This is part one of two of a collective beauty haul, which I've been meaning to post for a while, but only posting now as I haven't had chance to photograph the million and one things I've bought over the past couple of months! My new purchases have been piling on top of my desk and as I've kept on purchasing, my haul is now too big. It's been bugging me that I can't play with my new toys yet because I have to take photos first. That's the problem with beauty blogging, isn't it? Haha. You want to photograph your things while they still look brand new and unused.
Two of my favourite kinds of lipstick colours are dark vampy reds and nudes, so I decided to pick up these two MAC ones as they'd been on my wishlist for a while now. I can't wait to wear them out! I don't care that summer starts in two days, I would still wear Unknown Pleasures during this time of year. Wearing certain colours in certain seasons is boring! I absolutely adore the name of the lipstick too as Unknown Pleasures by Joy Division is one of my all time favourite albums.
I've always been curious to try out gel eyeliner as everyone says it's the easiest to use, but I kept putting it off because with pencil and liquid eyeliner, I didn't think I needed it. I kept thinking about it though and eventually I decided to get Blacktrack Fluidline by MAC. The make up artist recommended the 209 brush as opposed to the 210, which is really thin, so I'm looking forward to seeing how it applies. I know it'll take a lot of practice. I'm not very good at liquid eyeliner, but maybe gel will make it that little bit easier.
After browsing around the Chanel counter one day after work (a bad idea when you're trying to save money), I came across the nail polish, Lilac Sky, and I thought it was beautiful. When I got home, I looked at swatches online and decided I wanted it. I had been looking for a nice pastel purple nail polish, anyway. Buying Black Pearl nail polish and the eyeshadow was my friend's fault! We went shopping at Karrinyup Shopping Centre on our day off work and she somehow convinced me to get them too. She also convinced me to spend $140 on Christmas decorations (mind you, it was 30% off and I did use my staff discount!)... she just had this power over me! I don't regret it though. I love owning pretty things and I'm excited to decorate the Christmas tree!
Speaking of pretty things, I finally bought the Guerlain Météorites Perles that had been on my wishlist for ages. I bought these significantly cheaper on eBay with some money I had made selling my clothes online. This is the kind of luxury product worth splurging on. I mean, the packaging! So beautiful.
Well, that it's for today. I have a lot more haul posts coming up! I know it seems like all I do is shop, but it's just because I've been so busy these past couple of months, I don't get a chance to update often. I do save too, really!
I'm almost at 100 followers, which is amazing! I really want to update for you girls more often, but working in retail is exhausting during this time of year and my free time is quite limited. I am not going anywhere though, as there's so much I want to post about, and once I reach the three digits in followers, I'll definitely hold a contest of some sort!
