More Swiitch Beauty in my arsenal plus a bit of a ...

Hiya bellas, I’ve had these Swiitch Beauty products in my collection for a while now and thought I’d do a roundup because I still get a lot of questions around them. I’ve also seen some negativity around the brand so I’m going to give you my honest opinion (as always) on why I continue to support them. So let’s address the elephant in the room. I’ve seen a lot of people saying that Swiitch Beauty purchases the products from China and just slaps their logo on the products and puts their markup on them. One of their recent Instagram posts showed that…

MorpheMe March Brushes are MAC dupes?!?

Hiya bellas, I got my MorpheMe March brushes last week and some of them looked sorta familiar. I rummaged through my brush collection and tried to spot the closest looking ones. Then I put them to the test to see if they were dupes and here’s what I came up with. Morphe M401 – $14 This large pointed powder brush is perfect for baking under the eyes as well as sweeping away the bakage without disturbing the lower layers. It’s fluffy enough to apply blush to the cheeks as well as a tapered tip for contouring. The tulip shaped brush…

The Original Beauty Blender – To DUPE or not...

Hiya loves, So today we’re chatting about a very grey area in the beauty community. Why use a beauty sponge? Does it need to be an original beauty blender? Do cheaper ones work the same? Why is it so expensive? What are your options? I’m here to give you my honest opinion on the matter. You might not like it but I’ve tried enough ‘dupes’ to compare. First and foremost, there is no exact dupe for the original Beauty Blender. Full Stop. Period. End of story. Anyone that tells you otherwise either doesn’t know what a dupe is or they have never…

This is long overdue since it is to commemorate my blog’s 2nd Blogiversary which I did announce here but for various reasons, I decided to hold off on it. Until now.

I’m not sure if I mentioned this before, but I haven’t been wearing much makeup for the last couple of weeks since it is the month of Ramadaan. Not that there is anything wrong with it, I’ve just been spending my time doing other things before work instead of beating my face. So this month the amount of items I’ve worn the entire day has been limited to lips, flawless skin and a pop of highlight. I’ve tried a lot of new products the last couple of weeks and these are the ones that I really enjoyed. Palladio Velvet Matte Cream Lip…
