New Foschini For Beauty Online Store + GIVEAWAY


There’s a new online store in town, ladies!  If you follow me on social media (Twitter here and Facebook here), then you probably already know Foschini recently launched their beauty online store.  I was so excited when I received the news, I immediately hopped on to my social media platforms to share this exciting news with you!

As most of you know, I am a HUGE online shopping fiend – being able to shop in your PJs while sipping on a cup of java is the best feeling ever.  Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy heading to the shops every now and again to swatch makeup products, and sniff the latest & greatest fragrances…but with so many great beauty blogs out there lately, it’s easy to look up swatch photographs online to decide if a particular foundation, concealer or eyeshadow might be suitable for your skintone.  I rely heavily on good ol’ google for reviews and swatches before I do a spot of online shopping – how about you?

Anyway, so like I said Foschini recently launched their beauty online store – and here are 3 reasons why I LOVE this particular online store for my makeup shopping (they also stock body care, hair care, nail care, and beauty tools):


♥  They constantly have amazing promotions running – every week there are at least 5 to 10 active promos on their website. I’ve listed a couple of my current favourite promotions below, but you can click here to check out the entire list.


♥  If a specific product is out of stock online, you can use Foschini’s stock tracker to check availability of the product at a store nearest to you. All you have to do is go to the product page of the item you want to check stock for, click on the ‘Check Store Stock’ button, and then enter your city, suburb or shopping mall.  A list of available stores will appear for you to choose from – you can find all the store details for the particular store by clicking on the ‘Store Details’ drop down.  You are ALSO able choose to be notified via email when the item is back in stock online (I often opt for the option).  Just click on the ‘Email Me When Available’ button on the product page and enter your email address in the box provided (don’t worry, they won’t spam you).  You’ll be notified as soon as the item is back in stock again.

♥  If you work long hours or you are unable to sign for your delivery, then you can choose to collect your order from a Pargo Pick-up Point. Pargo provides a convenient alternative delivery solution offering Foschini online shoppers over 400 pick-up points across South Africa.  The best part?  Some pick-up points are even accessible 24/7, so if you aren’t able to receive a delivery at home or work, you can choose to collect your order from a local shop or petrol station, when it suits you best.  How clever!  For more information on this service, click here.

Here are a couple of additional things I think you need to know about the Foschini For Beauty online store:

♦  Delivery is FREE if your order value is over R500,00 – otherwise courier delivery will cost R50,00 (the same goes for the Pargo delivery option explained above).

♦  Delivery takes place within 3 to 5 working days (I’ve already placed 2 orders, and both times my order arrived within 3 days).

♦  Payment options include Visa, Mastercard (credit and debit cards), as well as your store accounts card.


The first time I placed an online order, I purchased the following products:

Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in the shade ‘Rose’ (R370,00) – I am LOVING this lightweight luminous priming base!   It gives your complexion a very natural glow and corrects your skin tone ever so slightly (it contains tiny shimmer particles that add a radiance).  I purchased the lightest shade in the range (which is more cool-toned than the other 2), it’s super hydrating (but not oily), and gives my complexion that ‘lit from within’ look.  What I also love about this is that you can apply alone (after your moisturiser), or as a makeup primer before your foundation, or you can even mix it in with your foundation.

iEnvy Eyelash Glue Remover (R89,95) – This stuff is magic!  It dissolves lash adhesive in record speed with a fine-tip brush, ensuring you can re-use your lashes time and time again.

iEnvy Au Naturale 02 Eyelashes (R99,95) – I’ve never used KISS iEnvy false lashes (I’ve always been an Eylure girl), so I decided to bag these wispy lashes.  The lashes graduate in length from short to long towards the outer corners, creating a natural cat-eye effect.  It also features a clear band which makes it perfect for beginners.

My order was over R500,00 and so I received FREE delivery.


A couple of weeks ago Foschini sent me a R500,00 voucher (plus 2 additional vouchers to give away in today’s blog post), here’s what I ordered with my 500 bucks:

Clarins Instant Concealer in Shade 1 (R325,00) – I haven’t started using this concealer, but I’ve heard (and read) great things!  It corrects and conceals dark circles, whilst smoothing fine lines and minor imperfections.  I have really bad under eye circles, so I’m always on the hunt for an amazing concealer.  I’ll let you know how I get along with this concealer once I’ve used it for a while.

Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Foundation Primer (R465,00) – This is 1 of my top 3 makeup primers!  I featured it in this monthly favourites blog post, and this annual favourites blog post – I’ve been using this primer since 2014 and it is definitely one of those products that I keep repurchasing (which is saying a lot because I own way too many makeup primers).  It blurs pores while mattifying shine and controlling oil.  It really does smoothen fine lines, texture and pores leaving the perfect canvas for your foundation.

Did you know?  The Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Foundation Primer is an Allure Best of Beauty winner.

For this order, because my total was R790,00 and I had a voucher for the value of R500,00 – I did have to pay the R50,00 delivery fee because after deducting the voucher amount, my new total was R290,00.


And next on my ‘To Buy’ list, is the new Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup Foundation – I’m keen to do a review video on it!

The online store stocks so many amazing makeup and beauty brands such as Smashbox, Dr. Brandt, Elizabeth Arden, Lancôme, Neutrogena (check out their latest skincare range here), OGX, Real Techniques, REN Skincare, Skin Nutrition, and many more!


So, I organised 2 x Foschini gift vouchers worth R500,00 each for a GIVEAWAY.  I want to keep this as simple as possible, so there’s no Rafflecopter widget for this giveaway.  To enter, all you have to do is complete your chosen entries below.  Please make sure you read the giveaway rules, there’s one specific line item that you need to take note of.

♥  Leave a comment below telling me what you would spend your R500,00 voucher on in the Foschini For Beauty online store.  This entry option is mandatory, to ensure I have a way to contact the 2 winners (so make sure the email address you enter when you comment, is the correct email address).

For EXTRA entries:

♥  Retweet my giveaway tweet OR tweet about the giveaway: “We are celebrating the new Foschini beauty online store with @pinkpeoniesblog – 2 x R500 vouchers are up for grabs!”

♥  Share this blog post with your friends on Facebook by linking back this blog post and tagging @PinkPeoniesBlog.

Please remember: You don’t HAVE to do all of the above – if you’d only like to leave a comment below, then your entry will still be valid.  The other ones are there so that you can gain more entries for the giveaway.


♥  This giveaway is open to South African residents only.

♥  There might be a R50,00 delivery fee involved, IF your order total is less than R500,00.  Thus, if you order items to the value of R530,00 then your new order total (after using the voucher code) will be R30,00.  This means your new order total is less than R500,00 – thus you will have to pay R50,00 for delivery.  It’s very important that you take note of this before you enter the giveaway.

♥  If you are 1 of the winners, your order total has to be R500,00 or more than R500,00 in order for the voucher code to work.

♥  The giveaway will run until 11:59pm on Monday, 24 October 2016, with 2 winners being selected at random shortly afterwards.  I always announce the winners of my giveaways on Facebook and Twitter, so make sure you follow me on both social media platforms.

♥  If no reply has been received 7 days from the initial winner announcement, another winner will be randomly selected.

♥  Please only enter the giveaway if you don’t mind paying the R50,00 delivery fee.

Good luck!

P.S. Massive thank you to Foschini for providing the prizes for this giveaway!

UPDATE: And the winners are: Nabeela and Nicky Good!  Congratulations, ladies – I’ll be in touch with you shortly to arrange delivery of your vouchers!

    OMW Luzanne, your giveaways become more epic by the day 😀

    I’ve been eyeing the Smashbox Shape Matters Palette for some time now but the steep R1000+ price tag is depressing – a R500 voucher would definitely help matters! (I’m even happy settling for the R995 Photo Matte Palette, okie??)

    Much Love x

  85. Shannin 18 October 2016 / 05:49

    Awesome post as always. If I won I would likely purchase the Smashbox primer you mentioned as I haven’t found a primer that really helps control shine, and I’d also like to get a Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge. I’ve been loving the Foschini online store…been waiting for ages for them to do this as the nearest big mall is 2hrs drive from where I live.

  86. Sophia 18 October 2016 / 08:16

    I would buy that Estee Lauder foundation that i have been eyeing for months but could not get, as its certainly not cheap. But heard only great things about. So yeah that would be one thing less of my makeup Christmas wish list :) :) :)

  87. Sabrina 18 October 2016 / 09:19

    Great giveaway. I would definitely buy perfume.

