If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to our RSS feed , follow me on Twitter and Face book Thanks for visiting !

y'all know how much i wanted Nyx cream blushes and Stippling brushes. 
I was unlucky with my NYX rouge cream blush order
i took a plunge and ordered some NYX round lipsticks + 1 palette last month from rockthecatwalk, which was dispatched on June 15, i haven't received it yet . I think i should stop ordering NYX, Its unlikely that i will get their packages EVER !

But i am always lucky with Coastal Scents orders, I got the package in 9 days, yes ! you read me, it arrived in 9 days to Pakistan, all the way from USA. how awsummm!

What did i get ?

   I was scared to order palette as i read numerous reviews where girls ordered palettes from ebay , websites , hongkong etc etc and some of their eyeshadows were shattered , I had same problem but luckily only one eyeshadow was half broken.

26 Shadow Blush Combo Palette

Superb colors in a mix of shimmer, pearl and matte! This 26 pc combo set contains colors in nearly nude, to browns, taupes, peaches, pinks, rose and rich deep plums. We do not offer another color palette that can compare to this one in shades.
The first 3 blush shades from the left are matte, the 4th has shimmer and the last deep plum has a slight shimmer effect. I have actually used a few of the shadows as a blush with great results.
The color payoff is incredible and they blend  well creating very alluring looks from deep and sexy to light and ready for office day wear.

The Eyeshadow's pans measure 1" in diameter or 2.5 cm, There are 21 of them
The Blush pans measure 1 3/8" in diameter or 3.5cm, there are 5 of them.
This is only available in a Matte Black Case, case measures 9" x 6"

Price: $19.95



Flat Mineral Bronzer Buffer Large Price: $4.69

Black Stipler Brush Price: $7.95

New - L’Oréal Paris New Hydrafresh Aqua Cream and Facewash

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to our RSS feed , follow me on Twitter and Face book Thanks for visiting !

L’Oréal Paris, the world’s largest beauty brand, extends its technical expertise within their acclaimed Skin Care portfolio by introducing the New Hydrafresh Aqua Cream and Facewash.
Indeed, this launch heralds another innovation within their revolutionary Skin Care research and development.

Water is essential for not only providing hydration to our internal organs, but also for maintaining skin hydration. It is important to keep skin moisturized because the sun’s UV rays and pollution tend to damage the collagen structure that supports the skin, making it duller and more prone to losing its youthfulness if not properly moisturized. That is why it is important to protect the skin barrier.
For the first time L’Oréal Skincare Laboratories have created a formula with pure SPA water ,from the French Vosges Mountains, rich in essential minerals which helps to stimulate cells’ vitality and strengthen the skin barrier for healthy hydration.   
Introduced in Pakistan and simultaneously being launched in other countries, the New Hydrafresh Aqua Cream and Facewash is enriched with Hyaluronic Acid & Lipidure Lock-In Captors, a L’Oréal Paris Patented Technology and pure SPA water which helps to repair and strengthen the skin surface cellular armor to block moisture evaporation. Directly extracted from the French Vosges Mountain, this natural water is incredibly pure and rich in essential minerals: Copper [Cu++] known for its skin-healing and anti-inflammatory properties, Manganese [Mn++] known for its skin-healing and anti-oxidant properties, Calcium [Ca++] known to stimulate skin cohesion and Magnesium [Mg++] to help restore the skin barriers function. 
This first of its kind formula also includes Vitamins B5, for its soothing and repairing properties making skin smoother and more luminous and Cg and E for their antioxidant properties.

The New Hydrafresh Aqua Cream provides intense hydration all day long that provides nutrition to the skin and locks in moisturize. Its unique “cream to water” texture melts into skin to deliver a fresh and light sensation, instantly skin is smooth and soft with no greasy effect.  

The New Hydrafresh Facewash, enriched with Omega-Ceramide to help compensate for normal to combination skin, gently cleanses, removing face and eye make-up, immediately soothes your skin and helps restore a perfect level of hydration to the skin to prevent dryness.

L’Oréal Paris New Hydrafresh Aqua Cream and Facewash is appropriate and advisable for women of all ages and is ideally used daily on a cleansed face. 

Priced at PKR 550 and PKR 375 respectively, the New Hydrafresh Aqua Cream and Face Wash is now available at all L’Oréal Paris counters across the country.

Luscious:The Limited Edition Twilight Palette Review, Photos, Swatches

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed and follow me on Twitter and Face book Thanks for visiting !

