October GlossyBox


20131025-173035.jpg

This months GlossyBox arrived and I was mega excited to see what Autumn/ Fall products they would have inside!

20131025-173241.jpg
MeMeMe Cherubs Lip and Cheek Tint £5.50 12ml
This cheek tint is something have tried before but finished t and never repurchased! I’m a bit fan if cheek tints because powders and creams don’t last all that well on my face so to have something like a stain is perfect for me! This is lovely and lightweight, it’s also super-blend able and looks natural on the cheeks! As well as the nice and light price tag, it’s a steal and I’m so glad that my GlossyBox had a full size bottle! Woo!

20131025-173256.jpg
Vita Liberata Latte Illuminating Skin Finish £29.95 30ml
When I first saw this, I was sceptical because I hate sachets and packet samples of products! But after trying this yesterday, I can co item, I’m tempted to buy this for summer! I was confused at first as to what it was but it’s like a glowy fake tan with coverage! Imagine applying a darker foundation with shimmer in it, on your skin.. And you have this! It’s lightweight and mousse like which gives the skin an airbrushed finish! I love fake tanning so this is perfect! Probably not the best product for the colder months though, GlossyBox! I think I would have preferred this in summer!

20131025-173305.jpg
Premae Multi- Vit Smoothing Serum £22.50 50ml
When I had received the Harmony balm a few months ago, I had fallen in love with the stuff and was really tempted to buy the full size were it not for the hefty price! So I was glad to see another product from their line! This product claims to be a moisturising serum which doesn’t let you get oily! I out it to the ultimate test of wearing it at night after I’d cleansed (needed the moisture) and when I get the most oily! I woke up to my skin feeling soft and not as oily! It didn’t work miracles but it’s so nice and lightweight on the skin! Perhaps another product I’d have preferred in summer?

20131025-173447.jpg

MONU Illuminating Primer £24.95 50ml
When it comes to MONU products, I love them! Every time I’ve received something in my GlossyBox which is branded MONU, I’ve taken an instant liking to it: MONU revitalising cream, the heated mask and now this! When I saw this primer, I was sceptical to trying it because I already love the Benefit one I’m using at the moment. However, I love that this primer is so light and so easy to use! It doesn’t let my skin oil and it has a gorgeous shimmer running through it! It’s quite paste-like in consistency and seems as though it would be quite heavy on the skin but I’m actual fact, feels amazing! It instantly brightens your face and gives you an illuminating glow! I love this already!

20131025-173454.jpg
Katy Perry Killer Queen £29.99 50ml

When I received this perfume sample, the first thing I thought was.. AGAIN? I had already got this in a previous box! And to be honest, I wasn’t that keen on the scent! I love the Katy Perry Purr scent which I own but was a little disappointed with this one! It’s still sweet and has a nice summery scent but it’s not something I would reach for in Autumn I feel! Definitely worth a sniff during the warmer months though!

Top 5 summer pink lipsticks!


20130721-234537.jpg

Now that we’re in the middle of the summertime, it’s time to pull out our bright colours! Some people aren’t too confident in wearing bright clothing and they love a bright lip so here’s my favourite summertime pinks! Stay tuned in the next few days for my other favourite summer tones!

YSL Rouge Pure Shine Sheer Lipstick in 31 £21
A beautiful sheer hot pink colour that glosses wonderfully. Makes your lips look juicy and plumper

20130721-232240.jpg

20130721-232246.jpg

Becca Beach Tint in Watermelon £20
A matte deep pink colour that looks lovely on any skin tone. Fairly natural but makes lips look plumper and really immaculate

20130721-233538.jpg

20130721-233545.jpg

MAC Impassioned (amplified) £14
A vibrant coral pink with a satin finish. Like a less matte version of YSL lipstick. Really flattering bright pink colour.

20130721-233421.jpg

20130721-233431.jpg

Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie £7.99
A smooth and moisturising pink shade. Although not uber sticky, glitter glistens beautifully in sunlight and is a lovely muted pink without being garish.

