Today’s topic is going to be my most favorite evening blush i.e. Luscious Powder Blush in Desert Rose. This might sound strange but I feel like this blush looks good with so many eye/lip looks. It comes in a silver plastic packaging. Here’s a picture;
This is a deep rosy shade with the most subtle sheen. A swatch can also be seen;
It is very easy to blend and has quite nice pigmentation. It also feels soft-to-touch even though the surface looks hard.
The formula is not powdery at all and has zero fall out. Although it does start to fade after 5 hours but keeping the price in mind, it already has done justice ;)!
The recent price is Rs 925, I bought it for Rs 700 though!
Today’s topic is a little bit different as you can tell from the title. It’s going to be a do’s and don’ts of the skincare regimen.
In today’s time when we’ve hundreds and thousands of products claiming to take care of our skin, we tend to forget the most basic and simple things that cost us nothing but are of great value. Let’s have a look;
Keep Yourself Hydrated: By drinking lots and lots of water. Water keeps your skin fresh and plump.
Removing Makeup: Before you hit bed, it’s very important to remove makeup and deep cleanse your face. Sleeping with makeup on can cause breakouts, large pores and can also speed up the ageing process of your skin because with makeup your skin can’t breathe.
Exfoliation: You must not forget to exfoliate your skin twice (or may be thrice) a week. This way you’ll be removing the dead cells and rejuvenating the skin.
Wear Sunscreen: Even if you’ll be exposed to sun for a few minutes only. Roasting your skin under the sun is very old school, protect it from sun’s scorching beams and you’ll notice a significant difference in how your skin look and feel.
Overlook Moisturizing: Even if you’ve oily skin you must still moisturize (try applying lotion on damp face, this way you’ll be putting less but still enough to keep the skin moisturized) because if you don’t, your skin will produce more oil causing you to breakout ( or just feel greasy in general).
Cleaning A Lot: Excess of anything is bad, so you must not wash your face more than twice a day or else you’ll dry out your skin.
Touch Your Face Irrelevantly: Because our hands catch the germs fastest and if you touch your face a lot, you’ll be transferring those germs onto your face.
Drinking Very Chilled Water: It’s best to drink water that is in room temperature (could be slightly chilled).
Eating Excessive Junk Food: Because your skin is what you eat. If you eat a lot of junk food ( or oily food in general) your skin might not necessarily breakout but will look dull and unfresh. Instead, you can eat fresh vegetables and fruits to look your best.
Remember, the more you take care, the more you’ll be friends with your skin. And seriously, who wants otherwise ?!
So people, that is it for today. Hope this was helpful in some way!
It’s been really long since I’ve posted anything. My sincere apologies.
So, few days back Kate Moss came up with a lipstick line in collaboration with Rimmel London – actually named Kate!
The lipstick comes in a complete black packaging with Kate written in red, on it’s cap.
The collection has 15 shades in total ranging from nudes to purples, pinks and reds.
The one I’m talking about is a gorgeous deep purple which in my opinion won’t be very much flattering on much deeper skin tones but most of the complexions can pull it off easily. Here’s a swatch;
The lipstick is beautifully pigmented and is very comfortable on the lips, lasting you around 3 to 4 hours. Also, the formula is creamy and glides on very nicely plus the finish is glossy. But not to ignore the fact that these lipsticks aren’t paraben free (contains Propylparaben) which obviously is dangerous for us in the long run, also, they have a bad scent (at least in my opinion).
The amount of product you get inside is the standard 0.14oz (or 4g).
Talking about the price, it costs US$ 4.99* at Target (similar to the regular Rimmel lipsticks) and 4.49* pounds on the UK’s amazon.
Now on to the ratings which I won’t be giving this time because seriously I’m not comfortable in rating a product that has parabens!
Today, I’m extremely excited to bring you an amazing giveaway (Yayyy!!)

Her pieces have a very feminine feel and are designed using classic forms, striking an elegant balance between trendy and timeless design.
Today, I’m gonna be sharing a DIY, i.e. to remove those bad stubborn blackheads that sit on our face without our will.
Now blackheads, if not treated immediately, will become an ugly part of your face and then, won’t go easily. So, here’s my tried-and-tested DIY for you!
This DIY is super easy because it requires only 2 ingredients (Yes, only 2!) that are already there in your fridge.
What you need to do is separate an egg-white from its yolk and beat until it becomes fluffy. Now, add 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon in it and mix again, well.
Here’s what the mixture should look like;
Next, take a clean cotton ball and dip it in the mixture for a few seconds so that the mixture is properly absorbed in the cotton ball. Now, dab the cotton on your nose (and other affected area like cheeks) and let the mixture dry. It normally take 10-15 minutes.
Once the mixture is dry, wash it with tap water and see the difference for yourself.
Let me give you a little evidence too 😉
Make sure that you apply the mixture on dry bare face so that the results are maximised.
Do not forget to try and tell – I’d love to hear from you guys!
Hello Everybody, Its been long since I updated my blog and Yes, apologies for that 🙂
So, for today, I’ve my favorite makeup setting powder stories to share with you I.e. Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder !
This product is around for more than a year and a half, but I started using it about a year ago.
