Essence Metal Shock Eyeshadow

I know this isn't exactly a new product, but I've had it for a while now and thought I'd give you a quick lowdown. I have two shades - "07 1 second to mars" and "03 galaxy rocks". The tube says: "creamy eyeshadow for an incredible metallic and vibrant finish" and that it definitely is!… Continue reading Essence Metal Shock Eyeshadow

Avon Footworks Nail and Cuticle Serum

Due to the fact that I regularly wear gel polish on my nails and have to soak it off, my cuticles and surrounding nail area can get very dry. I'm always applying nail oil - usually Essence nail oil. Recently I saw this in an Avon catalog and thought I'd give it a try. I'm… Continue reading Avon Footworks Nail and Cuticle Serum

Gel Nails DIY

About a year ago I decided to start trying to do my own gel nails. I used to go to a salon to get my nails done, but having to go every 3-4 weeks at around R300 a shot started adding up. I’ve seen and heard about the Maskscara brand of Gel-It polish and thought… Continue reading Gel Nails DIY

Items that you either can’t afford, you want again, you’ve wanted to try for ages, you’re saving up for etc… Here are some items I would love to try (some of them I’m not even… Continue reading Dream Christmas Wish List

A walkabout… 

You know how people go walking and hiking in the great outdoors? I do that in Dischem and Clicks. I should actually not be allowed to go into these stores unsupervised. Not that it would help. Hahaha... #koopsiekte I'm one of those people who would go in to get 1 or 2 items that I… Continue reading A walkabout… 

A Mask for Each Occasion

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
