FOTD: Merry Berries!!

Hi Dolls! Can i just start this post by saying i am very sad .and i want to rant a little... The story is this.... After my makeup look was completed, i took TONS of pics... Almost 70 pictures and they where the best work i have done and i was really proud of them. I decided to do a little editing with picasa and next thing i know all my pictures are DELETED!!!! OMG i was so pissed! I try to see if  i could reverse the action , search the recycle bin, Local C drive blablablabla... all to no avail... I also made the mistake of cutting the pictures from my memory card to my laptop instead of copying.... How ridiculous!..I was so upset yesterday. Anyways i still had about 8 pictures that where saved on the camera memory before i popped my memory card in..

So onto the POST!

This look is Shirley Beniang inspired. If you do not know who Shirley Beniang is she is the fashion and beauty blogger who runs the blog meek-n-mild .. I really loved the look and was inspired to recreate it...

MINI HAUL: Revlon,Mac, Rimmell....

Hello Dolls!! Hope everyone is having a lovely day so far! Just wanted to show you guys a few stuff i picked up recently. I haven't really gotten a lot of makeup recently as i can't get a lot of the stuff i want here. e.g Ben Nye Banana visage powder and UD Vice palette.:( oooh and also the Real Techniques brushes by Samantha Chapman.... hopefully soon....

Now unto the post...... First thing i have to show...


I have wanted to get this foundation for a while but never found it here.... Thanks to Konga i was able to get my hands on this FINALLY!!! A dear friend of mine from twitter sent me one in the shade Caramel but it was just too dark for me. The swatches and pictures i had seen of people who use this foundation online matched with my own skin tone and i was quite disapointed. I decided to grab the toast and it was a little too light but i mix then together and i get the perfect shade.. so YAAY!!

I am actually quite pleased with this product. It gives me a nice matte finish and it STAYS!!! It really does what it says even though it gives me a tough time when i try to take it off. I have worn this out a couple of times and i had a nice dewy face after a while as i have oily skin... These are still available on Konga for N2350 and they stock them in a variety of shades. I must say i do prefer this to my Mac Studio finish foundation, it controls my oilies and the price is great.


I also picked up the Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Copper penny recently. I realised that i do have a lot of shimmery eyeshadows but i don't have a decent GOLD eyeshadow.. I don't know if you know what i mean  but YEAH!! :D... I have worn this quite a couple of times and its the prettiest eyeshadow ever. I love to apply this in the corners of my eye to make them pop...

Now this one i saw on a friend and just had to have it!! She used it as a cheek highlight and she was glowing all over the place.LOL. I picked this up Kudi store in Lagos and it cost N1500.

with flash

 Just look how pretty it looks from the picture.. Its the most gorgeous bronzer ever!! It gives a lovely glow. I like to dust this on the tip of my nose,forehead and my cheeks! POP!



I have never been a fan of cream eye shadows as they always crease after a while and aren't the easiest to apply even though they promise that. I saw these on KONGA and after reading reviews on them i decided to get the colours MERMAID and GET FRESH.. 

with  flash

  I must say i am  really impressed with these.. I do use them as a base and they make my eye shadows look more vibrant and last longer. I also like to use GET FRESH on my eyes alone. It gives a nice shimmer.

no flash

 These have been discontinued by Rimmel but can be found on KONGA for N450.. get it Ladies!!


I picked up some more Jordana lipsticks which i seem to be really enjoying. They are very creamy,pigmented and not drying on the lips AT ALL!! These are cheaper alternatives to the high end lispticks.. I cant figure out what MAC lipsticks these would be dupes for but if you want a nice pink and berry lip color i would suggest these....


with flash

no flash


This is a very bold and INTERESTING lipstick.. Its an amplified finish and very pigmented on the lips... Honestly, its one of those hard to describe colors... A light magenta, purple... :S.. It has a very pretty sheen to it and i have worn this out a few times at night because i'm too scared to wear this out during the day.

