Benefit Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation Review

Hiya bellas, I’m sure by now you know that Benefit is one of my favourite brands of all time. You can see my previous purchases from them over here. I was lucky enough to be sent their Hello Happy foundation which is a new addition to their range. I’ve been testing it out extensively and I’d like to share my thoughts with you on it. Packaging The bottle of the Benefit Hello Happy foundation is definitely different from what we’re used to seeing. Housed in a square plastic container, it looks smaller than regular foundations. Fear not, it still contains the…

Spilling the tea on Chick Cosmetics

Hiya bellas, Over the next few weeks, I’ll be catching up on a lot of overdue posts. I’m finally getting my ish in order and hopefully can get a flow going with these blog posts. Today’s post is all about Chick Cosmetics and when I say overdue, I mean I received the PR drop two months ago already. Yes I know, that bad. Anyhoo, here’s the scoop on it.

I’ve teamed up with Aisha from Stardust & Lipstick to review the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define concealer which everyone has been raving about is a dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape I reviewed here.

Hean Cosmetics – Possible Huda Beauty dupe??...

For the life of me, I have no idea why this post hasn’t been published yet. This was supposed to go up sometime last year and going through my WordPress posts, I found this hiding in the drafts folder. Last year I entered a Glamore Cosmetics giveaway and was lucky enough to win one of the Hean Matte Liquid Lipsticks. They are the official distributors of Hean Cosmetics in South Africa. Hean Cosmetics are made in Poland but are distributed mainly throughout the UK and Middle East. I chose to pick up my prize at an event and got to…

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…
