    Makeup products that I have been enjoying

    I started playing around with makeup again and I’m glad that I actually did. I got a chance to see what I like and what I need to throw away. Also, I discovered that I had a lot of expired makeup that I even forgot about. Anyways for this review I decided to select two products that I would usually grab onto when I leave the house and thought a lip product is a must and I also needed a product to create dimension to my face which a bronzer is perfect for. The Wet n Wild MegaLast Catsuit High-Shine Lipstick  is such an amazing product to have. It is…

    Pixi retinol toner – Not actually worth the buy.

    I have written a review about the product before but my thoughts on this has changed. Initially I had loved using this product but with continued use my skin didn’t quite react well. This product claims:It has time-release Retinol which is supposed to reduce fine lines and  smooth complexion. It also contains peptides to firm the skin and boost collagen production. It has jasmine flower which heals and balances. When I first started using this product my skin reacted well with it. I definitely felt my skin smoother and a slight glow to my complexion. This product can be used day and night but I only used this at night…

    So I was blogging for quite some time before I actually decided to go self-hosted. I felt like I needed to step up with my blogging and I felt it was a well needed change. Here’s my reasons why I decided to go self-hosted. 1.You have full control over your blog.I think this was one of the main reasons that I decided to go self-hosted.

    Sorbet long wear nail polishes-worth the buy?

    Sorbet has been a well established brand in South Africa and I’m quite shocked that I have only tried their nail products. I think the main reason that I was attracted to Sorbet’s nail polishes was because of their wide range of colors. They had the pastel and neutral colors that I’m always so attracted to. Apart from that, I’m always on the hunt for long lasting nail polishes. My take on the product : Firstly it has a square tip brush that takes some time to get used when compared to the usual oval shaped brushes that comes with nail polishes. The nail polish applies seamlessly onto the nails…
