Ideas for "Her" -- Opinionated Girl to the rescue!

The Festive season is upon us and that means one thing: Endless time at the store trying to pick presents for your loved ones! Opinionated Girl to the rescue!

I've been getting a lot of promotions and new releases themed  just for the holidays and today I will make your life easier by selecting my favorites! These will be based on Quality of the product, packaging and price! I will start with a "Her" suggestions, and next week I will post a "Him" post! 

First off we have some of Marc Jacobs newly released beauty line, and boy oh boy do I love all the products! You can read about my wishlist here (in-case you feel like getting me a present ;)). These would make a wonderful gift for women aged 40 years and younger. And the best part is, is that you will be able to mix and match to suit your budget :) - Can be found in Sephora - Dubai Mall 

                                                         

Next we have the Molton Brown limited edition Christmas set. This set screams Festive and Luxurious. This would make a beautiful gift for women aged 30 years and older
                                                                                                     
Now we have some Philosophy products. I love love love Philosophy! I've tried their micro-peel and lip-gloss and now I'm in the process of trying some of their cleansers as per the advice of my blogger friend at www.lacedinleather.com

So I loved the fact that they came up with a 3-in-1 formula (shampoo, bodywash, bubble bath) and they're scented after  festivities themed food. Best part? you can mix and match and its suitable for all ages. - Can be found in most Sephora stores 

Here we have Sephora's new Festive collection, you can check out my Facebook page for their entire collection, but I chose my favorite item to be featured here! Which is their new Makeup Academy Palette! It looks great and has everything with a very good price! - Can be found in all Sephora stores


And last but not least, this gift is also suitable for all ages. And its necklaces from Swarovski's new collection which apparently you can combine together to create a unique look (but I'm featuring my favorite) - This is available in all Swarovski boutiques :)

Santa Jacobs! Here is my Christmas List

Its no surprise that I've been in love with Marc Jacobs from the minute I set my eyes on his Beauty line!

Everything about it just made me fly into lala-land ! The elegance of the packaging! The Simplicity! and my oh my the colors!!

Now I'm going to share with you some of the items that are on the top of my purchase list (Gotta Save Up!)

First and foremost: Their lip-glosses! They give amazing (and extremely rich) color and have the best texture! I got a dark-ish color during the opening, now I'm going for a more nude color!

                                                    
Next we have the Marc Jacobs foundation! Apparently this foundation not only builds up and provides full coverage, but also has anti-aging protection and hydrates the skin with coconut water extracts! Its definitely worth a try!

                                                  

Now on my wishlist I have the Nail polish in ENAMORED! I won't say anything about it, Just look at the color *Sigh*

                                               

Last but not least *Drumroll* POWDERS! Okay, I love love love powders! They are so not messy and easy to apply when you are on the go! Can't wait to try this!

                                          

Mr. Marc Jacobs, you stole my heart with your awesome Beauty line! I LOVE YOU! The beauty line, that is.

All Marc Jacobs beauty line can be found  in Dubai Mall's Sephora!

Till later loves! xx





FOTD! with swatches and everything!

So.. This my first FOTD post! I'm so excited but nervous at the same time to be sharing my pictures so publicly :O

I decided to share with all my lovely ladies what a simple look that is suitable for work and university! I use this look a lot because it takes me about 5 minutes to do which is important when I\m struggling to get out of my bed every morning.


I used the following to create the look:


Make-up forever pro-finish powder- I really like this powder because it doesn't create a cakey look and feels light enough to wear in this heat. It also looks really natural which is suitable for the morning! I got this product based on Huda Kattan's recommendation! I used this for full coverage

Benefit's Benetint- this product needs no introduction! Let's just say that ALL of Benefit's tints are amazing. However, this one is very suitable for the morning because of the light texture and intensity of the color. I used this on the apple of my cheeks

L'oreal Color Riche LeKhol- This is a very basic Kohl pencil that is easily applied. I absolutely love the color (108 - Portofino Blue). I applied this in a thin line on the upper and lower lids

Benefit's High Brow- Another one of Huda Kattan's recommendations! I purchased this product recently and I loooooooooooove it ! It gives a wonderful shape for your eyebrows, and sometimes I use it to highlight the inner corner of my eyes (as a night look)

Marc Jacobs Beauty lipgloss- I was lucky enough to go to the beauty line launch a week ago, and let me tell you, I am HOOKED! Amazing packaging, amazing product, amazing everything! I got this lipgloss in the Goody bags they distributed and so I decided to give it a try and VOILA! It feels and looks great and its full of color,so much so that you don't have to wear lipstick! Can't wait for the official store launch to buy different colors! Keep your eyes glued to Sephora's page for the exact date and location


Swatches Time!
