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).

This is what I left with….
Lip Tars! They were $14.00 at IMATS so I stocked up.
- Memento: light dusty pink
- Beta: (blindingly) bright orange.
- Stalker: Watermelon red
- NSFW: True red with a very slight brown base.
From the MAC Pro store-
MAC Chromagraphic Pencil in NC15/NW20 (I was so happy to nab this because I missed getting it with the Pret A Papier collection, and the nearest MAC Pro store was a huge pain to get to).
Quite Natural Paint Pot: I bought this at IMATS because I was under the impression that it was a Pro product because of a conversation I had at a MAC counter a fortnight before this.
[at the MAC counter at Myer]
me: Do you stock Quite Natural paint pot?
MAC sales assistant: you mean, Painterly paint pot? (clearly thinking I had said ‘do you stock a quite natural p/p)
me: um.. no, I’m after Quite Natural Paint Pot.
MAC sales assistant: yes, Painterly gives a very natural look (looking at me like I’m deaf or possibly intellectually disabled)
me: Oh, no sorry I meant the actual Paint Pot called ‘Quite Natural’. I can’t see it on the display, is it a Pro product?
MAC sales assistant: It’s probably Pro or part of a previous limited edition collection.
Anyhow, turns out that it’s not a Pro product at all and I should have bought it from the MAC online store from the US like I normally do.

Hello beautiful people!
I haven’t done a haul post for awhile so I thought it would be fun to show you what’s turned up in my mail box in the last 2 weeks. Plus, I’ve been itching to show you guys how pretty everything is!
The first photograph is the contents of my Neiman Marcus package (I used Shopaholiques mail forwarding service as usual because they don’t accept non-US credit cards).
So we have…
- Issey Miyake L’eau Dissey Purse spray : I basically live in L’eau D’issey and I’ve gotten sick of lugging around my 50mL bottle and continually losing the cap.
- NARS Grand Palais Eyeshadow Duo
- Edward Bess Compact Rouge in Island Rose for lips and cheeks
- NARS Outremer Single Eyeshadow
- Jack Black Vanilla and Lavender intense therapy lip balm: the scent is interesting.. reminds me exactly of how the store Perfect Potions smells inside. Hippy, but in a good way
- Two more backups of Jack Black Mint Intense Therapy lip balm.
This is my package from Zuneta.com . I went a little crazy when Sarah from Dempeaux told me that it was free international shipping because Zuneta normally charges an arm and a leg for shipping to Australia and there’s nowhere else I can purchase Rouge Bunny Rouge products.
Keep reading after the jump!

The Aussie dollar being at record highs recently, I decided that it was time to do a US order. Of course, there were a few other things I needed to pick up, while I was there
This is what arrived in my package, mail forwarded through Shopoholiques:
- Chantecaille Lip Chic ‘Zinnia’
- NARS foundation pump
- NARS Dolce Vita lipstick
- MAC Blacktrack Fluidline
- MAC eyelash curler
- MAC Copperplate eye shadow refill
- Chanel Rouge Coco Shine ‘Boy’
- Illamasqua powder blush ‘Hussy’
- Bobbi Brown lip balm SPF 25
- Juice Beauty cleansing milk.
- Jack Black mint lip therapy
I can’t remember exactly which items were from where, but I purchased the products from Nordstroms, Sephora, and Barneys. Not everything I wanted was available at a single online store, unfortunately but I made sure that I was getting free ground shipping to Shopoliques.
