The past 3 months have been a bit dry in terms of beauty purchases. We haven't lavishly hauled anything (as we usually do) but we've managed to pick up some bits and pieces to put together a collective haul!
Nars: Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard // $35
This little number gets a shoutout at least once a week on either blogger, youtube, instagram, or twitter. In combination with this and the realisation that my under eye circles are getting out of control - it was the ultimate excuse to swipe the card and make this finally mine :3
Kiehls: Ultra Facial Cream // $36
I needed a new moisturiser and Khiels seemed to be the perfect candidate to conquer the winter dry spots. This is one of the best sellers of the brand so I'm expecting big thangs.
Next is Priceline! In June Priceline released a skincare goodie bag which you could grab if you spent $65 on the relevant skincare brands. I thought this was a good time to stock up on some favourites and try out some new items.
Antipodes: Ananda Antioxidant-Rich Gentle Toner // $23.19
Something to feed my toner addiction. I haven't tried a toner in a spray bottle before so it seemed like the perfect time to try it out. Not only that but it'd be good for the environment as well cos I'm not using as many cotton pads!
Antipodes: Anti-Ageing & Moisture Boost Minis // $15.99 each
The full sized versions of these products are quite pricey! Even though I've only heard positive things about them, I wasn't willing to take the risk so I decided to take on the minis before investing into the bigger ones. These are still 20% off (RRP $20) in this weeks Priceline catalogue so pick it up now whilst it's on promotion.
People for Plants: Hydration Gel // $23.99
This is a repurchase! With the arrival of winter, hydration is top priority and this does the job soooo naicely. I think this is a really great alternative to Hydraluron. It absorbs really nicely and primes my skin up for moisturiser to get that little bit extra out of it.
Sukin: Hydrating Mist Toner // $7.99
I kinda just bought it in the spur of the moment and it probably has something to do with the toner addiction I mentioned previously.
Vaseline: Active Fresh Deodorant // $2.00
I didn't know Vaseline did deodorants...so put that one in my basket.
Skincare Goodie Bag
I've seen heaps of people post up what was inside their bags and mine was fairly similar, so I thought I should leave out what was inside (but if your curious to know I'm happy to do a separate post if ya like :3). This bag literally (butnotliterally) weighs 5kg - it weighs a lot heavier than it seems. For now, it's safe to say that I'm fairly set for cleansers and makeup removers for the time being. I'm most excited to try out the People for Plants Mist Toner (yup, another one) and the Simple Eye Makeup Corrector Pen.
From Asos I picked up just the two items.
Bourjois: Healthy Mix Foundation in 53 // $12.75
This was on promotion and has been raved about so many times that I thought I should give it ago. I got it in the shade 53 Light Beige but it's just a touch too dark for me at the moment. I've been mixing it with other foundations and bb creams that are too light for me but I don't have any solid thoughts on it so far. I may have to wait for the tan to come around in summer to really test it out.
Eylure: Lashfix Adhesive // $1.96
If you didn't know, Asos put in a minimum $30 purchase for free shipping #whatttttt. This was basically a filler to get free shipping as I was only a couple of dollars off and my current eyelash glue probably needs to be thrown out so this will be the replacement.
So my friend went off to travel Europe for 3 months and before leaving I was planning on getting her the Travalo. As I always leave things to the last minute, I needed it ASAP and Adore Beauty seemed to provide the cheapest express shipping ($6.95). To make it worth my while, and the shipping, I decided to pick up two things for myself (as you do when you're shopping for others).
Skindinavia: Makeup Finishing Spray 59ml // $24.95
Sometimes my foundation gets cakey looking and I think it's the powder thats the culprit. I don't want to compromise powder (cos I hate looking oily) so I thought a finishing spray would be the perfect solution!
OPI: A Juicy Bunch Avojuice Skin Flavour Pack // $9.95
As it was my first purchase on Adore Beauty, I could get $5 off if I had spent over $50. At this point I was on $49.90 (oh the pain) so I added this pack in. It's a bunch of mini travel sized moisturisers that are perfect to put in your bag.
I just wanted to quickly mention that the service at Adore Beauty is really spot on! They have the online chatting person you can talk to (it's a real person) and my parcel came in the very next day. You also have the option to pick up your parcel at their Brunswick Warehouse if you need it ASAP and they have free shipping with any purchase! There were samples inside and also a Tim Tam to sweeten the deal :)
Only after my first purchase, I got an email a week later saying that you could get $10 off with your first purchase over $50. It's with referral codes (much like iHerb) and it would've been so handy to have at that time :( So if your looking to buy on Adore Beauty and want $10 off click here :) I think this is a limited time only as it expires on the 15th of August.
Sooo this was definitely a much lengthier collective haul than I thought :P Anyways hope you have enjoyed reading!
