Once I’ve found the right makeup products, I rarely replace them. Here are the reviews of some makeup products that I use, hope you find them helpful 🙂
Farsali: I bought this serum a few months back and I wouldn’t purchase it again. It moisturizes the skin and can be applied as a good base for your makeup but it’s not the best out there. I don’t really spot the difference in my makeup if I don’t have it on. It’s for AED 200 & can be bought on Farsali’s website.
NYX Total Drop Foundation in the shade of “beige”: I’ve recently started using this foundation but I can’t say it’s my favorite. However, this foundation is light on the skin, has a light coverage for girls who like to wear foundation everyday, and it’s buildable (you can add layers for more coverage). It dries quickly on the skin so make sure you blend it in directly. It’s quite affordable, AED 68, and can last up to two months. You can buy it at any Lifestyle store or any NYX stand.
FitMe Concelear by Maybelline, shade #25: Having the right concealer can be challenging. I’ve been using this concealer for two years now and it works perfectly for me. It has a medium coverage so you can wear it in the morning or at night. It’s for AED 44 & can be bought from any Maybelline stand.
Sun Shield by Obagi Medical: Sunscreen is as important as any product in your life. As some people may already know, I’m on Roaccutane treatment so my skin can get really sensitive when I’m exposed to the sun. However, most girls don’t value the importance of sunscreen as they should. Sunscreen DOES NOT block the sun but SCREENS out any unhealthy sun rays. My favorite thing about this product is that it has a finished matte look and doesn’t make my makeup look cakey. It’s a bit pricey (AED 230) but it’s definitely worth buying. It’s available on souq.com.
Cream Lip Stain By Sephora Shade #13 (Marvelous Mauve): Since I’m not a big fan of dark lipsticks, this pinkish/nude shade by Sephora is everything!! It can last up to 6 hours but can dry out your lip so make sure you wear lip balm before applying it. It’s for AED 75 and can be bought online or from any Sephora branch.
Rosegold Eyeshadow Palette by Huda Beauty: A LOT of good reviews have been already posted on this product and I can’t help but agree. This palette has a range of matte (transition colors) and shimmery shades. The matte shades can be applied daily without giving an overdramatic look. My favorite thing about this palette is how it’s so PIGMENTED & can be easily BLENDED! For maximum payoff, use your finger to apply the creamy metals. Do not apply with an eyeshadow brush. Find it in Sephora for AED 250.
Becca in the shade of C POP is the only highlighter I ever bought. Lasts for a whole year and is fairly pigmented. You can find it in Sephora for AED 174. You can spray the Prep+Prime Fix by MAC on the brush before applying it to make it last longer.
