The Body Shop Chamomile Eye Make-up Remover

So I made a trip into Mall of Lahore the other day and found myself looking in The Body Shop, I've always loved The Body Shop and love going in there.  So I was running out of eye make up remover so I bought Chamomile Gentle Eye Make Up Remover.  I bought it for Rs.850. I have always gone for make up removers for sensitive skin because at times I do get pretty sensitive skin and I am contact lenses wearer so it's much easier that way.
Anyway onto the product it comes in a white medium sized bottle and has a small hole where the remover comes out.  It's a transparent fluid and its about 250ml.  
I have only been using this product for few weeks and sadly to say that this product disappointed me because I found this make-up remover not gentle at all! The first time I used this to remove my make up I was in for a bit of a shock because my eyes stung whilst using this product to remove my eye make up I thought oh maybe it's just me but I used it a few more times and no it wasn't me it actually stung! and as it stung I could not remove all my eye make up.  Otherwise on the face it removed my make up but it left my face a bit sticky..which I did not like So I will not be buying this product again and it is defiantly not gentle at all..
But I will recommend L'oreal Gentle Eye Make Up Remover ,it removed all my make up and was gentle on my skin and perfect for my eyes!

Vaseline - Lip Therapy with Rose and Almond Oil

Every girl loves to have soft lips..and I usually use a lipbalm or a chapstick and they do moisturize my lips but I prefer to have abit of color to my lips aswell.  So one day I saw my friend using Vaseline-Lip Therapy with Rose and Almond Oil and the packing was really cute and so I put some on too.  I loved the effect because it moisturized my lips and gave them a slight hint of color and shine to them.  Plus the packing is so cute and small it can fit in your handbag, clutch or even slip into your pocket! which I find is great because it doesn't take up much room and its brightly colored so its easy to find! 
Another plus point about this product is the price! Its a reasonable price not expensive at all..and it does the job that its supposed to do.
Applying this product is so easy aswell..just one sweep of your finger in the product and apply to your lips and thats it and because its just a tint of color there is no worry  that you have applied to much of the product or the its un-even, you won't even need a mirror to apply this product which is great when your in a rush!
This product is great for chapped lips aswell as I get in the winter and I also find that in the summer that my lips get quite irritated whilst sitting in the fan or AC and this product does the trick.
But the only problem I have with this product is when I apply this product too much my lips really dry out for some reason ?

But overall this product is worth a try especially for everyday use and the price!

MAC - All That Glitters Review

Hey Girls,

I wanted to write about one of my favorite make up products that I repeatedly buy once I see it running out.
Its a MAC eyeshadow named 'All That Glitters'
 I went to the MAC counter in search for a neutral eye shade to wear during the summer months. I got recommended a Lilac color at first but I thought I need something that will go with everything..And then the assistant came out with this little stunner!
Its a rather plain color but that's one of the reasons I love it! It is a beige/pearly shimmery color. You can wear this eye shade by its self or add a darker shade in the crease. It has a warm undertone to it, but you can do so many looks with it as it's neutral color. I love adding a dark brown to this eye shade the effect comes out beautiful!
This color is really wearable going from day to night as it has the shimmer to it. I also love using this as a highlight on the brow or just using it for the tear duct. 

I live in a hot country and combination skin and wearing this eye shadow was a breeze it stayed on from day to night, and what I love about MAC eye shadows is that when I apply there is hardly any drop out.

Hope you found this review useful.

Branded Make-up Vs Cheap Makeup

People wonder why branded makeup is so expensive and out of reach? Why not just use cheaper products and save the money? The reality is there.. There is a huge difference between the two.
For starters of make-up cheaper products can be used. It helps for practicing, rather than experimenting by highly expensive brands and end up wasting them. As you get the hang of it you can step up and use bit more costing brands. So when you have become an expert you can move on the most expensive make-up. And trust me, you will notice a huge difference from where you started and where you have ended up.
The cheaper labels present are more powdery and will not give you satisfying  results. For example, if cheaper foundation is used, you will find lesser shades and will not suit your skin. It can cause skin problems and make your skin look weird. This is because of imbalance of certain substances in the product, because of low research. If you buy cheap eye-shades, they will probably turn out to be more powdery and falling on other parts of the face from the eyes, plus the fact that it wont last more than half an hour.
Now the facts of recognized brands. All the beauty products which are being produced by some of recognized brands are made with full research of the ingredients which are present in it. They are thoroughly tested on all skin types and and dermatologicaly proven and accepted. They make sure that everything needed is in balance and is hygienic in every aspect. Then they provide their customers which they really need by every day. For example, there mascaras will be the best, volumizing, lengthening and darkening them up beautifully without any clumps being formed. 
So as I have observed , all the research and costs made by these cosmetic companies to provide a good quality product to their customers  do deserve to be well publicized and respected. for practicing make-up you can use cheaper brands, but branded cosmetics take it to a whole new level.

L'oreal Glamshine Lipgloss

Today I will be doing a review of L'Oreal glam shine lip-gloss. it has been one of my favourite lip-glosses over the time. It has a wide range of beautiful colors. As it is described, it is actually quite shimmery and it dazzles ones lips up. It comes with a beautiful, cute and a transparent bottle. It contains 20oz. of lip-gloss. It volumizes the lip color and gives your lips the shape, depth and luster.
It has moisture drenched formula and liquid consistency which makes the lips moist. One of the best thing about this is that it not at all sticky, despite of the amount of glitter and pigment present in it.The application is quite easy with there different wand, which applies on the lip with only one perfect stroke. When I applied it, it looked really sparkly and shimmery and it made no bumpy effect, which most sparkly lip-glosses usually do. It is not particularly my casual wear, but more of a formal wear, because it makes my lips look too fabulous.
It also stays on for quite a long time as the company claims it to be. It will also leave a shine after it fades and keeps the lips soft.
Shockingly,  the lip-gloss is really cheap to buy, and it is a total investment. It gives a brilliant effect at night time. The wand application is very easy, smooth and controlled. Bottle looks very cute and is handy; shape of a hourglass. it moisturises the lips, so no lip balm is needed.
It totally makes your face lighten  up and makes you the ultimate drama queen.Iit has very nice smell but not any taste. It didn't irritate my lips so its good enough for me. The sparkles blend in and creates a superb shine, almost as a reflection. I feel great to wear it anytime. It had shades of lighter pink, mauve, natural, beige and peachy type colors.
I can say that its the most glitziesed and shiniest lipgloss I have.
 L'Oreal Glam Shine Liploss is totally worth it..!
