Terrified of hairspray? Well, you may not be the only one. I noticed that anytime I pull a can of hairspray out of my makeup kit, people give the I-will pop-you-if-you-think-you’re-getting-near-me-with-that-can look. While, I understand their pain, I simply cannot avoid using hairspray at times. Thank God there was a genius at L’Oreal who invented this amazing product! Elnett Satin Hairspray is by far the most revolutionary hairspray that gives you extra hold, but brushes out like it was never there. This product has been featured in European versions of Elle, Vogue, and other beauty and fashion magazines and has been the premier choice of fashion weeks all over Europe. Even long before it was released in the states, it was paraded in almost beauty bible–yes, it was torture waiting for it to hit stateside! Available at almost every pharmacy and grocery store in Dubai and now available at Target in the states, everyone can get their high fashion without the stiffness of most hairsprays! Definitely a must have!!
Dior has released their new mascara DiorShow Extase. The brush resembles the“tiered” couture dresses from the House of Dior . This mascara seriously adds volume. 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%. The patented SR38 helps promote healthier fuller lashes and also reconstruct damaged lashes. A mascara that gives you full gorgeous lashes that promotes lash health? Wow, sounds too good to be true!
Available at Sephora or department stores where Dior is sold ($28 or 155 AED).

John Galliano is known to push the fashion envelope and boy did he! The s/s 2010 runway show at Paris Fashion Week was very, well, Galliano. Large GaGa-like bows, with fur covered vest, skirts, and jackets dominated the runway. The over-embellished-everything, was just what we expected from Galliano and simply fabulous!
