MAC Studio Fix First Time!

So finally I got my hands on the famous MAC studio fix fluid foundation ! I recently ordered the foundation and got a sample of the MAC prep+prime skin base visage. So I thought why not share my experience with the MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation.

So lets see what the MAC Studio Fix Fluid claims to do..
It claims to be a medium to full coverage foundation and also gives a natural matte finish. It offers broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 15 refines skin,provides comfortable and oil free control all day long, minimize the appearance of pores and gives you a flawless look.

Price & Packaging
The price is £23.50 ( UK )
30 ML/ 1.0 US FL OZ

Now lets talk about the packaging ..
The MAC Studio Fix Fluid comes in a cylindrical glass bottle. It also has a black velvet-matte sturdy cap which is very soft. The pump can be purchased separately for £4.50 . Overall the packaging is not travel friendly at all as the bottle is very heavy.

My experience
So lets start with my experience I’m in the shade NC40…It’s one of those products that ‘does what it says on the tin’, the coverage is pretty good but I find to get a flawless coverage it takes some building up and lots of blending!Although it is recommended you apply this foundation with a brush, i have found that it is even better applied with your fingers or a sponge for even coverage – it also blends better. This foundation is great if you’re looking for something to make your skin look flawless. It is very high coverage so I don’t think it would work for most people on an everyday basis but would be perfect if you had a special occasion to go to. I love the finish this gives my skin.
This is how it looks in daylight :-

This is how it looks on me:-

Pros :-
Good Pigmentation
Matte Finish
SPF 15

Cons :-
Does not come with a pump dispenser.
It might not suit very dry skin.

Overall it is a good foundation but I wouldn’t recommend using it on a daily basis it is only good for occasions. And it also has a great shade range. So if you are not on a budget you should definitely try it once.


Primark Haul 

Who doesn’t love Primark? I am totally In love with Primark! Well I hadn’t been to primark in a while as I did not get time… So i did have a treat last week visiting Primark with mom.. To be honest they really do have the coolest trend going on right now 😊

So in Primark i picked up t-shirts and makeup..

So lets see what I got.

So I really wanted to buy more t-shirts. So I picked up 4 great t-shirts! 

So the first one which I got is a white striped tee which is very comfy and at the same time it is stylish for only £2.00!! I got this tee from the reduced price section.

This black tee is also very comfortable to wear as it is very soft only for £2.80! I think you should really check out primark tee section. 


So the last two t-shirts are sleeveless. They also are really comfy. And they have this design in white which is looking really nice and cute. These are only £3.00 each. 

So next is makeup. I really did not get that much from the makeup section. I just got two things so lets see what I got.. 

So i got this really nice peach tone blush. There were more options But i got this peach tone blush which is in the shade Kahlua .This is great for summers. And it gives a matte finish. I would highly recommend you going to primark and buying this blush. And guess what? Its only £1.50! 

So I’ve already spoke about primark mascara in my ” Whats In My Makeup Bag? ” post. So i got this new mascara from primark which is the eyeconic mascara. So it says that it is a intense black lengthening and full volume mascara. It is really good and its only for £2.00. So I couldn’t ask for more for a £2.00 mascara.  

That’s it for my Primark haul, thank you for reading ☺️

What’s In My Makeup Bag?

I love reading through people’s What’s In My Makeup Bag? So I thought I should also show what I keep In my makeup bag.. This is what I normally keep but this change on a monthly basis. I do change the highlighter and lipstick in about two weeks. So lets see what I have in my makeup bag..!

Makeup Bag
This is the makeup bag ive been loving recently. I bought this from Primark it’s absolutely amazing for travelling I would highly recommend. It fits in your handbag or suitcase easily and it has a very good design which I’m loving.

