Here are my favorite products of the moment. I apologize in advance as I know you won’t be able to find most of these products if you’re in Bahrain! I picked up these products in Kuwait and Paris.
Illamasqua Gleam Highlighter in Aurora – I’ve never been much of a highlighter person. I was afraid of highlighting because of my oily skin. I was always worried that my face would look oilier with highlighter (which it already is most of the time). Beauty gurus continuously rave about this product and I decided to try it. I am so glad I did! I’m in love with the effect of this highlighter – my skin looks glowing and dewy (not oily!). I love that the shimmer is subtle and can be blended in to look more natural. I also love the creamy texture, because it sits perfectly on your skin (and yes it will last all day!).
MAC Pro Palette – What I love about these palettes is that you have the freedom to choose whichever eyeshadows you want. While it’s a hard choice for the four squad, I selected neutrals that are appropriate for daily use. The eyeshadows are the following (from top left to bottom right): Satin Taupe, Haux, All That Glitters, Texture. My favorite of these eyeshadows is definitely All That Glitters, it’s just the perfect shimmery champagne base. I love using Texture as my crease shadow with All That Glitters as a base. Satin Taupe is such a versatile color and looks different on every person’s eyelids. It’s such an interesting color that I’m still experimenting with. Haux is a great matte brown shade that I use on my crease. I recently traveled with this Pro Palette and used it almost everyday!
Sabon Body Dew in Magical Moments – This is like body oil spray. It’s alcohol and oil-free, which is great because you can spray it anywhere on your body. I love the refreshing and fruity scent for the summer. I love spraying it onto my skin after a shower.
Sabon Shower Oil in Patchouli Lavender Vanilla – This shower oil smells amazing and makes my skin smooth and supple!
Sabon Body Butter in Patchouli Lavender Vanilla – This body butter is made with pure Shea butter, coconut oil and cocoa butter. I love massaging this body butter onto my skin after a shower. The body butter is moisturizing and as a bonus the scent lingers onto my skin! The packaging is cute too – but I just wish it came with a small spatula because I don’t really like digging my fingers into the product.
LUSH’s Kiss Me Lip Balm – I received this lip balm as a tester and really loved how soft it made my lips. It’s such a shame that I tried it when I was already in Bahrain! I must purchase this product soon.
