Latest Women's Lawn Collections 2018 Online

February 23, 2018 0
So I am back with another fashion related post. Since the weather has changed a lot in past week I feel that now is the right time to discuss Lawn trends.
Honestly speaking summers is my least favourite season of the year. Please Winters Stay a little longer 😢
What makes the terribly hot weather a little more bearable is a glass of cool refreshing drink and a well stitched, good quality lawn dress.
Since many designer brands have already started launching their Lawn Collection for this year, I am going to shed some light on VS Lawn 2018

As always the collection is beautiful. A lot of bright colors are used in contrast to create stunning, feminine Lawn dress. What pleases me the most is that every piece in the collection has its own unique print design and have you checked out the price of these???
Its so affordable and easy on the pocket.
I am glad that digital prints have gone out of style ( not my favourite trend of 2017).
The current Lawn design look way more flattering plus the striking color selection os very pleasing on the eyes.
If wearing bright colors not your styles and you prefer muted pastel colors then I suggest you give Star Lawn 2018 collection a look, I promise you wont be disappointed at all.
This collection is suitable for older age women. The patterns are delicate and look sophisticated. This too is very affordable. Something  under 2000 Pkr.
 I am glad that with passing time more and more brands are coming up with very practical looking lawn collection. The designs are elegant and perfect for college and working women. Unlike many  main stream brands who release expensive  Lawn collections, Vs Lawn and Star Lawn have great  lawn suits which fit every budget. One of my favourite ways to shop is online shopping. If you are short on time and don't have the patience to walk through multiple shops to find the lawn dress you want, try online shopping you would be surprised to the see more variety in lawn brands, prints and designs. Best part you can shop from the comfort of your house and receive what you have purchase at your doorstep too.
Pakstyle has just update their store with new launches , Now you can purchase Latest Lawn Collection 2018 at there store. So grab your favourite pieces before they are gone

Happy spring season !!

Jessup 7pcs Basic Eye brushes set

December 15, 2017 1
I have been watching Michelle Phan for ages but no matter how many times i tried to re create her easy makeup looks they sadly never turned out the way they should have until i tried out this professional 7pcs Basic Eye brushes set by Jessup and understood the real difference a good makeup brush set can make when creating an eye makeup

the 7 brushes in this set are versatile they in my opinion can be used not just on eyes but on lips and cheeks too 

1.Eye Liner brush

Brush Length :15cm
Brush hair:Synthetic hair
Create smooth and even lines. Use with gel or liquid liners. 

as you can see the brush is a little on thicker side but you can easily create an winged eyeliner or my personal favorite the droopy puppy eyeliner look with it .the bristle are firm yet soft to create the perfect line. i think this can also be used to apply lipstick on the lips as its small and precise

2.Pencil brush 

Brush Length :16.2cm
Brush hair:animal hair
Soften and smoke out lines. Soften pencil liners along the top and bottom lash lines, add shadow to line the eyes, or use to highlight inner corner of the eyes. 

this white goat hair brush is perfect to smudge eyeshadow under the eyes or to deepen the color in the crease, the hair on this are soft and maintain their shape even after washing. really love how you can use this  to create complex eye looks with this

3.Blending brush

Brush Length :17.5cm
Brush hair:animal hair
Blending Soft blended crease. Using just the tips to apply color, sweep back and forth through the crease for a diffused and blended finish.


an eye look is never complete unless its blended uniformly and this big fluffy brush is perfect for it . its soft black bristles are soft and sweep so well across the eyelid to blend all the harsh lines of eyeshadows. i have also used this to apply highlighter on the highest point of my cheeks and boy this is perfect

4.Eye Shading brush small

Brush Length :16.3cm
Brush hair:animal hair
Even application of color. Place color across the whole lid for an even and strong application of product. 

the shape of this brush is perfect to pack color on the lid. the bristles are soft and pick the pigments quite well. i also like to use this to place  eyeshadow under my eyes when doing an smoky eye look as its super soft and gentle

5.Large Shader brush 

Brush Length :16.6cm
Brush hair:Synthetic hair
Uniformly cover the whole lid with product. Apply cream shadow base or cream shadow for quick and even coverage.

i originally decided to use this as a concealer brush because the bristles are firm and rally help to place the concealer under the eyes but now i think this is also good at placing eyeshadow on the eyelid specially eye glitter and heavy metallic pigments

