ASOS Cosmetics Haul for April, 2013

Last Thursday I placed two (because one would have made too much sense, Sophie) orders with ASOS. There's been a few things that I wanted to pick up from there for a while so I took the pay check from new job and got right to it! 

I placed the first order and then, after trying the Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation and realising I bought it in the wrong colour (click here to see my haul), I decided to place a second one. I also took that opportunity to pick something else up because I had to make it worth it, right? Right!

You probably don't want to know why I bought what I bought, just what I bought so, with that being said, let's get into it!

Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Luna and Nova
There are a lot of English YouTubers and bloggers that I really like and I don't think I've seen one that hasn't mentioned at least one of these products in recent months. I wanted to pick up a third colour, Celestial, but they were out of stock so I settled on two, Luna and Nova. I'm still playing around with them to try and determine the staying power etc but I'm enjoying themselves so far.
These were $7.16 each

Rimmel London ScandalEyes Shadow Stick in Bulletproof Beige 
I've been really impressed with a lot of Rimmel's stuff so, after hearing about these also, I decided to give one a try. This seems to be the only neutral colour in the line but that's okay!
This was $7.16

Rimmel London Kate Moss Lating Finish Lipstick in #016
This lipstick has been making the rounds in the blogisphere lately. My Priceline is always out of stock of this colour so I admitted defeat, said goodbye to the points and ordered it online. 
This was $8.75

Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranate 
I have one of these lip butters already, Quince, and I absolutely love it. It's amazing, especially before bed, but the tint was getting all over my pillowcase as it's perfect for before bed. I decided to pick up a more suitable colour and, even though it's not clear, it's a very sheer wash of colour. This is the product I placed the whole order for.
This was $12.76 

Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation in Ivory 
As I said, I picked this up because I initially bought the foundation in the wrong colour. I've since decided I don't really like the product but I'll give it another chance now I have the right shade!
This was $11.15

Korres Pomegranate Cleansing & Make Up Remover Wipes for Oily & Combination Skin
I recently ran out of my Clean & Clear Deep Action Cleansing Wipes so I decided to give these a try instead because why not. 
These were $11.16

Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Luna | Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer in  Nova | Rimmel London ScandalEyes Shadow Stick in Bulletproof Beige | Rimmel London Kate Moss Lating Finish Lipstick in #016 | Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranate

All in all, I'm really happy with my order. This has given me the opportunity to try a selection of products I've not yet tried, something which is always exciting. Stay tuned for reviews, as well as product comparisons and other exciting things. I have a lot of ideas at the moment. 

Have you received any hauls lately? What? Do you order much make up on ASOS? 

Always look your best,

  1. I'd love to hear a review on the Rimmel Shadow Stick when you get a chance to do it. I've seen them online and really want to pick some up :) Great Haul

    1. Thanks for the request! I'll be sure to add it to the list of products I need to review! I need to try it a bit more first, I think.. x

  2. I can't wait till the apocalips come here (hopefully they do).
    Lovely haul :) I love that Kate moss lipstick!

    1. I'm sure they will eventually. It just feels like it takes forever for anything to get to us! It's a beautiful colour. x

  3. Nice haul and the Apocalips are nice but I'm a bit disappointed that none of them are long-wearing!


    1. I feel the same way, Karen. They're not long wearing at all.. Little disappointing.. xx

  4. Lovely haul! I really want to try the Rimmel Apocolips, they look like really pretty colours. You have a great blog, following you now! xx

  5. I DID comment on this, but you deleted it by accident haha! I think I went on about the Korres Lip Butter? I can't really remember! I have the same one and I really like it :D it's the one I use before bed! Otherwise I have no idea what I was going on about :P
