Hiya bellas,

Hope you are well. Today I’m going to be doing a different kind of post and if it works out then I’d like to make it a bi-weekly feature on the blog. I was chatting to a friend last night about makeup and I thought of an idea when she asked me to name my 5 favourite eyeshadow palettes IN ORDER. To be honest I kinda got stuck with my answer at number four since there are too many to choose from and they all serve different purposes. Anyways, if you read my Tarte giveaway post here, the Rainforest of the Sea eyeshadow palette is one of them. One of the options to gain entries in the giveaway is a to leave a blog post comment telling me what your 3 holy grail makeup products and brands are. You have no idea how exciting it was for me to read each and every single comment as they streamed in. Not only has it been an increase in interaction and insight to get to know my readers better but also allowing me to discover products and brands I might have dismissed or never even heard of. I just want to say thank you to each and every one of you for taking your time to participate and be a part of our awesome little family over here at Belle Blushh. We’ve hit a new record with over 4 000 entries in the giveaway and we can only go up from here. Don’t forget to enter because there’s less than 12 hours left. So on that note, thank you again and the question I pose to you today is…

What is your favourite MAC lipstick of all time and what finish is it in?

My favourite MAC lipstick has got to be Velvet Teddy. It’s the perfect nude for my tan skin tone with a browny pink hue. It has a completely matte finish so it’s long lasting but not drying on the lips.

*Thank you to Saffiya for your love, faith and unwavering support and for giving me inspiration for this feature on my blog.
