Eye makeup for today

Hi friends,
Hope you all are fine. As everyone knows that march is here which means the spring season should be here…but in my city it seems as if the winters are not in a mood to leave :D The sky is all gray here as if the sky has done a light smokey look ;D :D
Anyways leave it, today I’m posting a lovely eye makeup of my sweet sister, to whom you all have been introduced before also ( Remember the lovely bride). This eye makeup will suit heavy dresses for function or festival. Will look nice on Indian sari or Lehnga dress.

Celebrity Makeup 1- Angelina Jolie

Today I saw this picture while searching the net and I had to stop here to see this picture of Angelina Jolie. She has always been one of my favorite actresses in Hollywood. I always admire her makeup and style. I’ve never seen her with too much makeup and this is the fact which I like about her. Her makeup style is always natural and simple but very elegant. I don’t remember seeing her in any picture in which her makeup and style doesn’t suit her. She has done very light natural makeup on her face. I love the makeup which doesn’t show much on our faces but makes our face noticeable too. For a moment, I thought that if I try to copy this look, I’ll need this stuff for it.

Avon Stick concealer- Review & Swatches

Hi beauties,
As you all know that concealer is an essential part of makeup. We all have some spot or blemishes on our faces. Sometime we want to get rid from under eye circles instantly. We apply foundation for it but sometimes it’s not able to conceal the spots and then the concealer is needed. Usually I didn’t use concealer but recently I mentioned some light small spots on my face and I have to use a concealer.

Today I’m going to write about the AVON’s Ideal Shade Concealer Stick which I bought four month ago but hardly used it. My friends always talk about this concealer and love it. Now even I use it sometimes and I must say that it is very nice.

Maybelline Dream Mousse Bronzer- Review & Swatches

I have always adored Maybelline products. Their products do not only have a good quality but also in the limit of a common woman because all products have a reasonable price. I have a lot of Maybelline products and most of them are nice in quality. I particularly love their dream mousse products such as the blushes and now add this Dream Mousse Bronzer to the growing list of my maybelline favorites.

I bought this product two months ago but have used it only once and I’m very satisfied with its result.

Maybelline mousse bronzer-

This bronzer comes in a glass jar which is cute but a little bit bulky to carry out on my purse. The lid of the jar represents the shade of the bronzer. I’m not so sure but it comes in three shades gold copper and bronze. I bought this gold one.

Emma Watson- the new face of Lancome

Sweet, innocent and beautiful Emma Watson has been always one of my favorite actress. When she was a child star, her innocence and great skill of acting attracted me and when she has grown up in a charming lady, I still love her. The innocence of her face is still the same as it was 6-7 years ago. Her simplicity is much more effective than glamor of many actresses. Now her innocence has attracted the beauty brand Lancôme. I’m very happy that she has been announced as the new face of Lancôme. Following the choices of more matures spokes models such as Julia Roberts, opting for Watson to represent its products could hint at brand’s repositioning towards a younger audience. She previously starred in fashion ads for Burberry and has worked together with eco- friendly brand People Tree, has tried to distance herself from her role Hermione Granger in Harry Potter by getting a new pixie haircut.

Wella Biotouch Straight Intensive Mask- Review & photos

Hi lovely readers

I hope you are fine. :) Since the last two days the weather has gone really crazy in my city….it’s getting so cold & rainy and there has been snowfall in the nearby hill stations.

Today I’m not reviewing any cosmetic or skin care product. For a change I’m writing about a hair care product-Wella Biotouch Straight intensive mask.

What Biotouch Straight Intensive Mask claims?

Utilises a Smoothing Complex and jojoba oil to protect against frizz, dryness and damage. Wella Biotouch Straight Intensive Mask nourishes and protects locks, adding moisture and maintaining smoothness. This intensive treatment hydrates and revitalises the structure of smooth or unruly tresses while controlling the volume of the hair. Ideal for use in between salon straightening treatments or if a hair dryer or irons are regularly used at home.

Price: Rs 4oo – 450( $10 approx.)

Pack size: 150mL

Directions for use-

Distribute evenly through your towel-dried hair and gently massage.

Comb through and leave for approximately 5-10 minutes.

Rinse thoroughly.

My own experience with this product:

My sister bought this mask for her because she had straightened up her hair but in spite of taking good care of her hair she felt them dry and even experienced some hair fall. After searching in the stores she chose this one for herself and only after one week, she found a clear difference in her hair. Not only the dryness changed into smoothness but also the hair fall had almost finished. This product makes her hair silky and smooth. In her own words ‘that is one of the best products I have found for my hair type’. She loves this product and now this one has become a essential part of her life. She never forgets to carry out while traveling. I have never straightened my hair so this was not for me but one day I tried it as an experiment and realized why she loves it. After using it my hair became so silky and smooth. I used a very less quantity but the effect was amazing. The shining which i got after using it made me really happy.

