4- De.Like.Ful

I haven't done one of these posts in so long.. I love reading them as much as I do writing them..

Here are my recent loves..

Benefit POREfessional
This primer is wonderful for them nasty large pores.. It's not a miracle worker but it makes my foundation application a little more smoother by slightly blurring out my pores.. Lovely product.. Light-weight and very easy to use..

Chanel VitaLumiere Foundation - 030 & Shisiedo Sun Protection Foundation - SP60
Since the weather started reaching 40 Degrees Celcius and beyond in Dubai, I've been reaching for these two foundations.. They're so light-weight.. Feel like you're not wearing much on your skin and they lasts all day in our hot humid weather! Both work amazingly, however, I tend to wear the Shisiedo one when I'm out at the beach and I've never seen a foundation that works this well at the beach! Review

Giorgio Armani Master Corrector #2
Now this I love not for the coverage as it doesn't cover my dark cirlces completely but I love that it looks like you're wearing nothing under your eyes.. The most natural under eye product I've come across.. And it's not drying or cakey at all.. But I do feel the need to apply a heavier concealer on top..

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer - NW30
I'm almost out of this and it's truly the perfect concealer for our hot weather.. Stays put all day and gives decent coverage.. Not the best.. But for it's longevity it's so worth it.. And it doesn't need to be powdered which is awesome as I prefer not to powder my under eye area.. Review

Burberry Sheer Luminous Compact Foundation - Trench No. 06
I love the smoooothness of this powder.. And the finish of it is so velvety.. When I don't feel like wearing liquid foundtion, I reach for this baby and I'm good to go.. Review

Dior Rosy Glow Healthy Glow Awakening Blush - 001 Petal
Ahh now this is the perfect glowy pink.. And by glowy I don't mean shimmery.. But it is what it says.. An Awakening Blush.. It truly gives that fresh sweet innocent look.. And with a bronzed look, this just looks even more amazing! Like most Dior powders I've used, this is sooo smooth and blends so well.. Lovin it! 

Korres Monoi Oil Bronzing Powder - 02 Sunglow Warm
I love that I've finally hit pan on this bronzer (after I took this photo of course.. I'm not hallucinating I promise =P).. I've had it for a while.. It gives me a wonderful natural bronzey look without looking over done or too orangey.. This is great for those who are just starting out with bronzers.. Only think I don't love about this is the formula.. It's not as buttery smooth as other bronzers I've come across..

Tom Ford Cheek Colour - 03 Flush
This was love at first sight.. It's a bright almost neon coral that gives such a beautiful summery look.. It's very pigment and blends really well.. I definitely have been enjoying this a lot lately.. Review 

Cargo Blu Ray Blush/Highlighter - Peach
It was sooo hard for me to find this at sephora as it was always out of stock.. And when I got my hands on it, I loved it! It gives such soft colour to the apples of my cheeks with a beautiful subtle highlighter that does not emphasize my pores.. The formula is really smooth and it photographs so well! I think it's one of those underrated products.. It definitely deserves more praise..

L'Oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim - Intense Black
This is a great liquid eye liner for beginners! You have total control on how thin or thick you want your line to be.. And the best thing about this is that it hasn't dried out yet and I've had it for months! Very easy to use and is the perfect eye liner for achieving cat eyes ;)

MAC Bronze Eyeshadow
I've had this palette for a while but never gave this shade much attention.. It's an amaaazing summer shade! Brightens up my lids while giving me a lovely warm summer glow! Great MAC shade which is also sold individually in their permanent line..  

MAC Woodwinked Eyeshadow
This has more gold in it the the Bronze eye shadow.. I can't wear very light eye shadows as they make me look lazy eyed.. So this is a great alternative.. Gives a beautiful sheen to my lids and is a great everyday shade!

