Saying this would be fair enough that “makeup is a girl’s best friend”
I myself being a makeup addict will totally agree with the phrase stated above! Whenever I pay a visit to market or any mall, I can’t resist myself from buying one of a makeup product, even if I don’t need anything 😛
In this blog I am not only going to tell you about the best beauty brands but will definitely share some of my personal experience’s about the products that I’ve used, using right now, or heard from a reliable source ( most probably my own make up love friends 😀 )
Here goes my brief take on some of the brands!
Orifalme is a Sweden based brand that has managed to create its worth in the Pakistani makeup market in past 3,4 years. It has a wide range of products, form makeup to skincare to fragrances and hair care products.
They have a wonderful collection of lip colors, I’ve used a few shades but the texture of the lipstick is to die for, their stay time is also good and lasts up to 6,7 hours. Great to wear them if you are going to office or university.
Their skin care products are also very nice, and if you are a fan of BB creams then Oriflame’s is all what you need, it doesn’t look cakey at all and gives a very natural look to your face.
Its products range starts from 400rs and goes according to the product type and quantity, overall it’s quite a budget friendly brand.
Well Nabila’s makeup line has only one product which has it all that you need for your basic makeover. It caught everyone’s attention even before it was launched because it was one of its kinds of a product.
Nabila’s Zero makeup palette is an inn thing these days, this palette includes blender base, concealer, blushe, powder and lipstick.
Its introductory price was 4,900 PKR, now you can get it in 5,500 PKR. The best thing about this palette is that it is made according to Asian and south Asian skin tones, which adds a plus point to it.
So, if you are a fan of natural everyday makeup than this palette is a must try for you!
Medora is a brand which we are seeing since we were kid’s as our mother’s supposed to use this brand. Though it’s a swat based local company but since I’ve started buying cosmetics, Medora is one of my first choices when it comes to lip colors and nail paints.
Trust me! You can find some brilliant lipstick shades in Medora’s collection which are in fashion and same goes for the nail colors as well.
The thing I love the most about this brand is that it is pocket friendly, you can buy a lipstick in just 130 PKR and get the best value of your money.
Pro tip: If you love red lipstick shades then rush to market right away! 😀