  88. Jessica 18 October 2016 / 09:24

    For sure the Real Techniques make up brushes!! I am obsessed with them… that will most def be my purchase! Would be awesome to win one of these vouchers!

  89. Kathy 18 October 2016 / 09:25

    I would buy the


    and the

    Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Foundation Primer

  90. Sindi Sampson 18 October 2016 / 09:26

    If I won, I would definitely go abit SmashBox crazy. I’ve been dying to get my hands on their primer after reading the amazing reviews. I would love to win this giveaway just basically to up my makeup game.

  91. Caryn Step 18 October 2016 / 09:27

    After using Clinique products for many years, I’ve just moved over to Clarins recently, and I’m loving it. I would definitely use the voucher to buy a few more items from their awesome skincare range.

  92. Amy Daniels 18 October 2016 / 09:34

    Would love to try the maybelline products out never tried them out before

  93. Abigail 18 October 2016 / 09:35

    I would spend my voucher on re-purchasing the Smashbox Primer ( LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!) water so I can also score that deluxe size primer on their special. And also pick a few more of those kiss lashes. They give me life!!! EEeeeek I am so stoked about Foschini going online. I practically live in their stores.

  94. Andiswa Sonwabe 18 October 2016 / 09:51


    I would spend the voucher on my mom actually. Her birthday is coming and she’s fiiiinally retiring and I know ol’girl wants to look amazing for her retirement party at work so I’d get her something beautiful to wear for old times sake.

    Not promising I won’t spend it on some Urban Decay though!

  95. Shaheeda Petersen 18 October 2016 / 10:01

    Ooh what a great giveaway! I would put the voucher to good use by ordering the Smashbox Full Exposure Eyeshadow palette. I’ve been eyeing it for so long but the price is over my budget (R995 ouch!). The voucher would put it in a more reasonable range so I could get it right now instead of waiting till my birthday next year. Lol :)

  96. Yvonne Herbst 18 October 2016 / 10:06

    I would buy Neutrogena’s Brown / Black waterproof mascara. Or Clinique, or Dior, Estee Lauder, any one of these in a waterproof Brown / Black or Blackened Brown really. I can’t see all the products listed online that I see in store. The Online store also only features black options. I used to be quite happy with L’oreal, but this has apparently since been discontinued. I don’t see why I should pay more for an inferior product. The brown waterproof options are normally difficult to find. I realise that a lighter brown might be more difficult to make waterproof than a darker brown. Or perhaps it was just my experience. I feel very strongly about a mascara promoted as waterproof when it is actually ‘smudge proof’. Ofcourse, for lack of finding it on the website and in store, I am willing to drive to any outlet that sells these products. Ladies, perhaps you can be of assistance? I prefer doing all my shopping at one central point, however if the store no longer caters for my needs I have very little choice as I am pale in complexion and my facial hair being light I simply can’t wear black during the day like a teenager. I wonder if they use these online facilities often? I also tend to frown upon my mascara running in summer. As for that point, during rainy winter days too. I do like to workout, go to the beach and swim every so often. I find that whether I do these activities or not, Waterproof seems to suit my needs best. We all know that us hormonal ladies tend to sweat more from time to time, and especially during the summer months I think this is a staple essential for every woman.

  97. Micaela 18 October 2016 / 10:14

    Oh this is so exciting! Would definitely get the Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Foundation Primer. I haven’t used a primer before and have been DYING to try one out! P.S. Thank you for your blogs, I find them so informative and always check your reviews before buying a new product xoxo

  98. Carmen 18 October 2016 / 10:19

    I would the Revlon Photoready Primer, Shadow & Sparkle in metropolitan, the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Rosewine, the Rimmel Brow This Way Sculpting Kit and the Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Go Extreme Mascara…if there is change best believe I will buy nail polish lol #lovethisgiveaway #pickme lol

  99. Olivia 18 October 2016 / 10:23

    This is such an amazing giveaway! I would love that Estee Lauder foundation, eyeing it for a long time now! Or maybe towards a fragrance, which is a staple for me in my beauty cabinet, or perhaps some gorgeous summer season neutral eyeshadow palettes!! So These three items are on my list if I had this voucher! And it is my Birthday month too!! some spoils like these would be nice:-)

  100. Theresa Eduardo 18 October 2016 / 10:49

    Wow what an awesome giveaway. Wish my voucher I would purchase the Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base & the Clarind Instant Concealer to conceal my dark circles! I’d also consider the Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Stick Radiant Makeup Foundation which I’ve heard great things about!