6.Small Angle brush 

Brush Length :15.2cm
Brush hair:Synthetic hair
Create precise lining. Moves fluidly and easily across the upper and lower lash lines. Use with gel, cream or powder products. 

wow the angle of this brush is perfect to create that sharp crisp cat eye or winged eyeliner look. the bristles are strong and upright and hold their position. moreover they can  also be used as an eyebrow brush

7.Medium Angled Shading:

Brush Length :16cm
Brush hair:animal hair
Soft application of color. Use for brow highlighting or to blend the crease.

this brush is perfect for placing highlighter under the brow or for that  nose contour. the bristles are soft and blend the powder products pretty well also the angled shape makes it easy to trace the outline of nose bridge 

final thoughts 

the ferrules of all these brushes is well and does not feel too heavy or too light. the handles are well made and very comfortable to hold and use. i particularly like this black and gold combination its so classy and chic. its advised to wash the brushes with mild shampoo to remove the smell but surprisingly i didn't detected any kind of harsh smell when using these brushes, i gave these brushes a wash and was surprised how they  the maintained their shade after drying. the bristles didn't shed at all  nor did they release any kind of color.

super pleased with  these. i think the quality of these brushes beats that of many high end brands not only are they super affordable but they are also well made. highly recommend you to try Jessup brushes i promise you wont regret your purchase 

can be purchased at the jessup website here for $11.98

IUNIK Vitamin Vitalising Hyaluronic acid toner

December 12, 2017 0
So I watched this video on youtube by gothamista and glow recipe where they shared a secret to glowing akin aka  The 7sin method. What is seven skin you ask? Well its a new toner application technique to get that glowing skin where you are suppose to apply seven layers of a hydrating toner  one later over another ( it does has to be 7 you can start with 3  and take it up to 5  depends on your preference. This technique is specially beneficial for dehydrated and oily skin.
The toner must be free from alcohol and actives
I have only two toners in my skin stash and only one of them was fit for this skin routine
Its IUNIK Vitamin Vitalising Hyaluronic acid toner
The bottle is well made and sturdy and there is a stopper with a small hole through which you can dispense the product

Initially when I looked at the viscosity of the toner I was under the impression that its going to be a thick tacky toner which is going to take ages to absorb but I was so surprised when I placed a few drops of this on my palm. The texture though viscous absorbed so easily into my skin and my skin felt soft and hydrated. There is  mild scent which disappears within a minute or so . its safe to say that this toner is suitable for all skin types ( yes this includes oily skin )
The star ingredients in this toner
Are Hyaluronic Acid intensive hydrating and smoothing fine lines and
Hippophae Rhamnoides  (Sea Buckthorn) fruit extracts which posses potent antioxidant qualities and 0% alcohol

As for the seven skin method I did enjoy trying it out but I wont be incorporating this method to my skin care routine because
1. This methods makes such huge dents in the product in a single day
2. What should I do with the all the hydrating face creams that I have in my stash
3. I feel too lazy to apply more skin care products to my skin after this method so my other skin treatments get neglected
In short this  IUNIK toner is perfect all year round toner and the price is pretty good considering the amount you get
I would highly recommend you all to try out this toner I promise you wont regret it
Retails for around 16-17$ and can be purchased here at IUNIK website

 I am very picky when I comes to face creams because I have oily skin so for me if a cream sits on the face, feels heavy , causes breakouts or make my akin look greasy I just pass it on to someone is going to love it more
since its winter and my skin is behaving ( producing less oil) I love to slather creams both in the morning and before bed time
Skin elasticity improvement

i recently hit pan on my  favorite oriflame tea tree cream and was quite bummed out because i couldn't find it online but swanicoco bio cell cream turned out the  be the savior for my cold distressed skin.
 PmGF-x contained
 Volume lifting effect via mineral water
Mineral Water, sh-Polypeptide-16, sh-Polypeptide-4, sh-Polypeptide-22, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Isoamyl Laurate, Cetearyl Alcohol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Collagen Amino Acids, Grifola Frondosa Fruiting Body Extract, Maltodextrin, Ceramide NP, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Astaxanthin, Backhousia Citriodora Leaf Extract, Swiftlet Nest Extract, Morus Alba Bark Extract, Angelica Gigas Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Bletia Hyacinthina Bulb Extract, Trichosanthes Kirilowii Root Extract, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Fruit Extract, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Flower Extract, Lycium Chinense Fruit Extract, Phytosterols, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Calophyllum Inophyllum Seed Oil, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil, Trehalose, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Sorbitan Stearate, Polyacrylate-13, Polyisobutene, Polysorbate 20, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Laureth-7, Xanthan Gum, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Allantoin, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Adenosine, Caprylhydroxamic Acid, Propanediol

