Lipsticks #FavSeries

Image
Being a makeup addict, I have tried a lot of lipsticks over the years and have my favs.
Today, I thought why not share them with all of you!  Let's start a #FavSeries shall we?
Lumiere by Colorpop Lippie Stix The colorpop lippie stix are a great deal for extreme colour, read my in-depth review of lippie stix.
Cashmere By Lime Crime To say I'm obsessed with this lipstick would be an understatement. this is my go-to fav liquid lipstick. It goes amazingly with every outfit and compliments medium skin tone really well. It goes on velvety and stays for at least 5 hours straight and doesn't come off while eating. It's one of those hydrating liquid lipsticks. It's just plain amazing. You can easily layer it with a mauve lipstick and it will form a gorg shade.
Red Pomegranate by The Body Shop This is the best lip stain out there and it works great as a cheek stain. Just dab a little on and you are good to go.  Tryna get my hands on the other shades as well.
Berry Blush by L&#…

let It All Go! #2017

2017 was definitely the year of growth and hardships for me. This year turned out exactly opposite of what I thought it would be.The beginning itself wasn't right, I fought with my best friend on the very first day. 
The next three months passed by writing my board exams. Ugh, that was a really tiring process but fun too. Those months were actually the good ones because what came next was a disaster. I didn't pass my boards because I had skipped my SA1s due to personal reasons. Which then resulted in me being kicked out of my school. This was the hardest part because all my friends had gotten in and I did not. It hurt so bad because they called only to ask if I got in and when I said I didn't, none of them ever called again. I had kinda lost my hopes there, I didn't know what life had in store for me. Everything was a mess.
But I didn't lose my balance, I gathered all my courage and hopes and didn't stop trying to get into a good scho…

How To Avoid Procrastination

Image
Procrastination is something we always tend to do, in the end, we always end up regretting it and wishing it we had done the task earlier. Laziness is one of the main reasons we procrastinate, but just imagine finishing the task ahead of time and then relaxing while everyone is running around trying to get it done.
Here are some tips to avoid procrastinating and getting your job done :

1)Get up 
Stop thinking how nice it feels to just sit and relax at this moment. Just prepare your mind to get up and get the job done because you’ll feel way better after doing something productive rather than sitting and doing nothing.

2)Put away all the distractions
Shut all your electronics and keep your phone away from you the farther your phone is, the lazier to you are to get up and get it. Log out of all social media apps that distract you. 
>Quick hack you can download an app that restricts you from opening a site or app for a certain period of time.

3) Reward yourself
Keep a reward for yourself late…

My Daily Skincare Routine

Image
I have combination skin that is prone to acne. It gets a little oily in the T-zone through the day. This is my daily skincare routine that I follow to keep my skin free from breakouts and healthy.
As soon as I wake up I drink a glass of water and then I go ahead and wash my face with the best smelling facewash ever that is the Face Soap and Clarity Vitamin C Facewash by Soap and Glory. I swear by this product. It really cleans your face and the citrusy scent is refreshing in the morning. It really wakes me up.

With that over I go ahead and tone my face with Tea Tree Toner from The Body Shop and then I apply the witch hazel and tea tree blemish stick from the boots' witch hazel range, it helps in clearing blemishes and preventing breakouts.

If you struggle with combination skin like me this moisturizer should work fine for you too which is the No7 beautiful skin daily day cream.
I always apply tea tree oil on my zits before applying moisturizer, it helps in calming the skin and th…

Best lipstick in the world for only $5?!

Image
I was recently looking for new nude lipsticks, well the hunt never ends does it? I just love purple toned nudes they just seem to compliment every outfit and not to forget they always brighten up your look.
I’ve heard so many YouTubers rave about colorpop's lippie stix and liquid lipsticks that I finally decided to purchase one for myself. I was not at all in the mood for our trendy liquid lipsticks.I wanted something lightweight and easy to wear so I direct jumped to the lippie stix section and oh my god their colour range is just WOW! And the amount of finishes they have is just amazing and only for $5 like is this some kind of heaven made for broke makeup lovers like me?
At last, I found my perfect purple nude and two more colours, yes I got carried away obviously. To say I was happy would be an understatement. I was overjoyed. Enough said let's swatch it.

I purchased three colours Lumiere, Grunge, Brink. My fav has to be Lumiere and grunge. First of all, all three of them …

Highschool Relationships Are Overrated?!

Image
Highschool relationships. Oh, how we loved them! Not having a crush in high school was considered the weirdest thing ever because everyone is on their highest level of hormones. When you look around the corridors, you'll easily identify couples. They're either holding hands or doing something coupley. HS in real life is nothing like in movies and books, you don't find the love of your life there usually. The bad boy doesn't fall for the nerd and seriously who even came up with this idea, there are no bad boys for god sake. 

Highschool Relationships are so overrated that you'll feel like you need to have a boyfriend/girlfriend or else you didn't really live during high school. But no, it's not like that. You're here to gain education and not to find an ultimate soulmate. Don't stress yourself over trying to impress someone and getting them to date you cause trust me eventually Y'all will break up and it won't matter to you much in near future.…

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation Review

Image
I had been wanting to grab this foundation for a long time now but never really got around to purchasing it. I was at Boots and they had 25% off , what better day to buy it then? Its available for 8.250 KD ( £9.99 ) .
 It claims to give ur skin a radiance boost and leave it looking flawless up to 16 hours! Its enriched with a fruit therapy formula to enhance your complexion. It is enriched with crystalline pigments to even out the complexion while letting it in the natural light for that healthy looking glow. Its soft, fresh texture easily blends into the skin for a comfortable flawless finish that lasts up to 8 hours.

In my opinion, it doesn't last up to 16 hours but its a really good formula and it smells heavenly and has a medium coverage but it's totally buildable formula. Coming to the formula it is what it claims soft and fresh. It melts into your skin without much effort. I use a beautyblender but I feel it would work better with a brush. It lasts upto 6 hrs without pr…
