What the postman brought me this week

I was really hoping an order that I made on behalf of the BF for my V-day present would arrive before (or even on) Valentine's Day, but that never happened. :( Fingers crossed it'll come next week!

Anyway, I only received a few orders this week. This is what Mr. Postman brought me...

1. Beautyheaven
I rarely get sent anything from BeautyHeaven, so this bottle of eye make-up remover was a complete surprise! Have used it to remove my layers of mascara a couple of times already, and it is quite impressive considering there is no oil!

2. Tarte Cosmetics via PriceUSA - AUD$86.30
I purchased Tarte Glow Your Way to Gorgeous Amazon Essentials kit in Medium for $49, Amazonian clay BB tinted moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 sunscreen in Agent 04 for $36, and I received a sample with my order - Amazonian clay BB illuminating moisturizer in champagne.

The  Glow Your Way to Gorgeous kit contains:
  • Maracuja Creaseless Concealer in Medium (full size)
  • SmolderEYES Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner in Charcoal (full size)
  • Amazonian Clay Cream Eyeshadow in Shimmering Moss (full size)
  • LipSurgence lip luster in Delighted (full size)
  • Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in Charisma (full size)
  • Lights, Camera, Lashes! 4-in-1 mascara (full size)
  • Shadow brush
  • Blush brush
  • Makeup bag
I think the jam packed makeup bag is SO worth the $49 for the amount of full size products!

 I haven't actually used this Amazonian Clay BB tinted moisturizer yet, so I can't say much about it...

I was going to use this a few days ago, and I read the bottle and got seriously confused by the name of it.. "Illuminating serum". I forgot that it's meant to be a moisturizer and didn't know what to do with it, so I didn't end up using it!

3. Essie via Ozsale - AUD$30 including delivery
I seriously think I need to go for some nail polish rehab. I have FAR too many nail polishes, but I love every single one!

The colours that I purchased from top to bottom, left to right are:
Lady Like, In Stitches, Lovie Dovie, Cascade Cool, and Wife Goes On.

I have a NOTD coming up featuring Wife Goes On, so keep a look out for it!

4. Sheridyn Fisher Swimwear - AUD$38.82 including delivery
I promised myself that this would be the last pair of swimmers that I'd purchase for AT LEAST 6 months considering I rarely go to the beach. Damn you cancer!!! Anyway, I own a pair of Sheridyn swimmers prior to purchasing this one, and I absolutely loved it, so I purchased another since it was on special. The specials are still running, there are other styles available too!

That's it for this week!

In other news:
  1. Being a completely indecisive person, I need some help here. I've got four packages sitting at the HopShopGo warehouse in the states, and I'm faced with two options in regards to delivery. I can get it shipped to Singapore or to me, in Australia. Shipping to Singapore is about USD$20 cheaper, but I won't be able to get my hands on it till I go back in May. WHAT DO I DOOO?!?!
  2. I've just realised that I might have gone overboard with purchasing Tarte cosmetics (as well as other things...). Would anyone be interested in purchasing some from me via a blog sale?


  1. The swimwear is gorgeous!

    I've had my eye on the simple eye makeup remover for a while now, would love to see a review on it if you have time :D