I love swanicoco for its sturdy packaging. The tube is very travel friendly and not bulky. I love the chic white packaging with the instructions written over it. This comes in a cardboard box and and inside the box as you can see in the picture more details are present along with illustrations. To keep up with hygiene they have included a cute little spatula to scoop out the cream and a lid to help the cream remain fresh for longer duration
This cream contains mineral water. Initially this feels quite thick and I feared it would feel heavy and suffocating on the skin but I was so surprised when this immediately absorbed into the skin without. Leaving any greasy residue behind. My skin felt soft and supple with soft matte finish.
One thing that didn't settle well with me was that this has a mild smell ( kind of smell that comes of from wet clothes if they are left in a closed container) but the good thing is that it doesn't linger for long. ( 30 secs maybe)
Other than that I really like this cream. This has now become my every morning pre makeup staple
If you are an environment conscious person and care about carbon footprint. Then swanicoco is a brand for you. They make environment friendly products which are great for both your skin and environment
you can purchase this cream at beauty tap website

[Review] Elizavecca Milky piggy BB cream

December 03, 2017 1
Today I am reviewing this BB cream by Elizavecca. The packaging is really cute and vibrant. This contains 50ml of product and the tube is slightly bigger than an average bb cream.
Its comes in an identical cardboard box which has this original seal for quality and authenticity assurance

Whats best about this Bb cream is that it contains SPF 50+ PA+++ so this not only covers blemishes and evens out skin but also provides protection from the sun
This Bb cream comes in only one shade so those who have warmer skin tone this might not be for you.

This has a thick texture and its coverage is pretty good ( medium-full). But don't worry this can be sheered out if you want. ( used a damp beauty blender to apply this for sheer coverage)
Even though its thick this has a satin - moist finish so for those of you who have acne and dry skin this is the best  formula. Gals with oily skin can just dust a bit of loose powder for that matte finish
On first application this might look a bit chalky ( the bb cream has a bit of grey undertone) but after few minutes the shade kinds of adjusts so it looks natural. I also detected some kind of scent but I can figure out what it smells like exactly
All in one this bb cream is great because it brightens complexion, provides hydration, hides blemishes, evens out skin tone, gives
glow to the skin and protects from sun
This retails for dollars and can be purchase at yesstyle for 9-12 $

8Beautycosmetics Mask fixer

November 22, 2017 0
Ok so as a avid sheet mask user sometimes after using a sheet mask I often feel that my skin needs some kind of an after product which seals in the moisture. I know people use occlusives for that but for people who have oily skin heavy moisturizers are a big "No"

I got to try this super cool one of its kind Mask Fixer by 8Beautycosmetics ( an innovative skincare product which never existed before)
The packaging is a very convenient pump bottle which contains a generous 100ml of product in it. The bottle is 100% spill proof and the pump dispenses adequate amount of product so have fear of wasting product

About the product:

This is a light weight Slightly opaque liquid which can be used as a substitute for essence or be used after a sheet mask as finishing product. I have used this product on its own under my own and I really enjoyed how it gave my oily skin a punch of moisture and helped me with makeup application. The scent of this very pleasant, its not too strong just a mild sort of floral scent.
The star ingredients are silk crystal and cold pressed hemp seed oil
 Silk crystal has the ability to promote collagen production, helps skin regeneration filter UV radiations and has strong moisturizing properties
While hemp seed oil is a super food with contains fatty acids vitamin A, E , omega 3 and omega 6  fatty acid so its perfect for giving moisturizer, anti oxidant and wrinkle care. This heals skins so for people who have atopic dermatitis or eczema or sensitive skin this is perfect

