November thoughts

I didn’t post anything on my blog this weekend. A lot has been on my mind lately and I’m still trying to figure out some stuff. I am wondering if I should continue my blog and try to write one post a week or just opt for a blogging hiatus for a while.

I am pondering over these decisions while i can sense the vibrations of heavy machinery coming from the ground from some distance away. A lot of people are hard at work after midnight working day and night to build the road . Its one of the busiest roads in my city. Let’s get on with the blog post.

July favourites!!

these two products are worth trying…

1. Maybelline New York Dream fresh BB cream

2. Bioderma makeup removing micelle solution

bioderma

These products have very quickly become two of my favourite products. Maybelline dream fresh BB cream is simply amazing. Super moisturizing, comes in a variety of shades, moderate coverage, doesn’t make your skin look oily and doesn’t feel heavy on skin. Highly recommended for use in this humid summer weather 🙂

Bioderma is absolutely wonderful when it comes to removing eye makeup and removes makeup without the need to rub your eyes and neither does it make the skin oily or overdry. Very effective for removing mascara.

I am thinking of doing a review about them soon in shaa Allah..

do you have any products that are your favourite? Let me know in the comments 🙂

Maybelline Falsies Volume Express Mascara!!

So as my first post i thought i should post about a product i love..

maybelline falsies 1maybelline falsies 2

I like tanya burr’s tutorials on youtube and she absolutely loved maybelline falsies volume express mascara so i thought to try it.

This is how the product is described in on the UK website of maybelline:

1 GLAM SHADE

FALSE LASH GLAM IN A TUBE, INSTANTLY!
OUR FIRST SPOON BRUSH.
LASHES APPEAR VISIBLE, CORNER TO CORNER, NO GAPS.

Why You’ll Love It

• False lash glam, instantly!
• Our pro-keratin formula and spoon brush fans out lashes from corner-to-corner. • Suitable for contact lens wearers.
• Also available in Waterproof .

For Best Results

Hold brush with spoon side upwards against lashes and sweep from root to tip. Repeat until desired look is achieved. Do not let dry between coats.

And i must say i totally love it…it gives a really nice look to your lashes and makes them look super thick and heavy compared to lashes without any mascara…
My main concern while using a mascara is that it should be smudge proof as i wash my face multiple times in the day for praying. The weather in summers in Pakistan is also very hot. this mascara is completely smudge proof and u can wear it all day long without any worrying about smudging or re-applications.

It’s price is also reasonable considering the quality of product and prices of mascaras of other brands which are smudge proof. Its is worth $ 7.99 US dollars which is approximately equal to 816 pakistani rupees.

I haven’t tried many mascara of other brands but other brands that offer mascaras with similar qualities are more expensive as i have observed. for example l’oreal, bourjois paris etc. I haven’t tried them so i cant vouch if this maybelline mascara is better or worse than them :p

i have had it for a few months and so far it hasnt dried or anything. I wan tto add a tip here for keeping your liquid makeup fresh and usable for longer. I store my liquid makeup and nail polishes in the refrigerator. It helps makeup to last longer and protects it from sunlight. This is a useful tip as the weather and humidity keep changing in Pakistan throughout the year.

However i have noticed that maybelline falsies express volume mascara would work better if you already have naturally thick/heavy/long eyelashes. My eyelashes are light and short in length. So this mascara doesn’t quite look like i have fake eyelashes on but it would definitely do the trick if u already have thick eyelashes.

I think that’s enough information about this mascara :p. If I summarize my views about it then i would say,again, that i love this product and it provides value for money 🙂
