Rouge Bunny Rouge Eyeshadow in Veiled Lyrebird - Review , Swatch & EOTD

Its time for another EOTD , eyes of the day , This time i am here with another peachy day time ,very fresh look.  I paired some of my favorite brands here , which works really well together.  The main product in this look is rouge bunny rouge Veiled Lyrebird (When Birds Are Singing Long-Lasting Eye Shadows in Veiled Lyrebird) . 

When Birds are Singing...  Long-lasting Eye Shadow

The firefly festival is eagerly awaited all year in the Enchanted Garden. For then on this very special day, the best voices of the bird-world feed on tiny fireworks to embellish their voices and then gather to perform a single concert together. Their jubilant musical notes are inscribed in a syrup of figs and milk and preserved in tiny pots to be enjoyed all year round. Like this golden froth of musical syrup, WHEN BIRDS ARE SINGING... eye shadows are a time defying exotic enigma. This is plumage to adorn you in shades as deliciously mellow as soft silence that flows, or as brilliantly potent as jewelled notes. So addictive are these morsels that you’ll be causing your own kaleidoscopic ripples every time you wear them.

The packaging is  utterly gorgeous with beautiful illustrations not only on the case but on the actual product packaging . There is an embossed R , on the shadow which in my opinion is really cute and classy .

Veiled Lyrebird  : is a Iridescent pale pink copper, with peach overtone.  A beautiful
copper toned but does have a faint hint of pink/peach to it. Perfect for everyday look.
Rouge Bunny Rouge  eyeshadow has won my heart , infact my soul . It an amazing shade, perfect for any skintone, it works amazing on my nc 30-35 skin tone. This shade is the perfect for summers, as it has got the  everyone's favorite stunning fine shimmer/sheen, which looks stunning .its so fine in texture , not at all griddy or chunky. The texture is buttery soft and i am happy to report that there was no fallout either.

How I Store My Makeup Palettes ?

I will be honest , I have never thought that with time i will have so much makeup that i will have to continuously changing my makeup storage to accommodate my growing makeup collection. Thanks to beauty blogging & Youtube Gurus, i get some pretty affordable and space saving ideas. 

With time I will show you how i store my stash ,  Today i will start with how i store my makeup palettes

I went down to Variety books ,Lahore couple of months ago and they had a selection of nice file/letter holders , as well as some nice office trays , which can store lipsticks and makeup pencils.So I picked up a letter holder  to store my palettes in.

My Sleek Makeup palettes in a letter holder. Its a small sized letter holder so you can squeeze in 6 sleek makeup palettes. These dividers aren't spacious so you cant fit bigger palettes  in them but they are the perfect size to store 6 Sleek Makeup palettes or nyx 10 Color Eye Shadow Palettes /runaway palettes.

This is how I "store" my small sized , most frequently used palettes. I found this letter holder at Variety Books depot t for cheap, like rs 150-175. There was a file holder too , which can store bigger pallets like Coastal Scents 88 eyeshadow Palettes , Mac Palettes and more.

These palettes are perfect for when i want a good view of the palettes without having to rummage through all drawers. I keep it on the top of my drawer with my brushes and eye pencils  . So i can grab them and create some EOTD.

How do you store your makeup palettes ?

Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion - Review

Since i am an obsessed   dedictaed beauty blogger , i spend more than half of my day sittig infront of my laptop, respondig to emails, watching tv shows, tweeting , facebooking , looking for cool deals for you guys , composing posts, editing photos , some days i sleep really late because some really good movie is palying on tv or i am just sleepless. Or just staring at monitor clueless , for hours for blog post ideas.
Result :  puffy, sore, tired eye

Then came Liz Earle Eyebright soothing lotion came to rescue 

Wake up and revitalise eyes with cotton wool pads soaked in this gentle, soothing herbal lotion before using Cleanse & Polish.  

Combine it with Daily Eye Repair& Smoothing Line Serum
To do a facial eye treatment in the comfort of their own homes, you can simply soak two cotton wool pads of our Eyebright and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. Then apply Soothing Line Serum around your eye contour (gently patting with their ring fingers) and finally apply the two chilled pads for 15minutes and relax. This will help decongest and hydrate the eye area, leaving eyes looking bright and beautiful!

Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion is a little sister of Instant Boost Skin Tonic.   when comes to packaging , Its the same rectangular packaging with its twist-up lid. The texture is of water consistency. Its non greasy , not sticky at all. 

How to use :
Suggested method :Apply Eyebright to cotton wool pad to clean and wake up your eyes first thing.For a revitalising, soothing compress, soak 2 cotton wool pads in Eyebright and place over eyes and relax for 5 – 10 minutes. Eyebright is light, non-oily and suitable for contact lens wearers.

I store  my Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion i the fridge . Since its really hot these days, applying it after chill makes my eyes feel much better & awake . I dont use it on daily basis . I keep it for those times of need.

Day Time :: During day time, I usually , we a single cotton ball, and quickly sweep this over both eyes.  It really helps my eyes feel more awake instantly.

NightTime ::I mostly use it before going to bed, after a long day in front of a computer screen . I just wet two cotton balls , and place them on your eyes, sit back and relax for 10 mins. It gives me refreshing relief just beforei go to sleep. This also helps removing every last trace of eye make up that's there , i my case, usually my kajal. Also if i have been out and had to wear heavier eye make up, usually my eyes feel irritated after cleansing so i soak a cotton ball and repeat the above method , it helps to soothe and calm them.

Its a cross between an eye makeup remover and a toner of sorts for eyes, which helos soothing, cooling and calming .

Price & Availability : Eyebright costs £9.70 for 150ml or £4.85 for a travel size 50ml bottle and can be purchased online at .  Liz Earle ships internationally.

My First Beauty Swap

I have always loved the idea of Beauty Swaps because  it's a good way to try out products that you've never tried before or in my case not easily available to purchase in my country. I did my first ever makeup swap and i am so happy , I couldn't wait to share it with you guys.

Today I want to share with all of your some great stuff that I got from Maddi   , she is one of the most talented self taught youtube guru in Pakistan, She loves online shopping as much as i do. Quickly we became good friends , she chat about so many things on phone and on fb. One day we thought about doing a makeup swap , we talked about it , we emailed back and forth and finally we did it.


So here is what i got :

OPI Shrek Tacular Minis Forever After Limited Edition by OPI 

This set includes mini bottles of the colors in the picture below which are: What’s With The Cattitude?, Rumple Wiggins, Who The Shrek Are You? and Fiercely Fiona.

Serious shine and sexy color in sheer, semi-sheer and creamy formulas. Turkish Delight lip gloss by Nars is a cult favorite among beauty lovers. Even Kim Kardashian uses it to complete her signature pink-y nude lips so i wanted to try that what is it about this lip gloss that has everyone raving? .

NARS Lipgloss in Turkish Delight
NARS Lipgloss in Sweet Revenge

I love collecting blushes, to be honest i wouldn't be caught with out my kajal and blusher. Nyx powder blush in cafe is my first ever nyx blush, other than ones i have ordered at hubby's address.
 Cafe is a Deep rose-tinged brown

 and lastly , nyx jumbo pencil in black bean , i already have milk and yogurt which i ordered from posrk daisy a while back . I also got sigma beauty brush in E35, she was so sweet and kind enough to throw in a nail polish , which i had no idea about.
