Newsflash: Bloom Warehouse Sale

Those of you lucky enough to live in or be visiting the beautiful city of Melbourne next week be sure to stop off in Richmond and go to the Bloom Warehouse sale! It’s times like these I really hate the fact that I live on the opposite side of the country!

Newsflash: Benefit’s New Lipstick Shades

1. Espionage 2. I Tink I Love You 3. Mod Squad 4. Rumour 5. Saucy 6. Wanna?

Just in time for Christmas, Benefit have decided to release 9 new full finish lipstick shades. And above are 6 of the new shades in all their glory. These and two additional shades (pillow talk & shy) will be available for purchase as of the 20th of November 2010. The full finish lipsticks from Benefit retail for $34 AUD RRP. I’ve not tried out the Benefit lipsticks before, but as a fan of quite a few products from their line (in particular the erase paste, high beam and girl meets pearl) I am definitely curious to try these out! The shade I am most interested in unfortunately isn’t swatched above. It’s pillow talk, which looks to be a gorgeous bright pink shade! I am going to attempt to trek to MYER in the city to see if they’re stocking these sometime next week…

Newsflash: NP Set

Two years ago, Napoleon Perdis released NP Set, a makeup collection with affordable price points, natural ingredients and easy to use products. The product range draws inspiration from the world’s fashion capitals, with all of the products named after these important global destinations. Fancy a silver luminizer that evokes London by night? A rose lip gloss that transports you to the sun-kissed Bahamas? Or a burgundy and gold shadow duo the girl from Ipanema would covet? NP Set makes jet-set glamour available to everyone. The line is now expanding, with three new product lines added to the original collection. Releasing this spring are enticing faux lashes, stylish bags and professional-grade brushes.

The NP Set Faux Lashes (retailing for $11.99 AUD), NP Set Bag Collection (retailing for $12.99 to $29.99 AUD) and the NP Set Brushes (retailing for $9.99 to $29.99 AUD) were available as of October 14th 2010 for purchase online from NP Set Cosmetics or from David Jones, Target, Napoleon Perdis Concept Stores and selected pharmacies and salons nation wide.

Newsflash: Mecca Maxima

I’m a little slow on the uptake here, as Mecca Maxima officially launched in Melbourne on October 13th 2010. Mecca Maxima is the brain child of Mecca Cosmetica and Kit Cosmetics founder Jo Horgan. With product price points ranging from affordable to save up and splurge, Mecca Maxima is a fun and exciting beauty lover’s playground. In other words I want to go to there. If you are located in Melbourne, or planning a trip there soon be sure to check it out! Mecca Maxima is located at the ground floor of the Latrobe Street Building (via Little Lonsdale Street). Happy shopping!

Newsflash: Kit Limited Edition Christmas Sets

Keeping to the Christmas theme that I’ve been embracing lately, here is a selection of the Kit Cosmetics limited edition Christmas range. I love the fact that this range is aimed at a warmer, Australian type Christmas rather than the “White Christmas” theme everyone else seems to embrace. Though I wouldn’t expect anything less from a proudly Australian company!

Treasured Treats To Go ($44.95 AUD) Contains four of Kit’s best selling products: Lip Sheen in Pinky Tint, Pomegranate Hand Cream, Nail Polish in Jump Start and Sunscreen.

Polished Up Nail Kit ($29.95 AUD) Contains four of Kit’s travel sized signature nail hues: Mix It, High Roller, Winner Takes and Top Gear.

Little Juicy Kit ($19.95 AUD) Contains travel sized versions of Kit’s much loved Pomegranate and Pink Grapefruit body wash and lotion.

Lush Lips And Polished Tips Kit ($24.95 AUD) Contains Kit’s Lip Sheen and Nail Polish in Fast Track for ladies who like to keep things classy.

I will definitely be hitting up Kit before Christmas to stock up on a few of these gift sets. I find them absolutely perfect for those “secret santa” presents that I often have to buy around Christmas time. This range will be available from Kit Cosmetics as of November 8 2010.

Newsflash: Benefit Magic Ink

You may have noticed my recent whinging about not being up to scratch with my liquid eyeliner application technique. Well it seems Benefit have taken it upon themselves to help me out with a little how-to video for their new product, the Benefit Magic Ink. The video shows you how to create a gorgeous daytime look with the liquid eyeliner, and then how to amp it up for night. The Magic Ink retails for $36 AUD and will be available in Australia on November 6 2010.
