Long Lasting (no sharpen) Brow pencil | Review

After about a month of trying this eyebrow pencil out, I'm pleased to say I can give you all the deets on it! I saw this as a novelty, similarly to the eye shadow tattoos, because you don't have to sharpen this pencil. I'm all about simple life. If only my hair would agree with me most times, haha.

Elasta QP Design Silk | Review

This is a product I have raved about in past favourites posts and even my Top products for the year. Because it’s so amazing, it continues to be one of those products I have to repurchase or have back-ups of. I first heard about this from ULoveMegz, when she said this could be a dupe for the Nioxin Bliss Thermal Protector which was discontinued (not to mention expensive). So I headed to town, hoping to find this miracle product which would help my hair to hold styles.

Eye Magic Instant Eyeshadow Tattoo | Review

It's Friday, so I owe you guys a makeup look and this sorta counts as one. I was browsing the BornPretty store and saw these interesting instant eye shadows. Remembering when brands like L'Oreal and Avon made something similar, I decided what they hey, this could be very interesting.

The Hair Rock Brazilian Body Bundle First Impressions

Hey all! You might have noticed, I'm more into my hair these days. I feel as though I have my makeup down, but when it comes to my hair, I am struggling. I've been experimenting with products and extensions since last year, and today I have another set of extensions which I've just recently installed. Since it's my first time with real, real virgin hair, and ordering it online, I decided to do any unboxing review, and my first thoughts a week after the install.

Products I Regret Buying #1 | Beauty

Hey all! As promised, here are the products I regret buying, this my very first of these videos. Hopefully I wouldn't have to film them too often. I just hate wasting my money on a product to not be able to use it at all. Many of these things I've tried to work my way around, but some just would not give any ease.

Without further ado, here's the video.


Products Mentioned & Links to them :

ORS Olive Oil Nourishing Sheen Spray
Garnier Fructis Curl Shaping Spray Gel 
Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes
NYX Studio Liquid liners- Extreme Blue, Extreme Black
e.l.f. Studio HD blush- Superstar
BH Cosmetics 88 Matte Palette (circa 2010)
VO5 Silky Experiences Island Coconut Moisturising Shampoo




Disclaimer: I was not paid to do this video, products were bought with my money. I am not bashing brands, just stating that not every (hyped) product works for me.

Hey all! Today I am bringing you a fun summer daytime look. It's also a part of a round up I'm participating in, for an ALL drugstore makeup look with other awesome bloggers!

Curl love (Flexi-rod Curls) | Hair

Hey all! As I spoke of in my latest hair update, I've finally gotten those spiral curls I've always wanted done.  I didn't use any heat on my hair to achieve this look. I simply followed my hair care routine and air dried for a bit.Then, I applied ElastaQP Design Silk to dampen my hair and wrapped the hair using end papers with my orange and purple flexi-rods. The curlers were left in overnight and these were my results in the morning.

Flexi-rod Curl results - Orange and purple rods used. Relaxed hair
Curls prior to fluffing

Flexi-rod Curl results - Orange and purple rods used. Single ringlet
Individual ringlet

Separated out some of the curls

June Favourites | Beauty

Hey all! I know everyone else is probably saying it, but doesn't it feel like the whole year is flying by? June was the grand transition to summer, and it is really hot and humid here in Barbados. Here are my beauty buddies from June!

L'Oreal True Match Blendable Powder


I honestly do not feel like wearing much on my face these days, liquid foundation or BB creams included. Although they have more coverage than this powder, I find myself gravitating to this more if I want to look a little less rough. Hello acne scars, I'm looking at you. This powder is very fine and gives a nice matte finish, which sometimes leaves me looking a bit dead, so I mist my face with witch hazel to liven it up. This powder offers light coverage, I would say you could build it, but it looks cakey then, so just use a concealer underneath. However I still haven't found my perfect shade in concealer yet.
