I recently ordered some goodies from Sephora (once again via Hop Shop Go), and they arrived at my door on Wednesday afternoon. Cue happy times. The main purpose of the order was to replace my Givenchy foundation, but if I figured that I might as well order a few other things to make the postage fee worthwhile. I ordered: Givenchy Photo Perfexion Foundation in Perfect Ivory, NARS Soft Touch Eyeshadow Pencil in Hollywoodland (at last!), a tube of the Urban Decay Primer Potion and the new Bobby Brown Peony & Python Eyeshadow Palette (which, by the way, cost $100 less at Sephora than it will be retailing for in Australia). I also picked up a couple of the Urban Decay Glitter Eyeliners for my co-worker, and shipping from Hop Shop Go to Australia ended up being around $30 AUD. Not bad, especially considering how much I’m saving on the Bobbi Brown palette alone!
After seeing various Face Of Australia makeup products popping up in reviews on different blogs I decided that I wanted to try a few things from their line. (lemming lemming lemming) I made a beeline for my nearest Big W and picked up some of the items that I liked the look of. For some reason I was really in the mood for a grey eye look that night, so I also stopped off at the Australis counter on my way past and picked up one of their eye palettes and a few of their lip products. Items pictured above: Australis Intensifeye Wet/Dry Eyeshadow in The Big Smoke, Australis Lip Gloss in Sassy, Australis Lip Gloss in Happy, Face of Australia High Definition Liquid Eyeliner in Brown, Face Of Australia Eye Definer Pencil in Charcoal, Face Of Australia Eye Definer Pencil in Purple, Australis Lip Butter in Ringa Rosy, Face Of Australia Eye Primer in Shimmer, Face Of Australia Eyeshadow in Pearl & Face of Australia Blusher in Outback Primrose.
All Over Colour Stick in Lilac Petal, All Over Colour Stick in Pink Lemonade, Shimmering Facial Whip in Toasted, Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal, Natural Radiance Blusher in Innocence, Natural Radiance Blusher in Shy, Natural Radiance Blusher in Flushed, Natural Radiance Blusher in Glow, Cream Blush in Flirt, Cream Blush in Heartbreaker, Studio Blush in Tickled Pink, Studio Blush in Peachy Keen, Super Glossy Lip Shine in Watermelon, Super Glossy Lip Shine in Candlelight, Super Glossy Lip Shine in Goddess and Super Glossy Lip Shine in Pink Kiss.
My haul package arrived from Stila (via Hopshopgo) today, and my feelings towards everything are kind of “meh”. I’m putting it down to the fact that I’m sick and unable to muster up much enthusiasm for anything right now, including Christmas. Yes, I said it. I’m hoping this summer cold leaves the building (aka my body) stat so I can start feeling like myself again. In the meantime, here is what I ordered from Stila: Illuminating Finishing Powder in Gold, Sheer Colour Tinted Moisturiser in Bare (yet received the shade “light”, grr), Illuminating Tinted Moisturiser in 01, Empty 6 Pan Palette, Stila Eyeshadow in Kitten, Stila Eyeshadow Trio in Goddess, Stila Eyeshadow Trio in Anya, Stila Lip Glaze in Grapefruit, Stila Lip Glaze in Kitten and Stila Lip Glaze in Mayberry. I also ordered a lip glaze in Papaya, but as they sent me Lemongrass, which is not my sort of shade at all I think I’ll give it to my co-worker tomorrow.
After reading Dee’s post regarding Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liners, I decided I needed some in my life. So I ordered the shades RSVP & Honey Bunny based on the swatches she posted, and also Recess because I’ve had that shade before and remember liking it. I also posted another rambling thinking-out-loud video after opening these for the first time here, if you’re interested. I can’t wait to wear these tonight!
