Cosmetix haul

I’m sure you all saw the amazing posts on other blogs about Cindy Nel-Roberts’ amazing Pamper Party a few months ago.


Well, I was there too, and have been testing out the products I got on the day. Here are my thoughts…

Nail Art Express Dry Drops

Essence Nail Art Express Dry Drops, RRP 38.95. These clever drops dry any polish lightening fast!

Eyeshadow Base

Essence Eyeshadow Base, RRP 47.95. This is one of the best Eyeshadow bases I’ve ever tired. It keeps shadow in place all day long  – no creasing or travelling. It’s closest competitor is the Smashbox one that comes in at over 4 times the price. A real winner!

Like a First Day in Spring

Essence Like A First Day in Spring EDT 10ml, R59. This soft, delicate, floral scent is perfect for early Spring. The 10ml size is perfect to throw into your handbag.

Tan in a Can

Caribbean Tan Tan in A Can, R94.95. My favourite Caribbean Tan product gives the skin a perfect, instant bronze glow. It develops over 8 hours into a gorgeous, even tan.

Tanning Wipes

Caribbean Tan Tanning Wipes, R54.95.  These are just brilliant for travelling. The wipes come in a box of 6 and are perfect for tanning your face or body while travelling.

Made to Stay Lip Polish

Catrice Made To Stay Smoothing Lip Polish in Strawberry’s Secret, R82.95. This is a triple action lip product that delivers the colour payoff of a lipstick, the shine of a gloss and the longevity of a stain. I just adore the mid-pink hue, too!

Camouflage Cream

Catrice Camouflage Cream in Ivory, R49.95. This is a very serious concealer that will hide even the most stubborn of blemishes. The formula is thick enough to cover, but doesn’t cake or dry out the skin.
