Haul post

salam


I have been a smart shopper lately so every time I go out I think twice when purchasing something. And I am happy to report that for the past couple of months I haven't bought any makeup/skincare item on a whim.


Since I am a contact lens user I switched from optiplus contact lens cleaner to Renu contact lens cleaning solution lets see how this works for both my eyes and contact lens
After trying out the bioderma sensibio h2o micellar water I have been quite curious about the performance of garnier micellar water so I bought a small bottle of it to test out. I will post a detailed review on it soon also I might do a comparison post on the two.
Moving on I bought another cleanser from the skin maskeurade exhibition. First impressions: This smells so good . I also got some samples so lets see if I like them or not


I also purchased Maybelline baby lips lip balm a staple for every purse. And since summer is here I picked out a fun green colored nail enamel . And a pen eyeliner. Some nail enamel removing pads and the color changing lip oil. Rhinestone Bobby pins and a garnier sample size face wash that I got with a purchase of a hair dye .
That's all guys. Are you a smart shopper or do you purchase things on a whim. Do let me know in comments section down below

Essence Dip Eyeliner



i dont wear eyeliner on day to day  basis i sometimes use a brown pencil to add dimension to my eyes but on special occasion i do like to wear a winged eyeliner.

essence makes some great eyeliners, this one is a new launch its called the dip eyeliner ,and it has felt tip for an applicator which is so much better than a brush in my opinion



Price : 390 Pkr

Quantity : 4ml

Packaging : 

small cute tube with a gray cap and a felt tip applicator which is non scratchy and easy to use.

About the product:

 its a quick drying liquid eyeliner  which drys to a some what matte finish , the felt tip is very gentle on the eyelids does not scratch or drag the eyelids , lts very pigmented and can also be applied over glitter or metallic eye shadow easily 



the bottle has a rubber stopper which prevents the  eyeliner from drying which a plus point because my mascara and eyeliner tend to dry way earlier than their expiry date


the only problem with this eyeliner is that its hard to dry a thin line with the felt tip.

this formula does not flakes off or smudges thought out the day and its  very easy to remove , just soap and water would do the job perfectly


overall i really like this formula and once i run out of this i am going to repurchase

Makeup pencils review by Sweet Touch, Manhattan , Christine



i had a lot of pencils in makeup stash that i felt were good enough to be reviewed  so here it is a picture heavy makeup pencils review

sorry for not wiping my pencils before taking pictures, but hey i was trying to add reality to the blog post. lets be honest , our makeup pencils do look like this after use? right ? yes ?no?



i have three lip/eyeliner pencils from Christine local brand one from Manhattan , one lipliner from sweet touch and black eyeliner also from Sweet touch




the first one is a pink liner by Sweet touch  its called mars i believe, the shade is a everyday pink color, very pigmented only negative point is that the pencil is a bit hard and sometimes drags on the lips, i apply it underneath my lipstick to make the lipstick last longer

the second pencil is by Manhattan cosmetics i use this to liner the lower rim of my eyes, it makes me look awake and gives a larger appearance to the eyes, the color of this eyeliner is a nude  gray, very pigmented and very soft , does not irritated the eyes at all , moreover it does not has any scent

the third pencil is an eyeliner by sweet touch, i really love this eyeliner, its very soft and gentle on the yes and very pigmented, i didnt tried it on my water line as i dont like to wear dark colors on my lower lash line
it is water proof so once its set , it does not smudge through out the day



these pencils are by christine, these are very soft and pigmented but they dont stay for  long on  water line or the lid, smudge easily and disappear after 2hrs, i like to use these a base underneath my eyeshadow



priced at about 20-60 pkr these are great for trying out various makeup looks 




SWATCHES 






Thats all

bye

Life Update post 04: makeup organization haul shopping …….







Hello.

