Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette Review

Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette Review

I had to hold this post until they have the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette back in stock. Also I’m just going to take a minute and pray that it doesn’t get sold out by the time I do end up putting this up. A review has to be an honest opinion and in all honesty I love and adore this palette. It’s everything that I needed in a palette. Unlike their liquid lipsticks this palette nailed it with me with absolutely no qualms.
I know this has been a controversial palette with mixed reviews and criticism over packaging and price point. However let me explain why I love it and why I think perhaps it’s not everyone’s cup of tea at the same time.img_5497-1

Retailing at $65 this palette is a splurge. The packaging itself is a very basic plastic palette with a clear top. The Huda beauty signature eyes in a dual effect cardboard casing does come covering the palette. To be honest you’d expect a better packaging considering its price point and rightfully so. Also the cardboard casing is something that in practically terms won’t last and I really wish it was on the plastic casing top instead because it’s super pretty and I want to have it permanent and hassle free part of the packaging.img_6717

I love this palette. It has to be one perfect palette and has all the perfect colors I have been looking for lately. Since the day I got it I haven’t been able to put it down. The colors are so versatile and there’s so many looks that you can go for with it.
However having said that I can understand why this palette had mixed reviews and why some people don’t like it. I mean anything and everything is subject to tastes and preferences at the end of the day.
This is a very warm toned palette with some strong reds and pinks. Everytime I look at it i see it as a palette for someone who loves experimenting, uses very warm bright colors and someone who loves the shine and bling. So for anyone who’s more into very subtle or monotonous shades and looks this palette can be overwhelming.

There is 18 shades in the palette including 6 foiled, 2 frosted and 10 matte shades. It’s very hard to find a palette in which you like all the colors and use them all but this is one such palette for me.img_6714

The shadows are buttery enough and blends beautifully. They are highly pigmented and the color pay-off it amazing. I usually start with less and build up to my desired level.

The foiled shadows give best results when used with fingers and they are gorgeous. I love how the two frosted eyeshadows glow with a lovely sheen-like finish.

Honestly, I don’t have much else to say about this palette except that i love it and have made 101% use of it ever since I got it.It has made my eye makeup time shorter by just making like easier with all the incredible color palette they have. The shades are amazing with ‘desi’ clothes and more everyday high street fashion and caters to any kind of eye look you would want to go for; subtle or over-the-top or somewhere in between. img_6716

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte lipsticks Review

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte lipsticks Review

The Huda Beauty liquid lipsticks are one of those things that you really want in your makeup stash thanks to all that hype and gorgeous packaging. When I bought it I felt very compelled to like it. I mean what can I possibly not like from this pretty bottle of lip paint.

Liquid lipsticks are something I have been very recently experimenting on. I like the general basic formula for liquid lipsticks although for some reason I stayed away from them assuming I may not.img_6237-1

The Huda ones have a very limited color selection but whatever they have are the best shades out their I believe personally. So selecting the colors was a task and how. On a totally unrelated topic the lady in front of me at the counter billed Huda beauty products up to £500+ and given how lust-worthy they are I couldn’t really blame her.

The full collection consists of 16 shades. The full collection is for sale at $260 and each individual lipstick is sold at $20 on the Huda Beauty website and Sephora.

I narrowed in on 3 shades; ‘BOMBSHELL’, ‘GOSSIP GURL’ and ‘CHEERLEADER.

The packaging has a very personal signature ‘Huda Beauty’ touch to it with the lip design on the cardboard case. The tube itself has a tempered plastic like semi-opaqueness topped of with a matte black plastic lid. The lip applicator attached is doe-shaped unlike the more general long curvy applicator. This gives precision while application and that’s always a good thing.

img_6427

Bombshell is a one of the most beautiful peachy nude I’ve seen. It’s a shade that is very versatile and will suit almost all skin tones. I feel like its got the right amount of brown, pink and peach mixed to create such an exotic shade. *I don’t know why I just called it exotic but you get my jibe right? 😉 *

Gossip Gurl is the quintessential pink. It’s girly, the right amount of pink and oozes femininity for the lack of a better word.

