Makeup Collection #1 – Liquid Lipsticks.

Hey guys, hope ya all are doing well.

I am back in my home country and its flipping hot here so I don’t think I’ll be able to do proper makeup looks but I have a lot more to share.

I am thinking to start a makeup collection series which will be short af because I don’t really have a lot of makeup.

Part 1 is all the liquid lipsticks I have, most of them look similar in the pic but I swear they are different okay.DB5gUSoVwAAFEpT.jpg

Follow Me Around On Instagram.

As most of you who follow my blog would know that I have my very last exam on 19th and that day will be my last day of school. And on the 20th I am travelling back to my home country, which means I will have less than 24 hours to get my shit done.

Most of the times when I am travelling, I have a day or two to get my shit ready but this time its less than a day so yeah I have to work in a flash or even like quicksilver, anything would work really. (DC and Marvel fam would understand what I just said).

Okay back to the point, my point is if anyone of you would like to follow me around when I am running here and there like crazy. Then follow me on Instagram as I will be posting many Insta stories.

My username on Instagram is @thebloggingbrunette.xo

If you are interested in ‘Follow me around’ kind of videos then do check out my insta stories starting today from 8 AM (UAE time) or 12 AM (EST).

What’s In My Makeup Bag?

actual

Even before I was a blogger, What’s in my bag (school, makeup, college, travel edition) posts always intrigued me.  Now that I actually have a platform to share things with you guys, Why not do it myself? Mine probably won’t be professional, but it doesn’t hurt to try.

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Let’s start with me telling you that I am NOT a beauty guru which means I don’t have overflowing drawers of makeup. Would I love to have that? Yes absolutely! But would I ever do it? No. There are several reasons to why wouldn’t I do that and counting all those reasons will take away the focus from this post, let’s just say I am too broke to have it all.

Here it goes –

Rimmel Stay Matte Primer – Instantly mattifies my t-zone and keeps oil at bay for around 3/4 hours.

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation – Coverage is medium, can be built up to full. I don’t think this product is good for me as it’s not mattifying. I don’t ever wear this without my stay matte primer or else I will become a grease ball in an hour.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed PowderHOLY GRAIL. I have been using this product for over 3 years and I absolutely love it. It gives a matte finish to the skin without making it look cakey.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Blush –  It is a light pink shade with golden undertones and it looks natural and flattering on the skin (particularly for skin with yellow undertones like mine).

Rimmel Provocalips Lip Color – I bought these thinking they were matte, sadly they aren’t matte, but the shades (Make Your Move and Heart Breaker) are gorgeous nonetheless.

Fake Kylie Liquid Lipstick (Candy K) – Yes, it is fake, it’s not REAL. I did not order this from Kylie cosmetics. I would love to try out the real one but it’s too expensive for me so I got this fake one for round 5$. Honestly, I didn’t expect it to be good but it is really good.

Maybelline Master Piece Liquid Eye Liner – I don’t usually use an eye liner but when I do, I like to use a clean tipped marker that Maybelline master piece has.

Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara – I loved this mascara few months back but I started not liking it because I bought a new one also because its waterproof and VERY hard to take it off.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara – One of my friend recommended it to me and I have been loving it since last 5 months. I am sure everyone has heard how great the great lash mascara is.imageedit_2_4273899637


That was the list of things in my makeup bag. Comment down below what’s in your makeup bag or just comment the link to your (what’s in my makeup bag) post, and I would love to read it.

Imagine… A Perfect Lazy Day.

Alright, so let me tell you one thing about my life. I am not really allowed to hangout with friends as my parents are very strict. Which means I have never ever had a sleepover with my friends or a late night drive. Heck I have only been to a mall with my best-friend ONCE and at that time also we were supervised by her sister.

So I like to imagine how life would be if I lived with my best friend and how would it be if I was independent.

So here is what I call a Perfect Lazy Day. Feel free to imagine yourself and your bff…

Waking up to a beautiful view.

