Sorry for being AWOL for a bit! Everything’s been a bit all over the place, but I’m right as rain now.
Anyway, I bought a few products from Mecca Maxima a couple of weeks ago, and I haven’t had a chance to review any of them. So, here we go.
Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 (The Truth)
It’s interesting how much eyeshadow brushes can change your life. I bought this small, handbag-suitable four-pallet eyeshadow in the hope that it could be something I would use on the go. But no. The shitty eyeshadow brush that comes with it feels like I’m a five-year-old girl again, using crappy eyeshadow for kids. The colours are okay. It was probably a big mistake on my part for getting what could only be described as the most safe colours known to (wo)man. Serendipitous. Magnetism. Fate. Apropos. Brown. More brown. Brown brown. Oh, and some more brown just in case you missed the brown. I blame myself. I played it too safe, and ended up with boring colours instead of something spectacular. Think I’ll stick to using my NYX Soho Glam Collection for now.
Lea Journo Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner
It may say on the packaging that it’s for all hair types, but it totally isn’t. I feel like a lot of this blog post is just going to be me complaining, which is terrible because I don’t usually complain about beauty products. A year ago, I wouldn’t be talking about beauty products at all. I’d just buy whatever made my hair soft and my cheeks less red. Anyway, the shampoo and conditioner made my quite dry hair extremely oily. At first, I assumed it was my fault and assumed I hadn’t washed my hair properly enough. But no. I used it again and the same thing happened. And I still didn’t throw it out. I think it must be the pretty packaging/the water-like design.
NARS Bronzer (Laguna)
Okay, I can’t possibly complain about this one. I hadn’t know what real bronzer was until I tried this one. I had been stuck using an $8 bronzer from some strange store in the city. It’s the perfect colour (thanks to my slightly okay friend Mooshki for choosing the colour). I can’t really fault it in any way, especially since it’s just so frigging easy to carry with me. Plus, none of my blushes or bronzers had a mirror, and having mirrors in beauty products is the same as having pockets in dresses. And that, my friends, is happiness.
