10 Best International Lipsticks Brands available in Pakistan

10 Best International Lipsticks Brands available in Pakistan

Hello, all my lipstick lovers! Finally, I have been able to compile a list of the best international lipstick brands we have available in Pakistan. Good news ladies, best does not have to mean the most expensive. The list I have complied showcases everyday affordable brands to traffic stopping glam lipstick. So whatever your budget is, doesn’t mean you have to skip out on looking your best. Checkout my top 10 list below (in order by price, from bargain to splurge):

  1. MUA – Matte Lipstick Rps. 299
  2. Wet n’ Wild – Silk Finish Rps. 499
  3. Elf – Mineral Lipstick Rps. 799
  4. Hard Candy – Fierce Effects Rps. 999
  5. NYX – Matte Lipstick Rps. 1,299
  6. Tarte – Amazonian Butter Lipstick Rps. 2,999
  7. MAC – Creame Sheen Rps. 3,299
  8. Burberry – Lip Velvet Matte Rps. 3,999
  9. NARS – Audacious Lipstick Rps. 4,199
  10. Yves Saint Laurent – Rouge Pur Couture The Mats Rps. 4,499

I wanted to shine the light further on a few brands mentioned above.  MUA Matte Lipstick in Mystic Marsala has been a savior for me. Besides NYX this is my other everyday go to. The sleek matte finish stays on for hours and I don’t have to break the bank because it is a steal for only Rps.299.

When I am feeling extra fashionable and want to make a bold statement, I turn to Hard Candy Fierce Effects in Newly Berried. This berry purple hue is such a head turner, and I always get asked where I bought it.

Last but not least, NARS, besides the sleek packaging it’s worth every single rupee. To me nothing is classier than 1950s glamour, and I will forever associate that with a classic red lip. NARS Audacious Lipstick in Annabella, is old Hollywood and Bollywood combined with elegance. This color is so chic that I guarantee at a dinner party your lips will outshine your outfit.

There you have it! Lipstick shopping in Pakistan is now hassle free with all the brands available exclusively at Just4Girls.

Nude lipsticks are amazing. You can wear them comfortably everyday, and even rock a nude lip at night by glamming up your eyes. Who’s looking forward to picking this up? I know I am!

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.

original_HC_GLAMO_SLIDER

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.

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.

NARS Fall 2016: Powerfall!

NARS Fall 2016 collection is here, and it focuses on the most powerful message of all: ‘Accentuate. Never imitate.’

NARS Fall 2016 Header

Makeup is all about focusing on what your best features are, and how to feature more prominence on your best features. No one has eyes like yours, and the other person does not have your skin tone. Your lips accent, your cheekbones, your eye shape – they are all uniquely you!
