NEW ON COUNTER (MAY 2016): Rimmel London, Natio, Bobbi Brown, MAC, Clinique, Sally Hansen

Yesssuuu, we've stepped into the month of May. It's almost mid-year again, damn.

On a brighter note, it's my birthday this month! Yay! Well, not the whole entire month, but soon! I've never been so excited for my birthday before, lol. I'm just coming to appreciate that I'll be surrounded by the loves of my life this year around!

My sister and I got into a car accident two weeks ago, didn't think I could make it to my own birthday really, lol. We were driving, and in a collision, we went straight for the pole! My life flashed before my eyes. I'm still SO traumatized by the experience, I get so paranoid when someone else drives me around, but I'm glad to report that I'm physically OK!

Eh, anyways. Nothing else really new with me. Same same -- collecting D pics on my phone (by D pics, I mean dog pics btw. If you've thought of anything else, you are a naughty little girl/boy!), exploring the world of halal snack packs (yum!), and.... catching up on uni assessments!

I hope you've all been well!

RIMMEL LONDON Colour Precise Eyeliner ($13.95/3 shades)
A pigmented and long-lasting liquid eyeliner. Supposed to be quick-drying, flake-proof and easy to use for its soft, tapered felt-tip applicator.

RIMMEL LONDON Volume Colourist Mascara ($18.95)
Ummmm, okay. So... new claims for a mascara product... First time ever reading a mascara claiming to "progressively blacken bare lashes over time" for its semi-permanent lash tint complex.... Ummm? But besides that, jet-black pigmentation, volumising and offers instant "impactful lashes"... huh?

 BOBBI BROWN Face & Body Bronzing Powder ($72/2 shades)
This is a limited edition product! Yes, it's for both the face AND body. Buildable coverage, as described by Bobbi Brown. No other info on this..... Thanks BB.

 BOBBI BROWN Nourishing Lip Color Oil-Infused Shine ($44/16 shades)
I was a bit scared off by the name of this product, lol. The impression I had was that it's gonna be oilyyyyyy on the lips, but I read wrong. The formula combines 5 natural oils, hence the name. So do expect it to be moisturising, hydrating and condition. Says nothing about the finish, nor the lasting power.... Thanks again BB.

BOBBI BROWN Skin Nourishing Glow Foundation ($90/9 shades)
Much more detail this one, yay! It's described as a cream foundation, that helps to maintain moisturise for the upcoming winter. Emollient yet lightweight, and offers a luminous coverage. Prevents dryness. I'd assume drier skin types would make better use of this.

MAC Brows Are It Collection
Big collection, but pretty self explanatory, so brief run through only!

204 Lash Brush ($18), 208 Angled Brow Brush ($39), 219 Pencil Brush ($39), 266 Small Angle Brush ($45)

Big Brow Pencil ($32/5 shades)

Brow Duo ($42/3 shades)

Brow Set ($28)

Fluidline Brow Gel Creme ($32/3 shades)

Eye Brows ($30/3 shades)

I'm actually interested in the Eye Brows mechanical pencil. Forever trying to find a dupe for my ABH Brow Wiz.... *weeps*

SALLY HANSEN Big Kwik Dry Top Coat ($12.95)
A top coat that claims to make nail colours chip-resistant, offers high-shine and dries within seconds.

SALLY HANSEN Big Peel Off Base Coat ($12.95)
A peel off base coat, like what essence has introduced before. Extremely handy (lol, that pun?) for when you use glitter polishes! But then of course, won't be as long-lasting. Alternatively, you could also use Elmer's PVA glue ($2 at Woolworths!) as a base coat, but obviously won't be as travel-friendly.

BURBERRY Bright Glow Foundation ($86/6 shades)
I've never featured Burberry on here, but this sounded like a nice foundation! The packaging is unique, but besides that, I don't really know what this product is about, lol. It's said to offer a "radiant, lit-from-within complexion". Has SPF30+, but  I have no idea what kind of coverage, or lasting power it has... sooo.....

CLINIQUE Sweet Pots - Sugar Scrub & Lip Balm ($40/5 shades)
Clinique is coming out with quite a few new skincare products this month, but I've decided to skip it. Perhaps check their Facebook page if you're keen! Otherwise, here's a lip scrub and lip balm duo that costs an arm (lool). HOWEVER, what it offers in return, is exfoliation for your lips in 5 nice shades (or scent?). Yay?

NATIO Mineral Eyeshadow Trio ($14.95/3 shades)
Eyeshadow palettes featuring three complementary shades! Available in three different sets.

NATIO Natural Radiance Foundation ($19.95/3 shades)
Anotherrrrrrr foundation! Apparently delivers seamless coverage and nourishes the skin. Infused with a whole list of things that works to energise the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

LANCOME Juicy Shaker ($34/15 shades)
A lip gloss with a unique 'shake it' application that offers adjustable intensity with a satin shine. Brands have been coming out with these "cushion applicators" if you're wondering why the applicator looks funky. Looks like a fun product to use though.

Aaaaaaaaaand that's a wrap!

I also wanted to include some Face Of Australia products that I've received recently, but apparently those have been launched since March... which is odd, because I haven't seen them in stores yet!

However, I have been trialling out those products, so I'll post about them in a separate post!

Let me know which of these listed products got you interested!

I know, there are so many high end brands this month, but whaaaaaaat can I do! If you know of any other releases, please do share!
