New Products on My Beauty Desk - August Edition

Hi guys . Happy Monday . How was your weekend ? My weekend was pretty chill - I tested out the ? Inoar Hair Botox treatment and will be giving you guys a full review later this week. 

Today I'm sharing some new goodies on my beauty desk. This isn't everything I got - some products I kept aside for specific posts . This month I got a mixture of some new goodies to play with - I haven't had a chance to play with everything yet - but will most likely test out the rest over the next week or so. If there is anything you'd like a full review on - feel free to let me know.

So let's jump into the products.

 Milani Conceal and Perfect 2-1 Foundation and Concealer in Creamy Vanilla
When Milani SA launched I was really excited to pick up this foundation. This was the top item on my wish list to try . The foundation was pretty decently priced (At R150 ) and free delivery for August. Bargain ! I have used this foundation for a week now and I can't see myself putting it down anytime soon. The coverage is AMAZING , it's extremely long lasting and the finish is a soft matte finish without clinging onto drier spots on my skin. I'm really impressed and will do a few review really soon. 

Essence Instant Matt Make-Up Fixing Spray
I picked this up on a whim when I got some of the Essence Wake Up and Spring range I'll be reviewing soon. So far I like this setting spray - I used the Avene Eau Thermale Water but since the weather is warming up I wanted something that would help keep my make-up matte. I like how this doesn't make my skin super dry and tight after using it - and it's pretty affordable which is a HUGE bonus. 

Hean Face Contour Palette
I am in LOVE with the mauve toned blush in this palette. I can't put it down . The colour is pretty long lasting and fades nicely during the day. I haven't tried the contour shades or the darker blush - but I'm sure I will soon. This is such a gorgeous pigmented palette and definitely worth investing in. 
Lip goodies
I have 4 new lip products I'm planning to try out soon - I had a really bad food allergy so I'm just waiting for that to completely clear before I start wearing some lip products again. I picked up one of the new Revlon SPF Lip balms , an Avon Mark plumping lip gloss and some Hean Liquid Matte lippies. I'm really excited to try them out - they all seem promising . 
Catrice ICONails Gel Lacquer in Donut Worry Be Happy I will be doing a full post and wear test (I worn it a million times since getting it ) so I will keep my thoughts here short and sweet. I love the colour and I like that this polish doesn't need a million steps. Just this polish - no top coat or base coat. Wear time is also pretty decent. I will be picking up another colour or two and sharing the full post soon. 

 Hean Luxury Sugar Lip Peeling Scrub and Lip Elixir
As I mentioned , I had a horrible reaction to a food allergy and it resulted in sore lips that tend to peel. Lush lip scrubs are WAY to harsh - so I decided to pick up this combo with Glamore Cosmetics Woman's Day special. So far I''m LOVING them and will be doing a full review on both products. The scrub is super gentle yet effective and the Lip Elixir is life saving. 

How was YOUR weekend ?

  12. Wow!
    This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experience and i need to share this great testimony.
    About how i get my ex husband after a breakup.
    I never believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about it before.
    My name is Willie B. Garcia from US Florida
    I'm so excited sharing this testimony here about how I got my ex husband back after a long time break up that almost led to a divorce all thanks to Dr Ahmed for his wonderful help. Am a woman who love and cherish my husband more than any other thing you can imagine on earth. My husband was so lovely and caring after 3 years of marriage he was seriously ill and the doctor confirm and said he has a kidney infection that he needed a kidney donor, that was how I start searching for who can help, doctor has given me a periodic hour that he will live just 24 hours left, that was how I ask the doctor if I can be of help to my husband that was how he carried out the text, the confirming was successful, I was now having this taught that since 3 years now we got married I have not be able to get pregnant, can I ever get pregnant again? That was the question I ask the doctor, he never answer his response was did you want to lost your husband? I immediately reply no I can't afford to lose him. After the operation my husband came back to live and was healthy I was also ok with the instruction given to me by the doctor, after 3 months my husband came home with another lady telling me, that is our new wife that will give us kids and take care for us, that was how I was confused and started crying all day, that was how my husband ran away with his new wife cleanable. Since then I was confuse don't know what to do that was how I went back to the doctor and tell him everything, he told me that, this is not just ordinary, it must be a spiritual problem that was how he gave me this Email: that I should tell he all my problem that he can help, that was how I contacted he and I do as instructed. After 22 hours and I have done what he ask me to do, my husband start searching for me and went back to the doctor, that was how he came back to me, he also told me not to worry that I will get pregnant, this month making it ten Months I contacted he, and am now having a baby of nine months and 2 weeks old all thanks to Dr Ahmed for his help that is why I have put it as a must for me to spread the news about Dr Ahmed is a place to resolve marriage/relationship problems?
