What should be in your makeup kit?

Hey lovely ladies!

This post is for those who are new to MAKEUP! But, it does not mean it's not for those who are old :D It is useful for you too. The girls who doesn't know what to buy and what to have in their makeup bag, this post is dedicated to YOU :) Sometimes they miss out something and sometimes they end up buying alot. I can tell that from my experience. When I was new, I didn't know what to buy and what is perfect for me and what should be in my makeup bag. I had many things which I didn't needed and I had somethings which I didn't had but I needed them. It's not a big issue that you don't know. It happens and that is why we are here to help you girls out. :)
Here are the 10 top things which one should have in their makeup bags.


1. Foundation.


It can be of any shape, shape means; liquid, mousse or stick. Whatever suits your skin the best. Always keep in mind that buy the shade of foundation which is a tone darker to your skin tone. Do not run for ligh…

REVIEW - Sigma E25 - Blending Brush

Hey pretty girls!

Look what I have for you today. Review of Sigma's E25 Blending Eyeshadow Brush. 

Sigma Makeup sent me their E25 Blending Brush one and a half week back. I always wanted to try Sigma Brushes. I had a craze to use them, but I couldn't use them. But, now I can use them. Thank you to Sigma Makeup for their amazing Affiliate Program. 


I wanted to use it first and then review it for you girls, as I wanted to come up with my honest opinion. I always trusted Sigma, even without trying them. Because I heard from many gurus and girls that, Sigma always came with quality brushes. You can see my last makeup tutorial on yellow eyes. I have used this brush for blending the Outer V section and to apply the color on the corners and brow bone :)


Description of the Brush:
Oval-shaped brush with gently chiseled sides. Blends and softens the look of powder or cream shadows. Ideal to apply eye shadow primer, base eye shadow colors, and blend harsh lines.


My Review after using it: I …

HAUL + Review - Naheed Supermarket.

Hey beautiful girls,

Another Haul in the month of February, it is because I went to Naheed Supermarket twice to get the winner's gift for my competition. First I went but the gift was out of stock and then I had a chance to shop for myself. And, I wanted to buy some of the things which were out of stock in my cupboard :D This time I went again to buy the gift and I had more than one and a half hour to shop at Naheed and that too alone. So, I had plenty of time to look and try different things :D This way I ended up shopping alot for myself again. I have decided I will not visit Naheed next month, no hauls for the month of March. :D More reviews next month about the things I bought last time as well as this time. Keep requesting what you want me to review first. This is a Haul + Review of some of the little things I used.

Let's get started with what I bought this time. The things I bought are...


These are some of the things I bought, this is not all. I did some grocery shopping to…

Review - POND'S White Beauty - Lightening Cream.

Hey lovely girls,

How are you doing today? I am good and I have so much to do. As promised, I had to do a review on Pond's cream and also I have to do a Haul post and also a review about Sigma brush. Lots and lots to do :D

Let's get started with this review and then I will start with my HAUL :D 


POND'S says:
  Deeply nourishes skin to a radiant pinkish-white glow.

Pond's - How to enjoy better whitening results ?
Use every morning and evening as part of your Pond's white beauty skin care regime.
Apply with fingertips, smoothing evenly onto clean skin over face and neck. Massage lightly until completely absorbed.

My REVIEW 
As said by Pond's that, we can see the difference in 14 days. To give my honest opinion, I used it for 15 days. I applied it everyday in the morning after washing my face. I kind of liked this cream, as it does not dries out my skin like some of the whitening creams do. Though, I didn't find much difference in 15 days. I was using it once a day. Bu…

I am adding the picture of the palette with the names on every color which I used for the particular area. If you don't have this palette, you can use colors similar to it or a little different from it. It's not necessary you have to have the same palette. 


As you can see, the base…

It's all about NAILS !

Hello beautiful girls!

It's my first ever blogpost about Nail color. I LOVE applying nail polish since childhood. I had so many of them, and if anyone wanted to gift me, they always gifted me a nail polish. But those were tiny ones with glitter in it. 

Now, I usually apply BOLD and BRIGHT colors. I don't like glitter nail polishes. It's hard to take them out, though they look really pretty. Sometimes it's good to have nude or light colored nails. I don't apply nail colors according to season, I apply according to my mood :D But, that's your choice. Anyways, today I have a cute color to show with a review of the brand and a tip. Let's get started..



This is one of my favorite colors since October. It is by Luscious and the color is Cotton Candy. Luscious has a wide range of beautiful bright colors to bold colors as well as lights and nudes. I love almost all of the colors they have. I have some of them which I really LOVE. But, as you know every product has pro…

Valentines Day - REDs

Hey beautiful readers,

Happy Valentines Day to all of you! How are you going to celebrate it? Any special plans? 

For me, I don't have anything to celebrate. Will be busy in my routine life. Set up my vanity area, paint my wall behind the vanity area and rest the same :)

Okay, so in the evening I was thinking what should be my next post about. As I haven't done a blogpost in a long time, since 7th. Which is quite alot. I was down with flu. I gathered all the energy today and thought of doing something interesting. 2 days back, I asked from you to share your red things with me on facebook. Today, I tweeted and asked you about which color things you want me to share with you, RED or PINK and I got the answer RED :) Though, I don't own many red things. I LOVE Pink, I love red too. But, most of the things I have are PINK. I will share them some other PINK day :) Valentines is all about RED, so this post is RED too :)

These are few things I own which are RED.

HAUL - Naheed SuperMarket.

Hello my beautiful readers!

How are you doing today? I hope all of you are fine and enjoying the spring season :) Winters are almost gone in Karachi, and Spring winds have started. I miss winter :( Do you?
Anyways! Let's talk about HAUL and SHOPPING :D
So, I went to Naheed Supermarket on Saturday 5th February. It was the first week of the month + a weekend + a holiday, and by this you can understand what I am actually trying to say. Yes! It was crowded. But, you don't feel that much crowd at Naheed, due to alot of space and 3 floors with different things. It makes these days very convenient for us.
I LOVE shopping at Naheed Supermarket. I end up buying alot of things which I really don't need. Oh! And by the way, if you shop from Naheed Supermarket, do you have their Loyalty Card? If not, do make it next time you visit. If you want to know what it is, you can check the website or you can ask me anytime :D

Let's get started with the HAUL :D This is what I got.

Review - Studio Cupcakes.

Hello beautiful readers!


I gave you a hint in my last post, that my next post will be something YUMMY! :D Today, the review is totally random and is a non-beauty review. It's all about CUPCAKES! :D Who doesn't love little cuppies? Ofcourse, everyone LOVES them. I am a big fan of baking, specially cuppy cakes. I am sure some of you love baking aswell and most of them love cupcakes. So, here I have for you the review of one of the cupcakes line.

I came across this girl who owns a Cupcake line, named Studio Cupcakes. Actually, 2 sisters own them.


How did they started?

One of them answered, " I always had a passion for baking, used to try random recipes in the kitchen, since I was in high-school; hiding from my mom because she used to hate her kitchen invaded by a crazy little girl, bent on messing up her kitchen [ because I never cleaned, after I was done:D ]. Then, I had to do a batch of cupcakes for a surprise party that was being thrown for me [ how ironic ] and I ended up…
