Radiance-boosting pigments

“I’m looking for …

… a fresh and even complexion, because it puts me in a great mood!

The fresh water flower fragrance, and 6 radiant and fresh shades that make the complexion glow and leave skin feeling plump!

CITY RADIANCE is enriched with coated pigments, which create an affinity with the skin; They provide a perfect hold throughout the day and boost the natural radiance of the skin.

CITY RADIANCE’s light and airy formula hydrates the skin continuously for 24 hours while protecting it from aggressive urban factors.

The bonus? A texture that lets the skin breathe, so comfortable that you even forget it’s on!

The weather may be changing but desire for a dazzling complexion remains!

… an anti-pollution foundation … so that my complexion remains radiant from morning to evening .

Pollution is stressful for the skin. It saps skin’s vitamins and weakens its defences, which damages its radiance and vitality.

With its anti-pollution screen, CITY RADIANCE helps the possibility of carbon particles settling on the skin and provides a bare skin finish.

The skin is protected, the complexion fresh and even.

… a foundation that protects me from UV rays… I do not want to have dark marks”.

Even without the strong sunshine in winter and spring, UVA rays, responsible for premature ageing of the skin and pigmentation spots, still remain.

Red Lipstick for Valentines day.


An ode to red lipsticks …..if you are following my on instagram @q8mangopeople than you must have been seeing that I am sharing some of my favorite red lipsticks since the start of February and why not who doesn’t like a classic red pout….I love red lipsticks which is growing day by day…as it looks very classy and elegant with shiny lids and a simple winged liner dont have to work much to look good! Just a few steps to follow foea perfect pout while wearing are Red or any lipstick and even a lipstain (my new crush).

1. Exfoliate- this takes away all the dry skin off the lips take your fav lips scrub..don’t have any no worries mix some oil with sugar and gently scrub the lips.Wash it off with some warm water

2. Hydrate-this is very important specially after srubbing as it provides .moisture and hydrates the lips

3. Conceal- Why conceal? As this step will cover the lip and pop the lipstick color.

4. Line lips-Before lipstick use a lipliner either the lipstick shade or a few shade deep..this stops the color from bleeding  and also gives the lips a perfect shape…a tip to make the lipstick more long lasting, use the lipliner to fill the lips and than apply the lipstick will adhere to the lipliner and will last for long on the lips.

So here are my red lipstick picks with some detail!redlip-collage

Review : MakeupForever Lipsticks

mufecollage Hi beauties,

Winters call for more moisturizing lipsticks so wanted to show you some very hydrating lipsticks without compromising the color yes the Makeup Forever Lipsticks which are moisturizing , hydrating and the color payoff is just brilliant… surprisingly not feeling heavy on the lips….if you own one you must be knowing what am I talking about! Adding to this the longevity is also noteworthy…lasts for 4 to 6 hours.

As it says ”  Rouge Artist Natural and Rouge Artist Intense adapt to every trend and mood. Flashy, floral, radiant, romantic. From the most classic to the most extravagant colors, from the most natural to the most sexy. A hint of nude or passionate red. A flashy sorbet or fruity candy…Now you can find every colour and every texture at MAKE UP FOR EVER .”

Just read that these lipsticks have cupuacu butter, an essential fatty acid. The lippie also has candelilla and beeswax which adds & lock moisture plus increases the longevity of the color. It’s also formulated with mother of pearl and colorful pigments, so the result is a translucent shine…impressive.

Got some gorgeous picks which can be worn everyday

MUFE Rouge Artist Intense #44  A satiny brownish red shade

MUFE Rouge Artist Intense #20 A Pearly Rusty shade

MUFE Rouge Artist Natural #N10 An iridescent coppery shade

MUFE Rouge Artist Natural #N50 An aubergine shade


Hope you enjoyed the picks….these are  easily available at Makeup Forever stores across Kuwait.

Perfume Review : Calvin Klein Euphoria Liquid Gold


Hi beauties,

Wanted to talk about this perfume from so long when it was launched here …..its so addictive, purely a piece of luxury. I am a huge fan of Calvin Klein perfumes…have to show you how many till now I have got 😉

Calvin Klein Euphoria Liquid Gold was launched this summer and its exclusive to MiddleEast only so its very special….so all Calvin Klein fans who are planning to come to middleeast don’t forget to have a sniff of this…its beautiful.

Comes in a gorgeous gold and black glass bottle which well characterizes the middle eastern culture.As its a woody oriental perfume so I think its perfect for this time of the season to enjoy the warm notes of sandalwood, cinnamon &  indulging in the mystery of black orchids.A very deep, sweet, luxurious, rich, warm n creamy and very long long lasting perfume…so addictive must be experienced!


Available at Vavavoom,. Debenhams, Wojooh & Harvey Nichols

Review : Boots Foaming Cleanser & Boots Cleasing Water


Hi beauties,

Had been using some Boots products from some months, I think now is the perfect time to give my opinion on it…so before I start I may tell you I had been using the Boots Foaming Cleanser & Boots Cleansing Water..this is not my first time I had been using any Boots Lift & Luminate day & night serums for a while too which I loved as they were very light on skin, non-cosmedogenic and hydrating.