Cheerleader has to be the most exciting color of all. It’s a dark toned red. It looks amazing on the lips.img_6422

My favorite shade has to be ‘Cheerleader’ and my husband loves ‘bombshell’ on me and it’s such a beautiful nude to be honest. Gossip gurl although a lovely shade I just have so many lipsticks almost the same shade that I wish I got another shade instead. I wear it the least.

The formula feels really good, very opaque. With two good coats of the lipstick should give you a perfect coverage. Until the lipstick dries off the lips and settles tend to look a bit overpowering therefore I just let it dry up before I decide whether there’s too much or little on the lips.

As the product description says, it does dry matte and beautifully.

My lips are generally dry therefore I like to prime it beforehand to avoid cracks. The lipsticks are a bit drying awhile after application but that’s the case with most liquid lipsticks that I’m not sure if it’s me or them. *sigh*

However my only problem with these lipsticks is their staying power. I have tried all three at so many occasions in different ways but they just don’t stay put and that’s a huge turn-off for me. I like to be able to trust my lipstick to remain throughout whatever event I am at. I mean my lipstick always does, it never usually budge as I eat,drink and talk away. Although I have tried using them with my Huda beauty lip contours and various other lip liners it just doesn’t stay. I have even tried setting it with powder.

Have you tried any of these lipsticks? Do you like them? Are they on your must check out list?

January 2017 Book Haul

January 2017 Book Haul

As we close in on January I wanted to share with you guys my first book haul for this year. I’m very excited about it and can’t wait to read them all. It was a satisfying haul. Awhile back I had asked you guys on Instagram for some recommendation on books to read(you can still leave them for me in the comments. Love you thanks) which I have carefully noted away in my must-buy list. The thing is where I live I just don’t find all the books at my disposal, sometimes it takes some searching to find a place that sells them,

img_5970

I got myself 4 books during my last eventful trip to the bookstore and I am soo looking forward to reading them all. How I wish i could read all 4 at once *EEEK**img_6363

The first one that i went in for was ‘THE CHEMIST’ by Stephenie Meyer. I really enjoyed the Twilight series(I was in 8th grade, don’t judge) and although I never read THE HOST(I’m not the alien story kinda person) I really felt this one was up my alley. I am currently mid-reading this.

The next i picked up was something I was eyeing for awhile and heard such good reviews of. Also I have this inclination towards non-fiction because I want to know how some people did what they did. If there’s something life’s taught is that real life is that movies and fiction are based on it more than we would like to believe. I picked up ‘I AM MALALA’. Has anyone read it? Let me know how you liked it?

One regret I have is not enough reading classics as a child to a point of embarrassment that I intend to change that. Therefore I picked up this Jane Austen Volume II which comprises of three books; ‘Sense and sensibility’, ‘Emma’ and ‘Northanger Abbey’. I haven’t sadly read all three so cant wait to get to that.

The last one I picked up was ‘THE BOOK THIEF’ by Marcus Zusak. I spotted this randomly at the bookstore, had a strong intuition that it’d be a good one and bought it home with me. I haven’t watched the movie but if I do end up loving the book I might just catch up with the movie and ruin it for myself 😉

Have you read any of the book? Did you like it? What are you currently reading?

I am gonna go back under my blanket and start catching up with these books until then in the hot scorching tropical weather 😛

Have a great week guys!Xx

12 Beauty Favorites of 2016

12 Beauty Favorites of 2016

Better late than never! I have been to be posting this up for over 2 weeks now but my laptop charger broke and I couldn’t edit my post until I get it working.

A year has come to and end and we are more than 3 weeks deep into 2017. So I thought it’s kinda high time I post up my beauty favorites for 2016. 2016 was so many things but to me it was quite special with having to plan and plan for my wedding along with the pre and post celebrations. I spent the first half of the year using almost no makeup to very minimum of it since I wanted to prep my skin and let it breathe in preparation for the big day and the next half being decked up as much as one could. It was also the year I travelled a lot to so many different places and had the opportunity to pick up some interesting stuff. So I have a mixture of makeup and skin care products that I thought were worthy of being shared with you lovely people.

