Essence Home Sweet Home Blush in Shade Wool-D You Cuddle Me? Review~

Hey Guys :) 

Some time back Essence launched one of thier cutest and most adorable collection named HOME SWEET HOME :D and thier blushes were so adorable and so reasonable that they were to die for and I love love love thier blush and I also got one for myself so today iam going to review that 
blush :) 

=Packaging : 
This blush comes in a big pan and in my point of view it is travel friendly as the cap closes tightly and a 'click' voice comes when we close it so it wont open while traveling but we should wrap it nicely when traveling from air as it might get damage.And This blush contains alot of quantity so it wont get finish that easily.And This blush design is like a woolen sweater which looks so vintage and super cute :) A big clap for this blush design :)

Now Lets come to my review and swatches.

My View : 
This blush pigmentation is not that good and pigmented as i thought it would be and you need to apply this blush couple of times to get desire colour but it is good when we want something natural and light on our face and i love to apply light blushes but not that light. so i liked it but i hate the fact that we have to apply couple of times to get desire blush.I wish if essence had given this blush good  pigmentation that much they gave that miami blush.Lets come to this blush texture.This blush is so soft and it applys smoothly like a dream and i was amazed to see no fallout on the pan and it has buttery soft texture which is love and it blends ahmazingly on my skin.So overall this blush is a good buy and i liked the fact that it isnt powdery which most of essence blushes are but it isnt a good buy for dark skined tone girls as this blush is light so it wont apper on there skin tones.

Now lets come to swatches :D

=NOTE : Swatches are taken in natural light without any flash and i havent applied any primer or foundation beneath them and it may appear differently on different skin tones so keep your facts to yourself :) Thankyou :) 


This is how it looks when blend together.It gives a nice coral colour.

=Price & Avaibility : 
This was a limited addition collection so am not sure if it would be available but still you should check your nearest stores as they may restock it.I bought it from just4girls.pk for PKR 440 ($4).

=RATINGS : 3.85/5. A GOOD BUY :) 

1) No fallout on pan.
2) Buttery smooth texture.
3) Blends like a dream.
4) Super cute design.
5) Packaging.
6) Reasonable.
7) Quantity.
8) Love for those who like to apply light coral blushes.

1) Have to apply couple of times to get desire colour.
2) Lacks in pigmentation.
3) Light Colour blush.
4) Limited addition.
5) Wont show up on dark skin tone girls.

Sephora Lustrous Lip Shine In Shade "Berry Glow" Review~

Sephora Lustrous Lip Shine In Berry Glow Review~

Hello Guys :D
So today iam going to do my first review of 2015.Yes you all heard right today iam going to review sephora lustrous lip shine in shade Berry glow.

I dont know if this is still available in sephora but i wanted to review this just because i love its shade and pigmentation.It surely is a small gem for me :)

Sephora Metallic Glow Lip Shine in Berry Glow.

This lip shine comes in a tube like bottle and it is of good quality so packaging is not bad for the price and its applicator Is so soft and velvety and it applys the gloss perfectly and softly but sometime it takes out alot of product.So this packaging is pretty classy and of good quality.

When i bought this from sephora so i was not happy with its shade as it looked very boring from the packaging but later on i swatched it in my hand and it was such a gorgeous shade.I fell in love with it so afterwards it became my fav :D It is of berry-ish shade and it has metallic finish in it and this gloss contains amazing pigmentation and it aso contains small amount of shine.There are not any glittery chunks in it but a beautiful shine.

Swatch of Sephora Lip Shine in shade berry glow.

This swatch looks totally different from the first swatch because when i was swatching the product at first so alot of formula came on its applicator so this colour formes when we apply alot of product on our lips.I apply alot of product  on my lips sometime just to achieve this beautiful berry-ish colour.

#My Verdict:
This lip shine by sephora has amazing pigmentation although i didnt expected it to be that great and it is also moisturizing so we dont have to apply any lipbalm before applying this gloss and it has a metallic glow in it which won my heart and it also have an amazing shine in it.Iam not a glossy person and i dont like glosses so i dont purchase them that often so i wasnt expecting anything from it but it turned out ah-amazing so now it have became my fav gloss ever so now iam having mixed thoughts about glosses well lets come to the point so yeah this lip shine stays for a long time which is a plus point and it applys smoothly on lips and little product is enough on lips until and unless you dont want that much colour on your lips but the only problem i have with this lip shine is that this colour looks different under different lights.Well i must say sephora is doing wonders nowadays and now iam pretty happy with this company as i contain alot of products from this brand and they never fail to aww me.I so love this brand from bottom of my heart.haha.

I will suggest this product to all those girls who have fairer skin tone and are bold enough to wear this shade and i must say that this gloss dont suit dark skin tones which is a minus point.

This is how it looks on me.It suits me pretty well :)

#Price and Avaibility:
I bought this product from sephora sale randomnly for $8 only and it is not available in sephora nowadays sadly.This may be available in your nearest sephora outlet so you guys should check.

1) Pigmentation.
2) Colour.
3) metallic finish and it contains subtle shine in it.
4) Moisturizing.
5) applys smoothly.
5) long lasting.
6) Reasonable price.
7) Velvety applicator.
8) Classy packaging.

1) Not available in sephora currently.
2) you are not bold enough to wear this berry-ish shade.
3) You dont like berry colours.
4) Applicators take out alot of product sometimes.
5) Have dark skin tones and this shade dont suits you well.
6) You are not a fan of metallic finishes.

|RATE| = 4.5/5.

Surely a gem for me :)
