I'm Back and Huge Makeup Haul

Hey guys,

I am back from my holiday and I did have a wonderful time. I did quite a bit of damage to my bank account this whole month and I thought a haul would be a good way to start back blogging.( Also the fact that I really want to use these products and couldn't do that till I took pretty pictures of it)
Anyways I have grouped my haul into 4 parts so it was easier for me to talk about the products.

First up is all the makeup I bought from India. I really wanted to buy products I wouldn't be able to get my hands on here from brands like Lakme and Chambor but nothing caught my eye. The products I wanted to buy were either not in stock or discontinued. 

Anyways I still managed to buy two lipsticks from Lakme from their 9 to 5 range and the colours I picked were Rosy Sunday- a muted matte rosy pink and Fuchsia Friday- a darker pink with silver sparkle.
Next up is from Maybelline, I have always wanted the Colour Tattoo in Pomegranate punk but it was discontinued here in Australia. When I saw they still had it in India I had to pick it up. Next from Maybelline I picked up the Cheeky Glow Blush in Peachy Sweetie and a Colour Bloom Lip Balm in Pink Blossom. Again these were products I haven't seen in Australia yet.
MAC in India was soooo cheap compared to Australian prices so I bought two Eyeshadow refills in Club and Plum Dressing, Fluidline in Macro Violet and Matte lipstick in Taupe. The store I went to had some limited edition products from last year that were still in stock so I bought the Nocturnals pigment and glitter set in Silver and Violet. They were from the 2013 Holiday collection and I have been enjoying playing with pigments and glitters recently.

Next is what I bought online from MAC while I was on holiday and couldn't help buying this stuff before it was all sold out.
From the Proenza Schouler Collection I bought the Ombre Blush in Sunset beach and Lipstick in Mangrove.
Almost everyone I know in the blogging world has picked up atleast one item from the Alluring Aquatic Collection and I was no exception. I really wanted to buy the lipsticks but they were the first to be sold out. So I settled for the Blush in Sea Me Hear Me and eyeshadows in Sea Worship and Legendary Lure. I also picked up the bronzer in Refined Golden mainly for the compact (which I think will depot and repot my studio fix powder in there, not sure yet but we will see how it goes).
From the Maleficent collection the only thing available were the lashes and since I am really into lashes these days I picked the number 36 lashes for special occasions. Oh and while I was at the duty free store I picked up the Fluidline in Blacktrack.

Continuing with the Online shopping Ozsale had The Balm on sale 6-8 weeks back and I picked up The Balmjovi Palette which I have been eyeing for almost more than a year now and also The Meet Matte palette. From Kit Cosmetics I ordered the Too Faced A La Mode Eyes palette and the Too Faced Bonjour Soleil palette both of which I had planned to buy since their release in the US.

Lastly I picked up quite a few Highend products from Duty free. The Guerlain Les Violettes Pressed Powder, The Cruel Gardenia Meteorite Illuminating powder (which came with a brush), Chanel Jardin de Camelias illuminating powder, YSL Baby Doll Kiss and Blush in 1 Fuschia Desinvolte and finally the Givenchy Le Rouge lipstick in 203 Rose Dentelle.

Phew!! I know I did spend quite a lot but I had been saving for my trip and I am really excited to use all these products. 

Have you used any of these products before and what do you think of them?
