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.

My Favorite Blending Brushes

A secret to perfect eye makeup look is a lot of blending. We do not want to show anyone as if a painter used our eyes as canvas. When doing my makeup, I always remember these golden words-

Yes, yes ,yes to blending and No to harsh lines”

I always say this, there are no rules when it comes to makeup. If I find a brush that works perfectly on the crease of my eyes, is soft, and fluffy, I will use it as blending brush. All depends on what look I am going for that day.

So here are my favorite brushes to blend my eyeshadows , whether matte or shimmery. I own way more than a normal girl should own(not proud) brushes but I picked my top most favorites.

Me favorite blending brushes
Me favorite blending brushes

So I have here :

2 Sigma Dual brush I got from my Eyeshadow palettes in Dare and Flare- The black bristles shed a bit otherwise it is just my ideal.

2 Real Techniques brushes- The very soft bristles makes blending of multiple eye shades on the crease.

1 dual eye brush from my Anastasia Beverly Hills World Traveler Palette. – This brush is my no.1 favorite because of the size. Perfect for cut crease looks.

1 from Bh cosmetics which I grab most of the time. This came in a set I bought not too long ago and it was such a bomb deal. Check here.

1 bought from a Facebook seller ,a dupe of BH Cosmetics Sculpt line and it is amazing.

What is your favorite blending brush?

Remember, our brushes need equal care and we should wash them regularly. Check out this post to see how I clean my makeup brushes.

Happy Makeup- ING ❤

Hello Beauties,

It’s all about Fall in the beauty and fashion world. I couldn’t resist but dig into my makeup stash fro some “fall-ish” products which I am going to share with you all.

Thinking smile So I always opt for online stores/sellers that can get all my desired products from U.S for a lesser price than what the market offers. I wish I had a best friend in the U.S who would volunteer to ship to me and I can whole heartedly shop from the U.S websites.

Review- GlamGals Color Stay Dual Lip Gloss

If you guys are following me on Instagram and Facebook, you must have seen the pictures I posted of the beauty products sent to me by GlamGals for reviewing. Mini reviews have also been posted. Thanks to this awesome company, I’ve been introduced to another range of beauty goodies that I get to try and like. Liked or loved, that we will find out as I share my reviews.

Today I have for you, the GlamGals Color Stay Dual Lip Gloss. If you have noticed, I have been adding lots of videos in my blog posts. I really enjoy the few seconds video I make to show the product, I think you get an idea of how the product actually looks like through video not unless you have captured a very good picture. But since I am still learning to do product photo shoot, bear with my video craze. 😛 I think I can take decent pictures but the silver packaging of this product just challenged me a lot. LOL

Product Details:

Brand: GlamGals

Name: Color Stay Dual Lip Gloss

Shade: DLG12

Price: AED35

Ingredients: 20150925_184438

The Packaging:

20150925_183830

Unlike any other lip gloss I ever held in my hands, this surely was heavier. Normally, I barely feel I’m even holding anything but this one was screaming “Hello, I’m here!” The tube came in a silver box with all necessary details printed on like ingredients, labels, application tips, address, production/expiry date etc. The lip gloss tube is of very good quality plastic material, reminds me of my acrylic drawers. Since it is dual ended, one end has the colored lip gloss and the other end with the transparent one.

What they say: Triple effects- Condition, Moisturizing and Long stay all day wear with 3D Diamond Shine.

The Inside:

pizap.com14431930677981

On one end, you get the colored pigment and on the other end is a transparent product that is supposed to moisturize your lips. It is a beautiful red shade , the formula is perfect not too thick and not too thin, covers the lips’ own pigmentation, glides on very well and applies evenly. The transparent end of the lip gloss is a very shiny liquid which has exactly the consistency you need.

How to apply: Apply the colored lip gloss on lips, wait for about 2 minutes then coat it with the moisturizing lip gloss.

pizap.com14431937318101I wore only the lip gloss for 2 days, the whole day and it is very good on its own only. If you are a fan of matte lips, you will be happy with it this way. It is not drying and do not chap your lips. I was a bit skeptical using the moisturizing lip gloss at first as I thought the brush might pick most of the red color, but it actually did the opposite. It was very easy to apply without smudging my red pigment and it actually felt very good on the lips. I felt it actually moisturized my lips at the same time giving my lips that non-overwhelming spark.

