It's been quite a while since I've blogged about my recent purchases, so I thought I would do a quick post and show you dolls what I've bought over the last couple of weeks. I've been very lucky lately as I've found so many deals whilst shopping, that I have ntot been able to resist from buying!
The two most recent purchases in this haul are two Revlon nail polishes. When I was casually browsing through Target before work, I saw that Revlon was having a buy one get one free deal on their nail polishes and lip products. I decided to opt for nail polishes instead of lipsticks as I have too many lip products at home that I could never ever get through. The two nail polishes I purchased were 320 Ocean Breeze and 441 Radiant. Although Ocean Breeze doesn't look like it in the photo, but it's actually a lovely blue/green/aqua shade - definitely a beautiful colour and I can't wait to wear it on my nails!

The next item I purchased was Physicians Formula's Happy Booster blush in Rose. I heard a fair few good things about this blush from watching MissGlamorazzi or Ingrid youtube videos, so I had to give it a try. The packaging and design of the blush is adorable! I love that it consists of different sized and coloured hearts.
The blush also comes with a mini brush which is stored underneath the blush itself. I think that by adding in the extra brush makes it extremely convenient for travelling. The brush is also extremely cute! The bristles are two toned which complement the actual blush packaging and the blush shade itself.

So, as the name of the blush insinuates - Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush is described as being "infused with a Happy Boost Blend, featuring Happy Skin and Euphoryl, natural plant extracts which have been shown to promote a feeling of happiness by mimicking the effect of Endorphins and helping protect the skin from environmental stress". This is caused by the blush having a lovely scent of violet and therefore providing the user with joy with each use. I did notice a lovely subtle scent when opening the blush and was quite impressed with the smell, so I guess it's that's kind of a mood booster right?

The Starter Set also comes in a panoramic brush case and contains 5 full-sized brushes. The brushes are a base shadow brush, deluxe crease brush, accent brush, pixel-point brush and brow brush. All brushes from Real Techniques are said to be "ultra-plush, synthetic taklon bristles are hand-cut and 100% cruelty-free" which is fantastic. I purchased both the sets and the blush brush for less than $45 AUD, which I think is such a bargain considering if I purchased them from Priceline I would have paid approx $98AUD. That's double the price!! So I'm extremely glad I had a good look around before purchasing them.
(Natio's Pressed Powder in Soft Beige)
I picked up the next four things from CFD, first off I purchased Natio's Pressed Powder in Soft Beige. I already have this powder and it is one of my favourites so I quite happy with this purchase. Also, all Natio's products that were available were half price, so I definitely could not resist!
Next, I decided to buy a few Burt's Bees products as I haven't tried any of their products before. I got this little Burt's Bee package for less than half price and I can't wait to try them out! The pack contains a body wash, body lotion, lip balm and hand cream - definitely a steal!
(Your Hut Or Mine, Fair Game, Lion Game & Da Bush)
And lastly, the next two products are both from Essie!! Finally Essie is being sold in Australia and I'm extremely excited! I have been lusting over Essie nail polishes for the longest time and now I can finally buy them. Unfortunately, the full sized bottles are retailing around $18-20 in department stores, so it's definitely not cheap at all. Luckily enough though, I was able to grab two mini collections from Essie for $5 each! The first collection I picked up was the Essie Resort Collection that includes Fair Game, Your Hut Or Mine, Lion Around & Da Bush.
(Super Bossa Nova, Meet Me At Sunset, Smooth Sailing & Braziliant)
And the other collection I purchased was the Essie Summer collection, which features bright, fun, summer nail polishes! The colours which come in the mini set include: Braziliant, Smooth Sailing, Super Bossa Nova & Meet Me At Sunset. I'm extremely happy with my purchases from the last couple weeks and I will be definitely putting more in-depth reviews up as soon as I can. I'm also heading to Fiji in a couple of days, so definitely picking more products for reviews and I may do a post about "what's in my travel bag" or what not. Let me know what you think!
