PRODUCT REVIEW: MODEL IN A BOTTLE LONG LASTING EYEBROW SEALER

Hey everyone, It’s my first official product review today*drum roll……..* lol So today, I am doing a review on the “MODEL IN THE BOTTLE EYEBROW SEALER” I was watching a youtube video about 2 weeks ago……. I can’t even remember who’s video it was or what it was about *sigh* pardon me ….I do a lot of youtube looool. Anyway, the person whom I was watching lol, used this product and talked about the product. Knowing how scanty my brows are, coupled with the fact that I touch my face a lot, (even though I know I’m not supposed to, I’m just addicted to it. But I always have my hand sanitizer with me *GRIN*) basically, in less than 2 hours my brows are messed up. Even the use of mascara does not really help ME. So while in the process of watching her, (still can’t remember her name….. lol) she mentioned it and immediately I went on to find out more about the product (yea I am like that…..:) ) I decided to order …

Product Of The Week: L’Oreal Infallible Lipstick

Hey guys! So I saw this new l’oreal lipstick ad, and YES!!!!!! Beyonce’ (my obsession *fluttering eyelashes*) is the face of the product hehehehehehe (Lemme be honest, that was the real reason I was watching the advert in the first place lol). Anyway, L’Oreal’s Infallible Lip Color is my first foray into longwear lipsticK. I was going to get a MAC Prolongwear when it first came out but it was out of stock at the time and my interest kind of died at that point.

Product Review: New Maybelline “The Falsies – Big Eyes Mascara”!

Hey everyone, it’s me again Kristabel how y’all doing? I would like to share some reviews on the new maybelline mascara. It’s called “MAYBELLINE FALSIES BIG EYES MASCARA” it comes in black and they have it in waterproof and washable. I’m currently in America and the advert is all over the television.. to say the truth, I’m tempted to buy….. But then I love to do my research first before I spend my money on any product..just so I don’t go regretting it later and I would advise every one of you to do the same I mean, its just a wise thing to do lol.

VIDEO: PRODUCT REVIEW IMATS LONDON 2013 HAUL BY WAYNE GOSS

Hey everyone it’s me Kristabel again!!!!! So the IMATS (international makeup artist trade show) event just ended some few days ago, and one of my favourite makeup artists “wayne goss” did a review on some of the products he got at the event. I love his reviews because I find him to be quite honest with his opinions, basically I just feel he says it as it is irrespective of the brand. So for those who missed the event like me (Lola got to go but I’m in the wrong town.. oh the pain of it), here’s the video by gossmakeupartist watch it and let me know what you think! We’ll be posting our own review next week, stay tuned!

Love it Or Loath it: Product Review – Dove Silky Nourishment Body Lotion, Shimmer Effect

I love soft skin and anything that promises silky softness will capture my interest. I had been seeing a Dove advert about their beauty bar which asks the women to ‘Dare to bare’ which means go without makeup. It promises skin that is moisturized from deep within to reveal that natural glow while leaving your skin soft as silk (Ok…Ok… I added the ‘soft as silk part’ I think they just said softer skin). Usually I’m skeptic about such promises from a soap, a lotion- I can buy but a soap?! When my sister went on to buy half a dozen of the Dove Beauty Soap with a radiant glow promise and decided that she didn’t like it, I ended up with the lot. I thought, no harm done; I needed soap anyways. The first thing that struck me when I used it for the first time is the sweet floral scent that stays on several hours after you’ve had a bath; I would wake up in the middle of the night mesmerized by my …

Love it or Loath it: Product Review – Gillette Venus vs Venus Breeze

By Odun Ogunbiyi Hellooooooo my lovelies. It’s me again.. and yes.. I’m still off on sunny shores enjoying my extended break (I prefer to call it a beauty fact finding mission although it could technically be classed as a Holiday). I’ve¬†diligently¬†been keeping my eyes peeled on behalf of our Sacred Angels and yet again, I’m taking one for the team and reporting on some new products on the market.  

Monday Moodlift Giveaway: The Kinky Apothecary Giveaway

Hellooo my¬†lovelies! We’re back again with our¬†“Monday Moodlift” and we’re ready to carry on spreading the love. This week’s giveaway will stimulate your senses and offer some very much needed TLC to your crowing mane of glory. Your hair that is.. ūüėÄ The Kinky Apothecary is the First one stop shop dedicated to natural hair care. It’s surprising how little alot people actually know about taking care of unprocessed hair. Even trained hairdressers can sometimes fall short in this area because so many people opt to straighten their hair in order to make it more managable. Even those wearing weaves & braids relax their hair before putting it back (on the same day) into their every day styles to protect it from damage (btw.. this school of thought makes no sense, only those bits which are being left out should be relaxed in order to blend, if you so choose). The Kinky Apothecary is on a mission to educate and provide support for those who wish to truly look after their natural hair regardless of …
