Pink & Black Skull Mani (My birthday mani)

Hi guys ! Happy Friday ! Hope you all had a great week.

Today I'm sharing my birthday mani with you. As I mentioned a few times on the blog before, I'm not a fan of wearing cupcake or balloon nail art on my special day, I prefer a SUPER girly mani usually.  

For this year's mani I used some Sally Hansen Nail Polish strips I had around for about a year now. These Sally Hansen strips applied super easy , I was actually surprised how easy where. I'm really in love with Revlon Coy lately too . So I decided to pair these two gorgeous colours together . 


So onto the photos... 

How was YOUR week ? Any fun plans for the weekend ?

Sorbet - The Riviera Set

Hi guys . Hope you had a great week. It's my birthday on Friday, so I'm pretty excited for this week to end... Hee hee hee

Today I'm sharing another set from Sorbet - The Sorbet Riviera set. This set contains 3 polishes and a sparkling glitter topper - perfect for the autumn and winter weather heading this way. This set is SUPER pretty . 

So onto the polishes - 

Sorbet - Chic Me Baby 
Sorbet Chic Me Baby is a gorgeous chocolate brown polish. I was surprised - I liked this one a lot more than I thought I would. I used two coats of Sorbet Chic Me Baby in the swatch.
Sorbet Deep Sea - 
Sorbet Deep sea is a gorgeous blue - purple colour. It looks a lot more blue in the bottle than on the nail. I used 2 coats of Sorbet Deep Sea in the swatch .

Sorbet Red Light -
Sorbet Red Light is a gorgeous cherry red. I don't really like reds, but these Sorbet reds are really changing my mind. I used two coats in the swatch .

Sorbet Sparkling Reverie
This is a gorgeous glitter topper (although I'm sure 3/4 coats will get this polish opaque , or at least pretty close ) This polish contains gorgeous silver and sparkling blue glitters - perfect for an accent nail or to spice up your mani . I used 1 coat over Sorbet Chic Me Baby / Sorbet Deep Sea & Sorbet Red Light . 

Again, this is another gorgeous set. The formula on these polishes are all nice and buttery, and I do get about 4/5 days of wear before any chipping or tip wear starts to show. 

You can find Sorbet nail polishes at Clicks stores as well as Sorbet Salons. 

How was YOUR weekend ? What colour do YOU like the most ?

Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer & Lipsticks

Hi guys ! Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was pretty relaxing for a change. 

Revlon recently launched some new awesome lip products, The Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquers and Revlon Ultra HD Lipsticks, and today I'm sharing three swatches of each, as well as why I love them .

*Each swatch is just one swipe of product *

Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer

These awesome lip lacquers are formulated with a gel formula high gloss shine . The formula has a light feel, while the colour is SUPER pigmented . My favourite part of these glosses - they are EXTREMELY moisturising . Even after the colour had faded, my lips still feel moisturised . These has a brush applicator . And let's be real - the little crystal on the top looks extremely fancy to take out when out and about. 

The three shades I have :
HD Strawberry Topaz - the gorgeous strawberry red
HD Tourmaline - a bright pink Barbie pink
HD Smokey Topaz - a gorgeous nude


Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick
Okay so I have to admit - I'm SUPER picky when it comes to lipsticks - my lips are SUPER sensitive. These Revlon Ultra HD Lipsticks are wax free - and doesn't irritate my lips at all. The formula is super creamy - yet opaque and comfortable on the lips. And it smells like vanilla and mango - Yum ! 

The three shades I have :
HD Peony - A gorgeous light pink
HD Geranium - A stunning coral shade
HD Azalea - A perfect fuchsia pink

I have to say,these lipsticks has a downside - You have to close the lids carefully , or it will chip away a little bit of the lipstick- my HD Azalea got chipped like that in the progress of taking photos.  As you can see in my photo above - they are turned down all the way and a little bit of the lipsticks are still visible - making . 

Both these Ultra HD Lip Lacquers & HD Lipsticks retail for R145 

Have you tried any of these lipsticks or lip lacquers ?

March TestBox Unboxing & Give-Away

 Hi guys ! Hope you are having a great week ! 

For those of you who are not familiar with The Test Box, let me first tell you a little more about them -  it's a subscription service where each month you are sent a few products . The thing that makes The Test Box different from other subscription boxes, is that it does not believe in sachets and teeny tiny samples that do not allow you to properly test if you like a product or not. I'm one of those people that need to use a product more than once to see if I really like it or not. 

A subscription costs R160 a month (which includes delivery) . The March Test Box is a two part unveiling. The box I'm showing you guys is part one . 

So onto the unboxing of the March box - 
  1. Joico K-PAK Shampoo to repair damage (100ml value R120) A gentle, rich cleansing shampoo that restores weak and depleted hair to its optimal strength and condition Joico K-Pak Shampoo to Repair Damage replenishes amino acids and fills in damaged areas of the cuticle while hydrating and protecting with aloe and antioxidant Vitamin E. Your hair will become stronger and more resilient to external damage. Plus, because what’s been missing is being replenished, your hair will be more responsive to styling. pH 4.5-5.5.
  2. Joico K-PAK Conditioner for damage (100ml value R125) This daily conditioner delivers the precise amount of daily conditioning that damaged, chemically treated hair needs. Joico K-Pak Conditioner to Repair Damage reconstructs and smoothes hair with K-PAK’s Bio-Advanced Peptide and Keratin Silicone complexes. Your hair will be moisturised and stronger with increased silkiness, shine, movement and bounce — all without tangles or static.
  3. Double Dipped Detangler (value R45) Beyond being the best named product this is one of the test boxes baby loves not only is it super cute looking but it is an amazing wide tooth comb which we use to combat teasing, Rupunzel type ladies and also with our younger ladies who just don't like brushing. This is the one time double dipping is ok. Wink. 

Now the awesome news - I'm giving away a 3-months subscription that one lucky reader can win.
