Review: COLOURPOP ULTRA METTALIC LIPS


Hello Guys,

Colourpop released metallic lip colors a while back and i didn't know if i would like them. They seemed a little too shiny and i wasn't convinced on a metallic liquid lip color. Being the addict that i am i stalked colourpop's twitter and placed my order on the website immediately it launched. I could only grab two colors as the other two got sold out quickly.Boy do people love this brand.

My order included 3WAY and ZEBRA out of the 4 colors that where released. After receiving and swatching, i noticed there was very little product in the tube. I had to swatch a few times to get good color pay off. I was a little dissapointed with this. I have never had any issues with colourpop products. The two colors i have are quite similar but one is a little more wine than the other. On the lips there is not so much difference. The formula of this is a satin. I actually thought these would be matte but they aren't which to me is a good thing. For some reason i don't see myself wearing this a lot or maybe i just didn't get the colors i really wanted. For the price i guess i cant complain too much even though colourpop makes awesome products. Thinking of getting new shades to try out. Maybe Flitter or Salt? Let me know what your faves are!!

REVIEW: MYMAKEUPNG GOODIES....


Hello Guys,
I was recently sent some lovely goodies from Tayo of MYMAKEUPNG. Tayo is my girl and she stays hooking me up with the lastest makeup. In my goodybag where 3 of the new colourpop lipglosses, 3 Nabi ip pencils and one of the softest beauty blenders i have ever tried . The AOA wonder blender.

AOA WONDER BLENDER: I am super picky with beauty blenders because they all promise the same thing but hardly ever deliver. I am loyal to my original beauty blender and try not to stray to other brands because they never give the flawless blend they promise. (side-eyeing my RT beauty sponge) They tend to soak up all the product on your skin and leave your face with patches. When i did the "feel" test with this one i was so impressed because even dry it was so soft to touch. I applied a drop pf foundation on my face and blended it out with this and the application was flawless. When i wet this and used it on my face my makeup was so well blended out!!! Honestly, this knocks the beauty blender out of the park. I will definitely be getting more of these to use on myself and future clients. LOVE!!!

NABI LIP PENCILS: The first thing i noticed about this lip pencil was the length. Its so hard to find a brand that gives you a pencil that doesn't run out after sharpening it more than three times. These colors are FAIR in my opinion. Pigmentation is not as great as other lip pencils i have tried recently or maybe its just the colors i received. They are not the typical bright colors so they do not line as intensely as others. 

L-R: A-BOO, WEHO , BESTIE
COLOURPOP: I have been waiting for Colourpop to release glosses for the longest and time and i was super excited when i heard about this. The glosses have different finishes ranging from sheer-metallic. I received 3 colors Weho, Bestie and A-Boo. These colors are suitable to wear alone or over a lipstick. They are no sticky and give high shine. They are also not too light for dark skin. I think lip glosses can get a pass when it comes to being pale unlike lipsticks because they sheer out and dont end up looking ashy. If you are a soft lip/ nude lip love these colors are perfect for you.

All of these products listed can be found on the site and two of them are under N1000!! Can you say DEAL?

AOA BLENDER: N750. Purchase HERE
NABIPENCILS:N400.Purchase HERE
COLOURPOP: N4500 Purchase HERE

Hope you enjoyed my review guys!!Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome weekend.

REVIEW: PUR COSMETICS CAMEO CONTOUR STICK


Hello Guys!!

I have a review of a makeup brand that is relatively new and yet to make its mark in the beauty industry. A few months ago i was contacted by PUR Cosmetics team in the US and they sent me these dual contour sticks to try out and review. I was super excited to give them a try as i am not really big on cream products because of my oily skin.

NO FLASH
WHAT PUR COSMETICS SAYS: Meet the final word in flawless contouring. PÜR's dual-ended 2-in-1 contour stick adds depth and dimension to your natural features. Natural, light-reflective microspheres emphasize your face’s natural highlights and shadows to highlight your best features and minimize others. This easily blendable, creamy formula sets to a powder and can be used as a foundation.
WITH FLASH
DAZZLEBEAUTIE: This product comes in 5 shades :LIGHT , MEDIUM, TAN, DARK, DEEP. My shade falls between dark and deep depending on how dark i want my highlight and contour to be. This product is handy and super easy to carry around. It also takes the hassle of carrying a ton of products to work with during your makeup process. It is creamy and blends well into the skin. The only problem i has is the highlight side doesn't blend as well as the contour side and when u set it can look a bit patchy after a while. Also, the lighter side of the last three dark shades are bit too pale for WOC.

Each Cameo contour stick comes with a beauty blender that works very well for blending out the product. I though it would be one of those beauty blenders that soaked up product but this is pretty great. I quite like this product and i enjoy using it for a bomb ass contour. 

PRICE: $39.50

REVIEW: House of lashes Haul

                     Hello Gorgeous people!!!

