MUA Mascara in shade 6- Review

Hello pretty ladies ! weekend night right ? What are your plans? Well I guess I am going to sleep all this weekend as always:D. Well we'll see that tomorrow. But before that i just wanted to share this review with you guys . These days I am all into colors. Violet and Royal blue are the eye liner colors I use daily. They just add a bit of a spark instead of just plain black. After eye liners, I went after colored mascaras. I didn't find much in the market so i searched online and had just the thing I wanted . I ordered Makeup Academy's (MUA) Mascara in Shade 6 with few other products from MUA ( See Haul post HERE ). I couldn't wait to try it out and therefore reviewing it first :) Lets get started then.

The Product:

The MUA Mascara comes in variety of shades. I was looking for a blue one so I opted to go for Shade 6. The mascara comes in a plastic bottle that is opaque colored, same as the product inside it. At first i thought it was the product filled clear bottle but well its not . I Liked it actually because it gives you the right idea of the shade you are getting. It comes with a standard wand with comparatively soft hair. The product is very very thick you can see that in the pictures.

My Experience:

First of all, I must say my experience shopping with Just4girls was amazing. They are so kind and helpful and also they were very prompt in replying to all the queries I had. All the stuff was very neatly packed in a bubble wrap and thankfully none of the things were damaged :)

Now for the Mascara. You can see that the product is quite thick but that is a good thing as it makes the color stand out on your lash and you don't have to layer it up. Just one good swipe and you have really nice color on you lashes :) It stays about 5 to 6 hours on your lashes and even after washing you face its there. You have to rub it to get it off your lashes ( Not hard rubbing, just softly ). This makes it a semi-water proof mascara.

Here have a look at the Mascara on Lashes :)

Single layer-MUA Mascara( shade 6)

Two layers

I Like:

  • The color pay off is great. Single swipe shows the color instantly.
  • Does not clump 
  • Does not feel sticky or heavy on eyes. 
  • Stays on for a long time
  • Does not smudge or budge on contact with water.
  • A little powdery consistency that gives lashes a matte velvety look
  • Affordable

I Don't Like:

  • I like everything about it. There is absolutely nothing to complain about :D

My Rating:

I give it a 5/5. It definitely asks for full marks for all the amazing things it does in such a small price tag. It costs PKR 200/- and available at in Pakistan. It is also available at MUA store online. They ship to all the countries that offer paypal. All in all, I am totally in love with this mascara :)

Do you love colored Mascaras? What is your color of obsession these days ? Don't forget to comment below :)

Stay Safe xoxo

Rivaj Uk Eyeshadow Base - Review

Hello there! How are you all ? Having a lovely weekend ? I am here today with another beauty product Rivaj UK Eye shadow base. I have been hearing about eye shadow base and primers all over the internet ever since I started reading about makeup. I always wondered what it is with this base/primer thing that everyone is using and recommending it. Personally, I thought it was not something so essential so i kept on going without ever thinking of getting myself one. Recently, I got my eye on this primer, it was so cheap and i had heard really good things about it so I got it just to see if I was wrong . Well I admit, I was so so so wrong :D. Now lets have a look at this baby

The Product:

This product is from Pakistan's famous brand RIVAJ UK. Its was launched 2 or 3 years back and is now one of the finest and most affordable brands available in the market. I have tried quite alot of different products from this brand and almost all of them have always left me satisfied. This eyeshadow base is a new product from this brand & comes in a clear plastic bottle with a wand doe-foot applicator.The product is milky white and is sticky at first but then it becomes transparent when it dries off. You need to apply very small amount , so it tends to go a long way with you. 

My Experience:

I have never used or tested any other eye shadow base before so there is no comparison at the moment. For this product I found it working beyond my expectations !! For such a small price tag, it was hard to believe it would work wonders and for me it did ! The texture is smooth and sticky at first when you apply it, but dries off completely after a while ( Like 30 secs max) & becomes transparent. The your eyelids don't get sticky and eye shadow application becomes easy. It provides a smooth base to work up your eye colors. Blending is also super easy and smooth. All in all it is a great product specially if you are a beginner and want to try it staying in budget :)


You can clearly see the difference between the same eye shadow applied on my bare skin and on the eye shadow base. The base decreases the fall outs, intensifies the color and makes it last longer !!

Little Tips:

  • Don't apply too much product on your lids. Dot a little over and under the lid ans spread it with your fingers
  • After application, keep your eyes closed for about half a minute. If you open it instantly, your lid might stick with your crease (I don't like that :-/)
  • Wash with simple water to take it off. No makeup remover required.

