What the postman brought me this week

Hope everyone had a good Christmas. Sorry I have been MIA lately. I had to go to Tasmania for the bf's mum's surprise birthday party.

Anyway, this is what I received this week...

1. Femme Fatale Cosmetics - $28.70 + $8 postage
I purchased seven mini nail polishes and Femme Fatale sent me some lollies as well!


From left to right, Winter Hyacinth, A Frosty Shake, Crimson Acolyte. I wore Crimson Acolyte on my nails for Christmas after much deliberation! It's SO pretty. I will have to do a NOTD with it some day as the nail polish has worn off on the tips already :(

The last four polishes I purchased were (L-R) Suspended Starlight, Hydraxia, Quivering Heart and Ebon Roses. Absolutely love all these polishes!

 2. Tarte Baby It's Bold Outside - USD$35 + $10 postage
Purchased this from ebay. Am well aware that I paid more for this than what the seller would have paid for at Sephora or Tarte but I think they're so worth it considering they're all full sized and retail for about $25 each. The colours received from left to right are Tarte elite LipSurgence lip tint, Tarte escape LipSurgence natural lip luster, Tarte sweet LipSurgence lip luster, Tarte exotic LipSurgence lip luster, and Tarte buff LipSurgence lip luster. I didn't do swatches of them, as I'm thinking about giving some away in a giveaway when I hit 350 followers (ONE more to go!!!).

3. Fresh Sugar Kisses Mini Lip Duo - USD$7.99 + USD$5.95 postage
I also purchased this from ebay. I received one when my sister's friend went to the states with my Sephora card. Absolutely LOVE these lip balms. They're so moisturizing and they are perfect underneath lipsticks.

4. Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil (50ml/1.7oz) - USD$24.49 + USD$10.78 postage
Yet another purchase from ebay. I read some great reviews on this before purchasing the biggest bottle as it had the best value for money. I've only just used it about an hour ago, and it feels quite oily on the face. Although having said that, the oiliness have decreased since application. This might be good for really dry skin.

5. Lisa Blue Swimwear (Ozsale) - $15
This doesn't quite fit me as well as I hoped it did. It's a size XXS (AU 6) if anyone is interested, let me know. Great for someone who is "blessed" and skinny.

6. Lush - $56.57 including postage
 I took advantage of their Christmas sale and got a whole heap of goodies.

I purchased Ponche Shower Gel (250g) for $7.48, Happy Happy Joy Joy Conditioning Hair Perfume (100g) for $13.95 (this wasn't part of their Christmas sale), and Retread Hair Conditioner (245g) for $23.50 (this wasn't part of their Christmas sale either). They all smell pretty good. Especially love the Ponche shower gel.

I also purchased popcorn lip scrub (20g) for $4.98 and North Pole Soap (100g) for $2.95. The North Pole Soap smells pepperminty, which is quite refreshing.

In addition to all this, I received my catch of the day order which consisted of 3 surge protected power boards, which isn't all that interesting nor are they for me. Hence no pictures.

That's all I received from Mr Postman this week... The LAST week of 2012! I will be working on my "What Santa brought me for Christmas" next and it should be up tomorrow!

      I did a Lush order because I knew I wouldnt be able to get to a Lush store in time to take advantage of the sale. I normally am too tight to pay for postage though. :P

I was looking at the Lush xmas sale online and I was hoping that the christmas gift set was going to be available, but unfortunately it didn't - what a shame!
