Happy National Lipstick Day! It’s the day we women celebrate our lips and products we use to make them look beautiful! For this special day, I sat down and used ALL of my lipsticks, even the ones I bought and never touched. This post has been months in the making because there is usually no time for me to sit down and try out all of my lippies. I didn’t realize I had such a big collection till I was editing the picture for this post!
So check out my lipstick collection and read my mini-reviews of them! Some I hate, some I love and some are just going to collect dust at the bottom of my makeup bag. Enjoy!
On Saturday, 26th of July, I had the pleasure of attending the Aceessories 2 die 4 re-launch event in Adeniran Ogunsanya Mall over in Surulere. They had a shop in the mall before but they closed it and opened a new one in a bigger space. It was also the first time the Accessories 2 die 4 brand had ever done an event like this as they want to make sure everyone knows that they are the no 1 stop for all their accessory needs. They have a beautiful collection of statement necklaces, rings, earrings, purses, sunglasses and wrist bands for guys as well. I had a lot of fun and got to take a tour of the store, drink some yummy cocktails and take a picture with Dr. Sid who made an appearance! Check all the snaps from the event below!
Christian Louboutin has joined the crop of designers like Burberry, Tom Ford and Chanel to get on the beauty train with its latest offering – the “Rouge Louboutin” nail varnish.
The hot red polish, which matches the brand’s iconic red bottoms offers an ombr’e effect unique to the signature “Rouge Louboutin”. The flash of red and stiletto-like cap resemble the classic Louboutin high heel measured at 20.5cm (the exact height of the brand’s highest/tallest shoe designed in 2007).
This is the first of a range of nail varnishes to come, and the full set will be released in September 2014 inspired by either the shoes or bags. The varnishes are set to retail at £36.
