A Very Expensive Haul

It's haul time again! So quickly?! I know, I've been shopping way too much, I definitely need to go on a spending ban for at least a month. This lot of stuff is from a couple of online orders and a trip to the city so there is quite a bit. As there are so many products, I won't go into much depth but don't worry there will be posts on most of the items eventually!

Firstly from the Book Depository I ordered the Lauren Conrad Beauty book as well as It by Alexa Chung. I wanted the Lauren Conrad book as I just genuinely like her and also because I thought it would look pretty in my room. The Alexa Chung one was purely because of hype so when I eventually  get around to it, hopefully it will be good!

Secondly, my order from Tarazz finally arrived! If you don't know Tarazz is a website where you can order products that are stocked by Sephora in Australia. I'm not sure if it was just my order but I am definitely not impressed! After my order didn't arrive a couple of months later I got onto them about it and they resent the package and included a bit of rudeness too! The second order did arrive, a little later than I was told and one of the products was in the wrong scent but at least I actually got this one. However onto the actual products. I finally got my hands on a Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Fearless- yay! I've only used it once so far but I can already see myself really loving it and purchasing a whole lot more in the near future. I also purchased the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara, the Stila Stay All Day liquid liner (aka the best eyeliner ever- more on that later!) and the Josie Maran Bear Naked nail wipes in Grapefruit (even though I ordered Peppermint). I also got four Deborah Lippmann nail polishes and oh my god. I am in love. I got Mermaid's Dream, Stronger, Across The Universe and Shake Your Money Maker.

About a week ago I had to spend a few days in court for uni so while I was waiting to be picked up from the city I thought a bit of shopping was 100% necessary. I quickly popped into Mecca in search of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes and ended up picking one up in Diffused Heat. I was also hoping to get Radiant Magenta but it was the one they didn't have. This is another oh my god moment for me. Obviously these blushes are gorgeous in the pan and the packaging is stunning but they also look so beautiful on! I'm completely obsessed with Diffused Heat and I definitely recommend you all go check them out!

I then ran into Myer and thought that it was about time I tried some Soap and Glory products. I bought the Sugar Crush Body Scrub and Hand Food. I'm yet to use the scrub but the hand cream has been used a fair few times already for those rough after work hands. I can't say I've noticed anything particularly amazing yet, it just seems like any old hand cream but I will let you know soon! I also grabbed one of the Korres Lip Butters in Jasmine after seeing them on Tenneil's blog. I honestly didn't think I would like the Jasmine scent but it was actually one of my more preferred ones when I finally had a look at them in person. I also really wanted the plum one but they were out of stock!

Lastly, I pretty much ran to David Jones in search of the Clinique Cheek Pop blushes as my mom was waiting for me but I just had to have one! I got the shade Peach Pop and it is the most beautiful blush I've ever seen. I haven't used it yet as I had to wait until I'd taken all my photos (blogger probs) but I will certainly be using it soon.

So that is the end of another haul! I hope you're all not sick of them yet but I really enjoy them so I hope you do too!

Have a good week!

  5. Aaaaah, amazing haul girl! Erg that sucks about Tarazz! Their customer service sounds terrible especially if they were rude too. Hopefully when Sephora starts shipping to Aus, it's not just through tarazz. Can't wait to read your further reviews!

  6. Disappointing to hear about Tarazz, I have been considering placing an order but now not sure! So keen to pick up the Hourglass blush, practically drooling! X

  7. Wow you got some amazing things, the Josie Maran Nail Pads look so interesting, plus the packaging is adorable! Ive just made an order to Sephora now that they ship to the uk and the Clinique blush is one thing I ordered. The DL polishes look spectacular :)

    I'm trying my hardest to save money at the moment, but then I see epic hauls like this and just want to blow all my money away, haha. I've been contemplating ordering some goodies from Tarazz as I'm dying to try the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes in Tipsy and Exposed. Part of me wants to wait for a future US trip that I haven't even planned yet! I can't believe how shocking their customer service was too. That's disgusting and especially as they were rude to you too.

    I have one Deborah Lippmann nail polish, Glitter In The Air, and I'm dying to get my hands on Across The Universe. So, so pretty! I can't wait to try the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes, but I'm making myself use up some of my other million blushes before buying new ones. How good is the Jasmine Korres Lip Butter? It smells so yummy!

  9. You got some great things!

  10. really want to try some of the tarte blushers!


  11. You always have the best hauls!! That tarte blush is beautiful!! I've been wanting to get one!
