Dr Brandt Complexion Perfection Kit – I trie...

Happy hump day bellas, I picked up the Dr Brandt Complexion Perfection Kit from Sephora late last year but between having the vampire facial done and going on vacation, I forgot I hadn’t yet tried the magnetic mask. Last night I decided to test it out so I can give you my first impressions. The other products I’ve used quite a bit so I can give you a full review on those. Dr Brandt Complexion Perfection Kit – $34 Even though this set retails for $34, it has a whopping $67 value. There are 5 items contained in the set and…

The Body Shop Matte Clay Foundation is great for a...

Happy Monday bellas, A few weeks ago I did a mini review of The Body Shop Matte Clay Foundation over on my Instagram. Since returning to work this year, I find myself wanting to do my makeup more often. One of the main reasons is due to the foundation. I’ve been doing my makeup at least four times a week which is a big leap from the once a week I was doing last year. I thought I’d pop on here today and just give some more info since I’ve been receiving so many questions (and compliments) regarding my base. The Body Shop…

My K-Beauty stash and why pimple patches are a MUS...

Hiya bellas, I hope you guys are psyched for today’s post because we’ll be chatting about K-Beauty. For those of you that don’t know, that’s just the umbrella term for products that are manufactured in South Korea. My only stab at K-Beauty before this was the Tony Moly items I reviewed here. I’ve been eyeing out some stuff but with the vast range of items, it took a while to decide. Then late last year I got contacted by Postbox Courier offering me a shipping voucher to test out their services. I usually use Aramex as my freight forwarder when…

More Swiitch Beauty in my arsenal plus a bit of a ...

Hiya bellas, I’ve had these Swiitch Beauty products in my collection for a while now and thought I’d do a roundup because I still get a lot of questions around them. I’ve also seen some negativity around the brand so I’m going to give you my honest opinion (as always) on why I continue to support them. So let’s address the elephant in the room. I’ve seen a lot of people saying that Swiitch Beauty purchases the products from China and just slaps their logo on the products and puts their markup on them. One of their recent Instagram posts showed that…

Hiya bellas, Today I’m going to be sharing with you two lip sets I picked up from Sephora last year. After months of testing, I can give you my opinion on the items because most of them are individually available and Sephora always has different variations of these lip sets on offer if you’re interested in picking one up. Also, I think the new ones for 2018 will be released soon so I can let you know if it’s worth it. Let’s start with the smaller of the two sets. Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip – $28 ($68 value)…

This Smith & Cult gloss is giving me all kind...

Hiya bellas, Thanks to local company Quintessentially Yours, the Smith & Cult and Oribe Hair products are readily available for purchase in SA. I attended the launch a few months back and received one of their lip stains in a goodie bag. I was so intrigued by the packaging and wanted to try another shade so I managed to snag one of the brighter glosses. Background Smith & Cult was created by beauty veteran Dineh Mohajer, the voice of our beauty junkie, who revolutionized the color cosmetics industry when she launched Hard Candy. Several years and creative collaborations later, Mohajer…
