NYX Week – Illuminators, Contour, Setting Sp...

Happy FriYAY bellas, Today we’re rounding off the week with an array of NYX face products. I’m not going to do a long intro since you’ve already read my thoughts on the brand in the previous posts this week so let’s get on to it. NYX Illuminators – R155 ($9*) To say I searched high and low for these would be an understatement. I waited for 8 months before I finally found them restocked at Clicks and grabbed one of each just in case. The illuminators come in 5 different shades of which only 3 made it to our shores.…

Friday Favourites

I’ve been experimenting with a whole lot of new products recently and you know the saying, “Never judge a book by it’s cover”, well in my case I’ve learnt not to judge a product by it’s packaging. Today we’ll be covering a range of old and new products that have been impressing me these past two weeks (Not that I’m superstitious but I didn’t want to publish a post on Friday the 13th). I’m just kidding, we’ve been on and off without power since last Friday so I couldn’t take pics and post it in time. Grab a drink and…

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…

Wishlist Wednesday – Gerard Cosmetics

So yesterday Gerard Cosmetics launched a new range of lip pencils. If you’ve been part of the Belle Blushh family for a while then you know I love Gerard Cosmetics products. Their lipstick formula and shades are some of my favourites and their star powders are just dreamy. The range consists of 4 shades claiming to be ‘ultra pigmented and creamy but with the longevity you need’. There are four pretty shades that will suit many skin tones. I’d most like to try ‘Nude’ and ‘Peachy Keen’ and whilst each pencil retails for $16, they have a bundle available with all…

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…
