Foundation Files – NYX, Revlon, Inglot, Stil...

Hiya bellas, I realised there are a few foundations in my arsenal that I’ve had for a while and have never spoken about here on the blog. I got a few questions about whether or not I’d recommend some of the products so I thought why not do a post on it so everyone can benefit.  NYX Total Control Drop Foundation Coverage Sheer to Medium Price R230 Quantity 13ml Finish Semi-matte Longevity 7-8 hours SPF No Oil-free No Oxidises No Shade Range 25 Best For Normal to combo skin Worst For Very dry or oily skin Cruelty-free Yes but parent…

GIVEAWAY: Makeup Revolution Foundation, Blush ...

Today I have an exciting post for you guys. Exciting because this is the first collaboration post in I’ve done in years. 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. It’s a big deal to find a dupe for such a product because in that post I mentioned how the Shape Tape is the best concealer in the world in my opinion. I also managed to get the foundation and blush palette so…

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…

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…

My K-Beauty stash and why pimple patches are a MUS...

Hiya bellas, I hope you guys are psyched for today’s post because we’ll be chatting about K-Beauty. For those of you that don’t know, that’s just the umbrella term for products that are manufactured in South Korea. My only stab at K-Beauty before this was the Tony Moly items I reviewed here. I’ve been eyeing out some stuff but with the vast range of items, it took a while to decide. Then late last year I got contacted by Postbox Courier offering me a shipping voucher to test out their services. I usually use Aramex as my freight forwarder when…

The Ordinary Skincare – Not worth the hype? Skin...

Hiya bellas, The third instalment of my skincare series has taken forever to be written thanks to the great procrastinator that I am. I finally decided to sit down and tackle it since I’ve been getting a lot of questions of what products I would recommend to clear acne and dark marks. If you want to read how I got rid of my acne in 2 weeks, then check out this post here and for some of the products I’ve tried from the Phytocare range then check it out here. Today I’ll be sharing with you my collection of The Ordinary skincare…
