June Favourites '15

June Favourites

Another month went by and I should have been blogging more but thanks to KE and PTCL, nothing is as easy as it seems. Anyways, there are only a few things that I have been loving this month and I have already talked about most of them on the blog so this post would be relatively short.

1. Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art - Topaz Twinkle*

I love how convenient this cream eyeshadow is and how pretty it looks on the eyes. You can find my in-depth review on it that I posted this month only along with a glam makeup look.

My Ride or Die Eyeshadow Palette

Glamorous Face USA palette

I have owned Glamorous Face USA palette for a long time now, in fact, it was one of my first personal palettes, but I never blogged about it because perhaps everybody and their mums already own it. It is one of those palettes that everyone in Pakistan, from beginners to professionals depend upon as an all-rounder before dappling into anything more specific. The palette contains a total of 96 eyeshadows, out of which 48 are matte and 48 are shimmery with a great shade range for every occasion. The best part still is that it is insanely affordable. I bought mine for 1100 PKR from Naheed a couple years back and I think you can still get it in the same price range.

My Perfect Day (Competition Time!)

Rollerblades

My perfect day begins at 11 AM with some in bed scrolling down my social media feed on the phone. Once I am out of bed, I do some sort of exercise, to wake my system up and also because it is healthy. Usually, I like doing cardio, but if the weather is good and I have company, skating around is much more fun. After that, I jump right in for a wash to actually start my day, feeling fresh. I am much more organized if I follow this order rather than taking a shower later in the day. By 12 PM, I eat a bowl (read: huge mug) of my current favourite cereal, Special K, and this is when my mom says, ‘This is not a Kellogs time!’, but I have to have lunch by 2:30 anyway with dad so I still stick to it.

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Lotion Review

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Lotion Review

I love The Body Shop for its skin care range because it is effective and comes in unique as well as luxurious scents. Since my mom is a The Body Shop fan too, this mother's day I included this Fuji Green Tea body lotion in her gift. When I bought this it was new in stores and I was sold at the first whiff. Whole of Fuji Green Tea range smells absolutely refreshing and the scent is gender neutral so it makes a safe choice for everyone.

Salt Secret - A Project by Hub Salt

Salt Secret - A Project by Hub Salt

Last Thursday I had an opportunity to try out Salt Therapy at the Salt Secret, which is a project by Hub Salt. Now, I know most of you guys must be wondering what salt therapy exactly is and I was amazed too to find out about it. Basically, salt therapy is an ancient Greek treatment for various respiratory diseases including asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, cold/flu, cough and skin ailments like eczema and other such allergies. In addition to these it also improves metabolism and helps in giving up on addictive habits.

Eye of Horus is an Austrailian cosmetic brand that as the name suggests is inspired by ancient Egypt. They generously sent me a box full of their eye makeup products a while ago and today I am reviewing the Eye of Horus Liquid Define Liner. I have mentioned it in the past that ever since I have tried eyeliner pens, I have been hooked to them. They are speedy, easy to work with and therefore I have been reaching out for this liquid define pen so often lately.

Surprise Makeup Box Giveaway (CLOSED)


First of all, Ramadan Mubarak, butterflies! I wish you a blessed month ahead.

Now, during my exams I hit a couple of minor milestones on my social media, particularly Instagram and Twitter, so I wanted to do a small giveaway. Prior to my last giveaway, I had asked for your input and some of my readers suggested they wanted to get a surprise goodie. At that time, it wasn't possible but I do take your feedback seriously and therefore, this time I am giving away a box, filled with makeup goodies that will be kept hidden until the winner receives this Surprise Makeup Box!

My semester exams finally ended this Monday after 25 tiring days and this means you will be seeing more of me on the blog now. YAY! So, in order to celebrate my birthday that recently passed amidst exams, I took my friends out today for a little treat. We went for breakfast to Dera at Boat Basin since we all had been craving the infamous Chicken Cheese Paratha and basically a hang out like old times. Following our meal, we headed to the sea view to soak the sun and water our Karachi beach has to offer. I must say I have never seen the place as uncrowded and serene as it was today, but perhaps we were there quite early in the day.

The star of the show for this look is the Revlon Photoready Eye Art in Topaz Twinkle. As some of you guys know, it was my birthday on 4th June, and even though I couldn't really celebrate on the day due to my ongoing finals, sticking to the yearly ritual, I chose to wear this glittery glamorous eye look for the family dinner. Revlon has a total of 10 Photoready Eye Art sticks and when I saw this for the first time, it instantly reminded me of their similar looking dual ended nail art polishes. I got the shade Topaz Twinkle which is a beautiful bronze cream eyeshadow with fine bronze glitter, that looks light gold on lids, to go over the top. The shade itself is pretty "safe" and would go with a lot of outfits. You can totally wear the cream eyeshadow on its own or glam the look like I did with the glitter that comes with it.
