Gerard Cosmetics Naughty & Nice Review &...

Hiya bellas, I ordered the Gerard Cosmetics Naughty & Nice set while they were having their holiday bundles. I only received a few items but golly, I’ve loved the items I had from the brand before but these new ones are on a whole ‘nother level. I’ve been eyeing these for a while so I just couldn’t resist. The set I bought contained a mini Slay All Day Setting Spray, a Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipstick and a Metal-Matte Liquid Lipstick. I’m all about the matte lip and after trying the ColourPop Ultra Metallics, I wanted to compare it as well as…

I’ve cancelled Lip Monthly – November ...

There’s no such thing as happy Mondays so hiya bellas. Hope you had an awesome weekend (as short as it was). Don’t you wish we had 3 day weekends instead of 2. I might be able to keep my sanity then. I previously did a post here on the Lip Monthly subscription box I joined in October. When signing up I got my first bag for just $5 which I thought was well worth the price to try 4-5 full sized products, some of which are not available in SA. However, after receiving the latest bag, I don’t find it…

HD Makeup from Clicks – Slay or Nay?

Hiya bellas, I’ve seen the HD Makeup brand available at very few selected Clicks stores over the last couple of months. Most of the time the boxes are squashed and the items are just strewn around like discontinued stock. I hardly ever reach for the ‘cheap’ makeup because there’s almost no colour payoff and the packaging always looks like crap. After seeing the HD cosmetics feature on Prettifulblog here, I made a mental note to keep my eye out for them. When I eventually found them again, the gold and white packaging beckoned for me to add more. I couldn’t…

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…

Lip Monthly October Subscription Bag Impressions/R...

Happy  Monday bellas, Let me start off by profusely apologizing for this post in advance. I was excited to show you this new subscription service I had stumbled across but recent events have me limited. The Lip Monthly October bag was the first time I had ordered from them. I got it at a steal of only $5 including free international shipping. It is a recurring monthly subscription service that contains 4-5 full sized products in a cute little collectable bag. I first heard about the Lip Monthly bag chatting to a fellow makeup junkie at the Pro Beauty Expo.…
