Essence Range Update – My Must Haves palette review and swatches

Hope you’re having a lovely weekend bellas, I was sitting here thinking to myself what new items I have on my wishlist and remembered that I haven’t shared the new essence launches with you.

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette First Impressions

So last week I decided to finally dip into the Tarte Swamp Queen palette by Grav3yardgirl. I’ve had it for over a month but since I bought my friend one as well for her birthday, I had to stash it away. It was such a mission to get this palette from Tarte but I’ve learnt my lesson.

Since Tarte offer free international shipping for orders over R1 024,…

Wet n Wild Haul ft MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick dupe?

Hiya bellas, It’s almost the end of the week and I’m dreading it. I’m already broke for the month so weekends mean sitting at home watching series. Wait, that’s kinda my thing lol. Can the weekend come around already? I hauled a few makeup items from Clicks not too long ago with quite a few of them from Wet n Wild. I’ve not really been a fan of the brand apart from my complete obsession with the Comfort Zone palette I reviewed here. I’ve had it for almost 2 years and I’m still loving it just as much. I did purchase their…

The new Too Faced x Nikkie Tutorials palette is to die for. The pink leopard print is EVERYTHING! I just pictured myself saying that last sentence in Nikkie’s voice. She’s on of my current favourite YouTubers and I even have notifications enabled for when she posts a new video. Stalker much? So when I saw the new palette release on her channel, I jumped for joy. I love how they have created an…
