Maybelline Bloggers Meetup!

Thursday, July 25, 2013 Sidrah!!!! 14 Comments

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Ramzan. A few weeks ago I attended a Bloggers Meetup held by Maybelline to promote their line of Color Show nail polishes. I got to meet a few lovely bloggers from Karachi. Here's a look at the meetup!

The event was held at The Forum Mall where LOPAK's offices are located. They house L'oreal, Garnier, Maybelline and a few other brands. Me and Rabiyah of Rabeeyah's Blog arrived together because of the crazy traffic. Once we entered we noticed the gigantic displays of the new Garnier BB cream and artwork was displayed throughout their offices of various cosmetic brands. I absolutely adored the set up for the bloggers meetup, they had fun stands and gigantic Color Show Nail Polishes for display and nail polishes scattered throughout the room. They did an amazing job creating a fun atmosphere for the meetup. 

Hina and Wafa of Maybelline hosted the event. In attendance were Maliha of The Curious Red AliceNaimal of Peachy PoutNida of Glitter Smitter and Rabiyah. I absolutely loved meeting Nida and Rabiyah again after such a long time, it was also fun to meet Naimal and Maliha for the first time. Maliha definitely livened the bloggers meetup so I hope to meet these ladies again! 

The purpose of the meetup was to introduce the Color Show Range with included a nail art session by a nail art expert along with us doing our own nail art afterwards. They showed us a video once the meetup started about how the Color Show range was inspired by fashion week.

This was my 'omg Rabiyah's nail art is so awesome did she do that'!

This is where the nail art expert stepped in to help me.

The best part about the meetup was the goodie bag. It was completely unexpected to see my name embossed on the maybelline nail pouch. This is something that I can keep with me in remembrance of the meetup, love this! It's super cute and I'm planning to sew in pockets so that I can use this as a travel makeup case. I got the shade Pink Shock, which everyone loved this polish color. Its a super bright neon pink.

I had so much fun at the event, I'm happy I was invited to attend it and got to meet such beautiful bloggers. The Color Show nail polishes are available for 350rs. Check our Maybelline in Pakistan on Facebook

[REVIEW] Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray

Wednesday, July 24, 2013 Sidrah!!!! 8 Comments

A spray to make your hair feel like you've just hit the beach...the Soy Renewal Beach Spray by Sexy Hair is the latest addition to the Healthy Sexy Hair Line. Let's Talk about it!

SOY RENEWAL BEACH SPRAY creates undone texture that looks and feels like you’ve spent a day by the sea. Helps nourish, protect and heal hair damage with the power of Argan oil. Cures winter blues by giving your hair the look and feel of a day at the beach.

Spray on damp hair and let dry naturally or blow-dry with a diffuser for all over texture. Use on dry hair for detailing or to add volume to the roots without having to wet hair.

Let's Talk About It:
The spray is formulated for wavy/curly folks who want a bit of texture to their locks. With my wavy hair, I generally try to comb less to keep the waves in place otherwise they just end up falling straight. The Soy Renewal Beach Spray promises to add a bit of texture and to create soft beach waves. I really like the nozzle of this bottle, it’s easy to spray while it diffuses the product evenly.

The spray adds a bit of stiffness/grittiness similar to hairspray- kinda like spending a day out at the beach and you end up with sandy hair. I’ve tried this on damp hair and it didn’t work out as well as I had hoped, the stiffness felt as if it was weighing down my hair.

The ideal way to use this is on dry hair, flipping your hair upside down and spray the ends while bunching up your hair to create waves. It does add a little bit of volume to the ends of my hair, I didn’t like the effect of it near my roots since it didn’t do much. 

Overall this is ideal for longer/wavy hair if you want to add some texture to your locks, I’m not sure how this would work for straight hair types but this can be used as a light hairspray to hold in any curls.

Online shopping has opened up a portal to try out new brands, is one of thoes all-under-one-roof fashion sites with a variety of shoes, handbags, outfits for men and women a whole lot more. I really love the variety of items on the site and especially the sale section which I am always a sucker for! I got the chance to shop on the site with a giftcard worth 1000rs so I picked out a pair of Silver sparkly heels. While browsing on the site, I wanted to pick out a handbag but I couldn't decide on what I wanted. I like how the site mentions the size and dimensions of everything. 
After I placed my order, I immediately got a confirmation after about 10 mins. Then after about 2 days I got another call for my order to be shipped. The site mentioned that my order will be delivered within a week so I was surprised I received it within 3 days. I really like the quality of the heels, I have yet to wear them out. The size is a tad bit too big for me but they do have a return policy if you do end up with the wrong size. 

Overall know how to make your shopping experience as comfortable as possible!
