Its time to do June favorites , time is flying , Summer is on full bloom. Its the month of mangoes and watermelons .mm.Its been a while since i did monthly favorites post. I was traveling last two months. so i missed doing it.



 

  • Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner  
  • Kroxx Eyelash Glue in black 
  • Bourjois volume clubbing mascara ultra black [Review]
  • Benefit crease less cream eyeshadow/liner in Recess [Review]

 I have been doing a lot of EOTD lately , i have started loving using false eyelashes , i wasn't so fond of the white cast some of the eyelash glues left , so i picked up Kroxx Eyelash adhesive which is already in black color. Perfect.  I used Benefit crease less cream eyeshadow/liner in Recess alot to prime eyelids prior to any eye makeup. Bourjois volume clubbing mascara ultra black is hads down my HG mascara, I bought the maybelline colossal volume express mascara but i dont like it as much i do the volume clubbing though its a pain to take off. Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner the BEST gel liner EVER. 


  • Ellis Faas Milky Lips L203 
  • NYXMega Shine Lip Gloss in Natural  
I got this NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in Natural when i ordered from porkdaisy a while back.  Its a one of those safe shades which will suit almost all skintones. Natural is one beautiful nude color. It looks stunning worn alone or over a lipstick. Ellis Faas Milky Lips L203 is a a deep reddish brown , complements my skintone quite well.



  • Korres Zea Mays Powder Blush in Purple Brown[ Review
The blush is so soft that when i tapped my brush instead of a swipe, it left the brush tips marks on the surface.
Swatches of Lip products & Blush 
Last but not least face products.  The Korres Ginger and Vitamin foundation is a dewy, creamy, sheer , Perfect for summer days. I am in shade LF6
"This lightweight, water based formula contains ginger extract to tone and moisturize while vitamins C and E protect the skin from external damage."

It is formulated WITHOUT:- Parabens- Sulfates- Synthetic Fragrances- Synthetic Dyes- PhthalatesWhat else you need to know:Ginger & Vitamins Foundation contains an SPF 10 and is part of the Korres Color Collection, a range of homeopathic formulas that provide flawless color and skincare benefits from natural ingredient . With The MAC Pro Longwear Concealer you only need a little.Its very pigmented .Yes a little goes a long way. The texture of the concealer is creamy and of course liquid. It blends out easily and amazingly . But when applying this concealer you have to work quickly as this starts drying it will become thicker and harder to blend. It gives medium to full coverage.

Beauty Uk shatter polish in Goth - NOTD



If you haven't already heard of the crackle/shatter nail polish trend, then you're living under the rock . I am starting to get really obsessed with nail polish and nail polish blogs.  Shatter Nail Polish is an amazing product built to give your nails a shatter look while combining with a base color for optimal appearance.



I have two of the Beauty Uk shatter polishes.

Punk is a matte hot pink

Goth is a matte black



The first shatter polish i tried was the Beauty Uk shatter polish in Goth.


BeautyUK Shatter Polish in Goth is a matte black.  I have applied it on Luscious's Nail lacquer in Diva and O.M.G doesnt it look stunning ? Best thing about Black shatter polish is that It looks great with brights, glitters, shimmers, and almost all sort of polishes as base. I used 2 coats of shatter polish , and it shattered with in few seconds.






Okay i am not sure if the formula has to be like this or mine was bit faulty but when i first opened/ tried it , and it was already goopy an thick, which made polish , hard to apply.But the formula of Punk shatter polish is perfect.



I tried co coordinating different base colors with the BeautyUK Shatter Polish in Goth. 
Polishes I used are :

Opi Glitzerland , Opi Strawberry Margarita , Illamasqua Gemma , Clarity Nail polish 341 and Sleek makeup Turquoise on thumb

I have used the Punk shatter polish over Goth shatter polish on middle finger.




Word of advise : This may be obvious that i am very impatient when it comes to let polishes dry , so you can see that i messed up a little bit so  be sure to only apply the Black Shatter top coat when your base is completely dry .

Beauty Uk recently added another shade to their shatter family in Night Fever  .

You can buy beauty Uk shatter polishes for Price: £2.99 including VAT 
and many affordable tempting products from beautyukcosmetics.com   (If you live in a land far, far away, don’t worry, you can still make your statement with beautyuk*. It does cost slightly more as the carrier pigeons need more food for long journeys.)

