one day when I was getting my hair_do done from salon, and honestly!!was getting a bit ahemmm!!! fussy about it.I was telling the hair stylish "O please don't put too much hair product on my roots it will make my hair look flat and my roots will be swimming in oil after one hour" ahhh!!! I was really frustrated that day about my oily roots!!!. there was a girl next to my chair watching all this and smiling.Her smile made me a lil ashamed and conscious about my self.So I said "hi" she goes "hi I was listening your conversation sorry!! but if u don't mind can you please tell me which shampoo do you use?" I told her the brand ,then she goes "oh!! ok that's fine can I suggest you something? I mean something I used when my hair was as oily as your " I had a GOOD LOOK at that girl with long beautiful locks,so I said "ye sure go ahead!! y not " she said " use TRESemmé moisture rich shampoo it will over time help you to get rid of those oily roots. Look at me!! it's my third day of wash and I'm here to get my styling done can you see oil?? I was shocked I couldn't see any sign of oil !!!! she said "take my words you'll be thankful" so on my way back home I grabbed these magical bottles. 
What does TRESemmé Shampoo say??
Advance technology.
Salon performance.
Instantly locks in moisture.
"from our origins in salons,we have always been driven by a simple truth: that every woman deserves to look fantastic without spending a fortune.TRESemmé is dedicated to creating hair care and styling products that are salon quality without salon price.Salon inspired,stylist tested products to help you create your own style and experience that saline feeling everyday "


so I stopped using my old brand and was super excited to give TRESemmé a shot. I'm using TRESemmé since October and let me confess these are truly life savers for me :) now I have no oily roots( which I use to get rite after one hour of washing) no flat looking locks (let me mention my hair are normal not so silky nor dry) and I never used conditioner after every wash coz it use to make my hair weigh down and oily the very next day.but I had to use conditioner twice a week coz I was washing my hair everyday because of excess oil,and that was adding damage to my locks.

What does TRESemmé conditioner say
Advance technology.
Salon performance.
Instantly locks in moisture.
"delivers optimized hydration, targeting the driest areas to instantly lock in moisture where your hair needs it most. light enough for daily use,this advance moisturizing system with vitamin E won't weigh hair down as it resorts vibrancy and softness to dry,damaged hair"

lets talk about texture!!!
starting with shampoo texture of shampoo is not so creamy with a refreshing scent which is not too strong,a little amount if shampoo will take you a long way.while the texture of conditioner is very creamy, again with very light scent and like shampoo a small amount is enough.I use it after every wash and it is doing its job quite amazingly!! it moisturise my locks without putting excess oil in my roots.My hair feels soft,smooth and manageable.

Price Packaging and Availability:
comes in 500|ml bottle.
price Rs/350
available at all leading stores
Packaging is travel friendly.

so far I'm completely satisfied with TRESemmé and highly recommend it to my beauties.
as I have mentioned that my hair type is normal I'm not sure if it will work with very dry hair.I have shared my experience with you girls now it's your turn.Has any one of you used TRESemmé yet??don't forget to share your experience with me. till next time take good care of your self and stay beautiful.

Catrice Ultimate Shine Lipsticks review and swatches !!

Friday, 5 April 2013

I'm totally a lippy girl and love to try new shades and after reading a handful of reviews about Catrice Ultimate Shine Lipsticks I decided to give them a shot.i have been using these lipsticks for three months now(and rocked the wedding season with them),so now is the best time to give my review about these babies.
Lets talk about the Packaging and texture!!!
packaging of these lipsticks is very attractive too,it comes with mirror shine metallic casing which makes it look way expensive then it actually is.There’s a sticker at the bottom which shows the shade name and number of the colour.The lipsticks feel very moisturizing.The creamy texture glides on your lips effortlessly with maximum coverage right from the very first application.
Berry is new trend this spring/summer so I grabbed shade (150 berry pink) and O my!!!! what a gorgeous shade it is I fell in love with it at the very first swatch,and decided to get it on the spot (which I normally don't do lol) its a shocking pink shade with a hint of purple under tones.

shade 150 Berry Pink.
Second shade is soft nude pink with silver under tones which again is shade to die for Catrice named it (Get the nudes paper 200).its perfect for day wear as well as for the night with heavy smokey eyes.this shade will suite almost any skin tone.
Lets see the swatches of both shades.
took this pic in day light with no flash.
above pics are showing the closest shades of the products.the lasting power of these lipsticks is 2/3 Hours with one coat, and 4/5 Horus with two or more coats.The only thing which bothers me about this product is that the Dark Shades leaves a subtle tint behind other wise I'm satisfied with the Quality of the product.i have got my eyes on few more shades now :) but so far these two are my personal favourite's,and i recommend them to my beauties.I have bought them for Rs.750 from Shaheen chemists f/6 super market Islamabad also available at just4girls.
that's all for now my beauties!!!Thanks for stopping.don't forget to leave your comments and suggestions as they make my day!!till next time take good care of your self and Stay Beautiful!!!
