I was at The Avenues with my younger brother’s wife when we (and by we, I mean me) decided to stop by a Sephora (I say a, as if we have more than one Sephora in Kuwait lawl). I was dumbfounded by my sister-in-law’s maturity (I’m pretty sure I’m at least 6-8 years older than her) because she exercised such restraint (masha’allah) and only purchased a few items, and even then, they were only things she would actually use, as opposed to myself randomly grabbing products left and right (just kidding, they were all “necessities”) and tossing them in my shopping basket (that they hand out at the entrance to Sephora). Even at the zigzag-y queue leading to the check-out counter, she showed little to no interest in all the ridiculously adorable minis! I was starting to suspect that she wasn’t really human (because how could anyone not be enticed by those cute minis at the zigzag-y queue?) and so as a final test I pointed out the GlamGlow PoutMud, mumbled something or other and tossed it in my shopping basket, to which she exclaimed that she was interested in trying it as well, and tossed one in her own shopping basket.

The World Cup BenePub

pink

Just so their girls don’t feel left out what with all the World Cup madness, the cosmetics brand Benefit has converted the Prince of Wales pub in London’s Covent Garden into a pink World Cup Pub and named it Gabbi’s Head (after Benefit’s iconic glambassador). The all pink decor seems very estrogen-friendly. Note how I attempt to act all nonchalant but inside I”m dying of envy. I mean how adorbs is that pastel pink chaise longue!

Not only does the pop-up Pub have a big screen that will play all the matches, but it’s also got skincare stations, brow pads, and tanning booths! If that wasn’t enough, they’ll also be having special events taking place each night ranging from Kareoke Night to Comedy Night, 80’s Night to Poker Night, and even a Pimp My Pumps workshop. Check out the link here.

I think  it’s a very cute concept! If any Brits are reading this, have a go, for us (we’re with you in spirit) ^_~

Crescent Row

Cresent Row

I stumbled upon the whimsical Crescent Row trio at the Benefit Cosmetics counter at Sephora the other day. The perfumes were in vintage-y cocktail shaker bottles (inspired by a cocktail shaker excavated from the founders’ (Jean and Jane Ford) grandmother’s belongings from the 1920s) housed in mini-doll-house packaging, each scent representing a different type of lady.
