Delyteful Speaks is Officially a Mama

Words cannot describe how happy and grateful I am for everything God has given me.. And on the 15th of November 2012, God has granted me the best gift ever... 

My Little Baby Amna

Life already feels different.. It's amazing how this tiny little thing has stolen my heart even before I met her..

Here is a quote that describes how I feel.. 

"No one will ever know the strength of my love for you.. 
After all, you know what my heart sounds like from the inside" 

Although it wasn't easy and I know things will get harder and my life will change completely, Motherhood is truly a blessing

Review: ModelCo Fibre Lash Mascara

I looove fibre mascaras.. The Kanebo 38C Separating & Lengthening mascara was my all time favourite fibre mascara (Review).. So when Model Co. contacted me and asked to send me their mascara, I was super excited and couldn't wait to try it out..

My Hydrating/Dewy Foundations

My skin goes through different phases all the time.. Sometimes it's normal.. Other times it's dry and dehydrated.. So I always feel that I need to switch up my foundations to accomdate my skin's needs.. Which is how I ended up with too many foundations in my colleciton.. That and my curiousity about some products =P
So here are my hydrating/dewy finish foundations...

That One Eye Shadow I've Been Searching For..

I'm a Brown and Bronze eyeshadow kinda girl.. I just think they suit me the most.. But sometimes, I just want a very natural effortless everyday look.. So I've been on the hunt for a good light all over the lid shadow.. And because I have sort of deep set eyes, light shades NEVER look good on me.. They kinda make my eyes look too close or something.. I dunno but they just don't look right..
That was until I came across this beauty...

Dolce & Gabbana Bronzer, Blush & Lipstick

When I first came across Dolce & Gabbana cosmetics I was intrigued and attracted to the packaging and the counter set up and all that.. But after I swatched a few of their products.. I fell in love.. The quality was beyond what I expected.. Their products are such high quality I couldn't just walk away from them without treating myself to a few things...
So here are my D&G loves...

Forgive Me But Tom Ford Made Me a Savage!

Ain't nothing better than a blush that works as a bronzer and blush in one. I just couldn't resist the loveliness of the texture and shade of Tom Ford Blushes so I went ahead to check out what other shades they have to offer.. And this baby came home with me..  


- A very unique bronzy shade with a slight red and peachy undertones as well as very fine rosy shimmers that give a beautifully subtle sheen
- Not as dark as it looks in the pan so don't be scared
- Very pigmented so you need a little bit 
- Blends well on the cheeks
- Good staying power

Who Will Like This?

- Anyone who is looking for a blush that works as bronzer and blush in one
- Anyone is wants that bronzy summery look without looking muddy
- People with medium to dark skin tones.. This will look amazing on them

Who Won't Like This?

- People who have a naturally pinkish skin tone as this can make you look redder because of the reddish undertones and the rosy shimmers

My Final Thoughts: Despite the dark scary colour in the pan, this shade looks surprisingly natural on the skin.. I love the effortless glow it gives.. And as you can see from the comparisons above, I haven't found anything like it.. It's truly one of a kind..

Which blushes stand out in your collection? 

Review: Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Foundation SPF25

My skin goes through phases.. Dry or very dry.. So finding the right kind of foundation can be a challenge as many foundations cling on to dry patches or accentuate certain problem areas..

So when Bobbi Brown came out with moisturizing foundation that provides good coverage, I just had to get my hands on it..

- Easy to blend
- Medium Coverage
- Not the most light-weight foundation.. You can feel that you're wearing something on your face
- Good shade selection
- Must be powdered even if lightly to ensure longevity 
- Dewy finish
- Provides great hydration
- Contains sun protection, Shea Butter and Evening Primrose. It also claims to help replenish & strengthen skin over time

Application Method

I prefer using my finger tips to blend it into my skin, just like the way I would apply my moisturizer

Who Will Like This?
- People with dry skin, this is an amazing foundation!
- Anyone who is on the go and isn't too religious about moisturizing their face before foundation, this foundation is 3 in 1.. A moisturizer + a foundation + Sunscreen
- Anyone who cares enough to have ingredients that feed their skin in their foundation

Who Won't Like This?
- Anyone who has oily skin or T-zone as it will feel too greasy on their skin
- Anyone who prefers a matte or satin finish

My Final Thoughts: I really like the way this foundation feels on my skin and how easy it is to apply.. The key is to use a tiny bit at a time as to not pack the product on which can result in it feeling too heavy on the skin.. I especially love the dewy finish it gives my skin.. Makes it look healthy and glowy in a good way..

