My Holy Grail Foundation

I just want to share this experience with you. I flew in to Johannesburg last Thursday and I wore my Estee Lauder Double Wear Camouflage Makeup to check how long it will last. I travelled by plane, train and car and also walked the streets of Hatfield. I checked my make up when I got back to Cape Town at 11.30PM, and guess what? My makeup stayed on. It lasted for 18hrs. Most foundation that I have tried before tend to leave an oily residue after hours of using it and also feel heavy on the face---like wearing a mask. Now the Double Wear Foundation doesn't do that. It also gave me the coverage that I need. I have pimple marks and large pores and what it did was hid my stubborn marks and it didn't make my pores noticeable. It is one foundation that I would absolutely recommend. It's truly the HG of all foundation. Great coverage, longetivity and love that it gives a smooth finish and it's not cakey. Also found the color that matches my skin tone perfectly. Get a sample at the counter and see for yourself. Love love love it!

A Glamorous Affair with Estee Lauder

I had such a fantastic time with the Estee Lauder team today. I went there for my consultation and it was everything I expected it to be and more. I learned more about Estee Lauder's products and what it can do to my skin. My Beauty Advisor for the day, Tamzy, did an excellent job explaining their skin care products to me.

Tamzy didn't waste any time in working her magic. She removed my makeup with the Take It Away makeup remover which left my skin feeling clean in an instant. She then used the Perfectly Clean Fresh Balancing Lotion, which controls the oily zones and soothes the dry areas of the skin. My skin felt refreshed after using it. Then, she applied one of the best products I have ever tried, the Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher which fights enlarged pores, flakiness and roughness. This product is ideal for my skin because of the pores that I have. It made my skin feel so soft and supple even before applying the Time Zone Line and Wrinkle Reducing Moisturiser(SPF 15). This moisturiser helps to dramatically reduce the look of lines and wrinkles. My skin felt great after doing this whole skin care routine. It really makes a HUGE difference when you use the right product that suits your skin.

It didn't end with that. She helped find the PERFECT foundation for me. I fell in love with the Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup. It matches my skin tone perfectly and it covers all the imperfections that I have.Will do a review about it soon. She also used the Double Wear Mineral Rich Loose Makeup to set everything in place. I love the Double Wear range, it gives me the coverage that I want and it also last for 15 hours which is just great. She then did my eye makeup and applied blush on my face. My makeup looked so natural, just the look that I was going for.

I had so much fun learning about Estee Lauder's products and I can say that they truly are one of the best in the market. The products that I tried felt so amazing and made so much difference. I can't wait to share with you my love for their products.

Thank you, Estee Lauder, for helping women like me feel more comfortable with our skin and thank you for bringing out the best in us :)

Estee Lauder South Africa Glamour Girl Finalist

I am so happy to have been chosen as one of the 10 finalists for the Estee Lauder Glamour Girl competition. I have always loved the brand and still can't believe that I'm one step closer to my dream of helping women learn more about their products and what products could work best with their skin so that they can feel and look good about themselves.

I don't have the perfect skin. I am your average girl. I have blemishes and my skin also tends to go dry and flaky. But I always try to do something about it. And with a little bit of research and trying out products, it continues to help me combat my skin issues, thus giving me an air of confidence. Hopefully, I will be able to encourage real women who have skin problems to come out of their shells and be able to help them feel comfortable with their skin by introducing products that could help improve their skin condition.

I have been doing beauty reviews in the past and I have truly enjoyed it. That's why I was so psyched when I heard about this competition. It will be such a joy to be able to reach out to other women who need beauty advices every now and then. 

It would mean the world to me if you can support me in this. You can check it out by following these links: or

Even if I don't win, I would still be truly honored to be a part of this competition.
