The worst products I ever used

IMG_0141 copy

Through my journey in makeup and till now I love trying new products and experimenting new stuff. I have been across to some really awesome products and some really crappy products. The products that I will talk about today are not the only useful products I have used, I have used more than this but these are from the last couple of months.

-Maybelline Volum’ Express® The Colossal mascara.

As it said on the website only with one coat it gives you 9x volume. Let me tell you that it doesn’t, it is a normal mascara. I even tried the one that gives use more black color, both of them are just another normal mascaras that with their prices you can have really great drugstore mascaras. My lashed are tall and have volume so with two layers of these mascaras I will be good, but I have tried them on my sister they are really normal so it’s not fair to say they are good! But that doesn’t mean that I just threw them. I have used them as my daily mascaras, when I go to university or shopping.

-Maybelline Volum’ Express The Rocket

Here is another over rated mascara from Maybelline. This one is really a bad rocket. Not only it’s waterproof which I hate, it is very terrible, maybe because of its small heads. Even he mascara’s texture is really bad, it was kindna liquidy!! This one after trying it a couple of times, I just stopped using it.

One thing I have to mention, that Maybelline has a great mascara that I have tried and love. I will be talking about it later.

-Rimmel London Match Perfection concealer.

This is NOT a concealer at least I can say it doesn’t work as a concealer. This shade called “Classic Begie” #030. So , what I have done is that I used it as a highlighter which worked fine.

final5

-Mayabelline Fit me concealer.

This one could be some of your’s best drug store conealer but to me, it is not! The coverage is fine but the problem is that after a while it make creases and line under you’re my eye L so I defenanitly look better without this conealer. The shade’s # is 10.

final7

-Boobi Brown creamy concealer kit.

The same issue I had with Maybelline concealer, LINES LINSE LINSE.

final4

-Benefit hello flawless powder in shade honey.

This powder came out after the hello flawless foundation, which a lot of people made good reviews about. I didn’t try the liquid foundation but I have tried the powder. I feel it is a very very normal powder nothing special about it. It doesn’t have any coverage!!

final9

-Lancom Lip Gloss #13.

Now this lip gloss is a total fail! I might loved the color more if it was matte. This lip gloss doesn’t stay for long and I just don’t like it!! The only good thing about it, is the good sweet smell.

-Chanel Pro Lumiere foundation.

So this supposed to be a professional finish foundation, but it is not!! The finish is not a professional finish at all, it gives you a normal coverge. Besides that, this shade “#20 Clair-Cameo” is not the prefect shade for me. They need anther shade to be between this shade, one shade lighter and one shades draker like in between this.

 final8

-NYX Matte Bronzer Poudre Bronzante Mate.

This is the “Deep Tan” MBB05 shade. This also supposed to be a deep tan but it’s not. When a products is deep tan it would work as countour and the NYX worker told me that it would work as a countour!

final2

-Chanel LÈVRES SCINTILLANTES gloomier in #114.

This is one of the cases when you get deceived about the color of the product and then you realizer it acutally bearly have any color. So, No it not what it looks like!

 final1

-Bourjois rouge edition 12 hours.

The pink shade is #32 and the other one is #30. I love the shade of #30 but one thing about them that you have to apply lip balm whenever you want to reapply them, other wise your lip will look dehydrated!

 

Note: I didn’t mentioned from where I got them or how much because I don’t advice you to get these products!

 

Enjoy your day ladies 🙂 

 

 

Chanel’s Joues Contraste Powder blushers

Hi all !

I have noticed that last week I mainly talked about liner pencils, so today I decided to talk about blushers.

These are Joues Contraste Chanel powder blushes my all time favorites. I have tried all these four shades and all of them are great and pigmented. The cool thing about it that you can build on it, whether from a morning fresh look or evening parting look.

They come with a small blusher brush, which I don’t use I use this Dior brush which I have no clue how much it is or what’s called but you know it’s a blush blusher.

-How I apply

Starting on my cheek near to my ears and on my cheekbones.

Cost: Around 45 USD, Around 180 AED

This one is my fav shade # 60 Rose Temptation

3b

# 65 Espiegle 

4b

# 82 Reflex 

44b

# 64 Pink Explosion 

You can find Chanel blushers and the Dior brush in Bloomingdales and Sepohra in the Dubai Mall.

NYX Jumbo eye pencil

Hello again.

