GIVEAWAY: Makeup Revolution Foundation, Blush ...

Today I have an exciting post for you guys. Exciting because this is the first collaboration post in I’ve done in years. I’ve teamed up with Aisha from Stardust & Lipstick to review the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define concealer which everyone has been raving about is a dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape I reviewed here. It’s a big deal to find a dupe for such a product because in that post I mentioned how the Shape Tape is the best concealer in the world in my opinion. I also managed to get the foundation and blush palette so…

A loadful of Lippies in these Sephora Favorites se...

Hiya bellas, Today I’m going to be sharing with you two lip sets I picked up from Sephora last year. After months of testing, I can give you my opinion on the items because most of them are individually available and Sephora always has different variations of these lip sets on offer if you’re interested in picking one up. Also, I think the new ones for 2018 will be released soon so I can let you know if it’s worth it. Let’s start with the smaller of the two sets. Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip – $28 ($68 value)…

The BEST concealer in the world + causes of dark c...

Dark circles are the bane of my existence. That, along with pesky mosquitoes and washing my makeup brushes. The never-ending struggle of trying to hide them, wishing they could disappear forever. I don’t have the darkest undereye circles by any means but over the last few months they have darkened considerably. I’ve been on a quest to find the best concealer but also try to find the root of the problem. I’ve been told a number of possible reasons could be causing them. First and foremost, lack of sleep. I get around 3-4 hours of shut eye each night and…

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette First I...

So last week I decided to finally dip into the Tarte Swamp Queen palette by Grav3yardgirl. I’ve had it for over a month but since I bought my friend one as well for her birthday, I had to stash it away. It was such a mission to get this palette from Tarte but I’ve learnt my lesson. I initially ordered it during their Black Friday sale where they had 30% off. I ordered it along with a second palette for my friend and a limited edition lipstick and lipliner set. Since Tarte offer free international shipping for orders over R1 024,…

Wishlist Wednesday – Tarte Holiday Sets 2016...

With throngs of holidays sets being released by brands each week, I can’t help but lust over some of them. After experiencing sub-par, mediocre workmanship in this holiday collection last year, I’ve been skeptical to purchase any holiday sets thus far. I’ve been brainwashed into thinking the items are made in bulk on the other side of the world to save costs because they know people NEED to buy gifts for their loved ones. I know all items are made in bulk in factories all over the world, but hey, I’m trying to change my perception. I’ve seen so many gorgeous new…
