My Favorite Makeup and Skincare Products of Year 2016

February 02, 2017 0

I know i am quite late to post my last year favourites but as they say better late than never so without further explanation here it is "My year 2016 favorite products"
Drumroll ☺


I am currently rotating two foundations in my makeup routine but the one which I particularly Enjoyed using was  this past year was holika holika sweet cotton bb cream. Its light in weight, smells like cotton candy and has very natural finish


: MUA blush in Marshmallow  My fondness for this blush remains strong and I haven't found any blush which can replace this gem

Makeup Revolution matte effect concealer: this yellow based concealer is creamy and does not accentuates dry under eye area


 Clazona matte Lipgloss
The local dupe of colorpop matte liquid lipsticks. Amazing lasting power and great pigmentation

Mua lip trio in temptress : I really like the balm like texture of the lipsticks and how one could create a sheer to very defined pout with these. Definitely one of most used makeup product of 2016

Eye shadow: the mos beautiful earth toned eyeshadow palette by MUA in shade Heaven and Earth

 Essence dip eyeliner  is by far the best liquid liner I have ever used. The felt dip is so soft and sturdy to line up the eyes. Its not waterproof but I like the formula

Essence Get Big Lashes

Gives the best volume  and length ever to the lashes I haven't found any other last which could perform as great as this mascara

Eyebrows :
 Sweet touch eyeliner pencil. This is long lasting pencil eyeliner which I use to fill in my eye brows. It does the job well and gives subtle definition to my eyes 👀

MUA pro base eye primer

and  Maybelline colossal kajal in turquoise 

for days when you want a little drama, this twist up eyeliner is the best option.

Face wash:

Duvi Stockholm green tea face wash 

I really enjoyed using this face wash all year long. It smells so good, lather well and cleansed skin without over drying it

 Sheet mask cracare best ever 

Of all the Korean sheet masks I used last year. This one without any doubt was the best. I moisturized my face well, didn't break out my skin. Brightened my complexion and smell nice too

Freeman oatmeal mask : To battle off my oily skin I used this mud mask. It performs quite well and reduces my pores appearance
 also kept the oil production under control too

 Face moisturizer :

 Oriflame tea tree

Having an over active skin which keeps on producing frightful amount of oil I rarely use moisturizer as it means clogged pores and comedones but this moisturizer gets absorbed into the skin immediately without leaving any. Sticky or oily residue behind

Circle lens :
Diamond green lens

Very vibrant. The design is beautiful and very comfortable to wear.
So these are all the products I enjoyed using last year
 lets see which new products will make it to the favorites list this year

oriflame volume built mascara

May 08, 2016 16

if i ever get stranded on a lonely island and i am allowed to take only one makeup article with me it, without any second thought mascara is going to be might ultimate choice!!! why you ask me?
well i just love fluttery eyelashes and love how just a coat of mascara gives dimension and mysterios look to the eyes

About the brand

Oriflame is an international brand from Sweden their product range includes hair, skin and personal care, color cosmetics, fragrances

i purchased this mascara to try out the brand as i have heard a lot about them and seen a lot of positive reviews, this brand has been available in Pakistan for quite some time do the brand is very reliable 

Quantity : 11ml 

Price : about 350 PKR aprox




its a long purple tube with the details of the product written with pink. the cap secures quite well so no fear of mascara drying up  

it has a regular bristle brush not too fat or too thin

My thoughts:

this mascara is best suited for an everyday look, they dont make your lashes look too glamorous

in terms of volume i didnt noticed much difference on my lashes but it does lengthens up my lashes well
the formula is on the wet side. its not waterproof by any means so if you are looking for a waterproof formula then this is a big no for you. i didnt notice any clumping of my lashes the brush seperates the lashes which is a plus point , no flaking either .

i really like wearing this mascara to college as it gives subtle definition to my eyes without going over board i like to wear natural and light makeup to college. it stay on for long, does not irritate the eyes and the brush size reduces chances of messy application unlike the essence mascara which have fat brushes

 Availability :

available at and  oriflame agents on facebook
for the price i think one should buy this mascara

which mascara do you use for everyday makeup routine???

until next post

Essence Get Big Lashes volume curl Mascara

February 17, 2016 9

welcome to my blog 

my recent growing obsession has to be mascara, i just love the look of thick voluminous black lashes
since mascara come with the shortest life span i like to try drugstore mascara.

essence has a vast range of mascaras having fancy, cute and bright packaging, even the brushes are designed with absolute care

Essence Get Big Lashes volume curl mascara is one of the recent addition to the range, 

so lets get into the review shall we???

