WIN! Benefit BADgal BANG! Mascara, Porefessional Pearl Primer and Cheek Parade Palette Review

Happy VALENTINE’S day bellas! Sorry for the lack of posts recently. It’s been a crazy two weeks for me thus far. My niece and nephew, who are the cutest twins, just turned 1. We celebrated by having a huge party this weekend (70+ people) at my dad’s house and it took a lot out of me. From shopping for decor and theme decorations to planning meals and snacks, the grunt work of actually pulling it off took its toll on me. I’m usually all for being creative and setting up but with the uncertainty of rain, we did a lot…

Catrice Pulse of Purism Collection

It’s been just over a week since the new Catrice Pulse of Purism Collection hit the shelves at Dischem. Now you know I’m a sucker for pretty packaging because this and this Catrice purchases were all about that. My favourite thus far has got to be this one, it’s the most stunning of all time. So when I received the press release about the launch, I mentally added most of the collection to my wishlist. Subtle Elegance. Pure sophistication as a statement.

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…

NYX Lippies, Blush & Pencils + Goodie Bag Giveaway

Happy Monday bellas, I thought I’d share with you some more of the NYX Cosmetics goodies I have in my collection. Some were amazing and some were complete duds. Keep on reading to find out. NYX Ombre Blush – R220 ($10) The shade Mauve Me is a muted plum shade which changes dependent of which side you swipe more on. It has a satin finish and builds up colour quite nicely. The shade doesn’t suit my skin tone very well but the concept is awesome. The price is a bit steep though and I still prefer the more affordable NYX blush in…
