RANT POST: GROUPON CONNED ME! MACADAMIA DEEP REPAIR HAIR MASQUE

Well, hello there. This was going to be an awesome review of the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque. But guess what? I can't review it because Groupon sent me a fake product. How did this happen? Grab some snacks and let me tell you a story. My bestie and fellow black haircare obsessive raved… Continue reading RANT POST: GROUPON CONNED ME!

Tame & Frame – NYX Brow Pomade

I swore I would never join the brow pomade revolution and I kept to my word until my NYX Micro Brow and bareMinerals brow pencils ran out and I had to make the trip to town. I've always used brow pencils and the Instagram brows that have exploded turned me off using brow pomades. My… Continue reading Tame & Frame – NYX Brow Pomade

If You Don’t Use Primers, You Should

Reasons you should use a primer: It will create a smooth base for makeup application. It will fill in any fine lines and make your makeup last longer. No more makeup fading away and getting patchy by midday. Your skin will feel velvety soft and your foundation will apply much nicer. You do need to… Continue reading If You Don’t Use Primers, You Should

The Glow Up – Bobbi Brown, Sleek MakeUP, L’oreal and Urban Decay Highlighters

I'm writing about highlighters today. Tis the season and all that. Just kidding, I'm not Pagan 😛 I do love a good highlight, though. I've been using the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze forever and it's mega old. But for a long time it went unused. Then Instagram arrived and hello highlighter obsession. I… Continue reading The Glow Up – Bobbi Brown, Sleek MakeUP, L’oreal and Urban Decay Highlighters

Coloured Raine Matte Lip Paints – Raine Fever

Over the last 2 months I have been exploring lipsticks and have become obsessed with liquid matte lipsticks. I bought the Kat Von D liquid lipstick in Damned but promptly returned that after the mini Instagram drama that revealed what a rude dismissive woman she is. Anyway, I discovered Coloured Raine. A black-owned cosmetics company… Continue reading Coloured Raine Matte Lip Paints – Raine Fever

Vice Lipstick in Disturbed When I heard Urban Decay was releasing 100 lipsticks I got very excited. I'm not a lipstick lover but I definitely wanted to explore the launch.
