I know I'm on a shopping ban starting last January, meaning: I have to reduce my shopping allowance deeply and try not to buy things as much as my budget allows me to. But these are special purchases that I just couldn't missed ;p
Recently ASOS and MUA (Make Up Academy) were having a huge sale that I just couldn't let go. I mean, these offers don't come really often. ASOS were having their special sale up to 70% OFF + Free Shipping; and MUA were also having their super huge 50% OFF + Free Shipping too!
So of course I just couldn't missed that, right? I mean if I missed that sale I might not be able to get the same offer again until months later or maybe even until next year, right? >> [justification ;p]
Anyway, since I am still in a shopping ban so I didn't get much things from the ASOS sale. I also sort of looking for the cheapest things they have on the website, LOL.. Meanwhile, MUA items were already so cheap (palettes for only £4 ) and with the 50% Off sale they were just only £2 each!! Amazing sale! And with International free shipping too!
So here's what I got from ASOS:
River Island Pink Clutch
Cath Kidston Mini Starter Set
I love that I can buy Cath Kidston stuffs from ASOS because I've been a fan of Cath Kidston prints and patterns. Very vintage romantic, I must say..
I was also in need of a pink bag because I just realized that I actually wore quite a lot of pink outfits lately but I don't have any pink bag to wear them with. So when I saw that this clutch from River Island was on a deep sale, I immediately picked it up ^o^
The weird thing is, I haven't used this clutch at all since the day I received it ;p Well, maybe I'll wear it tomorrow then..
Cath Kidston is one of my all-time favorite designers. She designs lots of things including decorative things, interiors such as wallpapers, and she also designs bedding set, toiletries, gadget cases, and I think maybe stationary too? Overall, I just love her designs.. pretty pastel colors, vintage florals, very girly and feminine :)
I can only get one Cath Kidston thing on my shopping cart because I can't shop much, remember? So after looking around I decided to get this mini set instead. This super cute mini starter set includes a shower gel + body lotion in three scents: Honeysuckle, Bluebell, and Wild Rose.
So let's move on to MUA stuffs..
I got quite a few stuffs from MUA because they have a minimum purchase of £30, but after the discount it became £15 ;)
This is my first time trying on MUA products so I can't wait until I tried them. All of these stuffs were mostly £1 to £2 each, so that's why I got a handful of them. The lipsticks were only £1, can you believe it? With all the pretty packaging and high pigmentation? Wow.
The ones inside the bubble wraps above are palettes. I bought a pretty blusher and 3 of their eyeshadow palettes. MUA are famous for their eyeshadow palettes because many people raved about their rich pigmentation, so I was most curious to these palettes.
I also bought a few of their makeup brushes because some people say that it's pretty great, and they were on sale too so I thought I'd try them out.
As you can see above, there are 3 eyeshadow palettes. One of them are covered beneath the other one because that is the one that I am gonna include in a giveaway for you guys! Yes, I will make a giveaway soon and I've been accumulating all the prizes now, this MUA palette is gonna be one of the prizes and that's why I covered it up because I don't want to ruin the surprise ;)
I'm planning to have 2 giveaways: one for my Indonesian readers [which will include the surprise palette above], and one for my International readers. So stay tune and subscribe! :)
Anyway, here are the stuffs I bought from MUA:
MUA Intense Kisses Lip Gloss in Lips Are Sealed
MUA Lipstick in shade 3
MUA Lipstick in shade 16 Nectar
