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.
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 compliments 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.
Matte lipstick has made a huge comeback this past year, and is going to continue to reign in 2017. Every makeup brand from Wet n’ Wild to Dior has jumped on the opportunity to create the perfect matte lip. Even though I love the above mentioned makeup brands there has been one clear standout matte lipstick for me – NYX. Not only did they crush the competition with the formula of their matte lipstick but also created the most diverse range of colors.
With the winter months still brewing around for a while, I am continuously inspired by the dark rich colors that are associated with it. All I have been wearing for the holiday season are shades like: deep burgundies, burnt oranges, and rich umbers.
In particular a shade of umber that is my absolute favorite is Berlin, a soft matte cream by NYX. This deep warm hue accents not only my eyes but also the sun kissed parts of my hair. The best part of this matte lipstick is that it transitions perfectly from day to night. The lightweight formula does not smudge and stays on for hours! I really have to commend NYX for enabling me to create the flawless matte lips.
Don’t miss out on your chance of wearing Berlin this winter and being a sure standout! Available now in Pakistan exclusively on Just4Girls.pk.
These shades flatter all skintones, no matter how dark or light. In the first part of this series (Best Lipsticks for Desi Skintones), we are focusing on natural, matte shades. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Walkyrie”: The NARS Velvet Matte formula is unique. It feels utterly weightless, silky and hugs your lips like second skin 😍
The shade performs as a warm spice shade on fair and medium skin tones, and a tangy warm nude on darker skin tones.
Maybelline Super Stay 14 Hr Lipstick in “Lasting Chestnut”: One of my favorites! Lasting chestnut is a taupe nude shade with pink undertones (similar to MAC WHIRL). It is yet another shade that everyone can comfortably wear. For fair to medium skin tones will give a cool brown shade, whereas for darker skintones results in a stunning nude shade.
NYX Velvet Matte Lipstick in “Charmed”: Recent addition to my favorites category, Charmed is described by NYX as a “brick red with purple undertones”. On fair skintones it definitely gives that exact shade – whereas on medium skin tones it is a cross between rose and brick red. On darker skintones it performs more as a flesh nude shade.
I consider myself a strong person – independent, I study, work, cook, shop. All rounder!
I have a weakness though. I’m a hopeless fan of a gorgeous Red lipstick.
Crimson, Vermillion, Scarlet, Ruby, Sangria, Garnet, Cherry. All reds. I adore reds.
So it is little wonder that when I came across this beauty – NARSVelvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square, I nearly lost my mind with awe.
The shade is gorgeous, a brilliantly pigmented vermilion – a bright red leaning into orange; suitable for everyone from fair to medium skin tones. The formula is weightless, oh so light – but the color is intense in just one swipe.
In short, the shade is love. Makeup lovers – specially red lippie fanatics, need to add it to their stash!
