The Body Shop Pakistan's 'Open the Gate to Goodness with Nadia Hussain

Ramadan,our Holy month has now departed.It was a busy one for me along with eid.I have a lot of posts due but this one is the most due one as this event happened right before Ramadan & somehow I couldnt manage to do this.So I am doing some extra work on this one and adding some updates as well.
The Body Shop Pakistan launched two fragrances in Pakistan at this event that was arranged by Constantine PR.The Body Shop called it the "Open the Gate the Goodness With Nadia Hussian"It was a social event & the main focus of this event was to help the 3500 children of the Pakistan Sweet Homes.It is a shelter house for children who are less fortunate.The Body Shop decided to donate Rs.25 from every item that is sold to the Pakistan Sweet Home to provide food,clothes & education to these children.Nadia Hussain who is one of the Top Models of Pakistan was the brand activist & she supported the cause zealously.

The grand event was held at Angeethi Islamabad.I was honoured to be invited on part of the Body Shop Pakistan & Constantine PR.It was one of the best events that I have attended so far in Islamabad.

The two perfumes that were launched at the event were the Red Mush Oud & Life is Gold!

The event closed with a lovely dinner & some special Goody Bags for the Beauty Bloggers and other special guests.

Summarizing up the post I would say that Constantine PR & The Body Shop did a great job in bringing to town this event.Social events like this make the society strong & keep the community united.It opens more people's eyes and evokes them to do good & helpful deeds for the poor and needy people.
Recently Sunday Plus,The Nation gave full coverage to the event

Another magazine that gave coverage to the social cause was Good Times (GT Magazine)

Big Thumbs up to both of these magazines for the awesome coverage.
Once again a Big thanks to the lovely team of Constantine PR for the invite & a big round of applause for taking the lead in arranging such events.

Thanks a lot for stopping by.

~Review:Loreal's Color Riche's ColorEverAfter ‏ 131MISTINGUETTE~

L’Oréal Paris, the world’s leading beauty brand, has launched an exclusive range of fifteen shades of lipsticks to commemorate the 30th year anniversary of their renowned makeup brand Color Riche. With fifteen shades from five different color families, the brand intends to make every woman’s ‘color ever after’ a real possibility.For more details read my post.
I recieved a sample of the lipstick and the name of the shade is 131 MISTINGUETTE !
I am reviewing the lipstick today!

Experience the intense, natural and boosting serum lip shades through L’Oreal Paris Color Riche where the L’Oréal Laboratories have selected only the purest and finest color pigments, combined uniquely with Omega 3 and Vitamin E to moisturise lips for smooth application and for comfortable wear. 
Loreal has always been one of my favorite brands when it comes to lipsticks.This is not the first time I am trying a Color Riche Lipstick.I already love the range.To celebrate 30 years of Color Riche Loreal has introduced new shades to the already selling line.It has shades for every age !
Those who love matte lipsticks can go for the matte shades and those who like satin or creamy finish can also go gaga on the range of shades available.
The packaging of the lipstick is just perfect & dandy.The color of the lipstick in imprinted at the bottom along with the number and name of the shade.

The lipstick is quite creamy.Glides easily on the lips and goes on smoothly.It doesn't tug like some other matte lipsticks and also doesn't tend to get dry.It keeps the lips hydrated.Though the color looks way too bright in the tube ,it is not that bright on the lip.Its formula is very opaque and pigmented.A single layer will give a good pay off but two layers will do better.It is a color for everyone.From medium,fair to dark skin tones,lipstick lovers will love this shade upon them.I am a pink lipstick lover thats why this is a good addition to my already pink lipsticks.

The staying power of this lipstick is a little lesser than my expectations.It stays on my lips for 3-5 hours with eating and touch ups.I want Loreal to improve the staying power formula of their lipsticks too.
Here is  a swatch of the lipstick on my lips.
Yes thats the reflection of light on the lower lips.The lipstick itself is matte.
If you want a more brighter tone,apply two coats of this lipstick.
This color is also very summer-ish!I would love to wear it when I am in the mood to party :)

Have you tried any Color Riche Lipstick yet?
Which shade is your favorite?
