I love nail polishes and the colors available from this collection were to-die-for. The bottle itself is so cute and girly which caught my attention immediately. I love the cute little flowers and rita ora’s signature that was on it .The nail polishes are really opaque and they are so easy to work with. Since they are from the 60 seconds range , they dry really fast and i don’t have to worry about my manicure getting ruined.I have all the colors and they are all my favorite.I would purchase them again because they last really long and they look amazing on my nails. A definite must have for any lady.
amazing gel liner
I purchased this gel liner a while back in the shade ‘very black’. It is a very affordable gel liner and it came with a really cute brush which was an added bonus. The formula is creamy but it tends to drag on my skin when i apply it; with time i got used to it. I love that it dried to a matte finish and looked amazing although it was not the intense black that i was hoping for. The brush that it comes with is really good , it allows you to create a really fine line or even a thick line if you are going for a bold, dramatic look. After a while I found that the gel gets a bit dry so make sure to keep the lid sealed tightly.
Brun de folie 07
I received the Bourjois Little Round Pot Eyeshadow in the shade BRUN DE FOLIE 07 to review. It comes in a really gorgeous little compact and it includes a mirror. The eyeshadow is a sparkly grey with a ton of glitter. When i swatched it on my hand, it mostly showed silver glitter and the grey eyeshadow which was quite sheer and it looked like i had just rubbed glitter on my hand. Bourjois claims that this eyeshadow “has a luxurious cream to powder formula which is ultra- soft and easy to blend.” However i found that it was really hard to blend. I had to pack on a lot of product and even then it looked like i had nothing on. I even tried wetting my brush and applying the shadow but that didn’t help either. I would not be buying this product in the future or any other shades from this collection because i was really disappointed with this shade.
I received the Mavala Jelly Effect nail polish in the shade Jammy plum to review. It comes in a really cute 5ml bottle. Because it is a jelly effect nail polish the product is quite sheer. I love that it dries really fast which prevents any unwanted smudging. Once dried the nail polish is smooth to the touch and shiny. It lasts really long compared to other nail polishes that i have tried before. I’m not a huge fan of this collection because the shades are a bit to sheer and i prefer more opaque colors.
gorgeous multi-function product
I became obsessed with the mary-lou manizer ever since i started watching youtube make up tutorials so when Retail box had it on special , I just had to get my hands on it.
It comes in a gorgeous compact and it has a handy mirror which is an added bonus.The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer is such a gorgeous highlighter and it can be used as an eye shadow.It is definately worth the splurge because it is so pigmented , i love that i don’t need to pack on the product on my skin.Because of its honey hued tone it suites all skin types and is the perfect product for ‘strobing’ . I usually use it to highlight the top of my cheekbones or on the inner corners of my eyes.
Best cleanser i have ever come across !!
There has been so much hype regarding this product that i had to give it a try. Since i have sensitive skin i decided to try out the Garnier micellar cleansing water for sensitive skin. It comes in a huge bottle which is a big bonus and at an affordable price which is hard to resist especially if you are on a tight budget. I was really impressed with this product because it literally removes off all my makeup even the long wearing lipsticks and my waterproof eyeliners and mascaras. It is a handy product that i feel every women should have in her make up kit. I love that i don’t have to rub the dirt / make up off really hard, all you need is a gentle swipe which does the trick.I was really happy that it left no sticky residue on my skin after i used it and that my skin didn’t get dry. Overall this is an amazing product that i will buy again and again. It is definitely worth purchasing.
