I recently had the worst hair trim of my life (how you stuff that up I don’t know?) but I needed a nice conditioner to tide me over until I can get my next haircut. The pink packaging was probably the catalyst for choosing this Palmolive conditioner (the Intensive Moisture Conditioner for Dry Hair) I had seen the Face of Australia Cleansing Oil around on social media and blogs, and even though mineral oil is the main ingredient and I’m nervous about using it, I was too intrigued to pass up an opportunity to try it out for myself.
Some supermarket goodies that I wanted to include was the new Palmolive Fig and Coconut Hand Sanitiser (just realised that I bought two Palmolive products in a month, I don’t think I’ve ever used their stuff before!) and a travel can of the Rexona for men deodorant.
Seeing Models Prefer come out with new products always makes me excited, and when it’s a blush? Stop the press! I bought only one shade of the new Stick Blush, in the shade Love which is the brightest one and looks matte in the tube, but actually has some kinda chunky glitter hidden in there. I also bought the Rimmel Blush in Tuscany after seeing that it was half price – as if I need any more neutral blushes!
Speaking of things I don’t need more of…pink lip products!
I knew I had to pick up one of the new L’Oreal Extraordinaire lip products and the shade Fuschia Drama called out to me the most. I also added my first Revlon Matte Balm into my collection with the bright pink shade Showy – I’m still trying to get the hang of this and think my lips need TLC before I try it out again.
The Models Prefer Nude Eyeshadow palette has 10 shades and I’ve not had another powder shadow on my lids since I bought it. Some of the shades need improvement, but most are above what I expected for a mere $12.99 so I’m all aboard this train! I prefer these shades much more than those in the darker palette (which has a grey/black/blue kind of vibe instead) Most of the time I’ve been wearing the Australis Cray for Colour Eye Stick in Soiling the Fun underneath those, but for the past few days I’ve been all about wearing it by itself with a good swipe of chocolate liner and a neutral blush. It’s seriously good stuff and the colour is amazing, but without a primer it does crease on me quite quickly so be sure to prime the lids, ladies!
Mister Bovary and I went out tie shopping at Uni Hill Brand Junction over the weekend (the joys of wedding planning, amiright?) and I didn’t need an excuse to pop into the cosmetics discount store there. I picked up the essence coral camo blush in 01 Ap-ri©ot from the Be Loud collection, along with the eyeshadow duo in 03 Rock the Block.
Have you picked up anything nice this month?
Are you impressed that none of the products I bought were high end? I am!
