    Postbox Courier x Boxycharm

    Postbox Courier and Boxycharm

    If you are a regular reader of my blog you know that I like a bit of online shopping here and there when I have saved up some coins. While I don’t mind waiting 2 months plus for items that I buy from AliExpress, when I buy makeup from the USA I want my items delivered to me ASAP. In the past I have used this one shipping forwarding service and I wasn’t 100% happy with their service. So when the people from PostBox Courier contacted me and asked me to review their service, I was on board and ready to jump ship. I used this service to ship my September Boxycharm, read on to find out about Postbox Courier and to peep the contents of the September Boxycharm. Read more…

    Black Radiance True Complexion Contour Palette

    If you guys didn’t know – the makeup brand Black Radiance has made its way to South African shores and is being exclusively sold at Dischem. Several weeks ago I went to the store to check out what the brand had to offer and to see what items piqued my interest. I must say that my first feeling was one of underwhelm; I felt like the collection was outdated. I promptly went to check their Instagram to see if what I saw is the makeup they are selling in the US or if they brought their outdated stock to South Africa. We are definitely missing some of their newer realeases here in SA, I really hope that they have plans to bring us up to date makeup trends in the future because if they don’t, I think it will be difficult for them to make a mark in the country.

    The Jaclyn Hill palette

    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. Read more…

    low end vs high end // setting sprays

    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.
