House of Tara Brow liner

House of Tara Precision Eyebrow Pen in 'Brown' - N1000

When I got this House of Tara Precision Eyebrow Pen* I was very worried, a felt tip pen to fill in my brows? Won't it be too harsh. But after I swatched it on my hand, my concerns melted away.

I have used this every single day since I took it out the box and that was about 2weeks ago. If you are familiar with lining your top-lid with liquid liners, this should be a dream to work with. You will definitely need a steady hand.

This liner is in the shade 'Brown' and as you can see it is the softest shade and not harsh at all. It may look, from the swatch, that it won't make a difference but trust me when I say it does. It also helps keep your brows in place once dried.

It offers me the precision I love! Have a look at my 'before and after' shots above. I really really love this product, so much so that my former love here has taken a back seat for now. I will highly recommend this brow pen, give it a try and please let me know in the comments section how it worked for you.

E.L.F. Gel liner brush
I am always looking out for a new tool to apply my gel-liner. I'm pretty good with gel liner application, so a new brush to apply always excites me… I'm a loser I know

E.L.F. Angled Eyeliner Brush - N1000
I was browsing BeautyKink a couple weeks ago and I came across this oddly-shaped brush and I HAD to get it.

I am so glad I did. The bend at the top really aids in getting that 'flick' we love on the outer corner of the eye.

You do have to turn it this way and that as you work through different sections of your eye, depending on which eye lol.

For my right eye I like to work with the brush turned in, that's with the bend at an angle away from the eye. Then when I get to the 'flick' I lay it on it's side.

Then for my left eye (I know this isn't my left eye, but work with the kid), I work with the brush upside down and work with the same angle as the right eye for the flick.

I can't get enough of this brush and like most things, I love that I own more than one eyeliner brush, because it's always nice to have choices.

Love, Tims Signature Fragrance

You all know I cannot describe scents to save my life, but I really like the 'Love, Tims'* fragrance by I Do Weddings.

'I Do Weddings' is an indigenous weddings solutions company, which caters to all wedding related needs. Love, Tims is their bridal line that offers wedding dresses, reception dresses and their recently added self-titled fragrance. I have worn it quite a few times these past week and it's now part of my perfume rotation on my vanity.

It's just a nice light fragrance, not overbearing and all….. that's all I've got! But I DoWeddings describe its as having opening notes of bergamot and pink pepper. The heart of the fragrance is floral, the base note infuses vanilla musk and sandalwood

It retails for NGN5,500 and can be purchased in-store at Shomya Salon & Makeup Studio and BeSaz Boutique

Maybelline 'BabyLips'

Image From:

Now I am not sure how many people know that lip conditioners and lip balms are two different lip products. A balm usually has a  thicker consistency and contains some sort of menthol, which gives that 'cooling' sensation when applied and soothes chapped lips. A conditioner works the same way but has a more 'buttery' consistency and doesn't contain menthol, unless it is a flavour added in. I much rather prefer conditioners. I initially thought I preferred balms, but found my lips to prefer conditioners.

Maybelline's 'BabyLips'* are conditioners and I absolutely love them. I apply them right after I have moisturised my face and it stays on while I do the rest of my face so that by the time I get to working on my lips they are nice and moisturised providing the best base for my lip products.

I also reapply this throughout the day whenever I feel that I need it.

I have had the yellow one this since the Maybelline Launch party and it's permanently on my vanity and I was glad when I was given the pink one at the Maybelline Beau-Tee Party a few weeks ago. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this was slightly tinted, so it conditions as well as provides some colour for the lips. This goes everywhere with me in my MMM.

So these are the products I have been loving this month.