Makeup Revolution Ultra Face Base Primer
I bought this after reading the positive reviews online. I have never used a primer in my routine but wanted to try. I always wear a light weight foundation. I have now been using the Primer for a few days. It is really effective. It is a gel like consistency but feels like silk and glides over my skin. It’s not sticky or heavy. Foundation sits well over it and I think makes it last all day. It is a very small tube so I’m not sure how long it will last but I will definitely consider buying it again.

Garnier SkinActive Review

Sorry guys I wasnt posting for a few months.. So here it is me back with a review. I know I’m a bit late with the review but still..
Today I would be reviewing the garnier skin active botanical day cream and the cleansing milk.

So I went to Superdrug and saw the new garnier skin active range which they had. There were about different categories they had that depend on your skin needs. I chose the rose water range. All of the products include rose water in it which soothes the skin and keeps your skin hydrated.
There were 3 products but I did not buy the toner as it was not in stock. I would soon be buying the toner.
This is a botanical day cream. This claims to hydrate and soothe your skin and it really is very good as it does what it claims to. It makes my skin so soft. It was such a nice light moisturiser but fully moisturised my face. I again loved the subtle aroma of roses and my face felt soft all day.

Moving on to the cleansing milk, I find most cleansers are a bit awful at removing makeup and they make my eyes sting, the Rose Water Cleansing Milk however, removes makeup with ease, no scrubbing my eyes, and no stinging either. It has a lovely soft rose scent, not too overpowering, and a nice consistency, not too runny but not too thick either , it works wonders and soothes my skin. You only need a cotton pad and just soak the milk in your cotton pad and there you go your good to go ! I love this product it easily removes eye make up and leaves skin feeling smooth.

I would definitely recommend checking out the  Garnier New Skinactive Range as it has everything for every skin type.

L’Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation Review

Loreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation (£ 7.99). It claims to last up to 24 hours. It covers blemishes, redness and even tattoos! Read more for my reviews.

It is a full coverage foundation which lasts upto 24 hours and is lightweight. It covers blemishes, spots, imperfections and a lot more. Which gives you a perfect matte base. It has 30% more pigment which allows you to use less product and have more coverage.

Price is £7.99 at Prices can be different in stores.

I have 24 which is golden beige. I have olive skin tone so i thought this shade would work for me. And it did match my skin tone very well.

I am happy with the foundation as it comes in a small tube but goes a long way for coverage. It is thick in consistency which was a bit hard for me to apply. One of the beat thing is that it offers good coverage and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.

Here are some beauty benefits of saffron which I personally use and are very effective.

#1 Removes Suntan
Skin tanning is not good for your skin it is caused due to sun exposure. And sun tan can make you complexion look dark and bad. But don’t worry saffron to your rescue. Home remedies like saffron and a combination of ingredients with it are a better option than bleaching the skin. Bleaching causes excessive dryness, burning and further darkening. It also reduces the smoothness of your skin to a large extent. Take a few strands of saffron and add milk cream and leave it overnight. Mix this with your fingers in the morning and apply where needed. This will lighten your tan and you will get a glowing skin.

#2 Cures Acne
 Saffron has anti-bacterial qualities, which is ideal for curing acne. It protects the skin from harmful free radicals and makes your skin flawless.
Make a paste by crushing some leaves of basil with a few strands of saffron. Dab the paste with your fingers over the acne to shrink them and wash off your face with cold water after 10 to 15 minutes. Saffron and basil work well to prevent and cure acne.

#3 Saffron As A Toner
Saffron can help in toning. Toner is used after cleansing the skin. If you want a natural toner all you have to do is mix saffron in rose-water and let it give its colour to it. Dab it on your face with a cotton pad. And then you’re done.

#4 Skin Lightener
Saffron is an excellent skin lightening agent that helps to lighten your skin tone. Soak a few strands of saffron in milk for half an hour to let the milk get its colour and other benefits. Add a teaspoon of sandalwood powder to this and apply the pack on your face and neck. Keep it for 15-20 minutes before washing it off. Regular use of this pack will help improve and brighten your skin tone. You can also soak saffron and add it in olive oil and massage it on your face.

