I am sure you all must’ve read or heard about platinum.pk . They offer you international brands like Asos, Forever21,Mango, KARDASHIAN KOLLECTION ,Dorothy Perkins,Aldo , and many more. I was given an opportunity to buy something from their website and give my honest reviews. I was little skeptical since I have heard so many mixed opinions on the quality of their products.

Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel-Fall Mood [NOTD]

Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail enamel-Fall Mood 
I have been wearing Revlon colorstay nail polish in fall mood pretty much all week. The name suggests that its perfect for fall/winters but I think this shade will look amazing in summers too, if you want to rock the whole bronze goddess look. The shade is gorgeous and I feel it’s perfect for desi weddings or formal event too.

  • Fall mood is a bronzy/copper metallic foil with tiny sliver shimmer.

Color Stay Nail Color formula is fortified with unique ingredients that provide high impact color and gel-like shine in fashion forward range of shades and finishes. This technology is based on a unique combination of resin and high molecular weight polymers designed to provide flexible, shatterproof color with excellent color retention and gloss
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you would know that I love sally Hansen’s insta dry polishes , mainly because of their brush and Revlon colorstay polishes have similar brush .The brush makes the application a breeze and fall moon only needs two coats to achieve full opacity. I am known for my lousy nail polish application but it dries really fast and makes me love it even more.




Price: Rs690/$7.99/£7.99
Availability: Just4girls.pk  
Internationally -  Boots (UK), Drugstore.com , Ulta, and US drugstores.
Bottom LineI bought mine from Jalal Son’s DHA ,Lahore for approx. Rs 699/- . I have to say , i am pretty impressed with the Revlon Colorstay Longwear nail lacquer formula, It applies effortlessly, finishes off with a beautiful shine and lasts upto 4-5 days without chipping.

Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Sultry - Review,Photos & Swatches

Revlon Color Burst Matte Balm in sultry
I LOVE (with caps) Revlon lip products; they are among the best in the drugstore market. Revlon just kissable balm stains my HG lip products. I can’t seem to get enough .So recently I picked up Revlon color burst matte balm, among other things coupleof weeks ago and been using it religiously.
Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm ($8.99) offers velvety color with balm-like moisture. Infused with a Triple Butter Complex of Shea, Mango and Coconut Butter. This retractable chubby crayon requires no sharpener.
Right now I own just one shade but I have ordered two more which I shall feature here soon.
Revlon Color Burst Matte Balm in sultry is a brown toned pink.

The Revlon Color Burst Matte Balm in sultry is amaze balls. It is a total matte and hence no shimmer or sheen.Revlon sultry is prefect for medium/ desi skin tones who want a safe shade for everyday use. If you haven’t already noticed I love lip products with minty flavor or scent, So this also have the same mint scent as the kissable lip stains, and comes in same swivel up design but the packaging is matte and the outside color matches the product shade, making these easy to spot & easy to use. They don’t need a sharpener and travel friendly. Revlon cute matte chubby pencils claim to be “blam-like” but I didn’t find them as moisturizing as a regular lip balm. The shade i won sultry isnt drying but I wouldn't call it a "balm" . It is very creamy and applies so smoothly without any dragging or pulling and super pigmented ,you only need one or maximum two swipes to build up full opacity. It feels so comfortable on the lips. The lasting power is impressive, I applied when I was going out around 4pm and by 8pm it slightly faded leaving behind a stain, on me it stays for 3.5-4 hours before needing a touchup.

Price: $7.99-$8.99 / I got mine for Rs 1350 from beautyhub
Availability: You can pre-order these through BeautyHub facebook page or I have seen some instock at Rouge’s Facebook page.
Internationally – Boots, Walgreens, US drugstores

Overall: I use these Revlon chubby lip balm/stains more than lipsticks and I am such a fan of the minty scent/taste but I personally find the minty scent quite pleasant but those who don't like scented/flavored lip products might not like it .It is quite pigmented & applies like a creamy lipstick .It also glide on smoothly & feel comfortable on lips. I can’t wait to get more , maybe a lacquer one this time probably when Revlon is buy one get one 50% off . Do i need to say more ?

Everbuying 24 Piece Professional Makeup Brush Set with Travel Case - Review


Is there anything like too many makeup brushes?? But with dufferent brands, countless brush sets availability and deciding which makeup brushes to add to your collection can sometimes be difficult & tricky.
Today i am going to review this budget friendly 24 piece brush set which comes with in a Roll-up Leather Case. The brush set was individually packaged and the brushes were protected by a plastic.The brushes come with wooden handles (with Bobbi brown name printed on them) and there are two different types of brush bristles natural animal hair and synthetic fibers.

The 24 piece brush set Includes:
1 × 24 in 1 Professional Cosmetic Makeup Brush Set
1 × Roll-up Leather Case
Large Fan brush,Small fan brush,Powder brush,Angled contour brush,blush brush,Foundation brush
Large eyeshadow brush,medium eyeshadow brush,pencil brush,angled blending brush,small blending brush,small pencil brush,smudge brush.
eye-shadow shader brush,angled shading brush,concealer brush, Small flat eyeshadow brush, Smudge brush,eyeliner brush,small angled flat brush,angled eyeliner brush & lip brush .
brow comb/brush,spoolie,sponed tip eyeshadow applicator
24-Piece Professional Makeup Brush Set with Travel Case
Travel Case
 This brush set comes with possibly with all the brush you will need ever,except maybe a fluffy eye-shadow blending brush. Lets start with the face brushes. I was bit disappointed with the quality of blush,powder and angled contour brush, they shed alot and bristle hair are sticking out most of time,resulting leaving these brush hair on the face. They aren't the soft and bit scratchy.  But on the other hand the large fan brush is amazing , i use it for applying highlighter, The flat foundation brush and the small fan brush are pretty decent. Now the fun part, the small brushes which are in my opinion highlight of this big brush set, There are so many types of eye-shadow brushes,different sizes,different hair, and i love them. They are soft , blend easily. They dont shed ,atleast not yet. The quality of this brush set is 50-50, if i have to rate it solely on the eye-makeup brush i might have given it 8.5/10 but since face brushes are essential tool.Keeping in mind the cost and quantity of the product, you really cant compare them with high-end brush sets like sigma,crown brushes,Real techniques but lets be honest one RT brush will cost you more than this whole set. 
I love using the eyeshadow brushes and i think i wont be buying eyemakeup brushes any time in future, I particularly like the small pencil brush,angled blending brush, the small angled eyeliner brush, and really they work as good as my coastal scents & luscious brushes.







Do i recommend it ? you really cant compare them with high-end brush sets like sigma,crown brushes,Real techniques but lets be honest one RT brush will cost you more than this whole set. I do like the smaller brushes like eye shadow ones, concealer, the big fan brush , but on the other hand i am not fan of other face brushes in this set. This set will be good investment for those who are just starting with makeup and want to try out different brushes since there are alot of multitasking brushes in this set.
Price & Availability : The 24-Piece Professional Makeup Brush Set with Travel Case is available at everbuying.com for $14.80/approx PKR1561 (originally $17.76).
