Maybelline White Super Fresh in shade Natural


If my memory does not fails me I remember that the first post it posted on this blog was on a pressed powder by Maybelline. I was so excited to share my thoughts on a newly released powder back then. That's when I first plunged my feet into the world of cosmetics.



Funnily the post I am sharing today is on another Maybelline pressed powder in same packaging and price range, but with a different name. It is the Maybelline super white fresh powder. Why do most of Maybelline products have frightfully long names?


Price:550 pkr
Quantity: 9 gms

The powder is cased in the same sturdy rectangular slim compact with a small square sponge.the only change to the design I that the mirror in the compact I a lot bigger than the clear all in one powder.

The super white fresh range comes in five shades and only two of them are available in pakistan. The sale girl accidentally gave me the 2nd shade I.e natural which I was afraid would be dark for my complexion but luckily when I applied it to my face. It matched my skin color quite well




This powder has spf 34+ which is good.and also one of reasons I believe it gives brightening effect to the skin. Its not chalky nor does it oxidize to an unhealthy orange color
It has smooth texture. The powder is finely milled and provides light to medium coverage(depends on how much you apply it to your face) . This can be worn on its own or dusted over a foundation for a matte finish

One of the best thing about this compact is that it comes with an option of refills. I spotted refills at Daraz for400 pkr


I decided to post a picture of all the three Maybelline powders I own.

Jordana Matte Lipstick in shade Natural


I am always on a hunt for a nude/neutral everyday mlbb lipstick. Even though i do have a holy grail shade in my collection by makeup revolution called treat i am a bit disappointed by its staying power so my current goal is to find a lip product which matches my lip color and stays for 8+ hours




Matte formula tend to stay on the lips more than satin/hydrating lipsticks that's why I purchase this lipstick by Jordana in the shade natural

Price 1.5$ (in Pakistan from 250-400 Pkr)

Packaging:

 This is the most disappointing part because the packaging is absolutely fragile and cheap( my 1£ makeup revolution lipsticks have way more sturdier packaging). The plastic casing looks like its going to break easily. moreover some part  of the lipstick remains out of the tube so one has to be extra careful not to smash or injure the bullet when taking off the transparent cap




About the lipstick:

Onto the best part. Though the Casing was a bummer the product inside is amazing. The lipsticks is nude brown with a. Slight Peach/orange tinge. The texture is smooth and semi matte. I glides on the lips easily without accentuating dry spots or lines. As its not completely matte the formula does not dry out the lips. Lasting power is 5 hrs without eating anything.




I am comparing this lipstick with my favourite nude lipstick by makeup revolution




Jordana is an American drugstore cosmetics brand which has been making very  good quality affordable makeup, it was officially launched in Pakistan two years ago but for some unknown reasons they are priced exorbitantly so my advice is to either order them from a Facebook page or buy them for beautyjoint directly I will be purchasing a couple nor lipsticks from the same brand soon

Duvi stockholm Green Tea Facewash with aloe extracts





With more awareness about growing environmental changes and damage caused by harsh chemicals people are now turning to natural organic skincare products,  in Pakistan organic and natural skin care products are hard to come by only handful of brands are available with a very limited range, ordering foreign brands via fb stores is the only option.  Duvi Stockholm a Swedish skincare brand recently launched its products in Pakistan; today I will be reviewing their   green tea face wash

Quantity: 150ml

Price 1150 pkr

Packaging:
A very sturdy, white squeeze tube which has a very secure cap so no chances of leakage 


About the product:
green tea face wash effectively removes  dirt and impurities without drying the skin. Enriched with a healthy blend of natural ingredients including green tea, aloe vera and olive vegetable extracts. These extracts are known for moisturizing and hydrating your skin as well as reducing the severity of breakouts. Purify your face to reveal a fresh and luminous complexion



My thoughts :
the facewash  has a very mild refreshing green tea scent to it which is not strong or overpowering it has a transparent green gel like texture which lathers well, my face has become a little dry due to winter so I was fearful that it might leave my skin over dry but to my surprise it didn’t. my skin did feel moisturized .
as a cleanser it does pretty well removing oil from t-zone, I haven’t experience any breakouts either
for the price it’s a good facewash as it contains a generous amount of 150 ml which is going to last you a really long time moreover its paraben free, Organic and natural



I would suggest to try out this facewash as it’s suitable to use for all skin types

Duvi Stockholm is currently stocked at  Organic Shop in DHA and Beautex Salon DHA and Pot Pourri DHA, it can also be ordered online via the duivistockholm pk website or from the daraz.pk
You can know more about the brand by visiting their facebook page Duvi stockholm

What do you think of this facewash???
