The hijab trend has been going up high since the hijab bloggers explosion. The so called Hijab Bloggers has succesfuly make hijab looks very stylish and fashionable rather than looking plain and uncomfortable. I am one of the hijab trend followers. I like to see how they mix & match their outfit to look george while still being modest and polite. As the success rise on the clothing area, the beauty department is also competing and developing the need of the hijaber, that is a halal makeup. For my hijabi fellow, you might find comfort in knowing that you can use makeup that's safe clinically & religiously. The latest brand that came up with halal makeup series is the Sophie Paris with their line, Muslimah. I'm lucky enough that they offer me to try some of their products. And also kind enough to offer my readers to get the chance to get a free Muslimah by Sophie Paris makeup product! Yeay! Hop to the end of this post to know how to win a Muslimah cosmetics product of your choice!
I was confused and I picked a Muslimah Lipstick to try since I'm a lipstick hoarder now. I originally wanted a bright red color but the color on the website didn't show well which name for which color. So I take my luck and mention a shade, Zoraya. The shade that came to my house is this bright orange color instead of the red I initially wanted. When I first look at it, I'm like, "Ugh, this color wouldn't be nice on me. I hope it better not thick because I will ditch it." I have colors like this before and some just showed up off on my very yellow skin tone. I then tried it and Oh.My.Gaawwddd.. Mamamiaaa.. The texture feels very nice on my lips, I feel like I'm wearing a tinted lip balm. It feels so nice and comfortable and very very moisturizing and the color suits me very very well! Oh I'm sorry I've looked down on you, Zoraya. T^T
It really reminds me of the Revlon Lip Butters, the difference is that the Revlon Lip Butter has a very strong color pay offs while Muslimah's is more on the sheer side. I try to build it up but it won't get me an opaque color, my friend with natural darker lip than mine also giving it a try and it show up really sheer on her. Now eventhough I really like how the color and the moisturizing effect it gives, I kinda hate the way it shows up on my lips. It's really hard to get an even stroke on my normal lips, meaning, not dry but not so plump either. I had to start with thin layers, the moisture will fade off after 2 hours but the color stays. When I re-apply, the color intensity would increase but still looking nice. When I apply this to my-rarely happened-well moisturized lips it will glides on better although not the best. After the whole day wear, I can see it settles quite much on my fine lines, it's not highly noticeable when my lips in the normal state, but once I smile so wide, you can definitely see them.
I also get a lipbalm, Muslimah Lip Care with Vitamin E, which the texture are very alike with the lipstick. It is too, very moisturizing and feel very nice on my lips. This is the kind of lipbalm where it really absorbs into my lips instead of just sitting on top of it. It really helps when my lips are dry and starts to feel uncomfortable. I just slap on in real quick and smack my lips together. It makes my lips feels so smooth and comfortable in an instant. The moisturizing feeling will also fade away after 2-3 hours until I have to reapply.
For the packaging, I have to say, from the very beginning it showed up, I'm not a big fan of the packaging color. I know it represent the olive oil they use in it, but it's just really not my thing.
Now, enough for the review! How about the giveaway I was talking about? Here it is..
Every girl would always have a nice cute story related to makeup from their childhood. As for me, my fondest makeup memory would be when I first have my own compact powder, I remember always using it everytime I want to go out eventhough I used it very sparingly because I don't want it to look like a mask. After the powder has gone and I'm left wih mirror & sponge, I'd still pat the empty sponge into my face while looking at the compact's mirror. I'd do it while waiting for my sibling to get ready, I did it in the bathroom when I was "getting ready", I even did it on my yard under the tree while waiting for the car to get ready. I did it everywhere, just because! hahahaha.. I feel very stupid but funny at the same time, but those kind of memories had really made us who we are today. I'm more than happy to read your fondest makeup memory. Sweet, sad, happy, exciting, anything! Share it to me and let's together remember those time when we were so happy and innocent. :D
