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.

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 www.beautyheaven.com.au)



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…
