Discovery bag: New beauty products reviewed
Discovery bag is back - and if you ask me, this month’s haul was one of beautyheaven’s best ever!
You’d be hard-pressed not to feel a smidge jealous of our 10 lucky members, who trialled and reviewed new beauty products from Glasshouse Fragrances, Lanolips, 100% Pure, MODELROCK Lashes and MODELROCK Cosmetics.
So which ones stood out? From the liquid-to-matte lippy and double-layered lashes to a multi-purpose balm, charcoal cleansing sponge and mini scented candle, there was a lot to consider.
Keep scrolling to see what our triallers thought…
“Upon opening the candle, I could smell the delicious inviting sweetness and the slight zing of lemon and grapefruit. The candle smells like sweet candy (I'm guessing that's the cherry) with a lemon twist. So inviting, fresh and clean.” - CherryBlossom
“When I lit the candle, it burned well and filled the room with its scent, which lingered a long while after I gently blew the candle out after about an hour of burning time. Overall [it is] a very special candle.” - lynx
“It comes in a clear, glass jar with a lid which keeps the dust off when [it’s] not in use. Being triple scented, the fragrance is strong even though the candle is only 60g. It burns nicely and doesn't leave black residue on the glass.” - Bijoux
“I have used it on my lips every night since receiving it and my lips are smooth and hydrated in the morning. It will definitely replace the myriad of lip balms I use at night as it’s the best formulation I’ve tried.” - Roxymisha
“There is no scent associated with the Lanolips 101 Ointment which is fantastic. The product is made of 100 per cent ultra-pure grade lanolin and a little bit goes a lonnnnng way.” - owlsparks
“It doesn’t feel heavy or sticky, and my lips feel softer than ever [after] using this. It’s also great to add over the top of matte lipstick. It has no scent and no bad taste. Also, you only need the smallest amount when using [it] on your lips.” - lynx
“It’s pretty much rock hard when you pull it out of the packaging - but soak it in warm water and in minutes you’ll have yourself a normal-feeling sponge. Almost immediately after using [it] my face felt softer and extremely clean.” - owlsparks
“The sponge felt really good on my face and it cleaned my face as well as my cleanser normally would. I didn't notice any difference in my skin after using this - therefore I don't think it's a must-have product.” - Vi
“I like using this sponge much more than a sonic cleansing brush. I find it convenient and it works so well at giving my skin a deep cleanse, while being gentle enough for everyday use.” - IndieAna
“These lashes are not for the faint of heart. Don't get me wrong, they are very pretty and fluttery, extremely fluttery. They are just like doll lashes. Not for everyday wear, well not for most, and if they are for you, way to go you!” - IndieAna
“These lashes are soft to the touch. When I wore them, I noticed they enlarged my eyes and were not heavy at all. In fact, they are very comfortable to wear. I’m not sure if they produce a natural look, but I love them.” - Lolakel
“The large doe applicator made it easy to apply the product which is very light, almost like a watery texture. It took a short time to dry down to the matte finish. I was impressed with the longevity of wear.” - Roxymisha
“The texture of the lipstick is ultra-light. When applied, it has a glossy, liquid consistency for about two to three minutes and then it turns to a matte finish. The lipstick is intensely pigmented and I love the cocoa scent.” - Lolakel
What do you think of these products? Have you tried any of them?
