Shahad’s Fashion Rack: The LBS (Faux Leather Skater)

DSC_2807 (1024x681)

Hello fashionistas! welcome back to the blog !! so, today i have an introduction, for the faux leather skater skirt, this is the first type i’m going to talk about, and i’m really excited to, because i love the faux leather skirts..

large (4)

The Faux Leather Skater, represent multiple style, basically you shape them however you want, if you want a totally edgy style, you can do it, and if you want a cute, almost Tumblr-y kind of style, you can do it.

also, you can wear it for multiple occasions, make it casual or make it a little semi formal, you can totally do that !

large (5)

And what i also love about it, is that the fabric is most of the time quite light. So, you can get away with wearing it on a summer night or a winter day, by layering a couple of pieces together. 

I basically love wearing it all year round, because i basically love Black !

There’s multiple styles to the Black Faux Leather Skater, some of them are laser-cut at the bottom, some of them are laser-cut all over (pictured) and some of them are plain black, like the one we are talking about 🙂 

I wanted to talk about the plain black, because it’s plain and our job is to spice it up ! !

large (2)

In a time where i was looking for the faux leather black skater, i noticed that some stores have them online and others have them in store. some of the brands they sell them.. 

H&M

but it's not that pretty, but basically holds the same idea of it all.

but it’s not that pretty, but basically holds the same idea of it all.

and it’s 129 SAR, i think it’s way too much for that !

Forever21

بدون

they have multiple versions of the faux leather skater,

13 23 56 98

and they have a longer version, which i found as the prettiest of them all..

78

which is part of the contemporary line.

I didn’t find any Faux Leather Skater on the NEW LOOK website, but i have one and i got it from they’re store, so you might find it in store of NEW LOOK. mine is part of the Cameo Rose (i think) sub-brand. 

large (6)

So, i got you three stores that are well-known internationally, because i have viewers from everywhere, so i need to add universal options, to please the majority.

that was it for today’s post, the introduction of the Faux Leather Skater, my next post will be about some fool-proof ways to style your Faux Leather Skater Skirt. until then.. see you next time.

Love, Shahad../

Shahad’s Wishlist: Beauty Edition.

بدون عنوان

Hello beauties welcome back, now these days; you’ll probably notice that i’m not really consistent with the posting schedule, so i might be posting 2 days in a row, or maybe only posting on Friday, or even posting every other day, because i haven’t been set to one schedule, because it’s just the first weekend of school, and i haven’t even made up my mind about my life yet.

but, let’s leave that aside, and talk about something we love, makeup, and not any makeup, the makeup i wish i had !! (wow, what an interesting topic to talk about !).

starting off with the face products..

0ca0ebfbc36df3d6a0f32045ea7051a7

@makeupbydanii_

@makeupbydanii_

The first thing i wanna talk about, is the Josie Maran Argan Oil highlighter, basically i wanted for 2 things, A.because it got mostly natural ingredients, B. it shines like nothing else + it’s liquid, so you can mix it with your foundation.

@makeupbydanii_ (pictured) mix it with her foundation all the time, you can see for yourself what gorgeous glow it gives.

0b6021222887bf7b734cf70ea9b06f6d 717356a0bb26d29ac0f5b5012ce1955d

the second thing is Becca x Jaclyn Hill Highlighter in Champagne Pop, it’s just that beautiful white gold, with a hint of peach, now; i love me some Mary- Lou, but a little hint of peach never killed nobody! in other words, Champagne Pop is the peachier version of Mary- Lou by TheBalm.

i was actually ordering it from Sephora.com, but they always cancel my order, so now all i got is wishing </3 🙂

e75de91c5f7ee61e08f6c68c8da2b4ec

Let’s talk blushes, this blush (Tarte Exposed) is so beautiful, like a nude pink color, i feel like it goes with almost every look possible, i don’t know why, but it just does.

i have put it on my list, thinking that i might find it in Sephora Champs – Élysées, only to find out that Tarte is only available in US and Canada </3 🙂

but, Oh well !

