I just got my tuition money today and spend a part of it on cosmetics. Again.
I cannot resist the 20% off storewide code at http://www.nonpareilboutique.com/ HAHA.
I have been wanting to try Milani cosmetics for a long time after hearing a lot of rave reviews about them at Youtube and beauty forums, but never actually bought them because they are just too blardy overpriced at John Little's. John's Little has a lot of imported cosmetics that I can easily buy at a thrifted price online. Oh wells.
The 20% off code is a good chance for me to obtain the colours that I want since I already swatched the colours available in stores already.
Items that I bought:
Milani Runway Eyes Wet Dry Eyeshadow
USD 5.99 - 20% off = USD4.792
Retailing in SDG for SDG20.90 each
Got only two colours, Lily white (Left) & Beach sand (Right) as they are meant for everyday all over the lid colour just to give my eye that brightness. I have swatched them already at John Little's before I place the order and their eyeshadows are really really pigmented, comparable to MAC and very finely milled :) Most drugstore eyeshadows are just chalky and very sheer, which is one of the reason why I don't usually like drugstore makeup.
Retailing in SDG for SDG24.90 each
Berry Glimmer Terra Glimmer
They are totally MAC msf dupes and Bobbi Brown shimmerbricks dupes! I have swatched them at John Little's and Berry Glimmer is totally the same as MAC MSF petticoat ! :) Color payoff is totally pigmented and finely milled shimmers.
I also managed to obtain some more NYX cosmetics since my last order. Got items I did not manage to get the previous time.
USD 3 - 20% off = USD 2.40
in milk (pure white milky shade)
Got it this time because my last NYX order, Milk is out of stock. It is just a pure white eyeliner used to brighten the under eye and have that open up eye effect.
NYX 5 Color Shadow Caribbean Collection in I Dream of Jamaica
USD 8 - 20%off = USD6.40
I totally fell in love with the neutrals! Really nice for everyday look I reckon and very safe choice of colours too.
NYX Cupcake Lipgloss Set
USD3.99 - 20% off = USD3.192
Got them because they are so blardy cute and cheap! :D
NYX Concealer Jar in Light
USD 5.00 - 20% off = USD4
Because I have nasty eyebags and I need a salmon colour corrector shade so that my undereye will not look grey.
Red Cherry Lashes in #138 and #01
USD2.50 - 20% off = USD2
Highly raved lashes, that are made from 100% human hair :) They are retailing at SASA for like close to SDG20 per pair and that IS crazy. I got the 2 most natural looking pair :)
My total haul cost me USD51.57 with shipping. I maximise the USD9.99 direct international 1st class shipping since my haul cost almost USD55. Saved USD10.39 thanks to the 20% off code :)
Since I paid via debit card for this, (since it is a relatively small order) which allows me to see my transaction statement immediately, my total haul cost me SDG75.04 only which means the exchange rate that I was charged was only 1.455. Happy! For 10 items! :)
MAC color craft collection WILL make me REALLY broke if I don't persevere. HAISH.
