Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Conce...

I’ve been slacking so much lately it feels as if these posts were supposed to be up ages ago. I always get asked about the Milani foundation so it’s finally time for my review. After seeing Tati from the Glam Life Guru rate it as one of her ultimate drugstore foundations, my interest was peaked. Then Kathleen Lights and Desi Perkins listed it as favourites and on it went to my wishlist. If you’ve noticed the trend of my shopping splurges, you’ll realize that almost 90% is influenced by social media be it YouTube, Instagram or Twitter. The rest of…

July Favourites

OMG can you believe it’s August already. I don’t know where this year is flying to but I just can’t keep up. I already feel like there isn’t enough hours in a day to get stuff done and now not enough days in a year. It feels like everyday is such a rush and we don’t properly get to enjoy what’s happening around us. I feel in some way this blog grounds me. It gives me a chance to sit down, think and write about what I love. So without any further ado, here’s the products I’ve been loving for…

UD Week – Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation,...

So this post, I’m afraid, is going to be all over the place. This is probably the most disappointing purchase I’ve made to date but there is light at the end of this tunnel. Hold on tight and let’s get on to it. So with the recent launch of Urban Decay in Sandton, I suspected there to be throngs of people and not much leeway to shop and boy was I right. People had been queuing since 6am only to be let into the store after 11. Luckily though, there were snacks and a DJ to lighten the mood and…
