Sukin Purifying Facial Masque Review

In this post, I will be reviewing the Sukin Purifying Facial Masque.

I am aware of the Sukin brand. I’ve used their moisturisers before and I find that the natural ingredients did wonders for my skin. When I received the mask, I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed the minute I checked out the ingredients: aloe vera, rosehip oil, koalin clay, Vitamin E…all of them have endless benefits for the skin and even hair.

My verdict

I have to say that I was really happy with this face mask. Usually, I use my Neem and Turmeric Mask or my Bentonite Clay/ACV (self made) mask, but I’m glad I got the opportunity to try it out. The mask itself isn’t heavy, it’s very light and easy to apply.

I didn’t experience the tightness you usually do with other clay masks which was another bonus. You don’t need a large amount of product to cover the face and you will feel a slight tingle in your face within minutes (it’s nothing to be concerned about, it’s just the mask working its magic).

After 15 minutes, the mask starts to dry and by that time, its penetrated into your skin. The first time I used the mask, I left it on for 15 minutes but the second time I used it, I left it on for an extra five-ten minutes. When I removed the mask, I noticed that my skin looked refreshed, renewed and much brighter than usual. I’d definitely recommend this mask, especially if you want a quick pick-me-up for your skin after a long week. It’s important to remember that your skin needs to de-stress and detox just as much as your body does.

Pros: mask contains natural ingredients, minimal product is needed, dries really quickly, price, packaging.

Cons: tingling sensation may be off putting if you don’t use face masks a lot.

Overall, this purifying mask has really worked wonders on my skin. First of all, I love that its pink (because I’m super girly) and second of all, it doesn’t crack like other masques do, it literally feels and looks like all the amazing ingredients have sunk into your skin. I would definitely recommend this product.

The Sukin Purifying Facial Masque is priced at £10.15 and is available to purchase at Feel Unique .

Juvia’s Place The Saharan II Palette Review

In this post, I’ll be reviewing the Juvia’s Place Saharan II palette.

I purchased this palette around a month ago from Beauty Bay because I’ve heard so many vloggers and bloggers mention Juvia’s Place palettes and how amazing they look on women of colour. I’ll share pictures of the swatches, the palette itself and the look I created. (Please be kind because when it comes to eyeshadow application, I am not a connoisseur. I probably struggle just as much as the majority of women out there do!)

The Juvia’s Place palettes were specifically created with women of colour (WoC) in mind and this is why I really wanted to do this review.

At first, I was very skeptical about purchasing a eye shadow palette for £20. I definitely read some reviews beforehand and I’d advise any of you who are interested in this product to do the same.

As you can see from the swatches, all of the shades in this palette compliment darker skin tones beautifully. The palette comprises of a combination of metallic, duo chrome and matte shades. I assume that the matte shades should be used as transition shades (something that helps to merge colours together) and the others shades are meant for the lids only.

What I love about this palette the most is that the shades are highly pigmented. A little really does go a long way, so don’t expect to run out of a certain shade anytime soon. I find that with two-three light strokes with a eyeshadow brush, I am able to get a very good coverage so take it from me, less is more.

As mentioned earlier, I’m not amazing at applying eyeshadow but I found it very easy with this palette.With Moroccan inspired influences, the rich patterns will have you feeling and looking like a goddess.

Below is a picture of the look I created. I used the shades Nomad and Fez.

Pros: all shades are easy to apply, not a lot of product is needed to get a good amount of coverage, nice variety of colours which compliment darker complexions, highly pigmented shades, fingertips can be used to place product on lids, good value for money.

Cons: pricing may be an issue if you aren’t crazy about spending a little bit extra on a eye shadow palette but on the other hand, because a small amount of product is needed, this is a product that will last for quite some time. When it comes to makeup, everyone has their preferences: its either high street, in between or premium. Always wear makeup that makes you look and feel your best.

Personally, I’m very glad I went ahead and bought this palette and I’m actually very tempted to buy another one! If you’ve used any other Juvia’s Place palettes, please feel free to drop your recommendations in the comments section below.

The Juvia’s Place Saharan II palette is priced at £20.00 and can be purchased from Beauty Bay.

Issa Weekend Look!

Hi guys, welcome to my space.

 I would like to share products I used to create a girly and glamorous weekend look.

IMG_E6590

Foundation: IMAN Cosmetics Second to None Cream to Powder Foundation in Earth 3 

I’ve been using products from IMAN Cosmetics for about two years now. My fave foundations are the Cream to Powder (above) and the Stick Foundation. Cream to Powder is really easy to apply and it makes my skin look flawless.

Eyeshadow: NYX Hot Singles: Colour HS24 Dayclub

I bought my second Hot Singles eyeshadow last weekend and it needs to stop there! I really love this colour. The brown-gold hues really compliment my skintone.

Setting Powder: Sacha Cosmetics Buttercup Setting Powder

I’ve been using this for over a year now. I’m being really frugal with my setting powder right now because it’s sold out every wear. This setting powder is really good if you have oily/combination skin. It really does keep your makeup in place.

Lips: Revlon Superlustrous Lipstick in the shade Naughty Plum 

The latest addition to my lipstick collection. I love the colour, its easy to apply. What else can I say? I love a good lippy!

Concealer: LA Girl Pro Conceal HD High Definition Concealer in the shade Chestnut

LA Girl Pro Concealers are a makeup must have. If you don’t own one then I suggest you get one. I use mine to cover my hyperpigmentation and clean up my brows.

Eyeliner: Revolution HD Pro Smoky Eyeliner (waterproof) 

This eyeliner is amazing. I love how pigmented the colour is. You can also blend it if you want a fuller effect.

Mascara: Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara: Blackest Black

This mascara really lengthens my lashes and it didn’t smudge.

Brows: Revlon Colorstay Brow Pencil in the shade Dark Brown and Revlon Colorstay Brow Mousse in the shade Dark Brown 

These two products are my new brow staples!

Face Powder: Black Up Two Way Cake in the shade TWO4

I can’t survive without this powder. Although its pricey, the two way cake keeps skin matte for hours and it also contains Vitamins A and E (which stop ageing).

Setting Spray: Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray 

Since I was introduced to this marvellous wonder last year, I can’t get enough. I always make sure I have one at home and one in my bag. The travel size version of this spray is £10.00. All you need is two-three sprays to keep your makeup in place.

(My crochet braids are X-Pression Senegalese Twist Large 24” Pre Looped and they are from Spell Beauty.)

I hope you have enjoyed this quick post!
