New On Counter: Lush, Maybelline, Rimmel, essence, Sally Hansen, Revlon, OPI, Australis

February is here.. And we all know that February = Valentine's Day, which is also almost here... (¬▂¬)

This post is well made for the month of V'tines -- so so so many products this month. I'm going solo this year for V'tines [again], so unfortunately, no one I can show and hint this post too.. besides myself!

Anyone else feel me there?

OPI 50 Shades Of Grey Nail Collection ($19.95/6 shades)
Their latest 50 Shades Of Grey nail collection just landed in stores [approx] a week ago, if you haven't seen em yet! Some swatches here >

Lush strikes again, with a limited edition range for V'tines, and some permanent products to stay (I believe, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong). We'll start with the L/E collection for V'tines...

Cupid's Love Soap ($6.95/100g)
A heart-shaped soap with an uplifting, fruity fragrance. Made of fresh figs, passionfruit and soya yoghurt to nourish and soften the skin.

Floating Flower Bath Bomb ($6.75)
Multi-layered bath bomb, made with jasmine and ylang-ylang!

Prince Charming Shower Gel ($9.95)
Formulated with almond oil and pomegranate juice, and is scented with organic scandalwood, geranium and grapefruit essential oils.

❹ Heart Throb Bubbleroon ($7.50)
Heart-shaped soap with a delicate, uplifting fragrance. Made of essential oils, and organic shea butter. TURNS BATH WATER BRIGHT RED! Cool!!

❺ Love Locket Bath Bomb ($8.95)
Locket-shaped bath bomb that'll fizz away to release little agar hearts in the water. Big enough for two baths!

❻ Lonely Heart Bubble Bar ($6.95)
Heart-shaped bubble bar with gold glitters (!!) that turns bath water red. Made with lemongrass oils, bergamot, jasmine and ylang ylang to keep skin soft and moisturised.

❼ The Kiss Lip Scrub ($9.95)
Sugar-based lip scrub. Formulated with caster sugar, sea salt, edible red hearts and hundreds and thousands! Sounds yum!!

❽ The Kiss Lip Gloss ($9.95)
A lip gloss that adds a pop of colours to the lips!

Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar ($6.95)
Fills bath water with pastel-coloured bubbles. Made with lavendar, neroli and essential oils.

On to other products, which aren't part of the V'tines range..

❿ Brazilant ($13.95)
A solid shampoo designed to strengthen and condition hair. Formulated with orange oil and andiroba oil, sourced from the Brazilian rainforest.

⓫ Copperhead ($13.95)
Mild, solid shampoo for coloured hair. Formulated with coffee and melted henna to add shine.

⓯ New Charity Pot Self Preserving ($14.50/95g - $32.50/240g)
Rich hand/body lotion. Gives back to small grassroots charities Lush works with. Ehhh, I won't get into too much details about this, but if you're keen, check out their official website for more information.

Holy golly, so many Lush products... Now to Maybelline!

Lots of rookies by Maybelline for this month too... *physically wilts*

❶ Dream Wonder Foundation ($21.95/8 shades)
A lightweight, liquid foundation with a natural finish. Silky and buildable, contains SPF20 and blends easily. Also comes with an easy-to-use applicator. I've looked online and the applicator looks like a... q-tip?!

❷ Master Glaze Blush Stick ($15.95/4 shades)
Stick blush, designed to deliver a dewy shine. Formulated with liquid shimmer pearls, and has a creamy formula that'll melt upon contact with the skin, for that seamless and even application!

❸ Master Hi-Light Highlighting Blush and Bronzer ($19.95/4 shades)
Multi-tonal palette. The shades are formulated with dimensional colour beads that works together to match individual complexions, whilst subtly highlighting the skin. Soft, weightless and velvety finish.

❹ Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil ($9.95/10 shades)
A chubby lip pencil that offers a bold, semi-matte finish! Less than $10... A bit unusual for a lip product by MNY, don't you think?

❺ Color Show Lip Gloss ($9.95/5 shades)
A high-shine lip gloss, with light shimmering particles and a creamy formula. Offers a high, reflective shine and a smooth, soft finish.

❻ Volum' Express Colossal Pumped Up! Mascara ($19.95/2 shades)
A volumising mascara, with a double-curved system, which means double the coats of mascara [apparently]!

Rimmel is also launching a few products. Although lesser than Lush and Maybelline, but they're just as enabling..

❶ Scandaleyes Jumbo Liquid Eyeliner ($12.95)
Another addition to the Scandaleyes collection! Labelled as Rimmel's thickest eyeliner, this felt-tip jumbo pen is suppose to offer precision and control. "Ultra-black colour and stays put for 24 hours" is the catchy claim. Also waterproof and resistant to sweat, heat and humidity. Inteeeeeeeeeresting!

❷ Scandaleyes Precision Micro Liner ($12.95)
Another interesting felt-tip, with an interesting claim such as, being "ultra-black, and tattoo-like that dries in seconds and lasts for up to 24 hours".

❸ Scandaleyes Kate Mascara ($16.95)
Last of the bunch [by Rimmel] is this mascara, first mascara designed by Kate Moss -- intensely black, with a brush shaped of a "broken heart" to deliver dramatic volume.

Two products this month!

❶ 18K Gold Cuticle Eraser ($12.95)
Renews, softens and improves the appearance of rough, parched cuticles. Features an applicator tip with a nibbed exfoliator and built-in cutitcle pusher. And you asked if it contains real gold?
Apparently so.

❷ 18K Gold Hardener ($16.95)
Goes hand-in-hand with the cuticle eraser, is this! A nail strengthener that locks in moisture. Again, contains "18-carat-gold" with this, that, and something else that protects and strengthen nails. Sixty seconds drying time, and can be worn under the nails or over, for a hint of sparkle.


❶ PhotoReady Airbrush Effect Makeup ($36.95/12 shades)
Revlon's latest liquid foundation, that offers an airbrushed look. Medium to full coverage, oil-free, fragrance-free, with SPF20!

❷ PhotoReady Prime + Anti Shine Balm ($29.95)
The packaging looks funky, huh?! It's a multi-use face balm (what the..?) and primer that can be worn alone or under make-up. Clear, lightweight formula that also minimises the appearance of pores and fine lines.

❸ PhotoReady Insta-Fix Makeup ($29.95/9 shades)
That name!!! INSTA-FIX. Does anyone else find the name a tad inappropriate for a mid-ranged brand?
Anyways, it's a lightweight stick foundation, designed to retouch skin throughout the day. Delivers coverage to problem areas for a flawless finish, with SPF20.

customer survey

I'm eye-ing Lush's Ocean Salt Self Preserving Body Scrub, Maybelline's items and Rimmel's!


  1. So much excitement!! The new Maybelline stuff is all so cool! I had no idea they were coming out with new products until we got them in at work and I was like :OOOO So excited to get my hands on a couple of the lip crayons - so weirdly (yet amazingly) cheap! The Essence Vday collection is cute if not a little tacky haha. May have to check out the blushes though!

    1. I know!!!!!! The MNY items are so oddly priced! Hahaha. Let me know how the blushers go for you!

  2. Gotta love new products! I'm interested in trying the Rimmel Micro Liner to see if it's better than the Maybelline master precise.
