Rimmel London Wake Me Up Wonder’full Mascara – Review

Assalaam-u-Alaikum beautylillies ❤

So here comes a review post after quite long; I believe 😀

Mascara! My absolute favourite cosmetic amongst all and today I hereby proclaim my love for the “Rimmel London Wake Me Up Wonder’full” mascara. Want to know why? Let’s get to the review-reading ride!!!!

Rimmel’s idea of coordinating its packaging with that of its ingredient,i.e., cucumber is quite unique. The bling-game is strong here; I love the metallic streak the green packaging has. On top of it, the text in orange adds that perfect oomph to it. It is easy to spot amidst all the makeup on your dressing table whilst you are getting ready or when you are on the mascara hunt in your bag (girls know the bag drill ;)). To sum it up, 10/10 on the packaging <3.

Coming towards its formula, I really like how light-weight and clump-free it is. You are not going to get that heavy feeling upon application of this mascara. In addition to this, it is black, blacker and blackest (if I make sense,hehe *winks*).
The applicator or brush is finely designed according to the lash line and takes up each and every lash coating it perfectly well.

The scent is sure not to miss! Not many mascaras have it and I don’t know why, but I get that dreamy sensation because of the lovely scent it has. It really isn’t overpowering and quite appealing.

Okay, this mascara disappoints me when it comes to holding the lash curl. Yes, ladies, it is not so good at it *sigh*. It adds amazing length and indeed add that voluminous effect to my lashes, but… . does not hold my lash curl long enough. 😦

Pros:
-Light-weight
-Clump-free
-Gorgeous scent
-Perfectly designed applicator

Cons:
-Does not hold the lash curl long enough
-If you do not like its scent, it isn’t for you.

Have you tried the Rimmel London Wake Me Up Wonder’full Mascara? Thoughts?

See you soon,
Zk 🙂

Wishlist 2016 – Part 2

Hello lovelies,

Let’s just dive directly into the post. Today, I shall discuss my discovery “Lashem” with you all!

So what is it and why am I sharing with you all. Well, here you go:

The Lashem is a cosmetic brand which aims to cater to women in the most natural way possible. It caught my eye for the fact that its paraben and cruelty-free; such brands are in rarity and I am happy to find an addition to my list of cruelty-free products :).

It has some a-m-a-z-i-n-g range of  anti-aging creams, mascara, and eyelash/eyebrow boosters and I am already drooling. Let’s begin what exactly I am drooling on,

Ultimate Lash Enhancing 5 piece set with gift bag:
This is a bundle of items from which I am literally unable to get my eyes off. It has everything a woman could ask for. This bundle consists of:

Colour Strokes Liquid Eyeliner – Blackest Black:
Who doesn’t like a good black winged liner? I am crazy about it, and would love to see what magic does this product brings to my eyes. 😉

Extensions In A Bottle Mascara With Lash Enhancing Serum:
Not everyone is blessed with long and thick lashes and unfortunately I am one of them. And if this brings that fullness to my lashes just as any falsies; then what more do I need in my life 😀 So, here it goes into my wishlist 😀

All Eyes On You Eyelash & Brow Enhancing Serum:
Owner of light brows and thin lashes, I therefore need it desperately!!!

3 In 1 Eye Bright:
I am a brown girl, and dark circles are one common trait in us. So naturally, 3 in 1 Eye bright goes straight into my wishlist …. 😀

Lashem Picture Perfect Instant Wrinkle Reducer:

This is something I’d love to present to my mother. So yeah, I’ll definitely get my hands on this and see does this really proves to be useful in reducing the wrinkles which my mother wishes to reduce.

5002_pictureperfect_plainopen_1The Lashem is based in United States and can be shopped at https://www.lashem.com/.
I wish, wish and wish that Lashem very soon make its way to Pakistan so that I and many other girls like me can enjoy and purchase easily the amazing range it has in store.

Much love,

From the heart

I had the time of my life today 🙂

Amidst all the CIE tension and tough studying hours, I and my friends took some time out and met. Oh my, how time flies!!!!

It felt only yesterday that we were in school, trying our best to get rid of the O’level bug…. .only to get stung by the A’level bug.

Sigh!!!

We spent good 3-4 hours together and in those few hours, I rediscovered myself. Life is so short, and we spend the half of it wearing that unnecessary cap of stress and tensions. We have gotten ourselves TRAPPED; some under studies, some under work pressure and the list goes on and on.

I did not know that I was craving for these few hours of laughter and togetherness. I had taken those lemons too seriously that life brought in I forgot that once squeezed, it turns into lemonade which is meant to rejuvenate you.

So there you go people! When life gives you lemon, make lemonade ;). Let your hair loose, meet your loved ones and savour this ultimate gift we all call LIFE which God has given you. Sometime all you need is a best friend therapy or the hug from your mother, and trust me the world seems better 🙂 Well.. at least it did for me and I wish the same for you.

Food For Your Face – Review

The town’s ablaze with firefly!!!!
The firefly girl is doing wonders!!!!

The girl who was enthralling all of us with her quirky and creative spark is on the road of making it big in the arena of beauty. Yes you heard it right!

“Food For Your Face” is a venture by the Firefly girl Varah Musavvir which aims to cater girls and women across varying age groups with different types of skin with its all-natural and herbal skin care range. Prepared from natural and wholesome ingredients with essential oils infused in, this range has already managed to get its wing into many vanities in no time.

And I am one of the proud owners of such a vanity 😉

I bought 2 cleansers, namely Crange Maker – touch of cranberries and orange and Magical Mulberry – lovely floral and fruit infused from “The Crazy Cleanser” range and 2 face packs, From Cleo with Love (tuberose) and A Tangerine Affair (citrus pomegranate) from “The Fixer Upper Face Packs” range, each for PKR 650.

1
If you ask me to rate the two cleansers, I’d rate Magical Mulberry as 1st and Crange Maker as 2nd.  Both suited my oily skin, but it was Mulberry who did a fine job; I felt my skin clearer and even with it the most.
I have pigmentation around my mouth area, and with these cleansers I visibly noticed them getting lighter and can see my skin quite even now. I literally felt as if every dirt and impurities has been flushed off of my face. Yay! So a big thumbs up to these crazy cleansers. (y)

Now come the face packs/masks. Well… . My sister grabbed the “Tangerine Affair” before I could get my hands on it so yeah I suggest you guys take a look at her blog to know her experience with it and also her take on the other products HERE.

As for me, I am head over heels over “From Cleo with Love”. I use it with fuller’s earth (Multani Mitti). What I do is mix this face pack with rose water and fuller’s earth, initially, it was an experiment, but now it is something I swear by. I thought it would leave my skin dry, but to my surprise it did not happen at all. It worked perfectly and my skin actually felt moist and revived.

What common among these products is the yummy-licious fragrance! You are absolutely going to love ‘em. The balance is just right. You’ll feel your face radiant , your air afresh and your mood all lightened up. 😀

All in all, the products are finely milled and in my view you are not going to get such a treat of all natural and herbal skin care products in an amount of PKR 650 and that too home-made under extreme care. You can manage the consistency as per your liking; you can use it in so many ways. The firefly girl and Mama firefly’s invention are indeed L A U D A B L E!

P.s: I advise you all to please do a patch test before you begin using them on your pretty faces as what works for me might not work for you.
