Kohl It Smokey! Ft. Sephora Glide Liners

It’s taken a couple of years and some horrid looking makeup looks to get to the (most of the times) kickass makeup perfection that I sport these days. I have shifted my blogging focus from Interiors to makeup after I stumbled across Carli Bybel on Youtube. I love her makeup tutorials and how she has evolved!

My main focus has always been contouring and eyes. Recently, I have developed a hunger for highlighters as well.

Now the best place for makeup for me has always been a Sephora store. Sephora for me is like candyland for kids. I can live in that place.

One thing about Sephora is that apart from the multi luxury brands that they stock in their stores, they have their own brand; Sephora. Sephora by itself keeps up with the latest trends and how!

This inhouse brand is super affordable and really worth every dime spent on it!! I love a lot of things from the inhouse Sephora brand, but, that’s for another post. Let’s talk about some awesome eye products that they have in store this month which, to be honest are absolutely a must buy!

This post is all about Kohl from Sephora.


These are super pigmented colored Kohl’s which have some seriously intense pigment. Basically Gel Eyeliners which are waterproof and in a retractable Kohl Pencil form. Being an Indian, Kohl is the first thing that I reach for when I do my eye makeup. We love our smokey eyes on a daily basis. LOL I know, but we love it.

They have six shades that are just at AED 55 each. Each Kohl will last you a good 8 months if you use it on alternate days.

Check these shades out, I’m eying the Noir & Warm Kaki for myself.

This one is Brown Chestnut 

Another color that I like is the Red Berry. If you can tailor your look around this Kohl, it’ll be a talked about look for a very long time.

For the waterline, there are 2 shades that are a must have in any vanity,  Beige & White


And now my favourites; Warm Kaki & Noir


The next post is yet again a Sephora Post about the cutest palettes ever!!


Until Laters…

In The Spotlight At Paris Gallery

If you are based in Dubai or UAE, you’re not new to this dreamy store called Paris Gallery. It’s a store that dreams are made of. It smells of aspirations and dreams and luxury. It reminds you of your idols on TV, in Ads, on Ramps. It’s got the right ingredients for you to be exactly what you aspired for. From the best of Fragrances to the most amazing Makeup to accessories and watches. If you spotted something in the glossy, you’re sure to find it in this store.

Paris Gallery has put together 10 fragrances each for Him & Her in the spotlight. Some of the best fragrances this season. what I’m sharing with you today are some of the best ‘Pink’ fragrances to raise awareness for Breast Cancer.

Valentino ‘Donna Acqua’ – Valentino Donna Acqua is an irreverent clash of lightness and indulgence. The crunchy freshness of green almond combined with the juicy notes of frosted pear is offset by the smooth and velvety heat of a frangipani rose accord with a hint of creamy sandalwood and hawthorn. Priced at AED 445, Donna Acqua looks pretty and dainty on your perfume tray.

Prada ‘Candy Gloss’ – Sparkling and intensely joyful: Candy Gloss is a sensual sorbet, sweet as acid cherry and solar as the orange blossom. A fruity bouquet with hints of rose and musk. apart from the perfectly feminine smell, the bottle is beautifully designed, but thats with all the perfumes from Prada. They have some of the best looking bottles in the perfume industry. This one is priced at AED 450.

Jean Paul Gaultier ‘Scandal’ – A very recent addition to the Jean Paul Gaultier line, this is amongst the most coveted bottles to own this season. During the day, it’s a delicious fresh honey with the wonderful scent of gardenia and blood orange. At night, it’s a sensual and scandalous honey combined with patchouli: an addiction that’s just so Jean Paul Gaultier.
Priced at AED 480.

Guerlain ‘Mon Guerlain’ – Mon Guerlain, the House’s new fragrance, is a tribute to today’s femininity – strong, free and sensual. It is a fresh and oriental fragrance that enhances exceptional raw materials. Priced at AED 580.

