Makeup Grabs from

Aloha Peeps,

It has been a while I have not written about some of the makeup I have recently grabbed. There is a lot of unboxing still to be done so I can share my purchases with you people. 

Just a month back I was surfing the internet and came across '', a website that deals in authentic cosmetics and related accessories. It was my first time to shop from this particular website so thought of grabbing a few items for daily use. The website is easy to use and the purchasing process was smooth and prompt. In no time, I got my order confirmation email and then the challenge started to wait for my order.   

New the real struggle started where I had to wait for my order and I'm the one who made a call to know about my order status. Upon 2-3 follow-ups, I finally received my stuff and that is too incomplete. Two items from the order were missing and the rider told me that they will be delivered soon but till date nothing came as such. The parcel was packed extremely unprofessionally and seems like I have bought stuff from a local vendor. Now comes the products, all of them were genuine and thankfully intact. 

Now let's see what I actually bought:

I ordered three MUA (Makeup Academy) Matte Lipsticks and one NYX Blush. Was super-excited as I got the blush on discounted price and lipsticks on very good competitive price. 

MUA Matte Lipsticks Shades:
  • Fawn Fancy (Nude Mauve)
  • Scarlet Siren (Cool Red)
  • Mystic Marsala (Toned-Down Pink)

NYX Blush Shade:
  • Rose Garden (Mild Glittery Rosy Pink)

The texture of the lipstick is pretty creamy with a matte finish. It doesn't dry out and stays for quite a long time but requires a slight touchup from the inner side of the lips. These MUA Matte Lipsticks are easy on the pocket and perfect for daily use and even for nights out. The NYX Blush on-the-other-hand is a bit glittery but gives you a very fine peachy pink texture. Overall, my experience with these products are amazing just had a little issue with '' services. Looking forward to have some more shopping experience with '' until they improve their packaging and service. Stay tuned for more updates and reviews only on 'Glam Galore'.

Budget Bazaar - Grand Opening

Recently, I got a chance to attend the launch ceremony of new megastore "Budget Bazaar" in Karachi which was hosted with a grand celebration and utmost enthusiasm. The store is located in KDA Market, Gulshan-e-Iqbal which is one of the posh localities of Karachi. The doors to the store were opened right on time with a lot of guests and Karachi residents waiting to enter and have some amazing shopping experience. This was not at all an adult affair but so many children were equally excited to be a part of it. The store was beautifully decorated with colorful balloons to make the overall celebration more exciting. Everything was well-planned from the arrangement of the items to the sales services, in order to satisfy the customers by all means.

On the 3rd of June 2017, sharp at 9 pm this mega departmental store was inaugurated by honorable guests and the CEO Mr. Awais Dera of "Budget Bazaar" along with the staff, marketing team, bloggers and extremely excited future customers. The very first impression of the store was a super-organised, fresh and decent place that is all set to serve your fashion needs. The store is divided into different portions where one department serves the kids related items, one for women and the other for men. Being a shopaholic, this place was a wonderland for me and I was able to find everything I needed. And being a wife and a mother, my excitement doubled when I was able to find related items for my two guys. I was able to see happiness and excitement on different customers who were really enjoying their shopping spree. The services provided by the store were quick and potential and the cash counters were dealing the customers quickly and reliably. My overall experience in this megastore was extremely fruitful as this store is an easy access place for me loaded with whatever I need. To experience this excitement, head over to "Budget Bazaar" and have a blessed shopping experience.
