Monthly Beauty Buys – April 2017


Alright so, how the hell am I supposed to manage money because on one hand I love saving and on the other hand I am totally obsessed with makeup.

I don’t usually spend on makeup because I don’t wear makeup on a daily basis. I wear it probably 3 or 4 times a month. But I decided to finally buy an eyeshadow palette because I really wanna learn different looks and also because I hated my previous palette.

I bought these products from Guzel. There is a 50% off sale on Guzel, go check it out if you live in UAE.

1) I Heart Makeup I ♡ Chocolate – Pink Fizz

(Price – AED38) Buy it here.

As soon as I saw this palette, I fell in love with it, the shades are beautiful and pigmented. I will write a full review on it soon.

2) L.A. GIRL Matte Pigment Lip Gloss – Dreamy

2017-04-27 10.47.22 1.jpg

(Price – AED18) Buy it here.

Some people might get confused as it says ‘Gloss’ but trust me it’s not glossy at all, it’s completely matte. Review and swatch will be coming up soon.

So there it is! my beauty purchases for April. Most of you will be like oh that’s not much and it’s not. I really wanted 2 more palettes and 1 other liquid lipstick but sadly I have spent A LOT on food this month hence I couldn’t buy the rest of the items I wanted.

That is it for now, bye guyss xoxo…


Wishlist Wednesday – Tarte

I have never ever tried any Tarte products but they do fascinate me and the products which I really WANT, end up in my wishlist.


So here it goes.

1) Tarteist™ PRO glow to go highlight & contour palette


Price – (US $23) (UAE AED110)

Portable highlight and contour palette with three natural artistry shades and none of the icky, bad stuff.


  • gleam (pearl highlight)
  • burst (shimmering sand highlight)
  • chisel (matte contour)

There is a bigger version of this palette but I don’t know, there is something about this palette that attracts me more.

2) Limited-edition glam goodies discovery set


Price – (US $25) (UAE AED110)

A deluxe discovery set of tartelette™ essentials for the eyes & lips.

Limited-edition set includes:

  • tartelette™ tease clay palette with 6 limited-edition shades: whisper (light pink), crush (taupe shimmer), heartbreaker (brown), wink (light mauve), first kiss (mauve shimmer) & bff (plum)
  • deluxe tarteist™ lash paint mascara
  • deluxe tarteist™ creamy matte lip paint in tbt (mauve)

I have wanted that eye shadow palette for months. And the lip paint in TBT is a VERY pretty color (Swatch by Noelle). The palette alone is 100 AED and this whole set is 110 AED. By paying 10 AED extra, you are getting a mini mascara and a mini liquid lipstick. That is what I call a good deal.

3) Limited-edition skin squad deluxe discovery set


Price – (US $22) (UAE AED100)

Travel set of vegan skincare & makeup best-sellers for good-for-you-glam looks

Limited-edition set includes:

  • deluxe deep dive cleansing gel
  • deluxe Rainforest of the Sea™ 4-in-1 setting mist
  • deluxe drink of H2O hydrating boost moisturizer
  • deluxe BB tinted treatment primer SPF 30 in light or medium
  • deluxe lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara
  • deluxe Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in thrilled (dusty mauve)

Whats better than having skin care products and makeup in one set? Plus, I don’t know how my skin would react to Tarte products so this set is perfect for trying out all those different items.


Have you tried any of the items mentioned above? If yes, let me know if they are worth buying!

What Tarte products are in your wishlist??

That is it for now, byee guyss xoxo…

Alright um this actually will be hard because my brain has stopped working properly due to exams. However I will try not to repeat points from my previous facts post. Which you can read here, if you are interested.

Here goes nothing:

1) I am obsessed with anything and everything MARVEL. I have watched and re-watched all the avenger movies and all their solo movies. I have re-watched Marvel Agents Of Shield, and it is currently my favorite TV show.

2) I am very single right now just like I have always been, but I feel that’s about to change very soon.

3) I love food. I can’t stay away from junk food for more than 2 days. 🍕🍟🍪🍩

4) Sleep > People 😂😂.

5) The top place on my Places To Go list is Maldives. 🏖️

6) My room has a purple and white theme. And right now its VERY messy or else I’d have added a picture.

Changing my URL.

Alright, So I had this thing in my mind that I don’t JUST blog about beauty. I have posts about things other than beauty. So to have a blog name “The Unprofessional Beauty Blog” didn’t sound right.

Hence I woke up today thinking that I should change my blog name. I used “The Blogging Brunette” on my Instagram and Twitter account, but from now on, even my blog will be called ‘The Blogging Brunette”.

Before actually doing it, I was so scared that I might loose a lot of stuff or might loose my followers. Thankfully nothing like that happened. And I was successfully able to change the name of my blog.
