NYX Dark Circle Concealer Review and Swatches
NYX Dark Circle Concealer
Working until wee hours and daily sun exposure are the worst things that I put my skin through. Both of these leave me dehydrated and the latter irritates leading to inflammation, patchiness and uneven skin tone. Therefore, I have been forever on a lookout for a product like NYX Dark Circle Concealer which is not too heavy on the pocket and at the same time covers up my intense dark circles and discolourations effectively without being cakey.

How To Keep Your Makeup Organised - 3 Effective Ways

How To Keep Your Makeup Organised

I don't have a huge makeup collection but I do have enough now that it gets difficult to keep track of everything I own. Of course, I want to make sure that I am using the things in my stash from time to time or else they would just collect dust and eventually go bad without getting the love they deserve. In order to do that, I have found three effective ways which prevent my makeup from going to waste.

1. Declutter

This is something that I do every 4 to 5 months by going through all my makeup products and checking what I have not used in a long time. At first, it is a bit tough to let go of some of the things because makeup lovers have sentiments attached to what they buy or as a blogger things that were sent very early on since they symbolise achievement. However, you are nothing more than a hoarder if you don't use what you have and still let it consume space. So, I pass on stuff like blushers and lipsticks that I know my cousins would love and bin stuff like eye pencils and mascaras.

Decluttering is quite satisfying and every time I do this it refreshes my mind as a cluttered stash can be very uninspiring.

Makeup Revolution I Heart Chocolate Palette Review and Swatches

Like I mentioned in yesterday's Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner post that I do not wear eyeshadows on a daily basis, however, Makeup Revolution I Heart Chocolate Wonder Palette is the one that I have had for over a year now and this is what I find myself using a lot for warm toned neutral looks. The brand itself is known for producing affordable knock-offs of high-end makeup products and this one from I ❤ Makeup range is a dupe for Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. I have tried numerous products from Makeup Revolution and I appreciate its quality for the pricing. As much as I would love to try Too Faced too, it is not available in Pakistan and you have to rely on Facebook sellers which also leads to a further hike in prices.

Starting with the packaging of this I Heart Chocolate Palette, I absolutely love the melted, trickling chocolate design and I find it to be cuter than Too Faced. The casing is made out of plastic but it is sturdy and slender enough to be travel-friendly.  The palette contains 16 eyeshadows, out of which 6 shades are matte and the rest are shimmery with a satin finish but some have noticeable glitter particles too. Since the shades are mostly neutral, this is the only palette I have travelled with in the past but I just wish it had a black as well because then this would have been perfect.