Gucci ‘Bloom’ – Gucci Bloom is created to unfold like its name, capturing the rich scent of a thriving garden filled with an abundance of flowers. Tuberose and jasmine combine with Rangoon Creeper – a unique flower discovered in South India. A must have if you like floral fragrances. Priced at AED 545

Each of these perfumes in pink are a work of art, in fragrance and in packaging. Which is your favourite?

Reviewed! Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment

You might not want to reveal your age to the rest of the world, but, your eyes and lips may just give it away! Just like the area around your eyes starts developing fine lines with age, the area around your lips does too.

Yeah, those pesky fine lines around your lips are a sign of aging. These are the lines from where your lipsticks start bleeding. I hated to see that feather design around my lips, thats when i seriously started considering filler options for my lips. But I guess I’m not ready to get into injections just yet. Thankfully, it’s around that time that I was invited to the launch of the latest product from Dermalogica. The ‘Nightly Lip Treatment’.

This is a serum in a tube which comes with a metal applicator, just like a lip balm applicator. now just cause it looks like a lip balm, don’t get over enthusiastic and start applying it like one. you need to squeeze a tiny bit out of the tube and apply it around your lips and on your laughlines. Whatever is left over can then be applied on top of your lips.

What does this contain?

  • Indian Gentian
  • Sesame seed extract
  • Shea butter
  • Hyaluronic acid

These work brilliantly to firm, moisturize, hydrate and restore the protective barrier around your lip area.

I have been using this for over a month now and can actually see a difference in the way my lipstick behaves. My laugh lines are visibly reduced. All in all, I’m pretty happy with the product.

Have you guys tried this product? I would love to know your thoughts on this product!

A lot more interesting things coming up on the blog soon! Until then,

Summer Vibes For Your Wardrobe…

I’m not a huge adventurous soul when it comes to fashion. I stick to safe and familiar styles, even if it means that I’m living in the 1900’s!! It’s just been one year that I have started wearing sleeveless clothes. I’m yet to venture into the off shoulder trend. It’s just that a change in style makes me very conscious and unsure of myself. I hate not being confident, ever!!

One of the few places that I’m pretty confident of shopping at is RED TAG. They are super trendy and unbelievably affordable. They also have a lot in my size. My size? I’m a cusp between a regular person and a plus size person. Yeah, imagine that!! I feel unwelcome every where, I just don’t fit in any set pattern. The best part in this store is that the staff is very warm and welcoming. Happy to help you out once they know what your style is.

There have been times when I’ve picked up 3 or 4 pieces and gone to the changing room and the shopping assistant has, on her own picked out a few designs and brought them to my changing room for me to try. I was pleasantly surprised and pleased at the proactive effort from the store staff.

So, when it comes to getting a affordable summer refresh for your wardrobe, Red Tag is the place to go! They have some fab mix and match options available for summer. Below are a few of my favourites.

I’m obsessed with the flower details on the pants!! This is a perfect outfit for travels!! The T shirt says it all.

This dress though…

I will surely add this to my wardrobe for a day at the beach! I loved the soft fabric of this dress.

Even though the sleeves are long, I’m in love with the print of this shirt. The fabric is light and perfect for summer.

This top is what caught my eye! Don’t you think it’s super pretty?

I’m adding these to my wardrobe this summer. Did you like this collection? I would love to hear your thoughts!

Blazing Hot Nails in Paris Fashion Week By Inglot!!!

The catwalk was for Kenzo SS 2018 collection but people were raving about the Blazing Hot Ombre nails on the models created by the talented manicurists of Inglot in collaboration with the Iconic nail artist Naomi Yasuda!

With the mesmerizing quality of a blazing evening bonfire, this look served as a powerful contrast to the bright spring and summer looks shown on the KENZO runway, and it will surely inspire fall nails this year.

“The inspiration was Japanese supermodel Sayoko Yamaguchi – She was a model actress in the 70’s and 80’s, and she was also Kenzo Takada’s muse,” said Naomi Yasuda, lead nail artist sponsored by INGLOT. “Her look was very unique, she was known for her beautiful black hair and red lips. So this season for the KENZO show, I created black and red ombré nails.

