Korres Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturiser SPF 30 Review

Lightweight foundation cream for a radiant, tanned look and broad-spectrum sun protection. Oil free and with a fresh and smooth texture, it offers a uniform colour and medium coverage, while allowing the skin to breathe. Watermelon extract, rich in naturally occurring vitamins, carbohydrates and aminoacids, prevents photo-ageing and decreases erythema. At the same time, the extract of Vanilla and Curcuma longa provide the essential antioxidant protection

What it is? 
An oil-free tinted moisturizer that provides uniform color, sheer-to-medium coverage, and powerful sun protection.
What does it do? 
Korres Watermelon Tinted Moisturiser SPF 30 is a moisturizer that contains antioxidant-rich watermelon extract that counteracts free-radical damage as well as SPF 30 UVA/UVB broad-spectrum protection. The breathable, water-resistant formula has a sweat-proof tint that remains fresh even through activity, heat, and humidity.


Available in Three shades 
1 Light Sand
2 Medium Honey
3 Dark Tan
I have it in shade dark tan. 

To get the maximum protection apply evenly to the face and neck at least 30 minutes before exposure to the sun and as needed. 

Available at:,

You girls have NO idea , how much i was lusting over Korres Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturiser. I wanted a tinyed moisturizer since summer started here like 5 months ago :P 
I was so excited it when i saw it in mail almost 2 weeks ago.I wore it couple of time so i think i am ready to share my view :)
Korres Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturiser has a thin consistency , you just need a little bit, otherwise you will end up wasting it, which i am sure no one wants to do.It does dry quickly so i would advise you to work quicky  in sections rather than spots on your face.It feels little sticky for a while after application but after sometime sticky feeling vanishes.The texture of Korres Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturizer is very light , and it spreads easily and evenly ,leaving a dewy finish.The Coverage is of course sheer but i wont call it too sheer. It did cover my small imperfections. I was impressed with the coverage as what i expect from a tinted moisturiser is to even out my skin tone and Korres Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturiser did even out my skin tone.
I am NC30-35, and i always thought that 2nd shade which is medium honey would suit me but when i was sent to try Dark tan , i was surprised it suited me perfectly. Maybe i have tanned a bit in summer and didn't even notice. It has the benefit of SPF 3O , which is always a plus point in summers.To be honest i am really lazy , i cant be bothered to use sunscreens so this products covers everything.
I travel a lot , twice in 2 months so this product will be traveling with me everywhere.

I am wearing 

  • Korres Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturiser SPF 30 In Dark Tan
  • Illamasqua Cream Blush in Promise 
  • Illamasqua 4-Colour Liquid Metal Palette( Copper on lid and metallic grey on inner corner on eyes)
  •  MAC Lustre lipstick in Lovelorn
  • Lakme kajal pencil on lower waterline and smudged it

Have you tried Korres Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturiser SPF 30??

L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Face Contours and Neck Cream

What it is: 

With age, there are less of the skin’s supporting fibres and as they progressively weaken, the skin starts to sag and facial features lose definition. This loss of skin firmness is most visible on the neck and around the contours of the face.
Help re-support the skin contours of your face and neck with Revitalift Face, Contours & Neck.
Unless you want a permanent lift, there's always Revitalift.
What does it do:

Wrinkles appear reduced and skin feels firmer.
Skin feels firmer: 71% agree*
Skin feels re-supported: 68%agree
Packaging :Its a thick cream in a sleekand sturdy  red jar with a lid

Price:Priced at PKR 1200, L’Oréal Paris New Revitalift Face, Contours and Neck is now available at all L’Oreal Paris counters across the country.

How to use

The instructions are very simple.Use daily morning and/or evening on face, contours and neck.Avoid contact with the eyes.
Apply the cream by slowing massaging in upward strokes from your neck towards your facial contours. To help tone the skin, gently pinch around where product has been applied.
Repeat these movements up to 3 times.

Okay now Glossicious Review:
L'Oreal Revitalift Face Contours and Neck is World's number 1 anti wrinkle cream which is enriched with Vitafibrine, Pro-Retinol A and double the concentration of Elastin than the Day cream and has been specifically formulated to leave skin feeling firmer and more defined.
I have been using L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Face Contours and Neck Cream for a month now. I used it solely and daily on my face and neck.I am in late 20s , but i don't have any visible wrinkles ,but i do notice few dark spots on the left cheek,so i took this cream seriously and applied religiously every day After my face has been cleansed thoroughly,.The result were surprising and so visible that I got my mom to notice the difference and she complemented that my face looks bit different , she is not a beauty blogger , otherwise she would put it this way"very soft ,smooth and even looked "plumped" up".I asked my mom to use it as well , so we will have views from two ladies . from different age category.and you know what after using it after only 4 weeks , the skin of my mom's neck does feel a little firmer. No Kidding ! 
she can even pinch it ,and show it to you ?  
But i said no !thank you maa.we are good.
What i most liked about this cream is that it  is not greasy, to be honest in this hot and humid summer , last thing i want is a greasy face.The texture of Revitalift is creamy and smooth, and spread easily to my face and neck. I don't need a lot to cover my Face Contours and Neck.The smell is pleasing and strong but nothing over powering and chemical-ish.
Over all excellent cream if you are lazy bum like me and want to take care of your neck and face at the same time .Give it a go.

