BB Cream - Unlisted Brand - Sorbet - BB Cream

I've used this BB cream since it launched, except for a brief period when I couldn't find it anywhere. Life just wasn't the same without it and I'm only half joking. I use this every single day that I leave my house and only opt for a 'proper' foundation when I'm going out at night. It's not dirt cheap, but not hugely expensive either and a 50ml tube lasts …Read more

I'm not exaggerating when I say it's taken me years to find the perfect colour for my strawberry blonde eyebrows - NYX, Maybelline, Clinique, MAC... The list goes on. Everything was either too dark, too orange, or too grey. 05 Soft Blonde is IT. Warm enough to match the warm tones in my brows but not straight up orange. Dark enough to give definition without looking drawn on …Read more

Liquid - Maybelline New York - FIT Me Foundation (Matte + Poreless)

I was super excited to try this foundation as it got a lot of hype for being great for oily skin. It was a huge disappointment. I'm still trying to understand how a foundation can look oily while feeling almost as dry and tight as a clay mask and sink into pores while covering very little. Big fail.

Really like the packaging of this though - Here in South Africa it comes in a …

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Matte Is Everything Lipstick - Red Rules the World

HG red lipstick for my NC10 skin. Red Rules the World is a not-quite-bright-but-not-dark-either red leaning towards the warm side but without being visibly orange toned - More brickish. It's very matte but without the flatness that comes from liquid lipstick and I can wear it all day without feeling like my lips are going to shrivel up and die. It lasts for about 4 hours if I'm not …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Dove - Beauty Bar - White

Like any beauty addict, I've bought and tried tons of different soaps and shower gels. However, I always come back to good old Dove beauty bars. Quite honestly, I don't even know why I've bothered with other stuff in the past. Dove really is the best, and it's so cheap too. I also love that it comes in cardboard packaging.

Dove is brilliant at removing …

Lotions/ Creams - Vaseline - Pure Petroleum Jelly

Vaseline isn't really a moisturiser, it's a barrier-forming occlusive that prevents water loss. Practically speaking, this means it does very little when applied over dry skin but is absolutely magical when put on wet skin. It stops water from evaporating so said water stays on your skin, plumping up fine lines and softening dry flakes.

I use Vaseline in this manner (over wet …
