Crush Cosmetics - a little bit of a haul

Whenever I need a cheap cosmetics fix I love browsing through the Crush Cosmetics website, they have a great range of products not available at most stores and because they're Australia based I get my order delivered in 2-3 days max. So here's my latest purchases, all cheap as chips.


The main reason I put in an order is because of the empty eyeshadow palettes.


They're $7.95 each, and hold an eyeshadow pan that's 26mm (that's the same size as MAC eyeshadows!). I got two of those palettes, one for some MAC shadows that are on the loose, and I thought I'll also try a few of the Crush Cosmetics brand eyeshadow pots in the other.  The eyeshadows are $3.95 each. I picked up the colours 10, 11, 12 and 15. The colours are really pigmented, as shown below.




I was also sent 2 free items with my order, a Nyx lipliner in Hot Red and another eyeshadow pot in a purply colour (as shown in the bottom left side of the photo montage at start of the post). There was no sticker on the purple shade so I can't really tell what colour it is.

I also picked up a Wet n Wild eyebrow kit for my mum (top left of the photo montage at start of the post).

And last but not least, I picked up a Lime Crime lipstick in Countessa Fluorescent,  a really shocking blue-toned barbie doll pink which is still quite wearable. I think...

I'm wearing it in the pic below and I really don't think it looks too crazy pink. This is my first Lime Crime lipstick and I quite like it... it's a satiny creme formula with excellent staying power. It does stain your lips somewhat, but I find that the case with most bright lipsticks so I don't really mind.



Have you tried any of the products I've bought?

  12. I really love your lips in pinks just like that, I would look a fool in them but you really pull them off. 2-3 days delivery is amazing, am heading there now. (Any purchases made will be your fault;))

  13. That Lime Crime lipstick is so pretty on you! I may have to check out some lime crime lipsticks soon. I know they have some fun, pastel-like colors like lavender and blue too. But I don't think I could ever wear blue lipstick LOL!

    Thanks Gaby!

    @Vintage Makeup - I haven't tried the the eyebrow kit yet, I got it for my mum but I might try it one time just to see what it's like.

    @Emma - well babe, if you do put an order through Crush you'll have to blog about it! :)

    @Alina - yeah I don't think I could do blue either!

    @Angela - I was hesitant of the colour at first, but now I love it, so who knows it might suit you after all and you don't know it. But yeah, loving the Lime Crime.

  17. After reading this I went to Crush and committed some online shopping therapy myself. It arrived today! Such fast shipping and very affordable products. In case you're interested I bought the Elf Encyclopaedia Eye Editions - Everyday Eye , and NYX Bronze Smokey Look Kit.

  18. Thanks Jen, and why have you not been blogging much lately??? We need to see your fotds again :)

    @Kath - I hope you like your crush cosmetics goodies, I haven't tried either of those so let me know what you think. Oh and i listened to you the other day and went to Soul Pattinson on Pitt St, picked up an Argan Oil hair mask and I LOVE IT. Have only used it once so far but can already tell the difference. I'll do a review of it later.

  19. I can tell you what I think of the two products I bought but I don't want to take up your space... I have put reviews on the items on the Crush pages. Personally the NYX was not good value... colour fine but very small.

  20. Just read your reviews on Crush, so dissapointing about the Nyx pallette, I had heard it from a few sources actually. But glad the elf one is good, the colours look gorgeous for sure.