Why you should love this product:

I love the smell.

Great if you have color treated hair.

Gives a rich moisture to your dry hair.

It is not heavy, leaves the hair with an incredible softness and shine, and it truly protects.

Very helpful for growing hair.

Protects hair from sun damage.

It is very moisturizing and makes the dry hair feel smooth, soft and bouncy.

The bottle is very nice and very handy for carrying out for traveling.

The price is worth its quality.

Why you should stay away from it.

If your hair is natural silky and haven’t colored, straightened or curled up your hair then no need to use this.

If you don’t want to do any experiment with your hair.

Will I purchase it again? Maybe or maybe not… but as I told this is an essential part of my sister’s life.

Will I recommend it to others?

Of course yes, if you have given any treatment to your hair, you should surly try it.

Rating: 4.75/5

So girls, most of you are fond of coloring or straightening your hair but this can damage your hair so take care of your hair by using good products which can help your hair from any type of damage.

Thanks!! :) :)


The tale of a fairy (Bridal look- EOTD & FOTD)

Once upon a time there was a girl, who lived with her loving family. She had various beautiful dreams in her eyes and wanted to fulfill them. She wanted to do something big and different and for which she worked hard in her studies. Time kept sweeping by & her struggle continued. One day she did what she dreamt; she was selected in her judicial examination and she topped in the Bengal judicial competition. She is now a respected judge and has achieved everything she wanted, name and fame, a beautiful house, a car, deep respect in every eyes…hey are you surprised…or confused…about what I’m writing today…please calm down girls…do you know who she is? She is my sweeeeeeeeeet sister Bushra Adil and we call her Shazi.

She is beautiful, intelligent and very down to earth. Simplicity is everything for her. Last year she got her prince charming and got married in the month of November. Most of you must know that I wrote about her marriage. She has always stayed away from any kind of makeup so when the question of bridal makeup came, she wished that I should do her makeup because she didn’t believe in a beautician’s work. It was my wish also so I did it with love and passion. When she saw herself in the mirror…she was very happy with her look & so was I. In her marriage function every view was on her beautiful look..hey I’m not saying that it was because of was because of her innocent beauty and her simplicity which is very rare in today’s time. So ladies, now you can see it today and don’t forget to give your opinion about this post.

My First EOTD & FOTD after Muharram

Hi lovelies

This is my first look after Muharram and I had promised my readers and friends to show them some FOTD so I’m here with this look. I’m a bit nervous because I did it after a long time. Makeup is a practice game so I hope you’ll ignore some faults if you feel in them.

As you know, I love pink so I chose a light pink shade here. I used LOVE ALPHA eye shadows from KKCenterhk on my eyes and blush on my cheeks. I have used their eye lashes too. Hope you guys like it.

1-This shade is blackish green with light but noticeable shimmers.

Love Alpha eyeshadow palettes- Review and pics

Hi lovely ladies

I’m so happy to receive your love and passion by getting your lovely comments and the mails which you write me. Thanks a lot friends!!

So today I’m writing about some very exciting products of the Love Alpha range from

I got those palettes Saturday afternoon, but due to some reason I couldn’t write the review immediately.

About the website- is a very exciting website. Most of you would be aware about this website by its lovely false lashes which were sent to many bloggers by this website. This website has a huge collection of cosmetics, false eye lashes, hair wigs, nails and a lot of things.


This is one of the ranges of their cosmetics. When they approached me and asked me to choose from this collection’s eye shadows, I chose these two palettes.

The first one is a mini shadow palette with 5 sparkling colors shadows. There is a applicator in it and a mirror at the back of the box.

The second one is a mini kit with 8 sparkling eye shadows and two blushes with the brush and eye shadow applicator as well.


What the website says-

Make Up Set Extremely Portable.

100% New, Never Been Used

Case Is Black, Built In Mirror

Eyeshadow Mini Stick On The Inside Of The Case

Suitable For Make up

Size : 90mm X 50mm X 10mm

LOVE ALPHA EYE SHADOW- M45 -02 in my words-

This is a very cute palette. It comes with 5 shimmer shadows with an applicator in inside and a mirror at the back.

The packaging-

The packaging of this mini palette is very nice. It’s so handy to carry out in my purse. I compared its packaging with some famous brands and find it to be even better than their packaging.


It is good and fully able to blend shadows on my eyes. Of course I need some eye shadow brush with it.

About the shades-


1-This shade is blackish green with light but noticeable shimmers. I can use it for defining my outer corner.

