Although I'm trying to use up old products, that is not stopping me from a-hauling, especially as we flew over to Adelaide for a long weekend, and I did not want to miss out on any makeup opportunities. And we're staying in Perth for a week, but I think I am happy with my finds now.
OH- as I was shopping, especially one day with my makeup addicted cousin (Ima bad influence, I got her started.... woopsie ;)) I came to the conclusion that I will be on a no buy from when I get home.. that way I will only focus on what I have. I was buying nail polish knowing I had ones at home that I haven't really used. But again, I'm not able to haul too often.
Enough rambling for now, lets get onto the haul!
I was shocked when I came across Inglot at Rundell Mall in Adelaide... I got so overwhelmed when I was in there I left empty handed but I knew I would regret it if I didn't get anything so I went back: :D
I don't know how much it is over in the US, but here the eye shadows were $10 each, and I got 3 in a freedom palette which was $11 extra for the palette, however if you have a z palette you can get away without one. They also had some things half priced so I also got a nail polish & lipstick.
I don't really have any bright red nail polish, but this was from the sale bin for $7 so I *had* to pick it up. The lipstick is really pretty as well. Come to think of it, I probably have similar colours, but couldn't be bothered going through them :P
I was also amazed (mostly jealous, though) that they had 2 MAC counters in David Jones & Myers, plus another one somewhere else in Adelaide. Of course, it is $$$ as hale compared to everywhere else. But I am so so happy I bought what I did.
You may have seen me mention it before, this shop sells affordable BYS, Chi Chi, as well as reduced Revlon & Maybelline etc, their own brand of brushes & hair/ jewelery/ bags.
Edit: I also bought a neon eyeliner, a Gloss Professions straight eyeliner brush & a BYS stick concealer as a backup.
I also swatched the eyeliners, lip gloss & MKA Glitter. The Chi Chi is a little bit more expensive at $13.95 but the BYS was $3.95 I believe? I received the lip gloss for free as a promotion (it's more smell & glitter than colour) I swatched the glitter horribly but when I saw it I thought of MACs reflex glitters -- not that I own any or know what they really look like lol.
Also- Ohemgeee Maybelline Color Tattoos are in! And I can't believe they're only $11.95. I got them in Tenacious Teal & Painted purple. I was actually going to buy TT online after seeing a recent Pixi2woo vid but I'm so glad I didn't!!
I also bought a nail polish by Savvy in Blue Bayou, an Australis lip & cheek stain in Da Vinci Peach on sale for $2.59 & a backup of my HG primer by Face of Australia.
EDIT: I also bought the colour tattoo in Audacious Asphalt, a backup Max Factor False Lash effect (normally $24.95, got it for $9.95!!) and a lime green nail polish from Models Prefer.
L-R Essence I <3 extreme volume mascara, Essence I <3 stage eyeshadow base, Face it NP (actually from The Face Shop) in OR202, Sally Hansen Gem Crush NP in Lady Luck, Essence NP in C'est La Vie!, Rimmel Wake me up Foundation in soft beige.
It will be a while before I do a review of the Essence mascara & primer & the Rimmel Foundation as I have my project empty products to use. But I tested the foundation quickly and so far so good!
Thank you for looking, if you have any questions about any of these products LMK :) xx
