Hits and Misses of 2011 (Makeup)

Here goes away yet another year. 2011 literally flew by.  It has been amazing, especially because I started blogging; a sudden desire which grew and grew and has brought me here today. I never imagined I could reach out to so many gorgeous people, when I don’t even consider myself any makeup expert. I have learned A LOT this year and hope I do more in the next.
I have always been tempted by makeup, but never put on much. I still don’t, but have certainly started hoarding a lot. My collection prospered from a tiny space to a whole cabinet. Haha. And to do that collection some justice, those beautiful li’l things need some credit and where there are some delights there are regrets too.
Today you can explore through my Hits and Misses of 2011.

After seeing some comments especially about Misses, I have decided to update the WHYs about each MISS.

§   Avon Nail Colour in ‘Rose Water’
It is a beautiful colour which is a torture to apply; very streaky and thick, even when I first bought it.

§   Luscious Pressed Compact Powder in ‘No.2’
I expected a lot from Luscious, but this compact is way too powdery. The shade is very yellow so I use it  on my dark circles, but for the face I just pat it. For PKR 875 there are many better options available.

§   Oriflame Beauty Kajal Eyeliner
I bought it after hearing so many good things. But it is a total waste for a Kajal that costs PKR 400. It is darker than the usual Kajal but smudges badly making my dark circles appear worse.  And then it doesn't come off that easily so I keep looking like a goth for a couple of days.

§   Rimmel London Extra Super Lash Building Mascara
It does nothing to the lashes. No volumising, no lengthening, no separating of lashes.

§   Jelly Pong Pong Dynamic Duo in ‘Ballerina Lace’ (read review)

§   Motives Luxe Precision Eye Line in ‘Sapphire’
A beautiful colour that doesn't show up.

§   Oriflame Visions Bootilicious Lip Gloss in ‘Bootie Call’
It must break the records of being the gloss with the minimum(almost none) staying power. Being so dark in shade it makes your lip look awfully bare later.

§   E.l.f Natural Radiance Blusher in ‘Coy’
The colour doesn't show up much, it comes off easily and the blush is very chalky.
