Urban Decay, oh Urban Decay. Why is it that I am unable to leave your store without buying something? It has caused me to avoid that area of Sandton like the plague! Alas, you have now moved next to Woolworths, and your reach is inescapable. Quick Fix Hydra-Charged Complexion Prep Priming Spray 118ml – R460.00… Read More Urban Decay You’re Draining My Bank Account!
Don’t get me wrong, I really REALLY want to be a salon-products-only kinda girl, but because of my poor financial planning and shopaholic tendencies, that’s just not going to happen. In comes John Frieda, and his range of affordable hair care. I have tried John Frieda products in the past, and have neither loved nor… Read More John Frieda’s Doing it Right!
If I could buy an Essence item every time I walk past their stand in Clicks or Dischem, I’d be a happy girl (and more often than not I actually do end up buying something, so I’m pretty content). Essence is an amazing, cruelty-free brand that stocks some of my all-time favourite items, like my… Read More Essence Purchases and Review
Who doesn’t want long, luscious, thick, beautiful lashes? Boys, that’s who. Because those ungrateful creatures already have them. But as for the rest of us, there’s mascara, mascara primer, false lashes, tinting, extensions and lash serums that all aid in looking less mole rat and more Disney princess. Here are my issues with the above… Read More GrandeLash-MD
L.A. Girl was one of those brands that I associated with the frighteningly cheap, non-descript, bulk makeup at Dischem. You know the palettes of 50 eyeshadows for R50? Or the strange lip palettes that look like they either belong in Beauty Value? REST ASSURED, the only thing L.A. Girl’s cosmetics have in common with those… Read More L.A. Girl Cosmetics Purchases and Review
Late last year, and into the beginning of 2018, Colourpop was having a massive site-wide sale. I’m quite apprehensive about purchasing online, let alone from an international store (because customs), but this time, the temptation was too much and I went wild! Colourpop is an online American makeup supplier. Their products are cruelty-free and in… Read More Colourpop Haulin’: My New Guilty Pleasure
BurgundBeautyZA. Between her simplistic, clean-cut flatlays, her down-right frank product reviews and her incredible commitment and consistency, I can’t actually pick what I love most about Simran’s Instagram account. As one of the first people I followed after starting my blog, Simran’s stunning page is one that I will always hold in high regard. In… Read More One on One: BurgundyBeautyZA
Where on earth is this year going? It seems that 2018 is speeding by and not much can slow it down. Before I know it, another Monthly Must-haves is due. March was a bit of a blur, but it did see me getting a new dog, a new coffee machine and of course, a lot… Read More Where’d You Go March?
Once upon a time, a terrible, terrible thing happened to me. It left me ashamed and scarred, unable to face my friends and family. I was 60 shades darker on the skin spectrum, and smelled vaguely of burned biscuits and coconut. Yes… I had a tanning disaster. It all started during the December of 2015.… Read More My Name is Megan and I Had a Tanning Disaster
Welcome to a new segment on Perilously Pale! Save vs Splurge is going to be a regular piece on my blog, and it stems from my awful habit of spending exorbitant amounts of money on makeup. Sometimes (okay more often than I’d like to admit) I spend HUGE amounts of money on beauty splurges, and… Read More Chanel’s Base vs Catrice’s Serum Primer
