July 2015 US Haul.

Hi lovelies!

I have a US shopping haul to share! I'd bought a few little bits and bobs over the past couple of months and just left it at my parcel forwarder until I was ready to ship it, as it works out cheaper to ship in mass. I also picked up a couple of things for a few friends so everything is pictured in the first photo below, but the rest of this post will be on everything I purchased for myself.

Here's the combined haul, and yes, we picked up four Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighters (gosh, that's a mouthful) between us!

The mass haul.

Now, here's everything that I picked up for myself.

Coastal Scents had a big sale a couple of months ago so I picked up 28 eye shadow hot pots for just under $1 USD each. I also picked up an empty eyeshadow palette to store them in. I do have quite a few z-palettes but I prefer palettes which are built to size, as it's much easier to keep clean and just looks a lot nicer. I added a single eyeshadow brush to my order because I like having several base brushes on hand when I'm doing my eye makeup. Shipping to Australia would have been quite pricy for the weight, so I sent it to my parcel forwarding address and stored it there until I was ready to ship a few orders in one consignment.

Some of the shades do look quite similar, but unfortunately that's what happens when you pick shades based on swatches you've googled online! I tried to get a good selection of colours and neutrals. I'm not entirely sure what happened to one of the shadow pans (second from left on the second row) as it looks like it had a good chunk gouged out of it, but luckily, the rest arrived intact.

On to the gorgeous Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Highlighter. I love Jaclyn so I really wanted this highlighter shade. I've been totally obsessed with my Becca Highlighter in Opal (reviewed here) since I got it, so I want to collect all the shades that Becca have!

Aside from the box, there's nothing to differentiate this highlighter from the rest in the Becca shimmering skin perfector pressed range, so you have to flip it over to check the name on the back.

Overall, though, this is a simply gorgeous shade and I'll have swatches of the different shades in a separate post coming shortly. I have absolutely no regrets buying this!

Last but not least, I've been longing for several MAC lipstick shades so I picked up these five lipsticks, Steam Heat, Girl About Town, Brick-O-La, Craving and Mehr. I initially purchased Steam Heat from the Limited Edition Wash and Dry Collection when it first launched, but I was fortunate enough to receive the same shade as a PR gift, so I'll either sell this one or keep it as a backup. Swatches and review here, if you'd like to check it out. I absolutely love this collection, the packaging is just so bright and summery!

I can't wait to play with my new lovelies, they look so gorgeous!
