May Favourites

Happy FriYAY bellas, Yes I know this post is overdue but after a long week all I want to do is crawl into bed and sleep and have happy dreams about touring the world and buying lots of makeup. Not the most creative ideas for the weekend but eh, what’s a girl to do on an empty stomach. Thankfully the last couple of days have been better than anticipated but with the late night snacking when hubby returns from prayers, I’m not sure if I’ll be losing any weight this Ramadaan. Gotta start early for that summer bod *hides away…

New Essence Products Haul

About two weeks back I mentioned that Essence had launched a whole lot of new products that were added to their permanent range here. Shortly afterwards I found them at Dischem and picked up a few I wanted to try. This post has inevitably taken so long for me to post because I had mixed feelings towards some of the items and wanted to test it thoroughly before posting my review. I feel I’m ready now because I’ve been reaching for some of these products on the daily so let’s get on to it. For lips I picked up the…

April Monthly Faves & Fails!

Today I’ll be sharing a few of the products I’ve loved during the last month. As you know I’ve been rotating my makeup everyday to try new looks and combinations whilst also not allowing the money I’ve spent to not have been a complete waste. No doubt there are some products that are way better than others and there’s just no chance they’re being overtaken anytime soon so I’ve left those categories out completely. So without any further ado, here are the products I’ve enjoyed reaching for during the month of April. L’Oreal Infallible 24H Stay Fresh Foundation – R185…

Friday Favourites

As embarrassing as this is for me to say, I’ve probably got more makeup than I’d be able to use in a lifetime. Hi my name is Nisa and I’m a makeup junkie. I know most of you can relate because if you’re reading my blog, you probably love makeup too. It’s literally an addiction. Wanting to try new products you got excited for the first time you saw it, felt giddy and anxious the first time you opened it, and then depending how it performed felt either elated you’d found your new go-to item or upset as hell you’d…

Wishlist Wednesday – New Essence AW/16 produ...

With us enjoying the falling leaves of autumn and winter creeping upon us here in the southern hemisphere, I must admit, as much as I love sunshine, I cannot wait for these blistering hot days to be put behind us. But alas, along with the cold brings dry, pale skin, chapped lips and tired eyes. Luckily for us, Essence has brought out a whole new range of products perfect to banish winter face. They’re all part of the permanent range so if you miss out, you can be rest assured they’ll be restocked for you to get your hands on…
