Festive Glitter


When Christmas time comes around, everyone starts feeling festive! It’s time to break out the glitter and even though I don’t celebrate Christmas, I enjoy glitter! The easiest way to incorporate it into your makeup, is by using eye liner! Take a look at some of my favourite picks:

20131217-154054.jpg

I’ve tried to include as many different colours as I can! These shades are definitely my favourite and ones that I use all of the time!

20131217-154241.jpg
* Collection Eyeshadow Pencil in ‘Denim Diva’
This isn’t even meant to be an eyeliner but I love drawing a line on my lash line and blending it out! It’s a beautiful cold blue colour with a lighter blue glitter running through it. It has amazing longevity and looks amazing with any eye colour.. It’s a super festive colour, too!

20131217-154248.jpg
* KIKO Super Colour Eyeliner in ‘110’
I go on about these eyeliners a lot but I truly love them! This shade is a beautiful purple colour with glitter running through it! I love using these on my too lash line and also smudging them under my eye too! It’s a gorgeous deep purple and is really long lasting.. As the name suggests!

20131217-154255.jpg
* KIKO Super Colour Eyeliner in ‘102’
For the same reasons above, I love this eyeliner too! Because it’s a liquid, you can get real precision and the brush is immaculate for drawing on the eyes! This brown is a gorgeous rich brown and perfect for those people who want to try something other than black! It has a gold glitter running through it and often looks like a copper colour in some lights.

20131217-154302.jpg
*AVON Supershock Gel Eyeliner in ‘Blackberry’
I’ve loved this colour for years and I can never get ahold of another pencil in this shade so sparingly use this one! This is a fantastic deep burgundy with a red glitter running through it and although the colour initially sounds scary, it looks amazing! This is another one for those of us who are used to black eyeliner.. It makes a gorgeous change to wearing black because of its subtlety! It’s really long lasting and creamy, too!

20131217-154309.jpg
* Barry M Kohl Pencil in ’10’
I bought these recently and have already got so much use of them! This gold colour is definitely one of my favourite! One that would look great on darker skin tones but suits anyone! These are creamy and long lasting and add a gorgeous pop of colour without looking too OTT! I love applying a black eyeliner and then this on top, on my waterline which gives me eyes definition and a pop of colour at the same time!

20131217-154317.jpg
* KIKO Perfect Eyes Duo Highlighter Pencil
This pencil is actually meant to be used on the brow bone one as a highlighter pencil but I love using this on my inner corner, cheekbones and even on my eyelid as an all over colour! This trick is great for those people who don’t wear eyeliner but still want a subtle shimmer! Just dab this on the areas of your eyes where you want some brightness and rock!

20131217-154323.jpg
* INIKA Certified Organic Eyeliner in Green Lagoon
It’s not often I whip out this colour because I’m not usually a fan of frosty colour but this green definitely gets my blood pumping in Winter! It’s a beautiful aqua shade which has a mega frosty finish! It’s not the smoothest pencil but after warming it up with a hair dryer or in my hands, it’s fairly easy to use and I love applying this with a black on my waterline or just above my black winged eyeliner for a pop of colour on my eyelid!

Autumn beauty favourites


I love me some cold weather, hence why you’ll notice a lot of blog posts about the weather this time of year! I like to stick to some staple pieces throughout autumn and here they are:

20131101-180449.jpg

20131101-180459.jpg
Avon super shock gel eyeliner ‘Blackberry’ – £6
When it comes to eyeliner, I’m the Queen! I have tonnes of colours and it’s my ‘go-to’ for when I want to add colour to my face! I like using black but during autumn, I like to use a slightly more warmer colour and a deep red is perfect for that. I have brown eyes, so using brown and red tones compliments them a lot and oxblood, maroon and scarlet are the top autumn colours! This eyeliner is so long lasting and it’s super pigmented! It’s actually a really deep purple colour with intense red glitter in it hence the shade- blackberry. Has superb lasting time and is super pigmented too! I love using this on the waterline and smudging into my top lashes when I want extra smoke (as shown in image above).

20131102-170321.jpg

20131102-170501.jpg
Accessorize Merged Baked Blusher ‘Scandal’ – £5
** Currently not available on their website
When I first purchased this blusher Miss. A one day, I knew if love it! It’s a gorgeous metallic-looking dusty pink! I applied it to my cheeks when I was quite tanned and to be honest, it was almost invisible. Then when I tried using it as my tan wore off, it began to look better and better! It has a gorgeous sheen which doesn’t look like glitter at all and is so pigmented.. Even though it’s baked, it has a lot of depth to it and isn’t a flat colour! It’s smooth to apply and although I first thought it wouldn’t look good as a blusher on darker skin, it adds a gorgeous glow when used as a highlight! I love this stuff and because it’s so valuable, I love it even more! It’s perfect for adding a glow to your skin during the drier months!

