I’ve recently joined Giella Custom Blend Cosmetics as their first Brand Ambassador in the UAE. I am thrilled to be part of the Giella family because it’s a brand that I truly believe in. Before I was even approached to become a brand ambassador, Eye M Glam is already my go-to highlighter.

As a beauty writer, I promised myself that I will only recommend and promote products that I truly believe in. I don’t see the point of promoting something that you don’t actually like, it just doesn’t make sense to me.

Giella products are hand-crafted with ingredients selected to customize the perfect product just for you. Products can be customized for allergies including nut oils and butters. She stands behind her products as being the finest in quality, texture and shade selections. All GIELLA products use the most pure ingredients that can  be found giving their makeup real skincare benefits.


Giella is based and manufactured in the US but they deliver internationally and all the products are available online. All Giella products are cruelty free, non-pore clogging, fragrance & allergy free & PETA Certified.

The best-selling highlighter, EYE M Glam is developed by Mario Dedicanovic, he is the infamous make-up artist of Kim Kardashian, of course I have to try it! It instantly became a staple in my kit. I love using my EYE M Glam on medium to dark skin tone because the sheen that it gives just look so natural. It complements with the whole look and not blind the person looking at you because your highlight is too shiny, no, it’s not like that. This highlighter gives a healthy and luminous glow, just perfect for brides.

The Giella team from New York sent me the other shades of highlighter which are: M Glam, Strobe, Rose Glam & Eye M Glam. I also got one of the loose eyeshadow in the shade B-Dazzle. It’s perfect to highlight the inner corners of the eyes & brow bone.

The highlighter is a multi-functioning product. Since it’s mineral pigments, you can use it on the inner corners of your eyes. For an all over glamorous glow, you can also mix it with your tinted moisturizer. To achieve that flawless glow, dust the highlighter on your décolletage, shoulders & legs.

You can also play around with the shades depending on what look you want to achieve. For myself, I love using M Glam because the yellow undertone suits my skin, it looks so subtle, natural & healthy. My highlight stands out when I’m out in the sun or if light passes through my face.


I also got brush #14 which is a fan brush that’s perfect to apply the highlighter on the cheek bones, bridge of the nose & cupid’s bow.

The ingredients are all mineral and not containing any harmful chemicals like paraben. The ingredients of both highlighters and loose eyeshadow are: Mica, Zinc Oxide, Iron Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Benzoate.

The price of the highlighter is $38 with the net weight of 30 grams & the loose eyeshadow costs $30 with a net weight of 2 grams.

Both products- highlighter & loose eyeshadow last long because a little goes a long way. The products are well pigmented and honestly, you only have to apply in once.
