Luxurious lips with M.N luxury Lip Gloss - Review

Sometimes less is more. Sometimes even the more you get, the less you feel. Same is with me these days. I am kind of obsessed with liquid lipsticks only God knows why. For that I have tried every single one I could get my hands one whether I am out for grocery or for shopping or stopping by a food point. If I spot a liquid lipstick, I have to have it. So, this one today is also one of the liquid lipsticks I have. Let's have a look as how luxurious does it make you feel. 

M.N luxury Lip Gloss :

Provides a hint of luscious , luminous hint of color . No color bleeding or sticky tacky sensation. Binds in moisture to keep suppleness.

My Experience :

M.n Luxury Lipgloss 

This lip gloss comes sealed in a pack after with a clear side so you can see if the shade is the one which you have chosen from the testers which is a good point because the numbers are usually stickers and they tend to get misplaced which results in extremely bad mood when you open it up at home and shade comes out totally different from the one you chose at the counter. The tube itself is clear plastic with a standard doe foot applicator. The product is kind of thick, with a texture leaning more towards creamy side rather than runny. There is a tinge of smell. I don't know how to explain it but it sort of smells like a standard lipgloss smell that lingers on for a few minutes. 
now for the application. This is a tricky part because as I have said the texture is creamy and its thick as well, so LITTLE IS MORE here. Just get a little bit of the product and spread it evenly on your lips and let it dry for a while. Do not smack, i repeat DO NOT SMACK your lips during the drying because it makes it all blotchy and patchy. Once its dried it gives a gorgeous velvety finish, not the typical dried out parched lips but a gorgeous smooth creamy look to your lips which looks absolutely luxurious!! Oh yes, I was disappointed at first and didn't like to have it on my lips because it felt all heavy and took forever to dry but then I tried a thin layer and voila! Magic was there.

As for the lasting power is concerned, it lasts a pretty good 4-5 hours on me without eating and drinking. If you eat it depends upon the food, like if its oily the lip gloss will be removed fast, if its just a snack munching, it would last its usual time. After that it starts to fade form the inner side of the lips and in the end you are left with only lined lips. Yes its sad but its true :-( 
Moreover if you tend yo rub you lips, it starts getting flaky after a while and falls off. But i guess if you get rough with any liquid Lipstick it will finally give up, don't you think?
overall, I found this lip gloss to be tricky but treaty at the same time. Once you get the hang of it, you can go on flaunting those velvety lips everywhere.

M.n Luxury Lipgloss Shade 20:

This is a perfect Rose color that has a hint of pink . Might appear darker if layered up . This is a Single swipe across my arm and also a single thin layer on my Lips . You see how highly pigmented and even the application is ! 

Thumbs up for:

  • Sealed tube very time you purchase 
  • Affordable 
  • Sturdy packaging 
  • Travel friendly 
  • A huge shade variety to select from 
  • Gives a lovely velvety finish 
  • Doesn't dry up lips 
  • Good lasting power of 4-5 hours straight 

Thumbs down for 

  • Availability might be an issue 
  • Application is tricky, if you get a thick layer it will dry late and will flake off early. 
  • Smell might be a problem for a few people. 
  • Tends to fade from inside without leaving an even stain. 

My Rating:

I give this baby a good 4/5 because the finish is to die for! Not even a single lipstick be it liquid or tube type, gives me this finish. I am absolutely a fan of m.n luxury lip gloss and definitely adding more colors to my stash soon! 

Price & Availability :

M.n luxury lip glosses are available on local cosmetics stores nation wide for the price of 250-350 Pkr. I got mine from a Facebook page  BEAUTY TIPS. 

Good news for everyone around the globe as they ship within Pakistan and Internationally all over the Globe! 

Have you ever tried this lip gloss by m.n? Do you have any lipgloss that gives the same finish? Please let me know in the comments below because I love the finish it gives!

OLAPLEX Hair Treatment :Launch and Bloggers Meet & Greet -Lahore

A little while back I started live streaming from an event I attended , do you guys remember that ? of course most of you do because I never live stream from an event ,only God knows why . Well that event was for the launch of OLAPLEX Hair Treatment System In Lahore. It was not very long ago when OLAPLEX came to Karachi and some of the worthy bloggers out their loved it !
So when I got the opportunity to attend its launch event in Lahore ,it was an evening to remember !!Why ? Read over to know all the details and do check out my hair transformation ;)

What is OLAPLEX ?


Go Blonder. Push the envelope further without compromising the integrity of hair. From the photo shoot to the salon chair, colorists are set free from the fear of damaged hair.
You can use Olaplex as a tool or a new service. The choice is yours. As a tool, use the Olaplex Bond Multiplier No.1 adding it to lightener or color and finish by applying Bond Perfector No.2 after color is rinsed from the hair to dramatically reduce breakage with every color service.
Optimize Olaplex by offering it as a new salon service. Include the professional Hair Perfector No.3 Take Home for your client to use once a week to strengthen hair further or to use as a pre-treatment to a future chemical service. Hair Perfector No.3 Take Home has amazing additional benefits reported by thousands of clients.