Here’s what it looks like;
The packaging is, to be honest, very cheap and THERE’S NO MIRROR !! But, I overlooked it because Obviously! 😉
It comes in 8 different shades (not all the shades are available in every country), have a look;
Now, on to the actual product. The formula is something I Love because it claims to control shine (oil) and it does (for around 5 hours, on me) plus it will minimise the pore appearance if yours’ aren’t dramatic. The texture isn’t powdery or chalky at all – feels almost like a cream and hence, gives a smooth look and is very light weight on the skin.
The application is flawless, it blends well and is not cakey whatsoever. Although it doesn’t give you any extra coverage but I find it a Little bit brightening – I mean it’s not flat transparent.
As for its lasting power, it lasts for around 5 hours and then my T-zone starts to get oily, for which, I can put another layer and it won’t crease.
One thing I noticed about it is that it doesn’t work very good with brushes, you need a sponge to properly mattify/powder your face.
Price wise, it is £3.99 / AED 29 / Rs 800 !
Overall, this is the product one must try, I’d give it 4/5 !

Hello Everybody, I’m back with the promised review on Color Studio’s nail polish line named HAUTE.
The HAUTE line isn’t new but they recently came out with some new colors under Bubble Gum collection which, to be honest, I haven’t tried by now (cause Color Studio isn’t available in UAE, how sad is that !?). BUT, I’ve been using the same Haute line since long. And after a couple of uses I can say that the product falls perfectly fit on its name – Haute! 🙂
The product comes in a thick glass bottle which is pretty common for the nail polishes. Here’s how it looks like;
This line has a huge (yes, HUGE) color range from light to dark to glittery shades. And these are pretty opaque (see swatches below) so you don’t have to keep layering it to get the pigmentation.
The formula isn’t thick so it takes hardly a minute or two to dry on your nails plus it’s creamy enough to give you a shiny finish that you practically don’t need any top coat.
On me, without any base or top coat, these nail polishes do not wear off for around 4-5 days – that means the lasting power is pretty good.
Now coming to the price, each nail color costs Rs 250 (£ 4.50) which is, for me, neither cheap nor costly considering the amount of product you get.
Keeping the quality in mind, I’m extremely excited for the new collection Color Studio is coming out with i.e. Bubble Gum.
Overall, I’d give this product some 4/5 !
Let me know what do you think of this product and I’ll see you next time!
Hello Everybody! I hope each one of you is doing good.
Today, I’m back with another product review, this time on Color Studio Pure Matt Lipsticks.
Let’s start with the first thing you’d notice – it’s packaging. The product is packed in a beautiful black plastic case with golden detailing, which I find very classy. Color Studio did a pretty good job with the packaging. Here’s how it looks like;
Now, on to the actual product – the lipstick.
As the name tells, these lipsticks are a matte formula. Although it is matte but the lipsticks are not at all drying or patchy. They actually feel creamy and lightweight on lips.
Ask me about the pigmentation and I’ll be more than happy to tell you that the color payoff is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G ! (see the swatches below). Additionally, the color comes off exactly the way it looks in the tube.
Another thing I’d mention is its lasting power. The lipstick will literally last you all day (at least on me it does) which is the best part. You won’t have to keep reapplying the product to keep the color bold.
Last (but certainly NOT the least) is the price – which I know is the deciding factor 😉 ! So, I’m glad to tell you that each lipstick costs Rs 750 only (£ 8.50) which isn’t bad keeping in mind that there’s almost nothing bad about this lipstick.
I’d give this product a happy 5/5 as I haven’t noticed any drawback whatsoever, which, by the way makes it a recommended product 😉 !
Have you used these Pure Matt lipsticks? What do you think of them? I’d love to know!
And coming up is the review on their Color Studio Nail Polish line named Haute so stay tuned for that too.
As we all know the number of foundations/ BB / CC creams available in market are unlimited but only few of them does a real good job and Luckily I’ve got you something that works great. Yes, The Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector !
Here’s what a miracle in a tube looks like 😉
To be honest, this product is so well-known and probably doesn’t need my review but I find it so good that I wanted to write a few words for it.
This product claims to perfect skin tone and Yes, It Does ! If you’re a consistent user you’ll notice a significant difference in your skin tone and dark spots, at least I did.
It works well with both sheer and heavy application. For heavy coverage, a damp beauty blender is a great choice (or may be a flat-top foundation brush) whereas for light coverage I like to apply it with my fingertips and it works just as great.
It also has SPF 20 which, for some people, isn’t enough but I, personally, like the foundations / BB creams with no or low SPF or else it shines back in the photographs.
Another good thing I like about this BB Cream is its consistency. It is neither runny nor very thick which is good as this way it’s easy-to-apply.
The only drawback of this product is that it isn’t available in a wide color range (available in Light & Medium only), even though I’ve my good match (yay !!) but people with deep or very fair skin tones won’t be able to find their exact matches.
On me this product go shine-free for around 3-5 hours and then you might need a powder touch up (or oil blotting sheets) depending on how oily your skin is.
Overall, I’d rate this product a good 3.9 stars out of 5 🙂 !
