Product Review: Rimmel London Brow Shake Filling Powder

I love experimenting with new makeup, and Rimmel London is one of my favourite makeup brands. So you can imagine how happy I was to be one of the first people to try the new Rimmel London Brow Shake Filling Powder. These beauties landed on my doorstep some days ago, and they have kept me very busy.

CONS

None.

I can’t fault this product or any of the shades. I think it is a smart invention to have all 3 in one product. My favourite shade is the 002 medium brown. I think that shade suits me the most.

Natural Hair Transition Almost Complete

So for those who do not know, I decided to stop applying relaxers or chemicals to my hair, and let it grow naturally instead. I made this decision because I was tired of how unhealthy my hair. It was in a terrible state, with severe breakage and no edges, and that was because I was not giving my hair the care it needed to strive. I have neglected my hair over the years by not applying the right daily treatment, and just burying it under one weave or another. It got to a point, it became too embarrassing to show off my natural hair even at the hair dressing salon, because the hair stylists would always have a rude comment to make about how badly my hair was breaking. Like it was not partly their fault, lol.

I took this photos some days ago and I am very impressed with how healthy my hair is looking. I honestly cannot remember when last my hair was this healthy. My edges are back and kicking, my hair is super thick and strong. There has been very little shredding since I took my cornrows out (I usually have my hair in cornrows). And the only way for my natural hair seems to be up!

I didn’t do the “big chop” because I didn’t want to drastically get rid of the relaxed ends. However I plan to trim off the ends in the next few days. And I see my hair going fully natural in the next 3 months at the latest.

I am very happy with my current hair routine. I think it is working great for my hair. I treat my hair daily with Almond Oil and water in my spray bottle. I apply African Pride Shea Butter Miracle Moisture Intense Leave-in conditioner every other day. I wash my hair with Shea Butter Moisture Shampoo and Restorative Conditioner once a week when I take off my cornrows. I also use the Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque once in 4 weeks. I also apply TTT4Z Hair Food every other day for extra nourishment.

My daughter also has the same hair routine I have, and her beautiful curly hair is how my hair was at her age; how I want it to be now. Her hair is another reason why I went natural. It brought back lovely memories. Hair goals all the way!

Product Review: Salvotore Ferragamo Signorina Eau de Parfum

You should all know by now that I am a recovering perfume addict. Well if you didn’t know, now you do. I love smelling nice so I make sure I never run out of perfumes.

This is my first Salvotore Ferragamo perfume. I have heard a lot about the brand and I have been dying to try some of the products but never had the opportunity until some weeks ago.

I came across this Salvotore Ferragamo Signorina Eau de Parfum while holidaying in Milan. Once I took a sniff, I knew I had to have it, so I was well impressed to receive a 50ml bottle as a surprise gift.

Here is the perfume product description –

‘Signorina’ eau de parfum is the perfect alliance of elegance and memorable. The bright fizzy notes of currant spiced by fresh pink pepper bring a joyful, cheeky character which complements the green vegetal notes. A generous dewy petal note made up of fresh jasmine, rosy peony and the chic femininity of rose offers a creative floral aspect. The airy and creamy texture of panna cotta blended together with soft musks and intriguing woody patchouli notes offer a racy Italian elegance and an unexpected addictiveness.

Top notes: pepper (rose/pink), blackcurrant buds (cassis)

Middle notes: jasmine, peony, rose

Base notes: patchouli, musk, pannacotta accord

I have used this perfume for some weeks now, here are my thoughts:

 

PROS

  1. The pretty bottle was the first thing to catch my eye. I love the pink bow at the top. The packaging is so beautiful, the bottle looks stunning on my dressing table.
  2. It has a light, airy fragrance that smells amazing.
  3. It is quite affordable. Prices start from Β£44 and go up to Β£83 for 30ml, 50ml and 100ml bottles, so there is a bottle for everyone.

CONS

  1. I wish it was more long-lasting. It did stay on for a few hours but I expected to stay on for the day or so.

Overall, I do recommend thisΒ Salvotore Ferragamo Signorina Eau de Parfum. It is a lovely perfume with a sweet fragrance, so it is definitely worth trying.
