Autumn Makeup Haul (pt. 2)

01. Benefit The Porefessional – I’ve nearly finished my AB primer, so I decided to pick this one up as a replacement. I was really excited to order this because I’d heard Ingrid raving about it over and over again. Unfortunately for my face, turns out my skin hates this primer. I broke out within days of using it, and once I stopped my skin went back to normal. Bummer.

02. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette – I missed the boat on the initial run of lemming purchases of this, but I have it now and it’s lovely. Fun fact: I dropped this during the week and shattered both the product and my dreams.

03. Givenchy Photo Perfexion Foundation (in Perfect Ivory) – I completely understand if you’re sick of hearing me talk about this foundation. Yes, it’s still my favourite. Yes, I still wear it every day. Yes, I pick up a bottle of this whenever I place an order at Sephora.

04. Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder (Translucent) – I still have two nearly-full tubs of the Maybelline Loose Powder sitting in my makeup collection, but after using that exclusively for a year or so now I felt like a change. And this is it!

05. Bobbi Brown Corrector (in Porcelain Bisque) – I’m getting close to finishing up my Arbonne cream concealer, so I thought I would give this one from Bobbi Brown a try. I haven’t opened it yet, so I’m not sure what it’s like but I’ve heard good things about it so I have high hopes.

06. Lancome Hypnose Mascara (in Black) – I can’t live without this mascara. It’s my favourite, and I can’t remember a time in (at least) the past 4 years where I didn’t own a tube of this. It’s actually cheaper for me to chuck a tube of this into my cart when I order things from Sephora than it is to buy most ‘drug store’ brand mascaras here in Australia.

07. Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner (in Hustle) – This is fast becoming my favourite eyeliner. I was getting sick of wearing the same thing over and over again, and wanted to try something in a brown or bronze shade rather than black. This is an amazing product (long lasting/doesn’t smudge on the lids), and I can’t wait to try some more shades from the range.

Beauty Haul: Haus Of Gloi

It’s time to open the door and let Haus of Gloi into your life. I’d seen products from this brand popping up on various blogs and had always been curious about them, but every time I visited the website the products that I wanted were already sold out. Woe. Thankfully, a few weeks ago when I hopped over to Haus of Gloi to have a browse everything I wanted was in stock! I ordered: Troika Pumpkin Butter, Troika Bubbling Scrub (sample size), Vice Pumpkin Butter (sample size) and Ghost Puffs Pumpkin Butter (sample size and a Halloween special edition). I am already madly in love with this brand, and have since placed a second order for more goodies with some of the ladies at work. Enabling complete.

Beauty Haul – Strawberrynet / Adore Beauty

As a testament to my epic failure of Project 20 Pan, here are the beauty products I’ve been spending money on lately. Givenchy Photo Perfexion Foundation (my holy grail foundation, and a replacement for the bottle that I am currently running dry on), YSL Touche Eclat (a re-purchase of a much loved product that I’ve not had in my collection for a little while now and I’ve fallen instantly back in love with it), Biotherm White D-Tox BB Cream (as per my recent review, this is a new infatuation of mine), Moroccan Oil Glimmer Shine Spray (I recently ran out of my Fekkai Sheer Shine Glossing Mist, so this was a replacement for that) and Essie’s Pink Parka Polish (I’ve been lusting after this ever since seeing it on Michele1218). Not a bad effort.

Beauty Haul: Kiehl’s Skincare

Beauty brand Kiehl’s recently launched their very own Australian website, showcasing their product range at the new lowered Australian price points. I decided to try out their website to see what the service was like (and to take advantage of the free lip gloss gift with purchase they had at the time) and placed an order for a few products I’ve been dying to try for quite a while now. I ordered the Cucumber Herbal Alcohol-Free Toner and the Ultra Facial Moisturizer and received free samples of the Creme de Corps, the Ultra Facial Cream and Lip Gloss in Black Raspberry as a gift with purchase. I liked the personal touch that came in the form of a handwritten note from one of the Kiehl’s staff. Unnecessary, but certainly sweet. (note: Yes I realise that I am currently on Project 20 Pan, and yes I realise this makes me a big ol’ failure, and no I don’t care.)

Random Beauty Haul

The Aussie dollar has been performing like a champion lately, and I know a lot of my fellow beauty bloggers have been taking advantage of the strong exchange rate and doing a bit of online shopping. I am no exception, and have placed a few orders at MAC, Bath + Body Works and Sephora (the elusive Urban Decay Naked Palette shall be mine at last!). Pictured above are my most recent beauty acquisitions: Bath + Body Works Black Raspberry Vanilla Shower Gel & Triple Moisture Body Cream, Dermalogica Concealing Spot Treatment, Barrier Repair and Sheer Tint Redness Relief (all sent for consideration for review), MAC Eyeshadow in Phloof, Eyeshadow in Orb, Softsparkle Eye Pencil in Iris Accents and Mineralize Blush in Buddy Up, Benefit Cha Cha Tint (sent for review), Bobbi Brown Lipgloss in Hot Pink, Co Bigelow Apple Rose Salve, Co Bigelow Blueberry Rose Salve, Liplicious Signature Vanilla Berry Tasty Lipgloss, Liplicious Pineapple Juice Tasty Lipgloss and Co Bigelow Organics Strawberries & Cream Moisturizing Lip Shine.
