Beauty Haul

So I was at Chadstone today, and it just so happened Priceline had a 20% off sale on all Cosmetics and Skincare, so I bought a few things that I wanted to try (even though afterwards I found out the brands would have better sales on later on in the week). I also went to Lush for the first time after hearing so many great things, and let me tell you, I am a convert!

The Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lipgloss in Lambada. I've been super impressed with the new range of Australis products, so decided to try what I thought would be neutral lipgloss. From what I can tell, it's a creamy baby pink that I wouldn't usually wear (mostly due to a mix between a class in my weirdly coloured Italian skin, and it's baby pink), but I figure that a light enough coat would be a nicely tinted casual lipgloss. It also has a smell that reminds me of apricots, but its not an over-the-top smell, and I actually really like it.

The Covergirl Lipslicks in Demure is in the form of a lipstick, but has the wear of a very sheer gloss. It's a colour that isn't a stain, but provides a dash of darker colour to my lips, and I'm really looking forward to trying this out.

The next thing I purchased was a Face of Australia Eye Primer in Matte. My camera couldn't capture the true colour of the product, which is an off white, and has no shimmer in it (FOA have a shimmer primer too). It is a thick, creamy consistency, and I'm also looking forward to trying this.

After Priceline, i went to Lush, and even though at first I was put off by the abundance of smells, after browsing all the products, I fell in love with the place! I had to restrict myself and settled on the Cupcake Face Mask, which is supposed to be good for oily skin (and smells like chocolate!), and the Sea Vegetable Soap, which is supposed to be uplifting. At the moment, they have a wide variety of Christmas products in, so I can't wait to go back to do my christmas shopping and bag me some goodies too!

Have you done any good hauls lately? Any new products you recommend?
Love Gianna
