Call of Fruity… as in Call of Duty… seriously? -_- What is this blasphemy? Not cool. Not cool at all! Call of Duty is sacred!
Now that we got that out of the way, there were several new displays over at Boots. They’d moved the Oh K! Beauty to a stand-alone umm… stand, by the entrance to Boots (pics at the bottom of this post) and they had a Soap & Glory display featuring the new Call of Fruity Collection (so wrong!) and another one featuring a bunch of Hair Care products all with “humorous” funny-punny names. The Call of Fruity display was two rows of identical products (same lay-out, same everything) whereas the Hair Care display had more of a variety.
In the interest of full disclosure, I did give the Call of Fruity stuff a sniff, but I didn’t like the way they smelled. As such, I didn’t end up buying anything. I’ll go over them anyways, for those who might be interested.
I kept putting it off, until I could put it off no longer lol 6 months or so later, I finally went and got my roots “touched up”.
I was actually more diligent about it, back when I was younger. Now that I’m older, it’s not really that high on my list of priorities lol However, enough was enough. As you can see, my hair looked horrible (the brassiness wasn’t doing me any favors either) so I decided to just get on with it.
I really wish I’d gotten this post up sooner (like, December), but you know… life. In this post, I’ll be going over some New Items, Skincare, Hair Care, Perfume, cute stuff at the “Aisle of Doom“, the Brand Gift of the month, and most importantly, a few of the discounted items during “Beauty Friday” (Sephora’s version of Black Friday)! I’ll start by going over all the Sephora Holiday Sets.
Sephora had released a whole slew of Gift Sets for the Holidays! You could differentiate them by their lovely navy blue packaging (to mimic the night sky) with a golden moon and stars scattered all over them! Around every corner there was a different Holiday Display. At first, it was a bit overwhelming, but I quickly realized it was mostly the same stuff, except rearranged differently. I tried to take pictures of as many of them as I could. I believe I managed to get all of them (sorry in advance for the glare in some of the photos!)
This (shown above) was literally on the opposite side of the Too Faced Counter. All the other Holiday Displays scattered throughout Sephora featured several of the same products, which led me to believe that this was the main display.

– Brown (suitable for chocolate and mahogany shades)
– Dark Brown (suitable for espresso and dark chocolate shades)
Like I said earlier when I first spotted these Instant Root Concealers (pics here), I was quite intrigued, because my hair was in dire need of the stuff! I mean, I hadn’t gotten my roots “touched up” since… I first dyed my hair (pics here) which was back during Summer lol Apparently this was available in several shades, but it seems we only got Warm Brown and Dark Brown (because… Kuwait). Aside from the the Instant Root Concealer Spray, the same brand came out with Instant Root Concealer Powder which sounds just as intriguing, but we didn’t get those (because… Kuwait). After the sales assistant spritzed some on my hair, it wasn’t an exact match, but I really liked how it “concealed” my darker roots to match my lighter hair!
They were having a Buy 2 Get 2 Free over at Boots (the one facing Carrefour at the Avenues) so I decided to pop in and check it out.
I like how they went from asking me to flat-out stop taking pictures (here and here) to now offering to hold up the products for me while I take the picture LOL I spotted some of the New Collections (new to Kuwait, rather) and a new Hair Care Brand called Briogeo, some fun Asian Skincare and more than a few absolutely stunning Palettes! With that being said, now that I’m getting older, I find myself… dare I say it… kinda’ losing interest in makeup (I’m 33). Not a lot seems to wow me anymore. I’ve also noticed the same thing happening with my choice of fragrance (I’m starting to turn away from all things candy and find a lot of my once-beloved gourmands straight up annoying now). If I ever fall out of love with videogames though, I’d be completely devastated (might as well not live anymore, after that! lawl). Thankfully, that hasn’t happened… yet.
Serving you some Draco Malfoy realness lawl
After spending forever trying to get into my personal Instagram account (I totally forgot my password, which just goes to show how often I actually use the app lawl) to frantically hunt down something appropriate to wear during Ramadan, I kept on receiving those annoying notifications from Instagram on my phone afterwards. I spent weeks ignoring them, but on July 12, I’d finally had enough and tried to disable the notifications through the app itself, which is when an ad for Belleza and more Salon & Spa popped up. I clicked the ad (which took me to their insta account) and immediately my eyes were drawn to the photo shown below.
Translation: Ammonia-free Dye and Bleach… Extra Strength Protection used with every Hair Coloring Session… so the hair does not get damaged and the color remains… vibrant and rich with a beautiful shine to make the hair appear healthy and fresh
As soon as I spotted that gorgeous ash-blonde color (in the After photo) I was obsessed! Seeing as how I’d just chopped off all my hair (pics, here), I was less hesitant about messing with it. Plus, they straight up advertised “ammonia-free dye” and “extra-strength protection”. It seemed legit. Being the impulsive creature that I am, I quickly called them up and made an appointment (30 mins from time of call) to dye my hair!
