      I tried that but they cancelled my order after I put it through and said it was out of stock which was a bit annoying!

    I was hoping to be enabled before my trip to Clicks this afternoon, but I see I already have most of these products. 😀 (Mostly thanks to All Dolled Up…)

      Well I’m glad that for once we helped you “save” some money! 😉

        Thanks a mil!!!! Just bought the NYX cream brûlée butter gloss yesterday and the la girl bb cream! Loving them both!!! Really wanna try some of these you mentioned that you were wearing ! Your makeup looks amazing !!!!

        Have you see the Mac colour mehr? We don’t get it in SA but it’s worth trying out when you travel!


  • Mera

    Yay i loved this video <3 Iv always wanted to look for the LA girl BB cream or the concealers but can't find it anywhere!

    • Jules (author)

      Yup, it’s tricky! Persevere though because I couldn’t find it for a couple of months and stumbled across it again in store last week so you never know

  • Dis-Chem

    Hi Jules, sorry for the disappointment. We’d like to assist if you still want to buy the LA Girl BB Cream online. Which shade do you use?

    • Jules (author)

      I actually found my shade in store a few weeks later so the problem has been solved. I appreciate you getting in touch though! 🙂

  • Hanneri

    Loved the video and would love you to do more. Can’t wait to get my hands on the Nyx butter glosses. Definitely going to try the Maybelline gel liner now that my Bobbi Brown one is drying. Max factor false lash mascara is going to replace my Estée Lauder one. The only thing I don’t like is that the mascaras are not sealed. Finally: I have been searching for the Revlon skinlights forever and have not seen a bottle in any of the stores where I have looked 🙁

    • Jules (author)

      We’ve heard this from a few people which is so strange! Maybe they’re having stock issues. Keep your eyes peeled in Dischem though, I often see Skinlights there.

  • Carla

    Hi Jules,

    Looking back at the video…flawless makeup as usual. I got the Skinlights Illuminators in the bargain bins at Dischem for R55.
    Please do a similar bath and body video
