Ever wondered what colour lipstick would best represent The Palm or the Marina? A new homegrown makeup brand paying tribute to the vibrant city of Dubai and it’s fierce women.
The Dubai Dolls is a cruelty-free brand founded by Canadian duo Priya Judge and Gayatri Sagar. It celebrates the city through four Lip Shine shades, each named after the some of most popular destinations: ‘The Burj’ which comes in an iconic red shade; a bright coral for ‘La Mer’; ‘The Palm’ is represented with a creamy nude; and ‘Marina’ is captured with a popping Fuchsia hue.
The texture is dry matte, which doesn’t come off your lips when applied. The shine glides on smoothly and evenly, and if you want some added hydration or a glossy finish, apply a lip oil on top.
Not only do they strive to make you feel good, but they also want to empower the next generation by improve young girls’ access to quality education in developing countries. They donate 2 percent of their sales to ensure that young girls from an underprivileged and undernourished backgrounds receive one year of nutritious lunch meals as well as education in a private institution.
Each Lip shine is priced at Dhs95, but you can get all four in a limited-edition gift set for Dhs295. Make sure to also check out their collection of faux mink lashes.
