Haul post: More from Missha (and a bloggers' swap!)

Hi :)

My backlog of posts keeps building at the moment - this post is about some beauty shopping I did 3 weeks ago!  It doesn't help that life's been a bit hectic lately as well, both at work and home, blah, blah...  Besides product photos I would have liked to include swatches in this post as I'd normally do, but that would mean waiting another week before I'd have the time and the daylight to do it.  What I'm saying is this is going to be a fairly superficial 'show and tell' post so I hope you don't mind - I trust you'll let me know if you want to see swatches or reviews of anything in your comments - Please do!

So...after catching up with three other lovely Melbourne bloggers (Norlin, Ling and another Ling!) some THREE weeks ago for a dumpling lunch and a beauty product swap we headed to the Missha boutique for a bit of swatching and spending.  Here's the entire beauty booty I took away with me:  blush, lip products and of course a few more bottles of polish!


Right - let me quickly go through the inventory with a closer look at the individual items...

Nail polish L - R:
Crystal Nail Polish - GPK01
Lucid Nail Polish - PK04

Lip products:
Glam Fit Gloss - WN01
Soft Crayon Lip Rouge (with sharpener) - BE01

Hallelujah! I did swatches of these at least! The super soft and creamy lip crayon and lip gloss look like they'll complement one another beautifully.

 L - R:
Lip Rouge - BE01
Gloss - WN01


Shimmer Blending Ball Blusher - No.2 Peach Glow


 The Missha sales assistants were lovely, very patient with us and, as it turns out, also very generous!  Look at the ridiculous number of samples they threw in for me.  No, they didn't (and still don't) know I'm a beauty blogger - perhaps they can see I'm going to be a very good customer...

 Sample list clockwise from bottom left:
Super Aqua Marine Forest Revitalizing Emulsion
BB Boomer - BB Boosting Cream
Perfect Cover BB Cream (I already have and love this!)
Super Aqua Marine Forest Lifting Serum
Signature Radiance Pore Primer
Signature Real Complete BB Cream


Now, I did mention a product swap.  I'd brought a bag of stuff to swap and was hoping to come home with less than I'd given away but somehow I managed to score all of these lovely things - again I must say thank you to these wonderful girls because I really feel well and truly spoilt with all of this...

Swap goodies clockwise from left:
Trilogy Sensitive Skin Very Gentle Calming Fluid
Gaia Pink Grapefruit & Jasmine Foaming Cleanser
Darling Nail Polish - Discotheque (Glitter baby yeah!!!!)
Primark Nail Polish - Lilac (some weird long-winded code number actually...)
B Collection Nail Polish Crackle Top Coat - White
Face of Australia Lip Quench Moisturising Lipstick - Nude Satin
        "                    "                        "                         - Iced Almond
Nude By Nature Pure Pout Natural Mineral Lip Gloss - Pure Plum
           "                        "                        "                      - Naked Kiss

That's enough all for now!  Remember to let me know what you'd be interested in seeing swatched/reviewed in the comments.

    1. The blush reminds me of Guerlain's Meteorites but at a much lower cost I'm sure. I have NEVER, EVER received so many samples! It was ridiculous but I'm not complaining at all :))

    1. A review of the blush is going to be the first Missha post I do - hoping to catch some good daylight this week if I'm lucky so I can get onto the post as soon as possible!

  8. Have you worn the lip crayon yet? I've been wearing mine all week - LOVE how smooth the application is!! And such a bonus with the sharpener too right?! So, can you swatch the blush because I think I might get one of those when we next meet up. ;)

    1. The lip crayon's so creamy, I love it too Norlin! I'm hoping for some good natural light before the weekend so I can those blush pictures done in time. :)

    1. Thanks Kristy, I'm terrible when I'm surrounded by pretty things. Definitely a kid in a candy store, lol!

  10. Very nice! Those balls are so pretty, LOL!

    I think most of us work a few weeks "behind schedule" when it comes to posts like these. It takes me a week or two to take the pictures and then another week or two to upload the pics and sit down to write. Not like the products are going anywhere, so no need to hurry really. :)

  11. Hahaha!!! That's exactly how it works for me too Liz, and I rely on good natural daylight because I prefer not to take flash photos...AND I haven't got around to setting up a light box yet...so sometimes it takes even longer to get things up! I know things aren't going anywhere but I feel guilty all the same...

  12. I REALLY want the blush but when I went to the QVB last week they were out of the pink and peach :( I was so sad . You've made me want it all over again lol
