The most beautiful Mermaid Brush Set – Beauty by Benazir

A few weeks ago I received the most gorgeous brushes ever. Benazir Akbar, former MAC makeup artist and entrepreneur based in Joburg, sent me her Mermaid Brush Set to try out and review. When she contacted me, I assumed it would be the generic unicorn and diamond brush sets that you see in every social media post. When I opened the package though, I was wowed beyond words. I’d seen the Spectrum Glam Clam priced at $75 and I was like WOAH that’s crazy. Then I saw it being sold on Facebook for R1950 by third party sellers and assumed that was…

Garnier New Launches – First Impressions

Hiya bellas, A few weeks ago I attended the Garnier launch and we got introduced to a few of their new products. Some of them were great and and some of them not so much. I initially wanted to do a review on the Ultimate Blends range and the BB creams but I thought why not show you all of it. Ultimate Blends The Delicate Soother Range For the last year I’ve been using Tresemme Breakage Defense shampoo and conditioner. It hasn’t helped much in preventing my hair from breaking or falling out so much. Why I’ve stuck with it…

Coming at you with another wild giveaway to get your glow on!

Happy Monday bellas, Social media is blowing up over the excitement around the launch of the Wet n Wild MegaGlo highlighters. Finally, after months and months of waiting, it landed in Clicks a few weeks ago. Stores got a limited amount of stock so it’s been sold out everywhere. I purchased both shades of the highlighting powders last year (you can read the full review and see swatches here) and I am still so obsessed with them. When I saw these in store, I picked up the last one for Azraa from Prettifulblog at the same time she found one in…

MAC Cosmetics Min Liu Collection

Something that has astounded me lately is the MAC releases. We seem to launch them here in South Africa before they launch everywhere else. Isn’t that strange? For instance, the MAC Cosmetics Min Liu Collection is set to launch in the US on April 14th yet it became available on maccosmetics.co.za earlier this week. I’m not complaining because I do also find it awesome. It happened with the MAC Mariah Carey collection I reviewed here as well. Oh and I have a giveaway running where you could win an item from that collection so don’t forget to check it out. Min…
