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