Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Lip Gloss.

Wednesday, 19 September 2012

Sally Hansen claims that it will give you the biggest, sexiest lips possible without a doctors visit??how?? let's check out.
Its Micro-spheres with exclusive Hydro-Collagen Complex help boost fullness and shine to the extreme. Spicy gloss enhances lips natural color so they appear pinker, healthier, and fuller. Guaranteed visible results. Dermatologist tested.

Apply a generous amount over the entire lip area. You may experience a slight tingle. Can be worn alone or over your favorite lip product. Apply as needed.

After hearing so much about this product I started using it about two years back.bought it from abroad it comes in a few shades but I have it in clear and I use it over my lipstick as a gloss and sometimes on my nude lips
I love the slight tingle and the gloss that stays for hours! Softens lip lines as well.Nice taste and shine. Works better than a lot of plumpers that I have used in the past.consistency is perfect and non sticky. This product is hard to find in stores, so I was really pleased to see it,You do need to apply it every 30 min. to keep effect of plumping.The plumping action does help to fill fine lines in the lips and keeps them moisturized. for me it works but if your looking for Angelina Julie's lips from pencil thin lips then it's not for you :)
it's packaging is very hygienic and safe for comes in a rectangular jar kinda tube,inside the tube it has a brush for application.but I wish It could've came in tube to directly apply on the lips, so the color won't stick to the brush.overall I live this product and I'll continue using it as long as Sally Hansen is making it.

I Rate it 4.5/5


1. Non sticky and perfect consistency.
2. Pumps up lips instantly.
3. Light tingle gives a fuller thicker lines free lips
4. Moisturize lips and stays longer.
5. Nice cinnamon aroma.
6. Travel friendly


1. It has a tube kind application because when you apply it on your lipstick color goes on the brush and into the bottle too.

Simple RADIANCE Brightening Eye Cream.

Monday, 17 September 2012

Simple claims that's this brightening eye cream will help to reduce darkness under and around the eyes. in my opinion Yes it does !! I'm a huge fan of simple products and have been using them for years now.I think they are just superb.I'm a mother and being a mum is the toughest job on this planet :) late nights and insufficient sleep made my eyes look horrible.Since i am already satisfied with all of their products, I decided to give this cream a shot.i use it in the morning and before going to bed,after using it for about 4 weeks I could see a huge difference in my skin( around the eyes).my dark circles looked faded and I could see a healthy this cream is a part of my skin care regime.let me tell you about it's ingredients it has
Mango goodness.
4 skin living nutrients.
3 vital vitamins.
0 perfume,alcohol.
which makes it a treat for sensitive moisturize the skin and give it a natural healthy glow.very creamy texture and absorbs just like that with no sticky feeling all day long(except you have very oily lids).it has a very hygienic packaging very very handy and travel comes in a small tube but as you know "good things come in small packaging" I'm not saying that one can get rid of dark circles completely with this cream but it can help to reduce them and continues use can lead to desired result.I bought it from Uk like my other simple products.
for more details you can check their website.

I will rate it 4.5/5


1. Suits my sensitive skin
2. It has all the vital vitamins and nutrients.
3. It's alcohol free and fragrance free.
4. Non sticky and absorbs very quickly.


1. It had SPF protection too.

essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss.

Saturday, 15 September 2012

I'm not into Lipgloss that much totally a lipstick person.I don't know about you guys but I find Lipgloss a bit STICKY. But I must confess after using this XXXL Shine Lipgloss from essence I had to change my mind.essence claims that it's Ultra Shiny and moisturizing with a non-sticky formula.and they absolutely mean their words honestly!!!
I bought this product accidentally one day when I was checking essence's other products too.the description of this product(non-sticky) caught my attention,so I grabbed it.I have it in (18 Sparkling Papaya) it's a peachy orange shade which is my hot fav these days.its perfect for cool n fresh summer look.I fell in love with this product after using it for the first time,i could't believe how moisturizing this product is and still non-sticky,it keeps my dry lips smooth n soft all the time,can't say enough good things about it seriously!!!
It has a very smooth creamy texture which is super moisturizing and smells so nice not like others do (cherry cough syrup).I don't remember it's exact price but it's between Rs 350-400 easily available every where.

I rate it 4/5.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder Transparent.

Wednesday, 12 September 2012

ok!!! after hearing a lot of "va va VOOM" from everyone I had to give this product a shot. It claims to control shine up to 5 hours with natural minerals and that it will help minimize the appearance of pores. Well !! it really does great things on controlling the shine and keeping makeup in place although,I haven't noticed a remarkable difference in the size of pores BUT it really helps disguise them alot.It does not look transparent at all when u first look at it in the pan,It has a medium coverage which shows ivory colour on my skin but it gets invisible as soon as u put it on your face.My personal opinion is that it would appear transparent on even dark and medium skin tones too.I use it on my T_ zone after putting my foundation on as it's the only place where I get shine, but it can be used all over the face if u have oily skin.I must say it needs a touch-up after every 3-4 hours and you are all set to go for a long day.I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this product and this is something I can't go out without now :) I have days when I had full makeup and use this powder, 6 hours later my makeup was perfect,not even oily nose and redness on my sensitive cheeks.It dose not look cakey after applying two three coats but remember "too much of something is bad" overall AMAZING product with affordable price tag of Rs/600.


1. Keeps makeup in place.
2. Settles down just like that.
3. Controlls shine.
4. Very economical.
5. Suitable for sensitive skin too.


1. It was fragrance free.
2. Packaging would have been solid,which is very clumsy that's why not Not travel friendly.
3. It had SPF and UVA protection.

I will rank it 4/5.

that's all beauties hope you find it let me know about your suggestions and remember your comments will make my day :)

Radiant Hands Nails and Cuticals Cream by Sally Hanson !!

Saturday, 8 September 2012

Radiant Hands Nails and Cuticals cream by Sally Hanson !!

Do you have rough hands, dead skin around your nails and dull life less nails?? then this cream is a solution for you. Sally Hanson's Radiant Hands Nails and Cuticals cream claims to soften hands n Cuticals straight after u use it and yes it really does fulfill it's claim :) I have been using this cream for years now and I can't get enough of it I must say. I use it as my night hand cream. it has a thick creamy texture very sticky (which they claim it isn't) Thats because it has all the important vitamins for healthy skin,so I don't recommend to use it as your day cream.
I also use it as my cuitcal cream when I need to get a quick manicure :) i just simply rub it around my Cuticals for a few mins n then cut them with Cuticals cutter and I'm done just like that :)
I bought it from a famous drug store in Islamabad (can't name it) for 550/Rupees
do try it I strongly recommend it and let me know about your views as well.
