What the postman brought me today... ASOS Haul!

I love getting presents in the mail from myself to myself. It's like Christmas, especially when you've bought so many things and you forget, so the element of surprise is there when opening the "presents". I mean err.. I never forget what I buy...

Anyway, the postman brought me three ASOS parcels. I might have went a bit nuts when ASOS had 25% off for students. I was trying to control myself and only order one thing at one time, as I only get a new code once per hour. But that failed epically and I ended up ordering three times...

First order was a Too Faced Love Sweet Love set. Price = GBP 30.40 after my 25% discount
Makeup Bag which contained all the good stuff!
 The contents are:
  • Exclusive Multi-Purpose Face Brush
  • Deluxe Shadow Insurance Eye Shadow Primer
  • Deluxe Primed & Poreless Face Primer
  • Deluxe Perfect Eyes Eyeliner
  • Lashgasm Mascara
  • Exclusive Makeup Bag
  • Exclusive Love Sweet Love Face Palette
Second order was a Jemma Kid Strike a Post set. I am actually giving away a part of this set to someone who I'm blog swapping with, so no pictures of the that part, and neither will I state the price I paid (although, I'm sure you can look if up if you really want).

I saved the in-vogue perfect blush in rodeo drive for myself. 

It looks lighter in real life than in the picture above. I think it's more true to colour in the first picture. I have never tried any Jemma Kid products before, but have read great reviews, so I'm quite excited to try this blush out.

Third order was a Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Lipstick in 08. I paid GBP 4.39 after discount.

I am loving this colour!  I have a few swatches for you...
Swatch on my arm... I swear it's not that red in real life.. my camera sucks :(
Bare lips
Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate 08
As you can see, it's a my lips but better (MLBB) lippie! I LOVE finding MLBB. Formula is great too, it's very smooth to apply and it has a scent that reminds me of cherries. So far (I've only been wearing it for about 15 minutes) it doesn't feel drying, which is great because I normally lay my lipstick on top of lip balms to prevent my lips from getting too dry, and I've applied this lippie straight on my bare lips.

Anyway, that's my ASOS haul. I'm still expecting a gazillion other packages, so you'll most likely see more hauls on here soon.


  1. I love the first bit of this post! That's so me! I also get suprised by things I forget I've bought haha so funny! Love that Too Faced pack. I think I'll be grabbing that next time there is a sale :)

  2. Haha I was cleaning my coffee table today and I found a blush from about 2 weeks ago that I completely forgot I bought. You are not alone!!!
    Keep us updated on how you are liking the too faced products :D

    1. Hahahaha! Us crazy beauty bloggers stimulating the worldwide economy. We should get a tax break from this! The world would be doomed without us!

  3. omg that Too Faced kit looks gorgeous!
    Great haul :)

  4. Haha I always forget what I buy and when packages turn up I have to pretend I know what it is or people think I shop too much :P

    I completely forgot that ASOS stock Too Faced.. there's a palette I've been dying to get! :(

    1. Oh no! Hopefully they'll have a good sale on soon!

      LOL I have to remember what I buy when the bf is around.. He'll be all up in my grill asking me questions about my purchases and whether or not they're "justifiable"... pfft.. makeup is ALWAYS justifiable...

    2. I agree with you! I send a lot of stuff to my boyfriends house so that my family doesn't have to deal with the crazy amount of packages I get.. I sent your swap package out today and I had to tell him it was a "birthday" present and he offered to drive me to your house to drop it off... "to save money" :P

  5. Oh my goodness, that Too Faced kit looks awesome. Want. Neeeeeeed.