Pros:

  1. cruelty-free (has a bunny on its box)
  2. not drying
  3. perfect formula
  4. pigmented
  5. moisturising but not sticky
  6. good quality at affordable price
  7. 15 shades to choose from
  8. long wear
  9. quality packaging

Cons:

Very light smell when applying, not really that bothering as it fades away very quickly

Shades: pizap.com14431856844581

Current outlets :
1)Deira City Centre (outside Sephora)
2)Dubai outlet mall (outside Cold Stone)
3)Arabian Centre midriff (outside Costs coffee)

Makeup Series- Lips Routine for Beginners

Finally we are here today for the last segment of the Makeup Series for Beginners and I had a step by step post on how to apply makeup a month ago and split it up into different segments. Foundation Routine, Eye Routine and today we have the Lips Routine.

You will find below how I apply my lipstick/lip gloss and what steps I follow when preparing my lips for that.

Steps in order:

  1. Exfoliate lips- Make it a habit to exfoliate your lips. Lipstick makes dry and chapped lips more visible hence to avoid that, exfoliate regularly. While there are many lip exfoliators/scrubs available in the market, I use my very own home-made lip scrub. Do you want to make your own too? Click the picture to know how.
dsc_5127
DIY- LIP EXFOLIATORCondition Lips-

2. Condition Lips- Always condition your lips. Keep it hydrated all the time to avoid gross flaky dry skin. There are plenty of lip conditioners and balms in the market and one very reasonable option for that is Vaseline also known as Petroleum Jelly. You do not have to spend a fortune on lip balms. You can find it in all price range. My favorite lip balm at the moment is from Utama Spice. click the picture below to know why.

Utama Spice Lip Balm

  3. Line lips- Lining my lips is very important for me. By doing this, I am giving my lips a more defined shape and outline at the same time prevents lipstick from smearing around lips. Make this a habit and always include in your makeup routine. Use lip liner that matches your lipstick shade ,if not the closest.

Lip liner suggestions: Get any lip liner from drugstore to high-end, it doesn’t really matter as they perform the same way. I have from NYX, Essence, NARS, Misslyn etc.

4. Apply lipstick / lip gloss- Last step is to apply your desired lipstick or lip gloss. Lip products come either with matte or glossy finish. It is totally on you which you prefer. Nowadays I am more into matte lipsticks as I find them more long-lasting and they hold on to your lips very well that they don’t smear all over. I like the look of matte more but occasionally I love wearing my glossy lipsticks too if I go for light eye makeup , I like keeping my lipstick dark and shiny then. The same way, Lip glosses nowadays have come in matte formula and is very much “in” and are commonly known as  Lip cremes. L.A Girl matte lip pigments are my favorites. Click the picture to know why. While lip cremes are ruling over the beauty world currently, one cannot resist the charm of lip gloss. The touch of that shine is what a girl needs most of the time. So always experiment and understand what you like. As I mentioned earlier, there is no rules to makeup.  You can even give your glossy lips a touch of matte by following this method.

L.A Girl matte lipgloss
L.A Girl matte lipgloss

Lipstick/lipgloss suggestions: NYX,  Maybelline have very good options of lip products both matte and glossy , however you can find equally good in other brands like L.A Girl, Sleek, Mikyaji, Givenchy, Anastasia Beverly Hills etc.

You just need to explore the market and do not hesitate to try to experiment on new products as you will find hidden gems there. ❤

Other lip products such as lip primer and lip concealer are very unnecessary in my point of view. Apply your lip liner all over lips , it will act as base for your lipstick and will cover your lips’ natural pigmentation acting as lip concealer.

Review- B Natural Organics Anti-Aging Collection

Howdy beauties!

Hope you all are taking care of your skin,very well very well . Makeup isn’t everything we need to look beautiful. What matters is the “thing” under your makeup and that is your skin, that needs a lot of care specially when you get older. As bad as “older” sounds, let’s face it as it is reality. Once we hit 25years of our ages, we need to pay more attention to our skin and start using anti-aging products. As we grow older, our skin becomes drier as it stops producing necessary properties that maintains youthful glow hence leaving our skin with wrinkles and unwanted spots.

