NOTD - Purple Rain

Hey beautiful girls,

How are you doing today? Today, I am sharing one of my favorite color from the Luscious collection. 


It is PURPLE RAIN from Luscious Cosmetics. It is a very pretty Lilac color, as you can see.
When I first bought this color, it had pink sheen in it. I used this after long time. May be 2 months. This time when I used, the pink sheen almost disappeared and it looked more like greyish lilac. That pink shade gave this color a little bit purple effect. But now it doesn't. Still it looks pretty and the best part, the applicator is good. It doesn't crease while applying the color. 

If you own this color and your nail color changed the color too after some months, do share it with me. Or it just happened with me :) Still, I love this color :)


I hope you liked the post. LOVE you all! 


xoxo

Contouring and Highlighting

Contouring and Highlighting is about re-shaping your face and enhancing your features. It is very easy, you only need to keep some steps in mind. All you need to know is your face shape. Once you know that, you can contour and highlight your face to balance the shape. Everyone has different face cuts and needs to understand it and to know what they need to hide and what to enhance. 
Contouring and highlighting, helps to enhance your cheek bones, slim out your nose, hide your double chin and slim your face. Contouring is shading and highlighting your face to create a shape.

Where to Contour?
There are four areas that need to be contoured to make your face look slim. Those four areas are:
1. Cheekbones.
2. Nose.

Review - Christine's Face Contouring.

Hello pretty girls!


Today, finally I am going to review about Christine Face Contouring powder. You girls have been requesting it for so long, but I wanted to try it and go out for hours, so that I can actually talk about it.
Let's get started!
This is the packaging of the contouring powder. It is available at Naheed Supermarket for Rs.250/
It will be easily available at any cosmetic's store, because it it not a high-end brand. 
This is how it looks like, it comes in different shades. At the back of the box, the sticker is of no.2, and at the back of the casing as you can see, it's no.1 :) Check the shade you want. I picked another one which had too dark brown shades. This one was the lightest. You can use this as a bronzer as well. I hardly use bronze because I look dark. But, for some reason, I am obsessed with bronzers these days and I want to try them from different brands. This is the first one I have and I kind of like it, as it is not too dark for me.

About the product:
It…

Guest post by SIDRA KHALIL - Nose Pore Strips!

Hello every one!

I am Sidra Khalil. I am so glad and thankful to Rabiyah for giving this wonderful offer to write a guest post for her blog. Thank you so much Rabiyah, because it always make me feel like dance when somebody ask me to write something about my favorite stuff  :)
It took me a little time to decide about the product, so I thought of writing a review for a product which I recently found and absolutely satisfied with the result. This product isPretty Smooth Nose Pore Strips. Who doesn’t like to have her face completely clean and free of blackheads and unclog pores? These strips are the best way to get rid of them. They are the worst blackheads enemy.




What are pore strips and how do they work?

Blackhead strips is a product made especially for blackheads (pore clogs) on nose, forehead, chin, and cheeks removal. There’s a glue coating element which binds all dirt, oils and sebum when pore strips are applied on the skin. As soon as the blackhead strips dries out it is being peeled…

Review - Luscious Nail Laquer in VALENTINE

Hey pretty ladies!

Today I am reviewing about one of my favorites of February as well as March :) Yes, my favorite nail color - Valentine.


If you are a dark bold color lover, you will definately love this color. Though it is not actual red. It is orange red. When ordering it online, I thought it will be blood red, which I wanted. But, when I received it, I was kind of disappointed. I didn't liked the orangy color. I thought it will look too bright. But when I applied it, it looked so gorgeous. It is a red orange color. It looks RED in the pictures. I thought the name valentine will be blood red. But anyways, I love this color. It is bright red orange and it look super cool.

Pros : 
* The formula is amazing.
* Can be ordered online.
* Bright color.
* Dries fast. 
* Does not get scratched.
* This particular nail color has good applicator. ;)

Cons:
* Bit too pricey. (costs Rs.225)


I think for this color and bottle, price is the only con. Apart from that, this color has good applicator. I …

February Favorites

Hey ladies!

I know I am pretty late in posting my February Favorites. This post will not be too long. Because it will be about my favorites only, I hope  you enjoy it :)


So, these are my favorites or the things I used alot in the month of February.
I am in LOVE with the Boots Body scrub. I know it looks like I haven't used that much, but I have. Tiny amount of this scrub is enough and makes you feel so good. It was best for winters, but I guess I will use it in summers too because of it's refreshing smell. Next, I am obsessed with my nail color Valentine by Luscious. Next post will be about this color. It is so gorgeous. I love dark pinks and reds on my nails.
And, as you know Etude's blush in No 20 is my all time favorite :) And, since I have bought the contour blush palette by Christine. I am in love with it too. It is one of the products now without which I don't go out :)

 List of the things in this picture:
1. Jergens Shea Butter Body cream.
2. Ponds White Beauty cream.

Hello pretty girls!

Today, I am going to review the most  requested product after my 2nd Haul post :) Yes, it is Watsons Repairing Treatment Wax.


I went to Naheed Supermarket and found this little jar. I had alot of time that day to go through something for my haircare. I picked up a jar from Boots, which was more like a conditioner to me. But, when I saw this, I picked up this and read about it. I thought of giving it a try. This one is for Dry or Permed Hair. And it is in flavor HONEY.

Review - Femina Nail Polishes

Hey pretty ladies!

How are you doing today? How was the weekend? I hope you all had something exciting to do :) 

Today, I am going to share my views on the Femina Nail Polishes, I recently bought. I bought 3 of them. Maroon, Tiffany / Mint green and Light pink. I applied 2 of them, maroon and tiffany / mint green. I was actually requested to do a review on them. Let's get started with the pictures and review :D






I was really excited to use the maroon color, because I was looking for this color everywhere for long, but couldn't find one. I LOVE bold and dark colors. It's very rare that I fall for light colors. Even today I am wearing Valentines by luscious :D It's pretty bold color. Anyways, I kind of loved the maroon color but I was not that happy with the mint green color. I was looking for this color too and I thought it would be a darker color, like it shows in the bottle. But it was not.

Maroon:
It is very pretty color, as you can see. The color is same as you can see in…

The pictures are posted in a step by step method. 

I have already applied my foundation, concealer, compact powder and contoured my cheeks with Christine's Contouring Powder . Contoured the cheek bones, nose, temples and jaw line with the darkest color from the palette, then used the lighter color on the apple of my cheeks and for little bit of peachy pink look, I have applied very little amount of Etude's No 20 blush in peach pink color.

Eye makeup steps are showed in the pictures. I will list the things below that I have used in this look. So, let's get started with the look first.


Use any black gel eye liner and apply with a flat brush, roughly on your eye lids and on the lower lash line.
