I am really enjoying these New in Beauty posts and videos, only downside is they make the FOMO so real 🙈. Today I am sharing with you some of the goodies I picked up during the month of February (and a little before that, that I forgot to share last month). There is two items I am particular excited to test and try, but let me get on with showing you what I got.
New in beauty – February 2020
I love shopping for new makeup goodies and I shop best by reading and scrolling through my Instagram feed. I have so many photos saved of product I want to pick up and try and feature on the blog, but my cupboard and more importantly, my budget can not keep up. But these goodies got the green light with the “budget committee” 😁
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Lip Protectant
This is the newest limited edition 8 hour range and I fell in love with the packaging. I could not wait for it to arrive in SA to pick these up. The colours are so beautiful and I am sure I will go back and pick up the third shade which is the peachy shade. I could not wait to start using them so as they are here in the picture I have used both and I have some thoughts but I will keep all these thoughts for a future post. All I can tell you is go get yourself if not all three, then at least one of these. They are really really really good!
Benefit Roller Lash
The Benefit Roller Lash Mascara has been one of my favourite mascaras for as long as I can remember. I love the shape of the wand and I mean its Benefit! You cannot go wrong with a Benefit mascara. I bought the mini as I have so many mascaras in use but I felt nostalgic when Lizna from Absolutely Life visited and we each picked up one of these mascaras. A while back I did a post on if I could only pick one item from a category which would it be and I picked this is my mascara. Check that post out here. I still stand by that post and would pick Benefit Roller Lash Mascara again and again.
Benefit Gimme Brow
Together with the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara we also picked up the Benefit Gimme Brow and I am ecstatic to have this in my collection. It is so easy for just add a bit of colour to your brows and on lazy days this is all I wear with a bit of mascara and a lip oil or from now on the lip protectant as mentioned above. Its such a staple product that I am quite surprised that it took me this long to pick one up.
Miyo Five Points Palette
You will find a few of these palettes in my collection and I love every single one! If purple is your jam then you would love this palette. There is a good pinky shade that is matte that you can use a few different ways and a highlighting shade with a neutral shade and then the purples… I love me a good purple palette. If using purple eyeshadow for an everyday, toned down look is something you would want to see a video on, then let me know in the comments below.
Pierre Rene Pinch Me Palette
This has been on my wish list since I heard that Gael from Glamore Cosmetics were going to import this palette. It has got everything! From a matte black shadow to darken looks to duo-chrome right through to neutral as well as shades that will push your boundaries. I am totally in love and this is the second item I could not wait to tuck in before I took photos. The Pierre Rene range is really great quality and I look forward playing with this palette to create all kinds of pretty looks.
