Review :Maybelline Eye Studio Eyeshadow Duo in Lilac Lolita

Summer is right here and its time to take out your breezy outfits in soft and pastel colors. I love wearing pastels in summer and this is the one reason that i picked  Maybelline eyestudio eyeshadow duo in lilac lolita last summer. Due to my pregnancy and then looking after a newborn baby, i could not use it before. It was there in my stash until noticed it few days back. I have used it few times and its already a winner for me. Lets see why it won my heart.
Maybelline Eye Studio Eyeshadow Duo in Lilac Lolita
It comes in a square plastic case with transparent lid. No mirror or applicator brush is present. I liked that the packaging is travel friendly and fits any of my makeup bags easily. Its a limited edition shade and called as Lilac Lolita 50.

Maybelline Eye Studio Eyeshadow Duo in Lilac Lolita
 My Experience:
I really likeits name. Its very feminine. Lolita reminds me of an epic lovestory. It has two shades of baked eyeshadows. One is pale lilac which appears to be pearl white in these swatches.It works as a highlighter for me. The other one is marbelized one with lavender and grey texture. Both have satin finish. The formula is very silky to touch and fall out is minimal.  You can mix and match both shades to get what you desire. I like wearing pastels alot during summers and this is one reason that i love it too much. Color pay off is good and blends without much effort. They lasts for a good 4 to 5 hours on my eyes without any primer. You can also increase color intensity and weartime by using a eyeshadow primer before. Here is the swatch below:

 Overall, its a good product by maybelline. I would love to buy few more shades of this range. I bought it for Rs.700 from local market.

Do you own any of the maybelline eyestudio eyeshadow duo ? What colors do you wear during summers ? Please share your experiences with me.

My shopping experience with

I believe you can transform yourself into fashion diva by just putting on right accessories on the right occassion. Jewelry has the power to enhance your whole look. What could be better if you get these accessories on affordable prices. I was offered a gift card valued 25$ to be spend on, an online store selling huge collection of clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry and everything that a girl need. I googled about them and found that they have got many negative reviews. I decided to give them a try and promised myself that would share my honest opinion about them whatsoever. I went through their huge collection of products and ordered few jewelry items.
Lets see what i have to say about them.
Jewelry haul from
I placed my order on 3rd April and received my package on 8th is based in china and i live in Pakistan. Yes , it was very quick and right on time. They provided me tracking number ,even i did not pay any of the shipping charges as all the jewelry items are listed as free shipping items on their website. I did not have to pay customs duty on this package as well.

All jewelry items were neatly packed seperately in transparent plastic bags and comes without any damage. But i think they should also wrap these in bubble wraps to prevent any accidiential damages.
my shopping experience with
Product Quality:
I was afraid that the quality would not be good. But i was wrong. Everything is perfect and neatly made. Only one flower earrings has a stain on its petal. As it was selected from sale items, i can ignore this minor flaw easily. I selected two necklaces , two earrings and one bracelet.

1. Retro Style Color Block Triangle Design Pendant Women's Necklace
This is my favorite necklace. Its so chich and trendy. I was instantly fallen in love with it the moment i saw it on their website. I got many compliments when i wore it on a casual day out with my friends. Its light weight, neatly made and so chic. The black and white design looks really cool.

 2. Stylish Drop Rhinestone Skeleton Beads Bracelet
 I love charms bracelets. It has multilayers and several charms including ring, snowflake, skeleton, pearls and a big pendant emerald gemstone which looks beautiful. I can wear it with many of outfits. All charms and rhinestones are inlaid beautifully and looks perfect.

 This gorgeous beauty is made of alloy and looks very elegant and classy. It has oval shaped emerald gemstone which is shiny and inlaid perfectly. The alloy metal chain is chunky which looks very modern and chic. This is something i would like to wear on formal dinners or wedding parties.

4. Corean Lovely and Fashion Style Flower Pattern Design Earrings & Elegant Modern Style Round Opals Decorated Alloy Bowknot Drop Earrings For Women
 These are the one with a stain mark on its white part. I selected it from sale items. I wish if it was neatly made as i like floral patterns very much. On the other hand, the delicate bow and cute opals won my heart in first sight. These are light weight and so chic. I love bows and i love these too.
Can you see a spot on flower earrings?

Overall, it was a good experience. The customer service representative was prompt in replying my queries. The shipping process hardly took one week to arrive in Pakistan from China. Product quality is good and matches with the pictures provided on their website.

