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.

I feel I’m ready now because I’ve been reaching for some of these products on the daily so let’s get on to it. For lips I picked up the…

Benefit Cosmetics Haul + First Impressions

If you’ve read my previous Wishlist Wednesday post, you would know that I was super excited for Benefit Cosmetics to be finally brought back to South Africa. On top of that, I found a select few of my favourite beauty bloggers were allowed to host a VIP experience with 5 guests at the Sandton City launch on social media. I entered two of the competitions, one being the Friday night before the official launch on the 11th July and the other being the Sunday after. When I got the message that I was chosen for the Friday night launch, I…

The NEW Essence “Nauti Girl” Nautical ...

Hi bellas, I was so happy to see a new Essence Trend Edition collection launched in Dischem at Clearwater on Sunday. It has been quite a while since the last trend edition, Hello Autumn! was launched more than 3 months ago. The collection has a sailor theme that sports the classic shades of blue, grey and red amongst it to celebrate a sailing tour of Summer. After checking out all the items on the stand, I decided only to purchase a lipstick from the Essence Nauti Girl collection which is an orange slightly bordering on peach shade called ‘Miss Navy’.…
