2011 Favorite Beauty Picks!

Countdown to 2012 - 3 days!
2011 was a wonderful year and it seems like it just started.
In 2011, I came across many beauty brands. Experienced many different products, from different brands. It was a great experience to try out different brands which I never tried or heard about them. Blogging made me discover many brands and websites. I always thought it was hard to get hands on international brands, as they were not available in Pakistan. But, then I came to know about many websites through which I shopped, many affordable and amazing products, like NYX Cosmetics and Sleek Makeup; my all time favorite brands.
If you want to try NYX Cosmetics, you can shop from HERE, it has quite affordable shipping rates.
Following are my favorite picks, that I either bought, was gifted or was sent for review; that I used a lot and LOVED.
My Favorite Lipbalms that I discovered/used/loved in 2011.
1. Pink Magic Lip Balm.
2. Sleek Tinted Lip Conditioner - Electro Peach.
3. EOS Lip Balm - Summer Fruit.

1. Elf Contouring Blush/Bronzing Duo. [Review]
2. Sleek Makeup Blush - Rose Gold.
2. Sleek Makeup Blush - Aruba.
I was looking for good kajal/kohl and eye liner. I was looking for something which does not smudge on my oily lids. Since I got to know about Maybelline Eye Studio Drama Gel liner, I was looking for it and it was always "out of stock". But, finally I found and it has to be in my favorite list.
1. Oriflame Kohl/Kajal.
2. Maybelline Eye Studio Drama Gel Liner.
Last but not the least, my favorite eye shadows/eye shadow palette. I heard a lot about Sleek Makeup eye shadow palettes, and wanted to try them. I wished for one, and now I have 3 of them :D
1. Oh So Special Palette.
2. Storm Palette.
3. Au Naturel Palette.

These are some of my FAVORITE beauty products of 2011, that I discovered and then bought or was sent. But, I enjoyed using them.

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.
