On Tuesday, my Mum, Nan and I made a day trip to Mildura. It was an almost 7 hour round trip, normally we wouldn't do that in a day but this was exceptional circumstances.
We used to have some lovely neighbours Joan & John and a few years ago they moved to Mildura from Donald. Sadly Joan has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and we wanted to make sure we saw her again. When they were our neighbours they were both fantastic when my Mum wasn't well. Joan used to always be making meals and wonderful cakes too, just to help out and John used to drive my Mum to appointments when needed. They are just a really lovely couple and in their late 70's you can still see how much they love each other. It is horrible to see what cancer is doing to Joan.
We went and visited them as soon as we got to Mildura for a while but Joan needed a rest so we went to the shops and such for while before visiting again and then heading home. We didn't get home til about 9.45pm - it was a long emotional day.
I love going to Chemist Warehouse, they have some fantastic bargains. This is a perfect example of that! I picked up the Guerlain Terracotta Mineral Flawless Bronzing Powder in 01 Light for only $20.00! No, I did not need another bronzer considering the fact I rarely wear it but at that price I could not resist (yes I have a problem, I know). This is a loose bronzing powder and it comes with a super cute little kabuki brush. This appears to be a very pale bronzer so maybe it will be my perfect bronzer...
At Target I picked up another couple of Essence products. The display did not have a lot of stock but was atleast it was clean and tidy. I chose The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 2 Blush in 01 Renesmee Red as I don't have any red toned blushes.
I thought the Silky Touch Blush in 30 Secret It-Girl was a gorgeous pale peach that I had to have. I was really excited to see one of the Ready For Boarding Lip & Cheek Cremes tucked away in the display. It hadn't been touched either! It is the shade 02 Beauty on Tour. I also picked up the Kajal Pencil in 19 All I Want as I have heard it is a really good flesh tone pencil for the waterline.
I picked up three of the Loreal Color Riche Nail Polishes at Target. I would have gotten more because at the checkout I realised they were on special! I picked the shades 306 - Sex on the Peach (LOVE the name), 619 Santorini Lagoon and 811 Magic Croisette (which was actually on clearance for $2.88). If I like these I imagine I will be purchasing more, the colour range is amazing.
I was excited to see the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains on display. I picked up just one shade 015 Cherish which is a gorgeous pink. You can read my original review here.
I also managed to find another shade from the Face of Australia Pastels Nail Enamel Collection. This is the shade Once in a Blue Moon. Hopefully I will be able to find the other shades, I only have 4 of the collection.
So there is another haul from me, I hope you aren't sick of them. If you are please tell me! I have a couple to come in the next week or two...
What have you hauled lately? Picked up any bargains?
I'm so jealous of the ready for boarding lip & cheek creme! I wanted one but the ones at target had fingermarks all over them. I have no idea why though.. there was a really obvious tester in front of them all..ReplyDelete
Hope you put up swatches! :)
I was so excited when I found it, I looked at another Target a while ago and they were all ruined :(Delete
Nice haul :D what a bargain on that bronzer!ReplyDelete
I know! The price is really the only reason I bought it, I can't resist that a bargain, even if I don't need itDelete
Great haul - I love the L'Oreal polishes!ReplyDelete
I can't wait to try them, there is so many gorgeous shades!Delete
Great haul! The bronzers an amazing bargain and those L'Oreal polishes look so pretty.ReplyDelete
I'm jealous you found a clean and tidy Essence stand. A new Target opened a few weeks ago in my town and the Essence stand is already a disaster area.
It is a pity they aren't kept organised. I think possibly because it is a lower cost brand they don't bother with keeping it looking good and well stocked.Delete
I have the same shopping problem as you! I don't wear much bronzers, but have too many to count! Same goes for eyeshadows...ReplyDelete
Glad I am not the only one who does this! hahaDelete
