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.¬†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 package¬†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 […]
