[Picture Heavy] My trip to South Africa!

I hope that everyone has been having an amazing February! I recently spent a month in South Africa, the weather was gorgeous and it was fantastic spending time with family and old friends again. I ate lots of good food (too much in fact), relaxed and took advantage of the strong Aussie dollar by squeezing in some shopping.

SHOPPING HAUL

Body Shop haul!

Body Shop haul!

Estee Lauder was around the same price as in Australia, but I picked up the foundation because they stock my shade in Australia. I actually had no idea that they did a compact concealer, it’s probably the first product that I’ve purchased without doing heaps of research first! And I picked up the mascara for around $38 because it came with a free liner and eye cream.

MAC was considerably cheaper, the lipsticks worked out to $20 each. I weep thinking at what I paid for my Studio Fix foundation at Myer last year!

Lastly no haul is complete without The Body Shop! I already had a Body Shop stash at home so just purchased a few shower gels.

I’ve been wanting to try Maybelline’s rocket masacara for ages, but it hasn’t been available here. I’m a huge fan of Maybelline mascara’s so looking forward to trialling it soon 🙂

  1. Hi!:) Maybelline The Rocket is a really good drugstore mascara. It makes your lashes go “va-va-voom”.. Maybelline has good mascaras in general, I feel 🙂

    1. I’m also a huge fan of Maybelline mascaras but I haven’t seen The Rocket here in Australia. I’ve read lots of good reviews on it so looking forward to trying it 🙂

  2. I did IATA (Ticketing Course) right after I got done with school. We were to memorize main areas of every country and now that I read St. Lucia after years.. i kinda miss those days, ha. #RandomMoment
