New On My Beauty Desk - May

Hi guys ! How was your weekend ? Did you watch the Royal Wedding on Saturday ? I was working but I did catch the highlights after work . 

Today I will be sharing some new goodies that I'm currently testing out. There is a lot more than the goodies I'm sharing here - but I'm keeping all of those for separate product review posts pretty soon. As always some products I might have tested once or twice - some I will be trying in the next week or so to report back on. 

Justine Tissue Oil Multipurpose Moisture Balm
This is a convenient on-the-go dry skin remedy balm formulated with the power of Justine's famous tissue oil to address any dry skin emergencies. I like the idea of a multi use product I can pop into my bag and use as a lip-balm / cuticle balm on the go. The container is quite big - and a little does go a long way so I'm really excited to start using it as I love the Justine Tissue Oil range.
Revlon Kiss Balm SPF20 in Tropical Coconut
I have the Fresh Strawberry scent one already and loved it - but since that one does leave a bit of a colour stain I wanted something more clear to just throw into my bag for any touch ups on the go. I love that it has sun protection - since my lips do get burnt easily . And it smells magical. I'm on a bit of a coconut scent goodies kick the last few weeks too . 
Essence Kiss the Mermaid Lipstick
I was swatching this in Dischem with Alex - and he was amazed at the range of colour changing lippies. I got the Kiss MY Mermaid Lipstick - a blue lipstick that changes from blue to pink on your lips and leaves the prettiest stain on your lips. I got this as a Mother's Day gift from him - and super excited to wear this after the swatch was amazingly gorgeous (and lasted forever on my hand ) . 

Hean Luxery Lipstick in Smoke Nude 
I have mentioned my love for Hean products before . I got the Hean Luxery Lipstick in Smoke Nude. This is a gorgeous darker nude with a peachy undertone. This will look perfect for the colder months and I already know the Hean formula products doesn't irritate my lips - so very excited to rock this lippy. You can get it from Glamore Cosmetics  HERE

Essence Highlighting Powder in 01 Let It Glow
I'm a huge fan of the Essence singles products to click into my palette. Once one of my eyeshadow shades in my palette was finished I decided to rather get another highlighter instead to make it more of a travel friendly palette. This is a nice golden toned highlighter ( I personally prefer more of a champagne tone on my skin tone ) but it looks amazing with some more dramatic make-up. 
Avon True Ultra Volume Lash Magnify Mascara in Blackest Black
Avon send me this stunning mascara to try out. I like the look of the brush and usually love Avon mascara formula's - so I'm very excited to try this out. I will be doing a full review on the blog soon. 

Essence Holo Wow! Dewy Lip Shine in 01 Unicorn Powder
I only noticed the name now as I was typing - which suddenly makes me love this lipgloss 100 times more. This is a translucent lipgloss with a holographic effect. The colour will apply amazingly on any colour lipstick - but I chose this for an on the go brighten up my look lipgloss. It's amazingly sparkly and so pretty . The range has a few colour choices too - from a purple to a blue to an orange and a green. 

Essence Tropical Hand Mousse 
This was another product I got for Mother's Day from Alex . This is a foamy hand mousse that hydrates the skin deeply . The formula is infused with monoi oil and aloe Vera to moisturise hands without leaving it feeling greasy. 
Essence Glow To Go Setting Spray
I was super excited when I saw this in Dischem . Sadly ... I have tried it out a few times and was left a little disappointed  .  This setting spray does an amazing job of setting your make-up and making you look fresh and glowly - but the downside is it is filled with little glitter pieces that end up all over your face and clothes. 
The Ordinary Coverage Foundation in 1.0 N Very Fair
I read so many rave reviews about this foundation that I was extremely keen to try it ( I ordered the Huda Beauty Foundation too ... which I will get one day once customs is done taking their sweet time ) and ordered it from Cult Beauty when they offered free worldwide shipping. It got to me within four days (which is amazing since some local companies take forever to deliver ) . This foundation leaves my skin looking healthy - I did expect it to be a little more full coverage - but it's a pretty good foundation and I'm very happy with it. Especially since it was SUPER affordable too. I will be doing a full review on this foundation too.
