I am wearing Mint Apple By Sinful Colors. This Nail Polish is Love at first site.It is Soft pearly mint green color,I love how it reflects in sunlight. I have a lot of mint green polishes from different brands but all of them are cream finishes this one has crushed amazing Pearly finish and it looks perfect on my skin tone I am NC-20 in MAC if your wondering :).

I applied 2 coats without any base-coat or top coat,I like how it dries up pretty quickly and the application is very smooth.Two coats are pretty opaque for me.

Maybelline's Dream Bouncy Blush In Candy Coral--REVIEW & SWATCH

Hey Guys!

Today i am reviewing Maybelline's Dream bouncy blush in Candy Coral LINK!. I have seen these blushes a lot on YouTube and i have heard a lot of mixed reviews about this product. People either love it or hate it.I got mine from Walgreens for 7.99$. As far as i know these are not yet available in Pakistan but i could be wrong. if you guys know of a place then please share it with us in the comment below.

Maybelline's Dream Bouncy Blush's unique bouncy texture gives you the freshest flush ever! The revolutionary powder-gel formula is lightweight like a powder, yet it melts seamlessly into skin like a cream, for a sheer wash of bouncy-fresh color that lasts!

For the most natural look, use fingertips to apply one layer of blush to apples of cheeks in a circular motion. For more intense color, continue to apply additional layers.

My Thoughts:

They have 10 shades in these blushes and i have been loving everything coral lately so i picked candy coral for myself. I just got one color because i was not sure if i would like it or not. The packaging is just alright.I like the fact that it has a clear top so you don't have to turn and see the label every time you want to apply it.The texture is weirdly cool. You can press the surface and you'll see a dent  from your finger, but then after you smooth it with your finger it bounces back.The texture is very close to play-do.

I like this product. It's different with the mousse like creamy texture but goes on as easy as a powder.I apply it with my fingers.The color candy coral is not very pigmented as you guys can see in the picture but it gives my cheeks a very nice flush of color for a natural look and is not very bright.Candy coral is a very beautiful everyday blush color.I have been using this blush on and off for the last 1 month with BB Cream and i have been liking it a lot the color reminds me of ELF's Peachy Keen Blush but lighter LINK!. I love how it photographs in the sunlight.You have to use your fingers with applying this blush. The staying power of this blush is 3 to 5 hours - not very impressive,But you can reapply it whenever you want with your fingers. I love that you can easily build far more intensity and these blushes are easy to blend. I would certainly consider trying additional shades in the future, but only if I caught them on sale and I think I would only try the other darker shades in the range.

You Might Like It If:

You want a light natural cream blush.
You have no problem applying it with your fingers.

You Might Not Like It If:

You want your blush to last long
If you have darker skin tone.

REVIEW: Organix Renewing Moroccan Aragan Oil Conditioner

Hey Guys!

Sorry i have been MIA lately. I was a little sick but now i am back with a review so lets get into it.. I have normal to dry hair and i have always tried to use hair products that make my hair voluminous and moisturized.  Last month i ran out of my Macadamia Deep Repair Masque which i used as a Conditioner( which by the way smells heavenly) so i decided to try a new one from the drugstore to see if i can get the same moisturizing effect with less money.
So about three weeks ago i picked up this Organix Renewing Moroccan Aragan Oil Conditioner  from CVS.

What Organix Claims:
A precious blend of Moroccan argan oil which instantly penetrates the hair shaft restoring shine and softness while strengthening. Derived from the southwest region of Morocco, argan oil protects from styling heat and UV damage while creating soft, seductive, silky perfection. Paraben free.If s the perfect indulgence for soft, seductive, silky perfection,This exotic precious blend of Moroccan argan oil penetrates, moisturizes, renews and creates softness and strength while protecting your hair from harmful styling heat and UV damage as it gives you smooth, sexy tresses.This rare formula has a centuries-old history of providing natural vitamin E and antioxidants while renewing your hair's cell structure, sealing in shine, and creating lush softness. Organix bottles are Eco friendly, manufactured from materials containing recycled post-consumer resin.Not tested on animals.

 After shampooing, apply Organix Conditioner generously to hair, working through to ends. Wait 3-5 minutes. Rinse hair thoroughly.

