New On My Beauty Desk

Hi guys . Happy Friday - I'm still currently on holiday in Durban  - but I will be back in full swing next week with regular scheduled posts. How was your week ? I'm soaking up some sun and enjoying time on the beach before I head back home to icy Johannesburg. 

Today I will be sharing another What's New On My Beauty Desk post. I will be giving a little mini update in two weeks on some more of the products I've been testing lately and sharing my thoughts on them .

Essence My Must Have Eyeshadows I mentioned my love for the eyeshadows HERE - and I know many people don't really like these eyeshadows - but I picked up 4 new shades ( the purple one I have mentioned earlier - so it's not that new new but since I got a new palette for them I am including it ) . The four colours I picked this round is 09 Chilli Vanilli (vanilla colour ) , 14 Purple Clouds , 03 Miss Foxy Roxy and 07 /mauvie- Time ! I already hit pan while on holiday on Essence All I Need single eyeshadow. So far these are pigmented and last on my eyes all day. I know there are a few colours that are misses in this collection but so far I'm pretty impressed with these 4 too. 

Justine Smooth Velvet Cream to Powder Foundation SPF 15 (Shade Ivory )
I have tried this foundation once before leaving on vacation - and I really loved the velvet finish . I will test it out a little more once I'm back and give a full review on the foundation - but after one wear I was pretty impressed. 

Avon True Colour Flawless Cream To Powder Foundation (Shade Nude )
It's no secret that I mostly love all Avon products - I haven't tried this foundation yet - but I will in the next few days and give a full review on this too. I never use the sponges included in the compact - as I prefer my beauty sponge or make-up buffer brush for make-up application. 
Catrice Prime and Fine Professional Contouring Palette in Ashy Radiance
Okay , so I don't have a lot of Catrice products - but when I saw this recently when I was getting a few goodies from the Red Square store - I knew I wanted to try it. The contour shade is a nice cool toned colour on me - and the highlight shade is perfect for everyday wear. I don't like blinding highlights - so this set for me is perfect . 
Justine Luxe Silken Pressed Powder (Light Silk )
This powder looks and feels really luxuries . I can't wait to start using this soon. The Gold compact looks really elegant - making you feel fancy doing a touch up on the go. The mirror in the compact is also a pretty decent size.
Essence 2 in 1 Eyeshadow Primer 
This is suppose to be a cream eyeshadow colour and a primer. I have been eyeing this for quite a bit and decided to try it out since I love the Essence I love Stage eyeshadow primer. So far it's really creamy and easy to blend and makes your eyeshadow stay the day . I do still prefer the Essence I love Stage one a little bit more - but I will report back in the update and mention if I still feel that way .
Revlon Age Defying Firming and Lifting Make-Up (Shade Bare Buff )
Because it's not like I have enough foundations right ? I love Revlon foundations - and I have used this formula and done a review way back in the day - and I decided to pick this up in the Red Square sale. 
Revlon Nail Polish in 009 Copper glaze Platinum and 054 Sheer Snowflake
I will share swatches of these soon in my favourite Winter nail colours post later this month - but these are both gorgeous winter themed shades . 

Avon True Colour Perfectly Matte Lipstick in Shades Wild Cherry , Superb Wine and Red Supreme
These are all gorgeous winter shades . I will be swatching and dedicating a post to these beauties soon too. But if you follow me on Social Media I have tried a different colour in my SampleSunday series and loved it. 

So that's for all the bobs and bits - I have some new skincare on my beauty desk too that I bought at the Clicks sale - as well as an awesome Lush haul I will share on the blog soon too.
