✨Blogger💞Collab: Shopaholic blogs and Madithemermaid Summer MOTD ✨

Hello Lovelies💞

 I am so thrilled to be a part of a makeup blogger collab courtesy of the totally awesome madithemermaid😘. She is totally pro when putting together MOTD’s, so when she gave a shoutout for bloggers interested in creating a summer MOTD I was very excited to sign up. 

Despite being a novice at makeup I couldn’t wait to put together a summer MOTD for you guys. This is more of a beginner look so for anyone new to makeup, hopefully you can pick up some useful tips here. So here’s presenting the Shopaholic Summer MOTD🔆.

Here are the products I used:


🔆I will mention them as I go along step by step:

🔆If you are a beginner it is helpful to apply scotch tape at the edge of your eye at an angle. This prevents the shadow from traveling past your eye.

🔆Starting with the NYX eyeshadow base, I applied it all over my lid past the crease. I also use it as a concealer. Alternately you can use eyeshadow primer or concealer with setting powder. Don’t skip this step as it helps your eyeshadows stay in place and makes the colors brighter. 🔆Next using the Enlighten shadow palette from Pacifica I chose the color Golden and patted it all over my lid stopping at the crease. 

🔆Then I picked up some Coral Sand from the same palette onto a blending brush and applied it on the crease to blend the two shadows and soften any lines.Next taking the same Golden shade on a flat brush I applied it on my lower lash line. 
🔆Time for a darker shade! I used the Han shadow in Taupey plum on the outer V and continued blending into the crease. Finally I added the color Skinny dip under the brow as a highlighter and finished off with liner (Misslyn liquid liner) and mascara ( 100% pure in black tea).

🔆And Voila❗️ presenting the final look✨

✨Shopaholic’s Product Review : Pacifica Dreamy Cover Serum Foundation✨

💕Hello Loves!💕

🌸As you know I had been wanting to try Pacifica products for the longest time and a few posts back I reviewed their Devocean lipstick for you guys 💖 You can check out that review here.

🌸Today I’ll be reviewing their Dreamy Cover Serum Foundation I had read really good reviews about it so decided to try it out for myself. 

 🌸Now I’m not a foundation wearer at all, I don’t need heavy coverage neither do I think it suits me. Usually a tinted moisturizer is all I use but since Pacifica products are all natural and vegan I decided it was time to venture into the land of foundation.

🌸Let’s start with the packaging, like most Pacifica products the packaging is beautiful. The cardboard box and the bottle have gold, pink and white🌸 florals embossed on them. The foundation comes in a 1 oz plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. 

🌸It offers buildable medium to full mineral based coverage with an SPF of 20. 100% vegan, no silicones and is available in three shades Fair/Light, Light/Medium, and Medium/Dark. 

🌸I went with light medium and it was a perfect match for my skin. It covers fairly well though no where near to full coverage. The foundation itself is very runny however it dries very quickly to a semi matte satiny finish.   

  
🌸In terms of staying power it started to crease after a few hours given the heat and humidity here. However it felt weightless on my skin which is what I want in any product I put on my face. 

🌸Overall I would rate this product as a 4/5. Have you tried Pacifica products which one would you recommend?

🔆Shopaholic’s Lunch with the Ladies OOTD 🔆

🔅Hello Peeps!💕

🔅Welcome to a boiling hot summer🔆 OOTD 🔥! Yup summer is in full swing here in UAE with scorching temperatures of 110 degrees 😥. 

🔅Today’s OOTD was all about dressing up and lunching with the ladies 💕. Since it was incredibly read-leave an egg outside and it would cook🍳 hot 🔥!

🔅 I opted for cool whites which I paired with my favorite broken in khakis. I love wearing white it’s a perfect color that looks beautiful regardless of the season and the olive khakis are a nice departure from blue denim.

💋Shopaholic’s Product Review: Pacifica Devocean Lipstick 💋

💋Hello Beauties!💋

💋I’m super excited about today’s product review✨I have been wanting to try the Pacifica brand for ages but since it’s not available in the UAE I was majorly p’od 😡. 

💋Luckily Amazon came to the rescue and I received my package a few days ago 🎉. 

💋The Pacifica brand features 100% vegan products that are formulated without: Animal ingredients (including carmine, beeswax and lanolin), animal testing, FD&C colors, mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, petroleum, porpylene glycol, SLS, gluten, peanut oil and other nasty ingredients. 

✨The lipsticks are available in five shades and retail for $14 for a 0.7 ounce tube. I opted for the color Firebird because it’s a beautiful, vibrant shade of red😍. I don’t usually wear lipstick but when I do i want to go bold and beautiful ❤️!

💋First off the packaging is gorgeous ! Both the cardboard box and the lipstick inside have beautiful gold graffiti type art on them.  

 💋The lipstick itself is very creamy, hydrating and nicely pigmented. The color is an orange red not a blue red as you might make out from the packaging. It is a bright color that will work great with a range of skin tones and is perfect for both day and night.  

 💋In terms of long wearing it unfortunately doesn’t deliver 😞. After 3 hours it had gotten a whole lot lighter than when I had put it on and after eating and drinking it was completely gone.

  💋Overall I would rate this lipstick 4/5. I would totally buy it again and am looking forward to trying the other colors as well. I am slowly weeding out all of my old cosmetics that are not vegan and/or made from natural and organic ingredients and Pacifica products are a great addition to my collection 💕.

💋Have you tried any of Pacifica products? Would you try this lipstick? Let me know in the comments 😘

Until next time xoxo💋!
