Holiday Haul Part 3

I was going to post this last night but when I came home from work I was to tired so I'm posting it now.. This is by far my favourite part of my holiday haul. This post will include all the lovely Make Up items I purchased while in Queensland :):)

Like I mentioned I hadn't really done any post Christmas shopping before I went away & I had saved up  a fair bit of money for my holidays so I pretty much just purchased items I liked / had been lusting over before I went away. Half of these items were sale item's & the rest were full price.

This is just going to be a quick post as I'm extremely busy today so I wont be talking to much about the products but if anyone wants me to do a closer review on any of the items feel free to let me know :)

From L to R: Pomegranate Pink, Bad to the Bronze & Bold Gold

Maybelline Color Tattoos Pomegranate Pink, Bad to the Bronze & Bold Gold - I picked these up in the 50% off sale at Chemist Warehouse for only $5.97 & I really love these eye shadows for colour bases & as I own a lot of neutral eye shadow palettes a lot of them include shades that are Bronze, Rusted & Gold Toned which are very similar to these 3 & they work great together. I also really like how they work even without eye shadow over the top.

From L to R: Bad to the Bronze, Bold Gold & Pomegranate Pink
 I went to a Mecca Maxima Store (which by the way I never even knew existed) I'm guessing they only have stored over in the East Coast. Mecca Maxima is pretty much a mix of Mecca Cosmetica & Kit Cosmetics & It's pretty big & Pretty AWESOME :) they were having a GWP offer on at the time when you spend $60 you get this little gift box which included:

 Kate Somerville Tanning Towelettes 15g Packet - I don't actually know how many are in here but I'm assuming just 1
A set of 6 Bobby Pins made by Mecca Maxima for Kit Cosmetics - these are the cutest little things & the colours look very nice together.
Nars Mini Blush Orgasm - This is the main reason I wanted this gift set. This little blush is adorable & I don't own Nars Orgasm so this is a very nice addition to my collection even though I'm not the biggest fan of blush I think this is an exception.

One of the Items I purchased from Mecca Maxima was this Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranate. This is my first Korres Lip Butter & I havn't tried it yet but It smells really fruity & delicious this was $18.95.

Prior to my holiday I had mentioned that my sister was overseas on holidays, she was planning on meeting us over in the Gold Coast. She flew in from India via Singapore & while in Singapore she was nice enough to gift me a Lancome Hypnose Doll Eye Mascara. She had a stop over in Singapore & decided to do a bit of shopping & before she went away she fell in love with this mascara & knew I would to. I've only used this twice & I LOVE IT!! :)

From Mecca Maxima I also picked up the Stila In The Light Palette RRP$62(and yes I realize I put it back in the packaging upside down lol) & a Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eye Liner Pen RRP$32. I was planning on purchasing these items online from Beauty Bay as they are a lot cheaper but I'd done so well on saving money & not spending on my self over Christmas I want to splurge a bit & let me tell you this palette is worth ever dollar. The Stila In The Light Palette contains 10 Eyeshadows & A Smudge Stick in the shade Damsel. I've had a bit of a play around with this & my favourite shade so far is Bubbly which is a warm toned Champagne Colour and is simply gorgeous.

 The Last 3 items I got are all by the Balm & were all purchased from David Jones.

I got the Bright & Pretty Cosmetic Kit, the Balm Jovi Rockstar Palette & the Nude Tube Palette

The Balm Bright & Pretty Cosmetic Kit was a sale item & it was roughly about $34 from $50 it includes:

Mary-Lou Manizer 8.5g Highlighting Powder
What's Your Type? Black Mascara 10ml
and a Plump Your Pucker Lip Gloss in the shade Pink My Lemonade 7g
Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighting Powder

Swatches of the Highlighting Powder & Lip Gloss
 The Balm Jovi Rockstar Palette was roughly $31 from $45 & contains 12 Eyeshadows, a Blush, a Highlighter & 2 lip colours

 Apart from the sale Items David Jones were having a Buy 1 get 1 for 50% off on all the Balm products so I decided to pick up 2 Nude Tude Palette one for me & one for my Sister. With the sale these work out to be $37 each. This palette contains 12 Eyeshadows & a dual ended applicator brush. I haven't tried any of these out yet but they look really pretty.

 So that is the end of all my Holiday Haul post's hope you have enjoyed seeing what I picked up. I'm going to be focusing less on Hauls & more on Review type posts so if any one would me to take a closer look of anything I've purchased please let me know

Happy Thursday Everyone
