Haul: Mecca

Honestly you're probably sick of seeing hauls on my blog right? But I just love hauls. 

First...story time. I seriously can't remember where I first saw it but when I did, I knew I had to have it. The colours were so beautiful, the packaging was so chic and the value for money was just too good. Plus with Mecca now trying to compete with Sephora (coming soon to Australia) I knew the Australian price would be somewhat reasonable. It is...wait for it...the Nars Virtual Domination Cheek palette. 

First I tried buying it off spacenk which is an England based company (if I'm not mistaken) but sadly they don't ship Nars products to Australia (what a bummer). Then I was looking up reviews to determine if this was something I really really really wanted. And so the obsession began. I sussed out when it was coming to Australia then stalked the Mecca page for about 4-5 days (not even gonna lie), it finally popped up and I added it straight to my cart, clicked buy, and so the waiting game began. I made the order on Monday and it arrived on Wednesday but because of the stupid backed up traffic (damn you Monash freeway) I didn't get home in time to sign for the package so I had to wait till the next day to pick it up.

I was so impatient I opened it in the car park and was pleseantly surprised by the way it came boxed. And so I thought to myself I have to blog this.



The "balloon thingies" on the side meant that the products were nicely secured. 


And the box inside the box was filled with a fair bit of tissue paper for extra cushioning I suppose. And the box itself is so pretty. 


Shipping is only free for orders over $75, and the palette was $86 so I thought in case it sells out in store, I'll play it safe and order it while I had the chance. You also get to choose 3 samples which is a nice added bonus. So overall I'm giving Mecca a big thumbs up for their service and gorgeous packaging. 

I just wanted to show a bit of love because more often then not people talk about their bad experience, which I respect because it helps people choose wisely. But once in a while it's nice to show some love. 

Thank you to everyone who reads my blog. I really appreciate it. Hope you're having an amazingly beautiful day.

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…
