Marc Jacobs Beauty Launches at Sephora Kuwait

Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs Announced the launch of his namesake cosmetics line, Marc Jacobs Beauty. The brand debuts with a whole 120 products available exclusively at Sephora Kuwait, Qatar, and UAE. I was invited to visit their store at The Avenues and enjoy the testing the new line, and oh boy! I spend about over an hour just playing around! The variety, the textures, and the colors are uh-mazing! I loved the shadows, the mascara, and the pen eyeliner. And although I’m not a foundation kinda girl, their foundations felt so soft and velvety, and most importantly, light! It’s as light as a BB cream, but with a foundation coverage, which I found extremely handy.

What caught my attention the most was the fact that the brand is launching a complete line, not just a few items here and there like we usually see in most of the fashion brands that . The only thing missing could be the makeup remover and the toner. Apart from that, you could have your complete beauty routine out of Marc Jacobs Beauty, including the brushes! which I think is very impressive.

Pass by your nearest Sephora, pay their stand a visit, I’m absolutely sure you’ll love it! Oh and you could visit Marc Jacobs Beauty website too, it’s very interesting and visual, which I loved!

Sephora's Revolutionary Upside Down Mascara

Smart, life-changing and innovative products that are transforming cosmetics made in Sephora are starting a revolution! With innovation at all levels, the Sephora Girl’s Lab is moving forward at full speed!

Sephora's Revolutionary Upside Down Mascara002

Sephora introduces the new Upside Down Mascara, an exciting mascara that leaves no lash behind. With a revolutionary application technique, this multi application 360° mascara comes with 3 make up results – volumizing, curving and lengthening; the perfect formula for beautiful lashes. With its revolutionary dual brush innovation, the Upside Down Mascara ensures that your lashes are coated from the root, and covered from top to bottom.

How to use your mascara in 3 unique ways:

sephora-mascara

Open Dual Brush: For 360º volume, place the eyelashes between the two brushes, and pinch gently, stretching out toward the top in order to cover both sides of the eyelashes. The flat brush must be below the eyelashes and the round brush, above.
Closed Dual Brush: For optimal length and curve, cover the eyelashes using the dual brush in the closed position, as with a classic mascara.
One Brush Only: For perfectly defined lower lashes, use the flat brush in a “zigzag” movement from the root to the tips.

Sephora’s Upside Down Mascara is available at all Sephora stores at the following prices: AED 105, QAR 109, KWD 8.5, SAR 112, BHD 11.2

Product Review: Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion

NBD_12820_In-ShowerLotion_EA

I’ve been using this product for less than a week, but I couldn’t hold it any longer not to share! Nivea’s new in-shower Body Lotion. This goes on as a last product, after your regular foaming shower gel, shaving foam, scrub, or whatever else you use in your shower, as it doesn’t contain any cleansing properties. It’s easy-to-use and leaves my skin feeling fresh, moist, and most importantly, not sticky. After you’ve used all your shower products, massage the Nivea in-shower body lotion onto your body, then rinse it off! You can dry your self and get dressed immediately, hassle-free! An Uh-Mazing time-saver too!

It’s not completely a substitute for your usual body cream, but this works as a bonus moisturizer if you’re not in the mood for that (Aren’t we all sometimes?). It’s also perfect for the morning-showers, where you can literally jump in the shower and run to work, without having to wake up earlier to apply a moisturizer. Over all, a brilliant product, and very much recommended, specially now that the winter is making our skin more dry. If you love a glowing, younger looking silky skin, or if you have problems with dry skin, this products will work wonders.
