Christine Jumbo Lip pencil


As lot of us know, that Christine’s lippies are quite popular in Pakistan. And what I love about it; is that it’s locally available in “EVERY” store in a very affordable range in Pakistan. I’ve been using a lot of their lipsticks, foundation base, eye shades and so far I'm pretty much satisfied with the results. Girls have been messaging me a lot about the Christine Colour cosmetics lippies that I frequently use, so thought of starting with my Christine Eye & Lip pencil today.

I have five different shades of Christine Eye & Lip pencil to wear in different occasion.


Daylight

Flash light



Candy

Nancy


Cafe

Lilac Pink
Bali Pink
This pencils are designed for shaping, lining or filling in the lip. Christine Lip Pencils have a smooth, creamy texture that is perfect for lining the lips or filling them in. They available in a wide selection of colours that each work well with many different lipstick shades.I picked the colours that looks more natural in the daylight, not too harsh to wear in summer. The pencil cost Rs. 50-60 in the market. Let me know if lip swatches are needed.

Hope this post helped !! till then see ya..

Oriflame Sweden Sun Zone


Hello!

It’s been a while, but it’s never too late. Today I'm back with a new skin care product, a product that can and will protect your skin from the sunlight and it’s UV. To be honest I never like using or applying a sunblock on my face when I go out, usually it feels sticky, hot and sweaty all over my face whenever I use it. Luckily, I didn't get dark patches which is usually the side effects of exposing your face in the sunlight.

This product was sent to me for reviewing purpose “6 months” ago!! but couldn’t write on it as I got too busy in my whole pregnancy journey, apologising for that. (fingers crossed)


So getting back with the product; picture as shown below:


PRODUCT CLAIMS to be a

  • ·         UV protectors face and exposed areas.
  • ·         It protects skin against UV damage and moisturising.
  • ·         It is dermatological tested.
  • ·         SPF 50
  • ·         High cellular protection
  • ·         Non sticky, water resistant
  • ·         Made in Poland (Stockholm, Dublin)





My Opinion:

Overall a good product to me, definitely a MUST-HAVE for your travelling cosmetic bag! It is for all skin types, especially for those who have sensitive skin. For girls and ladies having acne, this is not for you. The best part about this product is that it’s non sticky when you apply it, it is more like a water based moisturiser. I recommend this moisturiser to all working ladies and college girls. It’s always better to go out with a skin protector, it makes you feel confident to stand in the heat without fearing your skin getting damaged, and it is a good barrier. I agree with all the points that the product claims to be. This thing is more than just a sun block.

How I use it?

I always apply it all over my face and hands. I also apply it before doing my makeup routine. Apply and let it set for 2 mins. And you're good to go.

Rate: 5/5

Availability:

Available only in online stores. You may check it out from any Oriflame representatives.

PRODUCT PICTURES AND SWATCHES:





ACID BRIGHT REDEMPTION PALETTE

As you can see, the pictures above the eyeshadows are really nicely pigmented, and it works best with eye primer/base. The white eyeshadow from the palette is bit softer,you'll have to layer up few to get a required colour. The packaging is made of a plastic, pretty much like MUA eye palettes. The size you can determine from the picture above, as I'm holding it. It's amazing to have a bigger palette in such a cheaper price, really affordable for I think 3 pounds only. If you are looking for a pigmented palette in affordable price then this is for you. They also deliver their products very fast and so much on time.


  • Makeup Revolution Lipstick Mystify 
  • Makeup Revolution Lipstick Beloved
  • Makeup Revolution Intense Lacquer Salvation

Salvation Intense Lacquer

Beloved Lipstick (Matte)


There lipsticks are lighter than I expected, it didn't give much color. It may be made like that on purpose but their Salvation Intense Color Lacquer is amazing not just because of the color payoff but also the texture it is not sticky, oily. Moreover it keeps my lips nice and soft. For me the lipgloss works best for my dry lips.  

I've ordered their foundation, pretty curious about it. Let's see how it works. Most probably I'll be ordering their naked palettes and more of their Lacquers. As the prices are really affordable, it wouldn't be painful to my pocket. :)

An exciting cute and girly stuff send by an online store named " Sprinkle the love", I was bit surprised by the items the store has send to me, as I've never thought I'd be receiving something different and not make up. These are all the HOT-SELLING products from their store and it is so generous of them to send this items for me to introduce and share my personal opinions on it. 
So, starting with Velvet powder, an amazing trend for teens and ladies. I've not tried it yet, saving it for glamorous occasions!! I'll do a tutorial on this in the near future. 
Red Velvet powder cost Rs. 150


Three Hot Red Earrings of different sizes, I wore this a couple of times already and I just loved the way it blings! 
                               
Rs.300

Starbucks Dust plug is used for mobile phones, it's quite useful and keeps your cellphone nice and clean plus fashionable. 

Rs. 300


And my favourite Funky bracelet !! The store has all colours available, I got the pink one!! 

Rs.400


And last but not the least, A hair extension clip in pink, which is an another funky look. Pretty awesome as I was really interested in trying on IT looks and this would really the work for me too!!

Rs. 150

UBTAN TURMERIC CREAM FOR BRIDES TO BE!



Just a simple skin care product  “UBTAN TURMERIC CREAM” by English Company. I’m sure you must have seen and heard about it everywhere in the market as it is the local brand here in Pakistan.
UBTAN TURMERIC CREAM is ideally used for your face and body. It is naturally made of herbs, ubtan, sandal and turmeric. It protects you from dark spots, scars, dirt, all sorts of blemishes and imperfections.
It helps prevent unwanted darkening spots and instantly brightens and evens skin tone. It is also useful for burnt marks.
Ubtan turmeric cream pampers skin with its herbal ingredients. It’s  naturally conditioning and nourishing, keeps your body smooth and soft, enriching moisture and sensuous fragrance.

My views :
I use this cream every single day in the morning, evening and night before I go to bed which means three times a day, and I’ve been using it for 8-9 months now. I remember I bought this cream cos I was getting married and I wanted my skin look flawless by simply using herbal creams and masks back in July 2013. So I grabbed a lot of stuff like Multani mitti (Earth fuller), Sandal wood powder by Saeed Ghani, Saeed Ghani Ubtan, rose water etc all from Imtiaz (North Nazimabad). Ubtan turmeric cream is the only product that I still use now, because it:
·         Feels fresh on the skin.
·         Good for both skin types, especially on oily skin.
·         Keeps your face glowing and soft all day long.
·         Lovely scent
·         Helps lighten up your scars/blemishes/spots.
·         Very cheap
·         Herbal
OILY SKIN:
If you have oily skin, I highly recommend you to use this cream. Trust me I have tested this cream with my friends and they loved it. It sort of absorbs the oiliness on the face and prevents the face looking like a fry pan and keeps your face moisturised and glowing at the same time.



Any Stores in Karachi!! I got mine from Imtiaz.
BEWARE with fake ones, don't buy in small stores at all as it happened to me too ..
And if you don't get them in your area then you can always order online from both the pages:

  • Velah's Fashion and Makeup Shop:
