Maybelline baby lips in berry crush

Lip balms are a staple in every women's purse  even if  you wear minimal makeup I am sure you own a lip balm. For me Lip balm remains a product that is constantly repurchased through out the year.



Not all Lip balms are made equal . Some provide hydration , some provide color , some have both hydration and pigment and then there are some meh lip balms that have fancy price tag and cute to look at packaging but the lip balm inside is something that makes you look more chapped and dry like dry prunes

Maybelline baby lip balm has been making popularity rounds in the beauty blogging world for some time now. It has been getting both rare-views and hate-views too.  So when I ran out of lip balm I decided to plunge into the deep waters and purchase this lip balm
The packaging is cute  2$ or 249 PKr



Packaging:

The packaging is cute and quite eye-catching I must admit. The tube is a small enough to be grown into a small clutch or purse. The cap is secure . This lip Balm has a twist up mechanism so this makes it hygienic. I absolutely hate those products where you have to dip your fingers in .




About the product:

This smells like berries, the scent is so delicious.Now as you can see this looks os vibrant and red in the tube but on application it imparts  a sheer wash of color which Is not too much buildable on multiple swipes. There are specks of gold glitter in this lip balm  but don't panic they are too small to be visible or feel gritty on the lips.  it  applies evenly on the lips and after hrs( without drinking and eating) it disappears leaving the lips smooth and moisturized. One of the best part in my opinion is that this Lipbalm has spf 20 so not does it makes the lips soft it also protects them form the damaging  rays

Beware guys there are a lot fakes circulating online and in the market so make sure you are safe from the counterfeit products as they can pose hazard to your skin

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

My current skincare 2017

Hello
The holy month of Ramadan is almost here and I am so excited 😃. Even though it has been over a month since i got measles my skin has not come back to its normal pattern. So my there has been some major changes skincare routine to deal with the dry flaky skin.

Before I share the products with you guys here is a request. If you haven't got measles as of yet please get vaccinated because trust me adult measles are more severe than childhood measles. The disease is very exhausting and takes a very long time to recover. The sign and symptoms are severe and more pronounced. And the measles scar take a long time to disappear so just save your self from all the trouble and get vaccinated. As vaccination gives life long protection
Ok back to the original post. I will start of with cleanser first. My skin is normally oily. So I use cleanser which reduce oil production and combat acne but as my skin is now very dry I have switched to a hydrating cleanser by nature republic. Now this is basically a cleanser to remove makeup but honestly jt was not doing a good job at removing makeup so now I use this as a face wash. This aloe cleanser leaves the skin soft and moisturized.


Moving on to makeup removers i like to switch between bioderma sensibio H2O micellar water and the Garnier micellar water. Both are gentle on the skin and remove makeup without much effort.
To achieve smooth, flake free skin I use a very mild and gentle green tea scrub by ST.Ives. This is has such fine round granules which are non abrasive and very gentle on the skin. Plus the exfoliate the skin quite thoroughly.
For moisturizer I like to use oriflame tea tree moisturizer during day time and at night I use some thing more hydrating so stelatopia cream by mustella is my choice. Both moisturize the skin well without leaving an oily film.




Even though my skin is dry I like to wear a mud mask once every week, currently i am using the one by freemans ( oatmeal and avocado version)
 
I like to spritz my face with rose water during the day. This makes my face look dewy and fresh.
Lastly I am enjoying the scent of Maybelline baby lips lip balm in berry crush. This unfortunately doesn't leave a tint on the lips but does keeps my lips soft and smooth
That's all for my current routine. Would you recommend any skincare product I should try out?

This year I embraced the nude lips trend. most of the lipsticks I purchased were either mlbb or nude shade

For lipsticks in the flesh by wet n wild, treat by makeup revolution and rendezvousby MUA were the most worn lipsticks

Life update ( post # 2): project pan and haul





So here is my update on project pan I have been participating 


i joined i in early October and have been using these products continuously for three months  here is link if you want to read the previous life update post




 

As you can see I did pretty good job hitting pan on the eyeshadow palette and blush but I will admit that my whole makeup routine become pretty dull using the same palette for a solid three months.