The ORIGINAL chemistry that multiplies bonds and cross-links broken bonds. There can only be one!
We started by finding two of the world's leading PHD's in Materials and Chemistry that had never worked on hair products before, Dr. Eric Pressly and Dr. Craig Hawker. With this fresh outlook, this dream team invented a single ingredient chemistry, that is free of silicone or oils, that links broken bonds in the hair during and after chemical services making them stronger than they were before. It may all sound like the same old mumbo jumbo, but check out what top colorists are saying about Olaplex all over social media. As they say, the proof is in the pudding.

My Experience:

A little while back I was invited to an exclusive launch of OLAPLEX in Lahore. I googled as to what on earth is OLAPLEX . It came out to be a hair treatment and to be used while going blonder or having drastic changes, I was pretty much anxious as I am kind of oblivious to chemical treatments to my hair . No ,my hair are not in the best condition nor I am doing home made regimens .I am a lazy bum when it comes to hair because I can't wash out the oil ( Confession finally) . But still no hair treatments . Leaving all this to one side , I went to event which was being held at Ali Teiseen Salon ( visit HERE). The ever gorgeous Amber from Pitch Media Inc was there to greet us all. After a bit of chit chat and warding off the effects of Hot and Humid Lahore ,finally the event began . Ali Raza ,the senior stylist at the salon , gave us the introduction and a lot of insight about Olaplex. Ali explained that OLAPLEX links broken bonds of the hair into one which is why hair doesn't break no matter how harsh the treatment being done might be. 
After the brief intro , the application of OLAPLEX was demonstrated on a model . The results came out just fantastic !! No joke , no lies babes I MEAN IT !

Still being the skeptical me , I took a leap of faith when Amber asked if anyone of us wanted to try it for ourselves yours truly was the 1st volunteer (wohoo! ) . Now let the pictures do the talking and I won't be neeeding a word to write :D

Before & After the Olaplex treatment 

Voila !! see the magic 

so you see what a huge difference it made to my hair ? My raving wasn't for nothing ! previously ,as you all can see ,my hair were all dull , frizzy and had a rough texture due to no proper care (thanks to my routine ) . When the blow dry was complete ,my hair were all shinny, smooth and soft . It took me a while as well to recognize myself as well :D All in all ,I simply loved the treatment . If you want to get it done , take no time and head over to Ali Teiseen Salon, Lahore and get it done ! I have linked their facebook page earlier so may ask for appointments and consultations . Trust me you won't regret ! 

Oh and finally , we all were given a goodie bag containing Olaplex Treatment No. 3 ,The Hair Protectant , to take away and take care of our treated hair at home ! I have used it and it leaves my hair smooth all over again !

The No.3 Of Olaplex Treatment for us to take home 

At the end I would like to thank Pitch Media Inc. for arranging such a lovely and refreshing for us all . It was a break from the dull routine and makes it better to know all the pretty ladies behind those amazing blogs we all love to read ! 


Stay Blessed

July favourites

So I missed the March and June favorites post, thanks to my health and yeah a partial thanks to the annoying Internet. I swear, I hate wired interenet now to the core of my heart seriously!  Well it's supposed to be a FAVORITES post, not a HATE post, so getting back to that. I have been using quite an assortment of products for past 3 months now, with a few hits and some misses. Most of hits have been the ones which withstood this scorching heat of Lahore! Since the list is quite long, I took only a few to be listed here and kept the rest to be posted later on.

1. L'oreal Nude Magic Liquid to Powder foundation:

I got this foundation totally on a whim because it was summer already and I wanted a really light foundation to wear on daily basis . Its been 3 months now and I am happy with my purchase . The formula is runny that sets to a really demi-matte powder finish which looks totally natural. Stays for about good 3-4 hours after which it gives in to sweat but still I am totally hooked to it ! 
(Review to be published shortly)

2.Elf studio Mineral eye shadow primer :

This eye shadow primer has been compared with many high end brands repeatedly over the internet and to be honest it performs really well ! i have been using it for a couple of months and I am totally satisfied . It keeps my eye makeup in place for a good 5-6 hours without budging or creasing or even fading ,not to mention how bright it makes my shadows look ;) 

3. Butterfly cosmetics perfect makeup base :

This makeup base was a favorite of a fellow blogger Bia from The Beauty Finds. After bugging her around for a few days ,I decided to pick it up and I wasn't disappointed. I use it alone to mattify my face during day or even under a foundation for a smoother look . Not the best out there ,but for the price its decent enough to make it to my favorites list !

4. Bh cosmetics 10 piece Eco brush set : 

During my wedding haul , I finally realized that its time I invest in some decent makeup brushes and I picked up this brush set during a sale . Ever since then ,I haven't thought of getting more brushes because its such a complete set that caters to all my eye and face makeup needs !

5. Wet n' Wild Megalast Lipstick - Rose Bud:

When everyone starts raving about a product ,I can't control myself from buying it , not for the sake of product ,but for the sake of knowing what is all the hype about ! So, I got this as a part of the same theory and I am pretty much liking it . The finish lies somewhere between semi matte and satin and lasting time is as long as 6-7 hours straight ! The color is a beautiful rose that I love . Its been my go to lipstick ever since I got it . 

Here goes my July Favorites in a nutshell . A few product reviews are under process and will be published in the coming weeks. If you have a special request or a query feel free to talk to me . I am leaving my social media links below :
