Review- Luscious Flawless liquid Foundation

Luscious Flawless liquid  Foundation

  • Ivory  (For very fair skin tones
  • , Natural , (For fair to light skin tones
  • Sand , (For light beige skin tones) 
  • Medium Beige(for warm beige skin tones)
  • Honey( For warm caramel skin tones)
Price :Rs 675 for 30ml (1.2  FL oz).

You can buy this beauty from : or Luscious counters nation wide

The one I am reviewing for you is "NATURAL " Shade...Its a perfect shade for my skin tone.

According to the Luscious  website,  It’s truly flawless! This oil-free silicone formula will keep your skin looking deliciously fresh and matte without appearing heavy. It will blend perfectly and never turn Grey like other foundations.

With the help of a team of international cosmetic chemists and makeup artists, Luscious Cosmetics has spent two years researching the various skin tones unique to our part of the world.

The result: a range of shades made especially to enhance our complexion with a formula that stays in place.

Packaging: Let's start on the packaging.This foundation is in the plastic bottle...
This foundation is not very thick, or very runny.It just has what I'd consider a "normal" liquid foundation texture.Luscious foundation brush  gives a lovely, even coverage. Its best for oily skin because its oil free liquid foundation.

           Luscious Flawless liquid  Foundation gives smooth,even,matte  full coverage . You can blend out to a lighter coverage..This blends very well into my skin. It doesn't give an obvious foundation , cakey look, but covers what I need it to.

It gives a pretty matte finish which everyone is looking for. It is also  buildable, but a little goes a long way.

        It actually feels very light on my skin. I hate to feel foundation on my face, and I can't feel this at all when I've finished applying. the foundation lasts pretty much all day even without applying any face primer. thats the best part :) ..I think that this foundation works pretty well for me, and if you want a long-wearing liquid foundation then this could be the one for you.its an excellent product for summer...

Final Say:    Overall, I'd consider this is a "GOOD" foundation for our  Pakistani skin tones..Perfect for Desi people with yellow undertones..

All comments and any other questions about anything I haven't covered in the review are more than welcome:)

I'm also interested in finding out about what others feel about Luscious Flawless liquid  Foundation

Review - Limited Edition Eyeko Cream with Extra Glow

What it is : New & Exclusive!  Eyeko Cream with Extra Glow is a multitasking highlighter with all the benefits of your favourite cult classic Eyeko Cream. This NEW dreamy pink cream is loaded with micro light reflecting pigments perfect for creating a soft focus sheen. Add a flattering highlights to brow and cheek bones, your cupids bow, even collar bones and shins for a touch of moonlit magic.

What does it do: Creating the illusion of perfect skin has never been simpler with Eyeko Cream with Extra Glow!
Packaging : Eyeko Cream with Extra Glow comes in a cute little pink plastic pot and it has a white lid which helps product from leaking, although cream itself is pretty thick.
 The packaging is adorable.
Texture:it's a rich cream which has thick consistency , easily to blend.
Result: A perfect subtle silvery glow. 

With Flash

Without Flash

Final Say: I have never used the Eyeko Original 3 in 1 cream but It differs from from Eyeko Cream which gives a golden glow whereas the 'Extra Glow' shows off a silver highlight.
I will be using it on my cheek bones , Brow bones, collar bones Temples, or nose and cupids bow.Its perfect if your skin is having a dull day and you want the perfect Glow. I kinda  liked consistency, as it makes it easier to pick up the right amount with a stippling brush or whatever you are using for applying.The color is silvery , beigh-ish pink in the pot ,but once applied, the color just becomes subtle silvery glow. You need a little , so this jar will go you loong way :)
 Price : £8.00

You can buy this beauty

Over all i like eyesko Products, i have tried their graffiti pens, mascaras, nail polishes , and couple more, they are affordable and ships internationally

Have you ever tried eyeko products?

NEW - Glossicious Lay out & Look

Hola ! Ladies

Have you noticed something different around??

yup ! i changed the whole Glossicious Look.
I always had like black layout but this time i went for something soft and what could be better than PINK
So feel free to browse and leave me a comment ,

what you think??

is it Love it OR leave it?

