DIY: Smooth Honey Almond Mask.

Hey. Here's a quick and easy recipe of smoothing out your skin. Its a great mask for glowing skin and works good for fine lines.

You will need:

1 tbsp honey

Honey's natural antioxidant properties help to protect the skin from the damage of the sun's rays, supports the skin's ability to rejuvenate and refresh depleted skin, leaving it feeling silky soft and supple. 

1 egg yolk: 

It has vitamin A that has Retin A which is used to help skin  shedding, regulate the amount of skin produced, stops pores from clogging. 

Half tsp of almond oil:

Almond oil is very healthy for our skin as it moisturizes it and improves our complexion keeping skin soft and wrinkle free.

1 tbsp of yogurt:

Yogurt is an effective cleanser. The creamy texture cools, calms and refreshes tired skin and helps in getting rid of acne and dead cells.

What to do???
 Simply mix all the ingredients until well blended. Apply on you face and neck and leave for at least 20 mins. Rinse with plain water. And rock out your glowy baby soft skin =)

REVIEW -- Christine Eye Pencils

" Eye liner" is the first cosmetic item that I used ever since I started wearing make up. It is the product that I use every single day and thus I have used a lot of different eye liners from various brands-both Pakistani and Foreign brands.
In the beginning I was only confident enough to rock out black kohl pencils but gradually I invested my money into colored pencils as well.
Today I am going to talk about Christine eye pencils.

These are wooden pencils and I own four shades. These are available in 32 shades in the market with matte and shimmer finishes.

And here are the swatches:

1. Green(i exactly don't remember what this particular shade is called as the name has been faded)
2. Copper 
3. Deep Purple
4. Electric Blue

When I first tried them I was really impressed by the smooth texture and pigmentation. (that's only one single swipe in the pic above). Considering their cheap price they are extremely good quality. The color pay off is very great and they glide on effortlessly.

They does not even smudge or melt away. But if you have oily eye lids they may tend to smudge a bit. However after about 4-5 hours the color fades lightly but that's OK with me.

I love these pencils for their brilliant color, quality and price! These are available everywhere with price ranging from Rs. 50-60!!  See? That's inexpensive.
These are great to have if you like funky color eye liners and they wont even break down your bank account! =)
My favorite ones are green, electric blue and deep purple!!! I don't like the copper one as it doesn't actually show up much on my eyes.

Hope you like it!

February Favorites!

Hey this is my first post of the month March and its about the favorite products of previous month.
My monthly favorites for this month are actually those quite similar as Jan favs as I have very limited favorite products and I reach them all the time without hesitation.

So first lets see my face products:

For cleaning/exfoliating my skin I use Nivea Visage face wash(read review) and St.Ives Olive scrub.
I sometimes also mix both of these together and then massage all over face and neck. It makes a great combo.

Secondly I use L'Oreal Hydra Fresh cream(I came to know about this product @ Sara Hassan's blog and tried it:})

Its very hydrating and non greasy. I love using it before applying my face powder.

Next is the face powder I had been loving and using from quite a long time.
Rimmel Stay Matte Face powder
This image has been taken from Google.
Mine doesn't deserve to be shown here as its nearly a loose powder state now=P
Thanks to the loose lid and my reckless handling.

Now lets move onto my eye products. Eyeshadows are not in my normal routine makeup. But mascara and eye liner is a must have for me.
Both products are from Rimmel and also from my Jan favorites list.

Rimmel Extra WOW lash mascara and Rimmel Exaggerate eye defining pencil. I LOVE THEM BOTH and will definitely re purchase them.

Another product is AGAIN from Rimmel =P I love RIMMEL!! I find them to be more affordable as compared to other brands. 
Seems Rimmel is paying me for promoting their stuff =P well I bought them all with my Parents' money =P and sometimes mine too.
Anyways its the Match Perfection concealer. I like to use it to hide imperfections sometimes. But not for everyday use(at least for me)

Next is a lipstick from Maybelline. Its very old but I love the shade and the formula.Perfect to use in winters as its very moisturizing and has more of a balm-ish texture.
The shade is called Raisin and sadly Maybelline has discontinued this line of lippies.

And here is the swatch:

Above mentioned products =P

Lastly my most favorite perfume and body spray by ADIDAS. Pure Lightness for women.

Thats all. I hope you like it. Thank you for reading.

What is your all time favorite product?
