Weekend Haul





So the weekend is over which means it's time for me to show you my weekend Haul! Not a lot, but still so much money! Four lovely products (would have been five but oh well... read below!) I get to show off!


Firstly on Friday afternoon I went to Melbourne CBD with some friends, and talked myself into going into Mecca - just to browse. Of course I walked out with the new Too Faced Summer Eye palette, for a whopping $59.95 - as this pretty thing is not yet available on Beautybay.com! I just couldn't help myself! 


I also picked up a Kit Nail Strips set in "Lace It Up!" I've never actually tried these before, but I have been desperately lusting over the lace pattern, so I knew I had to try this! This set contains 20 nail strips, which means you can wear these twice, and at only $9.95, I was pleased!


I also received the Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual in the post on Monday! I was very pleased as I ordered it Thursday night, it came so fast! I ordered this little beauty from Booktopia.com.au, for only $23.95! I opted for the cheaper option, as instead of buying hardback, I purchased paperback. The shipping was also fairly cheap, so it ended up costing me $30 altogether, less than the hardback copy!



On Friday I also received my package from Sigma. I took the plunge and purchased the Limited Edition Paris Palette! This palette is actually huge! I expected it to be tiny and hand-sized, but it was actually bigger and contained two brushes, an eye brush and a blush brush! I was so pleased!

I also ordered the Essentials Kit in "Make Me Blush" however somehow my order must have been  mixed up, and I was sent the travel set instead, much to my disappointment. I was planning on gifting the set, however since I'll have to buy a new present in the mean time, the set will become mine! I guess I am happy about that, as I already have the Essentials Kit in black and it's just gorgeous, I'd love it in pink too! At least, when they fix the problem.


Overall, this has caused me to basically break my budget for a while now. I'm going to try and plan a No Spend June, but we'll see how long that lasts. I just can't resist a sale!

So, hope you liked my little haul! Have you tried any of these gorgeous products?
