Sydney Sephora haul!

I finally hit the new Sydney Sephora store. I had headed in on opening day but was totally put off by the big crowds and hype. On this day however, there was plenty of time and room to look around however a lot of products were out of stock. (There was not a single eyebrow brush of any kind or brand in the whole store) I went in with a rough list of what I wanted.

A new foundation to match my current tan (thinking Kat Von D Lock it in or Itcostmetics cc cream)
 A new liquid liner (open to brand)
 A new mascara
The bitebeauty AGAVE lip mask
The MUFE AQUAlip in 3c
 A lip tar test tube set
 Itcostmetics pretty palette
 An eyebrow brush (abh or itcosmetics)
As I mentioned stock levels of things were low so I was unable to purchase the lip pencil and browbrush so there are two things that I couldn’t purchase but I did pick up some of the things I wanted.
Formula x polish in Freaky like Freud

Do i need another glitter polish? No! But i have wanted a formula x polish for so long and i just couldn’t pick which shade to buy and this was so sparkly.

Tarte Amazonian clay 12 hour full coverage foundation in light-medium honey

I tried the Kat Von D lock it in and was colour matched but the sales assistant said that while it looked good at the time it would likely oxidise and may not look good after a few hours.  She recommended this foundation as a matte long wearing product. I can’t wait to see how this compares to my normal Double Wear.

OCC liptar in Hoochie

I just can’t get enough of this orchid shade. I bypassed the little kits of liptars for a single full sized shade. Radiant orchid perfection. Cant wait to swatch it for you.

Tarte lights, camera, FLASHES mascara

Who can argue with over 700% increased volume. This is my first tarte mascara and I’m soon excited to try this out!


Itcosmetics cc cream  in medium sample size

I really liked the coverage of the CC cream but couldn’t justify buying a second full sized product so i picked up the sample size. Its got a good amount of product and will probably do me until this tan fades.

Kat Von D studded kiss lipstick in Bachelorete.

This was a complete impulse buy! I love the packaging, the smell and this divine divine shade. Its perfect.

Kat Von D tattoo liner

I had my eye out for a new long wear eyeliner and then when i saw the product that the lovely Beaute Gazette recently reviewed so positively i knew it had to be mine

Itcosmetics tightline 3 in 1 mascara and hello lashes mascara in sample sizes

Impulse buy! I just couldn’t pass these up. I saw them in full size and was intrigued but didnt want to buy another 2 mascaras but couldn’t resist when i saw them in sample size near the check out. The tightline mascara is supposed to prime, darken lashes AND tightline? wow! cant wait to try it!


Bite beauty agave lip mask

Recent holidays and sun exposure left my lips burnt and dry and or the first time in a long time they actually peeled (ew) I had heard about this product on YouTube and really wanted to try it. It comes with a hefty price and I’m hoping it lives up to the hype.

Bite beauty matte creme crayon in glacé

So i wasn’t able to buy the aqua lip but i found this gorgeous lip crayon in almost the same shade. I might not purchase the AQUA lip now that i have this. love the slimline format and it swatched so creamy on the back of the hand.


Bite beauty matte Creme crayon in Fraise

And my last impulse purchase was another of the matte lip crayons in this pretty pink colour. Not much to say other than i “needed” it.

So there it is! A  pretty big haul! Ive vowed to cut down on how much i buy this year simply because i don’t want to grow my makeup collection any more. I found the it cosmetics pretty eyeshadow palette and swatched it and walked away simply because i don’t “need” anymore palettes (I’ve changed lol) While i  don’t think ill be running back to Sephora any time soon i was really pleased with the things i purchased and the customer service was great!

I'd love to see posts or at least swatches of the Bite lip products! Looks like a good haul.

Ugh!! What an amazing haul Rosa!!! I want to try the CC cream so badly but I can't find it online anywhere. I'm also lusting over the naturally pretty palette but I really can't justify it as I certainly don't need any more palettes. I've heard so many amazing things about the tarte mascara, I hope you find it as amazing as everyone else says! Loved reading this post :) I looooove a good haul! xxx
