When I heard news about the Jaclyn Hill palette in January, I just knew that I had to buy it when it launched. That date finally came along on the 21st of June which was the official launch date. The palette was sold out in 45 minutes, I was so happy to have been able to get my hands on one :). I have received questions about the intricate details of how I bought the palette and thus I have decided to write a post giving you guys all the details and the shipping times so you can get a feel for it in case you ever want to buy makeup from the US. I have also filmed a video of a makeup look I have created using the palette, peep it after the jump.
I am totally in love with my evening skincare routine, I love the feeling of taking off makeup and nourishing my skin with yummy products to help it rejuvenate during the night. I have kept a consistent skincare routine for over a year, the only things that had changed are the products that I have used and the introduction of serums from about September last year. As expensive as they are, I feel like serums have helped my skin tremendously, I am a bit obsessed with them. Read further to find out the other products that I use in my evening skincare routine.
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.
A store like Legit is not one where I typically buy my makeup; I have seen their makeup collections, however, I have never even thought of trying any of their products out… until now. I saw mentions of this Legit Bronzing Powder floating around on my Twitter timeline a few weeks ago – FOMO immediately grabbed me and I knew I had to get it. I was lucky enough to find it at the first Legit store that I looked and at R29.99, it is a steal!
I had been wanting to buy this foundation since last year after seeing a few of my favourite Youtubers giving it a lot of love and great reviews. Off I went to Clicks to test it out and buy my shade, only to find that they didn’t have all the testers 🙁 whomp whomp. I always wonder how we are expected to buy foundation if there aren’t any testers available.
As part of my daily makeup routine I do not wear eye shadow every day because it takes so long to apply. On the days that I do apply eyeshadow, I first apply primer and then use an eyeshadow base. The eyeshadow base helps to even out the eyelid, lightens it up and makes the eyeshadows pop. I currently have 3 eyeshadow bases in my makeup collection; this post will go through them and I also have swatches of each eyeshadow base.
