Beauty | Review : The Body Shop -Baked To Last Blush Blush- in Petal - Swatches Picture Included.

Hi you awesome peeps,

How are you doing today ?

So I think Winter is officially here  .....and I am freezing to death :D Not really to death but am freezing. 

Believe it or not I have waiting to do this review since summer, but didn't as I wanted this to be featured in the cold wintry season.

Today we are going to talk about the The Body Shop Baked To Last Blush in
'Petal'

The Body Shop -Baked To Last Blush Blush- in 'Petal'


which is a beautiful beautiful beautiful beautiful did I say beautiful duo side blush.
One side contain a pretty glistening pink blush and the other a champagne/vanilla color highlighter, or you can totally mix the two up if you want to :)

Now off with the review. 

The Body Shop Baked To Last Blush in 'Petal' is one of my very favorite blush of all time.

For $18 you get a 5g (0.17oz) of product, which last quite a while .

You know that healthy glow that we all desire in the gloomy winter season The Body Shop Baked To Last Blush gives you just that.


The packaging of this product is as cute as a button.

 It comes in a small handy dandy dome shape plastic container which I like as its not heavy weight or bulky and also doesn't feel cheap.

The Blush and Highlighter come in a dome shape too which looks so pretty and cute, doesn't it ?

You can see how much I love this product, specially the highlighters-Its A GEM.


For me this blush is more than a blush really if you have been reading my blog for a while now you know I am all about multi-tasking product.
 I adore products that can be use more than once and this is one of them.

Its is a great product to brighten the inner corner of your eyes, give a brow highlight ,use on your cupid bow also on the center on your lip to give the plump look and then of course for the cheek highlight.

I have oily skin but this product still wins me over when ever I use it.
I usually reach for this blush in the colder to give that 'fresh look '.


All in all this is a great product specially for the winter times in my opinion and ladies if you have dry skin you will love this all the year round.


The only drawback to The Body Shop Baked-to-Last Blush has that it only come in two shade which is a bummer as I would really like this product to have more shade because of the wonderful quality but other than that I have no other complain.

that completes my review for the Body Shop -Baked To Last Blush Blush.

Tell me have you tried Body Shop Blush or any other beauty product from them ?

I would seriously , love to try out their Shimmer Cubes .

Anyway I am off now, see you all very very soon with a new post...:)

Hope you found this post helpful and informative and enjoyed it.

Don't forget to share this post with your friends and family.

Till then I'll see you very very soon

Love Amna.

Beauty | Favorite Lip Combination - Fall/Winter 2013

Hi you guys how are you doing ?

I am doing fine but a little disappointed with my blogging skills right now....not to mention skipping Tuesday so unpro of me ....:( 


In today post I will be sharing a lip combo that I have just discovered and am loving for this lovely chilling weather.


PS.sorry for the lack of quality in the pictures I have been adjusting with my new home lighting situation and I am trying to figure out which light seems best. Let's get on with today post....Shall we? 

Favorite Lip Combination - Fall/Winter 2013  cover photo

I know for the season of the A/W the bold lip color are totally the hot but sometimes a girl want to tone down the look.
So in the search of that dark but neutral color combo I came up with this color combination that I am glad to share it with you guys.

First I have this IMPALA lip liner in the color 12 Pink Beige.

Impala Lip liner close up

I haven't seen this lip liner anywhere around the internet so I can't actually give you link to where to buy this but if you do find this I would recommend it as it is a nice creamy long lasting lip liner.

This is a dark beige color that is very close to my lip color but darker . Its one of those lip liner which you would need when you just want to have a define lip without any efforts really.

I first apply this lip liner and fill in my lips with this color.

Then I apply this XXL Magic lipstick in 13 right in the middle of my lip (again I can't find anywhere on the internet ) but this is a very baby doll pink color-think barbie  .

XXL Magic Lipstick

I love this color to death.
 I didn't expect anything from this lipstick as I have never heard of this brand and then I got this for so     Dhrm 3 (yes I am not joking) 3 Dhrm so you could see that for that price in my head I was thinking that it would be a kids lipstick but for that price I just had to try this lipstick out and I am so happy that I did .

