Review- Gosh Contour N’ Strobe Kit

Hi friends, it’s been months since I reviewed a product so here goes… 

In terms of makeup, the moment I reach out for a particular product every single day, then I know this is it!! I love it and it is worth blogging about and telling people about it. 

The product in question this time is the Gosh Contour N’ Strobe Kit in the shade Medium . Anyone who knows me well, knows that my favorite contour palette is the one from Charlotte Tilbury and I haven’t found a good enough replacement until now. 

Gosh is a drugstore brand and none of its products have disappointed me yet. The darker contour shade in this palette is seriously the BOMB!  It is heavily pigmented, blends easily and gives a contour that is on FLEEK. I’m obsessed. The blush shade is also quite pretty and gives a natural glow. 

Only gripe with this palette is the highlighter shade. It is quite a pretty color but quite difficult to get any product on my brush for some reason. 

All in all, if you are new to contouring and want something that is reasonably priced, then definitely go for this. 

Gosh can be found in Centrepoint stores in the UAE. 

Do you recommend any other drugstore contour palette? 


The best bronzer – highlighter palette EVER!!!

One makeup brand I am obsessed with lately is Charlotte Tilbury. Whatever I own so far is amazing and hasn’t disappointed. When I visited London, I actually went to Selfridges just for Charlotte Tilbury. I now regret that I didn’t buy more.

I am currently obsessed with the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow. It is the best bronzer/highlighter palette I have ever tried. I have quite a few bronzers (Nars Laguna, MAC Harmony, etc. etc.) which are all good, but this is AMAZING and the BEST in my opinion because it somehow magically transforms your face in a very natural way and the powder is sooooo smooth and is the perfect shade. The highlighter is also perfect in the sense it highlights subtly but beautifully.

An added bonus is the amazing packaging. So sleek and sophisticated, love it!!

If you are looking for a bronzer, then this is definitely IT. It can only be found in Selfridges or can also be bought online from http://www.selfridges.com who now ship worldwide.

Mary-Lou Manizer- the best highlighter ever?

Hi my beautiful readers! Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. 

I am here to tell you all about what I think is possibly the best highlighter ever (well, in my opinion anyway).  It is the Mary-Lou Manizer by ‘the Balm’. What a pretty name for a highlighter isn’t it? The packaging doesn’t disappoint either. I love anything that comes in  girly and colorful packaging. It is a gorgeous compact with a mirror, and comes with a ton of product. 

This is a gorgeous champagne colored highlighter with such a smooth, creamy powder texture (if that makes sense). There is no product fall off when you apply this, and this seriously highlights so it is important to blend well especially if you apply it on the cheeks. I love applying it at the inner corners of my eyes. 

This is my favorite highlighter that I own to date, in terms of texture, color and packaging. Has anyone tried this?

Mary-Lou Manizer cozts $24 and can be purchased online from http://www.thebalm.com.

Product Review- Benefit The Sun Beam

About a month ago, I bought Benefit’s The Sun Beam. I went into Sephora to get a primer from Benefit, and the SA just made me try out this highlighter. I am such a sucker for highlighters so I just had to buy this. I have used it quite a few times and so far, I love it.

I love its golden brown color which matches the skin perfectly, and I also love the subtle shimmer in it. It gives the cheekbones a gorgeous and healthy glow. It can also be applied under the brows. The packaging is also super cute and it is so easy to apply. I usually apply it directly on the cheekbones then blend it with my fingers which works perfectly.

Have any of you tried this? What do you think?


Hope you can see the glow
