Must-Have Brow Products!

Brows should never be underestimated when it comes to a makeup look! I noticed I have never written about my favorite brow products. I don't usually try out anything new for my eyebrows since I've had these in my collection for a while. I always go for a soft, natural brow- shades that are cool medium brown would describe what I love to use. Here are my must-have cant-live-without eyebrow products.
BH Cosmetics Flawless Brow Trio
Shade: Medium

The first product that I've been using non-stop for about a year now is this handy kit from BH, the middle shade is perfect for my medium brow hair. It contains 2 powders and a wax. I usually use the wax on the gaps on my brows but since it's way too dark I try to avoid it. The darkest powder shade works SO well on the eyelids for a minimal makeup look. It blends very smoothly into a subtle eye look.

Price: $6.50USD.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade
Shade: Soft Brown

Pretty much the only product WORTH talking about for the brows, the cult classic that is coveted for many reasons. This pomade has been a life changer for me. This stays put! Unlike the wax in the BH trio which tends to move around on the brows, this pomade stays all day for a crisp brow look. The shade Soft Brown is perfect if you want a very subtle natural brow. It can be built up for a darker brow color.

Price: $18USD.

Rimmel Brow This Way Gel
Shade: Dark Brown – 003

To set my brow hair, this adds a little tint while setting them. I love how this doesn't feel stiff or too uncomfortable as some brow gel's tend to do. My only issue is that there is always TOO much product on the spoolie so I have to wipe off quite a bit. This only coats my brow hair, which I have a lot of gaps so this doesn't help fill them in.

Price: 485Rs.

[REVIEW] Tree House Cleansing Makeup Wipes

We all have those lazy days when we can't find the effort to remove our makeup. Thus comes the cleansing wipes which has made it so much simpler and hassle-free to remove your makeup. Also if you're traveling these come in handy!
The Cleansing Wipes from Tree House are a newer find for me, the only wipes I've used before these are the Garnier Miceller Wipes which always did a fabulous job of removing ALL traces of makeup. So how did this hold up? Let's find out! Cleansing Makeup Wipes REVIEW
Let's Talk About It:
The first thing I notice about any skincare item is how it's fragranced. I'm always sensitive to strong synthetic scents and these are definitely pleasant to use around the face! The first time I tried this out on my Instagram Story to demo the product I applied the new Loreal Lash Paradise Waterproof. This mascara has been the biggest pain %!# to remove, the only thing that removes all traces of it is with an oil based makeup remover but this wipe removed all traces easily. I usually place the wipe on the eye for 10 seconds to break down the makeup, this helps with any stubborn waterproof products!
I've really been enjoying using these and I would highly recommend it to those who want to remove makeup without any stickiness left behind, the Garnier wipes always feel tacky and I have to wash my face afterwards.
I'm definitely keeping these around for a while, I have yet to find a makeup removing product that doesn’t leave behind a sticky or oily residue. These are worth trying!

Love It:
Removes Waterproof Eye Makeup
No Sticky Residue Left Behind

Doesn't Dehydrate Skin

Price: 300RS

L'Oreal Smart Bond at Allenora Annie's Signature Salon

Recently I was invited by Ghazia of Allenora Annie's Signature Salon for a fun event with L'Oréal Professionnel Smartbond. A few amazing bloggers and celebs attended the event for a L'Oréal hair transformation. I got the treatment done and here's a peak into the event!
L'Oreal Smart Bond

What is SmartBond?

L'Oréal Professionnel Smartbond is a two-part, in-salon treatment that protects and strengthens hair during the coloring and/or lightening process, and is touted to brighten and soften dyed hair over time, whereas the in-salon (and at-home) Olaplex system rebuilds the damaged disulfide bonds (the stuff that gives your hair elasticity) that are broken during the chemical process.

The event started with a hair analysis by Ghazia to see what our hair really needed, glossing was offered as well so I went for a color refresh. I went for a copper tone glossing which shows very well in daylight. My hair was first lighten and then went for the glossing which they apply after washing off the lightener. 

