Sephora comes out with brilliant Sephora Favorites value sets each year- ranging from lipsticks, eye makeup and skin care. One of these is the annually released “Give Me Some Nude Lip”, and they have recently released the set for 2017 – and we are hopelessly in love with it!

Unlike the 2016 Give Me Some Nude Lip set which focused on latte and true nude tones, this year’s picks focus on rosy nudes. Let us show you what beauties are packed into this beauty below!

Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip – Flash/Under light

Estee Edit – Barest Contour Lipliner “In the Buff”, cool rosey taupe, satin finish

BITE Amuse – Bouche Lipstick in “Honeycomb”, nude

HARD CANDY GLAMOFLAUGE MIX IN PIGMENT MAKEUP DROPS – REVIEW

HARD CANDY GLAMOFLAUGE MIX IN PIGMENT MAKEUP DROPS – REVIEW

Glamofy yourself – I am the kind of person who is very particular when it comes to applying foundation. You’ve got to select the right tone, the right texture,  (something that doesn’t makes your face look too oily, or too un-natural); I’m sure most of you girls out there understand the pain of selecting a foundation, it can get wayyy too tricky.

It’s not always easy to apply foundation every time you leave the house neither safe to the skin but with Hard Candy’s Glamoflauge pigment drops I can literally leave the house looking flawless every time. With an array of 12 different shades, you can never get wrong in selecting the one that compliments your skin tone.

The Hard Candy pigment drops actually help you in creating a customized foundation for yourself. These drops come in a small 0.5 oz dropper bottle but as the formula is a thin consistency and are highly pigmented, they’re not required much. And the best part is that you can keep on adding these drops to your moisturizer/primer or foundation until you’re satisfied with the kind of coverage you want to achieve, whether it’s a natural finish or a heavier base.

The Hard Candy Glamoflauge mix-in pigment drops are exclusively available on www.just4girls.pk. Add these to your make-up kit and I’m sure you will not be disappointed.

NYX Lip Lingerie – Ruffle Trim

NYX Lip Lingerie Review- Ruffle Trim

liplingerie12new

Hey ladies! I think you all have figured it out by now, that lipstick is my favorite makeup item. It’s amazing how one small tube can morph your whole look. It’s wild how a daytime outfit can become a nighttime outfit with just the swap of a lipstick and nothing else. You may have noticed in my previous blogs that 2016 was the year of the nude lip, and 2017 is no different, as the trend continues to reign.

My choice of the best nude lip colors goes to NYX Lip Lingerie line. The Lingerie’s are more pigmented creating fuller, 3-D look, unlike their Soft-Matte Lip Cream line, which leaves more of a stain.

I love a daytime matte nude, especially NYX Ruffle Trim (cinnamon pinkish color); it looks easy and effortless, and ruffletrimcompliments most of my wardrobe without washing me out. Sometimes if am feeling sassy and need a quick nighttime look I throw on NYX After Hours a cool, deep brownish hue that make my lips pop – all the drama without the hassle. The best part of the Lip Lingerie line is that the formula they use to create it is extremely silky, and contains vitamin E; so when the liquid dries your lips don’t! There are 24 shades of Lip Lingerie available from pastel peach (Cheekies) to a cool grey/brown (Scandalous). So no matter your skin tone or mood there is a right nude for you.

NARS Spring 2017 – Wildfire Collection

NARS Spring 2017 – WILDFIRE Collection

It’s that time of the year – all the makeup brands are introducing their amazing new lineups for a fresh start to the year!

We earlier reviewed the glam-tastic MAC collaboration with Mariah Carey. The cosmetic collection was every bit as sparkly as the glittery crooning Diva herself, and we loved it! Let’s have a look at what NARS has to offer with their SPRING 2017 collection – “WILDFIRE”.

NARS WILDFIRE focuses on confident shades, bold yet earthy tones. We are loving the funky berries, dreamy violets, rosy hued earthy nudes and muted rich blues. Have a look below at what’s new at NARS!

The collection features 11 items; 2 eyeshadow duos, 2 lipsticks, 4 velvet shadow sticks, 1 powder blush and 2 lip glosses.

Eyeshadow Duos

Thessalonique –  Lovers of purple tones will love this! NARS describes the pair as “Iridescent Seashell Pink / Iridescent Violet Smoke”, which is an apt description.

Chiang Mai – Described as “Shimmering Sea Blue / Copper”. An unorthodox pair? Definitely, but we have to admit, the pair does look good together. We’d love to try it on.

MAC has recently collaborated with the highly successful chanteuse, and come out with a gorgeous collection as glitzy as the glamorous diva herself. The collection boasts of the following lineup, and our Beauty Bee is excited to walk you through it after personally having tested the items herself!

The collection is lusciously glamourous! The decorative theme is glitter, gold and silver. The shades of the items focus on nudes that would flatter mostly light to medium skin tones. If you love nudes like us, it’s definitely something to give a thought to buy. Our favorites are the eyeshadow quad in “I’m That Chick You Like“, lip pencil in “So Dramatique, lipsticks in “McIzzle” and “All I Want“… And that Skinfinish highlighter “My Mimi” is just begging to be bought!
