Fashion Pakistan Week A/W 2014

This week has been the craziest this year after the wedding season back in Aug/Sep, because I had to meet numerous academic deadlines, run last minute errands and above all attend Fashion Pakistan Week A/W 2014. Since this was my first fashion week that I could attend, I was pretty thrilled but a bit taken aback by the lack of punctuality. There was a ton of eye candy and I did spot many summer shades. While some designers cleverly incorporated S/S hues and trends, others could have been more thoughtful. Nonetheless, I would congratulate the FPW Team and all the designers for making the event huge and bringing their ideas to life.

Millennial:

As mentioned in my previous FPW post, before the actual shows a Millennial show was held in which new designers displayed their talent.

Sigma Fall Softly Collection
Sigma Beauty Fall Softly Collection*
This fall Sigma Beauty went out of the way and came out with a gorgeous collection that reminds me of some Beverly Hills high school hottie. Featuring cool toned pastels and roasted hues, unlike the mainstream berry shades, it has been aptly named ‘Fall Softly’. The collection comprises of four blushes, an eye shadow palette, three lip vexes, and released for the first time, three lip bases. There’s something for all skin tones in the Fall Softly range which makes it even more amazing.

Color Studio Kohl Addict Black Kajal | Review and Swatches

Color Studio Kohl Addict Black Kajal Review and Swatches
Color Studio Kohl Addict Black Kajal - 299 PKR*
The Color Studio Kohl Addict Black Kajal was introduced to us exactly two weeks back from now at its launch along with some other new CSP releases at Cafe Forty4. I have worn Kajal in my waterline for as long as I can remember since its a traditional makeup item. However, over the past year I almost stopped wearing it at all as I just didn't have one that would not smudge. Now I am well aware that there are a handful of Kajal pencils out there which claim to be waterproof and smudge resistant, but Kajal is such a basic thing that I always forget to pick one. So when I got Kohl Addict in my Color Studio goodie box, I was pretty thrilled to bring back Kajal in my life.

Pond's White Beauty BB Cream | Review and Swatches

Pond's White Beauty BB Cream Review and Swatches

I got on to the BB cream bandwagon mainly because I did not want to waste my expensive foundations on daily wear. Plus BB creams are a much toned down version of foundations with added benefits which make them all the more ideal for everyday use. So, not too long ago I shared my unfortunate experience with the Etude House BB Bright Cream, which if you have been sticking around lately know how I have been utilizing. Anyway, like before I did consider Garnier but after seeing it on girls around me, getting an unhappy opinion from my cousin and swatching it in the store (looked ashy), I decided to let it pass yet again. That brought me to the only other easily available and much loved option; Pond's White Beauty BB Cream.
