New Beauty Alerts

Here on the blog I'm adding a new chapter called New Beauty Alerts. If you are well acquainted with blogging, or have a general idea of what it's about you'll know that there can be perks to the work bloggers put into their blogs. One of these is being gifted products that P/R Companies send out to bloggers to test and possibly talk about. Since being back in Australia I had quite a few beauty bits waiting at my door and after testing them out, I was more then excited to let you all know whats new in the beauty realm. 

Killer Queen's Spring Reign By Katy Perry*: I'm not usually one to be drawn to celebrity fragrances in the past, but upon trying Katy Perry's new spring fragrance, I made sure to be very open minded. Spring Reign is the fourth fragrance to be released in Perry's line of perfumes and is definitely fresh and fruity, with notes of pink freesia. I was actually quite pleasantly surprised and have really been enjoying the scent for everyday use. Plus the bottle looks amazing on your vanity and would make a great present for any Katy Perry fan. 

PoutyLipzz*: I am no stranger to lip plumping products and have noticed a difference when using them in the past so I was eager to give this one a go when I was sent it in England. The way that you are supposed to use this is to apply it three times a day for 29 days to ensure maximum affect. I have been using this everyday with a few days missing here and there but have definitely noticed a plumpness to my lips- it isn't anything drastic but enough to make my small lips that much more noticeable. Plus, it keeps my lips extra hydrated. 
Rimmel Apocalips Matte Lip Velvet*: It seems that matte finishes have taken over, and glossy finishes are a thing of the past(for now). Rimmel have caught on to this with their four new Apocalips shades. They apply in a mousse-like texture that quickly sets to a velvety matte finish. The shade that I got to try is Atomic Rose, which is a lovely nude shade. If your after an inexpensive matte range then definitely check out the new range which is now at Priceline, here in Australia. It has pretty decent lasting power as well!

Rimmel Velvet Matte Nail*: Along with their new matte lip range, Rimmel have also brought out four new matte nail polishes in the most opulent shades of the season. I have become a real fan of matte finishes as of late, so I was extra excited to try their new grey shade Velvet Touch. 
Rimmel Idol Eyes Kate Moss Mascara*: Lastly from Rimmel, and one I'm most excited to tell you about is the new Kate Moss mascara that has been released here in Australia. The brush on this wand makes for the most quick and easy application that I've ever encountered. I usually spend quite a while trying to distribute product evenly onto the lashes but this mascara really does do all the work for you, especially if you are strapped for time. However, the only downfall is that it isn't the most water resistant, so just be mindful of that. Although definitely one of my new favourite drugstore mascaras as of late!

Have any of you tried these products? let me know in the comments!

  2. I'm also wary when it comes to celebrity perfumes, because they don't usually last very long. But I still l love trying them out, because of the packaging lol

  3. I also have Rimmel Apocalips Matte Velvet in Atomic Rose and love the shade and the formula. Not drying at all for a matte product. Really good! :) x

  4. I love that nail polish color! I just read that grey matte nail polish is becoming very popular and I'm glad I think it looks great! That Katy Perry perfume bottle is amazing looking, but I don't really go for celebrity perfume either. I'm not sure why though!

  5. I'm still yet to try the Rimmel Kate mascara! I've been so fascinated by the brush aswell. Sucks that you say it isn't water resistant because I need waterproof mascaras so I'm a little worried ee!

  7. I really like the Rimmel Apocalips however i do prefer their provocalips products because of longevity. This mascara sounds so nice but since i already have with my current products so often problems with smudging i guess i will have to pass on that one. I think this new feature of yours is a great idea. I always love to hear what is new.

  8. The Matte Velvet lipstick looks amazing, I love liquid lipsticks and I prefer matte over glossy! Rimmel does have great lipliners and lipsticks so I'm sure this formula will also be great!

  29. Yeah! I really enjoy the mascara but if I'm laughing to much and my eyes start to water it can be a bit messy! Its great otherwise and it'd be perfect if they made a waterproof alternative!

  41. The idol eyes mascara's brush looks so weird I thought it would make the application process a huge mess so I am pleasantly surprised to read I am wrong. Would love to give this a go when my current mascaras will be good to go.