What I love about this product is that it does not feel heavy on the skin. In fact this is so light weight( something quite astonishing for a product which contains hemp seed oil) it absorbs into the skin within seconds. I really like the moisturized yet matte finish I get after using this product.
I am thoroughly impressed with this product and would highly recommend you to try this product. Even if you don't use sheet masks you can still use this as an essence so its a skin product with can be used in multiple ways

this is available for 38,500 won on yooheeco website here

If you are fan of Korean beauty and skincare then I am sure you must know Lisa of Beauty Bemused. She recently launched her very own online korean store by the name of Bemused Korea what differentiates this online shop from the rest is that instead of finding all the popular Korean skincare and makeup brands you can actually purchase some really nice hard to find brands like 107oseven, A BY BOM cosmetics and merbliss korea etc.
I have seen reviews of the store by many people and really like how they send the parcel in pretty packaging so it feels more like opening a gift
Lisa was very generous and sent me two kinds of sheet mask by Merbliss to try you can have a look at the package below
Isn't the pink and silver confetti cute ❤
Now I haven't personally tried out any thing by Merbliss so far but I have been following them on instagram and wow I cant believe Ahn Jae-hyun  is currently endorsing this brand( incase you cant remember he was one of the leads in Korean drama "Blood" "Cinderella and the four knights" and also starred in "You who came from the stars"
Enough of that fan girl moment lets get on to the review 😁
MERBLISS Intense Hydration Coating Nude Seal mask (WEDDING DRESS)
This mask retails for 3$ each and can be purchased in a box of 5
Its is a 100% natural sheet mask and contains 25ml of serum in it
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Methylpropanediol, Butylene Glycol, Caviar Extract, Pearl Powder, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Glyceryl Acrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Propylene Glycol, PVM/MA Copolymer, Trehalose, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Panthenol, Carbomer, Arginine, Disodium EDTA, Allantoin, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Chlorphenesin, Glycyrrhiza Galbra (Licorice) Root Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Schizandra Chinensis Fruit Extract, Coptis Japonica Root Extract, Zinziber Officinale (Ginger) Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Extract, Acorus Calamus Root Extract, Perilla Ocymoides Leaf Extract, Fragrance
The outer packaging is matte and has a cute white wedding dress printed on it. The claims are simple skin brightening and hydration to get that bride like glow 😍
After tearing open the foil I was met with a mild pleasant scent ( don't be alarmed its very mild and vanishes in a minute or two)

As the name suggests this nude seal mask has a light thin sheet mask (0.21mm) with a protective white plastic cover to retain it's shape
The mask is drenched in a thick viscous transparent serum. I squeezed out the excess serum before hand for later use
The fit if this mask is good. I have a small face so adjusting sheetmasks is a little tricky for me but this one adhered well to the skin.( I roamed around the house without any fear 😅 ). I improvised on the instructions and wore this for 50 minutes because
1. Its winter and my skin is feeling dry
2. This mask felt so nice so I didn't felt like taking it off after 20 mins
What surprised me was the fact that even after 50 minutes the sheet was moist( don't know if its because of winter or perhaps this particular sheetmask has the ability to retain more moisture than an average sheetmask
Anyways after taking it off the remaining serum absorbed on its own without any external effort aka patting 😆

I really liked how my skin looked matte but glowy without the greasy or tacky feel it was soft and hydrated. I can totally agree on the brightening part (my skin didn't look its usually dull self). Super impressed with its performance 5/5

MERBLISS Intense Soothing Gauze Seal mask ( Nurse Healing)
100% Natural sheet mask. This has a scent similar to the Merbliss wedding mask but what sets this mask different from all the mask I have tried out in past is that its made of gauze. Now I am a medical student so you know I get to use gauze a lot in hospital but the texture of particular gauze make is different. Its strong so it does not tears apart no matter how much pull it around to adjust it on your face.
Ingredients:  Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Niacinamide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Hydroxyacetophenone, Hydroxyethylcellulose, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Trehalose, Chlorphenesin, Allantoin, Arginine, Carbomer, Dipropylene Glycol, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol, Fragrance, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Glyceryl Acrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, PVM/MA Copolymer, Melaleuca Althernifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (matricaria) Flower Extract, Mentha Piperita (peppermint) Leaf Extract, Diamond Powder, Centella Asiatica Extract, Bambusa Vulgaris Extract, Pinus Densiflora Leaf Extract, Thuja Orientalis Extract,Chamaecyparis Obtusa Leaf Extract, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Phenoxtethanol
The gauze soaks up a lot more product than an average sheet mask so this remains moist for a really long time. I hung this mask up to see how long it took for it to dry and was super surprised when it dried up after 2hrs cool right.

