Event : Marks & Spencer introduces Spring’15 Collection




A few weeks ago got a chance to attend Mark & Spencer Spring’15 Collection showcasing event where they were celebrating the first glorious days of the spring season, Marks & Spencer previewed it’s vibrant and flattering Spring 2015 collection at an in-store fashion event attended by the region’s stylish including blooming bloggers at The View, Salmiya. The new womenswear and menswear collection presented at the event reinterprets the international runway trends into stylish wearable ensembles for both work and play, available in impeccable quality at great prices.


It Says ,”Luxurious in its simplicity, the womenswear collection is a celebration of the sleek and elegant. Contemporary shapes, effortless styling and clean lines are punctuated by desirable prints like oriental florals, abstract graphics, flirty polka-dots and nautical stripes. Colour is given a seasonal overhaul as the redefined neutrals- warm tans, textured blues and a spectrum of pinks creates the tone of the landscape.”

Below are the trends that define the mood of this edited flattering collection:

70’S SUMMER OF LOVE:  Hippy style goes haute this season with free-spirited prints and relaxed tailoring for a light-touch take on 1970s style. Relaxed vibe is evident with crochet details, floral prints and wide-legged jeans, simply embodying the spirit of the era.

MODERN ROMANCE: A romantic narrative veers from the dramatic to the flirtatious; as heavy lace meets peek-a-boo sheers, in a vivid feminine collision. Pastel pinks, white and red are featured in its standout pieces including the elegant fashion-forward pink limited edition skirt.

INTO THE BLUE:  Denim emerges as a trend in its own right, creating a new depth to the casual and updating the tailored.  Look out for fresh ideas, from cool jumpsuits to denim dresses – it’s time to embrace the blues.


ORIENT: An eastern sensibility informs this modern silhouette, as ornamental prints and sculptured separates are elegantly constructed for an exotic appeal.


STRIPES: The classic print gets a cheery makeover in refreshingly vibrant hues.  There’s nothing uniform about them either, as the modern effect is created with variable depth and width.





The menswear collection is a contemporary combination of formal and casual pieces styled together to create a relaxed, understated look for the season. Casualwear smartens up with modern interpretations on classic pieces, with the focus on clean lines, fine summer fabrics and masculine iconic styles, worn in a new tonal colour palette.


Key menswear items have been updated, with lighter summer weight deconstructed formal jackets and classic macs with design details such as an asymmetric fastening. Clean, simple t-shirts and light weight bombers are styled with coloured footwear to create this new look for the season. Blue is the key colour reference for spring’15 in both formalwear and casualwear, ranging from intense navy and midnight blues to paler denim and chambray tones. Denim jeans are available in improved fits, a full range of denim washes, new finishes and worn techniques, working with the most casual day looks as well as more formal outfits.This new season embrace the effortless sophistication and defining quality with Marks & Spencer.

Personally I loved the collection and the idea of fashion show( if you want to see the M&S fashion show clips check them on my Intagram account @Q8mangopeople) It was bright ,bold and very modern….clean cuts, every piece was impressive…I prefer the MS store at View is just so so vast & spacious, if you were be looking for any of the pieces do visit there.



The collection is now available in Marks & Spencer Kuwait stores at The View Salmiya, The Avenues Mall and 360 Mall.

Review : Roberto Cavalli Paradiso Perfume


Hi beauties,

Sssspring is here so it will be not be fair to not welcome it with a beautiful fragrance…and obviously having a new perfume is always very exciting (many excuses for having a new perfume) 😉

Roberto Cavalli Paradiso is the new perfume by Roberto Cavalli ….love their perfumes as they are always unique blend of fresh, floral & perfect amount of heartening Mediterranean aroma.

Before I tell about the perfume lets adulate this stunning looking bottle with the twinkling juice inside …can look at it forever …so beguile indeed. This is also a masterpiece an exotic dulcet ….very feminine ,one whiff and you will want more…. a mellifluous blend of sweet mandarin orange, bergamot , delicate cypress, pink laurel ,warm yet woody parasol pine and charming jasmine which is left lingering to the body for hours… for me it calls spring when new blossoms bud, lush leas give serenity to eyes and a warm breeze just lift you….feels so good after taking off the heavy coats & feeling light.

Do try if you are fond of sweet citrusy floral perfumes.

Available at Vavavoom, Wojooh & Sephora

Review : Note Cosmetics ULTRA RICH COLOR EYE PENCIL in Deep Forest


Hi Beauties,

Spring is here so a pop of color to make the eyes look fresh & bright….I love colored liners cant resist them. Had been trying the Note Cosmetics ULTRA RICH COLOR EYE PENCIL in Deep Forest an elegant bottle green shade.pencil-close

Its creamy, blends very well and glides like butter under or over the eyes…didn’t use inside the eyes as I have watery eyes so I’m quite sure this will not stay… As its creamy so set it with a loose powder or eye shadow of the same color to make it last for long hours.

Overall very pretty color has a gorgeous sheen which is just a steal for its price…highly recommended!

Its available in 10 shades ….Price tag just 1.500 Kd


You can find it at Kuwait city , Mubarkiya, Souq Zal , shop no. 35 and also at Jahra, Alamiya Mall.

