I am really thankful to God for adding another year to my life for some reason i was not excited initially but i realised that for me to be alive is all God so i became hyped about it and i decided to celebrate it with my friends. Where are my manners? I hope your week is going as great as mine? I was actually going to tell you all about my day but i feel i am going to bore you (just in case you care to know how it went down add me on sc: ms_tomiii) but in summary it was lit!

Kylie Lip Kit Review

Hello TPJays! I hope this month has been good, it has been lit for me. Can you remember i promised you something big? That thing is finally here and it is a giveaway, it is big to me because it is my first giveaway and i am so excited. But before we go into the giveaway i would be reviewing my Kylie lippies.

Finally, I laid my hands on some Kylie Lip kit. I tried to get them at the launch but they literally sold out in seconds, i tried during every re-stock but i never got them. During one of the restocks in May i was able to purchase one of her metal lipstick (i only got one because i was broke at that time), you won't believe i have not laid my hands on the one i got in May. When i purchased my first Kylie lippie i was trying to save so i did not order it to the UK (international shipping was double the lippie), instead i ordered it to US cause my parents were there at the moment and they planned on coming to UK after so i thought they would be able to bring it to me but unfortunately it arrived the night they left for UK. So my aunty in US sent it to Nigeria, long story short my lippie is still in Nigeria. Anyways sometime during the last summer i was able to purchase a few Kylie lippies for myself and a lucky TPJay.

When they finally came i was thrilled, i finally had them. My box consisted of two Leo, two True brown k (my new go to lippie), two Reign, two Poise k, one Mary Jo k. So here are the colours

 True Brown K (Liquid lipstick)


 This my favourite one, i have always wanted a brown lippie, now that i have one i wear it 24/7.

Reign (Metal)

Leo (Liquid lipstick)

This is a purplish shade, i just had to cop it for the love of purple and it is my perfect fall essential.

Now let us talk about the product, I don't think Kylie's products are overrated. They are worth the hype, the formula is so perfect; the liquid lipstick is not as drying as other liquid lipsticks out there. They are comfortable to wear you would not even feel like you have something on your lips. They are long lasting as well. The lipsticks are very pigmented all you need is one coat and you are good to go. It dries down matte almost immediately, the lippie is there to stay once it get matte. The first time i tried my true brown k, i had it on for 9 hours, i ate poundo and ogbonno with it and it still stayed intact (not exactly intact a little rubbed off). It smells so nice like vanilla cake, you just want to lick it off your lips but the smells goes once it is matte. I have one problem with Kylie cosmetics, not the product though, their service; the only thing i encountered that i did not like was the fact that i had to pay custom charge and i was not told about it before purchasing, i think it should be somewhere on their website just as it is on colorpop's website. Aside from that everything is beautiful.

Give away time!!!

Hello dearies, how have you been? Hope your week has been good? Thank God it is finally Friday because this week has been long and a bit stressful. So during the course of the week i had the opportunity to see DJ Cuppy, for those of you who don't know her she is a Dj.

On instagram, she posted a picture saying "the first five cupcakes (girls) in London to dm her would have the chance to hangout with her. At that time i was not a cupcake but now i can say that  i am. Anyway i dm'ed her just because i wanted to have something interesting to put on my blog and yeah i was chosen. On Wednesday after uni i travelled all the way to London to see her. I was quite late because i was not sure if i wanted to take an uber to the venue or a bus anyways i ended up taking an uber. I got there and i met three other cupcakes, cuppy and two of her colleagues/friends. It was just a girlie hangout, there was food, music and goodies. And of course we took a lot of selfies and pictures. In the midst of chilling she told us how her djing career started and how her passion has made her what she is now. One of the things she said that stuck to my head was 'do what you want to do and be the best at it' that statement encouraged me and made me realise that i can actually be the best in every thing i set out to do. Not like i have not heard that statement but she just re-inspired me. It was really nice to met her and i was glad i did go.

Least i forget today is her birthday, Happy Birthday Cuppy!! Thanks for stopping by TPJays.

Hello November

Is it too late now to say happy new month? Happy new month beautiful people! This year has gone by so fast, i still can't believe we are in the 11th month already and I hope this month brings blessings your way because it is my month. It is my birthday soon and i am not even excited and that's new because i am always excited for my birthday, i don't even have any plan yet. I always go all out on my birthday but i guess this year is going to be different. I think i am not feeling it as much because September and October was challenging, i went through a lot of changes and some other shit or maybe it is because i am growing older.  It has been crazy for me really but i just hope that my month would be beautiful and a happy one, positive vibes only this month.

So this pictures were actually inspired by simi and falz EP Chemistry. The pictures they dropped got everyone talking (nice PR), they actually looked like pre wedding pictures, they looked loved up and all. Just incase you were wondering, me and my co model are just friends. Now that i have cleared the air, he told me he wanted to be featured on my blog way before falz and simi's EP dropped, but time and distance did not let us work together but now that i am back in the city we got the chance to. Although he is not a blogger he still  got the style, he got the swag and yeah that is how this shoot came about.
