Best and affordable brow pomade. Zhoosh brow pomade | Review

Zhoosh is a first Pakistani premium mink eyelash brand. They make brow pomades too. It doesn’t have any on ground outlet so you have to order their products online. Their delivery service is fast.

I ordered zhoosh brow pomade from their website @zhooshmeup in a discount bundle deal of pkr 2050. They delivered the products in a nice shiny golden packet.

The bundle included a zhoosh brow pomade, zhoosh dual ended eyebrow brush which has a spoolie brush at one end and an angled eyebrow brush at the other end and a zhoosh tweezer. Their brow pomades are available in 5 shades. Butterscotch, mocha, fudge, dark chocolate and cinnamon. The shade range is limited though but these are the most suitable colours for Pakistani skin tones. I ordered the mocha coloured brow pomade.

It has a rich and creamy fat free formula which is highly pigmented. It glides on smoothly. It depends on you whether you want to give a natural look to your brows or a dramatic look, it works both way. It has a buildable coverage.

It is water proof and smudge proof. It doesn’t budge at all.

I have the most oily skin and it works best for me. It works for all skin types. I use it daily and even the next morning it was still there and intact. So yes you would totally want to have it and trade it for your Anastasia Beverly hills dip brow pomade. It gives such a natural look to your eyebrows that you don’t need any eyebrow gel on your brows to set them.

Same thing just less pricey and the results are awesome. I bought this pomade like six months ago and it still is in use. So yes a little goes a long way.

However the zhoosh brush doesn’t do justice to the pomade. It isn’t as stiff as the sigma angled brushes are. So yes if you use some other brush the product will come out even better.

Will I buy it again?

Yes I’m waiting for this pomade bottle to end so I can get my hands on a new one may be a shade darker. Apart from its brush not being stiff to apply the pomade more sharply there is no cons in this pomade. It’s one of the best Pakistani brands and I am a fan of this brand already.

World’s best oil control product, The Body Shop Tea Tree mattifying lotion

I have a very oily skin and by very I mean for my T zone, sky is the limit. Lol. I try various oil and shine controlling products but this “The Body shop’s Tea Tree mattifying lotion” is by far the best and the only product which makes my skin shine proof and keeps it oil free for as long as I stay awake and literally the next day till I wash my face. So no more greasy oil situation on my face.
I bought if from The Body Shop outlet for $9 because they had a sale going on otherwise it was of $15. A little bit pricey for such a small bottle but it was worth it. The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly and it doesn’t leak from the lid as well.

The scent of this lotion is quite strong as it has a tea tree fragrance when you first put it on your face but it goes away after some seconds. The consistency of the lotion is very light weight and is transparent when applied and gives a cool sensation on application, your skin feels so smooth after applying it.

This product does what it claims, reduces oil and prevents shine. Neither it clog the pores. This lotion really mattifies the skin for a very long time but also keep it moisturized at the same time. It controls oil and shine for a long time and can be used as a makeup base. Foundation glides on it smoothly.

It claims that it clears acne and prevents blemishes too but according to my experience it did not prevent my blemishes and I can’t say anything about acne as I have an acne free skin already. It cleared my complexion though and made my skin look fresh.
$15 would be a little pricey for me as it comes in a very small bottle of 50ml but I got lucky and got it at $9😄 but the benefits are worth every penny.
The down part for me is that it dries down my under eye area so much that it irritated me and I apply a different moisturizer on it. But over all it controls my oil and shine and keeps them at bay.
The amazing part is I applied it at around 5pm and when I woke up the next day I still did not have any oil or shine on my face. I was completely astonished by this. I totally love it.

Would I recommend it?

Yes, I would recommend it but for the eye area part which gets dry you have to put some other moisturizer. Even if you put a moisturizer over it, it won’t make your skin oily. This is the only con I found in this lotion that it dried my under eye area but it is the only product that could control my oil and shine.

Genuine simple ways to lose weight

Weight loss is a very big problem for us ladies these days specially mommies and so many websites on the internet suggest such harmful methods and ways to lose weight that I had to come up with this topic. Diet can never let you keep your weight off for a very long time so dieting is not the answer to weight loss problem.
There is always healthy ways of doing certain things and weight loss is one of them. I will talk about genuine ways to lose weight efficiently and maintain it for like forever ! So let’s get started and share my knowledge with you guys.