20130721-233710.jpg

20130721-233716.jpg

Barry M in TMLP (turn my lips pink)
A melanin changing lip colour that adjusts differently on every person. It’s a moisturising pink colour that goes deeper as you do (when tanning etc) Lasts really well because it’s a stain.

Beauty products I’m disappointed with


These are the products which have disappointed me after I’ve tried them! I’ve tried them for quite a while and in as many ways as I can and it just ain’t happening!

Benefit They’re Real!
Everyone says such good things about this mascara but I don’t understand why! It works really well at lengthening but it does nothing for volume at all for me! I always have to use a volumising mascara! I thing the formula of the mascara would work better with a bristle brush rattan than a plastic one! I love the spikes on the end to get the inner corners of the lashes though.. When this tube finishes I’m going to use the brush for other mascaras!

20130429-114803.jpg

Sleek Blush by 3- Pink Spirit
I’ve used this for as long as the product has been out and it’s not all of the shades I dislike! Just this one and the only reason is because the two colours (??) are completely identical.. Almost! The payoff and colours are lovely though! It would just be nice for the colours to be a little different to each other!

20130429-114808.jpg

Body Shop- Ginger Shampoo
This is supposed to an anti- dandruff shampoo because ginger has those qualities. I found it mega drying on my hair though! It just seemed to itch my hair and caused me to flake (even when I wasn’t before- I was trying to use it as a defence before I got dandruff in winter)! I like the smell though and I suppose if you have MEGA oily hair, it will help sort out the mane!

20130429-114823.jpg

L’oreal Caresse Shine Stains- Romy 102
Again.. It’s the colour! It’s a lovely pink colour but I just found the actual shade to be different than the packaging shows! I like the formula (although it doesn’t last all day) but I’m sure the other colours are good as everyone raves about these! I’ll be sure to get another shade and tell you what I think!

20130429-114813.jpg

GOSH BB Corrector kit- Light
This has to be the most disappointing product of all of my collection! This concealer kit is supposed to have BB qualities and comes with 3 products, an underage & blemish concealer as well as a highlighter. I found the products to be too watery and they did nothing! The highlighter was the worse! I think I’ll just scoop some of this into my moisturiser for a tint on the ‘natural make up’ days!

20130429-114831.jpg

Benefit Cha Cha Tint
This tint is more of a gel consistency rather than a liquid and I love the texture. I’m not too sure of the product though! I found that it stuck to my face wherever I first placed it and it dried as soon as it touches skin so I couldn’t blend it! For the price.. A NO NO!

20130429-114837.jpg

Vichy- Idealeá
This cream.. CRAP

BARGAIN MAKE UP HAUL!!!!


20120824-022828.jpg

Well obviously, it’s that time of the month.. Where a woman wants to do nothing more than shop for make up products which she no way needs, and never even knew she wanted until she saw it on the shelf! Not linked to hormones at all.. Let’s just call it NATURAL to waste money when we’re bored :)

When I got in Boots, I found so many offers on brands and products that I loved! I knew instantly I wanted to post a bargain make up haul! So all the products are on offer! If they’re not on offer.. They’re dirt cheap! You don’t need to have a wallet that weighs a tonne for these babies!!

20120824-022818.jpg
My receipt!

SO! I got a few things.. Originally I went into Boots to find an eye shadow colour that @essiebutton had mentioned on her YouTube channel! I thought it was stunning and as I’m no way ever going to waste money on a MAC eye shadow when I can find a high street priced dupe, I went on the hunt..

20120824-025821.jpg
Shale £12.00

So the first thing I picked up was This nail varnish from Number 17! It’s the magnetic kind that creates a funky metallic look to your nails and since I had never tried one before, I thought I’d go for it!

