Sleek MakeUP Luminaire Highlighting Concealer L02 - Review

Sleek MakeUP Luminaire Highlighting Concealer is the new wonderwand from SleekMakeup that writes a true cover story . No matter how little sleep you've had ,Luminaire will keep your secret safe .

A highlighting concealer with moisturizing properties ,Luminaire Highlighting Concealerdark circles , conceals blemishes and fades out imperfections. It provides instant radinace , Sleek Makeup introduces a new essential addition to any woman's makeup bag. Perfect for all skin tones and comes in 5 shades.The five shades ranges from L01 - L05, I was sent L02 which is the second lightest shade to try. 

A click-pen type dispenser with a fibre brush tip . It is fitted with a sturdy attached brush, I use the brush to dot the under eye area and then using my fingers or a concealer brush blend it. You can use the build in brush if you wish .

I cant say if its sleek' makeup's version to touche eclat as i havent had a chance to try the touche eclat . The texture is opaque,light and creamy. When i first swatched the L02 shade , i wasnt sure if it will work for my nc30-35 skin tone, but it blends in beautifully.  It looks flawless in pictures but it has tendency to settle down in wrinkles or dry patches. 
How i use it: I moisturize my face and esp the undereyes area and i use it  after i have applied my foundation,i start from the high points of my cheeks and to cover my somehow terrible under eye area. My dark circles are brightened up a lot which you will see in the photos below. 

Luminaire blends into the skin flawlessly with the help of a convenient brush applicator to achieve the perfect natural camouflage at the press of a button . Apply to the bare skin around the eye area , the hollow of the chin , and the top of the nose for a bright natural look ,or on top of the foundation to create a flawless canvas . Simply apply to the contour of the lips for a fuller , more defined pout
I was filming a haul video , which you can check [ here ] and i did whole face instead of eye , and i am uploading pic here so you all can see the effect of Sleek MakeUP Luminaire Highlighting Concealer

Sleek MakeUP Luminaire Highlighting Concealer launches on the may 11,2011 as a permanant listing in superdrug stores nationwide as well as

Go Bare for Memorial Day - European Wax Center‏

With bikini season upon us and Memorial Day being the initial celebration to welcome summer, we need to prep our bods for summer sexiness! Hair removal is one of the quickest and easiest ways to slip that bikini on with 100% confidence. European Wax Center offers ‘The Ultimate Wax Experience’ for guests with their detailed 4-step process and proprietary Parisian non-strip wax.
‘I’d love to put European Wax Center forward for consideration in an upcoming Memorial Day story as it is the best way to prep for beach season! They will also be hosting a ‘Wax Weekend’ for first-time customers which will include a complimentary wax service along with treats, music and prizes on June 4th and 5th!’

European Wax Center has three locations in Los Angeles: Redondo Beach, Westlake Village and Woodland Hills, with a location in Manhattan Beach set to open in July.

European Wax Center, the world’s leading specialist in body waxing, is celebrating its launch in Los Angeles on Saturday and Sunday, June 4 and 5, 2011 with a complimentary “Wax Weekend” in Redondo Beach, Westlake Village and Woodland Hills. The Manhattan Beach location will open in July and dates for the launch event will be announced soon.
During the inaugural Los Angeles “Wax Weekend” event, first-time guests are invited to enjoy a complimentary wax service, gift bags, coffee bar, delicious hors d’oeuvres and live music for a day of personal refreshment with friends or family. Reservations are recommended and walk-ins will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

European Wax Center’s motto, "The Ultimate Wax Experience," has never been more true. Known for a unique and thorough four-step waxing process that cleanses, protects, waxes and rejuvenates the skin, European Wax Center boasts a proprietary, non-strip wax formula developed in Paris and impeccable service from their specially trained wax experts.

The exclusive Parisian wax made with the world’s finest elastomers and polymers features 100% natural beeswax that is applied at a comfortable bath-water temperature, which allows wax to be applied in larger sections compared to other waxes and our proprietary wax does not include alcohol which can often result in drying, cracking and irritation.

European Wax Center also carries a line of six pre-wax and post-wax maintenance products designed to care for and improve the skin, including a cleanser, lotion, exfoliate, eyebrow shaper and restorer. The proprietary European Wax Center product line will improve the way skin looks, feels and responds to the hair re-growth process.

In addition to moving waxing out of spas and into the local neighborhood, European Wax Center’s wax pass program, competitive pricing and operating hours make it easier than ever for everyone to enjoy the benefits of waxing. They are open seven days a week with late evening hours to accommodate busy schedules. With 100 wax centers open nationwide, and another hundred in the process of being built, guests can enjoy a first-class experience that is consistent at every location across the country.

Beauty UK 3D FX Mascara -Review

3D means- having a three-dimensional form or appearance ,Meaning: Having a three-dimensional form or appearance.When i hear or read the word "3D", first thing which comes to my mind is movie"Avatar" and color blue. I haven't seen the movie yet , but one day i will in 3D cinema. If you live in Lahore do you know there is 3D cinema now ?