This is the boldest purple lipstick i own and i absolutely love it! Its a very sexy, in your face bright lip color. I will do a FOTD with this soon! Hopefully im bold enough to actually wear it during the day. :D

 Hope you guys enjoyed the post!! More Hauls coming soon!

 I also wanted to thank everyone for the support and all the love on twitter! It's very encouraging.. Thank you so much!! :D

Thanks for stopping by!

Nail Art: Neon Leopard print nails!!

Hi Dolls, hope everyone is having a great week so far. I just wanted to show you all this quick nail art design i did.This is my first DIY nail design and i was super excited with the results. I was looking up nail art tutorials on Youtube and i saw how easy it was to create a nice leopard print nail design. Knowing me i got to work right away trying to master it. Honestly it is super easy!!

 I looked up some leopard print wallpaper designs to get inspiration and this neon multicolored print design on a white background caught my eye. I just had to recreate it on my nails.


  • White nail polish
  • Black nail polish
  • Pink,green,pink,blue nail polish
  • A dotting tool(u can use a toothpick, the tip of an eyeliner brush or even Qtips)
  • A pointed nail art brush or nail marker
  • Top coat

  •  Start by applying 2 coats of white nail polish on your nails after they have been buffed and filed.
  • Use a dotting tool to make multicolored dots on your nails and leave to set.. make as many dots as you want its up to you.
  • Use you nail art brush,preferably a pointed one to make random uneven shapes around your dots. They don't have to be perfect but do make the shapes with a steady hand and on a flat surface.
  • Leave to dry for a few minutes and finish off with a top coat.. (Make sure u let it dry properly before applying top coat or the black polish will smudge and mess it up.Happened to me but oh well  :)

 Pics below....

so bright and in your face.. had to try it out

This is my first time trying out nail art design !! I'm sure you guys can see my many imperfections but i'm getting better! :D I was so excited i just wanted to show you guys what i did.

Do let me know what you think of it!! Do you like nail art??

Thanks for stopping by!

Jordana Lipstick Review (True red and Radiant red)

Hello my dolls, so over the weekend, i decided to go hunting for a cheaper alternative red lipstick to substitute with my high end lipsticks. Frankly, as much as i love them, i dont like to wear them all the time so i decided to go hunting and i found not one but two lipsticks from the same brand.

The lipsticks i will be reviewing are from Jordana cosmetics in the shades  077True Red and 105Radiant Red. When i got to the store/ was going through the lipsticks on the Jordana stand, i noticed that they do have quite a few red lipsticks, but i decided to pick these two up because they looked so bright from the case.

Radiant red, True Red 

Swatches below...

Radiant red , True red

Radiant red is more true to color than TRUE RED!! To get this level of color pay off, i had to swatch the lipsticks about three to four times.

Radiant red, True red, MAC Russian red

I swatched the lipsticks beside MAC's Russian red to show their level of pigmentation. Radiant red is closer to  Russian red (just a tad bit brighter) while True red is more creamy with less color pay off. The lipsticks where N500 each so i guess i get what i paid for with these.

Would i recommend? YES! They are a good buy if you want to spend your money on a lipstick thats not too expensive or you want a cheaper alternative to the high end lipsticks for everyday use.
  Do any of my dolls have any of the Jordana lipsticks in other colors?? Do let me know what colors you have and would recommend? I kinda like these though.. :)

