ColourPop Just Peachy, Heavy Hitter and Blow Me Away First Impressions + Giveaway

he Happy Monday bellas, Truth be told, I am constantly swamped with new products and ideas for blog posts. It seems I can just never get around to posting what I have planned for the week. Life happens and I get delayed, sidetracked or even worse, sick in bed with the flu. So even though I received the following products just over two weeks ago, I’ve put them to the test and I’m sharing my thoughts on them with you today. Luckily, after testing thousands of products over the years, I’ve come to decide very quickly on what is good versus…

Kylie Cosmetics Salted Caramel Kylighter Review & Swatches

When Kylie Cosmetics launched their new line of Kylighters, I knew I wanted to get my hands on one of them. As expected, it sold out within minutes. I missed the restock two weeks later and was absolutely devasted.

Today I wanted to share with you a brand I stumbled upon a few weeks ago called Tuesday in Love. They are the official distributors of the Tuesday in Love and Maya halal nail polish ranges.

Brand Focus: LA Girl Pro Coverage Foundation, Strobelite, Primer, Powder & Setting Spray

Okay so I know this post is loooong overdue. I shared a pic on Instagram of the LA Girl Pro Coverage Foundation and Strobe Lite Strobing Powder in Feb and frequently get asked what my thoughts are on it. I decided to gather a few other LA Girl items I’ve not yet featured on my blog just in case you were interested. There are reviews on the Eyeshadow Bricks which so closely resembles the Urban Decay Naked palettes. The Matte Lipsticks which I still enjoy to bits and the Concealers and Correctors which are essential for any makeup artists kit. LA Girl…
