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…

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…

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…

Brand Focus: LA Girl Pro Coverage Foundation, Stro...

Okay so I know this post is loooong overdue. I shared a pic on Instagram of the LA Girl Pro Coverage Foundation and Strobe Lite Strobing Powder in Feb and frequently get asked what my thoughts are on it. I decided to gather a few other LA Girl items I’ve not yet featured on my blog just in case you were interested. There are reviews on the Eyeshadow Bricks which so closely resembles the Urban Decay Naked palettes. The Matte Lipsticks which I still enjoy to bits and the Concealers and Correctors which are essential for any makeup artists kit. LA Girl…

BECCA Brand Focus – Champagne Glow & Af...

Happy Monday again bellas, I’m so relieved that with all the public holidays coming up, we are having 4 week workdays for the next month. If only it could be forever *sigh*. Today I thought I’d do a roundup of all my Becca highlighters and show you the other products I have in my stash as well. Now I’ve had all of these products for many months already so I’ve tested it out to the max. If you want to know how they fare, grab a cuppa cos it’s gonna be a long one. Becca Champagne Glow Palette I’m going…
