I have been vocal on my relationship of disappointments with liquid lipsticks. I don't like it when they are heavy, or too liquid, or too crackly and I have seldom found formulas that work for me. Till recently, that is. Dose of Colours as a brand is not available in store in UAE. I heard… Continue reading The Dose of (Lip) Colours
I love glowing skin, not oily and greasy, but that plump lit from within glow. I tried Cover Fx and Becca Skin Perfector liquids and while in less quantities they managed to do the trick, there was always the fact that they made it obvious I had some highlighter on my face. Enter the Charlotte… Continue reading Charlotte’s Glow Miracle!
I have a "matte love" moment going on where I will only use matte eyshadows. They are less prone to spread glitter on my eyes and also, are more work appropriate where I am employed. And having to pull mattes from different palletes in a morning when you are rushing and crushing is so impractical!… Continue reading ON A MATTE SAFARI WITH NATASHA DENONA
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)!
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!!
Amrezy's collaboration with Anastasia was the talk of town this year. The limited edition highlighter in a beautiful gold shade and a first time formulation by Anastasia, sold out very fast! It was so much raved about and demanded by, for blokes like me who never got a chance for a backup, they re-released it… Continue reading Amrezy Gold Hunt
I don't know why they call these palettes Motherships and I cannot tell you how hilarious I found the email saying "Mother has your discount code" etc. But, like every sceptic I ate dirt and swore to never laugh like a hyena, once I tested the palette! Mine was the Met Gala edition which is… Continue reading Bronze Seduction Mothership V, palette-gasm!
The winter is upon us, and in Abu Dhabi it means dry weather. Hence, its time to break out the hydrating facial mists which otherwise would make me an oil slick. One of my recent purchases is the Marc Jacob's Re(cover) Perfecting Coconut Setting Mist. Its a decent sized bottle in plastic with a spray… Continue reading Marc Jacob’s Re(cover) Coco-naught spray!
If you want to stock up on Beauty Blenders, Holidays are a good time. Not only do they release value sets that are absolutely a bargain, but they have stunning colours as well. I purchased the smaller one of the two released this year. The blender delight comes with two beauty blender sponges in the… Continue reading Beauty Blender Delight For Holiday
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