20120824-023506.jpg
Lilac £5.99

To top off my excitement, Boots had an offer were they were giving a free trio of limited edition ‘Bronze’ make up products if you spent over £5.99! I love 17 products so of course went for it! Inside the box, there was an eye shadow, lip gloss and cream blusher which are all products I love to use! The lip gloss was a nice nude colour and has a little shimmer in but looks gorgeous! More of a brown nude than pink but it looks good on the lips and would definitely look good on a tanned person!

20120824-024005.jpg

The blusher was very disappointing! Has the consistency of a cream eye shadow and the colour is so orange and has a horrible shimmer to it! After trying it on my cheeks, I felt no different so will have to throw that ‘accidentally’ under the bed!

20120824-024424.jpg
Bronze

The last item.. The eye shadow of my dreams! During the rest of the shopping trip, I searched every kiosk for the MAC dupe but never found it until I went home, and this eye shadow greeted my life! It was exactly what I was looking for! It looks über shiny in the pot but on the skin has a lovely metallic feel to it! EXACTLY what I wanted! I love this colour!

20120824-023949.jpg
Statuesque

Rimmel are having a 3 for 2 offer in Boots so I thought I would treat myself! I first picked up the Glam Eyes Day to Night mascara! This really does look nice! I accidentally picked up 002 Brown Black, however, it looks really nice and not as piercing as black mascara so I quite like it! I tried it on straight away although cant give it a proper review, because I already had mascara on!

20120824-023443.jpg
002 Brown Black £7.99

Then, I saw this eye shadow quad and fell in love with the colours! I don’t usually like shimmer or metallics but am at the moment during the sunny weather we’re having here in London so picked it up! It has a gorgeous champagne, bronze, nude peach and dirty blonde colour! They look great by themselves or with matte contouring! They’re really well pigmented too! Apart from the champagne colour which is very dull.. Doesn’t really have strong pigmentation at all!

20120824-023455.jpg
Sun safari £6.99

Lastly, I got this lipgloss! I love pinky colours but nothing too bright and deep pinks are my favourite! I remember I used to have this lipgloss but misplaced it somewhere and I’ve rediscovered it! Not only is the colour great, but the texture isn’t too sticky and it has the most gorgeous glitter particles in it! Doesn’t last very long though but, I’ll definitely try more colours in the future!

20120824-024433.jpg
Captivate me £6.29

I’ve always wanted to try a natural collection blush and so I picked up this one today after I saw it was so inexpensive! This is a gorgeous rosy pink colour and looks great on the cheeks! Has a really soft and satin feel too! Only thing is that it can look quite chalky and can easily blend away! So I would apply a cream product like extra primer, cream highlighter etc. to help it stick!

20120824-023139.jpg
Pink cloud £1.99

Soap and Glory released a make up line a while back and I have never really tried anything major from them! I’ve had a few free samples such as ‘Mother Pucker’ lip gloss and ‘Thick and Fast’ mascara but always wanted to try more! When I saw Boots had an offer for £3 off, I couldn’t resist! I love their body supplies, and I love their make up too!

The Kick Ass Concealer I got in medium and I LOVE IT! It has a very salmon toned colour and a bright under eye concealer too! They actually say the salmon colour should be used as a facial concealer rather than under eye but I would use it as a corrector and apply the lighter shade after to enhance the under eye area! It also has a powder puff, which I LOVE! The translucent powder is so fine and satin like!

20120824-023151.jpg

20120824-023207.jpg
Medium £7.00

The Cheekmate is a lip and cheek stain! You guys know how much I love my Body Shop stain but this has a more creamy consistency! It blends like a dream but I haven’t tested it’s longevity yet! I’ll keep you guys posted!

20120824-023933.jpg
Rosy glow £6.00

I got this brush from Sainsbury’s which is a supermarket like Target! I really wanted a pencil brush but wanted to see whether it suits the way I do my eye make up before I invested in a MAC brush! This cost £3.99 and is dual ended with an angled brush on the other side! I love it! I tested it straight away on a general smoky eye and it looked GREAT! It has a short, stubby and precise tip which helps you get a perfect outer corner and crease going!

