Daily Moisturizer - Review

We all know how important it is to moisturize on a daily basis. My favorite type of moisturizer is gel and not cream. I just feel that gel gets absorbed or dries faster on my skin. I use Olay's double action daily gel moisturizer for oily/combination skin. I use this everyday before applying my makeup and I really love it. I think this works best for me! xx 

VS Rockin' Body - Review

I am so crazy over VS! I mean who isn't? I was walking across the shelves when the sales woman told me to try this product. She said that this is what models have on right before they walk the runway!! Now I don't know if she was trying to sell but somehow I bought it. First of all I love the packaging and all those words thrown like 5x sexier. It may not necessarily make you look 5x sexier but this product is really nice. It smells minty and feels nice and cool on the skin. It makes your skin look flawless, tinted, and glowing. It has shimmer and not that kinda shimmer where you can see miles away but its the kind that once you step close you can really see it and I rather have this than shining from miles away. Well this product is worth at least one try. Different women have different say about it but I think I like it! xx

I really don't know if you can see the shimmer effect in the picture but it is visibly clear to the eye!

Body Lotion - Review

I love to always keep my skin hydrated by drinking a lot of water and of course who doesn't love the instant feeling of hydration we get from body lotions? One good brand that I swear by is ST. Ives! I love their daily hydrating body lotion that is made of 100% natural moisturizers. It includes vitamin E and it protects against dryness. It promisses to visibly improve skin's health and I would add a check on that box. It feels really nice and cool on the skin leaving it smooth and soft. It smells good too. Iv been using this everyday and I from my side, I promise you will love this. I bought this from Etihad cooperative society in Dubai and I really forgot about the price but its worth every Dirham.

Go ahead, take a bite out of this product and hydrate your skin!! xx

Concealer - Review

Hello lovelies! Well when it comes to concealing I like my concealer to be light and to brighten my complexion or which ever area I apply it to. I don't really need heavy concealing therefore I use the Mac select cover-up. This works wonderfully if you need light covering. As I mentioned in one of my previous posts I don't really like using foundation in summer, instead I just invest in a good concealer and just dust powder on top. What I love about this one is that I feel that my skin is moisturized unlike other concealers leaving your skin dry or grayish looking. It comes in really nice warm colors. I use nc30 and apply it using the beauty blender. If you are wondering what the beauty blender is then check out my post on it 


Face Powders ( For Summer ) - Review

(Image: 29secrets)

Here are my favorite Summer face powders. Just when I want to achieve that tanned/bronze look I always use these products:

1- Mac Mineralize skinfinish natural: I loooOoOove this powder, I always need it in my bag. It gives a nice soft finish and a beautiful tan color. I use it in medium dark.

2- MaxFactor bronzing powder: This is one of my favorite over the counter products. I use this mostly to contour my cheekbones after applying the mac skinfinish.

Eyebrow Kit - Review

Hey guys! There is nothing like having beautiful, thick, healthy-looking, defined eyebrows. To achieve that you need a really good brush and shade. One of my favorite eyebrow kits is the NYX one that comes with just about everything you need, well except for tweezers (assuming your eyebrows are groomed). I think by far it is one of the best shaping kits. 

Here is what it includes:

1- 4 colors/shades.
2- 3 different stencil for eyebrow shaping.
3- comb.
4- brush.

It also includes a mirror from the inside and easy instructions.
