Hey guys :)

Contouring which was once makeup artist’s secret, is the most famous makeup vogue in the recent years. Almost every brand on spectrum is launching their Contour palette, to help carve the face through makeup, including the brand which is known for its wide range of eye shadows, brushes and economical products. BH Cosmetics is an online brand which ships worldwide and in recent years they’ve broadened their selection and are keeping themselves up to date with every new world’s makeup trend. BH cosmetics have two 6 pans Contour & Blush palettes that works for many skin tones. All of the colors are matte with no metallic shine, or shimmer. The palette I will be reviewing today is number 1 of their collection which has some great highlighting shades, a dark contour color and two dark pink-toned blushes with a highlighter also. Palette 2 has darker shades with salmon blushes and is not suitable for Asian skin tones.
Features & Benefits
- · Easy to use.
- · Clinically Tested.

I have been using Garnier's BB cream from sometime and casually Pond's too, they were working fine for me till I bought the The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream. And YES here I have my new Holy Grail face product.
What is Tea Tree?
Tea tree oil is derived from the leaves of the tea tree. The tea tree was named by eighteenth century sailors, who made tea that smelled like nutmeg from the leaves of the tree growing on the swampy southeast Australian coast. Do not confuse the tea tree with the unrelated common tea plant that is used to make black and green teas.Click here
About the ProductThe Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB cream has been described by TBS as:
Perfect your complexion and fight the look of blemishes with our Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream. This dual action cream gives you flawless coverage whilst tackling the appearance of blemishes. Formulated with purifying Community Fair Trade organic tea tree oil from Kenya.
It comes a squeezable small 40 ml green tube with a range of 3 shades i.e 01, 02 and 03. On the front after the name of BB cream "Suitable for Blemished Skin"is written in small font. It has targeted the people with acne prone skin and sensitive skin as it has Tea Tree Oil, a natural acne fighter. The smell is like the strong tea tree and the texture is thicker than usual BB creams but creamy and easily blend-able.
|Left: Before /Right: After (natural light)|
My thoughts:I am using it shade 1 with pale/yellow undertone as 2 was too orangish and dark for me. 3 however is not for Asian skin tones as its darker. I was mainly attracted to this after reading the "Suitable for Blemished Skin"on it as I have really sensitive skin. It has a sheer light to medium buildable coverage, it evens out my skin and gives a matte finish though it won't cover highly pigmented spots. TBS BB cream is my first choice on those mornings when I have only 7-10 minutes to get ready for work. It set so easily with fingers and also minimize the need of deep moisturizing below. I have mix skin so I apply moisturizer on only the dry spots on my cheeks and above lips, on other parts TBS BB cream do the work.I squeeze a little portion on my finger and put spots of it on my face and blend it all together with tip of my fingers.It feels so light on skin and doesnot oxidize at all as it stays on skin for 7-8 hours. The oil-control and staying power of this BB cream is dramatic, it stays on my face for 7-8 hours without any shine and creasing, if there is a some shine a little retouching by setting powder doesn't actually hurt or bother me.
I will highly recommend it as The Body Shop Flawless BB cream definitely keeps your skin healthy and reduce blemishes and redness. I will purchase it again and it will always be part of my makeup bag.
Pros:1. Creamy blend-able texture, which isn't runny.
2. Comes in squeezable tube.
3. Easily available on The Body Shop outlets and large stores.
4. Main ingredient is natural product which reduces the acne.
5.Stays for 7-8 hours easily.
6. Travel friendly.
Cons:1. Strong odor
2. Little pricey than other BB creams available.
3. Ingredients are not written on the tube, except for Tea Tree Oil.
4. Very Limited basic shades.
Availability and Price:I got my BB cream from THE BODY SHOP outlet in Xinhua Mall, Lahore for Rs 1650/- (40 ml.)

