Holiday Beauty Haul
Monday, 12 Jan 2015
I am back from an amazing holiday with my mom, and boyfriend and his family. It was an exciting and tiring holiday, but really great.
I took my mom to Krabi in Thailand, and then we went to Bangkok, where we met my bf and his family. Our families then returned home to SA, and we jetted off to Malaysia and then back to Bangkok for a bit.
I will do a more detailed post of my holiday in my Travel Diaries Section soon.
Let’s get hauling!
There is usually a bit of competition between my obsession with shoes and my obsession with beauty products, this year, beauty won, hands down! With shops like Sephora, Boots and SASA, who could resist? I am also running out of space in my shoe closet, and well, make up is smaller and easier to find place for, right?
First up, Sephora, both Thailand and Malaysia
A combination of Benefit, NYX, NARS, Stila, Too Faced, Sephora and Urban Decay. I am not going to list every product above, but leave a comment if you want any more details.
And my dear BF got me this makeup box to carry it all home in, isn’t he the sweetest!
Next up, SASA, Malaysia
I first came across SASA last year in Singapore, and I love it! I bought Mary-Lou Manizer and a blush, also from The Balm.
The Beauty Cottage, Thailand
This brand has the cutest little store, with the shop assistants dressed in theme appropriate outfits. The packaging is also super cute, I bought two blushers and a contour kit
Mostly Soap and Glory, since the boots I went to had a huge collection!
I think I bought every Real Techniques brush they had in Boots, a girl can never have enough brushes, right?
Some skincare from Boots, Soap and Glory, and this sunscreen product from L’Oreal, which reminds me a lot of the La Mer Sun Fluid.
Guardian and SASA, Malaysia
A couple of skincare products I bought this trip
While walking on the streets of Bangkok I found these awesome brushes, at even more awesome prices, yes please! And a little highlighter/bronzer compact too
The Face Shop, Malaysia
Mostly makeup, with two Konjac Sponges thrown in
Yes, they have Prabal Gurung, read my post on the collection here, sadly this range didn’t come to SA! And, they have the new Lightness of Being Collection, which is not yet available in SA, I bought both shades of the Mineralize Skinfinish in ‘Lightscapade’ and ‘Perfect Topping’ This collection is on the website, with a coming soon tag. You can check out the Lightness of Being Preview here
Take a closer look ladies, isn’t it beautiful!
I really had my heart set on this blush, and we saw it in Malaysia, and my sweet sweet BF spoilt me with it, YAY. It is way more expensive than a usual blush, about R840, but that is because of the packaging, it is so heavy too, it could be real gold! I feel like I never want to use it it is so pretty, paper weight maybe?
And that is my beauty haul Ladies! I am officially putting myself on a spending ban, I hope…Follow