1. My Absolute Favorite Natural Matte Palette EVER!! The colors are basic, love the formula and I have hit pan on “honey butter” already. Read my full review on this palette HERE.
img_1724

2. This Highlighter/blush Compact Duo is Bomb!!! My love for anything gold and shiny is very deep and this just brings that out forcing my to walk out with cheekbones shiny as the disco ball. My full review can be read HERE.img_4483

3. Go-To Lipstick of the Year!! I am in love with the formula. Hands down one of the best ones I have tried. This mauvey-pink shade has been what I pop on every time I stepped out after my wedding with mostly no other makeup on. It just feels wonderful to wear.

img_1337

4. I have finally understood all the hype around the Naked 1 palette!! I use it more often than ever before (and I have had this palette for over 2 years) especially the left half since those are my kind of colors.
img_1333

5. My Santa Lip Scrub!! Click HERE for review.IMG_5386

6. My ALL-TIME Favorite perfume. I go through a lot of perfumes and I tend to always try new ones. However this Dior one has held my heart for a good eight years now ever since I found her. I wore her on my wedding day too and it was the best decision ever 😀 . Check out some of my other favorites HERE.IMG_0199

7. Glitter has always been my thing! However 2016 was a year that embraced it so much that I had as much fun with it as I wished. This ones my absolute favorite!img_1338

8. Dior does something very right with their perfumes. J’Adore has been what I have been wearing everyday out and about most of the year.img_1331

9. HUDA BEAUTY PALETTE!! I know this got the most mixed reviews ever but I love it, I love how easily usable the colors are and I love the different textures and formulas. Although this came out late in the year and I had it only for about 3 months it just has become such a favorite that I had to include it in the list.img_5497

10. I think I fell in love with Anastasia Beverly Hills!! I got this pan and I love the formula and how it feels. I have been totally been digging my makeup brushes into this even if I really didn’t need to.img_4160

11. Stila Eyeliners!! Can everyone just go get this and tell me how awesome its made your wing. I will be doing a full review on it soon. :*img_6235

12. When I first tried on Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipsticks I knew there’s no going back. My husband loved ‘bombshell’ so much I wear it like everywhere. I got ‘Gossip Gurl’ too but I wish I had gotten another shade since it looks too similar other lipsticks I have.

img_6237

What has been your favs last year? If you did a similar post, leave your links below so I can check them out.

Happy New Year guys! (better late than never 😀 )

Lush Holiday Haul

Lush Holiday Haul

Every year I try to pick up something from the Lush holiday collection. Last year it was the Santa’s lip scrub. This year it was some bath and bubble.
Choosing between these bars are so hard( first world problems anyone?). My coat was literally covered in gold glitter by the time I was done choosing and had clean it in the store itself so I don’t walk around like a Christmas decoration 😁
Anyways these are the cutesy bars I bought home with me…
img_5119

CHRISTMAS PENGUIN BUBBLE BAR

img_5132

How cute is this goofy guy!!! I did drop this guy into the water over the weekend and how much fun is he!

He is said to have Bergamot oil, Sicilian Lemon oil and Orange flower absolute.

SUNNY SIDE BUBBLE BARimg_5133The gold glitteryness transfers like ALOT! but then i still wanted it so I can mask myself in gold glitter because that is #goals :D.

This one is said to have Sweet Wild Orange Oil, Lemon Oil and Tangerine Oil.

GOLDEN WONDER BATH BOMB

img_5134This one is supposed to have orange and lime oil in them and true to that it smells just that. I love how that smells and really cant wait to try it out.

I’m starting to  think I have a thing for the citrus-y fragrance after writing up this haul. I mean the only bath bars I was tempted to take home in the whole selection has either some lime,lemon or orange in them. I think the citrus scent always makes me feel more cleansed for some reason I can’t explain.

