My Experience at My Extensionz Hair Salon


MyExtensionz is one of Nigeria's leading hair brands and they have been around for a few years, selling hair and lashes in Nigeria and in the US. Naturally, they progressed into a full fledged hair salon which they launched recently and I was lucky to be invited for a pamper session over the weekend.

The Work LBD










Dress: H&M; Shoes: Ferragamo


I bought this dress from H&M and I love how versatile it is. It works well for business casual on an "almost weekend" day like Thursday and can easily transition into after work drinks with the girls or date night with bae :) 

What do you guys think of the look? 

I tried to find similar styles of the dress for you guys here and here


Peace & Love, 


Y.

Two Year Anniversary Staycation with Intercontinental Hotel Lagos


My husband and I celebrated our two year wedding anniversary this past weekend! Can you believe it's been two years already? God is good!

We were very blessed to be offered complimentary stay at the Intercontinental to celebrate our anniversary and we had a fabulous time! When the economy won't permit you to take a vacation, take a staycation!

Review | Kylie Matte Liquid Lipstick in Dolce K


I'm probably one of the last few beauty bloggers to get on the Kylie train (blame Hong Kong) but I'm happy I finally did! The collection has a lot of gorgeous shades but I purchased Dolce K to start and decided to share my thoughts with you guys as I usually do...



Colour: Dolce K is a light nude pink shade with some grey undertones. Looking at it in the tube, I was afraid it will come off ashy on me but I was pleasantly surprised that it worked well with my skin tone. If you are on the lighter side of the spectrum, you can rock it with no trouble but darker shades may need a brown lipliner to tone it down. 

Formula: There have been mixed reviews about the formula of Miss Kylie's lipsticks but I think it varies by shade. Dolce K I had no issues with- it applied easily, had great coverage, dried down to a comfortable matte feel on the lips. No issues at all with this one. 

Length of Wear: I found that it did not hold up quite as long as some of my other matte lipsticks. It started flaking off after about 4 hours.




Price: At 9k a pop, Kylie Liquid Lipsticks are not cheap. They are actually the most expensive I have ever bought. The liquid lipstick is high quality but I would say that you can get same quality with other brands for cheaper. Dolce K is quite a unique shade though, I'll give them that. 

Where to Buy: Check out BeautyRevNG's range of Kylie Cosmetics lip products here.

Have you guys tried any of the Kylie liquid lipsticks? Think they are worth they hype? 


Peace and Love, 

Y.

Video | 3D Eyebrows That Last Two Weeks!




I'm sure you guys will agree with me when I say the daily eyebrow struggle is REAL! I can confidently attribute my constant tardiness to the quest for nice brows! No jokes...

So imagine my excitement when I heard about 3D Brow sculpting which can give you bomb brows that last two weeks. I was sold before it was even sold to me. Anything that can give me back 10-15 minutes in the mornings is welcome. 

I decided to film the process for you guys so you can see exactly how this innovative process works and decide if you want to get them. Brilliant stuff I tell you!  


Aftercare/ Maintenance

These 3D Brows last for two weeks but can be even more depending on how you care for them . Firstly, you can't wash your face for 48hours after you get them done to make sure they are dried properly. Gross, I know...but you gotta do what you gotta do! Between my cotton pads and cleanser, I managed to pull through. 

After the 48 hours, you can wash your but have to be very careful to wash the brow area very gently. Also, no poking or prodding...just leave them be...like you would pencilled in brows. With proper care, you could probably stretch these to last a month.

Dose of Colors Hidden Treasure Palette...The Best Eyeshadow Palette I Ever Owned....


This Hidden Treasure palette is the BOMB...seriously! I'm not much of an eyeshadow person so I don't have that many palettes but of the few I have and use (all NAKEDs inclusive), this is the best.

I first saw this baby in action on MakeupShayla's Snapchat and I knew I had to get it asap! Only problem is that the Hidden Treasure palette is limited edition so it is probably easier for a cow to pass through the eye of a needle than to track this palette down. .. I was super lucky to snatch up the last one from BeautyRevNG.
