Swatches: Nicka K Absolute Perfect 18 Eyeshadow palettes

Hey beauties,

I was happening to check my reader list and saw a fellow beauty blogger post pictures on a haul with these products. I immediately thought to myself "I wonder of my beauty supplies store got these in stock". The items I saw was the Nicka K Absolute Perfect Eighteen Eyeshadow Palettes. I know your wondering, I have never heard of this brand. Well Nicka K is an upcoming brand which has been featured in magazines such as Sophisticates Black Hair Styles and Black Hair.
This beauty supplies store brand is emerging and best believe their products are pretty decent to others like: Ruby Kisses, Black Opal and Kleancolor.

These palettes retail for $2.99 each

Can be found at www.Nicka.com or local Beauty supplies store

Look out for FOTD's with these palettes, their pigmentation amazed me. Love their pigmentation and the  texture of the array of different colors.

REVIEW: Hana air Professional hair dryer

*Very picture heavy

Hello beauties,

I was contacted by Misikko.com to review their Hana air Professional hair dryer. Rarely do I do hair tools reviews but please be reminded that all opinions is 100% true and genuine.

Misikko.com is a company which sells professional hair equipments. This is the  Hana air professional dryer which I received.

HANA Salon presents the powerful HANAair hair dryer. This dryer has been Salon tested and Salon recommended since its inception. Inspired by Italian design, the combination of HANAair's strongest AC motor along with its tourmaline lined ceramic heater will dry your hair up to 60% faster maintaining natural shine while promoting healthy luxurious hair. -via the website

  • on Technology- condition hair & reduces static electricity
  • Tourmaline & Titanium Oxide Technology- natural ions promote healthier hair
  • Silver Nanotechnology- for antibacterial Protection
  • Scratch Resistant Shell with black metallico finish adds durability and is easy to clean
  • Long life motor with low noise
  • Gyroscopically balanced for easy handling
  • Fiberglass concentrator

-via the website: Misikkio.com 

➢ Reliable and durable equipment.
➢ Lightweight dryer with technological design.
➢ Environmentally safe.
➢ Doesn't create/ cause static or hair to be frizzy.
➢ Takes below 10 minutes for hair to be completely dry (hair length: short to shoulder length).
➢ Amazing air flow which ranges from cold air to warm air to hot and very hot air.
➢ The air motor sound is not as loud and boisterous as compared to other handheld hair dryers.
➢ It's Italian design and sleek display adds to it's professional look.
➢ The exterior is a scratch resistant design.
➢ It comes with a 2 year warranty
➢ It helps in maintaining the your natural hair shine and does not get hair tangled and make it difficult to comb thru

I used it on my daughter's curly hair and she really loved the feel of it rather than the old one which when turned on scares her. 


I really like the Hana air dryer beauty tool, it's sleek black color and design makes it look very professional like it's a salon hair dryer. It has a rounded hook at the lower end of the dryer in which one can hang it for storage as the professionals do in the salon. 

➢ The price... being that it is a professional amazing quality dryer, I would recommend it to professional stylist and such.

Available at Misikko.com

Price: $314.99 US

Sale price: $194.99 US
