The Body Shop Strawberry Lip Balm - Review & Swatches

Hello My Beauty Geeks!

Our today's topic for review is "TBS Born Lippy Balm in Strawberry" ,
scroll down to know more about it ...

This Strawberry Lip Balm  comes in a tiny cute little pot and the pink color balm suits the theme Strawberry. 

My Experience:
I fell so much in love with this .Gives glossy lips  & very light pink hint to lips when applied,
When I tried it for the first time I did lick some of the balm and left my lips dry as it was hard to resist :p
 The smell of strawberry lingers around for some time and if you are a strawberry lover I am sure you will love this lip balm.
The lip balm Moisturises the lip really well though you have to keep reapplying the balm now and then, especially if you want the glossiness to stay on for a while. 
At start i felt some heavy/oiliness  in my throat but after using some product it gets normal.(may be this happens to me only bco'z i experienced so with many lipiez too)
Tiny and weight less and the lid is very intact. Hence can be carried along with in your purse.
What to Love:
  •  Smells yummy and no one can resist licking it .... :p
  •  It moisturises the lips pretty well.
  •  Leaves a light pink tint to the lips.
  •  does not leave my lips dry.

Cons :
• Glossiness stays for hardly 30 mins.
• Staying power is very less and that is a major con.
• The color vanishes pretty quickly, Re-applying needs frequently.

My Rating -4/5

Price: Pkr 650/- (10ml)

what's your favrot Lip balm ?

Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Transparent - Review & Swatches

Hello Dolls!

Today, I’m gonna share with you Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder,
& i think i'm the last one on earth who's gonna review it .... hehe :p

Packaging & Swatches:

I'd picked it in 001 Transparent , which works absolutely well for me .

The packaging is so bad!! The lid is very loose, which makes it impossible to carry around in a purse. The top part doesn’t stay close for some reason, but honestly, for this price, you can’t really complain. 

color - 001 Transparent

My Experience:

I've combination skin & i use face powder for my T-zone esp in summers,
I have to say that Rimmel's STAY MATTE really makes my T-zone MATTE for upto 5 hrs . I believe the longest my T-zone didn’t shine was for 7 hours, THAT IS AMAZING!!! No shine for 7 hours!! Anyway, back to the product.

It does have some downfalls though, which I am going to talk about in a little bit.
This powder doesn’t come with a brush or sponge, but I have bought a puff and I love how it makes my face look. It doesn’t make you look “cakey” at all. It makes your face look so smooth.
It gets rid of all the shine on my T-zone which is amazing and so far, it hasn’t been breaking me out.  But I’m not sure if its comparable to a high-end product for price the quality they provide one can't complain/judge it.

I adore that it is a transparent powder and it does everything it says, gives minimal coverage & shine free T-zone .

Overall this is a really nice powder with a nice texture. If you have dry skin, stay away from areas where you tend to get dry/flaky patches and use it very lightly only where you really need it.

What to Love:

  • My face stays matte for at least 5 hours.
  • Dermatologically tested.
  • Good pigmentation
  • Minimize pores (temporarily)

  • The packaging is weak.
  • Doesn’t come with a sponge.

My Rating:4.5/5

Formula is super creamy & scent is really yummmy (even some time i wana taste it :p )

Nivea Visage Indulging Cleansing Milk - Review & Swatches

Halo Beauties ,

so after about a week i'm here with a promised post :)

Lets scroll down to know more about today's product !!!

NIVEA VISAGE Indulging Cleansing Milk cleanses dry and sensitive skin gently yet effectively.


Its gentle formula effectively removes make-up and skin impurities, while respecting the skin’s natural moisture balance.
  • Enriched with Calendula Extract and Almond Extracts, this silky texture smoothes and moisturizes your skin.
  • Purified and moisturized, your facial skin feels smooth and supple.


