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!
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.

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
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 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.

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?
