I ♥| MAKE UP FOR EVER lab shine( Star collection)





I love MAKE UP FOR EVER lab shine gloss but then again I love anything MUFE,it’s the perfect gloss + it’s non-sticky, tacky and it does not have that generic lipgloss vanilla scent. The scent is more on the fruity side; in terms of texture the gloss is smooth/thick without the yucky goopy feeling. It has a nice iridescence that’s not super glittery. The star collection I noticed is more on the sheer side, which is perfect for me.The star collection lab shine lasts about 2 hours on me which is OK but not impressive. The only issue I have with them is the price, even though I got mine at the IMATS at a discount, I still think they are expensive for the amount of product you get #myopinion.

Question of the day: How much are you willing to pay for a lipgloss? And do you think the price should match the amount of (oz) you get?

I graduated + Thank you


Sooooooooooooo I finally graduated #Phew. I wish words could describe how happy, proud and 

grateful I am. I cannot stop staring at my pictures, sometimes I feel like its all a dream but my smile is all 

thanks to the Almighty Allah without him and my resuscitation team (my family) I would have quit 

school a long long time ago ( Lord knows school is stressful) . God bless my family especially my 

mummy, friends, and even you my encouraging blog readers. I hardly ever say it but thank you 

very very much for the support, you have no idea how grateful  I am.

I am really not a speechy lady so I will just stop here............THANK YOU...........God bless

Skin regimen +

Good Morning 

I recorded this a day after my graduation (13th July) all that kissing/ lipstick all over my face was trying to make my skin breakout. 

The video features what I do 2-3 times a week , I never use the mask and scrub everyday (that will be asking for trouble). My everyday routine is pretty basic (cleanse, tone and moisturise) thats about it. I have combination skin (Oily T-zone which is the forehead/nose/chin and Normal on my cheeks). The products I use are geared towards my own needs. Remember to always check/ask if the products your using on your skin is appropriate especially if you have sensitive skin.

Surviving the HEAT

I do not know about the rest of the world but the current heat situation in the UK is killing me.I know people are going to say but "You lived in Arizona" or "Are you not nigerian?"...please I am allowed to complain.....I'm not use to this kind of heat, its abnormal for us and lets not forget i'm fasting....Anywoo I just wanted to share some tips on surviving this HEAT.

❀ Stay hydrated I cannot stress this enough .....WATER is the answer TO everything (well almost)

❀Wear SPF 20 and above if necessary, you do not want to exposure that gorgeous skin to the harsh sun.

❀If you really have to wear makeup, apply it lightly ( I recommend MAC's Mineralize skinfinish natural powder). Apply concealer were needed then a thin layer of powder, some bronzer, eyeliner and lipgloss #THEEND.

❀If you have a mini travel spray bottle, fill it with cold water to spray your face and body when you start to overheat....remember its all about keeping cool.

❀Wear sunglasses to above squinting (this helps prevent premature frown lines and wrinkles).

That's all I can really remember for now but if you have any suggestions please share with us it will be appreciated.

Since I cannot drink water till about 8:49pm I'm just going to hug my bag of ice :D.

Ramadan kareem to my Muslims and Muslimah followers

I just wanted to pop by to say ramadan kareem to you all. I pray Allah accepts our fast  #AMIN

"Ya Allah grant us the blessings of the holy month and may we be among those that will benefit.
  Ya Allah accept our ibadah, be pleased with us, forgive all our sins and guide us to the path of
  those whom you have guided.
  Ya Allah give us strength to utilise the very best of this opportunity which many did not get to witness.
  For our late ones, may you have mercy on them and may Al-jannah (paradise) be their final abode Amin"

My cousin sent me that message and I thought it would be good to share.
