August Favourites

Hi beautiful bellas, Springtime has finally arrived! That means it’s September (YAY it’s my birthday tomorrow) already and boy, did this year fly by so fast. It feels like just the other day I started wearing makeup, had a baby and started blogging. On that note, my angel is already a year old. Isn’t she just too adorable? So this is the first time I’m sharing my monthly favourites. A lot of these products I’ve owned for a while but with winter making me lazy and trying to get my skin to not to flake all over the place from…

Benefit Cosmetics Haul + First Impressions

If you’ve read my previous Wishlist Wednesday post, you would know that I was super excited for Benefit Cosmetics to be finally brought back to South Africa. On top of that, I found a select few of my favourite beauty bloggers were allowed to host a VIP experience with 5 guests at the Sandton City launch on social media. I entered two of the competitions, one being the Friday night before the official launch on the 11th July and the other being the Sunday after. When I got the message that I was chosen for the Friday night launch, I…

Wishlist Wednesday – Benefit Cosmetics

With July finally here, the launch of Benefit Cosmetics in South Africa is just mere days away. I cannot explain how excited I am for this brand to be brought back to South Africa. I missed it the first time around as they were stocked in Woolworths and pulled out of South Africa in 2012 (long before I even started wearing makeup). I’ve seen their products on websites, Instagram and mountains of Youtube videos, but I was always too scared to have them shipped to SA and being slapped with high duty tax costs. When I say excited I don’t…

Monday Mascara Mayhem – Drugstore Picks

Mascara. Mascara. Mascara. Where do I begin? Up until about 5 months ago, I absolutely hated wearing mascara. Yes HATE is a strong word but I swear, it felt like having goggas (that’s what we call insects) latching on to my lids and blurring my vision. Yes I know I was being dramatic but that’s how I truly felt for a very long time. That, in all honesty, was one of the reasons I’d chosen to get lash extensions in the first place. You can read more about my horrible experience here, but I loved the way my eyes looked…

Catrice Week – Eyes & Brows

They say brows frame the face… and I 100% agree. I’m always on the lookout for new brow products to try to achieve the most natural finish. Catrice, for me, has some hits and misses but I’m always willing to try out if they launch new products. Catrice Eye Brow Stylist Pencil This eyebrow pencil in shade ’Brow-n-eyed Peas’ is one of my favourite products from the brand. It stays in my handbag and goes wherever I go. It is a soft, milk chocolate shade and is easily buildable.

Wishlist Wednesday – Too Faced Better than S...

Packaged in a pale, metallic pink, sleek bottle, the Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara is a worldwide hit. One coat and lashes are full and defined. Two coats and lashes are even more luscious, curled, and dramatic. Three coats help you achieve the most intense, black, multidimensional lashes possible. Now who wouldn’t want that out of a mascara. The hourglass shaped brush, inspired by the curves of a woman’s body, has extra stiff bristles that