 The lip-balm was fun to use so chances are that I might make another homemade lip-balm soon 

 

 



Though I used the glossy lip-balm by essence quite often sadly I didn’t made any appreciable progress with it 

 

Concealer by makeup revolution was one product which I used up pretty fast but I wont be purchasing it

As for the iconic pro lipstick by makeup revolution, I just couldn’t finish it up because I like the color a lot so I decided to remain in my makeup stash for another year (I purchased it this year)



It was impossible to use freeman dead see mineral mask twice a week as it leaved my skin over dried in winter so there is still some left in the tube
Will I go for another project pan?? No , For now I will shuffle makeup products in my makeup routine because I am really fed up using the same thing over and over again 


mini haul post :

 
I bought two lipsticks from beautybar.pk their service was quite fast I received my parcel in four days 

Both of the lipsticks are from essence one from the matte lipgloss range and the other from the sheer and shine range , I will be posting a review about these soon

That’s all for now 

Bye

Life update : my makeup inventory and project pan





Hello so this is my first ever life update post I thought I should share what going on in my life lately
I have decided to join the project pan in the beginning of October this year, I have a lot of makeup products that are just lying in the drawer getting closer to their expiration date so to get the best out of each penny I have spent on these products I decided to use them up
I went through all of my makeup and separated some makeup which I know I wont be using, this  mainly constituted of red and bold lipsticks that my mom wont allow me to wear .I gave  5 lipstick and three lip pencils to the lady who comes to clean the room. Also my little sister was looking at my makeup collection with awe stuck expression so I gave her the deluxe Maybelline pressed powder and a nude lipgloss by makeup revolution
After all that I made a list of my makeup inventory




Face Powder: 3
Lipsticks:  11 +chubby lipsticks: 2, liquid lipstick:  1, lip palette: 1
Blush: 3 powder, 1 cream
Eyeshadow palettes: 3
Lip gloss: 5
Mascara:  3
Eye pencils:  6
Lip pencils: 3
Mono eyeshadow: 2
Concealer: 3
Eye-primer: 1
Face primer: 1
Foundation: 2
Eyeliner: 4
Lip balm: 2



For the project pan I have decided to hit pan on 7 beauty/ skin care products by the end of December

Here are the products I will try to finish 



The first one is the I heart obsession palette in “pure cult” by makeup revolution. Now this palette is a dupe of UD naked 3 palette it has an array of rose toned eyeshadow. I personally feel that this palette is not for everyone as some of the rose mauve-y shades can give more of a bruised appearance to the eye 

My goal is to hit pan on 4 shades on this palette 



Second is a lipgloss by essence I bought this in December last year it has sweet taste and imparts a slight reddish tint on the lips. Its not that moisturizing but I wouldn’t mind reapplying this as it has a sweet brownie scent. The black mark shows that how little of it is left in the tube.
It wont take long to finish this lipgloss

I just couldn’t bring myself to purchase the Baby lips lipbalm by Maybelline because I thought it is stupid to dish out 400 rs for a tinted lipbalm so I saw some DIY tutorials on Pintrest and made myself a tinted lipbalm using red lipstick. you can see how much I loved this because this is almost used up 

  i  have been using concealer  a lot lately i almost finished my becute concealer so i decided to switch to liquid concealer as its easier to blend in winter, i have used about half of it hopefully it will be finished by the end of december



Next is a blush I purchased from a local shop three years ago. it’s a very muted pink color, chalky texture and pigmentation is terrible. I can see the rings of the pan showing up on this blush. I don’t think I will be able to finish this up since I hate this blush, so my goal is to use it till the silver of the pan is visible 



Just to make the project enjoyable I decided to add pro iconic lipstick in looking ahead by makeup revolution (a recent purchase). I use this lipstick everyday so I think I might finish it by end of December.






Lastly I have the freeman Dead Sea minerals mask. I bought it 2 years ago. This mask is perfect for oily skin as it absorbs all the oil and makes the pores clean. I enjoyed using this mask but now, I want to finish it and try a different mask from the range perhaps the charcoal one. I did purchase freeman peel of cucumber mask but sadly it didn’t work out with my oily skin.

That’s all. I will update you guys about the progress soon 

here i have shared an online store from where you can purchase  onlineBeauty & Cosmetics



Hugs 

Bye

My summer essentials





Girls summer is on and the sun is blazing in its full glory. Summer is all about watermelon, peaches plum mangoes yummy!!  And of course the power outage which keep our sweat glands functional. And then can how can I forget the darling mosquitoes who sing sweet lullaby all night long and bite us to death

I thought about sharing my summer essentials for this year

MAKEUP:




It’s impossible for me to wear foundation in summer when I know all of my makeup is going to run down my face mixed with sweat
So I keep it simple by applying a thin layer of pressed powder the one I am using currently is by Maybelline read the review here

For lipstick I opt for a nude lip gloss or sometimes coral lipstick or a lip balm

For blusher: a coral blusher is my choice 


I like to use a pop of color on my lids colossal kajal by Maybelline in turquoise is what I use

Scent: 



I like to use this deodorant by fa. it has a very feminine scent and has a long lasting power also I does not stains the clothes

For skin care:



I like to use this peel off cucumber mask by freeman. So refreshing

For my nails



I find these nail paints quite bright and summer-y

That’s all!!  what are your summer essentials tell me in the comment box below
