It looks gorgeous on my tanned skin and even I tried it on my cousin with nc20 skin tone and it looked equally beautiful on her too. Its one of those shades which just lifts up your mood and makes you look more alive if you are wearing nothing but this lipstick.
Bourjois Rouge Edition 12 Hour Lipstick is a new long lasting 12 hour formula. The creamy texture contains shea butter and colour-fixing silk powders, leaving the lips feeling soft and velvety with a semi matte finish.
The most requested lipstick shade ever, Pamplemousse is making a comeback in the new Rouge Edition 12 Hour range. The shade, a pearly coral, first launched in 2000 and became an instant top seller. Since it's discontinuation in 2007 UK lipstick fans have been championing for its return. So desperate are consumers to get their hands on it, die-hard fans have been purchasing the original shade of Pamplemousse on eBay for up to £100!

I have the shade #29, which is described as an orange red. But from swatches below you can see it transforms more of a soft coral on me and orange is more dominating . I was never fond of corals ,it just made me look more tanned but this shade is pure love. If i am in hurry and i want a bright lipstick , i will grab it. The formula satin , its semi matte and if you are very dry lips, it may accentuate the dryness or fine lines.The formula is pigmented, creamy and applies like a dream.I havent noticed any particular scent and they last pretty well , i say better than your average lipsticks but i have yet to test the 12hrs claim.

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 .

STAGELINE Large Lipcolour Palette - Swatch, Review, Photos

STAGELINE Large Lipcolour Palette

You can never have too many lipsticks. But sometimes when you have relatives all over country and when there is a wedging or some get together,packing makeup can be tricky because you wont be the only one you'll be using this makeup,infact few of your female cousins expect you to do theirs too. I can't decide what to pack and usually end up over packing and not use half of that stuff anyways.Makeup palettes are a great way to save space and also have variety of shades to try. I love to collect blush palettes and i love using this Stageline Lipcolour Palette. It gives me so many options and freedom to mix and make my own shade.
STAGELINE Large Lipcolour Palette : Creamy lip colour has never been so easy to create and maintain. Incredibly long lasting finish with strong, even colour due to Stageline’s signature treated pigments. Contains Maxilip to boost collagen levels, Vitamin E to soothe and holds an SPF of 10 to protect.

The palette is so pretty to look at,I have to say , i love the packaging. Its very sleek and professional looking, So if you are a makeup artist, you won't be embarrassed to pull it out and start using it on your clients. The palette comes stacked with 24 delicious shades. The palette is overflowing with beautiful shades of pinks,red,browns. The palette contains shimmer and creme formula. Most of the shades are beautifully pigmented , where as some shades appear sheer (mostly neutral nude shades). Most of the shades are creamy and very easy to apply with a lip brush.The shades are true to color and they show up exactly as they look in the palette but again some lighter shades may look different depending upon the pigmentation of the lips .Overall the color payoff is good.I use a lip brush when i am using this palette. The lasting power is very impressive. They stay more than 3 hours on me,and i didn't notice any drying of lips. With so many shades in one palette,You can be creative and create new shades by mixing 2-3 shades like i do.There are whooping 24 shades, which were little hard to swatch on lips but these are some shades i have been wearing in past few weeks.

Ipsy August 2014


Monthly subscriptions are the rage these days everywhere, Chances are, you’ve heard of beauty subscription boxes by now. The concept is fairly new to Pakistanis since we don’t have any locally available option. The monthly subscription are affordable as they can cost you as low as low-cost at only $10/month but some are on expensive side with more high end variety of products .I always wanted to subscribe Ipsy by Michelle phan more than any other services, since ipsy offer more makeup products, I am not into skin/hair care sample.Finally i was able to get that through a wonderful page , Makeup & Accessories .I ordered mine through them.You can ask them to order you almost anything from USA at most affordable prices. They are one of PBBC reliable pages
How it works: Ipsy sends their subscribers four or five cosmetic, hair, and skincare products.  Each bag also includes exclusive coupon and discount codes for the products or companies featured in it, which is nice.  $10 a month for a rolling subscription, which can be canceled anytime, or $110 for a yearly commitment.

