JayZ has launched his first ever fragrance called Gold. According to Donald J. Loftus, the President of Parlux Ltd., the fragrance licensee for JayZ’s fragrance, he rejected 3200 possible names for his fragrance. Finally he picked up the bottle and said “This is the sh*t, it’s gold!”. I can’t wait to smell Jay’s swag.

MAC cosmetics are now available online in SA, you can shop on the web or on a mobile device. So now you can stock up on all your favourite beauty goodies from the comfort of your couch. I love the novelty of being able to try on different shades at the make up counter but the great thing about the online store is that I won’t need to go to the actual store to stock up on my favourite shades, yay!

I just wanted to share my current favourite shades with you below. Candy Yum Yum, Please Me & Velvet Teddy are my favourite matte finishes and Lush Life is a mineralize rich lipstick, it’s lovely on my lips. I want to try So Chaud & Diva, which are also matte finishes.

Just the other day Riri’s MAC collection was hitting the stores here in SA, I actually went to the store in Sandton City and found literally nothing left (by nothing I mean the good colours were gone). I think it’s safe to say that her collection has been a hit.

Well we can get excited again because Rihanna is going to release a third collection with MAC Cosmetics, yay! The third collection is going to include red lippie and red nail polish. I am really hoping that she can also include some Candy Yum Yum like colours, something bright & fun. Well it’s only a matter of time before it hits our shores, so don’t say I didn’t tell you!

The more I learned about the company’s values, guiding principles, and commitment to quality, the more I realized that Neutrogena is so much more than your average beauty company. I knew I wanted to be a part of a company that is helping to make a difference in people’s lives. As a creative consultant, I will be able to have a real voice inside this amazing company, which is a tremendously exciting endeavour.”
