New lipstick purchase: Guerlain Rouge Review

DSC_0946DSC_0944

That’s my first beauty post and I want to tell you that I was never interested to write reviews about my make up or skin & hair care treatments, but then I decided to only write reviews about the products that I really like and I thought it might help other people to decide to buy it or not in case they are already thinking about purchasing. Honestly how many times you bought a product and you got disappointed as it’s not good as it promised or you simply hated it. I was one of these people until I start reading reviews about any product I’m going to buy and I must say it helped me a lot but I want to highlight very important thing which is you should also put into consideration your skin color and type, cause this nude color lipstick which looks woooow on X might makes you washed out if you have a very pale skin, and this amazing luxurious face moisturizer might break you out cause it’s not for oily skin, go it, I think so smile

Now let me talk about my new lipstick color, Guerlain Rouge Automatique Hydrating Long-Lasting Lip color in Coral Sheen 141, I love the quality of Guerlain make up products  in general and this specific color which falls between pink and orange really attracted me. Also the moisturizing texture is a big bonus because there is nothing worse than a nice lipstick color with dry lips; and I hate adding lip balm to my lipsticks all the time. This amazing formula combines long lasting hold, lots of moisturizing, and the radiance of a crystal pigment. It glides over your lips and gives you this radiant finish which we all want and it stayed put almost all over my day. I’m so in love with its creamy texture and the smooth finish it gave to my lips it feels like a second skin. I couldn’t ask for more in a lipstick and definitely I’m going to buy more colors of this range of lipsticks, by the way this collection comes in 25 different colors and this color will suits you well if you have fair, medium, or olive skin.

Guerlain Rouge G L’Extrait Matte Color Exceptional Hold in Red M25, this color is completely the opposite of the previous color as its strong and bold look. I must confess I’m not a red lipstick girl I simply don’t fall in this Hollywood glamorous school of make up with perfect examples of Marilyn Monroe and Dita Von Teese but I always like to challenge myself and try to come up with different looks, so I decided to buy this red color lipstick but since I’m going to wear red then few rules has to be applied like the color intense and the texture, we all know that red lipsticks are high maintenance and you really need to be careful when you wear them as you don’t want your lips to look flakey or dry-out, so I checked this color and the first thing I noticed is its silky-velvety, creamy transforming texture. It’s a combination of a lipstick and a gloss. The liquid formula of this lipstick turns out to matte finish within a few moments of applying. Like magic biggrin, I was scared in the beginning of the liquid glossy look of the applicator as I do have full lips and I don’t like to emphasize them with a glossy red lipstick but after a few moments of applying the lipstick, it turned out to a matte finish look which I totally love. The lipstick packaging  I must say is the most luxurious fancy packaging I ever saw for a lipstick, it’s a bit tricky to open it (I had no clue how to open it the first time) but all the instructions are written on the lipstick body, so it’s really easy to use but not that practical if you are in a rush, the good thing about it which will make all your girlfriends curious is the mirror which is attached to the lipstick package, the moment you will pull the lipstick up to open, the mirror will pop up, it’s quite interesting to have it with you for easy touch up but I must say the packaging really weigh a lot, this lipstick has non-sticky, non-drying texture which will give you a decent amount of hold but as any other lipstick you’ll need to reapply it again if you ate or kissed someone wink  to keep the intense of the color, but for me I liked so much the faded sheer effect of this color, so I didn’t feel I need to reapply it again. This lipstick is a bit pricy for its luxurious packaging but I felt that it’s worth every penny, so I’m not regretting that I bought it.

N.B the picture is showing the color of this lipstick is more pinkish but it’s really red color sad

I wanted to include this India Hicks Island Living Spider Lily Eau de Toilette from Crabtree & Evelyn in my post as a perfect light fragrance for spring/summer. It combines citrus, floral and green undertones in it. Unfortunately it doesn’t last long but the smell is heaven, I like to apply it after taking a shower as it gives me this refreshing feeling, I already use other long lasting fragrances but I wanted to buy something light for the spring to use it when I go to a picnic or to the beach, if you like floral light fragrances then this spider Lilly Fragrance will tick all the boxes and you’ll keep it in your purse during all the summer.

