beauty alert!



thanks Viva! after almost six months of waiting for my prize i finally got it about a month ago!... tho' the goody bag is missing a lot of other items, i am still so greatful cos i got to try these pricey beauty products...and here's my review *wink*


1) Kérastase Nutritive Bain Oleo Relax Shampoo 250ml (approx price US$ 27) ****
- great shamppo to tame dry and frizzy hair, i don't need to use conditioner after it...


2) Wellaflex Mousse
- i use it before blowdrying and straightening my hair, followed with a serum...there's only one thing i can say, i swear by wella products!

3) Maria Dowling Mini m Hair Straightener (Dhs 380 available in Harvey Nichols) ***
i'm still loyal to braun satin ion straightener...but i'll still be using it since its easy to use on short hair and handy when travelling...visit her website www.mariadowling.com they do amazing colours, highlights and cuts...i went there for colour and cut once and i came out of their spa like salon feeling and looking a million dollar...you gotta book in advance tho' as their waiting list takes weeks if not months!

4) Strivectin SD 2 fl. oz. (Dhs 408) ***
this isn't the first time i'm using this product as i bought one before to try on (i actually got a 6 fl.oz. which was around Dhs600) i kind of impulsively bought it after reading great reviews on how effective this stretch mark cream is on minimizing wrinkles... and so i used it on my mom :D but i didn't really use it continuously so now im keeping this little tube close to me all the time and try to use it 3x a day on stretch marks!!!

5) La Prairie Creme Cellular Radiance Moisturiser 50ml (US$ 570) ***
another anti-ageing cream...been using this for a month now, it feels greasy...too soon to tell if its working on my wrinkles :D - but i love the packaging and the cute silver spoon that came along with it! if i had to buy an anti-ageing cream i would still prefer Givenchy Le Soin Noir - i had a sample when i bought Givenchy Absolutely Irresistable perf and i loved how it felt on my skin...

6) Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion ****
- my face drinks it in! and takes my skin from tight and dry to soft and supple...not greasy at all, i just love the way it feels on my (combi) skin :)


7) Natura Bisse Diamond Drops 1.7 oz (US$ 315) ****
- another anti-ageing staple...i use it after #6 just before applying my make-up....

8) Benefit Play Stick Foundation (Dhs 151) ****
- great coverage and good concealer


9) Givenchy Rouge Interdit Shine Lipstick in (Dhs 110) ***
- not really a big fan of lipsticks but it works for me :D



10) CH by Carolina Herrera **
- i love the packaging, not really crazy bout the scent...doesnt really agree on my skin
- notes: bergamot, orange, pomelo, melon, rose, jasmine, praline and cinnamon over woods



11) Gucci by Gucci ****
- im starting to love this perf...took me awhile to get used to the scent...very strong and very feminine ;-)

The Killers _live! @ Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi_

its been a week since the concert, and i feel like im still on a high from brandon flowers ♥ 

they were already on stage singing 'human' when we arrived... we had to squeeze our way right up to the front of the stage... or to the side at least... well we did have an excellent view, we were so close, only three rows back... and down to one when the concert is almost over... i only have few clips of them playing... i didnt get to record 'mr. brightside' and 'smile like you mean it' the songs that made me like them when i first saw them on the o.c. =)

2. Somebody Told Me 
3. For Reasons Unknown 
4. Bones 
5. The World We Live In

10. Smile Like You Mean It 
11. Spaceman 
12. A Dustland Fairytale (gradually breaking off to a snippet of "Can't Help Falling in Love")
