ELF Cosmetics | First Impression

Before I start sharing my first impression on the four products I received from ELF Cosmetics, there is a good news to share. If you follow me on Instagram & Snapchat, you'd know by now. If not, the news is ELF Cosmetics is now launched in Pakistan and is available online HERE. You can now easily get your favorite things from ELF from their website without waiting for days.

ELF Cosmetics 
I was sent four products from their line:
1. ELF Brightening Eye Color "Butternut"
2. ELF Shimmer "Gold"
3. ELF Lipstick "Posh"
4. ELF Matte Lip Color "Dash of Pink"

Starting with the packaging, even though the brand is affordable & cheaper on the pocket, they didn't compromise on the packaging. Not very fancy, but it's sturdy. The studio line is classy & with a better quality as compared to the normal line, in my opinion. I am an avid ELF Makeup Set & Mist fan. Nothing beats that when you have to set the makeup in the crazy heat, or if you want your face to look less caked up/chalky.

Moving on to the products I received, they are definitely first impressions because I've never tried any before.

ELF Brightening Eye Color "BUTTERNUT" - PKR 450
It's a beautiful earthy toned quads, with wearable shades that can be used in the day & night time. Though the shade gold is less pigmented compared to other shades & shows less as you can see even after multiple swatching. However, brown is the one that is pigmented of all.

ELF Shimmer "GOLD" 
It's a pretty gold toned highlighter that is not too shiny gold nor too dull. A perfect gold that will brighten the high points of the face, unlike some gold shades that can make medium toned skin look tan. I personally loved the shade when I first swatched, blended & used on my skin. It's definitely for those who love subtle highlights.

ELF Essential Lipstick "POSH" - PKR 399
The price itself is eye catching; isn't it? Posh is a berry toned lip color, which looks opaque in the picture of the swatch, but on the lips it's more like a tint. Maybe with time & usage, it might look as opaque as the swatch. If not, it's a good option for those who love a bit of a color on their lips instead of going too bold & bright.

ELF Matte Lipstick "DASH OF PINK" - PKR 699
Even though it's a matte lipstick, it goes on effortlessly and smoothly on the lips. The texture of the lipstick is creamy, but looks matte on the lips and give opaque coverage. Stays put for 3/4 hours & doesn't look chapped. The shade is a wearable everyday medium toned baby pink.

Overall, I'm quite please with the lipsticks & the formula. Looking forward to try a few more from the collection. Suggest me?

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.

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:

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.
