This post was supposed to go up early this morning, but how i managed to push it till this time... only God 'nose'.
So how have you all been? Great i hope.
I've been thinking about changing the 'Look' of my blog. I'm someone who is very set in her ways and i resist change a lot *looool!* . I really love the warm look my blog already has, but i've been thinking that it's time i gave the blog a new look.....i mean after over 1.2 million page views, it's very well-deserved!
So do you think i should change it or not? Please let me know in the comment section below.
Now, on to the business of the day......
Early this year, i went out and got myself new makeup products. You all know that i'm sooooo used to my MaryKay foundation....I've used it in practically every look and pictorial i've done on this blog.....infact, it's the only foundation i've ever used. People underrate Marykay foundations a lot *perhaps because it's not expensive*, but you better believe that it's one of the best foundations out there!
The only reason why i went in search of a different foundation that day was because i was tired of mixing two foundations to get my perfect shade, and so i ended up buying the BlackUp Mattifying Fluid Foundation in the shade 'NFL 08'.
BlackUp says :
"A new improved formula for a matte finish upon application and 8 hours long lasting hold. Medium coverage, very natural makeup result, the BlackUp mattifying fluid foundation reduces excess sebum and visibly reduces pore size for a flawless complexion all day long. Oil free, paraben free, and fragrance free. Tested under dermatological control."
Ok, i really like this foundation for reasons i will state below...
It blends easily and smoothly into the skin.
It has a very good coverage.....they stated medium coverage on the pack, and it does that really well.
It has a matte finish *Once, i forgot to set it with powder after i was done applying it, but it wasn't apparent at all....you would think i wore powder*.
It indeed gives a flawless complexion when you are done with the application.
It dries quickly.
It lasts long on the face.
I also like the fact that the product is dispensed through a pump......a very effective pump i might add, because when you press once, it dispenses the perfect amount of product that would be sufficient for a full face coverage.
The pump also ensures that you don't waste the product because with it, you can actually control the amount of foundation that comes out of the bottle.
I'm certain that a bottle will last over a year.
Why my hand is looking like burnt jollof rice in that picture, Chinazor does not know.
WHERE TO BUY..
In other news, something hilarious happened this morning. I took Mish to the market *her very first time*.
When i told her that she would go with me to the food market, she shouted "Yes!" with excitement, so we got ready, and off we went.
That's how we got there oooooo, and when we were about to enter the meat section of the market and she saw dead roasted goats laying on their backs on the butchers tables, Mish grabbed my hand and started pulling me back towards the car.
"Mummy NOOOOOO! Let's goooooooo! I don't want to seeeeeee!".
Hian! What is 'doing' this one?
"Munachi, we are already here, we can't leave without buying anything, and i need to buy meat"
"Nooooo mummmyyyyyy! I don't want" She was close to tears.
That's how some market women burst out laughing. I was also bent over with laughter but the poor baby was visibly traumatized. I managed to calm her down, but she refused to enter that section till i carried her. She was trembling all over but i had to buy meat biko!
While we waited for our meat to be cut into pieces, she whispered in my ear "Mummy, let's go to the supermarket where they sell cornflakes and clothes" *loooooool!*
It was only after we left the meat section that she became normal again, but it was not a fun experience for her at all. She has told me that she doesn't want to go there with me ever again, but that's a big lie.....from now henceforth, we are in it togerrrra!
