I got introduced to Canadian-born makeup brand Cover FX at the Sephora Middle East Summer 2017 launch, and have been contemplating on using the cute little Cover FX Click Cream Enhancer I was given ever since.
I am not sure why I took this long. As a beauty blogger I get inundated with a wide range of makeup goodies, and this wee product was getting side-tracked to the back of my trials list.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Barcelona-born fashion brand Desigual. Their offbeat prints and colour clashes always appealed to the boho in me. However, this very notion of ‘loud’, non-confirmative mix of prints makes many turn away from the brand.
Come Spring Summer 2017, the brand new collection at Desigual has gone through a major transformation. Sure the crazy cool clash of colors stays true to the brand DNA, but the range now includes a wider range of options for those seeking a more sober wardrobe palette.
Casual day out in a super comfy pair of boyfriend-fit jeans and blouse? I bet this is not what you envisage… Dressed in blue, dressed in Desigual. Always so beautifully different!
If there is one great makeup news so far this year, it has to be the launch of Lime Crime in Sephora! I’ve been an avid fan of the brand ever since I found them online via Pinterest, and have been buying their products from the States ever since. So glad we can now get our Lime Crime fix right here at our friendly neighborhood Sephora branch!
Lime Crime has been pioneers in many ways. They brought in the whole concept of matte lips, and their lipstick shades are anything but conventional. And then there’s their iconic Venus palette…
In a world of nudes and smokey-eyes, Lime Crime created this absolutely stunning masterpiece. The Venus palette offers 8 full-sized eye-shadows ranging from earthy tones to unconventional neutrals and rusty reds.
I had the pleasure of being invited for a sneak peak of Sephora’s Winter 2016 lineup, and let me warn you to tighten those purse strings… the new season range, set to hit the stores from 1st December 2016, is sure to make you go broke! There were just so many things I have added to my Christmas wishlist… a brand new storage system for all my makeup stash being one!
However, space should not be an issue with Sephora’s very own Geometricolor Palette. With 80 eye-shadows, 32 lip glosses, 6 eye-liners, 4 brow powders, 4 blushes, 4 contouring powders and 1 generously sized mirror, you have an endless list of makeup possibilities with this beauty!
I have always had an inclination for organic beauty brands, yet I thought this genre was restricted to skincare. I’ve tried a number of organic makeup products in the past, but somehow the intensity of colors and length of wear never seems to match up to the conventional stuff.
Exciting news… I recently got introduced to a brand new organic beauty brand called Naturalmente, and they have this entire range called Breathe Makeup Therapy which offers very wearable makeup range. Every product offered is loaded with skin-loving organic goodness, and today I want to give you an insight into their Powder and Bronzer.
Indulge in the deep warmth of rich, aromatic chocolate without the calories… and actually end up looking more toned and chiseled! Sounds like a daydream, but this is exactly what this gorgeous little bronzer delivers.
Inspired by a Hawaiian chocolate facial that Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer Jerrod Blandino indulged in years ago, the Too Faced makeup range has adopted the powerful anti-oxidant rich properties of cocoa in a number of their best-selling products.
I am heading off on a summer holiday, and one of my pet peeves has been trying to squeeze in all my essentials into the constricted luggage allowance. This time round, I am carrying 9 eye-shadows, 2 blushes, 1 highlighter, 1 bronzer and 2 lip and cheek stains in my hand-bag. Quite a stash you say? Well here’s news for you, this entire list of goodies is stocked in The Balm Voyage Vol. II palette, and its actually as slim and compact as my passport!
