I tend to be the kind of person who picks things up gradually over the month as opposed to going on crazing spending hauls, but the past month or so I didn't spend a cent on makeup/beauty products until this weekend where I bought $40 worth of stuff in one shot. Whoops!
I went out with the intention of purchasing two Face of Australia Nail polishes from the pastel collection, in 'After Diner Mint' and 'Would you like some orange sherbet?' These were $4.95 although I went to Kmart and they were having a $3 off FOA cosmetics deal, but when I got to the checkout and it didn't scan like that, I tried to notify the checkout lady and she was in a foul mood. I didn't have the energy to argue with her, but I know I could have saved $6. How frustrating!
From Kmart I also bought the Australis nail polish in Speck-tacular. I have been drooling over this since it first came out earlier this year. So many bloggers posted amazing pictures of this over a black polish and I fell in love. I did, however, decide to wait until it was on sale. It has taken all this time to go on sale, but it was $4 off so it came to $4.95! Bargain!
Rimmel London was having a sale in Kmart too and so I picked up one of their Lasting finish lipsticks by Kate from the Spring collection in shade 16. Once again I had seen countless posts about this beautiful lippie, so I decided to make it mine for the wonderful price of $7.75!
I then wandered over to Target with the aims of getting a powder highlight from the Essence Twilight saga Breaking Dawn part 2 collection (isn't that just the most disgusting name ever!). I believe there is only one shade, but if not - mine is in the shade 'Bella's secret.' I was worried that it was going to be too glittery but it is just perfect! It cost me $5.95.
I then spotted the Revlon stand, with 40% off lips, eyes and nail products. I found myself swatching all the Just Bitten Kissable balms, and took home one in the shade Smitten for $10.77. (The sale is unfortunately only two days long, from the 11th of November to the 12th).
So there is my haul, I am so excited about all the products because all of them except the Revlon balm are planned buys that I have been wanting for so long. I've tested a couple of them out and good reviews are to come!
