Silly me forgot to separate the my purchases into two parts so I could get the other QWP too - but, eh, there wasn't really anything exciting in that one. I also made a trip to Mecca Maxima to compare some prices...and of course I had to buy something. This is part one of my birthday haul because I have the most exciting thing ever coming up in soon in part two.
As usual, below is a list of items that will be reviewed in due time.
I was in search of a full coverage foundation. Let's hope this works.
Natio Pure Mineral Skin Perfecting BB Cream SPF 15
Have heard many good things about this BB cream so I'm eager to try it out. Shade medium might be a tad too dark for me though now that I swatch it in broad daylight. This is the convenient part of my life where my sister comes in - her skin is a whole shade darker than mine.
Natio Pure Mineral Foundation
This is my most FAVOURITE foundation, like, ever! So when I saw that Myer and David Jones were reducing prices to clear which means it may be discontinued. Needless to say, I stocked up. I purchased two Light/Medium's and one Light because that's my skin colour ratio with this foundation.
I don't know why I got this to be honest. Must have been the cute travel size and cheaper price point, I guess?
Natio Blusher Brush
I actually went "ooh" when I saw this. I haven't heard much about the brush line, and this little guy is just the perfect size for contouring and setting under eye concealer; I couldn't not purchase it.
Natio Complexion Perfection Foundation Sponge
I love this sponge even though I don't have a Beauty Blender to compare it to. This purchase was a backup.
Natio Moisturising Lip Balm
Lip balm's for me is like crack. All day, everyday you'll see me applying lip balm so of course I wanted to try this one out (I'm running low on my Palmer's Sunscreen Stick).
Natio Ageless Illuminating Primer
Yeah I definitely don't know why I got the Smashbox primer. I heard many a good thing on this product so I'm very excited to try that out.
Natio Ageless Daily Moisturiser Sun Protection SPF 30+
I've been in desparate need of a new daily moisturiser as my Antipodes Rejoice has now run out, and the Trilogy Daily Vital Moisturiser I bought to replace it was shocking. Natio claims this to be "perfect under makeup". Let's hope so because I wear makeup everyday.
Natio Spa Heavenly Hand Cream
As my Clarins hand cream is running out, this will be a wonderful substitute.
Natio Lash Definition Mascara
My mascara collection is steady increasing. I don't know if that's a good thing or not. Either way I am refraining from opening any new bottles until I finish using another. So the review for this will be a long way away.
Natio Cosmetics Bag
I adore the quality of this bag. I has a nice cotton texture feel to it, thats covered in linoleum? substance? Anyway, I needed to buy a new makeup bag because I can never have enough apparently.
Just a note before I end up. Whilst I was perusing the Lancome stall at Myer Highpoint, I was approached by a lovely lady named Cathy. She is the manager for Lancome and if you're ever around there, make sure you meet her. She has the be the best SA I have ever had the pleasure to encounter. Such friendly and charming service, with lots of advice and tips can only mean I will definitely be returning before the year is out to buy a $55 concealer. I love her, and now I love Lancome even more than I used to. Thanks Cathy! You made my day :) xx
