Character Cosmetics blush

September 20, 2015 Mayas Makeuplife 19 Comments

Hello beauties,Today I am here with a new review. I am talking about a blush from Character cosmetics which is a brand we easily find in U.A.E.

Character-Cosmetics has made an enormous presence in professional makeup art industry and is loved by makeup artists in the Europe as well as Middle East.

My review:
I bought one blush from character cosmetics while shopping in a mall,you can find Character kiosks in many malls in uae. This blush is available in ten shades, I wanted to buy a pink matte blush and I thought to try this blush ,I chose the color but I think the sales person gave me a darker pink shade by mistake which I failed to notice as I was very busy selecting products for my friend also, any ways I have never worn such a bright pink blush before so I was kind of disappointed.
The blush has a round black packaging which is quite sturdy.This blush has almost matte formula and it comes with a small brush and mirror in the below compartment,the size of this blush is quite big and it is intensely pigmented, i just lightly swipe my brush to pick up some product ,if applied heavy it will look clown-like for sure. The staying power of this blush is amazing. I swatched some colored eyeliner pencils from this brand and the pigmentation and longevity is excellent. Overall its a nice blush , stays on the face for many hours, I use it as eyeshadow also and I ll try a lighter shade from this line next time.
price and availabilty:
Price is 40 dhs, available at character counters in U.a.e.


  • sturdy packaging
  • big size
  • matte finish
  • high color pay off
  • great staying power
  • blend able 
  • comes with a mirror


  • brush is average
  • a little overpriced

Rimmel Lip balm in Keep Calm and Rock

September 02, 2015 Mayas Makeuplife 21 Comments

Hi dears,
Today I am sharing my views on Rimmel lip balm. This keep calm lip balm range is really cute, it comes in different colors and kind of looks like baby lips lip balm.

The packaging:
The packaging is very colorful and the cap stays in place ,so you can carry it around in your bag.

What they say:
Enriched formula with moisturizing oils that calm, soften and protect lips for hours
 Instantly increases lip moisture by 22%*

My Thoughts:
Rimmel keep calm lip balm is available in 5 shades, clear, pink blush,berry blush, rose blush and violet blush. I chose berry blush because its a prominent pink shade and I really like this kind of pinks. Rimmel keep calm and rock lip balm is not only a treat for eyes because of its funky colorful design but its really good too. I have very dry lips and I always keep one lip balm in my bag and one under my pillow and I apply lip balm on my lips like crazy to be honest. So running out of lip balm is a nightmare for me. I usually buy Nivea and Labello lip balms but now I really liked this one by Rimmel.This lip balm is a beautiful pink shade and if you built it up,it almost looks like a lipstick, I love how moisturizing this lip balm is and its non sticky and has very nice berry smell which is really pleasing.It keeps my dry lips soft and hydrated though i have to reapply often. I love this product so much overall and I'll definitely repurchase this. It is very similar maybeline baby lips and you will like it if you are a fan of baby lips.

I 'll give this lip balm 4.5/5

  • Cute packaging
  • very affordable
  • keeps lips well hydrated
  • easy to carry around
  • can be worn like a lipgloss/ lipstick
  • smells really nice
