Teeez Cosmetics

Has anyone actually seen or heard of this brand before? I was at Mishref Fair Grounds (October) when I came across the Teeez Cosmetics booth and because it was my first time ever seeing this brand, I decided to pick up one thing to try out from them (but you know how that goes, and I ended up with three instead) regardless of how expensive this brand was. I mean it wasn’t Chanel expensive but their price point was higher than MAC‘s… if that makes any sense. Honestly, the wacky packaging is what drew me in, but the gorgeous shades is what made me actually buy.

I picked up a single Lipbalm and two Eyeshadows.

Kryolan Haul

This was another impulse-buy during the Perfume & Makeup Exhibit at Mishref Fair Grounds back in October-November. I had attended a wedding earlier that month, and at the behest of all the females in my life, had employed the services of a Makeup Artist. Apparently, my makeup application is too “light” for formal events. The Makeup Artist caked and baked the life out of my face until I was virtually unrecognizable. It was a whole process and it took hours upon hours (and here I thought I took forever). The only fun part for me about the whole ordeal was looking over her kit; she had everything from Chanel to Lime Crime and Colourpop, lots of MAC, and so much more (I love snooping through people’s makeup collection)! With that being said, I was not impressed with the end result, seeing as how she made me look like your typical friendly neighborhood Drag Queen which led to me feeling awkward and uncomfortable throughout the entire wedding, but hey, at least all the females in my life approve (more is more… in Kuwait).

As a final step, she took out this huge can of Setting Spray (it was so huge, at first I legit thought it was Hair Spray) and drenched my face in it. After the wedding was over, I passed out face-down on my pillow around 3 in the morning (sue me) but when I woke up, my makeup was not only intact but virtually untouched (aside from the sides of my nose er, nostrils which I kept wiping with a tissue eventually removing all traces of foundation from it because it was so cold in the Wedding Hall).

Fast-forward to a month later, I spotted the iconic Blue Can of Fixing Spray at the Kryolan Booth and flirted with the idea of purchasing it but it cost a lot so I decided against it and was about to walk away when I saw something I’d been dying to get my hands on for years, a Color Switch from the brand Vera Mona, laying all nonchalant on the shelving unit. I figure since I was going to buy the Vera Mona Color Switch, might as well pick up the Kryolan Fixing Spray as well and that settled that.

Mango Haulage

I was walking past Mango (Avenues) when something in there caught my eye and I decided to go in. I’d like to preface this by saying that I don’t recall ever purchasing something from Mango in the past, let alone several somethings. What I’m saying is this was pretty much my first Mango haul ever. At first the sales assistants left me alone as I did my usual lap around the store, save for giving me the stink-eye as if to say “What is this homeless-looking person (unruly curls, not a stitch of makeup, t-shirt, jeans, flats, and a backpack) doing in our store?” but once I had a huge pile of clothes, they all started hovering around me asking me if I needed any help (which I find extremely annoying because I prefer shopping in peace) so I put them to work by handing them my clothes to hang in the changing room for me as I continued my lap in peace.

Japanese KitKat – Mount Fuji Strawberry Cheese Cake

I got the Mount Fuji Strawberry Cheese Cake KitKat around the same time I got the Wasabit KitKat (both from Sultan Center) and thought for sure that I’d hauled them. After searching high and low on my blog, I still can’t find anything… so here we are. Mount Fuji Strawberry Cheese Cake KitKats are everything!!!! Not only did they taste heavenly but even the packaging was absolutely beautiful!

H&M Black Wide-Leg Pants

I finally got the Black Wide-Leg Pants that I’ve been obsessing over! I first saw these pants at the Avenues Phase III Branch of H&M (directly across from Harvey Nichols) but they were too small, which is why I decided to visit the Salmiya Branch of H&M but never found them (I don’t believe they were ever stocked over there) but finally hauled them from the Avenues Phase II Branch (across from Shake Shack).
