HUGE K-Mart Makeup Haul

Hey guys!
So as you may be aware (if you follow me on my FB or Instagram Pages) I recently went to K-Mart. I had heard through the grape vine that they were having a massive makeup sale, although I couldnt find time to make it there until 1 week into their sale....so my hope were not high.
Lucky for me I live in a rural town.....meaning no massive department stores, and hardly anyone (besides me) perusing the makeup isle! CHA CHING!!! It was my lucky day!
Im not going to lie, a fair bit of makeup was already gone from the main makeup companies (Rimmel, Maybelline, Revlon)....but the brands I was looking for were hardly touched! The Cruelty Free Brands, being Australis and Face of Australia!

Im not complaining! I picked up some fantastic things and saved stacks of money!

I spent $54 all up for  products!!

CRAZY TALK!!

Here is a quick overview and swatches of the items I Purchased!

AUSTRALIS- MINT CONDITIONING LIPGLOSS

Such a stunning colour! this is the perfect lipgloss to compliment any nude lip! So beautiful! Love the fresh zesty mint smell! 

PURCHASED FOR $2

FOA- GLOSSY LIP CRAYON- RASPBERRY COULIS

Beautiful product to work with! Unfortunatly as i was trying to remove the plastic wrapper somehow the lip gloss stick fell out of the tube!! Anyways (if it doesnt break on you!)  it has great colour pay off- you can easily build the colour to make it as intense or subtle as you desire! Very hydrating!

PURCHASED FOR $2

FOA- CARNIVAL NAIL ENAMEL- MANGO SLURPEE

Interesting polish! I thought it was very old at first, becuase the texture was very grainy....then I realized, its just the polish! Its a textured polish! has almost a fur/velvet effect to it! Very nice- I was hoping it would last longer due to the texture...but alas it still chips fairly easily.

PURCHASED FOR $2

 

FOA- BUDGE PROOF EYESHDOW- POISON IVY

I love these products! If you havent yet seen my review check it out here!
I now own the entire collection! YEOW! Such a beautiful colour! deep and sultry but still visibly green!

PURCHASED FOR $2


FOA- BUDGE PROOF EYESHDOW- VIOLET RAYS

very very dark purple! almost greyish black.

PURCHASED FOR $2


FOA- BUDGE PROOF EYESHADOW- MERMAID TEARS  

beautiful metallic bright shade! Super pretty! cant wait to use this baby!

PURCHASED FOR $2

 

FOA- BUDGE PROOF GEL EYELINER- ESPRESSO

OH I CANT SAY ENOUGH great things about these eyeliners! They are such a pleasure to use! so creamy and smooth! they glide on like nothing ive every used before! Just stunning!
I do love this colour as well! has a beautiful metallic sheen to it, with a slight amount of gold reflect.

PURCHASED FOR $2


FOA- BUDGE PROOF GEL EYELINER-PURE PURPLE

Beautiful shade- like all these gel eyeliner in the FOA range it has a metallic hue to it! very pretty, it prevents the shade from looking bland and matte!

PURCHASED FOR $2


FOA- BUDGE PROOF GEL EYELINER- SPARKLING BLACK

Yet another beautiful shade! has very very small silver glitter particals in it- very hard to see, just enhances the metallic/glossy look. Glitter partials are easier to see without a flash!

PURCHASED FOR $2


AUSTRALIS- BLUSH- GLAMOUR

Standard blush- came with a crappy brush (which i wont use). Has alot of shimmer and reflect to it. Not a matte colour at all! Very natural and very similar to NARS Orgasm blush. Great Dupe!

PURCHASED FOR $5

AUSTRALIS- DOUBLE DECKER- GIVE ME SOME SPACE

Great product! Eyeshadow and eyeliner/dark primer all in one! Beautiful colour! the cream eyeliner/shadow portion is very dark- but with a hint of purple. while the shadow is lighter and more intense! will work well together for a simple yet effective makeup look!

PURCHASED FOR $2




FOA- IMPACT CURL MASCARA- BLACK

*Havent used this yet- but here is the product description
"Extreme volume & Curl Mascara"

PURCHASED FOR $5

AUSTRALIS- CREAM EYESHADOW DUO- BOYS & BERRIES 

2 beautiful shades! love the texture! glides on very smoothly, not a thick consistency just smooth like water- however it sets very fast into a gel type finish that wont budge!

PURCHASED FOR $2

AUSTRALIS- CREAM COLOUR- CHOCOLATE TRUFFLE

very pretty colour! can be used for lips and cheeks! very build-able but offers a fair amount of gloss at the same time! great for a dewy makeup look!

PURCHASED FOR $2

AUSTRALIS- PAPARAZZI PERFECT HD BLUSH- POSER

Very pretty shade! perfect for those that want to add a slight hint of colour, and not just rely on bronzer alone! Its very very similar to my skin tone- so it will be interesting to see how it works out with a makeup look!

PURCHASED FOR $5


AUSTRALIS- PAPARAZZI PERFECT HD FOUNDATION-NATURAL FAWN

glides on very smoothly! not full coverage but i feel it can be build-ed on! You would need to wait a few mins between each coat to let the product set and settle it, due to its satiny texture.

PURCHASED FOR $5

FOA- FACE BASE PRIMER

*Havent used this yet- but here is the product description
"Smoothes skin, prevents fading and locks in moisture- Which Vitamin E and Chamomile/Oil Free"

PURCHASED FOR $2

  1. As you probably knew, I live in the U.S.. We have K-Mart here too. I wonder if the K-Mart near me has Australis or Face of Australia here? I'm a vegetarian and am always interested in finding out about vegan and cruelty free makeup brands (thank you for bringing Concrete Minerals to my attention). You got that entire haul for only $54 ? Wow! All of these makeup and skin-care products look great.
