MAKEUP LOOK: PINK INDULGENCE

Hi guys,

So yesterday i was feeling myself. Reaaaly feeling myself and i wanted to do a makeup look to match my mood!! Seriously ooooo!! My skin was looking great and i hadn't worn makeup in a few days.....Trust me to whip out the makeup stash and get to playing. 

 Now there is this eyeshadow from Urban decay that i had been dying to use. It is called "Junkshow" and it is a beautiful irridescent pinky/purple color. It looked like the perfect eye shadow to go with my Bolwin Hedonism lipgloss and i decided to do a little matchy matchy and put them to work. PINK OVERDOSE!!

WHEN I SAY I WAS FEELING MYSELF....lmaooooo
WEARING ZARON LIPGLOSS IN COTTON CANDY

Now does this happen to me alone or not? I can never seem to wear just one lip color when i do a makeup look. I grab about two or three colors and i can't make up my mind on  what look to settle on. They always look great and match the look so i decided to throw in a pic of another color i wore with this look.

REVIEW: ELIE SAAB LE PARFUM

Hi guys,

I have another perfume review. This one is from Elie saab and i am honestly struggling to express how much i love this perfume. Let me give a little description culled online.

Radiant, voluptuous, addictive.
The top note opens on a sun-kissed, radiant orange blossom, as an ode to light.
The middle note develops into a jasmine absolute, a legendary flower in perfumery, imparting voluptuousness and elegance to the fragrance. It combines with a pure, modern patchouli heart.
The base note unfolds into a cedar woody accord adding character and a lingering trail, while the honey rose envelops the composition in a beautifully addictive note... BLA BLA BLAAAH!!

Top notes: African orange flower
Heart notes: Jasmine
Base notes: White honey, cedar, rose, patchouli

I picked up this perfume after getting a whiff of it at duty free.It wasn't sweet or musky. It smelt so sensual and womanly.It is super long lasting and i always get tons of compliments when i wear this. If you choose scents to go with occasions this would be more night time appropriate even though i wear this all day everyday if i want.

THE BOONBOX MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION BOX REVIEW

 Hi Everyone,
I have a review of a fun new way to try out great products at an equally great price. Ever since i got into the whole beauty business i have seen tons of reviews of beauty boxes online and i was super excited when i found out the beauty boon was starting theirs. I think this is the first company introducing this to Nigeria. Go BeautyBoon!!!

I love to try out new beauty products but i don't always want to fork out a lump sum of money for a product i'm not too sure about. Beauty boon provides a monthly subscription that provides you with 1 full size and 4-5 sample or deluxe samples of  personalized beauty and grooming products they have in their stock. 

You can choose one of their two subscription options. N5000 (monthly) or N19000 (quarterly).Feel free to choose whichever suits your pocket.

To get started, you will have to log on to the beauty boon site and fill out a little questionnaire/beauty profile which is intended to feed them info on your likes and generally get to know what your beauty wants/ needs are. Now this questionnaire is very in depth and a little lenghty but i was really impressed with how much they put into compiling it. It sure aided them in sending me some cutesy stuff.

 In my "BOOMBOOM BOX"..LOL ..I was sent  the following

Almay eye makeup remover
Civant Eye complex
Thierry Mugler Angel Perfume
The Body shop Tea tree face mask
Dr Browners Magic soap


These dark circles look like they are here to stay..I don't know how i developed them under my eyes. I'M TOO YOUNG!! LOL..Now for puffiness and bags, i blame that on little sleep. I don't get enough sleep and sometimes i force myself to get some shut eye. This product comes in handy for the rough days and over time will help sort out my under eye wahala.
Now this perfume was one of my mum's favourites. The smell is so distinct and mature.I am a huge perfume lover and i love to try out new scents. Little sample sizes are also great to intensify or switch up your scent during the day. Love it.
Taking off makeup should be as easy as applying it.(well its super easy for me). I really like how this takes off eye makeup in one swipe.The container is also super cute. Also,this is the first almay product i have tried. This beauty box will give you access to new brands or brands you never really paid attention to. Even more reason to subscribe.

Overall, i was happy with my boonbox .What do you guys think of the service? I would advise you get into it ladies. Its a cheap and fun way to try out great products and i love the element of surprise of it all because you don't know what you are going to receive. Might just be that item you have been longing for...

REVIEW: YVESSAINTLAURENT BELLE DE OPIUM

Hi Guys,

I love perfumes. I love how a perfume can change your mood, especially perfumes bottles.. Be it a girly or a mature scent, there is something for everyone. Recently i got a ton of perfumes that where very different from what i would normally buy. I must state that i am a very flowery /fruity perfume kind of girl. I like to smell fresh and sweet. I wanted to get some more mature perfumes  or just something to wear when i want to smell more "womanly".

What YSL says: Belle d`Opium is the new addiction by Yves Saint Laurent; a fragrance that is a disconcertingly bewitching new oriental. A woman who wears it is full of ambivalence, elusive and obsessive, powerful and troubling, ingenue but dangerous.



So this perfume has Top notes of mandarin, Casablanca lily, gardenia, jasmine. Heart: incense, peach, white pepper, tobacco, hookah accord, fruity notes. Base notes: amber, sandalwood, patchouli, smoky notes. Honestly i just threw this in there for people who want to know. I honestly don't know or care what is in a perfume i just like to know how it makes me feel when i spray it on. I'm not allergic to anything as well.


First of all...Did anyone see the AD for this?? Now it inspired me to get this one. The bottle is also really beautiful. A beautiful perfume bottle just does it for me.This scent is for a  sensual, mature woman. When i sprayed this i just fell in love .This perfume is not too strong or too sweet. It's not too dark or spicy. I must say the staying power of this is not too great. I didn't like that at all. I have to reapply during the day when i can't smell myself. 

Overall, nice perfume. Grown up but not too grown up. Sexy, sweet and sensual.

REVIEW: AVEENO POSITIVELY RADIANT SKIN BRIGHTENING SCRUB

Hi Guys,
My skin regimen is very important to me but sometimes i get lazy.I know i'm not the only one this happens to. Might be the products i use, or i have a cumbersome routine that i'm too tired to perform when i get back from work.

Up until recently, i was doing a very lenghty routine with more products than my face could handle daily. I got this aveeno brightening face scrub and i decided to give it a try.

WHAT AVEENO SAYS:Helps improve skin tone, texture and clarity to reveal brighter, more radiant skin.This daily scrub helps improve skin tone, texture and clarity. Its unique formula combines ACTIVE NATURALS® moisture-rich soy extract with microbeads to gently exfoliate while you cleanse, leaving your skin looking luminous. It’s also oil free, soap free, noncomedogenic, hypoallergenic and gentle enough for everyday use, even on sensitive skin.

DAZZLEBEAUTIE: This stuff is great. I have been using it for two months and i love how it feels on the skin. It has micro beads in it which helps with exfoliation and my face felt smoother. I have gotten through half of the tube and i must say my face looks great. I only use this and my clearasil face wash because i wanted to cut down on using so many products and not knowing what's working and whats causing my skin to go crazy. It doesn't feel harsh  on the skin too. Overall this is a nice product. I will keep using and will definitely repurchase. 

Anyone ever used this scrub or any product from Aveeno? I would like to explore.
