I dont think everyone can wear this colour. I personally think it suits dark haired ladies more but thats just my opinion.
I think most people are scared of very bright colour on the lips but I think its all about confidence while wearing it. I love this shade of orange. Its bright & you can get away with wearing very little other makeup with it. I usually go with mascara, maybe an …

Nov/01/2016

Ive had dry hair & scalp since I can remember however after having a baby, it seemed to just get worse. A hairdresser (not my usual, unfortunately) insisted & convinced me that it was dandruff & changed my whole range of products to dandruff shampoo, conditioner & mask but then things took a turn for the worst.
I went from being dry scalp to oily, itchy & irritated so I …

Overall I cant say Im overly impressed with product.
I bought this with high hopes of it, well, lasting 14 days frankly and quite frankly, it does not!.
Yes I am a mom to a toddler so my life is crazy BUT till now, the longest its lasted is a week at a serious push & thats already looking grim.
It might be the colour I tried (Pre-show Jitters, which is a match to Fiji) so I …

** UPDATE **
It turns out I dont have dandruff at all! This dandruff shampoo was overstimulating my scalp & causing the greasiness, itchiness & irritation. My hairdresser (not my usual) was wrong in insisting it was dandruff in the first place. I just have dry sensitive hair/scalp!!!

I had to try this because of my dandruff problem.
While it washes well & my hair …

This is a really good nail polish in a really lovely colour. It appears to be really red but once applied, its actually a very good red-orange.
I love the brush to these Revlon polishes. They are so thin & easy to use & the product glides on smoothly. It also does not take decades to dry which is fabulous.
Highly recommend.

Polishes - Essie - Chillato

This colour looks great in the bottle but didnt translate well to my nails.
I required 3 good coats to get an ok finish & even then it still looked quite streaky.
Its a great spring/summer colour which Im sure will look better on tanned skin rather than my near white winter shade at the moment.
Its not a bad buy, just a disappointing finish once dry.

I cant help but wonder if Romper Room is the new Fiji especially since there seems to be a little bit of confusion over the various shades of Fiji available in different countries & from year to year.
Anyway, since Fiji is no longer available at my local drogerie, I decided to purchase Romper Room as an alternative & so far Im really loving it.
Its slightly pinkier than Fiji …

I had spots during my first trimester of pregnancy due to hormones which was such a new thing to me I had to find a solution.
I decided to try this even if just to soothe the redness/blotchiness of the spots & I was surprised at how well it worked.
The product comes in a smallish tube with a metal ended applicator. The actual product is a clear gel & I found although it may …

This was a miniature as part of the wedding collection thank goodness otherwise I would have been very disappointed.
Its a neutral soft pink, almost unrecognisable as pink once applied. Its similar to those nude colours like Ballet Slippers, Mademoiselle etc however this one does have a VERY small sparkle to it. Saying that, you really cannot see it unless you are out in the sun & even …

This colour came in a miniature pack of 4 colours as part of the 'Wedding Collection'.
While I do love the subtle lilac shade in the bottle, it doesn't really translate very well to the nails - in fact, hardly noticeable unless you layer on 3 or more coats which is just stupid/waste.

The formula is creamy, goes on well & dries relatively fast although I do like …