I’m totally happy with my new lipsticks and you can expect me wearing them in my next outfit posts, so you can see the complete look. I hope my review will give you a better idea about these products regardless if you might buy it or not as that’s my ultimate goal of posting this review. Do you have a favorite lipstick color and what is your favorite lipstick brand?  Have a lovely day and waiting for your comments rolleyes

The Blue Mountains

DSC_0272

Today I’ll be sharing with you the photos I took from my last Trip to Australia; it’s in the Blue Mountains. The Blue Mountains is a mountainous region in New South Wales, Australia. It borders on Sydney’s metropolitan area, its foothills starting about 50 kilometers west of the state capital.

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I arrived to this breath-taking place, everything there seems so quiet and pure, you can only smell fresh air and look to an endless space of sky and mountains, I felt like I’m lifted above the ground and just entered a beautiful dream and surrounded by the clouds, that’s a brief description of how I really felt there. There were also some attractions to see like the National Park, Jenolan Caves, The Three Sisters, Scenic Railway, Katoomba and Wentworth Falls.

I really enjoyed my day in this amazing place and I couldn’t stop taking pictures razz , I hope you guys will like the photos and I would like to know what your favorite place to relax?

Natural Beauty

Beauty is the best God’s creation, it’s always nice to stop every while and just enjoy what god created for us from beautiful mountains, trees, flowers and water falls. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I arrived to this amazing place, surrounded by nature from every angle which can inspire any person. It gave me a motivation to continue my job. And whenever I see such beauty, I always ask myself how materialistic our life becoming and how busy it is, so we don’t appreciate small things like that. Nature is part of our world and unfortunately is getting destroyed by us for the benefit of technology and human consuming, so if you get a chance to spot any of God’s natural creation, please stop and disconnect yourself from the world for a minute and just enjoy the sound of the natural beauty.

Full description and more information about this location are coming up in my next travel post.

Back to my casual roots, I saw this T-shirt in a shop called America Today at Amsterdam Airport and the logo caught my attention, I didn’t started blogging at this time, but it was an inspiration. And then I checked the collection, I found many items I like there. I bought this Parka at the same day, definitely it will be a must stop for me every time I go to Amsterdam , I’m a big fan of long socks and leg warmers, it’s just very comfy and gave my outfit  a bit of edge. It’s perfect for rolling over in the grass as well razz

Zebra Stripes

I’ve been looking lately for one of the most spreading trend which is Zebra Stripes, celebrities have been rocking this trend and I can see a lot of fashion bloggers wearing it, from the top to the pants and even some clutches with Zebra stripes. And for a classic person like me, I was a bit hesitant to try this trend. But when I saw this top in Zara shop I was thinking it might look really nice, so I bought it and I liked it a lot that I’ve been wearing it to almost all the castings I go. I was struggling to take these pictures because we went to the mall on a Friday (this area is just the open area connected to the mall) and if you are living in Dubai, so you should know how much crowded can these malls get in weekends, there were lots of kids running around but I managed to crop them smile

Flowery Spring

DSC_0970

Every Easter I think how it’s fantastic opportunity to celebrate it by going to a beautiful garden and enjoy the day. But I never managed to do that as most of the time I was working on this day. Some people have to work on public holidays what to do confused .  But It’s not that big deal for me. So I decided to choose a normal day to go out and enjoy the sun. For my outfit today I wanted to show you how you can wear a flowery skirt in 2 different ways. The 1st look is to match the skirt to a plain silky black top, simple one. And the 2nd look, I matched the skirt to a black crop top, just to add fun to the look and make it more relaxed. The skirt is the master piece of this outfit, it has a little bit of volume and the high waist makes it perfect for any crop top. I love skirts and dresses with volume and you will see me wearing them a lot in my future outfits.
