BEAUTY BUZZ: April 2012

April 28

Body: Elemis  Sp@home Tranquil Touch Body Cream: AED 134
I love using this after the shower – This body cream is great and super rich – love the sweet almond scent too, yum!

Nails: Orly It’s up to Blue
I’m loving blue nail shades this month and this is a super fun blue color worth checking out!

Foundation: Smashbox studio skin foundation
Smashbox cosmetics have never let me down… I started using this smashbox foundation this month – great HD coverage, long lasting and you feel the quality of the product – recommended!

Cream: Amouage Memoir (handcream, body cream and perfume)
I always have my handcream next to my laptop and in my bag to keep hydrated. This month, I’ve been using the Amouage memoir collection, which is great – strong enough to smell great but not in a bad way 🙂 makes me miss home…

Brush: Sigma
I’ve been recently introduced to Sigma make up brushes – great quality, great variety and give you great finishes for contouring and bronzing!

Hair: Percy & Reed London Volumising Mousse
A hair brand (who also have their own salon) on my radar this month, and are available on – smells amazing, great volume, not sticky and doesn’t stiff up your hair!

Mascara: Eyeko curvy brush mascara
Recently learnt about this brand – their mascaras have great wands that work for different uses! have you used any of their other products?

Sponge: Beauty Blender
there has been a ton of hype on this but I have been addicted to it recently – I love using one for foundation and one for sunscreen – it blends the liquid/cream right into the skin!

Fragrance: Flora by Gucci
perfect day scent, floral with a twist – love it

Supplement: ONÇA
beauty and health supplement with nutrients from the amazon for skin – ONÇA is a highly exclusive supplement and is limited to only 3,000 people worldwide to ensure a production ethic that retains the highest standard of nutrients from the Amazon. Taken twice a day – morning and evening. Great for skin, hair, nails and nerves as well as giving you great nutrients. started taking this after my detox, it really energizes the body.

Primer: Inika Pure Primer
Love primers, and have been trying to several to find some great ones. This one is great – organic, smells amazing, moisturizes, as well as keeping the make up stay put.

Hands: Rodial Glam balm HAND
This hand balm is genius! Brightener, intensive hand cream, smells of cocoa vanilla (yum!), AND the perfect size for the handbag!

Nailpolish remover: Bourjois dissolvant
To someone that changes their nailcolor everyday (or maybe not…) this is a dream come true! saves a ton of time and can even do it on the bus. removes all the nailpolish (perfect for dark ones that are hard to remove) forget the cotton, remover and mess!

Lipgloss: Stila lip glaze in starfruit
I have started using Stila cosmetics recently and obsessed! This lip glaze (lip gloss) is a great nude, perfect texture, as well as easy to apply and carry around!