#5 Saffron For Pigmentation
No other natural ingredient can help you with pigmentation only saffron has these properties.
Turmeric being a natural antiseptic and also a skin lightening agent. Saffron and turmeric can work very well . Soak 8-10 strands of saffron in a tablespoon of rose-water and add 1 tablespoon turmeric to it. Mix well to make a smooth paste and then apply it on your face as a mask for 15 minutes and then wash it off with cold water.

By looking at these beauty benefits of saffron it will surely compel you to use saffron in your daily beauty regime. Be all set to flaunt the skin which every eye follows 🙂

My Cellulite & Stretch Mark Story


Hey Guys, its me Nikki once again with my cellulite and stretch mark story. Hope you like it 🙂

First I’m going to talk about Nivea Q10 Plus Goodbye Cellulite Gel-Cream and then I’ll be going through  the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks

Ok so as nothing worked for me before with my cellulite I was worried and I thought i was wasting my money on another cream once again. I had so much of negative points that nothing ever worked and my cellulite has been worse. I mean what can a cream do with cellulite it can only moisturize right ? But i was totally wrong. I was surprised by the results in two weeks I used it after shower continuously for two weeks. It really did tone my body a lot and my cellulite was not that noticeable as they were two weeks back i was so impressed and I thought this is a god gift for me 🙂  The Gel-Cream comes in a plastic tube bottle. It’s a blue smooth gel with a very light and nice scent which was very pleasant to me. This product is fantastic. I definitely would suggest this to anyone who has cellulite and would want to conceal it. This is a miracle product.

Now onto Stretch Marks
Ok the same story and problem with stretch marks nothing was working until i found about Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks . For stretch marks I used to have bio oil but that didn’t work for me. This is a value for money product and I’ve been using this since 4 weeks. It smells like chocolate/cocoa mixed which I love 🙂 It does absorbs quickly. It really did help me with my stretch marks. My stretch marks did not go away but they did fade. The cream comes with a handy nozzle which is easier to use and  you are not left with a greasy bottle which looks untidy.

If you have this problem which I had and nothing worked for you. Then You should give this a go and maybe this time it will work 🙂

My Beauty Essentials

Hi guys I was very confused about what I should write in my first blog post but then I thought I should start with my beauty essentials. In the last few years I have known about my skin and makeup a lot. And I think I am much more confident now with what I do and have. As we all have our favourite makeup products I also have some and I will share them with you. These all are my everyday beauty essentials !

Face :- Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless
This is the best drugstore foundation I have used. It gives a matte finish which keeps your skin matte and ready to go.This foundation makes my skin look smooth, matte and soft. I use the shade 220 which is a dark rusty yellow colour. It builds up to a solid medium to full coverage. And it feels light on the skin so you don’t have to worry and take your blotting sheets with you everywhere. It is also good at covering up blemishes. And I really think that this foundation would look good on all skin types.

Derma V10 Q10 Innovations – Day Cream
I’m obsessed with this day cream ive been using this cream since 1 week . And the results I am seeing are incredible. It moisturize your skin and keeps your skin feel so nourished and soft. It does not feel heavy on the face and feels light. It has carnitine leaves which makes your skin feel refreshed and is for all skin types. Would recommend this to everyone.

Derma V10 Q10 Innovations – Night Cream
I also have the night cream of Derma as I loved the day cream so I thought why not try the night cream aswell. It restores firmness and gives a fresh feel to the skin as the day cream does, does not leave your skin greasy and I love this product. Feels slightly thicker than the day cream.

NIVEA MEN Sensitive Post Shave Balm
Ok so this product here is something very weird because it’s a men post shave balm which I use as a primer. I looked at this on Nikkie Tutorials on YouTube telling about this product and how good it is. It’s a thin formula.  This is the best primer and im totally in love with this. I have used a lot of primers but this one is the best.And lastly its affordable !