L’Oréal Professionnel X-Tenso Moisturist launch in Karachi


L'OREAL PROFESSIONNEL HAS MADE ONE OF ITS GREATEST SUCCESSES EVEN BETTER AND HAS LAUNCHED A STRAIGHTENING REVOLUTION: STRAIGHTENING SERVICES THAT THOROUGHLY NOURISH HAIR.

[Karachi: 09 June 2011] L’Oréal Professionnel Pakistan proudly introduced their exciting technological revolution in  haircare, the formaldehyde- free X-Tenso Moisturist. With the new X-Tenso Moisturist Nutri-Cationic innovation, hair can be both straightened and nourished from lengths to ends.




High levels of humidity is one of the greatest enemies of straight hair, since it increases volume and favours frizz.Pakistani women particularly suffer from it given the most of the country has an extremely humid climate. X-Tenso Moisturist's revolutionary Nutri-Cationic technology protects straightened or relaxed fibers from Pakistan’s extreme humidity. Comparative studies on sensitive hair, performed after 8 and 24 hours in very humid conditions, show that fibers processed with X-Tenso Moisturist gain much less volume and remain virtually without frizz over time. L’Oréal Professionnel gives beautiful straight hair, safe from Pakistan’s humidity, for all types of hair.

X-Tenso Moisturist's exclusive Nutri-Cationic technology represents a meeting between two worlds: straightening and care for soft straightening under the fiber- tensio-active Cationic molecules that bind to the  fragile, negatively charged parts of hair, in order to facilitate safe straightening and emollients and wax softeners which ensure softness, beauty and intense shine to hair. This hair-care cocktail provides unparalleled control, shine, softness and beauty. Hair is not only smoother, but is truly healthy and nourished, since the hair fiber is protected throughout the straightening process.

Professionals will find it even easier and more comfortable to use, since it does not run, and is easier and fasterto rinse. Another X-Tenso Moisturist innovation is its pleasant fragrance, which makes for much greater customer
comfort in the salon.

Business Unit Manager of L’Oréal Professionnel Product Division Sadia Shah spoke at the launch of X-Tenso
Moisturist and showcased a visual presentation about X-Tenso Moisturist followed by an unveiling of the three looks
that can achieved with X-Tenso Moisturist by Technical Manager L’Oréal Professionnel Ambreen Merchant.





Present at the event were L’Oréal’s creative consultant Nabila and leading hairstylists and beauticians such as Peng Quershi, President of the hair and beauty association of Pakistan Ruhana Iqbal, Nighat Misbah of Depilex Karachi, Angie Marshall, Neelo, Rukaiya Adamjee,Yasmin, Sehar, Asma Zaidi, Rosy Patel, Sana, Munaiza Zulfiqar, Sakina Khaleel-ur-Rehman, Shela Poonja, Shehnaz Abjani, Tazeen, Zarka, Lubna, Rizwana Khan and X-Tenso Moisturist Models Sohana, Sohai & Zarmeena and esteemed members of the media.

Speaking at the launch, Business Unit Manager L’Oreal Professionnel Products Division, Sadia Shah said: “With Xtenso Moisturist, women finally have control over their own hair! They can choose from three different looks- based on the level of straightening they desire. Xtenso Moisturist is a true revolution custom- made for Pakistan with our extremely humid climate. Not only does it nourish hair while straightening even in our extremely humid climate, it also offers a safe straightening solution to our market”.

X-Tenso Moisturist exists in three references, tailored for each hair type- natural, thick and resistant hair and sensitized hair. For each reference, three different services can be provided. This versatility allows three new services to be introduced- Brazilian Straight, Brazilian Smooth and Brazilian Relax based on the desired level of straightening of the customer.

L’Oréal Professionnel X-Tenso Moisturist hair straightening service is now available at L’Oréal Professionnel salons from June 2011 and onwards.


In Pakistan, L’Oreal Professionnels’ range of in-salon and homecare products and services are now available including flagship hair colour brands Majirel and Richesse, X-Tenso Moisturist for superior straightening, Série Expert, the award winning haircare system with exclusive homecare programs and Tecni.art, the professional styling range.