20131102-171414.jpg

20131102-171533.jpg
Maybelline Forever Strong Pro ‘Midnight Red’ – £4.09
Ok let’s just appreciate how beautiful this nail varnish is! I love it for adding a bit of colour to the hands! It’s really long lasting and lasts like a gel meaning it doesn’t chip at all and had a high gloss finish! I really like the brush and colour pay off, too! It’s as cheap as chips and Maybelline is available in any country.. WOOHOO!

20131102-180722.jpg

20131102-180754.jpg
Bourjois Shine Edition ’23’ – £7.99
When this range of lipsticks came out, I was so excited to try a few and I grabbed them as soon as I can! The colours I chose were very autumnal and this one is by far and beyond, one of my favourites! I really like red and purple tones and this combines both if my loves! It really is shiny and has a real glossy look to it on your lips. It’s super pigmented and all thought not very long lasting, it is super easy to top up! It’s good value for money and they have a great colour range too.. Definitely one to check out!

20131102-181549.jpg

20131102-181601.jpg
MAC Sheertone Blush ‘Breath of Plum’ – £18
I like bright blushers and I definitely cannot have a face without it! So when I saw this shade earlier on this year, I knew I’d love using it in autumn! It’s sheer, so isn’t a strong rush of purple colour which would look odd and so adds a deep colour without looking dark! It’s a good change from the bright shades because deep colours look better on pale and cold looking skin! It’s soft to touch and is super finely milled colour.. Superb!

20131102-182122.jpg

20131102-182132.jpg
KIKO Eyeshadow ‘133’ – £1.99
When I bought this eyeshadow, I wanted to use it as a blending colour when doing dark smokey eyes, but I love it so much as a smokey shade alone, it’s become a staple for autumn for me! It’s a deep burgundy colour with a copper undertone! It looks super nice mixed with the Avon eyeliner, and it matches so well! It is really pigmented and is soft and smooth to blend! I love this shade for autumn heaps and bounds!

20131102-183725.jpg

20131102-183746.jpg
Real Techniques ‘Expert Face’ Brush – £9.99
The hype of Real Techniques brushes is so high at the moment and it’s evident why when you use this brush! It’s a dense and stuff synthetic brush which is slightly oval shape! It’s so good to use with cream products and heavy powdering! Apply blush, highlighter, bronzer, contour, foundation, concealer and even powder with this brush and your makeup will look flawless! It’s as cheap as chips and lasts so well even after washing! I love using this brush as much as possible and for most of the face products listed above, this brush works perfectly!

Cheaper versions of high end products.. DUPES!


I’d just like to start this blog post by saying COME ON YOU DEVILS!!! Roooooo-bin Vaaaaaa-an Perrrr-siee! That’s Manchester United’s little miracle because they won THE TITLE.. For those of you wondering :)

20130422-234433.jpg

When it comes to high end products, they cost way too much to justify sometimes and I don’t see why those of us with lower budgets should miss out! So here’s a list of my favourite products with cheaper versions!

Laura Mercier Mineralised Powder is the exact same consistency and coverage as Rimmel Stay Matte powder! Obviously the two colours shown are different but they look the exact same on!
Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed powder in Real Sands: £31
Rimmel Stay Matte: £3.99

20130422-234824.jpg
20130422-235918.jpg

Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner has a gorgeous creamy consistency and is super black! It glides on and stays on! Elizabeth Arden is completely black too and although glides on, it smudges and smears and I don’t think it looks as nice and crisp as the Avon!
Elizabeth Arden eye liner in smokey black: £16
Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner in black: £6

20130423-000006.jpg

20130423-000021.jpg

Everyone should have a nude or dark-ish kind of of lip liner to enhance your lips! I love the consistency of the Elizabeth Arden one but the LA colours one has a lovely colour which looks good when worn all over the lips too!
Elizabeth Arden lip liner in Taupe: £16
LA Colours lip liner in P512 Natural: £1

20130423-000221.jpg

20130423-000227.jpg

NARS Sheer Glow foundation is my absolute favourite! I love the way it looks and the staying power is amazing! I found a good dupe in the way of Bourjois Bio Detox which feels and looks the same! I love wearing the Bourjois in winter, hence the darker shade because it looks flawless and doesn’t let you look sweaty.. NICE!
NARS Sheer Glow in Light 4 Deauville: £31
Bourjois Bio Detox in 53: £7.99

