Rumana Nazim, Founder of Dubai-based concept store, The Edit, talks us through her hero beauty products

Push play power matte lip pigment Dhs145 Nars available at


I love liquid matte lipsticks but struggle to find ones that don’t dry out my lips. This Nars red lipstick is the perfect shade for almost every skin tone and comes with a very precise applicator that ensures you get that perfect pout. I’ve also found that it’s hydrating and doesn’t transfer easily, which is quite important with face masks.

Vanish Concealer Dhs190 Hourglass available at


I tend not to wear much makeup on a daily basis but when I do, this concealer does the job, especially if I’ve not had much sleep. It is quite pigmented but doesn’t look quite natural.

Dipbrow pomade Dhs103 Anastasia Beverly Hills available at

Anastasia Beverley Hills

I believe that brows are the most important and prominent feature of any woman’s face and well-groomed brows are imperative to frame your face well. This pomade has been a stalwart item in my makeup bag and gives me the perfect, strong brow look that I love.

Hand cream vanilla orange peel Dhs95 Grown Alchemist available at

Grown Alchemist

With all the sanitiser I’ve been using, this hand cream has been a lifesaver. It’s lightweight and moisturises without being greasy. I tend to touch my hair quite a lot and finding a good hand cream that doesn’t transfer can be quite tricky.

The rich cream 30ml Dhs710 Augustinus Bader available at

Augustinas Bader

After trying out the products from this brand, I realised that the rich cream is my favourite, and it has lived up to its claims. My skin looks healthier with more of a radiant texture to it. It isn’t too heavy and is perfect for the dry skin during Dubai’s summers.

The Noir 100ml for Dhs1,155 Le Labo available at 

Le Labo

Anyone who knows me knows that this scent is one I refuse to part with. Le Labo makes bold scents that have a more contemporary flair to them, so it’s quite user-friendly from both day and night.

The reparative body lotion Dhs751 La Mer available at NET-A-PORTER

La Mer

My skin is very sensitive and dry. I’m always looking for a lotion to give me a hydrated and supple feel. La Mer’s Body Lotion includes their miracle broth and helps to blur any scars or pigmentation.

OI hair butter Dhs140 Davines available at

All of Davines’ products are great but this one stands out by nourishing my hair, making it less frizzy and adding a softness. I have fine hair, but this doesn’t weigh it down, plus, it smells great.

CRYOpress Dhs495 001 Skincare

001. Skincare

Inspired by cryotherapy, this is an ice massage roller that is great for lymphatic drainage and boosts your skin with oxygen and toxin drainage. I suffer from a lot of allergies and this helps. It comes with a flash serum that brightens my skin too.