I wore this mask for 40 minutes and then massaged the sheet on my arms and neck ( there is still a little serum in the foil so I am going to use it later)
Unlike the Merbliss Wedding Mask this gives hydration , moisture and nutrition. The serum takes some time to dry down but one its all absorbed the skin feels soft minus the tacky greasy feel. I liked how my skin felt plump and soft. This is perfect for all skin types ( mine is oily acne prone) I would have loved to write mmom'sms thoughts on this but she is hesitant to use sheet mask in winters ( she is afraid she might catch cold)
Nonetheless these masks are definitely one of the best masks I have tried and have made it to my special sheet masks list.
Even though these masks were sent for review my opinion would have been same even if I would have purchased these with my own money
these masks can be purchased at bemused korea website here

[Review] Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder

November 11, 2017 1
Ever since I have started following Korean makeup trends. My craze off having super matte skin has finally died down. Now I look for formulas which can help me achieve that subtle glow.
still that does not means that I don't use powder makeup products
I purchases this cult favorite loose powder by Innisfree called the No Sebum powder X Emoji edition ( its a limited edition)
As you can already see the packaging is super adorable. There are a lot of options I choose the blushing emoji. The container is sturdy and is small m it contains about 5gm of powder which initially looks quite less but trust me I have been using this for months and its still looks barely used at all. There is a cute yellow puff included with it m inside the is a plastic guard with small square holes punched to allow small amount of powder to come through
I love how finely milled this powder is. It has a faint very refreshing mint scent which lingers for few minutes. This product does not leave a white cast what so ever on the face but be warned that it flashes back on flash photography
I like to dust this all over my fave during summer time because that's when my T-zone produces the oil most and thanks to super humid and hot summers that we get in Pakistan I set my makeup with this to prevent it from melting and smudging.
in winters I like to dust this only on my nose and forehead for that soft matte look.
I can clearly see why this powder is popular all over Asian beauty community. This powder is affordable and easily available at many reputable online stores.
there are a lot of fake look alike copies of this powder circulating on internet and stores so be careful before making a purchase

I purchase mine from the skin maskeurade

Leegeeham HOPE 5 α- Control cream

November 10, 2017 1
I was sent this cream courtesy Leegeeham by Ms Aileen for review purpose

 A moisturizing cream specially designed for oily skin I was very curious because it contains 5 alpha hydroxy acid a chemical compound used to inhibit the action of 5 α reductase the main culprit of excess oil/sebum production and Hirsutism ( excess hair growth) in females
Just like the Hyal B5 cream this is cased in a very sturdy travel friendly container. There is a protective lid to keep the product from spilling and maintain its freshness
This cream has a faint propolis like scent which is good because I was afraid it might smell have that chemistry lab like scent 😳
The texture of this cream is a somewhat like a lotion its viscous and feels like a emulsion/ lotion.

Now I have been using my favourite green tea cream for 2 yrs straight because it absorbs immediately into the skin giving a matte finish so I had the same concept of matte akin in my mind but I was quite surprised when I applied this onto my skin
Instead of absorbing immediately this took about 5 minutes and instead of leaving that matte/ dry skin . It made my skin feel so and satin like. Moreover my makeup went on so much smoothly afterwards. What I have deduced after using this for almost a month is that this cream restores the moisture which an oily skin needs ( something which many of us oily skin people are guilty of) so this in return regulates sebum product and the skin does not feels the need to produce more oil

My experience with heavy creams have not been pleasant in the past but this one is definitely a product made after a lot of research. This does not clog up pores, cause breakout more exacerbate pimples.
The ingredient list and instructions are printed both in English and Hangul (Korean) on the box
Since the cream is on pricier side I suggest you to use a spatula to scoop out cream so that no extra bacteria is introduces in the cream( hygiene comes first)
I searched for skincare products containing 5 α-Hydroxy acids and I didn't found many so this is a one of its kind product which controls excess sebum production.
Do you know leegeeham has more product in this range. You can know more  by clicking here
