Latest Beauty buys & more

Yayeee !! i am home .If you follow me on twitter or on facebook , you would know that i was on vacation for a week. I was spending time with my cousins and my bestie . I had the most amazing time of my life. I wasn't planning on buying anything but you know me , i cant stop myself. So this post will contain some pictures and prices of my latest beauty buys  and more .

Alfatah is like my second home in Lahore. I love the place. I love roaming round in the basement and on the ground floor. All of the beauty items were purchased from alfatah or hence mentioned. 

Nail Polishes :

I am going through a serious nail polish phase although i dont wear them so often. I bought these 4 nail polishes from Alfatah.

  • Avon styling nail polishes in #187 & #118 ( i highly doubt it that they are original avon nail polishes) - Price each for rs 175/-
  • Sally Hanson Professional Heat Sealed Base Coat -Price rs 230
  • Golden rose nail lacquer in #69 - Price 130 /- approx

If you are looking for Deborah Lippmann polish in Happy Birthday then the avon nail color in #187 is a close dupe. The only difference i could tell was that the avon one had a slightly blue base.  [Swatch]

 [lipsticks ] 

  • Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick- Price rs 730/-
  • Golden rose perfect shine lipstick in shade #219- Price rs 300/-

My lovely reader Hareem , suggested me to try goldenrose lipsticks. She asked me to have a look at their 3000 range,but instead i fell in love with the golden rose perfect shine lipstick in shade #219(beautiful creamy peachy nude shade) .I love it. It is easily applicable with a soft and velvety texture. I will surely pick up more next time. I went to maybelline kiosk to buy few things and i was rather disappointed with the selection of  Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks. They didn't have their best sellers shades like warm me up , born with it , and few more. But i like the shade Brown Attitude #770 . They come in different categorizes Pink, Red, Purple, Brown.


  • Sweettouch eyepencil Brown & Black - Price rs 175/- each
  • Maybelline lasting drama gel liner - Price 850

If you are in Pakistan and cant find/afford Urban decay 24/7 eye pencils. You Have to try sweet touch eye pencils. I already have their turquoise and purple and they are my absolute favorite . I bought the brown and black this time. They dont smudge easily and almost water resistant. I love them . I am a huge eyeliner girl. I bought the Maybelline lasting drama gel liner because my e.l.f cream liner [Review] & Coastal scents gel liner [Review] were drying and dying. I love the maybelline gel liner. Its so far the best i have tried, rs 850 well spend. 


  • Bath and bidy works Anti-Bacterial PocketBac® Sanitizing Hand Gel
    in Twilight Woods -Price rs 230/-

I almost died and went to heaven when i saw bath and body works PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel at Alfatah DHA,Lahore. They were shinning like stars at the top shelf. There were many scents like sweet pea , dancing waters , I love boys berry crush and few more. I grabbed the on in twilight woods. 
  • Suave deostick sweetpea & violet  - price rs 145/-
  • Impulse deodorant - price rs 145/- 


  • Chunky rings - price rs 100/- each
  • Long earnings - price 450/-

Darn ! i forgot to take  pictures of the most favorite item of my haul so i attaching the iphone pictures. 
  • 4U2 I-Pro Palette in Impressive - Price 1550/-

I love them , i can say that the best palette i won /tried/bought so far. The packaging is sturdy and solid . The palette stores 8 beautiful shimmery large eyeshadows. The overshadows have almost metallic sheen and OMG they are buttery soft. A must must buy.
Now i am having thoughts, because i really want 4U2 I-Pro Palette in Contemporary. I might sell /give to my cousin and buy the one which is more neutral.

So that's the haul or beauty buys. Let me know if you want me to swatch or review anything first.

  11. @rabia
    i bought it from alfatah located at DHA Y block market , just go to the basement , to the bodywahses shower gel section behind the soaps and deo aisle ,hand sanitizerrs will be there . They are placed at the top shelf. I asked them about more BBW stuff and they told me that they are expecting more in coming weeks. so if you go there ask them :)

  12. Thanks Sarah!
