Forever 21 has arrived in Cape Town!

Holy Grail Products for Summer

Summer is fast approaching in South Africa and when the warmer days come around, it becomes less and less possible to fully indulge in painting our faces for fear of it melting off!

The Urban Decay Naked Palette

I recently popped into House of Fraser to get the Urban Decay Naked Palette.  I decided to purchase the original Naked 1 Palette because the golden/bronze tones are more suited to my complexion. After leaving the store I immediately felt like I needed the Naked 3 palette for its pink and rose gold hues seeing as that is what has been declared “in” for spring 2014. Urban…
