Weekend Post - Skincare & Kuch Khaas!


While I love Islamabad, it really needs to catch up when it comes to meet-ups and social events in the beauty industry. Thankfully, Well Beeing, an all natural skin care company based in Canada, decided to hold one in Islamabad to introduce their products into the local market. Here's what I wore to my meet-up which was held at Kuch Khaas, definitely wasn't going for the all-black look, but it just happened haha.

Top - Forever 21 
Jeans - Forever21 
Clutch - New Look 
Statement necklace - Topshop (maybe :s) 
Shoes - Honestly no idea! 

Maybelline Fit Me Concealor 
The Balm Nude Tude Palette 
Rimmel Exxagerate Eyeliner 
Jordana Extra Lash Mascara 
Luscious BOLD Inense Eye Pencil 
MAC Twig
MAC Peaches 
The Balm Mary Loumanizer

Now coming on to Well Beeing , they basically produce handcrafted skincare items with natural ingredients that are completely bio-degradable! Not only are they chemical and toxins free, they are quite easy on the pocket and coming in excellent packaging! Since all natural ingredients are used, they are prepared in small batches, rest assured what you get will be super fresh! The packaging is sleek, doesn't take up much space and it is a relief to see products that are so budget friendly with excellent packaging!  

Since it was a meet up, I had the chance to talk to the man behind Well Beeing in depth about his products and the entire process of what goes behind into making them! What impressed me the most was the fact that nothing that is sold is more than 2 weeks old! Imagine! From the cleansers to the exfoliators, everything is as fresh as can be, and what a treat that is for our skin which is used to products that are filled with chemicals that extend the shelf life of a products for years. In Pakistan, the natural skin care products aren't as popular yet due to very few options, I love that well-beeing has managed to nicely fill in that gap with premium quality products that are not only great for our skin, but super budget friendly too!

Well Beeing was kind enough to give me a whole lot of products to try out, which I am currently doing! I don't want to ruin the review post by talking about how the actual products are but here's a teaser for you - I am so impressed with them that I recommended them to my best friend who is getting married and wants to stay far, far away from chemicals before her big day! They're THAT good! 

After the chit-chat, I grabbed a good old Red Velvet cupcake, some snacks and was on my way! What a lovely day, courtesy of Well Beeing!

Luscious Cosmetics BOLD Intense Eye Liner Pencils!


My go-to, never changing look is a simple liquid liner flick on my eye lids accompanied with kohl/pencil on the lower lash line. I have a habit of changing the kohl with colored pencil, leaving it bare etc, but never my liquid liner, it's a staple and personally I love the neatness that liquid liner brings. So how did these re-introduced BOLD Intense Eyeliner Eye Pencils by Luscious Cosmetics fare?

Being smudge-proof and transfer resistant is the biggest claims these pencils make, do they live upto them? I'd say majority, not all. Like with all collections, there are some that perform really well, but some performances left a bit more to be desired.When I first got these pencil, I quickly got swatchin and loved how they looked on my hands, vibrant and very smooth. Not only were they well pigmented, they lasted a long, long time as well. I didn't wipe the swatches off and got around to my business during the day, eating, cleaning up the dishes and general work, and guess what? After about 6-8 hours, I checked on the swatches, and while the intensity and 'shimmer' had dulled down a bit, they were not a mess at all! They didn't smudge or budge so kudos for that! Also the packaging is super sleek, it's matte and lovely to touch!

Trouble starts with a few of those when it comes to how they fare on your eyes. Some are absolutely amazing, while a few were disappointing. The color I was most looking forward to was Peacock, which is a vibrant green. I always love wearing green on my lower lash line since it really helps bring out the warmth in brown eyes, but sadly, this did not fare very well on my eyes. The color just wouldn't get as intense as I would like and same was the case with Amethyst. Also, comparing it with Metallic Purple 13, which was the same shade with the old formulation, that one is much more vibrant than this and has been a re-purchase for me.

Now on to the good part, the rest of them - I LOVE! Electric Blue is what I've been wearing on my lower lash-line since I got these, it stays put for ages and barely loses it's intensity after an entire long day at university! Definitely gets a double thumbs up for me. Another shade which really surprise me, is Cocoa! I've never been a fan of brown-ish eye pencils, but this has me converted! Love the way this roughly applied on the lower lash-line looks like instant smokey eyes that are day time appropriate! Definitely my second favorite out of the bunch. Copper is another color that is similar, just a tag bit lighter, and I use it for the same purpose - smoke up the lash line a bit without the use of a traditional black pencil!

Shades L-R : Rockstar, Peacock, Electric Blue, Amethyst, Moonlight, Copper, Glitz, Cocoa.
To summarize this post, I'd say go run out and get your hands on Electric Blue, Cocoa and Copper! The ones you don't need are sadly, Peacock and Amethyst! Other than that, these pencils, regardless of the shade are super smudge and budge proof.

Price - PKR 395 each

Until next time, tc
