Haul: February & March 2013

This is a haul from mid February till now. I've done a bit of damage but not too bad. My birthday was in March so I wanted to spoil myself a bit. Don't judge. Hehe.

1. M.A.C Lustre Lipstick in Freckletone - $36 AUD
From the year of the snake collection. I wanted to get the limited edition embossing. It's so pretty.

2. M.A.C Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Springsheen - $42 AUD

3. M.A.C Mineralise Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle - $47 AUD
Which is so raved about.

A pharmacist near my uni was having 50% of Rimmel so I thought I'd pick up a few things.

4. Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Pink Blush - $5 AUD
Light blue based pink

5. Rimmel Vinyl Gloss in Fashion Icon - $6.25 AUD

6. Rimmel Vinyl Max Lipgloss in Outrageous - $7.50 AUD

7. Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy - $49.99 AUD
This is currently on sale at My Chemist, Chemist Warehouse and The Beauty Spot. I've been lusting after this for AGES and it finally came on sale so I got it. Sale ends 18th of April.

8. Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Polished in Coral Silk and Midnight Magic - $5.21 AUD
These have finally come to Australia. They are originally $6.95 (not bad) but Target has 25% off most of their cosmetics. 

9. Physicians Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum - $5.48
PF is 50% off at Priceline. I wanted to try something from PF but this is all that interested me. I actually thought it was going to be $10 (that's what it had marked) but when they scanned it, it came up as $5 if I'd known I would've picked up another. I might try it out and if I like it I might go grab another.

First off the obvious how cute is the packaging? The colours are soooo cute and pretty. Love it!!!!!
I really like the baby lips, it's moisturising, goes on really smooth and looks glossy when you apply it. They smell okay (the menthol one smells like vicks) and I find them to be longer lasting than normal lip balms given your not eating or drinking (they last for about 1-2 hours). The menthol flavour has that tingling feeling which I enjoy but if you don…

Review: Dettol Revitalise Antibacterial Hand Wash with Raspberry and Pomegranate

Today I'll be doing a review on a product concerning personal hygiene. We all know that in winter people are more susceptible to the flu and colds, especially if you haven't had a flu shot (like me...). So in order to lower chances of catching a cold, hand hygiene is vital. Because a lot of the time hands are doing all the work germs can spread very fast, therefore to prevent the spread of germs, soap is one of the easiest ways to ensure you're not spreading germs to family and friends. 

I had the opportunity to try a Dettol product new to the market. Dettol has a number of versions of their new hand washes so there will most likely be one for you. They include; Delight with Honey & Apricot, Replenish with Shea Butter & Rose Water and of course revitalise with Raspberry and Pomegranate. 

Dettol's Revitalise Antibacterial Hand Wash with Raspberry and Pomegranate has the most beautiful fruity scent. Honestly is smells EXACTLY like raspberry and pomegranate, it is d…

Review: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Image: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Claims: "Extremely fast drying top coat. Protects your nail polish against chipping"

How long would you expect a "quick dry" top coat to dry, 60 seconds maybe 2 minutes? Well don't expect too much from this top coat. Every time I've used this top coat I've had problems with my nail polish smudging or sheet lines when I wake up. 

The top coat does dry fairly quickly however the nail polish remains soft and smudges if your not careful. I tried it a few times but the last time I tried it I left it for an hour and a half to fully set and without doing anything that would ruin the polish before going to sleep but when I woke up my nail polish had sheet marks. All I can say is disappointing. 

Yes it is a cheap product but from essence I expected a lot better. I've used a few essence products but this was the WORST. 

In terms of protection from chipping I don't believe it makes much of a different. My test for this was rimm…
