NEW ON COUNTER (August 2015): Rimmel London, Ulta3, Maybelline, Bourjois

It's August! Woooooooooooo..... yeah, no.

We're more than half way through the year, and uni semester has just started which means exams and assessments are coming my way soon... urgh *roll eyes*

I haven't even accomplished anything yet this year!

Although lately, I feel like waking up at 6AM, and just attending class on time is an accomplishment itself.. but yeah, no. Half the year's gone, and I haven't really accomplished anything... eep.

Anyone feel me?


Sun Shimmer Self Tan Mousse ($16.95/3 shades)
Rimmel jumpin onto them tanning products, eh? Surprising. This self-tanning bronzing mousse is described to provide "an instant, even, natural-looking tan." Formulated to dry within two minutes, develop in one hour and lasts for up to seven hours. Lightweight, velvety, streak-free and blends smoothly and effortlessly.

Brow This Way Brow Sculpting Kit ($12.95 - currently on sale at Priceline, $9.71!)
Considering that the brow game has been "in" for a while now, this can be considered as a late move by Rimmel! Formulated to be long-lasting, lightweight and sit comfortably all day long.

MAYBELLINE Lash Sensational Mascara ($21.95 - currently on sale at Priceline, $15.36!)
I've not one piece of information about this besides the name and the price. However, I've seen quite a few reviews about its lengthening effect! So if you're after a length boosting mascara, check this one.


Eyebrow Felt-Tip Pen - Natural Finish ($22/3 shades)
Equipped with a discreet, semi-transparent formula, this felt-tip pen features a "precise and flawless tip" which draws perfect, smudge-free thin and thick lines, hence offering easy, yet subtle brow reshape.

Brow Pencil with built-in brush - Sourcil Precision ($18/4 shades)
Features a soft tip, this brow pencil offers a precise, comfortable application that can be easily blended! "In one stroke and a sweep of the brush, your brows will be neat, reshaped and intensified!", they said anyways.

Brow Mascara ($20/3 shades)
A brow mascara (of course, eep) with a styling, tinting and setting formula n a soft-brush mascara. Designed to tidy up and fill in your eyebrows. Instantly fixes, styles, tints and defines the brows. Lasts all day.

Eye Illuminating Pencil ($20/1 shade)
To emphasise your look, this creamy, glide-on, non-greasy formulated pencil sets to illuminates the darker areas and blurring imperfections! Lasts all day.

ULTA3 Live Life to the Matte Collection
New collection! Loving the name, hehe. We'll run through it..

Matte nail colours ($2.30/6 shades)

Five NEW matte lippy shades! ($5.95/5 shades)

And also 3 NEW Pressed Powders ($5.95/3 shades) -- mattifying, oil-absorbing, but not dehydrating.

AAAAAAAND that's it! Not many new products this month, but, can we all say that's a good thing? *whew, pats pocket*

web survey

I'm currently on the look for a new lengthening mascara (my favez got discontinued, eep), so looking at you, Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara.. except that I've heard it's hard to remove. Eep. Can't stand that.

I've also never tried a felt-tip brow product, so eye-ing you too, Bourjois Eyebrow Felt Tip Pen!

NEW ON COUNTER (July 2015): L'Oreal, Rimmel, Australis, Benefit, Bourjois, Ulta3, essence, MUD

If you follow me on other social media platforms (Instagram, Twitter), you would know that I'm currently in Taiwan, on my study tour! Do I have time to work on any posts? Nop.

But do I appreciate your support on my launch posts? Yup.

So before I flew out, I've made sure to prepare this post one month earlier! Schedule to post up as soon as the clock ticks to 1st July. Hehe. Love you'se!

BENEFIT They're Real! in Full Color
This range has always been around, with the latest addition of their Push-Up Liner, however, new shades are due to launch for both their They're Real Mascara AND Push-Up Liner.

  • They're Real Mascara in Full Color ($40/2 shades) -- Two new shades: brown and blue.
  • They're Real Push-Up Liner in Full Color ($37/3 shades) -- Three new shades: brown, blue and purple.

BOURJOIS Aqua Laque Lipsticks ($24/8 shades)
These lippies are supposed to be pigmented and deliver a wet-look finish (glossy, I assume). Lightweight formula, and will intensely moisturise the lips. 

L'OREAL PARIS Infallible Make-Up

  • Infallible Matte Foundation ($29.95/7 shades), is a liquid foundation that delivers full, matte coverage for up to 24 hours. Protects the skin from oil and sweat while maintaining coverage and absorbs excess oil and water. Water-proof, sweat-proof and steam-proof (huh?).  
  • Infallible Priming Base ($29.95), a smoothing gel primer, which smooths skin for foundation application. 

RIMMEL LONDON Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara ($17.95)
A mascara which creates long, defined, clump-free lashes. Features a micro-fibre formula and lash-catching brush which extends lashes for an instant effect.

AUSTRALIS Fierce Eyes Volumising Mascara ($10.95)
Intense lashes at your fingertips, they said. Features a volumising and moisturising formula, along with being smudge-free.

MUD MAKEUP Face & Eye Range
If you're wondering if this is the brand you've seen as you've pranced around at Woolworths, then yes! You're right! It is! They are a budget brand. I've actually tried their Matte Lip Creams* and have to say that I am quite impressed with how it feels on ma lips, so I would definitely suggest you try em' out!

Hydrating Colour Corrector (CC) Cream (2 shades/$8), Concealer (2 shades/$5)

Flawless Finish Foundation (4 shades/$6)

Pressed Powder (3 shades)

Blushers (2 shades/$5), Bronzer (1 shade/$5)

Volume Mascara (1 shade/$5)

ESSENCE Hidden Stories
Collection by essence! Lookin' mystical, but a bit out of my interest (and age, if that makes sense)... What do y'all think?

  • Lipgloss (2 shades)
  • Hair dye powders (2 shades)
  • Nail polishes (4 shades)
  • Bouncy highlighter (2 shades)
  • Broken mirror eyeshadow (3 shades)
  • Pixie dust (2 shades)
  • Mascara topper (1 shade)

Ulta3 is also on the go this month, launching a BUNCH of products.. When I was looking at the press releases, I really didn't know where to start.. lmao. Let's just start from the top of my interest list, how does that sound? :p
Blush Sticks ($6.95/4 shades)

Lip & Cheek Colours (4 shades/ $5.95)

Long Lasting Lip Colours ($5.95/4 shades)

Gel Colour Nail Lacquers ($3.95/10 shades)

And that concludes this month's launches! SoooooooooooOoOoOOOoooooOooo many products! (weeps). They happen to all be so colourful too, haha!

I'm really hoping to try Australis' latest mascara, as they've discontinued my HG Lash Extensions mascara (best lengthening fibre mascara EVER!), so hopefully the formula will be somewhat similar? Fibre? Lengthening (although it states as volumizing)? Washes off with warm water? Urgh. I'm still so bummed that they've removed it off the shelves, lol.

Let me know what you're eye-ing! No polls, as this will be scheduled to post...

Leave me a comment, you guys!
