Chi Chi Super BB Cream in Light

For a while now I’ve been on the hunt for a light, everyday foundation that provides light to medium coverage but doesn’t clog up my pores. I don’t like wearing heavy makeup every day because I like to let my skin breathe, and I do like the thought of a foundation-style product that improves my […]

Review: Wet N Wild Lipsticks & Dupes

I’m getting very fidgety waiting for my MAC order to arrive from YouShop and in pining for new lipsticks I’ve rediscovered a new love for some of my others. I briefly reviewed some of these lipsticks in this post, but today I’m going to take a more in-depth look at a few of the colours. […]

As usual, New Zealand is late to the party on picking up this trend, but that’s probably because the seasons are backwards here. 90s grunge is definitely an Autumn/Winter style rather than a […]
