e.l.f Contouring Blush & Bronzing Cream In St. Lucia Review+Review

Hello Everyone,

Today I'm sharing my experience about this "e.l.f Contouring Blush" and bronzing cream in
"St. Lucia".  e.l.f products are not locally available in Pakistan so I ordered this duo from an online selling page called "Beautyinbudget4u".  I got this in cream form instead of powder, because I already have some blushes and contour powders so thought to try this one as well. It comes in a sleek black pan duo with mirror inside.




My Experience:

Nowadays contouring is at its high peak and everyone want to contour to enhance the features. With this duo palette you can not only contour your face but you can also add some color to your cheeks with its cream blush which is a big add to its functionality. Both shades are gorgeous the one on the left is peachy pink and the other one is a beautiful brown shade which is perfect for contouring.

The texture is so rich and creamy with a soft frangrance. I only need a lil dab of brush and I'm good to go. Its creamy texture blends very easily on skin and you can achieve a bronze goddess look with this baby. It comes with great pigmentation with no shimmer added.

It lasts for 3 to 4 hours which is great for this budget friendly product which comes with two shades with a reasonable price tag so its not heavy on pocket too. If you are looking for a contour and blush in cream form than just go and grab this.




Application:
Take this brown (contour) shade and make a duck face so you can see your hairline and than put it there and than just blend it well to get the perfect sculpted cheekbones.

Swatches:




Thumbs Up:
  • Great Pigmentation
  • Rich formula
  • Stay 3 to 4 hours
  • Economical
  • Great color selection


Thumbs Down:
  • Not available locally in Pakistan

Quantity:
Net Qt 0.35 oz (10g)

Price:
PKR 630

Boots Pharmacy Strawberry and Yougurt Intensive Hair Treatment Review

Hello Everyone,


Fall is here and it brings frizz hair and the horrors of hair fall. Today I'm going to talk about this amazing "Strawberry & Yogurt Intensive Hair treatment" by Boots pharmacy, which locks frizz, hair fall and make hair super soft and smooth. Scroll down to read my experience about it.


My Experience:

My Hair are thick, frizzy and wavy and its quiet difficult for me to manage them but when I saw this product at EBCO store I thought to try it out. After applying this product on my hair I must say I'm in love with it. The rich & creamy formula of this makes my hair super soft and silky with less frizz. I apply this hair treatment after every shampoo and leave it for 5 minutes and than rinse it with water, and guess what I see my hair were super smooth with less frizz yayyyy... :D

Well If your hair are frizzy, thick and rough like mine than try this product out I promise you wont regret.

It has a sweet strawberries and yogurt scent in it which every girl definitely love. It is great for humid weather like we have in Karachi and a best option for fall time because I don't want my hair look like broom :P

The 600ml bottle come with a very reasonable price tag. The only down side of this hair treatment is its packaging, I think it would be easier if it comes in a squeeze tube packaging or in a pump. 



 
Application:
After shampoo take a generous amount of this hair treatment and apply this on your hairs and after 5 minutes rinse it with water.



Thumbs Up:
  • Makes hair soft and silky
  • Less frizz
  • Economical
  • less hair fall
  • Rich formula

Thumbs Down:
  • Don't like its packaging


Quantity:
600ml

My Rating:
4.5/5


Texture:
Rich and creamy


Price:
PKr590


Availability:
Karachi: Ebco & Park Towers

Makeup Revolution Salavation Velvet Lip Lacquer's Review+Swatches

Hello Everyone,

Today I'm going to review the most raved product now a days, the "Makeup Revolution's Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquers".  There are many mix reviews about these so lets try to see if its worth the hype or not ? It comes in a hard sleek acyclic lip gloss tube which looks very cute and classy.



My Experience:
These gorgeous lacquers comes in a huge color range and I had a chance to get three of them so for that I selected "what I believe", Keep Flying for you" and last but not the least "keep crying for you".

These Velvet lacquers are super opaque and pigmented. They are velvet lacquers so they have matte finish in it. These are not glossy or transparent like the other lacquers are, these are really vibrant and pigmented and when you apply it takes 45 seconds to dry so don't close your lips until it dries completely. It comes with a doe- foot wand which makes application easy. It lasts for  2 to 3 hours. But after few hours it started fading from the middle of my lips and it dries out like bubblegum. When I want to remove it looks like I'm removing dried bubble gum particles from my lips, which is understandable because these are velvet lacquers :(

It doesn't mean that the weirdness turns me down, I'm going to keep these beautiful lacquers in my life. They look super sexy on me and I can wear these on any occasion including daily use.

I'm really loving its pigmentation and how it looks on me :D



Application:
Apply an even coat on your lips and make sure you don't close your lips until it completely dries otherwise it will spread.


Swatches:



Thumbs Up:
  • Love its chic packaging
  • Economical
  • Pigmented
  • Lasts for 2 to 3 hours


Thumbs Down:
  • Dries out like a bubble gum
  • After few hours it starts fading from the middle

Quantity:
2ml e

Texture:
creamy


Price:
Pkr 550

My Rating:
3.5/5


Availability:

Would I Repurchase It?
Maybe

e.l.f Makeup Mist & Spray Review

Hello Everyone,

Today I'm reviewing "e.l.f Makeup Mist & Set" It comes in a transparent plastic spray bottle with aloe, green tea, cucumber and vitamins A, C & D extracts in it.
I was looking for a makeup fixing spray for a long time and i don't want to spend a lot of money on any high end brand, and one day I reached a page called "Beautyinbudget4u" and had a Chance to get my hands on it.


My Experience:
This spray keeps my makeup at place and protect it from any kind of fading up to 4 to 5 hours, which is great for a drugstore product.  Having a combination skin I always face dryness on some spots of my face so after using this spray I came to this point that it is a great soothing product for a dry or combination skin too. I mean it doesn't make my skin dry and when I spray it on my makeup it gives me a perfect finish which I really like. With this mist my makeup looks more vibrant or you can say pigmented. If I want to make any eyeshadow intense I just spray a pump on my brush and took eyeshadow from my palette and then bang! my eyeshadow looks more intense which is really cool.
The mist smells not bad but not good as well. The only thing which i don't like about it, that it sprays allot in a pump otherwise I totally recommend this product to those who want their makeup at place for hours with a nice finish.



Application:
Just finish with your makeup than close your eyes and spray it on your face and let it dry for a minute and tadaaaa you are ready to rock your makeup without fading and creasing.

Swatch:

 I applied a pump over this shadow in pic 1, and after I tried to remove the shadow it  does not wipe off completely as you can see in the pic 2 


Thumbs Up:

  • Economical
  • Easy to use
  • Sets makeup at place
  • lasts for 4 to 5 hours


Thumbs Down:
  • It sprays allot 
  • Not a fan of its smell

Quantity:
202 fl oz/60 ml


My Rating:
4/5


Texture:
watery

Price:
Pkr650


Availability:
Its not locally available in Pakistan for online store check facebook page "Beautyinbudget4u"


Would I Repurchase It?
yes



Have you tried this mist before? share your thoughts :)
