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.

Style Files: Lily Collins has Gorgeous Taste!

Style Files: Lily Collins has Gorgeous Taste!

Award events are entertaining occasions.  Glitzy star studded nights with lots of glamour, these events are one of the best sources of inspiration for makeup trends and fancy dresses.

Over the past few events, I can’t help but gush over how stunning Lily Collins has been strutting her stuff recently.

At the 74th Golden Globes event held yesterday, Lily Collins wore a striking dusty rose Zuhair Murad creation.

The floor length gown was a mix of lace and net, hugging her body but flaring out beautifully from the waist down. Floral embroidery and bead work accentuated the dress throughout. Harry Winston jewels were chosen to accessorize her ensemble.

The color choice complimented her skin tone perfectly, and she chose to tie her hair into an elegant braided updo. Keeping the eye makeup minimum and complexion glowing and bright with just a hint of blusher, she finished the look with strong brows and a bold, matte red lip. It couldn’t be any more perfect!

It takes us back to the last time she stole our hearts at an event – The 22nd Critics’ Choice Awards, where Lily Collins stepped out wearing the perfect lacey Elie Saab Haute Couture gown.

The sleek figure hugging lace gown had a Victorian inspired neckline studded with Swarovski, and flaring billowy sleeves. She accessorized with Chanel jewels, but it was the contrasting makeup she chose to wear that really made her stand out.

A metallic bordeaux lip and earthy inspired eye palette contrasted with the pale ash grey-green gown, making her eyes and flawless skin strikingly captivating. Collins finished her look by keeping her hair loosely knotted at the nape of her neck, strands framing her face; the combination of bordeaux and earthy browns in her makeup palette highlighting her eyes and sun kissed strands of her hair.

We’ll definitely be storing these two excellent showings in our event attire inspiration books!

Best Online Cosmetics Store in Pakistan

I have been a regular online customer for many website operating in Pakistan, from garments to ordering shoes or electronic items, I have ordered everything online but when It comes buying cosmetics online in Pakistan, I only preferjust4girls.pk. I believe just4girls.pk is not only the pioneer when it comes to selling international reputed brands (100% Original) in Pakistan but J4G has introduced over 50 world reknowned brands to Pakistan customers via their website. Sometimes prices are on the higher side but when I am sure that I will be getting the original stuff with 100% no questions asked return policy, I get ready to pay some extra amount on the brands I used to crave browsing on Amazon or Sephora.

There are other cosmetics websites as well but they lack innovation & customer support. When I say innovation, I mean they hardly introduce any new brand, they hardly put international brands on sale. I have issues with just4girls.pk website speed few years but now they have improved their website a lot. They have recently introduced some major drug store as well as luxury brands on their website like NYX, Wet N Wild, ELF Cosmetics, Caetle, Bobbi brown, Tarte,Christian Louboutin, Clinique, Estee Lauder & many more. Just4girls.pk also have some exclusive brands on their website like Hard candy and Makeup Academy. I personally love MUA for its affordable prices and good quality.

 Overall if anyone is interested in starting ecommerce venture of selling cosmetics online, Just4girls.pk is the website to lookout for. Once again, their customer service is exclusive and this is what make them Leaders when it comes to selling cosmetics online.

Japan Travel Diaries: Harajuku and Fashion

Japan Travel Diaries: Harajuku and Fashion


Japan is truly a world of its own.

It can be described in many words, or no words at all. It is a place that exceeds your imagination, one that you cannot fully comprehend until you’ve experienced it yourself.

Getting to Japan

Before even arriving in Japan, I got a glimpse of Japanese culture through my Airbnb host, Mari.
Mari provided us with a detailed 28 page guide of how to reach her flat from Narita and Haneda Airports for all methods of transport. Instantaneously, I knew Japanese culture was kind, helpful, & meticulously efficient. Not only were walking directions included to the closest stations, but also cute pictures, arrows, and my hero, Hello Kitty.
Did I mention Mari’s place is a Hello Kitty themed flat in Harajuku?
With my detailed guide in hand, I made it to Harajuku in no time, even with the language barrier.

Overload of Cute!

To get to the flat, I had to go via Takeshita Street. Takeshita Street is a dream come true for shoppers and non-shoppers alike. You are immediately hit with the sweet smell of most elaborate crepes and cotton candy, a lot of pink, and everything anime. You have to have a stone cold heart if you are not overcome with cute aggression. EVERYTHING IS CUTE: street signs to fuzzy shoes and anime tunes.

Fun in Harajuku and Getting to Our Flat

First order of business: even before getting to the flat, we had to get our hands on some brightly colored hair dye and the face masks for our Japanese makeover/takeover.
After weaving in and out of the hectic streets of Harajuku (and taking note of selfie stick rules and regulations,) we made it to our mini Hello Kitty palace.
hellokitty-flat
It was Hello Kitty’d to the max.
The next day we immersed ourselves in the culture a step further, and booked hair appointments at a local spot for Japanese haircuts, where we made a little cutie Frenchie friend named Lili.
We shopped our hearts out the next three days! We hit vintage shops down Harajuku backstreets, the pop up maze of La Foret, and endless cute cafes/vending machines with ramen all along the way.

Just as we got comfortable around, (we already felt like locals on the third day in Harajuku) it was time to shake things up and leave the modern city, and travel back in time to experience the ancient culture of Kyoto–via 200 mph bullet train.
Stay tuned for the fun and amazing experience in Kyoto, coming up next at Just4Girls.pk Blog!