After deciding to seriously step up my lash game i was on the hunt for some fuller and more daring lashes .The regular #43"s and #523"s where no longer doing it for me. Well except on the days when i am not going anywhere special and don't need all that drama. I did some snooping online and i found some awesome lash brands that had just what i needed and at a good price too. I decided to take advantage of a free shipping sale from HOL and i picked up some of their popular styles.

My haul included  ICONIC, SMOKEY MUSE, STARLET and HEART BREAKER lashes.
HEARTBREAKER :These Heart breakers are a lot like you – soft and playful, but with an edginess that highlights your individuality. Bewitchingly asymmetrical strands accentuate these romantically woven lashes,  bidding people to notice every eloquent blink and every impish look.  

DAZZLEBEAUTIE: These lashes are for people who like subtle/ no drama on their eyes. These are super lightweight and not dramatic at all. I wore these twice and came to the conclusion that I don't like them. After falling in love with the more dramatic styles I don't think this is one I would rock repeatedly.
STARLET: Are you ready for your close-up?! Strike a pose and make your way onto the red carpet with our NEW Starlet lashes.It is our most dramatic and voluminous style from our Premium Luxe collection. These multi-dimensional lashes will compliment every special appearance you make. An award-winning look for all you rising stars.

DAZZLEBEAUTIE : When I saw these lashes online I was like Yessssss I'm gonna give them the BIZNESSSS with these. Lmao. Starlet is a super dramatic lash that is not for the faint of hearts. Once on it looks so beautiful but it also packs some weight to the eye. The band is also super thick so it can be a hassle trying to get these on. I struggled the first few times I wore these so I guess this style isn't really my thing but il always keep one just in case. 
ICONICBe daring. Be unforgettable. Be Iconic®. These showstopping lashes combine a dynamic V-formation effect with a criss-cross pattern, lending your soulful eyes the boldness of history's most celebrated beauties and trendsetters.

DAZZLEBEAUTIE: These lashes are long full and super lightweight. I remember thinking they would be heavy on the Lids but not at all. They look good with every makeup look and you can  even get away with rocking them without an eyeliner. These are my favourite and I can't stop wearing them. They can be worn at least 10 times over before discarding them. I put mine to good use for a while and they didn't rip or loose shape.
SMOKEYMUSEReflect deeply and dream freely. The source of your inner goddess and inspiration comes from within. Introducing Smokey Muse, the newest addition to our Glam Collection! Our new lash spikes the interest of every artist and inspires every makeup look. This multi-layered, moderately dense, and oh-so wispy lash style is made with our thin flexible band for extra style and comfort. Supremely fitting for every smokey eye or a night on the town.

DAZZLEBEAUTIE: These lashes are my second favourite from house of lashes. They aren't as long as Iconic which I love so much but they are full and give the eyes a very sexy effect. I love wearing them with a very dramatic eyeshadow combination so they don't compete with my eyes too much. These are super longlasting as well and I noticed with use they become more fuller.

That's my review on the 4 HOL styles I got. Can't wait to try more!!! What are your favourites?

Thanks for stopping by!!

REVIEW: Get Clean brushes with the "Brush egg"


Hi Guys,
Washing my makeup brushes is a task for me and i used to dread the process. Can you imagine washing 20/30 brushes at a go and having to make sure they are all squeaky clean after all the makeup products have been used on them severally. I came across the brush egg online and i thought to try it out. I always wanted the sigma Spa brush cleansing mat but never got around to purchasing it. I didnt need the hassle of ordering it online and shipping. Not a lot of Nigerian retailers stock sigma products here in Nigeria.(side note). 

THE ONLY OFFICIAL BRUSH EGG. The Brush Egg is used to help with the deep cleaning process of makeup brushes. The Brush Egg is, - Compact - Quick, Easy, Affordable AND Effective! - Reduces the use of Brush Cleaning Solution (which dries out bristles) - Use whichever Soap or Shampoo you choose - Smaller knobs on top used for Foaming & Lathering - Grooves on bottom used to agitate bristles just enough to release product, dirt, and oils without stripping them Smaller knobs are also ideal for smaller eye brushes (Fan, Liner, Smudge, Pencil) for extra gentle lathering and releasing of dried on products. Especially waterproof mascara and liner.

DAZZLE BEAUTIE: This tool is called a brush egg but it's larger than an egg.. and it's also half an egg so..(That is not even the point at all but oh well). LOL. I have been using this for a while and i love how quick it cleans my brushes. A little back and forth strokes and you have super clean brushes in seconds. This brush egg seriously cuts down on the time and energy you spend washing your beauty tools and it makes the process much more enjoyable for me at least. It is handy, durable and very affordable. It also comes in a variety of pretty colors. My only problem is i wish it was slightly larger. It is pretty tiny and squeezes your fingers when you hold it for a long period. So far i love it and if you don't enjoy washing your makeup brushes this is the tool you NEED!!!

WHERE TO BUY: MYMAKEUP
PRICE: N750
