Weekend Haul


So much for "No Spend June" right? I caved once, so that was pretty much the end of it. So now I'm showing you my latest haulage from this weekend! I got a few packages on Friday and Monday today, and my loving boyfriend was kind enough to drive me to Daiso on the weekend! And take me on a Priceline haul Thursday night! 



NYX Blush in Peach


I purchased this baby from Beauty Joint, which is the first non-nail polish item I've ordered! I have yet to try it yet but I've heard so many raves that I'm sure it's amazing!




Essence Lipstick in Frosted and Prom Night


I really should have resisted these, however I noticed they were the only ones left of their colour in my local Target, and since the last time they were sold out it took them six months to restock, I figured I'd buy it now than save myself the horrible waiting time! Loving both of them!



Neutrogena Ultimate Sport Sunscreen Lotion

I bought this to qualify for the Free Skincare Bag, which annoyingly there was already one of these in there! Oh well, can't help that I suppose! Maybe I'll be sneaky and return it!


Biore Make-up Removing Wipes

I was so unconvinced that Biore was worth the money, but after trying it once, I'm hooked! Their products are amazing quality, especially the make-up wipes, which have very quickly become my favourite! I actually bought two packs of these as I always run out!



Pixi Palette in Mirage


I got this one of Strawberrynet, and was shocked at how small it was! I somehow expected it to be bigger. But I love Pixi and their designs are just cute, so I couldn't help myself with 2 for $17!



Pixi Palette in Lavender

This was the second Pixi palette I got in the 2 for 17 deal. This one is adorable, I can't wait to use them.


Face of Australia Sheer Gloss Lip Crayons

I needed these after seeing them on basically all of my favourite Aussie blogger's pages! They are AMAZING! I have used all of them already, and they are certainly up there with the gorgeous Revlon Lip Butters!


Seche Vite Quick Dry

Another purchase from Beauty Joint! I had to get this as everyone raves, this seems to be a beauty must-have. I got this for only $5.50 compared to the price everywhere else which adds about $10 onto that price - over $15! Thank the beauty Gods for Beauty Joint!


Biore Triple Action Toner

As I said before, I've become enamoured with Biore so I needed to try their toner. I haven't even got a current toner since my last one was discontinued, so I thought I'd give this one a go! 



Biore Warming Anti-Blackhead Cream Cleanser


This just sounds so nice doesn't it! Too many yummy words in the title (except maybe for blackhead.) I can't wait to give this a go!



Daiso Nail Jewelry Parts

Yay more nail art from Daiso! So in love with Daiso! Sadly they didn't have as many as last time I went, but I managed to pick up a few cute ones! I love the little roses, kind of wishing the whole thing was roses!



Daiso Eye Shadow in Blue


I was very pleased with the last eye palette I got from Daiso so I decided to give this one a go! I was really attracted to the colours, so hopefully they are nice and pigmented! If not, it's only $2.80 lost!




Coastal Scents 22 Brush Kit


My giant purchase for this week! This little beauty was only $34.95 but was actually discounted. I ended up buying something else for my sister (can't spoil it on here though!) for $24.95 and the discount I got was -$24.71 so I practically got her gift for free! Such a great deal!





Some pictures of my lovely new brush kit! I'm loving the fan brush! This is the first fan brush I've ever owned. I've never been sure what to use it for, but I'll certainly try! 




They look surprisingly professional for the price!

The brushes are all extremely soft and beautiful, and I've had no shedding as yet on any of them! They aren't as great quality as Sigma, but they certainly are worth a lot more than what I paid for them! Plus the variety of eye brushes is spectacular! It's definitely something I'm happy I invested in!

So hopefully you liked my little haul! I always feel like I've bought nothing until I put it all together on Monday and think: "My bank account is going to hate me!"
Have you tried any of these products, if so, what did you think?

  2. I have the cream cleanser from BIORÉ. It smells really good and I love it as a good weekly scrub... I use it 2 maybe even 3 times a week sometimes but I still have blackheads! -.-

    1. Biore always smells amazing I feel! A shame you still have blackheads though :( Mine used to be terrible until I tried the Bioré Release Steam Activated Cleanser... after using it about a week I had hardly any left! Hopefully that helps :)

  3. I haven't tried any of the products besides the NYX blush (which is great) but I'd like to get my hands on those FOA crayons! I've checked at least 3 stores for them, but alas, nothing yet. xx

    1. I've heard so many people loving on the NYX blush! The FOA crayons are truly amazing, I'd been checking everywhere but eventually found them thank goodness! Try K-Mart haha.. that's where I found mine!

  4. I looove your haul posts, you always have such a big stash of goodies to share!!
    I recently discovered Strawberry.net, and I was wondering.....is it really legit, and are the products definitely genuine? Also, do you know where it's based? Would love to know, as I am really keen to order from them!
    Hope you had a lovely weekend.

    1. Aw thanks hun! :)
      I only recently discovered them too. I did a lot of research before hand though and there are some really mixed reviews. So far from what I can tell (and my own experience) is that the make-up is 100% legit, I haven't heard of any experience where the make-up isn't. Skin care I've heard mixed, some people weren't happy as the products were old, some people were fine with what they got. So I stay clear of skin care just in case. When I got my package it was sent from an Australian address, so I think they have a base in Aus, which is good, as it makes shipping really, really quick!
      I also think that it might be different in every country as they probably have different warehouses, and some overseas might have poorer conditions. So far so good with the Australian site though :)
      I tried a small order first to see if I felt comfortable, and I do now so many start small and see how you go!

      I did have a lovely weekend (can't you tell hehe) thanks, I hope you did too :)

  6. :O So jealous! You always have massive hauls haha which is awesome! Not so much for that no spend june... *coughcough* ;D
    I have the toner that works miracles! Too bad it has alcohol, stings sometimes which is a downer :(
    Definitely going to try out those FOA crayons! If they're anything like the Revlon Lip Butters then count me in! :)

    1. Hahaha thank you! Definitely try the crayons, they are so like the Revlon Lip Butters (well, the effect anyway lol!) sad they only have the three colours! I'd love if they extended their range! :D

  7. That is an amazing haul, I especially love the Coastal scents brush set (I LOVE brush sets and have five) and the Pixi palettes!

    Not sure about these FOA crayons, everyone is going mad for them but I swatched them and they're a lot like a gloss, and I figured I didn't need any more lippies/glosses so I thought I'd pass...there's such a cult following though, that I'm so tempted to go for it!

    1. Whoa only just saw this comment now! Sorry :P
      I absolutely LOVE the Coastal Scents brushes!

      The FOA Crayons I love, only because I think they're really easy to use in crayon form haha!

  8. How long did your Beautyjoint order take to arrive? I'm considering making an order. :)

    1. It came super quick! About a week! That was with the cheapest shipping available too! I absolutely love Beautyjoint's shipping, although it can be a tad expensive :(
      Still great though :D Can't wait to see what you get! xx
