Enigma Discovery Box unboxing - November

Hello, today's post is going to be an un-boxing of Enigma Discovery Box 
For those of you who don't know, it's a subscription service that provides you with variety of products from hair products, perfumes, makeup, and snacks.. Here's an overview on what's inside the box

Let's jump right in ..
1. CHI Volume Booster liquid bodifying glaze 
I already have thick hair so I wouldn't use it, so I'll give it away.

2. Renee Blanche Doccianatura Lavender shower gel 
Never heard of this brand but it smells very nice!

3. Marriott Pasta Fresca
When they said I'll get snacks in my box I didn't expect to get a bag of colored pasta.. I'm disappointed with that one you guys.

4. Kerastase Initialiste hair serum
I received it before in my last December box, I loved it.

5. Maybelline Color Show nail polish in Urban Coral
I'm a sucker for Maybelline nail polishes.. I'm happy with this one!

6. Cyble Brow Mania pencil in dark brown
I received this one before in my last December box, again .. it's okay, I can't complain 

7. Veet wax strips
I'm a big fan of Veet facial strips so I think I'll like these.

and last but not least 2 copies of Enigma November issues in Arabic and English

What I did not like about the box, is that 2 out of 9 products were in last December box, I thought the point of subscription boxes is to try out new products, and the pasta bag 

What I liked about my box is that I didn't receive any vouchers which is AWESOME and all the products are full size.. Good Job, Enigma!

..I'd give this box 8 out of 10 #KeepItUpEnigma! :)

November favorites

Hello girlies, can you believe it's December already?! and Christmas is in less than 3 weeks! #happy
I have a lot of favorites for the past month so let's go through them ..

L'oreal Voluminous mascara I love all L'oreal mascaras but this one is beautiful, it separates the lashes. Every time I wear it, it feels like I have lashes extensions on!

Nuxe Aroma-Perfection anti-shine fluid it is so light, I only use one bump with a little of Palmer's moisturizer ,and that's a wonderful face primer

Maybelline Color Tattoo "Bad To The Bronze" I've been eyeing this one since forever, but I couldn't find it anywhere, so I ordered it online and I'm very happy with it

Millefoglie D'italia Bocconcini it is the most sweet, crispy, buttery yet light cookies I've ever tasted, 
-it was so hard to keep these two for the pictures- :)

Falling Leaves candle by Candle-Lit it is very similar to BBW leaves candles but this one is much cheaper #ThumbsUp

Ahmed tea Mixed Citrus this tea screams WINTER, if I could drink only one tea for the rest of the winter it would be it

"Elhawl" or "Horror" by Dr. Ahmed K.Tawfiq .. if you're into American Horror Story then you must read this book.

T.V. show 
Jane the virgin

Frank Ocean's super rich kids .. it's not a new track but lately I've been obsessed with this one.
If you are a fellow blogger ,please leave your favorites link down below, I'd love to see what your favorites are!

{DIY} how to make a bookmark

Hello people, long time no see
Today I'm going to show you how to make a bookmark step by step, here's what we're going to use:

1. Glue
First, loop the end of the leather cord

Put one bead and then loop the lace again after each bead

here's how it looks after we're done with all the beads ..

Take the other end of the lace and put it into the ring like the picture, glue the end of the lace with the lace.

Let the glue dry, and there you are, you have a cute bookmark!

small makeup haul and my first impression

Revlon colorburst lip butter in Tutti Frutti it's like a lipbalm that has a coral tint to it, it smells nice but it's not as moisturizing as I thought it would be.
Hard Candy "in the shadows" palette it came with a mini eye primer, the colors are pigmented, and it wasn't expensive at all.
Tanwise self-tanning face gel it has a citrussy scent, and it gives a nice glow to the skin.

June favorites

Hello folks, I gotta say that I'm so glad June is over, Let's dig in my favorites

Bath & Body Works warm vanilla sugar body mist .. I think that's how heaven smells like! although vanilla scents can be overwhelming sometimes, this one is very soft and it is actually has a warm feeling to it!
Delon chocolate .. this chocolate had been my favorite treat for this past month

Real Techniques expert brush .. I've never been a fan of foundation brushes but this one is different, it gives the foundation a dewy finish and it doesn't leave any streaks

Nescafe Gold .. I think you already know that I love coffee -who doesn't?-  this one is rich, and strong, definitely my taste

Himalaya purifying neem face wash .. I've read a lot of good reviews about this brand but i never tried any of it's products and I needed a face wash so I bought the small size just to give it a try and I liked the way my skin feels like after using it, my skin has been clear, it didn't break my out

Philosophy the supernatural coloring book .. this palette has 2 blushes, 1 cream blush, 2 lip glosses, 2 eye shadows
although it's one of my favorite palettes and it has everything you would need to create a natural look but there're cons in this palette, the eye shadows aren't pigmented and the packaging looks cheap
but I like the blushes and the lip glosses very much

empties: products I've used up

Since everyone is doing "The Empties" post on their blogs, so I thought why not sharing my trash with you, my friends.. let's go through my trash of two months

Bioderma makeup remover .. can we just take a moment to appreciate that makeup remover, already have a 2 backups.. yes, I'm obsessed with it!
L'oreal white perfect day cream .. it was a sample that I got long ago, it was good but it didn't impress me
Clarins multi-active day cream .. another sample that I got almost two years ago, I loved it very much but its so pricey for me

L'oreal haydra-total 5 gel cream .. it smells nice and not greasy at all, great for combination and oily skin, and perfect as base for makeup, i looked for it everywhere but I've been told that they discontinued it :(

 2 containers of Palmers .. I can't live without it, it's very moisturizing, smells nice, and cheap 
2 Nivea deodorants .. they did the job 
The Body Shop shea eau de toilette .. my favorite scent from Body Shop, I already repurchased it

Oriflame Pure Nature peel-off mask .. a a huge fan of peel-off masks in general. Every time I use it, it makes my skin bright but the scent is so strong ..if only they could fix the scent issue i'd definitely repurchase it again

 Malizia Bon Bons eau de toilette in sweet vanilla 

and Labello orange lip palm .. liked it, it's delicious and moisturizing
