Gold Status





I thought that this concept was extremely smart and quirky! I was chuffed that one could purchase the ones they like the most and create their own unique palettes :) I also like that there are 2 different sized palettes.

I chose shimmery shades – Stay in Coral Bay; Cotton Candy; Apricotta and Strawberry Smoothie.

I was actually disapointed by the glitter shades as the glitter is only in the top layer and once it is gone then there is just a normal matte shade underneath :( The shimmer shades were pretty but not as pigmented as I would have liked and a little chalky. They emphasize texture sadly.

I think this was a great idea, but was not pleased with the shadows I chose.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick and Thin Eyeliner

Rimmel Scandaleyes Black Liner Pen :)

The packaging is very smart looking in all black with white text.

The applicator is almost like a marker pen but extremely fine tipped, which is great for creating thin wings/lines around the eyes and with a bit of pressure, the lines/wings become thicker. It’s completely up to the user’s preference.

The fragrance is almost non-existent so it is perfect for people that are sensitive to perfumes or just hate strong smelling products :)

The application is simple and smooth, and the colour is solid, so there is no need to go over your lines more than once. A little will go a long way!

I enjoyed testing this item, thank you! xxx

L.O.V Single Eyeshadows :)

I have just recently started seeing products from this range appearing all over Social Media and was excited to try it :)

The texture is super soft, It is a powder shadow but feels almost creamy :) The fall out is minimal and the texture is not chalky.

The colour is rich and pigmented, so you only need to apply one or two layers to your lids for the full effect :) This is a perfect transition colour!

The packaging is really cute, solid black with a white ‘L.O.V’ on top. There is a mini sponge applicator inside (Great for cleaning up mistakes)* and a little mirror :)

It is a tad pricey for a single shadow, but a little goes a long way :)

I love this shadow, and would definitely recommend! :)

Concealer for pale skin :P

This product was NEW when I picked it off the shelf to try.

I am quite pale and have quite harsh dark under-eye circles and bags and struggle to find the correct shade for me, In other words, the palest shade :P I chose the lightest shade and it works wonders for me! I am so chuffed :)

The consistency is very thin and lightweight, not heavy at all, no cake face affects, but it has a lovely medium to heavy coverage :) The smell is very faint, it hardly smells like anything which is nice as this product is so close to your nose :) Finished off with some setting powder, this product stays on for at least 8 hours and does not crease.

You only need to dab TINY little bits onto the affected areas and so therefore the product will last you a very long time, eliminating the need to keep replacing it :)

This is definitely worth the price, very affordable. I would recommend this product to friends and family :)

Sheer Twilight Beauty Body Wash

Lux :)

My mother and I love trying new things together so we decided to buy both the Lux Soft Touch Pink Floral Infusion and the Lux Sheer Twilight for R19.95 each. We tried the pink bottle first and we were so pleased! – The smell is an amazing blend of floral scents creating a bouquet of fragrance! It left our skin feeling silky soft :) The purple bottle was next – The smell is deep and of black orchids, perfect for a relaxing bubble bath in the evening! It also left our skin feeling fresh, soft and clean! We would recommend these to friends and family :)

John Frieda Liquid Shine Illuminating Shampoo

Shampoo and Conditioner

This is a lovely new product! :)

I feel like the price you pay for the amount of product you receive in each tube is fantastic value for money! And I would definitely say it is an affordable ‘high end’ product :)

The smell is HEAVENLY! It smells like nothing I have ever smelled before! Almost not like shampoo/conditioner but like a really nice perfume :) I absolutely love both fragrances!

The consistency is nice and thick, so a little goes a long way, also adding value for money :)

The shampoo gradually deepened the chocolate/brown tones in my hair, leaving it rich, vibrant and shiny! :)

The conditioner left my hair feeling soft, nourished and protected! :)

I would definitely recommend these products to friends and family! :)
