2- De.Like.Ful

So here's my second De.Like.Ful from my De.Like.Ful series..

Oats - I use organic oats to cleanse my face in the morning and it makes my skin feel so hydrated and smooth (Review

TheFaceShop White Tree Snow Exfoliating Cleanser - I like using a gentle exfoliating cleanser at night.. And this does just that.. It gently exfoliates and what I love about it the most is the fact that it actually removes most of my makeup.. (Review)

Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist - This has been a skin savior for me during this heat.. It's so refreshing and hydrating at the same time.. I love misting this before my moisturizer and after my makeup.. Keeps me lookin fresh!

Sonicare Toothbrush - I hate things that vibrate.. I just don't like the feeling of it, let alone having something that shakes my jaw.. So for the longest time, I rejected the idea of an electronic toothbrush.. But a while ago I thought I'd do some more research on them and see whether they're worth it.. And after a lot of reading and watching videos, I decided to go ahead and get an electronic toothbrush.. From the first try, although the vibration annoyed me a little bit, I was amazed at how clean it left my mouth! You get used to the vibration.. I don't think it's that bad anymore.. I've been using this for almost 3 months now and I don't think I can ever go back to the traditional toothbrush!

Chanel Mat Lumiere Foundation - I've had this for a while now but because of the huge foundation collection I have and the crazy ups and downs my skin goes through, I haven't been reaching out for this much.. This summer however, I've been really enjoying this heaps.. Love the satin finish it gives.. It provides medium coverage and has a really good staying power.. I love applying this with my MAC 187 as I feel it really helps give it that extra flawless finish..

Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation - This is another foundation I've had for a while.. I really enjoy the flawless finish this provides me.. The shade is great for my skin tone.. And it stays put through humidity and heat which makes it amazing for our UAE summer weather! Only issue with this is that it photographs horribly.. Makes you look like a ghost in photos..

Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer - I trust Estee Lauder's Double Wear Line in terms of delivering a long-lasting product.. And this does wear well and surprisingly enough, it's not cakey.. I use this under my eyes and on my acne scars and it ain't bad.. It is medium coverage which is why it's not AMAZING for me.. Still on the hunt for that GREAT full coverage concealer.. But this has been my friend ever since I bought it 1 mont and half a go..

Giorgio Armani Master Corrector #2 - I had this a long time ago and used it up.. Then a few months ago decided to re-purchase it as nothing has been workin it's magic on my recent dark circles without creasing.. It's very light-weight but covers my dark circles nicely.. I still apply my Estee Lauder concealer on top of it just to ensure its longevity..

MAC 187 Duo-Fibre Brush - As mentioned above, I've been really loving this brush with my Chanel Mat Lumiere Foundation.. I pump a little bit on the back of my hands and pick it up with the brush then work in sections.. Stippling then blending.. Really love this brush and it's so versatile!

Beauty Blender - Now I know many has sung songs about this egg-shaped sponge.. I won't go into too much detail on it as I recently wrote a post on it (Review). But I've been loving this with the heavier foundations like Estee Lauder Double Wear/Double Wear Light & Vichy Dermablend.. Gives a beautiful seamless finish.. Doesn't let foundation cling to any dryness or sink into my pores.. A really great tool to have! 

Makeup Forever HD Powder - Now this I have a love/hate relationship with.. Actually it's more of a love/scare relationship.. It mattifies my face nicely without making it look too flat and it blurs my pores well.. However, the fact that it shows in flash photography scares me.. But I do use it when I don't want to add more coverage to my face and it helps keep my makeup on all day (Review)

Sigma F80 Brush - This is the only Sigma brush I have and I'm amazed at how soft it is.. It's a great brush for foundation and powder.. Lately, I've been loving it with powder instead of my powder puff.. And it brings out the great qualities in a powder (longevity & coverage when needed)

Bobbi Brown Taupe Eye Shadow - I wear this almost everyday when I'm rocking a natural look (which is most of the time).. I just apply a little bit on the crease and along my lower lash line and I'm good to go.. It gives my eyes a flattering depth and definition.. Looks boring in the pan but for me, it works wonders on my eyes (Review)

Makeup Forever Aqua Cream #13 - Great cream eye shadow for those who are looking for something that does NOT budge.. Also, it makes any eye shadow really pop! You do need to work quickly with this though as it sets in seconds (Review)

MAC Mulch Eye Shadow - This is my favourite MAC eye shadow.. I've had it for years and I really love it.. Such a flattering bronzy reddish brown.. Very easy shade to wear on it's on or as a crease colour.. Been loving this in combination with the MUFE Aqua cream #13..

