ASALAAM-WA-LAIKUM LADIES ,
To all make-up addicts and artist , this product is finally available in South Africa by the lovely people from MYBEAUTYWISHLIST and MUSA.SA .

MUSA SA – [email protected] or find them on Instagram – MUSE.SA
For the longest time ever I wanted to get my hand on this product after seeing so many of my favorite youtubers using this product and seeing how amazing the colors are.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT :
The Palette itself is made out of smooth cardboard , very compact with a magnetic closing . There are 6 pans inside the palette with the top row having the 3 highlight shades and the bottom row the 3 contour shades . All these shades are powder based and matte except the shade Sand which has a little bit of shimmer . Each of these individual pans is held by a magnetic bottom , which makes it removable and replaceable if the shade is finished .

SWATCHES OF ALL 6 SHADES :

SWATCHES OF CONTOUR SHADES :
I think this is a great Palette for MAKE-UP artist in particular , because of the range of shades available for highlighting and contouring. It makes it suitable for almost every skin tone. I also think this can be a great beginner kit as well. With that being said, many of these shades can be found in a dupe, meaning other brands with just the specific color that suits you, however not in this format or in such superior texture.
HOW I USE THIS PALLETE :
I start off by applying my foundation and under eye concealer. Then I use the banana shade from the pallet and a sigma brush to set my under eye concealer . ( this helps with under eye creasing and highlights that area that the same time )
I then take the contour shade java and curve out my cheek bones using a small blending brush. Now taking the color fawn and a angled brush, I start blending that together in an upward motion so that there is no harsh lines visible.
If you want to intensify the contour, which I do occasionally, you can apply the banana shade right under the contour and blend it out.
If you are going for a night function and would like to have a glow, Use the Sand highlighting powder just above where you would apply blush on both sides. This will give a beautiful glow to the skin .
N.B. because this is a powder base kit , apply on a small area to see for skin irritation or breakout .
Hope you enjoyed this post

ASALAAM-WA-LAIKUM LADIES ,
Over the last few months I have heard many ladies raving about how awesome Argan oil is. I started doing some research on the oil and after reading many reviews and article and considering the price I finally decided to purchase this oil. Argan oil is an organic product extracted from the kernel of the Argan tree found mainly in Morocco . It is extremely rich in fatty acid and vitamin E . It’s properties make it particularly beneficial for the hair and skin .
BENEFITS FOR THE SKIN :
Argan oil is most commonly used as a skin moisturizer to hydrate and soften the skin . With it’s high vitamin E and fatty acid, argan oil gives skin a natural boost . It’s anti-oxidant effect makes argan oil the ideal anti- aging product , it reduces the visibility of wrinkles and restores elasticity .
Where many oils and moisturisers can exacerbate skin conditions such as eczema , acne , dry or itchy skin , argan oil will benefit immensely , argan oil soothes afflicted skin and promotes healing .
Applying just a few drops on the affected area or even as a moisturizer just before sleeping will keep your skin feeling softer and will help your skin rejuvenate during the night .
MY REVIEW :
After reading much about this oil , for a very long time I was looking for a good organic solution for my skin type ( combination skin , pimply ) and I finally decided to purchase this oil . I have been applying this oil for atleast 2 months every night before bedtime and I must say I am impressed. My skin feels so soft and just not me , but my family friends also see a difference in my skin.
I have this natural glow permanently on my skin as well as no break out at all which is the best part.
I must say I never thought argan oil is this good , I highly recommend this to everyone .
My bottle is almost empty and I have re purchased this product .
MOROCCAN MUD MASK :
This goes so well with Argan oil. I purchased this together with the argan oil as a combo ,It comes in it’s pure and most origanal form , all you have to do is crush and make a paste . This product really surprised me , I have being using this atleast once a week and this makes on face look like I have a natural highlight .
1 way to make the paste :
2 pieces of the mud mask
2 drops argan oil
rose water / normal water
3 drops juice of fresh lemon
crush together , make paste and gently apply on the face . Leave for atleast 15 minutes or until completely dry and rinse off .