Boots Foaming Cleanser

The foaming cleanser comes in a cool light green pump plastic bottle very travel friendly also….comes out in nice foam ver latering and suitable for my kind of mix skin…. best thing not drying and I used it after cleaning my makeup just takes all the residue of makeup away.Has a mild fresh scent…I think I will get more for myself as it has that all that a good cleanser needs!

Boots Cleansing Water

This comes in a transparent see through bottle, has a rotatable press pump which can be locked…again very travel friendly…I am loving this cleansing water as its  gentle & takes off makeup in few swipes.No oily residue  is left after taking off plus can be used on eyes too doesn’t sting.I don’t wear a waterproof  mascara, so don’t know about that but the regular one just comes off easily with this. After wiping off my makeup I feel my skin hydrated, clean & fresh.

I posted some skincare range on my Instagram too, have a look below


I would definitely will be trying more from the skincare range as its so good quality and not much expensive. If you are looking to try a gentle skincare hygiene than I will say must try these!

Review : Mac Kelly & Sharon Osbourne Makeup




Hi beauties,

Last week Mac Kelly & Sharon Osbourne collection was available here in Kuwait which just went off the shelves in a blink the whole collection was sold out till the evening….actually it was the awaited limited collection so everyone was eyeing on it… as it said The most fabulous mother-daughter duo,a limited-edition colour collection with the inimitable Sharon Osbourne and Kelly Osbourne.”

So lets talk about my collectibles 😉 I have the Mac shadowlady quad eye palette , Mac patentpolish lip pencil in Ruby, Mac Dodgy Girl  lipstick & Mac lipglass in Bijou


The eye quad is so gorgeous comes in signed lid with metallic purple packaging, consists four gorgeous colours in the shades Tickety Boo, Fizzy Rose, Spoonful of Sugar, and Shadowy Lady. From up its a shimmery silver and soft muted plum second row soft lilac pink, brown and dark plum.I just love purples they complement my brown eye color even the frosted purple packaging is so cute…love it.The darkest plum will be ideal for the smoky looks for evening and also using at the corner of the eye to create a socket as it very matte. Overall all of the colors are very good easily blendable, beautiful not chalky at all.


The lippies are amazing too very opaque and pigmented,.The lipstick I have is dodgy girl which is a milky purple shade, can say very purple will see how can I wear it.The patent polish is in a shade of muted red  & the lipglass in Bijou is a beautiful shade of rosy pink.



The collection consists of beautiful blushes and mineralize skin finish too I am eyeing the blushes and the MSF which are gorgeous  will try to get them too.

Available at Mac stores in Kuwait …not sure if all the shades are still available yet.

Product Review : Guerlain L’HOMME IDEAL Perfume



Hi beauties,
Today I am going to share a Men perfume Guerlain L’HOMME IDEAL which was launched in July….I just started using it and I tell you this is my & my Hubby’s favourite I don’t know what draws to it but its very elegant.I love Guerlain perfumes specially the Guerlain Rose Barbare admire how they come up with a mix of  mysterious seductive unique scents.

I find this unisex kind of smell not too masculine & not to feminine somewhere in between ….its woody, floral,  fresh , musky & spicy a full of mystery perfume….I just love to wear it specially on evenings just makes me feel so good & confident. My hubby finds it very masculine and he’s everyday reaching out for it…. I think I must get one bottle for myself now 😉



Comes in elegant dark bottle …simple yet seductive. It has notes of citruses, rosemary, orange blossom, almond, tonka bean,  leather, cedar and vetiver. Can say it feels just so so alluring every time I wear it.Its very long lasting,very strong when applied than settles to nice deep musky woody spicy notes I think its a perfect Fall perfume as fall calls for deep perfumes as the light summery perfumes just vanish in couple of hours and this will definitely for long hours which is a admirable quality in Guerlain perfumes. If you are fond of deep perfumes than have a whiff of this, personally I think some men are so addictive…if you think also this so than I am sure you will admire this! And can also make a graceful gift for your man.

Available at Vavavoom , Harvey Nichols & Debenhams.

Save a Manicure for days !


nail collage


Hi beauties,

Though I like changing my nail color every  two days but this peachy glam was sooo gorgeous wanted to save my beautiful manicure.I took this  for five days like the whole weekdays…as I was so in love with the color and didn’t wanted to change it. So when I got a bit bored with the single color look below what I did ;

1 . With a thin art brush I added  a gold reverse French manicure which gave it a elegant yet glitzy look.

2. After enjoying it for two days I added some daisies to my nail bed to make it more pretty which I did with a bobby pin 😉 With a white nail polish draw some petals, just dot and join in the middle, it will take a shape of petals. Than with a yellow nail polish add the middle dot.I added the glitter polish too the petals.Don’t forget to add a top coat to save it.

Tip ; This can also be done when the nail polish at the tips starts chipping , add the daisies at the tip where the nailpolish has chipped off 😉


Like this my manicure went for 5 days and was looking fresh & pretty 😉
