My Haul 25/7-31/7

Today was supposed to be a study day but my mum wanted to go shopping as a family and who could say no to clothing and shoes that aren't coming out of your own wallet? I couldn't.
I went to DFO Moorabin and Myer Westfield Southland.

I bought 3 tops, 2 pairs of shoes, a bag, a jacket and the Marine Life Beauty powder.

My DFO purchases:

This Jacket is from a store called Westco in DFO and it was $25 [50% of $50]. It's above my hips and its quite fitted and has gold buttons with a striped inside. 
I also got a bag from Adidas [my fave sport brand!] that was reduced from $70 to $40. I love the gold print!

My three Review Tops:
This is a black silk top from Review that was $160 and I got it for $53.10. It feels quite nice and would lovely paired with a smokey eye, skinny blue jeans and black stilettos!
This is a black satin like top, I have no idea what name the style would be, but it was quite sexy on me! Showed off my curves really well. This would look amazing with red lipstick;) It was $180 and I got it for $35.10.

This is the same style as the one above it except its halter neck and its a virginal white. The yellow lighting of my lamp changed the colour. it was quite a tight fit but Its something I would love to surprise my bf with;) I would also wear it under overall, preferably the ones with shorts or something. It was $170 and I got it for $17. So it was 90% off!

These are a pair of Geox flats I got from a store that specialises in discount shoes. These were originally $160 and then got reduced to $70 but there was a Buy 2, get the second pair 50% off. SO my brother got a new pair of school shoes and I got these. My bf has been telling me I should get ballet shoes because they suit my image and these reminded me of them. They have a cute bow at the top!

My Myers Purchases:

These are a pair of pumps that are supposed to be nude, they are a greyish peachy nude I suppose. They aren't too high so they wont kill my feet and they looked lovely. They were $60 and I got them for $30? They're from Miss Shop.
My Specktra Clearance Bin Purchases:
This is the much loved Marine Life High-Light Powder from the MAC To The Beach collection. Its really beautiful and i was quite lucky to find it. The gold overspray was gone but since I'm planning on using it, not coveting it, that was fine. This is quite sheer and it gives a really light, buildable glow, although i recommend using it lightly otherwise your cheeks go clownish coral! [I made the mistake today, thinking it wasn't enough. Luckily, its super blendable and I was able to lighten it by blending.] I got it from an Aussie Specktrette who lives in the same city. It was $30 and $7 for postage [$7! Shipping in AUS is super expensive, I'm so envious of you American girls!] So it was $37. It was a justifiable purchase before but now that I have it, I'm thinking I could've gotten a much cheaper dupe in the US. However, this is seriously a beautiful product and I'm glad I got it in the end, although I'm going to limit the use so the starfish doesn't fade!

I also got my super late bday gift this week [my bday was a month ago!] From my friends.
I received:
-Nubar Reclaim
-Essie My Private Cabana
-Sleek Storm Palette
-Sleek Original Palette

These items were on the wishlist I gave my friends. I also had a book on it too but they decided not to get it for me:(

Nubar Reclaim & Essie My private cabana

To tell the truth, I dont understand the hype of the Storm palette. I didn't like the matte brown which was gross. The colours are pretty much black when swatched. However, the pigmentation was generally good and I've used the Oriiginal palette more since I've gotten it.

Next week: Look forward to a review of the sleek palettes PLUS the second part of the Fyrinnae e/s reviews and swatches!
