Flawless Fall with Marc Jacobs Beauty

Marc Jacobs Beauty redefines flawless for fall 2016 with his brand new creation: the Air Blush draping palette. It’s all about colors this fall, with 5 new Air blush palettes, 25 shades of the best-selling Highliner Gel Crayon, and 5 new colors of the Fineliner Ultra Skinny Gel Crayon.

Air Blush Soft Glow Duo

Dancefloor flush, foolproof blush,

Late night radiance. Light as air

(175 AED/ 175 QAR/ 175 SAR/ 14 KWD/ 19.5 BHD)

Dance dance revolution. Marc Jacobs Beauty ignites the next big trend in beauty with the launch of the new Air Blush Soft Glow Duo. Recreating the flush seen on late evenings on crowded dance floors, air blush drapes your cheeks in weightless color with a naturally luminous, dancefloor-inspired, foolproof flush that lasts up to 24 hours.

Introducing a new — weightless – ingredient. Japanese “air powder” pigments are at the core of this innovative new formula. The ultra-lightweight powder is nearly undetectable to the touch and melds naturally with the skin, creating the perfect blush. Air powder pigments are deposited into the compact through a soufflage process, which gives the powder saturated color and creaminess for a skin-like glow. It also ensures that the striking striped design, comprised of two complementing shades and inspired by a gown from his spring 2013 collection, extends beyond the surface and through the entire blush for even color with every stroke. The two shades in each palette merge fluidly for endless color combinations and real-life radiance. Layer and blend as much as your heart desires to create your perfect couture color.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Air Blush Soft Glow Duo will be available in October 2016 at Sephora.

Highliner Gel Eye Crayon

(100 AED/ 100 QAR/ 100 SAR/ 7.5 KWD/ 10.5 BHD)

Marc’s exclusive, richly pigmented gel eye crayon gets a fresh look for fall with 25 shades of extreme-wear, waterproof color. This breakthrough formula glides on smoothly for a flawless, precise application, then sets in place for all-day wear. The built-in sharpener helps mold product into a perfect point for an instantly sharp look.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon is now available at Sephora.

Fineliner Ultra-Skinny Gel Eye Crayon

 (110 AED/ 110 QAR/ 110 SAR/ 8.3 KWD/ 11.6 BHD)

Marc’s ultra-skinny liner provides wide-eyed definition by giving the illusion of more voluminous lashes. Simply glide and apply the transformative, waterproof gel formula for flawless, precise lines that set in place for all day wear. Available in seven shades, they are perfect for lining the waterline, darkening the lash line, or creating a fine cat-eye for day.

ABOUT MARC JACOBS BEAUTY

As with his fashion, Marc’s rule-breaking creativity is at the heart of his makeup vision. For marc, getting it right involves a little bit of wrong. He inspires you to push the boundaries and create your own style. So indulge in his exquisite textures, take liberties with his provocative shades, and play with his daring designs.

Marc redefines beauty as imperfectly perfect. “I see beauty in many things and I am attracted to all sorts of imperfections, from style, to confidence or experimentation. It’s unexpected and surprises you.”  Inspiration stems from the spirit of “the girl” and her makeup ritual. “I think the idea of transforming into this person you want to be, is a lot of fun…it’s the idea of a young woman enjoying creating her look, getting ready for her night out, or her night after her night out.”

History of the original Kajal

The KAJAL pencil has been traditionally used in India, Egypt and in the Middle East for decades now, and is one of the oldest types of eyeliners to be used. It was traditionally made from heavy metals, (lead sulphate) however due to the ill-effects of heavy metals, modern kohl pencils are made from ingredients that are non-toxic such as resins, plant extracts and soot. 

The Kajal pencil was also used in North Africa by people of all ages and genders, as it was believed to protect the eyes from infection and desert sun, while also moisturizing and protecting the skin around the eyes. Egyptians, who are believed to have pioneered in making the Kajal, made many other colors except black such as malachite and lapus lazuli.

perfume-collage

Hi beauties,

Sharing some of my summer favorite perfumes, hope you all enjoy it too.

Chopard Oud Malaki : A  royal treat emoji… Chopard Oud Malaki  which opens with luminous and aromatic top notes. The sunny burst of grapefruit, the cleanliness of lavender and the slight herbal bitterness of artemisia contrast with the addictive smoothness of heart notes, a warm accord of tobacco and spices with leather undertones. To enhance the most elegant facets of this oud accord, its deep, liqueur-like sensuousness is conjured with a vibrant accord of dark woods and suave ambergris. These upscale ingredients are reflected by the rich amber colour of the juice.A very long lasting perfume ….a perfect blend of warm & deep notes .

Katy Perry Spring Reign Perfume A new fragrance for Spring 2015, named Spring Reign. The flacon design follows previous editions, Killer Queen, Killer Queen Oh So Sheer and Royal Revolution, but this time it is available in a pale pink color with metallic pink stopper. The composition is floral-oriental, delicate and fresh, and conveys the feeling of the rebirth of spring and blooming flowers in a lush garden, when you can feel the scents of pink freesia and black currant flowers. Spring in bloom is described in gentle petals of violets which provide a romantic and slightly powdery shade to spring opening. The heart of the composition blooms with May rose flowers, creating a rich bouquet along with gardenia, while Artemisia oil contributes to fruity passions and the fullness of the flowers. The base is created of benzoin, cashmeran and cedarwood oil, leaving a soft, resin-vanilla shade on the skin.…best for everyday.

Chopard Happy Spirit Perfume :One more from Chopard spicy pink pepper, which leads to the floral heart of jasmine and orange blossom. The rich and warm base includes notes of honey and tonka bean…a very feminine and beautiful perfume.

Beyonce Rise Sheer Perfume : A Limited Edition and a new edition of the fragrance Rise from 2014. The concept that lies behind the creation of Rise is inspired by “female empowerment and finding the inner strength that makes women so beautiful.”Rise Sheer is a fresher version that opens with Italian bergamot, Sicilian lemon and iced basil sorbet. Golden symphony orchid signs the heart of the fragrance, along with flowers of white peony and jasmine. Blonde woods, sheer musk and white amber end the composition….again best for everyday lasts for 3 to 4 hours fresh feminine light perfume.

ETERNITY summer Calvin Klein perfume: A beautiful summery scent lasts for 4 hours light and fresh….which say,” It embodies the sensation of losing yourself in the beauty of the horizon where the expansive and endless sea flows into the colorful summer sky.The fragrance begins with the freshness of green pear brightened with a splash of dewy watermelon and juicy mandarin.  the heart blossoms with lush peony petals, sweet blue hyacinth and vibrant water lily, then dries down to the seductive warmth of creamy sandalwood, soft white amber, and sensual musk.”A watery floral kind of fragrance with top notes of  green pear, mandarin, watermelon. Mid notes of  pink peony, water lily, blue hyacinth and dry notes of white amber, musk, sandalwood

Nuxe Prodigieux Le Parfum : A tropical kind of perfume…a holiday mood type.Top notes are orange blossom, bergamot, mandarin orange and orange; middle notes are rose, magnolia and gardenia; base notes are vanilla, coconut milk and pebbles.

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.
