Catchup Hauls - Mecca Cosmetica and ASOS

So here is another couple of hauls that I had done in the past month.

The first haul is from Mecca Cosmetica. Around mid to end June Mecca Cosmetica online had free shipping because it was Vogue Shopping Night. Usually free shipping doesn't really attract me since there were no other specials or discounts other than the free shipping but I have been eyeing the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. I have read tons of reviews about this mask and have tried a sample of it which I got when I visited Wellington, New Zealand. After trying the sample out (which gave me 2 uses) I really loved this mask. Plus after reading reviews and blogs on this mask for the last 2 months I really wanted to buy it. However there is no Origins stockist in Canberra. Even though there is a Mecca in Canberra, they do not stock any Origins products. So when the free shipping offer from Mecca Cosmetica online store came up I took the opportunity to purchase this mask...  and of course I ended up purchasing other things as well.

The other products that I purchased along with the Origins overnight mask were Soap and Glory body scrubs: the Breakfast Scrub and the Flake Away body scrub/polish, and I also got the Heel Genius. I got two scrubs because I couldn't decide which one I wanted so I ended up purchasing both of them. I will post a review and comparison of these 2 scrubs once I have used them a few times.

I purchased Heel Genius because I read some good reviews on it too and since Canberra winter is so dry I have really dry cracked heels and the Heel Genius definitely works and helps with my dry cracked feet.

My second haul was from ASOS. This was also products that I have been eyeing. Since ASOS had 20% off on Queen's birthday long weekend last month, I decided to make a small purchase. I have been eyeing the Rimmel Scandaleyes waterproof eyeliner for a while...especially the nude one. I know Priceline stocks these but unfortunately my local Priceline do not stock the nude eyeliner. And because I was running out of my brown eyeliner, I also purchased the bronze Rimmel scandaleyes eyeliner.

Along with the eyeliners I also purchase Barry M Eyeshadow Pencils. I was actually tossing up between the Rimmel Eyeshadow pencils and the Barry M one but I ended up going with the Barry M... I can't remember why... and I am actually quite disappointed since they creased and didn't last long.. but I will post a review and swatches on all these pencils later on.

So these are my 2 hauls from the last month. I am happy with most of the products I purchased so far except for the Barry M eyeshadow pencils. Anyway I will post reviews on all the products in a separate post. Until then...... hope you have a great weekend!!
