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

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.

New arrivals on my makeup desk – colourpop and whitening lightening

Colourpop

I’ve had a few new things arrive recently and I wanted to share them with you, I’ve jumped into the Colourpop trend and decided to try something new to whiten my teeth.

My gorgeous friend Candy and I decided to go halves on a Colourpop order. I have been seeing this brand everywhere! And although I don’t want to be all same old, I had to try it for myself.

I grabbed a lippie stix, a lippie pencil, two eye shadows and a blush. So controlled right? I just wanted to order a few things that would give me a feel for the products and the brand (plus I am trying to not go overboard on the spending as holiday plans are unfolding!).

Above are the two lip products I bought. On the left is the lipstick in the shade ‘Brills’ and on the right, the lip pencil ‘pepper’. I really like the consistency Continue reading



E.L.F Haul – featuring their new brush range

E.L.F Haul

It had been awhile since an E.L.F package turned up on my doorstep, so it was time for a haul. I has spotted that they had a few new brushes and it was also my besties b-day (she happens to also be an E.L.F fan) so it was just meant to be.

E.L.F brushes

The brushes above are both new designs. The contouring brush is designed simply just for that. I love that there is finally a brush in this style from an affordable brand. On first impressions the bristles are soft and dense – exactly what I would expect from a contouring brush. Continue reading



L’Oreal Haul – Lipsticks, Foundation and the new Skin Perfection range

Something I have discovered this weekend is that it is not a good idea to go out browsing a few shelves at Famers if you:

A) have just watched a Shaaanxo video and have fallen in love with the products used

B) Know that the bank account is looking low but are kind of in a bit of a YOLO mood

C) Can’t actually wear much makeup at the moment anyways and have a desperate want to compensate the sadness from this by purchasing more makeup.

You guessed it, I was all of the above! A little wander through St Lukes Shopping Mall turned into a four product L’Oreal haul. Although do I regret any of it?! Hell no! I seriously cannot wait to get all these products up on my face. Continue reading



I-herb Haul featuring e.l.f, vitamins and snacks.

photo (3) Today I thought I would share with you all my I-herb haul which arrived around two weeks ago now. I was needing a few specific items this time round and also grabbed a couple of new products to try out too. For those of you who are unfamiliar with i-herb.com, its a fantastic American website which sells a huge range of health and beauty products, I have written about it in the past here and here. It is one of my favourite online shops because Continue reading



Random Weekend Haul #2 – Farmers, The Warehouse, Lush and a Big Bucket Sale

random weekend haul 2 This Saturday I ended up grabbing a few items on a day out and about – which turned into a bit of an unexpected random weekend haul – but seriously almost every store I walked into was having a sale. I also haven’t gone out and purchased make up in what feels like truly forever as I have decided to be bit more careful with my money at the moment. But it’s cool right? Because almost everything was on sale (nod your head with me here). Any ways have a peek at the bargains I picked up! Continue reading



Beauty Joint Haul – Lashes, BH cosmetics and Lime Crime Eye Shadow Helper

PicMonkey Collage Back in the day before I discovered sites like i-Herb and drugstore.com, Beauty Joint was my jam. It was the first website I ever did bigger online hauls on and I actually think it may have been the giver of my first E.L.F haul…….Ahhh the memories! Recently I discovered that Beauty Joint have added quite a lot of new brands to the site since Continue reading
