Makeup Geek x Kathleen Lights Highlighter Palette + Giveaway

Happy Monday bellas, It’s been a while since I posted a giveaway so today I have the Makeup Geek x Kathleen Lights Highlighter Palette up for grabs. I’d been lusting after this ever since it got launched and thanks to a naughty friend (yes Ilona I’m talking to you) we placed an order for it. I’ve used it quite a few times over the last couple of months and here’s what I think of it.

Solal C-Serum is a hidden gem that tackles dryness, uneven texture and assists with ageing

I bought my first bottle of Solal C-Serum almost 2 years ago. I was suffering with really dry, dehydrated skin and one of the ladies in Dischem recommended it.

It helped my skin from feeling tight and flaking when I wore foundation. After months of use, I purchased my second bottle. Not long after that, I broke…

The Body Shop Drops of Light Range + my thoughts on a few other goodies

The Body Shop Drops of Light Range is the most recent addition to The Body Shop collection. Consisting of 7 different products, these products are enriched with red algae and Vitamin C to help skin appear more brighter and luminous.

The BEST concealer in the world + causes of dark circles and how to hide them

Dark circles are the bane of my existence. That, along with pesky mosquitoes and washing my makeup brushes. The never-ending struggle of trying to hide them, wishing they could disappear forever. I don’t have the darkest undereye circles by any means but over the last few months they have darkened considerably. I’ve been on a quest to find the best concealer but also try to find the root of the problem. I’ve been told a number of possible reasons could be causing them. First and foremost, lack of sleep. I get around 3-4 hours of shut eye each night and…