Add flaxseeds in your diet

Flaxseeds are proven to speed up the weight loss. They contain fibre which keeps you feeling full.

Drink more water

Water keeps your hydrated and full for a very long time. It actually helps you lose weight by burning the calories for an hour after you drink water. Drinking water before and between meals also reduce your calorie intake. But NEVER drink water after you are done with your meal for at least half an hour.

Eat an apple everyday

As we know “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. There must be some truth to this fact. Apple contains a special fibre called pectin that slows down digestions and keeps you full for a very long time. Hence, curbing your food cravings.

Add more proteins to your diet

Any food with high protein keeps you full for longer periods of time thus reducing your appetite. A protein diet boosts your metabolism and helps in burning more calories. Almonds, lean meat, poultry, cheese, yogurt, dairy, fish, beans, eggs and soy products have a high quantity of protein.

Take more vitamin D

Vitamin D aids in weight loss and decrease body fat. According to some researches, people with a high BMI have low level of vitamin D in their body. Mushrooms, salmons, oysters, cod liver oil, egg yolks are rich in vitamin D. You can also take vitamin D supplements.

Reduce your food intake of carbohydrated foods

After you reduce your carb intake, your body will gradually shed the water weight first and then it will start burning the calories and fats.
Don’t drink carbohydrated drinks, consume less bread, eat less potatoes, drink coconut or almond milk.

Say NO to processed food

Processed foods lack vitamins, proteins, fibres. They have a high sugar, sodium and fat content and increase your cholesterol level. All frozen, canned, baked and dried foods are processed foods. Cheese, cereals, microwave meals, ready meals, cakes, biscuits, and savoury snacks.

Add more fruits and vegetables to your diet

Fruits and vegetables are a healthy source of food. They keep you fresh and control your cholesterol too. They are rich in nutrients, vitamins, fibres and water. Fruits and vegetables are considered as good for weight loss. People who eat fruits and vegetables daily are comparatively healthier.

Add green tea in your daily regimen

Flavonoids in green helps speed up your metabolism and burn fat. It also helps in losing belly fat which is what people want most of the time. So enjoy the benefits of green tea by daily drinking it.
Avoid sugar
Sugar is as addicted is cocaine. It causes excessive weight gain and leads to other diseases as well. Sugar in every form is dangerous.

Use coconut oil more

Coconut oil speeds up your metabolism and burns your calories thus aiding in weight loss.

Take probiotics

Probiotics have lactobacillus and studies have shown that strains of lactobacillus burn belly fat and helps to lose weight. Yogurt is a probiotic which is good for burning belly fat.

Eat more fibres

Fibres keeps you full for a longer period of time, lowers your cholesterol and normalizes your blood sugar levels. Some fibre rich foods are pumpkins, chickpeas and apples.

Take whey protein supplement

Whey protein supplement reduces your appetite and burns fat causing you to lose weight.

Do cardio

Cardio exercises work very well for weight loss. You can start with a little walk first and then move to other exercises.

Watch less Television

Spend your time on televisions less because that’s how we end up eating more

Make a schedule

Make a daily routine schedule and follow it. Sleep early as eating late at night makes you gain weight more.

Eat healthy

One of the key factor of gaining weight is eating junks, which is not a healthy form of food. Eat vegetables, fruit, nuts etc.

Which fashion trends we Welcomed and which fashion trends we said Goodbye to in 2019?

Trends are usually somethings which are moving in certain directions and people follow it. Fashion and makeup trends always change. These fashion and makeup trends are set by people like us.
For those who follow trends and like staying up to date, here are some fashion and makeup trends fashion industry welcomed and said goodbyes in 2019.

Lipsticks

This is a year to welcome bold lipsticks again. So red is again the IT lipstick with all the other bold shades in the year 2019. But as classy as red is, it can never go out of style. Nude lips were quite trendy in the year 2018. All the celebrities and models were into nudes. But in 2019 nude lips are not trendy anymore. So bye nude lips !

Brows

2018 was a year of weird trends so natural looking down brows were out of style. This year ladies are again welcoming down brows (Thank God for that). Brushed up and bushy brows are so last year. Whereas brushed up brows were much trendy in 2018, I was never a fan of them. Bye bushy brows !

