Retail Box - Secret Box 14 (Milk_Shake)

I am extremely excited, and thrilled to finally share the contents in this months Secret box 14 from retail box.
I know I'm delayed by a day or two, I remember hiding the box away until it was available to purchase, and I may or may not have forgotten where I had hidden it.

I love the thought of purchasing an item - only to find a lovely surprise, in this case I received two additional surprises.
This month's secret box is a must have for all ladies.
Milk_shake is a salon professional hair care brand, the best part is that it is Paraben, Sulphate and sodium chloride free.
The Milk_shake integrity range also contains organic Muru Muru butter.

Due to all the styling for shoots, constant heat damage, and colour - using a good shampoo, conditioner, and treatment is essential for me.

I love the intense leave-in spray mask treatment, which has also been named the best leave in Conditioner mask at the Hair Magazine Awards 2015.

Unlike most treatments that weigh down hair, and leaves it's dull and stringy - the Milk_shake incredible milk creates body and volume as well as controls frizz.
The secret box 14 retails for R299
However these products are worth:
Integrity Shampoo (300ml) valued at R250
Integrity Conditioner (300ml) valued at
Incredible Milk (150ml) valued at R244
In total the #secretbox14 @retailboxsa is valued at R744 and is a steal for R299
Who wouldn't mind saving R445!
The fact that the scent is divine definitely ticks all my boxes.

If you haven't purchased your secret box as yet, now would be a good time to do so

Creating Kylie Jenner's "Black lip" look

Creating Kylie Jenner's "Black lip" look

Style! What's the latest tends? What's hot off the runway? Replicating celebrity looks?
We all have asked ourselves these questions, and attempted a copy cat look.Here is your quick easy fix on a trendy yet glam look

Recently I have been attempting a black lipstick look - there's a big difference between rocking it the way Kylie Jenner has, and ending up looking like a member of a heavy metal band.
To create the look I used the following products:
  • Ralo BB cream medium to ensure that my face is matified
  • Ralo volume mascara
  • Ralo professional eyeliner pen - black
  • Ralo cosmetics blush - just peachy
  • Ralo cosmetics eye shadow no 07
  • Ralo cosmetics Lipstick 24c

The trick with a black lipstick is to keep your eyes clean, and make sure that the skin looks smooth and hydrated. The lipstick colour will make your eyes pop, so you may have to bulk up on the vitamins and if need be,  a drop or 2 or eye drops for clear sparkly white eyes.
Blemishes and uneven skin tone will be noticed as the lipstick is loud and screams attention.

And that's your style guide by the Paper Dolls

The Kardashian Beauty Launch took place on Friday the 22nd of November at the Sandton City Stuttafords. This event was filled with Kardashian flair and style, with a décor theme of white black with the main focus was definitely gold.  

Upon our Red Carpet entry we were invited in by a topless hunk and were entertained by beautiful melodies from the in-house violinist. There were delicious treats to be enjoyed, a chocolate fountain where one could dip the sweetest of strawberries and crispy dounuts, there were white and gold cupcakes that looked too beautiful to eat, but tasted as heavenly as they looked.  

Among the many guests that were exclusively invited, was the bubbly Jen Su, the gorgeous Chiano Sky; in the midst of the ladies was the handsome Mr. South Africa 2013, John Owens.  Oh and yes Ladies Mr South Africa is a fan of the Kardashians, and he was absolutely delighted to have been there!

The Kardashian beauty range is certainly a spectacular range that caters for all skin types, from nude colour palettes to bright color palettes.  The beauty range embodies the Kardashian panache, making sure that there is every necessary makeup item available to women. From luscious lashes to a 24k gold face illuminator, the Kardashian beauty range as it all.

As we left the event we were sent off with lovely gifts, wrapped in gold and black, we certainly cannot wait to unwrap them. It was certainly a delightful event to have been invited to.

Ladies if you looking for the perfect Kardashian look get to a Stuttafords near you and get your hands on the Kardashian beauty range.
