Drugstore Cosmetics Launches for Australia -- December 2012

Hello everybuddy! One month flew by so fast... I could still clearly remember the time when I sat compiling last month's launches... 26 days more to go and it's Christmas time!

Oh how I wished Aussie would snow for just the Christmas day (that'd be silly, but cute right?).

It's okay, let's see what Aussie brands have for us this Christmas! ^_^

Bourjois seems to be launching at least a product every month.... love that!

Bourjois 1 Second Nail Polishes -- described to have a 'gel silicone-enriched texture, with an ultra precise fan effect brush'. Its description speaks much about the application rather than the drying time, so definitely not to be mistakened as a "1 second drying nail polish"!

Available in 12 shades, RRP $12.

Next up.. Essence. Who ISN'T excited for Essence? I've never tried Essence products before (do I really need another blush or eyeliner? Nope!), but I still am excited to see their to-be released Snow White collection!

Snow White Nail Polishes -- Cutest about the nail polishes are that you will find eight bright and playful shades named after the 7 Dwarves and Snow White, with the "Snow White" nail polish being a little larger than the "7 Dwarves"! A Disney fairytale in your bag guys!

"Snow White" (7ml) RRP $3.50, "7 Dwarves" (5ml) RRP $3.25, only available at Target.

Snow White Nail Art Stickers (RRP $2.25) -- Cute nail stickers to go with them cutesy nail polishes!

Snow White Special Effects Toppers (RRP $3.95) -- Of course, you can't have a fairytale without the protagonist and the hero! These special effect toppers are available in 3 shades: 01 Evil Queen, 02 The Huntsman and 03 Prince Charming!

Snow White Nail Files (RRP $2.55) -- Nail files with a side pictured of the Evil Queen and the other side pictured with Snow White!

I really like this Essence collection. I love the names and toppers named after all characters in the movie! I might just make a purchase on an Essence product for the very first time when this collection launches instore...

L'Oreal Paris Miss Candy Collection -- is a Limited Edition Summer collection!
  • 5 new shades to add to their Infallible Eyeshadows range ($19.95)
  • 14 shades to add to their absolutely must-have Colour Riche Le Vernis [nail lacquers] ($6.95) 
  • 8 shades for the Glam Shine Miss Candy Lip Glosses ($22.95). 
Really looking forward to their Colour Riche Le Vernis nail lacquers!

Ulta3 Summer Citrus Collection -- features 5 brand spankin' new nail polishes! Bright and bolds for the remaining Summer! I've seen 'Atomic Oj' swatched and it looked great, although I was surprised that it had a matte finish!

RRP $2.00, available at selected pharmacies. 

Rimmel London ScandalEye Waterproof Kohl Kajal -- is described to be highly pigmented with a soft and creamy and long-lasting formula.. lasting up to 10 hours! The shade that I do look forward to read about is 'Nude'. I've never tried nude eye pencils... interesting!

Available in 10 shades, RRP $9.95.

And then a few products to mention that launched throughout mid to late November that I thought you will be interested in...

*Priceline launched their very own 'Beauty Essential' skincare range -- which I have no information and photos of, but you can find them instore with an introductory offer (I believe).

Last but not least, another take on BB Creams by another Aussie brand -- Innoxa! 

Innoxa describes their 5-in-1 BB Cream to be the ultimate multi-tasking foundation which balances, correct, calms and soothes whilst reducing the appearance of redness and pigmentation!

Woo! A total of four BB creams launched last month...

Have you tried any of the 4 new BB creams? Yay or nay?

  3. The Innoxa BB Cream looks very interesting! I might give it a go! (: x

  4. I saw the Loreal Miss Candy range the other day in Priceline and I was instantly drawn to the pretty pastel colours displayed. I actually want to try their new lip glosses and the turquoise eyeshadow - they look so purrty ^_^

  5. I love this post!!!! The L'Oreal range looks fantastic. I also bought one of the Rimmel liners on Monday, but haven't tried it yet as I've just been at home. I'll have to try it tomorrow for work! XO

    1. Ooooh! Amy, the Rimmel ScandalEyes kohl liners are now only $6.80 at Priceline (on sale) if you're still interested!

  6. I need that nude Rimmel pencil! The OJ Ulta3 polish looks amazing for summer and those Essence nail stickers are adorable :)

  7. I live in the US and its so weird to be reading about summer products when its winter here! d: I love that new Loreal Infallible eyeshadow though- I wonder whether they'll release it here in the U.S. in the summer as well


    1. Hi Angie!! Aw hahah! Same here, same here! Quite odd that I watch YT and see people in Fall outfits and make-up!

  8. The Bourjois nail polishes are great, although I find they don't last on me and the Rimmel eyeliners are just amazing!
