L'Oreal Elvive Full Restore 5 Replenishing Shampoo-Perfect for girl with thin and fine hair!!

Hi girls!! any of you who have been suffering from flat, weak, limp and lifeless hair like me, dont have to worry anymore cuz this shampoo is amazing and so affordable.
My hair has always been my nightmare unfortunately I inherited my dads silky, fine and thin hair whereas my sister got a full and thick head of hip length hair from my mom. Well couldn't do anything about that but yes I have been in the search of the perfect hair product for my hair since ages....as conditioners made my hair really silky and limp I needed an ideal shampoo that would bring life to my hair, give a little volume and also NOT make them dry at the same time.




So when I saw the add for L'Oreal Elvive Full Restore 5 shampoo I went straight out and got this shampoo. And I have to say that I have been using it ever since...its been over 6 months and I am loving it. It give me volume, it doesn't make my hair rough instead my hair feels really silky smooth and feels as if I have used a conditioner. The most amazing thing is that it really does make my hair feel stronger! I dont know how dat happens but it really does that for my hair....I had never come across any shampoo before that would make my hair feel healthy and strong and encourage me to grow my hair longer than the shoulder length I have always had.

To get the best results from this shampoo I blow dry my hair when they are still moist. I bend my head a little and bring my hair over my face and keeping a hair brush on the inner side and the blow dryer on the other and straighten my hair. In this way I can have straightened hair with out them looking too thin. They have a nice body and volume.

I would definitely give this shampoo a 5/5 and would recommend it to any one who wants good results on a budget.

The shampoo claims to make hair feels stronger, look revitalized, feel fuller, silkier and have a healthy shine. I personally feel that it works for me but it is possible that there may be people with different texture of hair for whom this might not work cuz every body is different. But still its worth a try after all it is promising results similar to the high end hair products in less than half of their price!

Makeup Items Worth Spending Good Money On And useful Tips

Hi girls!! so the economy is getting bad and seriously; we, who are on a budget cant really indulge into expensive pampering and retail therapies and obviously cant spend loads on branded makeup and stuff so today I am just gonna list some of the makeup item that I think are worth spending a wee bit more money on so u could achieve best results.


Moisturizer:
So first of all i'll start with the moisturizer...some people prefer to apply a face primers but i personally think that if u drink plenty of water, dont forget to take ur multivitamins and u have a healthy to normal skin, then all u need is a good moisturizer under ur foundation. But be careful to pick the one that suits ur skin type, like if u have dry skin then go for the moisturizer that is oil based and if u have oily skin then go for an oil free moisturizer. Don't forget to apply the moisturizer 5-8 mins before the foundation.

Foundation:
Its always good invest in a good foundation. It doesn't have to be a high end brand but be sure that it matches ur skin tone well and the kind of coverage u desire. I usually prefer medium to full coverage cuz then i have a blank canvas to paint my face on :) People with clear skin can also opt for a foundation with lighter coverage.

Eyeshadow Primer:
If  u want good results from ur eyeshadows u really really need to have a good primer base for the eyes and as its commonly known that the Urban Decay primer potion is the best ever eyeshadow primer, so its a must have in ur makeup bag but if its not available to u or u cant afford to buy one then no worries dearies there are plenty of options u can consider as the eyeshadow primers.

Firstly there are the jumbo/normal eyeliner pencils which act as really good base and do make the color pop. Secondly u can use cream eyeshadows as base. The prob with both these options is that u cant buy them in every color so go for the colors which are basic and wud work under most of  the eyeshadow colors for example Black ( perfect for smokey eyes, makes Purple pop, also great under blue and greens), White ( for any light look u are doing like silver,soft pinks, yellows, greens any light colors), Light blue/pale tuquoise (will pop up any tone of blue), Green ( for any shade of green) and last but not the least the Gold (very important for Pakistani/Indian/Arabic looks.

So all in all u only need to buy 5 different colors of eye pencils or cream eyeshadows. But u do have to remember one thing that when u apply these on ur lid do blend out the edges well  before applying the eyeshadow cuz the eyeshadow will stick to it and then it wont blend easily and u'll end up have dense pigmetation in places u didnt want it. Secondly dont take these cream eyeshadow or pencils in to the socket line or atleast blend really well cuz they are oil based products and if u have oily skin, especially eye lids, they will make the eyeshadow crease and wear off in the socket line and that doesnt look good. So u see u can work with the products available to u if u know how to.


Mascara:
I cant stress hard enough how important mascara is in makeup. No makeup look can ever be complete without mascara. Especially when u have applied eyeshadows its a must to apply mascara cuz the fall out of eyeshadow on the lashes makes them look powdery. So do spend good money to get a great mascara. My all time favourite is L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara and its not even considered to be in the expensive list of mascaras but it has the most amazing payoff.

Lipstick:
Ah yes! a good quality lipstick is a must have so always invest in a good lipstick in the shade which is "In" in the season.

So this was the list of products that i believe deserve a good investment. Hope u guys find this interesting and helpful!
