Nyx Shadows and Softa Matte lippies

I have grown to love Nyx. Their products are for me high end at a very reasonable price.

I bought the three on “Black Friday” at Clicks Sandton City. It was the buy 3for2 special. You take three pay two the cheapest one is free. It was a bargain!

The soft matte lip creams are amazing. I am so inlove.  Unlike most matte lippies these are self explanatory. They are soft matte and don’t dry out my lips.

Amazing colours to choose from and they reatail for R149

The “Full Throttle” eyeshadows have become one of my favourite shadows in my shadows collection.

Depending on what sort of lookyou want to achieve. The colours can accomodate a simple day look and also a dramatic night out type of look. Very pigmented and last longer.

Retailing for R179.

Till next time my Cliques,

Kryolan~ Eyeshadows

Maybelline~ Volum Express Mascara

Catrice~ Eyebrow filler

3ina pronounced Mina, Highlighter in warm gold

I love trying out new brands. 3ina was launched in South Africa in August 2016 their shop is at Eastgate Mall.

The brand has a variety of lovely make-up products. I bought a few of them which really are as good as some high end products.

I have had the highlighter for two months now and I must say I am really impressed. The pigmentation is  amazing, a little goes a long way unless of course you want that extra glow.

The warm gold is perfect for all skin types. I have used it on a few clients and they also loved it.

You wont believe how much  this amazing highlighter is…… R229.95



My Crown

I have been growing my natural afro for two years now. The first year felt like a very long daunting job and I would just put a weave on, braid or do some cornrows just saw I don’t get to twist and plait every evening. 

Fast Forward to 2016 my hair Is more out than never before. I am learning to take care of it, nurture it and love it more. I think the more it grows the more I fall inlove with it. I am no longer a lazy natural, I don’t mind twisting every evening. 

And it just gives “That thing”.  I will post the products I use and I use them soon. 

Though there is a misconception that, natural girls feel more African that weaved girls. You know what, I am African whether in a weave, braids or natural hair. I am not my hair.

It all comes down to self-love.

Happy Friday!

New Faves

My latest purchase. So far I have used the Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick and the Essence Mascara. 

Rough Edition Velvet lipstick in Colour “09-Happy Nude Year”

I am so obsessed with matte finishes lately and they are in….so ya.  I love the soft matte finish and long lasting effect. It comes at a very reasonable price of R179 at Clicks.
