great for touch ups

I received two different shades of the Bourjois little round pot eye-shadow to test and although these are the types of colours I usually go for I must say I was a bit disappointed. The colour intensity is not great at all and one has to reapply the eye-shadow to get the desired look. It’s great for touch ups when you’re on the run and the little round pot it comes in with its little mirror is really handy and compact. This however is not an eye-shadow that I would purchase again.

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush

So creamy

When buying this blush I thought I would be sorry but to my surprise I was not, I usually tend to go for a powder blush because I have an oily skin and just was worried this would make my skin look even more oily. It DIDN’T it left my cheeks with a lovely pinky glow and lasted the whole day, it did not make my skin oily at all and really blended well. It is also really affordable and a great product to have in your make-up bag, I was definitely proven wrong by this blush and will continue to use it! It felt very light on my skin and did not clog my pores. what I like about it is that it is very buildable if you want a darker blush. This is a keeper.

Garnier Pure Active Micellar Cleansing Water

SO Refreshing

So after reading so many good reviews about this product i decided to try it out for my self, i must say it removed all my make-up very easily and did not irritate my skin at all. I also use it in the mornings just to freshen up before applying my serum and day cream. It really leaves your face feeling squeaky clean and refreshed….. it will be a repurchase for me for sure :)

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

Pore erraser

I was a bit disappointed after trying this product out, I have always been a bit skeptical about primers and this has once again proved me right. I dint see any difference in my skins appearance and it made my skin even more oily than what it normally is half way through the makeup therefore just melted off my face,it is very affordable R89.00 but I wont be purchasing this product again, what it says to deliver and what it did deliver were two completely different things.

Michael Kors EDP

My “I do” Scent

My boss wore this perfume and I remember always loving the way she smelt it was then that I decided to ask her what fragrance she was wearing and get some for myself. I love this fragrance it was my fragrance of choice for my wedding day and when I wear this fragrance it always brings back so many good memories. with rich floral notes this perfume will make anyone feel like a princess. I love this fragrance. the price roughly R855.00 it does however last a long time, and a little goes a long way with this fragrance. it last the whole day and even when I have bathed I can still smell it a little bit on my skin.


A bit dissapointed

I love a good eyeliner pen because it just makes applying eyeliner to your top eye lid so much more easier. I still love the essence 2in1 eyeliner pen but was disappointed that it didn’t last long at all and left me with panda eyes. I do however have a very oily skin so it might work well with someone who has less of an oily skin. If there was a waterproof version I would definitely give that a try, I was impressed at how easily it applied but not so impressed that it didn’t last long.
