Review: Jordana's matte lipstick

Jordana has recently launched in Pakistan, and I consider myself a lucky soul that I got to try some of their products through Jordana is a well-known American brand, and all of their products are super affordable. The products that I got in my parcel are: Jordana twist and shine moisturizing lip stain, matte lipstick, fabuliner, under-cover concealer and squeeze & shine lip gloss. Today, I am reviewing Jordana's matte lipstick in shade poppy pink for you all.
I worship matte lipsticks since they're long lasting. When I opened my parcel, my cheeks turned scarlet with joy as most of the products were for lips. I love lipsticks that are dark and dramatic. I like to wear bold colors as they complement my fair skin tone. I got Jordana's matte lipstick in shade poppy pink. Poppy pink is basically a dark pink/fuchsia shade. Now here comes the hard part, I do not like to wear pink lipsticks. Pink is just not my color when it comes to lips. However, I tried this lipstick several times for the sake of review. This particular lipstick is highly pigmented and it stained my lips even when it was fully gone. I wore it for about 6 hours, and it stayed there without bleeding. I never thought of trying Jordana before. I was really missing out as one who loves matte lipsticks cannot afford to miss these. They come with a small price tag, but the pigmentation is just out of this world. I'm more into deep reds and vampy shades, so I'm planning to try a few more bold colors. These lipsticks are made up of lightweight plastic; I'm afraid the plastic is not as good as the product itself. As far as the quality is concerned, it's amazing. For all those who are not in favor of scented lip products, these lipsticks are just for you. I do not mind having scents in my lip products as long as they're not overpowering.
  • Good quality
  • Inexpensive
  • Easily available
  • Fragrance-free
  • Packaging
Final verdict:
I’d recommend you all to give these lipsticks a go. I am not a fan of pink lipsticks, but they have a huge variety of different colors starting from light to dark, so I can easily pick a few for myself. If you're into matte lipsticks and have limited money, do check Jordana. Jordana's full collection is available at and this particular lipstick is of PKR 442.

That’s all for now! Thank you so much for reading, and stay tuned for more updates.
Until next time!

Review: Tosowoong's pure snail mask

Wishtrend sent me a whole lot of different products. I wrote an article for them, so they gave me a coupon of $25 as a reward. The products that I got in my parcel are: 7 snail masks, 1 full size bottle of c20 serum, and some samples. I was literally jumping with joy when this massive parcel landed on my door step.

Korean face masks are super cheap, and they can make you look like a porcelain doll. I'm serious and not even kidding. My mum was making fun of me the other day, because I chose snails over everything else. There were certainly more eye catching ingredients, but I like to discover new products, so I went for this mask. Snail slime has some unique healing properties, and that is why it’s being used in various beauty products. Also, snail mucus played a significant role in ancient times. Hippocrates reportedly used crushed snails and sour milk to cure inflammation. The idea of using crushed snails is pretty gross. 

Let’s be honest, we don’t like to use products that are full of crushed insects. Pardon me, I didn't mean to make you sick. Being a Pakistani, we surely require some changes here. Yes, I was fascinated with the idea of using a snail mask, but had mixed thoughts when I was opening the very first sachet. Believe me, Tosowoong’s snail mask is so much better than everything else. This product is full of snail slime. I gave the first one to my mum as I wasn't sure if I should really put this thing on my face. Tosowoong’s pure snail mask is amazingly scented, I really loved its smell. One sheet contains a bucket full of different serums and snail slime. It's really gooey, so thumbs up if you're a fan of wet and sticky face products. I worship products that are thick and gooey. Joking aside, I really loved the smell and texture of this mask. It's really refreshing, and made my skin soft and clean. It worked well for my mother, so don't forget to gift one to your mum.

Unfortunately, I'm bankrupt and have no money to spend on anything at the moment. All of my pocket money is over, and now I'm left with a couple of coins only. Feel my pain! However, my mum promised that she would let me spend a huge chunk of change on Wishtrend really soon.

Final verdict:
All in all, I had an amazing experience with Wishtrend. I’d recommend you all to try this mask since it’s really good. You can get a bundle of 7 facemasks for $9.99 from I am planning to try some more Korean products, so watch this space for more amazing reviews.