Or you can contact their Retailer here in Kuwait on this no. 965-99864970

Review : Make Up For Ever Mascaras & Make Up For Ever SENS’EYES


Hi beauties,

Had been using the Makeup forever mascaras which I got back so thought this will be the right time to give my opinion about them …. No doubt the mascaras are good quality, very black formula, non clumpy formula and have divergent brushes. What I liked most these are very easily removed.. no hassle any good makeup remover will work with them, I had been using the Makeup Forever Sens’Eyes  which is just amazing no irritation or loosing lashes very delicate on eyes but does it job well!

extra  Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagant mascara has a conical shape & natural fiber bristles..the shape makes the mascara reach the lashes easily, though I found this a bit difficult on lower lashes than figured out a way how not to smudge all  the mascara on my under eye lolz…… So just wiping the extra mascara from the tip and used the tip of the brush on the lower lashes rather than the whole brush… the brush went through the lashes and coated them evenly without smudging on my lower eye, this made it lot easier as the front bristles are short. Overall a good mascara gives length noticed it has fibers which helped in lengthening and volume specially to the root area making them look thick.

smoky-lashMakeup Forever aqua smoky lash Mascara has a densely packed bristle very easy to work with brush. Though it gives good length and volume to the lashes but it flakes a bit after  some hours……maybe its me but it flaked which I hate in my mascara!


Makeup Forever Smoky Stretch Mascara this is my favorite among these as it has thin long conical shaped brush which makes the mascara reach the lashes easily. Holds the curl well, has fiber formula so gives a false lash effect which means it lengthens, thickens and adds full volume to lashes…love it ❤

Didn’t try the lashes yet but will be perfect for any dress up party 😉 will update.

Hope you find this helpful….have you tried any of these?

Review : Labello Fruity Shine Watermelon


Hi beauties,

   Got this New Labello in watermelon which is the new addition to the Labello fruity shine lip balms…perfect timing as the cold brought some dry lips with it…Very moisturizing with hint of pink color and a yummy fresh cut watermelon scent which brings some refreshing summer vibe in this winter….I hope my daughter doesn’t try to bite it 😉

It says,” Endless moisture for your lips and sheer yet brilliant colour that works day and night! The innovative formula with Hydra IQ which attracts & binds water to the skin along watermelon aroma.Fruity Shine Watermelon is the new, exotic way to love your lips: with colored pigments that give long-lasting moisture and watermelon aroma for soft, smooth and endlessly kissable lips.Labello Fruity Shine Watermelon gives a touch of delicate color and prettifies your lips with a soft shine.”

closecollageI am already a big fan of Labello lip balms always a savior as here the weather in summer is also very dry and my lips are the first part to feel the dryness so I make it sure to carry one in my handbag before leaving the house as it not only moisturize & softens the lips but also protects it against drying …and they smell so yumm. My favorites are the Vitamin Shake (smells like raspberries with a milky coraly tint)  & strawberry (gives red tint) …this will be a new addition the favorites!

 Available at Cooperative societies and pharmacies in Kuwait.

Review : Urban Decay Naked on the Run Palette



Hi beauties,

New year, new start and some new beauty buys 😉 (secretly wishing that makeup keeps raining on me the whole year..guilty pleasures) …Yes to give this year a beautiful start, it would not be better than the Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette I was so eyeing on it since it was launched  and waiting to be available here in Kuwait love love Urban Decay whatever it does ❤ …. you can read more about it  Here


Apart from the hillarious description for the palette (You never know when (or where) you’ll have the urge to get Naked) I don’t know who came up with this …lolz… the palette comes in a gorgeous rose gold packaging with a printed lid which reminds me of camouflage  (is it me only :P) which is a unique character by itself also….. The palette is the size of a hand… not so heavy but cant say also not very light though it has a large mirror. The palette contains six eye shadows(one large), a bronzer, a blush, a travel size mascara ,a full size lip gloss and  an eyepencil….what can I ask more, just complete… maybe an eyeshadow brush!!!

Very travel friendly as it has all that I can use to have polished day to night look…..perfect compilation I must say!!! Now I think this can help me in travelling a bit lighter on makeup,  as it has most of the essentials I need.





Just loving the pigmentation of the eye shadows velvety texture, well payoff of the color,amazing staying power (even without a primer) and amazing blendability.It has deep, light,  shimmery, glittery  and  perfect mattes…a eyeshadow for every mood.The duo of bronzer and blush are an icing on the cake!

UD Bronzer-matte warm bronzer… light but buildable .

UD Blush– a cool pink blush with satiny finish…its a very doll pink blush reminds me of Barbie 😉

UD  Sesso Lipgloss – a  peachy pink with a golden sheen lipgloss. Non sticky and very pretty … a full pouty look to the lips.

Stag eyepencil- a dark brown color eye pencil. Easy gliding, pigmented & sets for hours.

UD Perversion Mascara- Fluffy bristles, very black …gives full looking lashes in few strokes.

From left to right eyeshadows,

Dive – a gorgeous rose gold color not sparkly but adds a sheen to the eyelids…. Super gorgeous!!!!

Fix – a matte medium brown eyeshadow

Resist–  a taupy eye shadow with a golden metallic sheen

Dare– a matte medium to dark warm brown eye shadow…best mattes.

Stun– a coffee brown eyshadow with golden undertones…glittery, chunky and sparkly eyeshadow…ahh sold on this so so gorgeous ❤

5050-a soft light satiny softly peachy more beige eye shadow which is larger than the usual eye shadows….I think it can also be used a highlighter.

Not going to bore you with swatches as  the internet is already flooded with these..very true as in the pallete, still  if you want you can check these swatches below from




Just yesterday did a look using this palette, mixed eye shadow Dive with 5050 on the middle of the lid, lightly contouring the sides of the eyes with Dare…so loved the combo. Used the 5050 on the inner corner of the eyes and  underlined the eyes with Stag, as the gloss is quite sheer so applied it over Maybelline intense pink 140 lipstick.





Overall , a perfect travel palette… so definitely a must have!

Available at Sephora at Avenues mall & Gate mall for 23 KD.