Review: Glamorous Face Matte Waterproof Eyeliner

I want my eyeliner to be blackest black, smudge proof, and stay put for long hours. It could not be better if it comes with a cheap price tag. Lets see if Glamorous Face Matte Waterproof eyeliner fulfills my needs or not.

Glamorous Face Matte Eyeliner in black

The packaging is very simple and sleek. It comes in a black tube which is very travel friendly and fits in any of my makeup pouch or clutch easily. I am very glad to see that they have mentioned ingredients and expiry date too on the tube.Its also stated that its a HALAL product, in case you are curious about that. I wish if it was ophthalmologically tested too. So i could wear it more often or with my contacts lenses too. The brush wand is long enough for precise application. 

can you spot word HALAL on it?
My Experience:
The liner brush tip is very thin and flexible which effortlessly draws thin or thick lines around eyes. The color is a matte black just the way i like it. What bothers me is its synthetic smell which goes away within few minutes of application. It dries quickly so i do not need to close my eyes longer and wait. After it dries, It feels like i have pasted something on my eyes and my lashes or lids are stretching. The waterproof claim is partially true. The eyeliner is smudge proof but not waterproof. It does comes off easily if you rub it with water but does not smudge or give raccoon eyes. It comes off like some paint or thin plastic particles. I have been wearing it to some parties and casual day outs in summer heat and it bears it all. It makes it an everyday eyeliner but on special occasions or summer day outs. I would rather go for my other waterproof eyeliner. Here is the swatch :
Glamorous Face Matte Waterproof Eyeliner in Black : swatch

My Recommendations:
Overall, i have mix feelings for this eyeliner. It partially does what it claims. If you are looking for something cheaper then you may like it. I would rate it 3/5

Rs. 150

Available in local markets shops easily, I bought it from Aghaaz supermarket, near gulshan.

Medora Matte Lipsticks , Review & Swatches

This is one product that i wanted to own for ages. Everybody had it, everyone talks about it but i do not own it, isnt it enough to make you feel envious ? Finally i got my hands on two shades of Medora Matte lipsticks. Lets have a look.
Medora matte lipsticks in Fiesta and Full Fuchsia left to right
Packaging :
It comes in a cardboard packaging which is grey in color.The lipstick bullet is grey and golden, which looks decent if you keep cheap price tag in mind. I paid 120 Rs. for each. The ingredients list is not included on the cardboard packaging which is a minus point for me as i am really curious about ingredients.
Medora Matte lipstick Full Fuchsia and Fiesta-
  I am glad that these have proper names along with numbers and matching tags on the bottom side on both cardboard and lipstick tubes. These tags are very similar to the actual shade, so it makes these very practical while organizing your makeup stash or when you need to find them in hurry.
 My Experience:
Medora of london is not a new brand. Its been there for ages but i have never got a chance to try them. After reading rave reviews on other blogs i decided to give them a try. I must say the color range is very bright and youthful. I picked two colors. First one is Fiesta , it is a warm rose pink which looks so good against my warm beige complexion. Its a great everyday kind of pink which just brightens up my face. The texture is matte and dry. I would recommend you to wear a lip balm if you have dry lips as it may makes them drier. They lasts for a good 3-4 hours leaving a pretty pink stain behind.
The Full fuchsia is more creamier than fiesta. It glides on smoothly and does not need a lip balm underneath. The color is very youthful and bright. Its a true fuchsia color. I do not have any shade similar to this, so i am very happy that i picked it up. If you like bright lippies , you would love it for sure.
The coverage of both lipsticks is opaque. Here are the swatches of both.
left to right: Fiesta and Full Fuchsia
swatches left to right: Fiesta and Full Fuchsia

My recommendation:
In my opinion if you are on a budget and looking for an affordable alternative for pretty and fashionable lip colors, you can give them a try. I wish if they could mention ingredients too so i can use them for often without suspicious in mind.

Price & Availability:
Rs.120 each and available at most of the local markets , nationwide. Not available outside Pakistan.

My Shopping Experience at

For me , online shopping has always been a pleasure experience. Who wants to go out in this summer heat with a kid showing tantrums every now and then. I love to go to my favorite online store, search for whatever i need to buy and order it and then just relax back and wait for the door bell rings. Just check your order and pay at the time of delivery. No more bargaining sessions with shopkeepers anymore.
Online shopping is a emerging new trend and a need of working people or busy moms like me

Store Review:
 Few days back , i got a voucher worth 1000 Rs. to spend on , which is a mega store selling branded clothes, shoes , cosmetics and what not. They have a wide variety of clothes for kids, men and women. Jewelry, cosmetics and sports good are also included and have a decent range available. You can easily spot big brands like Daaman, Ego, Hushpuppies, Hub leather, Mango etc. But i do feel that they can add more cosmetics brands into their store. The website is very easy to navigate through. You can search items and sort them according to your preference of price, size or colors etc. There are many products on SALE too. So you can buy more and pay less.

