Spontaneous shopping trips are the best, right? | Another Haul

On Tuesday after work I took a detour to the city and did a bit of retail therapy. I wanted to pick up a few new bits, as well as stock up on some things I'll soon run out of. Oh, I just love to shop.

The first place I went was LUSH. I picked up a Green Fun for my three year old nephew who absolutely loves this "bath play dough" and, for myself, I got a small bottle of the Tea Tree Water. I used to use this all the time but I haven't in ages and wanted to give it another shot.

My next stop was, of course, MAC. I don't really go into the city without at least swinging by MAC for a swatch or two.. This time I picked up a new bottle of MAC Cleanse Off Oil and Brush Cleanser, two products I reach for all the time. I also got a sample of the Pro Longwear Concealer in NW20 as I've heard amazing things about it and so far I'm really enjoying it.

Lastly, I had to swing by Kit Cosmetics. There's two stores in the city but the Myer one is my store of choice. Not only do I get Myer One points when I shop there, but the staff are incredible (is it bad that a couple know my name? Shopaholic or just good customer service?). I bought a 500mL bottle of Soap & Glory's Clean on Me. It's a beautiful body wash and I couldn't believe the  $12.95 price tag! I'm quite impressed with the Bare Minerals Original Foundation I have but it makes my oily skin look quite shiny so I grabbed the Matte Foundation formula in Fair and I'm already completely in love. Finally, I repurchased my beloved Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine because I felt incomplete without it.

Initially, I went to Kit to pick up a few bits from the Kardashian Beauty (isn't it called Khroma Beauty in the US?) line but one of the products I wanted wasn't in stock yet so I didn't get anything. Instead I was given a sample of the Kardashian Beauty K24 Golden Makeup Primer Gelee. She said this was like a primer mask so you apply it, let it set for about 5 minutes and wash it off. Who knows..

So that's everything I picked up. It's not heaps but it's a fair amount of damage, especially considering I did it all in about half an hour. Should I be impressed? I'm not sure..

Always look your best,

  1. Woo impulse shopping! ;) The mecca cosmetica here doesn't stock soap and glory in store which is annoying.

    1. Impulsive shopping is the best, isn't it? It's also the most expensive I reckon, ahaha. Oops! Have you tried Kit Cosmetics? My Mecca doesn't either. I think it's only Kit (and maybe Mecca Maxima) stores that sell it. X

  2. What under $13?! Was it on sale?!!

    1. I know! Soooo cheap. Nope, it wasn't even on sale. I think $12.95 for 500mL rivals 'drugstore' prices, don't you? X

  3. bath Play dough???
    ive never heard of that before but it sounds like so much fun for little kids

    1. It's basically malleable soap and, yep, kids absolutely love it! X

  4. Wow the body wash is such a affordable price! :)

    1. I know! $12.95 for 500mL is basically drugstore prices in my opinion! X