Their design usually reflects the “theme” of the products in them; this month’s was “Beauty Schooled”“Learn the rules, so that you can break them. This month, you’ll discover that you’ll never stop learning – especially, when it comes to the world of beauty. With everything from styling skills, application techniques, to channeling your inner confidence and uniqueness… With the help of ipsy and your August Glam Bag, you’re about to get ‘schooled’.
I was pretty excited to get this bag since i knew each bag was getting one of UD samples. It was either a mascara or a 24/7 pencil. Since  i already own few UD eye pencils , i was excited to find the mascara in my bag. Being a blush hoarder, coastal scents blush duo was second product to make me excited.

Stageline Silk Veil Pore Minimizer Review




Stageline Silk Veil Pore Minimizer 

Makeup primers are ideal if you are looking for something that minimizes the appearance of pores or to even skin tone,as well as blur wrinkles, primers do this whilst creating the perfect, velvety canvas for foundation application. For me primers are very important part of my makeup routine. Today i bring you the review of Stageline Silk Veil Pore Minimizer.
Stageline Silk Veil Pore Minimizer (Rs1495)- Refining matte finish skin treatment creates a 3D network that smooths and reduces the appearance of open pores. A light luxurious silky texture allows the skin to breathe. Contains hyaluronic acid (extra moisturizing) Vitamin E (antioxidant) Vitamin A (cellular renewal).Silicone content refills uneven levels of the skin, targeting the signs of ageing.Ideal for High Definition make-up for a flawless finish.Apply after moisturizing but before applying make-up.

Stageline Silk Veil Pore Minimizer Review


I have been using stageline products this past few weeks and honestly i have yet to be disappointed with anything they've send me. I utterly love the packaging of their products esp the blush or lip palettes. One of product which i thought was real adorable was this tiny squeezable tube of Silk Veil, which is pore minimizer. It is very simple and nothing screams luxurious about it but it is very travel friendly. The product itself is in clear gel form. It contains silicon, so like most gel consistency primers; it has a tendency to slide. I take a pea sized amount, and dot it along my t-zone,nose/cheeks area then rub it in with fingers. It comes in an easy squeezable tube which you can squeeze out as much or as little as you wish. You can use it on forehead, cheeks, nose, chin, before applying foundation. I let it set for at least 15 min before i start using foundation .The texture is silky and smooth (due to silicon) . It blends easily but need some time to absorb and dries to smooth semi matte finish helping to reduce and control the amount of oil on the face. Since it is silky,i do apply it to the under eye area, which makes under eye concealer application much more easier and makes it not get cakey. I have a dry skin, so i do use moisturizer beforehand. Once blended and set , the face feels so incredibly smooth and even, and it fills in pores and fine lines. It makes foundation go on much more smoother and effortlessly. It goes really well with my dry-combination skin but for oily skin .But end of the day , i felt a need of quick blot depending on the weather/temeprature.Currently it has replaced my mostly used primer benefit Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional (Review here)


Stageline Silk Veil 
Stageline Silk Veil Pore Minimizer

Pros:
  • Mattifies skin
  • Creates soft and silky smooth surface 
  • makes under eye concealer application much more easier 
  • Suits dry-combination and ageing skin types
  • Doesn't leave any residue behind
  • It can be used everyday
  • travel friendly tube
  • Ideal for High Definition make-up for a flawless finish
  • a little goes long way

Cons:
  • Doesn't really control oil for long
  • Price
  • contains silicon which might not suit all skin types esp sensitive.






Price: RS 1495
Availability: just4girls.pk , Daraz.pk , and available all across Pakistan at Stage Line counters. Find stores here .Check out Stageline professionals facebook for latest products and offers

OverallAs with most primers, a little goes a long way.Once blended and set , the face feels so  incredibly smooth and even, and it fills in pores and fine lines. It makes foundation go on much more smoother and effortlessly.It also help your makeup last much longer throughout the day.It goes really well with my dry-combination skin but for oily skin i dont think it will absorbs enough greasiness/ oil on the face and by the end of the day ,their face may look oily.It is perfect product for dry-combination skin types as well as whoever have pore issues.
