Faves In Five | June 2016

Half the year gone. "Time waits on no man."

Jessup Tapered Highlighter Brush

This was a prize from the I Heart Makeup Class that Heidi and I attended last year and I'm very happy to have it. It's great for applying both subtle and WOWZAH highlighters and it washes up well.

Sally Hansen 18K Gold Hardener

A recent purchase that I've already cracked into. It definitely hardens my nails but I think the gold flakes are just there to look pretty.

L'Occitane Amande Shower Oil

"This shower oil transforms, when in contact with water, into a delicate foam that gently cleanses the body. Lather and massage in the shower and rinse." All that and it smells amazing.

This just might be my favourite nail polish remover.

O.P.I Crystal File

I bought the mini version of this some time ago and it doesn't hold a candle to the real deal. If you wear your natural nails - I mean without acrylic or gel overlay -  a crystal nail file is a must.

Long answer...

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.

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.
