Happy Shoesday Ladies!

Yesterday was a public holiday in SA, so today is basically Monday to me!

This heel is from MR P, I got it about a week or two ago, it is still available online HERE. I went a bit crazy with shoes this month, there were just so many stunning pairs available, I couldn't say no. I will show them all to you in my monthly haul post soon. To check out last months beauty haul in the meantime, click HERE.

Anyway, back to this shoe. I wore this last week for a fashion show at Terenzo, which I attended with my BF. I really love how pretty it is, and affordable, at only R180. It is surprisingly comfortable, even though it is quite high. I love that this heel can be dressed up or down, I am very happy with this buy!

Tomorrow on Shop My Stash I have an exciting item going on sale!

AVON Liner and Mascara Reviews!

Hi Ladies

I received these two AVON beauties from Beauty Bulletin. If you would like to review the newest products and bring out your inner beauty blogger, you should consider joining this online community HERE.

Avon Super Extend Liquid Liner

I usually stick to kohl liners, as I find they are easier to use and more pigmented than felt tip liners, then I met this beauty! This is so pigmented and smudge free. I love that the fine tip allows for an ultra thin and precise line, which can also be built up to a thicker line as you can see in the picture above. I have used this on both my upper lid, as well as on my water line, and both work equally well. I find that most felt tip liners have more colour on the edges than on the tip of the liner, so you have to apply it sidewards. Not with this liner! I did two different looks on my eyes, the left has more liner on the waterline, and the right has a bit more of a dramatic upper lid with a bit of a flick.

AVON Super Extend Winged Out Mascara

I love this mascara! It separates lashes and lengthens them perfectly. It is important to use an eyelash curler else your lashes look a bit flat. I curl mine before and after applying this mascara, and the effect is amazing! The spoolie is firm and hard, and the bristles are quite far apart so it does get to every single lash. I really like the formulation of this mascara, definitely one of the best AVON mascaras I have tried.

Thanks to Beauty Bulletin!

Shop My Stash- Highlighters!

The Body Shop Baked to Last Bronzer Bronze Shade- Warm Glow, this might be a dupe for MAC Soft and Gentle, I will get back to you on that. All I know is that I love it! It is a stunning powder, great for highlighting. This is way too glowy and light for a bronzer in my opinion, and it definitely works for me as a highlighter. I also like to use it to buff my skin as a final step.

Elizabeth Arden Shimmer Powder in Nude Shimmer is a very subtle highlighter, more of a natural glow on my skin. As far as I know this was a limited edition, so it is no longer available.

L’Oreal Lumi Magique Pearl Powder in Rose Boudoir  is a matte face powder, it gives the glow without the shine, if that makes sense. I am quite enjoying this, I use it as a highlighter above my cheekbones and on the bridge of my nose. The pearl shimmer is an overspray, but underneath is just as pretty. This was also a limited edition, I have however seen a couple still available at Dischem.

I am loving all of these products, so none are going to my blogsale this week. But check it out for previous additions HERE

Happy Shoesday Ladies!

The grey skies call for some grey heels... I bought these heels a very long time ago, probably a couple of years. I really like them though, the slight platform gives a good height, without being too dangerous, haha!

I love the wood type base, and the contrast of the grey leather. 

Check back tomorrow for Shop My Stash and a major fashion haul soon too!
