Product Review : MILANI "Velvet Lips Creamy Lipcolor"

Hey Pretties,

how are you all doing? You know i love to share info about the products i find completely fabulous,as well as join the millions of people who put up reviews of what they think about certain products & here is mine.

Milani Velvet

I became familiar with these lipsticks when my dear friend (Adenike,also a respected Makeup Artist) introduced me to them. One thing you should know is that i've tried lipsticks from various brands & apart from MAC, NARS , NYX, Black Up, Smashbox, i havent seen any that gives the desired look against the skin that i always prefer.

So when my friend introduced me to these lipsticks, i had to give them a go. I got myself these 4 beautiful colors :  LUXURIOUS(Gold-tone Pink) ; RITZY(True Gold) ; RED CARPET(Primary Red) & CLASSY(Black Cherry)

They are true to colour, moisturizing, long lasting & silky on the lips . Here's a swatch on my skin :






I Hope this review was helpful to someone out there

LOTD - Golden!

Hey Pretties,

So,it's a beautiful Sunny Monday & i seem to be loving the  LOTD(Ps : I try to do 2 lips for each look- A Nude/neutral & A Bold), so expect a lot back to back. I love the sculpted look, so get used to seeing a lot of sculpted looks as well(why not do it all,right!!!).


I used Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation in 504,600 & 708, set with Black Opal's Invisible Oil Blotting Pressed Powder & Deluxe Finishing Powder in Dark , Blush was Black Opal's Raisin & Ginger &.I applied highlights in a dramatic fashion using Black Radiance's Mosaic Bronzer in Golden Shimmer


I used Eversheen's Eyeliner Pencil in Brown & Brown-Black(Tell no one, :)) & set my brows with SORME's Eyebrow Control Clear Mascara


I used Milani's Secret Cover Concealer in 03 Honey as a base,set with Black Opal's invisible pressed powder. Then, i used Casabella's Matte Brown eyeshadow in Mink & Black Opal's Raisin Blush to Contour my eyes. I lined my upper lashline with Jordana's EasyLiner in Black, set with a matte black eyeshadow from Sleek's  Safari Palette & for my lowerlashline, i used Jordana's Easyliner in Sterling Blue, Denim Blue & Sea Green

I applied Lashes by Marisse, using DUO's Surgical Lash Glue in white

I used a light gold shade from Revlon's Colorstay Palette in Copper Spice to highlight the inner corner of my lower lashline

I have on prescription Contact lenses by Bescon

Product Review : Sleek Metallic Eyeshadow Duo in Molten Metal(714)

Hey Pretties,

I discovered this wonderful not-so-new product recently, when i stopped at the Sleek Store at Ipodo Market(for those who live in Ikeja) . Its a Cream Shadow that comes in 2 shades : Pewter & Gold Leaf. Its wet to the touch & applies like a dream. But like most cream products, i advise you set the "shades when using them with matching colored eye-shadows.


The packaging is as the name of the Brand,Sleek & fits easily in my palm. I'm sure it can fit into any purse,wallet or makeup bag easily. It also comes with a mirror,which is what i love about most Sleek products.

5.4g / 0.19oz  =N=900(Prices i state are as i bought them. Be prepared to spend a little less or more in Nigeria)

Like i used on Monalisa here for her Exquisite Magazine Cover earlier this year!

I believe these are the only shades they have in this style, ill keep you posted if i find that there are more options.

- The Packaging makes it easy to fit into your Purse,Bag or Wallet
- Can be used to highlight the Inner corner of your eyes or to add special effects to an already completed makeup look
- Cleans off easily

- The Quality is poor (It doesnt spread smoothly and as an eyeshadow,it may require layers to achieve the desired results)
- It is pricey considering that it may need a shadow beneath to enable it last longer where applied
