Welcome Moden Mavenz

Welcome to our new blog.

As a special treat to our facebook fans, we're going to go through alllllllllllllllll those wall posts you thoroughly enjoyed and provide updates on the products mentioned. Funny enough one of the first pictures I posted on May 11, 2012 was of the Essie collection available in Collins. This was the first time we were hearing of Essie polishes available in Bridgetown.
One year later and this is the only Essie collection Collins has had on their shelves. Crazy right?!
So what do we think of them? One word: LOVE. 

  This lavender is Essie 'Play Date'

Essie 'A Cut Above' <--- GORGEOUS

Essie's cream finishes are very "self levelling" and opaque in two most (one if you're good). The glitter polish is not overly troublesome to remove. Overall, we give this product 2 Thumbs Up. A whole year later and we're still smitten. 

What would like an update on next? Let us know in the comments.

Please check us out on YouTube for product reviews, hauls, behind the scene pics from our photo shoots, make-up tutorials and other crazy stuff we come up with. 

See you soon,

#Anti-Haul | My Brand Blacklist

In keeping with the Brand Awareness series, I was planning to do a Beauty Brands Drama series and discuss just that. The idea was scrapped cause really, I like to laugh and ting at dem tings but they don't truly matter in the grand scheme of life. What does matter though is that we be smart consumers. Let's not fall into mob mentality - whether for or against. Let's spend our money wisely and less susceptible to marketing ploys.

By all means, spend your money how you want. Like whichever brand you choose. Rep whomever influencer you "love". This is just my 10¢.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics

I bought one of his liquid lipsticks; I wore it once and then I threw it away (I didn't like the scent). Yuh see, I actually believe that this man is just an entertainer. He likes to say things for shock value. He likes the limelight...loves the attention. What he actually believes? I don't know if we'll ever really know. What I know fuh sure though is that he ain't tu…