Estee Lauder Double Wear Eye liner in 02 Coffee - I love brown eye liners for an everyday soft look.. And this is a great brown.. It's very creamy and glides on very smoothly.. I won't say that it stays on ALL day long in the weather I'm in, but it's been one of the best eye liners I've tried in a long time as it does not smudge or melt off like other eye liners..

Dr. Haushka Lip Care Stick - I throw this in my bag for when I need a simple plain lip balm.. It's great at hydrating my lips.. Only issue I have with it is that it's too glossy for my taste.. But does my dry lips some good for sure..

Clarins Lip Perfector in 02 Rose Shimmer - When I think of this product I think of the amazing smell it comes with.. Other than that, it's very hydrating and for a lip balm, it has a good staying power (Review)

Korres Lip Butter Stick SPF 15 in Rose - This is an almost matte lip balm.. Gives a beautifully berry bitten lips.. Not as hydrating as I would like, but not bad either.. I mainly use it for the lovely shade it gives (Review)

Yankee Candles - I've been on the hunt for candles that smell great without that waxy kinda smell.. And as lovely as Bath & Body Works candles are, they kinda smell waxy which makes me sick.. So I was so glad when I decided to give Yankee Candles a go because they make my room smell great without the candley scent.. Will have to get me the larger jars for sure..

Carolina Herrara 212 VIP, Givency eau demoiselle, Juicy Coutour Viva La Juicy - I'm such a perfume person.. I'm always wearing perfume.. When I go out.. When I come home.. When I go to bed.. I just love smelling good for me.. And these perfumes are all re-purchases.. I love them for different occasions.. I can't describe scents well but I will try.. 212 is the kinda scent I'd wear in the afternoons and evenings.. It's not too strong but not too soft either.. Not sweet nor fruity or flowery.. Eau Demoiselle is such a grown up feminine scent.. I wear this on nights out and gatherings.. Viva La Juicy is my signature scent.. I wear this with everything and anytime.. It's has a powdery scent if you know what I mean.. I just have to always have this in my collection..

The Help - When I get a chance to read, I've been picking up this book thanks to Beauty Scribbler, who is an amazing beauty blogger by the way =) Love the way it's written and how it's been told from the help's perspective.. Can't wait to finish it and knowing what happens.. So much injustice and discrimination back in the day..

And finally, it's Ramadan in the Islamic world and for those of you who don't know what Ramadan is.. It's a Holy month in the Islamic calendar where we fast (no food, no water) from Sunrise to Sunset.. The whole concept is about compassion and doing good.. Because in this month, you are encouraged to help the needy more than you normally do, be connected with Allah (God), and just commit good deeds.. And what I love most about this month are: 

Family Gatherings

The Spirituality in the atmosphere

The Night Life

And of course the FOOOOOD!

Love these posts, the Double Wear Light foundation sounds good, and I might have to purchase a Sigma F80 :) x


Great post so informative. Love my mat lumiere, I must purchase the Giorgio Armani Master Corrector #2 I have extremely bad dark circles. x

Ebru said...

I really enjoyed this post and your amazing photos :) We have some favorites in common like F80 and the beauty blender (I'm in love!). I am also sharing the same fear of MUFE HD powder, I absolutely love the finish it gives but I hate how it photographs and makes me look like a ghost! Scary! Hope you're having a blessed month love, I really miss being with my family during this holy month. Hopefully I can make it out to Turkey for the celebrations after Ramadan :)

Larie said...

I read The Help in 2 nights. What a story! I was suspicious first of a white girl writing in a black lingo, but she pulls it off greatly.

And yes, Yankee Candles will perfume your whole place up.

I have Sonicare too but it's kinda been left alone for the past few months - Idk, I never felt it cleaned too well! :S I should start using it once a week atleast though haha! Wish we could get MUFE, it's so expensive here in Japan too! I also need to try the Clarins Lip Perfector, and I wish I bought the EL Double Wear Light for Japan - it's super humid here! Great 'faves' ;P

Great favourites I don't need to say much about the F80 lol, but I'm definitely wanting the Mat Lumeire.

I'm still not sure about the beauty blender just yet. I think I will eventually give it a try. Once I'm a bit more convinced. Great post! x
