US Makeup Haul

Hi Ladies,

I am so sorry I haven't been posting in a while, as I mentioned in earlier posts I am currently undertaking a Cert 2 in Retail Makeup & Skincare... assignments (theory) is all done now and I am 3 weeks of qualified!!
I think I may even post some pictures of my work :) If you are interested please let me know!!

To The haul, I recently had some cosmetics posted to me from the US..... let's just get straight into it!

As you all know Laura Mercier is one of my favourite cosmetic brands however I always felt their lipsticks lacked the shades I like (neutrals!!) They have recently released a new formula called Creme Smooth Lip colours and I am in love! I purchased Peche' and it is amazing! Now everything in their range is awesome! The Lip liner is also from Laura Mercier (my favourite brand for lip liners!!) and is in Carnation another must!
The Bobbi Brown Lipstick is in Pale Mauve and I haven't decided if I like it or not yet.. will keep you posted!

Lorac is a brand that I cannot find anywhere in Australia! however the You tube world raves about it! I have wanted the Pro Pallet since it first was released however I wasn't willing to pay $80 + on Ebay, The reality is: This palette would be worth $80... all the shadows are buttery soft and so pigmented! I also picked up two blushes Exposed (which is a cult fave) and velvet rope... They are nice however I think I need to play with them more to see if I am in love... At the back is the Tantalizer duo, a Matte bronzer and shimmery highlight, truth be told I haven't actually used this yet!


Next is Stila, Stila is another favourite brand of mine :) I love the smudge stick eye pencils so decided to pick up the seeing stars set which includes five! (I literally paid less than the cost of one here in Australia!!!)
eye shadows in: Pigalle and Cloud and Stila Lip Glaze in Watermelon.. the lip glaze smells amazing, looks amazing on, but the packaging is killing me!!! It leaks, not out of the tube just all in the clear lid and looks terrible..

Last but not least..
The Too Faced Return Of Sexy Palette, All Images I searched of this palette were amazing however upon receiving it I realised there was a reason why I didn't buy it when I was in Sydney, all shadows are glitter bombs! every single shade! I haven't tried the Palette yet but when I do I'll be sure to fill you in!
The yellow brush down the bottom is by a company called Bdellium Tools, this is the 780 Brush it is a pencil brush, great quality, super soft!!
Finally the GEM of the haul is the Nars Blush in Gina OH MY GOD!! This blush was made for me, it is probably the most flattering shade I have ever worn!!

That's it :) 
Please let me know if you have tried any of these comments and how you use them!



  1. The LORAC PRO is my most reached for palette right now :) My NAKED palettes are gathering dust as of speaking :) Great choices!!

    1. Hi Sharina,
      the Lorac is crazy pigmented isn't it...
      Maybe I should do a palette overview??!
      I think you should get the Stila In The Light Palette, you will love it.

  2. That's a brilliant haul, I love MAC, Bobbi Brown and other US cosmetics. I have to try Laura Mercier once as everyone mentions how great the brand is, xoxo.
