Shahnaz Loves Beauty

I never realised that there were so many amazing beauty brands available in SA. I literally came across an instagram account called Makeupbowtique and realised that so many of the brands I love are available here. I have been ordering through friends and then waiting to get my products so happy days when I realised there are a few people Joburg based that have eveything I want. If you are a lover of makeup like me and are desperate to get your hands on Anastatia Beverely Hills, Tarte, Huda beauty, Morphe brushes and more. Its finally all available here without all the awful duties we normally get hit with.


Makeupbowtique literally have every brand that I absolutely love. Sadly there is no website but the instagram account has picctures of eveything they stock. I tested it out last week and ordered 2 blush palettes from morphe that I have been obsessing over. They are so affordable at R450 each with 9 beautiful shades per palette its a bargain. The quality is absolutely stunning and it literally took 3 days to get to me once the payment clears the products are shipped. I was really impressed with the service and will definitely be shopping again. Check out the instagram account that features all the products on offer I literally want them all. If you are looking to invest in a new eyeshadow palette this is definitely the way to go with the morphe palettes costing R650 with 35 shades to choose from per palette you can’t go wrong here.



The Little Blaqboutique also based in Joburg has an array of amazing brands like BH Cosmetics, LA Girl Pro Coverage Foundation, Becca, Morphe Rose Gold brushes, Nars and more. In the past when you watch a makeup tutorial you literally couldn’t get your hands on these US products and now they are at our fingertips. They don’t feature as many products as makeup boutique but there are some gorgeous choices. I am super keen to test out the LA Girl pro Coverage foundation after watching Desi Perkins┬átesting out on one of her video’s . Charlotte Tilbury will be available soon so very exciting.

Finally there is more choice available than the usual main brands. We have already seen Urban Decay hitting SA shores and I just can’t wait till its available in Cape Town. So ladies you either need to get busy saving or out together your Christmas wish lists as there is so much makeup to choose from. I know I will be passing my list on to my hubbie.

Happy Shopping.
