Review | Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Wash

Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Wash  Revew

Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Wash 
Hey guys! Hope that your Wednesday is going great and is less confusing than mine. This morning I posted a picture on My Instagram and I tagged it #TuesdayMotivation other than #WednesdayMotivation luckily a friend pick it up before everyone else did. Okay, before I go off track again today I have a review for you the Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Wash. I bought the Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel in May and I didn't use it as I was finishing off some other product (I like to give products a try, I usually give some products a month or two to see if they do work). 
Garnier says that the gel wash "Targets imperfections, Awakens skin & tightens pores", first I will say that the gel wash smells so fantastically good, great job Garnier on the Grapefruit Pomegranate. I have been using the gel wash for six weeks now and I'm loving it, I like the fresh smell it leaves on my face after using it. 
The gel wash is for combination/oily skin even though I have dry skin it does not leave my face dry after use. A tiny squirt on a wet face with an emphasis on the forehead, nose and chin does the trick. The gel wash is for everyday use and like any other face product one should avoid eye contact. 
Overall the gel wash has been treating my skin well and no blemishes have been detected so far. 
I hope that you have enjoyed the review!!!

Review | NOTD Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Longwear Nail Enamel Checkmate

 Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Longwear Nail Enamel Checkmate

 Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Longwear Nail Enamel Checkmate and Diamond Top Coat
 Hey great people, I hope that your week is off to a great start. 
You know on a Sunday just after you have eaten your Sunday Lunch and before IdolsSA starts you have that three - fours hours of doing nothing, that is when  I do my nails for the week. 
I have been loving the Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Longwear Nail Enamel 540 Checkmate retail selling price is usually R110. I have to say when I first heard the word gel I thought ooh my the nail polish must take time to set but this one doesn't take time at all 2 minutes is the average waiting time if I may say. The Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Longwear Nail Enamel Checkmate  is still a nail polish but once applied it gives a gel finish. One coat is enough but I always wear two coats and once the nail polish has dried I then apply the Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Longwear Nail Enamel 010 Diamond Top Coat. The nail polish usually lasts for about 5 days. 
The gel nail polish trend is here to stay, so which gel nail polish are you currently using at present?

LOTD | Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick




Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick shade 430 Softsilver Rose

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick shade 520 Wine with Everything

You will notice that the shades are closer to each other but the 520 Wine with Everything is darker than the 430 Softsilver Rose 
Hey guys, hope that your Saturday is going great. I know that I promised you a LOTD yesterday but technology has turned against me, first my phone got a virus, then my camera fell in the ocean, then a phone my sister borrowed me just got a virus this morning.  I just don’t know what to do now. Until I get a new phone and a camera I will just take pictures with my laptop camera.  I would like to apologies for the slight bad quality.
I hope that you have a great weekend and see you on Monday.
XOXO

Review | Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks




 Review | Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick (430 Softsilver Rose and 520 Wine with Everything), Pictures & Swatch

Good day great people, Wednesday is here and I have another great review for you. Today I'm reviewing the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick shades 430 Softsilver Rose and 520 Wine with Everything retail price R130 but the online store Spree has it on sale for R73 HERE . 

I will start of first with the packaging, the lipsticks comes in a black container with a gold trimming which has the brand *REVLON on it. Its top is transparent which helps with identifying the color. The packaging is simple black and gold nothing fancy and I like it. 
The lipsticks are mildly fragranced when they are in their casings and once applied they are if I may say  "frangrance free" as there is no lipstick smell. 
The shades 430 Softsilver Rose and 520 Wine with Everything are on the pinker side of the pallet. I prefer to use the shade 430 Softsilver Rose during the day and at night is use the shade 520 Wine with Everything. 

The lipsticks have a creamy texture, which helps with the with an easy application process as there is no tugging and pulling (LOL just imagining myself tugging and pulling). The lipsticks are creamy so they do transfer when doing such activities like drinking and all. What I do to make my lipsticks last a bit longer is I wear a lipliner for softer shades such as the 430 and 520 I prefer using a brown lipliner

Tomorrow I will be posting, Lip of the day and Lip of the night feature so that you can see how they look like when applied.

* The lipsticks were kindly sent by RevlonSA

Review | Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - Black Chrome 07

Review | Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - Black Chrome 07

Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - Black Chrome 07


Hey guys, hope that you are all well and okay. It is the weekend and it is time for us to chill and celebrate. Today I have another review for you the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - Black Chrome 07 and the prices is R110 at Fochini. I'm an eyeliner girl so when I saw it the other week, I grabbed it. 

The Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - Black Chrome 07 comes with 2-brushes-in-1 , the one side is for those sharp fine lines and the other is to smudge. 

Here is how you can use the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - Black Chrome 07
  • If you’ve never applied liner with a brush, don’t be intimidated, it is just as easy as using a pencil tip, easier if I am add. 
  • Please note that, this is for use on your upper lash line, not the inner rims. 
  • You will need to keep your brush clean in between applications, I just clean mine with a wet wipe.
