REVIEW: Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeeep Conditioner

As some of you might know, I am obsessed with hair products and hair care! Personally, I feel like my hair is my best feature and therefore, I feel the need to take extra care of it. Now, my hair is long and while I don't expose it to heat often, the ends of my hair have gotten a bit dry and damaged. I've heard some amazing reviews of the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeep Conditioner and having used it for a couple of months now, I feel like I can give a very in depth review of this product.

REVIEW: Neutrogena Oil- Free Acne Wash Cream Cleanser

I am guilty of neglecting my skin a lot. I have combo/ oily skin and I always thought that anything that claimed to minimize pores/ control oils/ keep me shine free was gimmick-y. I've only recently started paying more attention to my skin and the products that I incorporate into my skincare routine. 

I picked up the Neutrogena Oil- Free Acne Wash Cream Cleanser a while back because Neutrogena is a very famous brand among people with oily and acne prone skin.

REVIEW: Benefit They're Real! Mascara

I don't really believe in high end mascaras. I mean, I'm not going to spend twenty bucks on a product that will increase the length of my lashes by 0.00001 cm. However, the Benefit They're Real! mascara has definitely changed my perspective. 


REVIEW: Milani Baked Blush in Corallina

I love blushes! They are just so gorgeous and are really helpful in bringing some life and color to the face. A while back, I purchased the Milani Baked Blush in Corallina. Keep on reading for a full review of this product.

REVIEW: the Balm Hot Mama Shadow/ Blush

One of the blushes that I've been coveting for some time now is the infamous Nars Orgasm blush. The only thing that has stopped me from getting it is the fact that since it is of sheer formulation, people of medium to dark coloring might have trouble having it show up on their skin. I recently bought the Balm Hot Mama Shadow/ Blush because I've read that it's in the same category as that of Nars Orgasm, apart from the fact that it really isn't sheer at all.

REVIEW: Revlon Colorstay 24 Hour Foundation For Combo/ Oily Skin

REVIEW: MUA Professional Eye Primer

Eye primers are a must for us gals with oily eyelids, or generally anyone wanting their eye makeup to last longer with minimal creasing. Now, I'm sure when it comes to eye primers, the Urban Decay Primer Potion is the first thing that comes to your mind. No doubt, the Urban Decay Eye Primer is one of the best selling eye primers ever but it does come with a hefty price tag that not all of us are willing to splurge on. I recently bought the MUA Eye Primer for basically a steal! Does it compare to the Urban Decay one? Keep on reading to find out!

HAULIN': What I Spent my Eidi On

For those who don't know, Eid is a holiday celebrated by Muslims and it marks the end of our holy month of fasting. On this day, we sometimes get money from our elders. Along with some previous savings, I'd been able to gather a substantial amount of money this Eid and I thought, like all beauty addicts,"Why not buy more makeup?". All of the things mentioned in this post were purchased from the facebook store, Wishlist.

Sunscreen 101

Sunscreens were a kind of underrated thing a while back, but now, people have slowly started realising their importance. These babies are essential if you want to protect your skin from premature aging and sun damage. Contrary to popular belief, sunscreens should not only be applied during a sunny day or for a trip to the beach. They should be applied all year round! This may sound contradictory to what you might have heard before, but keep on reading and you'll definitely understand why.

REVIEW: MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo

I love matte lipsticks! I know there's not a lot of people out there who like them, but I for one, adore them. I was on vacation a couple weeks back and I knew that even if I didn't buy anything special, I definitely needed to get my hands on the MAC's Ruby Woo lipstick.

Eye Shapes 101

Knowing your eye shape is pretty important when it comes to makeup. The point of makeup is to cover up any imperfections and to enhance our best features. Eyes are probably one of the most sexiest feature on a person's face, if they're played right. Luckily, that's where makeup comes in! However, to properly apply makeup that compliments your eyes, you first need to know your particular eye shape. Hopefully, this post will help you determine just that.

REVIEW: Facebook Store BeautyInBudget4U

Hello, my lovely people. I hope you're all well. I've got a pretty unique review for you guys today. It's on an online facebook store called BeautyInBudget4U

In Pakistan, it's quite hard to find more high- end brands and the products that we do find sometimes end up being fake. It's a very frustrating thing and it might have gotten some of us beauty lovers ready to pull our hair out from agony of not having such products available to us.

Having long, mermaid- like hair is all the rage these days. Everyone wants to have those effortless long curls which actually do take a lot of effort! I was one of the people who desperately wanted to grow her hair, mainly because I just like the idea of long locks, especially since I've had a bob for as long as I could remember.

Now, like most people, I hit up google and looking for ways which would make my hair grow longer, faster since it has really slow growth naturally. At that time, my hair was falling out a lot and because of that, it became quite thin and weak. I was really desperate for a solution! I came across a lot of things, but the thing that was EVERYWHERE was Biotin. It was supposedly a magical vitamin that you just pop down your throat everyday and it would give you long, luscious locks in no time. Keep on reading to find out if it really worked for me or not.
