Haulin' It: Chi Chi, Benefit Cheekathon + Perfumes!




Oh hey! I thought I'd blog about my latest hauls in one post, since I got all these beauties in the space of two days. I went shopping in the city yesterday, and it didn't escape my attention that Priceline had up to 60% off fragrances. So my first stop of the day was the usually pretty empty Hindley Street store, which I'm sure most people forget about! Perfect. I had a list of ten fragrances I wanted to smell, and was promptly helped with spritzing on tester cards. I finally decided on Calvin Klein Eternity Summer and my old favourite, YSL Paris, although they only had the 30ml. I'm happy with this, because I'd just finished my bottle of Paris so was due for another one!

I've been eyeing off the Chi Chi Spices eyeshadow palette lately, and when I heard Target had a 30% off Chi Chi sale, I knew I had to visit. Apparently there was a big Chi Chi sale at Myer a few weeks ago, but I hadn't watched a million Chi Chi palette Youtube videos at that point, so I wasn't craving it yet! But first, I was in Myer, scoping the GWP offers for the Mother-In-Law, when I spied a $1 Clearance table. I bought the Miss Shop Metallic Body Tattoos just for fun and the gold and silver Chi Chi eye crayons out of curiosity and because I know they'll be fun to play around with. Besides, how can you go wrong for a paltry $3!? I noticed Myer had 20% off Chi Chi, and they had the Spices palette in stock, but I thought I'd get it from Target for 30% off instead.

Of course Target were sold out of the Spices palette! They did have quite a few other Chi Chi palettes though, and I decided to go with the gorgeous Sunkissed one since it was 30% off all Chi Chi products. The more I look at it, the more I fall in love with the array of oh-so-pretty shades! I grabbed an eyeshadow brush while I was there because I don't have many makeup brushes and I'm using the only two eyeshadow ones I have for highlighting my cupid's bow and setting my under eye concealer with powder, instead of their intended use.

Remember when I said I ordered the Benefit Cheekathon in this Mother's Day Gift Guide post? Well my Adore Beauty order arrived, and this awesome value for money cheeky palette is every bit as beautiful as I thought it would be! I used the code offer to get the Benefit samples and the others were the freebies you get with your order (not that I need any more! I'm already doing a Sample Challenge this month!).

  10. I haven't bought any make up in years, but neither have I worn any in years (a decade or more possibly). I occasionally wear lipstick but mostly have very old ones I pull out when required (or ones my mother's gotten for free with something she's bought!).

  12. I think I need to go shopping with you Di - there are SO many fabulous products out there I struggle to decide what to buy, but you've chosen so wisely. Haven't worn Paris for years - it's a beautiful fragrance, and I'm a fan of Eternity too, but haven't tested the Summer version as yet. Thanks for the clues hon xxx
