Oops I Went Shopping...


Yesterday, I went to Bendigo. Living in a small town I love the opportunity to get out of it and do some shopping where there is more than 5 shops. I thought I would share the beauty related items I purchased with you. 



One of the first thing I picked up was the Hairhouse Warehouse Platinum Blitz Box. The pack I picked up contains; Goldwell Rich Repair Shampoo, Goldwell Rich Repair Conditioner, Goldwell Rich Repair 60 sec Treatment, RPR Make Me Shine Spray, a travel crimper, a shower comb and a $20.00 off any salon service voucher. This box is worth $130 but retails for only $29.95 making it a massive bargain!

I already have the shampoo, conditioner, treatment and shower comb in my shower. I probably won't use the crimper (who crimps their hair any more?!?) or the voucher. Only because I am rarely near a salon (plus I am not going to the hairdressers at the moment). 




At Priceline I picked up two of Garnier's newest products, the Dark Spot Corrector and the new BB Cream. I couldn't resist the moisturiser as it came with a free soft toy Dalmation (so cute). I have heard great things about the new BB Cream. Even though it is for oily/combination skins I have been told it also works well on normal skin. It is a completely different formula from the original, so hopefully I like it more than the original. 




I also picked up a couple of things from Sally Hansen at Priceline. I purchased a Complete Salon Manicure polish in 220 Cafe Au Lait which looks like a lovely neutral. I also picked up the new Salon Manicure Cuticle Eraser & Balm

Because I spent over $20.00 I qualified for a GWP that includes a Crackle Overcoat in 05 Distressed Denim, the Double Duty Strengthening Base & Top Coat, a Coarse Nail File and a cosmetic bag. 




This year is Australis's 25th birthday (Happy Birthday!) and to celebrate they have released some limited edition products. I picked up the Nail Glitter Top Coat in Fairy Bread and the Colour Inject Mineral Lipstick in Lick the Icing. I also qualified for another GWP! This time it is a pair of fold able ballet flats in a pouch. I got the size 9-11 and was surprised that they actually fit my size 11 feet. I am planning on keeping these in the car in case of emergency (ie. painful high heels!). 




I ran out of dry shampoo during the weekend and decided to pick up another Batiste Fresh Dry Shampoo one as I have found it to be the best. This time I am trying the Fresh scent as I find the Blush a little overpowering. 

I picked up another of my favourite Artiste Brush Cleaner as I am starting to run low and cannot live without it now. It is just so handy. 

As I was heading to the register I spotted the most adorable nail stickers. They are Kiss Nail Dress ones that are limited edition for Halloween. I couldn't resist the black and orange back grounds that have cats (cats!) on them. Super cute!




Revlon recently released a new collection for Spring or Summer (not sure). I was so excited to see it included three Photoready Cream Blushes as I am obsessed with them at the moment. I picked up the two brighter shades 200 Flushed and 300 Coral Reef. 




At Myer I picked up one of the new shades of Clinique Chubby Sticks. I chose the shade 15 Pudgy Peony and it is a gorgeous bright pink. I am in love with it! I used a $20.00 MyerOne gift card towards it too, making it even more awesome. 




I went into The Body Shop with the intention of only buying one of these Lip & Cheek Domes but... the sales assistant told me they would only be on sale for another week so I had to get them both. I did mention before how obsessed I am with cream blushes. The shades are 20 Pinch Me Pink and 21 Crazy for Coral. 




When I was in Target, I was extremely excited to find 3 clearance bins. I spent a good 10 minutes digging through and managed to find 5 Bourjois Powder Blushes. They were only $4.00 each!!! That is 5 blushes for the cost of one at full price! OMG! It was worth getting my hands covered in make up. I wish I had had more time to dig through. 


What have you purchased lately? Any great bargains? Tried any of these products?
