Colourpop X Hello Kitty Haul

coloupop x hello kitty haul

My Colourpop X Hello Kitty haul is finally here! Okay, and yes I got a few other bits and pieces too! The new limited edition collection went live on the 1st of November (Hello Kitty’s birthday) Β and some of the range is still currently in stock. There is a selection of lip, eye and face products in the collection along with a super cute makeup bag. I grabbed the ‘Mama’s Apple Pie’ eyeshadow quad set, two of the lip products and the ‘School is Fun’ highlighter from the Hello Kitty Collection. I also bought two super shock shadows and a new brow pencil to try out.Β  Continue reading



Big Bucket Haul – November

Big Bucket Haul

Here is my November Big Bucket Haul! I heard that Big Bucket Sales are closing down, so I thought I better go before they end forever (although I’ll be honest I’m not sure if I believe they are actually closing down? I feel it could be like those rug sales that are forever popping up!). As always I was keen to pop in to get some dry shampoo as it is one of my life essentials. And I was keen to see what else was there and whether the closing down prices would be super cheap. It turned out that they had an extra 30% off marked prices for all cosmetic items, which meant I got some pretty sweet bargains. Continue reading



Big Bucket Sale Haul – August

Big Bucket Sale Haul

I went shopping on the weekend and ended up with this Big Bucket Sale haul. The last few Big Bucket Sales I’ve been to have been so disappointing, and although this one wasn’t like the good old days I did managed to find a few goodies. I was excited to find the Batiste Dry Shampoo because I practically live off this stuff. The other products were just things that sparked my interest! Continue reading



Colourpop Haul using YouShop

IMG_1588

Last week I had a Colourpop haul arrive via YouShop. I decided to use YouShop to ship my Colourpop products to NZ because the Colourpop shipping price was way too expensive! There were mixed reviews online about whether using YouShop would actually end up any cheaper, and I was a little concerned about the length of time the package would take to get to me. After a few tiny hiccups however, I have a bunch of new beautiful Colourpop products to play with.Β  Continue reading



Makeup cravings (or addictions)

makeup addiction memes

I’m having makeup cravings. There’s really no rhyme or reason, and I didn’t just win the lottery either. I just want all the makeup. Two nights this week I have sat on the couch filling up online shopping carts and then having a little laugh to myself when either I see the total cost in USD, or I see the shipping price to get the goods to NZ. To date, I have made one actual purchase based on these cravings and currently have two full shopping carts open in my browser. I’m also tweeting my makeup friend Elese, as she has offered to let me ship some things to her place in Australia which she will forward over to me. As I said, makeup cravings, major ones….

Bangkok Beauty Haul – 2016 + shopping guide

IMG_1402

A Bangkok Beauty Haul and shopping guide to kick off 2016! And no, you aren’t having major dejavu. I managed to end up in Bangkok again (exactly one year later!) and of course there’s a beauty haul to prove it. We spent two solid days out exploring the city visiting malls, shopping squares and markets and it’s safe to say that my luggage Β came home quite a bit heavier as a result. Continue reading



NYX Haul – Purchased from Farmers Queen Street

NYX Farmers Queen Street

With NYX hitting the shelves at the new Farmers Queen Street, nothing could hold me back from a NYX Haul. I really love NYX but because of the availability issue here in NZ I haven’t bought anything from the brand for quite awhile. We could say that I was well overdue for a bit of an NYX haul, so let’s have a look at what I got! If you want to know more about NYX coming in NZ click here for all the details. And if you are interested in what the pricing is like, scroll down to the bottom of the post to see what it all came to.

MAC Haul

IMG_1172

So somehow I got to the end of the week and realised I had gathered up quite a MAC Haul – nine different products to be exact (don’t tell my boyfriend!) Since I acquired all these products in a few different ways I thought I’d show you them and also chat about where/how I got them, as I don’t often actually buy MAC from a physical MAC store. Continue reading



XO Beauty Haul

Shaaanxo beauty

A recent sudden desire to wear false eye lashes to an event on the weekend inspired my first XO Beauty Haul from Shaaanxo. I have always had in the back of my mind that I wanted to try out her lash range but I’m not a huge false lash person. My sensitive eyes mean there’s few opportunities to safely layer my eyes in lash eye and on the most part I have always found falsies trying and just too fiddley.

The false eyelash struggle is real, like if I am crying in frustration while doing my makeup you know I’m probably attempting false lashes. However, there were no tears or tantrums this time round!

I grabbed one pair of ‘the romantic lashes’, one tube of white Duo glue and Continue reading