In my case, I started anti-aging products a the age of 32 and I sometimes feel bad for having started it really late but “late is better than nothing” , right? Since then I have tried different products , there have been hits and misses but something makes me wonder, that is the products that work for me do not last longer. I feel like they do their job better for 1.5 to 2 months at most then later it just stops giving me results. That’s the reason my hunt for skincare products keep going and I have embraced the fact that my skin responds to certain product for maximum of two months and not more than that. So it is very much natural if you find yourself in the same position as mine and not freak out. Anyway ,this was just a random thought I wanted to share. Moving on to the purpose of this post, as promised, I will be coming with different skincare solutions for all your problems and today I have another one.

B Natural Organics is a Botanically Active Skin Care company that provide you with natural healthy skin care line that is free of artificial colors, synthetic fragrances and harmful preservatives.

Today I have for you , the Anti Aging Collection.

B Natural Organics Anti Aging Skincare Collection
B Natural Organics Anti Aging Skincare Collection

They were so kind and generous to send me one of their best line to try and share with you all and I received them in a very cute box, very well packed with two booklets containing information about their company and the details of the products sent. It makes me feel really good to receive PR samples in a very good condition, properly packed with all information. First impression is the last impression ,as people say and it is true. So this brand won my heart the moment I saw what I received.

DSC_6644

What the kit contains:

1. Bio-Active Cleansing Treatment

2. Daily Botanical Enzyme peel

3. Niacin Complex Balancing Mist

4. Sea Kelp Moisturizer

The above are the four products you need mainly but with those you get 3 other products listed below.

5. Aloe Leaf Body Lotion

6. Mother of Pearl Facial Scrub

7. Pomegranate Facial Scrub

So they provide you with a complete range of anti-aging products you need in one kit. The best part is, if you do not want to spend a lot yet on something you haven’t tried before, they have a “Trial Kit” for you which are sample sizes as you see in picture. The quantity is good enough and will last for 3 to 4 weeks depending on usage. The trial kit is for $25. You get 7 Organic anti-aging products good for 1 month which in my opinion is a great deal.  The full-sized kit costs $85 which I feel will be too much for those who haven’t tried their products yet considering the fact that it will be their first time using it. So I suggest get yourself the trial pack first , try it and I’m sure you will opt for the full-sized one. Please note the full-sized kit contains 1 to 4 products plus one eye cream. Please check here for details.

DSC_6646

  1. Bio-Active Cleansing Treatment:
Ingredients:Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) Leaf (and) punica granatum (pomegranate) (and) vaccinium angustifolium (blueberry) juice, decyl glucoside (and) sodium lauroyl lactylate, vegetable glycerin (and) camellia sinensis (green tea) leaf extract, panthenol (pro-vitamin B5), populous tremoloides (aspen bark) extract, vacciniummyrtillus (billberry) fruit/leaf extract, xanthomonus campestris (xanthan) gum powder, saccharum officinarum (sugar cane) extract, cedrus atlantica (atlas cedar) wood, abies balsamea (balsam fir) needle, juniperus communis (juniper) berry, litsea cubeba (may chang) fruit, lavendula angustifolia (lavender), eriocephalus punctulatus (chamomile cape) flower, anthemis nobilis (Roman chamomile) flower, cananga odorata (ylang ylang) flower, cymbopogon martinii (palmarosa) grass, pelargonium graveolens (geranium) leaf, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) fruit extract, citrus medica limonum (lemon) fruit extract, acer saccharum (sugar maple) extract.
What they say:This anti-aging cleansing treatment utilizes aspen bark enzymes to microscopically exfoliate the skin. This process stimulates collagen and elastin proliferation to plump and tighten skin. Pomegranate and blueberry juice provide intensive anti-oxidants while vitamins and extracts nourish and protect the skin with every cleansing. Made in a pure aloe vera juice base to add a rich supply of amino acids to help combat the signs of aging. Your skin will be left clean, stimulated and radiant. The anti-aging and nutritional benefits of this cleanser are accumulative.

What I say: It is one of the best cleansers I have used. There are very products that gives you instant results and this is one of them. It has transparent thin liquid inside which forms lather when rubbed onto hands ,making application very easy. Skin feel very smooth, fresh and cold after rinsing. The softness of our not-so-old yet not-so-young skin is restored which is the best part. However, you will feel your skin tightened and stretched which is okay as the product is doing its work.

How to apply: Massage the product onto skin in circular motion for at least a minute(face & neck) ,rinse with tap water.

