10th Karachi International Book Fair Haul

I have been posting Karachi International Book Fair Hauls for as long as my blog has existed, that is for past two years. Even though due to my unforgiving schedule I haven't been able to get into a decent reading routine, I can still miss a Sephora sale for KIBF. It's a bookworm's heaven and I have been to all of them till date. KIBF is held in December each year and it is GINORMOUS! There are booksellers from all around the region as well as globe! I get most of my books from Paramount and Liberty Books. This time around since my brother was in town, we picked up tons more than what I have been getting for past two years. I won't be showing all of our books because this post will get too long that way, but I will be showing what have gained most hype in the past few months and a couple others. You can however check out more of what I got on my Instagram though that's not all either.

Maybelline New York Baby Lips - Cherry Me | Review and Swatch

Maybelline New York Baby Lips Cherry Me Review and Swatch
Maybelline New York Baby Lips in Cherry Me - 350 PKR*
This post has been long overdue, but I wanted to be completely sure on how I feel about it before my final verdict. Maybelline New York Baby Lips has been around for what seems like forever now. There has been so much hype and hue, mixed opinions, on this product that prior to using I thought this might not be all that great after all.

Baby Lips come in a wide range of flavours, but there were 3 released in Pakistan about a year ago and recently MNY has released a few electro ones too. My pick out of the former 3 has been Cherry Me mainly because I am drawn to red lip products. This one gives a sheer glossy red tint to lips and smells nice and fruity. The lip balm contains botanical extracts from Centella Asiatica, vitamin E, C, B5 and Shea Butter for keeping lips healthy and moisturised. It also has an SPF 20 to protect against sun damage. The packaging is cute and sturdy as the cap fits snugly.

New Year Outfit Idea and Nail Art

Monday, 29 December 2014

New Year is around the corner quite literally and I have gotten into the festive mood only now after my semester finals. While I feel absolutely excited about 2015, I don't think I will be actually going out on New Year this time, but I might be wrong. Nonetheless, I have put together an outfit idea for you guys and a chic night out nail art for which Julep inspired me as part of their 'Deck Your Nails' campaign. Enjoy!

New Year Outfit Idea
Jumpsuit // ASOS
Watch // Olivia Burton
Belt // ASOS
Meryl Heels // Jeffrey Campbell
Earrings // Giovanni D'ercole
Clutch // Addison
For me comfort comes above all and therefore I'd actually prefer a jumpsuit over an evening dress when hanging out with the people I am close to on a new year eve. Navy blue is my formal wear colour and just to sass things up I'd use gold for accessorising. Keeping it simple with a two colour palette, I would pair a gold belt with the jumpsuit for the actual outfit and then throw on a gold watch, a gold box clutch, pointy gold earrings and matching high heels.

If you are a makeup lover then you must have the proper makeup tools for creating different looks. Brush plays very important role in makeup, especially in eye makeup. A good and quality brush helps you to create your desired look quickly and efficiently. MUA is a famous makeup brand with low cost and high-quality products. They have introduced their own brush range. The brushes are made up of soft and good material. Each brush has a unique code with which one can easily find the purpose of each brush e.g: E1, E for EYE. I picked up one of them and today I am reviewing MUA E1 eyeshadow brush. Let’s see what I have to say about it.

Life Updates; Missing, Blues and Cool Subscription

Life Updates: Missing, Blues and Cool Subscription

I usually don't post such life updates on here, but I thought I would because this is my main platform to reach out to my readers rather than social media. I hope you miss me because I miss you all and my blog badly. As you could tell, the last few months of twenty-fourteen got me thrilled more than ever to keep up with my blog and honestly I began to somewhat neglect my academics. Even though I managed to get good grades in mids, I had been running away from tests and all that stress. I feel blue and anxious, but it's high time now as my practicals just ended and finals will begin coming Monday, so I will be away for a while.

Color Studio Professional Haute Nail Polish - Superman Blue | Review and Swatch

Color Studio Professional Haute Nail Polish - Superman Blue | Review and Swatch

Color Studio Professional nail polishes are absolutely amazing for the price. I recently picked up this cobalt blue shade called Superman Blue which looks just as masculine as it sounds and I feel it can be worn all year round. The formula is great and fast drying. The shade is glossy, non-streaky and looks good enough with a single coat but for full opacity two coats are ideal. It lasts on nails for 3-4 days without chipping, but the gloss gradually lessens like it does with most nail polishes. The chunky bottle is sturdy and the applicator is of good quality too.
