Cute Designer Tops for Ladies Available Online in

Cute Designer Tops for Ladies Available Online in Pakistan

Pakistan has developed quite an impressive fashion scene. Not very long ago, designers were mostly concerned with traditional clothes, improving upon our cultural dresses and coming up with new ideas. However, with increased globalization, western fashion has penetrated into Pakistan as well. Fashion campaigns such as Bridal Couture Week have become the norm, and many people take inspiration from the models who walk the runways at these shows. There are hundreds of fashions designers currently working in Pakistan.

When it comes to women’s fashion, a top is a year-round piece that goes well with everything. Whether it is an eastern-inspired kurti with traditional motifs or a fancy lace top to be worn with jeans, Pakistani designers have everything covered. If you want to go for a modern piece of clothing, opt for lace as the fabric of choice. Lace tops look especially classy in light colors such as beige, lilac, powder pink, and ivory. They can be paired with jeans for a casual look, while a gold-accented belt and high heels can transform the very same outfit into one fit for the evening.
Designers seem to be especially smitten with vintage looks this year. Ruffled collars and sleeves are quite a popular style for tops as they add a whole lot of character to the dress. This look appeals to women especially in the winters as a ruffled collar can provide the perfect base to wear a simple chic coat on. Other vintage looks such as puffy sleeves and embroidered necklines have also become quite popular.

Another style that is in vogue these days is peplum. Suitable for skinny, tall girls, it complements your figure and imparts a sleek, polished look to your outfit. Although it made its return around a year or so ago, it has remained on the catwalks and continues to be one of the most popular designs for tops. Peplum tops are usually made in a stiff cloth so as to make the border of the top more prominent. They can be worn with jeans or trousers.
In order to have some fun with the tops that you choose, make sure you go for funky colors that bring out your personality. Neons are the most preferred set of colors with neon pink and green items selling like hot cakes. Not too long ago, pants and jeans in vibrant colors were in fashion, however, this trend has moved onto tops this season.

To make your life even easier, now you can shop for tops online. Stores that sell clothing online such as have a huge variety of designer tops for you to choose from. You will never miss out on seasonal sales and discounts if you subscribe to newsletters and updates; in fact you will receive timely alerts for new items. These facilities are not available when you are physically shopping for clothes. Thus it is no wonder that people especially women have resorted to shopping for clothing online.

Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Normal/Dry Skin – Review

Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Normal/Dry Skin
I still remember when i was in my teens, i was pretty new to makeup and everything related to beauty. I have always had a hard time choosing foundation , It was hard to choose the right shade and something with the right  amount of coverage and of course with the affordable price. Then i was introduced to Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Normal/Dry Skin

revlon colorstay foundation review- Want makeup that is flawless and weightless for 16 perfect hours? Revlon has the solution - ColorStay™ Makeup with SoftFlex™.Specially formulated for normal or dry skin, this oil-free, moisture-balanced formula gives you flawless looking skin. Makeup looks fresh and feels great for up to 16 hours thanks to the lightweight, comfortable feel from the SoftFlex ColorStay™ Formula. Medium to full coverage, with SPF 15 protection*.

Revlon ColorStay Foundation Normal Dry skin after application

I remember standing at Alfatah for hours, looking confused. Then came the day , when i was introduced to the magical world of Revlon Color stay foundation.When I first purchased this foundation back in I dunno 2006?? I got it in Normal / dry skin formula and Shade MEDIUM BEIGE. But now I am more tanned (NC35) and shade which suits me more is natural tan in Revlon ColorStay Foundation. Now let me share one thing I noticed when I was picking up this foundation at walmart. The shades are different in each formula e.g : the golden beige was tad lighter in Revlon ColorStay Foundation Combination/Oily compared to Revlon ColorStay Foundation normal/dry. So if you are buying this foundation online , do your homework and google as many swatches as you can to get your perfect match. My mom is NC30 and she wear Revlon ColorStay Foundation Combination Oily skin in golden beige.

