Review–Makeup Academy Extreme Metallics Eyeshadow Quad in GO GETTER

Eyeshade trios and quads are easy to carry and you get multiple looks using one trio and quad. I have been using complete eyeshadow kits till now and MUA Extreme Metallics Go Getter was my first quad.


I had never used MUA products before so I was not sure if I will like it or not. However, I think MUA is a good choice if you want to save money and get good makeup in your stash. Its not so expensive and you can get it at PKR 500/- only from Just4girls.pk 

The shades are neutral earthy tones and I personally chose this one because I think this can be used with any dress and can be a part of casual and semi formal makeup. Even formal makeup can be done using this quad very easily. Its just how you play with all the colors.


The eye shadow quad claims the following:


Following is a swatch of the metallic shades on my hand (I have traces of Mehndi on my hands that’s why I have shared two pics so that you can see the colors better in any of them):


What I think:

What I think about this product; I think it’s a good value for money, it gives you many choices of eye makeup using just this set of four shades. another good thing is that all these shades can be used with a  ny colors of your dress and in case you are in a hurry or you have only this quad with you you can create lovely eyes giving yourself casual, semi formal & formal looks. You can use it either way you like but here is a guideline from what I think:

  • First two shades (1 & 2) can be used as highlighters and highlighting the inner corners of the eyes
  • Second two shades (2 & 3) can be used on lid
  • Shade 3 can be used on crease as well
  • Shade 4 is also for crease and outer corner

The above are just my preferred ways of using the quad however you guys can use these differently and share all the different ways you can use this quad.

I hope I have done a good review for you guys Smile … Have you used this quad? Share your experiences if you have below Smile

Review–Soft Touch Skin Clarifying Mineral Mask

Masks are really good for your skin if applied correctly and with regular intervals; many of my favorite masks are basically homemade but some of the market based masks are also very good. I personally prefer masks with natural ingredients so the skin gets some natural food and I guess natural/herbal masks add life and glow to your skin.

I purchased this Soft Touch Skin Clarifying Mineral Mask (75g) for PKR 125 from Pehchan Mall Sialkot Cantt. It claims the following:


Inside its white creamy paste which smells refreshing. This is a thick paste which you can apply using any mask brush. When you apply it to your face you feel a cool menthol kind of feeling and skin feels refreshed on the application.


As per the directions you have to wait for the mask to dry in 10 minutes and wipe off with a wet sponge. Well I washed my face after waiting for about 15 minutes.


The results were very good and impressive I must say. My skin actually felt very refreshed with the very cool feeling on the skin and the pores were actually clarified. Skin felt clearer and cleaned when I wiped the mask off before washing the face with plain water. I am surely going to buy this product once again after it finishes and definitely recommend it to everyone out there.

However, please notice that different skin products may work differently on different skin types, so one product that might work very well on me might not be as good on your skin. Nevertheless, I personally find this product to do what it says and I consider it a good value for money. If you ask me I ll buy it again, YES I will !!


There is no frequency of usage mentioned on the jar but I think this mask can be used about once/twice a week.

Have you guys ever used this mask? If yes, how was your experience? Do share with us… Smile

Mehndi Designs

Well who doesn’t like mehndi … at least I love mehndi from the core of my heart and I am always looking for nice designs to be applied. I had been quite an artist for the mehndi myself but when I was getting married I was looking for some professional who can apply mehndi on my hands & feet. I found this wonderfully talented mehndi designer called Ali who was working in a Mehndi parlor in Rawalpindi. Since then I have been his regular customer and have hired him for the work many times. He was kinda the official mehndi designer for my wedding as all my cousins loved to have him apply the beautiful designs on his hand. I wanted to do a blog post on him and his beautiful designs so that he gets some acknowledgment of the work he does.


Following are his contact details:


Ali Mehndi Designer

Phone: 0315 515 4369


He gives you home service and for bridal mehndi he charges approx PKR 3K. It depends on how much dense you want the mehndi to be. He makes his mehndi himself and applies it with a syringe. You can see some of the designs here and all of the designs in the album on my facebook page:
