Foundations I Want!

IMG_20170103_223228_770.jpg

1. LANCOME TEINTE IDOLE ULTRA 24H FOUNDATION.

What a long name! So I was walking around the palms shopping mall, and I just saw a random beauty store, then the attendant basically bundles over to this foundation and he basically swore on his life that this is the best he has seen…. like ever! Believe me, he is not lying, he just put a tiny drop on the back of my hand and the coverage was almost unbelievable and do you know what I loved the most? It wasn’t thick, it as light weight as it gets and I felt like it won’t become a mask on my face. But, beware o, the price can shock you. In fact, when I asked the guy ‘what if it breaks? ‘ he started recounting a story of a lady that was in tears because it broke o.

I’ll still buy it sha, I just hope I don’t have a crisis if it breaks.

PRICE: ₦18,000( although in the store it’s 23k, buy it on Jumia.com it’s cheaper)

2. KAT VON D LOCK-IT FOUNDATION.

Sooooo, tbh I have never really tested this foundation, but most of the youtubers I watch swear by it, especially Omabelle, she says its amazing, and the coverage is amazing, since I don’t know much I got a review…..    https://habibadasilva.com/kvd-foundation-review/

  • This foundation is definitely one of the most pigmented/full coverage foundations I’ve ever used. would recommend this foundation for someone who has a lot of imperfections to cover on their face, who doesn’t want to use too many products; this foundation covers blemishes like a dream!
  • It blends really well with a damp sponge/beauty blender. I found it to be too cakey with a stippling/buffing brush.
  • It’s the perfect foundation if you have an important event in a humid/hot atmosphere where you need your foundation to stay on all day with minimal touch ups.
  • Your blush/contour/bronzer/highlighter will adhere amazingly to the foundation and last all day!
  • You don’t need much of the foundation to cover your face because it’s so pigmented.
  • Could be used as a full coverage blemish concealer.

*However there are some cons, check them out on her blog, the only problems really were that she likes light weight foundation that she can wear day to day, it dries quickly and it’s not the best for dry skin.

This one’s price got me shook too, I know some Lagos big girls will say it’s not so bad, but me that I’ve been using ₦3,500 Mary Kay for the longest, this price shook me to my toes.

PRICE: ₦18000( I had to convert the dollar myself, I don’t know if the exchange rate will change and I don’t know charges for delivery/shipping.

XOXO.

GIRL CHAT: Games Men Play 😕😒😒

Girlsss, we need to talk. During this past week it became very evident that men(or rather boys 😒😒) like to play silly mind games. Like I don’t get it?? They put on this false act of bravado in public, but when you get to know them you can only wonder if they knocked their head somewhere because the words coming out of their mouth can only be translated as stupid.

So in my last post, I was saying I have gist, and you know I was sincerely happy to share this story with you guys. When I posted ‘smiles and lace’ I got dressed to ‘end things'(to be completely honest I don’t know why, because I didn’t even know when we started dating 😒😒) with one guy that has been on my case and you will not believe why. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls I had not known this guy for up to a week and already he was talking about him and I having sex! Sex? Are you mad?? Do I look like some naive church girl? I like going to church and I’m celibate doesn’t make me stupid. So, I sha told him we need to chill, I can’t do anything and besides I don’t know him, he goes okay, I was excited, over the moon ecstatic, finally!!! It’s over! Butttt, this boy doesn’t quit, he calls me and tells me he wants to meet that he can’t “let me go”, what the fudge??? I sha met him again and explained why nothing can work out between us, but, once again boys proved that they are block heads and deaf, but this time I wasn’t having it, we didn’t talk. Now, fast forward 2 weeks later and this boy calls me and says “I’m tired of you being a naughty girl, I’m coming to see you” is this guy mad? Was he really thinking during that time I’ll miss him and decide to sleep with him?? Or was he just thinking he can call me and meet me when he misses me?? Please if this is not stupidity tell me? Funny thing is he is not the only one! My friend had this same issue!

This guy basically just met her and all he wants to talk about is gives( gives is like everything apart from the actual intercourse) and can you believe she tells him no, because she’s not about that life and next thing this boy is willing to ask her out, why?? Because of gives o, Gives! 😑😑 They are not even together o (except in his head), it has only been 24 hours since he asked her out and suddenly he is talking about them meeting at his place??? What the fudge?? For what o? Apparently his birthday is on Saturday and since she won’t be available, he wants them to ‘spend time together’😒.

I’m calling out all the guys that do this nonsense, stop! It’s unattractive! 😒 and it proves once more why they have to split men and women as two different species because most of you guys are block brained and need cane. If you read my blog and you do this nonsense, stop it please. Girls, I want to hear your opinions, are men really oblivious to their stupidity or do they just like to play dumb? 😒

❤❤❤❤.

