MAC Mariah Carey Collection + Giveaway

Happy Monday again bellas, I can’t even surprise you with the giveaways anymore because the title gives it away. Yeah yeah, corny I know. I hope you guys had an awesome weekend and are fresh and excited for the week ahead. I know I am because just this morning I found out that tomorrow is a public holiday. I’m so delayed but I guess that gives me time to relax again which I ain’t complaining about. It’s been so difficult to write this post. On one hand the MAC Mariah Collection is the most stunning one I have EVER seen. On…

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette First I...

So last week I decided to finally dip into the Tarte Swamp Queen palette by Grav3yardgirl. I’ve had it for over a month but since I bought my friend one as well for her birthday, I had to stash it away. It was such a mission to get this palette from Tarte but I’ve learnt my lesson. I initially ordered it during their Black Friday sale where they had 30% off. I ordered it along with a second palette for my friend and a limited edition lipstick and lipliner set. Since Tarte offer free international shipping for orders over R1 024,…

Morphe x Kathleenlights Palette Review & Swat...

Today I thought I’d share with you the gorgeous Morphe x Kathleenlights palette. I’m sure by now most of you know who Kathleen Fuentes (yep that’s her real name) is or are subscribed to her channel because she is one of the best YouTubers out there. I love watching her videos even though at times she can talk your ear off. Thank gosh for fast forward buttons. She’s collaborated with the likes of ColourPop, OFRA (you can read my review and see swatches here) and most recently with Makeup Geek. She also has her own nail polish line with the…

OFRA Vintage Vineyard Trio Swatches

Hiya bellas, I’m sure by now you’ve seen my love for the OFRA brand. The lippies in the OFRA Vintage Vineyard Trio now bring my OFRA liquid lipstick count to a whopping 12 tubes.

Urban Decay Blackmail Vice Lipstick Palette &...

Hiya bellas, I’m so tempted to say Happy Friday because it’s already the end of the week. Don’t you just love public holidays that fall close to the weekend. Firstly let me apologize for going AWOL on you the last week or two. I don’t know what is wrong me/my brains because it’s just not functioning properly. I had planned so many updates and reviews but I’ve been feeling illiterate lately. Yes literally illiterate. Whenever I tried to sit and write a blog post, my mind would hit a brick wall and all I wrote was garbage. Everything was ‘nice’ or…

Mini review + New launches from Essence and Catric...

Happy Monday bellas, With new ranges cropping up left and right, I thought I’d share with you some more affordable alternatives from sister brands Essence and Catrice. I’m sure by now you’ve seen some of the new launches from Essence and Catrice in stores but the Dischem close to me seems to be on the slow train right now. So far I’ve only picked up 2 products which I’ll do a quick review on but there’s so much more I’d love to get my hands on. Essence Light up Your Face Luminizer Palette – R89 Both Essence and Catrice introduced…