Eyeliners

Colourful bright eyeliners are welcomed this year like bright pink , bright yellow and bright blue eyeliners are what we see mostly on runways these days. So bye black eyeliner (but honestly I just can’t say goodbye to black and brown eyeliners).

Monochromatic looks

It is the most welcomed trend in 2019. You just use same colour all over your face for makeup like on your eyelids, lips and cheeks. So bye bye to hectic long layering of makeups.

Glossy Makeup

I think glossy makeup will stay trendy for a long time as everyone likes a glowing fresh looking skin. So glossy makeup is what everyone welcomes with open arms even in 2019. Nobody wants a full matte face. So bye to full matte face makeup.

Hair

Last year caramel shades hair colour, blonde and burgundy coloured hair were in, this year people are welcoming grey hair more. Whether you want to dye your hair grey or embrace your natural grey hair is totally upto you but grey is welcomed in 2019. So bye to blonde, caramel and burgundy hair.

Lashes

Natural lash lift is the latest welcomed trend in 2019. It looks more natural and soft. So bye to falsies.

Nails

This is the trend which again gave me some relief. This year almond shaped nails are again in. Bye to square shaped nails !

Sleeves

Bell shaped sleeves are out this year and puffed sleeves are what people preferring in 2019. I personally don’t like puffed sleeves.

Glasses

Say welcome to oval shaped glasses and bye to square shaped glasses. That’s a plus point for me as oval shaped glasses suit more on people with a small face.

Tops

So after getting their shoulders cold in 2018, people warmly welcomed again the normal tops and waved a heartily goodbye to off the shoulders tops.

Bottoms

So to spice things up fashion gurus added utility dresses this year as a trend. You’ll feel a lot more comfortable in a jumpsuit and cargo pants. So bye to denims and tights.

Footwear

Sneakers and sporty sandals are trending this year whereas wave a goodbye bye to thigh high boots.

Prints

Animal prints are in this year. Anything would be considered trendy if it has an animal print on it. People welcomed snake prints and leopard prints happily and said their goodbyes to floral prints.

Last but not the least, in my view anything is trendy as long as you feel comfortable in it and you enjoy and feel beautiful wearing it.

ONE Minute hasty makeup

I don’t like it when people telling quick makeup techniques end up suggesting a dozen products to use including a face primer and eye primer. No, we don’t have that much time when we have a baby to look after to, reach office on time or a college or university to attend early in the morning.

It doesn’t matter whether you are a student, stay at home mom or a working mom, some days you just don’t have enough time to put a lot of makeup on to look presentable. As a stay at home mom, I have tried a lot of shortcuts to carry on with my MOM LIFE and looking presentable at the same time. Moms have every right to look good everyday even when the kids are at their worst. Lol. After many trial and error methods I have finally DISCOVERED a ONE MINUTE hasty makeup method which would make us (All the moms and students) look good in no time. Yes it is as simple and quick as it can be. You just need to choose the products you really need and you’re good to go.

Foundation or bb cream

Start with applying foundation or bb cream. When I have to do a one minute hasty makeup i opt for bb creams usually. These days I use M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 in shade 21. Its quick and easy to apply on. All you need is your fingers instead of using a beauty blender or a brush. It is light weight, moisturize your skin and protect your skin from the sun, if you go out in the day time. It minimizes pores, hides redness and imperfections giving a medium coverage lasting all day (if you don’t touch it).

Cheek, lip and eye shadow tint

Yes, all in one. Use a cheek and lip tint and you can use it as your eyeshadow too. You just have to look for a natural shade, apply a little on your cheeks, lips and eye lids, dab dab dab and you would look close to perfect.

I use Tarte exposed cheek stain for my cheeks, lips and eyelids as well. It lasts all days, giving a glowy, young, natural and fresh look. It is light weight but dries down nicely leaving your skin nourished and full of colour.

Mascara

Follow this step only if you want to. Most of the time I skip this step when I’m not going out. But adding this step would brighten your eyes more. I use benefit BAD gal lash mascara as it gives volume to your lashes. It does not run, smudge or flake.

. . . And we’re done with our one minute hasty makeup. You can do this makeup for your office, college, university, going out or just staying at home with your family. Looking good is not that difficult after all. I would love to know your hasty makeup routines. Xoxo
