HUGE THANKS to all the MUAers who reviewed this product and whose wisdom and advice I benefited from. You were not wrong! This is an amazing product!! I felt I had to return the favour and add my own experience for other newbies like me to the world of at-home highlighting!

A bit of background - living in Dubai for 24 years as a british expat I thought nothing of spending the …

I HATE sunscreen on my face!!!! It always ends up looking oily and forget putting makeup on top of it... what a mess at the end of the day. Don't get me started on the stinging eyes if I forget not to do them... arrrgh!

THIS IS THE EXCEPTION! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. It is a little runny so I put a little into my palm, rub my palms together then pat it on all over. Just a small …

I have fine straight blonde hair which goes 'fluffy' if I don't blowdry it, and even if I do when there is high humidity. It lacks volume unless I have a good blow out at the hairdressers and I hate using volume mousses or other styling products as they either leave my hair dry, sticky or dull and anyway I just don't have the time or inclination (I am lucky in that I can …Read more

I love this. It goes on white but quickly turns to a very natural shade for my light beige skintone. I don't feel like I am wearing any foundation at all and I only need apply a very small amount. It lasts throughout the day without going shiny (this through a very hot day in Rochester today).. I like the pump dispenser as it keeps the product fresh and allows me to pump the right …Read more

WOW! I had heard of mineral powders/make up but just thought that, regardless of the claims, they would dry out my skin and sink into my fine lines making me look both much older and fake (which any kind of loose powder has done before). Not the case!

Sephora Dubai has been selling the bare Minerals starter sets for ages now and whilst I was always tempted I resisted just thinking it …

Audge723 got it spot on ! This lipstick is VERY expensive .. I paid Dhs165 / GBP 30 .. but as she mentions, if you use it then it is well worth it... and I will use it!

I got this alongwith Chanel's lipliner (32 Pivoine) as I was looking for a replacement for my Tarte liner which you cannot find in Dubai. I took my old pencil with me and matched it almost perfectly to this …

I rarely wear foundation and had a bad experience with powder foundation many years ago (dried out my skin and made me look really pale) so have always steered clear of it. I did want a powder though as the weather is heating up here (in Dubai) and my skin is getting a bit oily so....

... off to Areej. I have been very happy with Givenchy purchases in the past so thought I would …

I got a few samples of this with another purchase (one of my favourite fragrances - Ruban D'Orange). As I was not looking for another moisturiser and don't really associate the brand with 'proper' skincare I was not overly excited to try it but so glad I did. There are very few moisturisers that can really 'feed' my dry hyper-sensitive skin - this one does and …Read more

Like everyone else I could not resist the GORGEOUS packaging this product comes in. I nearly bought more than 1 (there was a deal if you took 3) but the price is exorbitant for the product itself so resisted! I paid Dhs75 / USD 20+ / UKP 15 in Dubai at Debenhams... the deal was 3 for Dhs185 I think.. or somewhere thereabouts.

The cream itself is certainly not moisturising enough to …

I got this as a free gift with a ton of makeup I purchased from BB and wasn't initially very excited by it - was expecting a more exciting free gift.. 8-)) So very happy I got it now though - it is superb. I have to agree with a previous reviewer that this encourages me to take my make up off every night as it makes the process much much less of a chore. It literally sweeps it off in ONE …Read more
