Are you going BOLD this season? [Review + Swatches]

This season is all about BOLD and Beautiful! I always loved bold lips, but was scared to wear it, as it is really hard to carry the color and look good in it at the same time. Have you ever tried going bold? See my first BOLD color.

Medora Matte Lipstick - Beloved
Medora of London (PVT) Ltd, was established in 1961. It has a network of more than 200 distributors, all over Pakistan.

My experience:
I was looking for a good CORAL shade, this summer and I was looking for a light coral lipstick. But then, my love went a little darker. Yes! More towards reds and dark oranges. I was confused, whether it will look good on me. So, I thought not to spend too much money on an expensive lip product, which I can end up throwing. I searched for different brands and colors and thought of trying Medora, as I found the color I was looking for, that too for affordable price.

The shade I bought is, BELOVED - 559. "Beloved" is a a bold orange shade, somewhat similar to Morange by MAC. Morange is a brighter shade, whereas Beloved is a deeper and a matte shade of orange. This is my first ever matte lipstick, and I must say I am impressed with the quality, texture and pigmentation of this lipstick. It glides effortlessly, without leaving streak marks. One swipe, and you are good to go. I thought it might dry out my lips, but it doesn't. For girls with dry lips, I would suggest to use a lip balm incase.

The texture of the lipstick is soft, creamy and stays put for good 5 to 6 hours. As it is matte, it stays longer than the glossy or satin finishes. You can also dab a little and smudge it with your finger for natural stained lips. It has that lipstick scent which might be a turn off for some, but the scent is not bad or over-powering.

The packaging is not flimsy considering the price. It's sturdy, but nothing attractive. On the bottom you will notice the shade sticker, which makes it easier to pick while searching for a certain shade.

The conclusion is, I LOVED the texture and how it applies, would definitely pick some more colors. Medora lipsticks costs PKR 80 and are available nationwide.

Do you LOVE bold colors? Also share some good bold colors with brands, if you own some. I will love to try them too!

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:

[Review] Krylon TV Paint Stick - Orange

Makeup not only enhances your features, but also hides your flaws too!
Hiding my dark circles and finding the RIGHT concealer for the under eye circles has always been a BIG task for me. I have tried quite a few concealers, from different brands; none of them matched or could hide my dark circles properly. Until I came across orange corrector by Krylon.
