3 - De.Like.Ful

Time to share my likes for the moment...

Korres Wild Rose Foundation in WR4 - This foundation I almost added to my Blog Sale until I decided to give it one more try and I'm SO glad I did.. It's wonderful.. And the reason I didn't like it at first was because I applied it wrongly.. I found that the best way to apply this is using your fingers in a patting motion.. Gives a beautiful glowy finish with medium coverage.. This foundation also contains really good ingredients that help brighten your skin and make it look healthier. (Review)

Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream - This is a really wonderful mild moisturizer that works on all skin types.. It kept my skin hydrated during the cold Scandinavian "summer" and is not greasy in any way.. The texture of this cream is very light and velvety leaving your skin feel matte yet hydrated..

Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base - I already raved about how wonderful this base is in a previous post (Review) but this gives an amazing glow to the face and makes foundation application that much more flawless..

Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Balm - This was an eye saver during my Scandinavian trip.. It kept my eye area hydrated ALL day.. It's a balm so it's very thick and the finish is glossy.. Best applied at night but I wore it during the day on my no makeup days.. Full review coming up soon!

MAC Pink Rebel Lustre Drops - I got this at a Lil Lady's Life blog sale.. I've been enjoying mixing this with my foundation to get that subtle sheen..

Benefit Girl Meets Pearl - This I have a small size of and I really love it.. Even more so than the MAC lustre drops as it adds that little bit of an extra glow.. The colour is a warm golden bronze and mixed with foundation, it gives you a beautiful beautiful glow..

Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch - I dab on this primer on places where I have enlarged pores only and it helps make them look less visible.. Been loving this especially on special occasions (Review)

Tarte Amazonian Blush in Tipsy - I have wanted to try this blush for the longest time! And when I did a swap with the sweetest Danielle from Bloomin' Beauty, she was kind enough to get me one.. I was SO excited when I received it and I feel in love with it straight away! Really amazing matte bright peach shade that does not budge all day.. Even in UAE's hot humid weather! I need me some more of these babies!

Dolce & Gabbana 'the animalier' Bronzer - I thought this would be just another gimmick bronzer.. But when I tried it on my cheeks I was amazed at how natural it looked and smoothly it applied! (Review)

Jack Black Grapefruit & Ginger Lip Balm - My lips have been really dry the past few months so I've been experimenting with a lot of lip balms.. And Danielle sent me this one as well and again.. It was love! Really wonderful and easy to apply.. Not too glossy yet extremely hydrating! Plus it contains SPF25 which is great!

Ole Henrikson Afrian Red Tea Exfoliating Lip Salvation - I got this at the airport in Copenhagen, and I loooove the tint it gives my lips.. Not sure how it exfoliates my lips but it makes them feel and look good so I'm happy!

MAC Constructivist Paint Pot - Been using this heaps as an eye shadow and along my lower lash line.. Love it's longevity and the shade is my kinda shade!

MAC Vanilla Pigment - My only MAC Pigment and at the moment, it's the only one I want! It's extremely versatile as it can be used as an eye shadow, cheek highlighter, on the center of the lips and so on.. It's called Vanilla but the shade is a frosty gold.. Really unique! (Review)

Burberry The Body Perfume - Ahhhh at the risk of sounding so cheesy, this scent makes me happy! As soon as I smelt it, I knew I just had to get it! I'm such a perfume junkie.. I wear perfume all the time and this had to come home with me..

Burt Bee's Cuticle Cream - Another product I received from Danielle! Everything she sent me, I loved! I've never had a cuticle cream.. And this, other than the fact that it smells amazing, works great on my dry cuticles.. It's a hard balm that when applied, doesn't have a glossy finish which makes it easy to wear during the day.. It has become a staple in my bag!

Laura Mercier Berry Lip Balm - I've been wearing lip balms instead of lipsticks lately and this gives my lips the right amount of hydration and colour.. Another staple in my bag!

Essie Van D'Go Nail Polish - Seriously how gorgeous is this shade?! I know it's such a summery shade but I just can't get enough of it!

Nail Station Wow Factor Polish - I love this shade too! And with Van D'go it's the most beautiful candy shop combo!

Ipad Games - Haha yes I'm that sad.. I've been obsessed with Plants vs. Zombies and Pictureka on the Ipad! And before you judge, you really gotta play them first =P

Choki Choki Chocolate Fingers - These are one of my childhood chocolates! I love them.. They're so yummy! And I have bought a whole box just for moi! =P

Snowboarding - Living in the Desert and Snowboarding? Haha yes! Thank God for Ski Dubai! The largest indoor ski! My sister and I have been taking up Snowboarding lessons and we've both been really enjoying it! Apart from the frequent booty falls, it's been real fun!

And that's pretty much all!

I love the Korres foundation! I have WRF1 and I find it a bit too warm, so I mix a cooler foundation. It's great!

Danielle said...

UM, first...Plants vs. Zombies?!?! We ARE sistahs dear! I play that game when I have time and seriously, it's addicting. My boyfriend introduced me to it a year or two ago and I scoffed at first, but quickly understood why he liked it.
Thanks for the mentions dear, I am thrilled to pieces that you love everything. :) I hope the rest of it arrives sooooooooon!
You have a great selection of skincare likes right now that I *need* to look into.
I love your nail combo too!
