CATRICE Cosmetics - Mono Eyeshadow. [Review+Swatch]

As much as I love palettes, I also prefer single eye shadows; the quality of a mono eye shadow is much better than those in the palettes - that's what I believe and have experienced it too (most of them).

CATRICE Cosmetics Absolute Mono Eye Shadows:

We are heading into the new season with eight new colors. Matt, satin, pearl shimmering – whatever we desire. Absolute color, absolute durability, absolute coverage. Now available in a total of 27 colors.

My Experience:
The moment I swatched the black eye shadow from the collection, I was impressed to see the pigmentation of the eye shadow.Not only the eyeshadows, but other products that I swatched were amazing too. I am definitely going to get my hands on some more products from this brand; especially their cream eye shadows.

190 'Petrol Keeps Me Running' - is a beautiful shimmery dark teal color, with a hint of aqua (aqua and teal are very similar colors, with different undertones). It is a matte color, with tiny specks of shimmer in it, and makes your eyes sparkle when it is applied. It is a perfect shade to create a look for parties at night. A single swipe on the product, catches a lot of product, enough to apply to the entire eyelid. It is highly pigmented, has creamy/soft texture, is easy to blend, does not crease and stays put 4 to 5 hours.

420 'Talk Like An Egyptian' - is a gorgeous gold shimmery/ metallic/ makhmalli shade. It is a shimmery shade, as you can see from the swatch and has a velvety texture. It is easier to blend matte shadows, as compared to metallic shimmery shadows, but it was easy to blend this shade out. You can use a wet brush to apply the shade, or use your fingertips. It can be used as a highlighter for brow bone or inner corner and on the lids.

These mono eye shadows come with a price tag of PKR 350. Contains 2.0 g of the product (it is an introductory price). I bought mine from Naheed Supermarket. You can get it in any supermarkets. It is also available at Scentsation. You can buy these online on

Definitely recommend all of you to check these eye shadows and other products by Catrice Cosmetics. I didn't find anything bad about this eye shadow yet. The black color was out of stock, but I am going to get it as soon as it is in stock, as it is really hard to find blackest black eye shadows. The collection has both matte, matte with shimmer and metallic shimmery shades. They also have quads.

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.
