What's On My Face: The Summer Edit

Hello everyone! Today's post is an inspired one. If you have been following me for quite some time you will know how much I am fond of Lily Pebbles. I am sure you know and have heard of her but for some reason if you have been living under the rocks then let me tell you she is one of my absolute favorite bloggers and also has a You Tube channel of her own, check her blog here.

Coming to the point, Lily use to do these 'What's On My Face' posts where she shared what makeup she was wearing for the day. I loved to read them (I miss those so terribly much!) and thought why don't I share what products have I been slapping.

I realize that in the western part of the world the sweater weather has already begun, but for us here below the equator it's still summer churning verrrry slowly like a caterpillar.

So here is the whole edit for all these months by. It's not something that I wore for a day only or either is it something I wear each day. Some days I change a few things here and there, add or subtract a few or just do not wear makeup at all. Down below is the categorical closer look of the products used:

For Face
For Eyes
For Lips
The products breakdown: 
Face: House of Etude Face Powder in Beige 02, Atiqa Odho Blush in Pink Pigeon.
Eyes: Preferred 12 color Eyeshadow Palette, Lakme Eyeconic Kajal, Mac Gel Eyeliner, Eyelash Curler, Brow Pencil (Brown).
Lips: Karaja Matte Lipstick in 60, Xueyinji Amino Acids Lipgloss in Orange. (Here a post I did on this combination a while ago, if you are interested).

Have you tried any of these products?

Web&App: Platinum

My Order is Here.
A few days back I was contacted by Atiqua from asking if I was interested in reviewing the website, honestly of-course, for them and the experience in shopping with them. As online shopping is still in it's early stages here in the country I was very excited at the opportunity and immediately jumped at the given chance.
It also reminded me of the website review I did back when I first started blogging and how it was shown love to and so decided on a new section called Web&App for the blog where I will review websites and applications for you fancies. (Hope you enjoy)
I was very kindly offered a voucher to have a shopping experience on the website and they were quick to provide me with one. Visiting their website I was immediately surprised to see all the renowned brands stocked which are not easily available in the country. Next was the price tags. The bags weren't too expensive and given the international brands that they are I was more than satisfied at the range that was on offer.

The one thing I did not know beforehand was that Platinum is only a Bags and Wallet store. But given the obsessive maniac I am it was only heaven for me. Although the site has a variety of brand names, there weren't much bags in themselves to choose from. I was the stocks were huge. But to tell you the truth even then I spend a good two or more hours on the website drooling over each and every beauty.

Coming on to the technical parts of the web design and user interface, I do think it needs quite a bit of work. Finding things was a bit difficult for me. I'd like to see more user-friendly features introduced. Also, a sign that says that all products are in-fact original. This is one of the biggest fears for anyone shopping international products online.
As for the services provided, I placed my order at 21:15 which is quite late in the day I reckon yet they were quick to confirm my order and I received corresponding email within 10 minutes! My order was at my doorsteps the very next day which was amazing to see. Damage-free and neatly packaged box made my entire valentine!

All in all I was quite delighted at the experience I had with and also grateful at the opportunity. I have discovered one stop shop for bag shopping. Here is to hoping for more products. The service is amazing and Atiqua has been great and easy providing any assistance required.
To see what I ordered and my review on the actual bag, keep your eyes peeled for my next post!

New Year 2014 Beauty Resolutions

Image:Source: Google.
Edited by me.

Happy New Year everyone! It has surely been way too long since I wrote anything here. I wouldn't even get into the reasoning but I do apologize. I am not generally someone who makes resolutions or stick to however little they may be (mostly I make one up when asked, eh). But this year I have a few things that I want to get a hang of. Some of them are beauty related of course, so here goes:
  1. Have a routine: I am someone who has never really gotten around to a routine. I do things for a few days before procrastination would kick in. I really want to develop a good skincare routine especially which brings us to...
  2. Try a range of skincare products: This is a neglected area of my being. I don't do much when it comes to try a range of products which will help me achieve a pulpy glowy skin.
  3. Drink more water: I am guilty of second to none water intake! I have to increase it to at-least 8 glasses a day. I stand at one at the moment, excuse.
  4. Wear more makeup: Yes, I don't. I wear makeup on occasions and my style has been nude face for too long. I think it is time I tried wearing more shades and went a little bolder with my choices.
  5. Invest: I want to invest in good pieces of makeup and tools. Long-lasting and staple products to add in my stash.
These will be a few things I'll be keeping a check on this year, well at-least I hope to. Let me know what are yours!
