I picked up this product today at Superdrug. I was really going for the Sleek Gel eyeliner but that was out of stock and has been for quite some time *blah* I then asked the store lady if there was any similar product....she was kind enough to introduce me to this 01 Intense Black gel liner which is new from Maybelline. It also includes a professional brush which is great.
I couldn't wait to get home to try it. It's pure love :)
*Lasts 24HR. Non transfer
*Easy application (fine or thick line)

Who would have ever thought that Milk of Magnesia, the good old remedy for constipation and hyperacidity can actually do wonders for oily skin?
Well lovelies....this ish works!!
After reading a couple of positive reviews on it, I decided to recommend it to a friend who had oily skin. Now the girl won't stop thanking me ;)
Milk of Magnesia keeps the skin dry and matte and can be mixed with your favorite moisturizer and applied right before foundation.
I don't have oily skin but my t zone can get a bit shiny at times....so I'll be grabbing a bottle soon to keep handy in my makeup kit for myself as well as clients.
You don't need to apply a lot else you would look too ashy. A small amount spread evenly on the face would do the job....no need to go over. It is best to apply with a foundation brush or a wedged sponge.
Milk of Magnesia can be found in most drug stores in the medicine aisle. The Phillips brand is 'supposedly' the best so I'll kinda stick to that one.
.....So go grab your Milk :) ...and remember a lil goes a looooooong way.

....seven things about me
I love anything cheesy :-D
I was born and raised in the Caribbean island of St.Vincent and the Grenadines
I laaaaav the beach...well duh *lol*
My mother has been the greatest inspiration in my life. Her faith and love shaped my character
My goal is to complete a professional course in fashion makeup at London MUSE this year
Carnival is my thing! I would love to go Carnival island hopping one of these years
I am allergic to five fingers and pineapples
.....and that's it ;)
I don't have 15 bloggers to award as you can tell *lol*
So I took these Go dusts for granted ;(
I have had these neon colored dusts for about three years now. To be honest......I um kinda forgot about em. While rummaging through my makeup junk earlier this week, I came across them so I decided to do some swatches and a mini review.
These dusts are extremely powdery and messy *thats the first thing I hated about them EW!* and applies best when a white base is used and possibly some eyelash adhesive. The color pay off is great when patted on as opposed to dragged on.
They come in neat mini pots with a pressed cover to give control while getting the product out. I really like that about them because I have 'butter fingers' *sometimes*
However, I really cant say how long they would last as I've never had them on for long periods. My gut instinct tells me they won't though ...sorry guys *lol*
I plan to make use of them for the upcoming carnival season.
All three pots were purchased from the lovely ebay.....ebay rocks!!
