Personal Care || Ultra Hold•Tenue Ultra




Hey EveryOne đź’•


I Know I've been gone for a good while but I'm here now with a very amazing product to discuss "The Ultra Hold styling Gel". I've had this for couple weeks because its pretty much not what I expected. The words Ultra Hold in the title fooled me. It says on the bottle Fast Drying, Long lasting and Non-Flaking. Personal Care lied it does none of the above. I've paid $1.50 for it at local store. Let's start with the bad news


The disadvantages of this Product:
1. I have 4b-4c hair texture so I wanted a gel to hold my hair in a bun. The gel has no hold. Its definitely not for 4 texture hair women and men.
2. I use it to try curl my hair but sadly it flakes more than anything else after it dries.
3. It takes forever to dry and definitely doesn't let the curls pop for long.
4. Never use it alone, You should always use oils, creams or conditioners to get rid of the dryness the gel brings off.
5. It dries out hair after used please wash your hair.


The advantages:
Its great for natural hair ladies with 2-3 hair textures and also for relaxed hair to put in a bun. The scent is amazing.


If your wondering which hair texture you have here's a chart.



The ingredients are: Water, Carbomer, PvP K-30, Tri-ethanolamine, glycerine, DMDM hydantoin, polysorbate 20, fragrance, Aloe vers gel, D&C red #33.

Honestly I expected better from personal Care.

Breast Cancer Pink October 2015 by Glamulet




Hey Everyone! As you might know October is the month for celebrating Women who suffers with breast cancer. The Question is what is Breast Cancer?

Breast Cancer

Cancer starts when cells begin to grow out of control. Cells in nearly any part of the body can become cancer, and can spread to other areas of the body. Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that starts in the cells of the breast. A malignant tumor is a group of cancer cells that can grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. The disease occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get it too.

There are two different types of breast cancer, known as Ductal and Lobular. Ductal cancer starts at the ducts or openings which bring the milk to the nipples and lobular cancer starts at the lobules which produce the milk.

Although there are many different causes of breast cancer, the most common ones are exposure to radiation and harmful synthetic chemicals and in some cases it may be caused by surgical silicone implants. There are certain women who are more susceptible to certain forms of breast cancer due to their genotype or genetic makeup. Breast cancer generally spreads much faster in these women. Also women are hundred times more likely to get breast cancer than men and women who have undergone hormone replacement therapy with estrogen are far more likely to get breast cancer than other women.
Family histories of breast cancer, obesity, multiple childbirth, having late menopause or early menstrual cycle are also risk factors for breast cancer.



Now knowing that Cancer is one of the most deadly disease to humans. The company Glamulet has came up with an amazing product "The Pink Charms". Glamulet is a jewelry brand that specializes in Charms. The Company was launched in 2014 to offer every women a new range of trendy and elegant quality jewelry at an affordable price.

The Pink Limited Edition Charms were created to support the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign. For every set of charms added to the cart, 50% is donated to a charity organization. Purchase a Pink Charm here. It will save alive! you should definitely share with friends and let them know they must participate in this campaign.





Watch a Full Story of Strong Woman who's trying so hard to fight the disease. It's the most touching story I've ever watched.  




With Glamulet You should Join the Challenge and Make a CHANGE. By 2050, no woman should die of breast cancer. They are launching the October Campaign to make it a reality. They can’t do this alone and they need your help to spread the message. Join hundreds of thousands of people across the country – in school, at work, and at home – to stand together against breast cancer.

Review on my Satchel HandBag










Hey Everyone

School has officially started and female college students don't like the idea of wearing a knapsack bag to college. I for one is one of those students. This bag here is actually my school bag. The Satchel bags and purses are the cutest handbags ever. I bought this bag a week ago for $3000 Jamaican dollars and i'm in love. the bag is literally 17inches in width it can carry all the big Science, Sociology and Law books. The straps are sturdy they can carry the weight and as for the crossbody strap it's a bit thin in width but strength of that can only carry our notebooks. 

On the inside it has a big space almost 3 compartments inside as any other handbag/Crossbody bags and for the back it as another compartment to put whatever you want in it.  I  for carry 5 notebooks, Pencil Case and Make bag inside with my purse also. I love brown leather handbags they just seem more personal than a black bag that anyone can purchase. The Satchel Bags are famous fashion designer bags i did research and found one that almost looks like mine on macy's Giani Bernini Block Signature Dome Satchel that right there is hotty too! These bags are just not women bags they're also for fashionable guys ♥


Never heard of a satchel bags? below has brief history Enjoyin!







 About Satchel Bags

Sometimes it seems the term satchel is now being used to describe a multitude of shapes. However, generally, satchels are handbags that have a top closure, top carry handle, and a flat bottom. Often they have a triangular side profile and have double handles - one set to carry by hand and a strap to wear over the shoulder. It's this flat bottom and triangular side profile that can help you distinguish a satchel from other bags like hobo bags.


Satchels, like most purses, are available in a variety of colors, sizes, and materials from designer labels and affordable brands alike. Many come with organizational pockets and compartments to help you find items quickly and easily. This is one reason why satchel handbags continue to be some of the most popular everyday bags. Another reason is that satchels tend to be the perfect size to hold all your essentials without being bulky. They tend to be neither oversized nor mini, but simply just right.

Nique's Makeup Look Portfolio






Hey Everyone! So i've decided to do a portfolio of all the hideous and best looks i've done throughout my years. All of these Pic are taken by Sony Xperia J (worst phone of all time). This is my utmost Favourite of all times i really dont know why but this look was done on 4th of July 2015 right after i big chop my hair. On the eyelids is actually read blue and black you can barely see the black because it's blended with the blue. On the lips is True Red by Jordana Cosmetics. The Brows was actually done with Airemain Eye liner in brown with concealer to give a very neat look.




