Bourjois Effect 3D Lip Gloss 3 Rose Idyllic and 44 Canelle Unic-Review, Photos, Swatches




Result: I've only tried a few products from Bourjois and happy with the quality they are. I've already reviewed the Effect 3D lip gloss in Beige Elastic (review here) and gave two more shades a try. First is no. 3 Rose Idyllic, which is a very sheer pearly pink. Its formulation is water based and has more of a pearl or metallic finish to it and I didn't kind of like it because, I feel it is more suitable for fair skin tones, as it gave me a dull feeling when I tried it on. But if you have medium skin and still want to go for it, it's better to mix it up with another shade and wear.

Second is no. 44 Canelle Unic which is a beautiful brown shade with red undertones. It felt like, it's more of a lip stain than a gloss. That's how it applies (streaky) and the finish is sheer as compared to the color appearing from the tube. It's a must have for girls with medium to dark complexions and is great for day wear.

Now what's similar between both glosses is:
  • The packaging. Acrylic tubes with gold tops.
  • The font on the tubes fades away gradually.
  • A narrow application brush.
  • They soften the lips and create a plump.
  • They smell fruity.
  • They last hardly an hour (which is disappointing).
The Bourjois Effect 3D Shine Lip gloss comes in 16 shades. The bottle contains 7.5 ml of the product.

Rating: 3.5/5





Price: Rs 500/- to 900/-

Available at: You'll find it online at Just4girls and Emporium Cosmetics and locally, you'll find these at Naheed's. Prices may vary though.

Official Website: Bourjois UK , Bourjois (France)

Conclusion: If it wasn't for the staying power, I would have given these glosses a better rating. There's nothing bad about them otherwise. Recommended? Give them a try.

Illamasqua Concealer CC 200-Review, Photos, Swatch



Result: It is meant to "cover blemishes and problem areas to create beautiful skin that feels smooth and looks flawless", as stated by the company on the back of the product. Well, I sure did put it to a hard test and yup! It worked just like UC 200 worked under my eyes (review here).

Nail Polish-A little this a little that!


Nail Polish has been a trend for generations. All that's happened is that nail polish has only gotten better and better with the inclusion of striking colors, shimmer and of course the popularity gaining-nail art.

Below are some of my favorite colors and ones I think every girl should have. The best colors are the ones that bring out your personality. I'm not
at all crazy about nail polish, but I do wear it a few times a month and have a decent collection. Today, I'll be talking about some of my favorites and ones worth a consideration. Let's roll...

OOTD-Pink with a dash of Gold



I bough this beautiful 3 piece outfit from Junaid Jamshed in December 2012. Didn't really wear it until about a few weeks ago. At first I was kinda nervous about the color, as it is true pink with red undertones (I hope that made sense). But after I wore it, I pretty much was satisfied with my choice.

Brands in Pakistan Offering Loyalty Cards/Memberships/Discounts


This trend has recently taken a troll in Pakistan. Brands looking for customer loyalty and goodwill are trying out different ways to keep a hold of them as the competition in the industry is at its peak. I didn't know much until I started receiving loyalty cards at different stores. I'm gona share the ones I have and what exactly do they offer.

How to make Lipstick stay on for longer


Finding a lipstick that stays on from 9 to 5 will be much of a miracle for me. Despite of all the technological advancements today and huge claims of up to 12 hours of stay, cosmetic companies have still failed to fulfill the promise.

Fashion Haul-Stylo!


I stopped by at Stylo, Zamzama yesterday to shop for a pair of shoes. Since, Spring has already arrived, I had no reasons to get boots, but I guess they've kind of become an addiction.
