Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art in Topaz Twinkle, Burnished Bling and Peach Prism – Review and Swatches

Giddy. That’s what I felt when I opened a parcel from Revlon containing 3 must-haves from the new PhotoReady Eye Art Lid + Line + Lash range. ‘Dabble in makeup artistry with the NEW Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art Lid + Line + Lash – dual-ended liquid shadows that sparkle and shine for an eye look that’s all your own. You control the look you want, and how you want to wear it. Go bold, go glam, go bling – it’s all in your hands.’   These new dual sided eye shadow wands have a cream shadow on the one end and a glitter shadow on the other. They come in an array of bright and intense colours, but it was the more neutral toned ones that grabbed my attention. My heart really almost skipped a beat when I saw pics of Topaz Twinkle on the web. The glitter shadows are super fun to play with, but the quality of the cream shadows are superb and more than enough reason to pop these in your basket. The cream shadows are easy to apply, stay put the whole day, crease minimally and the shades are beautifully vibrant. I can go on and on, but I think the swatches speak for themselves. All three of the below shades are gorgeous, but Topaz Twinkle is utterly beautiful and, trust me, if you are into taupes, you must have it.   These limited addition shadow duos come in 10 shades and retail for R150. xoxo   *Disclaimer: Products were sent to me for review purposes.

L’Oréal Miss Manga Punky Mascara and Superliner Blackbuster Review

I have so much love for L’Oréal mascaras. There truly are few other brands that can do mascara the way they do. The original Miss Manga is one of my favourites and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a tube of Punky. Be warned though…Miss Manga Punky Mega Volume Mascara is not for the faint-hearted. This baby gives volume. And lots of it. If you want fluttery and feathery lashes, you need to look elsewhere. Miss Manga Punky is a styling texturizing mascara and all about the drama. I was prepared to fall in love with Miss Manga Punky, but I was not prepared for the fabulousness which is the Superliner Blackbuster eyeliner. I don’t do liquid liner and I don’t do winged liner. I have tried many eyeliner pens/markers, but I always go back to my trusty pencil. But the L’Oréal Superliner Blackbuster eyeliner has changed that. This marker works like a charm. It gets right in between my top lashes for a gorgeous and dark lashline. The liner stays put the whole day and it doesn’t transfer, smudge or fade. The big tip of this marker was a bit misleading as I thought that I would not be able to get a neat, thin line, but it proved me wrong. This liner is a winner and I highly recommend it. I have been using it every day for about a month and I will probably repurchase it before my hand touches any of my pencil liners. Blackbuster truly is a super liner. Miss Manga Punky and Superliner Blackbuster retail for R150 each. xoxo *Disclaimer: Products were sent...

Halloween makeup fun with Essence and a GIVEAWAY!

I love dressing up. And fancy dress parties are the best. I don’t really get the opportunity to do this often anymore (most of my friends and I being oud en getroud and all of that) and that’s why I jumped at Essence’s offer… we give you some inspiration with a Halloween makeup look and Essence makeup to the value of R100, and you recreate. Hell yes! This was the inspiration… This was the makeup… I first prepped my skin with primer, foundation and powder and then I got to work. I first used the All About Nude Eyeshadow Palette in 01 Nude to make the  eyes look all pretty. This is a fantastic little palette. The shadows are silky and apply beautifully. I even used the semi-matte shade bottom-middle to fill my brows. I have been using this little gem on most days since receiving it and if you like nudes, this is a perfect palette for travelling. I used the Extra Longlasting Eyeliner Pen to line my eyes and create a cat eye. I also used my trusty old Essence black eye pencil (I always have one of these in my stash) for the nose and lip, together with the pen. I applied loads and loads of the Multi Action Mascara to my lashes. I didn’t have the time (or patience) for the falsies, so those are being saved for another special occasion. Then I swept a blush brush across the 3D Eyeshadow in 03 Irristable First Love and applied it across the mid section of my face (over the nose, under the eyes and up to the...
