Hauling - lipsticks, lipsticks, lipsticks... and a bit more

I haven't done much shopping at all lately, because a. being 37 weeks pregnant I'm a bit limited in what I can buy, and b. I've bought more than enough stuff for the baby already and I'm trying to slow down now until he's actually here.

But when the urge to shop just gets too much what's a girl to do? Buy makeup and accessories of course! Here's what I've bought this week, mainly from online stores and they all arrived at the same time.

I'll do proper posts on these when I get the chance to try them out but in the meantime here is a closer look at the haul.

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Illusoire

After I bought my first Illusion D'Ombre from a blog sale I knew it was only a matter of time before I got another one. Illusoire caught my eye with its silvery purple sheen. I bought it off straweberry net where it was slightly cheaper than at the shops.


Left to right
  • Sleek Matte Lipstick in Amped - this gorgeous purply fuschia shade is perfect for brightening up a winter day.
  • Wet n Wild megashield lip colour in It's a Girl - this was actually included as a freebie with my online order from Crush Cosmetics.
  • Elizabeth Arden lipstick in Coral Vibrations - a perfect coral shade which was 50% off at Myer, do you think I could pass it up? No. 
  • Wet n Wild megalast lip colours in Don't Blink Pink and Mauve Outta Here - I've always wanted to try these budget lippies so when I saw that they were stocked at Crush Cosmetics I decided to give those two shades a go. Can't wait to try them.


This was 50% off at Colette so it came to around $7.00 I think. And I just couldn't resist the red and gold combination which will look great with a plain white top or dress. I can't wait to wear it.

I bought the Chanel at Strawberry Net, the Elizabeth Arden from Myer, the Wet n Wild and Sleek lippies from Crush Cosmetics, and the necklace from Colette Accessories. None of them are affiliate links.

Let me know if you'd like any particular product reviewed and swatched first.

Have you been hauling much lately?


  1. AHH I hated it when I got hot by the shopping bug when I was late in my pregnancy - so many pretty clothes that I couldn't fit into! Good idea going for makeup, the Chanel colour, it's absolutley gorgeous! Lately I have bought a floaty blouse and blazer from Internationale :) xo

    1. Hehe, I knew what you meant! Yep, so many nice things but nothing fits and who knows what size I'll end up being once bub is here. Floaty blouse and a blazer sound nice, love blazers. xo

  2. Love the lippies and want that eyeshadow!

  3. I've been buying SO much nail polish recently! It's just so easy with brands like Australis and Rokk96, so cheap compared to other brands and so many colours!

  4. Great Haul! Love the necklace!

  5. I have just taken a long break from blogging (writing and reading) because I was pregnant myself and Just too damn tired to do anything so i completely missed your news. Congrats!! So exciting!! Not long to go now though the next few weeks will feel like 6 months. I can't wait to 'meet' the little dude, online at least, when you post the big news!! Congrats once again!

    1. Thanks Sarah! Good to see you're back, hope you're handling things ok with TWO bubs now. I've just started mat leave and I'm already thinking the next couple of weeks will be boring and long till my son arrives. Maybe he'll be a little bit early :-)

  6. Those wet and wild lippys are gorgeous! I've never tried them before, please let us know how they work out :)

  8. I had one Topshop haul recently, but not much else as of late. I miss hauling!

  9. oooh love love love the necklace .. the wet n wild n the EA lippies are gorgeous ..

  10. Love that Sleek lippie. Beautiful colour. I have been going a bit Face of Australia nuts recently. My local Big W still had some highlighters in stock so I picked up some more colours and also the new gloss sticks.

  11. Aaargh! I can't wait until my lipstick ban finishes. I'm going to hold myself back a bit I think because otherwise I'll be binging on lipstick! Great choices Lilit, and yes I'm loving that coral! xo

  12. I have Illusion D'Ombre and I LOVE IT - perfect for a quick smokey look!

    Can't wait to hear what you think about the Wet and Wild lippies as I have always wanted to try them!


  13. Can't wait to see your swatches of the Wet n Wild colours!
