Few days ago I was raving about the Lip Creams that I fell in love with and I played with the shade Amp.
Today, I did swatches of all the shades and I must say that if you are aiming for intense and vibrant lip colour that doesn't jeopardize moisturizing your pucker then, this Lip Cream is it!
It is lightweight and applies smoothly. And it has a beautiful mint feeling in it that gives that extra zing. It's like the lip cream is "alive"! I wore it for hours and it stayed put. Now, that's every makeup artist's dream.
From left to right, the shades are:
Sherbet, Voltage, Amp, Red Light, Popular, Busy Bee, Comfort Zone and Smitten.
So which is your favorite???
You can get these at any Casabella store closest to you.

Truth is, our hair is always growing whether you like it or not. But, I wanted more than the average half-an-inch per month of natural hair growth.
So I decided to up my game a little. Or as my friend Laila put it, do "ojoro."
And so I said to myself, "Perfectil makes great skin and hair vitamins, let me start with that."
I bought the medicine and for the next 2 months after purchase, I couldn't bring myself to pop a pill. It kept gracing my dressing table and I kept admiring it everyday.
I can be that strange. (Shaking my head)
You know what they say, you never know what's in a book till you read it. The same can be said of medicines too.
After many months of purchasing, admiring, lounging, I finally made up my mind that it was time I started taking my Perfectil. And so I did!
First I must say:
This is a nice multivitamin to add as your daily supplement despite the fact that it has Hair, Skin & Nails on it. So you do not need an additional one.
It doesn't have any bad taste or smell. So you just swallow in peace without cringing or frowning. Hehehe.
It is a one-a-day capsule. That makes life easier for me because I know if it's more than that I'll probably never remember to take them.
I haven't seen any miraculous growth yet and I'm not expecting one either for these sole reasons:
1. It's 1 week ago I started taking them, so it's too soon to conclude.
2. The multivitamin is supposed to supply your blood stream with nutrients and as the blood circulates it, every organ is fed. This process definitely has no impact on old growth of hair. It feeds new growth. This means the new hair coming out is extra strong and healthy.
Bottom line is that I bought perfectil for fast hair growth and it helped with an unexplainable itchy skin instead. One that Canesten or 1% Hydrocortisone could not treat. I must say that the itching stopped after 3 days. I was overjoyed. I didn't see that coming.
I feel good all over with lot of energy and most importantly, my skin just keeps glowing. I love the way it looks and feels.
Perfectil increases your appetite for food. This is the only issue I have with it. Asides that, I am content with the results I've seen in just a week.
You can purchase Perfectil in any HealthPlus, Medplus or any good pharmacy closest to you.
So beauts my conclusion is this, don't dwell on your lotions alone for that fresh, glowing skin, take a multivitamin daily. Your entire body both in and out will thank you for it.
Much love, bloghearts.
I use the Arganics OutStop This Neutralizing and Clarifying Shampoo after every relaxer application. It instantly stops the action of the relaxer on my hair without making my hair stiff or spongy. It has a color alarm that lets you know if you still have relaxer residue in your hair. Perfect.
And the OutReplenish This Infinite Repair Conditioner is just a miracle! My hair has never felt softer. I don't have words to explain this. (Blushing)
These are some of the products I experimented with during my looong break err... silence. Hehe
Much love beauts,

Blogging has never been made easier and effortless (grinning). Yes, I had to say it again. Hehe.
A friend of mine used this quote as her PM on BBM and I thought it'd be nice to share with you guys.
"One candle can light 3,500 more candles. I would rather share the knowledge I have than let it die with me."
That said, this post is about a student of mine I trained: Chioma Ekpo.
During the period of training, she started off at a rather slow pace but picked up much later. I must say that I am so blessed to have her as a student because she learnt quite fast, her punctuality was amazing and she was very humble both during her training session and after.
I was completely lost for words when she put these pictures up on her dp. I was bubbling with excitement and saying to myself, "I am so blessed."
Her creativity is epic! I'm so proud!
Enjoy the photos below.
Much love, peeps.

It's been a while I blogged. I know. I know. Do pardon me.
But hey, it's good to be back on here.
Sometime in February this year, I colored my hair orange myself. That was such a drastic color change; lifting my natural hair color from black to well errr, not exactly blonde but many many shades away from it.
I used Clairol's Textures and Tones hair dye in Flaming Desire.
It was such a beautiful shade!
And then, the breakage happened, we all know the rest but that's not the story for today. I well errr, medium chopped my hair.
But the main gist is that I got tired of orange hair. I get bored easily. I wanted black back but without having to use a permanent color. And so, I opted for henna I was so skeptical at first but as we all know: what will I ever do without other people's review online? And with that, I was able to make up my mind and finally purchased NaturVital's Color Hair Mask in Black.
The pix below speak for themselves. That's all I got to say.
I'm loving the result.
