August Beauty Haul Post *image heavy*

Australis - NUDIST eye shadow palette
The poor girl version of the Urban Decay NAKED palette, maybe?

Hi! Welcome to my August beauty haul post~

It seems August was a good month for me, beauty-wise. There were quite a number of sales and clearances happening, so I managed to pick up some interesting products to try for cheap. And for once, this beauty haul is a more a mix of Asian, Australian and US brands :)

I tried to be good, and only made 2 small online orders last month - but that probably meant I spent more in stores instead, to sate my shopping thirst...

Australis Make Up Finishing Spritz 
Maybelline New York Baby Lips Pink Glow - Baby Pink
Cute packaging, cheap price - how can I resist?
Skinfood Milkshake Point Make Up Remover
It's a cute remover - gotta shake it till its frothy~
Etude House Happy Teatime Aloe Tea Cleansing Cream
My Etude House obsession continues!
Kuan Yuan Lian Cucumber Water (toner)
Really gentle, simple toner
Yanwalli Toner
Another toner, this one has whitening properties
My Beauty Diary Orange Blossom & White Lotus Moisturising Mist
Cute, but kinda small, face mist from Sasa 
Face of Australia Primer
Hate the packaging, but hey, it's oil free, and a 3 in 1 product
Loreal Elvive Restoring Treatment
On special for $4!
My aunty swears by it, so I'm gonna try it~

My hair is so dry lately :(
Bloom Mineral Foundation - Parisian Princess
From $34.95 to $5
Bloom - Prep and Prime Primer
Bloom Foundation and Concealer Brush

Can you believe that I picked up this brush and the primer (encased in a black mesh carry bag) for a measly $5? I actually went back to pick up another set, once I saw that the brush seems like reasonably good quality. The pack normally retails for $39.95

Bloom Cosmetics is an Australian owned brand, which I've never really paid attention to, until I popped into Target and saw all of its stock on clearance. Apparently Bloom is heading purely online soon, so it was a good opportunity for me to try another local brand (at bargain prices). 

Covergirl eye sticks - silver, gold
$0.86 each
Covergirl 4 kit shadows - Dynamite Drama
$1.00 - what a bargain!
Maybelline eyeshadow

If you like, you can make a request in the comments section for a particular product you'd like to see a review on first. Though I still have a few reviews to write up for last month's haul post to get through. Ahem, so many products, so little time >_<

Anyway, thanks for reading!

I wanna know, what sort of beauty goodies did you buy this month? Or, what's on your list to buy this month? 

Just a quick reminder - my giveaway ends in about 2 days, so get in quick for a chance to win some goodies~



  1. Woah! What a MASSIVE haul you've got there! :o and at good prices as well!

  2. I would like to see reviews on:
    Etude House Happy Teatime Aloe Tea Cleansing Cream,
    My Beauty Diary Orange Blossom & White Lotus Moisturising Mist

  3. crazy how much neutral palettes (with even similar names lol) are out now after urban decay's hit with the naked palette! :o I've never seen that baby lips glow by maybelline! and omg, if etude house is easily accessible here i would probably end up wasting money in buying some of their collections all because of the cute packaging LOL


  4. Such a lovely haul!!! Some of the deals are really good ^-^ I mean... if you get something for really cheap it is saving money in a way right? I haven't seen the pink glow version of the baby lips!! I want one too~~~ I have heard a lot of good things about the cucumber water but I haven't seen it anywhere before.

  5. Omg! Soooo many products!!! The nudist palette looks nice! Can't wait for a review of some of the products. I have the Skinfood Makeup Remover too, it feels so nice.

  6. I'm planning to buy Maybelline pink lip balm. I love it's look, really cute. The beauty products you have are a great find. Thanks for sharing this. I might buy one of those nowadays. =)

  7. they don't sell covergirl in the uk:(
    waiting for your reviews:)

  8. Ohhh, you got some lovely items! :D What a great post. Unlike you, August has been rather unkind to me in terms of beauty purchasing lol There weren't any great deals or clearances going on, so I barely bought anything, which kinda stinks :P

  9. picked up products for really good prices! Been wanting to try the Face of Australia Primer.

  10. lovely haul!! I want them all!! *jealous* lol
    the maybelline eye shadow for 1$ is really a good deal!! I'm looking forward for upcoming reviews :-D

  11. Nice haul!!
    It seems like there's so many UD Naked palette dupes out in the market now!
    What beauty goodies have I bought?? Well I recently lost my make up bag will all my favourite products so I've been trying to repurchase/replace everything ( ; ___ ; ) It's a slow process since I was on holiday the month before so I'm broke. So far I've bought an eyeshadow palette of my eyebrows and a make up bag :'D
    Btw I've giving you a Liebster Award so feel free to check it out!

  12. great haul! i can't believe the mini maybeline eyeshadow pan was only $1. i thought mine was super cheap when i got it for $4!
    please do a a review on the beauty diary mist spray thing, i've seen them everywhere in chinatown but i havent really seen any reviews on them yet :D

  13. What a steal! $1 for eyeshadow. o: I'd like to see a review of the nudist palette!

  14. You found such good bargains! I'd love to see a review on the finishing spray!I just bought e.l.f's mist and set and I have no idea how to tell if its working or not. I rather like it though!

  15. I'm curious to know what the Etude House Tea Cleansing Cream is like! I have their foam cleanser, but it's so weird to see a cleanser in a tub! I imagine it's kind of like Noxema...?

  16. Yeah, there were some real bargains - luckily!

  17. Yeah! But at least that gives people more options :)
    Hehe, I know what you mean! If an Etude store opened here, I'd be in there everyday!

  18. Thanks! Hehe, that's what I like to tell myself XD
    Oh, I just saw it at my local Target. It smells exactly like berries~
    The cucumber water I got from Sasa - it's quite affordable!

  19. Yeah, I'm a sucker for a pretty neutrals palette!
    Isn't the skinfood remover fun and nice to use? I like it a lot~

  20. It smells really nice, and the colour is quite natural and pretty~
    Thanks for reading!

  21. Aww, that's too bad! I wonder why not? It's quite a big international brand, isn't it?

  22. Yeah, I can't wait to try some of them!
    Aww, but at least you saved some money that you can use for this month's shopping!

  23. I'm happy I got some good deals! Me too, it looks quite good since it's meant to be quite gentle~

  24. Thanks :)I was surprised to see that eyeshadow so cheap! I had to get it even though I have a few brown ones already, lol

  25. Oh no! It must be horrible to lose all your fave products :( I hope you can repurchase all you need soon!
    Aww, thanks so much!

  26. I thought it was a mistake at first, since $1 seems way to cheap for a maybelline product! So it was a great bargain :)
    Sure thing!

  27. Yeah, it was a good find!
    Sure thing :)

  28. Yep, I love a good sale!
    Ok, will do!

  29. Tbh, it's a little like rubbing creamy moisturiser into my face and then washing it off, lol. But yes, a review will be coming soon ^^

  30. Great products! :) I'm following you now :)

  31. That baby lips glow looks amazing! I have the pink punch one but I've never seen that glow version! Lovely post x

  32. I actually really like it a lot, and I'm not much a fan of pink lipbalms :)

  33. Great haul. I wish my target had such amazing deals :)


Aww, thanks for your comment! I'll be replying or visiting your blog soon ^.^
