Since my last encounter with an irregular green by Revlon, Spanish Moss ($16.95), I've been gaining more interest in irregular greens, especially the ones with dusty-grey tones.

Last Sunday, as I was prancing around at the markets, I happened to cross a lovely lady who was selling sooooo many essie nail polishes. And so, I hauled home essie Fall In Line, a dusty-green with military vibes.

Fall In Line ($16.95) was featured in this year's fall collection, in June/July. Not sure if you could get your hands on em anymore... limited edition, aha.  (⌒_⌒;)

Took me two coats to hit opacity, which is the norm, really.

It's nice, but I can't imagine myself wearing it again.. especially since us Aussies have stepped into Spring! Time to rock them cute yellows, and warming corals! Kekeke. (*/∇\*)

What do you think? 

So many assessments to do, I'm sooooooooooooo stressed! Hopefully I'll get pass them soon. I've many ideas for posts, but I just don't have time to photograph... ヽ(゚Д゚)ノ

NEW ON COUNTER (SEP 2015): essence, Covergirl, Maybelline, Bourjois, Ulta3

A little late this month!

Things have not been the greatest for me. You know, when you wake up and things just change so drastically -- yeah, that has been happening, again. But yeah, it's cool.

Slowly getting through things...

There's not many new products this month, but there are quite a few Spring/Summer collections! I'll start off with products from August.. ^_^

COVERGIRL Full Lash Bloom Mascara ($17.95/available in Black and Black Waterproof)
A mascara with a mousse formula that accentuates the natural shape and length of lashes. The mousse formula is supposed to "prevent stiffness", and the brush "combs and coats for even, full coverage".

COVERGIRL Ready Set Gorgeous Concealer ($11.95/2 shades)
An oil free concealer that covers skin imperfections and brightens dark circles.

COVERGIRL Eye Shadow Quad ($14.95/5 quads)
Feels like every brand is hoping onto these neutral-brown quads, lol. Same with Covergirl. There are 5 different quads, but this neutral-brown quad is the only photo I have of the range, meep.

So I was looking through Maybelline's list of products, and there are SO many products I've missed out on since July, but I haven't heard much about them in the beauty blogosphere? Let me know if you've heard of them!
I've never seen these products in ma life, lol

  • Baby Lips Candy Wow ($6.95/4 shades): A range of lip glosses to keep the lips fresh and hydrated.
  • Color Show Dr. Rescue Nail Care Range ($6.95): Their nail care range, I believe. But I've never seen these on their stands, and they were supposed to be on shelf since two months ago? Waaaaaaa? Have I been out of the blogosphere for that long, that they've discontinued it? Tell me guys!
  • Color Sensational Rebel Bloom Lip Color ($16.95/10 shades): Not sure if this is a new collection, or what. New shades?

As for August releases... I'm sure you've seen these around!

  • Master Sculpt Contouring Palette ($19.95/3 shades), a 2-in-1 palette featuring a matte contouring powder and a cream, pearl highlighter. 
  • Eye Studio Moltens Duos ($13.95/6 shades), a high-pigment, gel powder texture eyeshadow.
  • Instant Pore Eraser ($15.95), a pigment-free formulated primer that smooths appearance of the skin and minimise and refine pores.
  • Brow Satin Duo ($16.95/3 shades), a dual-ended brow pencil.

I think the nail polishes by Ulta3 are pretty cute. LOVE the packaging! Besides that, I'm really keen on the cuticle stickers by essence's Love & Sound collection, and that gradient blush. I have one from their previous Beach Cruiser collection, Summer Break, so I'm looking forward to collect this one too!
