My Minis Collection

Hey Everyone,

Recently I have been drawn to minis, not just because they are cute, but in regards to certain products, I’m more likely to actually finish it if it’s a mini. This is my current mini collection and I am always on the hunt for more brands that do minis and also minis that I can buy regularly.

These are all of my current Tarte minis, recently I did a haul that gave me pretty much all of these and I love it! I honestly don’t think I will ever need to purchase a full size Tarte blush. The blush on the bottom I have had for over a year, and look how little I have used! You can’t use a heavy hand with these blushes, which is what makes them last forever. Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara is one of my favourites and I prefer getting the mini as then I am more likely to finish it before going off or drying out.

The rest of my mini collection! Most of these have either come from Mecca Beauty Loop boxes or from Sephora as point perks. I have another NARS gloss, but I have no idea where it is since I moved, so hopefully that’ll turn up again! I have gotten so much use out of the Too Faced Melted lipstick which has surprised me. Most of these though I have barely used, but I am working on it!

What is your favourite mini to have?

First Ever Dior Haul

Hey Everyone!

Because my birthday and Christmas are close to each other, I tend to collect a few gift cards. Normally I just buy something I have been lusting after, or make the cards work to get lots of little things. This time though, I decided to be a bit more adventurous. I wanted to get something that I would never even LOOK at if I did not have the gift cards, and that of course, is a high end brand like Dior. I have heard so many things about Dior that I knew I could not really make a bad choice.

While I knew I would not make a bad choice, I also knew that I did not want to spend too much, seeing as these are products that I normally do not even think about buying (Spoilers, I totally fail at this). I will admit that the woman at the counter sort of suckered me into getting more products, but I do not hold that against her because I regret nothing and she was the nicest sales assistant that I have ever come across!

Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer 002 ($95)

I don’t have many highlighters in my collection and so I decided to add another one! I also knew that picking up a highlighter would mean that I would have this in my collection for a long time! Which is always desired when you spend so much on a product. I swatched this and instantly fell in love! The powder is stupidly soft and leaves such a beautiful sheen to the skin. The Air Luminizers are not your ‘blinding, shine to the gods’ type of highlighter, which I am actually thankful for, as there are times where I don’t want something that in your face. One thing I have noticed though is that I will need to use a synthetic hair brush as my Nude by Nature brushes have a hard time picking up the product.

Dior Addict Lip Glow 006 ($49)

I had no intention of picking up a lip product, but I was convinced to do so to get the items you will see in the picture below. I have never tried a lip product as expensive as this before. But DAM! I put this on my lips for the first time today and OMG I get the why people love products like this. I have honestly never had something so nice on my lips. I could easily see myself getting the other two shades in this range. The colour you see is a subtle berry on the lips and I could not be happier with this shade. It is going to be perfect on days were I want a little colour on my lips. Thankfully, you don’t need a lot of this to get the pigment, here’s hoping the Lip Glow lasts me a long time!

Gift with Purchase (spend $120)

The reason I bought the lip product was to get this beautiful gift set. I did not plan to spend so much in my first shop, BUT I have no regrets as this gives me a chance to try more Dior products. I sadly wont be using the skin care products or the perfume for a while, as I plan to use them on my up-coming holiday. That red lipstick though, oooh boy I am excited to start using that! I am also in LOVE with the bag, my first every experience with a Dior bag. I had never even touched one, and now I can see why people love them. I get the Estee Lauder gift bags all the time, but this is hands down the nicest makeup bag I now own. I never want to lose this and I never want it to get dirty!

The woman at the counter let me know that these gift bags happen twice a year and are unadvertised, so do not be afraid to ask when they are having a gift with purchase. Because if you are new to Dior like I was, get a gift gives you more bang for your $$$.

I was so thankful to the sales assistant as she also gave myself and Pastels Sparkles a whole heap of perfume samples! So now I am truly set for skin care and perfumes while on holiday!

Please leave me a comment below on which high end brands you want to try! Or even which are your favourite products so I can keep an eye out in the future.
