Haul post: 1st haul of year 2017


hi
despite the fact that i made a resolution to spend less money on cosmetics and other stuff i caved in to temptation and ended up buying a lot of stuff this month ,

so here it is the the very first haul of year 2017


i purchased  this amazing mascara by essence for 450 Pkr and the very hyped up la girl hd pro concealer in porcelain  for Pkr 550 so far so good i will be testing these products out for  a week to write down a final verdict on their performance

i bought another clazona matte lipgloss this time in the shade 514, its  a beautiful cool red looks absolutely gorgeous, i know i don't wear red lipstik but i intend to create a gradient lipcolor with this matte lipgloss. the shopkeeper charged me 250 Pkr for this matte lipgloss this time

the highlight of this post is definitely this beautiful choker i purchased from a stall. i really like the contrast of red and green beads paired with the sparkling rhinestone and gold details, now i have to wait for a event to wear it to , lol

Clazona 24 hr matte lipgloss




Every one has been going crazy over the launch of Kylie Jenner lip kits,  i have seen so many rave views that now i am also curious to try out the product and see what the hype is all about but firstly my financial conditions do not allow me to dish out so many dollars for the lipstick secondly its so hard to get a authentic makeup product in Pakistan . i have seen a lot of shady Facebook pages popping up lately claiming that they sell original branded makeup 

so to ease the empty feeling in my heart i decided to order color pop but before i could place my order i discovered this gem of a product manufactured by a local Pakistani brand,



Clazona a pakistani makeup brand is bringing out quality makeup products in the market for a long time and these matte lipgloss are no exceptions

they do exactly what it says on the tube, stay on the lips for 24+ hrs
disclaimer i didnt wear this lip product for that long but one of my friend did went to sleep with this on and it was still on her lips in the morning , no smudging , minimal flaking




Quantity: 6 g

Price: 150- 200 Pkr

Packaging :

just a like an ordinary lipgloss with a doe foot application , tube closes securely so no leakage




About the product: 

its a opaque lipgloss which  drys to a matte finish, has a faint chemical scent, does not budge or smudge , totally water proof , not drying or uncomfortable on the lips , a very thin layer is suitable for flawless applications
drys off quite fast so you have to be very quick when applying it which also means that its very hard to correct mistakes 

do  exfoliate your lips befire applying else its going to look like like your lips are flaking off

survives after meals , very long lasting 

i have this lipgloss in two shade
one in shade # 504 qnd the other in shade #507

Shade #504 is a dusty nude shade looks beautiful and natural on the lips
Shade # 507 is orange brown shade






Tip: to remove it from the lips use a lotion on a cotton ball or tissue 



 here is a pic of the clazona stand I saw

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

essence xxxl longlasting lipgloss matte in soft nude



Essence has been coming up with a lot new interesting makeup products launched recently, the one which intrigued me most was this matte lipgloss
the whole concept is very interesting besides the color range is small yet versatile from nude to bold an innocent dusty pink, a shade to cater every ones individual personality 


Quanity:4.5 ml


Price about 400- 420 PKR


About the packaging 


stabdart plastic lipgloss tube with a long applicator, very secure cap a thin sponge flexible applicator
sorry i dont know if the applicator has a special name to it



My thoughts:


first of all its smells amazing. pretty much all the essence lip products have a candy like scent, this one smells like caramel. its very moisturizing and has a smooth moose like texture not runny or gloopy at all. in the beging the lips look shiny but after about 5-10 minutes they the gloss drys to semi matte finish
the lasting power is pretty disaaponiting. it hardly survives on my lips for 2 hrs. and when eating or drinking it disppears immediately. i dont know if its the same with the rest of the shades or this shade particularly



i would describe this as a nude brown color, very beautiful goes well with the essence lip liner in the shade" in the nude"

this lipstick can sometimes accentuate fine lines and dry spots on the lips so exfoliate before applying it



in terms of staying power its a bummer but when applied on top of a lipliner it does lasts a bit longer
the color is beautiful so i personally though that reapplication through out the day can be over looked

would you like to try this product out ?

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

Mua Intenses Kisses Lipgloss in lips are sealed




i previously owned one of Mua lipgloss from the intense kisses range in the shade pucker up (read review here) but it became all gross and smelled awful so i chucked it out ,

recently when looking up at swatches online i realized how beautiful this color looked so i ordered it immediately



Quantity: 5.1ml

Price 360 pkr

 

Packaging:

 

transparent square plastic tube with a doe foot applicator and a glitter kiss on the lid 




about the product:

 

it has good pigmentation for a lipgloss, the color is a very pretty pink perfect for spring or summer. feels very  hydrating on the lips. it has a faint sweet scent to it but no taste  


i am going to buy a couple of more shades from the range since they the pigmentation is so good for the price 

available at just4girls.pk

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