5ca3b1c17693417000f131723a0c18ed

Hourglass Ambient Blush in Diffused Heat, this is the “hot” blush as Estelle (from essiebutton) say. it’s a beautiful mix of orange, coral, and a hint of pink, it’s gorgeous for the summer, i can get it from net- a -porter, but it’s way too expensive, i need to achieve something to reward myself with it.

Let’s talk eye product..

e9e61bc4862ef92586271f04d3ba0e63 fcb40d9b4d94caa8f17034c1f913a9e5

This is the most luxurious everyday palette you could think of, like i might buy this as my High school graduation gift, because i could wear this everyday to university, and so as the weekend, but it’s way too luxurious for now, high school years, (Thank god only a year left !). Ladies & gentlemen it’s the Marc Jacobs Lolita Palette.

cae1f31fc0c6e8b57a35d81f26292fc5 fcd7d0e674d7fccab29f8cebb74edbd7

The Tarte Tartelette Palette, this palette have been captivating me since day one, it’s all matte, gorgeousness, and it’s the perfect palette for brown eyes (at least i believe that!), you know, it’s just so perfect, i can’t take it anymore, i even ordered it from Sephora.com, but they cancelled the order (Sephora have crashed my dreams </3)

moving it to individuals,

3a94830b67f6cde3c188b12d8273ccee 9f50271c47679a4e69cbf2a721e4fb96 175fcbe89cf80362d8bb977c14a30923

MAC Amberlights, it’s the most beautiful gold, my eyes have witnessed. i have no other words, it’s just so perfect !

I even got you a dupe; so, you’re welcome darlings 🙂

6c01660f91f0f708319d27bb3b0c4f86

MAC Satin Taupe, well i don’t need to say anything it’s a best seller at MAC. so yeah.

66b71f0fe5cb97556853dc10ce67271e 1b124293042ecc38955bacc84d9dc4a4

I don’t why, but i feel like MAC’s Coppering, would look beautiful on Green and Brown eyes, because it’s red-based, and red is the opposite of green on the color wheel, so it will make the green POP!!  and for brown eyes, well… i just feel like it would look good.

04dae64719e44abc5af881b4bf0e3a50

Not only is a great brow color for blondes, but MAC’s Omega would make a beautiful, unique crease color. it would spice up your crease work, imagine having Omega as one shadow for the crease, on an everyday look. that would look hella good !

0676c17bdc126bc9351d74aba0411923

@makeupbydanii_ used it   on the lid and crease.

@makeupbydanii_ used it on the lid and crease.

MAC Woodwinked.

Ever since  i watched Tanya Burr when she applied it and it turned in this lid and crease color, i knew this is love, like it’s just a brilliant color for this I-only-use-one-shadow-but-it-looks-like-i-used-2 look !

Pigments, pigments..

630e8e4cd7c0171d6a05c914c664f5f1

MAC Tan Pigment, everyone raves about it, i don’t know what’s the deal with this color, but it’s beautiful. i think that i would look great for a addition in your makeup collection.

18f892ca5bdb42e3d7396b4f99f8d107 92d7ef9cacef87ded1993fbf0cae6aa8

MAC Vanilla Pigment.

this is an incredible pigment for the eyes, as a highlighter, because it works on light to medium skin tones, kind of most of the skin tones. because it got this hint of white, gold, and rose gold all together, so it’s a total winner.

let’s move on to the lip products !!>> AKA Obsession 🙂

2ff1fe381cfe4c2b53e39289a65513cc 284e432ddb00377823352e561b825245

Kat Von D Lolita liquid lipstick. I don’t know what i love more, the packaging, the color, or the fact that i have a thing for Lolitas !! but this color was sold out for the longest time, and when they restocked it, i went to order it, but obviously the sweet Sephora.com cancelled my order already 🙂 but, positive Shahad thought that NYX Soft Matte Lip cream in Cannes, would make a great dupe for Lolita 🙂

fdaeedbb9ef54b98e2dc80707a2170e6 7678d9c88d2e2d38f837b6567e6da721

Before the whole Kylie Jenner shenanigans, i was on the hunt for the perfect nude for olive skin, and i stumbled across MAC Velvet Teddy, and ever since, it was on my list for so long, but i haven’t been to MAC that while, until the KJ thing became.. well, a thing!! and it was sold out ever since 🙂 (lost lovers !)

