NOTD: Valentine's Day ft. Revlon & Face Of Australia

Hey u, yeah u.

Sharing with you my thoughts on Revlon's Parfumerie Nail Polish today! My sister purchased them recently, but I've yet to post about the haul (yeah, my sister purchased it, but I shall include it was my haul -- makes sense, right?). ^_^?!

For V-tines this year, I've decided to stay away from the fancy nail art. Feeling a bit ceebs, and I've came to realise that nail art + Tram just doesn't go well together. Haaaaaaaaa.

So I've decided to go for colour and glitter co-ordinations instead. Well, not co-ordinations, but just one co-ordination. Heh.

Take a look at the pink lacquer, Revlon's Parfumerie in Powder Puff.

Applies pretty damn sheer. Had to apply four coats for a full coverage, but it's quick drying. Super glossy though, can skip top coat. Contains fine shimmers on a light pink base. This new range was made to contain individual fragrance per shade, but, um, it's quite strong. As in, you can smell its scent from touching your lips. Has a perfumery floral scent. Don't you go and sniff this straight from the bottle though!!

Now, the glitter!

I've chose Face Of Australia Lookin' For Some Hot Stuff!, from their Glitterati collection. I loveeee the look of this glitter coat over a black base, so I wasn't sure how it'll turn out over a pink base. Contains red, black and white glitter. Didn't think the black would look too nice, but it turned out okay...... I think!

Then of course, the curiousity in me wondered how well it'll look if I turned the manicure to a jelly sandwich. Whipped a coat of Powder Puff over again, but I'm not too sure how I feel about it.... LOL!

A bit messy. I've never tried jelly sandwich manicures, so I'll have to research up extensive guides next time before I try again... HAHA.

What was on your nails this V-tines guys?!

Never thought I'd get to it this late... but yes! Lush has released new products for Valentine's Day... Thought I'd share these products with you on the blog today! :P

Not a drugstore brand, but Lush isn't always overpriced. Not to mention, their products are cute, and fun to use!

  • Love Locket Bath Bomb ($8.95) 
  • Neon Love Soap ($6.95 per 100g)

  • The Kiss Tinted Lip Balm ($9.95) -- Returning favourite!

They also have gift packs..... I wantttttttttttttt.

  • Heart of Gold ($42.50) - French Kiss bubble bar, The Comforter bubble bar, Rock Star soap 100g, From Dusk til Dawn massage bar, Ro's Argan Body Conditioner 45g.

Oh my lord, the gift packs looks amazing. The packaging is sooo cute. They surely will make excellent gifts for the girlfriends. The individual products are cute too!
I've been meaning to hit up Lush to grab some products I've been looking out for (for yonks!), but I've been feeling so lazy. Can't find any other reasons to go so far, besides the need to grab Lush's Love Lettuce Mask  and maybe have a sniff of their body conditioners/shower gels :(

Has anyone tried or sniffed the Prince Charming shower gel?!

Made up of marshmallow root, vanilla and fresh pomegranate juice.... Sounds super tasty! Oh, re-freshening, I mean... >_<

Drugstore Cosmetics Launches for Australia -- February 2014

Did I tell you that "getting launch posts done on time" was on my "beauty/blogging resolutions" list for the new year? -_-"

Hmph, I promise to work harder next month! I was just sick for the past fewer days.. and I actually still feel horrible as I'm typing away.. T^T

It's not a good start to the month, but these hot, new products did brighten my days quite a bit!


FITme Shine Free Foundation Stick (10 shades/$15.95)
Probably one of the more exciting products by Maybelline this month. I know quite a few people were all eggcited over this on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. It does look very promising though!
This foundation stick offers "breathable coverage and a flawless finish". It's described to be ideal for combination to oily skin types for its anti-shine properties.

Color Sensational Bold Matte Lip Colours ($16.95/5 shades)
New lipstick range of matte finishes. Has a powderless formula (no idea what this means), and is infused with alot of random stuff to keep the lips moisturised... Actually, only a few! Haha.

Color Sensational Nude Lip Colours ($16.95/6 shades)
A new lipstick range with a soft and creamy formula. Same-same as the regular Color Sensational range, I'm assuming.