We always tend to fall for things who are vibrant and easy to apply. Also the charm increases more when these products are of creamy texture, which means no fall out while applying and no mess.
As summer is leaving now and I thought how about a GOODBYE SUMMER POST featuring the product that was talked about the "most"this year? So here it is
Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme ColorsAnastasia Beverly Hills is known as the brow queen but has launched an array of eye-shadows and liquid lipsticks. In her summer 2015 collection she launched these new colorful water proof creme colors which look perfect under the bright in day light and tempted me to buy them ASAP.
Continue reading to know my thoughts on it.
This ultra-pigment gel cream instantly transforms lid with intense colors. The long wearing water proof formula resists fading, creasing or sliding- Even in humid temperature.
Remove with waterproof eye makeup remover.
|Anastasia Water-proof creme colors.|
|Back Side with color names|
My thoughts:This product is multi-functional because it can be used not only as an eye-liner but also as an eye-shadow base, blush and even as a lip stain (with lip-balm underneath). Also the creme colors are completely odorless, in case you are conscious about the smell of products you are putting on your face. These amazing little gems have crazy intense pigmentation.It appears on skin as vibrant and beautiful as it appears in the jar or pictures you see around on Internet. The texture falls more on the drier side but still it glides effortlessly on the eyes. The color doesn't transfer onto my crease (I have dry lids) as once applied these dry down immediately and don't move until you want them too. The product duration is creditable, maximum stay is 16-hours. Although unlike other cream shadows these colors can't be used as the shadow base as they dry relatively fast so wouldn't give a sticky base to powder colors to cling on. Maria though wants to apply them as eyeliner only (being the eyeliner freak she is *wink wink* ). My personal favorite is Ice blue because I somehow find it more creamy.
P.S :I couldn't remove the swatches on my arm with soap and water even though I scrubbed real hard. To remove the color Norvina suggests an oil based remover, to which I agree.

Not available locally in Pakistan.

Eyeliner has been in my "makeup essentials"list from more than 8 to 9 years. I feel like a sad baby panda who has lost his beautiful round marks around eyes, without an eyeliner. I started with drugstore liquid liners first and then I came across Maybelline Gel liner. After it there was no turning back from my love for gel liners. Although I am pretty satisfied with Maybelline Gel Liner but you do need to try different things from time to time. After reading good reviews and seeing many makeup artists using it, I also decided to get Motives renowned Little Black Dress Gel liner.
Your over all body needs as much attention as your face. Having the satisfaction that you are perfectly aesthetic from head to toe, gives you self-reliance and fortitude. You know a bold red lipstick is not going to help you in a party if the dry patch on your back is itching ;). In this post I will be reviewing few products which I have purchased recently, and trust me they are heavenly.

Hello dolls :)
We wanted to introduce ourselves a little to our beasties out there first,before starting a formal blog. Because we believe that a little knowledge about the person who is behind a piece of a written paper or a well structured article is really important, to build the connection between the reader and writer.
Firstly the name of the blog, Makeup Beasties. Trust me, we aren't real beast or big creatures behind this,beasties here according to Urban Dictionary means the person who are good enough for a certain thing, and we believe so we are certainly good enough to be great friends and have a reasonable sense of fashion and makeup, with an urge to learn even more.
By profession we are Accountants who live in most lively and colorful city of Pakistan, Lahore. We both are in our early twenties. We are by no mean Makeup Guru's or Professionals of any sort. We are just two girls who have a real thing for makeup. A REAL THING. We started by sharing our personal preferences and choices with each other and finally realizing that we need to share our love for beauty with you guys too and take this to whole new level. As they say, :
The more you share, the more you learn.Makeup to us is like a fairy dust which out sparks your natural-selves. Because frankly whether you go with tons of makeup or just a little pinch or touch of it, you will always be the happy-go-lucky girl inside and out. How much you are comfortable in your skin and by your choices is what matters the most, no matter what shade of lip gloss you are wearing or which eye shadow pops up your eye color.
In this blog we will be sharing reviews about products we have tested on ourselves and have appreciated or criticized, along with swatches, beauty hauls and D.I.Y's.
Like,Share,Comment and Love.
And always lets us know what"is on your mind, what is IN, what we are missing, what we need to know :)
Love: Maria & Sana.
