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

Sunday, July 30, 2017 Sidrah Beauty 0 Comments

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

Sunday, July 30, 2017 Sidrah Beauty 0 Comments

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.

 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.
