Well this was a super exciting project I’ve been working on for the past couple of weeks and I am so very pleased to be sharing my take on Mikyajy‘s make-up range with you all!
For those of who not quite familiar with the brand, Mikyajy is one of the fastest growing cosmetic brands in the Middle East. Launched in 1999, they have almost 200 stores across Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait and Libya. Their products are trendy, friendly & young which has made them one of the leading cosmetic brands in the Middle East. Their huge array of quality European products meets all the needs of the local beauty savvy audience. Mikyajy products range from color cosmetics to fragrances and make up tools.
I first came across the brand when guest blogging for Arabia.com during Ramadan. I was looking to feature more of the local brands and ended up working with their team to feature some of their new items.
When Mikyajy contacted me a while ago offering me the opportunity to try their make-up products for myself I jumped at the chance and proceeded to choose 3 items to create a few looks with!
Hours of browsing through their (really funky-looking) website and I selected the following:
Groovy Compacts ‘Jungle Fever’ Palette (AED59 – see here)
This cool multi-stacked compact palette is filled with a range of bright & lively shades for the lips, eyes and cheeks. The pigmentation is pretty good, I particularly like the 2 blushers and eye shadows! When I first looked at the green and coral shades I wasn’t sure how I would use them BUT I swiped these under my eyes for a pop of colour and it just looked fab! I will get a lot more use out the brown/earthy shadows for sure.
The lip colours are really nice too! The texture of these is super creamy and the pigmentation excellent. All are glossy finish but the colour options are quire versatile which means you can use the palette for any occasions/time of the day!
With a set of mini brushes included, it really does make for the perfect travelling companion.
I would recommend this palette for perhaps the younger crowd as the bright shades are probably best kept for evenings out or parties….
22K Amazing Volume & Define Mascara (AED77 – see here)
This is definitely my favorite product of the bunch! You can choose between two settings on this innovative mascara, which lets you opt for definition or volume, or combine both as I usually do (I do like a more dramatic eye look!)
The ‘volume’ setting is packed with drama, coating the lashes with mascara from root to tip. The ‘define’ setting is a softer, more natural finish for lighter lashes. Perfect for a daytime look! The long wand is very handy and both brushes are really soft and easy to use.
All in all, a very good budget mascara! And a bonus point for the ‘luxurious’ packaging!
Groovy Compacts ‘Candy Lips’ Palette (AED35 – see here)
This compact contains six lip glosses in shades of pink and coral. It comes with a little brush which makes application on the go super easy. The packaging is really cute & girlie and it just looks so pretty on my desk! It is super sleek and easy to carry around. The colours are great too, some are more shimmery than others so again, a very versatile palette which will take you (and your pout!) from work to drinks with your friends or a date!
I really am impressed with Mikyajy‘s products. The brand is just a super fun, yet affordable one and really just good quality make-up. I would have loved to have know about these when I was younger and on a tighter budget!
I shall be sure to check out their store at The Dubai Mall or Mall of the Emirates and try out more of their stuff!
Have you tried any products from Mikyajy brands? What do you think?