Now this was my first look, official disaster! lol the brows neat tho but why was my face so white? I was really feeling myself in this video. This look was done on feb 14 if my memory serves me well. I didn't want an official pink and red loving look, i was just trying something different and disaster hit! Not ashamed of how i started out im actually glad i started out like this so i could do way better now
Follow me on vine ♥




Now this look is another favourite of mine. I call it the "Smokey Green Eyes" Just because of the quality of the phone you barely can see the true look of the makeup. I really enjoyed doing this look. On the eyelid is actually dark green and black blended together with that neat a$$ wing. Those Brows were also fleeky ♥ On the lips is 17 brown from Jordana Cosmetics.





My first time trying the Cut Crease makeup look and FAIL i don't understand how it looked like that but i can't say i didn't try. The colours on the eyelid are Pink and purple as the transition shade.






I did this look the same day Nikkietutorials did her Power of Makeup Look. I was inspired so i did half of my face and trust me he that wing was the first time i tried that cute wing didn't come out like the best but it did came out as great for my first wing and my brow was fleeky! 




This is my most recent look that i did on August 6 Jamaican independence day! for this look im in love ♥ on the lid is yellow and green with black the transition colour with a small wing. On my lips L.A Girls Lip Liner in Natural creme.

1 YEAR BLOGVERSARY

Hey Everyone!


Today Last year was the first time i joined the blogging world and so far it has been a struggle. when i started i was first on a website called bubblews which scammed me. I joined that site thinking finally i can get paid for my writing but i guess not -.-. My first blog post on blogger was 5 Ways to Clear the Mind. At that point i was really discouraged a little but has i continue to scroll through youtube and google trying to understand how to be a blogger. I stumbled upon my favourite youtuber channel Samantha Marie (Beauty Crush) i was blown away of how her blog. it was so clean and understandably beautiful. I copied everything she did lol because i was so inspired. I tried to get the same template she had but little did i know she paid for her blog to look that perfect.





After few weeks i setted up my blog and gave it a really stupid url (neenaannique.blogspot.com) now look at that i got no views, no shares, no comment. It was just pathetic i lost so much interest after a couple months because no one will view my blog and i was entirely shy never wanted to share it to my social medias because i don't think my followers and friends would even read anything i write. Besides it was back to school no one really had time to read up about confidence in self and self esteem blog post.





After seeing all the disappointment i switched lanes to Hair and Beauty. Mainly at that time i was just starting my transitioning hair journey. I started posting everything i read about hair with my thoughts in everything. Still no views! so i gave up like a regular teenager when things don't go our way lol. I focused on school and post on the blog when i totally forgot about it. When i learned about google adsense i got excited thinking finally im going to get paid, turned out i get paid by persons clicking on ads O.o how dumb? Nobody actually click ads I then youtube everything about "how to get paid to be a blogger" turns out they said i should do sponsored post join couple sites that pays you to post and do sponsored posts on all my social media.


I joined tons and tons of site with my very small blog which the only time i get views is because i view it from another P.C or my phone that's how sad it was but now i quit the sites and just concentrate on my blog and so far i've got views, comments and made friends and trust me i put in a lot of work this summer to achieve the blog i got now which isn't a 100% but its something and guess the funny part i haven't spent a cent on my blog. Dana Fox led me to love my blog and i thank her for that because she gave me so much tips from her icanbuildablog.




This summer i've learned to love what i got and what i have done to get what i have now. I dont know about you but my blog came a very long way. The truth about my blog right now is that Nique is the only one running the blog and its alot of work, but i'm still grateful for how much work i put in to get it to look this decent for all of you. I Got viewers from almost 100+ Countries around the world never expect people from israel and bora bora to know that my blog exist ☺ anywhoo  What you think about my new header? 


I just want to say having a blog is a lot of work but it comes with alot of perks, has to where brands will want you to promote their stuff and you'll get paid for it. Secondly if blogging is a hobbie do not take sponsored posts it's just not the best option. thirdly if you your a small blogger DON'T DO AFFILIATE brands will never look at your blog i've been there more like still going through it and i'm getting 3k-4k views a month moreover some brands want 10k tops! So not to get your feelings crush by rejection just work on your blog Get those views and comments Up!! Content is key! Goodluck! ♥



I so want a youtube :( if i get one will you subscribe?

Smooth 'N Shine Polishing Edge Smoothing Pomade || Review




Hey Everyone!


Today I decided to write about Smooth 'N Shine Polishing Edge Smoothing Pomade. I stumbled upon it when i was clearing out my empties. According to the brand Olive & Tea Tree RevivOil instant Edge Smoothing Pomade controls and keeps fine hairs at the edge (nape & temple) in place. Formulated with a perfectly balanced blend of Olive & Tea Tree Oils for moisture, shine and stimulating feel, plus cosmetic surfactants that offer a sleeker, non-waxy feel. Provides lasting edge fixation and control.

My Experience
I bought this product last summer, at first when i got it i was like (Yass i got something to lay these edge down) I was so happy. I had it, pulled it smell the sweet scent. It had a very minty scent like winter fresh i wore it for the first time at school. It layed my edges absolutely down perfectly it was very shiny but i didn't mind because it was my first pomade (lol stupid right?).  After i reached school just for an hour it was worn out. after all that hype it turned out to be a total failure :/ i was so mad. I was told to add water before applying pomade, i did so but it just couldn't hold my hair. I got 4b-4c frizzy hair type.



In My Opinion
These Brands should stop do false advertising they know deep in their heart this product was never for natural hair girls its more like for relaxed/permed girls. The product literally worn out leaving my hair really oily but had a great scent. The only Pro about this product is that the scent and shine.



Do you have any favourite Gel or Pomade you use i'd love to try them out?
