First look at FENTY Beauty + swatches

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!

Swatches + Review: Smashbox “always on liquid lipsticks”

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”.

Minimalistic nail art to-die-for!

Lately I’m really into simple and minimalistic nail art. Rose gold nail polish seems to be really taking over Pinterest. I love the super simple rose gold stripes over a transparent base coat combined with double stacked fine rings. Marble nail art is also getting popular by the day as well as thin, white stripes. I’ve explored some new inspiration on one of my favorite platforms: Pinterest and I wanted to show you the most popular designs that are to-die-for!

Swatches: NARS Color Collection + Interview Francois Nars

Another beautiful collection released by NARS Cosmetics. Only a few days ago I got the chance to play around with these products and I’m definitely in love with this collection. I’ve always loved NARS lip glosses, I think the quality is great and their nude shades are to-die-for! So I’m glad they’ve added two more nude shades to this collection. In this post you’ll find a proper preview + swatches of this collection and… commentary on the products by the man François Nars himself!

Is this the perfect scent for Ramadan?

You think you’ve seen it all with Jo Malone until out of nowhere they drop the most luxurious collection of colognes with each individual scent being completely different from another. The “Rare Tea” collection features colognes that are inspired by, you guessed it… Tea.  Not ordinary tea but from Japanese foothills to China to the Himalayas and for the first time; infused straight from the leaf into refined fragrances.
