MYER Collective Beauty Haul

One of the dangers of my job is how I get to and from it. To get to work I catch two trains, both of which arrive and depart from the city. The city is where I manage to do a lot of damage when it comes to shopping. There's a MYER, David Jones (I tend to shop at MYER 'cos I love those Myer One points!), Kit Cosmetics, Mecca Cosmetica and more! Being that I catch the train, on my way home I can either get off two stops before the city to swap trains, meaning that my trip home is slightly reduced, or I can keep going into the city to do some retail therapy.. I'm sure you know which option I prefer.

Over the past few weeks I've picked up a few bits 'n' pieces and I thought it was probably time to show them to you all! 

Before I get started I feel the need to apologise for the photo you're about to see. I had a much better one taken but realised I accidentally left out a one of the products and, by the time I took another, the lighting was a lot worse. It'll definitely do but!
From MAC I picked up MAC Brush Cleanser and MAC Studio Fix Powder in N2. I'm normally colour matched to NC20 for this powder but am really liking this shade. It's not as yellow and I think it's a much better match! When I use the MAC Brush Cleanser by following the instructions on the back, I'm not the biggest fan of it. When I use it to spot clean my brushes, it's great! 

I recently got a sample of the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in 2N1 Desert Beige and I'm pretty impressed by it! I like the coverage of the foundation and I think it has nice staying power but I'm not entirely sure about the oil control. I purchased it anyway because I'm looking for a long wearing foundation to wear to work and, at this stage, this is the best I've tried. If you read my review of it, you'll know it's no secret that I absolutely love the Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara and, just as I suspected, I gave in to the huge price point. Given that I bought two products from Estee Lauder, I was entitled to a GWP (gift with purchase). That's always a bonus, right?

One of my favourite parts of MYER is Kit Cosmetics. There's two Kit Cosmetics stores in the city but I always opt for the one in MYER. Not only will I earn Myer One points for every dollar I spend but I absolutely love the women that work there. They know me by name. Wait, is that a bad thing? Anyway, we all have those products that we really want but can't justify purchasing it, right? That's what the Soap & Glory Cream and Soaper Set is to me. I mean, do I really need this? Yes. This set comes in with a 250mL bottle of Wash Your Hands Of It hand wash and Hand Food hand cream in a little 'sink side caddy'. I decided to finally pick this up so I could sit the hand wash on my sink at my party and have the epic bottle of Hand Food next to my desk in my blog room. I also took the opportunity to buy a new tube of Hand Food because I hate being without hand cream! Finally, on one of my many trips, I bought the Too Faced Glamour Dust in Nude Beam. I really want to recreate the New Years Eve look I posted for NYE last year with a more neutral glitter. 

So that's everything I've recently purchased from MYER. Please a collective haul an, therefore, it wasn't all purchased at once!

  1. I want to test soap and glory

  2. I love the MAC Brush Cleanser for spot cleaning. Put a spray nozzle on it. It doesn't work for me when I want to clean my foundation brush (Sigma F80) but it works fine with eye other brush. Don't use it with your Essence brushes as the colour will run. It's also quite cheap for $20 in comparison to other brush cleansers available at Priceline.

    Also, what do you think of the Estee Lauder Double Wear? The commercials make me want to get it, but does it really last all day?
