At the end of every month , I will share with you some products that I absolutely loved and ones that I could easily live without! Here are my October "Hot or Not" selections!
Anastasia of Beverly Hills Master Palette by Mario
Mario Dedivanovic teamed up with Anastasia of Beverly Hills to create this luxurious, silky smooth eyeshadow palette consisting of twelve shades that work for every skin tone. He added a blue and green toned shadow to create warmth to his signature bronze smoky eye.
Not sure who Mario is? Mario Dedivanovic is a first generation American who is the very definition of the American dream. At the age of 17, he began working in a Sephora branch in New York City in the fragrances department and shortly afterwards discovered his passion for makeup. Today, he is one of the most famous makeup artists worldwide. His clients include Chrissy Teigen, Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner. He has over 2.5 million followers on Instagram and hosts makeup classes around the world. (262aed, Sephora)

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick
I usually like to read up on a liquid lipstick before I purchase it. I find liquid lipsticks to be completely hit or miss. They either stay on and give me no trouble or they are a bleeding, dry, crusty (ew!) mess that leaves me feeling extremely self-conscious.
Unfortunately, the Too Faced liquid lipsticks fell into the latter category for me. After applying, my lips felt so dry they actually hurt. Half an hour later the lipstick was streaky on my lips. Within two hours, my lips looked awful. The lipstick was nearly gone, my lips looked dehydrated and dried out. Disaster! I will admit that it was an impulse buy...and one I absolutely regret!

Note to self: next time, read reviews first!
Dove Deeply Nourishing Body Wash
I always bought expensive body washes until I realized that my dirhams were just washing down the drain (literally!). What a waste! Nowadays, I am always on the lookout for a budget friendly body wash that moisturizes my dry skin.
Great news, I finally found one! The Dove deeply nourshing body wash does exactly what I want. It is an incredibly moisturizing body wash that has a nice, light scent. The price perfectly fits within my budget and lasts me about one month. (18.25 aed, Waitrose)
L'Oreal Makeup Remover Eyes & Lips
You know the saying buy cheap, pay twice? Unfortunately, it rang true to me with this makeup remover.
I am on constantly on the hunt for a cheaper alternative to my Clarins eye makeup remover. I decided to buy the L'Oreal Makeup Remover for Eyes & Lips but my sensitive eyes burned like the desert sun when I used this product. I still use it to remove my liquid lipstick at the end of the day but I will not be purchasing this product again. (30aed, Waitrose)
