I always love to discover new makeup brands and am pretty much dreaming of new ones to hit SA so when retail box mailed me to let me know about their competition and new makeup on their site I was really excited. Coming from London where I have access to so much it can be frustrating that there aren’t a huge amount of makeup brands so am so excited that The Balm Cosmetics has launched here and its a big range.
Its a quirky fun makeup brand from the US, its a combination of Benefit and Two Faced with a little something extra and I love that its a cruelty free brand. I got my hands on two items from the range the Autobalm Face Palette which you see below, its got a little bit of everything so perfect for touch ups when you are out and about and the quality is really nice and retailing at R289 you really can’t go wrong here.
Next up the Mary-Lou Minizer a super pretty gold/honey highlighter that looks really pretty on adding the gorgeous glow to the skin which I personally love. Infused with Mica that diffuses the light making the skin look softer with a subtle glow. Its got a really great texture and is in such a pretty compact you can just pop into your bag and off you go. This bad boy retails at R385 its a bit more costly but its one of those products that will probably last you a while.
The rest of the range consists of foundations, concealer, blushes, bronzes and so much more. I had a good look at what’s on offer and have already compiled my wish list. The Nude Dude palette looks amazing as well as the apple cheeks and lips palette I definitely need these in my life.
