Haulage Cubed!

Here's a tale of three hauls. The first was an online order I did when Priceline were having their 40% off sale, which I obviously couldn't resist. This is quite lipstick-heavy.

The next two happened when I finally got out of the house, venturing to a large shopping centre. I should get out more, because the Beauty section of Kmart was almost unrecognisable. I needed to make some snap decisions, because my husband and son were waiting for me in the toy section while I browsed. I bought some very cheap, plain-packaged Kmart-line cosmetics because I'm curious and I wanted to test the quality. I've photographed them packaged and unpackaged, so you know what I'm referring to.

Lastly, the obligatory trip to Priceline (instore, this time) as more sales were happening. It's like they always have discounts and specials, right? Anyway, I won't go into my annoyance at the excessive sticky tape/security seal fiasco (okay I will: ugly residue, labels/shades being sacrificed with eventual removal of tightly wound tape, damaged eyeshadow crayon tip as a result, etc), suffice to say 11 frustrated tweets to Priceline occurred on the 7th of April, @ShinyGlitterBug on Twitter if you want to check it out.
