KIKO, Maybelline and Essie Make Up haul!


20130711-232529.jpg

I know I’m a little late with my daily blog posts but hopefully, I’ve managed to adjust my routine what with fasting and everything.. So here goes my first post!!

I recently went to Westfield and couldn’t help but stop off at one of my new favourite make up stores: KIKO! They have amazing quality products and for really good value so I couldn’t resist some of their goodies! Fortunately for me, all of the stuff I liked was on offer in their sale section!

The first thing that caught my eye was this ‘Wet and Dry eyeshadow palette in Holi Vibrations’. I bought a few other palettes from this collection which I hauled in a previous blog post and I love them! These colours are perfect for summer! They’re bright but not too bright and the shimmer will look gorgeous in summer along with those lovely pastel colours! They have fall out but nothing major so HAPPY DAYS!

Wet and Dry eyeshadow palette in Holi Vibrations £8.40

Having tried KIKO’s eye products only, I had a little dabble with these gorgeous blushes they have to offer! I had to get 2 because I could choose! They had a few to choose from but I chose the colours that would suit me beat! I like a subtle blush at the moment (a far cry from my previous look) and these have a beautiful finish.. The beige/gold colour on the end is shimmery so creates a lovely highlighted look!

And just as I was leaving the store, these grabbed my attention! When I tested them on my hand, I knew I’d use these constantly! This lovely lips and cheeks product has a lovely texture and is really well pigmented! They haven’t over-done the pigment because its to be used on the cheek too- I suppose they want their consumers to not look like clowns! I love the texture, the smell (like vanilla!). These completely remind me of Sleek Pout Polishes but are so much better.. In my opinion!

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

    Lip stains!


    20120812-000710.jpg

    Now that it’s getting hotter and the summer days, although almost finished, are as heated as ever, the last thing you want is your gorgeous red lipstick to bleed everywhere! The solution.. STAINS!

    Ok so I have a love/ hate relationship with them because they’re often too drying! But ever since I started carrying a make up bag, I pop my lip balm in my bag and top up whenever I need to! This ensures my lips don’t get dry! Also, during winter, your lips are more likely to be dryer and stains darken up in the chaps of your lips and I’m a fan of flawlessness! So no thanks to that! But in summer when you’re hydrated from swearing and your lips don’t dry as much, stains are your best friend! Here’s all the stains I have and my verdict!

    Maybelline 18 hour colour stay:
    This is one of those stains that come with a lip balm on the other end! I love the colour of this stain! The staying power is AMAZING! It doesn’t last 18 hours but will last you a whole school day/ work day! The only problem is that its SO drying! It feels like your have glue on your lips! It’s a nightmare to get off (cotton bud and baby oil usually does the trick)! But if you love something as strong as duct tape.. This is one is for you! P.S. the lip balm smells amazing! If they sold that alone, I’d get it in a flash!

    Revlon just bitten kissable balm stains:
    WHY DID THEY CALL IT SUCH A LOG NAME!!!??? I love Revlon’s lip products from their lipsticks (same quality as MAC), to their nail varnishes that miraculously never chip! When these stains came out I was so excited! I like stains but like I said, sometimes they’re too drying, so these seemed perfect! The balm wears off after a few hours but still last longer than most stains do! I love their existing colour range and it was hard to choose only a few colours but, I just wish they had more natural shades to choose from! Revlon.. Keep up the good work!

    Maybelline colour sensational:
    These smell absolutely divine! The colours are sheer but buildable! You can really layer them on to a create a desired effect! The colour range is pretty decent, although some natural colours would have been nice too! However.. That’s where the compliments end! The stains have a felt tip applicator! Now this is the best for stains, I find because it won’t clump up, it’s very precise and it’s not messy! But the nib wears out so quickly on this! Ive had my stains for a few months and you can see, it’s not doing well.. I don’t wear these everyday, so it should have lasted longer! The colour wears off after some time and I’m talking about.. Sip of water.. GONE! So has no staying power either! Really.. If you’re a model and only need this on for 1 shot.. Then this is for you! Otherwise uh uh!

    Body shop lip and cheek stain:
    I go on about this all the time! I love this on the cheeks because it lasts so long! Honestly, I haven’t tried it on my lips for long enough to tell you what I think of it! I think I’ll find it too sheer for me! The colour didn’t show up well when I tried it once before! If you have very pale lips and want a hint of colour, this is perfect for you!

    Revlon just bitten lip stains:
    WOWOWOWOWOW! The staying power of this stain is incredible! It will literally last you the whole day! I remember when I needed to go out once, I wore this all night whilst I slept and when I woke up, it was STILL THERE and I didn’t need to too up for the rest of the day! The color range again is limited.. Perhaps I’m being bias that I want more colours because I’m a fan of stains! Nevertheless, this has amazing staying power and again has a lip balm on the end which I have to say isn’t the best! Carry round a lip balm of your own with this for sure though, because it’s very drying!

    No matter what kind of make up look you’re going for, the matte finish on a stain will compliment your whole look! This is my whole collection os stains because I feel like the ones I have, do the job for all the events I usually go to! I think MAC should try to bring out some soon because lip stains are getting bigger and bigger!
