ABH Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Hiya bellas, This week brings a review that is not only long overdue but also much sought after. Dubbed as one of the best palettes of 2016 along with the Master Palette by Mario (review of that one coming soon), the ABH Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette sold out within hours. Unlike previous eyeshadow palettes released by ABH, this is the first one to be made permanent. I like that because I still find myself longing for the Tamanna palette every now and again.

Mii Cosmetics has landed in SA

The first time I saw Mii Cosmetics was at the Beauty Expo in August last year. They had a small stand with a few of their products on display and the gorgeous patterns caught my eye.

Then in December I was invited to the Mii Cosmetics launch at the…