This creamy, intensely black formula, thickens, lengthens & glosses lashes. Apply one coat of 3D FX for doe-eyed, "look-at-me" lashes. Add a second coat for added oomph! The result? Lashes so luscious, they'll look like falsies.

I get carried away easily , back to mascara review, so when i read about Beauty UK 3D FX mascara , i was expecting the tube to be blue. I know I know !! I am crazy but imagine my joy when i opened the pink enevelope and there was this Hot pink Beauty UK 3D FX tube staring at me. I love pink , and instantly i fell in love with the packaging.

Okay so when i first opened the mascara , one thing i noticed that the it has dry formula,which is helpful for those who have thin sparse lashes like me. The brush is pretty decent. It have seen bigger mascara brushes. The application is easy , but for some reason i got mascara on my eyelids upon application, which never happens. It even left little gloppy dots on my lower lashes which you will notice in the below pictures.

With Beauty UK 3D FX mascara my lashes do look curled ,longer and tad bit thicker , but I'm not sure that the mascara lives up to what it claims.3D FX wasnt as easy to apply as i expected,i didn't notice any doe-eyed, "look-at-me at the first application , nor it added oomph effect at the second. I had to add multiple coats to get the result i wanted(somehow). I will try layering it with my HG mascara by Bourjois which has a watery formula and i am sure they will both do a fantastic job. I think it made quite average difference to my eyelashes, they look black, curled and thick.
I removed the mascara with the makeup wipes and it came off easily so i am thinking any good eyemakeup remover will do the job. 

All in all, I would say that the results with this mascara are average. It didnt live up to the claims but over all a pretty decent mascara for the price.

Price: £3.99

Ellis Faas's Blush S301 - Review

As some of you know , I was fortunate enough to feature the amazing  makeup line from Amsterdam-born makeup artist Ellis Faas before on Glossicious Beauty blog . I have almost liked everything from Ellis Faas which I’ve tried but mostly those were lip products. I still enjoy using my Ellis Faas lip products . Today i am going to review the Ellis Faas's Blush in S301

Made with essential oils, rose water and vitamins C and E, ELLIS FAAS blush gives cheeks a touch of colour while cooling and toning the skin for an instant fresh look. Apply a dot of colour directly to the middle of the cheek with the signature ELLIS FAAS pen and fade out with your fingertips or with the sponge that comes with the powder. ELLIS FAAS blush ensures a dewy finish and long-lasting glow.

Available in 4 Shades :
  • Blush - S301  
  • Blush - S302
  • Blush - S303
  • Blush - S304

Like all ellis faas products blush is packaged in a silver, bullet-shaped click pen, and the shade number is mentioned at the base of the pen. The Blush comes in a turn-up pen with a sponge.The Ellis Faas website recommends that you dab a small amount in the middle of each cheek using the sponge applicator and then blend, but prefer taking out some product on the back of my hand and then use a stipple / blush brush to apply it , sometimes i use my fingers.
Ellis Faas's Blush in S301 is a beige-peach, with hardly noticeable shimmer. This blush is very pigmented, but blends out bit sheer.The texture is so smooth , creamy and luxurious.It is really easy to blend. Its getting really hot where i live but the blush stays on for the almost whole day  on,  but it does fade out during the day end. It looks pretty natural but you can always layer it for more obvious look . You can also use a powder blush as a base and apply it over it .

From below swatch you can see how sheer it is 

Over all this blush  gives a beautiful natural flush. It's amazing how well it blends into the skin.  I love it.

The Ellis Faas blush is available at Ellis Faas for  $32 You can join ( or their  newsletter (via, so you can hear the moment they releases a new product :

Pastel Pink - Sleek Nailed Nail Polish [NOTD]

I have four of Sleek nailed nail polishes . I own the shades which  Sleek MakeUP launched laste year summer 2010, there were four ice cream shades .  Pastel Pink, Turquoise, Florida and Lilac .
I have swatched the Turqouise Nail Polish  , the Lilac Nail Poilsh and do check out the Sleek Makeup Nailed - Nail polishes  Pastel Pink  where it was featured in Glossicious's picks for the best pink nail polish for Valentine's Day

Pastel Pink Nail Polish is Part of the Sleek Nail Polish selection full of vibrant and stunning colours at Sleek Makeup. Sleek Nailed Polish in Pastel Pink is baby pink shade , Sadly it looks bit more pale on the camera.
I am impressed with the quality and color pay off of sleek makeup nailed polisehes.The brush was pretty reasonable and i only needed two coats to get the opacity i wanted. The first coat was bit streaky but second made it even.

They do last few days , infact i havent noticed any chipping but tipwear is pretty normal as my nails grow kinda fast . I will suggest using a good quality top coat. ( My recommendation Seche Vite Dry Fast Top coat ) .

Do you own any Sleek Makeup nailed polishes?
