June Favourites

I’m not sure if I mentioned this before, but I haven’t been wearing much makeup for the last couple of weeks since it is the month of Ramadaan. Not that there is anything wrong with it, I’ve just been spending my time doing other things before work instead of beating my face. So this month the amount of items I’ve worn the entire day has been limited to lips, flawless skin and a pop of highlight. I’ve tried a lot of new products the last couple of weeks and these are the ones that I really enjoyed. Palladio Velvet Matte Cream Lip…

How I wash my Makeup Brushes

Surprisingly, this is one of the questions I get asked quite a lot. I’d have given you a different answer depending on when you asked. I decided to finally tackle this blog post because I have been using these products weekly and I don’t see myself changing it anytime soon. For most of you, like myself, cleaning makeup brushes is a laborious and tedious task. As much as I would rather be spending time with my kids or catching up on series, I know it needs to be done.

MAC Vibe Tribe Collection now Available

With all the controversy surrounding the new MAC Vibe Tribe collection, I’m sure there’s a lot of bellas out there that have decided to boycott the brand and the collection. As much as I concur with some and completely agree that MAC was in the wrong on this one, I couldn’t help but get my hands on some of these gorgeous trinkets. I couldn’t resist to get my hands on the Gleamtones Powder and two of the lippies. I haven’t used them yet so today I’ll be sharing what the collection entails and if I love the items I picked up, I’ll…

Trying out some new Morphe brushes

I’m not normal. We all know that but some people don’t understand it. Hell sometimes even I don’t understand it. Let me explain. I am a makeup addict, junkie, fanatic, user and abuser. Whatever term you’d like to use I don’t really care. The crux of it is that it’s my drug. I get high when using and I get rushes and thrills when I see, touch or smell it. The best part is I don’t think anyone has ever been hospitalised using too much of it. Sure the odd occasion of a not so pleasant reaction when you get a…

Swiitch Beauty Tools

A brand that has taken South Africa by storm in just a year, every blogger in the know has mentioned one of the many products they have to offer. Let’s start with a bit of background because boy was I shocked when I found out. Swiitch Beauty was founded in 2015 by 15 year old entrepeneur Rabia Ghoor. She runs an online store with her headquarters in Gauteng, alongside her father since she is still a full time student in school. I’d stumbled across the name when visiting other beauty blogs and even browsed the website a couple of times.…
