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

Okay lets begin –

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.

Fake Huda Beauty Liquid Matte – Icon.

Few months ago, I had my farewell party and I needed a reddish burgundy liquid lipstick. I wanted something cheap and for a one time use. So I definitely was not going to spend 100 dhs for just one lipstick. So I found this fake Huda Beauty Liquid Matte in Icon which was exactly the color I wanted.

IMG_20170512_222620IMG_20170512_222749.jpg

Pros –

  • The packaging is absolutely gorgeous.
  • It has no weird chemical-ly scent.
  • The formula is very lightweight
  • Extremely comfortable
  • CHEAP

Cons –

  • Needs 2 coats to build up the coverage
  • Takes longer to dry down

IMG_20170512_223435.jpg

I had it on for 7 hours and I had to retouch once after eating. It gets the job done for a one or two-time use.

I am not gonna say to go out and buy fake stuff because we have no idea what goes into making that product but if you are like me and your main priority is saving money then its worth a shot.

That is it for now, bye guyss.

Trying Out Makeup Revolution Pink Fizz.

I finished my mock exams today, 6 more exams(Board) to go. But today was a break day for me, so I decided to test out my new Makeup Revolution Pink Fizz Palette. I ABSOLUTELY love the shades, they are very pigmented. And I can’t wait to play more with this palette after I am done with exams.

Monthly Beauty Buys – April 2017

mbb2

Alright so, how the hell am I supposed to manage money because on one hand I love saving and on the other hand I am totally obsessed with makeup.

I don’t usually spend on makeup because I don’t wear makeup on a daily basis. I wear it probably 3 or 4 times a month. But I decided to finally buy an eyeshadow palette because I really wanna learn different looks and also because I hated my previous palette.

I bought these products from Guzel. There is a 50% off sale on Guzel, go check it out if you live in UAE.

2017-04-27 10.48.50 1.jpg

1) I Heart Makeup I ♡ Chocolate – Pink Fizz

2017-04-27 10.52.14 1.jpg

(Price – AED38) Buy it here.

As soon as I saw this palette, I fell in love with it, the shades are beautiful and pigmented. I will write a full review on it soon.

2) L.A. GIRL Matte Pigment Lip Gloss – Dreamy

2017-04-27 10.47.22 1.jpg

(Price – AED18) Buy it here.

Some people might get confused as it says ‘Gloss’ but trust me it’s not glossy at all, it’s completely matte. Review and swatch will be coming up soon.

So there it is! my beauty purchases for April. Most of you will be like oh that’s not much and it’s not. I really wanted 2 more palettes and 1 other liquid lipstick but sadly I have spent A LOT on food this month hence I couldn’t buy the rest of the items I wanted.


That is it for now, bye guyss xoxo…

Wishlist Wednesday – Tarte

I have never ever tried any Tarte products but they do fascinate me and the products which I really WANT, end up in my wishlist.

YBUTqD_5

So here it goes.

1) Tarteist™ PRO glow to go highlight & contour palette

954

Price – (US $23) (UAE AED110)

Portable highlight and contour palette with three natural artistry shades and none of the icky, bad stuff.

Shades:

  • gleam (pearl highlight)
  • burst (shimmering sand highlight)
  • chisel (matte contour)

There is a bigger version of this palette but I don’t know, there is something about this palette that attracts me more.

2) Limited-edition glam goodies discovery set

1019

Price – (US $25) (UAE AED110)

A deluxe discovery set of tartelette™ essentials for the eyes & lips.

Limited-edition set includes:

  • tartelette™ tease clay palette with 6 limited-edition shades: whisper (light pink), crush (taupe shimmer), heartbreaker (brown), wink (light mauve), first kiss (mauve shimmer) & bff (plum)
  • deluxe tarteist™ lash paint mascara
  • deluxe tarteist™ creamy matte lip paint in tbt (mauve)

I have wanted that eye shadow palette for months. And the lip paint in TBT is a VERY pretty color (Swatch by Noelle). The palette alone is 100 AED and this whole set is 110 AED. By paying 10 AED extra, you are getting a mini mascara and a mini liquid lipstick. That is what I call a good deal.

3) Limited-edition skin squad deluxe discovery set

990

Price – (US $22) (UAE AED100)

Travel set of vegan skincare & makeup best-sellers for good-for-you-glam looks

Limited-edition set includes:

  • deluxe deep dive cleansing gel
  • deluxe Rainforest of the Sea™ 4-in-1 setting mist
  • deluxe drink of H2O hydrating boost moisturizer
  • deluxe BB tinted treatment primer SPF 30 in light or medium
  • deluxe lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara
  • deluxe Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in thrilled (dusty mauve)

Whats better than having skin care products and makeup in one set? Plus, I don’t know how my skin would react to Tarte products so this set is perfect for trying out all those different items.

 

Have you tried any of the items mentioned above? If yes, let me know if they are worth buying!

What Tarte products are in your wishlist??

That is it for now, byee guyss xoxo…

ABH’s Aurora Glow Kit.

I just found out that ABH is releasing a new glow kit and I was desperate to see the swatches.

The name of the glow kit is ‘Aurora‘. Aurora is a name given to the natural-light display in the sky, predominantly seen in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions.

goldpaint_pinkaurora

And after looking at the palette, I think they did absolute justice to the name.

Add those numbers and you get $145 or (AED725) but if you buy The Cheek Parade Palette you ONLY pay $58 or (AED280).

It’s pretty clear that whoever buys this palette will be BENEFITted (see what I did there…) way more than those who plan on buying it separately.

Buy it here(US website) and here(UAE website) before it goes out of stock. Because…. BIMD_ITSASTEAL_logo

Mini Shopping Haul.

Okay so I bought some stuff yesterday and I cant wait to try em out.

2017-01-22 09.50.35 1.jpg


1) Himalaya Clarifying Mud Mask.

2017-01-22 09.50.37 1.jpg

 

I have never used this before, so I am really excited to try it. Also it says ‘for Oily skin’, I get attracted to anything and everything which say that.


2) L’Oreal  Makeup Remover Eyes & Lips.

2017-01-22 09.50.42 1.jpg

I have been using this for like over 4 years and I love it.

p.s one is for me and one for is my sis.


3) NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illumintor.

2017-01-22 09.50.39 1.jpg

I have heard a lot about this particular highlighter and so I had to try it out myself.

I ll let you guys know what I think about it and is it worth it or not.


4) 7th Heaven Chocolate Mud Masque & Dead Sea Mud Pac.

2017-01-22 09.50.44 1.jpg

I have never heard about this brand, but it looked fun also it was cheap AF. And when you are a high school student with limited pocket-money, every cheap thing will attract you.

I ll do my research on these two masks, if they are good I might get the full-sized tubes.


That is it for now, byeee guysss. Xoxo…