2d2cb3875e6c975a81375cd2f48ce6da f663d623820e02744bbb7837fd92860f

This is probably the perfect burgundy, dark lip color. MAC Media, i don’t see it a lot on the social media sites, as much as Rebel, Diva, Cyber, and etc. but it’s an absolute beautiful color for the fall and the winter.

i have a feeling this is the end of the post, thank you so much for reading and i’ll see you next time.

Shahad’s Fashion Rack: The LBS “Little Black Skirt” (A new series)

DSC_2807 (1024x681)

So, I’m starting this new series of styling called (Shahad’s Fashion Rack) and it contains everything, from my personal style, to what’s trending, to how to style them.

Now, i’m not a stylist, i’m NOT going to give advice on how to dress your body type (Cause i personally don’t) because style one must possess and own what you wear, fashion have no rules for me (except for color coordinating!).

i’m starting with a sub-series called “The Little Black Skirt” 

But Black goes with everything?! 

No honey, it doesn’t !

i tried for sometime wearing a certain colors with black didn’t go well for me. (Ex: a coral  top doesn’t really go with a black bottom) 

I didn’t say that it will look ugly, it just won’t look as chic and sophisticated, coral would go beautifully with a navy color.

let me show you side by side ..

59a0270da903d01cd869375c38d4e878

(On the left)

it looks good but it’s not as sophisticated, it almost acts a little clashy.

(On the right)

both colors blend to each other while making a beautiful statement for the outfit.

…..

so, sometimes black doesn’t save your outfit, it almost breaks it.

let’s be real, sometimes you go for the black just to save time and outfit, and survive the color coordination disaster. ( I do that sometimes).

so, that what happens when you color coordinate coral & black in one outfit, it looks like you took the way-too-safe side at surviving the color coordinating disaster.

Why Skirts? 

Because most people don’t realize how skirts make a total statement to your look, sometimes more than the LBD itself.

Why Black? 

Cause black is a multi-tasker (not in a goes-with-everything way!) but it can change your style. it can be sophisticated, edgy, chic, sexy, casual, classy, basically any style you could think of! and black is a statement, even though it’s a neutral.

………………………………………………………..

now, i’m not only going to style the pencil, or the skater, i’m gonna go deeply into every little black skirt, and talk about it,  also what styles does it represent, and also how to style it in the post after it.

and i’m not only gonna make sets, but i’m going to load some photos off Pinterest, We Heart It, and even sometimes; Google Images (can be helpful sometimes!)

What Shahad’s Fashion Rack contains other than that? 

sometimes, i will post some styling tips that interests me, and also some dupes for things if i could. some stuff that i liked, some styling. i might do other sub-series. a new trends that could be timeless, or how to make them timeless.

So, i hope you’re excited for that as much as I am. and i’ll see you soon..

Love, Shahad../

Mini Haul .

‫DSC_2749 (1024x681) - نسخة

So, i went shopping the other day for eid and upcoming things, and i got some stuff to show, from accessories to makeup, to nails, to clothing (basically everything!!)

and i can’t wait to show you..

starting with clothes because it’s only two things,

DSC_2752 (1024x681)

so, the first store i went to was Cache Cache, it’s a french clothing brand, and it got some of the most beautiful bohemian pieces, and i got this awesome top, and i don’t really know how to wear it, (i’ll just find a way to style it and post it for you)

but it almost looks like a Moroccan rug (you’ll know what i mean if you watched Shay M’s Morocco experience) which i think it’s so cool and unusual (’cause basically no one wants to wear a rug ?! ) but i like trying things people don’t usually wear.

and what i love about this top, is that the fabric is so light; so it’s amazing for the summer (even though we’re moving onto fall and winter) and it got fringes all around.

Again it’s from Cache Cache and it costs = 169,00 SAR / 29,99 €

DSC_2753 (1024x681)

2646701251_1_1_1

Next, is this top from ZARA, and i just love it and i’ve never thought of wearing something similar.

but i really love this top, and i can’t wait to wear it, and basically bought it because it appealed to me when it was on

Carli Bybel, 602B4812

but hers was much of a crop top, mine is longer.

and it’s basic white, which is good, and it costs 199.00 SAR.

i basically have nothing to say about it.

