Zoeva Rose Gold Set Review



Zoeva brushes are my favourite brushes among high street brands, although Zoeva is not available at high street stores but price of brushes is about the same range. I personally prefer Zoeva brushes over Real Techniques initial basic brushes. I find RT brushes a bit expensive for what they are. And I am not talking about RT latest collections like their new PowderBleu collection, which are the incredibly soft brushes ever but are too expensive for a high street brand.

Blenderelle – A Storage Case for BeautyBlender and Makeup Sponges

blenderelle-review

Blenderelle is an innovative little tulip shaped storage case for BeautyBlender and all other beauty sponges. It is one of those ingenious creation, where you kick yourself for not thinking it before. I mean it is very simple yet highly practical storage case. But I guess that is the different between me and them.  Blenderelle comes in a variety of colours and every colour is eye catching.

Epiborw Brow Design Serum & Ultimate Lash Serum Review


epibrow-ultimate-lashserum-x-brow-design-serum

Thick, strong and healthy eyelashes are eyeryone’s dream. I consider myself lucky that I have reasonable eyebrows with some sparse spots. But my eyelashes are not very strong. I have long eyelashes but very thin and fragile. Castor oil was my saviour for all these years but being an oily skin person, it is not a best choice most of the time. Because castor oil is thick and sticky.
About a month ago, I was sent two products from Epibrow, a Brow Design serum and Ultimate Lash serum. Epibrow is an institute which train semi-permanent makeup professional in their Epibrow technology of micro blading. Recently they developed two products to help regrow brow and eyelash hair for healthier look.

The Ordinary Azelaic Acid 10% Suspension and AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution Review

the ordinary azelaic acid + aha 30% bha 2% peeling solution

I did a huge The Ordinary haul a couple of month ago, and got many products at once from the brand. What I love about The Ordinary skincare range is that I can get products for specific skin concern without addition of several other ingredients which I already have in my other skincare products. Also, not to forget that all products are without a hefty price tag too.  I already reviewed The Ordinary foundations. So today I am reviewing Azelaic acid and AHA 30% + BHA 2% 10-minutes’ facial.

Natural World Chia Seed Oil Haircare Range Review




Can shampoo transform hair? The answer to this question is simple. Temporarily, Yes. Permanently, No. Because I believe that shampoo and conditioner stay on hair for a very short time to nourish hair follicles deep and moisturise scalp. However, as an everyday cleansing and smoothing products both can make significant difference. They can make hair lush and healthy looking. Or can take a detour and turn practically healthy hair into dry, frizzy strands and can strip natural oils. Therefore, finding a right product for our hair type is as important as products for face.

{Guest Post} 5 Best Natural Moisturisers Out There


5 best natural moisturisers out there

The influence of the millennial generation is spreading at the speed of light. The high-tech era has shaped millennials into a generation of instant gratification, requiring quick solutions when it comes to fashion, skincare and beauty. Since they are the largest consumer group out there, when they speak – the industry listens and so does everyone else. Thanks to them the skincare trends are experiencing a major shift, favouring natural and organic products to those which do not fall under this category. Moisturisers are no exception, as proper skin hydration and protection is the basis of healthy skin. Without proper moisturising, all other skincare steps are in vain, so let us dive in and see which products from this category are worth your skin and your money.

Brand Discovery: 3INA UV Makeup Collection


3ina uv makeup collection review

Makeup is all about experimenting with new looks, express moods and show different sides of personality. As much as I love my neutrals and pinks, I also adopt some irrational and unconventional trends and tweak them per my liking. So, when I received the 3INA VU collection, you can imagine how excited I was.

Handbags: Fake VS Dupe


fake vs dupe handbags

I adore designer bags. I stalk them everywhere (if stalking a bag on social media is a thing). Where ever I find them, I can circle around them for hours. The clean lines, intricate detailing, classic and timeless designs, best of the best material and the craftsmanship goes into them make them rather a piece of art than a bag.

The Ordinary Serum & Coverage Foundations Review


The ordinary foundations review

The Ordinary colours are new revolutionised foundations in already suffocating beauty market. Every big YouTuber, every fashion forward magazine and tiny, almost invisible bloggers like me, can’t get over the fact that these foundations are praise worthy without any doubt. The main factor which is knocking everyone’s socks off is the price. For £5.70, this cannot get any better.