I feel like I’m hyper this week so here is another post. I choose these jumbo eye pencils, which I have since I don’t know when, because I was surprised that some of my friends don’t know about them!

-Names and numbers of the shades:

1.Pots and Pans 603

2.Horse Raddish 607

3.Cottage Chesse 608

4.Strawberry Milk 605

4.Pacific 616

5.Electric Blue 622

 

NYX made about 32 shades of this product.

According to NYX’s website these jumbo eye pencils “adiant eye liner that also doubles as an eye shadow. Made with a blend of mineral oil and powder, our creamy Jumbo Eye Pencils glide on effortlessly—no pulling, tugging or fading—and come in a rainbow of vivid hues. Our most voluptuous pencil yet! ”

Well it true! They are creamy and smooth, easy to apply. They can be used as eye liners and eye shadows.

-How I use them?

I use them as eye shadow primers and they work so well for me. What I do that I fill my led with them, sometime with the same shade of eye shadow I am using and most of the time I use the “cottage Chesse” shade.

-Do you need all of these shades?

No!! You don’t need to have all of them. Well, I had of that exciting moment where I bought these shades and to be honest “Cottage Chesse” and “Pots and Pan” are the ones that I use most. I do encourage you to have one or two unless you want to :P.

 

Cost:

Around 5 USD, Around 20 AED.

Yes it’s Heroine

I never was a fan of MAC lipsticks. I feel like their lipsticks aren’t crème enough and I feel like their will dry my lips-sorry to all MAC fans-.

But Heroine have this really beautiful purple shade that you can’t say no to it.

Trying new thing won’t hurt me. I tried it on, it’s a nice shade and it’s crème but I’m still not a MAC fan. You can find it at MAC store. 

So I had henna for my cousin’s wedding so this was the best place to have the swatch.  

Cost:

Around 16 USD, Around 108 AED. 

Gosh “All in One” BB Cream review

Hi pumpkins.

I came back with a review of a BB cream. So almost everyone in the beauty world knows what a BB cream is. But just in case, BB stands for Beauty Balm and it is a product that contains moisturizer, foundation, sun cream and primer. There is another term/product in the beauty world, which is the CC Cream, this one stand for Color Correcter. I have read some review about Sephora’s CC Cream and how good it is, but every time I go there they run out of it .

To be honest I have tried 2 BB creams so far. The one from Gosh and another one from Bourjois.

This is how they look, the packing is good not bad. Tube makes the process easy. And it comes in five shades. I have tried two shade the lighter one is called “02 Beige” this one look natural on me it is so near to my skin tone. And the other one is called “03 Warm Beige” when I wear this one I looked darker with only like one shade or half, I hope you got the idea :P.

Coverage:

02 shade coverage is light, it looks natural on me and it evens your skin color

03 shade two times better coverage than the 02 shade, obviously because it is a darker shade than my skin tone so it gives you better coverage. It didn’t dried my skin.

Cost:

Around 80 AED

Around 21 USD

I have also tried Gosh’s lipstick which I will be reviewing soon.

First post: YSL’s Rouge Volupté review

Hello everyone It’s no secret that my blog will be mainly about makeup which I am in love with. This is my first post and my first attempt in the blogging world. I have no idea what I’m supposed to write in the first post and I’m excited about the blog so I will be reviewing my YSL lipsticks.

3

These are from the YSL’s Rouge Volupté collection. As it mentioned in there website that they are award winning lipsticks and from their best selling. You can find them in Sephora, Bloomingdales, Paris Gallery. Swatches: 1 2

Something that I don’t like about YSL makeup products in general is the packaging. The golden lipstick looks pretty but with time and with its golden tone, it gets scratches after a while of putting it in your bag, makeup bag or in lipsticks bag. So we probably have to give it special care which I did not.

Believe me when I tell you that they are really really crème. I love lipsticks that are crème and when you apply it your lips doesn’t dry and you feel that they have moisturizer in them. These lipsticks are way too much crème and they don’t last for a long time. But we can’t miss the fact that they have really awesome shades.

When I wear them I fill my lips with lip liner before or sometimes just the lipstick itself if I don’t want something that last for long. One more thing don’t apply a lot of layer it won’t look good. To be honest I don’t use them a lot and you are probably wondering why I have six of them. Well I was really excited about the colors so I bought six.

Cost (of one): Around 36 USD, Around 132 AED.
