Christmas is coming early this year!!! Hold on to something cos I’ve got thee most exciting news.
You know how we all lust over brands that aren’t readily available in South Africa. How the urges get worse when those same brands bring out limited edition, holiday palettes and gifts sets at the fraction of the price for almost double, sometimes even triple the amount of product. You rush on to their website to secure your order before it’s sells out and then it hits you like a ton of bricks. They don’t ship to SA. Or wait, better yet, they do ship to SA but shipping fees are the same as the price of the product. Mmmmm might still be worth it but crap, how much tax are they gonna slap me for when it goes through customs? If you’ve ever bought from overseas you’ll know how wonky the calculations are and you could end up paying almost 50% of your order before they release it or get lucky like I did when I did this haul from Germany. Either way, I’m tired of taking that chance.
So before I end up scaring you even further, I’m glad to announce that these products are now available in South Africa thanks to Muse.SA who has gone beyond to bring us the very best in beauty. Over the next couple of days I’ll be sharing sneak peeks in to some of the amazing stuff she’s brought to our shores from the likes of Urban Decay, Marc Jacobs and Too Faced.
Obviously the first item I’m showing you today is one I added to my birthday wishlist here. The gorgeous Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette contains 6 pans of the softest, finely milled powder. A highlighter shade, two face powders, two blushes and a bronzer. I’ve checked out swatches online and as much as I’d love to add this to my collection, I feel it is suited to fairer skin tones. Nothing wrong with looking, right?
With that being said, Musa.SA has a limited number of these available so contact her on Instagram or Whatsapp +27735214369 to secure yours now. It’s first come, first serve or you’ll be added to the preorder waiting list.
Can you guess what brand is next on my list?
What do you think of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette? Isn’t it stunning?
LOTS OF LOVE
