I am always on the prowl for a liquid eyeliner that does a great job, but sometimes they end up being disappointing and do not live up to their claims. Especially when it is a budget friendly item, you do not always get what you pay for. So when I received this product to try, I was a bit sceptical to say the least.
At first use I realised that I was judging a book by it’s price.
Application is a breeze with this product. Because it has a thin tipped brush, it enables you to create a very thin and precise line with ease. It dries within seconds which also makes this product virtually smudge proof. That is a huge plus for me as I hate it when my eyeliner messes up my makeup
Colour payoff on this eyeliner is also very good. With it being highly pigmented the colour literally goes pop. What probably impressed me the most is the lasting power. It lasts me the whole day without smudging halfway through the day and it does not affect removal at all. Removal is quick and easy.
Overall I am happy with this product and if you are looking for a budget friendly liquid eyeliner that lasts the whole day, then this is the one for you.
They come in 6 colours: Black Sparkle, Black, Blue, Turquoise, Dark Brown and Brown and you can find them at Clicks stores nationwide and it will only set you back R44.95.
For months I have been hearing about this beauty brand and that it was only available in certain Clicks stores. So when curious me got to try out a Red and a Glittery polishes I was rather happy.
I generally hate red on nails but decided I would use it paired with a glittery red on an accent finger. I totally love the brush , smooth strokes and no excessive polish dripping all over. I used a base coat and 2 coats of the polish. Extremely impressed as its lasted me 5 days before it started chipping and that to me was the sign to remove it. During the festive season I tried on the glittery on I used it as an overcoat of a beige/brown colour. I had to use several coats to get the colours of the glitter evenly over my nail. Once on it was rather pretty and I did get a few compliments. And the removing the glitter polish was a nightmare it took me ages, I scrapped and had to soak my nails. I wasn’t impressed with that and since then I have not used glitter polishes again.
I am keen to try out the other colours and products in the Wet n Wild range, I just wish more stores with stock them.

If you love glitter on your nails, then you are going to love this product. I received the ‘At wild call’ colour to play with and had a lot of fun trying it out. If you don’t know Wet ‘n Wild products then you should probably know that it is a very affordable American drugstore brand. And if you think that because it is affordable that it might lack in quality then you are seriously mistaken. I received a few of their goodies and are seriously falling in love with the brand. What makes this nail glitter seriously cool is the fact that the glitters are not round in shape, but they are actually hexagonal in shape, which makes for a very cool and different effect. It is a thick consistency that has two shades of glitter, one shade being bigger hex’s and the second shade a smaller hex, in a clear polish. In the one I tested the big glitters were purple/lavender and the small glitters were pink. I first used a very nude colour as a base and when it dried I added one coat of the glitter on top. Do not be alarmed about the thick consistency because it actually caught enough glitters for one nail. If you want to cover more of your nail with glitters then I would suggest you using more than one coat. Now the staying power of this product is amazing. I wore this nail polish for 5 days and still I had no chips! And because I wore the glitter coat on top, it actually protected my bottom nude coat. The picture with it on my nails was not taken on day one, but actually on day 4, just to illustrate how long it stays on. We actually had done a bit of home renovations in the week I wore it and not even that could strip my nails of it’s glitter. For me that is pretty impressive! Sometimes when we try and remove glitter from our nails, it becomes quite a time consuming exercise. Not in this case. Removal was a snap. I cannot wait to get my hands on more of these colours. You can buy Wet ‘n Wild products at selected Clicks stores and the Mega Rocks Range retails at about R59.95 each.

Wet n Wild is a buzz word in my articles recently as I have a lot of items to play with! The last thing I’ve used from my Wet n Wild box of tricks has been their Balm Stain.
Essentially the product looks like a giant crayon which you can mechanically twist upwards when you start to use the product and contains a cream finish stain for your lips. No glitter and only a very light and subtle shimmer. Perfect for day wear or evening wear without looking lips looking too over the top. I believe after a fair amount of use the point will round like most lipsticks do but that is not a huge deal.
The colour I am wearing here is the E128 and I am not sure if it has another name but its a gorgeous baby pink colour.
The staying power is pretty impressive. After about 2 hours the main colour fades evenly onto the lips leaving a light stain behind which still looks flawless. After eating I felt like I needed to touch my lips up otherwise I felt they were good to go even while drinking.
The main drawback for me for this product is that the plastic cap that covers the lip stain is not very sturdy and can come loose easily which is a bit of a worry when placed in an expensive handbag.
In total there are 5 different shades in the Megaslicks range from Wet n Wild and are all available from selected Clicks stores nationwide at R49.95 each.
