Classics Fluid Foundation (Shade 103)

Classics Fluid Foundation (Shade 103)

Hey guys today I am back with a review of a product which I am using for more than 7months and seeing amazing results. It is Classics Perfect Finish Makeup 103. It is basically a fluid foundation. It means you need to blend it with fingers or sponge whatever suits you, in order to get perfect results. I choose a small part of shade at the back of my wrist to check to see if it match my skin tone. After checking two-three shades, I found one that was one shade above my skin tone but not over done so that it might not look cakey.


Packaging

It comes in the plastic bottle of 34ml.  The cap is transparent one and the color of bottle was made of the shade of liquid inside, so it makes an easy to check for the shade. However I did not like the idea because you cannot imagine how much is still left to use it up. You need to only guess how much you have used and how much is still in the bottle. On the other it is travel friendly with no chances of breakage of cap.


What Classic Claim about this product?
  • A wonderful moisturizing foundation with smooth and soft effect..
  • Antioxidant power with Vitamin E
  • Regenerating activity with Vitamin A
Ingredients
  • I always look for the ingredient C177891 “Titanium Dioxide” when buying the makeup products, specially the foundations and base. This ingredient is mostly found in mineral cosmetics, it helps to protect your skin from sun rays and is suitable for sensitive skin.
On the other hand I did a research and found that:

  • Vitamin A promotes healthy skin and
  • Vitamin E protect your skin from sun burn  


Classics Fluid Foundation (Shade 103) blended over my wrist 

My thoughts

When I bought it, I had a lot of expectations from this makeup foundation. I use to take it off a mall pea sized quantity (As shown in picture) and use to apply a dot all over my entire face and neck. I then use my fingers to work evenly and blend all over the face and neck making sure the eyes, dark circles, nose , the chin area and fine lines on the neck are properly blended. I then wet my makeup sponge and swipe compact powder to get it fixed, otherwise it will look like you have applied a silver eye shadow. Finally I used the translucent powder or makeup fixing powder for the final touch. This foundation stays as it is for 4 hours, after which you might need to reapply the compact powder if it is feeling oily.

You might like it because
  • Gives a natural glow to skin
  • Good staying Power
  • You are have having combination to oily skin
  • Contains Titanium Dioxide
  • Enriched with Vitamin A and E
You might not like it because
  • You find white/silver shining if you did not use the compact powder.
Price and Availability

It is available in 10 different shades. I bought it for PKR 825 from Imtiaz Super Store. You can check the shades here, but they do not ship worldwide. Classics Products are easily available across Pakistan.

Golden Rose Perfect Shine Lipstick

Golden Rose Perfect Shine Lipstick

Hello Everyone, After doing reviews on skin care products today I decided to review something Pink , pinky :) Few days back, I got a shade of Golden Rose which caught my attention. I shared that in my makeup haul here.

So I decided to try this yummilicious shade which is 210.


The shade is super duper pink color. I will call this pink from the family of Disney World. I like lite color shades more because they can be wear casually and daily, so I bought this shade.


The thing that caught my attention was its smooth velvety like texture. It glides on smoothly over the lips and gives pink glittery shine to your lips. However you need to moisture your lips because if they are dry and chappy, it will emphasis lines. I think this is not the fault of the lipstick this might be the case with light shades probably. Anyhow, in any case we need to take of our lips even when not applying lipstick so that the shade properly gives its color.


The other thing which caught my attention was the label which says “Enriched with Vitamin A & E" These vitamins obviously helps us in these winters seasons. As for the wearing time is concerned I found this lipstick to start fade away in 2hours. I will not say without eating or drinking because I eat three ├ęclairs tofees while waiting for my mother in the hospital (Ahh she is better now, but still you know doctors’ follow up checkup). However when it starts to fade it leaves the traces of pink shade making feel your lips smooth and pink. That means it does not wear off completely giving an ugly look.

Ingredients

When buying makeup products I look for the ingredient C177891 (Titanium Dioxide) This ingredient is mostly found in minerals cosmetics and safe for your skin and health. Mostly this is found in base, foundations, sunscreens and blush on . But can be found in any skin care product. This ingredient was suggested to me by my dermatologist. I don’t want to share her name because this is not a paid content. Its just my sharing of knowledge to my followers J

You might like it because:
  • Smooth
  • Its inexpensive
  • Easily available
  • Available in gorgeous pinks and corals shades
  • Fades evenly
  • Contains Titanium Dioxide

You might not like it because
  • You want to moisture your lips so that lip lines are not emphasized
  • Not good staying power

Price and Availability

I bought it for PKR 375 from Imtiaz Super Store. You can check the shades here, but they do not ship worldwide.

You may find some shade may differ from here but this website will you give an idea about the range. This brand is available in all leading stores across Pakistan

Thats all for todays post :)

Kassara Pink Sunset Body Wash

Kassara Pink Sunset Body Wash

Hello Everyone :) Hope you all be doing great ..  Today I am going to review Kassara Pink Sunset Body Wash by Mikyajy. I have reviewed other products from Mikyajy here and I am completely in love with Mikyajy Products. Last year when my parents went for Hajj they grab a lot of products for me from Saudi Arabia. Mikyajy is the famous and best seller brand of Middle East and its products are worth buying <3

Now moving on to review , honestly speaking I am not a big fan of shower gels and body washes. I hardly use them once in a week or when going out for a special party (Winks :P) Normally I prefer a good beauty soap like Johnson baby soap or Olive  Oil soaps available in leading stores across Pakistan. But this body wash has completely changed my view , now I am tempted to use it. Since we need extra care and for our driest skin and something to make us feel smooth like velvet, I think that this body wash is a great choice then.

