What’s In My Makeup Pouch

After all my serious product reviews, raising beauty related issues articles , I thought of giving a shot a light-hearted and fun post. I have spent few months of my life watching What’s in my Purse videos and remember having so much fun watching them. So I thought of doing one myself in a blog post form and of course a video related to this post will be up too shortly. But I thought of starting first with my makeup pouch then a separate post for ” What’s in my bag” 😀

So here is what you will find inside my makeup pouch

Givenchy-JaneIredaleI carry 2 makeup pouches in my purse and one mini brush holder. The first one I have is the Jane Iredale Makeup Pouch that came along with the starter kit Basharacare sent to me. Check the related post here. The second I have is the Givenchy makeup pouch which I received as a gift upon purchasing from Sephora. These two are my favorite makeup bags, awesome quality and very classy. The third is a mini brush holder that I used to hold my spooly and the pencil products I have.

what is in my makeup pouchProducts: Try clicking the names of the products to see the detailed review I did( if I did). Some I haven’t reviewed yet, so obviously it won’t be linkable.

  1. Urban Decay Naked Flush Palette. 

I carry it as it has a blush, bronzer and highlighter inside. Very compact as you have all three products in one place.

2. Jane Iredale Hydration Spray:

This spray has been so helpful and handy. Dubai’s weather will either cook your skin or melt it down. This spray is so refreshing at the same time so hydrating that going out of the house without this has become impossible.

3. L.A Girl Matte Pigment Gloss : Lately I have been obsessed with matte lippies and this brand has topped my list,so is the reason you will find this in my purse. I carry with me a nude shade , ready for times when I need to leave the house hurriedly without any makeup on, this lip product will just do its job when I am in the car.

4. Givenchy Mascara:

For some reasons I started liking this mascara for everyday use when I am in mood of having just a natural look. It is also ideal for touch ups if I’d need to or if I needed to do my makeup in the car and the size is so travel friendly and can be tossed easily from one bag to the other.

5. Essence Brow Mascara: This brow mascara is one brow product that I have reached to a lot lately and one of the most important as anytime my brows can deceive me and won’t be in place ,so I need this to put them back in shape. Can’t get enough of this. My eyebrows are so stubborn.

6. Sephora Makeup remover- My holy grail makeup remover esp for my eyes. I will definitely write a detailed review on this. Very much handy to be in purse if you would need to clean up some makeup mess on your beautiful face.

7. Jergens Hand cream- Who doesn’t need a handcream in the purse?

8. Evidence L’Eau De Parfum- Since it is the only travel sized perfume I own, it was the first to be in my purse. Not to mention the heavenly scent! It is just a wow.

9. Oil Control Film – If you have an oily skin, girl you need this.

10. Hand Sanitizer

11. Wet tissues

12. Some eyeliners and lip liners which is inside the mini brush kit.

13. Spooly for my brows

14. Random stuff as hair bands, bangles, scarf pins, Q-tips etc.

So these are all you will find in my makeup kit. I have one separate brush for my blush but I put that in my purse as it won’t fit in my pouches. Hope you guys enjoyed looking at the stuff inside my makeup purse. If you have a similar post to this, do tag me and I will check it out.

Jane Iredale Starter Kit(From Basharacare)- First Impression

I’m so excited to share with you all today’s post due to two reasons:

1. It is of a brand not everyone have heard of. Jane Iredale is known to be skincare makeup due to the skin friendly, cruelty-free ingredients the products contain, will enhance your beauty as well as nourish your skin at the same time.

2. It was sent to me for reviewing by Basharacare.

This is going to be a first impression post as I haven’t actually tried the stuff yet except for one item and I will do a mini review on that. Detailed review will be posted once I have used the products.

The Packaging:

The pouch is made of a very good quality material. The gold plate where the logo is on, is of metal if I’m not wrong. If plastic, then it is definitely made of the highest quality.

The products are wrapped in this cute paper envelope thing with “jane iredale” written all over.

This is probably the most interesting product in the kit as I haven’t tried in hydration spray yet. So this one will actually introduce me tho such products.

janeiredalepressedbase3. Pure Pressed Base, Amazing Base and a Face Brush

Pure pressed based is a mineral foundation and I actually have used it once. The coverage is surprisingly very good. I’m so happy as I got the perfect shade and on top of that it gave me a flawless look, very light and very good coverage. It doesn’t feel or look cakey. Probably one of the best foundations I have come across.