My experience:
As summer has already arrived in my part of the world , the lawn fever is going crazy. I looked for latest 2014 lawn collection and fall in love with this single print lawn piece by Orient textile. It was stated that i will be delivered till 2nd april. I added it in my cart, registered on the website using my facebook information and placed the order. Minutes later, i received a call from their representative, confirming my mailing address. They told me that i will receive it on 1st april. I also received a confirmation email with my order number which can also be used for tracking my order.

Yesterday i received my parcel. And everything was perfect. I also received a return form , which can be used if you have got a wrong product delivered. They are offering 7 days return policy. My shopping experience with was hassle free and convenient.
Final words, It was a great experience. I would recommend this store to everyone who wants to shop onlineVisit them today and have a look at .You can also visit their facebook page for more updates.

What have you bought lately for summer season ? share your experiences with me.

Review : L'Oreal Paris Hydra Total 5 Normal Gel Cream

Hi girls, moisturizing is a key for healthy skin. A good moisturizer can make your skin beautiful and glowing. But it can be difficult to select a moisturizer for combination or oily skin as it may break out or makes skin greasy.
Most of the time girls with oily skin skips moisturizer believing that they do not need it. but this is not true. Moisturizer for oily skin is essential. I have got oily skin and it gets more prone to breakout during summer season. Its really difficult to choose a moisturizer which not only keeps skin hydrated and controls shine. Today i have L'Oreal hydra total 5 normal gel cream in spotlight. lets see what i have to say about it.

Product Description :
It comes in a glass jar which looks elegant and holds a decent amount of product. But on the darker side, it is not so travel friendly. I prefer squeeze tubes while travelling. The product is secure with a extra lid cover inside jar cap.

My experience:
I am using this gel cream religiously for one month and I am happy that I found my new love. The texture is gel like, water based and light weight. It penetrates in skin instantly and does not leave any residue. The fragrance is very fresh and energetic. It reminds me of a smoothie made up of cucumbers and lemons. Fragrance lasts for a decent amount of time. It also contains UV filters which makes it an ideal day cream in summers. But I prefer to apply sunscreen separately. My skin looks more lively, toned and hydrated after each use. I love the fact that it makes my skin glowing after regular use. I can see that it hydrates the dry patches on my face and makes skin smoother and toned. It comes with a price tag of 700 rs. Which does not dig a hole in pocket. I must say, i will be using it through out summer season.

Over all , I am very pleased with this product. It does what it claims.

Price and Availability:
Available nationwide for Rs. 699

Yes, if you have combination to oily skin ,its a product worth trying I am sure that you would not regret.

I am planning to try few other products from L'Oreal hydra total 5 range, any recommendations ?
which moisturizer are you using currently , please give me feedback. I love reading your comments.

Review : Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Scrub

Hi to all,
I have been a dedicated fan of St. Ives apricot scrub for years. This time, i decided to try something new so i picked up this one. I have been using this scrub for past one month. Lets see did it make me happy or not.

What it claims :
A complexion enhancing scrub with mild exfoliants that brings out your natural fairness and reveals glowing skin. Licorice and White Dammer help regulate melanin synthesis while Apricot granules gently scrub away dead skin cells, blackheads and deeply embedded impurities. The result is visibly brighter, soft and glowing skin.

Key Ingredients: 

Licorice, White Dammer, Apricot.

 My Experience:
It comes in a squeeze tube which makes it very easy to use and travel friendly. It has a strong floral fragrance which does not bothers me. I kind of like this scent which reminds me of a garden with thousands flowers. The consistency is thick and creamy. It gives a soft smoother feel to skin after each use. It consists apricot granules which are mild and gentle but exfoliates pretty well.I am using it twice a week for one month and it removes blackheads completely from my nose and chin. It also makes my skin texture better. If you have normal to dry skin then this product will work for you. As far as the whitening claim is concerned, it does nothing for it. Personally, i never believe on whitening claims of beauty products. But sadly, it did not brightens up my complexion like many whitening products do.

