EPIC Haul - Part Two - Myer, David Jones & Online

Welcome to Part Two of my EPIC haul!

This part features all the items I purchased from Myer, David Jones and some items purchased online that arrived whilst I was away. As I said in Part One, I know this is a lot of money to spend on make up but I work and I enjoy spending my hard earned money on something I love.

Now onto the good stuff...


I have fallen in love with MAC products lately. I don't think they are the absolute best out there but I do love the range of products and shades available. I also love the regular release of new products. I don't think I have ever read an Archie comic but the packaging and colours were too cute to resist. Some of the items here were purchased from MAC USA (thanks Rebecca!) and the Marilyn blush was from Jen's blog sale.

  • Face and Body Foundation in N1
  • Archie's Girls Lipsticks in
    • Betty Bright
    • Daddy's Little Girl
    • Girl Next Door
  • Frost Lipstick in Angel
  • Year of the Snake Beauty Powder in Shell Pearl
  • Archie's Girls Powder Blush in
    • Cream Soda
    • Prom Princess
  • Marilyn Monroe Powder Blush in Legendary
  • Archie's Girls Pearlmatte Face Powder in
    • Veronica's Blush
    • Flatter Me


This was my first visit to an Illamasqua counter and I was pretty excited! I think the Illamasqua counter may have the best atmosphere in all of Myer. Such friendly and helpful staff. I picked up a few items I have been interested in a while. My only concern is now I see the Skin Base foundation is very yellow - I am very pink. 

  • Cream Blusher in Rude
  • Skin Base Foundation in 3
  • Nail Varnish in Raindrops
  • Lipstick in Immodest
  • Cream Pigment in Hollow
  • Blush-Up Brush

Giorgio Armani

I received excellent service at the Giorgio Armani counter at Myer. The woman who served me was very friendly and knowledgeable. So much so when trying out the foundation shades she got me to go stand outside (in Bourke St Mall) with a mirror to see which shade suited in natural light. Yeah I probably looked like an idiot but at least I go the right shade. She also gave me some samples and a little clutch/pouch. 
  • Maestro Fusion Make Up in 5
  • Lip Maestro in 504

Clarins & Lancome

The Clarins palette I actually purchased on eBay from one of my trusted sellers. It arrived whilst I was away. As part of their recent collection, Lancome released two very pretty blushers. I however showed some self control and only purchased one. I wish I had purchased the other too now. 

  • Clarins Eye Quartet Mineral Palette in 09 Odyssey
  • Lancome Blush in Love in 10 Peche Joue-Joue

Too Faced & Hourglass

As soon as I saw the promotional images for the Too Faced blush I knew I would own it. It is just too gorgeous to resist. I feel in love with the Hourglass lip product when I saw ViviannaDoesMakeup wear it in one of her videos. 

  • Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Candy Glow
  • Hourglass Opaque Rouge in Muse

Dior & YSL

At Myer I received fantastic service at the YSL counter pity I can't say the same about the Dior counter. It was complete polar opposites. At YSL the woman who served me was so friendly and helpful, at Dior it was like I was an inconvenience. 

  • Dior Nail Glow - Instant French Manicure Effect Whitening Nail Care
  • YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in 6 

Tom Ford

I had no intention of purchasing anything at the Tom Ford counter before visiting it but once I was there I just had to get something. I was also served by a lovely lady there too who wasn't even the Tom Ford make up artist. 
  • Cheek Color in 07 Narcissist 



I visited the Burberry counter twice whilst away. The first time they had an offer of a free eye pencil with purchase but they didn't have any left (why not take the sign down then?) and the second time they had an excellent GWP with purchase of two products - I couldn't resist. 
  • Light Glow Natural Blush in 9 Coral Pink
  • Complete Eye Palette in 3 Pale Nude
  • Lip Velvet in
    • 307 Rose Pink
    • 308 Pink Azalea
  • Gift With Purchase containing:
    • Lip Mist in 202 Copper
    • Eye Brush 10 Defining Liner
    • Eye Definer in 3 Midnight Ash

So there is Part Two of my Epic Haul. I must say I had an absolute blast whilst shopping. I think I will be good for a while now - save some money... I will try anyway.
