    If you are looking for a shiny top coat, then Sally Hansen strength one is good
    I haven't found their matte top coat yet but that's the one I'm planyin trying next

    Also, WHERE is ever everyone

    ​​​​​​Is it just me or do I always end up with the same shade of lip colour that looks the same on my lips

    I've tried the opal I think it's called and think it will go well with any skin tone
    it didn't have this strong toxic smell the standard nail polish have which is unhealthy to inhale
    It is a nice colour, has some shimmer that I am not find of

    sorry I don’t have a perfume collection. Can’t recommend much from here lol.
    I wish I had a signature scent. Maybe one day. I think most people bet on vanilla scents. Sorry if this is it helpful. Hopefully some other sisters can help out.
    thanks it's still helpful to read, I like pear scents and the oykos pear flavoured yogurt is my favourite they had it as summer edition but haven't seen it this year yet

    I actually don't experiment with perfume so wanted to know from those that are more familiar with it
    It's not urgent or anything

    There was a thread on here asking about a scent for women during the summer because of the OP sweating due to layers so someone did suggest a perfume which was very mild and acted more like a neutraliser or those odour refreshers like febreeze

    ​​​​​​Can't remember which one it was

    I got a sleepy shower gel from lush. It does make you want to dose off and has lots of good reviews for insomnia. Decided to order the moisturise too as thought might as well and people say they put that on to fall asleep.

    I've also got those cheap teenage so brand ones but it's way too typical and noticeably cheap smelling

    I want something fresh and different, I like to read about the different notes of the perfume, obviously I'm no expert but I think the bottom base is quite important because that hits skin or fabric first and longers longer than the top note so it's crucial to have a good bottom note

    I'd like to try DKNY apple, I do like apple scents but don't want it to be too sickly

    Oh that's annoying especially because it's expensive, wonder why the actual perfume ended up smelling different
    Sorry I thought I replied to these …
    Yh it made me ‘lose faith’ in the whole perfume sample thing. Such a disappointment.

    This is why I hate shopping for clothes because it makes me feel worse, I already dress like a granny and it ages me, the other day a guy randomly says 'salam bhaji' r u jokin mate, do I look like your aunt (yes)

    The other thing is I hate the same look a Muslim woman may have, I know it is so silly, it's not a huge issue but I prefer not to look like an aunty with a black abaya on and those thick wool coats that are quite long, it instant gives me a mature look.

    Saying that, I don't like the fashionable look of hijab either, it's a nuisance, a lot of kerfuffle and when I see images on line I think it looks dirty.

    This year I just wanted to be more grateful and show that gratitude to Allah and enjoy the bounty that he has bestowed us, like a form of worship, why not make it special, despite feeling like a fashion disaster. Eid is part of my religion and the whole just another day mentality is something I always have and it's not right.

    Saying all the above, I haven't got an outfit so I will just wear my home attire as usual in sha Allah.

    Salwaar kameez is so pricey and is constantly changing in fashion, I don't think you can even get sleeves that are lined these days or trousers that cover ankles.
    What's the point of buying it if you will need to spend more in getting adjusted.

    I find a modest salwaar kameez can make it special, even if you don't wear make up, you can put attar/perfume on and a nice bracelet.



    True. Perfume can’t be worn if your going outside the house thought depending on the people present of course.
    just rewore something but it was a nice enough outfit.

Also because of depression but also a large chunk of the daily hype goes out the window due to this, because dressing up nicely lightens your mood when mingling with everyone else who are all dressed up.

    I dislike it when people say there are sister only places you can go and dress up. Like WHERE? Should I just go to a sisters only event/party just for that validation that has no social significance/relevance to my actually social life or lack of it lol, the people who actually have the biggest affect.

    It’s not comparable. The real vs the blanketed version of socialising. I don’t mean to negative just feel that way.

    just being honest.