Have you picked up anything from lush lately? Have you picked up any of the above ones? How do you like them?

Keep Smiling! Xx

Soap & Glory Soaper Spa Review

Soap & Glory Soaper Spa Review

Soap & Glory has been on my wish list for a while now but I just never could find a place that sells them online and ships to where I live. Therefore, it was in my list of to-buy when I was in London last month. I really wanted to try the brand out but I never really knew what products to try. I was looking for a new shower gel so I thought I would try theirs. Walking into boots(gosh people… that place is madness and they have everything!) this Soap & Glory Soaper Spa caught my eyes. One of the major points is how much value for money you get.

img_4836

The set has 7 products from the Soap & Glory Fruity-Floral Original Pink selection .

They consist of (from their website):

CLEAN ON ME™ Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel (500ml)

THE SCRUB OF YOUR LIFE™ Super-Smoothing Body Buffer (200ml)

THE RIGHTEOUS BUTTER™ Body Butter (200ml)

HAND FOOD™ Non-Greasy Hydrating Hand Cream (50ml)

HEEL GENIUS™ Amazing Foot Cream Marvel (50ml)

A HEADBAND

A SHOWER PUFF

And all this for only twenty pounds! How awesome is that! I mean some of their full size products individually costs like eight pounds.

Even if you wont use a product or two you could always give it away to a friend or family who would so that’s a con that can be actually sorted.

The packaging is super cute too. It comes in a pretty large hard board pink box with a clear front window.Im in awe of their whole packaging style, I mean how incredible is all that witty writings on everything. I live for things like this ❤

If you are someone like me who wanted to try out a few products from their line or want to gift it to someone who likes S&G I think this is a pretty incredible purchase.img_4835

Do you have a favorite from Soap & Glory? Would you purchase this or any other products from S&G?

Thanks for reading! Xx

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Copper Face Compact| Review

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Copper Face Compact| Review

Mac Cosmetics is on a roll. They are coming up with some really fab products and collections. They are putting in so much effort into packaging lately which is a very rare for MAC given how they usually stick to their classic no fuss ones. The Nutcracker collection that’s out and everywhere makes this fact evident.
This collection is just sooo beautiful I must say.img_4481

The packaging is a whole new thing and the range of colors and product is so feminine, young and everything I love in makeup.
I would have swooped up the whole collection if only I didn’t have 10 others of very similar shades.
The colors they’ve worked with are very feminine and very workable so it’s something you’d actually use after the whole hype has died down.
Quality wise I don’t need to say much when MAC is concerned since they always nail it.
However despite not really needing anymore makeup I could not resist picking up the Sweet Copper Face Compact from the Nutcracker collection which I decided to give you lovelies a review on.
Let me start from the packaging… The bright pink and purple packaging with the gold and black details is beyond beautiful. I’m more than impressed and in love with how pretty the packaging is. They’ve got this golden embroidery of the nutcracker collection logo on the compact top (see below!) and  how cute is that! 😀img_4482
Now that, that is out-of-the-way, let me explain a bit about the product itself.
This product consists of two gorgeous products: Whisper of Gilt and Pleasure Model. img_4483

You get 4.5g(0.16oz) product of each for $35.

Whisper of Gilt is an extra dimension skin-finish of a warm golden shimmery shade with a frost-like finish.  It is highly pigmented so always use with a light-hand.

The only reason I made this purchase (apart from the packaging of course) is for whisper of gilt. When this highlighter came out as a limited edition a couple of years back I couldn’t get my hands on them and somehow knew it would come back (geez, I need to get a crystal ball and try make a living with all this non-gross gut stuff going on).
This would probably be my first gold based highlighter and I’m pretty excited to try it out. I’m sure it would compliment my skin tone very well.

Pleasure Model is an extra dimension blush shade which is of a coppery shade with a satin finish. This blush reflects in five shimmering shades which gives out a metallic effect. It is a very buildable shade with warm undertones. Initially I wasn’t sure Id have much use with this one especially since I stick to my all time favorite blush which is a matte.However this one literally just blends into my skin and has a natural finish.

