Cheetah heels!

Like Marylin Monroe quotes 'all the women owe a lot to the person who invented high heels' :D

I am a hugeee fan of heels. And since I am of an average height, I can wear heels whenever and wherever :D
I got these cheetah print heels from Saffron for only Rs-1700/-  :D

They are 5 inch heels with a tiny bow on top. And trust me when I say they are not painful! I am the kind of girl who will go through immense pain to wear a gorgeous pair of heels. They are quite comfortable to wear and easy to walk in. :D

And you know whats the best part? They go along with any kind of dress, whether it be jeans or shalwar kameez. <3

and lastly to add the best saying 'give a girl the right kind of heels and she will conquer the world' :D

Pink lemonade eye make-up.

Hello girlies. since summer is here with a bang, we all want to do something that makes our eyes pop. So here is a step by step eye tutorial for you guys to give the summer an extra feel :)

P.S: please excuse the weird camera quality. I used my phone's camera, since my digital camera passed away.
 Step 1: - prep you eye up with a primer, concealer and some loose powder just to make sure that your eye does not crease.
Step 2: - Apply yellow eye shadow on half of your eye lid.
Step 3: - Apply pink eye shadow on the rest of the lid, making a soft outer corner V.
Step 4: - Blend the two shades properly. To give an excellent blending effect, you can use a light orange shade and blend between the two shades.
Step 5: - Apply liquid eyeliner.
Step 6: -  Apply pink eye shadow on the lower lash line and smudge it with a little bit of black eye shade.

to finish it, curl your eyelashes and apply mascara.

The Final Look.

Yay. I hope you girlies like it. :)

What is my blog about!?

Hey there pretty! Yes you.  how are you doing?
I am here to talk about my blog. What it is really about. How can you benefit from it?

So here it is. –
I have spent hours in front of the computer ogling and goggling at those cosmetics which I can’t afford to buy. With my limited pocket money and on going university, I can’t just seem to take money out to buy all those branded cosmetics. And I am sure that there are many of you out there who are going through the same.
So, whatever make up I can buy, whatever D.I.Y beauty treatment that works miracles, goes on this blog. I will try my best, literally my best to help you girlies buy affordable make-up from the most accessible places.
And believe me, there are A LOT of blogs out there, doing their best to give you reviews of branded cosmetics. I am not saying that they are not doing a job well enough. They are doing an AMAZING job. So here is a shout out thumbs up to you guys! Keep doing the awesome work (y). – anyway, so on this blog, I am going to introduce affordable make-up, and mostly other beauty products and home made remedies that are going to work wonders.

So keep following this blog and I will make sure never to disappoint you J

Lots of love.. Ayesha

DMGM Kohl pencil's alternative - Sweet touch Eye Pencil.

Love DMGM's Crayon Kohl pencil? Can't afford to buy it? Well here is a cheap alternative for it: Sweet Touch Eye Pencil :D

It has the exact same qualities like that of DMGM's Crayon Khol Pencil.
read the review: http://goinggorgeous.blogspot.com/2012/04/dmgm-crayon-kohl-pencil-review-swatches.html

Comparison of DMGM's and Sweet touch's swatches.

Price: PKR 180/-. Available at any supermarket. Leading being Agha's, Chase, Naheed & Shazz.

DMGM Crayon kohl Pencil - Review & Swatches.

I have a HUGE collection of black eye pencils/ eye liners/ kohl pencils. And my most favourite being the DMGM Crayon Khol pencil.

What they claim:

Smudged swatch.
Decorate the windows of your soul with style. Crayon Kohl pencil can be used to create a sharp line for a softer, smoky effect. They are long-lasting and won't crake or streak. It comes in 2 luxurious colors that adds depth & definition.

What is my review:
Out of all the eye pencils I have used, this one is THE best. It does not smudge or streak. Does not leave a black smudge on the crease (which usually many eye pencils do). It is long lasting. And Believe me when I say that I have worn it for 6 hours straight without any touch ups and it did not smudge. It has a creamy base and its application is smooth. 
Also, before I found this pencil, the hashmi kajal was what I lived by. But this pencil just works wonders. When you smudge it, it gives a great smokey effect which is great. 
I can not find any faults with this pencil and I doubt it that I will find any in the near future. The only trouble with this pencil is that it is too fragile. It breaks easily when you sharpen it, so you have to be very careful while sharpening it. 

Price: I got it for PKR 550/- from Naheed Super store. But you can easily find it from any super store where they have a couple of branded cosmetic stands. Options being, Agha’s, Shazz, Naheed and Chase. 

Neutrogena: On-the-Spot Acne Treatment - Review.

I am a huge fan of Neutrogena products. And most of the treatments I have are of Neutrogena. One of the most amazing products that Neutrogena smartly introduced is On-the-Spot acne treatment. Although this product is eons old, I discovered this lately (or maybe they just recently introduced it in Pakistan) and now I am head over heels in love with this product. It is a small tube but it has a huge amount of product inside. It works for a pretty long time.

What the product claims:
On-the-Spot® Acne Treatment is a spot acne treatment that provides maximum-strength results without drying out your face. It goes deep down in pores to kill the acne bacteria that cause pimples and helps stop new ones from forming.

Some medicated spot treatments contain high doses of Benzoyl Peroxide that can irritate skin, causing redness and dryness that can make acne worse. On-the-Spot® Acne Treatment contains just 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide, yet it provides the same maximum level of effectiveness with 70% less irritation.

Fight acne and get maximum-strength results with an acne spot treatment that won't dry out your face.

Non-comedogenic (won't clog pores)
2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide

What is my review:
Considering what miracles this product does to your skin, I am a huge fan of it. I have majorly oily skin and since this product is oil free, it helps to tone down the levels of oil on my skin. I have a healing-from-acne skin but sometimes, major breakouts appear and I use this cream on those spot (usually at night) and when I wake up in the morning, the spot considerably reduces, with no sign of redness or irritation. 
This product is definitely worth buying. I’d give it two thumbs up. And if I had more thumbs on my hand, I’d definitely give it those too. 

Price: I got it for PKR 350/-. Easily available at major supermarket stores like Chase, Agha's & Naheed.
