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!
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
You when you have oily skin, or even combination - you tend to get lured into those oil control, acne fighting face wash thingies which leave your face all tight, dry and uncomfortable. So I have shifted to creamy face washes which cleanse, but are gentle on the face. Sephora just launched a selection of… Continue reading Sephora’s Charcoal Exfoliating Cleanser
I have to admit, I was on the damn fence with this one. On one hand, it is Dior and therefore expensive. On the other, it's highlighters and who doesn't love an amazing formula palette! I ordered mine from Nordstrom.com a month back and have been in love. Totally in love, so much so that… Continue reading Dior – For that Backstage Glow
I have heard so many people rave about the Tarte Smoothing primer, the one in the jar, that I had to order it to test it out. The one I ordered had the limited edition packaging as well. Alas, it did not look the same as on their website. I thought it was jewelled but… Continue reading Tarte’s Blurred Lines
This past year Smashbox was on a roll. They released liquid lipsticks, the eyeshadow palettes and then there was the Primer Water. Touted as a primer in a spray format for hydrating skin - before, during and after- applying makeup, I picked the small trial version of this from Sephora recently. It's scent free (atleast… Continue reading Primer-ly water – Smashbox
I was waiting so eagerly for 2017 to get over and the new year to begin. When I was talking to my best friend of a decade over the last few days, she actually said she was tired of making resolutions and then breaking them and it made sense to me. So instead of resolutions… Continue reading Hello 2018!
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
One of the oldies but goodies for me. I have sensitive skin - oily and acne prone to boot. It is not often that skincare treatments agree with me. I have used and loved the Liquid Gold but sometimes, my skin just becomes too dull with fatigue and stress and I need something more. That… Continue reading That Glycolactic Mask from Ren..
The times my husband goes vegetairan (It's a weird habit), I have to really struggle with snacks mostly. Because of that, I wanted to try something different and, since we both love Falafel's here in Abu Dhabi, I wanted to try and make them. Here's what I have learnt while making Falafel over the last… Continue reading My little “Falafel”