The consistency of the lipstick is very moisturizing and creamy but can sometimes cling on to dry patches of the lips, so if you find this lipstick and want to try just be careful as it does cling on to the lips.

Not to forget the adorable packaging this lipstick provide.
It just so cute.

Now when combining the Impala lip liner and XXL Magic Lipstick you get dark but slight color to your look, sometimes I feel like the pink glossy effect seem like ice on my lips like water droplets or something like that.
Can you see them too?

Favorite Lip Combination

Or maybe it just me in my head.

But whatever the reason maybe I am loving this combo for the Fall and Winter.

I know it is so different from what other are going for this season but sometimes I like to change things up and well listen to my heart :) .

Not really into following trends but sometimes breaking them :) which can be quite fun :) going for something unique and different ...what you think ? 


Anyway that is it for today post you all.

I know pretty short and simple.

Hope you liked this post ...
and btw have you seen this Impala Cosmetic Line and the XXLMagic line or it this your first time too?
Let me know in the comment below you all
:)
I'll see you all very soon hopefully with better photos....

Till then tc.

Tag | Would You Rather



Hello there everyone, 

How are you lovelies doing today ? 

Sorry for not posting you all with a post yesterday, if you follow me on twitter which I highly recommend you do, you know that for past few days I have been dealing with horrible lightening issue -it is not even a joke people .
 I can never seem to find a location where my pictures could come relatively good.

Annoying to death. 

Its not that my photos were amazing to begin with but they were decent enough. 
True to color and somewhat bright .
But in this home I seem to get no what so ever natural daylight and then  inside is like I live in a cave.

Frustration at the highest.

Hopefully soon enough I will figure this light thing out and come with a beauty reviews post soon , but for today to calm my anger down I thought to do a fun tag and then 'Would You Rather Tag' just popped into my head so here we go with a easy light head tag.

 Let jump right into it :


1. Would you rather always take a cold shower or sleep an hour less than you need to be fully rested? 



 Sleep an hour less than I need to be fully rested- cold shower just gives me shiver ehhh......


2. Would you rather always have to say everything on your mind or never speak again?



Say everything on your mind- It is physically impossible for me to not talk

 or
maybe I should go for 'never speak again'  but can talk like blogging ? 
what you think ? 
I am not too keen on that one tho.....I rather say whatever that is in my mind...its not negative at all and then I think I already do talk whatever that is in my mind- my dad is pretty annoyed with me on this :D 
Now that was a long debated answer :) 



3. Would you rather always lose or never play? 




Never play, I was never into playing anyway..:)  




4. Would you rather always wear earmuffs or a nose plug? 




Earmuffs, nose plug are clearly not comfy but earmuffs can look cute :) 




5. Would you rather always win pie-eating contests or always win wheelbarrow races? 




Win pie-eating contests of-course , Pie eating and then winning it...WIN WIN situation but then I could gain extra few pound ...but my taste buds would be happy :) 




6. Would you rather be 3 feet tall or 8 feet tall? 




8 feet tall 




7. Would you rather be 3 feet taller or 3 feet shorter? 




3 feet taller 




8. Would you rather be a deep sea diver or an astronaut? 




Deep sea diver, I just love the water and all that so yes Deep Sea it is .




9. Would you rather be a dog named Killer or a cat named Fluffy? 




Cat name Fluffy -it's just so cute :) 




10. Would you rather be a tree or live in a tree? 




Live in a tree-now that would be an adventure.




11. Would you rather be able to hear any conversation or take back anything you say? 




Able to hear any conversation-sneaky sneaky :D




12. Would you rather be able to read everyone’s mind all the time or always know their future? 




Always know their future- people minds can be nasty so knowing their future is a good option :) 



13. Would you rather be born with an elephant trunk or a giraffe neck? 

Giraffe neck -Need no explanation 

14. Would you rather die from falling off a cliff or by being threatened.


By being threatened, dying from falling off the cliff can be a bit painful 


15. Would you rather be forgotten or hatefully remembered? 

Be forgotten


16. Would you rather be go about your normal day naked or fall asleep for a year? 

Fall asleep for a year. 

17. Would you rather be gossiped about or never talked about at all? 

Never talked about at all


18. Would you rather be hairy all over or completely bald? 

Hairy all over -ehh.......


