Sweet Touch England Glam 'N' Shine - 501 Bronzing Natural Review and Swatches
Sweet Touch England Glam 'N' Shine: 501 Bronzing Natural - 910 PKR*
Sweet Touch England Glam 'N' Shine is a versatile range of highlighting blushers available in eight shimmering shades. The shade that I got is called 501 Bronzing Natural which is a very pretty shimmer infused bronzing shade, as the name suggests, to add a healthy summer glow to the skin. It comes in a sturdy silver pan with a whooping 28 grams of product. This swirly, marble blush is a combination of mud brown and an iridescent white highlight shade with warm undertones altogether. On swatching it appears coppery while it blends out as a warm peachy shade, much lighter and lesser intimidating than how it appears in the pan. Bronzing Natural has little fallouts but nothing crazy. It is fairly pigmented, but it blends out very easily, so does require a little build up on my own complexion. It will work great for fair to medium olive/warm skin tones and would be ideal for somebody who has a light tan. However, this shade wouldn't really show up on darker skin tones.

Maybelline New York Clear Smooth All In One Shine Free Cake Powder Review & Swatches
Maybelline New York Clear Smooth All In One Shine Free Cake Powder - 250 PKR*
(Natural Lighting) 
Maybelline New York Clear Smooth All In One Shine Free Cake Powder comes in two different compact sizes. One is rectangular and contains 9 grams of the product while other is its round mini edition which contains 3.5 grams. Today I'm reviewing the latter, which is called a 'To-Go' version since it's easy to carry around even in the smallest of purses! The simplistic looking lilac pink plastic compact, which reminds me of toy makeup, does not only occupy little space but is also sturdy. Though, it has a tiny mirror which could have been bigger in diameter to fit in the whole lid of the compact so that one could actually see their face, and a small sponge which I do not find very useful either since it's too dense and rubbery for my liking and barely deposits any product on the skin, so I use a powder brush with it.

A Beauty Blogger's Nutcase

Mr. Nutcase Customized Phone Cover

I recently had the opportunity of getting a custom designed phone case from Mr. Nutcase which I was very happy about as I love my gadgets and had been looking for a stylish cover for my Lumia. Mr. Nutcase is a UK based website which offers a variety of phone cases to choose from or you can always design one yourself on their website by uploading your own photos, which can also be directly uploaded from Facebook and Instagram.

Since I had the option of customising my own cover, being a beauty blogger I was looking for something along the line that would match my interest. When it comes to getting all dolled up, my favourite part is to spritz on perfume. Therefore, I started looking for a perfume illustration and that is when I came across Melissa Bailey's 'Vera Wang: Princess' illustration! It's just so pretty that I instantly knew this is exactly what I needed on my phone cover. Melissa Bailey is a very talented freelance illustrator from UK who has numerous big names as part of her clientele. I had her permission to use this image which was very kind of her. Check out her Blog and Facebook for more amazing work and be sure to show some love! :)

Monday, 7 July 2014


Look who has been a bit out and about lately. On 26th June 2014, there was a Blog Fest held at Scentsation, Dolmen Mall Clifton, in which numerous Karachi Bloggers were invited and it was lovely meeting so many of them for the first time. The PR of the event was managed by Take II and the CEO of Take II, Tehmina Khalid was also present there herself. Initially, we were given the chance to explore the shop, swatch products and talk about our personal taste. Then Zarmina Khilji (Business Development Head) and Mohsin Feroze (Chief Executive Multitech) told us more about Scentsation and their journey in moving it up in the corporate world of Pakistan.

An Evening at the Raintree Spa

Thursday, 3 July 2014


What's better than a pamper-eve right after a busy month of exams?! Last week, I had a spa date at Raintree Spa along with some of the Pakistani Beauty Blogging Community (PBBC) lovelies. I have been to Raintree before, as the very first Karachi Blogger's meetup that I had attended back in August, was also held there, and I must say that I fell head over heels in love with the place as soon as I entered. It's covered in plants with the walkway to the actual building paved with pebbles and has a fountain on right hand side which makes the spa look even more exotic than it sounds.

Maybelline New York Clear Smooth All in One Cake Powder To Go Version Launch At Savor Boat Crew

Wednesday, 2 July 2014


After being locked up in my study-room with piles of notes for almost a month, when Maybelline New York invited us to their recent launch event at the Savor Boat Crew, Karachi, I knew I had to go! The event took place on 20th June 2014, which was just a day before my last final exam, but only a look at the invitation card and reading the words like 'dockyard' and 'cruise' tempted me so much that I had to ditch the books for good.
