If you follow me on Snapchat and Instagram you’ll know I was recently gifted a beautiful box of makeup by Zaron cosmetics. I did live unboxing and swatches on both channels. In it were goodies ranging from oil control loose powder (different shades) to XD Face Definer (a palette of highlight/Contour/Bronzer), 2 Healthy Glow foundation, Cream-to-powder foundation (my recent fav), Single/Duo/Trio Eyeshadow Palettes, plus Global Warming Eyeshadow + Blush Duo palette, Hyper Blush in Siren, Eyebrow definer (2), brush sets, makeup remover wipes, a cute red makeup bag, plus lipsticks, lipglosses, mascara…and a fooooooooooood voucher! 😭. I was amazed. Mind = Blown! I’m still tryingRead More →

It’s 4:27am, I’m laying in bed…downloading the series Billions, listening to Lady Gaga’s Joanne album and thinking about how I don’t want to ‘adult’ again 😌 This is not your run-of-the-mill post… I’ll be a year older in a few months, I’m in that age bracket where you’re young but not so young that responsibilities are pulling up so high. When I say responsibilities I also mean expectations from yourself, family and society.  I’m at this conflicting stage where you want to go do something crazy, carefree, travel whenever you feel like because YOLO (right?) but you can only wish. Why? BILLS! BILLS! BILLS! TheRead More →

Hello!  I decided to splurge on makeup a few days ago (if you follow me on Snapchat- ZUWILLIAMS & Instagram- MAKETOPIAOFFICIEL, you must’ve seen the live unboxing 😁) and I’ve never been happier; even though my account balance will beg to differ 😢, welcome to the world of a makeup addict 😭.  This will be a 2 part article because I honestly can’t do justice in one post! I got the Makeup Revolution Ultra Pro Glow palette, BH Cosmetics Sculpt & Blend 2&3 brushe sets+ Smokey eye palette,SMASHBOX Primer set, Colourpop Cosmetics lipstick sets in Up & Away + Blues Baby, et al.  Today I’llRead More →

I’m a huge fan of affordable makeup brands and if you’re worth your salt you should know BH Cosmetics.  Not long ago they introduced the Wild & Radiant Baked Illuminating & Bronzing Pallete  I recently just joined the Glow enthusiasts and had to cop this from TheDFstore    It’s a set of 4 bronzers (read “Highlighters”) with awesome pigmentation. Wasn’t really psyched that the Shades weren’t named ?       I said Highlighters because IMO, Bronzers (which are placed in areas that you’re to contour) are meant to be all shades of dark & preferably not as shiny as this pallet.  As a dark-skinned person, thisRead More →

As I have previously established: I am a lazy girl when it comes to doing my own makeup and I love buying sets (Default-Economist-Setting) – it’s always cheaper to buy in bulk and who doesn’t love variety?!; Decided I wanted to get an array of NYX jumbo pencils.  Luckily thedfstore.com stocked up and whilst I was rummaging through the site, couldn’t pass up the offer! Almost everyone, in fact everyone who loves makeup knows about NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk but hardly about the rest and frankly, yall missing out! First of all, it came in in a very pretty package, the black lace pouchRead More →
