Makeup Revolution mono eyeshadow in shade Blow your whistle






i have been very impressed with the makeup revolution seriously most of the things that i have tried so far are good except for the eyeliner which had such a hard scratchy brush

makeup revolution has a lot of shades in the mono eye-shadow collection ranging from nudes to neon ,shimmer to metallics

now purple is my favorite color so when i spotted this on daraz i added it to my cart without a second thought




Quantity: 2.3 gms

price 210 pkr

packaging:

standard rectangular slim compact with a secure transparent lid





about the product:

i will be very honest with you guys, i had a lot of expectations with this particular shade since it looked so vibrant and neon in the pan but i was a tad bit disappointed when i swatched it because the color pay off was not as pigmented as i hoped it would be but  a wet eyeshadow brush solved that problem



the color as you can see is a beautiful royal neon purple. its a bit chalky but the fall out is not too noticeable i applied it on my eyelid over an eye primer and it stayed well

for the price its not that bad of a product




should you purchase it? umm well on its own this eye-shadow is a  bit lacking but when used over a base or eye primer it works well and looks very beautiful ,if you are new to makeup then is for you


have you tried any mono eyeshadow by makeup revolution ???

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??

MUA Undress Me Too Palette




after purchasing the makeup revolution i heart palette in pure cult i was quite curious to try out more dupes of the infamous Urban Decay Naked palettes

MUA is a very popular drugstore brand and they have a lot of great palettes to choose from so this particular palette the undress me to palette looked a dupe for  UD Naked 2 palette so i ordered this

Price : 750 PKR

Quanity: 9.5 grams

PACKAGING:

palette is made up of sturdy white plastic quite like water colors box i owned when when i was a kid
it has a double ended sponge tip applicator and a clear lid so you can see the eye shadows inside easily

ABOUT THE PRODUCT:



this a cool toned eyeshadow palette which contains fair amount of neutral and basic eye shadows which you can use to create looks suitable for both day time and night time








there are a couple of shimmery eye shadows in the palette that you can use to create a foiled eye shadow look,








pigmentation is pretty good . just two shades a bit chalky, i usually use my MUA eyeshadow primer underneath or the Jordana jumbo eyeliner pencil a base as i have oily eyelids






all the eye shadows have their own individual names which are written at the back, sorry i forgot to take a picture of back of the palette


there are about 3 matte shades , two glittery shades and 7 shimmery shades

for maximum pigmentation i suggest suing the eye shadow brush wet



have you tried any eyeshadow palette by mua??

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

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
