I’ve been madly in love with 2 palettes and here’s why…
I’m officially on Youtube! I have no idea what I’m doing. None. I’m really nervous, but happy. Does that make sense?
You’re probably wondering why it’s quiet around here (or you just don’t give a damn) but I’m back from London! It was a really tough decision to choose what makeup I should take for a whole week #MakeupAddictProbs.
I don’t know what has gotten into me lately, but I’m totally getting out of my comfort zone. Yes, I’m wearing blue eyeliner – whatta rebel!
Nine days left until christmas and you still haven’t bought any of the gifts you thought you have planned in advance. Don’t worry, I got you covered. I’ve gathered ten gift ideas that I, honestly, would love to receive. This might turn into a christmas wishlist.. Continue Reading…
With good eyeliners I find myself wanting to line my eyes everyday. I don’t usually go for the perfectly winged out or dramatic look. Simple is what I like most. You know me. This is how it goes down when simple and eyeliner meet.
I totally bought a crap load of makeup.
So I didn’t buy all the products in this photo. I received a few “souvenirs” that you’ll know more of later in the post. I posted on twitter that I was travelling to Lebanon for a few weeks and made a
short long pit stop at the duty free’s beauty department that had 20 per cent off on all products. Yes, 20 freakin’ por ciento. Crazy is what my mother and I were in front of the counters.
Now not all the products are mine. I’m sharing them with the big sister and the mother. But showing you the whole haul was necessary.
First at the duty free was the Chanel counter. My mum needed a mascara and a foundation pretty badly. After reading and seeing so many good reviews, I ended up picking up for her the Vitalumiere Aqua compact foundation and the Volume de Chanel mascara.
Another Chanel eye candy is the Rouge Coco Shine in Satisfaction. I saw this in Tanya Burr’s haul and knew that I needed this right away. Now that I have it, I can finally die in peace. I have a feeling that I’m really going to like this one. I can feel it in my bones!
Then the YSL counter happened. Heart melts. The YSL packaging kills me. It’s so luxurious and heavy making you feel like a thousand dollars just by looking at it. Of course, price tag inspired to faint. All products picked up from this brand are due to peer pressure (damn you bloggers and youtubers!). The Baby Doll Kiss & Blush are in shade 3, 9 and 12. The big sis is taking 3, mum is taking 12 and I’m taking the shade 9.
Next is this gloss in the shade Golden 19. The perfect pink nude. In reality it’s a tad bit lighter. And oh em gee it’s so pretty and not sticky. Yves does it best.
Finally are these Kiko products. My aunt went to Italy recently and she knows how big my love for makeup is. She got these palettes and lipsticks for mother and I that I just can’t wait to try out! The colours are so pretty in reality that the pictures don’t do them justice.
That is all for the haul! Sadly I don’t own this entire set of goodies. Nevertheless, I am going to try them all and hopefully report back. Have a great Sunday and Eid Mubarak for those of you who are celebrating!
Have you tried any of these? What have you bought lately? Leave a comment, would love to know!
I’m going to tell you what’s not to love about it. First is that awkward pink eyeshadow in the middle of the palette, the ugly duckling of the familia that has no place in my heart. And second is that hideous fake chocolate smell that never fails to be the source of a bad headache. Fortunately, that smell doesn’t transfer onto the skin. Those are my only two complaints. Sheesh, that’s not bad at all!
I used this palette for my graduation look and here are a few pictures of what it looked like. Never thought I’d post these pictures on the blog…
Ladies and gentlemen I am proud to announce that this has topped the Naked palette, for the moment. I mean I’ll always have a soft spot for the Naked palette but I’m sharing this spot with the Chocolate Bar. There is new star under the spotlights.
What do you guys think? Will you be purchasing it, if you haven’t already? Let me know!
I dug up last night all the makeup that I haven’t been using a lot lately and that has been well loved in the past (past as in probably a fews months ago, just so we’re clear). Now, as my birthday is in about a month and I’m finally graduating from high school soon, I gave myself the permission of going wild at all Sephora stores to celebrate after these events. My mother doesn’t know about that yet though.. So I’m really trying to use up the makeup that has been forgotten for a while to replace it with new goodies. Newer is always better, right?
So I’m finally back from China. I went on school trip to Beijing and Shanghai for 10 days and I’m kind of happy to be back. Don’t get me wrong, it was a lovely trip and I had the time of my life. But I realised that heart belonged in Dubai.
Two Caudalie products were included. This brand landed in Dubai recently and I still didn’t have the chance to get my hands on their products until now. The first product is the Vinoperfect Perfecting Day Fluid. It’s basically a perfecting, correcting and moisturizing fluid that creates a radiant complexion instantly. The second Caudalie products is their Hand & Nail Cream. It rejuvenates hands by hydrating and softening them.
Then we have an Inglot silver eyeshadow. I love their eyeshadows: buttery, smooth, lightweight, easy to blend. But I’m not so sure about this silver. It’s very shimmery for me and I’m not much of a silver girl anyway.
Lastly is the Dove Purely Pampering Shea Butter & Vanilla Cream. I haven’t tried this yet but dear god it smells amazing! It is designed to do exactly what it says it does: pamper and nourish while enveloping your senses.
A few extras were also added to the box: Glambox brush which is super soft – loving it, Nstyle voucher, Laser treatment or Ultrasound Cavitation treatment voucher at Wellbeing Medical Center and samples from Herbline Essentials.
