Illustration12 2

Holidays are just around the corner and all the makeup companies are coming up with their limited edition holiday sets.I was able to grab quit a few of them,one of it being tarte pin up blush palette so today i’ll be talking about this beauty.
Tarte has one of the most beautiful holiday sets ever.Last year one of the product that i was absolutely obsessed with was tarte off the cuff blush palette,so i knew this year if they bring out another blush palette i am gonna grab it with both my hands and that is what i did lol

Blush palette are great value for money,super convenient and very travel friendly,you get to have different shade in one compact packing,so what’s not their to like right!
I gotta be honest with you when i saw this palette online i didn’t like it much,i liked their previous blush palette more but still i ordered it,but oh my how i was wrong.The online pictures does not do it justice one bit.

IMG_4340Tarte pin up blush palette comes in a clutch type palette and has a decent size mirror inside with two customized hair pins,super cute right!The casing is very cushiony and sturdy so you don’t need to worry about the blushes breaking easily.However i find it to be a bit bulky for my liking,but oh well.It contains 5 blushes all of them being limited edition shades,weighing 5 x 0.158 oz which is a decent amount in my opinion,i like how they have covered all the shades in here from beige to pinks,coral and berry/plum tone,incorporating different finishes.The palette is versatile and can be use to create any kind of look because of the variety of shades and finishes they have provided.If you are going on a holidays,bring this palette with you and trust me you are all set.

  • BREATHLESS (PINK BEIGE) : It’s the most accurate description,it’s a beautiful pink beige,which gives a beautiful sheen.The shade is very unique,i don’t have anything like this in my collection.
  • EMBARCED (PLUMMY ROSE) : This is a beautiful muted plummy rose shade with flex of shimmer and has a sheen to it,however it’s not as pigmented as the rest of the shades and you have to build the color up.
  • WHIMSY (LIGHT PINK):This is a gorgeous matte baby pink shade,super pigmented and fun color to wear
  • BASHFUL(ROSY PEACH):This is a gorgeous shade with flex of golden shimmer and gives a gorgeous sheen,absolutely love it.
  • IRREPLACEABLE(MAUVE ROSE):It’s a bright warm mauve rose,almost look like a berry shade to me,with a semi matte finish.

Now lets talk about the quality,i don’t think i need to tell anyone how amazing single tarte amazonian clay blush are and this palette is no different,infact i find the blush too be even more soft,smooth and pigmented.Shade IRREPLACEABLE,BASHFUL,WHIMSY and BREATHLESS are super soft,butter and creamy where as i find EMBRACED to be abit more stiff and less pigmented,but it’s buildable never the less.These blushes claim to be long wearing and i do feel they stay on me for quit a long time.For the price of $42 it’s a good bargain considering you get 5 blushes.So i am super happy with my purchase

AVAILABILITY:This is a limited edition palette and for now it’s available at sephora.If you live in STATES you can get it directly from their.In PAKISTAN you can ask any facebook page to arrange it for you,i got mine from ROUGE and it cost me around rs 5000/-

MAC ALLURING AQUATIC COLLECTION

967852_10152352888397377_2048063039_nHello my lovelies.This is going to be my first collaboration with my friend MARIAM SHAHJAHAN who is an amazing beauty and lifestyle blogger and a great friend<3 i mean i don’t think i need to introduce who she is right,everybody knows about her already 🙂  she is a sweetheart and we can talk for hours and hours about makeup and not get bored ❤ just like me she is super passionate about makeup and that shows in her blog,she will always give you her honest reviews no matter what,so you can totally trust her with all your beauty decisions 🙂 You guys have to go check her blog out and trust me you’ll be hooked,i specially love her drool worthy hauls.We both share our love for MAC and were super excited for MAC ALLURING AQUATIC COLLECTION,she got some shades i didn’t have and visa versa so we thought why not do a collab blog post.

10728756_10152352899002377_279506661_nMAC ALLURING AQUATIC COLLECTION came out few months back.I know this post is super late but how can i not post about this,i mean just look at it,Can we all take a moment to appreciate how beautiful the packing is.I am not the only one who think they did a fabulous job with the packing for this particular collection right!

All the products in this collection comes in a beautiful turquoise metallic packing with little droplets of raised water.So it gives an illusion of the product being wet.Absolutely gorgeous.By far my favorite mac packing to date.

I am such a suckers for limited edition makeup,write limited edition in front of anything and we all know i’ll go crazy over it.Mac is notorious with their limited edition collections,They just doesn’t want us to take a breather.Whenever i saw this collection for the first time i knew i have to dig my paws in it.These limited edition collection sells out fast but i had my eyes glued to their website and as soon as it got release i asked AMOR to order few of the products,these are the products i choose:

*MAC ALLURING AQUATIC COLLECTION LIPSTICK IN MYSTICAL.
*MAC ALLURING AQUATIC COLLECTION EXTRA DIMENSION BLUSH IN SEA ME HEAR ME.
*MAC ALLURING AQUATIC BRONZER IN REFINED GOLDEN

MYSTICAL SWATCH

  • MYSTICAL LIPPIE:To be honest i bought mystical just because I absolutely loved the packing.I mostly wear bright/dark matte shade so this was soo not my kinda shade but since it was the most popular of the bunch i thought to order it.Whenever i applied it,it was love at first sight.This is such a beautiful “my lips but better kinda shade” for me.A perfect lipstick to pair with a dark smoky eyes or even with a natural look,i am obsessed with it now,too bad it was limited edition.I hope they bring back this shade,I for sure will buy a back up of it in a heartbeat.

BLUSH-SEA ME HEAR ME :LEFT(SINGLE SWIPE SWATCH) – RIGHT(HEAVY SWATCH)

  • SEA ME HEAR ME EXTRA DIMENSION BLUSH :A gorgeous extra dimension blush which is described as “beige pink” is a mauvy warm tones pink which gives a beautiful sheen when applied on cheeks.This blush is not super pigmented and i mean it in a good way.It’s not like one application will give you a clown face.It’s very buildable and you can build it up or keep it sheer.I find it a perfect blush to pair with a red lipstick or any bright lipstick for that matter.I see myself wearing this blush more as we get into the fall/winter season.

BRONZER-REFINED GOLDEN:LEFT(SINGLE SWIP SWATCH)-RIGHT(HEAVY SWATCH)

  • BRONZER REFINED GOLD:Ok so there is a story behind it AMOR couldn’t arrange this bronzer as it got sold out quick,but we had to meet some how lol,my amazing friend saw it at a mall in Lahore and picked up for me and send it all the way to Karachi so thank you soo much for that bakhtawar ❤ now coming back to the bronzer,I just started getting into bronzers lately,when i received it and saw it for the first time i thought it had way too much shimmer for my liking and it looked like reddish brown to me so i though this is definitely going to be a miss,but when i applied it for the first time,my brush did not pick up any shimmers and the bronzer itself was warm enough for my liking which was a pleasant surprise.It’s definitely a bronzing shade since it’s warm tone and not a contouring shade.Girls there is a difference between the two.You can also use this bronzer in your crease area to warm up your eye look.I sometimes do that and it looks gorgeous that way.So over all it worked out for me.I definitely prefer nars laguna over it though but i am glad i bought it.

I am absolutely loving the lipstick and blush from this collection,could have skipped the bronzer but now that i already have it in this gorgeous packing i am not complaining at all.
