Morgan Taylor’s launched The Great Ice-Scape collection, Epi-Max Baby & Junior’s won an award and if you buy Lush Charity Pot you can hydrate your bod and help save the world

Morgan Taylor’s winter collection, The Great Ice-Scape, has arrived on SA shores. It features six new (mostly) cool-toned shades (R149 each) inspired by figure skating. I was given two to play with – the frosty copper that is Ice Queen Anyone? and Lace ‘Em Up, a dark navy creme. While Ice Queen Anyone? doesn’t really […]

Review: Little Eskimo Rejuvenating Facial and Eye Ice Masks

When the PR for Little Eskimo first got in touch, asking if I’d review their ice masks I wasn’t all that excited. (Sorry Jonathan!) I kind of thought that if I really wanted to ice my face I’d just wrap up some ice and get jiggy with that. But nobody really does that. It’s awkward […]

Review: Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment

Dermalogica’s launched Nightly Lip Treatment and it’s lovely stuff. I usually put lip balm on before bed, especially in winter, to stop my lips from drying out in the night but have substituted that for Dermalogica’s newbie.Β While it’s called Nightly Lip Treatment it’s actually meant to be used around your entire mouth area to help […]

Review: Vichy Dercos Ultra Soothing sulfate-free shampoo and Nourishing Repair mask

I’m often asked about sulfate-free shampoos and who should use them and the short answer is that they’re a great pick for anyone really, but if you’re managing fine using something containing sulfates then you don’t have to stress about it. I personally don’t believe sulfates like SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate) are ‘bad’ for you, […]

Review with swatches: L’Oreal Paris Infallible Lip Paint/Matte

L’Oreal have just launched a new liquid lippie to love called Infallible Lip Paint/Matte (R179,95). The shades range from nude to super bright and they’ve got a lot of silicone in them so they glide on nicely to create a smooth matte lip colour. I’ve also noticed that if you opt for the brighter/darker colours, […]

Lush sent me a whole bunch of ‘mouth’ products and I love them

When a pakkie arrives from Lush it’s always a good day. If you order from them online you’ll know I’m not lying when I say you can usually smell your goodies before you open the parcel. Anyway, this particular packageΒ was full of what the PR said would help me take care of my ‘mouth’ as […]

Review: Rimmel Brow This Way Brow Shake filling powder

Rimmel Brow This Way Brow Shake filling powder (R99,95) has just hit the shelves and I love, love, love it! The applicator’s a little weird, kind of like a slim, furry spider leg, but it works like a bomb to transfer the brow powder (which I’ve found to be very long-wearing) in a way that’s […]

Review with swatches: Lancome Juicy Shaker Matte

When Lancome launched Juicy Shaker a while back I thought the packaging was super duper cute but it didn’t really find a permanent home in my make-up bag but only due to a matter of personal preference. I’m just not a lip oil kind of girl. New Juicy Shaker Matte (R315), however, is a completely […]
