Mani Monday- Daredevil

Happy Monday Ladies

Today I am wearing a stunning deep red glossy polish from Catrice called 'Daredevil', which I paired with LA Girl 'Sands of Time'

I love 'Daredevil' it is so glossy and pigmented, this is two coats with no top coat, but you could even get away with one coat. It is from the Thrilling Me Softly Collection, which was a limited edition available a while back. 

'Sands of Time' is one of my favourite LA Girl polishes, it is a textured sparkly sand polish. I think these are still available at Dischem. You can check out another design I did with this polish HERE.

Happy Misty Monday Ladies!

Revlon HD Lippies: Review and Swatches

Happy Friday Ladies

This week was quite a busy week, and I am so glad it is Friday! I attended the Essie Launch on Wednesday, which was really fun. The box of goodies we walked away with was ahhhmazing! More details on the launch, the new collections, as well as the amazing goodie box will be up next week!

A while ago I received a lovely bag of goodness from Revlon with a bunch of their new lip and nail launches. You can read about the new products and get all the deets HERE. Since I have already harped on about these products, I will keep this post short and sweet.

Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer, I received 2 basic shades, HD Fire Opal (fiery red) and HD Tourmaline (bright barbie pink), the packaging is so glamorous and the colour is so rich and shiny, think liquid lipstick glossed over. I like that the colour is buildable, you can apply a little and blend in, or you can pile on the colour for a bright and beautiful look! These are really long lasting for a gloss, thanks to its thick formula, and when it finally does fade, it leaves a lovely stain. (R145)

Next up, Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick, I received 2 basic shades, HD Gladiolus (red) and HD Marigold (orange), these are full of pigment, long lasting, but not drying at all! They are in fact really moisturising and light on the lips, and could pass for an intense coloured lip balm. Aptly named after pretty flowers, with a scent of whipped vanilla and cream mango(not sure how that smells), but all I know is these lipsticks are the yummiest smelling lipsticks I have ever tried! Have you ever owned a lipstick that smells so yummy! (R145) 

From Left to Right: Gladiolus, Marigold, Fire Opal and Tourmaline.

Gladiolus: I am not a fan of the colour unfortunately, my mom loves it though!

Marigold: I love this colour! I think Orange really is the New Black to my lips!

Fire Opal: Love it, reminds me a bit of Stila Liquid Lipstick in Fiery, with gloss galore!

Tourmaline: If Barbie was real and wore a signature lipstick, this would be it! Build it up, blend it in, either way, just try it!

These are currently in store, but selling fast, especially the Lacquers in Fire Opal and Tourmaline. 

Have you tried these Ladies?

Also, don't forget my giveaway, it ends next week.

Have a lovely weekend!

Shop My Stash!

Hi Ladies

Today on Shop My Stash I have some illuminating products!

First up, Sh'Zen Illuminous Bronzer which is a dry oil with golden shimmer. I find the oil similiar to the Nuxe Dry Oil, but the shimmer particles are way too big for my liking, it looks like I just took a bath in golden glitter. The oil itself is great though, not greasy, quickly absorbed and moisturising. I have used it once, and I don't see myself using it much more since I prefer Nuxe and The Body Shop Oils, so it is going to my Blogsale HERE for R150.

Next up, Revlon Age Defying Concealor. I like this concealor, it is a rich concealor which doesn't cake and lasts quite long. But, it doesn't cover up dark circles as much as I had hoped, but I still think it is worth keeping and using.

Catrice, Made to Stay Highlighter Pen in 'Eye Want' is meant to be used on and around the eye to highlight and accentuate the eye. But, me being the rebel that I am, I use this as a highlighter to highlight above my cheek bones, bridge of my nose, the usual. And I am loving it! It is so easy to use, I highly recommend this!

Lastly, I have the Revlon Highlighting Stick in 'Golden', another easy to use highlighter. I use this the same way as Catrice above, just draw above my cheek bones, on the bridge of my nose and blend. Quick and easy!

Thanks for reading ladies!

Orange is the new black!

Hi Ladies

Today I have a stunning sandal from Legit to share with you! This was part of the Lalla X Legit Collab. I love it! I love the colour combo, I love the heel, I love the strap that can be wrapped up the leg or even knotted at the ankle. I haven't worn it yet, but I need to get some wear out of it before winter strikes! I also love how perfectly my nail polish matches! If you are interested, this is one of the new polishes from Revlon called 'Provocative', you can read more about it HERE

Also, don't forget to enter my Birthday Giveaway HERE, there is just over a week left! 

Thanks for reading ladies!
