In the recent months since they’ve launched in the UAE, I’ve become pretty addicted to shopping on the lookfantastic.ae website. This online beauty store stocks everything from skincare, haircare, bath & body and more, and what makes this site more fascinating for me is the fact that they stock so many well-reputed brands that were previously unavailable in our region.

One of these brands happens to be REN Skincare. I’ve seen rave reviews about this brand, and was super excited to find them on lookfantastic.ae

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the Sephora Middle East Fall 2019 event and spent a great deal of time at the Kat Von D Beauty stall. Love this tattoo artist turned beauty mogul! I’m a sucker for art, great packaging and surreal shades of color, and Kat seems to effortlessly dish it all out time and time again.

Kat Von D Beauty has now come out with a brand new medium-coverage foundation range, and being a brand that values inclusion of all, the range is launching with 40 shades that cover very fair to very deep shades.

The choice of lipstick shade can transform an entire look, and at Sephora we are really spoilt for choice the rainbow of options.

22nd July to 3rd August 2019 is flagged as ‘Lipstick Week’ at Sephora, and to celebrate, all online orders on Sephora.ae or Sephora.sa get a chance to spin the wheel to win either a full size Sephora Collection Lip Stain, a Huda Beauty Shameless Lip Strobe, a cute Lippie Phone Ring, a set of Multi-branded Duo Minis or even Free Delivery. 

Are you planning to splurge on lipstick this week? Here’s a helpful list of best-selling shades to consider, available at all Sephora stores across the Middle East:

Hello Beautiful! How’s the holy month of fasting going for you? Hope you’re staying hydrated and at your radiant best. Hunger is not really a concern for me when fasting (I stock up well in Iftars!), and I’m getting over the thirst issues despite the summer heat by really glugging in my 2 liters post sundown. My greatest challenge is the sleep deprivation.

I get up for suhoor (the early morning meal) at 4 am, diligently do my prayers and keep hitting the snooze button when my alarm cries out its 5.30 am again. Yes, I have a very early morning start given the school run and the traffic to work.

The lack of sleep was creeping up on my face in the form of unsightly dark circles and puffy bags under my eyes, so I thought this would be the perfect time to give the Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream a try.

One of the highlights of my stay at Al Ain Rotana a couple of weekends ago was my much-needed pampering session at award-winning Zen the Spa.

Located on the newest wing of Al Ain Rotana, Zen the Spa has won a large number of accolades including nominations at the prestigious World Luxury Hotel Awards for 3 consecutive years since 2016.
