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.

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!

Thursday, June 22, 2017 Unknown 3 Comments

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.

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.

Glowybox Bloggers Meetup!

Saturday, June 10, 2017 Unknown 0 Comments

Glowybox held its first bloggers meetup here today at Café Mocca and discussed the formation of a beauty association with stakeholders. Present at the meetup were also beauticians and models. The idea behind the meet-up was to provide an on-line platform to beauty bloggers, models and make-up artists so that they can keep abreast with the latest beauty trends, discuss beauty issues faced by women round the world and to familiarize them with the concept behind Glowybox.
Glowybox is an online subscription service consisting of best makeup brands within a single box. The GlowyBox offers a range of subscriptions plans and each GlowyBox is a different mix of beauty product types, including makeup, skincare, fragrances, body and hair products.
The custom-made box of five luxury cosmetic and wellness products, hand-picked by beauty experts is mailed directly to the customer’s door. It promises to be the best present for any occasion and is the perfect answer for people who feel too lazy to go out and shop for an appropriate gift for any occasion.
The best part about glowybox subscriptions are that customers can get shades according to their skin complexion and type by filling out a beauty profile which they get when signing up.
The fun evening culminated in a sumptuous iftaar provided by Café Mocca.