We will try to make breakfast,

On our way back from the cafe, we’d stop to buy some groceries.

Cheese Sticks.

Even though I normally post about beauty and fitness but if there is anything that I love more than beauty, its FOOD.

Yesterday I hit a 100 followers and to celebrate that I decided to treat myself. Since I am lazy this was the easiest thing I could make in a short time.

I used Puck Cheese Sticks as each stick had only 52 calories.
I also mixed BBQ Pringle’s crumbs in the bread crumbs to add a little more flavor.

Reaching A Milestone – 100 Followers.

Hey!

Today my little blog reached a 100 followers. I woke up to revise for my exam and after an hour of revision, I was kinda exhausted and hungry and because I was fasting, I couldn’t eat. I checked my phone after whining about how much more I have to revise and the first thing I saw was a WordPress notification of 100 followers. And that honestly made me so so happy. Yes I know that 100 is not that big of a deal for many other bloggers as they have thousands of followers but for someone who is completely new to blogging world with zero experience, that is pretty exciting.

It means a lot to me that  people out there thought that my blog was worth following and they decided to give my blog a chance. And in many cases I might have let them down by not posting much but in my defense A levels is a son of a gun.

To all those who follow me –

  • Thank you for giving me a reason to continue blogging.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all those reading this.

And a huge shout out to Lizzie for being my very first follower, she followed me when I had 0 followers and posts that were not of good quality. Thank you so much Lizzie.

I have a long way to go and I hope this love and support will continue.

Thank you once again and I love you all.

Wishlist Wednesday – Lush

I know its not Wednesday, I had to post this on 7th but I had back to back exams and I totally forgot to publish it 😞😞.

I am obsessed with skin care products and after all my research, I have concluded that Lush has some great products. A plus point is that it’s all fresh ingredients, nothing can go wrong when you put fresh ingredients on your face.

Lush_(Unternehmen)_logo.svg.png

1) Cupcake Fresh Face Mask.

It says ‘for oily skin’ and its chocolate flavored. Do I need any other reason to buy this ? Nope. Also the reviews about this product are GREAT and that is why it ended up in my wish list.

2) Dark Angels Fresh Cleanser.

Charcoal and mud, count me in.

3) Love Lettuce Fresh Face Mask

It has Kaolin clay and Fullers earth, which are great for oily skin.

4) Sex Bomb Bath Bomb

Am I the only one in this world who has never used a bath bomb ?? Prolly yes. I really wanna try out a bath bomb and this one just caught my eye for some reason.

Monthly Beauty Buys – May 2017

mbb.pngHey Everyone!!! I hope all of you are doing well.

I can’t believe it is already the end of May, it feels like the year just started yesterday.

Okay so to be honest, I didn’t buy anything this month with my own money. But I did buy stuff, just that it was my dad’s money. PERKS OF LIVING WITH YOUR PARENTS (that is a great idea for a new post).

My dad had to go to Canada for like 4 days for some official trip and beauty products are way cheaper in Canada than they are in UAE, plus there is way more variety.
I wanted A LOT of makeup products but I didn’t need them right now. What I really needed was face masks, especially the ones that aren’t available here.

Here is what I asked him to get for me 🙌🙌!!

2017-05-26 06.26.51 1.jpg

L’Oreal Pure Clay Masks –

  • Purifying & Mattifying
  • Exfoliating & Pore Refining
  • Energizing & Brightening

Yes, I got all 3 of them because they were cheap there so.
Each of the mask was around 10 CAD which is 28 AED in UAE whereas a single mask on Souq(e-commerce marketplace in UAE) costs around 100 AED. AND THAT IS INSANE.

I have been seeing these masks all over the internet and I knew I had to get them. Firstly, because of the great reviews and secondly, because I am obsessed with any and all kinds of masks.

I am so excited to try out these masks and I hope they won’t let my expectations down.

So there it is! my beauty purchases for May.

What did you spend on this month ?


That is it for now, Bye guys, xoxo…
