Africa Organics Marula Shampoo

Not my favourite shampoo

I was quite keen to give this shampoo a try as it says that it is suitable for normal or oil hair. As my hair can get a bit oily, I though it would maybe control the oil – unfortunately this was not the case. As the shampoo has a biodegradable foaming agent (yay for the environment), I found that it didn’t foam as much as I am used to with a shampoo, so I didn’t really feel like it was cleaning my hair properly. I am sure this shampoo will work for others, but I do not think I will be repurchasing it.

Africa Organic Marula Conditioner

Mediocre conditioner

After trying (and disliking) the shampoo, I was skeptical as to whether or not the conditioner would be any better. I found it provided sufficient moisture to my hair and it did make it smell fresh. My hair isn’t too dry though and I do feel that this would sufficiently nourish really dry hair. All in all it is a good conditioner, I am just not sure if it is my fave!

Bourjois Mega Liner

Great for eyeliner newbies

When it comes to liquid eyeliners, I have a long checklist & very few eyeliners have been able to meet my expectations. That was until the Bourjois Mega Liner came along.

The shape of the nib makes application so easy! Even a liquid eyeliner beginner would be able to create the perfect feline flick with this beauty!

The colour pay off is also really great & I always get 8hrs plus wear from it.

If there is one beauty product you should add to your collection, it’s this one! I wouldn’t be able to live without mine.

Kevin Murphy Hair Oil

Best hair oil!

I was so happy when I heard Kevin Murphy would be launching in South Africa & I waited with baited breath for the products to arrive. The more I learn about the brand, the more I love them! Not only are they cruelty free, but they are also sulphate free and paraben free!

I recently got the Young.Again Infused Treatment Oil & it is AMAZING! Not only does it smell great, but it leaves my hair feeling healthier and looking shinier than any other hair oil I have used.

I use it on towel dried hair & then style as usual & I am always amazed how healthy my hair looks after I have used it. I am looking forward to trying more products in the range, next up will definitely be their Body.Builder Volumising Mousse!

Mavala Protective Base Coat

Miracle base coat

Since discovering this base coat, I have not used anything else – it is that good. It applies smoothly and dries almost instantly to provide the perfect base for any nail lacquer. I find that my nail polish lasts an extra 2 to 3 days without chipping when I use this base coat. It is a bit pricey, but it is a worth while investment!

Clarins Eye Quartett Mineral Palette

’13 Skin Tones’ – new ladylike collection

I was recently lucky enough to try the new shade in the Clarins Eye Quartett Mineral Palette range, ’13 Skin Tones’. I am so impressed with this eyeshadow. While the other shades in the range are obviously gorgeous, the new palette includes shades that I will wear often.

The Palette offers a range of 4 brown eyeshadows that are the not too cool & also not too warm. I find that some cool tones can make me look washed out, but these shades have just the right amount of warm tones in them to create the perfect brown smokey eye.

I am particularly impressed with the formula. Using my own make-up brushed (I’m not a fan of palette sponges!), the eyeshadow applied smoothly with almost no falling shadow.

I have particularly oily eyelids, so in order to get a full days wear from the shades, I do need to use an eyelid primer. If you’re in the market for a new neutral eyeshadow palette, this ones for you!
