2017 ft. Skin 18!

Hola!

I hope you all are fine and shining bright. As for me, I am drowning in flu and in the pool of medicines. *sigh*

2016 has been a rough year for me. But there is always some light in the dark tunnel and that light was my admission into the university after long stressful days. Phew!
Wish  me luck, guys! ❤

And with 2017, I am going to bring you another skin care series in collaboration with Skin18. Previously, it had been quite a satisfying experience. Let’s see how it turns out this time.

This is it, mates! A very Happy New Year 2017 to you all. I hope and pray that happiness and peace prevails. Sending you all lots of best wishes, prayers, love and of course a little fairy dust never hurts. See you real soon Xo!

Zoi.

Makeup Revolution London Amazing Beloved Lipstick – Review and Swatch

A few days back, I rejoined the Makeup Revolution and got my second product 😀

A student here guysss, so the makeup beginnings are humble 😛

By the by, you can check out my first try, which was a powder blush and a total hit for me.

Makeup Revolution London Wow! (Powder) Blush – Review

Okay, let’s get started with the lipstick’s review :). This is going to be one hell of a hard hitting one.

Product Claims:

Don a striking and stunning look with this ‘Beloved Amazing’ lipstick from the house of Makeup Revolution London. This lipstick ensures a long-lasting lustre and color. This lipstick will lend you soft, smooth and supple lips.

makeup-revolution-amazing-beloved_2
Packaging:

It dwells in a cylindrical tubing and has a matching lid with that of the shade which I find really amazing, as it makes everything easy; from locating to quick decision making whether you would want to go for the lipstick with the makeup look you have created or not.

My Experience:

I was smitten by the lovely cool toned coral neon-ish pink shade and that’s what compelled me into purchasing it, but to my utter disappointment, my world crashed down as it did not fall upon my expectations. *Sigh*

It is matte formula-wise with extremely low pigmentation. Upon first application, the color doesn’t show at all. You got to literally drag it 3-4 times for color, but then it still appears as patchy, dull and not at all smooth. Lovelies with highly pigmented lips would literally hit their faces on the wall out of sheer annoyance.
Even after you use a balm under it, it just doesn’t work. I really can not tell you guys about whether it transfers or not, bleeds or not because in the first place, the lipstick has to be there on your lips for you to comment on it. And for me, guys, it was barely there.

With flash

It would take you ages to apply this lipstick. Putting and blending it on, both, my friends, are time-consuming and utterly frustrating.

Pros:
-Pocket-friendly

Cons:
-Poor pigmentation
-Patchy application
-It literally tires you out whilst you apply it

I got mine from www.daraz.pk and it is priced for PKR 225. Let me know if it worked for you in the comments section below :). Thank you for stopping by <3.

P.s: Had a bad lightning day for photos… .

The Prisma Bandwagon

Heya!

Prisma
             Prisma

                          Prisma!!!!!!!!!

Each of my social media handle is flooded with this… . Intrigued, I gave it a shot.

I quite like it guys. Loving the artistic vibe it has to radiate. Other than this, amidst all the recent calamities the world dealt with, I think such applications take you to that dream escape where everything seems serene and stable. So for me, the release of this application was like a fresh air coupled with a splash of colors and loads of good vibes.

This was my picture, what is yours? Share with me 🙂 ❤

Summer DIY!

Summer is that kingdom, of which Karachi is the king!
And I was a happy commoner residing within it until the  King declared war with its own people, defying the love and loyalty we have always had to offer. 😦

My slogan: Beat the Heat!
Their slogan: Heat shall prevail!

During the face-off on the battle ground, they started shooting their oily missiles, but fear not friends; I outnumbered them! 😉

Here, I bring you one strategy to combat the opponent if any such thing happens to you :).
egg

Grab an egg, separate the whites from the yolk and  apply the whites evenly onto your face. Let it dry. Apply a second layer and again leave it to dry. After you have applied the third layer and that too has dried, wash it off thoroughly with water. And voila, the victory shall be at your feet ;). You will slowly experience a reduced oil-skin and upon application twice a week, a drastic change shall be evident.

I hope this helps you out and you get your due rights like me :D. Please do share your experiences in the comment section with me!

Love you all!

Unboxing – Dresslink Review

Hi my girls!

Imagine! You wake up to a pouch full of surprises.
Eeekk! I had one such morning and my jaw dropped over the sight of some really gorgeous goodies.

Okay, okay.. . Let’s just stop with the riddles and head straight to the point 😀

Dresslink, about which I happened to discuss in my previous post , was kind enough to send me a gift hamper which had 2 amazing chic dresses and a make-up sponge.

Okay I apologize for such a haphazard picture of the parcel, hehe. I actually was so excited to unwrap it that I forgot to click it beforehand. After unwrapping, it clicked me to capture a snap of the parcel and so the result is a tad bit distorted.

12966799_1070943826295690_1354487761_n

Now,now, nowww! The dresses!!!
The sizes sent did justice, and the quality is absolutely wow. Trust me when I say this; I am not at all exaggerating. My mom’s really very fussy about fabric and its quality and when this managed to impress her, I literally felt accomplished, haha :D. She loved the goodies sent more than me actually. Woot woot!

This black and white maxi dress has an exquisite net bodice which adds that oomph element to this dress. The flare is cherry on top, crafted beautifully, it gracefully accentuates the body and brings that correct flow a maxi must. Perfect for parties, friends get-together or even a farewell party 😉


This rusty brown top is perfect for a lunch with a friend, or even as go-to college/university wear.  Modest length and the cute mini-flare makes it a perfect dress. The buttons on the bodice further adds a contemporary drama and makes it look smart.

The makeup-sponge works really well too, be it, damp or dry. It blends out the foundation evenly, is travel-friendly and is a good dupe to the beauty blender. What more can I ask? 😉


Some statement necklaces can be worn to bring that  bling-game to these dresses. What say, ladies? 😉

Love these products? Oh, they are just a click away:

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 😀

download
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.

Have you tried the Lashem products? Share your experiences in the comments section below beauties 🙂

Much love,
Zk
