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!
Last month, Ryadh and I traveled to Maldives for the first time. It was our 5th year wedding anniversary so we really wanted to go somewhere special and what perfect place to spend your wedding anniversary than in Maldives? I posted a travel video as well of my Maldives trip so if you haven’t check it out yet then click here and make sure to subscribe to my channel as well! To see any of my Instagram travel posts, make sure to check out #NajlaTravels. The resort we stayed at was the “Adaaran Prestige Vadoo”. I’ve been receiving a lot of interest on Snapchat about the resort so here’s my feedback of my stay at the resort.
I get a tons of questions with regards to my blond hair. How I maintain it, if it was very damaging to my hair, if I get breakage etc etc. I feel like I talk so much about my new blond hair color but I still get a ton of questions about it. I recently had my roots done and a little bit of color correction at Tony El Mendelek’s salon here in Dubai.
First and foremost, I’m a dedicated user of Bobbi Brown’s skincare products – I use it a lot on all my clients. Their “Hydrating cream” is amazing to prepare dry skin prior to applying make-up. It prevents the skin from becoming flaky, it extends the longevity of the make-up and I recommend it on all my clients that have a dry skin. Their “Hydrating Eye Cream” is also insanely good and I use it on myself a lot. I think her skincare line is even better than the make-up products (even though I’m a huge fan of the make-up line too.)
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.
MAC Cosmetics has launched a very impressive product recently, the Modern Twist Kajal Liners. The small tip is supposed to be an “easy-glide formula” that has a silky, soft texture which is perfect for lining the sensitive waterline. I put these kajal liners to the test and here’s what I think…
I always find it exciting when a brand releases new foundations or skin tints, especially when it comes in a wide variety of different shades. I recently got my hands on the NARS “Velvet Matte Skin Tint” and I’ve tried & tested it.
Dior has recently released the Addict Ultra-Glosses for Spring 2016, the fresh colours and ultra-glossy effect are a great way to create clean and fresh make-up looks during this season. I’ve tried out these six shades and here’s what I think about it…
