Diorskin Nude BB Creme- Review

Hi girlies. I have been having a really rough couple of days due to my pregnancy but I am feeling a little better today so thought I would write a little review on the new Diorskin Nude BB Creme that my lovely sister recently bought me.

If you have been reading my previous posts then you must know my current favorite BB cream is the Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream, but I’m always willing to try something new ofcourse, especially if I have been reading positive reviews from my favorite beauty bloggers.

First thing that I loved about this Dior BB Creme is its packaging. It comes in a pump so it is much easier to control how much you are using and it is definitely less messy. The consistency is very light (lighter than the Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream) and it feels soo non-greasy (almost powdery) while applying on the face, which is great especially for people with oily or combination skin. It is quite sheer and gives a light to medium coverage. I usually apply a thin layer of powder on top of my BB cream but with this I did not feel the need to. It made my face look fresh and awake (despite the fact I haven’t been sleeping well). It also lasted throughout my 8 hour day at work without making my face too oily. I just needed to powder my tzone (a little bit) after about 5 hours which is amazing.

The single only drawback about this product is the fact that it only has an spf of 10 ( the Smashbox BB cream has an spf of 35). In short, I love the Diorskin Nude BB Creme and it is my new favorite. Mine is in shade 002. Has anyone tried this yet? I would love to know what you think. Diorskin Nude BB Creme

The perfect eyebrow pencil for natural looking eyebrows!

Hi friends. I am finally back with another post.

I am a person who loves brows that look natural and not obviously penciled in. That is why I prefer filling my brows with powder rather than pencil. I have previously tried MAC’s eyebrow pencil which I found looked too harsh on me so then I switched to filling them with dark brown eyeshadow.

I have finally found the perfect eyebrow pencil that looks so amazingly natural and is so easy to use- the Tom Ford Brow Sculptor in Expresso. It is dual ended, one side with the pencil and the other with the brush. I love that the pencil is slanted making it easier to fill the brows. The only downside is the steep price ofcourse. This costs 200 Dhs, but if you are looking for that perfect eyebrow pencil, then this is definitely it. I am a big fan.

Has anybody tried this? What is your favorite eyebrow pencil?

My Favorite Product of the Month- January

This month I have been LOVING the Too Faced Pink Leopard Brightening Bronzer. I must admit that the gorgeous leopard print made me buy the product but after trying it out, I absolutely loved it.

I have been using it as a blush and it seriously gives my face a beautiful bronzey pink glow. It is shimmery  so you might wana stay away from it if you prefer your face to be matte.

I also love the packaging and the large mirror that comes with it.

Has anyone tried this? What do you think?
