New goodies that will sparkle your pants off

18 Mar

Friday. 12:00pm. For some reason, I had my heart set on getting a sparkly eyeshadow. I think it’s because I saw the new L’Oreal Paris Infalliable eye shadows in Shop Til You Drop. Off I headed to Priceline, and as soon as I walked into Priceline I spied the new Gucci Westman for Revlon collection… MY OH MY! The Revlon Expressionists Collection for Fall 2011 is a collaboration with Revlon Global Artistic Director Gucci Westman. The 17 piece-collection introduces the new Revlon Diamond Lust Eyeshadows. For some reason Australia is only getting this now?? It was a Fall 2011 collection. WEIRD. Here’s some of the products from the collection.

I challenge anyone to walk past that display and not be captivated by the sparkly goodness. So then I went to work swatching. Here’s what I got…

The Revlon Diamond Lust eye shadow in 110 Starry Pink. If you know me, you know I have a current obsession with pink glitter, and this does not disappoint! It has glitter pay off ahoy and the colour is gorrrrgeous. Oh and it was down to $15.96 from AU$19.95. WIN.

The Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 025 Sky Line Pink (AU$21.95), which will most certainly become my new favourite nude lipstick… it’s a really light pink with a pearlescent shimmer in it. So pretty, and so in keeping with the pink sparkle obsession. I think I may layer this over a nude lippy thou… it packs a pearly shimmer.

The new Face of Australia Barbados nail enamel collection has hit shelves… and Priceline had 20% off Face of Australia. So I picked up ‘Bright Lights, Pink City’ and ‘Orange You Glad You Came?’ for the neat price of AU$3.96 each. These are such summery pastel colours and they have a pearl shimmer through them which gives them a point of difference.

I also just grabbed a Batiste Brunette Dry Shampoo (AU$7.99)… an absolute must have. Oh and heads up, they must have changed the design on the can to this ugly retro pattern sometime ago. I was confuzzled. It says NEW… but I think they’ve just redone the packaging. Not a fan Batiste… hire a new graphic designer.

Oh and just quickly… I want to show you my new wool cardigan (how nanna of me). It’s super cute and I foresee it becoming a winter staple. It will just layer so well with other things (i.e. clothes LOL). It’s from Sportsgirl.

It looks better on. 😛

I also have some new Benefit goodies that have just arrived but I will save them for another post or else this will go on forever. 🙂
Alright I’m off to go dance to this song… Snoop Dogg’s Drop It Like It’s Hot. The boy asks me “Why do you listen to this music?” AHHHHUMMMM is he kidding? With lyrics like “so don’t change the dizzle, turn it up a little, I got a living room full of fine dime brizzles. Waiting on the Pizzle, the Dizzle and the Shizzle. G’s to the bizzack, now ladies here we gizmo”  who wouldn’t, fo shizzle?

    I have cardigan envy. Theres one In Peter Alexander I am eying off…. Also that purple glittery nail polish looks pretty amazing.

      Peter Alexander do some awesome cardigans hey? For some reason I don’t think Australia got the purple glitter one… only a blue glitter one. Which is pretty awesome in its own right.

    I can’t live without my Batiste Dry Shampoo – it adds volume and refreshes the hair when you just don’t have the energy to wash it, perfect for a Monday morning. But I agree on the design – I much preferred the fabulous leopard print design.

      I know! It’s tops one of my “can’t live without” beauty items. It’s great for 2nd/3rd day hair!
