I was sent this lovely little palette to review earlier this year, but fell instantly in love with it and it quickly became a permanent fixture in my makeup bag. So much, that I had forgotten to write a review about it. So when I was using it once again Friday morning, I realised that it is very close to hitting pan, and that I should tell you how I have been experiencing it.
E380B – Walking on Eggshells
Now let me tell you why I love this little palette so much.
- The colours are simply beautiful.
- It blends easily without a fuss.
- No fallout of product at all.
- It does last a long time. Seeing that I have been using mine for nearly five months every day and it still has not physically hit pan yet.
- The shades in this palette are right up my alley and I have been able to pull off many different looks with it.
- It lasts most of the day, but I have found that if I apply an eyelid primer that it extends my wear to the whole day.
As you can see they are marked eyelid, browbone and crease. I have tried applying it as they indicate and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, but I prefer to wing it each day and see what looks I can come up with.
I know this picture does not do a lot of justice as the lighting is just so bad, but as you can see I used the browbone and eyelid shade to create this look. It is a very natural everyday look for me. And I use the crease shade a lot when I want to add a subtle smoky eye. The gold undertones in the brown is just perfect.
Anyway, I will definitely be repurchasing this product. You can find all Wet ‘n Wild products at Clicks stores nationwide and this little gem will only set you back R49-95, which is great value considering the great quality.
Till next time

GOOD MORNING MY FELLOW POUTERS!
I am proud to announce that I am now a owner of these super cute little fragrances, because I WON the Essence #MYMESSAGE competition on Facebook!
Essence has always been one of my go to brands when I want something really nice to pamper myself with, that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg! They were holding a competition last month for their new range of fragrances called #MYMESSAGE, and I won a nice hamper of these 5 brand new fragrances all thanks to the Essence team, and they were delivered to me straight to my front door!
Personally I usually lean towards the sweeter notes, but with this range it was actually a pleasant surprise that the Luck fragrance was my favorite…it has a more masculine scent, which lingered all day long! My brother funny enough thought it was a unisex perfume!
The 5 fragrances in the range are:
Looking good this summer is one thing, but smelling great is now at the top of my list too, and thanks to the Essence team I no longer need to find my fragrance of the season, its definitely LUCK from ESSENCE!
These also make a great friendship gift as you can write in a name or a message at the back of the box!
You can find yours at a Clicks outlet near you and many other exciting things like these for this spring time pampering:
Till next time lovelies!
Listen up gents – Sorbet don’t only favour the fairer sex, they think you deserve some grooming too and because of this they have launched their male-only grooming emporium. Think beards, think musky smells, think all things manly – they’ve got you covered.
Sorbet launched their very first man-porium in September 2014 in Sandton City and are now following suit with opening the next in the chain line – a store in Bedfordview at Village View Shopping Centre.
They understand looking good is not always as easy as the woke-up-like-this that you guys pull off so well and sometimes need some added grooming. Don’t think of it as a salon, think of it as a way to accentuate your manly ways with an added touch of polished perfection. They do not want the treatments to be seen as flash but they want their guests to feel relaxed, not intimidated and invited in a discerning manner.
The treatments on offer range from facials for tip-top skin care, to hair colour treatments, massages and “Man Plan” packages including the flagship, The 19th Hole: haircut, hot towel shave and a manicure. All of their treatments include complimentary whiskey, espresso and WIFI.
Sorbet MAN stocks internationally renown brands like Dermalogica, Blue Beards, Redken and KST.
If Sorbet is good enough to keep the ladies in your life looking on point there is no reason why Sorbet cannot make you feel good about your skin, hair and overall well being.
For more information on Sorbet MAN, check out Sorbet’s website.
Ladies, you are welcome to spoil the men in your life easily; and no worries, you’re welcome gentleman! 😉
I love doing my eye makeup. Even more so than my lips or my cheeks. I always feel that when my eye makeup is perfect, that everything else will fall into place. In this post I will explain to you how you can have beautiful eyes using only 6 Catrice makeup items.
Step 1: Catrice Prime and Fine Eyeshadow Base (R62-99) – This is such a lovely product to use as you only need to apply a little bit of product. It actually enhances the colour of your eyeshadow and it makes your eyeshadow last longer.
Step 2: Catrice eyebrow set (R89-95) – Fill in your eyebrows using this product. There are 2 colours, one for blondes and one for brunettes and it also contains a little tweezer. It is perfect for everyday use.
Step 3: Catrice Absolute Rose eyeshadow palette in Frankie Rose to Hollywood (R89-95) – This 6 pan eyeshadow palette contains lovely colours which can easily transform from day to night. The colours are highly pigmented and blends easily while they last the whole day.
Step 4: Catrice Velvet matt smokey Eyes Pencil in 020 Avockhaki (R44-95) – This pencil is dual ended with the pencil being on the one side and a little brush applicator being on the other side. It is matte and the colour payoff is amazing. It blends and smudges easily and this khaki colour compliments the rose eyeshadow colours perfectly. Perfect for daytime use.
Step 5: Catrice Made to stay inside eye Khol Kajal (R49-95) – I prefer to use black eye pencils for a night time look. It is retractable and waterproof. This product glides on smoothly and stays put the whole day which is great. I just hate it when my eyeliner creep into the corners of my eyes after a few hours. This product is wonderful as it eliminates that problem entirely.
Step 6: Catrice Jet Lash Speed Volume Mascara in Ultra black (R74-95) – I love this mascara. The arrow shaped applicator does a great job at seperating and lengthening my lashes while giving me the desired volume I so desperately need. The deep black colour makes my lashes look really defined and beautiful. I am already using my second tube of this lovely mascara.
There you have it. Six products you can use from Catrice cosmetics which can be easily transformed from day time to night time looks. I have been using all of these products for a few months now and they are great quality and they all cost under R500, which is great value.
Disclaimer: Some of these products were given to me for reviewing purposes, yet it has not altered my views of the products at all.
A little while ago Fi sent me samples of this BB cream to test. I am however not a BB cream lover at all because they sometimes claim to be something that they aren’t. So most of the times I try a BB cream once and feel so disappointed that I end up going back to using my trusty foundation daily.
I actually loved the product in the sample so much that I ended up purchasing myself the full size product. Here are my reasons for loving this product so much:
- It applies like a dream and for some reason I don’t need to apply a primer when I use this product.
- It gives maximum coverage, and this is the first time that I have come across a BB cream that gives me the desired coverage I want.
- It sits nice and tight on my skin, yet my skin is able to breathe.
- It lasts. My skin looks radiant and flawless the whole day.
- It has a SPF25. Great for me as I have now eliminated 2 steps in my morning beauty routine. No need for primer or SPF.
- The pump dispenser works like a dream.
- It does not smell of anything and does not irritate my skin in any way.
“The DermaFix Corrective Coverage range is formulated to provide 4-in-1 benefits to variety of skin care concerns and skin tones, these benefits include;
- Treat the skin with high levels of active skin care ingredients.
- Moisturise and smooth dehydrated skin.
- Prime and perfect the skin’s surface.
- Camouflage and colour correct the skin’s tone.”
It contains active ingredients like Vitamin E, Soy Peptides, Powerful Antioxidants. They come in 3 shades, Light, Medium and Dark. My skin tone is very milky and most of the time I struggle to just find a product that matches my porcelain complection, and I was surprised to see that the light colour was a perfect match for me.
They come in a 32ml pump bottle and they retail for R250, and you can purchase them from Beautyworx online shop, and I just want to give a shout out to Beautyworx for their amazing customer service!
Seems like Dermafix has restored my faith in BB creams!
