Well Hello there,
After much needed break and an adventure of a lifetime I am back to the land of the bloggers, I decided to take a bit of a break from my blog which was a very hard decision because I love you guys and I love talking to you, but in order to fully appreciate the adventure I had to put all my attention to it.
But now as I am back I decided to tell you all about it, first I am starting with this post about the favorite things that I have been using for the past months that I was abroad, as some of you that follow me on instagram – If you don’t you totally should- know that I was living it up in NYC for the past couple of months, I was interning in my field of study and it was a BLAST!
I tried SO MANY different new products as we here in Bahrain are very limited when it comes to beauty products, so I am here to share the things I have LOVE the most!!!
As always we are starting with beauty products
Stila Stay all day waterproof liquid eyeliner in intense black
After using thin brushes and gel liner I wanted a liner that I can apply fast, so I looked at a lot of pen liner and went through a lot till I found this one and oh my how I love it, it doesn’t dry I have mine now for about 4 months, it doesn’t crease or budge I used to put this when I went out for work at 8:30 and it stays till night time when I wipe it off.
Stila Smudge stick waterproof eyeliner in Cobalt
You know me I get bored of black liner and I need to change it from time to time, I never tried anything but liquid to line my upper lid but I took a risk with this one after picking it up so many times and putting it back down, and let me tell you this WOW, literary doesn’t smudge and stays on all day long!
Cover Girl Lash blast volume Mascara in Very Black
Hands down the best, I have been dying to try cover girl for a long time especially this mascara, and as soon as I found myself at target I picked it up and oh my my it is amazing!
Benefit GimmeBrow in Medium/Deep
Perfect for filling those areas that cant be filled by shadow or liner, this has fiber so it gives some volume to your brows.
Anastasia Brow powder duo in Dark Brown
I was very hesitant on getting this, I didn’t like the color, it was hard to use, but when I ran out of my benefit Browzing I picked this up and it was like “ Where have you been all my life”, perfect color combo, gives amazing texture and is very compact to carry.
Nars Radiant creamy concealer in Ginger
You know I love me some Nars, and I am a lover of their concealers, this time I picked up one that is a shade lighter than the one I would normally get, and my my did it make some changes, I love it, its thick and creamy that it covers a lot but doesn’t feel heavy on your face, no matter what concealer I try this will forever be my holy grail of concealers!
Smash Box Photo finish foundation primer
I have tries this in another shade before but I never tried the normal one, I got it as a sample from Sephora and it lasted me months, and I loved how it made my skin smooth and filled the gaps I had and my makeup would last a lifetime when I have it on!
BareMinerals Original Foundation in Medium tan
I have never tried these just for the fear of not knowing how to use it, I walked into their store there and had a professional teach me how to apply it, now I LOVE it, it feels light and smooth as if your not wearing a powder at all!
Nars Bronzer/Blush Duo in Casino/Sin
Nars again, I picked this up just because I was traveling for the weekend and wanted something compact, I picked these two duo because I had all the other and let me just tell you this Laguna is over rated, if you ask me Casino is where the you should be spending your money, not too orange not too brown a perfect bronze, and the blush sin is just so gorgeous on the skin it gives a dewy glow.
Nars Blush in Seduction
Perfect burgundy for the winter <3
Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in ST.MORTIZ
I went a shade lighter again and it is the perfect shade for me, I've talked about this product so much sometime ago and I still stick to what I say, drop the foundations and stick to moisturizers ladies, gives the right amount of coverage yet benefits the skin at the same time.
Urban Decay – Naked 3
Didn’t think I would like naked3 until the day I picked it up and I couldn’t use anything else but it, maybe I’ll do my review on it in another post.
Dr. Jart O2 Cleansing foam
My skin was having a rough time adjusting to the severe cold weather, I went into Sephora and asked for a good cleanser for my breakouts, the first 3 times I tried this it rejuvenated my skin, left it feeling fresh and clean!
Dior Hydra life pro youth silk cream
Same thing goes for this I needed a good hydrating moisturizer and I was recommended this and wow did it hydrate my fry flaky skin!
Julep – Bette
Julep – Candace
Butter London – LA Moss
Formula X for Sephora – Pedal to the Metal
Mac – Heroine
My all time favorite, I have been looking for a color similar to a pure violet, it was buy at first sight!
Mac – Diva
Perfect winter color!
NYX – Perfect Red
The name says it all!
Maybelline – Elixir in Vision in Violet
One thing you outta know about me is I hate gloss or anything that resembles a gloss! But with this I ventured and bought it just for the color and when I applied this it felt so moisturizing and looked so good, every time I wore this I get heaps of compliments.
Clarisonic MIA 2
Finally got one and my skin hasn’t felt the same ever!
YSL Perfume – MANIFESTO
It smells so amazing, I’m bad at describing fragrances but go to your nearest Sephora and smell this it is divine!
Urban Decay – All nighter makeup setting spray
Something that I cannot live without, keeps my makeup intact and my face looking refreshed and glowing.
Raw Juice especially from Juice Press if your ever in NYC skip Jamba juice and go to juice press you can find them everywhere around the city.

You guys, do I need to mention Reign here? I think it already has its throne in this category.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how much charisma this lot has! They are so funny and perfect together, in these 20 minutes I laugh my heart out and dive into the adventures of these detectives, plus the Peralta – holt relationship is just so funny!
Resurrection - ABC
Oh my god has ABC hit the jackpot with this one, it has all the ingredients to a great show, Aliens / People returning from death / little kid that connects it all and a clever against all odds detective, I am always left intrigued after each episode I always want to know more, it is one of the best mid season shows, if you haven’t seen it go watch it it’s an 8 Episode season which just ended.
