Best Hair Products for VOLUME

Best Hair Products for VOLUME
Since my hair is now short I have to style it every time I wash it otherwise it just looks very messy. So since my hair has been short for a couple months I've narrowed it down to a routine that helps keep the volume all day. Granted most days when there is a lot of humidity my hair will loose volume. These products are definitely worth trying if your looking for a boost. 
Best Hair Products for VOLUME
The first step after I towel dry my hair is I apply the TRESemmé Thermal Creations Volumizing Mousse. I use a very small quantity and just apply towards the roots and the ends then I blow dry with a round brush focusing on the roots. The problem with short hair is that you can't reach all the areas of your scalp to dry so I just do it sporadically.

After I blow dry my hair I straighten my hair without using any product. When my hair has straighten then I go in  with the Catwalk by TIGI Root Boost Spray (AED35) on the roots of my hair. This product has to be blow dried so I go back in with my hair dryer. I interchange either this product or the Bedhead Sugar Dust Root Powder (AED43) which can be applied on the scalp and massaged in for volume.  The Catwalk by TIGI is by far my FAVOURITE for intense volume. A little goes a long way.  I only use this on special occasions because after I use it makes my scalp very tight and uncomfortable the following day. 

On day to day use I love the Schwarzkopf Got2b Fat Tastic Hairspray 
(850Rs) I usually backcomb my scalp and then spray where I teased to hold the volume. On days when my hair is greasy I love using the Batiste XXL Volume Dry Shampoo (550Rs). I flip my head upside down and spray towards the roots. I use this sparingly as well since the following day since it will make your hair feel very tight. 

Most of these products I ordered from Dubai. Bastiste and Got2B are easily available in shops now! I picked mine up from EBCO. These products are definitely some of my favorites along with a backcombing brush!

ColourPop Super Shock Shadows - Swatches!

After falling in love with ColourPop lip products, I recently got around to getting a few Super Shock Eyeshadows! These are some the best-sellers available on the website so I thought to give them a go and see what the fuss is about!
ColourPop Super Shock Shadows - Swatches Nillionaire Bae Juicy Apple
What ColourPop Say:
Our revolutionary creme-powder eyeshadow, famous for its unique bouncy texture, delivers bold colour & fine glitter in one swipe without creasing, fading or fallout.
For maximum coverage: Use fingertip and tap shadow onto eye lid. A flat, fine tip synthetic brush will work fabulously as well and is actually better for a more detailed application close to the lash line. However, your fingertips make for the most intense application.
To blend: Use a fluffy brush that has good movement, dip tip of the brush into the shadow and blend with a “wind shield wiper” movement throughout the crease of the eye. This will make your shadow softer and more diffused (like a total pro). When finished, close that sucker up tight! Don’t leave the jar opened for long periods of time, you may lose some of the magic that makes the Super Shock Shadow so amazzzing.

Shades:
Nillionaire- You'll be looking rich in this bronze with pink and gold ultra-glitter.
Bae- Ay Bay Bay, this is a rich eggplant purple with blue glitter.
Juicy Apple(discontinued)- Glitter sheer finish soft gold topped with gold glitter.
ColourPop Super Shock Shadows - Swatches Nillionaire Bae Juicy Apple
Let's Hear it!
I've never used anything like these eyeshadows before. The soft and smooth cream texture applies like a powder. I've found that it doesn't apply that well on the eyes unless you're using a sponge tip applicator. Juicy Apple was limited edition from the Hello Kitty collection but there are a few similar shades in the ColourPop range, the light gold shade applies very sheer with bright gold glitters. I love layering all of these on top of a cream shadow or color base. Bae is my personal favorite, it applies as a plum shade with blue glitter on the eyelids. Nillionaire is my go to for a little pop on an everyday eye look. The bronze shade is perfection!
All of these last quite long on the eyelids without fading or creasing, just using a small amount and blend it is key to prevent creasing!

For more information visit ColourPop.com, these are $5 each but usually cost between Rs800-1000 if purchasing from a Facebook page.

Kiko Milano Haul from Dubai!

Kiko Milano Cosmetics Dubai Haul
Dubai is one of those places that super easy to visit and spend a good amount of your savings! Every time I visit I always avoid spending any money on makeup since it can get quite pricey, fortunately this time around Kiko Milano was having a 30% OFF entire store sale while I was visiting. If it wasn't for Nida's Beauty Bag and Maliha Red Alice Rao I wouldn't have picked up these beauties.
Nida recommended the Skin Tone Foundation and I have been in love with it! It's a very lightweight and natural finish foundation. I've been trying to stray away from matte foundations and go for more dewy and satin finishes, this is definitely my favorite so far. I got the shade Gold 50 for those who are Mac NC 25.
Kiko Milano Cosmetics Dubai Haul Mall of the Emirates
The highlight (pun intended) of my haul was this beauty! The Water Eyeshadow in 208. Known to be the coveted dupe for Mac Soft & Gentle, I have to say this powder is the most smoothest product I've tried in ages. This lives up to the claim of being very glow on the skin! It's a beautiful champagne gold that looks STUNNING on the skin.

Swatches:

When this collection was launched, I was hooked on Tuscany and Cape Town. Both beautiful shades. Bordeaux on the other hand is something I could use to mix in with other shades to deepen it.
Tuscany- A muted brown shade with a pinky undertone.
Cape Town- A warm cranberry shade
Bordeaux- An almost black shade with a plum undertone.

Let's Talk About It:

The packaging for these liquid lipsticks comes with a doe foot applicator which easily applies the product evenly. These are super pigmented! Each shade works amazingly with an even coat, no patchiness at all. When it comes to the longevity, this is where I feel my Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks have spoiled me. These are not as drying and have a mousse-like texture which ends up fading after an hour or so. If you are planning to eat, these lipsticks will be completely gone from your lips.

Overall if you love a comfortable liquid lipsticks these are for you, just not for the extremely long-wear!

The OFRA Cosmetics Vintage Vineyard Collection is available on ofracosmetics.com for $47.90.

Tarek Rizk took the stage after and went on to discuss international trends and started a live demonstration by showing before images of models and then inviting them on stage to reveal their after looks followed by live styling and cutting before sending each model forward to walk down the ramp. The models with the same color family walked in pairs to demonstrate variations. The hair maestro styled 9 looks live on stage before inviting the IT GIRLS to the stage and styling their final looks before taking a grand final walk down the ramp with each IT GIRL on either side. Both IT GIRLS were dressed in Mango Pakistan which was the official wardrobe partner for the campaign.

The Copper Foilyage was created taking into account the fact that copper is the color of the season as spotted on the runways for Alexander Wang, Noon by Noor and Leanne Marshall. The colorists worked with a palette of red, gold and copper shades to sublime facial features and complexion. The Nude Beige has been inspired from the no make-up look trend that has taken the international fashion scene by storm as seen on ramp for designers like Dior, Chanel and Elie Saab who sent out their models in nude make up looks for a chic and natural effect.
