Best 2012 Beauty Products: Lip Glosses

I remember when I was in highschool I was obsessed with lip glosses. I nearly tried everything! So here's the verdict:

1- L'Oreal:

I've been using these lip glosses since forever. They come in different colours & shimmers, some colours are even weird!

They also have 6h lip gloss which is supposed to stay on for 6 hours. It did stay longer than the original one but I'm not sure it lasted for 6hrs!

L'Oreal cosmetics are available at Boots & Debenhams

2- Dior Addict:

If you want something more luxurious, glamourous and has as much colour as a lipstick, Dior is definitely the best choice.

They used to have lip glosses with light colours, shimmer, balm and smelled like candy but I guess they don't make them anymore. I got them long time ago from duty free so they might be exclusive.

 Dior is available in most big beauty stores like Vavavoom, Debenhams amonng others.

Best of 2012: Blushes

I used to hate putting on blushes cuz of my natural pink cheeks, but later on I found out that my pink cheecks don't always match my outfit or the season colours! So I decided to use blushers. The first ones I've tried were Estee Lauder's but didn't like them cuz they are very rich in colour and don't smudge well so they don't look natural.

So I tried Benefit since it was recommended by many people and their Dallas blush was the first Benefit I've used, and after using it I got obsessed with the brand. I should become their brand ambassador!

They have a big selection of blushes with new ones each year. They have pinks, beige, bronze, orange among others. Here are my fav:

They also have cheek/lip tints that are great for daily use. I currently use Benetint (Rose) but only on the cheeks cuz I've noticed when I use it on my lips daily they get dry & itchy.

Best Beauty Products 2012: Nail Polish

Since I discovered Model's Own nail polish brand two years ago I got obsessed with their brand. They have an amazing nail polish collections and they are always among the seasons' trendsetters read our previous post here. Unfortunately, they are not sold in Kuwait but Chi Nail Bar in Olympia uses them (although it's weird they're not using the professional line of the same brand). Since I'm living in the UK, I buy them online here or from Boots.

The new collection
Nail art pens

When I'm in Kuwait, I always buy Revlon's nail polishes. What I love about them the most is that you do not need a second layer, one is enough. Even a base coat is sometimes unnecessary. Revlon is available at Boots & Debenhams.

 When I don't find the colour I wanted at Revlon's section (since it's very small compared to the huge nail polish collection the brand offers) I go for Max Factor's Nailfinity. Just like Revlon, they are of good quality in addition to the long brush that gives you precision.

 Max Factor is available at Boots, Debenhams and other beauty stores.

Best Products of 2012: Lipsticks

Everyday I will post about my favourite products of 2012. Today I'm going to review lipsticks. My favourite of favourites is Illamasqua lipsticks. They are matte (you can always making them shiny by using a lipgloss), and come in different colours (even weird colours like black, navy & turquoise!). They also stay for a long time.

But when it came to a devil red lipstick I couldn't find it in Illamasqua and not even at MAC. Then I saw the perfect shade in a Bobbi Brown ad and I said 'I've finally found you'!  It's called 'red carpet' and surely it is!

Illamasqua is available at Harvey Nichols Kuwait.

Bobbi Brown lipstick are available at Bobbi brown branches at the Avenues & 360 Mall.

However, if you're looking for shiny lipsticks with balm, I highly recommend Chanel Coco Shine & Revlon Colourburst.

Revlon is available at Boots pharmacy & Debenhams.
