Create your own MAC palette

Genius idea! I have always wanted to do that. I often buy palettes and don’t end up using all of the colours in them, so this would give me a chance to choose colours that I know I will definitely use. When … Continue reading

Mani Monday – Call me princess

I literally can’t stop looking at my nails ever since I applied this nail enamel. It looked pretty in the bottle when I bought it but I had no idea how much prettier it would look on my nails! It’s a Catrice nail enamel called Call Me Princess and believe me I really do feel like I have princess nails with it on. I now need to get back to Dischem to see what other colours they have in the Crushed Crystal range.



MAC Heroine

I must admit when I saw that MAC was bringing Heroine back I didn’t really know too much about it. That might be because it isn’t a coral shade… I went to MAC in Rosebank and asked them if they had it so that I could see it firsthand and I was told they only received 3 lipsticks – 1 tester and 2 lipsticks which sold out immediately. My first question is why on earth would they only give the store 2 lipsticks to sell if this is a popular shade they brought back? I know quite a few ladies who are dying to get their hands on one. So I decided to go home and see if I could order it online, knowing full well that it could potentially be sold out online too.

I still, however, had not seen what Heroine would look like on me… One of the many wonderful things about Pinterest is you can do a search for a lipstick and almost always it immediately brings up tons of pictures with swatches of that lipstick as well as pictures of beautiful ladies who are wearing the shade. This is great because even though the purple looks quite dark on the lipstick bullet, I wasn’t too sure what it would look like on me. Well there was one picture on Pinterest of a stunning lady wearing it that had me sold and I knew that I needed this lipstick shade in my life!

She looks so gorgeous in this shade I had to get it!

I logged on to the MAC online store for South Africa and ordered Heroine immediately. Although the delivery time is quite long (more than 5 days which feels like f-o-r-e-v-e-r) it was worth the wait and I am absolutely in love with this colour! Thank you MAC for brining it back.

It finally arrived!