Color Show Stripped Nudes Collection ($5.95/4 shades)
No photo for this one, because I couldn't find it! It's a new nail collection though, featuring neutral tones.

Color Show Crayon Kohl Liner ($6.95/9 shades)
Such a wide shade range for pencil eyeliners. This eyeliner is described to have a cream-based formula that glides onto the lids with bold colour.

Master Smoky Shadow-Pencil ($14.95/4 shades)
A chubby eye pencil, which reminds me alot of the ones from Rimmel's ScandalEyes range, except that this has the extra smudging tool. The formula for this is described to be rich in pigments, long-wearing and waterproof. Interesting!!! But a bit pricey.

The Colossal Volum' Express Smoky Eyes Mascara ($19.95/1 shade)
Described to be a "kohl pigment mascara". I have no idea what that means. I also have no idea what it's suppose to do, because there's no other information about this other than that. However, knowing Maybelline, it's probably lash "defining, volumising, lengthening" repeated all over again. loool

Eye Studio Big Eyes Light-Catching Palette ($16.95/5 shades)
These palettes feature four colours for priming and defining the eyes. The shadows feature a soft texture and is available in five different shade combinations.

Express Remover ($9.95)
This is like some sort of new and whacky invention. It's an "instant dip-in nail polish remover". The pot features a fitted foam insert, saturated with an acetone-free formula. Think I've seen products like this before, but don't remember seeing them anymore soon after being released. Hahah.. Interesting concept though.


BYS Lip Colour Stick ($4.95/6 shades)
I THINK these are new, pretty sure they are! Seems like quite a few brands have been pushing to release their own gloss-sticks within the past fewer months. 

Foundation Primers ($9.95/4 shades)
If I can remember correctly, these were added last month... This range of primers consist of 4 different types, targeting your different needs. In my opinion, the range (or maybe the packaging, to be specific) looks so tacky. I've always felt a bit iffy about skin products from smaller brands like BYS..... Actually, any products at all. Yes, I'm being a bit biased here.. >_<


Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamels ($15.95/24 shades)
Oh my goddddddddddddddddd. The packaging of these are beautiful! So luxe! I love the packaging of these sooooo much. But anyways, described to be your ideal lacquer range, these are supposed to apply smoothly, with a flawless colour and contain irresistible fragrances. I don't care too much about the fragrance to be honest, but the SHADES AND THE PACKAGING LOOKS AMAZING!!!! The price also looks a bit out of this world (read: out of my world).

Age Defying CC Cream ($26.95/3 shades)
A colour correcting cream that targets the first signs of ageing, delivering buildable coverage. It's suppose to fight hyperpigmentation and fine lines, whilst hydrating and smoothing the skin. Contanis SPF30.

Age Defying Firming + Lifting Makeup ($39.95/a few shades)
This ageing foundation provides lifting and firming benefits. Offers flawless coverage, provides a youthful look. Formulated with some fancy things and targets all signs of aging.

Age Defying Targeted Dark Spot Cocnealer Treatment ($26.95/not sure)
A concealer that "expertly" targets and TREATS dark spots. This concealer is formulated with some fancy stuff too.

Age Defying Wrinkle Remedy Line Filler ($26.95)
Similar to a primer. You can wear this alone or under make-up. It features hyaluronic acid that fills deep lines and wrinkles.


Flamed Out Mascara ($14.95/2 shades)
Features a volume igniter brush to separate and define each lash. Has a fast setting formula, is smudge-proof and flake resistant.

Flamed Out Shadow Pencils ($9.95/6 shades)
Eye pencils that act as an eyeliner and gel shadow. Glides on the eye smoothly and is available in six shades. More of these cream-based eyeshadow pencils!!


Rimmel London ScandalEyes Rockin' Curves Mascara ($16.95)
A mascara that features a brush designed to create big, curvy lashes. The applicator twists and curves the hug the lash line, the thin tip elongates and gets to the hard-to-reach lashes, offering volume and curve. The packaging is bright-red and has a printed texture, inspired by Rimmel's ambassador Kate Moss!!!

Yeap, and that's all for this month's launches!!

I do look forward to a few of these products. Priceline is having introductory offers for a few of these newbies! I'm looking up the range of the Covergirl Flamed Out Shadow Pencils right now, hahaha.

Which of these newbies are you eyeing?!