  101. Fathima Zahra 18 October 2016 / 10:58

    Amazing! I would spend my voucher on some Real Techniques makeup brushes.. Im new to makeup so still in the process of collecting the essentials! 😀

  102. Precious Thiane 18 October 2016 / 11:04

    Me being a makeup fanatic, I’d spend my R500, 00 voucher on the Yardley Loose Powder (Caramelized), iEnvy So Wispy 03 Eyelashes, Maybelline Brow Satin Gel Pen and finally the Real Techniques Stippling Brush. My total would then amount to R549. 8, if i,m correct this means no delivery fee for meeeeeee!!!

  103. Darlene Marrimuthu 18 October 2016 / 11:10

    I would love to get my hands on some more real techniques brushes! The Blush brush, expert face brush, powder brush and miracle complexion sponge are at the top of my wishlist right now.

  104. Natasha Stanton 18 October 2016 / 11:12

    I would love to win this Foschini For Beauty online store voucher because I am in desperate need of new mascara and I would love to try the Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base. Your review on it sounds like something that I am looking for. I love the lit from within look rather than covering up my face completely with a thick foundation. This sounds like the perfect summer must have!

  105. Andrea Wentzel 18 October 2016 / 11:22

    I would use the voucher to purchase some Real Techniques brushes!

  106. Vanessa 18 October 2016 / 11:38

    Definitely on a good base as I don’t have one, and then a few odds and sods, whatever R500 can buy, however if they sell the BeautyBlender that would be 1st Prize for me… I have a concealer with which I could use it, as per your tutorials always so informative z,

    I would probably buy some l’oreal or maybelline products(like the fit me concealer, infallible matte foundation and primer , the list definitely goes on) to get the free gift. I’m just glad that more South African stores are launching online stores so that we can experience the ease of online shopping with duties or import tax

    I’m ready for my voucher, and my first makeup purchase

  136. Mahmooda Martin 24 October 2016 / 15:03

    I am super obsessed with Yardley beauty products and I will most certainly spend the R500 buying Yardley lipsticks. I also would love to spoil myself since I am currently writing matric exams and am under a lot of stress therefore some new Yardley lippies will do good to my stress levels.

  137. Tracy 24 October 2016 / 20:09

    Hi Luzanne! Thank you so much for organising this giveaway. Just this weekend I decided it was time to step up my makeup game (my eyeshadows are about four years old and I don’t even OWN foundation!) and I discovered your blog, went back in the archives to your Affordable Makeup Starter Kit post, and started compiling a list! With this voucher I’d buy my first ever primer (probably the Maybelline baby skin as you previously recommended), and some foundation – that Estee Lauder one looks amaze! With the remainder I’ll invest in some new eyeshadows. Thanks for a lovely blog and such informative YouTube videos, definitely going to make use of your tutorials from now on <3

  138. Adele 24 October 2016 / 21:54

    Awesome give away! My mascara is running dry so definitely my trusty Loreal False Lash Superstar ( makes my lashes so dramatic) and also my Loreal Infallible 24h Foundation. Then maby a nail polish/ lipstick so that I can grab that nice free gift to the value of R1380!

    Thanks for the review, this will make my live so much easier!

  139. Vanessa 25 October 2016 / 21:58

    Amazing giveaway as ALWAYS, Mt Anniversary and Birthday Month and no luck at winning any awesome products such as there you are giving away! Been very busy with an amazing cause would love a spoil now, fabulous re view and products in yor give-away! Are these competitions only for beauty bloggers and not beauty product lovers as I have noticed it’s always the same entrants?

    I would.ld really love a Beauty Blender! Since watching tutorials they seem like magic little wands and that’s what I would use a voucher towards. I know they’ve been on the market for a while however what’s the use of good products, and not being able to dpply them correctly