Quantity:12 ml 

Price: 430 pkr 


its a very vibrant red fat tube and has a ''e''  printed on top of it. the wand is medium sized and has a very fat brush on the end which is curved from on side 

About the product:

the formula of this mascara is very wet and runny. i guess it will thicken  and dry up  a little bit after some time.  due to its large brush its a bit trick to use this mascara as i am afraid that i might smudge it on my face or lid.

the curled part of the brush is perfect to lift up the lashes giving them a nice curl. these lashes give good volume to my lashes but not too much lenght which is ok with me as i always look for volumizing mascara. this mascara does not has any noticeable scent .

one thing i noticed when removing this mascara is that its not easily washable. i know this not waterproof mascara but the formula is a bit stubborn to remove with just soap and water 

overall i like this mascara, which mascara is your favorite???

essence is available at all leading pharmacy, and

MUA mascara shade 6

January 21, 2016 6

hello again,

today i will reviewing a very colorful mascara that is something i would rarely use since i wear more  of a neutral makeup but then it looked so vibrant that i just couldn't resist 

Quantity: 5ml

price:210 pkr


its a simple electric blue tube same as the  shade of mascara has a very long wand and an average brush 

this mascara has the most weirdest texture i have ever used. it has  cotton fibers like fibers in it for giving volume and length i suppose. the color of the mascara is a vibrant electric blue

i have found another way to use this mascara that is by applying a coat of black mascara on top of this mascara gives thick false eyelashes like effect which is so pretty

for the price i think this mascara is  a bargain 

available at and mua store online

my year 2015 favorites

January 03, 2016 2


I enjoyed using the the matte effect foundation by Makeup Revolution all year due to the natural coverage it provided and the light formula

I also liked the pro base primer by MUA

Marshmallowby MUA  still remains my favorite blush this year


This year I embraced the nude lips trend. most of the lipsticks I purchased were either mlbb or nude shade
My favorite liplner has to be by essence as it can be worn alone or under any lipstick/ lipgloss (read review here)

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


 the heaven and earth palette by MUA was the best eyeshadow palette i tried this year.when it comes to my oily lids eyeshadow pencil by jordana was the perfect choice

the i love extreme volume mascara by essence still remains to be my fav mascara this year 

circle lens 

i reviewed a lot of circle lens in year 2015, it was fun trying them 
i was very hard to decide which one was my favorite as all are vibrant and very comfortable however i particularly liked the review choco circle lens for every day wear and t top lens in ice blue for formal occassions 


 what were your favorite makeup products i year 2015??? let me know in the comment section

Essence I love extreme volume mascara

January 18, 2015 0

I have long thin lashes so for the past few months I have been on a hunt for a good volumizing mascara. Since mascara has a very short shelf life I did not wanted to buy something too expensive.

 This mascara caught my eye when I stopped by the essence makeup stand so I purchased this cutie praying it would live up to all that it claims on the packaging

Price: pkr 590

Quantity: 12ml


It has such a fun purple color fat tube. I really like how it stands out in my makeup bag
The wand is long and has a fat brush with tiny rubber bristles
One thing which I disliked about the essence products is that they are not sealed which means anyone can just open it swatch it, well hello bacteria and dried out product!!!

About the product:

The formula is dry unlike the Maybelline mascara which is quite wet. This mascara is not waterproof and can be removed easily with soap and water it has a faint scent (which I can’t detect) which vanishes after application 
The short bristles grab each lash and dump decent  amount of product on them however too many coats of this mascara can make the eyelashes look clumpy

My opinion:

it adheres to the lashes well and gives them volume and dramatic length when I wore this to a family occasion everyone thought I was wearing false eyelashes lol. For the price this is a great volumizing and lengthening mascara

I did not experienced any smudging nor flaking for 8hrs while wearing this mascara

You might like it;

If you have short sparse eyelashes
You like dramatic eyelashes look
You are looking for cute and affordable mascara

You might not like it

If you are looking for a waterproof mascara

My ratings

4out 5

The products can be purchased from beauty arena, and also from essence counters nation wide

I am not a mascara person because I have super sensitive eyelashes, any attempt of curling or making them appear beautiful results in eyelash fall (if it makes any sense).this  is actually the first mascara which has not harmed my eyelashes in any way or irritate my eyes

PRICE: pkr 450( i got it at a discount so it cost me 425)

SHADE: blackest  black

QUANTITY: 10 ml/.34 oz

What  Maybeline claims about it:

Great big brush plus volume- building formula gives great big lashes
Volume builds with each coat, no clumps no glods
Ophthalmologist tested. Contact lens safe

I got this from D-Watson  Islamabad

PACKAGING: this is the best  part. The packaging is so adorable it’s a very eye catching pink bottle with a pretty green cap. This looks so pretty standing upright on my dresser. so cute

big brush

My thoughts:

I really love this mascara. The formula is not runny but creamy and dries off fast on my eyelashes. it does not has any scent to it and is very black. It makes my eyelashes appear long and gives volume to it(not too much volume). Its perfect for every day look as it does not gives a dramatized look to the lashes. its also easily removable.water proof formulas are such a pain when it comes to remove them from the eyes. I just wash it off with soap and water, but don’t be alarmed because it does not flake off at all. The brush was big(fat) as claimed by Maybelline. I had a little trouble with it in the beginning but if you are good at applying mascara then it won’t be hard for you. The bristles on the brush prevent clumping and separate each lash so they look natural not like spider legs J.

how it looks on my eyelashes

Overall I am quite satisfied with the product and will repurchase it in future
Staying power: I wore this for 8 hours and trust me it was still there (cool right).

You might like it:

If you have sensitive eyes
You want a lengthening mascara
You need a mascara for every day look
You like having makeup products with cute packaging

You might not like it:

If you are looking for a water proof mascara
You are looking for a product which gives lots of volume

there have been a lot of fake maybeline products out there so i posted this pic so that you know you are purchasing the original product

I rate this product :4.5 out of 5

you can purchase this mascara from stores which stock maybeline or here
