#CrazyGlamCrush: Now in the UAE: Violent Eyes™, temporary eye appliqués from Violent Lips®

Gals, check out this crazy yet OMG new product which has just launched in the UAE called Violent Eyes™ by Violent Lips®!
Have you ever wanted to recreate the perfect cat eye, like your favourite celebrity and wanted it to be flawless every time?

Thanks to Violent Eyes™ you can create the precise length, width and solid color to have fabulous eyes like your favorite style icon, such as Dita Von Tesse (small cat eye) Marilyn Monroe (small cat eye) Kim Kardashian (medium cat eye) and Amy Winehouse (large cat eye).


The first of its kind, Violent Eyes™ is the only transfer product on the market today.
The customize appliqués fit all eye shapes and sizes, and boast a smudge-proof formula that lasts up to 16 hours. No brushes or shadow pallets needed, Violent Eyes™ are compact, travel-friendly and take the guesswork out of eye makeup colors and time-consuming blending.

Colors & Styles: Each Violent Eyes™ package includes 8 sets of temporary eye appliqués and features four eyeliner styles. From cat eyes to a full lid design, makeup aficionados can choose among glitter shades of Bronze, Jet Black, Pink, Sapphire Blue, Silver, Violet and Rainbow.


How to apply: 

  1. Make sure your eyes are dry of any oils or moisturisers. Remove desired shape from the stencil. You can apply over eye primers and powdered makeup.
  2. Measure the appliqué to your eye, starting from the outside corner in.
  3. If needed, cut the inner eye corner of the appliqué to your eye width measurement according to the guidelines.
  4. Peel the plastic film off of the appliqué.
  5. Slightly wet the paper backing of the appliqué with a moist cotton tip to make the appliqué flexible.
  6. Handle the corners of the appliqué carefully and apply the sticky side of the appliqué to your eyelid, placing it as close as you can to your lash line. Continue to soak the paper backing in water with the tip until the paper backing slides off easily – approximately 30 seconds.
  7. Seal and smooth the appliqué with the wet cotton tip. Repeat steps for the other eye.

They last up to 16 hours which make them perfect for this climate as they are smudge proof (just in time for summer… Hello humidity!).

Price: AED55.00 for a set of 8.

#TreatmentCrush: Elemis “Visible Brilliance” Facial at Cleopatra’s Spa and Wellness

OMG! Did I not just fall madly in love (more than I already was!) with Elemis?! I think so..

I tried out the fabulous Elemis Visible Brilliance Facial in the stunning surroundings of the Cleopatra’s Spa and Well at Wafi. 75 mins of PURE BLISS and fully refreshed skin were the results!

I came in feeling AND looking  very tired after a long & stressful week at work and was very much looking forward to a little relaxing me-time. I did hope my skin would look rejuvenated. What I wasn’t expecting is how GOOD, smooth, refreshed & glowing it would actually look! I had to stare at the mirror for a good minute to fully take it all in I was so amazed.

After a skin care consultation where my therapist proceeded to ask about my beauty routine, what products I use on a regular basis and what my main skin concerns were, she thought the Visible Brilliance Treatment would be exactly what I needed!

So here is what the Visible Brilliance Treatment includes:

Cleanser – Rehydrating Rosepetal Cleanser

Toner – Rehydrating Ginseng toner

Face Massage – Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules

Scrub – Gentle Rose Exfoliator

Eye Mask – Silk Eye Compress

1st Mask – Amino Peel-Off Mask

2nd Mask – Exotic Cream Moisture Mask

Serum – Visible Brilliance Serum

Eyes Moisturizer – Absolute eye Serum

Face Moisturizer – Pro Collagen Marine Cream (read my review here)

My lovely therapist, Mary Grace also applied the “Daily Redness Relief” cream to really personalize the treatment to my skin which suffer from sensitivities.

A true luxurious experience.

Spa customers can also make sure of the Spa facilities which includes a sauna, steam room, relaxing room (they even have a ‘Dream Room’ which you can rent out for half an hour of pure relaxation!), the Jacuzzi and an intriguing cold plunge pool!

Well here it:

Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser 

The claim: Developed by dermatologists, it contains 100% naturally derived grapefruit extract plus Vitamin C for clear, fresh and healthy looking skin every day.

The crush: I am currently using the Neutrogena Deep Cleanser but I’ve almost finished it so will be sure to start using & review the Grapefruit Facial Cleanser properly very soon 😉

Bioderma ‘Fluide Solaire’ SPF100

The claim: Non-oily freshness effect which is fragrance-free, water-resistant and with high SPF protection; guarantees double protection by combining powerful direct anti-UVA-UVB photoprotectors and the exclusive Cellular Bioprotection patent.

The crush: SPF100 is a little high for my ‘darker’ skin BUT I did try it out a couple of times and loved it’s ‘fresh’ feel! I’ll be using it during my Summer holidays for sure.

Thierry Mugler ‘Alien Essence Absolue

The claim: A mystical and sensual fragrance.  An Eau de Parfum with an intense fragrant trail like a sensory treasure, a fusion of three revelations: Floral, Mystic and finally Amber Vanilla.

The crush: I LOVE LOVE LOVE!! This perfume smells GORGEOUS! Sweet, deep, & all mystical. Will certainly get you noticed! I actually got a few compliments over the weekend…

Vipera Cosmetics ‘Photo Model Make Up’

The claim: Photochromic make up foundation with natural UV filter.  Colour tone adapt for every skin type.  A light liquid foundation that blends seamlessly to give a smooth, refined finish.

The crush: I’ve not tried it yet BUT I do have an event on Monday evening and will make sure to use it then! Will report back to you all ;)!

Bourjois ‘Khol Precision’ Eye Pencil in Vert Foret

The claim: An array of different colour eye pencils.  Kohl precision to highlight your eyes.

The crush: Mine was ‘Vert Foret‘ a darker shade of green which I never would have thought to purchase! I actually used it a couple of times and loved the (very subtle) pop of colour! The texture is good, stayed put all day but removed very easily with my regular eye-make up remover from Nivea so I guess it is now officially part of my ‘make-up bag’!
