Valentino Donna is mysterious, exquisite andtimeless, like a couture object.

The fragrance is described as a smooth chypre – floral 
Valentino Donna was created by Sonia Constant and Antoine Maisondieu.
Rose essence, generously blended with notes of bergamot and iris Pallida, illuminates the fragrance withrefined radiance and an impalpable texture.

Warm, intense notes of leatherblended with patchouli and vanillaexpress an exquisite, inescapable carnality.
NOTES :-

Top Notes :- Bergamot

Heart Notes :- Bulgarian Rose , Iris

Base Notes :- patchouli, Leather , Vanilla

My thoughts:-

Wow! I had it applied only a small amount to one wrist to test, and already this scent was wafting around me.

To me its very feminine, yet classy , sophisticated rich and resinous
oh sooo delicious and really sexy love the floral-leathery burst followed by a wonderful mix of vanilla,

Smells cozy somehow like a fluffy sweater in the winter.
I don’ find it too strong, it has good silage and dries down to a powdery vanilla and sexy leather.

The bottle took my heart away, studded heavy glass bottle is a charm for my makeup vanity – so Classy !!

A real classic. A masterpiece
Amazing staying power up to 6-7 hours!

Review : Laura Mercier Flawless Contouring Palette.

Laura Mercier Launches New Flawless Contouring Palette
The Art Made Simple.

Lead the trend with a newly launched, exclusive Contouring Palette that brings Laura’s artistry techniques to life with ease.
Through her artisan lens and years of working as a professional makeup artist, Laura has carefully chosen these neutral shades in a darker range that help sculpt the face.

This palette of blendable creams delivers foolproof application every time. Shade intensity is much lighter than it appears, so it’s perfect for all skintones. Through her artisan lens, developed over years of working as a professional makeup artist, Laura Mercier has carefully chosen these neutral shades in a darker range to help sculpt the face. The key to everyday contouring is to be discrete. This Contouring Palette is designed to define and highlight your best features with five delicate, but buildable creams. The extraordinary formula is more blendable than typical contouring powders, allowing for a natural, flawless, and seamless application every time. For a complete flawless look, finish with the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder.

This kit features five shades based on undertone and a step-by-step instruction card.

My thoughts

One of my favourite makeup products are Contouring and highlighting products!

It really helps to sculpt and enhance your features & make it selfie Ready 😉
This is the first cream contour product I’ve ever used and it was kinda fun.

I wasn’t sure if I would love it !! But trust me guys just first swatch of it made me change my mind .. It works AMAZINGLY great. You can actually see the contour without using too much of it.

It has that grey undertone that I need to contour, doesn’t skew muddy and red /orangey nor sparkly on my face.

Im not a big fan of cream highlighters because it really makes my makeup look blotchy 😐Which is not so attractive 😛

I try using this highlight #1 & #2 when i just need minimal makeup without using any setting powders.. And YASS 👍🏼 It stayed longer than I thought..

Most natural and long lasting and build able glowy effect !!!

How  To Use : I like to put it over liquid foundation using small stippling brush or angled brush and then I then set with a translucent powder, or contour powder for a more sculpted look, blends in beautifully and flawlessly,highly pigmented, It goes on sheer but you can build it up to whatever darkness you need AMAZINGLY

Overall, Laura Mercier Cream countour has the Superblendable formula, very buildable. These colors add instant light and glow and stay in place aaaall day looking super natural, without even using primer or setting spray.

Price: AED 232 

Available at all Areej stores across United Arab Emirates and Oman.

Fragrance of the Week : Armand Basi – IN RED

Armand Basi is a Spanish fashion and lifestyle brand.  &  IN RED’s color range is formed from the pairing of red and white. Red expresses sensuality, character, complexity and, of course, passion.

With the arrival of spring, the almond branch completes its cycle and blooms. The light changes and everything becomes intensely bright. Similarly, ARMAND BASI IN RED lights up with this new packaging that makes it even more seductive.

Notes :

Top notes : mandarin, bergamot, ginger and cinnamon.

Drugstore Product : Neutrogena – Cleanse And Protect

Summer care with Neutrogena – Cleanse And Protect ❤️

Summer is officially here! You can feel it on your skin, as soon as you step outside. And whilst you’re looking forward to fun and games on the beach, the heat and humidity cancause havoc: enlarged pores, oily skin, breakouts, brown spots, parched lips
If this sounds all too familiar, you’ll be glad to know that Neutrogena has a few hard working products to keep your skin clean, cool and protected.

Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Pore & Shine Daily Wash

The Problem:
Shiny, greasy, oily skin? The source of the problem is the sebaceous gland which produces sebum – a combination of fats and dead cells. The sebum reaches to the skin surface through pores, and when it is in excess, it causes trouble, blocking pores and setting off acne breakouts.
The Solution:
Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Pore & Shine Daily Wash and Daily Scrub, a double action product range that tackles pores and shine in one go. Its formulation contains micro-beads and salicylic acid which unclog and minimize pores’ size. It is clinically proven to immediately remove 77% of excess sebum, providing a lasting matte finish without over-drying the skin. What’s more, the uplifting tangerine and lime scent, which will make your new cleansing routine a joy this summer!
IMG_4320

My thoughts :-
These days my skin feels so dull & dry due to dehydration.
I have been using this cleanser daily for a week now and I really like the fresh citrus smell its so refreshing and gentle on my sensitive skin yet super cleansing, removes all trace of makeup. & doesn’t dry my skin out .. AHMAZING 💗
Price :- 44. 86 AED

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen

The Problem:
brown spots and pigmentation. The harmful ultra-violet radiation from sunlight is the main culprit in causing pigmentation, wrinkles and the overall accelerated aging of our skin.
The Solution:
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen, a powerful (30, 45 and 55) and completely photostable SPF. It contains zinc oxide with the broadest spectrum UVA and UVB reflector. It is also water-resistant, ultra-light, shine-free, PABA free and non-comedogenic too. Show you really care about your skin and apply SPF daily!

My thoughts :-
Well, I’m not a sunscreen fan, maybe b’coz i have a very dry and sensitive skin.. But I always heard a good reviews on neutrogena ulta sheer dry touch-screen.& I got a chance to try it

Texture wise its like a normal cream or lotion, which disappears immediately once applied . I FELT Little sting when i was spreading all over my face but after few minutes it was gone 😐
Im not sure if i like it or no !! But detailed review will be up soon
Price :67.82 AED

Neutrogena® Norwegian Formula® Lip Care

The Problem:
Dry, parched lips. We always seem to forget to protect the lips, and because they are the most delicate part of our face, we’re plagued by dry and chapped lips.
The Solution:
Neutrogena® Norwegian Formula® Lip Care, a moisture-enriched balm that nourishes and protects your lips, keeping them healthy-looking and soft. Keep it handy and apply frequently throughout the day.

My thoughts :-
This product is beyond amazing ❤️ its like a miracle for chapped dry lips, I personally love love love lip balms, but when i first received neutrogena lipcare i was damn excited so I gave it a try and HELLO!! I LOVE YOU BOY 💋
This stuff works like a charm, keeps my lips from drying out for hours & hours and I can wear it under my lipstick. I’m glad to have found a winner and one I can recommend to you all ❤️

Price : 17 AED
