Sportsgirl mini haul


Here are my Sportsgirl buys! I love June EOFYS! Do you remember that FOXTEL advertisement where EOFYS was conceived, where they're all singing "Happy EOFYS!"? Well I do, because we had semi that year and all the girls were buying their semi dresses and posting photos on Facebook with "Happy EOFYS!". But it's so great to have End Of Financial Year Sales with all the make-up sales and clothing sales EVERYWHERE.

Since everyone's posting mini hauls from Sportsgirl and whatnot, I thought I'd contribute my two cents' worth. Here's what I bought from Sportsgirl. When I went, I actually only wanted to see if they had any more of their blushers in Peach but they didn't! And the salesgirl was really nice and we had a little chat. Fortunately the Peach blush is a permanent item so they'll be restocking. Unfortunately I'm putting myself on a buying ban until I'm in a better financial position and my bank balance looks more agreeable. So ironic that this is a haulage post.

So like I said, I didn't mean to buy anything when I wandered in! I was only meaning to check out the blushes but I ended up walking out with these:

Two knitted hats for $4.95 each, marked down from $24.95 - I've been meaning to buy one but everywhere I went (Jay Jays, Dotti) was selling them for $10. I like that these aren't the normal knitted ones with the crochet style, but they're something a little different, and I like the colours and the bow. From the tag placement, I think the bow's supposed to be worn at the front but, heck no, I shall wear them however I choose.

Sleep and water posted about the eye brushes she uses and I saw something that somewhat fitted her description (dual ended brush for $2.95) marked down to 95c so I picked up one of these Brush With Fame eye brushes to try. There were more, but I didn't know anything about the quality of the brush so one was sufficient. I'll try them out and if I like them I'll return to pick up a couple more. Wait no, buying ban resolution.

You guys have to hold me to my buying ban resolution! Though if I see a Bourjois 50% off sale I might pick up Healthy Mix because those sales don't come by very often... Gah- no. BUYING BAN RESOLUTION!
Hahaha I'm hopeless. I'll pray for self-control. Take care and God bless! xx

  1. Sportsgirl have blushes now? I'm out of the loop! I'd be interested in checking those out, especially the peach shade you mention. Such cute hats though, great that you got them at such a bargain price :) I love EOFY sales. I see you picked up one of the eyeshadow brushes. They're not the best ever in terms of quality (sometimes they can feel a bit harsh, especially after washing them repeatedly), but honestly, they're cheap and they seem to work fine for me in terms of applying the colour. I use Ecotools to blend. For 95c, I would pick up a few more :p (But I already bought backups).

    1. Brand new, the brush is pretty soft. But the bristles are floppy- I'm interested to see how it fares with shadows, especially the Sleek ones, which have a lot of fall-out. Hehehe I love my hats. And YES I browsed the blushes on the website and Tezza at myteefine had a few posts about them. Hope you manage to find them! I went to two Sportsgirls this week and neither had them. :(

  3. Cute buys, those berets are a total bargain. :) I use shade 53 in both the Healthy Mix and Healthy Mix Bourjois foundations. The shade lighter is also pretty popular for Asian girls. Hope this helps! xx

    1. Ooh, I've only just read your previous post! :x Yes, I use shade 53 in both their Healthy Mix foundations and it suits my skin colour really well. :D

    2. Oh, I've since paid a visit to Target for a swatching session and I found I suit shade 53 too! I asked to get a better idea of what I would most likely be, because Temptalia's foundation matrix said I would suit 55 and I balked. I really want to try both the Healthy Mix foundations! I'm just holding out til a good sale rolls around, and when it does, BUYING BAN BE DAMNED, I will buy them! :D
