I have been digging the Lust Have It! (Australia) November 2012 box! I’ve been able to use every item, so this one gets a thumbs up.
Review of the Beauty Samples
ModelCo Fibre Lashxtend MascaraRRP AUD$28
I’m a sucker for thickening and lengthening mascaras, because my eyelashes are short and not terribly thick. And being a monolidder with oily skin means mascaras that don’t transfer to give me “panda eyes” is a priority. The normal stuff just doesn’t cut it.
ModelCo Fibre Lashxtend Mascara claims it “combines lash fibres with a rich, glossy mascara to give a false lash effect from every angle”. I wouldn’t go so far to say it turns my natural lashes into full falsies, but its fibre technology definitely lengthens. It also lasts at least 6 hours without transferring onto my eyelids and when it does, it is a minimal faint shadow.
The tube also features an inbuilt mirror, just like their ModelCo Shine Ultra lipgloss.
Sasy N Savy Floral SpraysRRP AUD$33 (125ml)
It is a scented mist made with essential, natural oils to revive and refresh you. Lightly spritz around the face and body for a natural alternative to perfume. I’m not too keen on the scent itself, but found I like the scent intensity level of the spray and its application.
GKMBJ Soothing and Nourishing Shampoo & Soothing Honey Moisturising ConditionerRRP AUD$19.95 each (280ml)
New haircare range is developed, tested and proven by qualified hairdressers, focusing on using highest quality ingredients, like natural essences, provitamin B5 for optimal performance.
Orly Flash Dry DropsRRP AUD$19.95 (18ml)
I have been neglecting my nails of late due to a lack of time. Who wants to spend 20 mins unable to use one’s hands while waiting for several coats of polish to dry properly? These high-shine drops on freshly lacquered nails are supposed to accelerate drying time and deliver glossy nails, a big plus for the time-starved.
Orly also included a $50 off $200 spend on smartGELS at www.orlybeauty.com.au. Valid till 15 January 2013. Orly‘s smartGELS is supposed to help you create a salon quality gel polish range that recreates professional manicure results in less than 20 minutes and lasts for up to three weeks. The system includes a starter kit, an LED light with a timer for an extra fast cure, and 12 smartGELS gel colours.
Star&Rose Hologram TweezerRRP AUD$9.95
These hologram tweezers are full size (which really means they are still tiny and perfect for travelling) and came in a dark blue, almost black with pink based hologram floral pattern. They are cute and feel comfortable in the hand.