I am so excited about the holy month of Ramadan, love all the parts of the holy month ranging from sehri to aftar and long taraweeh nights ,  and then finally shopping for Eid



I hauled a few items , tried out the timotei shampoo on a recommendation of a beauty blogger . I will admit it. This shampoo smells amazing and leaves my hair soft and shiny too





Nivea is a household name so I clearly don’t need to elaborate more about the cream except for the fact that I found a mini size jar and thought it would be very handy to throw it my college bag 



I also purchased another product from the brand oriflame and this time it’s a skin lotion I will be posting a review on this lotion soon 

Can’t get enough of Mua intense kisses lipgloss so just went ahead and ordered my third shade from the range this one is called kiss and makeup

I am running low on my current foundation so bought essence foundation in advance( review already lined up to be posted }. Purchased dip eyeliner on a whim because everyone was raving about it, so far so good





I went shopping with my friends a few days back and came across a lot of local brands who have wide range of makeup products in every color

Picked out some random nail colors




Purchased these Christine eyeliner/lipliners for RS 60 /- each , man they are so soft and pigmented



I don’t have much interest in cooking or baking but these kitchen related stuff looked so cute that I had to take a picture

That’s all for  today’s post

Lip colors for summer to pair with a neutral palette




Before I get into showing you the lip colors I have picked for summer let me just say it out loud!! How on earth did the temperature turned 43C in Islamabad it never exceeded more than 38 and the highest that I remember was 40 C. Apocalypse
How is it in your city??

Now on to the post, this year I have been wearing a lot of makeup trends mostly Korean and Japanese. I am also doing a Project Make A Dent in  Makeup so far I have made quite noticeable dents in 4 of my lipstick, used up 2/3 of my daily foundation  and also hit pan on a pressed powder . In case you are interested about details you can read the post here

So keeping up with the hot yet bright and colorful theme of summer I picked out these lip colors for the summer 









For an eye-shadow palette that can go well with these bright lipsticks I chose Undress Too palette by MUA which is a very affordable dupe for the infamous Urban Decay Naked 2 palette
It has a perfect combination of glittery and matte shades so you can either go bold or don a very neutral eye look 



That’s all girls
Which lip colors do you wear most in summers??

life update post no #3


hello

i am back with another life update post, i love doing these kind of posts, give me a chance to write about something other than makeup reviews

i have been trying my best to keep up with my new year resolutions this year. and one of the resolution was to curb my makeup buying habit, so far i have only bought a mascara but who knows i might go into an online shopping frenzy again

i did placed an order at daraz.pk but this time instead of shopping for makeup and well clothes i bought my self headphones a cute badminton racket mp3 player and a micro SD card to go with it




also i am very happy to announce that i have finally hit pan on my maybelline compact powder after a use of 2 years .i also managed to finish a lipgloss which is a big achievement since  i hate liglosses this one is by makeup revolution and its a pretty cute nude pink color. you can read review here
i have also used half of my makeup revolution lipstick in atomic red, essence sheer and shine lipstick in bff and MUA power pout in rendezvous




i also did a mini haul and purchased these M.A.C rip off brushes from a local cosmetic store
so far they haven't shed and are very soft . funny part i dont have a highlighter to use with my fan brush so next makeup product in my wishlist is definitely a highlighter . any suggestions girls???
i also purchased a midi ring and a flower shaped studs and a beauty blender dupe for 200 rs, super cheap right !!

i got rivaj pore strip on a whim lets see how it performs


here is attempt at making paratha :(
and fried egg for breakfast though i might as well share that with you guys



that's all for now , until next post update
bye

love

Makeup revolution water proof liquid eyeliner





There used to be a time when I used to love liquid eyeliners but then I developed infection on the lids due to sharing my makeup . note to self never share makeup products which have a creamy or liquid-y texture as it spreads infection, from that day on ward I have been using pencil eyeliners as it can be sharpened before every application reducing changes of getting an infection but recently I have been yearning to try the winged eyeliner trend blame taylor swift here . so I purchased a liquid eyeliner

Quantity: 3ml

Price: 300 pkr




Packaging

  I was very disappointing by the small size of the tube    ( I am used to holding long thick eyeliner tubes by essence) but comforted myself by the fact it will be quite handy to carry in a clutch . black plastic somewhat conical shape

My thoughts:
This is the most disappointing product I have used by makeup revolution so far. A liquid Eyeliner must have two things 

1.    A good workable formula
2.    A good firm applicator

This eyeliner lacks both of the properties it is by no mean waterproof the formula does not dries fast and the applicator is a transition between a brush and felt tip. its terrible, hard and scratchy. I had to use an angled brush to apply it on my eyes



You might like it:
If you don’t have any other choice

You might not like it:

It hurts the eye
The applicator is hard
The formula is not waterproof


         Will I repurchase it ??
Never there are better  liquid eyeliners in the  market

 My rating :

I rate this 1 out of 5
