Hey Pretty Girls
How are all of you doing?
2013 is nearly mid way!As May is coming to an end & June is starting up!
My birthday falls in the month of May & like always I spent my birthday with my family.
My lovely sister in law & my hubby arranged a lovely midnight surprise for me with an awesome cake & presents & the next day I enjoyed a lovely birthday dinner with my family.
Just want to share quickly what my birthday ensemble was like!
Ok so I selected this BEECH TREE kurti with an embroidery motive at the front.
I paired it off with a white tights that was from BEECH TREE & a Yellow Dupatta from GENERATION.
For the accessories I choose this Pink earrings that I got from HAROON'S with a lady bird on it :)

For arm candy I wore one of my fav charm bracelet from JUICY COUTURE & some bangles from HAROON'S

plus a chunky ring from HAROON'S as well
On my feet I wore these silver flaties from ECS as I feel really comfortable in flaties in summers(with a kid :D )

Ok so how did you like my compiling of the ensemble!

~Review:Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer Nova & Celestial~

Heloo My Lovlies,
Today I am here among you guys to present a product review!
Its a product that everyone has been raving about!
Recently I went shopping & couldn't resist buying one of the many lovely shades of gorgeous Apocalips by Rimmel.I bought myself Nova whereas after few days I got Celstial for review purpose
Who could have been more happier!
~WHAT THEY HAVE GOT TO SAY ABOUT IT~


The earth-shattering lip lacquer from Rimmel London combining the intense colour of lipstick with a lacquer like shine, Apocalips Lip Lacquer is an explosive make-up phenomenon that represents the end of colour as you know it. Packed with pure colour pigments, its lusciously creamy, conditioning formula promises a never-before combination of colour, shine and comfort that last and last. Available in 8 shades, from subtly sexy to spectacular.
Ingredients:
It's the End of Colour as you know it! 
The intense rich colour of a lipstick, enhanced by a satin smooth shine. 

It's neither a lipstick nor a gloss... It's BIGGER than both!
~WHAT  I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT ~
To start with I ll say I am loving all the shades that Apocalips has to offer.A teenager,A college going beauty,A courting lady,A married woman Apocalips caters them all.Everyone has a different choice & I can say there is something for everyone in the Apocalips range.
The two shades that I have got are Celestial & Nova.
Celestial is a mid tone rosy hue while Nova is more on the Barbie Pink side.
I like the packaging of the product.It is a compact tube with a diamond cut shaped cap.I like how the outside colors differentiate & make it easier to pick a certain shade in a hurry without going in depth to read & check what color it is.






It has a lovely doe foot sponge applicator with a little dent in it.It sucks some product inside & therefore there is no need to dip the applicator into the tube again and again.Only one dip is enough and there you are with enough product on the applicator to give you full coverage.The application is really smooth and easy.Dont try to line your lips when you are wearing this apocalips range.Believe me it wont look good.If you keep a steady hand you can apply the color very precisely.It doesnt bleed at all.It would be better if you first line the lips with the tip of the applicator and then fill in the rest of the color.I didnt blot any color because I didnt apply any extra product that needed out blotting.
The smell of the product is like a mixture of bubble gum & plastic !! Now what would that smell like!Yes you are right! Apocalips! To make sure i was explaining right I just opened both of them & smelt again & yes i dont hate the smell.I actually like it!
Now lets come to the pay off and pigmentation of the lippies! Pay off is great as they are super pigmented.They are nothing even near to what is called sheer.They stay on the lips for a couple of hours like you may say 2-3 hours & transfer easily.But the good thing is the moisturising effect of the lippies.They are very comfortable to wear & leaves behind a satin feel.The glossy effect disappears after some time leaving behind only the creamy shade on the lips.Here are both of Nova & Celestial single swatched on my hands.

Now I want to share the swatches of both the shades in different lights.
Here is Nova



& now lets see how Celestial looks on my lips



So what do you think?
I am loving both of these shades these days.I ll wear Nova on a fun night out coz of its funky barbie pink shade wheares on a family dinner I would wear Celestial because of its softer note or Maybe if my dress has Pink in it I would wear Nova again (lol)
Ok so now the verdict:
Well I am loving these babies 
I agree they are somewhat highly priced but then you only have to invest one.I would buy these again if I am given the chance because of the pigmentation and payoff & ofcourse there are so many lovely shades.You should not buy if you are expecting long hours of staying power & a glossy shimmery finish.
Have you bought one recently?& which one was it?
Did you like the ones I have?
Thanks a lot for reading.
Any comments & questions are welcome.
Stay Happy Always.
Love,
Areej

Review: Rimmel Scandaleyes Show Off Mascara

Hello Girls
How are you doing?
I am posting after a short absence today~Though I have been sneaking in and out into blogosphere & checking on all the posts that my lovely bloggers post but haven't had the time to do a post myself.
Anyways here I am again with a new review.
Today I am presenting a Mascara Review
Its the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Show Off Mascara (BLACK) that was sent to me for review purpose.
~WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT~

Scandalous volume and lift, for lashes to really show off!
Breakthrough brush:
Flat side for volume
Ball tip for lasting lift
Fibre enriched formula for longer lashes
~WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT~
The packaging of the mascara is really funky in a fuchsia tube.I really loved the feel of it.When I first opened the mascara I was surprised!The tube felt as it was empty or used.The brush came out nearly dry as well.I assumed that the formula of this mascara must be dry.
Can you see for yourself how dry the brush is or how less product is there on it!
So I was right it has very dry formula and there is nothing in it that I am loving except the packaging,
Though they had put great effort in creating the wand.The ball like tip really helped to put mascara on my lower lashes like no other wand.
A closer look at the wand
I applied two coats to my lashes for a better result but I am greatly disappointed after even 2 coats.May be If I take out more time & apply 2 more coats it would look better.But what is in a mascara when you have to apply 4 coats!!
Now lets have a look at my lashes before and after applying the Scandal eyes Show off Mascara.
Ok so can you see a major difference?
My lashes are naturally curled so I never use a curler before applying a mascara.
Is there a visible lift: NO
Is there some visible volume after 2 coats : NO
what else the mascara claim!
Plus it says Lashes with no clumps
That's also a NO NO
My lashes were very clumpy.
I am simply liking my lashes without mascara then with 2 coats of this mascara.I am disappointed at Rimmel at making such an unworthy product.The last mascara I used from Rimmel was 123 Looks & I had loved it,
But this one is a total NO!
Have a look at my lower lashes.In the BEFORE Picture they are normal looking straight lashes,but in the after picture they are going different ways.I even tried to remove the clumps with a lash brush but to no use.I gave up in the end.
May be I ll use only the ball end of the mascara to apply mascara on the lower lashes from another tube!If you know what I mean...
The staying power is good though.It lasts around 7-8 hours on my lashes without coming down.But what to do with staying power when it doesn't apply decently.
Meanwhile if you want to cheer yourselves up & want to know about a mascara that I totally recommend Read here
Recommendation:
I would say if you have time to apply 3 or more coats of a mascara you can give it a try.Otherwise I am sure there is a better & cheaper mascara out there that would work out for you..
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Show off is retailed for Rs.850 nationwide.

Thanks for reading.
Stay Happy Always.
