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?

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…

Kat von D Star Studded Look + huge Glamorise Discount Code just for you

Hiya bellas, Kat von D is no stranger to me. I’ve watched every single episode of Miami Ink and LA Ink since it aired.

I’ve always known she has a makeup line but lack of access has hindered my ability to try it out. On my wishlist is the lock-it foundation and liquid lipsticks but I’m unsure of which shades to get. So when I happened across the Kat von D…