My Thoughts:
I was so excited to try this conditioner because i have heard so many positive things about morocon aragon oil and how it repairs your hair and makes it smooth and silky. So i got mine from CVS link LINK! It costs 7.99$ for a full bottle but i got the travel size for 2.99$ and i am really glad that i didn't buy the full bottle because i have been using this conditioner for the past 2 weeks and unfortunately this is the worst conditioner i have ever used, it's  even worse than the Revlon Flex One. It has a very nice scent but the consistency of this conditioner is very watery and not thick like a normal conditioner. It wont coat your hair very well and my hair started to fall out. I usually take a shower in the night and when i touched my hair in the morning it felt very dry,crunchy and lifeless.Over all this product is a total fail and it didn't do anything that it claims it will. I will never repurchase it again.

REVIEW: Garnier Pure Pimple Control Pen

What Garnier Claims:
Is Garnier Pure pimple control pen right for me? Yes, if your skin is prone to pimples and if you are looking for an effective and targeted action.Works on the pimple from the 1st application.

How is it different?
Garnier Pure pimple control pen has been specifically designed to work on pimples from their first appearance and to ensure you recover pure, clear skin as soon as possible. It comes in a convenient, small tube you can carry around wherever you go.

How does it work?
Its gel formula covers and isolates the pimple, diffusing its active ingredients for a complete action.
As astringent agent to dry the pimple.
Salicylic acid to purify deep down where the pimple starts.

My Thoughts:
I have oily to combination skin and i have been using this product for a few years.It won’t work well for many people who have a lot of pimples or a severe acne problem, but it works fine for my skin type. I use this pen directly on the pimple as soon as it appears and keep reapplying it until the pimple disappears. The gel feels very soothing on my skin and reduces the redness and the size of the pimple.I find Garnier's Skin products very mild and they work really well for my skin type.My brother has very sensitive skin and it works really well for him too. One thing i don't like about this product is that i have to peel off the dried gel from the pimple before reapplying. sometimes its not a pleasant thing to do. Other than that i am very happy with this gel and i have recommended it to a lot of people.
I want to add few things here from Garnier
Do not share the tube.
Refrain from touching the nozzle.
Do not apply the product with your fingers.
I got mine from Al-Fatah Pakistan and a lot of other stores also carry this product,but if you live in the States you can buy it from Ebay!. I would definitely repurchase it and would recommend it to others as well. This product is very useful and very handy


(1)It works really well on all skin types
(2)The consistency is perfect, not runny at all.
(3)It dries out the pimple without leaving a scar.
(4)It works way better if you apply it right after your discover the pimple.


(1)It has a really chemical smell.
(2)You have to scrub to remove the dried gel before reapplying.
(3)You cant see the product in the tube.
(4)It tingles for a few seconds.(Some people don't like it but for me its a plus)

"Easy Going" by Sinful Colors! Absolutely gorgeous milky peachy pink with a strong white undertone to it. One of those classic, nude shades that is appropriate for any event in life, goes on beautifully, and lasts. I love the opaqueness of it. Can't say enough good things about this polish! I need two coats to make it work for me. I am absolutely in love with this color! I am wearing it on my nails right now and love it,not streaky in my opinion and goes on smoothly. It is a perfect girly classy color in my opinion. It's a dupe for one of my all-time favorite polishes Essie "Fiji". I got mine from Walgreen for 1.99 $ LINK! You cannot beat the price for sinful Colors polish :)

REVIEW & SWATCH: Revlon Color Stay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Silhoutte

Hey Guys!

Today i am reviewing Revlon Color stay Ultimate Suede lipstick.The Color i have is called Silhouette and it is a very pinkish natural color. I got mine from ULTA for 9.99$.

What Revlon Claims:

- Instant Moisture
- All-day Color
- Shea butter, Aloe
- Soft suede finish
- Available in 20 shades

My Opinion:

I Like the color a lot and Revlon is one of my favorite brands. This lipstick feels very velvety on the lips.It goes a lot lighter than i anticipated it to go on. I have to put on a lot of product it seems to be more build-able but i like the finish. It's  not matte and not shiny, its actually kind of a velvety Suede like it claims .
It doesn't say how many hours its supposed to last but it lasts me 6 to 7 hours and it is not transferable after the first hour.It sinks into your lips and the finish changes to slightly matte but it is not dry at all. My lips felt moisturized throughout the day. The shade i got is almost the same as my lip color, as you guys can see in the swatch.I would definitely purchase the other colors now.I would definitely recommend it.You guys should try it yourself .

You might like it if..

You want non transferable color.
You want your lipstick to last long.
You don't want intense color.
You want your lipstick to be  moisturizing.

You might not like it if...

You want a dark color just like the tube.
You want SPF in your lipstick.
You Prefer shiny finish.

My Rating 5 out of 5.