What’s in my honeymoon (travel) beauty bag!

What’s in my honeymoon (travel) beauty bag!

If you’ve been following me on my Instagram page you’d be aware that I just got back from my honeymoon, if you don’t follow me yet you should 😉

Anyways, one of the toughest decisions I had to make while packing was choosing the beauty products I need to take with me. Especially since it was my honeymoon I for probably the first time ever gave soo much importance to my beauty bag. With all the brain twisting decisions I was making in regards to foundations, lotions and other important bottles of wonder I thought why don’t I share it you amazing people so in case you’re having two thoughts about packing or leaving back something this might help. Also you guys give me some amazing ideas, feedback and advice that I can always use the next time I travel.

img_4270

1. Base
I usually carry my Chanel Aqua Vitalumiere foundation when I travel. It’s my everyday foundation with very light coverage. It comes in a perfect size for travel and is not a glass bottle so I don’t have the fear of it breaking.
I also carry the Chanel Vitalumiere in compact which is a substitute when I don’t want even the lightest layer of liquid foundation on my skin.
I don’t personally prefer a heavy face base of makeup when I travel since I strongly believe letting the skin breathe some fresh never hurt.

2. Eyeliner
I like winging everything in life and I wing my eyes with ease with my Benefit they’re Real push-up liner. It’s waterproof and easy to use so I carry it while I travel.
For the waterline I prefer something with the right amount of pigmentation. However the only one I had at home was my Marc Jacobs Highliner gel crayon, everything else I had run out of so I grabbed it. I’m looking to write a full review on this one soon.

3. Mascara
My bestie always told me to wear some mascara and flutter my eyelashes and how could I not take that valuable piece of advice as I pack for my honeymoon. I chose my Estée Lauder Sumptous Infinite mascara. It gives me the right amount of lash without having to mix it with another one.

4. Eyeshadow
While traveling a good matte natural shadow palette is ideal. I would usually opt for my Too Faced Matte Natural palette however I chose the Dior in sample size this time since it’s so much smaller and has all matte neutral shades.

5.Beauty Blender
This phenomenon known to mankind is what I swear by and I never go anywhere without one. Read my full review on the BeautyBlender HERE.

6. Blush
I obviously took my most beloved blush of all time with me. You can have a look at my review on the MAC Blush in Pinch O’ Peach HERE.

7. Highlighter
Because it’s important to highlight everything important so I could not leave back this limited edition highlighter from NARS.

8. Lipstick
I carried a few different lipsticks so I can keep changing my look everyday.

img_4290

9. The jump from summer to fall/winter weather never did good to my skin ever despite my favorite season being fall. I carried this travel size body lotion from The Body Shop in Sakura. Its one of the most important products you need to carry with you whenever you fly.

10. I believe if  there’s no lip balm in your handbag at any given time of the day, you are doing life wrong. So how can I not take one with me on the most important holiday of my life. With no one to compete it’s always my Maybelline Baby lips. 🙂

What do you carry when you travel in your beauty bag? Let me know in the comments section below.

Happy Wednesday!

Reviewing My Go-to Palette| Too Faced Natural Matte

Reviewing My Go-to Palette| Too Faced Natural Matte

Today I have finally decided to review my go-to, love-palette of my life. 😀 **fireworks** **because I am finally updating something** 😛

img_1725

The first thing I ever thought of this palette was how soft and buttery the shadows felt on my fingers and then I knew I’m gonna really really like this one. Me at Sephora is a very nerve-wrecking scenario. I mean I am usually smart(or I would like to believe) but every time I am at that makeup heaven (for the lack of a better word) I have my head spinning with lust that I forget my wish list and end up creating a whole new one on the spot ( y’all can imagine what that leaves me at).
I looked at the sample of this palette with puppy eyes at the already crowded counter and as I outstretched my arm to grab myself a palette, there were 2 other ladies who grabbed it at almost the same time as me. Thank god they had stock and these two random ladies and the salesperson saying “that seems popular” gave me enough reason to take it all the way to the cash counter and purchase this palette.
To be honest this has been the only palette I’ve never regret buying. I’ve used it so much that I might hit pan soon and that is a rare for me. The colors are so basic and in the real world that’s what you need mostly.

