Sanjeev and I had an awesome trip to Dubai. We returned at around 4 am today. Slowly getting back in the work mode. 😛
We just had one day to roam around and we actually utilized it to full potential. I fell in love with the city and would love to go back there again and again.We mainly shopped at the Mall of Emirates and The Dubai Mall.
Sanjeev bought around 19 books from Dubai :stars: . I only bought one. 😀 The way I hoard makeup, he hoards books. He also picked up DavidOff Cool Water perfume for Men for himself. That was his shopping.
Coming to my shopping.
I have been dying to get this book by Rae Morris for the past many months. Can’t wait to read it.I even ordered it from Amazon but that never reached me. 🙁 I finally bought it. Dubai has massively huge book shops. It’s amazing how well they are stocked . You pick up any section and you’d extensive range of books. Loved!
Bobbi Brown tinted moisturizing balm SPF 25:
I have never been a tinted moisturizer person. I went to the Bobbi Brown Counter and the SA asked if she could try the tinted moisturiser on me. I gladly agreed. This product was so hydrating and moisturizing that within 5 minutes I knew I had to get this. The coverage was sheer to medium, which I like. My skin looked miles better. It was giving that natural dewy look. I was totally sold.
The only drawback I felt was the glass pot packaging and the way it smells – a little like an iodex.
Before the presentation on Tuesday, I had a little time in hand so I picked up one Bobbi brown creamy Lipstick – Rose Petal. I wore that lipstick the entire day and I loved it so much that I decided to pick another one. I went to the same counter again the same evening but they didn’t have too many shades. I decided to check these at the other mall and if I didn’t get more shades, I’d pick up the back up of this lipstick. These lipsticks are amazingly creamy, super hydrating, have a semi glossy texture and they make your lips look so much better . I picked up Italian rose lipstick the other day. Both the shades are quite similar but I really couldn’t come back to India with just one of these.
The only drawback would be that since these are so creamy these might melt in the hot weather. you’d have to store them in refrigerator.
My facial cream had got over. i came across the korres store and thought I’d pick up my cream from here. I had to pick it when when I read the list printed on the carton. 🙂
And lastly, a red Mango bag. I could have got this in India also but I was not sure if they would have a stock of it or not. The same bag is available in green and white shade also. you may check out the colours HERE
It was quite a memorable trip. I hope I go back to Dubai again. 🙂
