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.

Makeup Madness with Maybelline – Blushed Nudes, Brow Precise, Push Up Angel and more…

It’s been weeks since I received this generous press drop from Maybelline and I’ve thoroughly put it to the test. There have been hits and misses and products just down right amazing. Keep on reading if you’d like to find out which ones are worth the spend. Maybelline Master Strobing Stick – R160 This is an affordable formula dupe for the renowned Benefit Watts Up highlighter.

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…
