New In: Beauty Products

I'm pretty bad with informing you with my latest new products and they always get lost in my makeup collection after using them. Do I need to say I'm really bad at waiting and taking pictures of freshly new products?

Recently I was contacted by Sigma since I won the Affiliate Monthly contest.
I guess it's a random thing since one of my readers made a purchase. 
So they sent me Extravaganza Face Kit with 5 luxurious brushes with golden plated handles (here). 
I wasn't too keen on the Extravaganza idea and price (freaking 190$) but I actually love the quality.
Brushes are super soft and even softer than my regular Sigma and Mac brushes. 

Of course I went on a hunt for Essence Superheroes collection
I'm usually not freaked out for nail polish collection but I had to collect 'em all (well almost all).
Golden and blue one didn't caught my eye so I picked up only thermo effect, galaxy effect, holographic and oil slick one.
I'm overwhelmed with every one of them...they all preform really well, especially thermo effect.

Since I got a job (selling Yankee candles) I had to treat myself to a high-end product.
Clarins Lip Perfector 06 Rosewood shimmer was on top of my wishlist and I decided to give off 15€ for a freaking lipgloss. It's my best purchase ever!
Feels like a lipbalm, makes my lips looking great, smells like a cupcake and wears for about 5 hours. 
The best thing about it: my lips don't feel dry after it wears off!

Minnie XOXO collection from Etude House was also on top of my wishlist.
I managed to stay away from most of the products but the blush really caught my eye.
Design is cute and the threesome-colored blush makes really versatile combinations.
Etude House Nymp Aura Volumer mist is my staple product for giving that extra glow and reduce the appearance of powder. It's already my second tube of it and I love it!

My Beauty Diary sheet masks are my favorite.
I had a chance to snatch a set of 15 masks for about 20$ on Ebay here.
You can still get it here.
The ''new'' designs always make me sceptical about authenticity so let me know your opinion if you use My Beauty Diary.

All in all I'm pretty happy with my new favorite ''toys''. 
I think I didn't go overboard in the last 2 months but we shall see what December brings.
Of course there were loads of skincare stuff but nothing too exciting.
I'm also doing my traditional swap with Charlene so that always makes my year. 
I actually shouldn't buy any products...
