OOTD: Knit Winter

Hello Everyone,

A few days before I am writing this, me and hubby went on a short holiday trip from Riyadh to Khobar, it is a beautiful place. I saw many things on highway like red sand, I have never seen red sand before and the black and white camels strolling everywhere in the desert. The cool breeze on highway was refreshing :)


Well here I'm wearing a knit dress which is warm and comfy for this weather and the white and blue
print gives it a wintery look. I paired my dress with some black tights and for that pop of color I'm wearing these red boots which are my new favourites for this winter season. I want to make this look simple but at the same time I also want to glam up a lil bit, so here I'm wearing my blue Jewel ring bracelet which I bought a year ago from Qatar and still in love with it.  For my makeup I'm keeping the rest of my face subtle and wearing this gorgeous red lipstick to add some extra glamour in my look. Last but not the least I wear these cute cube shaped earrings to complete my look.


                    
Product Used For Face:
  • Ponds white BB cream

M.A.C Rebel lipsstick Review and Swatch

Hello Everyone,

Its winter time everyone loves to wear bold colors so  I bought "Rebel" from M.A.C a couple of weeks ago. Its a perfect burgundy maroon shade which I was looking for so long and let me tell you I'm totally in love with it.

Well I wanted to buy few shades more but at the time they don't have it instock.


My Experience:
Its the perfect shade for this time of year. It has satin finish in it so looks a lil bit glossy. Its a gorgeous burgundy maroon color with some blue undertone. I just love the pigmentation it has, you only need a little touch of it and it goes a long way.

It lasts for 4 to 5 hours which is a good thing. Whenever I'm feeling to wear it a lil bit lighter than I just apply at the centre of my lips and dab it with my fingers to spread it all the way for a softer hint of the color, and whenever I'm in mood of  make it dark I usually use the lipstick from the  tube directly. Its not drying on my lips at all. I use this lipstick while I'm wearing a light eye makeup and a dark lip combo and I also love to wear it with dark lips and dark eye makeup for that dramatic bold look. It looks good on all skin tones and a must have for this winter season.



Application:
Apply lipstick directly from tube or you can use a brush as well. After you done with the application, take a synthetic brush dip it into foundation or you can use a concealer as well and than clean the areas around your lips for a polished look.


Tip Of the day:
If you want to make your lipstick matte than just dab some loose powder over it and tada now you have super matte lips :)

Swatch:


Thumbs Up:
  • Gorgeous shade
  • Great Pigmentation
  • Last for 4 to 5 hours

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlihting Concealer Review

Hello Everyone,


Today I'm reviewing Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in shade 02 beige nude. It comes in a rectable pen kind of packaging with golden font writing on it. Being an allergic person I always struggle with the dark circles so to cover up I'm always in a hunt to find a good concealer and give me a nice brighter look. And after hearing so many mix reviews about this concealer+highlighter I decided to try this out. It comes in many shades to choose from so lets scroll down to read my experience about it ^_^.



My Experience:
I'm a serious concealer freak and I love to try out concealers from all the high ends and drugstore ones. I got this concealer in shade 02 Nude Beige which is a tad lighter than my skin and perfect to highlight the areas of my face I want. Its very light texture blends easily too. Whenever I have to brighten up my face instantly I just grab this baby and apply it on the areas of my skin those I want to highlight or I want to brighten up within a seconds.

It has light coverage, I use it under my eye, bridge of my nose, my forehead, my cupid bow and on my chin. I can use it on daily basis when i need a light coverage+highlighting effect. But when I'm going out for get together or on date and I need a lil bit extra coverage than I first apply a concealer which has medium to full coverage to hide my dark circles almost completely and after that I put this on top of it to highlight the area. so for me its a good stuff for highlighting my face with a light coverage.



Application:
Twist it up a few times and your product will come from this pen and than draw a triangle shape around your dark circles and then blend it with a brush or sponge and you can use your fingers as well.

Swatch:




Thumbs Up:
  • Highlights the uneven areas of your face instantly
  • Comes in rectable pen
  • Buildable
Thumbs Down:

  • Light coverage
  • Runs out quickly

Texture:
Creamy


Price:
Sar 45


My Rating:
3.8/5


Availability:
Riyadh: White Pharmacy, City lifestyle, and Hayat mall
Karachi: Ebco, Aghas, Scentstation

Would I Repurchase It?
Maybe

e.l.f Studio Blush In Twinkle Pink Review+Swatches

Hello Everyone,

Today I'm gonna talk about this beautiful blush by elf cosmetics which is  called "Twinkle Pink".
There are eleven shades to choose from.
It comes in a hard black plastic packaging along with a little mirror inside. It does not have a mirror which means you are getting lots of product inside. E.l.f cosmetics comes with many good products with such a reasonable price tag so lets see does it work for me or not ?



My Experience:
Its a coral peachy color with some gold glitter particles. I love the pigmentation and it only needs a dab of brush and bang I get a gorgeous color payoff. I love the staying power of this blush it last for hours. The blush smoothly blends on skin and does not leave a powdery or chalky feeling but the only downside is the gold particles which are a lil bit chunky and fell off, to fix that make sure when you apply this on your cheeks nicely dab your brush on back of your hand before applying it on your face.

It gives me a glowy highlighted effect which I really liked. It looks great on every skin tone..  The e.l.f studio line blushes came in many shades with a economical price tag which you guys gonna love it



Application:
Load your brush into the blush than dab a lil bit on the back of your hand and apply it on the your cheeks or the other area of your face where you want some glow.



Swatch:

Thumbs Up:
  • Gorgeous color
  • Smooth texture
  • Economical
  • Pigmented
  • Comes in a sleek hard plastic packaging

Thumbs Down:
  • Don't like the glitter chunks in it
Quantity:
NET WT. 0.17 oz (4.75g)


Texture:
Smooth

Price:
Pkr:630
$3.00

My Rating:
3.7/5

Availability:
Pakistan:Beautyinbudget4u (Face book Page)
Saudi Arabia: Limited Editions (Face book page)

Would I Repurchase It?
Yes but in different shade



Have you tried this blush yet? Share your thoughts ^-^
