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.

I’m just kidding, we’ve been on and off without power since last Friday so I couldn’t take pics and post it in time. Grab a drink and…

New Essence Products Haul

About two weeks back I mentioned that Essence had launched a whole lot of new products that were added to their permanent range here. Shortly afterwards I found them at Dischem and picked up a few I wanted to try. This post has inevitably taken so long for me to post because I had mixed feelings towards some of the items and wanted to test it thoroughly before posting my review.
