Lime Crime Velvetines

It was in 2012 that Lime Crime launched their Velvetines and they became an instant online hit. Soon after that, more and more brands began to create their own liquid lipsticks and now in 2016 the trend has no desire to slow down.

Faux Kylie Jenner Lip Kits

Kylie Jenner’s makeup brand has continuously caused a social media frenzy with every launch and restock.

While I am happy to see Autumn arrive once again, it’s also a kind reminder that there are only four months left of 2016 and before 2017 is upon us and we together disappoint ourselves once again with failed resolutions.

Benefit Hoola Bronzer Dupe?

Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer is a favourite of Makeup Artist Mario Dedivanovic who often uses it as a contour powder on Kim Kardashian. Not only is it loved by Mario, it is in fact one of Benefit’s best-selling products and a cult favourite around the globe. The past few weeks I have brought to you many affordable alternatives from W7 for some exceptional high-end items that I love. Today, I bring to you another offering by W7 which seems heavily inspired by Benefit’s Hoola. W7’s Honolulu Bronzer costs only a fraction of what Benefit’s Hoola is…
