~[Review]-Wet n Wild Mega Last Lipsticks:Rosebud,Smokin Hot Pink,Sugar Plum Fairy~

Recently I did a Lipstick haul.Today I decided to swatch some of them.Two of them were Wet n Wild Mega last lipsticks.Previously I owned one more Wet n Wild Lipsticks.So today I am presenting a review of these 3 lipsticks along with detailed swatches.

These three lipsticks are:
~Rose Bud
~Smokin' Hot Pink
~Sugar Plum Fairy
These Wet n Wild Lipsticks are a favourite among bloggers and makeup holics since they are very affordable and the results are too good considering the price.The range of colors available also makes it hard to choose what you want.These are matte lipsticks and they last around 4-5 hours effectively if you choose to eat/drink less.Otherwise you can always re apply it after you are finished with your lunch/dinner.
It is advisable to use a lip balm before applying it otherwise they tend to get somewhat dry & flaky.These are super pigmented lipstciks as you can see here for yourself.
Here is a single swatch of these lipsticks on my wrist without any primer underneath.
The best thing about these lipstick is that they don't bleed and can be used with out a lipliner.I am not a lipliner fan so these are easy for me to handle.The application is also very smooth and creamy.They glide very easy and I just can't stop loving them enough.They also do
The only thing that is somewhat problematic is the packaging.One has to be really careful taking off the cap and putting it back because the whole lipstick bullet doesn't fit back inside the tube.Some part is always visible so it can easily come off with the cap.
I am loving my shades but still I want to order so many more next time.
The shades that I have got are
Here are swatches on my lips indoors and outdoors without lipliner or primer.

Rosebud: Its a medium rose pink shade and is super pretty to be  worn everyday.Its my go to lipstick since I got it!
Smokin' Hot Pink: Its a medium hot pink shade.Its not very bright and is also great for everyday wear.
Sugar Plum Faiey: Dark plum shade- Also a very Good dupe for MAC Rebel

~Review:Maybelline Master Drama Kohl Liner in Ultra Black~

So girls the search for more and more make up and awesome products goes on.
I have a thing for eye liners specially black so I am usually on the lookout for something worth buying.Recently I saw this pencil by Maybelline and the testing at the counter made me want it badly.So here it is.Lets see what it is like.Maybelline is one of my favourite drugstore brands.
WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT IT:
Winner of Best Eyeliner at the Cosmpolitan Beauty Awards 2012.

Add some drama to your eyes with Maybelline New York Master Drama Khol Liner in ultra black.

Cream technology, smooth glide, colour intensity.

16 hour hold.

WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT:
Before I came across this kohl pencil I was using Scandal Eyes by Rimmel.I loved it until suddenly it turned dry.I love something that is intense and creamy.This is the current answer to my demands.It glides smoothly on the skin.Its very creamy in texture and the pigmentation is the best.I am currently wearing it on my waterline but I have tried it on both my upper lid and lashline as well.It does work well as a kajal and an eyeliner both.
It claims 16 Hours hold.To be honest I havent tried it for that long period until now.But it stays there without budging for a usual night out or day out for good 7-8 hours.I have had no irritation using it.I love its easy application.You really don't need to be a professional to use this pencil.Its such an easy task to create kohl rimmed eyes with this liner due to its soft tip.
Here are some  swatches
The upper one is single swatched while the lower one is double swatched.
Can you not go gaga at this amount of pigmentation.I am just loving it.
Oh I forgot to mention its also great for tightlining your eyes.Its a multi functional kohl pencil.Just keep it in your make up pouch and forget about any other extra eyeliners.It can work as your kajal,your eye liner hence an amazing product.
Its also waterproof.I washed my face when I returned back.It didnt come off until I took it off with a makeup remover.

Here are my eyes tightlined with Master Drama,one stroke on the lower lash line and upper eye lid as well.
I have used Bourjois Counter Clubbing Bleu Neon underneath it.
Look at the tightlining effect!
The only thing that I don't like about it is that this kohl liner has to be sharpened after a couple of applications.
I have tried to sharpen it with my Stageline sharpener but this was the only good end result I could achieve.
I guess I need a new sharpener now!
The good thing about it is that it didn't trandsfer on my oily upper eye lids as the Colossal kajal used to.I am happy with this liner and most probably will buy it again.
I bought it for Rs.750 at Al Fateh Centaurus Mall Islamabad.
You can buy this at any Maybelline Counter or order it online at J4G.
Have you used this or any other Maybelline pencils?
Thanks a lot for stopping by.

~Bring on Some Bling:Confetti NOTD~

Its Monday so why not do Manicure Monday!
This weekend I paid a  trip to Al-Fateh Centaurus Mall Islamabad.There was nothing specific I wanted to buy.Just looking around there make up section.
Ended up buying this cute bottle filled with happiness.
Yes its a chunky glitter nail polish.
I am not sure but I think its a Korean brand PE Beauty.
After quite some time I came across a Chunky glitter nail polish that I really love.I bought one long ago that had dots type glitter but I didn't like it much.Now this one here is really interesting.Feels like partying after applying this nail polish.Its filled with beautiful multicolored chunks of confetti glitter.
Its the best thing to start Spring with.One can apply any nail color and apply this on top and the Bling is there.
I have applied Jade is not my name by Catrice as the base for this NOTD.
Here are some more pictures I want to share.



I bought the PE Beauty Nail polish from Al Fateh Centaurus Mall Islamabad for Rs.295
Happy Spring Time Girls
Enjoy every moment of this beautiful season.
Do you love confetti nails?
Thanks a lot for stopping by.