Beautifully Scrumptious Body Butter  (Cocoa)
There is a disclaimer here, is that I bought this from bodycare and it does not a have a website so I can’t link it.
Its been few months ive been using this body butter and it is so soft, it makes your body glow and it nourishes the skin  And the fragrance of this is like so yummy to be honest it smells like coffee.
It’s great for a person like me who loves coffee 🙂 .

Nuage Micellar Cleansing Water
Nuagé Micellar Water is so gentle and does not irritate my skin. First use, I felt the scent of chamomile was very strong. I only use a tiny amount. It is great if I am in a rush as a 1-step cleanser and I get the feeling it will be useful for travelling because it cleanses, tones calms the skin and removes makeup. The price is really not that bad for £ 1.30 for a 200 ml bottle. The only thing that sometimes bothers  me is that the smell is strong.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
This my Holy Grail Powder ! I always use this and use it on a daily basis. It feels lightweight and you stay matte. I’ve tried high-end powders and most of them, especially for the price. I use the product to cover my foundation and it hides the red spots on my face. It makes a matte finish as well so that’s great.

Kat Von D ‘Shade And Light’ face contour palette
Product which is a value for money ! I’ve been using this contouring palette since 1 year and I love this palette. It has six shades in total & includes 3 shade powder in Sombre, Shadowplay and Subconscious. And the light powder in Lucid, Lyric, and Levitation. For my contour I use Subconscious and a bit of sombre. It’s a great palette for contouring. And also value for money palette.

Technic GET GORGEOUS Highlighter
This is a good budget friendly highlighter. It really is a pigmented highlighter. So i was unsure of buying this highlighter and checked out so many reviews before buying this as i didn’t know if it would be that good or not. But after I bought it my point of view of this highlighter just changed. As it was very buildable. It is a icy snow type colour if you prefer more golden toned then you probably wouldn’t like this.

NYC – Smooth Bronzing Skin Face Powder
This is my favourite bronzer of all time i have the shade 720A Sunny. I have ordered this a lot of times. It has a good coverage, matte and easy to blend. And another thing is that it is the perfect dupe for Benfit’s hoola bronzer. Who wouldn’t want a dupe for it ? As we all love hoola bronzer! A great price.
Will highly recommend.

Eyebrow:- Anastasia Beverly Hills Diprbrow Pomade
Hands Down the best brow product ive ever used! I use the shade Dark Brown. But you should just take a little amount of it when applying as a little goes a long way. It is worth the high price. I absolutely love this product and have used a lot of them. I never tend to go out without doing my brows so this is something which is very essential to me that is why I have kept it in my beauty essentials.

Eyes:- PS… Lash Defining Mascara
I wanted to try an affordable mascara and then after lot of going to stores here and there. I went to primark and looked at their makeup collection and it was huge as they have so variety to choose from and its affordable too. So I bought this PS Lash Defining Mascara. And now it has become my go to, favourite mascara. I have loved it so  much that I have been to primark again and bought three more in case they run out of it or it gets discontinued. The formulation is just right  not too wet, not too dry, the colour is a great shade of mid-black .

Lips:- Vaseline Lip Therapy Aloe Vera
As I don’t wear lipsticks that much well not even that much i rarely wear lipstick. So my favourite lip balm is Vaseline as it soothes my lips and my lips feel so soft and nice. I wanted to share a story with this essential. Once i really had these painful cracked lips and then I used this as my mom suggested me to try this and magic happened this cured my lips in days and i was so happy and from the  I use this always and have it in my too. This a very important beauty essential for me.

Fragrance:- Nivea Pearl & Beauty Anti-Perspirant Deodorant
The main thing which I really liked was the packaging a girly packaging which looks so cute. It has a floral type of scent. It is very calm on skin and doesn’t irritate my arm pits. I would really recommend every girl to buy this product.

So this is it for now these all were my beauty essentials which are important to me.
Stay tuned. 🙂
