Let’s be real for a second – getting your hands on high-quality, locally made makeup products is really difficult in Pakistan. While we do have a few amazing brands out there, it’s generally a tough task – especially if you’re looking for something affordable. Well, our prayers have finally been answered because Sapphire just launched their new cosmetics range and we can’t contain ourselves! They have everything from foundation, blush, eye pencils, lipsticks and even makeup brushes – all categorised by face, eyes and lips. The best part is that they’re all high quality and your wallet will love their amazing prices. Here are our favourites from their collection for a flawless summer look!
1. Pore Minimizing Primer
Sapphire’s new range has a plethora of face products, including cream and liquid foundations, but our top pick is their pore minimizing primer. The gel formula makes sure the product doesn’t feel too heavy and makes your skin even and smooth – the perfect canvas for your makeup look. And with summer in full swing, this one step you definitely shouldn’t miss out on!
2. Candy Floss Blush
Along with their foundations, Sapphire also has a range of blushes and highlighters to choose from! For a fresh, summer look, we recommend the Candy Floss shade. It’s a soft pink that will add a subtle hint of colour and stay on all day long. But if that isn’t your first choice, not to fret, because they have three other shades to choose from. The (makeup) possibilities are endless!
3. Cinnamon Eyeshadow Stick
We all need a hint of glamour on our eyes now and then, but no one has the time to do a full eye look in this heat. Sapphire has the perfect solution to that problem with their easy-to-use eyeshadow sticks in a range of colours! You just twist them up, apply them to your eyelids and blend them out for that perfect wash of colour. Our favourite is the Cinnamon shade, a shimmery bronze colour that’s great for any occasion. Quick tip: build up the colour in the outer corners of your eyes for a smokey look!
4. Brown Liquid Eyeliner
What we love about Sapphire’s new cosmetic range is how spoilt for choice we are. Just with eyeliners alone, we have a variety of options, including pencil, liquid and water liners as well – and in a bunch of colours! For summer, we recommend going for a brown eyeliner, rather than the typical black. It gives you a softer look while still being highly pigmented. Their liquid eyeliner comes in the form of a pen, which gives you more control for that perfect wing!
5. Deep Pink Lip Crayon
Just like the rest of the collection, Sapphire’s range of lip products is vast as well! We get to choose from lipsticks, liquid lipsticks, lip crayons and lip liners – there’s so much you can do. For a fresh summer look, we chose the lip crayon in Deep Pink. It’s a versatile shade that will go well with any skin tone and can be built up, depending on the occasion. What we love about the crayon is that it gives you more control than a lipstick and is a comfortable formula for when you’re on the go!
6. Legendary Lip Gloss
Gone are the days of matte lips! The new trend is gloss and Sapphire knows that. Their Legendary gloss is a sheer and shimmery pink, and is the perfect way to tie your summer-ready makeup look together. For a subtle and hydrated look, you can wear it on its own. But we recommend putting it on top of the lip crayon,right in the centre, to make your lips look even more full and luscious!
