The Travel Haul Series: High End Makeup


I have this terrible habit of treating foreign money like it's monopoly money. I mean..if it's not in Australian dollars it doesn't count right...right?! *cough* Ahem..anyway majority of these products are the result of duty free shopping which I took full advantage of.

Mac Lipsticks in Viva Glam 2, Creme Cup, and Girl About Town.
These ended up being super cheap, like, suuper cheap. The two regular lipsticks were 13 pounds which worked out to be $26. That's a whole $10 cheaper than back home!! I won't go into these too much as i'm making another more in depth blog post on them.

Too Faced Soul Mates Blushing Bronzer in Carrie & Big
As Sex & the City is one of my favourite series I was practically obligated to buy this because of it's name. But,  it was only 10 pounds ($20 aud) at TKMaxx. Am yet to try it but fingers crossed it's a winner.

Urban Decay 'All Nighter' Makeup Setting Spray
Also picked up this bad boy at duty free for only $40 *fist pump*. I've used this a couple of times and I think it works? The ultimate test will be wearing it back home seeing as it's so hot and humid. May also do a review on this to see how battles against the wretched sweat-inducing Australian weather.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
This was only $60 duty free *fist pumps again* so I had to buy it cause when else would I get it this cheap. Am yet to give this a serious try but I can't wait.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
This is a holy grail of many so I thought it was about time to give it a try. I got this travel sized one from Sephora. Haven't used it yet but I hope it lives up to the hype!

Anyway I have many haul posts coming up seeing as I went a little crazy in Europe (who can blame a girl?!). So watch out for the many haul posts coming up. Thanks for reading!

    1. Saaame! I really want to get my hands on more asap! x

  2. I need that UD Setting Spray! But perhaps the variant for oily skin since my nose ends up looking like a grease ball about 2 hours after putting on makeup, haha. The Better Than Sex mascara has been on my wishlist for quite some time, too! Great haul, Holly :-)

    1. OOh yeah I really want to get a travel sized UD oil-control setting spray to compare it! My t-zone can sometimes get quite greasy too! Thanks for reading :) x

  3. The blushing bronzer looks really pretty! Haha, I'm the same when it comes to spending money when it's another currency!
