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!
I hope you all are fit, fine and shining ❤
As for me guys, I am gearing up for my university test. So when you say your prayer, do not, I repeat, do not forget to take my name and pray that I clear it and get through 🙂
And I just realized that I am blabbering. Hehe!
Let’s get to the fulcrum of this post :).
So, I was eager to purchase this because of its name, you know this “Lip Glazed Paint” really attracted me. And I got it :D.
The packaging is glazed, as the name suggests. Also some may find it eye-piercing with that retro touch, if I make sense ^_^. The glossy pink packaging and gold lid makes it easy to identify out of your vanity. I kind of like these sort of packaging, so yeah, I give it full points on that
Just with a paint, you would need several coats of it for that smooth layer. I am not that very happy with the formulation and the train of coats I need to apply for an even layer. At the end, I feel frustrated. Having said that, the color appeal is quite good. The color is very pretty and has the right amount of glossiness.
Coming towards the applicator, I am not at all fond of such slanted applicators. I literally struggle and never ever have I been able to get that perfect lip shape with them. I had to go for a lip brush every time I used this, firstly as it involves quite a few layering and the applicator kind of takes the product away and makes it look patchy and secondly, like I said I could not manage to make the lip shape, in that case, a lip brush saves the day.
Longevity and Scent:
It only managed to last for 2-3 hours. And man, it was disappointing. If you eat or drink a tad bit, it even doesn’t stay up to 2 hours. You would need several touch ups through out your event or whatever occasion.
I have a love and hate relationship with its scent. Sometimes it bothers me and sometimes it don’t. I think here, mood takes the lead, ha!
Speaking of this, it has a minty scent; I also felt a cooling sensation on my lips for a few minutes due to the ingredient Mentha Arvensis (Peppermint) Leaf Oil which did not mind at all.
Price: Rs: 350 from MyGerrys
-Good color pay off
-You dislike the applicator
-You need several coats for smooth finish
-You dislike minty scent and the cooling sensation
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 😀
I hope this post finds you all in the pink of health, Inshaa Allah!
Today I’ll be taking forward the last post of mine which you guys must have seen earlier 🙂
Here you go.
To begin with, I really like the packaging; very sturdy and easy to handle. The product is easy to squeeze out of the flip-flop cap and surprisingly, it allows quite effectively to handle the quantity as well which mostly doesn’t happen with flip-flop caps.
I have an attraction for products with “oil free” written on them so, naturally, I had to purchase this one. But let me tell you, I first bought the smaller size for in case I was to be disappointed, I’d overcome it in a matter of minutes, haha!
I am an oil factory, and upon application, it blended well with my skin type. I was truly elated to see how non-greasy it is and you don’t feel as if you have a layer on. It is super duper lightweight and a little goes a long way; a pea-sized amount works well enough.
Not to forget that this works really great under makeup. I slather it all over my face and neck before using makeup and it helps my skin in being super hydrated and also keeps makeup from collapsing 😀
For many people, its scent seemed somewhat of a hospital one, but I kinda liked it so yeah, you got to decide that on your own whether or not you like it.
I have forgotten the price tag, my sincere apologies! :(. However, I can assure you that it’s under 200 PKR and guys so is therefore super pocket-friendly. And I think, for the price, it is certainly a good catch 🙂
This is it lovelies! I shall catch up with you all with yet another review :).
Soooo, another week passed without a post 😦 I wonder what is wrong with me.
Anyhoo, I am back and will defo try to maintain my previous consistent approach.
I kid you not when I say I am not at all a market rambler. Hard to believe? I understand since many are only comfortable with going to markets and physically feel the quality and all. In my case, I am rather comfortable with the *click* *click* *click* philosophy :D. I love shopping from the comfort of my home and feel extremely paranoid in the markets and get overly irritated whilst shopping. Yes, there are days when I do feel like going to markets, but only when I need some footwear or something in a product that I suspect might bring me a problem; so to be on the safe side, I make my way into the markets much to my chagrin. But guys, such days are rare, online shopping always is my first priority :D.
A few days back, I was looking for some reliable outlet to shop a few things I have been eyeing on since like ages. Reliable as in both secure shipping and of course the price. And that’s when MyGerrys (mygerrys.com) came at my rescue. It brings you a whole array of goods, from clothing, cosmetic, to kitchenware, home decor and gadgets.
The products which I shopped from MyGerrys were L.A Girl Glazed Lip Paint in shade Tease, L.A Girl Matte Pigment Gloss in shade Frisky and MISS SPORTY Morning Baby! Cream Blush in shade 001 Pink Flush.
For me guys, the shopping experience from MyGerrys is hands down a hit! The products I bought are a rare sight in Pakistan and to acquire them is such a hassle. After exploring through many Facebook pages which deals in foreign brands, I was very unhappy as they were charging literally double of everything in addition to the delivery costs. Then I shifted to other online portals, there either my desired products were unavailable or were at the high price tags. Ultimately, everything was getting beyond my budget.
I am happy that I came across MyGerrys as it offers the products at quite a reasonable price as compared to other portals you would find the products at. You’ll come to know why when I’ll mention the prices of the products I bought and trust meee, you’ll be blown away :D.
If I talk about the shipping and handling, the only thing that bothered me was that it did not fulfill its claim of delivering within 24 hours. I got my order after two days to which I was quite surprised and disappointed as I obviously anticipated a 24 hour one. Having said that, my disappointment soon vanished as soon as came across the excellent packaging. I am sorry I couldn’t photograph it, but seriously, it was very well packed. It came in a big envelope-type case and inside the products were securely enclosed in bubble wraps; perfectly taped and wrapped. It took me at least a decade to unpack the things, but C’mon, you can definitely tolerate that for the sake of getting your products fit and fine :D. I find the shipping and handling extremely prompt and safe if I compare it to the Facebook pages and sellers.
Another cherry on the top was is that MyGerrys offers free delivery, YES, you read it right, free delivery and that too without any minimum shopping limit within Karachi. As soon as I read this, I was like whaaaat?
It is a rare thing when you do online shopping, so I was truly elated and couldn’t take in my rabbit teeth in ^_^.
This lazy bunny is ecstatic to see the rise in portals like MyGerrys as it makes this bunny’s life easier and happier and leaves plenty of time to munch on her carrots.
I, hereby, declare, MyGerrys as my go-to shopping spot from now onward. 🙂
I was tad bit occupied, as a result was unable to photograph so here are some snapshots for your convenience of the products I bought. Have a dekko :).
Okay, let’s get started with the lipstick’s review :). This is going to be one hell of a hard hitting one.
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.
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.
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.
It would take you ages to apply this lipstick. Putting and blending it on, both, my friends, are time-consuming and utterly frustrating.
-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.
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! 😉
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.
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.
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.
-Good color payoff
-Apt amount of shine
-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 :).
