After Christmas shopping.

Yesterday I did a little after Christmas. I didn't go mad and spend ridiculous amounts on the Boxing Day/Christmas 'sales', I just wanted to spend the vouchers I'd received for Christmas. 

For Christmas I received two vouchers, a $40.00 Napoleon Perdis voucher and a $50.00 Coles Myer voucher (requested by me to purchase MAC products). 

Described by MAC as 'champagne with gold and white pearl"
Described by MAC as 'soft muted gold beige taupe'
If you read a recent post I uploaded you'll know how much I love MAC's Bare Study Paint Pot, described as 'champagne with gold and white pearl' by the MAC website. I've wanted this for the longest time (or since I got the sample) but I haven't been able to buy it due to Project Pan. I finally bought it today and you have no idea how excited I am. Yesterday I also bought myself my very first MAC eyeshadow and, again, I'm so excited. This eyeshadow, Wedge, was recommended to me by the MAC make up artist when I asked for a matte brown eyeshadow that would be perfect for my crease. I can't wait to use Bare Study and Wedge together, and I think they'll make the perfect everyday eye. All up these two MAC products we $68.00 ($33 for the shadow and $35 for the Paint Pot). I was able to use my $50.00 voucher and only had to pay the excess of $18.00. 
It was very hard for me to decide what to buy for myself from Napoleon Perdis. I thought about purchasing Camera Finish, their pressed powder, but I'm happy with the powder I'm using so there's no need to replace it. Instead, I opted for a lipstick. Since using up both my MAC lipsticks in Hue, I've been on the lookout for a new perfect everyday lip colour. In the end I settled on a lipstick from their Divine Godess Lipstick collection, Hess. I'm terrible at explaining the colour of products so you're better off looking at the photos above, sorry. This lipstick was $35.
After spending all my vouchers, my sister and I decided to go to Typo. Who doesn't LOVE Typo? Stationery is amazing, especially when it's cute! Anyway, I bought two things from Typo and managed to find my only bargain of the day. 
First off, I managed to find this super cute tea towel for my other sister. She loves ANYTHING with a cherry print on it so I instantly thought of this when I saw her. This tea towel was on sale for $5.00 (originally $10). When I went to pay it scanned through for $4.00. Score!
When I saw these pen holders I nearly died. Yes, died. I've been using glasses to store my make up brushes but these were so perfect that I had to buy them. Not only did I buy them, but so did my sister. She'd just been telling me that she wanted to set her make up brushes like mine so it was perfecting timing. These pen cups were $4.95 each and also came in white.

Anyway ladies, that's all I've bought since Christmas. I've made a few online purchases but I'll reveal them later. If you've done any post Christmas/Boxing Day shopping, comment on this post. I'd love to read about your purchases and bargains.

Always look your best,

  1. Why does the NP lipstick spell 'divine' incorrectly on the package?
