Wishlist Wednesday – Tarte Holiday Sets 2016

With throngs of holidays sets being released by brands each week, I can’t help but lust over some of them. After experiencing sub-par, mediocre workmanship in this holiday collection last year, I’ve been skeptical to purchase any holiday sets thus far. I’ve been brainwashed into thinking the items are made in bulk on the other side of the world to save costs because they know people NEED to buy gifts for their loved ones. I know all items are made in bulk in factories all over the world, but hey, I’m trying to change my perception. I’ve seen so many gorgeous new…

NYX Week – NYX Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette Review & Swatches

Oh wee *rubbing hands excitedly*, do I have a pretty poppy to show you today. As I mentioned in my NYX liquid lipstick comparison post here yesterday, I picked up the NYX Lingerie in Exotic from fellow beauty blogger Azraa from Prettifulblog. Along with it I picked up this beauty. The NYX Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette. You know I usually like to have my highlight so popping it’s visible from space but not anymore. I don’t know what changed or when but recently I’ve been toning things down a bit. Instead of the ‘BAM in your face’/’cheekbones for days’ look,…

Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette – First Impressions on this Limited Edition

Happy FriYAY bellas, Today I’m going to share with you my thoughts on the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette I received earlier this week. I had ordered it from LaBoutique last Monday and was only expecting it around the 18th October. When Ayesha from LaBoutique said I could come around to collect one night, I was shaking with excitement. I can’t explain it but my hands were literally itching to get the palette. With the latest palette releases like the ABH Mario palette and Lorac Pro Mega 3 also on my wishlist, they sat aside while the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette took…

Wet n Wild Haul ft MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick dupe?

Hiya bellas, It’s almost the end of the week and I’m dreading it. I’m already broke for the month so weekends mean sitting at home watching series. Wait, that’s kinda my thing lol. Can the weekend come around already? I hauled a few makeup items from Clicks not too long ago with quite a few of them from Wet n Wild. I’ve not really been a fan of the brand apart from my complete obsession with the Comfort Zone palette I reviewed here. I’ve had it for almost 2 years and I’m still loving it just as much. I did purchase their…

Lorac Pro Palette 3 First Impressions

If you read my wishlist post here, you’ll know I’ve wanted the Lorac Pro Palette 3 before it was even released. I’ve had the original Lorac Pro 1 for more than a year and it’s still one of my favourite eyeshadow formulas to date. So I was super excited to get my hands on this one. I immediately contacted Muse.SA, since I got my original Lorac Pro 1 from her, to keep me one from the stock she had coming in. When it arrived I honestly expected it to be a couple more hundred rands than it was so I was…
