Admittedly I am not a fan of the marketing faux pas by Huda when she blatantly copied Beauty Bakerie, but I will give credit if it is due. My search for a good setting powder is guided by Mel Thompson on YouTube. Based on her review and recommendation video, I purchased mine from Cult Beauty.… Continue reading Eating the Pound Cake (Huda Beauty)!
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
I have chubby cheeks, and I don't really know how to chisel out cheekbones. That being said, all the contour powders I have tried have not been best suited for an amateur like myself. This little Dior Backstage Contour thing, this got me excited. Dior makeup is generally subtle on the face in recent fashion… Continue reading Backstage Sculpting with Dior
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
Setting my face is important to me. Like really important. If I don't, well, it's oily and not pretty. But my under eyes are dry and my skin has been dehydrated in the dry weather recently. So have had a bit of a change over from the La Prairie Cellular powder. Still love that, but… Continue reading The Loose Translucent Powder – Nars
Make Up for Ever is a brand that has been around, I guess, since ages! But the brand is esspenseeeeev!! The first time I bought a concealer and a corrector - I was charged around 300 AED and I have avoided the brand like crazy since then, while secretly lusting after their products - especially face… Continue reading One in all for Make Up for Ever
It was only last year that the Natasha Denona eyeshadow palettes created waves over the internet. Everyone was mad about them, and also mad at them for being so expensive. I was one of them mad ones and I also tried not to give in to the hype. Not that it worked anyway, since I… Continue reading Natasha’s Lila
Nars has been recently killing it with their launches. I have fallen in love with their Unfiltered I palette and based on that I purchased the Highlighting and Bronzing "Bord de Plage" palette. Not released in UAE as yet, stocked on Nordstrom though.The packaging of the palette is gorgeous. I think this is part of… Continue reading Nars Bord de Plage Review
I love different components of face makeup - eye shadow, concealer, highlights and of course blushes!! Who doesn't love a beautiful rosy hue on the cheeks or a just bitten-by-cold flush? This palette by Nars, the Unfiltered I, stole my heart because it had the Exhibit A blush (which is permanent, by the way) and… Continue reading Looking Unfiltered -I
So apparently I had shifting to do.. and it was messed up and so all consuming that I did not even have the time to breathe!! Dramatic, but true and yet when I received the notification that Color Pop Cosmetics was giving free shipping world wide, my little heart fluttered. And we have a haul!… Continue reading Color Pop Haul!
