Hask Vial

A life saver!

Two years ago, I dyed my dark brown, almost black hair, a copper colour. I dyed it with box dye, and after doing it for a year, it really fried my hair. My hair started to look awful, as dying it that many shades lighter, is not good for hair in the long-run.

Desperate for something to help my hair, I bought this vial of argan oil. Don’t be mislead by how small the container is, this product lasted me a number of months. You only have to apply a coin size in your hands, rub them together (as the heat of your hands helps activate the product) and then rub it into your hair, focusing on the ends and avoiding the roots.

This worked so well to help my hair retain moisture, so it didn’t look crazy. It also helps before straightening your hair or blow-drying, as it protects the hair against the heat.

Highly recommend.

Inglot Duraline

Incredibly Versatile

I bought this product after my makeup artist friend used it on me for a photo shoot. I immediately fell in love with it, as I saw how versatile it was, and what good quality it was. I was especially intrigued that one could rehydrate slightly dry potted eyeliners.

It lasts very long, as I used an eye shadow with it and the eye shadow lasted the whole day and didn’t crease. It intensifies the eye shadow colour so much, and is perfect for loose pigments (which I have quite a lot of). You can pretty much make eyeliners out of your eye shadows, you can make lipsticks from your eye shadows and you can make dried out potted eyeliners more liquidy for application.

It will last you so long, as it has a dropper, and you only use a tiny bit.

Eylure Permanent Tint For Eyes

More Defined Brows

I bought this, not because I wanted to have my brows change dramatically, but I just wanted some of my brow hairs to be the same colour, as some are lighter.

I wasn’t blown away by this product, as I didn’t notice a huge difference, but it did make my brows look quite nice and neat and defined. I took the darkest shade they had, as my hair is almost black and so are my eyebrow hairs.

Perhaps this product would be best suited for people with much lighter hairs, as I didn’t notice a major difference, which is disappointing.

The product lasts about 3 weeks on my brows. I doubt I’ll be repurchasing.


Good for everyday

I tried this product out for everyday moisturising and slight coverage. This product does exactly that. When trying this product out, don’t freak out that it may come out of the tube quite orange. It blends really well onto my skin tone, however I’m not sure if it will be the same for everyone. As far as I remember, there weren’t any other skin tone tints, but the one, which sucks.

It removes light discolouration on your skin, but don’t expect high coverage, as it is just a tint. It is incredibly moisturising and I only apply it once in the morning.

Batiste Dry Shampoo Original

Best friend if you have bangs

This product is one of my holy grail products. I have incredibly fine hair, so it gets oily pretty fast, and you can see the oil more easily in my hair. I also have a fringe, so it tends to collect oil from my forehead and pretty much each time you touch it. Batiste is the best product for my hair, as it leaves it looking clean and bouncy. It’s great to put on my fringe because then it looks great all day, which is awesome.

The Clean & Classic scent is the first one I ever used, as I generally go for very fresh scents.

It lasts pretty much the whole day, which is great for summer months, or even winter, when the moisture is high in the air and your hair starts to look a bit tatty.

I have repurchased this product so many times already, and am slowly working through the different scents.

Glow Bronzing Pearls

Let it GLOW

I love this product as I feel it looks incredibly natural and realistic. I use this product more in the summer time, if I’m going out or doing something that might require photo’s during the day.

I was so confused as to how to use the product, but I quickly found out that gliding a contour brush over the pearls works really well at picking up product. I would suggest using a light hand when applying this, as it can put a lot of product onto the face, which would then need to be blended out very well. I feel this is really worth it, as it will last a long time. If you brush one of the balls, the product is even more intense and you can get a very strong bronzed glowey look.