Amazing base is a loose mineral powder and a very cute brush comes along with these two face products.

basharacaresamplesWith this amazing kit, I received three samples, by the way when you purchase from Basharacare, they will send along 3 free samples for you to try. I have yet to try these samples except for one which I have been using already, the Bioderma Cleanser.

Thank you so much Basharacare for this awesome gift. ❤ I love them already

What do you think of this brand? 😀


My Recommended Online Beauty Stores/Sellers in U.A.E

Hello Glamorous Gals!

I know how you feel. Yes, you! If you are reading this, then you might be someone living in one of U.A.E’s emirates and on the look out for reliable,trustworthy online stores that delivers at your door step. Ever since I came here in Dubai, all I did was online shopping. Not proud of it though. But what can a new comer do to divert attention and kill homesickness? shopping….makeup and lots of makeup shopping.!!! 😛 It’s been 5 years now, and during this period, came across different Facebook sellers, some cheated but mostly very true to their work. Besides Facebook I started exploring local websites too.

Why do most of us shop online?

There may be plenty of reasons , but mine are:

1. Convenience of getting all the products at my doorstep.

2. Kill my urge to shop. Come one let’s admit it, online shopping is better than shopping directly from malls. I’ll end up buying 20 products in malls instead of 5. I can hold myself when doing online shopping due to certain doubts such as, product might not be exactly as how it is in pictures. So at most, I can buy eye pencils,lip pencils, eyeshadow palettes , primers etc where there won’t be an issue in getting the right shades.

3. When I’m not in mood of informing hubby dear about my shopping, online is best 😛 (I’m not proud of this,trust me)

But we hesitate sometimes for the following reasons:

1. Advance payment required

2. Unknown seller

3. Doubtful authenticity of product

4. Longer delivery period

5. Not knowledgeable enough (will elaborate this in another post)

Today I’ll be solving your problem to some extent by sharing with you all my recommended Online Beauty stores/sellers in United Arab Emirates. I have personally ordered from each and every one of them , no need to worry about the products’ authenticity as they are reliable, trustworthy with very good customer service and above all they offer Cash On Delivery. Yayy!  Below are the list. not in any particular order.

1. 1st in my list is Ebeautique. My favorite and trusted seller as well as one of my sponsors. You can check their banner at the right hand side bar and click to go directly to their online store. For this one, you need to have an Instgaram account as the products are posted over there. You will get all brands from them on pre-order basis. Once products are available, delivery within 2 days.

2. Indelath  

A Facebook online page that deals with all make up brands from drugstore to high-end. They operate from U.A.E as well as Pakistan. Very good customer service, the lady dealing with me is very polite and patient enough to bear all my queries regarding pricing. As should any seller. 🙂 But let me tell you, I have encountered rude ones too, so if you find someone very nice, you are lucky. LOL

3. BasharaCare is an online beauty store based in Dubai, U.A.E that provides elite choices of quality skincare products. This online store is a bit different from others as they don’t deal with “common” brands. When I first visited their online store, I was shocked to see a lot of brands I haven’t heard before (beauty brand and I don’t know? How can that happen!)but the variety of skincare products made me do my research about the brands and was actually surprised that those are some of the finest luxury skincare brands one can get. I wasted no time and made my first order. ❤ If you are someone who values skin’s health, then you should try some of their products. Go to their website and explore!

4. Avon, FM & other cosmetic products is a Facebook online store similar to Indelath. They deal in all kinds of beauty products of almost all brands from drugstore to high-end. I bought my very first NYX glitter palette from them. ❤ Customer service is very good, quick delivery and very cooperative. I have ordered more from them. ❤ So excited for those.

5. Laylam is one of the most trusted online store , they have brands like Sigma Brushes, Sleek and Coastal Scents. There is no doubt that you will get 100% authentic stuff from them. The website is specially designed for mothers who can’t just go out in the market to get their needs, so they provide us ladies beauty essentials as well as baby necessities too in the comfort of our homes.

6.Alshop is an online store that not only provides us with beauty products but also other items we need in our daily lives, perfumes, mobiles, laptops etc. They have almost all brands that aren’t available in our beauty stores.  Brands that can only be bought online such as BH Cosmetics, Coastal Scents, Red Chilli etc. Takes a while for delivery around a week, but still okay. They sell 100% genuine products which is a plus point.

7. Glamazle  It’s been a while since I ordered from them. But last time I did, it was a good experience with very quick delivery service. But a lot of disappointment at times when you finally see the products you wanted after searching the whole world for it,just to know it’s out of stock :/ But nevertheless , worth everything. You will be amazed by the pricing. While Laylam and Alshop are a bit costly, Glamazle is opposite. They are a bit lesser than those two.
