This month I have had the weirdest skin with the dry weather in Abu Dhabi. My skin felt dehydrated, especially under the eyes and nothing was even looking nice on top of it. Plus late nights and stress didn't help either. Enter my impulse buy in the form of Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer. This… Continue reading Nars Soft Ma(tte)de for me Concealer!!
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 long favoured minimal coverage over a heavy foundation. My favourite thing is to use a full coverage concealer mixed with a hydrating primer (Becca First Light or Guerlain Lor) and using it for light coverage. And after trying out so many, I was finally handed the best and most amazing option by Colourpop,… Continue reading Colourpop Concealer ❤
As my husband commented today, my skin realised it is a teenager too late. So now it makes up for the breakouts teenage me missed, by giving me occasional painful acne. Happy times!! Everything has been irritating my skin and I don't even have a clue as to what bought this acne attack on!! It… Continue reading Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions – Solved it!!
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
When I generally hear about Buxom it is mostly people drooling over their lip glosses- which are great; but not to someone who doesn't use plumping lipglosses- like me! So this not so interesting brand has become interesting to me because they launched their eyeshadows last year. I ordered them from Cult beauty where they… Continue reading Eyeshadows – Customised by Buxom!
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”
If you remember the fiasco with the Lorac Mega Pro I, it really boggles my mind why they would even try to release it now after three years almost! However, I am bloody happy that they did because it means that more people can enjoy the goodness that this palette is. I just hope they… Continue reading Resurrection of Lorac Mega Pro I
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 ❤
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
