Good coverage dewy foundation

I tried this foundation out for the first time this weekend and it left my skin looking even and dewy. The finish is dewy and needs to be set. I have dry skin, so there was some texture on my nose but it was not so bad. The coverage can be medium to full coverage. Very good buy from the drugstore! I am very pleased with this buy and will be picking up a darker one for summer :)

Maybelline Brow Satin Duo Brow Pencil & Filling Powder

Maybelline Brow Pen

Maybelline Brow Satin Duo Brow Pencil & Filling Powder is my go-to brow product when I’m looking to do a full glam look. I would not use this for my everyday simple look.

The pen has two sides, on the one end you have your pencil and on the other, you have a sponge-like applicator that picks up product from the inside of its cap.

I like to use the pen/pencil side to draw on my brow hairs and I then go in with the sponge to fill in my brows.

There are three shades available; Blonde, Auburn and Deep Brown. They are available from Dischem, Clicks and I found it on Takealot for R93.

I would highly recommend this product and I will be purchasing it again!

Revlon Ultimate All-in-One Mascara

Worth the price???

I was disappointed with this product, especially because I paid R179,00. I feel like it doesn’t make much of a difference on my lashes and by the end of a work day, I have black fall-out under my eyes.

The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

Holy grail make-up remover

I love this product! It is so gentle, yet it gets all your make-up off. I use this first to loosen all the makeup then I go in with a face wipe. It’s perfect!

Beautiful matt lipgloss – great price!

I am so in love with this product! For me, this is the ideal lippie for a day-look, especially if you want something easy yet still pretty on the lips. I would recommend using this with a lip liner, just so you have those clean edges. I have the shade ’02 Beauty – Approved’ a mauve pinkish nude. Perfect for winter!

Your own personalised palette from Essence

I absolutely love this product! I have my own 8 pan palette which I am able to easily take with me with my favourite eyeshadows, blush and bronzer – all in one! The eyeshadows blend easily and are very pigmented. I really like the fact that I can choose what I want in my pallet. Such a good buy for an amazing price!