Let’s move onto accessories…

DSC_2748 (1024x681)

the first accessories store i went to was this one called Parfois (i read it in a French way for no reason, as in par-foo-waa and it’s a Portuguese brand, I’ve always thought it was French!) anyways, and i think i’m falling in love with their jewelry, like everything is basically bohemian inspired in there. so, i got these two beauties and they are making me happy every time i look at them !

the first earring is like a mini statement earring, like it’s not big of a statement, but it will stand out for sure.

and the second one, is that type that goes from the front and the back, kind of going around the ear of something !

both of the are silver wear, i feel like i have too many gold earrings, which is good; since the gold goes well with my undertone.

DSC_2750 (1024x681) DSC_2749 (1024x681)

& then i went to Accessorize (my favorite jewelry store EVER!!) and i got 2 rings, one is a gold triangle and it got sparkly bits all over the triangle and it’s from the Z for Accessorize line, which seems pretty cool in my opinion, since i find the letter Z cool enough.

and i got this awesome sterling silver ring, which i LOVE!! and i can’t wait to wear it.

moving on to nail products ..

DSC_2744 (1024x681)

So, i went to The Body Shop, and i got some really simple, helpful stuff for my nails. i actually use to use my sister’s but now that i got mine it’s like i’m free.

Please comment if you want a nail care routine, i could really help you from what to eat to how to prevent breakage as possible. 

so, i got the Almond Nail & Cuticle Oil, with a cuticle pusher. and i got the nail buffer or as they named it “Nail Polishing Block”

DSC_2746 (1024x681)

and i got the OPI Natural Base Coat, because I’ve heard really great things about it. and i’m excited to use it.

and i also got the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat. and the reason i got this is for something i’ll explain in an upcoming post. (hopefully soon!)

move on to makeup, Shall we?

DSC_2742 (1024x681)

I only got 2 things, and they’re basically Lip liners from Makeup Forever. i went there in the first place because of the MUFE Lip liner in 8c “the red one” and i ended getting it with another color.

DSC_2741 (1024x681)

I ended up getting MUFE Aqua Lip Liners in 8c, which is the only red i use and it’s an absolute pain in the butt to remove.

and i also got the color 14c, an amazing dupe for MAC Soar, except i believe the MUFE is much more expensive.

but i’m happy with my purchases.

So, that was it for the mini haul, i really hope you liked it and i’ll talk to you next time.

Love, Shahad../

Quick Tip Post : – Lipstick as Blush .

DSC_2749 (1024x681)

You know when you’re attracted to that beautiful, bright lipstick you’ve been eyeing for so long, only finding out that no one can pull it off but Nicki Minaj, after you payed for that lipstick. And now you’re stuck with it forever.. (not really, but you don’t want to get rid of it, because you paid for it! so you want to finish it up pretty fast!

DSC_2750 (1024x681)

That what happened with NYX Narcissus Round Lipstick. You know, i spent days trying to pull it off, but this lip color was hopeless. & i couldn’t just throw it away, or keep it like that with no absolute use for it!

DSC_2751 (1024x681)

I mean look at that, that’s clashing with my own skin!! so, i thought of something helpful, using it as a cream blush! it would add a beautiful flush to the cheeks.

DSC_2752 (1024x681)

with a little amount of that, you got yourself a pink cheeks ! i would suggest this color as blush for medium skin tones, because it’s too bright for fair, and too light and chalky for dark.

but if you want a statement, there you have it! plus it got some shimmery particles, so it will add a beautiful glow to your skin.

that was it for my quick tip post, i really hope you liked it, thank you for reading and i’ll see you next time.

REVIEW: Fair & White Paris Exclusive.

logo (1)

It’s finally here ! I’m finally writing it. so, this almost been like a pile on my shoulders, because I decided to review it the day that I started using it. while I might talk shit about it all the time, it’s just my opinion, and i’m here to tell you the things I didn’t like about it.

shall we start with the review? ..

so, today i’m going to review for you the “Exclusive”  range, and I’m only going to review the lotion and the Vitamin C serum.

i’m going to start with the lotion..

