Inglot Stage.Sport.Studio Mattifying Loose Powder

Im not a foundation person.. i dont like the feeling of totally loading my face with too much makeup. I always try to keep it light and look natural especially during the day. Ofcourse there are some dramatic days and occasions which require a bit of overloading and colours but on a normal Saturday.. its just some blush, a bit of powder and lip gloss and im all set.

What i got here is a product that works so well for people like me - who wants just a tiny bit of coverage and something that helps beat the heat (Doha is VERY HOT at the moment!!) Its light and its comes in 3 shades. Mine is shade 33 which is the darkest. Its amazing.. the way it blends and the sheer coverage it gives. My face is shine free for quite a long time even during the hottest of hot summers! It comes with a powder puff applicator which is very handful. I usually use that to apply kinda pat loose powder onto my face and then i use my fan brush or my powder brush to blend it up a little and dust off the excess.

So there you can see - its a light brownish coloured powder. Doesnt come out loud or muddy.. be sure to blend it in very very well and you will totally LOVE IT!

Here's a video for all you ladies (like me) who want to know how to apply loose powder and what sort of brushes you can use. Do check out this video! Its very helpful and please do tell me your techniques below.


You can see i totally love love this product! Its easily blendable, gives sheer coverage. Does it job well! Love it! And YES YOU KNOW IM GOING TO SAY THIS LOUD AND CLEAR - ITS PARABEN FREE LADIES! SO GO GET ONE NOW.

If you are in Qatar and wondering where you can buy this one - Check out Inglot at Ezdan Mall. To stay in touch with daily updates and makeup tricks from Inglot.. Like their Facebook page HERE.

SKINMISO Pore Beauty Nose Pack (Trial Kit) and Some Carrot On My NOSE!

It was a pretty normal morning. It was actually a good morning because i didnt feel sleepy so i decided to catch up on my house chores and also some pampering. I thought i would add a layer of face mask and relax. I used my Soap & Glory Scrub Your Nose in it (which i have totally fallen in love with!) and had a good scrub. Then i thought i would use my nose pack and get rid of the blackheads too. Perfect pamper day isnt it.

So as you can see in the picture - this is a nose pack package which has 3 steps. First you got to use the white packet which has a nose pack inside. It looks like a nose strip but its not the sticky kind.. its a mask so its all watery and moist. Dipped in i dont know what. It comes with so much liquid in it. You got to put it over the nose for let it sit for 10 mins. 

Thats the nose pack AFTER 10 mins and you can see there is nothing on it. The pack just softens your nose and makes the blackheads and whiteheads easier to extract. So now we got to use the cotton swab and squeeze out the bad stuff! And here is where i went totally OFF! Too much squeezing (i can be overambitious sometimes!!) and ended up with a red nose. Yes i am sitting here right now with a RED AND PURPLE NOSE! haha.. i know. Its funny.. but i got a doctors appointment tonight and i do not want to look like a total dork. God WHY. And yes i lost my concealer weeks ago and never bothered to get a new one. No concealer and purple nose. I then remembered the eye shadow trick. Conceal using eye shadow. I actually read that on a beauty blog but never tried it. Desperate times call for desperate measures. So here i am holding my Front Cover Cosmetics Rainbow Palette in my hands. Looking at the shade - CARROT!

And yes i dusted it all over the purple areas and my nose looked normal. Wow! Well only for about 30 secs.. ok im exaggerating. It was all good for about an hour but after that the purple came back on full display. So ladies - my advise please get yourself a concealer. This eye shadow trick doesnt work at all. So finally i got my powder foundation out and dusted my nose in it.. and im all set for now. Waiting for my husband to come home and LOL on me. He finds such situations quite hilarious. Haha actually now when i think of it.. i do too. Anyways..


My nose is so smooth and soft. 80% of the bad stuff seems to have come off my nose. Looks like a great product. The only thing you got to remember is - DO NOT SQUEEZE your nose too much. Take it slow. And also EYESHADOW ISNT CONCEALER. IT DOESNT WORK! Its time i get some shopping done. And yes i still love my nose strips that do the job in no time.. but i think this product is a tad better since there is no pulling involved which on the long term is more kinder on your little nose. Dont you think?