2- This is reddish maroon and very lovely. I can apply it all over my lids and mix with any other light shades as well.

3-This one is a mixture of light brown with a tinch of peach in it. You can use it all over the lid or just as a highlighter.

4- This is my favorite shade from this palette. It is a very pretty tea rose pink shade and very girly. I think every girl will like this shade.

5- This is a sparkling white shade and a very decent, lovely color. It can be used on the brow bones for highlighting them.

What I like about shadows-

All colours are vibrant and bright & at the same time the shimmer is mild so that it can be worn during both day and night [Of course this won’t do well for a formal look]. I am sure it won’t give much of a vibrant look.

Shimmers are noticeable but not too much.

The combination of the five is fabulous. Two dark shades with three light shadows. All of them are gorgeous!!

I didn’t notice any fallout during applying them on my hands.

All shades are highly pigmented even have a buttery texture. They can be wasted if I take them out roughly.

Very cute & handy palette which can be easily carried out in my purse and during traveling.

I’m sure the staying power will be very good coz they stayed on my hand for quite a long time. I applied all the shades on my hand without any base and you can see their pigmentation without a base.

What I don’t like about this palette-

I have only one complaint and that is about the mirror. The mirror is on the back side of the palette.

Sorry about the bad pic :(

It would have been better if it was inside the box. So I need a separate mirror during applying the shadow on my lids.

Rating- 4.75/5

Overall verdict: Overall I can say that I’m highly impressed about the quality of this mini palette. Seeing the cost of this product, it will be really a great steal. All shades are very pretty. If you want them you can check the website and book your order. The shipping timing is very quick. Your can receive your products in a very short time and very safely (in around 15-20 days only)


This is a portable mini makeup kit along with 8 sparkling eye shadows and two cheek blushes.

What the website says-

Make Up Set Extremely Portable.

100% New, Never Been Used

Case Is Black, Built In Mirror

Eye shadow Mini Stick on the Inside of the Case

Suitable For Make Up

Size: 85mm X 55mm X 15mm

ALPHA M176-B in my words- It comes with 8 shadows, two blushes, a mini eye applicator and a tiny cheek brush. All shadows are in shimmers. The blushes are not shimmery at all. Both have a pearl matte finish.


The packaging is really lovely!! Just open up the lid and you’ll find 8 gorgeous eye shadows arranged in two rows. Then just under them slide open two blushes and the applicators in between. The case opens up easily and the blushes also slide out easily.

About the eye shadows-

Top row, L-R

1. A lovely unique shade- mixture of golden and silver with a pearly finish.

2. The perfect golden shade

3. The perfect coppery shade

4. Dark brown shade

Second row L-R

1. A lovely green with a mix of golden( I find it the most unique shade of the palette)

2. Dark green

3. Light coppery shade with very few shimmers(quite similar to the 4th one of the first row just a bit more light)

4. Very dark brown

The blushes-

There are two blushes in this kit with a tiny cheek brush.

Blush shades-

1- This is a natural pink blush with matte finish. It’s quite similar to the Mac VV beauty powder which I have.

2- The second blush is a dark peach shade. My favorite:)

What I like in this kit-

All the eye shadows are highly pigmented with a buttery texture.

These is a nice combination of dark and light shades.

Gold are preferred much so you can get very unique and different gold shades.

The texture is soft and buttery. The same quality as the first palette.

Very perfect for festivals and functions. Some can be used with daily wears too.

Very manageable, not much fallout as I had mentioned, perfect for blending.

Now about the blushes- I love both the shades.

Both are natural and have a satin finish.

The shades look very pretty after blending.

Very pigmented.

No fallout, very manageable.

The texture is quite smooth and pearly.

The blush can last almost all day long on me, especially in winters. In summers it can stay 4-5 hours.

What I don’t like in this makeup kit-

The packaging is nice but very delicate. If handled a bit roughly, it can even break.

There is no mirror provided in this kit so we need a separate one.

All the shades are shimmery whereas in my opinion there should have been one or two matte ones too. But even then the browns are not too shimmery which is a plus point :)

Some of the shades are quite similar in each kit. There should have been some blues and purples too which would have made it a perfect kit.

The applicator for the shadows is too small so quite useless and the same goes for the blush brush too :(

Overall Verdict- Overall I’m very satisfied with this kit. All the shades and blushes are of my choice and are much pigmented. Even without any primer or base they are sooo pigmented then you can imagine how they’ll look on top of a primer. The price too is very low and if you buy them they’ll be like a great gift to you girls.

Will I recommend it- Yes OF COURSE!!! You should surely try it out.