My Experience:

Usually a cleansing milk for the face wont be safe for use around the eyes, but this one does (considering the affordable price), & light fresh smell. The Nivea Visage Indulging cleansing milk gives the skin a wonderful clean feeling without the dryness. It cleans makeup base, foundation, lipstick, mascara and eyeliners too. When using heavy (means really heavy)makeup one cleansing step wont be enough, after wiping with a cotton, I'll massage some of the cleansing milk again for the second time until the cotton pick up no more makeup. Then followed by a foaming facial wash and toner. 

Overall, NIVEA Visage Indulgign Cleansing Milk cleans the facial skin without over drying and feels friendly on the skin overall (including the skin around the eyes). Suitable for daily use and as a makeup remover too. 

lemme summarize it for you all

What to Love:

  • Skin compatibility dermatologically and opthamologically proven.
  • It lives up to its claims. Does the job pretty well.
  • It didn’t cause me to break out unlike many other cleansers, even when I didn’t wash it after removing it with cotton.
  • The quantity for the price is awesome. Will last two or three months if used daily and some 5-6 months if used not so often.


  • it does create irritation in my eyes when penetrated.
  • As it says it is for normal or mixed skin, oilies might not like it.
No more cons as such. It is a nice product, worth a try !

My Rating: 3.8/5

Price: Pkr 545/-

MAYBELLINE the COLOSSAL KAJAL- Review - swatches

I wanna try this twist-up pencil after reading so much good about it.

Before this beauty arrived to me i got another Black kajal pencil from DMGM review is yet to be post.

My Experience:

The product is extremely well pigmented,smudge resistant & claims to stay put for 6 hours. I actually put it to test & its still in place after good 3.5/4 hours

The best part about this Maybelline’s colossal kajal is that it can work well as an eye liner, for this simple reason that it won’t chip or flake off, or smudge or fade away before 4 hours.  So you can roam around wearing it on your upper lid as an eyeliner, or inner rim, water line yet not feel itchy or irritated!!

The ingredients used in it are natural and caring like olive oil, vitamin E and a few others not mentioned

What to Love:

  • intensity
  • water+smudge proof
  • long wearing
  • itch-less 
  • attractive yellow packaging
  • lesser amount of product
  • availability

MY Rating:4/5

Dove Hair Therapy Style & Care Strength & Shine Hairspray Extra Hold

Hello Beauties

Today subject of my post is Dove Hairspray, & post may help those who are into hair sprays , if you din't tried it yet than read this post & know about this product...!


"Hair therapy. With Nutri-Style Complex. All day hold and enhanced luminosity. Better style though better care. Love your hair. At Dove we know better style comes through better care. Dove Style + Care with Nutri-Style Complex provides long lasting style by nourishing and protecting hair to prevent hair issues such as frizz, fly-aways and dry/split ends that get in the way of a great style.
 Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray Strengthens your hair style by providing strong hold while enhancing luminosity. Its fast drying formula fights frizz and fly-aways while adding body and volume. Enjoy extra hold without all the stiffness, for shiny hair with natural movement all day long."

Directions to Apply:

Hold bottle 8-10 inches from hair before spraying. To shape your style, use on slightly damp hair. To finish and hold your style, spray evenly all over hair. If dispenser clogs, rinse in warm water.


"Flammable until fully dry. Do not use near heat, flame or while smoking. Can cause serious injury or death. Do not use on broken skin. Stop use if rash or irritation occurs. Avoid inhalation. Avoid spraying in eyes. Keep out of reach of children."

My Experience:

I really don't like Dove's new hairsprays Because of its stiffness and flaking, but I'll have to say that's the smell of the hairspray is repugnant to me, it stays whole day .
it totally overpowers any perfume/cologne that may have light smell . 

It is inferior compared to the old  Dove blue bottle spray I have been using  had just the right amount of hold  It gave movable hold with no smell ,The old formula was PERFECT..!!

The new formula is such a downgrade. This new formula is absolutely terrible and leaves my hair dry and crunchy with awful smell >:( 

I will not buy this product again.


Price: 140 PKR/- (50ml)

Update : sorry for wrong price(bcu'z i'd lost receipt  ) its for 190 Pkr
