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:
Powerful colors, modern effects, matt contrast – CATRICE has it all ... Inspired by international catwalk trends, countless shades and sophisticated textures invite you to play with the looks of the season. From nude to dramatic – just be the woman you want to be.
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 - Watsons Repairing Treatment Wax

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. 

It says : Enjoy a salon treatment for your hair at home!

Glamourous Face 48+48 Eye shadow Palette [Review]

The wedding season is on, some of you might be looking for good products to buy for yourself for your own wedding or for yourself to get ready for someone else's wedding. It is really hard to find good quality eyeshadows with affordable price. All this year I kept looking for a good eye shadow palette, but was unable to find one. I ended up buying single eye shadows.

Finally, I came to know about this palette through a blogger [Sara Hassan] who did a review about it on her blog. Seriously, after reading the reviews I was so excited to buy it. Thanks to her for sharing. I wouldn't have bought it if I would have seen it before the review. 

So, without wasting the time, let me introduce you to my favourite palette :)
I am in love with this palette. It has all you need. I was looking for so many colours which I found in it. I am really excited to have this palette, and it is my first ever BIG palette. Colours like carbon black, warm browns, pinks, greens are the ones I love the mos…

L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Caramel Mania - Toffee Delice [Review]

I'm a person who loves experimenting things with my makeup and hair. When it comes to changing the color, I can try the bold colors to subtle ones. Lately, I've been obsessed with Ombre and full brown hair color. I prefer hair dying my hair at home and that's why I love and prefer shampoo dyes. If you are new, and you are changing hair color at home, it's the easiest way. All you have to do is mix all the contents in a bottle, shake well and start applying. Yes, easy as it sounds.
