Mini Stawberrynet Haul + Carols in the Domain

I decided to have a merry little Christmas by buying myself a present. I've been trying out a little sample of the Clinique's Pore Refining Foundation - it worked wonders. My pores were barely visible and I have a lot of pores.

Strawberrynet had a 10% off, then another 10% off all orders to Australia. So I ended up paying $32 for the foundation + Free Shipping. The foundation retails for $50 in Australia.
In the midst of it, I also received a free Korres Lip gloss with my purchase.


When I first took the foundation out of the box I thought it was sample sized. It was TINY! Then I realised the bottle was rather compact. It is in fact, a full size product.

I got the Clinique Pore Refining Solutions in #6 Ivory. The sample I received was #2 Alabaster.
Alabaster was a bit pink. Ivory was a little darker but had an olive undertone. The shading for this range is rather obscure, #2 and #4 were possibly the only shades that would suit light to medium-light skin tone.

There were a few shades of Korres Cherry Gloss to select from, I picked #52 Red. 
 It's a sheer red, very pretty.

 I went to Carols in the Domain on Saturday, we got the Candle Bag (green bag below) - with over $100 worth of goodies for only $15, all products were donated and all profits went to charity.

There were a lot of random items... from chocolates, biscuits, lollies, chips to small containers, wet wipes and a freddo keyring. We got it for the candles, so we can wave it around in time with the carols.

To my ardent surprise, I found a Tony and Guy Dry Shampoo and a Burt's Bees Beewax Lip Balm!

Here's a picture from Carols in the Domain, the carols started at 8.30PM ... we got there at about 3.50pm. It was jam packed.

Have you tried any of the beauty products? Did you go to Carols in the Domain?


  1. I have tried the Toni and Guy Dry Shampoo, it was a great product but I still think I prefer Batiste overall!

  2. Very nice! And for a good cause too! I hear about it every year, but sadly, never go! I should really make an effort to get out there!

  3. The foundation looks so tiny, no wonder you questioned whether or not it was full size! I love that they gave such a great freebie! I always watch the carols on tv and have never been in person but how nice of them to give a goodie bag!

  4. nice products *_* your blog is very lovely and interesting. im glad if you visit my blog, too <3 keep in touch!