[Outfit Of the Day and a Giveaway Alert] Roseo Heart Print Tank Top from Chicnova

Well YES I got my package! I ordered some clothes from Chicnova last month and i was totally obsessing over my PO Box the whole time. And yes i got my package and here we are! An outfit post. Hope you like it. And no i dont iron my clothes mostly. God im so lazy LOL. But is that a bad thing really?!

Its a pretty straight forward outfit. I usually like to take it simple most of the time. You will never see me totally dressed up.. though i would love to.. i guess i dont really take risks mostly. Which isnt always fun but i am trying to come out of that bit by bit. Usually being inspired by all you pretty ladies out there. Yes i am talking about you.

Its summer and its really warm so its an excuse to get all girly and pink. The highlight of this outfit according to me is ofcourse the cute leopard print on the tank top and yes the zippers on my jeggings. They are my absolute favourite pair.

Black Tank Top from Glitz
Black Jeggings from Glitz

So thats my outfit and hope you all liked it. Do let me know your ideas on how i can style these pieces in different ways. And i just noticed that Chicnova has a fun contest going on right now so maybe you might want to enter.

ELF Shimmer Gloss - Love

So i thought maybe i should finish up all my pending lip gloss reviews. There are a couple that i am trying out at the moment and here is one. Im not THAT into deep shades these days.. i have opened up to lighter colours and more nude shades which are great for everyday use. But then again something about this colour.. just makes me want to smile. 

Have a look --->

Isnt that the most beautiful raspberry red ever! I mean its soo cute.. doesnt look so dark or deep as the tube does. Thank God for that! Its a pretty medium pigmented shade that gives you just a hint of colour but isnt too light either. Which is really nice. With or without lipstick - this one looks really good. I love how i can use it during the day just to add some redness to my lips. Noone would ever know i added colour.. it looks pretty natural. And also can be used on top of your lipstick to add that dramatic shine. All red and bold. Love this one! If you ask me the bad side of it - well its really sticky and doesnt have a great staying power but it really doesnt matter. What do you think? Beautiful yeah?


Adds just a little tint.. thats how i like it. How about you?

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Crush

So yes i found it in Mr. Baby's toy box! Ah! He totally loves hiding my stuff :-) Babies are super cute yeah. They always do these really cute silly things that make you smile. Anyways i know EVERYBODY has atleast one of these and there are reviews all over the internet but ofcourse i had to review it myself and keep up with the trends. For once i did go out and purchase something that was hyped.. well by accident but STILL atleast im glad im wasnt too late. You know what i mean. LOL!

Its a really pretty lip balm tint. Chubby and cute. So easy to use. Just twist it up as you use it up. Though it would take a long time to finish this one. A little is alot in this case. Highly pigmented so just a swipe or two will do the job.


Smells minty. Very light though. You would barely notice the scent unless you smell it. I wonder if anyone else really noticed it. Well i always like to find out what my products smell like so ofcourse i dont miss scents that easily. Not a big deal.. just a little mint going on there.


Its highly pigmented. So even if you got pigmented lips.. this one would show up so well! No worries! I love how it comes on well like lipstick. Its bold and dark.

The camera isnt so fair to the colour.. it looks much darker and brighter on my lips. I think it depends on the colour of your lips but anyways its more towards a deep purple than pink. 


You cant obviously substitute this for your lip balm if you got any cracks or issues that need a proper lip treatment but if you are looking for some colour and moisture - this is perfect! Amazing for day to day use. For the right amount of moisture and adds loads of colour to your lips. Well its lipstick and a lip balm all together. How lovely is that!

Lasting power:

I think one of the reasons for this product to be a major hit would be the lasting power. It stays on for hours and hours. Even after a meal you can see the colour is still there. Fades a bit with all that eating and drinking but the hint of colour remains on your lips. Thats so awesome. You can touch up or just survive the day with just the hint of colour that remains. AWESOME LASTING POWER! 


Highly pigmented and lasts long. Moisturises well and keeps lips soft and smooth. Well the only thing you need to keep an eye on is which shade you are going to buy. This one here is ofcourse a bit too much for me for daily use. Its too bright.. well im not so into such bold deep colours so i guess i need to go get myself a nude colour for everyday use while this one will be perfect for a special night. What do you think? Have you tried these?
