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 😀

A Mini Haul from MyGerrys – Hit or Miss?

Hey guys!!!

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 :).

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.

essence-cosmetic-peach-party-liquid-lipstick
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!!!

Without flash and zero edit 🙂

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,

Zoi

Quick OOTD

Hi guys!

Been MIA since long, I missed blogginggg ❤

Anyhoo, here I am with a ramble, yeah ramble would be the right word. ^_^

Post Eid-ul-Adha, it’s been jam-packed days as I was loaded with family and friends gatherings. It’s been a binging month. The BBQs, Biryanis. Pulaos and other desi galore. The browns know the drill.

Here, have a dekko 😀

Raw 😀 Marinating for my tummy ^_^

Besides, I thought, today I’ll share my outfit with you guys where I wore to one of my rendezvous with friends. I had a gala time and ate every possible piece of the BBQ, yeah, that’s where I have gotten those cheeks from you see in the picture. Heeheehee!

ootdThe top and skirt are from a local shop from a famous mall here in Karachi. And guess what, I have forgotten the name of the shop, oopsss! I am such an egg.
Anyway, I pair this outfit with 2 belts which were in my drawer having their good night’s sleep this particular night so, had to let it go. Hop over to this post, where you could meet them or on my Instagram :). They added the element BLING to my outfit. AND I LOVED IT.

Please ignore the back drop 😛 That’s how I roll. ROFL.

See you guys next time with an exciting product review, Inshaa Allah 🙂

Meanwhile,
Live, Love n Laugh ❤

NIVEA Pure Source Cleansing Foam – Review

Hello lovelies,
I hope you’re all doing really very well 

Living in a city like Karachi, humidity and pollution are two aspects which are INEVITABLE and I’m sure this distresses every girl as both are harmful to the skin. In order to make you skin look good and healthy always follow the steps below:

1) Cleanse
2) Exfoliate
3) Moisturize

Let’s discuss what product I have been using for my step 1: Cleansing.

NIVEA Pure Source Cleansing Foam (for combination skin):

DSC_9002
Since I wanted you guys to have a clear picture of the product, I translated on google whatever the product said.

Here you go:
In order for a combination and oily skin looks clean non greasy, skin requires special cleaning to help reduce excess oil as well as moisturize when cleaned
Cleaning the face without making it dry
Carnitine reduces excess oil on the skin
Cleanse and refresh skin with Aloe Vera
Sodium lactate help clean and reducing the appearance of blackheads and blemishes on the face

Result:
 A thorough clean facial skin , not greasy , soft and fresh natural .

DSC_9004

How to use:
Gently rubbed on the face and neck soaked , then massage gently in a circular motion to the top , avoiding the area around the eyes . Rinse thoroughly with warm water

not clog pores
dermatologist tested suitable for skin
does not contain preservatives and dyes

My Views:
I have been using this for almost a month and yes it is a go-go for me!  It literally does what it claims, i.e., it leaves my skin soft, non-greasy (something which I crave for in cleansing foams), and smooth.
For me it works absolutely well since it reduces the excess oil without making it go all dry and flaky.

DSC_9018

Furthermore, this product has a good creamy thick consistency, so even a teeny-tiny amount spreads and lathers up and I did not experience any kind of breakout nor any zit popped up so yes I can say undoubtedly that it goes well with “combination skins”

It quite effectively removes off makeup, be it water proof or not. It gently removes makeup off the face but yes irritates and stings when it comes to removing makeup off your eyes so this is the only thing that disappointed me otherwise I love it.

This product is available at all the leading superstores in Karachi. I purchased mine from The Imtiaz Super Store. It costs PKR 265 and is 100 ml.

What’s your favourite cleanser? I’d love to read  new recommendations, please feel free to share in the comments section below 🙂

The Skin18 Series – Part 2

Salaam-namaste! 🙂

I hope this post of mine finds you all in the pink of health. As for me guys, I am in desperate need of prayers. Sigh!
(Results calling!!!!!!)

So lovelies, today I  bring you the second part of my Skin18 shenanigans. SOC 3D Beauty Serum Face Mask Pack (Rice Wine Sheet Mask) is the second product of the 4 I have tried.

Product Characteristics: SOC Rice Wine Mask sheet with active ingredients from three different types of ancient rice that moisturizes, nourishes and firms skin from within the intensive mask process.

My experience: I, before applying it, kept it in the refrigerator for about 15-20 mins for that cool effect. After cleansing, I put this on in alignment to the contours of my face and popped in my favourite movie to relish the mini-spa therapy.

After straight 30 mins, I, after making sure, that my skin has fully absorbed the serum, put the mask off. In my view, this mask is not meant for ladies with oily skin. I have an oily skin, and this mask did not suit me at all as I noticed a greasy film all over my face. Moreover, my skin felt a bit sticky which wasn’t the case at all with the Fresh Fruit Avocado Real Natural Mask Pack I used mentioned in my SKIN18 series review earlier.

Also, I felt a sudden urge to wash my face due to the stickiness and tacky eek I constantly felt after its usage. Having said that, I am sure this SOC 3D Beauty Serum Face Mask Pack (Rice Wine Sheet Mask) will definitely go well with the ladies with dry skin. It’s super hydrating and moisturizing, which I on my skin felt a bit overboard. So yeah, dry skinned beauties, this one’s for you :).

Pros:
-Sheet masks are easy to handle and use
-No rinse needed
-If you have dry skin, you’ll love it
-Pocket-friendly

Cons:
-If you have oily skin, it isn’t meant for you.
-Oily skin ones might feel the urge to rinse off the residue

Until next time girls,
From me to you,
With love ❤

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 🙂 ❤
