An evening with Bioderma

Hi, guys

As you all know that we attended the Bioderma product launch in Islamabad recently, we decided to share some highlights of the event with you and introduce the product to you like it was introduced to us.

The event was basically a hi-tea at Tuscany courtyard which started with the brief introduction of the company and their theory behind the brand. They gave us informative insights on how the products are made and how good they’re for your skin.  The product of the day was the water based makeup remover; sensibioH2O.

We were taught the right way to remove makeup through a detailed and we must say a very informative video which helped us in understanding the product and making the best use of it. If you follow the steps in the video you’ll be able to remove your makeup without leaving any trace of it!

Later we were given to test the product then and there and were told to give reviews, it was a funny moment because we all thought that we’d have to remove our makeup but thank God for the lipsticks we always carry in our bags and our ever ready canvas ( back of the hand) on which we test them.

The event winded up after the Hi-tea, a very delicious and scrumptious hi-tea and a little lucky draw that took place for the bloggers present at the event. The prize was a bag of products from Bioderma it self and was won by Khadija, a fellow blogger and good friend.

We’ve tested a couple of products from Bioderma as they were given to us in a form of a goody bag and our favorite one till date is the water based makeup remover. It’s a lifesaverrrr  for lazy or to put it in good words busy girls likes us 😉 No need of getting up and washing your face guys when you’re super tired, you can take your makeup off in a jiffy with this miracle product!  Here’s a picture of all of us Islamabad Bloggers at the event 😀

The Makeup Bullet

We did it before Nikkie, sorry, had to say this lol.
Beauty blenders have been a life saver for all of us makeup junkies and the makeup bullets are just another addition to the beauty blender family, a younger and a much convenient addition. An alternative of beauty blender have been of all the rage this year on the internet there have been silicon sponges, boiled eggs,  makeup bullets and what not.

It’s a little hard to hold a beauty blender in your hand and merge your eye makeup with a blending blush at the same time, hence, a makeup bullet makes it possible for you to do both simultaneously. You won’t even have to worry about your beauty blender falling from your hand again and again. It fits your finger perfectly and helps reach the little corners and niches  of your face that your regular beauty blender is not able to.

17467774_10155073828860350_1587694548_n

It has a good finish and blends your makeup seamlessly . For people who unintentionally go in with their hands while doing their makeup this product will be a life changer for you as it is a much cleaner substitute.

We love it and would keep on using it but we’ll have to put it out there that it has not stopped us from using our regular beauty blender.

Hope you guys like the review and if you want to see more reviews like this then comment on the Instagram post and we will try our best to bring in more fun product reviews for you!

Favourite Makeup products of 2016 

2016 was the year I & everyone around me was literally OBSESSED with make-up & also the year which made me realize that half of your make-up is your skin so if you need to get your make-up game on point you need to get your skin on point first.

Putting the obvious aside I’ll start with my ABSOLUTE favorite products of the year;

16295188_10154903821885350_936650784_n

– Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation.
I had to get my hands on this one as all the make-up gurus were raving about it & I must tell you guys that it’s worth every penny. I believe we’ve all moved from the full coverage heavy looks to the more natural “no make-up looks” so if you’re looking for a light flawless looking coverage then this     ml bottle is all you’re looking for.

Shade adjustment drops
Although the strong scent might be a turn off for some people it doesn’t seem to bother me, this little dropper is like my little secret to luminous flawless looking skin. You can either use it as a highlighter or add it in your base to give it a little liquidy/luminous touch & also to lighten it’s shade.

16343804_10154903821670350_332508485_n

– StageLine liquid lipsticks
I was introduced to the brand Stageline on Sobias masterclass & I never knew it’ll turn out to be so GOOD. From the Tv sticks, to the mascaras , to the liquid lipsticks everything is worth more than the price, if I be honest. They’re long-lasting, not drying & pretty vibrant but its a bummer how they only have a few colors so far.

_8f8df85d-d8f5-4e0a-923d-6f6136271ad1__hoola_500px_1

 – Hoola bronzer
Till the start of 2016 I was all about the cream contour but as time went by I realized that 1 – my face doesn’t need that much contouring 2 – I don’t have so much time to cream contour my face on a daily biases & just  then I was introduced to the holla bronzer. It’s SO pigmented & its little brush is the perfect shape for contouring, one swap & I’m good to go with more sculpted cheeks & a contoured nose.

