I recently decided to switch up my current hair routine and try out some Sachajuan products. I’ve read so many great things about the brand and many respectable hair stylists are using it. Not to mention, the packaging is so photo friendly and “Instagramable”. I tried two of their products, the Moisturizing Shampoo and the Hair Repair Treatment. They look so sleek and chic, I love having these products in my bathroom. However, I’m so disappointed in these two products in particular…
Dior has recently added another fragrance to their Miss Dior range. The Dior Perfumer created a fresh yet romantic scent that promotes love. The fragrance was created in the birthplace of perfumes: Grasse and the beautiful actress Natalie Portman is the face of it. “I refined the florality of Miss Dior Eau de Parfum to render it sensual and suggestive. It had to burst like that feeling of falling head over heels. A declaration of love, to love!” – François Demachy
I know I’m probably the last person to review this palette but I still wanted to share my thoughts and swatches. Ever since I have gotten this palette, I haven’t stopped using it. Lately I’m really into warm and brown orangy eyeshadow colors so this palette has been perfect for me. I think Urban Decay never disappoints when it comes to the pigmentation of their eyeshadows, including this “Heat” palette.
I recently got my hands on the much anticipated “Everlasting Lip Liners” by Kat von D. I’m a huge fan of KVD make-up, their products never disappoint and I never find them misleading wether it’s by the names of the products or the hype around it. The lip liners collection features 30 shades in total. They range from a wide selection of colors, almost half of the collection features nude shades for different types of complexion. Despite the fact that this collection features many nude shades, I find them very versatile. The darker “nude” shades can be great as a base for medium brown and deep dark complexions. For the lighter & fairer complexions, these can be used as brown, taupe or rosewood liners.
If there is a treatment I’ve done that’s been life changing to me is definitely laser hair removal. I can’t believe how much of my time it would save me had I done this sooner. In this post I want to talk about my good and bad experiences with laser hair removal so if you’re ever interested in getting it done, read more info below!
I finally got my hands on the most anticipated make-up launch of the year: Fenty Beauty by Rihanna. I love Rihanna and everything she does, whatever she touches turns into gold so I HAD to have these products because I knew they’re going to be good. I attended the press launch yesterday at Sephora in Mall of the Emirates before it officially launched. The collection features 40 foundations which is so incredible! Women of all color love make-up and it can be difficult for many women with darker complexions to find their foundation shade. It’s great that she created a line that’ll feel all women included. The products are incredible and I can’t wait to get more highlighters. Below you’ll find the swatches and my full review. Also, important side note: Fenty Beauty is 100% cruelty free, YAY!
If there’s a treatment that I absolutely love, it’s facials. I like exploring new treatments and I recently tried out the Hydrafacial here in Dubai at the Novaclinic. Anything that improves the health of my skin, I want! There are many benefits to the hydrafacial but most importantly, it’s a great instant hydration boost & it clears out the skin within minutes.
Swatching make-up products is one of my favorite thing to do. When I got the full range of these high pencils last week at the Hung Vanngo masterclass, I couldn’t wait to swatch them! Usually I’m not that big on eye pencils but after trying these colors, I’m excited to start using more eye pencils again.
In case you missed it, Smashbox has released a matte lipstick collection in 20 beautiful shades. In my previous post “New beauty launches I’m excited to try” I featured two lipsticks from this collection. I mentioned that I would do a separate post with swatches of all shades. Below you’ll find hand & lip swatches + my review on the new “Always on liquid lipsticks”.
I finally got to try out the highly anticipated “Lip Paints” from Tarte Cosmetics. I love the fact that the brand is trying to cater to different skin complexions by creating a wide range of nude lip colors. All the shades are absolutely beautiful but to my surprise, the quality of each color differentiates so much from one another!
