Are you thinking about getting the Charlotte Tilbury advent calendar? Well I’m very new to trying out the charlotte tilbury products, and i wanted a sample of her brand in the most convenient way possible. I got this Naught and Nice Magic Box for 150 pounds (which is about 750 DHS) from http://www.feelunique.com.
The full size items in this box are:
Matte Revolution Lipstick in Walk of Shame
Eyes to mesmerize in Jean (cream shadow pot)
Lip lustre lip gloss in unleash me
Color chameleon in Mesmerizing mink (cream shadow stick)
The mini items:
Full Fat Lashes mascara
rock n kohl eyeliner in Amber Moon
Goddess skin clay mask
eye makeup remover
Multi-miracle glow cleanser, balm, and mask
For me, I wanted to try out her skincare just as much as i wanted to try out her makeup so it made sense to me considering two of her skincare products together would be the same price as the box. I wanted to try the magic cream, the goddess skin clay mask, wonder glow, her lipstick, the cream shadow pot, the color chameleon, the mascara, and the eyeliner.
I don’t have a complete review of all the products quite yet, but I thought i’d mention that I really do like the magic cream and it seems to last a good amount of time considering its a mini product. I also know that i will absolutely repurchase the walk of shame lipstick because the color is a perfect rose bud color for anyone and the texture is so comfortable for a matte. The eyeliner is very gel like and creamy so its also a favorite. I love using the eyes to mesmerize in Jean in my inner corners because it sets into place really well and has amazing pigmentation. I’m yet to try the other products, but i have no doubts that they will meet my expectations. If not, ill be sure to mention it.
Have you guys tried Charlotte Tilbury products? I’d really love to know your thoughts!
I’m not passionate about hair care in the way that i am about makeup and art, but I had to try out this wave spray purely because it’s created by one of the best hairstylist in the business: Jen Atkin. Whoever gets their hair done by Jen or tries out her products instantly falls in love with their hair and the magical abilities her products have. Personally, I don’t like the feeling of hair spray or stiffness to my hair because it feels unnatural to me. The wave spray has a lot of ingredients that do the job well, especially the rice protein which helps lock the waves into place. Another one of the reasons why I really wanted to give this spray a go was because it has no parabens and isn’t tested on animals.
I finally got my hands on two of the lip kits by Kylie Jenner. The ones I opted for are Candy K and Posie K, which are extremely beautiful and wearable colors. First of, it was not easy for me to find these lip kits here in Dubai. I did find them, however, through an account on instagram. When I first got them, I tried the lip liner in the Kit. I was so pleasantly surprised by this lip liner. It is long wearing and easy to apply. Its not your basic lip liner which would dry out the lips. Its very soft and smooth to apply, very similar to a lip primer pencil. The nib is also not very sharp, but rather it is rounded. After applying the lip liner, as Kylie suggests, I tried Candy K. The product itself smells absolutely lovely.. almost addicting to smell. It smells sweet, but not too overpowering. I would describe it as a strawberry milkshake scent. I would advise, however, to apply just one very thin layer on to the lips because thats how they appear most beautiful. I applied it, at first, very heavily and found myself disliking the product. It was flaky and drying and a lot of my other liquid lipsticks were more than half the price, and had better formulas. However, I continued to try them and ended up really liking them. I use only one layer and start from the inside centre of my lips and smydge or blur them outwards with the same wand without adding more product while it dries. The liquid lipstick does dry pretty fast, so I do have to work fast. The best part is that these lip colors last a VERY long time, especially Posie K. I look forward to trying more colors. I’ve got my eye on Kourt K.
The Lancôme Juicy Shakers just released here in Dubai as a pre launch, so i grabbed the one I liked most. I got Berry in Love, which is a beautiful mauve, pink and berry tone which stains the lips beautifully. It’s very pigmented, but not so much that your own lips don’t come through, which is why I love it. The instructions are to shake it well before applying so the oils and the lip gloss inside mix well. Once it’s applied, with the softest most addictive applicator, it completely transforms your lips into new and juicy soft ones. The nourishment is so lovely, however it doesn’t last a very long time. I think its meant to be that way, because applying it throughout the day feels amazing. I can’t wait to spend my summer applying this lip product!