20120824-024439.jpg
Smokey eye brush £3.99

That’s the end of the make up haul guys! Clothing haul coming up soon! little tip is when you have a 3 for 2 offer, get products which are priced around the same price! This way you get full use out of the deal!

Just so you guys know, I tried to test this make up straight away after i got it
and I applied as I normally would! I also carried out my evening duties as usual and even had a little nap hence, the real views I have!

It goes to show that if you look for deals, you’ll often find what you’re looking for! I’ll be doing a make up look using these products soon!

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

    July favourites 2012


    The end of the month is nigh and I thought I’d tell you guys my favourite things!
    It’s been a gorgeous month! Weather has been mostly sunny and beautiful and I’m loving it! The month of Ramadhan has also been SUPER! I’ve been thoroughly enjoying it and to know more than a week has gone is quite sad but onwards and upwards!

    I’m quite good at constantly changing my make up, clothes and routine but these are the things that have remained consistent this month:

    • Body shop lip and cheek stain! This stuff has staying power like no other and I absolutely love it! I don’t really use it on my lips as I find it SUPER drying but I like it on my cheeks! Don’t quote me on this but I think it has that pH effect that some other blushes have too cause I feel it darkens throughout the day depending on the way I’m feeling (hot/cold).. Not sure whether it’s just me but it’s excellent!

    20120731-002311.jpg

    • Good things face mask! I blame this for my lovely skin at the moment! It evens/ reduces oil and is so easy to use! I’m not too keen on leaving stuff on my face for too long as it can get quite sensitive skin so this 5 minute one is fantastic! For extra exfoliation I use an exfoliation brush to brush it off with and I get really soft skin!

    20120731-002227.jpg

    • I’m all about comfort this month! Because I’m fasting and on my feet all day at work.. I’ve told my manager to stuff the uniform and I’m wearing whatever shoes I like! I’ve been loving these spotty pumps from Dorothy Perkins! You can tell they’re well loved but I absolutely love them! I’ve worn them in, they go with everything and they’re a bit different.. PERFECT!

    20120731-000314.jpg

    • Again.. I’ve been going casual all month and whenever I need to go out, I’ve been choosing to wear the most coolest thing over my abaya but something which is still modest. I do go without something over my abaya too but I have a rather large backside so I tend to put something over it regardless! This blazer I got about two years ago and I love it! I would advise trying the blazer on before you purchase though cause for sure.. The fitting of a blazer is what makes it look good! You might be a size 10 normally but you’ll probably need a size 8 blazer so just try before you buy! (Can’t believe I just found this on eBay! I paid £50 for mine so you’re getting a real bargain!)

    20120731-002818.jpg

    • Minimal minimal minimal! And I can’t be bothered with handbags and carrier bags and shopping bags! I got this clutch (Select phone and laptop bags) from Topshop and it’s ingenious! It has an iPhone holder which holds any iPhone version as well as a section for your cards and cash which is all I really need! I don’t know where to put my car keys though and it’s quite annoying holding them but if you’re with someone who has a handbag.. I’m sure my keys will find a way into their bag :)

    20120731-000506.jpg

    • PARTY RINGS!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU! The perfect snack after you open your fast and I love dipping them in my tea! They just make me happy and remind me of my childhood! And they’re not too unhealthy either so BONUS!

    20120731-000548.jpg

    • Mr. A! My gorgeous! He’s not just my favourite of the month! He’s my favourite of the past 4 years and many more to come! It was his birthday this month and I’m sure he had a fantastic day! I’ve also got a little surprise planned for later on in the year for him! This was his last birthday without me! Next year when we’re married.. I’ll be sure that he’s woken up on his birthday with party poppers and streamers in his face! I LOVE YOU BUBBLE! :D

    Hope you all had a fantastic month and are enjoying your Ramadhan this year! Make sure you all take advantage of this year cause it may be your last and ensure you not only pray to Allah, but obey your parents and look after them too!

    Remember.. Your parents are your gods on Earth!
