I have always stayed far away from MAC Cosmetics, partly because their shop assistants are intimidating AF but also because being a budget babe, I just couldn’t understand WHY or HOW anyone could spend so much money on their products. Surely, it was just another...

Yesterday, I spoke all about Revlon's quiet evolution and mentioned that their latest launch, a limited edition range called Color Charge, was something very different from anything they had brought out previously. The incredible team at Revlon were kind enough to send me the entire...

According to my mom, in 2017, I became a makeup snob. What she means is that during the past year, I changed my usual routine quite a bit – I call it, “maturing” - and while I still love a great budget find, I am leaning...

I had long since given up on my search for a BB Cream when a few beauty bloggers and I had gotten into a discussion via Twitter. Some had recommended and swore by Sorbet’s BB Cream instead of my usual foundation picking, and when Sorbet...

It’s no secret that I am a huge of Wet n Wild and feel that it is one of the most underrated beauty brands of our time. Sure, American bloggers are starting to catch on, but locally few people seem to grasp just how great...

For the last year or so, I have been stalking Makeup Shack who is an online reseller for international brands that we don’t get here in South Africa. I had originally come across their store when I was looking to buy ELF locally but was...

Sadly, the brand is no longer available in South Africa and...

Have you ever tried a brand and been so surprised by their quality that you can't understand why there aren't more bloggers and YouTubers singing its praises? That's basically a summary of my experience with Wet n Wild. The brand offers incredibly affordable products that far...

It has been a really long time since I have gotten around to reviewing a foundation, so to make up for it, I thought that I’d bring you another edition of my very popular foundation face-off. For those of you, who might have missed my...

I was hoping to make my hits, misses and empties a regular series on the blog, but over the last 3-4 months, I haven’t really been using many beauty products. In fact, I go weeks without wearing a stitch of makeup and purely rely on...

Last year I discovered the beauty of Clarins for the first time and while I had tried their skincare long before then, I had major regrets for not having tried their beauty or colour range sooner. The French brand offers phenomenal quality that has me...

After purchasing my 5th Catrice Cosmetics' foundation, I felt that it's about time that I share these gems on the blog. Foundation is one of those things that we all seem to struggle to find. We want natural looking makeup, that covers our spots, blemishes and...
