Garnier Micellar Wipes – Review

Two months ago or so the Garnier Micellar Water was 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.

#ClearyLipidol ; Lipidol Cleansing Oil Review

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.

Avon SuperExtend Winged Out Liquid Liner and Mascara

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.
essence mascara - get big! lashes
essence mascara - get big! lashes
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;
chanel vs avon liquid liner and mascara
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.

Prince of Crime – Jared Leto as the Joker

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).

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.”
“Hell NOOOOOOOOOOOOO”
“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 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 fan reaction #Jokerleto

Hopefully he will do well and prove most of us wrong.

Autumn / Winter 2015 Colour Trends : Not all things are black and white sometimes it’s GREY!

As summer is drawing to a close and most of the fashion shows for the AW 2015 season have been showcased,one of the stand out colours for the season is definitely GREY.

A few weeks ago,I posted about the new GREY hair trend and I see it has been picking up in popularity in my news feed and timeline.Click here to see my previous post.

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.

Pharrel Williams with Woolies

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.
UPDATE:
Pharrell Williams will be taking on the role of Style Director in collaboration across a series of sustainability-focused projects.

Grey Hair Don’t Care

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.

AKA and George Avakian twitter war

 I was scrolling through my twitter feed earlier and came across, something interesting.

@akaworlwide and @georgeavakian going at it,about an event, that it seems was planned by George head ining international artist Ace Hood.
It looked as first as AKA  had a valid point in pointing out that we put too much spotlight on international artists and not enough on our local artist.
Then George replied to the effect of AKA having sour grapes for not being a part of the event.
AKA then replies with a DM that was sent by George offering him 25K to perform at the event.
See the exchange between the two below ;

What do you think?Was this beef just created to get some publicity for the events AKA and George have planned for this weekend or is it for real?Sound off in the comments below
AKA will be performing at the Miss South Africa event on Sunday 29th March and George at the Maboneng event on the 28th(My birthday!)
Peace and Love