DSC_6647

2. Daily Botanical Enzyme Peel:

Ingredients:Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) juice, lactic acid (plant-based), populous tremoloides (aspen bark) extract, cucumis sativus (cucumber) extract, panthenol (pro-vitamin B5), bambusa arundinacea (bamboo) extract, zingiber officinale (ginger) extract, calendula officinalis (calendula) extract.
What they say:Botanical Enzymes have been called the most important skin care agents of the decade. The active enzyme used in our Daily Botanical Enzyme Peel loosens dead cells from the skin’s surface by dissolving stubborn glue-like substances that refuse to release dead skin cells through normal cleansing. These cells create a barrier for proper absorption of moisturizers and serums, so getting rid of these dead cells means that fresher cells are exposed resulting in optimal absorption of products.

What I say: This enzyme peel increases the production of collagen that diminishes the appearance of fine lines and removes all stubborn impurities.As such I do not see any difference physically but definitely feel a little burning sensation.

How to apply: Apply all over face using cotton pads , just the way you apply face toner. It feels a bit tingly at first. This has to be applied once a week until the tingling sensation becomes bearable, then you can increase the use gradually. At first, your face will become reddish ,do not freak out as this means the product is doing its work.

 

DSC_66483. Niacin Complex Balancing Mist:

Ingredients:Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, cucumis sativus (cucumber) extract, populous tremoloides (aspen bark) extract, sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid), alpha lipoic acid, phospholipids (and) ubiquinone (CoQ10), dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE bitartrate), niacin (B3), salvia officinalis (sage) extract, carica papaya (papaya) extract, citrus aurantium dulcis (sweet orange) peel, citrus aurantium amara (neroli) flower, eriocephalus punctulatus (cape chamomile) flower, anthemis nobilis (Roman chamomile) flower, salvia sclarea (clary sage) leaf, cananga odorata (ylang ylang) flower, lavendula angustifolia (lavender) leaf.
What they say: This balancing mist is a powerhouse of nutrients, alpha lipoic acid, and DMAE to tighten, nourish, and protect the skin. Our liposome delivery system imparts vital nutrients as it adjusts skin to optimal pH levels for complete nutritional absorption. Made in pure aloe vera juice, adding a rich supply of amino acids to help combat the signs of aging. This mist is a nutritional treatment in itself..

What I say: This comes in a spray bottle which has to be applied right after the Enzyme peel. On days you do not use the enzyme peel, still this has to be applied as it is one of the key steps of this whole routine. After this is sprayed, the burning sensation due to enzyme peel will increase a bit and there will be more redness but this redness won’t be there longer. Hardly lasts for 5mins then skin color is back to normal. This feels so refreshing that I use this on and off during the day to hydrate my skin. Not sure if it’s fine to use it in such a way, but I did as it feels really nourishing.

DSC_6650

4. Sea Kelp Moisturizer:

Ingredients:Aloe barbadensis (aloe) leaf juice, vegetable glycerin (and) macrocystis pyrifera (sea kelp) extract, vitis vinifera (grapeseed) oil, cetearyl alcohol, sodium stearoyl lactylate, populous tremoloides (aspen bark) extract, panthenol, myristyl myristate, rubus idaeus (red raspberry) seed oil, vaccinium myrtillus (bilberry) fruit extract, sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid), hydrolyzed avena sativa (oat) flour, allantoin, saccharum officinarum (sugar cane) extract, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) fruit extract, citrus medica limonum (lemon) fruit extract, citrus aurantium amara (petitgrain) leaf, lavendula angustifolia (lavender), anthemis nobilis (Roman chamomile), citrus paradissi (grapefruit) peel, eriocephalus punctulatus (cape chamomile), cedrus atlantica (atlas cedar) wood, pelargonium graveolens (geranium) leaf, ormensis multicaulis (wild chamomile), citrus aurantium amara (neroli) flower, citrus sinensis (orange blood) peel distillation, cananga odorata (ylang ylang), acer saccharum (sugar maple) extract.
What they say:  We have incorporated intensive amounts of antioxidants, proteins, vitamins, allantoin, and red raspberry seed (offering one of the highest anti-oxidant profiles for natural sun protection). While our fruit extracts offer natural glycolic and lactic acid and our sea kelp offers protection from environmental toxins. Our preservation system is aspen bark extract, which is loaded with salycilates for intensive anti aging results. From the depth of your pores to your skin’s surface, our anti-aging cream will repair, nourish and protect your skin, while restoring the natural glow of young, healthy skin. Specially formulated without the use of waxes to provide deep absorption for optimal results.

