Wig Wig Wigs

IMG_1137.jpg

They are so on trend right now that even our favourite white celebs are admitting to wearing them.

So what happened to cause this big shift in perception you may ask…?

Because I think it all started with the natural hair movement. It has literally taken over and women really want to take care of their hair.

I don’t think thats a bad thing, infact I encourage it, just make sure your using natural hair products and not the cheap knock offs of ‘argan oil’ they sometimes sell in the dodgy hair shops.

And if you are looking for a secure, perfectly fitting, beautiful wig piece. Head over to our site and view our new selection. We got that Brazilian wavy for ya.

Nicki Minaj- Mac Viva Glam Lipgloss

Love this lipgloss, brought this for the bright summer months and it did me just fine.

It applies beautifully and you don’t need to add any lipstick just to get more colour. Tastes of vanilla and stays on your lips without fading.

Was definitely a worthwhile purchase but not sure if they have this range in stores anymore. Hope they do because I want more!

Whilst shopping in Croydon a few weeks back, I came across a young girl with some fierce nails.

As I was so impressed I had ask her where she got them done but it actually turned out that she did them herself. Her Aztec designs were amazing!

As my birthday was coming up I invited her over to test out some funky patterns. Here are a few pics of what she did for me.

Will definitely be inviting her to the House Full of Girls again!

photobenefit

Make Up Mole has suggested we put this product to the test.

Benefits Invisible stick is supposed to make your foundation stay on for 15 hours! hmmm, I’m curious.

Luckily, this weekend we will be out and about, heading to events and video shoots.

We will definitely get the evidence we need.

Fashion: Sunshine, Parties & Sleek Mystique

We at the the House Full of Girls, all strongly and passionately agree, you can never go wrong with sleek mystique. It was  our colour of the weekend, we all rocked it!

Phoebe rocked it to a house party with her funky coloured  top from H&M and teamed it with some high waisted jeans.

Yvonne wore it with her sexy black dress from Asos to hit the clubs. Really like the cut out detail in the arm.

I wore it with my floaty, patterned H&M top and some very short shorts. (well it was hot!) Had to enjoy the sunshine 🙂

NYX Cosmetics- Lipsticks and Jumbo Pencil in Photos

photored2photopink2,3photopink3photo nyx lippy

NYX Lipstick MLS 18 (Red) I always find it difficult to fall in love with a red colour but I think this works with me quite well. One of my favs at the moment.

MLS 17 (top left) This colour is the darkest of the pinks and  bit more subtle. It’s more of a purply pink.  MLS 02 (bottom right) is vibrant and stands out more. I think both the colours are great, can’t decide between the two in the mornings!

Black Jumbo Pencil- Quick Smokey Eye

White Jumbo Pencil- As you can see the colour stands out more on my left eye where I have used the pencil as a base. The colour is definitely more vibrant on the left than on the right.

I was talking to make up mole about running out of my MAC translucent powder and wanting to find an alternative.

She kindly directed me to Elf.co.uk

They sell translucent powder for just under £4. Just ordered!

Check them out for great priced make up.

IMATS(4)NYX Cosmetics

As we were walking around the show, I noticed a long queue for one make up brand in particular, NYX. Now I didn’t have a clue about this brand but I queued up anyway (never one to miss out!). I’m glad I did as I was not disappointed.

They are a very popular, affordable make up brand and most important of all their make up is amazing.

Other people I got talking to were showing me their NYX favourite’s. So I’ve written for you a few NYX must haves:

White Jumbo Eye Pencil- This was recommended by a fellow make up artist who uses it as a base for eye shadows. I was encouraged by the fact she told me it really brings out  colour particularly in brown skins (purchased). Really makes a difference tried it myself.

Black Jumbo Pencil- excellent for a quick smokey eye

Matte Lipsticks- Very long lasting and not too matte if you know what I mean. Usually I find with matte lipsticks  that my lips dry out very quickly. I don’t have this problem with this lipstick at all. Favourite matte at the moment.

IMATS (3)-Make up Designory ( MUD)

Now I have never seen this make up brand before but I have to say I was very impressed by the quality of their product. We were curious about their cream foundations and were a bit disappointed to discover their limited range for women of colour. However my opinion changed when we were given an impressive demonstration of how their product could work for us.

photo (98)

MuD foundations are made up of 55% pigmentation! Not only that, they are silicone based meaning that when mixed with a water based product i.e a primer, it’s soluble (blends together smoothly unlike oil based products)

The smoothness and application ease was second to none, it literally melted into the skin. Flawless application.

The lady demonstrating even went on to say the longest she had worn the product was 3 days, without it coming off! (not sure if this is a good or bad thing)

However if you are looking for a foundation with long staying power then this is it!
