This is a follow up to last nights post where I talked about my shopping experience from Kaymu - now let's get into what I actually bought.

Now let me tell you something, I browsed and browsed and browsed and there were so many great makeup organizers that I just couldn't decide what I which one I wanted to go for. It was that that I came across this one and I thought 'wow - this would fit my everyday morning/office makeup staples perfectly' so I ordered away! To know more about the ordering procedures and my delivery experience, please read this post HERE!



One thing I had in mind while selecting this was to use a seller that has good reviews, ratings and feedback. Kaymu is a lot like eBay - you have to make sure you're ordering from a trust worthy seller to ensure that you get the best quality product. I honestly was a bit skeptical after placing the order about the quality of the product, but I have to tell you, I am SUPER PLEASED with it! It's amazing quality and the price is pretty great too! The plastic doesn't feel cheap and tacky, the drawers glide in and out and it was packaged very well so it came to me without any scratches or marks on it.


Check out what I've kept in the organizer below, trust when I say it fits ALOT - because it really does. Now, don't think I slap on all this makeup everyday, but because this has more filling capacity that I had originally thought of - I've filled it with numerous options - basically it's lip products galore.



That's about it for my review, if there's something you'd like to ask then please ask away! I'd love to answer your queries in the comments below.

So I'm some of you might know what Kaymu (click HERE!) is, or might have come across it's adverts on Facebook. From what I have understood about Kaymu so far is that it is basically a Pakistani version of eBay. There are hundreds of sellers on the website that sell thousands of products, everything from home ware and technology to fashion and beauty! I've seen things like the Artis brush dupes on there along with Zucchini Spiralizers which are all the rage amongst health freak these days - point being, when I say you can find anything on there, you really can.

With Kaymu, what you need to know is that it is, like I said, quite like eBay - that means you have countless sellers, and you have to verify yourself whether that seller is a high quality seller or not.

Customers leave lots of review, ratings and feedbacks on sellers so when you're ordering - make sure you keep that in mind and then order away.



I ordered a makeup organizer from a reputable seller and got exactly what I wanted. Actually, I was a bit hesitant about the quality at the time of ordering, but when I got the package - quality-wise, it was way better than what I was expecting - seriously! (post on a complete review of that coming tomorrow)

Ordering Procedure - 

Their online ordering procedure is quite simple, you add the items to your cart and order away. I know many people love the Cash On Delivery service, so they have that as well. As soon as I ordered, the very next day I got a confirmation call from a Kaymu representative. The day after that, I got a text from the TCS delivery person with the date and approximate time when the rider would be coming so I could have the cash for COD ready (if that's the option you've availed)


The package itself was very well packed, and like I said in the beginning - I'm super satisfied with what I got from Kaymu! I will definitely be ordering another sets of these drawers (full post on what's inside coming soon)

Another thing I'd like to mention is that you can also be a seller on Kaymu with a lot of ease, here's HOW! - no need to pay or anything, it's completely FREE!

Hope you guys liked my review! I've done another super comprehensive post on the Top Online Makeup Stores/Website To Order From In Pakistan - so if you're interested in reading that, please click HERE!

So, incase you've been keeping up with my blog, you would've seen that my mom got the opportunity to go on a shopping spree, courtesy of The Body Shop on Mother's Day this year (you can read the complete post HERE!). Now as a part two of that post, my mom will be taking over and reviewing the products that she got. She is a big fan of the Body Shop, has been for years and years so she picked up mostly body butters and lotions etc, because she feels like that is their top product. She told me that if there is anyone who wants to try out something from the Body Shop (and hasn't till now) then they should start with their body butters since they have no alternate!



So first off, here's a list of the thing she got -

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter ( complete review HERE!)
The Body Shop Atlas Mountain Rose Body Butter
The Body Shop Strawberry Body Puree
The Body Shop Atlas Mountain Rose Body Lotion
The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel

So now she will be taking over, here are her reviews -

The Body Shop Body Butters 


These have to be my most repurchased items from the Body Shop, especially the Strawberry scent (review HERE!). I've used up so many tubs before getting this one, and will continue purchasing it. The scent is absolutely divine and last on subtly for hours. It has the perfect amount of moisture for summers but for winters, if you have dry skin like me, I would advice you to get the Shea Butter range. That is phenomenal! No matter how dry your skin is, your skin will feel moisturized and most importantly, stay moisturized after using the Shea Butter range products. I have been a long time purchaser of the Strawberry scent (and that was the first item to go into my shopping bag lol) but the Atlas Mountain Rose also has a beautiful and soft rose-y scent that is not over powering or too sickly sweet at all!