The tin packaging is very cute, the lingerie inspired design is chic and overall easy to use.

img_1724

The palette has 3 highlighter shades and 6 eyeshadows. All are matte shades therefore even the supposed highlighters can be used as you like.

Whoever is coming up with the names for the Too-Faced palette shadows needs to be high-fived like over and over again. I’d say give her(or him) a raise but I don’t want to be putting people in the spot here.
Anyways I love them.
There is almost no fall off, the shadows feel soo buttery I can’t get over it.
The palette is a combination of both warm and cool-toned shades however has more cool shaded ones. The pigmentation is really good but I feel the warm toned shadows have more pigmentation than the cool toned ones. However I really don’t mind that since I like using my cool-toned shades light-handedly.

My absolute favorite is ‘honey butter’ which is obviously also the most used shadow in my palette followed by ‘chocolate cookie’, ‘strapless’ and ‘sexpresso’. Such cheesy names by the way.

This is one palette that I can use more than half he shadows during one makeup look which is so versatile.

With the right many shades packed very practically into a light packaging of the right size, this one is perfect to carry with you when travelling too.

The palette comes with a 3-steps guide and is designed to give 3 different kinds of makeup looks; ‘Day’, ‘Classic’ and ‘Fashion’.

The price point is at $34 when I purchased it last year and I as far as I know it’s still the same.

Swatches

Top : Heaven, Cashmere Bunny and Sexpresso

Middle: Lace Teddy, Strapless and Risque

Do you have this palette? Is it on your wish list? What do you think of it? Let me know in a comment below. 🙂

Have a great weekend. Xx

September Book Haul

September Book Haul

I love reading, I love being able to get lost in an entirely different world. I love how I can drink every emotion the author pens down and I love that especially on a rainy Cody day with a cup of coffee. 😉
With all the wedding chaos coming to a halt, I have finally been able to busy myself in books in whatever free time I get. So I thought why not share a September haul.
img_1474
So my plan was to read a non-brainer, then a brain gripping story and repeat. #smartme

The first book I read was “Prada and Prejudice” by Katie Oliver.
I am not a huge fan of books in this genre but I’m not completely averse to them either. At the end, it all depends on my mood. The title sort of gave me the idea that the book had some inspiration from the “Pride and the Prejudice” and just wanted to give it a try.
The only reason I’m not a fan of such books is because in general there’s always a messed up girl obsessed with the fashion week trying to find a rich man to buy her everything she wants and I hate that. I love books with a strong female protagonist and a gold-digger isn’t one. Thankfully this book had a much evolved characterization for every character. It was more about growing rather than hoping. It was more about realizing you need to work your butt off to save yourself instead of waiting for someone else to do it for you. The author kinda did put in more than necessary sub-plot towards the end but nevertheless it was a good read.

img_1309

Good Girls Don’t Die by Isabelle Grey had me at that title.
I mean wouldn’t you want to know more about something like that. The style of writing is magnificent and so gripping. I love how easily the author lets you identify with the characters. Crime and mystery are my all time favorite genre and I couldn’t wait to finish reading this one.

img_1357

I watched the Confessions of a Shopaholic a very very long time ago that it’s making me feel quite old. I discovered Sophie Kinsella and her books a couple of years ago. Her books always make me laugh and I really like that. So I’m currently trying to make sure she makes me laugh with this one too.

img_1473

Last but not least is a book I have tried to read since I was in Uni. I had a copy of it for awhile and tried t start reading but with my busy schedule it was all in vain. So now I’m super excitedly looking forward to finally read “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” by Steig Larsson. If anyone of you have read let me know how you liked it…😊

This was my little book haul this last month. Let me know what your currently reading and some must reads that I should catch over the next months. 😃😃

Have a great weekend. Xx
