New and Noteworthy

Being a beauty blogger and obsessive quite a lot of new products grace my desk from week to week.  I thought I would share with you a couple of new and noteworthy products currently at On A Beauty Bender HQ.

I was generously gifted a stunning package from Sisley Paris containing an Express Flower Gel Mask and 3 Phyto-Eye Twists. I haven’t had much experience with this particular brand, so I am looking forward to giving these products a try. The packaging is classy and elegant, and immediately caught my eye. The Express Flower masks boasts a high concentration of hydrating ingredients such as lily, iris and sesame extracts. It also claims to fight any traces of fatigue and stress in three minutes and leaves the skin brighter, glowing and radiant. I am really looking forward to using this beautiful product in my next pamper session. Stay tuned for a review.  The Phyto-Eye twists are long-lasting,  water-proof eye-shadow pencils full of active botanicals. The pencils are beautifully packaged with zebra print gracing the tubes. The pencil itself is mechanical and is a  great size making it easy to grip and use. The formula is smooth and velvety and glides on with ease. They blend amazingly and seriously last forever. I first swatched them on my hand and carried on with my daily chores – washing up, vacuuming etc and I noticed the swatches were still intact on my hand while I was cooking dinner several hours later.  I have worn these a couple of times and really love them. They are perfect for a swipe of colour for an easy make up look. Sisley Paris are sold exclusively in David Jones stores.

Flawless foundation application with the Lottie London foundation brush.

Lottie London is a beauty accessories brand that has recently been released in Australia and will be sold exclusively at Target. I adore the beautiful bright colours and they stand out in my current brush collection. The brushes themselves are really soft and pick up product easily. They are dense and fluffy and enable a perfect application of eyesahdows and foundation. Lottie London is vegan and cruelty free and really great value for money. If you are after an affordable and effective brush Lottie London is a great place to start.

I was lucky enough to pick up The Estee Lauder new Flawless Start primer from the Beauty Heaven Beautorium. I am so so so glad that I used my points to purchase this – It is amazing. It applies so smoothly, instantly covers pores and creates the perfect canvas for makeup. My foundation glides on and lasts all day without any shine, my skin is brightened and hydrated. This little guy is a winner.

I picked up Mario Badescu drying cream from Mecca recently as I have notices an increase of blackheads on my nose (Yuck!) and nasty hormonal breakouts.  I have read really impressive reviews on this treatment cream and thought I would give it a go. Stay tuned for a review in a couple of weeks time.

Touch in Sol is a brand that I have really been enjoying lately. It has sparked my interest in Korean cosmetics. I own quite a few of their primers and so far love them all. The No Poreblem primer is so lovely. It feels so soft on the skin and really disguises pores and evens out skin tone. I have only used this bad boy once or twice but I already know it is going to be a frequently used product. I have also tried the Dark Out primers. These primers are coloured and are used for specific skin complaints. Purple covers dark spots, Green covers redness and the Peach disguises gray skin tones. These little tubes are really beautiful primers and are right on trend at the moment. Colour correcting is a great way of creating a flawless base. Stay tuned for a brand spotlight on Touch In Sol shortly.
Have you come across any new exciting products?
