You'll see the difference, though. Just...better!”

Our make-up bags, like our wardrobes are often over-flowing with every imaginable product on the market. Because as soon as we enter a shop, it is like walking into a candy store, and you know what they say about kids in a candy store, you simply need to have it all.
After all we are women and make-up and fashion is our addiction, so yes we want and of course need all the latest must have make -up products.
So to fuel your addiction here is the latest Make-Up must haves!!
With any addiction there is a down side, you love make -up, you love wearing it, but hate the hassle of removing it. Well here is a simple but yet brilliant solution for you. The Makeup Eraser, a microfiber cloth that not only removes all make -up but, wait for it, also exfoliates!
What more can you ask for in a pretty pink microfiber cloth.
After having tried it, I believe that this is Simply a mastermind creation, as it removed all my make-up even the stubborn bits. No make -up remover required as all I needed was the cloth and water and viola I was left with clean glowing skin.
I am sure that like me you use up a whole bottle of make-up remover in one month and need to buy a new bottle. But with the Makeup Eraser you will save money as you can use it for over a 1000 washes which should last you longer than one month. It is also a great, make-up must have, for sensitive skin beauty junkies, in the heat and has no fragrance or alcohol ingredients that is harmful to sensitive skin.
Because all you need is the microfiber cloth and water. Simply Genius!!!

Must have number 3 is defiantly a product to have, because we spend hours on achieving the perfect brow. So if you have had tweezer after tweezer to achieve the perfect brows. You will love, Rubis Tweezers a favourite of make-up artist like Bobbi Brown, who described it as “the Ferrari of tweezers”.
Rubis tweezers are a Swiss Brand. So you can be sure that it is design at its finest. Each tweezer is hand crafted with perfect tips to remove even the shortest of hair. It is made of resilient, antacid stainless steel and can be sterilized in acid or boiling water.
I agree with Bobbi Brown, I loved the tweezers. It is a great tweezer, it is nice and sharp. Easy to use and grabbed even my shorter hair strands, which are usually a pain to pluck. Best of all it came in my favorite color RED! After using it I got rid of all my other tweezers for the best in Swiss Design.

If your make-up is on point and you are looking good, you got to smell fabulous. So the last must have is something, that comes in the hottest color on the fashion scene, Rose Gold.
Monsoon Rose Gold is an Eau De Perfume, for the chic sophisticated lady. The perfume itself is rose gold and comes in a cute tear drop shaped bottle with a rose tinted cap and lid and is packaged in a white box with rose gold details.
Featuring top notes of sparkling lemon, soft fruit and ozonic, for a clean, fresh scent combined with rose, tuberose neroli and cyclamen, giving the fragrance a deeper, more floral scent. With base notes of Eastern woods, vanilla, mosses, musk and balsamic amber, leaving you with a soft, musky and powdery scent.
I love the packaging, as it gave off a chic feel, and the bonus was obviously, that the perfume itself was Rose Gold. And I love musky fragrances because it is so sensual. So if you want to express your sensuality and be chic and sophisticated at the same time, Monsoon Rose Gold is the fragrance for you.
