Salon Melbourne 2014 Haul

SM1

Last weekend was the almighty Salon Melbourne! For those of you who don't know, Salon Melbourne is an awesome industry only event that sells heaps of beauty related products at industry prices! I didn't take enough photos of the actual expo itself to do an entire post, but you can see last year's recap here. This year I went with my blogging besties Mel, Kat and Erin!

So instead I decided to just show you my haul!


SM2

All the products! I didn't spend as much as last year, but I definitely got a few goodies!





SM3

Klara Cosmetics Kiss Proof Lips in 05, 07, 02 and 09

This was my first time trying Klara Cosmetics despite them being a blogger favourite! I fell in love with their Kiss Proof Lips - and not just because they had sexy gentlemen advertising them - but because of their awesome colour pay off! I tried to stick to more neutral colours, but couldn't help getting one of their newest neon colours; a bright pink!


SM4

Klara Cosmetics Trio

Klara Cosmetics also had a make-your-own palette feature, something I truly enjoy! I decided to just get a trio! Kat, Mel and I absolutely fell in love with the first colour, and we all ended up with it! (That is until Mel realised she already owned it and went back to switch!) I decided to keep my trio mostly neutral but still shimmery! (I don't know if these have colours, sorry!)


SM5

Eye of Horus Gift Pack

This was such a nifty little gift pack for only $50! The pack included a mascara, a liquid eyeliner and an eyeliner pencil in the colour of my choice. I decided not to be boring and got Serpentine, which is a gorgeous olive colour! This also came in a cute little mesh bag with a sharpener! 

SM6

Inglot Custom Blush Palette

I don't know what colours they are, sorry, but I pretty much copied Kat! I fell in love with her swatches whilst we were checking out the Inglot stall, so I decided to just get what she was getting! I got two matted colours and two shimmer colours!


Sm7

Inglot Custom Eyeshadow Palette

Again, I have no idea what colours I got! I only paid for the five pan palette but was given a ten pan by mistake! Oops! I'll have to head in to another Inglot store now to pick up  more colours!

SM8

Lime Crime Lipsticks in No She Didn't, Retrofuturist, Cosmopop, Chinchilla, Mint To Be, Glamour101, Centrifuschia and New Yolk City

I only needed these last few colours to finish off my collection, so I thought: why not! They were far cheaper than in store, so I was pretty happy with that. We arrived at 9am on the dot, and the entire stall was pretty much empty! By 10am it was crazy and girls were pushing each other out of the way just to get some! I feel so relieved I got there early on!

SM9

Orly Polishes in Green With Envy, Lemonade, Angel Rain

I decided not to buy any OPI because it can often be found cheaper online, but Orly can be a pain in the butt to find at a cheaper price! I love the Orly stand, and it was so hard to decide, so I went with colours I don't have many of - green and yellow. Angel Rain was too pretty to pass up! 


-- 

Overall I had a fantastic day with the girls! Although we arrived early and by the end of the day I was totally pooped, it was definitely worth it! I'll definitely be heading to Salon Melbourne again next year!
If you'd like to see any reviews on the above products, let me know and I'll see what I can do!

Did you go to Salon Melbourne this year? If so, what did you buy? Did you have fun!
Would you consider travelling to Melbourne for Salon Melbourne

  4. Nice haul, I love the look of that Klara palette, my kind of colours!
    I so wanted to go, and has the pass and all lined up, but then couldn't last minute on the Sunday, and the knew it wouldn't be fun with a pram (if even allowed) on the Monday, so didn't go. Really upset about it, but guess the good thing is I saved the credit card going red hot!

    1. Thanks! Such a shame you didn't end up going! Heaps of people had prams and kids but it was kind of annoying as they got in the way a lot (particularly for the mum who was pushing it - poor thing) so I wouldn't have recommended that! But very true, you saved yourself some money haha! xx

      And thanks lovely! The EOH was such great value I couldn't pass it up! I'll do a blog post on my Inglot blushes shortly too so everyone can see some swatches and know what numbers they are haha :)

  16. Just a question, can anyone just go to Salon Melbourne or is there a registration or 'criteria' or invitation? Sorry, I'm just unaware of this. :/

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There is a registration, but it's pretty easy going! If you're not in the industry (as in a beauty therapist or MUA or something) then you have to be a blogger or part of the beauty media. If you're a blogger you can just send them proof, like a business card, your media kit or even just link to your blog! Most of my bloggie friends got in that way :)
      Hope this helps!

  17. Impressive haul! I hate living so far away from all of these events :( I will make it over one time!