The Body Shop Body Purée's


I feel like when the Body Shop created this product, they had the Pakistani heat and summers in mind. Now this product is no ordinary body lotion, trust me. As soon as you take it out, you'll feel a cooling sensation because it is sort of watery, that not only makes applying and absorbing it super quick and easy, but the coolness it provides, that is what makes it so special. I previously had the Satsuma scent in this, or the Peach one, can't exactly remember, but I remember what a treat it was applying it in the hot morning and immediately loving the cooling sensation.

The Body Shop Shower Gel


I'm not really into buying shower gels, but my youngest son loves the Body Shop Lemon shower gel so I thought I would give this one a go. As always, I picked up the Strawberry (review HERE!) scent since that is my favorite and I have to say, I liking it so far. You know it's summer time and smelling good all the time in a necessity so I like using this in the shower and then pairing it up later with the Body Shop Body Butter in Strawberry - what this layering does it that it makes the scent linger on for a long, long time!  

Her Top Recommendations

So since I have tried a lot of Body Shop products, here are some other recommendations that I wanted to share -

The Body Shop Strawberry Range
I'm sure by now you can tell that I am a fan of everything in this range from soaps and scrubs to body butters and lotions. (review HERE!)

The Body Shop Banana Shampoo & Conditioner 
I regularly dye my hair so using this really prevented the damage as much as it could, not to mention, these two lasted me a long, long time! They just don't finish, which is a great thing!

The Body Shop Coconut Oil Hair Shine
Now like I mentioned, I dye my hair a lot, so after washing and drying them, I would always apply just a bit of this towards the ends. It is basically pure coconut oil, so don't use a lot otherwise it will look like you have oily hair, but what this does is it gives some shine and luster to the hair which obviously lessens with age.

The Body Shop Shea Collection
This is perfect for winter time, especially for those with dry skin. Me and my younger daughter, both use this only during the winters and our skin never dries out too much! (review HERE!)



Her Top Scents

1. Strawberry range
2. Satsuma range (perfect for summers!)
3. Coconut range
4. Shea range (review HERE!)

Well, that's it from my mothers takeover - hope you enjoyed this post!


My last post was a super super comprehensive post (read HERE!) where I discussed all that needed to be when it comes to Colourpop Super Shock eyeshadows! My love affair with these pots of goodness started with these three eyeshadows and it has now led to a crap load of implies purchases! Let's just hope my friends from the US visit Pakistan soon so they can bring these over for me lol - Anyways! Back to the point - this won't be a review post - it's more of a please-look-at-these-swatches-and-marvel-at-the-greatness-of-the-Colourpop-Eyeshadows kinda post!

(I'd suggest you guys read my complete review post regarding Colourpop Super Shock Eyeshadows before proceeding so you guys have an idea of the texture, finish, pigmentation etc <3 Read that post HERE!)



How drool worthy are the swatches! Seriously guys! Now let me try and describe these eyeshadows below haha!

Gameface  

A beautiful burnt copper eyeshadows with sheen, not glitter - a swipe and amazing pigmentation! 

Bae 

The MOST incredible eyeshadow I own, its a duo chrome with reflecting glitter so simply stunning. Sometimes it looks purple, sometimes blue, sometimes the glitter looks pink, sometimes turquoise-y - it's simply stunning! A MUST MUST MUST buy! 

Sequin 

Very different from other eyeshadows I own, its basically a peachy-pink eyeshadow full of glitter! When you put this on, seriously looks like you've spent your timing working in the eyeshadow and then separately adding glitter! Gorgeous! 

