Look Book – Purple tights combo with white

28 May

I’ve noticed that someone has been consistently searching for a ‘Purple Tights Combo’ which has been linking to my blog for the last 2 weeks…. (which one of you silent readers is it? haan haan?) :p

Well I took that as a suggestion and came up with 2 looks of the purple tights combo with white that someone like me would be super comfy in and yet look like a complete fashionista.

The best part, all of the things paired up are available in Pakistan via retail shops, online or from your tailor 😉

1. Lunch Date

The weather is insanely hot these days and as much as we’d love to dress up for a lunch date, it ends up looking downright uncomfortable.
This look can be completed with a messy topknot & matte barely there make-up. Opt for cotton tights rather then lycra to keep it sweat free!

2. In the Bloom

I love this look probably because it has some of my favorite accessories from Accessorize Pakistan.

However if you aren’t comfy with a shorter shirt with tights, you could also switch tops with some of these gorgeous white tops from Sublime by Sara

BodyShop Baked Coral Blush – Review

25 May

Although I am was a stickler for Mac blushes ever since I started using them, the previous weekend found me randomly window shopping at the Dolmen City, which inevidently lead me to the bronzer pearls at the Body Shop outlet.

After trying a couple of bronzers on my self and not getting any approvals on how it looked on me from my mom who had accompanied me, the lovely representative decided I needed something pink to freshen my skin up rather than a bronze.

Now being a normal desi, my skin varies between tan to wheatish and I always thought PINK shades did not suit me at all, but apparently I was wrong.

From the ‘Baked to Last’ line, this duo is named Coral. Compact packaging, sturdy pressed powder which gives enough product to last ages.
The blush has a deep pink blush and a shimmery peachy highlight.

Since this is a baked blush, it has minimal fallout during application but unlike most baked product, the pickup is easy & the texture smooth and silky.

Thankfully, the highlighter does not have chunky glitter embedded in it, so although the first application is pretty sheer, the buildup instantly gives a lot of pigmentation without making it look chunky or cakey.

Both the colors can be used individually or mixed up to create a lovely Coral (Yes, that’s why the blush is named so).

I’ve used all 3 shades (2 individuals and 1 mixed) the past whole week. The highlighter is absolutely lovely to set straight the biridge of the nose or enhance the cheek bones.
A build up of pink underneath the cheekbones does some fabulous sculpting while the coral gives a gorgeous naturally flushed glow for both day time work wear or evening wear.

I’ve used the blush in the pic below with a minimal base, eyeliner and mascara.

Tell me what you think!! 🙂

The myth behind the Mythic Oil

25 Mar

mythic-oil__22714_zoom

Don’t we all keep looking for that magic potion that instantaneously provides beautiful strong hair? 🙂

In my usual hunts for the same, I came across this product and decided to see the result for 4 weeks before recording a review.

The mythic oil (nourishing oil) in a bottle is actually a serum and different from the Mythic oil spa treatment at the salons. Contrary to popular misunderstanding, this serum is not to be used for oiling or massaging; instead is to be lightly applied to shower damp hair before drying.

Packaged in a plastic pump bottle, it holds enough serum to easily last you for more than 8 months.

Mythic Oil’s consistency is very light oil with a subtle nutty fragrance & It hardly leaves an oily residue on your palms. Instantly makes hair soft, frizz and tangle free while protecting them from the thermal blast of hairdryers and straighteners.

Mythic oil coated hair without a blow-dry leaves hair in soft waves which can be straightened in a single sweep of the straightener; hence reducing the damage.

While for those with curly hair, a good dollop of the mythic oil spread evenly though your hair leaves those curls smooth and shiny without having the urge to brush them through.

At the end of 4 weeks, my hair quality has improved considerably and since I don’t need to blow-dry or straighten hair as frequently, the hair fall rate has decreased too.

Price: PKR 2500
Available: At all top beauty stores and online shops.