Luscious LE Twilight palette was finally unveiled and what girl wouldn’t want a Twilight-inspired makeup? 
Luscious says : A limited-edition collection of new shades inspired by the Twilight Saga that will get you gorgeous in minutes!
Featuring the Cullen Crest on its cover, this petite palette is a treasure trove of eyeshadows, lip glosses and face shimmer inspired by characters from the series.
The Palette consists of: 
8 x Eyeshadows- 
4 x Lip glosses- 
Face shimmer

8 Eyeshadows : Each eyeshadow some how reflects the spirit of an iconic character. 
Top Row: Full Moon, Mortal, Jane, Eclipse,

Bottom Row: Alice, Esme, Venom, Rosalie. 
 All 8 eyeshadows have been formulated or maximum impact! The intense shades will glide on and stay put. Use as an all over wash of colour or layer them together for a glamorous look.

4 Lip Glosses: Glow, Emily, Fatal, and Bitten.

The lip glosses/lip tints in this palette are infused with shea butter to moisturise your lips with a soft hint of colour.
1 Face Shimmer: Bella

Use the Bella face shimmer on cheekbones and the center of your forehead for a surreal glow!
Packaging : It comes in a funky logo with cool pull out draw packaging with high quality mirror

I got the "The twilight palette" day before my Nikah , i was rushing to my salon as i was getting late for my hair dye appointment, I got the palette securely wrapped in bubble wrap,My first thoughts were  OMG its so cute and "compact". It looked pretty big in promo pics.But the palette is about the size a credit card.
I adore makeup palettes unfortunately i don't have many.But  I  love, love, love the ease, and creativity that an eyeshadow palette gives you. Its a perfect palette for any one who loves to experiment with different colors and looks.This palette will offer endless ways to recreate your look from day to night.
Once i came back home,I swatched the eye shadows after staring them for quite a long time . You girls have to trust me , the promo pictures didn't do justice to them because eyeshadows are quite vibrant and oh so gorgeous in real. 
 For me It is ALL about the eyes with this palette. I was excited about the eyeshadow from the day i saw the swatches on Luscious's blog 
 Most of these eyeshadows are Frosted (Frosted eyeshadow has an opaque finish with a white or silver sparkle. Pastels are popular frosted eyeshadow colors)
Full Moon: is a opal white shade with little silvery sparkle,  can be used to highlight under the brow and light up the center of eye
  Mortal:is iridescent pink with hint of silver
Jane:a deep sexy shade of denim blue. a navy blue with black undertones. My favorite
Eclipse:  is sparkling Grey black for a smoky effect.
Alice: is Rich and deep and grape purple
Esme: is beautiful shade of a lemon drop ,shimmering pale/ pastel yellow
Venom: is a beautiful green with subtle yellow / light gold tones., very unique shade
 and Rosalie : is a sparkling silver Grey shade
All eyeshadows are very interesting and  richly pigmented with the perfect velvety texture for smooth application. They absolutely glide onto the eyelid,and they have really FANTASTIC staying power.They blend so easily as well. But they tend to be crumbly.
If you had read my preview posts, you would know I wasn't so excited about the Bella face shimmer as it looked silvery white but its very light pink with shimmer and after swatching it , It reminds of Illasmaqua gleam cream but in powder form :)
It look bit darker for a highlighter , but after swatching it transfer as very pale iridescent pink with silver sparkles.

Luscious Twilight Palette consist of 4 beautiful lipglosses, which smell divine !! so coconutty. i want to eat them *yum*
These glosses are sheer with reasonable pigmentation
Glow: is transparent lip gloss
Emily:Fresh sheer peachy pink with orange undertone
Fatal: sheer gorgeous coral/peachy apricot colour.
Bitten: is a sheer Rich Berry Wine shade.

Now for the ultimate Twilight fan!! 

The Twilight Makeup Palette will be tied in with the biggest nationwide contest by Luscious yet. Each kit will contain a secret code number which will enable each customer to enter the contest. Prizes include signed
photographs of Twilight stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, as well
as merchandise related to the movie.
More details about the contest could be found on Luscious blog

How you can get Luscious Twilight Kit: retails for Rs 1495/- and can be purchased in stores nation wide or online from Luscious website.

Overall an intersrting palette if you are starting out and love shimmery eyeshadows , but i think its overly priced

What do you think of this new Twilight-themed make-up?
