OOTD-Temprature Rising


An outfit post after a gazzillion years?! How could it be?! The reason I couldn't do any outfit posts since quite a while was because my sister wasn't here to take pictures since she's the one who assists me in these particular  ones. Taking outfit pictures without a tripod is hard work haha. The quality isn't the best since it was almost dusk, but I decided to just go ahead and post this :)

I love this kurta, with its black and white patterns and pops of colors here and there. The netted sleeves aren't something I was too eager about but once worn, they look pretty good, imo. I paired it with my trusty jeggings since the temperatures are risen way too much, and wearing proper jeans was completely out of the question.

Whats your go to outfit for the summers? Let me know in the comments below :) 

Until next time, tc. ( to enter my on-going Facebook give away, click here! )

Review-Revlon Lip Butter in Lollipop


Now I know there is an abundance of reviews where the Revlon Lip Butters are concerned, but I thought I'd add in my two cents to the mix and let you know how I get along with them! 

Looks super bright and bold in the tube doesn't it? I was a bit apprehensive when applying this for the first time but as soon as I swiped this buttery smooth, pigmented to the brim product to my lips, I was in awe. Let's break it up for you guys :) 

1. Pigmentation- Amazing pigmentation! You literally almost need one swipe and the swatch above is proof of how opaque this is in one swipe. I have darkly pigmented lips so to see a product cover that up within a swipe definitely gets a thumbs up from me.

2. Color- Now, if you've been reading my blog for a while you know that I stick to lighter shades so this was at first definitely out of my comfort zone. Its a blue-toned bright pink that makes you teeth look whiter (yes, it does!) and little specks of micro glitter in it which aren't obvious until the product is wiped off from your lips. Many people have compared this to be like MAC's Snow Orchid & Girl About Town, and it does look like that from the online swatches, but since I have none I can't vouch for that with guarantee. 

3. Lasting Power- The lasting power of this pleasantly surprised me and it lasted 3-4 hours on me after which it did leave a nice faint tint, which I really like since I don't like my lips to be completely devoid of any color. Eating and drinking in between will definitely cancel out the longevity of the product but that is the case with any product so I won't hold it against this one!

4. Formula- Given the name is lip 'butter' I expected this product to be quite moisturizing, and I'm pleased to report that it is! I always, ALWAYS wear lip balm underneath all my lip products and there was no need underneath this, which was a first. It doesn't amplify any cuts on your lips, and the above swatch is, once again, a proof of that since I had bitten my lips to death before swatching this little beauty on them and I failed to see any of the imperfections being highlighted. Honestly, if you ask me where I had bit my lip, even I wouldn't be able to you. 

5. Packaging- Some reviews have stated that the packaging is cheap looking, but I disagree completely, I love how all the tubes are show case the shade inside and Revlon products packaging, especially their lip ones, has altell ways reminded me of Chanel ones haha.

So if you can't tell already, I am more than a little infatuated with this wonderful product and can't wait to try out more!

Price- $7-8, PKR 1,120.

Glam Up With The Body Shop Competetion


Well hello there girls :) A while back quite a few bloggers from Pakistan got emails from The Body Shop as an invitation for their 'Glam Up' competition where the newly launched Leona Lewis products had to be used to re create their campaign look which features heavy eye-liner, shades of pinks and oranges. Not being the best with eye shadows and blending and all that jazz I decided to give it a go, and here's what I came up with. This isn't an exact recreation of the look but more of my interpretation using the same products.

Here are some of the makeup bits from the collection, excuse the lighting in these photos, it's a bit dodgy haha. 

Now on to the key products that were used- 

Products used for the eyes-
Berry Cheeky eyeshadow
Pink Crush eyeshadow
Be my Clementine eyeshadow
Liquid Liner in Black
Super Volume Mascara in Black

Products used for the face-
Pressed Face Powder
Oh Deer Blush and Shimmer Palette

Products used for the lips-
Shade 55

The eyeliner I'm wearing in this look is wayyy more than I usually do haha, still seems demure compared to how Leona's is done but my mom still went into a shock after I came out of the shop. The eye look features pinks and oranges like it was in Leona's campaign shots. Personally I LOVE the combination of pink and orange, it gives off such a fun vibrant vibe haha, so I decided to use that combination and do a nail design as well that would go well with this campaign :)

So there you have it, hope you guys liked this look. It's very different from what I would normally do but I guess that's what the fun part is. To check out the Body Shop's Facebook page, click here where you can view all the other entries as well :) 

Let's all celebrate cruelty-free beauty, until next time, tc.