19. Would you rather be happy for 8hrs/day and poor or sad for 8hr/day and rich? 

Happy for 8hrs/day and poor -if that is even  possible 



20.Would you rather be stranded on an island alone or with someone you hate? 



Stranded on an island alone being alone with someone you hate is the same thing so why not be alone...:) 




And that is it you all , short and simple quite difficult question if you ask me but not that hard.


Go on I tag you now to do this tag ....seriously do it and let me know that you did it in your blog or answer the question in the comment down below I would love to know your picks :)

Skin Care| Products that Saved my Skin : Winter Skin Rescue

Products that Saved my Skin :Winter Skin Rescue- poster


Hi you sugar plums...how are you doing today ?

With winter just around the corner don't we all struggle with dry and dehydrated skin and long to get beautiful healthy glowing skin. 

Last few day due to sinus my skin has been acting out terribly 
and by terrible I mean terrible.....ekkk...cringe worthy moment.

So I have been using few products to clam my skin down and thankfully they are working so let's hop right into this post.

1. Applying Lemon directly on to the face.

As known by many lemons are great for many many thing; they
heal acne ,
 remove blackhead,
 lighten scars and acne spots.

Lemons are great for exfoliating the skin I find, the tiny fiber in the lemon work great for removing the dead skin and the natural acid helps to remove any impurities causing the dead skin cells.

Before washing my face I start applying the lemon directly to my face then leave the juice on for about 5 to 10 mins nothing to precise, when it start to sting a bit that when the magic is happening :) and the rough dry patches get loosen up and removed also.

Doing this regularly I have also noticed that  my dry patches are largely reduced and also that my blackhead are very near from being disappeared , so good job lemon :)


2)Himalaya Herbals Neem Purifying Face Wash 

After using lemon which is quite strong on the skin I opt for Himalaya Neem Purifying Face Wash which is very gentle on the skin .
It is in a gel consistency and work great to soothe skin after using the lemon and is not harsh at all which I love.

 If you want you could add your favorite scrub with this Himalaya Neem Purifying Face Wash  to get a little bit of more exfoliation and to get rid of any excess skin.


3) St. Ive Timeless Skin Collagen Elastic Facial Moisturizer.

If you have read my Skin Care Basic Post  you have heard me talk about this product, now while I was writing that post I was just starting to use this product so I didn't have opinion on it yet. 
But since then I have used quite bit of this product and have nothing but good thing to say about this lovely right here.


This product is absolute bliss for all the oily skin ladies out here. 



It's super light on the skin yet hydrating and does clog up the pores and break me out-

yeppie
While using this product I feel it give my skin that beautiful glow but doesn't make it look shiny.
The other thing I love about this product is that when you put this on your skin it feels like water/gel consistency and  absorb into the skin fairly quickly.


If you are wondering about the collagen elastic factor of this product whether if it works or not I would say it does as after applying this I do feel my face is a bit on the firmer side 

(not that  my skin is not firm to begin with) 


After applying good amount of St. Ive Timeless Skin Collagen Elastic Facial Moisturizer on to my face I massage my face for 1 or 2 min till the product is fully absorb in my skin.



4) Vaseline Petroleum Jelly 

Yes yes I know you all must be tired of me mentioning Vaseline...but what can I do I basically end anything with Vaseline you may say it my holy grail product and for the price who can say no to Vaseline.

After my application of moisturizer I then apply small amount of Vaseline to the rough dry patches that are still left.

I use Vaseline to lock in the moisture so that it doesn't escape through out the night from my skin as the nights are always chiller and while are skin our skin is recovering in the night all the moisture would be locked in our pores resulting smoother skin and silky skin in the morning.

You can also do these steps in the morning too just skip the Vaseline and you will be good.

Within few day you will notice your skin looking brighter, healthier, smoother , and glowing and combating  the winter time beautifully.

And that is all for today post my sweet pies.

Hope you found this post helpful, if you have any question ask them away in the comment section below and I will get back to them as soon as I can.
&
Let me know if you have any of your quick skin fixes for the Winter Times ? I would love to know ...

Don't forget to share this post with your friends and family and anyone who is struggling with winter skin :) 

Till then I'll see you very very soon

Love Amna.