The Ordinary by Deciem Haul


The ordinary skincare haul

Finally, after a month of wait I received my The Ordinary by Deciem order. And I am super excited about it. If you are not aware of The Ordinary brand then I will must ask, where have you been all this time? Deciem is not a new company. They have many mid-range skincare and haircare brands. But they got a spotlight last year when Deciem launched The Ordinary – an affordable skincare brand. When I say affordable, I mean cheap as a chips brand. Not that you will get all product for a £ but other than one, all products are under £10. So, it is a super budget friendly brand. But this is not the end of the story. In fact, it is a start of something very incredible. The Ordinary range offers high quality products made with potent ingredients at the price of high-street brands. In most cases, even cheaper than them.

Garnier has recently introduced new SkinActive skincare range which contain 96% natural or nature origin ingredients. SkinActive Botanical range has 3 steps skin products – cleanser, toner and moisturiser – for all skin types using natural ingredients per skin requirement.

[M] Botanical Daily Rejuvenator Review


organic-natural-handmade-skincare

Last month I did an introductory post about [M] Botanical brand – a UK based brand which offers hand-made, organic and plant based skincare products. I was sent two products for review purpose, a sugar body scrub and a face moisturiser. In my previous post, I reviewed [M] Botanical uplifting sugar bodypolish and left the daily rejuvenator face moisturiser for a future review post after giving it a good road test. Today is the future review post where I will be talking about Daily Rejuvenator, a face moisturiser design and developed for mature skin.

Makeup Anti-Haul


makeup-anti-haul-khaista-blogs

Anti-haul is a new concept in blogging universe. The whole idea behind the anti-haul posts or videos is to talk about those products which are quite hyped and you want to buy them at any cost but decide otherwise for several reasons. I found this idea very interesting and decided to do my take on it.

Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm Review


Stila-stay-all-day-10-in-1-hd-beauty-balm

Stila is famous for their magnificent metal foil eyeshadows – liquid and cream, liquid lipsticks and eyeliner. However, their base products don’t seem to stimulate the excitement among many. Maybe it is due to the packaging which is not very attractive at all. I took a plunge and bought Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD beauty balm. I bought this for my mum but it didn’t reach her somehow. I tried it first time in January but then it didn’t make my daily makeup routine. For last few weeks I have been using it almost every day and it became staple. Sorry mum, I will get you another one xx

Brand Discovery: [M]Botanicals Uplifting Sugar Body Polish Review


Introducing a new brand on my blog today which I have discovered recently through the brand PR people. I consider myself extremely fortunate to work with some amazing people and find hidden beauty gems. And if those gems are skincare, then it is like early birthday present to me. I personally enjoy “not so generic” brands. They feel exclusive and provide thoughtful services because they compete with mainstream brands to leave their mark.

What I Inherited From My Mom


Like every girl, my Mom was my first inspiration in life. I imitated her every action as a kid. I used to watch her getting ready, putting on makeup and following her around was my favourite thing to do.

Janina ultra-white teeth whitening is a gentle and low abrasive whitening system, free from hydrogen peroxide and packed with fruits enzymes from pineapple and papaya.

Best Micellar Water?? Bioderma vs Garnier

garnier_micellar_water_vs_bioderma_micellar_water

It’s a battle of two best micellar waters today. Bioderma micellar water is a French cult classic and favourite of many skincare enthusiasts. Moreover, it is my personal favourite too. It has been said, Garnier micellar water is equally sharing the spotlight, because of its price. I am putting my investigative cap on and getting down to the nitty gritty of both micellar waters. Let’s see who will win!!

Sanctuary Spa 5 Minutes Thermal Detox Mask Review



Sanctuary Spa 5 minutes Thermal Detox mask is a self-heating charcoal mask for deep cleansing and purifying skin. Charcoal based products are everywhere nowadays. This is my personal favourite and it works exactly what it claims. It is a self-heating mask to open pores and draws out the impurities trapped in pores. It leaves skin very soft, clean and supple. Skin doesn’t feel dry or tight whatsoever.

New Favourite: Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation Review



Today I am reviewing a high end foundation on my blog. Its not a first foundation to be featured on my blog but I feel more relax while talking about high street foundations than high-end because they are not expensive. I don’t want to miss anything in my review and I don’t want to put forward wrong information for expensive products.

Another Drugstore Gem: Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads Review


Glycolic acid is my favourite ingredient in skincare products and my skin surprisingly agrees with it. Glycolic acid based products replaced traditional face scrubs for me at least. However, it may not suits everyone. As it makes skin slightly sensitive. I never used harsh face scrub anyway but the way glycolic acid works, it is the much gentle process for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation.
