ASOS Haul Review

My first ever ASOS  order arrived recently and I just had to share it with you all.  ASOS offer free shipping to OZ, no minimum spend and you can find them here.

Anatomicals ~  Sud The Lot of You ~ Natural Mango and Papaya BodyWash ~ Java Lather ~ Coffee Body Cleanser ~ You Need a Blooming Shower ~ Rose & Jasmine

They have such fun names and they all smell very delicious, my favourite would have to be the Mango and Papaya, very fruity.   I bought the Java Lather for hubby to help wake him up in the morning, smells like real coffee!!

Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer ~ Nova, Luna & Galaxy


NOVA ~ LUNA ~ GALAXY

Apocalips would have to be my favourite lip lacquers because they stay rich and full of colour on your lips for a long time.  Non-sticky, glossy, highly pigmented opaque colour. The only fault I can find it they tend to travel and I need to wear lip pencil so the lacquer doesn't spread into my skin.


POP Love Palette ~ Purple

Comes in a very cute magnetic flat case, just the right size to POP into your cosmetics bag, has everything you need for eyes and contouring.

Sparkle, Shimmer & Matte Shades for eyes and face.  I haven't tried this palette yet so can't tell you what it's like or the staying power, I must admit I bought it because it's full of my favourite colours.  If I like this palette I will do a more in-depth review with swatches.


Bourjois Limited Edition Vintage Blusher ~ Rose Amber & Rose Brune


www.asos.com.au


Gorgeous limited edition pots of colour.  Finely milled, highly pigmented, domed blush, I'm really glad I bought both these shades, they are beautiful.  Sheer application but buildable for more depth of colour.

Bourjois Bronzing Powder ~ Chocolate scented



www.asos.com.au

Highly pigmented matte bronzer,  cute packaging, magnetic lid which reveals four pieces of chocolate bronzer, smells like cocoa and vanilla, I keep opening it and sniffing.  Goes on sheer which is great for fair skin like mine but is buildable for darker contouring.

Korres Lip Butter ~ Jasmine

www.asos.com.au


Another moisturising and non-sticky glossy lip butter, Jasmine is very sheer and there was no hint of colour on my lips.




Korres Mandarin Lip Butter ~ Pink


matillysthisnthat.blogspot.com.au

Contains Mandarin oil, I was disappointed that there was no aroma of mandarins, one of my favourite oils. This is very sheer, even though it's pink there is no colour on the lips. Very moisturising, non-sticky formula, slight pleasant aroma.



SteamCream 3 in 1 Moisturiser ~ Blumen




SteamCream was originally the sister company of LUSH.  SteamCream hand make this luscious moisturiser using high quality natural ingredients and fuse it all together with a shot of steam.  Lovely light weight formula which is surprising moisturising, can be used on your face and body. They are packaged in a range of limited edition collectors tins and they all look gorgeous, you can find out more about them here.

I also bought myself a lovely woollen blend, fully lined, grey swing duffel coat with hood for the winter.

I was very pleased with everything I purchased.  My parcel arrived within 4 days of ordering and everything was packed very carefully.  I was able to get hold of some goodies that aren't readily available in Australia and I was extremely happy with the coat because it was reduced down from $127.56 to $76.54.

I would love to hear what you think please leave a comment below.

  1. I'm surprised you've never ordered off ASOS before! Love all your purchases. I really want to try the Rimmel Apocalips as there has been great reviews about them. I love how the Bourjois bronzing powder packaging looks like a real chocolate bar!

  2. Great haul! Korres is my all time favourite for lip products. I didn't go so well with the Bourjois bronzing powder, the texture of the powder hardened, I had to scrape bits off to get the colour pay off, probably just be my dull luck!! I'm going to pay a visit to ASOS right now!

  5. I have the Bourjois bronzer as well (and the similarly packed highlighter) and can't believe it isn't the HG of all people! Yay Bourjois. I've lost count of the pot blushes and pot shadows of theirs that I bought. And I love your swatch of Galaxy. Wish I'd bought it instead of Nova.

  9. Thanks for sharing, I love this post. The chocolate bourjois is wonderful though it'd probably give me a hankering to drink a hot chocolate everytime I open it up. I also had no idea that Lush had a sister company!! xoxo
