Sneak Peek – Review

Hey beautylilies,

I so damn wanted to come up with an Eid post, but to my utmost disappointment, my photographer cousin apparently has misplaced my pictures 😦 (I am going to kill him for this).

Anyhoo, while I am trying my level best to get the pictures back, I thought I’ll give you a sneak peek of my next post 😉

Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free Foundation Stick – Review

I have already used foundation in stick form by the German brand Kryolan, but when my eye caught Maybelline‘s version of the stick foundation, I had to give it a shot.

Product Description: It’s one-step perfection.  The first of its kind – lightweight gel stick foundation with an anti-shine powder core

Packaging: It comes in a cylindrical swivelled tube; the transparency of the cap allowing a peek into the shade of the foundation.

My thoughts: Talking about its formulation, its creamy and a perfect one, but the fact that it it meant for oily-skin is downright a wrong claim. I kid you not guys, I have a kind of oily-skin that you can even fry an egg, and this foundation really doesn’t sit well with it.

I just slather it over my face and blend it with a beauty blender.  Speaking of this, it blends really well and quite easily. However, after only 3-4 hours, my face looked as if I had a bottle of oil toppled over my face. The element “shine-free” , sadly, wasn’t there. To add more to my disappointment, it oxidizes real quick and bad. *sigh*

In my view, I believe its opposite the claim that it is formulated keeping in mind the oily skin, i.e., it would be more suitable for a lady who has dry skin. But still, longevity issue is a problem as it only lives up till 3-4 hours.

Pros:
-Travel friendly

Cons:
-Oxidizes
-Not meant for oily skin

Price and Availability: I got mine from Imtiaz Superstore. Other than this, it is available at all Maybelline booths at leading stores nationwide. It is priced at PKR 1699.

Until next time,
Love and fairy-dust all the way!❤

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.

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 🙂

Food For Your Face – Review

The town’s ablaze with firefly!!!!
The firefly girl is doing wonders!!!!

The girl who was enthralling all of us with her quirky and creative spark is on the road of making it big in the arena of beauty. Yes you heard it right!

“Food For Your Face” is a venture by the Firefly girl Varah Musavvir which aims to cater girls and women across varying age groups with different types of skin with its all-natural and herbal skin care range. Prepared from natural and wholesome ingredients with essential oils infused in, this range has already managed to get its wing into many vanities in no time.

And I am one of the proud owners of such a vanity 😉

I bought 2 cleansers, namely Crange Maker – touch of cranberries and orange and Magical Mulberry – lovely floral and fruit infused from “The Crazy Cleanser” range and 2 face packs, From Cleo with Love (tuberose) and A Tangerine Affair (citrus pomegranate) from “The Fixer Upper Face Packs” range, each for PKR 650.

1
If you ask me to rate the two cleansers, I’d rate Magical Mulberry as 1st and Crange Maker as 2nd.  Both suited my oily skin, but it was Mulberry who did a fine job; I felt my skin clearer and even with it the most.
I have pigmentation around my mouth area, and with these cleansers I visibly noticed them getting lighter and can see my skin quite even now. I literally felt as if every dirt and impurities has been flushed off of my face. Yay! So a big thumbs up to these crazy cleansers. (y)

Now come the face packs/masks. Well… . My sister grabbed the “Tangerine Affair” before I could get my hands on it so yeah I suggest you guys take a look at her blog to know her experience with it and also her take on the other products HERE.

As for me, I am head over heels over “From Cleo with Love”. I use it with fuller’s earth (Multani Mitti). What I do is mix this face pack with rose water and fuller’s earth, initially, it was an experiment, but now it is something I swear by. I thought it would leave my skin dry, but to my surprise it did not happen at all. It worked perfectly and my skin actually felt moist and revived.

What common among these products is the yummy-licious fragrance! You are absolutely going to love ‘em. The balance is just right. You’ll feel your face radiant , your air afresh and your mood all lightened up. 😀

All in all, the products are finely milled and in my view you are not going to get such a treat of all natural and herbal skin care products in an amount of PKR 650 and that too home-made under extreme care. You can manage the consistency as per your liking; you can use it in so many ways. The firefly girl and Mama firefly’s invention are indeed L A U D A B L E!

P.s: I advise you all to please do a patch test before you begin using them on your pretty faces as what works for me might not work for you.

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!