  • I wish it came come with a pump

I hardly wear makeup in summers, but when i am going out in humid , hot weather i take a small amount of Revlon Colorstay,  and mix it with my favorite moisturizer and apply with my Coastal scents Stipple brush / ELF powder brush. It gives me such natural glow . Love it

Stageline Makeup Fixer Spray-Review

Stageline Makeup Fixer Spray Review

Stageline Makeup Fixer Spray

If you are like me and always wished there was one magic product which will not only help your makeup melting in the hot summer days but also convenient to carry and use,then i introduce you to this magic product Stageline Makeup Fixer Spray, Honestly i had no idea what i was missing until i started using it . I have tried urbndecay all nighter long lasting makeup setting spray but for the price and ease of availability,this is pretty hard to beat.  

Stageline Makeup Fixer SpraFixes make up to avoid stains on clothes and any deterioration of the make up from smudging due to sweat etc. Allows the make up to remain unchanged all day long.Great alternative to setting powder
Makeup setting sprays come in different types for different skin types and also have different purposes. A good setting spray will not only increase the longevity of your makeup but also it help to prevent your makeup from fading, creasing, or even look cakey. There are different types of setting sprays like some give you a dewy finish, some will keep a matte finish and help to control oil.

This is amazzziing and now my HG. I don't know how i survived without this for so long . I have a combination skin, Oily T zone and dry face. So when i am done appying my makeup, i spray it at the recommended distance of 40-50cm from face. It feels sticky at first, let it dry completely and avoid re-applying . Once its dries, My makeup stayes put for more than 8 hours and even the i noticed my blush lasts much longer than usual.  Since i have dry face , if i apply bit too much powder , I will spray once with stageline makeup fixer and it takes away the powdery look. Once sets completely ,it doesn't feel sticky or uncomfortable on the skin. 

Stageline Makeup Fixer Spray

Sweet Touch Lash Boost Mascara - Review & swatches

This review has been long due, the day I got it , I was leaving for Lahore, I stayed there for 10 days and this was my go to mascara, then came eid and I chose to use it and here I am today finally reviewing the sweet touch lash boost mascara.

The mascara that makes an average lash super long and ultra-dark, Gives intense yet light weight coverage to elevate the eye l ash dramatic new heights 
The mascara has the cutest packaging; it comes in a cute chubby black tube with hot pink lettering, the wand is perfect for my barely there lashes and covers each and every lash. This mascara adds great length but a lot of volume which I prefer in my perfect kind of mascaras.  The formula is great, it’s not very wet or dry and easy to apply. But the downside is if you aren’t careful, while applying but tends to clump and It made my lashes clumpy and spidery when I tried to layer it. I haven’t noticed any smudging or flaking once it’s dry and removal of this mascara is easy with a regular makeup remover or soap and water. 
Price-wise it is indeed a bargain if you are blessed with thick lashes. This mascara does not provide significant thickening but it does a great job at separating and lengthening the lashes. The formula is great for everyday wear and I haven’t noticed any irritation or redness. My preferred way of using it on top of another mascara, and it just gives my lashes that extra length to make them stand out the way I want .

  • Pros

Everyday mascara
Cute chubby packaging
Affordable price tag
Light weight coverage is perfect for everyday wear
Easily available
Looks very natural if you have naturally thick eyelashes

  • Cons

Tends to clump,
Doesn’t give much of volume to the lashes

Overall It is easy a great everyday mascara if you want your lashes to look natural and its is easy to work with and lengthens the lashes with some curl with hardly any volume . I am not totally wowed by it but I when i am in hurry and want a this a  no fuss everyday mascara this is the one i would pick.
Price & availability : Sweet Touch Lash Boost Mascara costs PKR 499/-  Sweet touch products are easily available at all makeup city outlets and leading stores nationwide. Check out sweet touch facebook for latest offer .
