  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick

    I never expected anything good out of Revlon products simply because there was never much hype about them, especially their lipsticks. I went out and bought this in Revlon Red and I must say while I'm not loving the formula I am quite happy to have finally found a red that suits my Pakistani skin tone.

  • Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Shampoo

    This is just one of those shampoos that removes all the gunk from your hair and leaves no build up behind. The fact that this is clear and see through shows that there isn't any trace of unnecessary conditioners for those with oily hair or limp hair. Just do this : Wash your hair with this and add the stripped moisture back in with your favourite conditioner. Always helps with the build up :)

  • Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chcoolate & Cherry Lip Butter

    Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chcoolate & Cherry Lip Butter

    One of the best lip balms on the market

    I have never had good luck with lip balms especially drugstore brands such as Vaseline, Nivea and even the cliche Labello. This brand caught my eye after a few recommendations and I decided to buy this one. I reached home after a long day, washed my face and applied some of this lip balm. Let me say this : WOW I expected the same old cliche for lip balms which is thick, gloppy and dries with a crust, however, I was fortunately surprised by this one. I got the one in dark chocolate and cherry and it smelled good enough to eat which I do not recommend. The delicious and sinful smell of freshly baked chocolate cake wafted up to my nostrils and I was delightfully relaxed! What I love about this balm is that it remains moist on your lips without drying with a white, repulsive crust. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a cheap but effective lip balm on the market!

  • Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Makeup Lip Gloss

    I love VS! But I really dont know what happened here. My aunt gifted me these and while I pretended to love them, God they're so bad! I have tried so hard to love these. My problem is not at all with the colour pigmentation but the formula! It feels icky and sticky and waxy on my lips. Even if I put the slightest amount of this, hours later it dries crusty on my lips. I really love the packaging and the colour and the slight shimmer in these glosses but I would bid them to rethink their formula!

  • Rimmel London Exaggerate Liquid Eye Liner

    My everyday look consists of a clean, winged eyeliner and this liner has helped me perfect it! I bought this on a spur of the moment haul and boy was I glad I did! Since then, I've gone through 3 of these! I would say the price is a bit ridiculous for such a tiny product but there is a lot of product in that tiny bottle. A little goes a really long way! The brush isn't too stiff or too flexible, its just right and you can cleanly make that wing without a lot of worry. However, this can smudge easy and sting your eyes when it is wet. A similar product for this is the Revlon Colorstay liquid liner which is exactly the same but without the smudges and the stings!

  • Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder

    I had everything in my makeup bag except that perfect finishing powder. We all want that one product that would make us look like an airbrushed goddess even in the most humid of wedding seasons. I decided to give this product a try after a lot of debate and can I say : Bang for buck! This was pretty cheap and so I was hesitant as to whether it would hold up as well so I gave it a test run. It was one of those humid nights and I was going out. Put this on with a large fluffy brush at around 9pm. Checked again by 12 and voila I was still not oily but perfectly dewy! Got this in translucent since I am never sure of my skintone! Great finishing powder for something as cheap as this!

  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

    I've always considered Maybelline the holy grail of mascaras and I'm always lookin' out for new ones. Honestly, what attracted me to this mascara was its packaging ;) I had tried the original Volum' Express mascara in the black tube with the silver cap as well as the Colossal. I have super long but sparse lashes so any volume without overly elongating my lashes is welcome. The original Volum' Express super hard-gelled my lashes towards the sky making me look like some kind of freak! The Colossal hardly worked on my lashes and I thought it was too clumpy. Needed something between wet and dry and this was my true calling. I love the brush and its surprising how you can actually use it both ways and you still get the same results. My lashes were prominently lifted and flared but not overly black and shiny and wet. It does not clump at all although NOTE dont build this mascara up. This is NOT a build-friendly mascara, it will clump and dry your lashes out causing it to flake. One round of short flicks should do it ;)

  • NYX Cosmetics NYX Lip Gloss with Mega Shine

    I really love this line of glosses. What's not to love? They're shiny, not at all sticky and smell so yummy I could eat them off! However, a little word of advice to those who want to try it out, get a shade closer to your lip shade, the colour payoff of these glosses isn't the greatest hence you will get the gloss but not as much the colour that is shown in the tube. I have this in Candy Shop which is a peachy nude and it does not show up on the lips as much as I would have wanted it to. However, top it off over your favourite nude lipstick and you're good to go! It does not have a good lasting power however but all the more reason to smell the gloss again and again. I bought that one tube last year and have been using it since then. Not even a dent has been made! One of the best drugstore lip glosses!

  • NYX Cosmetics NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

    I cannot praise this product more in my life. It has everything I've always wanted in a product : matte finish, creamy but not sheeny finish, amazing colour payoff, buildable. I bought this in Antwerp, a light coral colour which goes on all skin tones from what I've heard. I love how it perks up my complexion even when Im not wearing makeup and wearing only this with a little bit of eyeliner. Would I buy these again? Maybe all of them!

  • Avon Perfect Wear Extralasting Lipstick

    I'm not a fan of this lipstick as it is quite matte and drying on my lips but that can always be made up for with some lip balm. The pigmentation of this lipstick is great actually, I have the colour Eternal Flame which is a deep muted red. The only downside for me is I cannot apply this lipstick without a mirror or a lip brush as it is quite thinner than usual lipsticks. But all in all, worth a try if you want a long lasting lipstick with good colour payoff.
