urban therapy

twisted sista (30 second curl spray)

urban therapy- twisted sista
30 second curl spray 150ml

if you are like me..enjoying your curls and rocking it..then you need to try this one, I found it in waitrose Dubai mall while I was checking the hair section , it caught my eye because of the packaging and the cute girl with curly hair on the label..I got the spray and the serum..the serum was nice but this spray is amazing,..I’ve tried other curl reviver hair sprays but all it did was making my hair crunchy and wet looking..this one does what it promise on the label (revitalizes curls instantly) yes I approve..i became a stable in my hair routine and I’ll definitely has a strong melon scent but I like it, very “tropicaly”
it's drug store product so the price is was about 25 Dhs and it will last you for a good time if you have a shoulder hair length like me, you only need few spritzes..”i even dilute some of it with water and put it in another spray bottle for beach wave effect or not too tight curls”

my curly hair- 3rd day

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural


a face powder, a mineral foundation, good coverage, natural smooth finish “not powdery or cacky”

when I heard about this product on from many beauty bloggers, I decided to go and get shade is Medium..I feel it's a bit darker than my skin but when I put it on blend it it looks perfect..

it had a very good coverage, you can use it on its own as a foundation..i have oily skin and I’m very please with it because it sets my foundation, I can used it to touch up during the day and it doesn't give me the powdery look..i use a kabuki brush for application..the brushes I enjoy are the Samantha Chapman Real Techniques kabuki brush and the elf kabuki brush..

I feel that this product is a must in your makeup collection..i always recommended to my friends and they love it after they try it..

Check out Lisasz09 video review

it's very much loved as you can see :)

Product Review

Alba Botanica

natural Hawaiian exfoliating body wash

rejuvenating papaya mango to renew and smooth


I love most of Alba botanica products and my favorite facial serum if the vitamin c facial serum especially the new formula ..but....unfortunately I wasn't impressed with this body fact I actually hate it and will not repurchase it for sure..i bought two because my drugstore had an offer on the alba range and when I smelled it I liked it and wanted to try it because I was looking for a new body scrub..

let me say that going through the second tube was not fun at all...i was so glad when it was finished..i just don't like throwing stuff away so I always try to put it to use somehow..

now I’ll give you my reasons for disliking it so much..1st it didn't exfoliate my body because the exfoliating beads were almost not there. I couldn't feel them doing anything except..2nd it made me feel itchy.. 3rd even though it smelled good in the store in the shower it was smelling like an orange that went rancid..4th it was not expensive but it wasn't cheap either so I was expecting not to suck! :(

that's my review and my experience that was not very pleasant..

the pros of this product are...

-cruelty free( no animal testing )

-no parabens

-no artificial colors

-no sodium lauryl/ laureth sulfate or sodium methyl sulfate

- package looks fun, summery and exotic

price is 44 AED
you can find Alba botanica product in life pharmacy Dubai ..they usually have an offer or a promotion going on.

Essence Cosmetics Review

essence Review

essence cosmetics

one of my favorite drug store brand, made in Germany, cruelty free, very affordable and budget friendly

unfortunately currently they do not have an online store. but
you can find essence products in many European countries, for example Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Ireland, Spain, Croatia, Italy, Switzerland, Austria also i found it in south Africa and united Arab emirates at few selected can now also shop online from ultah online store, you will not find everything but they do curry a wide variety

essence do not test on animal..
on their web page they "assure that cosnova neither conducts testing on animals, nor commissions it to any third parties – not in Germany or anywhere else in the world. we strongly disapprove of testing on animals for cosmetics products."

essence lipsticks
from left to right..Red Carpet, All About Cupcake, Sparkling Miracle, Fairytale, Prom Night

I love extreme Mascara..I love it, ultra black and extreme volume

I have a collection of their products from blushes to lip gloss to mascaras and many other stuff as they have a full range of make up the line is still expanding and everyday you find new blogger talking about essence and its all true and honest opinion because essence do not send free sample and products to bloggers for reviews which is what they wrote on their page
I've been using their products for 2 years now and I love most of what I've tried..

some of the hits

-I love extreme Mascara
gives me volume, make my eyelashes full and thick I get many compliments every time I wear it
-lipsticks (red carpet-fairytale-all about cupcake-sparkling miracle)
very moisturizing, soft sheer colors, buildable, glossy finish
-cover stick (matt beige)
blendable, creamy medium to full coverage
-blush (10 adorable- 20 fashionista)
silky, look natural
-brushes (smokey eye brush- gel eyeliner brush)
soft, doesn't shed,

Few of the the misses

- lip gloss XXXL shine (13 Rock On)
odd color, you can feel the glitter on the lips
-eyeshadow sparkling effect (03 starlight)
the shimmer is only a spray finish on top of the eyeshadow, the color itself is a light grey, lots fallout
- l love stage eyeshadow base
doesn't prevent creasing or enhance your eyeshadow color

Product Review..Viva Glam Nicki 2

Viva Glam Nicki 2

I always like to drop by Mac counter and check stuff out, new collection, old's always fun for me to be surrounded by so much make up not to mention the brushes, oh I love brushes..a good blending brush is the secret to an amazing sultry smokey eye but wait!....back to our main subject Viva glam nicki 2 lipstick...
I had to grab this one..the color is so unique, described by Mac website as " a vivid pastel lavender pink, with a subtle sexiness and satin finish that's so Nicki. Every cent of the selling price goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Limited-edition."

well getting this lipstick will not just make you a total diva but will be a contribution to humanity and good well..just looking at it makes me feel happy..I know that it's not an easy color to pull off but u can play with it using different shades of lip is definitely a color that shout confidence and fashion sense..

Embrace the Nicki inside you, go and grab it..
