OFRA Vintage Vineyard Trio Swatches

Hiya bellas, I’m sure by now you’ve seen my love for the OFRA brand. The lippies in the OFRA Vintage Vineyard Trio now bring my OFRA liquid lipstick count to a whopping 12 tubes. I did share that I wanted to add these shades to my collection in my wishlist post here. When OFRA was having a 40% off sale for Black Friday, I just had to take advantage.

Gerard Cosmetics Naughty & Nice Review & Swatches

Hiya bellas, I ordered the Gerard Cosmetics Naughty & Nice set while they were having their holiday bundles.

The set I bought contained a mini Slay All Day Setting Spray, a Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipstick and a Metal-Matte Liquid Lipstick.

I’ve cancelled Lip Monthly – November Subscription Box review & swatches

There’s no such thing as happy Mondays so hiya bellas. Hope you had an awesome weekend (as short as it was). Don’t you wish we had 3 day weekends instead of 2. I might be able to keep my sanity then.

When signing up I got my first bag for just $5 which I thought was well worth the price to try 4-5 full sized products, some of which are not available in SA.

HD Makeup from Clicks – Slay or Nay?

Hiya bellas, I’ve seen the HD Makeup brand available at very few selected Clicks stores over the last couple of months.

I hardly ever reach for the ‘cheap’ makeup because there’s almost no colour payoff and the packaging always looks like crap. After seeing the HD cosmetics feature on Prettifulblog here, I made a mental note to keep my eye out for them. When I eventually found them again, the gold and white packaging beckoned for me to add more. I couldn’t…
