12 Bloggers Reveal Their Beauty Must Haves

9 bloggers reveal their beauty must haves

How many of us turn to the internet to read reviews before we make a purchase?

I, personally refer to my favorite blogs before I purchase any beauty products. Especially if it is a considerable investment. Brands will tell me different things, and that doe-eyed salesgirl makes several promises. But for an honest and unbiased opinion on beauty products, it is bloggers who I turn to.

Well, don’t we all?

But apart from reviewing, what are the products that beauty bloggers use themselves? Better still, which are the products that beauty bloggers say that they cannot live without?

Slice of Dubai contacted leading beauty bloggers and asked them to name that ONE beauty product that they simply cannot do without. Keep scrolling for their answers!

 Benefit Mascara - A Beauty must-have by Rifk Ebeid
Benefit Mascara – A Beauty must-have by Rifk
 If I had to choose one essential beauty product that I wouldn’t want to part with, it would be mascara!  It is one product that can instantly revitalize your face and make you look fresh and awake. My mascara love is Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara, because it literally stays true to its name: lashes so plush, thick, and sultry that it makes it hard to believe they aren’t fake!

Naya ( The Party Parrot Blog)

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils
Naya loves Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils calling them the Bad Boys!

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil truly represents a golden standard of an eyeliner pencil: smooth, creamy, precise, waterproof, pigmented and just overall gorgeous. These pencils are great for beginners or professionals, as they are incredibly user friendly and you don’t need to be Lisa Eldridge to achieve great results. The colour selection (24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil comes in 40 different shades) is quite diversified as well, so there truly is a shade for everyone. I adore these pencils for when I am on a run and literally have 10 minutes to sort out my makeup: simply trace it where you want to and voila! The pencil won’t budge, smudge or move. #justloveit

My current favorite product that I cannot live without is Clarins Three Dotted Eyeliner. Totally heart this product because its so easy to use and the black color is intense.If you line it very thinly, it gives a very natural look and its also great to fill spaces between the lashes.

Mona Girish (The Monalogues)

Perfection Lumiere Foundation by Chanel
Perfection Lumiere Foundation by Chanel is Mona Girish’s long-term partner

My long-term beauty product relationship is the Perfection Lumiere Foundation by Chanel and oh, we’re serious. Let’s start with how it looks – it gives a satin-matte finish so the result is a gorgeous combination of luminous and matte. As for the coverage, great job of masking redness and blemishes but still leaves you looking quite natural. A big plus is that it’s long lasting which means you can keep your face on and not worry for about 6 – 8 hours. Overall, a great product for someone with combination skin looking for a natural polished look!

Nour Elm (NourElm)

Organic makeup favorites
Nour Elm opts for organic make-up for her sensitive skin

I get a lot of requests concerning my organic makeup. I won’t lie to you it is expensive and I find it hard to get good brands. Here’s some essentials, quite affordable and that do the work perfectly without itching your face and eyes ( a.k.a sensitive skin peeps like me). I also recommend buying online it’s way cheaper than retail stores.

Products: Lush foundation and Organic Lavera products including eyeliner (black), mascara (black), concealer (ivory)  and lipstick – Sweet Bramble

Latifa Saud (Flawless Latifa)

NARS sheer glow foundation
NARS sheer glow foundation is Flawless Latifa’s favorite product till date!
What’s better than flawless skin? The beauty of your makeup depends on having great looking skin, and to have that skin I think this product is ‘the one’! I’m talking about the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation!
I absolutely cant live without it. It offers medium to full coverage and has a sheer finish for dry skin. They also have another version which is matte, but i prefer the sheer one because it gives you that crazy most amazing dewy look! It makes you look younger and healthier. What’s more? They also have a lot of different shades you can choose from for different skin tones. So far this has been my favorite foundation, and I would recommended this to everyone.
You can find it in Sephora stores across the region.

Chanel Tent Innocence foundation

The most important makeup  product I can’t do and live without is my Chanel foundation. It’s the ultimate luxurious treat for my skin. It gives me a good light to medium-coverage which helps to cover slight marks and evens out my skin. With a spf-15 it protects my skin from tanning and lasts for good 6 to 8 hours. Lastly gives a silky soft finish to my skin, what more can I ask for.

