Soweto, South Africa
What Up guys, being the first boy ever to grace the In Out & Around Soweto Blog pages and I must say it is super awesome if I do say so myself. 
Zanele my aunt asked me to review the new NIVEA MEN Body Deodorizer since I have a very active lifestyle, and by active I mean I have hundreds of boy things to do during the day and night and I need to keep cool and smell great. 
I like to smell great no matter what time of the day it is and which boy does not like that. 
So I received four sprays from MANBOX with the following scents
I will talk about the price first and for me R44.99 is reasonable as I'm still a student and I'm not trying to break the bank just to smell great, however I do appreciate something that is affordable yet long lasting, which is what the spray does. 

My favorite out of the two are Sprint and Cool Kick which are almost finished because when I apply the spray I apply it, but I do like that the sprays last the whole day 
and there is no need for re-application. 
I hope that you get the gist off my review and you go out and get them 
because they are a true value for money. 

Till next time (hopefully).

3 Top Tips on Applying A Concealer

Soweto, South Africa
Hey guys, hope all is well and okay, today I thought that I should do a post all about concealers and share some tips with you.... Should you want me to do reviews on the pictured concealers please let me know cause the NYX concealer has been calling for a review but I haven't been feeling like sharing it cause I have been struggling with using it. 

I did this post back in 2015 and I'm like let me share an updated post. 

**Apply foundation and then concealer**
I prefer applying a foundation first then a concealer as this not only helps covering the dark circles underneath my eye area but it also helps with keeping my under eye area bright.
***Update you can also use a color correct before foundation which will elevate your make-up into a new level

**Do not just dab the concealer beneath your eyes, instead draw a triangle**
While most of us just apply a tiny coat directly underneath the eye area, the way that I do it is to draw to a triangle with the base *or some sort*.  The triangle method effortlessly camouflages my under eye dark circles and gives me that brightness that I need.
**Update this not only makes your concealer look seamless but makes your face look a few pounds lighter.

**Prime your eyelids with concealer to prevent eye shadow bleeding**
I don't need to explain this the heading speaks for itself.
**Other than spending a whole lot of money on eyelid primers rather make use of this step and thank me later.

Hope that your day goes well and use that concealer.

The Week Ahead

Soweto, South Africa
Happy Monday, hope that your week is off to a great start and like I said on Twitter this morning, ngicela sibange tuu (meaning let's just work hard). 

My laptop is dying a slow death guys, the charging port is nolonger working and the cooling mechanism ooh fan thingy just decided to die this weekend, making things difficult as I will need to type fast before it decides to cooling and shut down. 

Because the laptop has decided to take a short left posts will also take a short left meaning that they won't be that in-detail, so my first FOTD post might go up this week, a foundation review and a super exciting guest post is also coming. 

On my nails I have the shade Cardshark from the Revlon Colorstay Range. 

Have a productive week and see you soon.

NEW IN | Yardley Raincoat Mascara

Soweto, South Africa
Hey guys, so I received this pr package from Yardley and I'm like mmmh RainCoat Mascara, 
then I opened it and it had a clear consistency and I'm like hold-up let me check the packaging again . 
So I read it and the following is mentioned on the mascara bottle...
"invisible, water resistant, top coat, sets and shapes, lashes and brows"
mmmh again, this is my type of product and let me tell you why!

How many mascaras do you have that apply so well and yet are never waterproof or claim to be waterproof then two minutes later your eyes look like a panda... 

I applied the Yardley Raincoat Mascara along side the Yardley High Definition Mascara pictured below (because it's great however it is not waterproof)... so the instructions are pretty simple apply your fav mascara wait for it to dry then apply the Raincoat Mascara. 

What I like about the Yardley Raincoat Mascara is that it did not pull any product and the wand came out clean, as some top coats tend to blend with the product and make it runny before it sets 
(hope my observation makes sense)
The instructions are as follows for the Yardley Raincoat Mascara:

1. Apply your favorite mascara and leave to dry.
2. Apply Yardley Raincoat Mascara to lock in the water-resistant all day wear.
3. Also ideal to set and shape brows

Overall based on my first impressions of the Yardley Raincoat Mascara I'm very excited for this product as it just saved all my mascaras and can't wait to show you how it looks like on the brow on future tutorials to come. 

Yardley Raincoat Mascara retail - R99.95

Available at selected Clicks, Dis-Chem, Edgars, Foschini & Leading pharmacies nationwide

Autumn 2018 Preview

Soweto, South Africa
Hey guys, hope everything is well and okay, this post is mainly to share some of the stuff that will be happening this month on the blog and YouTube channel, 

The month will be off to a slow start as I will be settling into motherhood and I have decided to give the new blog contributors a week off aswell because there won't be much work for them to do, and there is only one event that I will be attending to personally during the week of the 5th. 

Most YouTube posts will start going live from the 12th of March when we all return to full-time blogging, things are about to get extremely exciting on the blog. 

Ooooh the flowers on the main pic! don't they look good, they are my push prezzie (",) and I love them, who ever said push prezzies need to be expensive does not know the true
 meaning behind a prezzie. 

Back to the blog, there will most definitely be Autumn beauty tutorials, hauls, favorites, plenty of reviews, events the main focus being most definitely Soweto.