TOP 10 Mac Lipsticks

Hi my dolls! I hope everyone is having a great weekend! so today i will be sharing with you my top 10 Mac lipsticks(for now). I have been a huge fan of Mac cosmetics for a very long time and i especially love their lipsticks. Call me corny but i believe they all have different personalities and i absolutely love their funky names ;D... Over time i have come to acquire quite a few of them and shortlisting down to ten was a bit of a task but i did it.... So no more rambling.... MEET THE BAD GURLS ;D

angel,freckletone,shygirl,vegasvolt,impassioned,vivaglamnicki,up the amp,girl about town,pink nouveau, ruby woo
This is a soft, pale, pink lipstick that is a frost finish. It is light,creamy and glossy with no frosty look to it actually. I got this lippie for a reason most of us already know. This happens to be KIM KARDASHIAN'S favourite mac lipstick and i just had to get it and i love it as well.;D I apply this lightly cuz it can look a little to light on my skin tone but i know how to work with it.
This is a peachy nude lippie and also a lustre finish. Freckletone is very glossy and moisturizing on the lips and its one of those lipsticks i dont even need a mirror to apply.. For a lustre it is quite pigmented and with one or two layers of this your good. I usually wear this with a smokey eye.
This is described as a “creamy neutral coral beige” and has a Cremesheen finish. It’s a soft beige peach with a hint of pink. Shygirl is very creamy and moisturizing on the lips and also one of mac's top seling lipsticks. I also love to wear this with a smokey eye or bronze/coppery eyes.
This is described as a brightened orange-coral with a creamy, opaque finish.This is an amplfied finish which means it is very pigmented and packs a lot of color. It is a full coverage, intense color that definitely brightens the face as well and works particularly well on warmer skin tones.  My sister got this for me by accident and i fell in love with this anyways as i was gettig into coral/orangey lippies at the time. Ladies if you looking for that coral, This is SHE!! ;D
This is described as a nearly neon pink-red with a hint of coral warmth. It has an amplified creme finish. It is creamy and applies smoothly on the lips.When i first got this i was afraid to wear this out of the house because i thought it was a bit too bright and then i wore it out one day and got so much compliments and ive been hooked ever since. It brightens up the whole face instantly with just one swipe. I like to wear this with a super winged eyeliner.
This is described as a vibrant medium pink with subtle yellow undertones that gives a kiss of coral. It has a satin finish, which means it has a semi-matte finish. I am a huge fan of Nicki Minaj and didnt pick up PINK FRIDAY because that lipstick was just o_o...*PAUSE*... Anyways this was a gift from a friend and i ABSOLUTELY LOOOOOVE THIS! Just one swipe and ur lips are poppin! I try not to go too crazy with the eyes when i wear this. It looks good on everyone so if you ever wanted to get this liptick and though twice you dont have to worry go get urs ...BARBIE!! ;) haha
This is described as a creamy, opaque purple with a bit of reddish-violet tones to it. It is an amplified finish and a very sexy "out of the ordinary" color. I always get loads of compliments whenever i wear this and i would definitely recommend to anyone on the hunt for a great purple lipstick. 
This is described as  a vibrant shade of darkened, bright fuchsia pink. It has an amplified creme finish, which makes it a very creamy, opaque shade. This has to be one of Mac's most popular lipsticks and i was drawn to it firstly for the name and then the color..:D It is suitable on all skintones and i like to wear this with blue or purple smokey eyemakeup.
This is described as a cool-toned, blue-based light-medium pink. It is also a satin finish. Pink nouveau was the first pink lipstick i got from MAC and i absolutely love it. It is a great balance between Saint germain(which i want so badly but know to stay away from) and girl about town.  It is very pigmented and can be a little bit drying after a while so pls prep ur lips before swipping this on ladies..Overall it is a beautiful, bright,barbie doll
This is described as a blue-based red with a matte finish and nearly opaque color coverage. This has to be Mac's best selling lipstick of all time.I dont know any mac addict that desnt own this.  It’s a very retro "throwback" red if i may say.The staying power is great and i love to wear this with nude eyemakeup.
I must inform you my loves that this lipstick is very DRYING and somewhat hard to apply. Be sure to exfoliate your lips and use and prep them before applying.

can you guess which is which?? :D i also threw in one last swatch there, can u guess which?
Thats it dolls! My top 10 Mac lipsticks. I promise to do an updated favourites cuz im pretty sure they will change soon.So what are your favourite mac lippies? Do let me know in the comments below.
Hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as i loved making it.
