Revlon Photoready Insta-Sculpt Contouring Palette 001

The Revlon Photoready Insta-Sculpt Contouring Palette 001 allows for a very natural contouring look as the shades are not that dark. Which I like, I think it is perfect for a daytime look that’s normally less dramatic. In the pictures below I’ve applied the bottom right shade under my cheekbones and the bottom left shade on the sides of my nose. 

The peachy hue of the top left shade goes onto my cheeks, giving it a youthful look and the highlighter which is the top right shade goes onto my chin, the bridge of my nose and across my cheekbone. 

I can definitely see the difference contouring does to my face and it’s great to have a cute contouring kit like this one as it has all the shades to create a beautifully defined look. I really enhance my facial features in a lovely, natural way. I always use a dash of powder and makeup setting spray to set my look and this trick really helps the contouring to stay put.

The black packaging of this product is really sleek and I love the large mirror inside. Currently available at Takalot for R210.00

Revlon Colorstay Creme Eye Shadow in 710 Caramel

I’ve been wearing the Revlon Colorstay Creme Eye Shadow in 710 Caramel for over 5 months and I’m still impressed every time I use it. Apart from being so pretty and leaving a lovely pigmented golden hue on my eyelids, I love the fact that it’s so hygienic.

In my opinion, I’ve found that most eyeshadows accumulate bacteria very fast. I had to tuck many shadows in the past due to this however, the Revlon Colorstay Creme Eye Shadows comes with a lid that screws on tightly, in fact, the overall package of this product is quite amazing. The glass bottom part allows you to see the great colour which makes the product stay beautiful for the longest time. 

Also, it comes with a cute little eyeshadow brush that I sadly never use as I like to use my fingers when applying eyeshadows and foundations. The product itself is also really amazing as one coat is all I normally need. 

It’s long-wearing, pretty and it always creates beautifully, glam makeup looks. Currently available over at Clicks for R105.00

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 052 Show Stopper

A show stopper it is, Revlon’s beautiful new matte Super Lustrous Lipstick in the shade called (052) Show Stopper! It suits my skin tone so well and I guess I just never found the right hue as I’ve always stayed away from red lip colours in the past. However this one, seriously, va va woom! 

I love the fact that it stayed on during a hot summery day, a weeks ago. I was out and about town, busy with Christmas shopping where after I had something to eat and drink at a restaurant. I also remember asking my mom about the appearance of my lips so that I could make mental notes for this post. 

I didn’t completely believe my mom when she told me repeatedly that it still looked perfect however when I visited the bathroom I had all the proof I needed. It still looked fabulous and intact, even on the edges of my lips. 

Like, there wasn’t really any need for touch-ups. One coat is all you need to cover your lips but I think 2 coats are a safe bet for a fabulous look without worrying about any fading. And although it is matte, it doesn’t leave my lips dried or parched out at all. Also, in the matte consistency of this great shade, my lips appear to be slightly fuller

And I love the classic black and gold packaging which gives it a sophisticated, stylish look. Available at Woolworths for R119.95

Schwarzkopf Live Ultra Brights/Pastel in Purple Punk

I received a fantastic parcel filled with the latest and best haircare products from Schwarzkopf a few weeks ago and the Schwarzkopf Live Ultra Brights/Pastel in Purple Punk hair colour was in there too. Most people know that I’m not afraid of colour, I love vibrant shoes, earrings, nail polishes - well basically wherever a dash of colour is needed. And in all honesty, I’ve wanted to dye my tresses a bright, trendy shade for so long.

I’m not keen on putting highlights in my hair as it always courses split ends, breakage and that horrible straw like appearance. So, I decided since my own hair is a mousy shade with a bit of natural golden streaks, I was going to apply the Schwarzkopf Live Ultra Brights/Pastel in Purple Punk hair colour just like that. For more intense results they recommend you to lighten your locks and if you have naturally blond hair that’s even better. 

The kit contains

  • 1 Tube of Ultra Brights Colour Cream
  • 2 Sachets of Conditioner
  • A pair of gloves and an instruction leaflet

I used the entire tube of Ultra Brights Colour Cream on my short hair and it came out beautifully! I was going for the ultra-bright effect where there’s no mixing involved, the hair dye is applied onto your hair straight from the tube. (Well, you can transfer it to a glass bowl if you like.) To create the pastel effect (this will only work on light blond hair) you are supposed to mix the Ultra Brights Colour Cream with 1 sachet of conditioner. 

Furthermore, I love that there are no nasty intense chemical smells involved, I was sitting in front of the TV watching the Kardashians while the colour developed. I kept it on for a good 30 minutes because I wanted the promised electrifying, bold and bright results which are what I got. 

When I’m outside the colour is obviously even better so don’t let the somewhat maroon appearing images of my hair in this post deceive you, the purple punk is there. The included conditioner left my hair shiny and soft and here I am, on trend in my new purple hairdo. 

This is a semi-permanent colour and I’m kinda excited to see how it will fade. Overall I’m really happy with my new look, I will definitely try out the other colours in this range. I'm thinking of going pink and maybe blue who knows... I might even put in a few highlights as I would really like these shades to pop. 

This product is currently on sale at Clicks for R79.99

Clere Radiance 5 Oils Body Oil

Today I’m reviewing the Clere Radiance 5 Oils Body Oil which consists of a 5 oil blend of Olive Oil to help unclog pores, Castor Oil to remove impurities as well as Coconut Oil to soften the skin. There’s also Argan Oil to hydrate and lastly, Magnolia Oil to help minimise the appearance of stretch marks. 

The Clere Radiance 5 Oils Body Oil also contains Pure Glycerine, Vitamin A and E and Super Fruit Serum with anti-oxidants to nourish and moisturise the skin. 

I adore the prominent smell of the rich, earthy Argan Oil in this blend, there’s something very luxurious about it. Apart from smelling really expensive, the oil absorbs well into the skin too and it’s not greasy at all.

I’ve used it all over my body, hands and even face too without any irritation at all. I have some stretch marks on my tummy, they don’t really bother me but I’ve been applying generous amounts on that area. Hopefully in time, they’ll fade a little but for now, I have not seen that much of a difference.

However, I’ll continue using this product as it is really fuss-free and great for busy moms and women on the go. Clere really impressed me with this body oil and all the effort that went into it, something that’s high quality at a really affordable price

My skin feels silky and soft, it’s great to use after a bath at night allowing the oils to regenerate your skin throughout the night but it’s equally amazing with early showers where you can just slather on the oil - without worrying about white residue like with some body lotions. Also, the amazing lavish scent will make you feel really confident. Available at Clicks for R62,99
