Two months ago or so the Garnier Micellar Waterwas launched and many reviews were doing the rounds.As much as I wanted to give it a try to let you guys know what I thought of it,I guess I totally missed the bandwagon and then I received the Lipidol Cleansing Oil from Beauty Bulletin and figured I would give this one a miss.
This week’s prompt was Candyland (clickhere to see the full months prompts). What a perfect opportunity for me to use the straight line vinyls I got free when I purchased my christmas set from Because I Shop.EPIC.FAIL.
A week or so ago, I received this product via courier from the awesome fairies over at Beauty Bulletin.The title (hashtag) is probably to emphasise the clear packaging (it came in a clear plastic packet and inside a clear bottle with blue liquid inside, obviously going for the minimalist approach, and it works ,the packaging looks great and the bottle gets the colour from the oil inside.
I subscribe to the awesome review website Beauty Bulletin and have received two sets of products so far,the first was Batiste Dry Shampoo(My Youtube Video Below)
And the second is the products I will be reviewing today Avon’s SuperExtend Liquid Liner and Mascara.
So for the pass few months I have been using the Essence get big! lashes volume curl mascara(R44.50) which I love as you don’t have to apply too many coats to get your desired effect.
I have been struggling to master the art of the winged eyeliner for a very long time and no matter how many videos I youtube’d or how many pintrest tutorials,I checked out I just could not get it right(but that’s a story for another video).Needless to say when then courier pulled up with these product I was excited for days.
I used the product and it is a very good product for the price range.
As you all know I am a huge Chanel fan and of course I need to do the test(comparing the two products)
This is the result;
Left – Chanel Right -Avon
So for me the Chanel took the prize, It’s darker(liquid liner) and adds more volume(mascara).
I had to put on quite a few coats of the Avon mascara for it to be that dark vs 2 coats of the Chanel Mascara
Pricing: Mascara: Avon is about R120 and the Chanel is R485.
The liquid liner was open for about 3 days(supposed to last 6 months after opening) and it was already dry compared to the Chanel which is already 2 months old.
However I must add that for a product in this price it’s a good product and will do what you require it too.
P.S I wanted to do a video(how to),so I could attach it to this post and then eishkom happened and I didn’t have much time thereafter.I will be completing it this week be sure to be on the look out for it.mwah.
Just would like to give a special thanks to Sunè Parris for cleaning up my end greeting and making it nice for your reading pleasure.
About 10 hours ago, it was announced that the latest actor to play the Joker will be Jared Leto.
Now I have my reservations about this, but everyone else had them when it was announced that Heath Ledger would be playing the Joker and look how that turned out(he won an oscar).
Jack Nicholson as the Joker in Batman(1989)
Thanks to Newsrama we have some fan reactions to the news of Heath Ledger being cast as The Joker in The Dark Knight.
“Heath? let’s reminisce on the days of A Knight’s Tale and Ten Things I Hate About You. Heath? The Joker? Bad casting. Bad joke.”
“probably the worst casting of all time.”
“On no, it’s wrong on every level.”
“This is totally bull. I do not at all like this choice.”
“And now begins the second downfall of the Batman series… I hope this is all a joke”
“I am NOT seeing this movie if he is in it.”
“The Joker is a character that needs an actor with gravity. Not some little twerp who got lucky.”
Heath Ledger as The Joker in The Dark Knight(2008)
Heath wowed all of us with his magnificent performance and unfortunately passed away during the editing process of the film.He won an Oscar for his role and cemented his place in our heart’s and minds forever.
Now 6 years later and on the 75th anniversary of the Prince of Crime we usher in the new generation , Joker – Jared Leto

I’m sorry to the Leto Fans and I know he is an amazing actor but the first thing that came to mind when I saw this was – Tik kop(crystal meth addict) , trying to stay on trend with his neon hair. And the Joker fandom is split
Hopefully he will do well and prove most of us wrong.

I pop around to Ralo in Tygervalley to check out their range of GREY nail polish.As I wanted( needed) to find a way to incorporate GREY into my wardrobe as I am still deciding whether or not I will be going grey in hair colour.
They had 4 different shades,an aliminium type colour(pinky),a matte grey(ring and middle finger) ,a glossy grey(index finger) and a silver grey(thumb).
I have had sometime now from yesterday up until today to get a feel for it on my hands and I have grown fond of the matte grey.
Which shade of grey,do you prefer?Let me know in the comments section below.
The twitterverse was a flutter today as news broke that Pharrell Williams will be teaming up with Woolworths on a new campaign or
So let me start off by saying that I am a big Pharrell Williams fan!Truly talented,wholesome,fresh and definetly a fashionista of note!The same can be said about Woolworths lol.
So over the past few months or so Pharrell has had a huge influence on pop culture here with his mounty hats and his cool style/”SWAG”.
Which I’m sure has played a big role on Woolworths choosing him for these campaigns(nothing confirmed wrt what kind of campaigns its going to be).
My question, however, as something else that has also been doing it’s rounds on the twitterverse is, should we be choosing international artists over our local artists’? See my previous blog post, http://intheloopwithcoco.blogspot.com/2015/03/aka-and-george-avakian-go-at-it-on.html?m=1 , where AKA calls George Avakian out about Ace Hood’s perfomance at one of his events.
This isn’t the first time that Woolworths has used internationally famous people to be the face of one of their campaigns, they have previously used celebrities such as Victoria’s Secret Models Joan Smalls and Candice Swanepoel.Should we be un – Happy about this lol or should we hope that this will give a nice opening for South African Designers’ to work hand in hand with such a big name such as Pharrell Williams in the fashion business?
What are your thoughts?Sound off in the comments section below.
Pharrell Williams will be taking on the role of Style Director in collaboration across a series of sustainability-focused projects.
So the Interwebs are going cray cray today with the new hair trend…going grey!
This week I have seen many celeb pics pop up with their new grey hairdo.Making me wish I wasn’t in a corporate environment, so I can take the plunge and just go grey because,I’m lovin’ it(sound like a spokesperson for macdonalds).
What do you think about this new trend?Will you go grey?Sound off in the comments section in the comments section below.
