"Hair Care Routine"- My dry and frizzy hair

Hello girls! How are you all doing?
Today I am talking about my hair care routine! My hair is really weird, it is oily on my roots but super dry and frizzy all the way down( i have long hair) so this what i do to control them-

 So let's start:-

  • Dove nourishing oil care shampoo and conditioner-  My hair is really dry and frizzy and this shampoo and conditioner works really well to tame the frizz and even adds a bit of shine to my hair! On top of that it smells AMAZING and the smell seriously lasts till the next wash and i wash my hair every other day. The conditioner is quite thick and really helps soften my hair.
  • Dove Nourishing oil care hair mask- I use this mask once in a week when i want to give my hair extra nourishment and care. I put it in my hair and leave it in for 15 minutes while i relax in the bath! This mask really helps my dry hair look smooth and shiny and it has the same smell as the shampoo and conditioner.
  • Dove Intensive care Night treatment- I also use this treatment once a week when i wash my hair at night. I take my hair out of the towel and put this in from the middle to the ends and sleep with it. It does not make my hair greasy at all and works really great. It softens my hair, adds shine and my hair look healthy and nice! It does not leave any residue on the pillows and does not weigh my hair down at all!
  • Pantene 24hour frizz fighter leave in treatment-  So the other days when i don't use the night treatment i use this. It also helps keep my frizzy hair in-control and doesn't weigh it down. I put it in when my hair is damp.
  • Pantene repair and protect serum-  When i first opened this product and put it in my hand it was like an oil and i was like omg this going to make my hair super oily but No it did not! This is supposed to put in the driest parts of your hair which in my case are my tips. My hair was just towel dried when i put it in and it just absorbed all of it and did not make it look oily at all! So this is why i love it so much and use it everytime i wash my hair.
  • John Frieda Luxurious Volume blow dry lotion-  First of all this is not a lotion it's a spray! I use this when i blow dry my hair. I spray it all over my roots as it's a root booster and it giver tons of volume to my flat roots!
  • John Frieda Frizz-Ease Glossing mist-  I spray it all over my hair when I am done styling it to add shine and to control the frizz.
  • Osis Flatliner serum-  My favourite heat protectant/serum when I straighten my hair. It keeps it straight till the next wash.
  • Loreal Elnette Satin hair spray-  I don't know what to say about this but let's just it's my all time favourite hair spray. It keeps my hair in place all day especially when i curl it.

"Favorite Lippies for Summer"

Hello girls! How are you all doing?
When I started with makeup i was really afraid to try lipsticks as i thought it would never look good on me, so i just started off with the lightest pink lipbalms and well it worked out for a while but soon i started to eye those beautiful bright colored lipsticks on makeup counters and specifically Pink ones...My first lip product other than lipbalms was the Revlon lipbutter(Well I took them in the lipstick category but they are lipbutters) in Cupcake which is a really light pink color and I loved it. Then eventually I got sucked in the world of lipsticks and wanted to try more and more I own quite lot of them which are just pink or peachy shades yet because i'm still a bit afraid to rock a red lip!
I don't know why i had to share all that but still let's move on......

My favorite lippies for summer are:-
 (left)Rimmel lasting finish Kate Moss lipstick in No.16 AND (right) Revlon colorburst Lipbutter in Sorbet

Swatches-  Right rimmel lipstick and Left Revlon lipbutter 
So these beautiful colors are my favorite go to lipsticks in summer! The Rimmel lipstick is a peachy-pink color and has a great finish. It lasts for an hour which is a good lasting time i guess!
The next is the Revlon lipbutter in Sorbet. It was my first time trying a Darker pink shade and when i swatched it in the store i instantly said to myself i could be a bit more daring and try it out and this was one step further in the pink lipsticks collection! I can't say enough about the lipbutters, they are moisturizing ,give a glossy finish and are very well pigmented!

Well enough said for now! Tell me what are your favorite summer lippies?

I hope you guys like this post!

"Maybelline FIT me foundation Review"

Hey guys! Today I am doing a review on the Fit me foundation by maybelline. As I loved the concealer I decided to try out the foundation as well and let's see if I loved it or not....