Burberry Midnight Brown Eyeshadow
Many bloggers have written about this but it seriously deserves all the praise it gets.. Burberry has one of the best quality eye shadows and this is no different.. I love wearing this mostly on the crease and along my lower lash line.. It blends beautifully and gives my eyes very flattering depth..

Guerlain Mascara - 01 Noir
This was an unplanned purchase.. And I don't regret buying this at all.. Apparently it's the blackest mascara in the market (not that it really matters to me because I already have dark lashes).. This mascara holds my curls, gives me length, little to medium volume and the funny thing about this mascara is that it smells wonderful!! Also, when I apply this, it doesn't harden my lashes which is wonderful, as I can layer other mascaras on top without worrying about pulling any lashes.. It washes off really nicely.. No crazy panda eyes with this mascara.. It also contains some ingredients that apparently help condition your lashes.. But I haven't noticed anything different about my lashes in that regard.. And last but not least, yes it comes with a mirror.. Pointless in my option and they sell refills which is great as I won't have to pay the same amount if I decided to purchase it again! Definitely a pricey mascara but love the way it makes my lashes look.. Wish it gave more volume though..

Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil in Zero
I don't loooove this eye pencil but it is a good one for my water line and I have been using it a lot.. Glides on nicely but not as long lasting as I hoped it would be.. But still a good eye pencil overall

Too Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner - Perfect Brown
I really like this brown pencil.. I use it mostly on my upper lashes for a soft eye liner look and it doesn't budge all day! Very creamy when applied and can be smudged out easily before it sets.. Great one for the summer!

Burberry Lip Glow Blush - No. 04
I just started getting more and more into lip gloss and let me tell you.. This lip gloss is superb! Very hydrating and non-sticky.. It contains tiny tiny shimmers that are barely detectable on the lips.. Love the shade for an everyday look.. Fades nicely.. Doesn't leave my lips cracked looking or patchy... Great pigmentation!
Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Intense - Mat 4
Matte lipsticks are a favourite of mine.. Although this formula is a little bit drying, I love this lipstick for it's natural shade and longevity.. It's not as smooth or creamy when applied but it is a matte lipstick that works well with our summer heat.. 
Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet - 33 La Distinguee
I adooooore the texture and the formula of this lipstick! It's matte but not drying at all.. Long-lasting and the shade.. oh the shade is just sooo flattering! It's like a natural peachy nude sort of shade.. A good one for those who are afraid of going too nude with their lipstick..  
Dolce & Gabanna Lipstick - 170 Dazzling 
In the tube this looks like nothing special but I absolutely love this lipstick! It contains gold shimmer but isn't noticeable on the lips.. In the tube, the shade looks waaay too dark.. But on the lips it gives that beautiful old hollywood look.. This lipstick has amazing longevity and once it fades it gives a beautiful stain to my lips.. Will be writing a separate review on this lipstick soon..

Burberry Lip Cover - No. 10 Dusty Rose
Another amazing Burberry product.. This lipstick is so creamy yet the finish is not too glossy.. It hydrates my lips and this shade is exactly what it is.. A dusty rose..Great for those who love a natural raspberry bitten lips..

MAC Dervish Lip Liner
This has saved many of my "nudish" lipsticks from being neglected.. I wear this to deepen my nude lipsticks and it's just to natural and works on many lipsticks I own..

And that's what I've been reaching out for the most the past few months.. New products have come into my life.. So stay tuned for more reviews ;)

Dear, I think I want at least 5 of the products you posted about (TF Flush, Burberry Midgnight Brown, Armani corrector, Chanel VL Aqua, etc.) and have just added them to my mental "to-buy" list! I am actually currently using a sample of the VL Aqua foundation and I <3 it.

Great post as always! <3

You should try GA's new version of the concealer; better coverage, yet same natural effect.

Love your list... Keep 'em coming

I found your blog through your youtube channel and your nice comments.
Love your posts. I totally agree with the reviews you have on products we both own. I am excited to use the Porefessional, we will see if it breaks me out.
