YSL “The Street and I” Collection

YSL Beauty is a recent discovery of mine, and so far I like what I’m seeing (and using)! I’ve used their fragrances before (Black Opium is a favourite of mine) and of course I’ve tried the famous Touché Éclat, but I’ve never had a chance to just dive into the beauty range and explore it. YSL Beauty opened a standalone boutique store in Sandton City last year which offers a variety of their make-up items as well as the Le Vestiaire Fragrance range (I am dying for the Caban variant!). The recent limited edition goodies that I  got to try out are from “The Street and I” collection- I played around with the “Keep An Eye On Me” couture palette and the “Kiss&Blush Lip Duo", and here are my thoughts! The “Keep An Eye On…

#ColourYourMood with Maybelline Lipsticks

It’s no secret that I have a lipstick addiction, if my collection of 200 lippies is anything to go by. It’s the most used item in my handbag, and the most re-purchased. I am often not fazed by eyeliner, foundation or blush launches, but the moment I see a new lipstick stand at the shops, my eyes go all googly, and I run over to it and check it out. I love all kinds of lipsticks- matte, liquid, metalized, and I can’t seem to get enough. I recently suffered a loss of 5 of my favourite lipsticks and my beloved Lipstick palette(RIP) when my handbag got stolen, and I was the most devastated about losing my lip companions(who needs bank cards or driver’s license, right?) more than anything else. My lipstick also always tell…

Urban Decay Razor Sharp Eyeliners

When you are surrounded by make-up all day, errrday, you see hundreds of products come across your desk(I know, living the dream here!;)). As a make-up addict, testing out different products is my dream but I don’t happen to love all of them. I love colour but the thing is, sometimes it’s difficult for me to incorporate it into my makeup every day, because I’m lazy AF in the morning. I would rather get 20 minutes extra sleep( I don’t know how I’m going to have a child one day because I love sleep so much!), so I like something quick and easy that can incorporate some colour into my daily look. When Urban Decay launched the Razor Sharp Water-Resistant Longwear Liquid Eyeliners in 20 colours I thought I might go crazy- I needed…

Christmas time is almost here, and I finally put up my Christmas tree this weekend! I love the holiday season, and personally I can’t wait for it to commence!

Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Lipsticks

Lipsticks, lipsticks, lipsticks. Something that I adore and absolutely can’t live without. My lipstick collection is rather vast and is ever growing, so it brings me a lot of joy to add these 3 new babies to my collection. Introducing the new L’Absolu Rouge Lipsticks! Today, 25 years after its creation, L’Absolu Rouge reinvents itself, becoming even more precious, feminine and surprising than ever. Lancôme gave free rein to make-up artist Lisa Eldridge to create 25 new shades, variations of pinks and reds, from the most nude to the most extroverted. All of them have a unique vibration and impact, as well as timeless sophistication and elegance. L’Absolu Rouge was also reinvented with a variety of textures, two of which will be available in South Africa-cream and matte. After choosing her colour, each woman…