I got a photo from the internet, because i threw away the bottle when it got expired or rotten.

I got a photo from the internet, because i threw away the bottle when it got expired or rotten.

So, this is the Lait Corps Exclusive Whitenizer, which is basically a body lotion, to help rejuvenate the skin in order to make it lighter. and it’s suitable for all skin types.

so what it says on the bottle is that ” Developed with the utmost care by Labo.DERMA, the EXCLUSIVE Body Lotion ideally cares for pigmentary problems thanks to the enhanced performances of its ingredients. This EXCLUSIVE product rapidly diminishes unsightly spots and rapidly harmonizes your complexion. Its delicate fragrance, its rich and creamy texture give you a soft and nicely fruity skin. Apply regularly in the morning and evening on your clean skin.” 

Let’s compare between the size, and the shelf life of it.

Size: 500 ml / 17 fl.oz

Shelf life : 6 months from opening.

then it means this product will get expired before you finish it up, because for me it did.

talk consistency and scent.

the consistency of it, is quite runny (so, you’ll have to shake it with every use.) and when you shake it, the consistency gets thicker, and you kind of feel some texture into the mix.

the scent, is NOT pleasant at all, and in fact, it was almost the worst in the whole experience of it. so, it smells chemical, and if you’re sensitive to scents; i wouldn’t recommend it for you.

delivery system and application. 

DSC_2411 (1024x681) DSC_2412 (1024x681)

the delivery system isn’t my favorite, so i had to take it off, and when i took it off, it got easier.

the whole experience, did it cause any harm? did it do any good for me? 

now, some places in my body my skin tend to get sensitive around things, or maybe because those places were exposed to bacteria a lot, and it was closed off. tend to get some body acne, and some times i feel that this lotion was responsible of some of the body acne i got, because ever since i stopped using it, skin have been toned down with the acne a bit.

now, i’ve been using it for so long, and it didn’t do me a thing, like, i wanted to give it a second chance, but to be honest, Vaseline, Nivea, Jergens lotions are so much better than this.

so, i wouldn’t recommend this lotion.

Let’s talk about the serum.. Shall we?

DSC_2744 (1024x681) DSC_2745 (1024x681) DSC_2746 (1024x681)

Serum Exclusive Whitenizer with Vitamin C, a twofold efficacy (which i don’t know what it is!) and it’s suitable for all skin types.

So, what it says on the bottle and the website ” Its formula is richer in Vitamin C and aims at regulating melanin production and at clearing up your skin. This ultra-brightening care product illuminates your complexion, softens brown spots and refines your skin texture. Apply few drops morning and evening

comparing size and shelf life. 

Size : 30 ml / 1 fl.oz

Shelf life : 6 months

so, this is way too small now, (make up your mind FW Paris!) they both have the same shelf life, and one is 500 ml and the other is 30 ml. like that is really conflicted of them.

consistency and scent. 

it’s thicker than oil, but runnier than gel, so it was kind of pleasant to use.

as for the scent, it didn’t really have an obvious scent. but since it got Vitamin C in it, it had some orange hint in it.

delivery system and application. 

it got the same delivery system as the lotion, but i couldn’t take it off, due to the consistency differences, and the delivery system is much smaller on the serum.

the whole experience, did it do any harm? any good?

i gotta say, that i had much more pleasant experience with the serum than what i had with the lotion. at first i used it on my face, it was good, but then i felt like it was uncomfortable to use it on the face; so i used it on my body, it wasn’t bad either, but it didn’t do anything for me, at all, literally.

so, i liked it, it wasn’t all bad, but i think it didn’t do any good either.

that was all i had for the review, hope you found it informative, and helpful, and you liked it. so thank you for reading, i’m gonna go and throw away the bottles now. and i’ll see you next time.

Everyday Makeup Removing Routine .♥.

DSC_2743 (1024x681)

There’s a fine line between writing a post about the proper everyday makeup removing technique and my personal way of removing my everyday makeup, I took some time trying to figure that out.

