Five Favorite Beauty Buys: May 2017
Lips: Tarte lip paint in Festival
I’m loving way too many things from Tarte at the moment. Not only are the highlighters incredible, the lip paints (their versions of liquid lipsticks) are great because they’re pigmented, super matte and hydrating at the same time. The festival shade is probably my number one favorite – which is a beautiful nude mauve mix.
Available at Sephora
Body: Kosme Paris Exfoliating and hydrating scrub with Mauritian sugar
I only recently got introduced to this brand – and I am obsessed with this scrub. Smells delicious, 100% natural and paraben-free – and made with Mauritian brown sugar and macadamia oil, it’s fragranced with honey, vanilla and chestnut. It really makes the skin feel very soft and hydrated – and is pretty much the main reason I get excited to shower at the moment. Ha!
Fragrance: Roberto Cavalli Paradiso Assoluto
Roberto Cavalli makes some of my favorite fragrances so I do get quite excited with every new launch! The new one, Paradiso assoluto – has top notes of white floral and vanilla, with a tinge of spicy.
Highlighter: Limecrime Hi-Lite in Opals
I must say I am so excited that Limecrime is finally available in Dubai – it was truly the first brand that made me fall in love with liquid lipsticks and had to stock up whenever I was in the States. Since then, the brand has expanded heavily with other beauty products. As a lover of highlighters, I tend to try nearly every one on the market. I like this one by LC for a more unicorn kind of effect.
Face: Kat Von D Lock it make up setting mist
Kat Von D makes some of the best beauty products. When I heard she launched her own setting spray, I knew I had to get my hands on it – for make up that lasts me the whole night. I’m not big on primers, but depend on setting sprays. Sans parabens and sulphates, one of the best thing about this spray is the micro-mist spray that helps reach the product across the whole face, without accidentally getting it too wet, and still keeping the refreshing side of the spray.
