Birthday Haul

Hmm i really should have expected that my next post would be a haul what with the birthday and stuff; still two hauls in a row makes me feel much richer then i actually am. ^^

However as all of these things were birthday presents from various friends and family and my wonderful boyfriend i am extremely grateful and feel very lucky to be the recipient of so much love and affection. Thank You.

So the only reason I'm showing these off is because they will all be reviewed (in the fullness of time) so consider this a little preview i suppose.

So here is the haul:

Essence "Ready for Boarding" Nail polish Set in 01 sending you kisses, 02 beauty on tour, 03 exits on your right, 04 via airmail! and 05 destination sunshine.

Essence "Ready for Boarding" Peel Off Base Coat in 01 carry me home
Essence "Ready for Boarding" Eyeshadow Palette in 01 beauty on tour
Essence "Ready for Boarding" 2in1 kajal pencil in 02 via airmail
Essence "Ready for Boarding" Lip and Cheek Cream in 02 beauty on tour

Essence Clear Eyelash and Brow Gel

I had the option to get the cosmetics bag too but it felt kind of flimsy despite being ultra cute, so i opted out, i have so many from Lust Have it now anyway.

Burjois Blush in Lune D'or (the NARS Orgasm dupe which btw, turns out it's not too shiny for me) Speaking of which, there is currently a 10% off voucher on their website right here which can be used in stores at Priceline

Rimmel Sun Shimmer Maxi Bronzer in 001 Sun Kiss ( i was lured by the pretty shimmery waves, they disappeared after one use)

Korres Lip Butter in Mango (so in love with this, unexpected)

OPI in Pirouette My Whistle

ecotools Bronzer Brush (this thing is amazing)

Real Techniques Blush Brush (this is possible the softest thing i have ever touched)

Australis Intense Eyeshadow Palette in "You Beauty"

Lush "It's Raining Men" Shower Gel (the liquid version of their Honey, I Washed the Kids soap)

and last but oh so totally- not-least are also from Lush, from their Emotional Brilliance Line (first looked at here) and they are; Success (silver eyeliner), Calm (blue eyeliner), Sophisticated (taupe/bronze/pink eyeshadow) and Perspective (a taupe/pink lipcream).

All in all it was an awesome day topped off with Waffles at the Pancake house (mmmmm), so next post up later this week will be about the Revlon Lip Stains and after that it's anyone's guess, but if you have a preference for anything that you see in this post just give a shout.

Have a good week :)


  1. I've been looking around for the Real Techniques blush brush everywhere but I just can't find it! Maybe it's a Brisbane thing, Brisbane is pretty stupid sometimes. I might have to order off the website. I'm glad you said it's so soft since I've been holding off buying another brand in the hope that I'll find it somewhere!

    P.S. enjoy Pirouette, it's amazing!

  2. I picked up mine at Priceline but only selected ones seem to have it, I've only so far found 2 stores in Perth that carry it. :) Good luck (and yes it is almost unbelievably soft)

    1. Yea I tried the priceline at Chermside, which is our biggest shopping centre here in Brisbane. I'll be in the city on wednesday for uni though so I might check the store in there then :)

  3. Happy Birthday! Those Essence nail polishes look really cute :)

  4. Happy birthday! Stretch it out - then all your purchases for the next month can be part of the birthday haul!!! LOL

  5. I've been eyeing the new essence polishes :)
    Glad to find another aussie blogger, followed!

    1. Heh, having tried them all now I'm particularly fond of the light green one. But i love all essence polishes to date. :)