What type of foundations do you prefer to wear?

Review: Burberry Sheer Luminous Compact Foundation

With my dry skin, I don't usually reach out for powder that much.. But when I swatched this at the Burberry counter, I just had to have it.. And here's why..


- Amazingly smooth texture
- Gives a beautiful velvety finish
- Doesn't dry up your skin
- Does not control oil
- Longevity I would say is average.. Not so bad.. Depends on how hot your weather is
- Light to Medium coverage


- Although this foundation comes with a sponge, I never really use it unless I want to touch up during the day.. But I love applying this with Sephora Mineral Powder Brush #45.. It buffs the powder in sooo nicely

Who Will Like This?

- Anyone who is looking for a powder that won't dry up their skin
- Anyone who wants a powder to set their makeup without messing with the foundation's finish much
- Anyone who likes their powder to give that little bit of extra coverage

Who Won't Like This?

- People with oily skin as this does not control oil

My Final Thoughts: I love this powder.. On days I don't feel like wearing foundation, I apply concealer and then buff this powder on top for a velvety flawless finish.. At first it looks matte but after a few minutes when it blends in and gives a lovely glow to my skin.. Amazing amazing powder..

What's your favourite powder?

Brighten Up Your Summer With Tom Ford Cheek Colour in 03 Flush

Feels soooo good to be back!!! And with what?! A blush post of course!! =P

I decided I wanted to try at least one product from Tom Ford.. And when I saw this blush, I thought it HAD to be this one! It's a gorgeous gorgeous colour.. I did my best to capture it on camera but I still feel that it doesn't show its true colour...


- VERY pigmented.. I use a stippling brush with this as you need the tiniest amount
- Has a subtle sheen to it that it won't accentuate pores
- Gorgeous bright almost neon coral
- Good staying power
- Blends well

Who Will Like This?

- Anyone who is brave enough to at least try it.. I feel that it's the kinda colour that would suit even paler skin tones

Who Won't Like This?

- Anyone who isn't willing to spend that much money on a blush

My Final Thoughts: I absolutely LOVE this blush! It gives the most beautiful corally glow to the cheeks without looking like a clown.. I dab the colour on the apples of my cheeks and my look is transformed completely!

What is your favourite bright blush?

Delyteful Speaks Again...

I am so terribly sorry for the long silence on this blog.. I sorta kinda got engaged and now I'm getting married in 3 days!!!!! So you can imagine how hectic it's been for me.. This is the last post as a single woman.. When I come back (in February), Ima be a married woman! Haha It's crazy really how things work out sometimes..

So on to beauty!

I've been thinking so much about what I'll be taking with me on my honeymoon.. I want products that are easy to apply and of course ones that are long lasting.. And here are some of the products I've found while going through my beauty stash... 

Coverage: Light to Medium
Finish: Between a satin and dewy finish on me as I make sure I apply a rich moisturizer beforehand.. But I think it leans more towards a Matte finish
Application: Finger tips
Cons: The shade tend to have a slight pink undertone

The reason I'm taking this foundation out of all the foundations I have, is because this is super easy to apply and blends in so well.. It also gives my skin such a beautiful natural glow which is always what I'm seeking.. Not to mention, it's a skincare type of foundation.. Works well for those with sensitive skin!

Application: Fingers.. Blends like a dream
Longevity: Not too bad.. But I love that it doesn't crease..
Cons: If you have oily eye lids, you'll have to use a good eye primer with it

I've braged about this product here.. Love how easy it is to apply and how beautifully it transforms my eyes.. Also, this can be worn as bronzy highlighter!

Application: MAC 188 Stippling Brush
Cons: Dries really fast and once it does, it's really hard to blend out

This thing seriously does not budge which is what I love about it the most! You can read more about it in my blush post here.. The only issue I have with this is that you have to work super fast with is coz it dries quickly but I just adore this shade!

Finish: Satin.. Moisturizing yet not too glossy
Cons: Not very long wearing

This is pretty much the only baby pink lipstick that works well on my skin tone.. It's what I thought MAC Creme Cup would be.. Beautiful baby pink with tiny gold flecks that give the lips a nice subtle sheen..

And these are just a few of the products that will be coming along with me to my honeymoon.. Again I apologize for the very very very late post and I wish you all an amazing new year with new opportunities...

Be the best you can be!
