NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska

Hello Gorgeous Readers! I believe you have been well Today you will read my review of NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. After reading a lot of good reviews about this one I asked my relative to get me one in shade named Alaska from US. 

Product Claim:

“Your skin – almost bare, but better. This advanced, oil-free formula
provides a translucent veil of color and sun protection while helping to
reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots in just four
weeks. Infused with lush, naturally derived botanicals and ingredients
to immediately helps thirsty skin feel hydrated. Kopara from French
Polynesia and mineral rich seawater revive and re-mineralize skin for a
softer, smoother, and brighter natural glow. Skin is transported.”

  My Experience:

I love how classy the packaging is with a flip cap which makes this tube travel friendly.  NARS Pure Radiant Tinted moisturizer provides sheer coverage to my skin with a dewy finish. The consistency of moisturizer is little runny, I like how it blurs out imperfections and it fells very light weight on skin.  Pure Radient tinted moisturizer blends easily and smells good too, keep in mind if you are looking for heavy coverage then this product is not for you.  The product is amazing it moisturizes wonderfully stays put for good period of time and it never broke me out.  I first used this one in summers it felt a bit oily on my face( I have normal to oily skin), I kept it aside now I have started using it again and I am happy that I didn’t give this one. I still get shiny face with this one but I set it with pressed powder. 
 Its hell expensive come with the price tag of $42 for 50ml tube from SEPHORA and comes in twelve different shades. 

Here is  how it wears on me, upper picture without the application of NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and the lower one after application. You can see how sheer coverage it provides and how glow-y it is.

Sabaya Moisture Lip Color in Shade 12

Hello Gorgeous Readers! 
I hope you must have enjoyed your Eid, today’s Review is about my New Sabaya Moisture Lip Color and I have been using it since last month and I love how it look on my lips. 

Product Description 

This soft, silky lipstick glides on easily while providing gorgeous color and moisture. This Semi matte lipstick protects your lips at the same time with SPF 15. 
Why I Love it?
Sabaya Moisture Lip Color comes in a gorgeous decent looking tube but the sad part is that these lip shades are nameless I have mine in shade number 12 which is Nude Baige shade. There is color indication at the bottom of the lipstick tube and the color you see outside you get the same color inside, that’s helpful.  The texture of Sabaya Moisture Lip Color is creamy and as claimed it glides on effortlessly. Feels creamy and provides moisture to my lips. The lipstick is pigment packed you need a swipe or two and your look is complete.
The lasting time of this moisture lip color is just  satisfactory it stays put on my lips for not more than two hours & fades away with eating and drinking. Sabaya Moisture Lip Color is a wonderful lip product highly recommended if you like creamy textured lip products, there is nothing complain-able about it I just wish it was properly named.   

  This Lip shade comes with the price tag of AED/ SAR 62 and its available in 22 different shades , can be purchased from all Mikyajy stores and site.

Sweet Lemon Body Butter by The Body Shop!

The Body Shop Sweet Lemon Body Butter

Hello Gorgeous Readers finally we have got good weather in Karachi and Today you will read a review of The Body Shop Body Butter in
Sweet Lemon. I have got mine in a 50ml tub which was a part of beautiful set I
got as a gift from a friend and if it were not for that, I would have never
tried it.  
 Here is what The Body Shop Claims:

This rich and creamy Body Butter is a feast for
the skin. It melts straight in to leave skin feeling soft and smooth.
It contains Community Fair Trade shea butter and smells of fresh lemon.
  • Great for normal to dry skin
  • Fresh lemon scent
 Just like all other Body Butters this one also comes in a
cute yellow colored tub I have mine in a small size which makes it perfect for traveling. The fragrance of Sweet Lemon body butter is to die for
which lingers for little time & does not last long. As far as the texture of this
body butter is concerned it has got thick consistency & it takes a little while to get absorbed into skin but feels extremely light & keeps my skin nicely moisturized. It is
non sticky, does not feel greasy at all making it suitable for summers as well.
If you plan to buy it you
will only get 200ml tub for PKR 1790  at The Body
Shop Pakistan Outlet (I have checked) no mini tubs of Sweet Lemon Body Butter are available
and this 50ml tub is a part of limited edition set. There is nothing complain
able about  this body butter but the fact
that it’s too expensive.