Review - Garnier Color Naturals in shade Chocolate

Did you read Glossicious Confession like few weeks  month ago??
Let me refresh your memory :  I have premature Grey hair ! i aint no Richard Gere ! needs to dye every 2 weeks to cover Grey !  yes.. so today's post includes includes Garnier Color Naturals, a range of Hair Colors that is enriched with Natural Olive Oil. Their Skin Naturals line includes Garnier Light enriched with Pure Lemon Essence and Vitamin C and Garnier Essentials infused with Vitamin E. In Hair Care, the Fructis Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Styling products enjoy ready acceptance amongst consumers in Pakistan.
I was sent Garnier Color Naturals in shade Chocolate to try. This shade is right up my alley. I prefer Chocolate brown , ashy , reddish browns in summer. I have been dying my hair since i was a teenager, it only had a strand of grey hair at that time , but now i have like 65% grey hair. I wonder what went wrong?

So i dyed my hair today , i opened up the box, It comes with an instruction manual , which has all the helpful information+ pictures one could need like try skin test 48hrs before you use the dye ,etc , also includes thin plastic gloves, , a tube of colourant, a development bottle and the  conditioner sachet.
To Use: squeeze the colourant into the development bottle and shake vigorously. I usually mix them in the bottle and then pour the mixture in a bowl and use it with a hair dye brush  in layers,because i feel comfortable using this way. You can use directly from the bottle after ,snap the cap off, and squeeze mixture on hair.
The mixture is quite thick , so make sure that once you are done dying , massage it gently in your hair. This will way hair dye will spread evenly in your hair.
Important: Make sure to check in to the mirror .time to time , to see if you dont have any stains/ marks on forehead, neck , or face.If you do , don't panic , just wipe/rub it off.
I have long hair , almost till waist to i usually need two hair dye boxes, This time i only covered top crown of my head.I keep the dye in hair for like 45 mins , because my hair are 1- long 2-thick and 3-Grey. Suggested time is approx 25 mins. I washed it , and i always use conditioner usually those ones which are suitable for colored hair, i am using  Tresemme Color Revitalize Conditioner these days. 
After wash and shampooing , first thing  always notice is how soft are my hair? and are they shiny/glossy?Because i had a problem in past with some hairdyes, leaving my hair dry and dead.But I was impressed with Garnier color natural (UK version) , so i had high hopes with this box too. Fortunately i got the shine, and Ok-ish softness, umm lets put it this way ,it could be better.
But for the price RS 299/ and Range of colors. i will certainly repurchase.

Results: Dont be fooled people , my hair aren't this chocolaty brown, it gives a hint of brown if i go in to sun or if light hits my hair, otherwise they look pretty much same.

Note: Please bear in mind , that hair color might show differently on you , My hair are 65% grey , long and thick .

Whats your favorite brand when it comes to dyeing your hair?

Review-L'oreal Studio Secrets™ Professional Magic Perfecting Base

Get the perfect skin texture, instantly and all day. The silky, lightweight formula glides onto skin and minimizes the look of pores and fine lines. Skin looks and feels smoothed and resurfaced. The result is a unified matte finish that's flawless. 

Who should use it :Suitable for all skin types. Dermatologist tested. Non-comedogenic.

L'oreal Studio Secrets™ Professional Magic Perfecting Base comes in a small glass jar and its light pink in color.
The primer leaves a very  soft velvety base for foundation . It evens  out my complexion very well and It also fills in my pores  which i absolutely loved.
How I apply : I  apply it in a circular motion instead of rubbing it in.I usually let the this set for 2-3 mins prior to applying foundation for best results. Its recommended with any other primer you used.
sometimes i only apply it on areas needed  like mostly mt T zone or Cheeks as you would want the rest of your skin on to breathe :)

  • It keeps your make-up on for decent amount of time
  • The texture is soft , silky and smooth , almost whipped
  • The primer leaves a very  soft velvety base for foundation
  • It evens out my skin tone with filling in my pores 
  • It sort of mattifies the skin without making it dry
  • I have sensitive skin and I haven't broken out yet (fingers crossed)

Cons : 
Only few, 
  • I find a jar little  inconvenient for traveling I would love it in a a tube.
  • Its availability in Pakistan
  • Price would be a turn off for some

Overall, I am pretty happy with L'oreal Studio Secrets™ Professional Magic Perfecting Base. I think  primers are absolute must for everyone.

Thank you Erica M. (MzMore) for sending it to me