 Kassara Body Wash 

Kassara body wash comes in the cute pink packaging of 100ml. It makes you feel refreshing. It is a clean-rinsing body wash, you will not feel greasy or oily. Its smells like something pretty from Heaven. I am in love with its fragrance <3


Apply with a sponge or as it is, work in leather all over the body and rinse well with hot water (Obviously in winters :P) Using body wash in winters and then taking bath with hot water will make me refresh in this sleepy mornings :) It stays on good for 5-6 hours in winters and good thing is that you can feel its freshness and fragrances for 24 hours as its does not fades away completely.
                                                       
Ingredients

I will not go into details with this section because Mikyajy contains skin friendly ingredients but I would like to share that it contains Cocamidopropyl which comes from coconut oil. It helps to wash away the oil and dirt from your skin.

 You might like it because:
  • Smell like heaven
  • Pretty Pink packaging
  • Travel friendly
  • Stays on good for 5-6 hours.
  • Does not fade away completely as other body washes do.
  • Contains skin friendly ingredients
You might not like it because
  • It is not available in Pakistan
  • You want scent-free products.
Price and Availability

My mom don’t remember its exact price but it should be in range of 10-15 SAR (PKR 300 to 450)

It is available in all Mikyajy Counters across Middle East. For Pakistan Fans you can ask your International buyers to grab them for you.

When searching for it on the website I did not get its direct product link however you can check its website here.

Stives Make-up Remover and Cleanser


Makeup is important part of our life. After makeup we need to properly washed our skin and moisturize them to avoid any breakouts and pimples which may result if the makeup is not properly removed from the skin.

We can use makeup on acne skin to hide scars, blemish and pimples but this does not clear skin it only HIDE those scars and pimples. So , if that makeup is not properly removed or cleansed then it may result in an increase of those scars and pimples.

I have already shared how scrubbing and cleansing are important part of our normal routine life.

Coming home from a wonderful party makes so feel tired and makes some people found lazy to remove it. Even I feel lazy but after reading the tremendous disaster that makeup brings to your skin when leaving it on for the whole night, I start to search for Makeup Removing products.

I went to Bin Malik, superstore in North Nazimabad, Haidery, Karachi and started looking for such products. There were number of brands available, but like most of the girls I found afraid of using any or every kind of product on my face because my skin is extremely sensitive so I cannot trust every brand so I go for Stives Make-up Remover and Cleanser.


Stives Make-up Remover & Cleanser (front side)


 Stives Make-up Remover & Cleanser (Back side showing ingredients)


Stives Make-up Remover & Cleanser (Check out its consistency)

What Stives claims about this product?

The cleanser with 100% Natural Extracts effortlessly removes even the heaviest make-up while cleaning the skin.

What Stives claims about this product?
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Non-Comedogenic
  • Formulated without Parabens & Phthalates.
A short description of  Parabens & Phthalates (From the internet)
  • Parabens are chemical preservatives that have been identified as estrogenic and disruptive of normal hormone function. Estrogens have been shown to increase the risk of breast cancer.
  • Phthalates are also known to be hormone-mimicking chemicals, many of which disrupt normal hormonal processes
My review:
In my opinion Stives products, as they claim, does not create any kind of skin rash or allergy to skin. So if you want to give a try you can choose their products and test them to see if they works for you too.
Stives is a Unilever brand. This makeup remover and cleanser comes in the packaging 6 Oz (170 gm). I first of all wet my face and then take a small pea sized (as shown in the picture) of this product and add two to three drops of water in it. I then gently make a paste of it and try to remove my makeup. It ultimately removes my heavy makeup base Luview Pakistan (reviewed here) my lip shade and my eye makeup shades used from Tempting Treats (reviewed here.)

However it fails to remove my water proof black eyeliner from Mikyajy Pretty in Pink bag (will be reviewed soon) completely. You can say either that eyeliner quality is so good or you can say that makeup remover does not works well for water-proof makeup products.

Now what did I do for removing that eyeliner? I use my Caresse Honey Lotion, wipe a small quanity of it on tissue paper and then removes my eyeliner.

Tip: Research says that using cotton balls for removing makeup increase the chances of having more wrinkles after the age of 30, so I avoid using them frequently.

Now back to the review.  This makeup remover & cleanser is gentle to skin and does not feel harsh. You did not need any extra makeup Oil or cleanser. However you may need to repeat the process two three times if your makeup is heavy till it is completely removed. After removing makeup I suggest you to use any kind of toner or sprinkles rose water to let you feel fresher after the tiring party.

Pros:
  • Formulated without  Parabens & Phthalates
  • Does not feel harsh on skin
  • Is a good choice if you are having it alone, without cleanser
  • Inexpensive and easily available
Cons:
  • You find it oily
  • Does not works well for water proof makeup
My rating 4/5

Since it fails to remove my water proof eyeliner

Availability

This is available at all local super drugstore around PKR 300 across Pakistan.
