Golden Rose Satin Smoothing Fluid Foundation – Review

Assalaam-u-Alaikum lovelies! (Peace be upon you)

Before I dive into the review, I’d love to know the foundations you all have been using and loving lately. Share it in the comments section below 🙂

…And here I present you the “Golden Rose Satin Smoothing Fluid Foundation.”

12735658_1036875656369174_6188913_n

The Golden Rose is one brand I have been familiar with since forever as my mother and sister were and are ardent users of it. And now I am taking the legacy forward 😀 *clap*

So, Golden Rose is a Turkish brand and this foundation comes in a black packaging, which I have misplaced somewhere, therefore, wasn’t able to photograph it. 😦
Any-hoo, this product has SPF 15 and Vitamin-E. *yay*

My thoughts:

I love the shape of the bottle it comes in. Having said that, I do not like the closing cap for it is too small to handle and uncomfortable (if I make sense). As far as the texture is concerned, it’s gorgeous; the consistency is just apt.

I am shade N-24, and now that I am talking about the range of shades, let me tell you that it has a huge range of shades so there I am quite sure none of you will face that difficulty of unavailability of the right shade ;). Speaking of this, there is one thing common in this range, which is that every foundation has pink undertone. It works fine for me, but like I always say what works for me might not work for you.

Matte is the finish I crave for, and this foundation manages to give that perfect matte finish. My sister quite liked it on me and considering the fact that she is a MUA, if she stamps something, it is a win-win thing for me 😀
I wore this foundation in two very important occasions, and the longevity of this product impressed me. Having worn it without a primer and a setting spray, it managed to last for about 7-8 hours which I find super-awesome, no?

Beauties with oily skin are going to love it. As per my experience, it will not go too well with dry skinned girls.

Application: Thoroughly moisturize your face beforehand. I apply it using a damp sponge and on top of it gives it a light dust of Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder; another product that is my absolute favourite and even raved about in my last post.

Here are some pictures of mine wearing this foundation. These are original; no filter has been used.

Pros:
-Great longevity.
-Matte finish.
-Huge range of shades.
-Game changer for oily skinned lovelies.

Cons:
-If you do not like pink undertone foundations.
-If you find it too drying.
-The closing cap annoys you.
-Not meant for dry skin.

I got mine for 1200PKR from Imtiaz Superstore.

Have you tried the Golden Rose Satin Smoothing Fluid Foundation? Thoughts?

Much love,

It’s All About Almond Oil!

Hey everyone,

All these years, I have been on the run for that perfect moisturizer that gets my skin smooth and non-flaking. I have a skin that gets super oily in summer and super dry in winters; it gets dry to such an extent that it starts to come off as flakes and gives that tacky eek if I apply anything on my face.

That’s when the Almond Oil came down as an angel! 🙂 Below is the picture of what I use:

rsz_12714020_1037547392968667_972147689_n
Mundial’s 100% Pure Almond Oil.

Previously, the use of almond oil was only limited to hair, but about a month ago I started using it on my face as a moisture every night and the results were phenomenal.
My skin got back to normal, felt soft and smooth. I visibly noticed a clearer skin and an even skin-tone too. I have a few spots on my chin that my zits left, and this almond oil is doing a fairly good job in clearing them; they are much lighter now. ^_^

Almond oil works well for me for both hair and skin. In fact, I highly recommend it as a moisturizer and I am sure it won’t at all disappoint you!

Some essential tips:
-Make sure your face is properly cleansed before you apply it as a moisturizer.

-Do not use bitter almond oil for its purpose is of only scent or flavour. For therapeutic purposes, it is sweet/pure almond oil, which does the job.

If you give it a shot, do share your experience with me in the comments section below lovelies. 🙂

Much love,
Zk.

The Toothpaste Wonder

Hello everyone,

A big virtual hug to y’all!!!

It’s been a bumpy week for me. My dear aunt’s wedding is just around the corner and here I got myself into the trap of zits! 😦

f0cd9cd7076ff4544118d24ee4615516I had gotten one on my left cheek and one on my chin *yikes*! And that’s when the toothpaste wonder happen.

Yes, you heard it right! It’s the toothpaste and not the power-puff girls which saved the day 😀

I was whining to my friend when she told me this ever-so wondrous remedy and the moment it worked for me, I was like *I got to share this on my blogggg!*

So yeah, whenever you happen to encounter these nasty zits, just dab a pea sized amount of toothpaste over it and leave it overnight. The next morning you’ll wake up and boom! You will notice it visibly shrank and redness-free. You can wipe it off with a damp cotton ball. Repeat it for a few days till you notice it completely disappeared.

It worked for me and I hope it works for you too :). Do let me know your experiences in the comments section below.

Much love,
Zk.