Which one do you like the most? Let me know in the comments below <3 


So for the longest time, I was very turned off from buying anything Colourpop - with the incredible social media hype around the eye shadows and lippie sticks all the time, and literally everywhere - I felt like it was too invasive as a brand and decided not to fall for the hype. Fast forward a couple of months, and there was a Black Friday sale that made me want to order, thinking that even if they weren't worth the hype I would have something to review on my blog (ahh the brain of a blogger, always thinking of ideas)
Complete Image CreditsHERE! and HERE! respectively (since I've lost my memory card and now my Colourpop Eyeshadows are all used and not-so-pretty to photography - plus this is my go-to blog aswell, go and have a read - you'll love it I'm sure)

So a friend who was coming over brought along an array of their infamous liquid lipsticks (check HERE!) for me along with a couple of eye shadows that I had had delivered to his place. Since I will always choose lip products over eye shadows I played and tested the liquid lipsticks for a long time before I came onto the Colourpop Super Shock eyeshades!

Now you guys need to believe me when I say - these blew me away! From the texture to the pigmentation to the finish; there is nothing at fault here! I could be paid to find a fault with these and I still won't be able to come up with any.

Texture

The texture is quite unusual, it's almost wet and cushion-y and indents as soon as you touch it. On the website it says to always keep them tightly closed when not in use so I'm assuming they have some sort of liquid action going on that needs to not dry up! Anyways, whatever the science behind it is - these are smooth, silky (insert all positive adjective for an eye shadow) and unlike anything I've tried in terms of eye shadow in general.

Pigmentation

The pigmentation is basically the bomb.com - I first tried these with a brush and was blown away by how pigmented the shades I have were, but the real treat came when I used my fingers to apply. O.M.G It was a moment where I questioned myself and wondered why I did not give into the hype and order earlier? If you think that the pigmentation with these on your eyelids is good with a brush, please use your fingers and prepare to have a magical makeup moment! What you see in the pan, is what you get! Nothing less :)

Longevity

These suckers last for ages and even after a full work day in the summer heat, I found that their shine or pigment had barely faded. Like I'd give it a 9/10 after a 8am to 6pm day - they're THAT great! So once you put them on, there will be no need to faff around or be worried about half your eye shadow fading away. These will stay put!

Finishes

There are a truck load of finished but the ones I ordered are the metallic and shimmer/sparkle finish. When I tell you the swiping on the shimmers with your fingers and blending it out makes you look like you've applied pigment and glitter and spend 40 minutes on one eye alone - please believe me. The sparkle is on another level - it seriously looks like you've done a lot with your eye makeup when in fact all you did was swipe on a shade with your fingers in under a minute! Some other finishes include matte and satin.

Price

Now these pots of amazing-ness are priced at $5 a pop and I know you're thinking hmmm..that's too cheap, maybe these are the result of sketchy ingredients somewhere in China (just like I thought) but that is not the case. These are produced in the Colourpop warehouses in LA, so best believe they got their act right there. Also, almost 95% of the products are Cruelty-Free - it's a win-win for us humans and animals alike so yay for that!

Where To Buy -

You can buy Colourpop products directly through their website HERE!, or if you are living in Pakistan then order through online Facebook pages! I've written a guide of trustable pages I've ordered from, read about it HERE!

I will be swatching some of my favorites shades tomorrow, so if you have any questions let me know here in the comments below.

So on the 17th of June, 5 years back I penned down my first blog post and hit that 'Publish' button - since then there has been no looking back or as the saying goes. My blog has opened so many doors of opportunities for me that I wanted to do something very special for a five year anniversary - but anniversary celebrations are for YOU GUYS so I want you feedback on a couple of questions! Please answer these in the comments below, or send me an email at nayabloves@hotmail.com so I know what to plan for you guys :)



1. Would you like ONE GRAND GIVEAWAY or smaller giveaways on all social media platforms (1/platform)

2. Do you guys find it easier to follow giveaway rules if I write them all down on a blog post or should I do that directly on the social media platform where the giveaway is being hosted like Facebook etc?

3. What are your thoughts on sponsors? Do you find it okay to 'like' different pages and follow a lot of rules or would you like the giveaways to be from my side only where there will be minimal rules?

Please let me know your feedback so I can start ordering the giveaways! Already have some really exciting things planned <3