Rating- 4.50/5

In my next post I’ll show you the swatches too so be patient.

So ladies do try and buy these palettes…..or who knows maybe you get them as a gift too by your Valentine!! Happy Valentine’s Day in advanced!!! Will soon be posting many looks with these palettes coz now even Muharram is over :-D

Disclosure: The items in this post were sent to me by the company for consideration. I am not affiliated with the company nor am I being paid to write this post. These are my own honest views about the product.


Street Wear lipgloss- Review & Swatches

If someone calls me a lip colors’ addict I think it’ll be quite right because I have a huge collection of lipstick and lip glosses. There was a time when I was crazy about the lipsticks then this craziness changes and turned out for the lip glosses. Now it has again turned and I’m in love with lipsticks again. Hehe..i think these likes and dislikes’ roller coaster will be going on and on.

Anyways, today I’m writing a short review on my Street Wear lip gloss which I bought around 6 months ago.

Some words about the Brand-

Street Wear’ range of cosmetics-was launched under the great brand of REVLON.

Revlon Colorstay eye liner- review, swatches, photos

I love to apply eyeliner on my eyes but I always hesitated to use pencil eyeliners because I used to think that it doesn’t show much on my eyes but I applied them on my waterline. When I bought Revlon Colorstay eyeliners I learned how to make my eyes attractive without liquid eyeliner. I bought in two shades first in black and other in gray. It’s available in 8 different shades

Sure dry shield anti perspirant Roll on- Review

Hi ladies,

I’m sure you must be busy in your Valentine Day preparations. But as far as I am concerned I’m really frustrated due to frequent power cuts in my city these days. I was really proud of my city coz power cuts were so rare here coz from them not even the Indian capital Delhi was spared but here we all had a great time. But for the past few days I’m really troubled coz of them. I wasn’t able to read my favorite blogger’s posts…sorry guys :( :(

My Colorbar Matte lippie Collection- Review, Swatches & photos

Hi ladies,

Hope you all had a great weekend!! But now a new week’s begun so get back to work again. Isn’t it ? :-D

Anyways today I’m gonna show you my COLORBAR MATTE LIPSTICKS COLLECTION.

I bought these around an year ago coz the shades were really pretty and that too at such a low price. Although the packaging of these lippies has now changed to a round form but I think you can get most of these shades in the new ones too.

Though I usually don’t apply much of lipsticks but I really love collecting lipsticks of every new shade, no matter which brand it is of! But the real fact is that I hardly apply my lippies even when i go outside. Now it’s on you whether you call it a wastage of money or a craze….but I think every human has a craze for sure. Isn’t it?? And so these lipsticks are one of my favorite ones!! :-D

Colorbar products are really good in quality and I love using their lippies and blushes. I have their lipsticks from other range too and whichever lipsticks I have bought till now I never have had any complaints from their lipsticks.In total I have around 10-12 of their lippies. Even their price is really reasonable. So they are perfect for ladies as well as girls too.

Although I have 6 of them from Matte collection but today I’m reviewing only 4 of my favourites. Have a look!!

Price- Rs 200- 220

1. PURE INNOCENCE- A dark reddish( maroonish) brown shade.

In spite of being matte, it’s very moisturizing and doesn’t dry out the lips. The shade is a bit dark but I’ve seen many ladies who love to wear dark brown shade and this one is perfect in that case. Although I haven’t used it much but I really like the look of this shade on applying on the lips. It looks gorgeous on denim dress. Lasting power is fabulous...6-7 hours.

I rate this lipstick 4.25/5.

2. Rock you Baby- A light orangish shade.

This one is also quite moisturizing. The shade is a bit shimmery although of the matte range. It is also very pigmented and moisturizing. Looks really cute after applying on the lips. Lasting power is 5-6 hours…really impressive!!

Rating- 4/5

3. Greek Goddess-

I just love it. It is frosted peach and will look amazing on fairer skin tones. It’s ideal for daily wear. Looks much like golden and a bit shimmery. This is my favorite of all the 6 that I have. Very moisturizing and lasting power is around 5-6 hours.

Rating- 4.25/5

4. Satin Mauve- Light purple shade

Purple lipsticks are one of my favorites and this one is on the top of my list. The shade is light and perfect for daily wear too. You can pair it with any purple liner along with light eyes and you can get a perfect look. Lasting power 5-6 hours.

Rating- 4/5

And there are the swatches-


In the sunlight

So overall I have to say that I’m loving these lippies….I didn’t like the packaging much, kinda bulky one, but now even that has changed and they look perfect!!! There are many other shades available in this range of all choices.

So have you tried any of these matte lipsticks?? If no, go get it just now and you’ll love them <3
