November Lust Have It!

Posted by Danae at 22:18 7 comments

So this month I was lucky enough to try out the November Lust Have It box! 
After seeing many disappointed people with their previous boxes, I think that this box was a great come back and a lot of other people did too, which you can see on the Facebook page, here.

I think this months box has great value for the price you pay, featuring a full size, not yet released mascara, I think this box is amazing! 

Onto the content: 

The bag I received is the blue bag. I believe there were only two bags this month, blue and purple. The blue bag had the content I wanted to receive so I am very happy that I got this one.

On the card in the bag, Lust have it says that this will be the last pop color makeup bag you will receive and that they will now be bringing in collectible bags.

This bag didn't worry me seeing as this is the first time I've ever tried Lust Have It, but I'm super excited for the collectible bags, too!

The first thing in the bag was these Face of Australia cleansing wipes.
I currently use the smart skin wipes and adore them, but I have never tried another brand, so I think these will be great. I will use them after I finish my current pack of wipes.

It's also good that they're alcohol free. These retail for $4.95 for 25 wipes. 

The next thing is the Davroe smooth senses straightening balm. There were multiple different Davroe products in this months boxes, and a lot of people seemed to have gotten ones they didn't want or need. I am unfortunately one of these people. I already have naturally straight hair so I won't be needing this.

I think it would be good for Lust Have It to have specific profiles for their members so they know which products would really benefit the person.

This retails for $20-$25.

The next thing is the Lomasi ginger lime body creme. I have never used a body creme before so this will be good to try out. You get 30ml and a full size of 236ml retails for $22.95.
The smell of this reminds me of lime and lemon fudge. 

The second last thing in the box are these Star&Rose Hologram tweezers. I personally do not use tweezers, but I think they may be helpful in my false eyelash application, so I will find a use for them regardless. I think it's cute that these kind of match my background.
These retail for $9.95

The last and most exciting thing in the box this month, is a full size Model Co fibre Lashxtend Mascara, which hasn't even hit the Australian Shelves yet.

It has a handy mirror on the side for easy application.

This is the wand. I think this mascara will be great and I'm very excited to try it out!
This retails for $28, that means you get almost double the amount of the whole box worth, in one product!

On that note, this months box was great value.
Although some of the products in here won't work for me, I am still very happy with what I received!
You can check out Lust Have It's website here, if you are interested.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! What did you receive in your Lust Have It box?

MUA Haul

Posted by Danae at 19:31 19 comments
So as most of you probably know, MUA recently had a sale for hitting 40,000 (I think) Facebook likes. They had 35% off all products and free shipping world wide.

After seeing multiple people talking about this UK brand and how great it was for the price, I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to jump on the band wagon and get a couple of products.

Here is an overview of everything I got:

The first things I got are two lipsticks in the colors: shade 15 juicy and shade 4.

Here is a swatch: Juicy is on top and shade 4 is on the bottom.
Shade 4 is extremely sheer and not very buildable. The swatch below took a lot of swipes to even be able to see the color. It is very glossy.
On the other hand juicy is very pigmented and quite creamy.
These are one pound each in the online store so I think these are worth a try.

The next thing I got is the glitter eyeliner in Iced. It is basically just a glitter eyeliner. I bought this because I originally had the BYS glitter liner but have run out. I know a lot of people don't like the look of glitter eyeliner but I personally think it adds a great touch to a lot of eye looks.

This retails for one pound also so definitely worth a try.
Here is a swatch of the glitter liner:

The next thing I got is the intense color eyeliner pencil in lovely lilac.
This also retails for one pound.

Here is a swatch:

The next thing I got is the undressed palette. This palette is supposed to be a dupe for the naked palette, which I do not have so I can't say but if you Google it multiple posts come up.

I think this is a gorgeous palette of colors and I am SO glad I picked it up. It retails for 4 pounds on the website.

The last thing I picked up was the MUA false lashes in Vixen.
These retail for 2 pounds on the website.

That concludes my post. All up for everything I got it only cost me $10 AUD.
This is super cheap for so many products, in comparison to prices in Australia.
I can't wait for the next MUA sale so I can pick some more stuff up!
Hope you guys enjoyed this post!
I also have a thrift (op-shop) haul coming up, as well as hopefully a November Lust have it unboxing when I receive my box so keep your eyes out for those! :)
Did you take advantage of this sale? Comment below.

Mini Haul! - Review included.

Posted by Danae at 02:35 20 comments
So yesterday I was having a -must buy- something kind of day, if you know what I mean. Being low on cash I only picked up some essence, but seeing as its one of my favorite brands I really didn't mind. I think I might start having to "Shopping my Stash" as I've seen some other Aussie beauty bloggers do recently too!

So as you can see its only 2 items, but I figured seeing as I haven't blogged in quite a few days, longer break in between than I usually have, I should post anyways. I've been quite busy but, also being new to the blogging community am finding it hard to figure out WHAT to post.

Some of the bloggers I'm following can seem to make a post out of almost anything so I think I'll have to try and learn their ways so I can upload every 2-3 days!

Anyways onto the haul!

So the first thing I got is the essence nude glam nail polish in cafe ole. They recently changed the packaging and the formula so I decided I would pick one up, I never had an essence nail polish so I figured if they had improved I may aswell try it out now.. Right? Right. I believe it was $2.75 which if I am correct is about 20c more expensive than before, which isn't a big deal in my opinion.

The next and last thing I got is the essence eye shadow brush. After trying out the essence smokey eyes brush and liking it quite a lot for the price paid ($2.55) I figured I would try this one out too. It's been disappearing from all the shelves in my target and priceline so I thought I'd better jump at the offer. (any reason to buy right? ;)). This one was also $2.55 so it's not like I was forking out much.

Anyways I have a mini review of the nail polish too.
I think it's a gorgeous color and I like the name too. Café olé. It painted on well but it was runny and was too streaky with one coat so I needed to use 2 or 3.

I didn't use topcoat because I wanted to see how it chipped on its own. I think it looks gorgeous on, nude, but just noticeably different to the skin color. I would have a photo of this on but I painted it last night when the lighting was awful and it's all chipped now.

I currently have 3 nails left unchipped on one hand, 4 on the other. It chipped really easily, one of the nails chipped an hour after I painted it on. Therefore on its own this would probably be a pass for me despite its gorgeous color, but I will definitely try it out again with a topcoat!

Au revoir!
