Review: e.l.f Luscious Liquid Lipstick

e.l.f essential luscious liquid lipstick ( $1/Rs.170) is well a lipstick with the texture of a lipgloss which is sheer in pigmentation but can build up the colour. The packaging is unique, having a sponge applicator at the top and rotates at the bottom. Available in 12 shades. I have with me Baby lips( sheer pink) and Cherry tart( sheer red).

According to the website:

Lip therapy is here! Intensive hydrating agents along with natural pigments leave lips with long-lasting color and moisture. This luscious liquid lipstick creates wearable color that flatters a multitude of skin tones and looks.

See how the product comes out

The swatches

1.Inexpensive. For the price, there is no doubt about the quality. Your wallet will thank you!!!
2. Super moisturizing. The staying power is like 3-4 hours.( After eating at a party my lipstick was still there!)
3.Nice packaging.
4. Easy application
5. Not sticky


Overall this product is a great buy. Since e.l.f is launched in Pakistan, check this product on their website:
Like then on Facebook to get details and updates.

Do let me know what you think?

EOTD : Old Gold...Arabic eyes

I love Arabic Eye makeup. I had this eye dust by Barry M in Old Gold, so i thought why not attempt to do an arabic eye. I'm no makeup artist. It's just what i gathered from seeing tons of pictures.

Here are the pictures.

On my eyes:
Barry M dazzle dust in Old Gold
Wet n Wild Color icon trio in I got good jeans...The Gold colour
Orlane Paris Velvet eye shadow TABAC CHAUD/DESERT VERT ( don't bother any lime green eyeshadow and dark shimmery brown eyeshadow would do)
Ulta eyeshadow in camel
e.l.f shimmering eye pencils in black bandit and boldly bronzed
Rimmel soft kohl kajal eyeliner pencil in black
Loreal original Voluminous mascara ( how i hate my lashes not showing up in pictures)
Etude creamy eyeliner pencil in white

Hope you like it Habibis!!!

NOTD : Sand Dune + Glitter!!!

I love pastel shades and this particular shade just caught my eye and i just had to get it! It's Luscious cosmetics Diamond Finish Nail Lacquer in Sand Dune. It's a creme finish nail lacquer. When after 2 coats, I thought this colour had something missing.Then popped in my glitter nail polish that i got from UK. It's called Opia by Primark. Well here are the pics...the shade is kind of light peach and on the website it is stated as Creamy pale gold which it is NOT!!!

I like it and I highly recommend it !!!

EOTD : Smokey Red

It's Sunday night and i've got nothing to do....So i opened my drawer and started looking into my makeup stash to find anything interesting. I found MeMeMe cosmetics pink shimmer highlighter that i got from UK. It had gorgeous shades of pinks and red/magenta in stripes. So instead of using as a blusher i thought why not try to use as eyeshadows. So here are the pictures. This look is kind of bridal-ish in my way. I don't know.You be the judge!

On my eyes I used:

e.l.f Mineral eyeshadow primer
Revlon illuminance cream shadow in not just nudes
Lancome eyeshadow in lezard and latte.
e.l.f Shimmer eyeliner pencil in black bandit and boldly bronzed
Rimmel soft Kohl Kajal eyeliner in black
Excuse the no lashes. My bad forgot to put mascara....Silly me!!!

Hope you like it!!!
