Avon Big & False Lash Volume Mascara

Avon Big & False Lash Volume Mascara

Let me start off by saying that this is probably the thickest and biggest tube of mascara that I have ever used and that it looks great with the pink in.
I like the formula of this mascara a lot. I have found that some lash extending mascaras have a very wet consistency which leads to some messiness which I don’t care for at all.
This mascara not only lengthens my lashes in a very nice way, but it also seperates my lashes and I like that a lot.
You get the length without looking clumped at all.
This is a great mascara which I will definitely repurchase again. It gives my non-existent lashes exactly what they need.

Avon Lip Crayon

Avon Ultra Color Lip Crayon

If I could give this lip crayon ten marks on this site, I definitely would. I already have them in a pink colour, but received the shade ‘Raspberry Rush’ to review and I like this colour even more than the light pink shade I have.
The vanilla smell is great and not too overbearing and the pigments in these crayons are insane.
The finish is sheer and one would give it one look and think that it is drying on your lips, but it is actually very moisturising.
All in all I have been believing for a very long time that this is a wonderful product and I always go back to it.

Theravine Super Hydrating Day Cream

Theravine Super Hydrating Day

I received this from a friend and have been using it now for 3 weeks. My skin is dry and I usually struggle to find a product that replenishes my skin properly.

The packaging is very plain and simple and I detect no scent on this product. It is just a very straight forward product.

The question remains still, does it properly moisturise my dry skin? Yes it does, in a very delightful way.

The consistency is very light and it absorbs very fast, hence one will think that the product is not moisturising at all. But it does it in a very subtle way with miraculous results.

I will definitely repurchase this product!

MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus Lipstick

This lipstick is my first ever MAC lipstick I ever tried, and I love it a lot.
It is a statement colour that suits any skintone. Bright pink with pigments to die for.
IT is comfortable on the lips and looks great most of the day, without having to touch up constantly.
A definite winner!

GOSH BB Powder

GOSH BB Powder

I am not really a person to use powders, but since this heat has been hitting us mercilessly, I have noticed that I need to touch up on my face during the day and so the hunt for a good powder began. A powder that will not make me look caked and a powder that is buildable.
So when I saw this in store and tested it, I realised that this is exactly the product I need.
I have been using it over my BB Cream on a daily basis and it works wonderfully. I also tested it over my Clarins Everlasting Foundation + and I also had no problems with it. I love this BB Powder and will definitely repurchase it again.



I received this item as a gift from my friend and I am blown away by it. I have come to love primers over the past couple of months and a good primer has become more of a must have than a nice to have item for me. The consistency of this primer is different than the other primers I have used as it is brown in colour and it literally disappears weightlessly on my skin.
My skin does not feel caked or sweaty when using this primer. I have found that it does not really mattify my face during the day when I start to sweat in the heat, but it keeps my makeup wonderfully intact the whole day and I love that! this product is worth every cent you spend on it and I will repurchase it without a doubt.
