I thought I'd share some random pics to give you an idea of who I am... And that's a bit of me! xxx
I'll be the first to admit I have a cosmetics problem. I just can't get enough. And even though I have enough, I keep buying more. And more and more and more. Can you say #KoopSiekte!? I love face masks! I think it's one of the easiest ways to improve your skin, and even if… Continue reading A Mask for Each Occasion
I thought I'd give you some thoughts on a few Essence makeup products. Essence is a great brand, fabulously cheap and always keeping up with the trends. I include a product from a previous trend edition, which probably isn't available in store anymore (sorry!) PRISMATIC RAINBOW HIGHLIGHTER I actually like this highlighter! Don't worry, you… Continue reading Some Essence items!
I thought I'd give you a lowdown of my makeup routine (not so much a routine as grabbing the closest product...) Starting with a clean face (obviously, I have a slight thing about washing my hands, so my face is the same) and sunscreen (currently Nimue Professional SPF40). Primer - I don't always use a… Continue reading My makeup routine…
I reached 100 Instagram followers! I know it's not a lot and it's a long way off from 1000, but to me it means something and to celebrate that I will be having a mini giveaway! It's not a huge prize, but it's something free! Included in the giveaway: Essence The Gel nail polish in… Continue reading Mini Giveaway!

But, problem: it's in the USA. Solution - Aramex Global Shopper (AGS)! Yay! With AGS you get various shipping addresses around the world. Say you want… Continue reading Boxycharm subscription service (USA)
NYC stands for New York Color. It's an extremely budget friendly brand in the USA (mostly up to $4.99). I bought this foundation stick in the shade "ivory". Unfortunately there are no cosmetic testers in the USA in supermarkets/drugstores, so I had to choose a shade on sight only. This product offers light covering in… Continue reading NYC Get it All Foundation stick
I recently went to the USA on holiday and brought back loads of random cosmetics. I'll try to do a (shortish) post about each one, seeing as the products aren't available in SA (I really do wish we had more major products available in our stores, there are so many fantastic brands and products that… Continue reading e.l.f Perfect Blend Concealer
I love a nice face mask - I have hordes of them! Sheet, clay, gel, cream, serum, purifying, moisturising, hydrating bla bla bla. Last night I tried the Sorbet Smoothing Under Eye Mask Brightening & Renewing (gosh, that's a mouthful). What a nice treat! According to the Sorbet website (Smoothing under eye mask): "Soothing, brightening… Continue reading Bright eyes
For a while now there’s been a major online hoo-ha about this product finally being available in South Africa. Despite the fact that I have numerous highlighters already, I was amped to purchase this mostly due to the hype that surrounded this. You know curiosity and all that. So last weekend I ended up in… Continue reading Be the light