Now as the review is almost done , i want to share this amazing video. 
The video supports Revitalift, the World’s Number 1 anti-wrinkle cream, as the key ingredient of a healthy lifestyle and anti-ageing program, designed to help delay skin aging.
 Indeed this video is a manifestation of L'Oréal Paris' commitment to innovation in beauty. This concept video is based on the premise that 'Your lifestyle is what you make it' with Nabila as the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift muse.
The first part of the video centers on the notion of time, the environment, levels of stress and diet: These are illustrated to show the adverse effects to the health of the skin. On the solution side, it reveals how exercise, water intake, a healthy diet and a definitive anti-ageing programme through New Revitalift Face, Contours and Neck can control ageing, leaving the skin firmer and more youthful for longer.

 I absolutely love the concept and how they made it.Its genius.

Have you or anyone you know tried this on their face?
I’m still looking forward for better results if this has still something further to go.

Bourjois Eau de Gloss Review , Swatch & Photos

I bought these babies in January from fragrance direct  for £0.99 , bargain , no?
I got shade Capuccino Ice( its a non sticky shimmering gloss) and Rose Vitamine (17)    ( is a non sticky moisturizing formula gloss).Shade swatches are very deceptive so do google before buying them.
Reason i love them is that they are non sticky and have great shine.Best thing is that they are really moisturizing too. Staying power is not so great but not so bad.I had to re apply frequently.
and how cute is the packaging ? very unqiue and easy to find from my huge pile of lipglosses.
*sorry i dont know why second pic of both swatches is blurry,it isnt like this in real,hmm*

Okay i am HUGE bourjous commercials fan.
Their commercials are so cute.
Here is the Cute advert of Bourjois Eau de Gloss


If you are in UK or some where you can get hold of these ,do buy them.They are inexpensive, fun and highly recommended.

Have you tried these before?

Shiro Cosmetics -Review & Swatches

Shiro Cosmetics is independently owned and operated by a wonderful lady, Caitlin. I read about Shiro Cosmetics on Sirvinya's and lovely Heather's blog. I was super impressed with the swatches and i knew i have to have them.
Caitlin was super sweet and asked me to choose girls for the review, but instead i asked to surprise me, she had sent me some of her favorites.My package arrived within 10 days.
 Each colour came in a sample baggie with a label with its own ingredients listed.I thought it was quite unique,impressive and helpful ,as it was mentioned on the label if color is lip safe or not.The samples come in little baggies. Only thing i didn't like was , when i tried to open the sample baggie, label sticker stretched the plastic and ripped small holes in it. It didn't become messy as i immediately transferred them in empty jars i had ,as i didn't want to waste such brilliant shades.
When i swatched the eyeshadows i was instantly struck by the glitz and intensity. The swatches below are done with extremely light handed. Imagine how beautiful they will look over a primer(* see my eyemakeup below*)
They are so pigmented.Even after end of day , my eye makeup look superb, And staying power is so awsum, i wore contact lenses that day, after few hours ,we had sand storm, and i got some in my eyes and i shed some tears , but eyeshadow didn't fade, they stayed fresh.These eyeshadow are blend able, i had no problem blending keeping in mind , how bad i am at it.
All of Shiro Cosmetics eyeshadows are vegan
 Shades description :
  • Meowth: Shimmering cream with coppery shimmer.
    The third member of the Team Rocket trio, Meowth is apparently the only Pokemon (short of Mewtwo) capable of human speech. Which seems a little arbitrary, but hey, whatever.
  •  Gengar:Dark purple-black with red eye-safe glitter. ( It reminds me of MAC beauty marked)
    Gengar gave Pokemon nerds a reason to find friends so they could trade their Haunters. I didn't have any friends, so I had to buy an extra GameBoy and the other version of Pokemon. It was so worth it.
  • Squirtle:Bright, clear, shimmery blue. Apply it wet to get a gorgeous metallic effect!
  • Lance the Dragon Trainer: Deep, rich, shimmering indigo with golden sparks of eye-safe glitter.Don't you wish your name was Lance the Dragon Trainer? Seriously. I would spend my life wearing a dramatic cape and just generally being awesome, if my name was Lance the Dragon Trainer.
  • Acid:Vivid, opaque, shimmery yellow-green with golden undertones and just a touch of darker green eye-safe glitter.
  • ButterFree:Pale, shimmery lavender.If you chose Charmander as your starter, a Butterfree with Confusion could make all the difference in your very first gym battle against Brock. That was probably the nerdiest sentence I've typed so far today.
  • Team Rocket: Opaque, shimmery red-toned purple - sort of a cross between the Team Rocket uniforms and Jessie's hair.Everyone's favorite trio of incompetent, dorky villians. These guys had the nerdiest intro in the entire world. TEAM ROCKET, BLAST OFF AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT!
  •  S.S.Anne :Lovely, shimmery, subtle yet rich champagne with a peachy-copper tinge - appropriate for all ages and occasions, universally flattering, and pretty much just gorgeous.
  • Brock The Rock: Dark, rich chocolate brown with slight red tones and flashes of silver.

*Applied dry*
(L-R) Meowth,ButterFree,Team Rocket,Brock The Rock, S.S.Anne, and Acid
