Little Shopping Spree

Since Christmas there has been heaps happening and plenty of sales everywhere. By now almost all of them have wrapped up, but I thought I would share with you a few products I lashed out on, while the sales were still around. 

I got these products from Mecca Maxima because I love that shop so much; is anyone signed up for Beatyloop through Mecca? If not you should take a look on their website. Unfortunately I don't think I will be getting to level one anytime soon but I love getting updates about new makeup, deals and I would love to get the bonuses on level 3! If only mecca was my own personal makeup collection. Goal set. Can I also mention I ordered this online on a Sunday and recieved it on a Tuesday. Like the Tuesday after, IT TOOK 2 DAYS TO GET TO ME! I was amazed at how quickly Irecieved it and how cute the packahing was. Just look at this cute and stylish, pink box surrounded and filled with tissue paper. Two ticks of approval already.

So from Mecca I got a foundation, foundation pump and a sharpener. Did I mention with any order you get 3 samples of your choice of products. How great! I chose the Smashbox Photofinish Foundation Primer, Chantecaille Anti Stress Flower Harmonizing Cream ( a fancy moisturizer) and Too Faced Shadow Insurance.

The foundation I decided on was Nars Sheer Glow, I had heard so many good things bout this foundation and I totally agree. I am in love and don't know why I didn't try it earlier! It is so light but has great coverage and is buildable. It is definately my new favourite. Although it didn't have a pump so I had to get one of them, just a personal preference. I got the shade Deauville, light 4 and considering I didn't do any swatches in store because I got it online ( which I do not recommend! You should always test the colour to see if it matches your skin tone) it is a perfect match to my skin tone! I was impressed with my decision and glad I didn't go with my second choice. Pat on the back to me. The pump just makes thing so much more enjoyable too :)

The next thing I have bought since Christmas I got from Priceline; they were on sale!
I got some Real Teachniques brushes which I showed you on my Instagram! I actualy only had a few basic brushes up until now and I just can't explain how soft and lovely they are to use. I got two sets, both coming with the cute 2-in-1 case + Stand. The first being the Your Eyes/ Enhanced Starter Set; this set includes a Base Shadow Brush, Delux Crease Brush, Accent Brush, Fine Liner Brush and Brow brush.  The base shadow brush is definitely my favourite brush in this set, it is so soft, the perfect size, can be used for base shadow, contouring and blending. It is just a pleasure to use. The second set is the Your Base/ Flawless Core Collection. This set includes the Detail Brush, Pointed Foundation Brush, Buffing Brush and Contour Brush. My favourite of this set is probably the Bffing Brush, this is because it can be used to add foundation ,powder, contour, anything. 

Lastly I had a quick stop at the sale bucket near the ChiChi section in Meyers. I got a new Make up Sponge, a Metalic Blue Eyeliner, a Metallic Eyeshadow Crayon Stick in Silver and the ChiChi Eye Magic Strips in Party Princess. Each item was less than $5. I love using the makeup sponge, it has a useful pointed end and rounded end and is so much cheaper then the original BeautyBlender. I got the Eye Magic Strips becasue my mum and I wanted to see how well they work, we were curious; I still haven't tried them yet though.

So that is all of the products I have bought since Christmas and so far I am loving all of it.
