Makeup Revolution Amazing Lipstick in Dusky | Review and Swatch

Makeup Revolution, the brand that gained popularity very quickly and churns out new pieces ever so often, finally hit Pakistan a short while ago on Within a couple of hours of its launch, I placed a small order as I longed to try this brand out for quite a while now and couldn't contain my excitement. This was also my first time shopping from and I'm glad to report that my order was handled smoothly. I received email updates on every step, from processing to packaging and dispatching. In addition to that I also got a confirmation call for my order since I was a new customer and they even called before delivery to make sure the parcel could be received. My order was delivered within 2 working days and the first thing from Makeup Revolution that I ever tried was this lipstick that I am reviewing today.

Rimmel London Volume Flash Scandal Eyes Mascara | Review and Swatches

Rimmel mascaras have been my all time favourites. I have always loved their formula, consistency and the fact that they have never dried up on me. My first mascara, Extra Super Lash, was from Rimmel and till date it is one of the best mascaras I have ever tried under such an affordable price tag (almost half of other drugstore mascaras and even Scandal Eyes!). So, when I ran out of my last Rimmel mascara, Scandal Eyes was their latest offering. Therefore, I picked one up but in the waterproof version for it was priced equal to the regular one and it was about time I gave waterproof mascaras a whirl.

Pond's White Beauty Daily Spot-less Lightening Cream

Pond's White Beauty Daily Spot-less Lightening Cream - 220 PKR*
I have a combination/dry skin type and my main skin concern has always been dry patches which I have been successfully battling for over past six months with some major changes in my skin care routine. However, the stubborn discoloration that dry patches leave behind just gets worse with sun exposure. Sun has always been more damaging to my skin than an average person, resulting in a very sensitive skin type and long term exposure just aggregates dryness and blotchiness on my skin. Back in the school days my face and neck never matched my body at all, by being always 5-6 shades darker (Not exaggerating at all, imagine how terrible that is!). Now that my sun exposure has considerably reduced, the shade still varies between 3-4 shades darker than my actual complexion. I am not a fairness freak, but I have never been able to achieve a balance between my overall complexion. The closest I get is only during summer vacations when I stay at home for a month or two. The difference even then remains of 2-3 shades.
