A couple of weeks back, Indigo Kir Royale and I did a combined Selfridges order. It was really very naughty of me to buy more makeup given my recent reckless spending (makeup and food, mostly), but I couldn’t pass up a chance to get my hands on some Charlotte Tilbury.
www.selfridges.com ships directly to Australia, and although the shipping is expensive (a flat rate 25 pounds) – it is not too bad when shared between two or more. Plus, it’s fast. When purchasing from them, the VAT is taken off the full price (second column in the invoice after the jump)- depending on what you buy, you still end up paying significantly less than Australian prices.

With all the moving I’ve been pretty disciplined with holding back from too many unnecessary makeup purchases (although, I suppose “unnecessary” was always open to interpretation). The Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales this year for ASOS beauty and NARS were too good to resist, and I bought some things I’ve been lusting over for ages. I also stocked up on a couple of bottles of my HG foundation- NARS Sheer Glow in Fiji.
I’ve had a good play with most of the products already, and am really taken with Watercolour blush in Gentle, NARS Red Square, and NARS Mozambique. Reviews on their way…

It has been a long time since I purchased more than one or two makeup products in one go (moving around a lot makes you reconsider buying large quantities of anything)- so I thought it was about time to give into a few lemmings and also restock some necessary basics. Thank you Elise for helping a sister out.
Reviews and swatches will be up shortly!

I’ve heard so much about these blushes, and fell in love with this shade when I swatched it.
MAC Stud Eyebrow Pencil:
Great product, and the 3rd repurchase.

If you follow my tweets, you may have heard my angry rants about how Kiss And Makeup NY lost my parcel, and how awful their customer service was. I had spent over $100 on an order, which never arrived. After 4 weeks of waiting, I starting emailing them to find out whether there were any delays they knew about- each time I emailed them, they took forever to reply (with a generic ‘sometimes things take longer through customs, give it another few weeks’ answer). In the end I never received my package, and Kiss And Makeup NY customer service essentially told me that it was my fault that I didn’t insure my items.
I mourned for my lost package for about a month, then I decided to reorder some of the items and pick up a few more things at Nordstrom. Elise from Stuff That I Bought kindly offered to be my makeup mule since she is living in New York at the moment, so here are my new pretties! (thanks Elise, you are the best thing ever).
