Sale-iciousness and Rumors of New Eyeshadow Colours for RBR!

Just got an email today from Rouge Bunny Rouge, one of my all time fave brands (which reminds me I need to do a "see my stash" post of all my RBR goodies! - soon I promise) that more items have been added to their Winter Sale.

Concrete Minerals - Naughty & Nice review

After my last post mentioning Black Friday deals (yeah, yeah I know it's January LOL) I found a mini review I did ages ago about Concrete Minerals Naughty & Nice collection that I got in a haul!

Sugarpill Haul - Reviews on the way, promise!

My only haul this past Black Friday was one I had actually waited all year for - Sugarpill's.
Flamepoint palette, Sweetheart palette, Frostbitten trio, Atomic trio and Paperdoll
I missed the sale back in 2012 by a mere 48hrs (being here in Aussieland I didn't really take notice of Black Friday sales dates) and was sufficiently devastated >=( . However I swore 2013 was going to be my year! I only missed out on one item I wanted, Goldilux, which was top-of-the-want-list-worthy but as I was stuck at work waiting for the time difference to kick over I missed the first hour or so of the sale and by the time I hit "buy" on my already pre-filled shopping cart it was sold out.

Anyways, I've been holding out on posting as I wanted to do a super-uber-duper review of all my goodies in one phototastic post, but you' d all be waiting til November '14 at this rate LOL.
So here is a teaser photo of my newly(ish) acquired stash with a blogfelt promise to have lavish individual product reviews up very soon!

Quick'n'Dirty Post

HUZZAH!!!
My Rouge Bunny Rouge samples finally arrived today!!!! (btw screw you Australia Post for totally lying about the date on you "attempted" to drop off my parcel).
After an incredibly lovely conversation about which foundation would suit my skin tone in the Skin Sanctuary range with an RBR customer service rep, they recommended I should try some samples first prior to placing my order. I was concerned about ordering blind as I had already order Wheat Cream which was too dark for me - but luckily matches my summer fake tan (when I can be bothered LOL) so it wasn't a total waste. RBR also included the Milk Aquarelle range for me to try as I was interested in picking that up too!

RBR Sample Package including all shades from the Milk Aquarelle and Skin Sanctuary foundation lines and their new Genesis Primer

So I will definitely be uploading a detailed post with all the swatches of both ranges and my review of them too - I'll also do a review of their new Genesis primer which was included in the package. Unfortunately I can't order any of their fragrances as they are not able to post them to Australia even though the included sample was lovely.

NYX at Target & A Complete Cock Up

Today I wanted to do a quick post about NYX now being sold in Target Australia!! YAY!! I noticed the stand about a week ago in my local Target store and did a complete about-face-double-take and nearly fell over in my surprise LOL.

Rouge Bunny Rouge - Succulence of Dew Sheer Lipstick


I first stumbled across the Succulence of Dew Sheer Lipsticks by RBR while browsing Shameless Fripperies blog. To be honest I was actually trawling Karima's gorgeous blog in search of RBR eye shadow swatches after reading all the hype splashed across the make up blogosphere in an attempt to justify my - let's be honest - impending spending guilt.
So after many weeks of research and constant um-ing and arr-ing, I decided to bite the bullet. Serendipitously, my long winded indecision meant that I was in time for the new RBR web boutique to be launched, saving me from purchasing my goodies from a third party site and paying a significant mark-up/extra in postage.


oh, yes, the lipsticks, that's what I'm reviewing lol.