What I say: The moisturizer feels a bit greasy and uncomfortably suffocating on the skin when applied. But then eventually I learned and found a way how to adjust it with time. When applying , massage it gently till it is absorbed by skin and see the magic. Skin feels very soft, non-greasy and very nourished. Now it has become my favorite moisturizer.

Review- Epoch Glacial Marine Mud

My love for face masks is never-ending. I end up buying face masks every time I go for skincare products shopping. Even though I already have plenty , still I can’t get enough of it. So when Vivian of Nu Skin offered to send me some samples of their products to try out, I just couldn’t resist as 2 out of 3 items were something I fancied a lot. Who doesn’t want to try new products by the way. So I happily accepted and I am now here with the results. ❤

So today I have for you all, Epoch Glacial Marine Mud . It is a mask not only suitable for your face but body as well. Isn’t that amazing. Laughing out loud

Epoch Glacial Marine Mud
Epoch Glacial Marine Mud

Details from the website:

A simple and natural way to softer, smoother toned skin. Revitalising clay mask with sea botanicals draws out dirt and impurities from the skin. Contains extremely fine mud particles and leaves skin feeling fresh, renewed and healthy-looking. Suitable for all skin types.

KEY INGREDIENTS

Glacial Marine Mud (Maris limus)—obtained from a remote glacial estuary in the Pacific Northwest, absorbs impurities from skin (dirt, dead cells, excess oil) without robbing precious moisture. This skin-beneficial mud is homogenized to increase its absorption powers and provide ideal consistency

My thoughts:

Best thing about facial masks are, you get the result instantly. You apply it and when process is done, you can tell immediately if the product is working for you or not. But I always believe in maintaining everything you do. Maintain and be consistent with what you have started for longer and effective results. In my case, I use masks to treat my pores, deep cleanse and remove excess oil, which is most of the masks do. Though I can immediately tell whether a product is working for me or not on the first application itself, I always continue and have a proper schedule for this routine, to maintain what I started or I will have clogged pores again causing it to look huge! Annoyed 

Very few masks show you a very satisfying result on the very first use. Epoch Glacial Marine Mud mask is one of them.

Epoch Glacial Marine Mud Mask results
Epoch Glacial Marine Mud Mask results

This picture was taken the very first time I used it. You can see the magic yourself. It did suck the dirt out of the core of my pores seriously! The makeup freak I am, most of the days my face has to bear the burden of all the makeup products I wear, one can imagine how much of cleaning I need to do. Specially when you have pores ,you need to give it attention and not ignore it. This mask minimized the visibility of my pores. My pores do look smaller than usual and now I am on my 3rd time use. Do not expect pores to disappear as no product would do that not unless you go for any kind of surgery. But this kind of results is not less than any magic to me as I have tried many masks and very few gave such results.

How to apply:

1. Wash your face with your favorite face wash.

2. Apply mask with fingers or flat foundation brush ,all over face except for eyes and lips.

3. Do not bring it any closer to your eyes specially the under eye area.

4. Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes.

5. Wash it off and dry using a soft towel.

6. Apply moisturiser.

PicsArt_09-20-08.32.02

PicsArt_09-20-08.32.45

Pros: Rolling on the floor laughing

1. Easy to use

2. Gives instant result

3. Mask not only for face but body as well Open-mouthed smile

4. Can treat wounds

5. Lots of benefits such as reviving youthful skin, deep cleanses, removes black and white heads(if you have any other color of heads, I’m sure this product will work wonders on that too Smile with tongue out).

6. The minerals in it helps a lot with giving you a healthy skin.

7. The mud has property to attract water hence leaving it hydrated.

8. suitable for Men and women.

Cons: Sad smile

1. The Price. If I convert the price to AED, I find the price to be very high as compare to high-end brands here that offers masks ( not sure if they give the same best result as this mask does)

2. Not available in UAE but best part is, they can ship anywhere in this world.

In my case , I will definitely spend that much on this product because of obvious reasons and it is not a one time use only. The product is to be used once a week only(advisable) and considering this, in my case it will last for 3 months. So spending a bit more on a mask that works wonders for 3 months is a good enough reason.

I have oily/combination skin, if you want to check out my daily skincare routine ,click here.