I was a shade 10 in the concealer and when i went to buy the foundation they have this chart with the numbers that shows what foundation, concealer and powder will match your skintone, so as i was 10 in concealer on the chart it said to be 120 for foundation so i got it and it was a perfect match for me. It has a mix of pink and yellow undertones to it.
Now enough blabbing about the colour and more on the foundation....
It is a liquid foundation and has a really soft texture. As you can see the packaging is good and it comes with a pump so no wasting of the product which I guess many of us prefer. I use my fingers to apply or sometimes a foundation sponge but both work great for me as this foundation blends very well and gives a slightly matte finish but if you have oily skin you have to set it with a powder. The lasting power is amazing, it lasted a good 6 hours for me. It gives a light to medium coverage but you can build it and it does not look cakey at all.

Over-all I am really impressed with this foundation and would recommend everybody to try it out. I give it a 10/10. I would be trying out the FIT me powder soon and would even do a review on it!
 I hope you like this review!

"Colors of the Rainbow Tag"

Hey guys! So, today I thought of doing something different and it is the Colors of the Rainbow tag. It is a tag going around Youtube and also many bloggers have done it. I think it is a really fun tag, basically you choose a product (beauty or fashion) which you like, in the order of the colors of rainbow. But in this add pink and multi color is also added! So here it is:
 So, first is Red. I chose the Schwarzkopf osis+ Flatliner sleek. It is a flattening iron serum, it protects your hair from heat and gives a long lasting flat effect. I spray it on before using my straightener and it really helps keep my hair straight till the next wash and it does not get frizzy at all!

 For Orange I had to choose this nail polish by NYC which I did a post on Read it here. It is beautiful orange color which the camera does not justice on showing but i simply love it and had it on my nails for 2 weeks straight!

For Yellow I chose the Maybelline colossal kajal. It is the best kajal i have ever used. It does not smudge   on me and has a great staying power. I don't think i will ever use any other kajals since i have this now.
For girls living in karachi you can get it in Aghas for a really cheap price.

For Green I chose my everyday face wash which is The body shop Tea tree skin clearing facial wash. I have really oily skin with blemishes and occasional breakouts, I find that this really helps my skin and gives it a cooling effect.

 For Blue I chose this Freeman Anti Stress dead sea minerals mask. I love trying freeman masks as they have a wide range of it and this is one of my favorites, It really freshens my face as i use at the end of each week and all the dead skin goes away leaving my skin smooth and soft!

 I joined indigo and violet into one color Purple because i just don't understand the difference between these colors! So, for purple i chose the maybelline Master drama eye pencil in purple. It has a tiny bit of shimmer in it but when you put it on you can't see it as much. It glides on smoothly and does not smudge at all!

For Pink I chose the Rimmel Apocalips and I am in loooovee with this color, It is called Nova. This combination of lipstick and lipgloss is great and it has a good staying power. I t becomes matte after half an hour of application but i love that look on my lips. Everybody should try the Apocalips!

Here is the swatch of the purple liner, colossal kajal and Apocalips in Nova.

I looked a lot for a multicolor product but i serioualy Could Not find anything so i am just going to include a Picture of my quote frame! Sorry! 

         I hope you liked this post and i would love for all of you to do this and send me the link!

This is one of the nail polishes I showed you in my last haul. It is the NYC (New York color) Long wearing Nail enamel in 149 "Boat Basin", It is actually the name of area in Karachi, Pakistan so that sounds like weird name but still i love the color. It a bright dark blue color and even without topcoat it has a really nice shine to it. The formula of these nail polish is good but quite thick. But the good point is that it doesn't take a long time to dry. Over-all I love the color and this brand so far!

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer Review!

Hey guys! So, today i'm going to do a review on the fit me concealer by maybelline!

Lets start with a packaging which is quite the standard for a concealer and sleek to keep it in your purse for on the go touch ups! As for the concealer i use it to cover any blemishes or imperfections and it works great. I do not use it under my eyes as my dark circles are really dark and it makes them look grey so i just use it all over my face other than the eyes. The consistency of this concealer is not that thick but it's buildable and it's very pigmented so it covers nicely. The applicator is good as it gets small amount of product on it so that we can avoid the cakey look!

I am in the shade no.(10) Ivory
Over all i would give this concealer a 9/10 as it works great for me except for the under eye part!
                                                        So have you tried it??
