Pixie Pink!

Dear Glammys!

Happy 2013. Yayyy!! We made it; without there being the end of the world.. Hurrah :) that calls for a round of applause. *clap clap clap for yourself*

Now... Let's get down to business. Today, I wanted to share with you all one of my most favorite blushes ever. 

And the shade I'm talking about is Pixie Pink. As the name suggests, its such a pretty pink. My poor photography skills, do not do justice to the color.

Well, the color looks pretty dark in the pan. And if you swatch it on your hand, you'll think oh man you don't intend to look like a clown. But believe me when I say this, don't judge it by its appearance in pan or on your hand.

It's a very *in your face* sort of pink. But you just need to dust it subtly on your cheeks; yup smile, find the apple of your cheeks and with a very light hand just sweep it on and blend it. And it will give you a very healthy blush and will make your skin glow from within. It's not shimmery so its perfect for everyday use.

Since the day I've got my hands on it around more than half a year ago, I've used it literally religiously. It wakes up your skin and makes it look fresh and hydrated. It's my favorite goto product. So what makes it oh so special? Let me write it down for you gorgeous glammys out there.

Firstly its really cheap (PKR 725 from which will happily deliver it with perfection to your doorstep). Secondly the color payoff is awesome. You need very little and the lasting power is ah-mazing. It easily lasts 12 hours and won't wear off and won't rub off on your clothes etc. So this avoids you the hassle of reapplying every few hours and carrying it with you in your makeup when you go out to reapply for looking vibrant and fresh. One less product to carry, that makes me happy. I'm sure it'll make you happy too :P

Very frankly when I first swatched it, I was like oh man this is powdery and won't look as pretty on my Asian yellow toned skin. But I can happily bite my words as to how wrong I was. It translates so beautifully on the skin and does not look powdery at all. It's my saving grace on the days when my skin is feeling dull and sick and tired. It just instantly radiates the complexion and makes you look well rested and healthy. Here is a swatch for you guys so you can look at how it looks on the skin (without any base, primer or foundation).

If you're looking for a color which you can wear everyday subtly and which can boost your complexion and make you look radiant and glowing, then  this is the color for you. Try it. I'm sure you won't be disappointed. And its pretty readily available at drugstores or you can order it online too. I've been using it non stop every day for over 6 months now and still haven't hit the pan, but when I do, I'll be sure to re-purchase it because I simply love it. 

Give it a try and don't forget to share your thoughts on it.
Love, Hadiya