I Like:

  • Odorless and colorless
  • Intensifies the eye shadow that I apply
  • Reduces the fall out under my eye
  • Keeps my eye shadow put all day long
  • Doesn't make eye shadow crease
  • Affordable
  • Easily available

I Don't Like

  • Takes time to dry off and makes my eye lid sticky 
  • Non-water resistant, instantly removes when gets in contact with water

My Rating

I give it a 4.5/5. I took off 0.5 just because it is not water resistant. Overall it is a great product. I am so in love with it and I am definitely buying it again as soon as this one ends or may be even before it ends :D. I got it for 200 PKR from a local cosmetic shop. You can find it easily on all cosmetic shops all over Pakistan or you can buy it from Eye Love Makeup on facebook, they deliver all over Pakistan :)

Have you every give it a try and compared its result with other eye shadow bases/primers ? Do let me know in the comments :) 

Love till next time xoxo

Aqua Cake Eye Liner in Black- Review & swatch

Hello pretty ladies !

Today I am reviewing Aqua cake eye liner in Matte Black. I have been using it for a year now so I thought I should do a review about it. Lets check out :)

The Product:

Aqua Cake eye liner comes in a clear plastic jar. The jar is completely stuffed with the product so its going to stay with you for a very very long time :D. It comes sealed so you cant look at the product at the shop but its colour pay off is the same as it look from outside. So overall the packaging is not much attractive but it does the job well :)

Don't mind the condition of the product, I am using it for over a year and that is all that got used up :)

My Experience:

My experience with this liner is a mix of liking and disliking but i never regret buying it. The color pay off is very very good and its very pigmented.There is alot of product in small price tag that is going to last for a very long time even if you use it daily !.I also use as a matte eye shadow
The only drawback of this liner is its not smudge proof :(. I have oily lids so its gets on on my crease very fast and is faded by the end of the day . I did a little search on this and found out that Kryolan is offering an eyeliner sealant to make this liner smudge proof. But the sealant is quite expensive as compared to the liner so I didn't buy it.

How to Use:

  • Dampen the brush with water and remover excess of water n the back of your hand
  • Roll the brush on the liner so that it enough product sticks to the brush
  • Now apply in your favorite style and keep your eye closed for 30 secs so that liner drys off completely.
  • If you are using eyeliner sealant, then use it instead of water and dampen the brush in it
  • Some people spray water directly on the cake, I personally don't recommend that as it makes quite alot of mess and wastes the product.

The Swatch:

I swatched it with and without dampening the brush. The only difference is that with damp brush the finish is fine. Here have a look.

I rubbed the swatch after a while with dry fingers and look what happened :(

I Like:

  • A lot of product in small price tag
  • Easy to use
  • Affordable
  • Long lasting
  • Very pigmented
  • Dual use-as a liner & as eye shade

I Don't Like:

  • Smudges fast on oily lids
  • Fades by the end of the day

My Rating:

I give it a 3/5 just because it doesn't stay on my eyes for long and smudges easily. If you don't have oily lids then this is the thing for you. Its perfect for beginners as in a small price tag you can get alot of product to experiment and practice :)

I got mine for PKR. 250/- from a local cosmetic shop with the brush. There is also another one that is for PKR 500/- as the shop keeper says its the ORIGINAL one.I have tried that also and there is absolutely no difference in the result.

You can have the look at the results in my EOTDs Baraat & Waleema lookMehndi Look,Lets Go Wild!!

Have you tried this eye liner ? How was your experince ? Do let me know :)

Belleme Eye Want You Cream Shadow in Carrot Cake - Review, Swatch & Look

Hello Girls!

Today I am reviewing Belleme's Cream eye shadow in Carrot Cake.

The Product:

Belleme is a Korean brand that offers all sorts of makeup products and tools. I must say, I have gone through their whole range and I didn't find  single thing that I didn't want to have,but sadly you cant have everything you want :(. Now back to the eye shade. The packaging is so so so cute that i fell in love with it even before opening. Every product has a unique packaging. The cream eye shadow comes by the name of EYE WANT YOU CREAM SHADOW in a small clear jar with a plastic lid ( you can clearly see that in the pictures. )

My Experience:

I read about this cream shadow in a few blogs and saw them raving about this. This made me curious and I got this one for myself just to see what it is actually like. The quantity is quite small that is quite a set back but hey look at all the great things we are getting in this tiny jar.The product is very pigmented and a little quantity is enough to work upon whole lid. It is easily blendable and staying power is very long. I swatched it yesterday and its still on wrist even after a shower. You have to take it off with makeup remover. It doesn't smudge on oily lids AT ALL(I have oily lids). So all in all I absolutely adore  it :) I have done a look using this eye shadow, you can check it Here.

The swatch:

I Like:

  • Colour pay off is great.
  • Staying power is very long
  • Smudge proof
  • Smooth and creamy texture that stays even after drying 
  • Gives a very luxurious look
  • Cute packaging :D

I Don't Like :

There is nothing that i don't like about this cream shadow. I will be getting more soon :)

My Rating:

I give it a 5/5. There is nothing you would regret if you get this shadow. I got mine ordered from Abbamart Korea. My brother lives there so he got me this ^.^ so I don't know the price. But you can order it online from Abbamart directly or from Lush Grooming Bargains-Smart Shopping hub for men and women on facebook.

Have you tried this or any other product from Belleme ? Do let me know. xoxo
