Ever since my modeling days, Ive used Kryolan so I’m someone who has always been fond of Kryolan. They are known for their TV / Theater Makeup.

But not many people use kryolan for their lipsticks, it might be changing though.  To know more about Kryolan click here 

Being a makeup artist Ive had my share of lipsticks and I must say Kryolan lipsticks have been my favorite. One of the specialties of Kryolan is that they make a zillion shades which makes it easy and difficult at the same time to chose the perfect shade. But in my opinion that’s the beauty of it 🙂 I know this how??? Long ago, not so long ago I had the privilege of meeting and interviewing Dominik Langer (the grandson of the founder of Kryolan and current Director of Kryolan) and he told me that Kryolan makes sooooo many different shades of foundations/lipsticks  to cater to practically everyone .

So talking about the lipsticks- These lipsticks are super creamy, semi matte finish and long lasting … What else would one want from them ?

 

Shade is : Lip Rouge LC120 GO11624 . I honestly have nothing more to say about these lipsticks.

Price : Not too sure, bought them over a year ago. Approx 1000Rs.

Kaya Aqua Radiance facial review

 

 

Kaya Radiance aqua facial. hydration facial
Kaya Radiance aqua facial. hydration facial- 5 hours after the facial. My acne scars looks soooo much lighter and my skin looks way smoother than it normally does.

I was recently invited by Kaya Skin clinic to review their Aqua Radiance facial. I’m someone who loves getting facials, who doesnt ? So when Kaya asked me, I just could not say no. I’m soooo happy that I dint.

Upon reaching Kaya, I was offered a welcome drink by their staff members.

The Aqua Radiance Facial is for someone who is  looking for a  boost of freshness. The treatment started off with a massage which was very soothing and relaxing . Then my face was cleansed with cold air, it was almost shocking your face with cold air but not to an extend where you feel numb. The temperature was just perfect. After the extraction of  bacteria, vitamins were sprayed onto my face . Once that was completed , they did a mini clean up where they removed all my black and white heads. My skin felt super soft and i felt refreshed. The facial ended with a peel off face mask.

Upon completion of the facial, my skin felt and looked like a baby’s skin. It looked fuller, cleaner and fresher.

This facial is a perfect way to cleanse and hydrate your face from Dubai’s hectic lifestyle.

The therapist who did my treatment was Maureen.

Ferrarucci Matte Lipsticks

I went to dragon mart today and I saw this small kiosk in the middle of no where. They were selling this brand of makeup called Ferrarucci. Ive seen them a couple of times before, but i  never thought much of them . I decided to take a leap of faith in their product, and I ended up buying a few of their matte lipsticks.

These matte lipsticks are the bomb. I bought these lipstisks for AED 25. With everyone going crazy with matte lips lately, these lipsticks are sleek and affordable. I have no idea how many shades they have, but they sure do have a lot.

The color I’m wearing here is FLC46. Lipliner is MAC Cosmetics Lipliner in Pink Treat.

The only draw back with this is that after I eat,I see a huge portion of  the lipstick missing right from the center of my lips. It looks a little weird and I have to immediately re apply the lipstick. What can you expect from a lipstick that costs AEd 25?

Have you guys tried this brand ? Let me know by commenting below 🙂

Kat von d Lock it tattoo and L’Oreal true match

 

Its been sooo long since I posted anything on my website . Well for starters I’m a full time mom and in all honesty I haven’t found any time .

I may not have much time to record videos, but I certainly do have time to try out products. I have always had a tough time finding the right foundation for me ( in terms of color matching ). But NOT ANYMORE. I have found the perfect mix of foundations that work great for me .

A little back ground about my color, I’m a mix of MAC NC30 and NC 35 in studio fix fluid which makes finding the right shade a little hard for me .

I came across KAT VON D Lock it Tattoo foundation while I was pregnant and I ended up buying the shade medium 54 in the hope that it would match. But But But, It was at least 2 shades dark for me .

As usual I ended up forgetting about it .

Fast forward to date . I bought the Loreal True match in the shade w3, which was 2 shades lighter for me and I suddenly had a light bulb moment where I thought about mixing the two foundations. To my surprise it was a perfect blend .

You can see in the picture below what Im taking about

Fall is here, well almost. For me Fall/Autumn is all about dark lips. And by that I don’t mean red lips( Red also screams Fall for me ) , I mean Vampy lips. I’ve been drooling over this lipstick from Wet and Wild. Its amazingly smooth to apply. Looks vampish , which for me screams Fall/Autumn . In Dubai, we don’t really have fall. We like to think that we do.  So this post is in that essence 🙂
