I have to apologise in advance for the photos (as usual). It took me about an hour to get through all the packages and I was really exhausted at the end. I know they're of terrible quality BUT this isn't a review on anything so it doesn't really matter that much. (hopefully!).
|DHL delivered 5 boxes to me :)|
TheBalm held a sale on April 1st to launch their new website. Everything was 50% off and I managed to place an order at 4am in the morning (the site was obviously really slow). They couldn't keep up with the online traffic so the "official 50% off sale" didn't actually go ahead until the next week but luckily for me, TheBalm honoured all orders that made it through before they closed the website to fix it.
Box 2: MAC
|Yep.. I know it's a terrible photo!|
I also picked up the brow gel in clear, blot powder in Medium and 3 lipsticks (Lustering, Please Me and Chatterbox). This cost me US$101. It would have cost me AUS$202 to get it from David Jones or Myer.
Box 3: Sephora
|Sephora pack 1|
The Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation is actually also a little too light for me. I read a lot of reviews that said that Bamboo Beige was the best match for NC30 but I think it might actually be closer to NC25. I'll have to save this for winter :)
Box 4: Sephora
|Make Up For Ever Concealers|
I absolutely love my Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer in shade 8 but it's starting to get a little too dark for me so I picked it up in number 7. I also got the Make Up For Ever Lift Concealer in Neutral Beige 3 as my under eye concealer. They were both bought during 15% off sale too.
Box 5: Sephora
|Sephora Box 3|
I definitely won't be shopping like this again for a really long time. Let me know if you want any reviews on any of this stuff :)