Linda Betz (beautyandfashiondoll)

Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector Illuminator
Linda’s summer favorite is Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector Illuminator

If there was one product that I had to choose that I simply could not live without, it would be Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector Illuminator in opal.  It is a liquid therefore you can use it all over your body vs. just on your face as a highlighter. In the summer months I do not like to use a lot of product, so I only use the Shimmering Skin Perfector and it gives you an absolute beautiful glow from within look. I also on occasion mix it with foundation and you get a flawless glow. I get compliments on how beautiful my skin is every time I wear it. It is not glittery by any means and it so creamy, it melts right into your skin. When I want some extra glow to my skin I also use it on my body. This product is my HG and I could not live without it. I have 3 bottles on backup just in case!

Mikyajy Sabaya waterproof Eyeliner and Mascara 2-in-1 and Bioderma Sensibio H20 solution
Arti Bhatia swears by Mikyajy Sabaya waterproof Eyeliner and Mascara 2-in-1 and Bioderma Sensibio H20 solution

The two important beauty products that I can’t do without is Mikyajy Sabaya waterproof Eyeliner and Mascara 2-in-1 and Bioderma Sensibio H20 solution, which needs no introduction and is the favorite of many beautiful women across the globe.

I like the Sabaya waterproof eyeliner and mascara it is perfect for any season and I don’t need to carry two products in my handbag. It is jet black and needs to be removed with a good waterproof makeup remover or wipe.

Now the revolutionary product, Bioderma Sensibio H2O solution. It is a wonderful water based solution to clean your skin and works very well with my sensitive skin. It works wonders to remove makeup and also the dirt from the skin. My skin texture has improved too.

 Faiza Naz (Naz.Fai)

YOUVA nail polish remover
Faiza Naz loves her YOUVA nail polish remover

The beauty product I cannot live without is the organic nail polish remover, YOUVA- an anti ageing skincare boutique from Canada. They use raw and unprocessed ingredients instead of chemicals hence their products are launched in small quantities. This makes their products 100% natural.

I have always had a hard time finding a good nail polish remover that doesnt end up drying my nails or skin and make them look awful because of the hard chemicals used. YOUVA nail polish remover doesnt only smell of lavender but also moisturizes nails and cuticle with its soy oil and lavendar oil ingredients. Also, it helps softening and strengthening your nails. This is MUST try product if you are lazy for a salon appointment and want a color change without damaging your nails. Unfortunately products like these aren’t available in Dubai pharmacies.
You can get to know more about their products and shop this magical nail polish remover from www.youvaskin.com

UAE Beauty Editor recommends Timeless Vitamin CE with Ferulic acid serum
UAE Beauty Editor recommends Timeless Vitamin CE with Ferulic acid serum

Our favorite product which has changed the life of many of our readers is the Timeless Vitamin CE with Ferulic acid serum!!!

Of all the beauty products we use this is the one must have as it transforms skin within and helps us get away with less makeup and glowing all day long!! On most days this is all we apply with Sunscreen of course and a physical sunscreen at that (more about that later).
You can expect this mix of potent antioxidants to help ward off free-radical damage, fade discolorations, and improve multiple signs of aging over time. If you’re following our blog you know that we advise for serious anti-aging products and not designer brands like La Mer or Dior as most of them are a waste of your money!! One word of caution though: The formula must be fresh and run colorless otherwise it has oxidized and is useless already. Also keep it in your fridge and never ever let sunlight near it!

NYX Collection Noir Black eyeliner
I just can’t leave the house without a swipe of NYX Collection Noir BEL06 Black eyeliner!

I do have a lot of make-up favorites, but the one thing I can never leave the house without is perfectly lined eyes! Which is why the one beauty product that I cannot live without is the NYX Collection Noir BEL06 liquid black eyeliner.

The wand makes the eyeliner liquid super easy to apply and maneuver around your eyes. I cannot stress enough on how easy and quick it is to get the perfect winged eyeliner look every morning, minus the fuss. If there is ever a mistake, just dab the spot with a ear bud dipped in water and the stray swipe is gone without a trace. So neat!
