FEBRUARY FAVORITES :)

I can’t believe that already two months of the New Year have gone by in a jiffy. And it is already March 2016. Hola my lovelies ๐Ÿ™‚ I had been busy a lot lately and couldn’t take time out to blog ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But after a two months hiatus let’s get back on track and let you in on what have been my Favorite products of the last couple of months. These products are the one’s that I have reached to mostly even when I travelled to Thailand two months back.

  • 1.ย MAC LIPSTICK PLUMFUL

Love this lipstick so much. I really like the texture and color of this lipstick. This is a lustre finish and very comfortableย on the lips. Non drying and staying power is pretty good. Can be easily worn in the Day time.

  • 2.ย ESSENCE COSMETICS SHEER AND SHINE LIPSTICK ‘ LIKE A PRINCESS ‘

Essence Cosmetics never ceases to amaze me. It is a very trendy and budget friendly brand and from where you can find a lot of useful makeup which hardly disappoints. I bought this lipstick in the month of December and when I swatched it, I instantly liked it. This is called a sheer and shine lipstick, but don’t be fooled, this delivers quite a punch. It has a very nice formula which can be best described as a marriage between a tinted balm and a lipstick. It feels extremely moisturizing on the lips. Tastes awesome ๐Ÿ˜‰ something like a berry. Leaves a sexy tint on the lips. Very pleasantly surprised by this product ๐Ÿ™‚ I wore this lipstick almost every single day in the past two months ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 3.ย BENEFIT COSMETICS HIGHLIGHTER ‘ MOON BEAM ‘

Benefit Cosmetics Moon beam is a beautiful golden apricot perfector. I have used this Highlighter more then High beam which is another awesome glam Highlighter from Benefit, more so because I feel this is a very subtle and diffused highlighter which gives the impression of a candle glow effect on the skin. It is not harsh at all or in your face kind of a highlighter and that is what I like the best about it. Sometimes, one doesn’t want to glam up and just wants a really natural and subtle look and glow, that is where this comes. It blends beautifully and is extremely build-able. One can even use a powder highlighter on top of this. Also, as you grow older mostly the pores become enlarged and this highlighter doesn’t accentuate that. Trust me. I have noticeable pores on my cheeks and nose. And it never accentuates it. Love this gem โค

 

  • 4.ย TARTE SCULPTORย

    Sculpting or contouring is all the rage nowadays. For beginner this sculptor by Tarte is very handy and good to use. I personally like this a lot as it is very easy to use and blends pretty seamlessly. Also, one can build on the product coverage. You can set this with a powder contour.

  • THE BODYSHOP BLUSH IN THE SHADE CORAL

Another favorite product from one of my Favorite brands. The Bodyshop baked blush in the shade coral is perfect for all year long. Come winter or summer. It has two shades in the pan. One is a coraly pink and the other is a pearlescent shade which can be used for highlighting. Now it can be worn both ways, either alone or mixed to give cheeks a healthy flush of color with a glow. Absolute gorgeous shade of blush and one of favorites ๐Ÿ™‚

My eldest sister gifted this blush to me and I have had a love affair with this blush ever since โค ๐Ÿ˜‰ This blush is so finely milled and looks so pretty on the skin. Not the usual Coral shade but more like a dusty Coral. I used this more in the day time and when my face needed a little pick me up. Because winters can make the skin sometimes look dull and grey. That is where this blush came in. I also like the brush that it comes with, perfect for carving out the cheekbones ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 7. STAGE LINE COSMETICS TRANSPARENT POWDEROLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I bought this powder as I desperately needed a translucent powder. On the salesgirl’s insistance I gave in and bought it as I had no other option and time. I didn’t expect much from this product. But I really liked it on using it. I specifically used this for under eye baking and it looked super on me. This product is also great value for money as you get 60g of product ๐Ÿ˜ฎ which is quite A LOT. This powder has a bit of fragrance but it isn’t bothersome. You can purchase this also from justforgirls.pk for Rs.1350/- by applying my discount code J4GMC5 you can get a 5% discount.

  • ESSENCE LONGLASTING ย LIP LINER IN PURELY ME

Although this is a lip liner but I like to use this to rim my lower lash line to make my eyes pop. It doesn’t smudge and one doesn’t need to sharpen the tip of the liner. Multitasking liner which needs to be a staple in one’s makeup stash.

 

  • RIMMEL EYE PENCIL IN THE SHADE CHIANTI

I have used this specific eye pencil so much and yet I don’t want to use this all up as it is such a unique shade of purple and brown and extremely flattering for someone who doesn’t have big eyes. Black kohl pencils can be too harsh at times for small eyed girls. As I medium sized eyes, I shy away from using black kohl because I feel it tends to make the eyes look small. My opinion entirely. Hence that is where this eye pencil comes. I like to use this below the lower lash line and sometimes for lining my upper lids. This is such a perfect shade for me. Doesn’t smudge and extremely long wearing.

 

  • LOREAL MYTHIC OIL

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

This is a true gem of a product. Depilex salon suggested me to use this after shower when the ย hair is damp or even dry. This is an extremely light weight oil. Lightly fragranced. This is an absolute MUST for me to use after shower. My shower routine is in-complete without it. It controls frizz and adds shine to the hair.

 

  • HERBAL ESSENCES NAKED DRY SHAMPOO

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

I color my hair and add red low-lights in them. If I shampoo a lot my hair color goes off quite fast. Secondly, my hair roots get oily by the third day. To freshen my hair up I use this floral dry shampoo. This has a fresh floral scent and doesn’t leave a white cast on the hair.

 

So this rounds up my Favorites of the month blog post. Hope you guys enjoy it ๐Ÿ™‚ Do leave a sweet comment or two. I appreciate it a lot.

 

Take care,

MAHA โค

  1. Hey, everything looks lovely on you, especially the lipsticks! ๐Ÿ™‚ I myself prefer MAC Cosmo as MAC Plumful is a bit too bright for me but it looks wonderful on your skin. Essence Like A Princess also seems to suit you, though again too bright for my preference. I have to say that pink is definitely your colour …I have yet to seen a pink lipstick shade that doesn’t look good on you ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, thanks for sharing, as usual, a great blogpost! ๐Ÿ™‚
