Remington (Keratin & Argan Oil Nourish) Straightening Brush Review- Before & After photos

Remington Keratin and Argan Straightening Brush Review

Remington Straightening Brush Review

Best straightening brush for thick hair

I straightened my hair after almost 5 years so I can't be called a pro but I have still clocked a fair bit of hours straightening my mane in the mid 2000's when it was all the rage. My GHD's from those days are still going strong so I guess that was money well spent!

MAC Retro Matte Collection is back with 12 swooning shades! All details & review of 3 liquid lipsticks in here!

MAC retro matte collection review

And MAC retro mattes are back! At your nearest MAC store, 12 new nude-ish shades of Retro matte liquid lip colors are now on sale. With $50 NZD a pop, they sure as hell don't come cheap but they do pack a punch. I already a own a few shades from MAC Retro matte range (Feels so Grand, Kabuki 'This Modern Age') and couldn't be more happier with new subtler, more everyday shades. I feel the lighter shades in Retro mattes are a better pick than dark bold ones as after a lot of eating, the colors do seem to fade out near the inner lip. With nude shades, you wouldn't have that distinctive line. Of corse, things will be a lot forgivable if a lip liner is used underneath, which I never do, for research purposes.

I was sent 3 shades from this collection and its safe to say I love them- Burnt spice (Creamy Dirty Rose), Carnivorous (a blackened red) and Ess-presso (Deepened Chocolate Brown). Ess-presso might not be my pick for an everyday wear shade but I have fallen head over heels for Burnt Spice. Such a beautiful nude shade for my medium ethnic skin. It works a charm. There's hardly any pink in it when I put it on my lips but it still works.

Back Pain Update- I was cured of 1.5 years of back pain in 40 minutes!! This is NOT a drill...


If you are not aware of my Chronic back pain journey, You should totally read this blog post first- Here's to the most painful year http://www.lipsnberries.com/2016/09/heres-to-most-painful-year.html

Done? Moving on..Here's an update. I cured my back pain. My hope did! My mind did! My determination to find a cure did. And because it happened, I'm making sure I let everyone know about it coz back pain or any other chronic pain is a ghost illness. It is depression and hopelessness & all the negativity you can find rolled into one. A very dark place to be! The place you don't wish upon your best enemies. I wanted to let you guys know of my cure because you were a part of this painful journey. This letter posted below was sent to 8 people that treated me in the past 1.5 years- 3 Specialists, 2 Physio's, 1 Chiropractor, 1 GP & 1 ACC personnel (healthcare agency of NZ). I felt they should know the cure because they are in a far better position than me to help thousand others. They are the front-line soldiers. This letter is copied word to word from what was emailed to them. I would like you to share this post with anyone in your life suffering with Chronic pain or any other chronic illness. Education about this is vital. You have no idea how immensely you can enrich someone's life. If you have any more questions, leave me a comment or send me a personal message on my email lipsnberries@gmail.com , my Instagram handle or my blog Facebook page. I'll be more than happy to answer all your queries. I have a million other things to say but I'll spare you this time...

Becca Cosmetics Illuminating Skin Perfector in 'Champagne Pop' -Highlighter Review

Becca jaclyn hill highlighter in Champagne Pop review

Highlighters are my thing. I don't mind glowing like a disco ball. Disco balls are my thing!
Having dry skin means I love a slick looking face. To me it looks healthy. Like you're human you know. So when you have skin that's scarce on oils..you fake it! And fake it like a disco ball.
If there's one makeup item that takes my makeup next level, it is a highlighting powder (Ok..lipstick is pretty close. but you get the drift right?).

With flash!
There's one highlighter that literally took the makeup world by storm late 2015.. Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop. You can't be called a makeup enthusiast if you don't know about this one. Everyone raved about it, everyone rushed to buy it. I waited and waited...for the hype to die down. It didn't. The fan base was ever growing. This Jaclyn Hill collaboration easily took Becca Cosmetics to new heights. Heck! there's people like me who knew nothing much about Becca and now they are all over it.
