Gold Status





I have had another brick palette in my collection for quite some time so I already knew how amazing these palettes were before I got sent one from the BSA team!

These are extremely affordable, it consists of two blush shades, bronzer and a highlighter – these are great for travelling as everything is in one palette. For the price they are a great addition to any newbie or pro make-up addicts.

Best Pharamacy Foundation!

LA Girl has been killing it with some really great product launches and one of these products are their Pro Coverage foundations. It leaves the skin with a dewy coverage so its perfect for all dry skin ladies like myself. Definitely worth every scent I have been using it for the past few weeks and seriously can’t get enough.

For The Perfect Glow!

These are just amazing!!! They are affordable and for the quality it’s definitely R149 worth spending. I purchased mine a few weeks ago from Dischem whilst they had a 3 for 2 special and since then I can’t get enough. I love the fact that LA Girl launched so many shades so everyone is bound to find a shade that suits them.

Good price, amazing quality, pigmentation – that’s everything you want.

L.A. Girl HD Pro Conceal

Best Concealer EVER!

These are simply the best concealers I’ve used. This concealer is hyped about for so many reasons. It covers dark circles really well and also it doesn’t flake like many concealers do. To set your concealer I definitely recommend the HD powder and your concealer will stay put all day.

{Review} Johnson’s Vita – Rich Soothing Body Wash With Rose Water

Johnson’s has been a brand I’ve used since my childhood, in fact since I was born – when I think of the brand the first thought that pops out of my head is baby care, but Johnson’s is not only a baby caring range they have also released a range suitable for the use of adults.

The lovely team over at Beauty South Africa sent me one of Johnson’s newly launched products their Vita-Rich Soothing Body Wash to try out. I’ve actually been tempted to buy this range ever since I’ve seen in pop up at my local Pick n Pay store, so I was really happy I got to first try it out before buying. The Johnson’s Vita-Rich body care range consists of body lotion (R42. 95 for 400ml), washes (R29. 95 for 250ml) and bar soap (R11. 95 for 175g) which is inspired by nature for a more healthier looking skin. All of these products are enriched with rose water, grape seed oil, papaya and berry seed extract – which sounds like a fruity explosion waiting to explode on my skin.

Although I haven’t tried any of the other products in the range I have to admit I am really excited to get my hands on them too from the experience I’ve had using their body wash containing rose water. I’ve never used a rose water infused product before, the scent really tickles your senses and it leaves your skin smelling of roses once you’ve done of with your shower. The body wash lathers up really well so not much it needed, In my opinion for the price point you really can’t go wrong. I’ve been using the Johnsons body wash for two weeks now and I’ve really been enjoying it,it’s sensitive on my skin which is important for me having a skin issue so if you suffer from sensitive skin you will still be able to use this and the extract doesn’t irritate the skin at all.

Miss Manga Mega Volume


I am quite fond of the wand bristles and it does separate my lashes really well when I apply the mascara, I also notice that this mascara doesn’t make my lashes clump like so many other mascara I have used. This mascara creates a fair amount of volume, but mostly it gives you really good length… I love the fluttery eye look it creates and you can apply two coats to make those lashes look a bit more dramatic for an evening event. During the day for work one coat is more then enough…

During the course of the day I find that this mascara also doesn’t flake at all which is a good sign because some mascaras tend to flake off during the day which is so uncool! I want my mascara to hold my lashes all day long with no clumping nor flaking. It also removes very easily at night when I want to cleanse my face, a few drops of my Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water on face pads and gently rub that over my eyes and viola the mascara removes that easy, sometimes I tend to just use a normal facial wipes and that does a good job too.
