By Terry! What a blush!

It is officially cold and dry in Abu Dhabi and my once oily skin is a post partum Sahara. So I have been avoiding powders in general; when I do get the time for makeup, I prefer cream products. One of the easiest things for a literal no makeup look are cream blushes. They are… Continue reading By Terry! What a blush!

Hourglass Ambient Ghost Quad

I will admit that Hourglass is a bloody pricy brand to invest in. I will also let you know that this year I feel quite underwhelmed by the beauty holiday releases. The only thing that made it into my cart from HG was their blush quad- I do own most of their single blushes; being… Continue reading Hourglass Ambient Ghost Quad

Editing my Ambience

Recently, I found myself intrigued by Hourglass palettes. Normally all their Edit launches look the same to me, and I own nearly all their powders; this one was different. It has all 6 new shades, so I figured it is worth it to invest. The package is the same as the usual powders, just "bigger".… Continue reading Editing my Ambience

Chrissy x Becca – the OG Collab

Last year they did a palette collaboration with Chrissy Teigen (John Legend's better half) which they have expanded into a sequel and a whole collection this year. I was not interested in the components of 2018's launch; the palette from last year, however, was on my… Continue reading Chrissy x Becca – the OG Collab

Filter – Mood Exposure

If you really asked me about products - specifically powders- that truly act as a filter for the skin, I would only have one answer - Hourglass. Not only are their Ambient Lighting powders just beautiful finishing powders, I discovered their blush in Mood Exposure does something similar too!! The packaging happens to be gorgeous.… Continue reading Filter – Mood Exposure

Lovin’ Laura’s Gelato <3

I have heard and seen many reviews on the Laura Geller baked highlighters called the Gelato Swirl Illuminators, and man the swatches were good!However, to splurge on those teeny ones, because lets face it- they are smaller!- it was not quite sitting well with me. Till I found this:It is a trio of her best… Continue reading Lovin’ Laura’s Gelato ❤
