Salmaa Moosa


Gold Status




Could work for people with curls

I would say this product is very flimsy, if not opened with care it could spill all over. It smells exactly like coconut, which can get a bit too overbearing when going places. the texture is smooth and can be easily applied into the hair. Only problem i found was that i don’t have naturally curly hair and i had applied it to my dry hair which it then made very oily! However after I washed my hair, it was soft and had a great shine! I do believe this product has potential for people with curly hair. I would not purchase this or recommend anyone with fairly straight/wavy hair to try this.

Wonderful Product!

The packaging of this product is really pretty, and it seems to open up easily. I was extremely pleased with this mascara as it does an amazing job. I love that it has a little tip which makes applying mascara to the smaller lashes so much easier! I have very fine lashes and its a struggle finding something that gives me a fuller and bolder look. After trying this mascara once, I got hooked on it and have been using it ever since! It gives my lashes a thicker (without clumping) and bolder look and the tip allows me to reach my tiny lashes which are close to my tear ducts. I would repurchase this within a heartbeat!

I love this!!

I was really impressed with this little bottle of magic! It smells SO good, I would be lying if i said I wasn’t tempted to taste it. The bottle is tiny but strong and can be easily used in the shower, without messing everywhere. i also found that a little goes a long way. It foams up and makes it easy to apply. I would recommend this product to everyone, the fresh orange fragrance really leaves you smelling incredible! The reason I didn’t give it a 5 star rating is because I found that the price was a bit high for something you plan on using everyday, it would work out expensive in the long run. However, its definitely worth a try!!


Love how quick it dries

I was super impressed when I used the OPI brand, as i don’t have much time to sit and wait for it to dry up. To my surprise it dried up very quickly, and stayed on for a week long until I took it off. it comes in various colours & there’s definitely a colour for all. It actually looked as if i had it done professionally.

Mavala Jelly Effect Collection

Not for me

This nail polish is really cute, comes in a very compact size & fits almost anywhere. The colour that I used was ‘282, Happy Cherry’. It appears to be a metallic cherry before application.

The size and packaging is really great! Compact and strong. It’s a 5ml bottle. The texture is perfect, very easy to apply and the purpose of the product is to give it a translucent and long lasting effect, which I admit it certainly does do. This colour works for anyone of any age. The first coat is very subtle once applied, however the second coat enhances the colour much more as well as the shimmer. Works well in water and went well beyond a week without any chipping so that was a major plus.

The only problem I had with this item is that it’s a bit too translucent for me as an individual. I would recommend this if you prefer nail polish that has more of a transparent look, rather than colour. The price of R72 is a bit too much as it comes in a rather small bottle. I wouldn’t purchase this specific range of the Mavala brand, however I am keen on trying their opaque range as the quality is amazing.

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Gloss

Lipgloss that works as a lipstick!

This lipgloss is simply amazing! I have the colour ‘smoke me up’ and it’s absolutely gorgeous, it’s a cherry colour and when applied it actually looks like a lipstick. It’s super smooth on the lips and glides on easily, there’s absolutely no stickiness as well! however the applicator is a bit awkward but once you get the hang of it, it’s extremely easy to use!

It comes in a decent size and the packaging is very strong. I know this lipgloss made an impact on many others as I had people asking me what I had on. Infact, it’s the only gloss I’ve been wearing ever since I got it.

It also lasted me 3/4 of the day, (I even ate with it on) and I only had to reapply ONCE, later that day. The only problem I had was that it spreads beyond the line of your lip.

I would recommend it to people who prefer a matte look, without the drying effect. This was one of the reasons I love this lipgloss. No more chapped looking lips!

This is something I would definitely buy, as I am personally not a fan of lip glosses with a shine. This works wonderfully as a lipstick!

I would give it 4 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
