As you might have seen, I recently posted a Sephora & Mecca Maxima Wishlist! and this is the follow up post to that! I mentioned in that post that I would be in Sydney and was hopefully going to pick up some of those items! Well I’m here to report that I DID pick up some, while there were others that I did not! To repeat the same order I will start of with my Sephora haul and then move onto Mecca Maxima!
Here is an overview of all the items that I picked up! I am pretty proud of this haul as I was in and out in under 10 minutes! I didn’t get everything I wanted, because I honestly totally spaced even though I had a list! But thats alright.
First off is the Tarte Tartelette in Bloom Eyeshadow Palette which is honestly the main item that I was going in for. My sister has the original Tartlette palette and she LOVES it and was telling me I had to try it! I am still getting used to matte shadows so I figured this would be better for me as there are a couple of shimmery shades in this palette! I am super excited to try this and to learn new skills and branch out of my comfort zone with my makeup looks. (Edit, I’ve tried this and I love it already.)
Next is the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks in L.U.V and Bauhaus. I picked these because we are going into the cooler months in Australia (about time) and so I knew I would get a lot of use out of these! I picked up L.U.V. because I am drawn more towards the colour purple recently. I LOVE Jeffree Star Cosmetics – Blow Pony and Jeffree Star Cosmetics – I’m Royalty so I knew that I would love this shade! I have yet to try this on but I am super excited to! Bauhaus I picked up because I do enjoy wearing dark pinks, but I figured this would be a shade that I could get away with wearing at work and such. I have tried this on and really liked how it looked! After trying these two I know that I will be picking up more in the future!
I was super excited to finally be getting my hands on the Kat Von D Lock-it foundation because as I have mentioned I love full coverage foundation and that is exactly what this foundation is! I have already tested this a few times and I am in love with it. I am super excited as well because recently on Instagram Kat Von D announced that she would be releasing 13 new shades and one of them being white! This means that there is always a chance to get a closer colour match! I will be writing a review on this in the future I just know it! (new shades will be released around July.)
To be straight out honest I did not mean to pick up the Kat Von D Ink Liner in Trooper because I was meant to get the Tattoo Liner in Trooper! While I was in Sephora there were people restocking and they didn’t really move out of the way when I made my way over so yea, I grabbed the first one I saw with ‘Trooper’ written on it. This is a felt tip liner which is something I actually don’t like, I even tried using it and found it was scratch-y so yea. I might save this for other looks that might come in the future.
This was something that I picked up in the dreaded (and most exciting) isle before the cash register. This is the Tarte Smooth Operator Setting Powder and I picked this up because I have heard good things about this product! This only cost me $15 so I figured if I really didn’t like it I didn’t waste the money on a full size. I have only tried this once so I can’t comment on this just yet!
Next I was off to Mecca Maxima! (Not really I went here first but shhh) Again, I didn’t get everything on my list but I am not stressed by this. I picked up something I wasn’t expecting to, but I don’t mind!
Here is my small Mecca Maxima Haul! I was in and out of the shop in about 5 minutes and I was pretty proud of that effort! I am glad that I got my two main items ❤
The first item I’m going to talk about is the one I picked up on my way to the cash register and that is the Soap and Glory Hand Maid. I am a big supporter of using hand sanitiser before using your makeup or touching your face. So there is no such thing as too many hand sanitisers in my life. I picked this up because I know that I will one day get around to using it!
This was a product that I knew I would not be leaving Sydney without. The Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Original has become my holy grail eyeshadow primer and I don’t think I could live without it anymore! I had a deluxe size that I had purchased while in America and I am just finishing it up now. There is sooooo much product in here so I know that I will get lots of use out of this! I have oily creasy eye lids that can be a real pain to put eyeshadow on. But with using this I can go all day without any problems and that is so important to me.
This is the last item from my haul and its almost one of the most important! The Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray is something I knew I would be getting because I wanted a setting spray that I was used to and knew would last me a long time! I have used this in the past and really liked it, so that is why I picked it up again! I must say though that I think there is something wrong with my spritzer as it doesn’t spray out evenly. So I will have to figure out a way to try and fix it, if you have any ideas, please let me know!
That’s it guys! They are all the items that I picked up while in Sydney. I would have probably picked up more if I had more time to look around but oh well! It was probably a good thing I didn’t otherwise I might of spent money I didn’t really have!
Is there any must haves that you think I need to try out? Please let me know in the comments!
