    low end vs high end // setting sprays edition

    setting sprays

    The last time I did this low end vs high end feature it was on mascaras, this time I am coming back with setting sprays. Setting sprays are a must in all makeup stashes. The main use is to ensure that it doesn’t move around throughout the day and also depending on the type of setting sprat, they can give you a dewy finish or mattify your makeup. When I started using makeup, I did not use setting sprays because the ones that I saw were all high end and I couldn’t afford them at the time. As luck would have it, there are more affordable setting sprays available on the market, in this post I will compare the high end and low end setting sprays that I own.

    my purple lipsticks collection

    purple lipsticks

    Choosing which colour lipstick to apply is one of the *tough* decisions that I face each morning when I am getting ready for work :). I own quite a number of lipsticks, I end up wearing the same colours over and over again, sigh! To combat this, I am doing a recon of my lipsticks per shade just so I can see what I have. This time around, I did my purple lipsticks, you can check out my collection of pink lipsticks here. Read more…

    international beauty haul

    Towards at the end of last year, I did an international beauty haul. I targeted more affordable brands like ColourPop and Elf Cosmetics. I took advantage of cyber Monday sales in the US and thus I saved a pretty penny. I have used some of the products and I am mostly happy with my purchases, there are 1 or 2 which I am not happy with, but you can see that in the YouTube video that I filmed. Read more…

    Springtime beauty favourites

    Springtime beauty favourites

    Now that we are leaving spring and getting into summer, I wanted to share with you my springtime beauty favourites – these are the beauty products that I have been loving the past months. These are the products that I have consistently using every time I do my makeup and those that are now entrenched in my skin routine. It will be interesting to see how the products change as we get into summer and my needs change. I am thinking of making this a feature on my blog where 4 times a year, I list the products that I have been using the past season.  Read more…

    skin by norma five oils body series

    Earlier on last week I received products from the Skin by Norma Five Oils Body Series range. I was immediately intrigued by this locally (as local as Durban) made body care range. I have been using the range exclusively since I received it, thus it is still too early to do a review. However, in this post I want to introduce the range so that you guys will know all about it when I review it in a few weeks time. Read more…