How To : Groom Eyebrows

Hey you guys, how are you sugar plum doing today? 

In today post we are talking about my favorite topic -yes we are finally talking about Eyebrows.
How I groom them and how you can groom them too at home.


Picture of groomed eyebrows


I wanted to do this post for such a long time but never got around doing it ...but when after several of 
months of not doing my brows( by several I mean just1 month, yes I have the barbarian eyebrows.
Don't judge me!!! )
I thought to myself I will never ever get
this bushier in my life ever again...so it seem the very right time to get my camera out and well show you all
on how you can groom your brows while not paying a single penny at a salon.

This tutorial will be very handy to those of you too who have never gotten their eyebrow done at a salon and 
are trying to figure out a way to do your brows at home.....

Shaping and trimming unruly eyebrow can be quite scary to be honest. You see so much of bushiness and get kind of overwhelmed on what to pluck out and what should be stayed.
No one like Overplucked Eyebrows...do we now?

So in this tutorial hopefully you will learn on how not freak out and well basically groom your eyebrow girl.

I dont even want to count how many times I have said eyebrows in this post till now.

Anyway without further ado lets get started:

Things you will need:


1) Tweezer
2) Small eyebrow scissor or any small scissor
3) Mascara spooly
4)Vaseline
5)Brown or matching eyebrow powder
6)White eyeliner- not necessary but just to have a guide 
7)Pencil


Let's the grooming Begin:

Start off fresh clean brows. Don't you laugh on my bushy eyebrow....you also have them don't you ;D

Picture of untamed eyebrows

Grab yourself some Vaseline on your fingertips and apply lightly on your eyebrows, this way you will have a neat idea on the shape of your eyebrows and it will be easier for you to remove unwanted hair. This is the way that I find myself most comfortable as my hair are laying flat on my skin and its way easier it see what hair need to be plucked.

Step to get groomed brow




Now where do you Start? you ask....Get your self pencil and put it vertical from your nose bridge straight to you eyebrow, anything before this line should be plucked, grab your white eyeliner and mark this point so you'll have a guide remembered.

Now for the Arch your will slant your pencil and meet your iris outer edge- now this point will be your arch,mark it with your eyeliner.


The End would be the corner of your eye- again with the pencil slant it on the corner of your eye.
Don't forget to mark it.


Groom Eyebrows description

Now let the plucking begin .....

Firstly start with the stray hair that usually start well yes...they start from the eyelid area or pretty much close to your eyelids
...Annoying much...

what hair to pluck to get groomed eyebrows
Before
So we are going to get rid of that first so that we can then focus closely to getting our desire shape and not get distracted.
Below you can see the difference....


Groom Eyebrows step 1
After

Now with that being out of the way, now we will start with the shape.

With the same white eyeliner start drawing out your eyebrow and the shape you would like them to be like. Applying Vaseline again at this point would help also as it would again give you a clear idea on what you want to pluck out and what you want to leave in and it smooth everything out .

Below picture is just to give you a rough idea (excuse my bad Photoshop skills...)

Groomed eyebrows step 2

After outlining your desire shape then begin plucking outside the line (of course, no need to clear that up but just to be sure:D).
 I like big fuller looking brows so I am keep that shape but you can surely go with what you desire.

Here is the picture of after can you see the difference....I am sure I can...

 Groom Eyebrows finishing steps

Now fill the eyebrow in with a dark brown or a shade that is darker than you hair ,
 apply you clear mascara ,
add some highlight under the brow bone and you are good to go.

Groom Eyebrows final look
The Final Look

Grooming eyebrows at home may take some practice I remember when I first started grooming them at home it was a thing that I quite honestly didn't enjoy.

But after many time of practice and you do get a pretty good hang of it.
Just remember to go steady and slow and don't rush.
Go back far away from the mirror to see if you are liking the shape or aren't plucking too much of hair.

And lastly while plucking your eyebrows never look at the zoomed side of the mirror , you may pluck more than you want to.

Hope you found this post helpful and gave you a some new tips and tricks.

Let me know what you thought about this post as I love hearing from you guys.

Till then I'll see you on now on Tuesday with a new post surely.

Love Amna.
