#FlashbackFriday A Few Of My Favourite Things (Revisit)

Read the original post here.

I really like these #FlashbackFriday posts; it makes me assess what products are really tried and true. That's valuable information especially when you realise how long it takes to use these beauty products up. Sigh.

rms beauty lip & skin balm 'simply vanilla' 

The best lip balm I've tried ever.


Maybelline Master Hi-Light By FaceStudio Hi-Lighting Blush 'Mauve'

The most suitable blush shade from this line for black women.


CoverGirl LashBlast Volume 'Black'

Defines and volumizes; just be careful not to poke yourself in the eye.


M.A.C Cremesheen Lipstick 'Creme In Your Coffee'

I think this was the first M.A.C lipstick I ever bought and I still love it to this day. A gorgeous nude for black women.


Orly 'Rage'

Metallic rose gold awesomeness.


REN Clean Skincare Invisible Pores Detox Mask

Clay is a very cheap ingredient so I wouldn't suggest paying an exorbitant price for a clay mask. With that said, you still have to be mindful of potentially harmful additives that these companies add to clay masks to make you think they're working; yuh know, that tingling sensation. This one from REN is the gentlest yet most effective one I've ever tried.


Berkley Jensen Premium 100% Pure Cotton Rounds

The best ones readily available locally that I've tried.


NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 'Transylvania'

You already know that we love these.


NYX Lip Liner 'Plum'

My second most abused lip liner. First in line is L.A. Colors 'Sienna'.

M.A.C Shiny Pretty Things Haul

In the most tardy local M.A.C Holiday release ever, Shiny Pretty Things was made available when the new store finally opened in The Colonnade Mall on December 3rd.


From YouTube chatter, it seemed like the eyeshadow singles and the Extra Dimension Skinfinish 'Snowflushed' were the hot ticket items. 'Snowflushed' is supposedly a big pan of 'Stylishly Merry'. To me, those thing were definitely mesmerizing to look at but the lip glasses were the unexpected stunners.


At this point, M.A.C items in limited edition packaging are collector's pieces. Right? Right. I was more looking at what would make great gifts.

T - B: 'Scarcely Seen', 'Rosebuddy' and 'Caketop'
Of course I had to get a bullet lipstick...

Matte Metallic 'Straight Fire'
The matte bright fuchsia 'Both Cheeks' looked gorgeous too but we all know I barely wear pink lipstick.


Just like the Nutcracker Sweet Collection they also released sets of minis. They claim these…

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser

Usually I do these cleanser reviews when I've used the product for a while. Typically a little before half the product is gone. Well...


...this is almost done. I was using this in the shower and yuh know, time just got away.
From the Beautylish site:
