Being a woman can sometimes be hard, can’t it?
Makeup never lasts all day long, our hair gets all frizzy in a second, often lipstick will disappear and leave no trace after 30 minutes, heels can hurt and bras feel like a trap.
We always have to bring with us an extra pair of shoes, a makeup bag and a brush for the jungle on our heads; so, at the end of the day, our purse looks more like a trolley.
That’s why, when I find something that stays the distance for several hours, it’s like I’ve found heaven; those kind of products are my saviours and without them I’d probably look like a zombie.
Fortunately now there are many foundations that last up to 24 hours, like the beautiful ranges from Clarins and Benefit or the new ranges by Bare Minerals; I don’t use any foundation in my makeup routine but my BB cream from Clarins lasts all day long too.
You can also get perfect curls that hold for 18 hours with the Remington curling iron; nails that last up to 14 days with some simple and flawless nail wraps; and bras that won’t hurt or bother you and that will feel comfortable for 18 hours, like the one by Playtex.
There are, then, about a million long lasting lipsticks, like the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick and the Mega Last Lip Color by Wet ‘n Wild.
You don’t have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the morning and retouch your makeup look, fix your bra and loosen it a bit and get nervous because your nail polish chipped, again.
All these new products help us on a daily basis, sparing us precious minutes in the morning and throughout the day.
Life is now somehow easier and that’s what we need.
I think that one of the most difficult things for us, still, is finding a pair of heels that don’t make us think that our feet will detach as a protest after a few hours of wearing them.
But when I came across the 18 hours heels by Shaherazad, I thought “This is a game changer”. Shoes that you can wear all day long and that won’t hurt like hell.
Imagine a day when you have to go to work – maybe in an office, where your attire counts – and then you have to do another million things, like go to the farmers market, pick up the kids from school, shopping with your friends or go on a date with your other half.
If I had a day like this, I’d bring with me an extra pair of shoes, surely flat ones; but with these shoes you don’t have to.
You can walk, stand, sit, whatever and wherever you want; and they won’t hurt.
I know I’m a bit repetitive on this subject, but it’s only because I still can’t believe it.
Shoes by Shaherazad are elegant, of excellent quality and perfect for any woman of any age.
Feeling beautiful and feeling comfortable don’t have to be mutually exclusive, you can feel like Angelina Jolie - well, kind of – and not feel any pain.
Therefore you will look amazing and feel powerful too; and often with our busy schedules, this is something very difficult to achieve.
Long lasting products look like gold to me. The less I have to worry about my appearance, the better.
Your foundation won’t only last longer when you wear it, but it will last longer inside its little bottle too, because you won’t have to use a huge amount of it to get that flawless look.
It’s the same for all your other makeup products.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a mother, a business woman, a housewife, a student; wearing comfortable clothes that make you also feel confident about yourself sounds like a fantasy, but not with the Playtex bra and Shoes by Shaherazad heels.
The modern age is full of wonders and commodities and everyday something is invented, which will make our lives simpler.
There are so many useful, pretty, comfy products that are waiting for you to try them.
