My favorite lipsticks and lipliner for Autumn

Hi everyone! I am really enjoying the weather in Dubai right now. Summer is officially over and it’s still not too cold. It’s just perfect.

I am also enjoying the change in makeup and clothes. No more neons and pastels, but more of burgundy and plum.

I have picked out 5 amazing lipsticks and 1 lipliner that I have been continuously wearing for the past month.

Left to right:
Burberry lipstick- Bright Plum No. 15
Rimmel Kate Moss- 107
MAC- Rebel
Bobbi Brown- Roseberry 26
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter- Rasberry Pie

 

 

No. 7 lipliner in 05 Plum

My favorites are definitely the Burberry and Kate Moss lipsticks.

The No. 7 lipliner goes perfectly with all these lipsticks. Their lipliners are the best drugstore lipliners hands down and beats all the high end ones in quality as well as price ofcourse.

Which is your fave lipstick for autumn?

Burberry lipstick in Bright Plum

Hi guys. So I have been really curious about Burberry makeup, and quite a few beauty bloggers have been raving about their eyeshadows. So I visited the Burberry section in Bloomingdales recently and was drawn to the lipsticks. I decided to steer away from any pinks since I have LOADS of pink lipsticks in every imaginable shade.

I picked out a shade called Bright Plum (No. 15) because its a perfect color for this season. This costs Dhs 132 which really surprised me since it is cheaper than the YSL lipsticks which cost almost Dhs 160. I love this lipstick, both the shade as well as how it feels on the lips. It is described as a soft satin lipstick. It is sooo pigmented, not too glossy and not too matte, just PERFECT! This color is also extremely sexy and lasts long on the lips. I also love the packaging. The lipstick cover is magnetic so it just clasps into place.

Have any of you tried any makeup from Burberry? What do you recommend I try?

My first empties post

Hi everyone! So I am really excited to be writing my first empties post and to share with you what products I have completely used up.

Kiehls Ultra Facial Moisturizer: I used this as my night time moisturizer because it is slightly thick. This can also be used by men.
Would I repurchase? Definitely

Bath and Body Works Hand Cream: Only drawback is that these hand creams finish so quickly.
Would I repurchase? I already have but I keep trying out new scents.

Bioderma makeup remover: This is my HG makeup remover.
Would I repurchase? Already have

Bath and Body Works shower gel: I love their shower gels and it is the only thing I use.
Would I repurchase? Already have, in different scents.

Lush American Cream Conditioner: This is amazing and I use it with my Lush solid shampoo. It leaves my hair smelling wonderful.
Would I repurchase? Already have, in the bigger size.

Boots Botanics Organic Face Rosewater Toner: This is my second bottle. I really liked it but I stopped using it as it contains alcohol.
Would I repurchase? No, I have replaced it with a Clarins alcohol-free toner.

Amouage Body Cream in Lyric: I LOVE the scent of this. It is so luxurious and long lasting.
Would I repurchase? Yes, I want to buy the Lyric perfume as well.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Have you tried any of these products?

 

The best drugstore Hand Cream

Hi everyone, hope your weekend has been fab!

I just wanted to share with you all about my favorite drugstore hand cream. I am obsessed with hand creams, I literally make sure I keep one everywhere around me. I have one in my handbag, in my office and by my bed side. I don’t know if any of you have experienced this, but my hands just got drier as I got older. I make sure I use a hand cream after every single time I wash my hands.

One hand cream that I keep going back to is the Nivea Anti Age Hand Cream. This stuff is amazing because it makes my hands soft and non greasy, and it also has Q10 and UV filters which prevent ageing and age spots. I use this every morning before I leave for work, as it protects my hands from the sun while driving. I am going through my third tube of this right now and I will keep repurchasing.

What is your favorite hand cream? Has anyone tried this?

Cute arm candy from Prairie Charms

Hi friends. Hope you are enjoying your day as much as I am:)

So I just received the cutest charm bracelets from Prairie Charms in the UK. One of the main reasons why I wanted to buy a couple of bracelets was that 10 per cent of the proceeds go to a charity called GOSH. They have a special project called Project Blogger which gives beauty and fashion bloggers 50 per cent off their bracelet range.

Stephanie, the owner of Prairie Charms is extremely professional and helpful which I loved and her bracelets are just perfect for stacking. I bought a couple of them for myself and my sister. My favorite is the bright pink bracelet with a key charm.