After the glossing, the Loreal SmartBond was applied. The treatment made a very noticeable difference in the end result. My hair was blow dried and I was given a beachy-loose wave hair style. 
I absolutely loved the end result! I would suggest this for anyone who's already going in for a color treatment to add this service for softer and manageable hair. What do you think? The treatment is available at most leading salons that offer Loreal treatments. 


Drugstore Makeup Haul from

I've been on a makeup mist hunt since I've fallen in love with the MAC Fix+. I've been using it so often that I needed to find something to use on a daily basis. So I picked up a few random items from since they have a huge variety of drugstore products. Haul Freedom Makeup Rimmel Essence Makeup Revolution
What I Bought:
  • Essence Nail Polish 03 Crew Love Is True Love - Rs.167
  • Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer - Natural Beige - Rs.635
  • Freedom Professional Studio Priming Water - Rs.680
  • Pro Fix Makeup Fixing Spray - Rs.850

Makeup Revolution products that are know for being dupes of high end makeup. Their Pro Fix Makeup Fixing Spray looked promising when I looked up its reviews. It has a slight scent but works quite well. I haven't tested it out compared to Fix+ yet. Haul  Makeup Revolution Fixing spray review Haul  Makeup Revolution Fixing spray review
I was also intrigued about the Pro Studio Priming Water, I used his once and it definitely preps the skin to give a tacky base before applying foundation. This would be amazing to foil eye shadows. Haul Freedom Makeup pro priming spray review Haul Freedom Makeup pro priming spray review
The other 2 items I picked up were the Essence Latex Finish Nail Polish and my second repurchase of my favorite Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer. They currently have a few Essence products on sale on the site! It's so hard finding Rimmel in stock so I was very happy to see the entire range easily available on the website. Haul Rimmel Concealer review
 I love the consistency of the Rimmel Match Perfection concealer, it's quite quicker than the Maybeline Fit Me concealer that has been my favorite lately. The color match I prefer the Fit Me since it's quite peachy. The Rimmel one I can use for brighten

I'm eyeing a few Wet N Wild products on their website right now! Visit their website for the best range available. I just wish they offered free shipping!!

What's Inside

  • Colorpop Creme Finish Lippie Stix - Rooftop
  • Manna Kadar HD Translucent Powder
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow - Smoke
  • LUSH Outback Mate Soap
  • ORLY Breathable Nail Polish - Powder Packed

GlowyBox July Box Review Colourpop Rooftop Creme Finish
I love ColourPop Lippie stix, they are affordable and come in a HUGE range of shades. My box included the Rooftop Creme Finish Lippie Stix. The shade is a beautiful mauve pink color.
GlowyBox July Box Review MannaKadar HD Powder
I've never used any products from Manna Kadar before, another reason why this box is great for trying out brands that aren't easily available in Pakistan. The HD powder is smooth and silky and can easily be taken with you in your travel pouch.
GlowyBox July Box Review Anastasia Smoke Eyeshadow
Anastasia powders be it highlighters or eyeshadows are amazing! I'm thrilled they included an eyeshadow, it's very silky smooth and very pigmented. Can't go wrong with a deep brown in the shade Smoke.
GlowyBox July Box Review LUSH Outback Mate Soap
Skincare is a must when it comes to prepping your makeup. This is definitely something I would've never been able to try since LUSH isn't easily available here. The Outback Mate Soap is amazing, its a cooling gel soap that cleans the face so well without leaving it dried out.
The fresh minty scent has taken over my bathroom and I love it. This product is going to last MONTHS since you need a small amount to apply on the skin.
GlowyBox July Box Review ORLY Power Packed
Last but not least, my favorite pick from the box is the Orly Breathable Nail Color in the shade Power Packed. Its a very very opaque polish that applies like a dream. I've never tried any Orly polishes before so this was a treat.
