So... I kinda sorta did a cheeky bit of shopping. There have been so many amazing products catching my eye lately, and I know now coming into the Christmas period there will only be more beautiful limited edition products hitting our shelves. But for now, this is what I have picked up the last couple of weeks.
The first thing I picked up about two weeks ago a Mac Lipstick in Creme Cup. I think I am truly addicted to Mac Lipsticks. The formula and colour range is truly amazing. This one is a cult classic, a beautiful pale pink shade. I have been wearing it a lot and I absolutely love it.
I had my makeup done at Chanel on Friday and the $70 I paid for the appointment was fully redeemable in product. I decided to spend it on one of their Rouge Coco Shine Lipsticks in Sourire and one of their Illusion Dombre Eyeshadows in Illusoire.

I recently saw Dior Amber Diamond highlighter in real life and it was stunning. I have been thinking about it ever since and I was thinking about splurging on it when I found out they don't sell it in Australia :( but instead I came across this beautiful eye shadow quad from their Christmas collection. I decided to give their Dior Glow and Smoky Contrast Palette a try. The shadows are very nice but I will have to wear them a few more times before I can give you my final verdict. The sales assistant told me that if I picked up a second item she could give me a gift with purchase, so I decided to add on a lipstick I'd been eyeing off which is the Rouge Dior Nude lipstick in the colour Swan. This lipstick is similar to Creme Cup but it's definitely more peachy.

The gift with purchase included a sample of their Capture Totale Moisturiser, a sample of Diorshow Iconic Mascara, a sample of their Capture Totale Foundation and a sample of their Dior J'adore Perfume.
To celebrate the introduction of Napoleon Perdis counters to Myer they were giving away a free Luminous Lip Veil in VIP with every purchase! So I decided to pick up a lipstick that had been on my wishlist which was Devine Goddess in Electra. This is a knockout peachy pink colour, I can't even describe how much I am in love with this colour!
I know the Revlon Lip Butters are old news but I found them on sale for $8 each at a chemist so I decided to pick up a couple of colours I didn't already own, which were Sweet Tart and Berry Smoothie. But of an implulse purchase, but I'll get my use out of them this summer!
Berry Smoothie, Sweet Tart
Recently I have been starting to notice my skin reacts so much better to richer moisturisers and serums. My skintone has been looking so even and glowing since I have been using more oils. I decided to go ahead and pick up the Aesop Camelia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream. I've only been using it for about a week but so far this stuff has been amazing. Such a deep, thick moisturiser. As for facial oils, I really wanted to try out a Jojoba oil. Jojoba has been cited as having similar properties to the natural oils found in our skin so I decided to give the AUM Jojoba Oil a go! It smells really nice and works well too :)
With the weather warming up, it's time to get tanned. When I get my legs out after the winter I just need to add a bit of artificial tan. This Le Tan Instant Foaming Mousse is great for pale girls as it make you brown, not orange! I thought I should also grab a decent facial sunscreen and the Invisible Zinc is something I've been meaning to try for a while! While at Aesop I also grabbed this amazing Rind Concentrate Body Balm. This stuff smells so cirtus-y and amazing and it is perfect for the summertime. If you want to splurge on a body balm, this is your stuff.
These OPI are an accumulation of the buy one get one free sales at David Jones and ebay purchases. These first five are all Liquid sands formula, in the colours Tiffany Case, Baby Please Come Home, Silent Stars Go By, Alcatraz Rocks and What Wizardy is This?
These ones are Sprung, Wonderous Star, Polka.com and I Snow You Love Me
And finally we have Peace Love and OPI, Lights of Emerald City, Coney Island Cotton Candy, I Don't Give a Rotterdam and Tickle my France-y
Finally a couple more nail polishes, Essie Bikini So Teeny, Rimmel Salon Pro in Britpop and Soul Session, and lastly Australis Mates Rates
Finally, I thought I'd just share some pictures of the Makeup I had done at the Chanel counter. It was very over the top from what I am used to, but it was kinda cool to try something very out there.

Wow that was a lot of stuff. So many new lovely things to try out in the next few weeks!
Did any of these products catch your eye? What have you been buying lately?