20130423-000428.jpg

20130423-000434.jpg

MACs Pink Swoon has been my first and most favourite blush from MAC ever! And when I found this 17 one in Boots for a fraction of the price, I was in awe! They’re both silky and look the exact same on the cheeks! Fresh and pink ready for Spring!
MAC Pink Swoon: £17.50
17 Blusher in China Pink: £3.49

20130423-000741.jpg

20130423-000746.jpg

I love a red lip and I love a decent gloss so when I got this sample size of Elizabeth Arden lip gloss, I fell in love! This Beauty UK one is the exact same consistency, if not even more opaque! They look fantastic on the lips! YUMMY!
Elizabeth Arden lipgloss in Golden Red: £16
Beauty UK lip lust in no.10 Moulin Rouge: £2.99

20130423-000941.jpg

20130423-000948.jpg

Who doesn’t like a pink lip??? It looks good on everyone! When I went to Paris, I wore this pink lipstick by YSL everyday and me and Miss. A couldn’t help stare at it constantly! Then I saw this MUA lipstick and it looked so similar and is even more creamy! Where the YSL is a gloss, the MUA is creamy!
YSL Rouge Pure Shine lipstick in Tuxedo Pink: £22.50
MUA lipstick in Shade 3: £1

20130423-001145.jpg

20130423-001151.jpg

I’ve truly saved the best until last! This urban Decay Naked palette is the most raved about product in the beauty industry! When I saw this MUA palette, I saw how similar it was.. In fact it’s the EXACT SAME! You’d be silly to buy the Urban Decay for such a high price when the MUA has the same pay off for so much cheaper!
Urban Decay Naked palette: £32
MUA Undressed palette: £4

£20 make up challenge!!!


20120820-214507.jpg
OK!!!! So a little heads up!!!!

1.) Some of these products I had bought a long time ago! The prices were correct then, but I’ve double checked them and they’ve gone up (uh hum.. SLEEK!!!! :O £7.99 for a palette)!

2.) Some of the products are only available online but I’m assuming everyone who can read a blog has access to the Internet :D

3.) Some of the products can only be bought in store! They’re not available on the website!

4.) Most of the products can only be bought in the UK! Sorry all my foreign friends! Perhaps a new post coming up with international products ;)

LET’S GET CRACKING!

20120820-214527.jpg

Now when I wear make up, I want something minimal, easy to wear/ apply and really cheap! When I’m using something everyday, I don’t want to have to spend £30 every month to get a new mascara! All the high end products I get generally last out longer (e.g. Don’t dry up, have more product etc) so they’ll keep.

If you live in the UK, I didn’t want to use MUA! A king of ELF to all my international bloggers out there! Everything is £1 at MUA! I feel using their products in a challenge limited to money, is cheating!

1 more thing.. WHEN THE F&;:73&/& DID SLEEK MAKE THEIR PALETTES £7.99! They were £6!!!! They’ve gone up by £1.99 in a year.. NOT GOOD! That made me go over budget! That’s another thing my worldwide readers, everything in the UK is more expensive thanks to our taxes! For e.g. NYX is made in Sheffield in the UK but because it’s an American brand, it costs almost twice as much :O

So here’s the look!

20120820-211534.jpg

And the products used and their prices:

  • Collection 2000 Cover Up Stick
    I couldn’t find the price or the product anywhere online but I bought it a year ago for £1.99! I used this almost as a foundation because I didn’t have many blemishes so didn’t feel the need for foundation.. Which is something I often do!! ALSO! If I have a fresh spot/ zit, I never cover it with make up because I think blemishes under make up look awful and protruding and also because it’s bad for the acne!
  • 20120820-213106.jpg
    Collection 2000 cover up stick in Light Translucent 1

  • Sleek Ultra Mattes Dark palette
    This used to cost £6 but I recently saw the price at £7.99 online! Hopefully, this will go down once they notice no British person would pay £2 more for a product that hasn’t changed.. RIP OFF! The pigmentation of these are great! The colours are versatile from day to night and they have a lovely, blend able texture! Plus there’s tonnes of palettes and you get 12 colours in a palette!
  • 20120820-213126.jpg
    Sleek Eye shadow palette in Ultra Mattes dark

  • Avon supershock gel pencil liner
    This cost me £3 because I saw it on offer in the Avon catalogue once at half price, which they do almost every year! When you do see them on offer, grab them because they’re wonderfully creamy and ultra pigmented! The best black I’ve ever seen!
  • 20120820-213045.jpg
    Avon SuperShock gel eyeliner pencil in black

