Show 'n Tell | Faux Mink No 14 Eyelashes

I love lashes.

I'm a sucker for long full lashes. For me, it's the fuller...the better!

So last week, i was scrolling through my blackberry contacts updates when i saw these lashes. Cheechee had displayed these very beautiful lashes on her DP, and i couldn't just scroll past.

How could i just scroll past? Look at them!

I pinged her immediately to ask if they were available and for how much. She told me, an i placed my order for delivery the very next day.

They were delivered, and i just love them. Look how long, full and lush they are!

Hello babes......

The thing about makeup products , tools, and makeup application methods is that they keep evolving. There are always new trends to keep up with. Remember when there was the ‘Ben Nye banana powder’ and the ‘Sacha buttercup setting powder’ rave? Then came the craze about ‘baking’ our faces. The Beauty Blender sponge also came out and everyone just had to have it…now, it’s the SiliSponge!

The Molly Cosmetics brand in Hong-Kong created the SiliSponge, and it has sold out and re-stocked about 8 times already! It is made out of silicone, and it is cruelty-free and paraben-free.

The first time i saw a video of the Silisponge on Instagram, i thought it was very silly. I think i even hissed out loud sef, but then, i went ahead and bought one for the sake of a review for my loyal blog readers.

·         I expected the sponge to be bigger than it actually is, but it’s quite small and fits into the palm of my hand.

·         It’s not actually a sponge, so I don’t understand why it’s called that. Isn’t a sponge supposed to soak in products? This one doesn’t do that, so it’s not exactly a sponge.

·         It is really smooth and bouncy.  The silicone is inside while the outer part is made of thermoplastic polyurethane which is a flexible plastic that is resistant to oil and grease.

B 'n D Makeover | New year's look

Ok, that's a lie.....

It's a Christmas look, but i had to choose between this one and that one i posted on Christmas day. That other one won, but i didn't want to waste this one, so let's just pretend that it's the new year's look shall we?

Thank you...

This is probably the makeover post with the smallest number of pictures i have ever published. What? Only three?! *looool*.

That day, i had finished the first look with gold eyelids and green waterlines and i had finished taking pictures, so i decided to do this other green one. All i had to do was pack green eyeshadow on top of the gold one. That's why you can see the gold peeking out from underneath the green in the picture.....i think the effect is gorgeous!

PRODUCT REVIEW | Hegai & Esther foundation and powder

We are already 4 days into the year, and i haven't really gone out of my way to wish anyone a happy new year..... Oh, i'm cool with everyone, it's just laziness *loool!*.

Happy 2017 everyone!!!!!

So for a long time now, ever since there was a mass production (fakes) of  my beloved Marykay foundations, i began the search for another good foundation. I got BlackUp which was of course very good but also quite expensive, so i had to search further. I got Milani which i didn't really like the finishing so my search wasn't quite over.

Imagine my joy when Hegai & Esther announced the launch of their foundations and other makeup products. I was joyful and very hopeful because hey, it was Hegai & Esther! The makers of the wonderful Hegai & Esther brow i had a feeling that this was it!

For the benefit of those who don't know, Hegai & Esther is a Nigerian brand......a popular Nigerian brand. They recently launched a line of makeup products. Prior to that, they were mainly known for producing and selling tools for makeup and tools that promote makeup hygiene.
