Product Description

This rich and creamy Body Butter is a feast for the skin. It melts straight in to leave skin feeling soft and smooth. It contains Community Fair Trade virgin organic coconut oil and has a totally tropical coconut scent
  • 24-hour hydration
  • Great for normal to dry skin
  • Tropical coconut scent

The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter

My Thought

i didnt have any experience with body butters before. i dont like body lotions so i thought why not use body butter instead so i gave it a try and i am not regretting my decision it really is a feast for the skin.i stumbled upon this while i was surfing body shops website, it is best known for their body butters.these body butters come in 31 different scents and coconut body butter in one of the best sellers.
the butter comes in a brown colored plastic tub in 200ml and 50 ml, i have got 200ml.the first thing which made me fall in love with this butter is the divine coconut scent, its very strong and overpowering it lingers on the body for a very long time you might not need any other scent or perfume.this might be its downfall as the scent of the butter overpowers or get mixed with the perfume if you are wearing any .i dont use any other scent when i use this, sometimes i put on body shops EDT strawberry with this and i smell like coconut and strawberries (really like it :)).
the butter is thick in the tub but when apply it melts on the skin and leaves it felling is an amazing moiusturizer it hydrates the skin and does not feel greasy and sticky( i really hate the sticky feeling of any cream and lotion but thank God this is not the case with this one).it works better when used after shower.highly recommended for normal to dry skin
i am definately going to repurchase it :)


  • moiusturizing and hydrating
  • non greasy
  • easily absorbed
  • amazing scent


  • a little priceyy
i will rate this 4.9/5

Price       £12 (1800 PKR)

Do try this one :)

Luscious Cosmetics " the twilight saga" kit

My thought

twilight series is an absolute love and this pallete is inspired by the series.when i heard about this pallete i knew i had to have it. i always wanted to have a complete package kit and this the pallete indeed is a full package.the pallete comes in a black packaging with an attached mirror.the pallete is about the size of my palm.


this pallete contains 8 beautiful eyeshadows.the shades are higly pigmented and velvety in texture.they contain silver micro shimmer in it.the thing i like about the shades is they are sooper easy to blend and glides smothly on the lid you can creat any look you want with these shades.
the staying power of the eyshadows is quite comendable they stay put uto 6 hours on me and with the primer underneathed they stay longer.they do crease after some time but thats because my lids are oily.
i like it how these shades are named.the shades i like the most in this pallete are jane, eclipse, alice and venom.i dont like esme because its a lil bit chalky.




Lip Glosses

lip glosses are more like lip balms.they dont have much color but they are sooper moisturizing.bitten and emily are the one with some tint.


Gloss - Swatches


Face Shimmer

i was disapponted by the quality of the face shimmer beacuse its not the same as the luscious sparkling face shimmers which are sold seprately.this shimmer has a light baby pink color with micro silver shimmers.i doesnt give mush color on the skin,i just use this on the apple of my cheeks to give a shimmery finish and as a highler on my eyes

Face Shimmer

Face Shimmer - Swatch

All in all this pallete is a must have.the bags which comes with it is quite handy and travel friendly.i also like the silver metallic pencil.


  • eyeshadows are pigmented
  • cool and vibrant colors
  • lip glosses are moisturizing
  • handy in travellig
  • inexpensive


  • eyeshadows have fallouts
  • the kit should come with applictors
  • lip glosses doesnt have much color

i will rate this 4.4/5

Price        975 PKR

hope you like it...thats it for now :))

Sleek Makeup Blush in Pixie Pink

Sleek Makeup Blush in Pixie Pink

My thought

I am a sucker for cute blushes when i read reviews about this blush i coudnt wait to have this and now here i am reviewing this.this blush is a matte one i prefer matte blushes over shimmery ones because they don't emphasize my pores like the shimmery ones.

the color is cool bubble gum pink, at first it would appear too bright but on application it gives a nice flush of color.the blush is highly pigmented and the texture is creamy soft and glides smoothly on the skin its not chalky at all, it blends well i just need a lil bit of this to add a perfect blush to the cheeks
you can creat both bright and soft look with this blush and is suitable for all skin types.the staying power of the blush is fairly good
Sleek Makeup Blush in Pixie Pink - Swatch
the packaging of blush is quite sturdy it holds 8g of the product and comes with a mirror.the packaging makes it look cute and travel friendly you can throw it in your hand bag without the fear of breaking it.

Homemade Peel-Off Mask

I am going to share a homemade recepie of peel-off mask.I tried it myself and it really works.this is a multi purpose mask and helps in

  1. Removes balckheads
  2. Gives a glow to the face
  3. Tighten the pores
  4. Control oiliness


  1. Egg's white
  2. tissue paper


Pour egg's white in a small bowl and beat it using a face pack brush apply it on your face, avoid the eyes and mouth area.then take the tissue paper and cut holes for the eyes,nose and lip and place this tissue paper on your face over the egg white now cut another patch for the nose and place over it,if the tissue paper doesn't cover you whole face try to cut patches and place one by one to cover the whole face.then apply another layer of egg white on the tissue paper covered face and let it dry for 20-30 min. after that remove it like a peel-off mask and wash your face with water.
(take off the mask after its completely dry)
Apply this twice a week and you will feel the difference :))

Product Description

ultra-smooth gel formula allows for precise application. apply it with the eyeliner brush. quick-drying, long-lasting, smudge and waterproof. available in four colors ( midnight in paris - london baby - berlin rocks - miami's ink )
midnight in paris 01


Isododecane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Mica, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Cyclohexasiloxane, Propylene Carbonate, Ci 77499 (Iron Oxides).

My thoughts

when i heard about this liner i wanted to try it asap bcoz i got tierd of my cake liner as it smudges in summer so i got it in midnight in paris which is a jet black matte color.although the liner is matte but u will notice micro silver shimmer in it.liner comes in a cute little glass jar wid a plastic lid and contains 3ml of the product so the quantity is quite enough. packaging isn't that bad but the jar is not sealed.
midnight in paris 01
i found this liner richly pigmented and super creamy which makes the application easy.u dont have to struggle to get a precise line and no need to drag the brush over the lid as it glides smoothly.the liner is water proof and it stays put upto 12 hrs, it does not budge or smudge so oily lids aren't problem anymore.

midnight in paris 01 - swatch
as the liner is water proof, its hard to take it off even with a makeup remover. i tried to take it off with my cleanser but it was a mess i rubbed my eyes so hard that they got red n started itching. then i came up wid an idea and dabbed my eyes with some coconut oil and remove it with tissue paper and the liner came off with a single swipe no rubbing and scratching. so u ll have to use a oil based makeup remover to remove it or just try some coconut or olive oil it will work

after rubbing with finger

after rubbing with water

i absolutely love this eyeliner. u can use it to creat any look u will also work on the water line and stays put for a long time.use angled liner brush to apply the liner

liner applied


  • budget friendly
  • richly pigmented
  • creamy in texture
  • water proof and smudge proof
  • good substitute to cake n liquid liners
  • available in different color


  • hard to remove
  • not sealed
i ll rate this liner 4.8/5
