My Mini Makeup and Skincare Haul

 I have been generally good for the past 2 years and have not "hauled" since I've started my beauty box subscriptions (only Lust Have It! at the moment).

I had read mixed reviews when it comes to Mirenesse, some swear by it and others found their products/service mildly disappointing. I was later notified of a sale on, I spent 2 hours browsing the site... adding and deleting items from my cart, attempting to rationalise with myself, figuring out reasons why I need these extra products... Eventually my logical side caved and I put through a few items.

Everything came to about $42, free postage - courier with tracking. I received my package a week later.

Mirenesse Studio Magic Blur Powder
 Valued at $35

I picked this up hoping and wishing it would blur my pores and uneven skintone!! *fingers crossed*

Mirenesse Velvet Lip Lift - Natural 3 pack
Valued at $119.85

There were a few 3 packs on Catch of the Day. I decided to pick up the "Natural" pack because the colours seemed like it would suit warm skin tones.
How pretty are the packaging?! It reminds me of Sailor Moon's wand. 

Elizabeth Arden Deep Cleansing Lotion

This was just a product to get me over the line for free postage. However, I did need a  gentle deep cleansing lotion and I've had relatively positive experience with Elizabeth Arden.
They still have a few of these left for sale on their website! (Click here) 

Face of Australia Dark Side - Jafar 
$3.95 @ Priceline
I saw FOA's new nail polish range on a few blogs and I fell in love with Jafar (I was a huge Aladdin fan when I was a little). I trekked through 3 different Priceline stores in the City to find this baby! I very rarely ever purchase nail polish, but at $3.95 a pop (FOA had 20% off), I just could not resist this perfect winter shade!

Any recent guilty buys?

  2. The packaging for the lip glosses are super cute! They do remind me of the henshin rods a little <3 But the colors look really similar to each other... o_O Maybe they'll look different on, though.

  4. Jafar is the one that I really want too! I wouldn't mind the other cremes from that range, but Jafar looks amazing! I only have one Mirenesse lipstick and I love it. Their packaging is always stunning, mine has a huge rhinestone on the top of the lid! Would love to see some swatches of the lip colours on you x

  5. Those essence lippies look very nice! :)