So, Today I’m writing for you my personal way of removing everyday makeup ..

Most of the time i don’t wear makeup (maybe a little brow action), but when I apply makeup i usually do mascara only, that what i use for it the Nivea Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. 

& if i had to wear face makeup (not foundation, but BB cream and tinted moisturizer) i will use the love of my life L’Oreal Hydra-Total 5 Micellar Cleansing Water, which is totally amazing.

I also use it to remove liquid lipsticks, and long lasting lip pencils.

That was it for today’s post, short and sweet, hope you liked it, thank you so much for reading it and i’ll see you next time.

Shahad’s Wishlist: The Bank-Breaking Edition.

بدون عنوان

Hello Lovelies! welcome back!! so, today i thought about creating a mini series of my current wishlist.. and this is the bank-breaking edition and i’ll create different editions every once and a while.

so, i thought starting with the ones that are quite expensive hoping one day, i’ll buy one of them #agirlcandream !

6ae2b82ce90f4692b54156271f124eac dior-beige-beige-patent-leather-cannage-heel-platform-heels-product-2-3827221-837179981_large_flex

Christian Dior Cannage Cage Platform Heel Pump. 

This is such a beautiful pair of heels, and the color combo is exquisite, Nude Beige with Gold accents, so good.

they have them in Black and Silver. but it didn’t speak to my soul like this one.

0fd69b67351b652dfe1210fa116daf98 6ca4fccc305701912431142dccb79ea5 32ebd86add6664177b4512feefad520c 3639647692c0efadf3ea2cb87d93b6c3

Christian Louboutin So Kate.

I want this as my graduation gift, maybe i’ll even keep a “Louboutin Fund” from now, when i happen to travel to Dubai or Paris or even Kuwait again.

I love it in Black, although i have been fantasized of the Nude color, but…

I’ve got an idea, why not ask for a So Kate in Black on a graduation, and save some money for a Nude Pigalle?!

BRILLIANT!!

I will definitely do this !

Moving on to the bags..

85352b924acd3bf3f30df64eed77cbb6

Hermès Birkin Bag.

I was searching the media about the price of this bag and i happen to read in Wikipedia, that it swings between £6,700 – £100.000 ($10,500 – $150,000) which is a total bank-breaker.

It is named after a British singer and actress Jane Birkin, and it’s a fashion symbol of wealth due to its high price !

“A girl can dream”

3d0fb32686a795ad90472ae736e14391 a49d05b1f3f5c0da849017dfaeb433a0

Chanel Boy Bag.

This bag have captured my heart in so many ways, if i ever went to buy it, my life is almost complete, but i would love to get it in the Black and Gold, although the Burgundy and Gold are a total heart throb. i once saw a girl wearing it in the airport, when we were on our way to Paris. she had it in the Burgundy and gold color. it was beautiful.

37b686f11e9e2a37eb753204d1a81a49 011054f2d405e63e037200a544ab9170 03e7e813ce421df9d4b0cb93a7ee0407

Saint Laurent Sac De Jour. 

In my humble opinion, this bag is kind of resembles The Hermès Birkin in a way, but much cheaper, but it is on the list for so long! !

and i think the Grey, Royal Blue colors are so beautiful on this bag, what do you think?!

752102e355c45a0cdf63a71a4ffba0e8 907119f8d6c01377a161663f06153733 c15ee843e1329bbdc9b32567c28cca4a tumblr_nod1kq8LVI1r13tieo1_1280 cba6a71b808ceec4cb48d9134840f283

Givenchy Antigona. 

This bag is giving me LIFE!! i wanted this bag for so long, but it’s not nice of me to buy it just like that! i wanted to have money, and make it a reward for myself. I’ve always wanted the black leather, but lately I’ve been eyeing the nude, camel color. which is phenomenal ! !

Last but not least, the love of my life, the ultimate reward to myself..

112782e389e3c0162ab3df42563b6f18 _8447048

Herve Leger Red Bandage Dress.

this have captured my heart ever since i saw that woman heading into the doors of the Shangri-La Hotel in Dubai, and man that is the best dress i’ve seen in my life !!!

i found it on Nordstrom, and i keep fantasizing about wearing it with the Black So Kates for Louboutin, and that Black and gold Chanel Boy Bag. it’s the perfect outfit ❤

Questions Given: 

1} How many people have you told about your blog in real life? Only 3 people, my mom, and 2 of my sisters.