16358369_10154903822620350_1406011418_n

 – Mac Prep & Prime Fix
I haven’t really used the spray as a primer yet but I’ve been using it as a setting spray and it has clearly been doing its job as one, it holds the makeup in place for hours and literally makes it melt into your skin hence giving you a flawless looking skin.

16358439_10154903821775350_725153766_n– Stainiac Lip & Cheek stain
Lip & Cheek stains are a secret ingredient to my makeup routine, they look absolutely natural and stay all day long. I use the Stainiac lip & Cheek stain from the balm cosmetics, i don’t personally like it on the lips but its perfect for the cheeks and I don’t think I’ve used powdered blush ever since I’ve got my hands on this.

16343569_10154903821845350_355346705_n

 – Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
An oil free concealer that covers all types of blemishes and doesn’t look cake-y or bulge up. The only drawback is that they only have a limited amount of shades available.

16344398_10154903816535350_1808780078_n

– Sexy Mama Translucent Powder
Sexy mama does exactly what its supposed to do; powder your face without a trace. Doesn’t cake up & leaves a matte finish.

379401-mlb20331831448_062015-y

– Inglot Gel Eyeliner
Darkest & smoothest liner to work with, glides on your eyelids & doesn’t smudge.

Do share your favorite makeup products of 2016 with us 🙂

Black to Blonde!

Hi guys!

Most of you who follow us on Instagram and Snapchat know that we recently got our hair dyed, in other words, our Mother finally allowed us to dye our hair, hehe. We both got our hair dyed by Nazish Bangash; L’oreal Educationist, at Royce by Sabeen Sajjad located in Bahria Phase 7.

I had virgin black hair and I wanted a little change so here’s what I went for;

I went for a blonde color with a contouring technique by which the sides of my hair are lighter in shade compared to the center of my hair/head. ( The pictures are unedited). 717 & 811 Loreal are the exact shades.

Here’s a picture of my hair after a couple of washes ;

I, on the other hand already had color treated hair in the form of highlights but this time I wanted a completely different look so I opted for bronze blonde hair which Nazish & Sabeen decided to do in a sunkissed and balayage mixed technique

Duvi Stockholm Products

Hey, guys!

I hope you like the new layout of the website, we all love a little change, don’t we? Talking about change, I just changed my skin care products last month and my skin has never felt better.

I never review skin care products until I’ve used them and I’m sure about my opinion on them therefore it took me more than a month to review these Duvi Stockholm products.

13340401_10153541028642019_1904090315_o

I’ll start with my favorite product out of these two and that has to be the Green Tea Facewash!

Duvi Green Tea Face Wash – Rs 1150/-

13324093_10154188399910350_1530504611_o

I’ve had some horrible experiences with face washes and I was quite near to believing that face washes and I would never get along until I came across this Duvi Green Tea Face Wash. It’s for all skin types and includes Aloe Vera extracts, it LITERALLY removes all the dirt, MAKEUP and impurities from your face without drying your skin. It actually does reduce the severity of breakouts, trust me on this one, my skin hasn’t gone all wild ever since I’ve been using this little white 150 ml bottle which is enriched with natural ingredients.

Duvi Vitamin Toner – Rs 1300/-
13313376_10154188397835350_866676818_o

The Duvi Vitamin Toner removes all the left over makeup and impurities from your face that your face wash fails to remove and returns your skins bright complexion that is hidden behind all the dirt, tiredness and impurities of your skin. The Vitamin Toner consists of Organic Apple extracts from French Provence,  Vitamin C,B1,B2,PP,B5,B6,B9, Provitamin A and Vitamin E. For better results a toner is always to be used after cleansing your skin, it is to be applied on a cotton pad and swept gently on the face and neck, make sure to avoid the areas around your eyes.

The soft towel with the products I received was like a cherry on top and the results of the products were so impressive that I ended up ordering their White Daisy Skin Brightening Cream and I’m loving it.

You can order Duvi’s products from Daraz.pk or their website Duvi.com & you can follow them on Instagram.

Sinfully Sweet!

