NOTD! Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Hot Magenta.

This is my quick review for another shade from SH Xtreme Wear line. The shade is called Hot Magenta which is true to its name.
Its a HOT PINK with subtle shimmer and blue undertone. Its a fun bright colour, great for both finger and toe nails.
As I told in my previous review the formula of the polish is great. It applied smoothly and the brush is wide enough to give you an even application without any streaks. Its super pigmented. Staying power is darn good! It stayed for a good 5 days without chipping! =)
( i applied 1 coat and a top coat! see how pigmented it is!)

Do you think that's a close match to OPI's Holy Pink Pagoda???? 

Let me know what you think!

REVIEW -- Rimmel Extra WOW Lash Mascara!

Here's a quick review of the Rimmel Extra WOW lash mascara.

Rimmel claims:

Extra WOW Lash mascara, the new volume and lash building mascara with a 50% larger brush for WOW volume.The super sized brush makes it easy to build soft to dramatic look with visible progressive volume up to 12X.Lash building formula for highly defined lashes. No clumping.

My thoughts???
- The wand is great. Its tapered at the bottom so you could actually get hold of the inner and lower lashes with ease! =)
- It doesnt clump. Its a lash building mascara so the more coats you apply the more volume you get WITHOUT any clumps!

- Doesnt flake off-which is great!
- Dries quickly.
- Gives both Volume and length =))
- Doesnt feel heavy! After applying 3 coats my lashes were soft- it didnt feel CRISPY like other mascaras!

(3 coats)

 - Enables you to customize your look from soft to dramatic.

- Enriched with vitamins and conditioning agents.
- NO PANDA EYES! One thing which amazed me was tht although its not waterproof it didnt smudge or     smear. Trust me i had this on and i stepped in heavy rain and there was not a single sign of racoon eyes.
- Easily available in stores across Pakistan. (spotted at Chase Value Centre)

The ONLY bad thing is that its available only in 1 shade- extreme black.

In short, i simply love this mascara.

Have you tried this mascara?

NOTD! Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in CELEB CITY.

Here's a quick review + swatch of SH Xtreme Wear "Celeb City".
It's a perfect silver nail polish. has a blingy-foilish finish which looks simply gorgeous. The formula is good-not too thin and not too thick, the brush is designed to give an easy, smooth and no-streaks application.
Another great thing is that it lasts for a good 5-6 days without chipping (even without any top coat on!)

Hope you enjoyed reading<3

Have you tried any of the Xtreme Wear shades? What do you have to say about it?

P.S. Do you think its a close match to OPI Designer Series "CORONATION"?

REVIEW -- New Rimmel Vinyl 'MAX' Lip Gloss!

Hello everyone reading this! This is my FIRST review of any product ever!! I'm gonna give my honest opinions. Well, I've been sent this Rimmel's new invention as a sample so I thought it would be a great idea to review it.
Vinyl Max Lip Gloss!!! You must be familiar with the regular Vinyl lipgloss. The NEW version of it is something massive and voluptuous!!! I received shade number 121 - EXCESS- which is a pretty shimmery pink, great for both day and night.

Rimmel claims: Full coverage, high gloss-shine.

For louder, bigger, bolder and braver pouts, you’ve come to the right place. Discover a gloss that keeps lips soft and smooth, whilst magnifying and intensifying volume and colour. 

My Opinions:
well, first lets talk about the packaging. It comes in a clear tube which is narrow at the bottom and maximizes at the top. The wand is HUGE!!! My first reaction was "OMG!!! This 
wand is SOOO giant!" LOL. It helps to aplly the product easily in just single swipe.

(Left-wand of ordinary gloss, Right-wand of Rimmel vinyl max gloss)

The formula is great as its not sticky or goopy like other glosses. After applying i felt a slight tingling and cooling sensation, which vanished in a few minutes. Its super shimmery- not chunky glitter but gorgeous shimmer! It has a sweet vanilla-ish smell too =) ( plus point for all vanilla lovers!)

The lasting power is great as well. It stayed on for a good 3 hours on me. IMAGINE! a gloss with a good staying power!  i had lunch and tea with this gloss on!
(Rimmel vinyl Max gloss in Excess- wore it alone, gives great colour pay off when applied on  any lipstick too!)

It comes in a variety of shades ranging from subtles to loud shades! The price is around $ 8, and these will be launched pretty soon in Pakistan! =)

Hope you enjoyed reading!