2} How many foundations do you own? One and only Nars Luminous Weightless Foundation, because i’m not huge on foundation really!

3} What’s your favorite eyeshadow color? I simply love all eyeshadow colors, but my true favorite, will probably be Camel, Copper, and Olive.

4} How much time do you spend doing your makeup on a daily basis? Pretty much depends on my mood, sometimes 5 minutes; and sometimes 20 minutes. it all depends on the amount of makeup i want to wear that day.

5} Favorite makeup brush? Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush. Perfect for everything!

6} When you go to the drugstore which brand do look for first? Probably Revlon, Bourjois, and L’Oreal.

7} What’s your first makeup item? I think it was a lipgloss, it was the Rimmel Royal Gloss, which i traded it with my sister for another Rimmel lipgloss, it was the Stay Glossy, i used to wear it all the time! i don’t think they make those anymore, but yeah i’ve been a gloss junkie back then!!

8} Do you regularly, or ever have self-tanned? Never self-tanned ever! but that doesn’t mean i attempted to, i tried to make it with bronzer, cocoa powder, but i failed! i embrace my color now, which is not so far away from being tanned, basically i’m olive! and my climate doing its job basically!

9} How do you feel about overdrawn lip? I feel like it’s a hit or miss, if you’re good at it, you got yourself some Rosie Huntington-Whitley effect; but if you failed, you might look like you made out with a clown who lost his circus tent! but i personally don’t do it!

10} Do you contour on a daily basis? Even on special occasions, i don’t contour. Although my face is round, and sometimes i feel the need to, but that’s not my makeup style. My makeup style is all blended and almost no clean line.

I’ve never been social, actually, i was anti-social for most of my life, i’m breaking out of my shell (or at least trying!)

Shahad’s Beauty Book: Lip Balms.

DSC_2728 (1024x681)

Hello beauties ! Let’s talk lip balms, you know when you go to the drugstore and you see a pretty lip balm, only to find out it does everything but BALMS your lips?! I’ve been there girl! and now, I’ve got you covered! and here’s the guide of lip balms serving all kinds of lip balms (except the pot one, i stopped using them for no reason!) .

DSC_2730 (1024x681)

Matte Balms, Stick Form : Great for before makeup when you don’t want to ruin the finish of the lipstick. Especially this one “Labello Soft Rosé” is a cult favorite and it’s quite hydrating also, and it’s great before liquid lipsticks or matte lipsticks in general, because it’s more hydrating than other matte lip balms.

Glossy, Tube Form : works great if you wanted to add on top of a matte lip product. or any lip product in general if you wanted that glossy finish, plus this particular one “Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula, Dark Chocolate & Cherry” taste so good, which is always a winner. and it contains Vitamin E which got great hydrating properties.

The Tinted Stick Form : you can go out, have fun, you got your face on, but in reality; you’re wearing a colored chapstick but, whatever. as long as it adds color to your life, you’re set for the night, day, whenever! “Maybelline Baby Lips” is a well known baby, need no intro.

DSC_2734 (1024x681)

The “Almost” Dry Formula : this one is the absolute best for lip priming, because it’s kind of sticky (which is awesome for the lip product to stick) but not slippery, so you can line your lips with a lip pencil all the way, without it slipping and sliding. this one “Weleda Everon” got some beeswax in it, which explains the stickiness, and some natural Jojoba Oil, which soothes the lips, and the natural Shea Butter, which is known for the moisture and hydration, for it containing Vitamin E and other fatty acids and Carotene. and it’s an all natural lip balm.

DSC_2735 (1024x681)

The Classic : Clear, basic hydration, non-glossy, tasteless, and scentless. works great if you’re at a place where you’re not allowed to wear makeup or color (My school for example) and also if you’re just sitting at home doing nothing, and for flights, actually this one “Rituals Lip Balm” was given to my mom at a plane going to Germany.
