Youtube Beginnings!

Hi guyssss!

*Phew*

Okay… .after much reluctance, hesitation and what not, I finally gave in and consented for a YouTube channel with the sister dearest OR you can say it’s more or less reverse. We both were equally skeptical. And man, I literally had to hop out of my comfort zone to do this. I have never been this transparent, you see.

We came off from a party, and then quickly sat down; as we came back with a pact which said, “No More Procrastination”. We, the camera and guys, our first SHOT! 🙂

It would mean a lot if you guys could go and give a watch to my first video ever and of course like, comment and SUBSCRIBE!

Let me know in the comments section below of what do you think. Any suggestions or feedback is more than welcome. It’s been such a wonderful experience at blogging and I hope I get to have the same with Vlogging as well.

Sneak Peek: Get to know me a little in the video and let’s be friends forever 😀

Essence Liquid Lipstick Peach Party -Review

Hola!!!

They say, “Give a woman the right lipstick and she can conquer the world”.

Does Essence Liquid Lipstick in the shade Peach Party live up to this popular quote? Read to find out! 😉

essence-cosmetic-peach-party

Product Claim/Description:
Liquid love! This new formula combines the best of both lipstick and lip gloss. Get the impact and coverage of a lipstick with the moisturizing shine of a gloss.

Price: 430 PKR.

Packaging:
It comes in a wee cutie plump bottle and contains 0.13 oz of the product. I love how the packaging is in color coordination with the lipstick shade, as if you own a plethora of lip colors, there would be no hassle in locating the color you desire. In addition to this, the applicator is flat from both the ends, which personally appeals me as it give me better control unlike those full round pointy applicators.

My Thoughts:
Firstly, let’s talk about the formula. Well, it is thicker and sticky considering that it’s a hybrid formula and it has to give that consistency which a lipstick gives. Having said that, it settles more like a gloss, but gives a medium coverage which matches to that of lipstick. Moreover, the shine is just to the point, not so much and not too less. Here, the Essence Cosmetics have done pure justice to the concept of the hybrid formula. It wins it here for me.

The shade is a beautiful baby pink kind of, and would match with lighter-skinned beauties. The pigmentation is quite strong and upon its application I noticed a subtle glow on my face. I don’t know, but it really is that color which lifts up your complexion and brightens up your overall look.
As for longevity, it manages to last for good 4-5 hours. The best part is, the color doesn’t transfer and you can eat and drink as you please. Phew!!!

The cherry on top is that it is super duper hydrating. It does not feel dry and is very moisturizing. Absolutely love the moist feel over my lips. ❤
And, and, anddd I absolutely love the biscuit-ti fragrance. Creamy and yummyilicious!

Now comes the only downside I encountered, which is that as you apply, it settles more or less like a patch. It doesn’t glide on smoothly; even if you double up the application, it just doesn’t go smoothly and sticks onto your lips in small portions (if I make sense). I grab a lipstick brush to smooth it out a little and to some extent I manage to overcome this dilemma.

Yays:
-Adorable packaging
-Super hydrating
-Good color payoff
-Excellent longevity
-Apt amount of shine

Nays:
-It settles patchily
-You think the quantity is too less for the price
-You think the color doesn’t go with your skin or is too pink to handle
-If the biscuit-ti fragrance bothers you
-You expected a fuller coverage

I purchased mine from www.daraz.pk. It is my go-to shopping stop; extremely reliable and hassle free :).

Until next time, enjoy this Peach party and I shall catch up with you all in my next post!

Lots of love,

The Skin18 Series – Part 3

I love pandas!
I even daydream about having one as my pet 😀
Just can’t get enough of their adorableness… .

But oh well, since it’s not meant to be, I pacify myself with this panda looking sheet mask ^_^

Without any further delay folks, let’s dive into the post… .

L’affair Animal Whitening Panda Mask is the 3rd of the 4th products I was sent to try.

L'affair 1 (1)L'affair 1 (2)

How to Use:
-After cleansing, take out a sheet and stick it to the whole face evenly.
-In 15~20 minutes, remove the sheet and pat the remains on the skin to be absorbed.
-It is OK to apply the remains to the body after use.

My Views:

Like the previous two masks, I popped this on after keeping it in the fridge for about half an hour. I absolutely love the cool feeling the moment I put it on.

This is how you’ll look like 😉

After 20 minutes, I visibly saw a difference. My face was instantly bright and squeaky clean. Moreover, it, as well, sat down with my skin type, which is oily, quite well. Yes, it got a little sticky, but I did not feel the urge to wash the residue off like I felt with that of the previous one.
It had quite an appealing scent; did not bother me at all.

Subtle, soft and brighter skin is what L’affair Animal Whitening Panda Mask is capable of. Grab yours before the crazy discount gets off!!! 😀

Price: $3.oo
