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,

Golden Rose Satin Smoothing Fluid Foundation – Review

Assalaam-u-Alaikum lovelies! (Peace be upon you)

Before I dive into the review, I’d love to know the foundations you all have been using and loving lately. Share it in the comments section below 🙂

…And here I present you the “Golden Rose Satin Smoothing Fluid Foundation.”

12735658_1036875656369174_6188913_n

The Golden Rose is one brand I have been familiar with since forever as my mother and sister were and are ardent users of it. And now I am taking the legacy forward 😀 *clap*

So, Golden Rose is a Turkish brand and this foundation comes in a black packaging, which I have misplaced somewhere, therefore, wasn’t able to photograph it. 😦
Any-hoo, this product has SPF 15 and Vitamin-E. *yay*

1922602_1036875636369176_1717223379_n

My thoughts:

I love the shape of the bottle it comes in. Having said that, I do not like the closing cap for it is too small to handle and uncomfortable (if I make sense). As far as the texture is concerned, it’s gorgeous; the consistency is just apt.

I am shade N-24, and now that I am talking about the range of shades, let me tell you that it has a huge range of shades so there I am quite sure none of you will face that difficulty of unavailability of the right shade ;). Speaking of this, there is one thing common in this range, which is that every foundation has pink undertone. It works fine for me, but like I always say what works for me might not work for you.

Matte is the finish I crave for, and this foundation manages to give that perfect matte finish. My sister quite liked it on me and considering the fact that she is a MUA, if she stamps something, it is a win-win thing for me 😀
I wore this foundation in two very important occasions, and the longevity of this product impressed me. Having worn it without a primer and a setting spray, it managed to last for about 7-8 hours which I find super-awesome, no?

Beauties with oily skin are going to love it. As per my experience, it will not go too well with dry skinned girls.

Application: Thoroughly moisturize your face beforehand. I apply it using a damp sponge and on top of it gives it a light dust of Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder; another product that is my absolute favourite and even raved about in my last post.

Here are some pictures of mine wearing this foundation. These are original; no filter has been used.

Pros:
-Great longevity.
-Matte finish.
-Huge range of shades.
-Game changer for oily skinned lovelies.

Cons:
-If you do not like pink undertone foundations.
-If you find it too drying.
-The closing cap annoys you.
-Not meant for dry skin.

I got mine for 1200PKR from Imtiaz Superstore.

Have you tried the Golden Rose Satin Smoothing Fluid Foundation? Thoughts?

Much love,
Zk.

Maybelline Rocket Volum’ Express Mascara – Review

Hi everyone!

Welcome to 2016’s first review-post of mine 😀 *Woot woot*

Today, I am going to share my experience with the ”Maybelline Rocket Volum’ Express Mascara”. Well lovelies, Maybelline is one drugstore brand that *hands down* is one of my most favourite brand for Mascaras! They have amazing Mascaras and trust me when I say, no matter what Mascara I have used from this brand, it has always managed to surprise me for good. 12468007_1012636568793083_164332636_nn.jpg

There is something I would like to put forward before I begin my review. First and foremost, remember! Mascaras are only meant to enhance your natural lashes. When it comes to mascaras, it is not only the product on which the result depends on but also your eyelashes. The results depend on how thick your lashes are and in addition to this, the length of your eyelashes is another major factor. Secondly, what proves to be suitable for my eyelashes may not suit yours. The suitability is interrelated with the above first stance, I mentioned and also factors like, climate and your skin type. If you have a humid climate and an oily skin, some mascaras might not suit you while some may. My suggestion in such a case is to go for a good waterproof formula for better results.

Anyhoo, let’s begin the review 🙂

Packaging: The packaging is sturdy and glamorous! I loved the bold colors used. Electric blue with shocking-pink makes an attractive combo.12463734_1012640038792736_557778046_nnn

My thoughts: I have been using this mascara for long and yeah I love it! It is not at all flaky and above all, with this mascara I faced minimal clump-age. Yay!

I have this problem with me that often when I use mascara, I feel as if I put on some weights on my eyes but with this I feel quite light. It has this lightweight formula which pays off a good finish without making you feel burdened on the eyes. It holds the curls of the lashes really very well and lasts all day. Considering the climate here in Karachi which is hot the most of the year, this product does not disappoint for it does not smudge, so yes no panda eyes :D. I sometimes wear eye-lenses, and this product does not bring up any obstacle and I sport my lenses with this mascara comfortably.

I, naturally, have thin lashes, and this mascara adds up quite a nice volume as well as length to them. My sister has got some real thick lashes, and when she applies this mascara, oh my! it looks as if she has some falsies on.

To many, removal of this mascara seems quite tough, but for me, I think a good oil-based remover does the job! It is no rocket science to get rid of this mascara at the end of the day. All you need is the right make-up remover, or olive oil can be your savior! 🙂

Have you tried the Maybelline Rocket Volum’ Express? Thoughts?

See you next time!