SMILES and LACE.

We often wonder,
where happiness starts.
The journey usually begins,
in our individual hearts.

img_20170217_115448_270

All the fortunes in this world,
shall not make our spirits sing.
It’s amazing how much joy,
a new dress seems to bring.

img_20170217_115521_688

Happiness is processed,
a million times inside each mind.
The secret is no secret,
just be positive and kind.

img_20170217_115618_684

The happiness you find in a new dress,
pleasure and satisfaction it brings
You can’t help but laugh at how ridiculous you feel!
Everything that makes us smile starts with the little things.

I hope you like this post, I was super excited the day I took these pictures and I kept talking and laughing 😂😂. Also, you guys need to hear what happened to me! Watch out for girl chat this week 😉😉.

So I found this beautiful poem on Anita poems, and I feel like this embodies everything I was feeling when I took those pictures .

Speed Dating😊

I know a lot of people won’t have anything to do on the 14th and may just be looking to have good time(like me), soooo, I have something for you, out of the goodness of my heart and the love I have for all the people that take the time to read, leave comments and like my posts, I  doing my very first giveaway!!!!

It’s not huge, but it’s something I hope you like or are interested in. It’s speed dating and the reason I’m excited about this one is because you bring books and you exchange with your partner(just for a while, don’t worry you don’t have to give your books out, it gave me a fright too) which I find refreshing and cool. It’s the best ice-breaker and conversation starter and also gives you a better idea of the person’s personality and efficiently helps you decide immediately if you like the person or not! It’s amazing!

This is how the give away will go:

1. Read the post(obviously😂)

2. Drop a comment, good or bad, who cares(just joking let it be good o) it’s not on a first come first serve basis, but, the more you wash in your comment, the greater your chances of winning(this is expo o, if you drop comments on other posts too……just know I am seeing you)

3. Tweet about the event and giveaway tag me @kome_obi and @booksbarterng, also it’s not by most retweets,but, the more the retweets the greater your chances of winning too o

4. Post on instagram and tag me too (if you don’t have instagram use facebook, if you don’t have twitter also use facebook)

P. S – you don’t have to follow me, buttttttt, it won’t hurt if you do right 😉😉

And for all those that have eyes but didn’t read the banner, food and drinks will be given 😂😂

❤❤❤❤.

INSPIRATION!!

Hey guyss, welcome to the month of love! I’m in such a great mood already and I can smell romance in the air! It’s always super exciting when everyone tries to be romantic and cute to their ‘significant’ other and I especially can’t wait for Valentine’s Day!

So, for all my sisters that have dates already and already have plans for the 14th, here are some dresses I think some of you might be interested in! I have a lot of things in store for February! I am so excited!

img_20170201_212709_637
I love this look 😍, I like how easy and comfy it looks! It’s something everyone will comfortable wearing and the peplum gives a lot of space to eat too! And that colour 🔥 🔥

These 2 dresses are very sexy, very much in the spirit of Valentine’s Day! Butttt, don’t wear it if you don’t have a flat stomach or you plan on eating, don’t try it o, once you wear these dresses forget food or comfort.😂

These 2 give me such an easy going vibe! I feel they are the perfect combo of comfy and sexy, the slits and all the peek-a-boo areas are very sensual, but the colourful material gives it such a playful vibe!

img_20170201_212629_279

img_20170201_212842_208
The last 2 are for the women that carry Valentine’s day on their heads, the ones that know they’ll be going somewhere high end and have to impress. Don’t wear the gele (hair tie) I feel it won’t go well for the whole Valentine’s thing .

I hope this helps!

CLEAR SHOES!

Hey guys! I recently rekindled my love for instagram within the past week and I finally get why people love it so much! everytime I scroll through my timeline I always see the prettiest clear shoes, I can’t say much, but I am in love! I really really wish I had them and lemme not lie I ordered one, even though it’ll dent my already ugly account balance, but who cares, its all for fashion.

The Art of Posing.

Just before I started taking this blog seriously something I was very scared of was posing because I fall under the category : camera awkward. Once someone holds a camera in front of me I sort of lose myself and become not even shy, awkward. So, I watched lots of videos on taking pictures, posing, editing and one thing I got is ‘be your most authentic self’. I like to be silly, joke around, and I almost never take anything seriously,but, it was sort of difficult to come to terms with the fact I can’t have iconic shots like most bloggers and I don’t think I can be as model-like as them. So i decided to celebrate my awkwardness, I’m posting random pictures from the ones I took today before church.

Celebrate your short falls and showcase your difference, be the most authentic version  of of yourself, always.
