Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette First I...

So last week I decided to finally dip into the Tarte Swamp Queen palette by Grav3yardgirl. I’ve had it for over a month but since I bought my friend one as well for her birthday, I had to stash it away. It was such a mission to get this palette from Tarte but I’ve learnt my lesson. I initially ordered it during their Black Friday sale where they had 30% off. I ordered it along with a second palette for my friend and a limited edition lipstick and lipliner set. Since Tarte offer free international shipping for orders over R1 024,…

Wet n Wild Haul ft MegaGlo Highlighters, Blush, Li...

Hiya bellas, If you read my last post on Wet n Wild, you’ll know I enjoy trying new items from the brand. So I did a bit of hauling recently and I received my order from Wet n Wild on Wednesday so I thought I’d give you a quick run down of what I picked up. I was planning to wait until I had fully reviewed all the products but I was so excited I started playing with everything the minute I got home. I used every single product so let’s make this a first impressions post instead. If you were…

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…

Happy FriYAY bellas, Today we’re rounding off the week with an array of NYX face products. I’m not going to do a long intro since you’ve already read my thoughts on the brand in the previous posts this week so let’s get on to it. NYX Illuminators – R155 ($9*) To say I searched high and low for these would be an understatement. I waited for 8 months before I finally found them restocked at Clicks and grabbed one of each just in case. The illuminators come in 5 different shades of which only 3 made it to our shores.…

Wishlist Wednesday – Essence Winter Wonderfu...

Ok so I know the title is a little bit deceiving. How can this be a wishlist if I’m reviewing the item? Well I had the Essence Winter Wonderful post planned last week and it was all ready to be posted today. I had visited many Clicks to find this trend edition but to no avail. Then I went shopping this past weekend and I managed to get a hold of the Essence Winter Wonderful blush. There are quite a number of items in this collection and this gorgeous highlighter is one of them. I was sad to find out that the…
