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.

Review: ColorBurst Lipstick in Petal and Peach

Claim: "Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick has a formula that feels weightless on the lips. It includes innovative pigments that delivers high impact colour in one swipe. The elasticolour formulation is designed to distribute rich colour pigments evenly over the lips and allows for a comfortable feel. The formula is also enriched with moisturisers and antioxidants such as sweet almond oil to improve lip texture and prevent drying." (from

Packaging: Love, Love, Love. It's gorgeous. The quilted pattern, the tops (showing quite an accurate representation of the colour) and the way REVLON is embossed on the lpstick itself, reminds me of high-end packaging. 

Formula: They are smooth and easy to apply. The colour payoff is actually quite sheer, so to get good coverage you need to really build it up and if you have more pigmented lips then your lip colour will definitely show through. Even with my medium pigmented lips, my natural lip colour shows through.

Empties: #3 (Skincare)

As a reference I have combination skin. Non sensitive and not acne prone. 

1. Biore Revitalise 4-in-1 Self Foaming Cleanser This is my second bottle of this cleanser. I love it. For the first few uses it tingles slightly on the skin which I love however the tingling does stop after using the product for a while. It makes my face feel clean without being tight.
Would I repurchase? Definitely 
2. Warming Anti-Blackhead Cream Cleanser  This did NOTHING for me. I have blackheads all around my nose and this did nothing to diminish them. The product itself doesn't warm up for long, the heat last for around 10 seconds and really doesn't do anything. It has very, very small exfoliating beads (ingredients) but personally I prefer something a bit more rough because this one just did nothing for me.  
Would I repurchase? Definitely no
3. Garnier Clean Sensitive 2 in 1 Gentle Make-up Remover Love, Love, Love. This is really good value for an awesome makeup remover. I only use this for my eye make…