Over all , its an average product which exfoliates well  ,makes skin soft and supple,but does nothing for skin complexion.

My ratings :
3 out of 5

Price And Availability:
Bought for Rs. 545 from Bin Hashim Pharmacy, Karachi

Repurchase ?

I would rather buy my old favourite St. Ives apricot scrub, my skin loves it.

Have you used this product ? which one is your favourite scrub ? please share your opinion in comments below.

Blog Fest 2012 by piCture pOlish : Dorothy & Illusion , Review & Swatches

Hi girls , Today we are celeberating blog fest 2012 by piCture pOlish . Last year i was given a chance to swatch shade Tango ( post here ) . It was a fun filled activity. This year i was given a chance to swatch two of their new shades Dorothy and Illusion. 
Dorothy is a new addition to their mesh collection, Created for the land of Oz , and i believe it is the most unique and flattering shade so far inspired by the Dorothy. 
Picture Polish : Dorothy - mesh collection
I just love it so much. It reminds me of a newly wed bride or a beautiful decorated christmas tree. It is such an happy and festive shade. It is a cherry red color filled with lots of silver glitter particles . The glitter particles are so dense that i just need to apply two coats for full coverage. It feels a bit gritty when dried . but a top shine coat would help to make it smoother. Here i applied two coats of dorothy without any top coat, just to give you true picture. Isnt it beautiful itself ?
Picture Polish : Dorothy - mesh collection
Its drying time is a bit longer than my usual glitter shades. but i am happy with it because all good things take a bit longer to do !!
Picture Polish : Dorothy - mesh collection
Like all other glitter polishes , it is really hard to remove it too. You have to rub really hard or use the foil method to completely remove it . Otherwise it will create a big mess.
Picture Polish : Dorothy - mesh collection
can you see beautiful glitter particles in the above pictures ? they are really gorgeous.
You can buy this HERE for $9.50.
Picture Polish : Mirage , swatch
Mirage is a part of their Bloggers Collaborations and it was created with Sara Hassan of Sarahassan's blog . The moment i saw this nail color , my heart filled with great pride and love as Sara belongs to Pakistan and i adore her as my mentor in blogosphere..
Picture Polish : Mirage , swatch

Mirage is such a unique shade . its a duochrome shade which looks different in different lighting conditions. I have applied Picture Polish's Marine color as a base coat. as it is recommended to apply a darker color base coat first. It looks teal from certain angle which changes into steal and then plum in certain areas. You can experiment alot with this nail color by applying different base coats. It is very pretty and unique, you should trust me on this.
Picture Polish : Mirage , swatch

The consistency of Mirage is sheerer to other nail colors. That is why it is easily layered over another nail color. I love the way it looks on my nails under sun light.
Picture Polish : Mirage , swatch

Both nails colors lasts on my nails for good 3-4 days without any chip off, which is really impressive. However , i observed that the lasting time of Mirage is lesser than Dorothy.
You can buy Mirage from HERE for $11.50

Which one are you liking the most ? please leave your comments below and share your thoughts about this review.
Lots of Love,

Review & Swatches : Fake Tan & Hot Lips by Picture Polish

Hi girls , today i spent whole day swatching nail colors as the Holy month of Ramzan is going to start from tomorrow and i will not be able to apply nail colors for whole month. Few days back i won Picture Polish facebook sharing competition and i was allowed to select 6 nail colors of my choice. Neon colors are the hottest trend this season .Picture Polish has added six neon colors to their new collection.I picked out two colors FAKE TAN and HOT LIPS ..
the colors are absolutely gorgeous and daring , lets see how they look on my nails. Hot Lips is as sexy as its name and tagline describes. Its a bright pink color which has a creme finish . The formula is a bit sheer than the rest of the Picture polish nail colors i have. I applied two coats here.
I am glad that it looks equally good on my tanned complexion , its a perfect nail polish that i would love to wear on beach or rainy season. It is as sensual as its tagline " pucker up french kiss "

You can buy this nail color from Picture Polish website here for $9.50 .

The second color is Fake tan .As its tagline describes " This one is meant to be orange " , yes it is an orange shade which leans towards yellow. which makes it a bright shade. This shade is really tricky and would suits fairer complexions better.
 It is sheerer than the hot lips that is why i applied three coats here to achieve this look:
You can buy Fake Tan here for $9.50 .
For more details please visit Picture Polish website here .
So , are you following the latest trend by sporting neon colors on your nails ? which one is your favorite ?
