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. If you want to hear my thoughts on this palette then get comfy cos it’s going to be…

ColourPop Just Peachy, Heavy Hitter and Blow Me Away First Impressions + Giveaway

he Happy Monday bellas, Truth be told, I am constantly swamped with new products and ideas for blog posts. It seems I can just never get around to posting what I have planned for the week.

So even though I received the following products just over two weeks ago, I’ve put them to the test and I’m sharing my thoughts on them with you today.

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette First Impressions

So last week I decided to finally dip into the Tarte Swamp Queen palette by Grav3yardgirl. I’ve had it for over a month but since I bought my friend one as well for her birthday, I had to stash it away. It was such a mission to get this palette from Tarte but I’ve learnt my lesson. I initially ordered it during their Black Friday sale where they had 30% off. I ordered it along with a second palette for my friend and a limited edition lipstick and lipliner set. Since Tarte offer free international shipping for orders over R1 024,…
