Product review: Zaron longwear gel eyeliner in jazz

March 19, 2016

Before now, I’ve never really had a staple gel liner. I’ve always bought and tossed for some reason or the other. But then I heard so much about Zaron gel liner in Jazz and I knew I had to get it. After using it for a while, I’m actually thinking of getting the liner in Jade and Jean. That’s how good it is. According to Zaron, the gel liner is…

Product review: Ecostyler & Ruoshan olive oil gel

March 17, 2016

In my stash I have two kinds of hair gel, the Eco styler gel which I bought because of the online raves, and the Olive Oil gel which I bought just because I wanted to try something new. The Ecostyler gel  works really well for twist-outs, high puffs, edge control (with a good brush, the edge will be sleek) and any other protective style you might want to try. However,…

Product review: VO5 2in1 moisturizing shampoo & conditioner

March 14, 2016

VO5 is a staple for me, the very first brand I bought when I started my hair journey in 2014. I found a new kind – the conditioner and shampoo in one. I was trying to save money and grabbed this immediately I saw this on the shelf. Verdict: I hate this product. It leaves me hair dry and tooooooo clean. Too much sulphate in this product, even my palms feel…

Product review: Now Foods Avocado Oil

March 9, 2016

There are three oils that are believed to be penetrate the hair: olive, coconut and avocado oils. I have had these three oils in my hair product stash for a while and I decided to try the avocado oil on my skin. I honestly can’t remember why I didn’t also try the coconut oil and/or olive oil. I didn’t use it on my face because it has a comedogenic rating of 2. Please…

Product review: Argan oil hydrating hair masque

March 2, 2016

When a hair blogger tells you how soft a product made her hair, it makes you literally dash out of your door to the nearest supermarket to try out these products…sometimes it works for you, other times it’s a disaster. This product has been on my shelf for months now and I told you I don’t have a strict regimen…I just reach for this conditioner when I need to deep-condition…

Product review: Motions CPR triple action leave-in conditioner

February 24, 2016

This is probably the most impulsive product I’ve ever bought. On my way to the movies, I peeped the Motions shelf through the showcase. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many Motions products in one particular store before. They possibly had all the available products so I quickly made my way to the Leave-in Conditioner section and picked a bottle without thinking. Full Name Motions CPR Triple Action Leave-in…

Product review: Zaron face primer

January 29, 2016

I had previously been using the Mary Kay Foundation Primer and for some reasons, it didn’t serve me any more. It was as basic as they come. I’m not even sure that it kept my makeup intact for up to six hours. Anyways, I knew I needed a change asap! As you might have noticed from my previous reviews, I had a major Zaron haul and a face primer was included….

Product review: Zaron lipsticks in ‘butterscotch’ & ‘barefaced’

January 28, 2016

I wouldn’t say I regret buying these lipsticks given the number of nude lipsticks I already have because there’s no use crying over spilt milk. Okay, so I got these for a simple reason – I was in search of a perfect nude lipstick not knowing that perfection is a thing of the mind. This time, it’s a dark lip liner. Before this eureka moment, I beat myself up on several…

Product review: Classic mist & fix setting spray

January 13, 2016

This was my very first setting spray and I wasn’t sure of it so I decided to get the cheapest one. So, you might be wondering, what exactly a setting spray is used for? Apparently, as the name implies, it’s used for setting makeup after application to give it a smooth and flawless finish. As I said earlier, I wasn’t sure what I was supposed to look out for hence I…

Product review: Organics olive oil leave-in conditioner

December 23, 2015

My criteria for selecting leave-in conditioners is largely based on its ability to allow my hair retain moisture for a couple of days. Let’s see if this made the cut. First Impressions I absolutely love the packaging. I love how it comes in a small handy bottle. It also has a distinct fragrance which I’m yet to place. Product Promise Fortified and enriched with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organics by…
