A little beauty haul


It seems like my little (or not so little) obsession is getting the better of me. For the past month, I've been trying to commit to a 'no spending' ban, because really the amount I spend on beauty products is getting a tad out of hand, and also because I am going overseas next month and need to save up for that. Clearly, the ban didn't work (*sigh). What started as a trip to the shopping centre to buy some little bits and pieces ended up being a beauty haul after seeing those super bad red 'sale' tags that lure me in every time. Oh well, a little bit of new products never hurt anyone right? RIGHT?


So I guess the 'drugstore' equivalent store in Australia is probably Priceline, and at the moment they have a 25% off sale on Rimmel products and 20% off Bourjois products. Obviously I needed to snap that bargain up, and I finally bought the healthy mix and 123 perfect foundations, the healthy mix concealer, and the Rimmel stay matte powder in translucent. I've heard mixed reviews about these products, but I thought I would give it a go for myself. Hopefully I'll post some reviews on all these products in the near future! The real techniques stippling brush was just a little something extra that I decided to buy (not on sale unfortunately).

This Palmolive coconut body scrub is honestly one of the most delicious scrubs I've smelt, ever. I originally intended to buy the Mango body butter body wash, but seeing this little gem on shelves changed my mind entirely. I personally prefer scrubs that are in a bottle/tube than in a tub. I hate opening them in the shower and because I am such a clutz, I either drop the tub or get water in it, yea stupid I know.


And finally some eye and nail products. I decided to try out the Revlon colour stay nail polish in Bare Bones after seeing Essie Button rave on about it on her blog, let me tell you she did not exaggerate.  I am currently wearing them on my nails and I am in LOVE. I would say it is more on the grey side than being a true 'nude' but I love it regardless. I also bought some colour tattoo eye colours in bad to the bronze and tough as taupe, both on sale for $7, I will probably buy some more. And lastly, my favourite Rimmel eye liner, exaggerate waterproof eye definer in noir. I have extremely oily lids and my liner smudges pretty easily and this one of the liners I have found that doesn't smudge at all.

There you have it, my first beauty haul post! What beauty products have you purchased recently? Do you have any of these products? What do you think of them?
