REVIEW | REVLON Colorstay Looks Book Eyeshadows

Soweto, South Africa
REVLON COLORSTAY LOOKS BOOK  EYE SHADOW PALETTES
REVLON COLORSTAY LOOKS BOOK™ EYE SHADOW PALETTES

Hey GuyZies, REVLON in 2019 gave us some of the best releases when it came
to drugstore make-up
one of those gems was the *REVLON Colorstay Looks Book Eyeshadow Palettes

The claim:
5 longwearing eyeshadow palettes, each with 8 expertly matched shades in matte, 
satin, shimmer and metallic finishes that wear for up to 24 hours.
Shades : MAVERICK, ENIGMA, PLAYER, ORIGINAL 
and INSIDER(missing from the picture).

My Thoughts:

I won't lie when it comes to eyeshadow releases REVLON was slacking, 
when it comes to their eyeshadows I remember one eyeshadow pallette
 from them that came with a blush and two lipsticks, being a sucker for 
REVLON products ofcoz I bought it. I will that post over HERE l
so you can see what I'm talking about. 
Another eyeshadow situation from them were quads and they are still releasing them
 I feel like they don't do well because they are a one eye look situation.  

I'm sure they went back to the drawing board when 
they came up with the 5 Colorstay Looks Book Eyeshadows because these ones look 
like a collection that was curated for the everyday consumer, from
student to professional they have you covered. 
Looking for a day or night look this collection has you covered. 

The eyeshadow comes in mini packs however they are well pigmented, little to no fall-out 
and a little goes a long way.

If you are looking for an everyday look or something brighter
these eyeshadows have you covered. 

SHOP : Instore I tried looking for it online
but I'm unable to find one. 

See you soon.

P.S. I have 4 eyeshadows in the picture because I gave one away.

Reviewing Last Week While Eating Pancakes

Soweto, South Africa

HeyGuzies, a little post looking back on the previous week.
I managed to post 2 YouTube videos and create 2 blogposts 
I am truly happy with my accomplishment, it could have been better 
however my internet decided to give up on me Friday Morning and I 
spent the weekend in silence no internet and all. 


The current game honestly is just to become consistent over here and 
on the YouTube channel, especially with sharing stuff that is
affordable and all since a lot of people myself included need 
to tighten up their belts and having to pay Cell C for the 4th time 
 for their faulty sim I can't deal. 
Whats worst is I needed to go to the mall to gain access to have this done, 
RICA and all.


Pancakes are a great meal for me when craving something sweet 
because they are easy to make and they use only one egg. 
Adding chocolate chips is an easy way to take them 
up a notch. 
The coffee, ooh well ever heard of the saying it keeps the
headaches away. 
Well it does. 

The recipe for the pancakes I made can be found on the following LINK.

Stay safe and warm guys. 

See you soon.

NEW IN | ANEW VITAMIN C RADIANCE MAXIMISING SERUM

Soweto, South Africa
Hey GuyZies, with the lockdown in effect doing skincare and taking care of 
myself has been at the top of my list.
I received a package from Avon containing their newly 
launched Vitamin C Radiance Maximising Serum because I was still using 
another serum I didn't want to start using this one because the ingredients
would clash as serums carry a higher concentration to that of e.g. a day cream. 

As a blog tradition, I like doing NEW IN posts like these because I get to share 
what products are currently on trial and their claims 
so that I can gauge what the product is all about. 

The Claim

ANEW Essential Vitamin C serum delivers pure and potent stabilised Vitamin C 
that stays active from the first to the last drop.

Oil-free
Potent 10% stabilised pure Vitamin C formula
Absorbs immediately
Non-greasy and non-sticky
Lightweight texture
Suitable for all types and skin tones
Clinically tested
Allergy tested
Dermatologist tested 

SHOP : HERE
retail R319 currently sells for R299 on the AVON site

My thoughts

I began using the serum last Thursday and from the first go I could tell that I will continue
using it. So far I like the packaging seems a more high end-ish, I like how it feels while using it, 
I can tell that I'm going to continue using this serum and the 
smell is not too bad either it smells orange-y
So far, so good. 

If you are looking to start using serums, I would say let us trial 
this one together. 
You can read all about the serum over here

Thanks for coming through today. 

See you soon.

TOP 3 FAVOURITE SETTING POWDERS

Soweto, South Africa
Hey guys welcome back, today I'm sharing with you my top 3 favourite setting powders.
They can be found at Clicks, Dischem, Edgars and some Jet stores
 also sell make-up now. At the time of writing up this article I know that Almay is currently 
being sold exclusively by Dischem. 

REVLON PHOTOREADY CANDID SETTING POWDER - R139
A firm favourite the *REVLON Photoready Candid in the under eye area. 
The fact that it is affordable aswell is really great. 
This setting powder comes in 3 different shades.
SHOP : HERE

#ProArtist HD PRO FINISH POWDER
When I saw this at JET I knew I had to buy it because I don't 
have anything like this in my collection, only thing similar I can think of
is the luxury banana powder which is expensive and I'm not about that. 
This powder is the finest of all the 3 and sets really well 
in the under eye area leaving it with that airbrush finish, the only thing
is you will need to drench your face with a good setting spray if you use a lot of this powder. 
Definitely not for baking, a little here goes a long way. 
SHOP : HERE

ALMAY LOOSE FINISHING POWDER - R249
When it comes to *Almay's their complexion products tends 
to be a hit or a miss and the Loose Finishing powder is a hit for me.
Comes in 3 shades but these shades go a bit darker than the REVLON counterpart. 
The powder will set your foundation and concealer aswell, without leaving your skin feeling dry. 
SHOP : HERE

As long as there is a liquid something, that goes on your face
a setting powder will need to follow. 
Give the above products a chance and tell me how it goes. 

Thanks for reading today's post.

See you soon.
