REVIEW: Revlon Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze

Revlon is a cult- favorite drugstore brand. It has an amazing reputation for putting out high quality makeup which is quite comparable to high-end makeup. It may even be better than some high-end makeup sometimes. 


I purchased the Revlon Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze on a whim only because I had some money to blow and I was standing by the Revlon counter. Read on to find out what I think about it!

SUMMER FASHION TREND: Embroidered Lawn

Summers in Pakistan are extremely hot! And when I say hot, I mean it feels like the Earth is on fire. It's very hard to step out into the blazing South-east Asian sun and wearing really insulating clothes won't make that any easier. 

However, us South-east Asian women have really taken a liking to lawn fabric. Lawn cloth is a plain weave textile mainly of cotton. It is designed using fine, high cotton yarns which results in a silky, untextured feel. Lawn is a lightweight sheer cloth and it is known for it's semi-transparency. In plain words, you don't feel as hot in lawn fabric as you would in pure cotton or linen. 

Embroidered lawn is all the rage these days. From Khaadi to Gul Ahmed, everyone is putting out embroidered lawn these days. 

Here are some pictures from the leading Pakistani designers to give you an intake on just how pretty embroidered lawn can be.

SUMMER FASHION TREND: Stripes

If you've seen the recent runway fashion shows, you'll know that stripes are really hot these days. And it looks like that fashion trend is here to stay; atleast for a while. 

Now, there are a couple things that you need to keep in mind while wearing stripes. First of all and most importantly, make sure that what you're wearing fits you perfectly. Don't wear really tight fit clothes thinking that you're going to look slimmer and don't wear extremely baggy clothes if you think it'll make you appear curvier. It'll just look horrible, take my word on it. 

Second of all, match the striped pattern with your frame. If you're super curvy and tall, go for nice, big horizontal stripes. If you're smaller, go for a smaller pattern. 

Don't let the stripes overwelm you and make you look like a clown! If you're going for say, a very bold, striped skirt, keep your top toned down. That way, you'll carry that striped look really well without looking like you just stepped out of Closet from Hell. 

Here are some pictures from the runway to show you how popular stripes really are these days.

REVIEW: Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Balm

As we all know, chapped lips are a big no-no. They feel extremely bad and look even worse! I had the worst chapped lips this winter and everything I tried just didn’t seem to work. I finally spotted the Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm in one of my favorite online shopping stores and immediately grabbed it.
