πŸ’„πŸ‘› WHATS NEW IN MY MAKEUP BAG πŸ‘›πŸ’„

Hi Everyone

Hope you all doing great. I am currently on Day 3 of my leave and loving it. Since i don’t have to be at work i’m getting so much (blog) work done. I have planned the whole of April already and going to start with May soon.

I will still be doing some of my favourite blog topics eg: Makeup/Mascara/Mask/Manicure Monday, some newbies Currently Testing and Tried & Tested which are linked, Fragrance and Foundation Fridays and a brand new topic which you will be on Friday. If there are any topics, themes or ideas you would like me to do, please feel free to drop me a comment below

Today i’ll be chatting about 4 new items that made their way into my makeup bag. From an eyeshadow trio, to a fragrance, a lipbalm and a nail polish

 

WET N WILD: Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio in the colour Silent Treatment consists of 3 shades, two of which are very neutral. A light peach shade for the browbone, the eyelid shade is a unique colour, taupe with hints of lavender and grey and lastly the crease shade which is a dark plumy brown colour with flecks of gold glitter. If you not a glitter person, don’t be hesitant to try this, as it hardly transfers onto the skin (as seen above). These shades are smooth and buttery, easy to blend and have great pigmentation

From & How Much:Β  Clicks – R79.95

*** Clicks is currently running a 3 for 2 on all Wet n Wild products until 08April at selected stores

 

ESSIE: Nail Polish

This Essie nail polish in the colour Mamba is a opaque creme peachy nude shade and in the sunlight if you turn the bottle slightly you can see a pinky lilac shimmer which doesn’t show on the nail once painted. To get full coverage i had to do about 3 coats.

From & How Much:Β  Clicks (R139.99) and Dis-Chem (R92.95)

*** Dis-Chem are have dropped their prices of the nail polishes from R129/139 to under R100 each

 

MINISO: Fresh & Moist Lip Balm

Miniso’s Fresh & Moist Lip Balms in the shade Cherry is a just like buying a labello or lipice lip balm with the formual but looks like a lipstick tube. It adds a slight colour to the lips (depends how many times you apply) When testing it, it gave moisture but tends to dry within half hour to an hour depending if you are eating or drinking anything. It has a weird smell to it, not a bad smell at all, just a smell i can’t place.

From & How Much:Β  Β Miniso – R29.99

 

DKNY: Be Tempted Fragrance

DKNY Be Tempted Fragrance is another perfume added to the Apples of New York perfumes like the original Green Apple Be Delicious, Fresh Blossom (pink), Golden Delicious (gold), Red Delicious (red), Delicious Night (purple) and more….Β Be Tempted is the seductive and sexy perfume, representing a juicy red apple.

Top notes include Cassia (blackcurrant leaf), Lemon, Red Berries, Licorice and Apple
Middle notes include Rose, Violet and Orange Blossom
Base notes include Indonesia Patchouli, Vanilla and Myrrh

From & How Much:Β  Foschini sells these mini perfumes in a set of 3 with the original Be Delicious and Fresh Blossom – if i remember correctly i think it was R225/250
