FAVORITE ADDICTIONS!


Well hello there everyone! Hope you all are doing just fine. Today’s post is about my favorite addictions; things I have been crazy about lately. So here they are!


    1. FAVORITE APP: GROOVESHARK

Since I am a music maniac, I try to listen to as much music as possible, like all the time hahaha…mostly I prefer to tune into my favorite radio station but sometimes I just want pure music- no chats whatsoever. In times like these, Grooveshark is my answer! You can either create your own list of songs depending upon your mood and liking, or, you could simply play any default playlist if you are feeling lazy to make your own list (which happens with me most of the times haha). [www.grooveshark.com]


2. FAVORITE SONG: SOMEWHERE ONLY WE KNOW BY LILY ALLEN

Yes, I loooooove the cover done by Lily Allen even more than the original one (by Keane). Its very rare to find a cover which outsmarts the original song, but it has just happened! And I’m addicted to it.

     3.  FAVORITE BODY CARE: ANATOMICALS THE POSHER HANDS AND FEET TREAT

My HG night cream for hands and feet. If you have been reading my previous posts, you might have guessed that I love taking care of my hands and feet, seemingly even more than my face haha. These creams not only come with cute packaging, they are super travel-friendly (the yellow tape that you see in the pics is a proof of that – for secure packing purpose you know ;) ) AND they do their job in moisturizing my hands and feet just well. These are not very rich in texture (very dry skin people might not be impressed) but for the weather of my city even in the month of December, they are doing a good job. And I looooove the minty fragrance of the feet cream!






Look what they have to say!

funny, right?! :)

4. FAVORITE PIECE OF CLOTHING/ACCESSORY: these cute little beauties – pretty on the outside, warm and comfy from the inside!



5. And this naughty creature.

So what are your favorite addictions lately? Do share with us, and have a nice week!

Luscious Cosmetics Nail-polish Haul

As you might remember, a few days back I posted about the online sale of Luscious Cosmetics Nail polish sets. Well, my new obsession is collecting nail polishes and making (almost failed) attempts of nail arts haha. So to share with you guys what I ordered, lets have a look over the arrived contents.


To start with, I was pretty impressed with the secure packaging (as you can see in the pictures above). Also, the purchasing to package arrival part was pretty quick and hassle-free. I simply ordered on their website and 1 day later the package arrived at my door step and I paid the cash (Cash On Delivery is available nationwide on Luscious website). As you can see I (the greedy cat :P ) ordered 2 nail sets: Pretty In Pink (does anyone remember an awesome 80's movie by the same name? :P ) and Rock&Roller. Each set was of PKR 795 or USD 7.48. That's right, 6 nail polishes for PKR 795, so in total I had to pay PKR 1590 (USD 14.96), and there were no delivery charges (minimun order amount should be above PKR 1500 or USD 14.11). Now for this amount, I'm sure you all will agree that it was a TOTAL STEAL!!!

I know you are eyeing the black case in the above picture and wondering what it is?! Well it's a free gift: Luscious Cosmetics Compact Mirror :)


One side features a clear, regular mirror for makeup application and the other side features a 2x magnified mirror for tweezing, which altogether makes it a very useful tool indeed. Besides, who doesn't like free gifts? of course I was very happy! ;)

Now onto the nail colors. I am pretty happy with almost all the nail colors, let's have a look at the swatches and see how they turned out to be.


PRETTY IN PINK NAIL SET

1. Tango: a vibrant fuchsia pink. Only 1 coat and it is opaque!



2. Whimsy: a soft pink with pearl. Takes 2 coats to be opaque. Also I noticed that its applicator is somewhat wider than other nail colors' applicator!



3. Romance: a bright warm pink. 3 coats required to be opaque.



4. Moonstone: a warm tea pink with pearl. 1 coat and its opaque!



5. French Beach: a light peach beige. 3 coats needed to be opaque.



6. Sand Dune: a light neutral nude. It took 5 coats to be opaque (if you can call it that). Also, it takes the longest time to dry (very runny consistency). You can see its a bit streaky/patchy too. I don't know what to do with this shade :(




ROCK & ROLLER NAIL SET

7. Ballet Slippers: a pale creamy pink. Takes 5 coats to be opaque. The shade is quite cute but the runny consistency makes it somewhat of a disappointment. :(



8. Melon Sorbet: a creamy coral. Takes 4 coats to be opaque. My camera failed to capture the *real* shade which appears a lot more peachy coral!



9. Pink Pop: a watermelon pink. In a single coat its opaque. A fun shade to wear :)



10. Cybil: a rich berry red. Opaque in 3 coats. Perfect shade for the fall!



11. Heavy Metal: a cool grey with pearl. 2 coats needed to make it opaque. Perfect for the Rocker-chic look ;)



12. Bling: a clean shade with silver glitter. This is my favorite among them all. It can be worn alone or as a top coat to add some fun. In the picture below, Im wearing a single coat of Bling.




So that's about it folks. Hope you enjoyed this nail-color-carnival post haha. I just checked the Luscious website and happy to know that the Nail Sale is still on. Be sure to check their page (here) if you are an obsessive nail color collector like me ;) Luscious Cosmetics ship worldwide.

Thanks for reading. Lots of love. xoxo