“It’s very simple and clean yet chic,” said Yasuda. It almost looks like a Japanese lacquer ware.” The manicures were complimented with glossy black pedicures.

The Look: Red and black ombré nails

The Products: Naomi began with a base coat of the INGLOT Ridge Filler. She then applied a layer of the blazing red using INGLOT Nail Enamel 805 and created the black ombré effect with a sponge using INGLOT Breathable Nail Enamel 692, and sealed with INGLOT Dry & Shine.


All INGLOT products used to create the looks seen at these shows are available at more than 600 retail locations worldwide.

I loved the look! And you?

Trend Alert – 2017 Summer Sunnies!!!

Sunnies are something which I can never have enough of! I don’t even bother justifying a pair of new sunnies!

If at all you need to justify your purchase of some cool AF sunnies, here are 5 damn good reasons that will convince even you!!

  • Reasons to Wear Sunglasses

    1.) UV Protection. The sun’s UV radiation can cause cataracts; benign growths on the eye’s surface; and photokeratitis, sometimes called snow blindness, which is a temporary but painful sunburn of the eye’s surface. Wide-brimmed hats and caps can block about 50 percent of UV radiation from the eyes but optometrists say that is not enough protection.

    2.) Blue-Light Protection. Long-term exposure to the blue and violet portion of the solar spectrum has been implicated as a risk factor for macular degeneration, especially for individuals that are “sun sensitive.”

    3.) Comfortable vision. The sun’s brightness and glare interferes with comfortable vision and the ability to see clearly by causing people to squint and the eyes to water.

    4.) Dark adaptation. Spending just two or three hours in bright sunlight can hamper the eyes’ ability to adapt quickly to nighttime or indoor light levels. This can make driving at night after spending a day in the sun more hazardous.

    5.) Skin Cancer. Cancer of the eyelids and skin around the eyes is more common than people think. People should wear sunglasses outdoors whether they are working, driving, participating in sports, taking a walk, running errands or doing anything in the sun.

These reasons are sourced from Fox News so they are completely legit!!

Now that we have ample and legit reason to believe that we need some top quality sunglasses, let’s shop around, shall we?


Let’s start with Vintage Inspirations! There’s a whole range of vintage Inspired Sunnies from Chloe.

Vintage inspiration and modern design come together in an alluring, sophisticated collection with luxurious details and a Seventies feel. The iconic models feature unique colors and reflections created by new gloss effects and highly distinctive material combinations, inspired by Chloé’s EFFORTLESS feminine elegance

The palette includes gradient Black, gradient Dove Gray, gradient Brown/Yellow and gradient Taupe. Priced at AED 1,890.




The new eyewear collection by Salvatore Ferragamo combines tradition with innovation, aesthetics with function, elegance with practicality. The result is eyewear loaded with unique style and personality.

Cat Eye anyone? I’m in love with this perfect Cat Eye shape in Salvatore Ferragamo priced at AED 1,690.

GUESS 2017

The round shape still remains one the coolest around. Reinvented by the global lifestyle brand Guess in latest eyewear collection, the intriguingly feminine, decidedly round silhouettes of this style are full of glamour. They suit anyone with angular features and square faces. Available in classic black and animal prints, with metal details on the bridge and temples embossed with the “GUESS” logo and joined to the front with the iconic triangle motif.

Go retro with these pairs, ideal for a day out on the beach. Price range begins from AED 420


Embrace the 70’s trend with Roberto Cavalli’s latest range of flamboyant oversized sunglasses – a timeless style that never really left the runway. This season, sunglasses are bolder than ever, with thick frames and exaggerated styles dressed up with glitter and embellishments.




Made for the bold and daring, choose from cat-eye, rectangular or butterfly shapes, and make it as extravagant as you can handle – because it’s all about standing out this season.

Price range begins from AED 1200

These are 5 of my top picks this season, my choice of Summer Sunnies!!

What do you think? Which ones did you like from these?
