August Mini Haul

My mini haul
A couple of days ago, I found out that Bourjois is finally available in Malaysia. If you wonder how I felt then let me tell you...the sky opens and the angels started to sing. Melodramatic much? Yes but that was pretty darn close to how I felt. So I went nosying around Bourjois Malaysia Facebook page and discovered there will be a counter available in a mall which I frequent on 26 July. I am 5 days late but hey, better late than never no? One of these days I will be there when products are of these days I will but for now, I will settle for being 5 days late.

Look closely...the most popular products are gone.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation (MYR57.90)
After reading countless reviews on Bourjois Healthy Mix foundations, I just had to get my hands on one. Unfortunately for me, the only shade left for Healthy Mix foundation is Vanilla which I know is way too light for me so I picked up Healthy Mix Serum in Beige Clair (Light Beige) which swatch seems to match my skin tone really well.

Bourjois Little Round Pot Blush in Healthy Mix (MYR35.90)
Generally I am not a huge fan of powder blushers as I personally don't find it long lasting. But after the recent raves about this baked blush in this shade (peachy borderline coral), I thought why not? It's my first baked blush, actually my first baked product and I don't have a blush in this shade. The swatch looked a little light for my skin tone but I am a huge fan of natural look so this might work out for the best. We'll see...

Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara Waterproof (MYR49.90)
How can I leave without picking up one of my favourite thing? Yep, you know it and I wouldn't be me if I don't get my hands on a mascara to try. I wanted to pick up Rouge Edition lipstick in no. 10 which was the only one that caught my eyes but it was sold out! Grrr!

Done with Bourjois and now on to MAC....(Please take note that starting 1 August 2014, MAC lipsticks new price is MYR70.00.)

MAC Morange (MYR68.00)
I have been on an orange/coral lipstick binge. There is something about these shades that gives my face such a beautiful healthy glow so I had to add Morange into my collection.

MAC Impassioned (MYR68.00)
I believe this is one of MAC most popular lipstick and I have read soooo many raves about it. So yes, another beautiful subtle pink to be added into my collection.

And now to the sad part...I have imposed a "No Beauty Buy" ban onto myself for the whole month of August. I think some restrain will do me good. Besides, I think my wallet will thank me, tremendously and it will be a great way for me to rediscover all the little gems that I have and forgotten. It's also a great way for me to be more creative in my posts instead of just endless new purchase reviews.

So now onto you, what are your latest splurge? Do share! xx