  • Wilkinson volume mascara
    It’s £1 and quite good actually! It does get really crispy though! Ensure that if you like applying a few coats of mascara then you don’t let this mascara dry on your lashes before applying another coat! When it dries, it can be coated no more! No momma!
  • 20120820-213053.jpg
    Wilkinson Volume lash in black

    20120820-214519.jpg
    The eye make up

  • Barbara Daly moisturising lipstick
    The colour I got was watermelon and this costs £5! Rimmel also do a very cheap lipstick which costs £2.99 but they’re so horrible, I won’t go there ;) This is available in Tesco stores and it’s lovely! Really creamy and quite well pigmented
  • 20120820-213100.jpg
    Barbara Daly moisturising lipstick in Watermelon

  • Collection 2000 eye shadow
    This is a single eye shadow which costs £1.99! It’s not an eye shadow for me.. It’s a blush! Why not mayn! It’s an amazing colour on the cheeks! It looks rosy and has amazing colour pay off which I’ve highlighted in the image!
  • 20120820-213120.jpg
    Collection 2000 single eye shadow in Viva Vegas 006

    EID!!!


    Let me give you a run downnnnnn!!
    I blogged all day throughout Eid of te main things I wore and done, but let’s share in a little more detail, shall we :)

    So my make up and clothes I already showed many of you guys! Unfortunately, in all the pictures that were taken, my hair was out so I don’t have a picture of me wearing my outfits! I wore 2! Simply because I had guests over at my house and then went out later!

    My first outfit! A light beige colour with real embroidery! I live this lightweight suit and it manages to look demure but still young

    20120820-183412.jpg

    The second outfit was for when I went to my uncles house! It had a lot more beading and detail and I loved the nude colour! It also kept me very cool! The earrings are from Debenhams and the shoes from New Look for £19.99

    EID MUBARAK!!!! Food!


    This year we all decided to have a BBQ because the weather was amazing! There’s a lot of meat on the menu! We have Chicken, lamb, beef and fish too! We’re all carnivores in my family

    and there’s nothing more we love better than a spicy stake! Please don’t be defended my fellow vegetarians.. We had halloumi!

    There’s a lot of food here, so take a look and if your mouth waters, it smells and tastes as good as it looks! WHOAAAA MOMMAAAA!

    20120819-181543.jpg

    20120819-181535.jpg

    EID MUBARAK!!! Clothes + OOTD


    So obviously, I’m Pakistani!! Well it’s not obvious but now, you know I am! I’m a big fan of the new style of clothes that have come in which are long and baggy because they remind I my abaya! An abaya is my shell! So I love that!

    This is what I’m wearing today! With a complete OOTD for you too!

    Earrings: Debenhams
    Suit: Pakistan
    Shoes: Boutique in Chiswick, London

    Some of you may notice, I don’t go ‘all out’ on Eid! Simply because we’re SOOOO busy and always moving around! So I’d rather be comfortable! Also, Eid is always around my uncles house so we’re at home where we wear no shoes and sit on comfortable sofas! No need for faff!

    EID MUBARAK!!!! Make up


    EID MUBARAKKKKKKKKK!!! This is my first Eid with my fellow WordPress-ers! I’m so excited and happy to spend it with you guys! I’ll try to blog a couple of times today! I’ll include lots of pictures and ensure I give you the low down about our festivities!

    20120819-124438.jpg
    I’ll start with my make up!!!

  • Rimmel hide the blemish concealer.. It’ll lasts all day and makes your skin look flawless!
  • Bit of Nars Sheer glow because it looks fantastic! Makes your skin look healthy and yummy.. Only a bit of foundation though cause the temperature is 31 degrees Celsius!
  • Sleek au Naturel palette mixing the 4 colours at the top middle (highlighted) which gives me a nice even base!
  • Nars laguna! I’m using this perfect mid brown colour to use in the crease to define my eyes and I’ll use it in the hollows of my cheeks too
  • Maybelline colossal volume express mascara for volume and for a big boost to my natural lashes
  • Maybelline eye studio gel eyeliner for a lovely cat eye to enhance me eyes
  • Fasionista gel eye liner! No colour but this looks great on top of the black as it has green glitter in it (not highly pigmented, though, hence the black first)

  • Beauty UK glitter liquid eye liner in gold which looks so nice in the inner corners of your eyes and lash line!
  • Jemma Kidd cream blush in guava! Perfect coral pink
  • Elizabeth Arden Crystal Baby which is a gorgeous sheer and shiny nude pink
