Luscious Seductive

Thank to BSA – awarding me the opportunity to sample the Matte Mii Lipstick. At first glance while looking at the applicator (casing), my first impression was that it’s nothing fancy or captivating that would attract me to buy the product if I had seen this in store. I have not heard of Mii Cosmetics until now. But wow, smitten after my second week. Velvety, rich creamy, matte, perfect colour blend, smooth polished finish.

No lip liner required (it defines your lips), no bleeding lipstick over lips & teeth, no smudges when eating or drinking. Entire day wear, no touch-up needed like some other lipstick brand. The saying is, “Dynamite comes in small packages”. The unveiling of the mystery package finally revealed the perfect enchanting Matte Lipstick. Price range approx R315.00 (expensive). But great in long term and it’s long-lasting. Definite value for money.

Perfect Finish

I purchased the color toast. What’s interesting you have two-in-one product. The concealer worked well for my dark circles round my eye. Compact makeup cream blended evenly as foundation. Creamy velvety texture. Completed with the Revlon Powder- Perfect match.

Perfect Matte

Revlon Ultra Matte Red. Applicator (brush ) glides easily. At first I was reluctant. When applied it looked like runny liquid gloss and after a few seconds, transformed my lips into a matte finish. Impressive, I didn’t have to retouch my lips for the next 6 hours.

Essie Summer Collection 2015


Adorn the pastel creamy milky lane array of colours. The texture is smooth and velvety. What I like about the product is the transparent colour that you view on the package is exactly the same colour when applied on your nails. Although pricey, worthwhile to invest in a good nail polish like Essie.

Essie Spring Collection 2015

Excellent/Milky Land

The Essie Spring collection is awesome pastel flowery range.The soft colors remind me of the flow of creamy milk shades. The burst of Spring colours gives my nails a perfect manicure like I have just stepped out from the nail bar. Long lasting. The Peach side babe is one of my favorite colours and the Fringe Factor is the cherry on the top that gives your nail opulent classic finish.

Gently Does It Face Wipes

Branding – Unappealing

I have used various brands of facial wipes. If i came across Dirty Wipes on the shop isles I would not consider the brand to the other products. The name Dirty Brands itself, packaging is unappealing. Even though the product may be good!! the packaging will not attract my attention.
