Jeffree Star Summer 2016 Limited Edition Velour Liquid Lipstick in Watermelon Soda & 714 Review+Swatches

Hello Everyone,

Today I'm reviewimg these two beautiful shades from "Jeffree Stars Summer 2016 Limited Edition". I bought these lipsticks in July but after that I was in Pakistan for holidays and then came back and stuck in house chores.Well I got these lipsticks in the shade "Watermelon Soda" & "714". they came in this clear tube but with a different color opener which makes it so summery and fresh.

My Experience:

Watermelon Soda:
Its a bright coral pink shade which looks beautiful on almost all skin tones. It lasts on lips for hours which is a plus point. It does not dry out my lips at all.
It beautifully covers my entire lip in one single swipe. Its really smooth and does not streaky on lips. I love how versatile these lipsticks are, you can totally rock this lipsticks as a eyeliner which is amazing.

714:
But when it  comes to 714 which is a pastel neon pink with purple undertones, it washed me out. So if yore fairer then me than this 714 is definitely your shade but otherwise you have to mix this color with any other color to get the desired shade. Its a lil bit streaky to work with, and also you need 2-3 layers to get the exact color.  So a big no to this color otherwise I love "JS Velour Liquid Lipsticks".
If you're a person who is on the light side then go and give it a try otherwise I suggest you not to buy this color although watermelon soda looks beautiful on both dark & light skin tone.


Application:
Exfoliate your lips and then pat dry with a tissue paper or towel and apply it direct with the wand or you can use a lip brush as well.


Swatches:


Thumbs Up:
  • Pigmented
  • Long lasting
  • Beautiful shades
  • Not drying at all

Thumbs Down:

Love the wand of  "JS" liquid lipstick, it makes application really easy for me.The formula is amazing, I mean to say that it doesn't make my lips dry at all. lasting power is pretty good. It lasts around 5 to 6 hours which is great. I remember I had this lipstick on my lips and after that I had my coffee/lunch and it did not fade at all, it was on my lips through out these hours. It feels so light on lips and moisturizing. The most interesting thing about Jeffree star lipsticks is that you can use it as an eyeliner as well, and trust me you'll definitely love it.

Anastasia's "Modern Renaissance" Palette Review+Swatches

Hello Everyone,

Since this palette launched I had my eyes on it, and really wanted to try it out so I ordered this palette from facebook page "Fashion & Makeup Riyadh" and started playing with it. The packaging is classy and elegant at the same time, it came in this velvet soft pink case along with a dual ended brush and mirror in it.



My Experience:
In this Platte you re going to get 14 eye shadows. All shades are equally pigmented and beautiful. The eye shadows are very soft and they blend easily on crease. It comes with 11 matte and 3 shimmery/metallic colors in it, which makes it an all rounder. You can create a soft brown eye makeup look for office/university or you can simply rock it with creating cut crease and smokey eye makeup look for parties/weddings. I love all the colors in this palette but my most favourite colors are "Burnt orange, primavera, red ochre. Realgar and Cyprus amber.  This pallet comes along with a dual ended brush which is great, with that brush you can apply your eyeshadow and blend it out as well with the other side of the brush.


Application:
If you want to last your makeup all day long than put any eyeshadow base/primer first and then apply eye shadows on, and if you want to avoid any fall out then make sure after taking shadow on your brush tap it a little.

Swatches:


Thumbs Up:

  • Elegant packaging
  •  Easy to blend
  • Pigmented colors
  • Not Chalky at all
  • Going to get all beautiful warm shades in it
  • Comes with dual ended brush

Thumbs Down:
  • Fall out a bit

Quantity:
NET WT 0.07g / 0.02 oz

Texture:
Smooth/velvety


Price:
SAR245

My Rating:
4.7/5

Rimmel Provocalips in Skinny Dipping Review+Swatches

Hello Everyone,

Today I'm reviewing this inexpensive and long lasting  liquid lipstick from "Rimmel London" which is  "Provocalips 16HR Kiss Proof lip color in shade "Skinny Dipping".
I got this product a few months back and can't tell you how much I'm in love with it.


My Experience:
I was in a searcrh for a perfect nude color and then I came across this provocalips by Rimmel, Love the fact that how beautiful it is. It last on my lips literally for hours which is great. Its a water proof formula and it doesn't transfer at all, doesn't tug or makes my lips dry, one application is enough to cover your entire lip. Although it is a nude color which makes it not as pigmented like the other colors from this range are. If you want an opaque application then  put two layers of it on your lips and you're good to go. I love wearing this shade with a smokey or bronzy eye makeup and I also use it on top of my dark lipstick to lighten up a lil bit, and sometimes use it with different shades to get the desired color. And with its other side lock and seal you can seal any lipstick and trust me it will lasts for hours.

Application:
Exfoliate your lips with a lip scrub and then apply a lip balm for a minute, and then wipe it off with a tissue or towel and use this provocalips over it.

Morphe 35E Eyeshadow palette Review+Swatches

Hello Everyone,

Since everyone is talking about Morphe Brushes palette, so I thought to give them a try and hence today I'm going to review this beautiful palette which is "Morphe 35E".
Want to know more then Scroll down a little bit:


My experience:
I got this palette in shade "35E" which is a satin one, all color in this palette are shimmery/blingy and highly pigmented. In this palette you can get all the champagnes, frosty snow, copper, pinks, and deep mauve colors to play with. This palette is a must have if you are a party person, with this palette you can rock any glamorous look just like that. Love the pigmentation, but I have noticed if you wear these eye shadows without any primer it wouldn't last long.

Some of the shadows falls a lil bit which I'm not a fan of. If you live in Riyadh and  want to buy "Morphe" then check at Taiyaba market near Olaya street, or you can buy this from nectar cosmetics at kingdom mall, they deal in original cosmetics but the thing is they sell this palette quite expensive, so I suggest if you are want to buy any Morphe cosmetics then check out Taiyba market or check some online pages as well.



Application:
If you have extremely oily eyelids then prep your eyes with a eyeshadow base/primer and then put your eyeshadow over it for long lasting effect and without any creases.

  • Eyeshadow falls a lil bit
