Post Spending Ban Haul and Update :D

Hey everyone!

So my spending ban went okay this past month. I did pick up a couple of things but overall it went pretty well :) the things that I did break the ban for were the two Lush shower gels and the Face of Australia nail polishes.

The rest of the stuff I picked up today :D 


An overview of the haul :)


Face of Australia Pastel Nail Polishes


Lush Shower Gels in Ponche and Grass

I was supposed to meet up with a friend this morning but he got sick. I had already gotten on the bus so instead I went into Target and I found both the Essence Twilight Collection and a new Australis eye shadow palette! I am not a fan of Twilight but this collection looks really nice.

I picked up the nail polishes which look amazing, the highlighter and 3 of the four pigments.


Essence Twilight Nail Polishes


Essence Twilight Pigments


Essence Twilight Highlighter


Australis Totes Smokin' Palette

You may be wondering why there are two of some of the products, that is because my give away is coming on Monday, so make sure that you check back then to enter!

Next I went to Chemist Warehouse to take advantage of their offer of 2 Avene Eau Thermal Water for $20 


Avene Thermal Spring Water



I picked up another Neutrogena Eye Makeup Remover that I finished up recently. I was standing there looking at the fake tanning products for a long time, and I ended up grabbing this Garnier Moisturiser that has a gradual tanner in it. I will let you know if it's any good. It does smell nice though :D

So watch out for the new Australis Eye Shadow Palette swatches tomorrow and my give away on Monday!

  5. What does the Avene thermal water do? Sounds interesting.

    1. It is literally water in a can. Well, it's water from a French Spring. The water is the key ingredient in all of the Avene skin care range. I always thought it was a bit ridiculous but I got a sample of it and when I used it it really soothed any redness on my skin.
      I will do a full post soon actually :D

  6. Ooh- saw that palette just 15 minutes ago at Target, but didn't buy since no tester and no price and that generally just pisses me off! Looking forward to your swatches! Jodi : )

  7. Lovely haul! I checked out the new Essence collection on Thursday and had to force myself not to buy all the pigments, I just don't need any more eye shadows so I have to be strong! You'll have to post some swatches :)

  9. The Essence Twilight collection is really tempting me, especially those nail polishes. Luckily my local Target's cosmetics section is a total disaster area otherwise I'd definitely break my shopping ban.

    The rest of your haul looks great. That Australis palette looks like a bargain, I can't wait to see your swatches.

    1. I hate Targets like that! I have 4 Targets all the same distance from my house - some are a shambles and some are great!
