Quick Dry & Beautiful

This is probably my favourite nail polish brand at the moment. It dries quickly, its easy to apply and it actually lasts more than a week without chipping off. The colours are amazing.

Apocalips Lip Lacquer

A Little Disappointed

Rimmel is one of my personal favourite brands because it’s affordable and it has some quality products. I bought the Apocalips Lip Lacquer at clicks, it was on sale but I couldn’t really use it mainly because of the shade. It just seems like a cheap lip gloss, but it is a creamy lacquer with that perfect shine. I use it when I’m doing ombre lips but it doesn’t last long.

Natural Hair Must

I’ve been using Dark and Lovely products for over 10 years now, so when I cut my hair and decided to go natural last year, I needed a product for my favourite hair brand that dealt with natural. I’m glad they released the Au Naturale range.

4A, 4B, 4C hair is known to shrink, I have 4C hair, so I wash and condition my hair regularly with Dark and Lovely mainly because it doesn’t have a lot of harmful chemicals and it leaves my hair soft and it makes it easier to comb through whether the hair is wet or dry.

Love, Love, Love

Avon Lipsticks are good quality lipsticks, very similar to the big name brand lipsticks. What I love about the Avon plumping lipstick is:

How easy it is to apply
How long it lasts without having to re-apply
The amazing sweet smell
and How it looks…!!!

Perfect, it also moisturizes my lips and doesn’t crack or leave them dry, at all!

Smooth Cream Blush

It feels really creamy and smooth when you apply it on your cheeks. I really love how easy they are to apply and how natural it looks without foundation but it doesn’t really last all day on my skin.

I honestly dislike the smell and how it looks when you use foundation, it slightly cracks my foundation.

It’s an ‘Okay’ cream blush but, I personally wouldn’t buy it.

Perfect L.A Highlights for any ‘Girl;

I’ve used this L.A Girl strobbing powder a lot more than I actually thought I could, I applied it during the week for a more natural looking glow without any foundation and it worked so perfectly, then I used it as dramatic highlighter (especially for the top of the cheek bone) and I must say it looked really good.

It’s soft and it blends really well depending on the type of brushing you using and the look you’re going for. In my opinion It’s a great highlighter and I think the shades work for all different skin tones. Great Product Overall!!!
