I’ve been using and experimenting with Kiko Makeup for a few months now and I definitely found myself surprised when finding some good quality products with that low a price tag ( think of it as the Italian Nyx or Milani or elf makeup ) .
First up , the eyeshadows. Continue reading “Beauty | Review || Kiko eyeshadows and an eye pencil “
If you’re living somewhere autumnal, then you may have felt a loss in energy and just general lack of vitality. This juice is like 3 redbulls without all the bad sugars, caffeine and side effects. Continue reading “Nutrition | a beetroot, carrot & ginger energy booster”
Earlier this month I had made the decision to start using more anti-aging skincare products. Having turned 25 this month, I figured now is as good a time as any to start curating my skincare regime more towards anti-aging products as well as whatever else I need. Although I don’t typically exclusively stick to one brand when putting together my skincare regime, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try it out.

Whether it is because of the changing seasons or simply because it’s not too hot outside to notice , I don’t know. All I know is that this priming serum has made my Combination Skin – a combination of slightly oily,slightly dry but mostly normal skin – behave whether I’m wearing a fluid foundation or BB cream or TM or whatever I decide to layer on top as a base.

Is this BB cream the best thing since – say – Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturiser ? No. It’s not. However, it is a good BB cream with SPF 50 which is perfect for Dubai’s hot and sunny summers. The fact that it gives skin a nice glow whilst slightly moisturising it doesn’t hurt either. Who doesn’t like dewy skin? Continue reading “Beauty | Review | | Estee Lauder’s latest BB Cream”
This eye shadow is by far my favourite eye shadow to date. From the texture to the pigmentation to the colours to the waterproof formula. For me, this gem scores an A+ on all the criteria. The colour I use is #15 – Copper Black . You can see it swatched below. Continue reading “Beauty | Review | | Giorgio Armani’s Eyes to Kill Silk Eye Shadow”
