Honest About Beauty


Essence blushes are my religion, they are the absolute best and there's no denying it. The newest addition from the brand are the Metal Chrome Blushes. They have 3 different shades available and I cannot wait to get my hands on the other two. Today I will be reviewing 30 the beauty and the bronze, which is the darkest shade Essence Cosmetics released. Let's have a look! 

Essence Cosmetics revamped their entire lipstick range and added 20 new shades to their permanent makeup collection of 2017: the Essence Ultra Last Instant Colour Lipsticks. Essence lipsticks have always been a passion of mine. Ever since they released their Longlasting Lipsticks back in 2014, I've pretty much purchased every single one the brand has ever created. The formula of their lipsticks is truly outstanding and there was no way I was going to miss out on this new collection.

I'm not a doctor, nor am I a psychiatrist, herbalist or therapist, but I do know first hand what depression and anxiety can do to your mind and to your body, as I've been a long time sufferer and survivor. Tea is a part of my self care routine, my natural medicine to stress, anxiety, mood swings and years ago my go-to home remedy to actually quit smoking and choose for a healthier lifestyle. I recently looked at my anxie-tea stash and realised they actually serve a big purpose in my life, so I wanted to share with you my favorite herbal teas to beat anxiety. 

I think we can all agree that wearing an enormous amount of highlighter is the trend of 2017. About every cosmetics brand, on the planet, made it their goal to have the most outstanding highlighter product in their makeup line - in the hopes that it will take over every beauty lovers' social media feed. I love a good glow, something subtle that brings shape, dimension and lights up the highest points of my face. I'm not into a super shimmery look, highlighting for me is about taking your makeup to the next level without looking like a disco ball. Essence Cosmetics recently released the Make Me Glow Liquid Highlighter as part of their 2017 Fall/ Winter collection. Let's have a look!

This Summer I declined 3 wedding invitations, 2 of which I was actually excited to go to. Social anxiety got the best of me once again and even though I'm relieved I didn't go, because I don't think I would have been able to practise the amount of appropriate self care, I'm also a bit sad. When I first got the invitations I was very nervous but as time passed that slowly turned into a tiny little bit of excitement. About 2 months before the 'save the dates' I received an Instagram DM from one of the other guests, and my brain decided to go completely haywire - I wasn't going to go anymore.
