I don't think it's any secret that I am fond of makeup & beauty products & perfume oils, and I think a few of you
are too, so I thought I would share some photos of my latest "hauls".
I'm going to preface this by saying that I've definitely bought a lot of things lately (!), but 1) I had some money that I -had- to spend by the end of March (long story, it has to do with salary packaging & tax benefits & the end of the fringe-benefits-tax year here in Australia), and 2) by purchasing these from overseas, they were SO MUCH cheaper than buying them here; so things like Nars lipglosses, which are $45 over here, were purchased for between $16.99 - $24 from the two US sites I used. Since the Australian dollar is actually worth more than the US dollar now, it makes for a real bargain (those insane markups made sense when the Australian dollar was worth 60% of the US one, but now?) I have to admit I do feel a little bit of guilt for not purchasing within Australia, the effect on the economy and all that stuff... but if I have money to spend on makeup, well of course I'm going to choose to shop somewhere that I can buy more things!
Don't judge plz... I just have a fondness for pretty makeup >.<

I think I need to go on a no-buy now... for the next 5 years.
