Revlon Photoready BB Cream – Review

Assalaam-u-Alikum lovelies! 😀

I hope this post finds you all hale and hearty and each of you is having an amazing day.
Since past few days, I am planning to give my blog a major revamp. I just feel there’s something amiss and my sister (the amazing mua,blogger and multimedia artist) further stamped it by pointing out the issues. And they literally caught me off guard. *YIKES*
So yeah, my blog really needs a finishing touch and hey, I’m already on it! Wish me luck…

This happens to every novice blogger… .but hey, people it’s better to be late than never and of course you learn as you grow. And I happen to be in that phase of learning, doing and growing 🙂

Before I change my mind and start writing an entire book over this “Learning With Time Phase”, let’s take you to the Product Review Bandwagon.

Revlon Photoready BB Cream” is what you are going to read about just now.

It comes in a metallic grey and black tube packaging. With SPF-30, it sure is a jackpot. This for me has a big YES for ladies who have normal to dry skin and as for the ladies with oily skin, if you are eyeing on this or in case it’s on your wish list, my dear, just abort, I REPEAT, abort the mission of going to a make-up booth only to purchase it.

Consistency is just to the point, not at all runny nor too thick. Being a Karachi-ite, where Summers rule, it did not sit well on my skin as I have such an oily skin that you can fry up an egg or some fries if it’s your evening snack time, Duh!. Upon its application, it felt greasy and quite heavy. And, and, and it oxidized badly; did not even last for a mere 4 hours.

I used it in winters, which hardly lasted for a month here in Karachi, *sigh*. It worked perfectly fine then as I get flaky dry in winters. I did not budge for a good 6 hours; yes, it did slide off my T-zone after that. Having said that, did not feel greasy at all as that in summers. Above all, it has this amazing hydrating formula which went really well with my skin.
Ladies, it is super light-weight and evens out your skin-tone. Dewy finish, for which majority of the beauties craves for, is what this gives you.

.If you are up for a soft, natural or no-makeup make-up look, then this is your vehicle for it ;). However, you might have to run for your concealer to hide those nasty blemishes for this does not cover them well enough

Okay, I am short of vocabulary as to how must I define its fragrance. But I can tell you that I kind of dislike it. It gives me wee bit tacky eek. To many, the fragrance doesn’t bother much, but it does bother me a bit. So it’s entirely on an individual’s preference

PROS:
-Lightweight formula
-Super hydrating
-Dewy finish
-Travel-friendly
-SPF-30
-Ideal for Asian skin-tones
-Easy to blend

CONS:
-The fragrance
-Does not manage to cover blemish/spots
-Not meant for oily skin
-Should last for 8 hours at least

Have you tried the Revlon Photoready BB Cream? Thoughts?

See you soon Insha Allah,

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:

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,

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.

Garnier Simply Essentials Soothing 2 in 1 Make-up Remover – Review

Hi everyone!

I am back and this time with a bang for this is my first time ever that I am sharing my views regarding a product. 😉

Today, I am going to share my thoughts on “Garnier Simpy Essentials Soothing 2 in 1 Make-up Remover” and this is a product I have been using ever since I began playing with the make-up :D.Well, I’ll call this product my best friend, this is seriously an all-rounder and why is that so, read below to find out.
1

About the product: 
This product is a bi-phased make-up remover, which means it is 2 layered, one being the make-up removing oil (the blue liquid) and the other being the cleansing water (the plain/clear liquid) and comes with a flip-top cap. It claims no alcohol, no perfume,no residue and no rubbing and is even suitable for sensitive skin.
For usage, you have to shake it well for the two liquids to get mixed
and soak a cotton ball/pad and gently wipe the make-up of your face and eyes.
12358073_1001905826532824_1374073701_n

My opinion:
I love the fresh feeling this product’s color casts off when I see it.Well, this product is really good at breaking down the eye make-up, you really don’t have to rub or do it multiple times to remove the make-up of your eyes for it does it in one go. I am a mascara junkie and I use a waterproof mascara, and this product does a fair job of removing it, all I have to do is let it sit on my eye for a while and all the mascara just comes down on its own and then I wipe it off.
As for the face, it depends what coverage you have opted for. If it’s a full coverage foundation , you might have to go twice to remove it off. If you have a medium coverage, BB or CC cream on, or a tinted moisturizer, once is enough. The reason I call it an all-rounder is that it is pocket-friendly and effectively removes the make-up, above all, never irritates or stings the eyes.

The only problem I have with this product is the oily residue it leaves on my face, which makes me a tad bit uncomfortable. It has managed to fulfill each of its claims except for “no residue”. So yes, this is where the product lacks.

All in all, I would rate this product 9/10 and I for sure will go for it again.

See you soon. Xo!
