Have you ever powdered so much that it looked like a baking class gone wrong? GUILTY! I have oily skin, so I do powder pretty much everytime whether its over a foundation or a BB Cream.

I love lipsticks, not the liquid ones- my lips HATE'em- but the good ol' bullet roll up and apply ones. I have tried a lot of brands, but one of my favourites is Poppy King's Lipstick Queen! I found out about the brand from YouTube after Poppy launched the Endless Summer Collection and promptly ordered them. I have almost… Continue reading Lips(tick) like a Queen
Highlighters are everywhere! Every company is launching new and improved versions whether it be liquid or powder or creme, and everyone's caught up in this fervor. For me, it all started with Becca.

It's really funny that I take so much better care of my face and body and hair - my hands I tend to forget. And because I have eczema on my hands, they do not like it one bit and retaliate.

I started reacting to things I would not react to, my skin became oilier and more sensitive and acne prone and I was a mess.… Continue reading SK(II)N Care for Me!
I mentioned in my previous post about ABH Gleam Glow kit, that I was tempted to buy the Sun Dipped kit as well, although the That Glow kit was pretty close to being in my cart. Sadly, I am unable to order "That Glow" through Cult Beauty, Sephora UAE does not sell ABH, and I refuse to pay extreme… Continue reading Sun Dippin’ Glow
I have been driving everyone crazy these days - at home and at office - because whenever they have seen me, I have been wildly shaking the new Lancome Juicy Shaker in Mangoes Wild and applying it everytime I possibly can. I know, I fell into the hype. But I saw them in the Sephora at… Continue reading Shakin’ that Juicy Shaker!
I have been blessed with the weirdest chappiest lips - no matter winter or summer - thou shall flake and ache! It may be partly also because I keep licking my lips, but oh well... I was going through my bag the other day to sort of clear the things out and lo behold, found… Continue reading The Cheeky Lips(tuff) in my bag.
I have deep dark eyesockets and hooded eyes. When I apply eyeshadow, I look like edward scissorhands most days and a shimmery raccoon mess after 4 hours because I have oily eyelids and everything goes everywhere. Hence, PRIMERS! Usually, I like to stick to matte eyeshadows and the most simplest of looks because I am… Continue reading Liquid Metal On My Eyes!
