong smell but it was not bad. I applied the mask on my face and waited for the serum to absorb into my skin for 40 mins. The serum made my skin itch slightly but it wasn't to uncomfortable. After removing the mask I pated my face and neck with the remaining serum. My skin felt instantly hydrated and a little plump.the effect remained for the whole day. To get full effect I think one has to use the mask consistently for quite some days.

thats all

Maybelline White Super Fresh in shade Natural

April 13, 2017 2

If my memory does not fails me I remember that the first post it posted on this blog was on a pressed powder by Maybelline. I was so excited to share my thoughts on a newly released powder back then. That's when I first plunged my feet into the world of cosmetics.

Funnily the post I am sharing today is on another Maybelline pressed powder in same packaging and price range, but with a different name. It is the Maybelline super white fresh powder. Why do most of Maybelline products have frightfully long names?

Price:550 pkr
Quantity: 9 gms

The powder is cased in the same sturdy rectangular slim compact with a small square sponge.the only change to the design I that the mirror in the compact I a lot bigger than the clear all in one powder.

The super white fresh range comes in five shades and only two of them are available in pakistan. The sale girl accidentally gave me the 2nd shade I.e natural which I was afraid would be dark for my complexion but luckily when I applied it to my face. It matched my skin color quite well

This powder has spf 34+ which is good.and also one of reasons I believe it gives brightening effect to the skin. Its not chalky nor does it oxidize to an unhealthy orange color
It has smooth texture. The powder is finely milled and provides light to medium coverage(depends on how much you apply it to your face) . This can be worn on its own or dusted over a foundation for a matte finish

One of the best thing about this compact is that it comes with an option of refills. I spotted refills at Daraz for400 pkr

I decided to post a picture of all the three Maybelline powders I own.

Best Pakistani Classic Lawn Collection 2017

April 11, 2017 1
Its time to pack up all the winter apparels  and bring out the breezy lawn suits or in my case shop for more because summer is here  in full swing.( I bet most of you might be wearing some lighter fabrics it's just that the weather in abbottabad is still a little cooler).  Just like last year , the legacy of stellar designer lawn collections continues and this year the designs and prints are more creative and eclectic. Nothing can beat the heat than fresh fruit juice and lawn suits that pakistani summers bring in and of course air conditioner that's  if you have electricity . 😁

Though as much as I love to bundle up in thick woollen sweaters and just roam around the house in my comfy pajamas in winters I at times like to embrace pakistani culture, the true roots of my origin and  can there be a more better way than to dress up in shalwar kameez our national dress?? So thankyou summers for allowing me to dress up and look pretty in lawn suits.
Instead of starting this blog post with the over popular mainstream lawn designers I am today going to show you guys some other lawn designer collections which lean more towards to the classical side.

 Stride confidently with the Star Classic Lawn this year. The  lawn suits are unstitched and come with very beautiful borders and floral embroidery, collection is very bright hued and have a lot of design to choose from. What I liked about star classic lawn is that they have added variety to their designs by using a combination of plain and printed lawn fabric together in a single suit which creates dimension to the whole design and looks very pleasant to the eyes.

One of the renowned  brand in pakistani textile industry Rashid Classic Lawn showcases the experience and talent of the designers working behind this brand who put in their effort to bring out this lawn collection in year 2017.the suits are three piece and all color Contrasted well . Moreover there is a duppatta included with the suit which makes it so easy to carry and super convenient if you ask me. No need to have a chiffon Dupatta dyed to match your suit anymore. There is a lot of red , green and blue in the collection. The prints are not flashy they are appropriate for casual and formal events.

If the above mentioned lawn prints were a little to heavily embroidered for your taste here is VS Classic Lawn which have simple yet elegant lawn suits launched this year. Floral and intricate embroidery is placed strategically on the neck line and sleeves. The pieces look timeless and classic. Instead of going with bright colors . Vs classic lawn has more blush nudes and pastel color lawn prints in their collection. For all those of you ladies who like to dress up to more softer colors this would be the best choice.
I recommend heading over to to find Pakistani Lawn Suits online as they have a lot of brands in stock at discounted prices. There is no compromise on quality and they offer free delivery too on orders placed at their website.

Jordana Matte Lipstick in shade Natural

April 05, 2017 2

I am always on a hunt for a nude/neutral everyday mlbb lipstick. Even though i do have a holy grail shade in my collection by makeup revolution called treat i am a bit disappointed by its staying power so my current goal is to find a lip product which matches my lip color and stays for 8+ hours

Matte formula tend to stay on the lips more than satin/hydrating lipsticks that's why I purchase this lipstick by Jordana in the shade natural

Price 1.5$ (in Pakistan from 250-400 Pkr)


 This is the most disappointing part because the packaging is absolutely fragile and cheap( my 1£ makeup revolution lipsticks have way more sturdier packaging). The plastic casing looks like its going to break easily. moreover some part  of the lipstick remains out of the tube so one has to be extra careful not to smash or injure the bullet when taking off the transparent cap

About the lipstick:

Onto the best part. Though the Casing was a bummer the product inside is amazing. The lipsticks is nude brown with a. Slight Peach/orange tinge. The texture is smooth and semi matte. I glides on the lips easily without accentuating dry spots or lines. As its not completely matte the formula does not dry out the lips. Lasting power is 5 hrs without eating anything.

I am comparing this lipstick with my favourite nude lipstick by makeup revolution

Jordana is an American drugstore cosmetics brand which has been making very  good quality affordable makeup, it was officially launched in Pakistan two years ago but for some unknown reasons they are priced exorbitantly so my advice is to either order them from a Facebook page or buy them for beautyjoint directly I will be purchasing a couple nor lipsticks from the same brand soon
