Gerard Cosmetics Naughty & Nice Review & Swatches

Hiya bellas, I ordered the Gerard Cosmetics Naughty & Nice set while they were having their holiday bundles. I only received a few items but golly, I’ve loved the items I had from the brand before but these new ones are on a whole ‘nother level. I’ve been eyeing these for a while so I just couldn’t resist. The set I bought contained a mini Slay All Day Setting Spray, a Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipstick and a Metal-Matte Liquid Lipstick.

Urban Decay Blackmail Vice Lipstick Palette & Vintage Capsule in Smog

Hiya bellas, I’m so tempted to say Happy Friday because it’s already the end of the week. Don’t you just love public holidays that fall close to the weekend. Firstly let me apologize for going AWOL on you the last week or two. I don’t know what is wrong me/my brains because it’s just not functioning properly.

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Trio Review & Swatches

A few weeks ago I was invited to attend the Urban Decay Summer Bash where they announced the opening of their new store in Eastgate. The venue was chic, the pool was decorated with fun summer inflatables and we got served a light yet scrumptious and refreshing lunch. The most thrilling part for me was finally getting to meet some of my favourite South African bloggers and makeup artists. I legit felt like I was rubbing shoulders with celebrities. I’m such a geek I know. After having such an awesome day, we got to play with some of the new…

Lip Monthly October Subscription Bag Impressions/Review

Happy  Monday bellas, Let me start off by profusely apologizing for this post in advance. I was excited to show you this new subscription service I had stumbled across but recent events have me limited. The Lip Monthly October bag was the first time I had ordered from them. I got it at a steal of only $5 including free international shipping. It is a recurring monthly subscription service that contains 4-5 full sized products in a cute little collectable bag. I first heard about the Lip Monthly bag chatting to a fellow makeup junkie at the Pro Beauty Expo.…
