UK Beauty Haul | COMPETITION win The Balm {VIDEO}


I thought I would share some of the goodies I bought recently from the UK. All four are in my opinion ‘iconic’ products/brands, well spoken about in the bloggeing community such as:

Mary Lou Manizer from the Balm (which you can buy in SA here) this highlighter is the most perfect golden shimmer that lasts all day and doesn’t move which means no glitter ball face!

Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze, we get this range here in SA but for some reason Maybelline South Africa think we want to look like a peacock, I ain’t about that life so I bought the most talked about shade and I have not been disappointed it is the best formula and although it is cream there is no creasing and it lasts all day. My lovely friend Le’Chelle from Taylor Made shared a lovely simple make-up look with this view it here

Collection lasting perfection concealer, well this one is just spoken about way too much to not pick it up. For something so affordable I am so impressed with this concealer it doesn’t crease under the eyes and offers full coverage in one sweep, a definite MUST.

Barry M nail polish in Guava – the formula of this polish is the best I have ever tried and again for an affordable price the quality is like no pharmacy brand I have ever tried, as you can see in the video my nails really look like I have been to the salon to get some gel put on but nope its just this amazing ‘jelly’ shine polish, need to get some more of these.
