The dual fibers work together to create volume that is unparell to any other mascara. The formula includes Black Pearl pigments that give the mascara an extra 3D effect that boost volume up to 50%.

There’s a Fine Line


This eyeliner is a must have in your makeup bag! After trying several dozens of different pencil, liquid and gel liners, there seems to be no question as to what takes the cake. This multi-award winning formula (Elle, Allure, and In Style magazines) gives easy control but a line that willl literally stay all day. I love this liner, hands down the best gel liner around! ($21 available at Nordstrom, or 102 AED at Bobbi Brown, Dubai Mall or Harvey Nichols)

Get Perfekt Skin


As much as I love to sunbathe, I never thought I would burn–boy was I wrong! After spending close to 5 hours in Thai sun, and using ZERO PROTECTION, my skin thanked me, cordially. It was the first time both my husband and I had burned in our lives. Needless to say, we peeled like bananas. My skin—bloootchy!! I had numerous Moroccan bath, scrubs, etc. and nothing truly made my skin look flawless again.

Luckily for me, Perfekt came to my rescue. This incredibly silky formula makes your skin look even and bronzed. I try stay out of the sun now, but I still use this amazing product. Any night I have an event or wedding to go to, I simply apply this to my arms, legs and decolletege. It also adds the slightest amount of shimmer, which is to-die-for! Now you can have your Perfekt skin! Literally!

(Available at Sephora, $48)

La La Lavender Lips


When celebs like Lady GaGa, Rihanna, and Kim Kardashian all wear a certain something, we have to wonder is this a trend? If you are inquiring about lavender lips, we would say yes! Lavender lips have been seen all over the red carpet, celeb bashes and galas so much that we needed to gush, we are crushing lavender!
