Haulage: Tarte, Kat Von D, Deborah Lippmann + MORE!

Since the semester started, I have been procrastinating from uni work and I somehow find myself scrolling through different online stores for cosmetics that are unavailable in Australia. In April, I placed a rather large order on Tarazz which used to sell things from Sephora HOWEVER, have stopped since then :(. I'm not completely sure as to why they have stopped selling cosmetics from Sephora, but my guess is something to do with an actual store being built in Australia? I don't know, ANNYYYWAYYS, lets get on with the haul!!


Kat Von D is not available in Australia and is a brand that I was always curious about. I am SO KEEN on trying the Lock-It Tattoo Foundation and Concealer so bad, but I don't know how the colours go so I have never tried them. Nonetheless, I decided on the "True Romance" Eyeshadow palette that has an array of neutral toned shades, which are my fave type of eyeshadows. I think I will do a review of this one soon because I have not seen too many of them floating around.

I bought two things from Tarte, first being the Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara which comes in this really neat snakeskin packaging. And the other is a highly raved about Amazonian Clay Blush in the shade "Fearless" which is a gorgeous coral which I can't get enough of.



After waiting so long, I finally bought a Korres lip butter {go me!}. I bought the shade in "Jasmine" which smells amazing! After close inspection of the lip butter, I'm not sure about the shade anymore. It looks like it is going to have a really sheer wash of colour that might not even show up on my lips. If I like what the Korres lip butter does to my lips, I might invest in another darker shade {what would you recommend?}.

I did get two products that I did little to no background research on which is going to be interesting to try out. I picked up the Josie Maran Bear Naked Nail Wipes which has 40 sheets of nail wipes that smell like grapefruit {yummo}. On a whim, I threw the Philosophy Kiss Me Lip Scrub in my basket because I've been into really exfoliating my lips lately and my Lush lip scrub was getting a little messy.



Nail polishes are my weakness, and I had yet to try Butter London and Deborah Lippman nail polishes. I usually just buy cheap nail polish but this time I decided to splurge on a few shades that caught my eye. From Deborah Lippman, both have Mermaid in the name which made me instantly click it into my basket with no questions. The sea foam shade is called "Mermaids Dream" and the purple shade is called "Do the Mermaid". Without a doubt, these two shades are probably the most beautiful nail polishes in my collection in terms of colour! I also to take advantage of the opportunity to buy myself a Butter London nail polish in the shade "Come to Bed Red" which is a bright red {classic and always in fashion}.

I'm so excited to start using all these products so make sure to let me know if you are interested in seeing any reviews of any of the products I have purchased.
