Himalaya Herbals Walnut Scrub Review

I bought Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub only because my local supermarket did not have either Freeman or St.Ives in stock at that time. Even though, I have always heard positive things about this brand, I don't seem to recall trying anything from their range before. So this was probably my first time and more of a temporary replacement as I needed to get a scrub urgently. The tube itself seemed good quality and easy to dispense product out of.

Daraz Haul and Recent Shopping Experience

Wednesday, 21 January 2015

Generation Red Cotton Button Style Kurti - 1398 PKR*
5 Pcs Nail Art Stamping Set - 250 PKR*
Essence Kajal Pencil Teddy 08 - 195 PKR*
I had only shopped from Daraz once back in the day when it was still new and my experience at that time was fairly good. When I was again recently given the chance to redeem a voucher at Daraz in return for a post, I accepted. Now while I am pretty happy to see that Daraz has started stocking more brands and even makeup, there are minor website glitches I faced while surfing. Also, I feel the service has gone down a bit. I had some payment issues initially as my parcels were sent in two partial units. Then I wanted to return the kurta I got earlier but their phone line was unresponsive. However, their email support is good, they patiently replied to all my queries and handled the matter smoothly. I was compensated and the deliveries were all on time.

Rimmel Stay Blushed Liquid Cheek Tint Apricot Glow | Review and Swatches

Rimmel Stay Blushed Liquid Cheek Tint 005 Apricot Glow Review and Swatches

I had been eyeing Rimmel Stay Blushed Liquid Cheek Tints, but I wasn't aware they were being sold here until I accidentally discovered them in Imtiaz Supermarket. I am a huge fan of liquid and cream products because I have dry skin but also they are easier to work with and look natural in comparison to powder products. So when I saw these, I went a little crazy and soon had swatches all over me. These come in a total of 5 shades but, unfortunately, 004 Sunkissed Cherry, wasn't there on the counter or I would have definitely picked that since I gravitate towards coral red shades. So, I settled for 005 Apricot Glow as it looked nice too but honestly they all seemed pretty and I would love to collect them all.

Favourite Red - MAC Ruby Woo | Review and Swatches

Ruby Woo by MAC

I have always been drawn to reds when it comes to lipsticks but since I was always a shy lipstick wearer I hardly ever dared wearing red and when I did, it didn't look all that great. After spending over two years blogging, I have learned how lipsticks work, yet I got Ruby Woo pretty much on a whim. I wasn't sure if I would really like it or reach out for it all that much, but this is such a popular shade from MAC that I had to get it.

RTW Creation Store and Bag Review

RTW Creation Store and Bag Review

I actually came across RTW Creation a few months back on facebook and had adored the designs they do. However, I forgot the name and when I needed to get something for the recent Fashion Pakistan Week to go with my outfit, I was in a bit of a frenzy for being the last minute shopper. Thanks to Sherbano Khattak of From The Other Side of Mirror for referring to them and I was glad to re-discover the brand. Now I really wish I could have bought one of everything as it all seemed great, but I ended up picking this Summer Bag which I would describe as a cross between a bag and a clutch. Most of RTW Creation designs are Aztec prints which can pass for semi-formal to casual/daytime looks.