I recently came across these Jars filled with deliciousness by the name Sinfully Sweet and I wanted to share it with you guys!
I tried two of their jars;
13324036_10154183851830350_175527576_o
The packaging is as adorable as the name, love how the mousse is in plastic jars to make sure it can be kept frozen easily.

13321242_10154183852255350_1775666616_o
I’ll start with the ‘Mutella’ one as it was my favorite, it’s basically Nutella mousse with a chocolate cake base and it tastes amazzzzzzingg. The mousse is super light and it has the perfect amount of sweetness to it, the one that doesn’t want you crave water or make you tooth ache.

13321247_10154183852340350_1031667188_o
I admit ‘Happy Layers’ wasn’t as tasty as ‘Mutella’ but I loved how they layered Ferrero Rochers, White Chocolate Cookie & Cream, Dairy Milk pudding and Chocoate fluff cake together in one little jar, the only turn off was the chocolate cake as it was a little dry. I did end up finishing this jar too though, hehe.

They have a lot of flavors for you to choose from , being a chocolate junkie I only choose the flavors which had lots of chocolatey stuff init, you can choose whatever flavor you like the best.
13327496_603299429838211_8544593356616550719_n

Each jar costs 550 and its available at

-ESAJEE’s, KOHSAR MARKET, F6 Islamabad
-SHAHEEN CHEMIST, Bhittani Plaza, Peshawar

so you can easily avail this sinfully sweet jar of deliciousness.

Pure & Organic Skin Care Products!

Hi, my angels!

As you can all see I’m all about skincare these days and it’s all because I’m finally realizing the importance of clear skin. Guys, I can’t emphasis enough on the importance of skincare, flawless looking skin is actually the root to looking fresh whether it’s with or without makeup so without wasting more of your time I’ll just skip to these Dr. Kureshi products that I can’t help myself from using these days!

image

I know we all hesitate while using local skincare product specially when they aren’t that we’ll known, I know I do and that is why basically I didn’t touch these products for like 2 days thinking I’d ruin my skin but I was completely shocked when I tried these products.
I’ll be honest and only review about the 3 products I’ve used and they’re the luxurious face oil, Intensive hair oil & the ultimate cleansing toner.

image

These products are for all skin and hair types and are also 100% pure and Organic.
I’ll start from my favorite product which is the Luxurious Face oil.

Luxurious Face Oil – Rs 1499/-
13288922_10154170621075350_367752527_n

It comes in a 30ml dropper bottle which makes the appliance easy and less messy. It’s a mixture of eleven essential oils including almond, jasmine and anti ageing argon. The purpose of the oil is to hydrate and moisturize your skin without leaving any greasy residue on your face. I know, I know thinking about oil and non greasy-ness kind of doesn’t go along but that is what I LOVE about this oil, it actually doesn’t feel greasy or sticky when you apply it which is like a plus point in these summers. Take two to three drops of the oil and massage it onto your skin and let it stay and do its magic over night. You’ll definitely feel the difference in your skin after a couple of days, it’ll be much more soft, moisturized and hydrated.

Intensive Hair Oil – Rs 1399/-

image

The intensive hair oil comes in a 100ml spray bottle and the SPRAY bottle once again makes the appliance super easy and less messy. It’s the perfect solution for damaged hair as it brings the moisture back in your hair and helps with removing dandruff. Apply a little amount of it on your hair for about an hour before you take a bath and rinse with lukewarm water. Also, don’t worry, even this oil is non greasy!

Ultimate Cleansing Toner – Rs 500/-

image

The ultimate cleansing toner comes in a 120 ml spray bottle and it helps in cleansing and toning your skin and brings back it’s radiance. You can apply it after you’ve washed or cleansed your face with the help of a cotton pad and as all other toners it’ll help you take off the last bit of dirt and makeup from your skin and bring back your skins radiance and natural beauty.

I’ll be reviewing the rest of the products real soon so keep checking guys!

Keeping all of these products aside the most important thing for your skin is water, drink as much water as you can specially when you wake up and you’ll feel the difference in your skin yourself.

Also let me know if you want me to share my entire skin care routine with you guys, you can either comment below or on our latest Instagram post.

You can order these products online from Dr. Kureshi and follow them on Facebook & Intsagram.
