Hope you enjoy xoxo

♥ CATRICE Ultimate Nail Lacquer ♥

The Ultimate Nail Lacquers, aligned with the fashion trends of the season, are the ideal partners for a perfect manicure. The formula stands for professional coverage, unique colour brilliance, longer durability as well as high-shine results. Free of formaldehyde, toluene or phthalates.

Keep Pool is a metallic like sapphire blue and Goldfinger is just that…. pure gold. Its one of my favourite rich shades from the Catrice range

♥ THE BODY SHOP Instablur All In One Primer ♥


Colour: n/a

This face perfector blurs imperfections, giving you flawless photo-perfect skin in an instant! With Community Fair Trade marula oil and Five action perfector: Shine control for up to 12hours, reduces appearance of pores, blemish hiding, complexion unifying and ake-up extending

This is actually not a new buy, but a re-purchase. This is one of my favourite all time primers. It light weight and doesn’t feel oily. It makes my makeup last longer and surprising makes my skin feel moisturised at the same time. A definite winner

♥ ESSENCE Forbidden Volume Rebel Mascara ♥


Colour: Black

No limit! dramatic volume without clumping. the forbidden volume rebel mascara offers even more intense, instant volume thanks to the special design of the fiber brush with alternating shorter and longer fibers.

The wand has a wave like shape and it very wet with product. I was sure it was going to clump a lot. I was wrong, it applied very easily, i used 2 coats and no clumping! Essence never disappoints when it comes to their mascara’s.

Available from Dis-Chem and Clicks for R 64.95