Excel Paris Matte Lip Creams review

EXCEL Paris Matte lip creams
 I have seen these gorgeous little tubes in bold and striking
colors on every counter of local cosmetic shops and these are named Excel
Paris Matte Lip Creams. I didn’t buy these but my sister couldn’t resist and
she purchased these two gorgeous shades despite of their beautiful color she couldn’t wear these. I borrowed these Lip Creams from her so I may write a review for
you guys before tossing these into a bin.

Excel Paris matte lip creams are insanely pigmented and claims to
stay put for 48 Hours. I wonder why anyone would want a lipstick to stay put
for 48 hours & these are also enriched with Vitamin E and A.  I know the colors are so pretty even the tube
is cute with a doe footed applicator. The formula is creamy but dries up too
quickly & gives no time for blending and settles into fine lines which give
really bad look.  It stays put for ages
and refuses to budge from your lips I tried to remove it with everything wipes,
water, oil, cleanser, Bioderma but it didn’t come off & left behind a horrible satin.  No wonder the
colors are gorgeous but I won’t recommend you to buy these as there are
no ingredients written on the tube and it does not even come in a package.  If you still wanna try and use it
apply a lot of lip balm before using these Lip Creams these are easily available in market for PKR 150 to 200.

Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick

Lancome L’Absolu Rouge #6 Rose Nu
 Hello Readers! 
Today you will read a review of my new favorite lip color for day time L’Absolu Rouge in Rose Nu by Lancome. I won this mini sized lipstick in a giveaway from I swear, I can not Thank You enough Shaz lets get on with the review.
Product Description:
Wrap your lips in rich, satiny color with this deeply replenishing
lipstick. Infused with moisture-boosting Pro-Xylane™, lips stay moist,
soft and comfortable for up to 8 hours. Antioxidant-rich Vitamin E helps
keep lips safe from environmental aggressors, so they’ll look and feel
healthier day after day. The stay true color won’t feather, flake or
fade, so your pout will always look picture-perfect.
Why I love it:
I love the elegant packaging of the lipstick the black tube and tiny Lancome Rose Icon printed on the top of the cap. The formula of  L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick is extremely moisturizing, very comfortable to wear as it glides on smoothly and feels very light on lips. Its very sheer as you may see in the last picture hence its perfect for a day time wear(in my preference). The wear time is not something extraordinary like 8 hours as claimed but L’Absolu Rouge lasted for good three hours on my lips. This Lipstick does not contain any specific fragrance to it plus when applied it does not flake or feather. The good part is that it has got SPF 12 and Pro-Xylane which is known to boost the moisture of your lips. As its extremely expensive I don’t see myself purchasing this one again I may buy it in different color though as I like this lipstick a lot, there is nothing really complainable except for the lasting time I really wish it lasted a few more hours on me. 
It comes with the prize tag of $29 too expensive for me, you can check out the details here. Let me know of you have tried this one.

Minx Over The Top Mascara!

Hello Gorgeous Readers!!
I am sure you all are gonna agree with me that Long curled lashes enhances the beauty of eyes. Today I am going to review a newly launched  Mascara by Mikyajy named Minx Over The Top Three in One Mascara.  I have mine in color named  Black Panther.
Lets get on with the review.
Minx Over the Top Mascara is packed in a usual mascara tube though the packaging is gorgeous Hats off to Mikyajy for Wonderful Girly packaging. This Mascara gives my lashes intense dramatic black color.  I usually don’t wear volumizing mascaras I prefer lengthening & curling ones but with this mascara I saw a visible difference in the volume & curl of my lashes. What I love about this mascara is even after two to three coats my
lashes remain soft  plus it does not smudge. The mascara is easy to take off its not waterproof.  I like the brush it offers long and short bristles
which evenly cover and coat lashes from every corner. The formula of this mascara is little runny most of the time I keep the wand out from the tube before usage, just to dry it a bit. 
If I apply it directly it takes ages to get dry from my lashes.
 All in all this mascara does a good job of both curling and volumising my lashes but here is the downfall it sticks my lashes together if not applied with care. 
 If you want one for yourself you can check out Mikyajy counters all across GCC or Mikyajy’s Website. Tell me have you tried this one?
